More Palin Lies?

It seems that much of Sarah Palin’s pre-political background may be fabricated, including her claim that she was Miss Congeniality in the 1984 Miss Wasilla pageant. Amy Gwin, 43, of University City, grew up in Alaska and competed in the Miss Wasilla, Alaska, competition in 1984 against GOP vice presidential choice Sarah Palin. Gwin said Friday that she won the …

HomoQuotable – Scott Tucker

“Well, we hit the ground in Minneapolis and, as you can imagine, it’s been quite hectic. The McCain campaign did a brilliant job today of quickly stealing back the spotlight after Sen. Obama’s successful speech in Denver. Sen. McCain’s choice for Vice President, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, is a smart choice on many levels. She unifies the GOP across the …

Oh So NOW They’re Vetting Her

John McCain’s campaign said today that they “have a team on the ground in Alaska” to look more thoroughly into Sarah Palin’s background. Barn door wide open, horse seen accepting nomination.

Wonkette has started a “Sarah Palin Early Withdrawal Watch.” Palin was part of some loopy anti-American group of Alaskan nuts that wants to secede from America. Why does she hate America so much?

Bristol Palin Pregnant – Right Now

I haven’t said anything about the whisper campaign that Sarah Palin’s 17 year-old daughter Bristol (above right) actually gave birth to her Downs Syndrome baby because it just seemed ridiculous and cruel. Even over at Daily Kos, many commenters demanded that posts on the subject be taken down. And yet the story continued to grow and entered the MSM. Today …

Sarah Palin Fights The Entrenched Special Interests Of The PTA

People Magazine asks John McCain what drew him to Sarah Palin. Obviously, I found her to be very intelligent and very well-versed on the issues. But I think the important thing was that she’s a reformer. She’s taken on special interests since she ran for the PTA and the city council and mayor. The courage, I guess, is what most …

The Real Sarah Palin

Duncan Osbourne at Gay City News lays out the not-really-so-gay-friendly background on Sarah Palin. Palin became governor in 2006 after serving as a councilwoman and then mayor of a small Alaskan town. She made an unsuccessful run at becoming Alaska’s lieutenant governor in 2002.
