I Was Forbidden incapable of Telling The Truth

There, I fixed that for her.

Poor Sarah, can't even apologize properly

On topic, are any of us surprised? Do you think Dillan Ratigan gets to say all the things he'd like to say on MSBC?

Or Anderson Cooper?

Or whoever else they have working for them?

I'd bet Sarah Palin could tell more truths than our current President Obama...whom has proven to be the Best Liar of them ALL!!!

This is what Palin haters like to do. One little out-of-context snippet is used to deride her. Here is the context in which she used that phrase:

GIBSON: Let me ask you about some specific national security situations.

PALIN: Sure.

GIBSON: Let’s start, because we are near Russia, let’s start with Russia and Georgia. The administration has said we’ve got to maintain the territorial integrity of Georgia. Do you believe the United States should try to restore Georgian sovereignty over South Ossetia and Abkhazia?

PALIN: First off, we’re going to continue good relations with Saakashvili there. I was able to speak with him the other day and giving him my commitment, as John McCain’s running mate, that we will be committed to Georgia. And we’ve got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable and we have to keep…

GIBSON: You believe unprovoked.

PALIN: I do believe unprovoked and we have got to keep our eyes on Russia, under the leadership there. I think it was unfortunate. That manifestation that we saw with that invasion of Georgia shows us some steps backwards that Russia has recently taken away from the race toward a more democratic nation with democratic ideals. That’s why we have to keep an eye on Russia. And, Charlie, you’re in Alaska. We have that very narrow maritime border between the United States, and the 49th state, Alaska, and Russia. They are our next door neighbors.We need to have a good relationship with them. They’re very, very important to us and they are our next door neighbor.

GIBSON: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you?

PALIN: They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.

GIBSON: What insight does that give you into what they’re doing in Georgia?

PALIN: Well, I’m giving you that perspective of how small our world is and how important it is that we work with our allies to keep good relation with all of these countries, especially Russia. We will not repeat a Cold War. We must have good relationship with our allies, pressuring, also, helping us to remind Russia that it’s in their benefit, also, a mutually beneficial relationship for us all to be getting along.

And here is more. ABC News edited out key parts to make Sarah's comments look awkward.

ABC's disgusting manipulation

Yup, Palin derangement syndrome, wow you would think she was the one with all the "phoney" scandals.

It was nice to see a couple poster knew the Palins or of them personally.

We will never what kind of job she would have down.

I think the Op's video links say more about the media than Ms Palin not be allowed to talk about a racist preacher. As for her not being allowed to talk about rascism, what kind of subject is that to winge about?

Who's the rascist here? What about this guy who gave Sarah a blessing,

And check out the video there. Ooooh dear, Ghoulies and Ghosties and fecking Witches, who'da thought.

Here's the Witchy one,

imho Palin acted as though she was on drugs while she was the Govenor of my state. Then there was the strange thing about flying from Texas where she claims her water broke to Wasilla Alaska to give birth to a special needs baby (Trig) at the rural medical center, very smart and truthful indeed!

McCain 2000 would have won with the right running mate
But instead, in 2008, he rebranded himself from the center right "maverick" politician whom had plenty of social liberal stances and seemingly able to work with both sides, to this neocon abomination that crapped on everything he was just to win the primarys.

Then, to make sure he got the most rabid fringe of their party, he invited Palin simply for demographics appeal of women (cause chicks are dumb and easy, put a woman up there and they will auto-vote regardless of mental ability), but also one more bow to the neocon fringe of the party.

And the ship sunk like the stone we knew it would.

Palin isn't a "bad" person. She seems quite personable and homey. I would quite like her as a neighbor...but no. not as a leader. Her policys (the very small handful she actually had/knew about) were superficial at best and very pointedly social conservatism (aka, politician in your bedroom). Everything else was simply sock puppet for special interest Koch brothers nonsense (mainstream conservatism anotherwards...kneel to the Koch).

Maybe she was forbidden from telling the truth...but not as the ops suggests. the truth is, she didn't know what the hell she is doing or what she stood for...and the strategy of bowing to the fringe meant certain doom towards the center (aka, the nation as a whole).

And 2012 had shown they didn't learn their lesson when doubling down on the bad idea.

Yes, Mittens the Romney Unit was always going to be a bad idea. Especially when his own campaign staff started to 'untweak' the polls.

Does anyone know if the Romney Unit is still in its maintenance shed, or has it been repaired after blowing all those circuits after election night?

If you believe that she is some rogue outsider, you may just be as stupid as she portrays herself to be.

Actually, I think Mitt could have done better if he really pushed the business sense of his the country like a company, cut out some expenses, sure..but lets make the employees (citizens) happy to work here. progressive ladders, education, infrastructure, etc....basically apply to the country what you would do to a corporation

Bad corporations don't train employees for free, therefore fall in quality. bad companies don't pay livable wages, therefore are constantly replacing people due to them jumping ship, etc..these are things people can understand.

But instead, they (again) courted only the fringe morons of their the small percent tea party vote somehow counted 2000 to 1.

I'm sorry, bottom line is, there is no way in hell this woman should be let anywhere NEAR the Senate. She couldn't keep her job as governor of Alaska for Cripe's sake! She quit her first term, & she wasn't even there for much of that because she was out on the road with McCain campaigning!

She quit. there is no reason that anyone should trust her again in another leadership position.

She liked the fame, which is fine. I don't blame her for trying to stay in the spotlight. (Actually I encourage it, as she is comedic GOLD)

If I were the head of FOX News, I would give her an hour long show where she could say any bat [snip] crazy thing she wanted and make a fortune off of John Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

What stood out about Palin more than the other politicians trying to woo the public? Well not much really. Her beliefs, her positions and even her talk was nothing special, Republican politicians had been rallying the same policies and rhetoric for years before. She wasn't a 'fresh breath of air' by any standards. The only real difference between Palin and much of the establishment politicians was the fact she was a woman and a good looking one at that. You take this factor away and she's indistinguishable from establishment politicians in government. Her ignorance wasn't something that really stood out to me as such ignorance could have been attributed to many other politicians in government. But her political position was one that continued the same path as the previous administration. Many here would argue that Obama has done this anyway, but even if this is your position, you'd still concede the fact that she would not have been any different.

As for her being hounded by the media, Palin was treated with the same media and public scrutiny that many other presidential candidates were treated to. Obama didn't get it easy then and he's not getting it easy now, even McCain was put through harsh scrutiny in the media. This is to be expected for any would be president, it is a tradition of some sort, a public vetting process. Palin couldn't stand the heat and her supporters insisted that the public and the media give her 'fair' (which really means special) treatment all the while arguing that she was a 'tough' woman that people were so afraid of..... but she needed special treatment? Huh?

Regardless she's certainly not going to be president ever, heck I doubt she'd even hold any high office in the whitehouse, her prospects are nil at this point. She may become a senator but meh, even at that I see her struggling. The OP obviously represents what's left of Palins loyal supporters, those who still feel they need to vent their frustration that she wasn't treated to their standards by everybody 5 years ago in the presidential election prior to last years one. People really need to move on, life isn't fair.

I'm going to add one of more thing here. Hillary Clinton. Well before people even began to realize that Obama had a chance at the presidency Hillary was already the assumed nominee. How was she treated by the media, namely conservative media and political groups at that time? That woman was hounded to no end and alot of the attacks mounted against her were sexist, heck even South Park had an episode mocking her privates. Where's all this sexism talk for Hillary from Palin supporters? Or is Palin the only one in this world who is scrutinized for all sorts of things? At least Hillary Clinton stood by her full time senators position, at least she's still marching strong to this day to the point that many conservatives froth at the idea she may run again in 2016.... says alot about her power in politics. If there's any respect to be given to a woman in politics proving that gender doesn't matter, it should be Hillary, not Palin. Palin pales in comparison to Hillary and the vast majority of people know this.

Is there anyone still unclear that the presidential elections are rigged and do not matter?

I made two threads arguing that Mitt was a throw away candidate that mimicked John Kerry in almost every way, that was what cemented it for me.

If you want to win, you don't use the same strategy that the enemy used to lose to you the last time. Thats what the Rep did with Mitt, and now Palin is saying the same for the 2nd time around.

Stop focusing on the Puppet in chief, and start focusing on the House and Senate elections who are bought and paid for by lobbyist, if you want change go after the *#!@ers who are there longer than 8 years and get rich off the waging of war through their corporate backers in the defense industry.

You people do realize that Sara Palin isn't just a character on SNL right?

Just wondering from some of the responses...

I have no opinion on the matter otherwise. Now, off to save the world.

What difference does it make? No matter who gets into power they will either toe the line or be a victim of some lone nutter, wink wink nudge nudge a nods as good as a wink to a blind man. It would have made no difference to any thing if she had of gotten in. Every thing would be the same as it is today.
