Washington (CNN)Todd Palin has filed for divorce from Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, after 31 years of marriage. 

In a document filed Friday in Anchorage, Alaska, Superior Court, Todd Palin cites an "incompatibility of temperament" in his marriage to Sarah Palin "such that they find it impossible to continue to live together as husband and wife." The divorce filing and court records use only initials to refer to the pair, with Todd Mitchell Palin listed as TMP and Sarah Louise Palin only identified as SLP. 

Neither Sarah Palin nor Todd Palin or his lawyer has returned CNN's requests for comment. The divorce filing was first reported by Alaska blogger Craig Medred.  Friday's filing includes a child custody jurisdiction affidavit for the family's youngest child, who is 11. The affidavit is a standard form in divorces in Alaska involving minor children that includes information about children who will be involved in custody proceedings.

Palin served as governor of Alaska from 2006 to 2009 and shot into national prominence in the summer of 2008, when the late Sen. John McCain picked her to be his running mate in the presidential race, which he would eventually lose to Barack Obama.

The Palin family has faced notable -- and at times unflattering -- attention in the years since. Bristol Palin was featured in MTV's "Teen Mom OG" last year -- she was pregnant during her mother's vice presidential campaign when she was 17 -- but announced her exit from the show in April, saying, "It took away my peace."

In 2018, the Palins' oldest child, 30-year-old Track Palin, was arrested on domestic violence charges, to which he pleaded not guilty. That case is ongoing. He had earlier pleaded guilty to criminal trespassing in a dwelling after being accused of breaking into his parents' home and assaulting Todd Palin.

Sarah Palin's time since serving as governor has been largely marked by a continuous stream of book releases and cable news appearances. She said in 2015 that she was “ seriously interested” in running for president but ultimately decided against a White House bid.  Thank God from all of us who don’t have to listen to that idiot.


According to court documents obtained by ET last week, Todd cited the cause of his split from Sarah as an “ incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.” The complex wording basically means the same as “irreconcilable differences.”  

When Todd filed the paperwork, he used their initials, T.M.P. and S .P., in hopes of keeping the divorce a secret.  The court probably paid even more attention to it, therefore the opposite of what he was attempting to make happen.

Todd filed for divorce on Sept. 6, the same day as his 55th birthday.  The 50/50 custody split is a good sign.

The couple’s lakefront Alaska home is just one part of their reported $12 million fortune, most of which was generated by Sarah when she ran for vice president in 2008. 

2010-2016  GOV. SARAH PALIN


Our awards are devoted to and recognizing those who did little for the country except tear it apart and prove cranial-rectal dyslexia does exist in 2016 even as far back as  2010.  It is also given for Political and Corporate movements of great distinction some which needed to be flushed twice and claims of fresh underwear were not exaggerated.  

First Sarah Palin:   Though the competition was fierce, one eventually rose to the top by quitting!   Falling from grace after suckering millions in fees and pledges while getting ousted by FOX news who can’t stand her anymore, we had a winner.  

We chose her because even with all the death wishes raked on her, she is a survivor appearing at a few events for in 2016,  thats five years of shrill annoying conversation over nothing, no facts just demeaning rhetoric.  The female version of Don Rickle’s!

She’s older now, losing a bit of that model look, dumber than a rock, actually dumber than titanium, harder than the average rock, insulting as ever, eager to throw her two cents in, to a five dollar ante poker game.   


U.S. veteran and war/combat survivor Chris Mark had some harsh words for GOP pundit Sarah Palin in his post on the website  After Palin’s son was arrested for domestic violence earlier last week, she blamed his dangerous and drunken episode on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Chris Mark is a PTSD survivor, and found Palin’s political ploy to divert her son’s crime very offensive, as have many Americans and American veterans. 

I recently read your comments related to PTSD in which you attempted to excuse your son’s arrest on domestic abuse charges and firearm charges by referencing his supposed PTSD.   Based upon your previous comments I am not surprised that you would choose to use this very serious condition as a political football and, once again, attempt to divert blame from your own family’s abhorrent, violent behavior.

In 2014 your entire family was involved in a late night ‘drunken brawl’ at a party in which Track Palin (the accused domestic abuser) was involved in a bloody fight.  While you publicly stated how proud you were at your children’s violent actions, maybe this should have been a sign that Track has a problem.  

It is certainly curious that you did not feel the need to reference his supposed PTSD in this situation and instead stated: “…my kids’ defense of family makes my heart soar!”  Maybe, instead of encouraging Track’s violence, you should have taken the opportunity to get him help.  Maybe, instead of being the result of PTSD, your son was simply trying to uphold the stated Palin family values and “…make your heart soar” by abusing a woman.

While I do not propose to speak for all veterans, I am clearly not alone in my views regarding your unfortunate statements.  They were unfortunate for the many veterans who face further disdain and discrimination based upon your inaccurate and ignorant portrayal of those who suffer with PTSD as well as the causes of the condition.

While I would personally prefer that you simply avoid public life and simply fade away.  There are a number of veteran’s organizations to which you can donate time, money and energy to make a difference. Two organizations you may want to consider is the Marine Reconnaissance Foundation and the Recon & Sniper Foundation. 
Chris Mark

Thank you Chris Mark for service to our country, and publicly speaking out against the odious, repulsive, and ever-ridiculous Sarah Palin. More importantly, thank you for your courage and the great service you continue to give to those suffering with PTSD around the world.


If you can’t say something smart written by someone else, keep quiet because your stupidity and babbling ignorance will flow basically unstructured drivel spiced with yups and yips and the profound rebel “by crackies”.  That is the Palin way, lots of nothings.

She was once a very beautiful woman, her aspirations to become a model show in her good well cared for looks, her smile, her hair, her poise, confident  posed walk and those wonderful Bancroft glasses.  Two and a half years later she is a brand.  Well,  kind of outdated brand.  The speed of light is so much faster than the speed of sound, her words got there after the blinding light and sheer tons of bullshit fell from the skies.   The Palin Brand and like so many products that hit the market, they rise and then they fall.   Some recently compared her to the rebuild of the GM car line and then millions of recalls.  

Inspite of her being relegated to a back seat on the political scene after losing, first in the election, second at FOX news, she still manages to outshine most others in the supreme idiot category of  stupidity only bowing to Michelle Bachmann, AKA “Bat-Shit Crazy”.  Michele who easily outshines Palin in  “STUPID” has been quiet lately because of an investigation and her announced retirement from Congress.  The house clean up committee noted she should be charged for all this Bat-shit since most of her comments went over like Bat-shit.  But back to Palin whom we see as Moose sh*t.

01-16-2016 - So Sarah Palin went on Greta Van Susteren’s show last night and one of the “ questions” was about what she thought of President Obama’s reference to America’s “Sputnik moment" during his State of the Union address.

Just about everyone knows that the phrase "Sputnik moment" refers to America's response to the Soviet launch of the Sputnik satellite and how it galvanized the nation to make the scientific and technological advantages that allowed us to go to the moon and beyond, but not Sarah Palin.   To Palin, the Sputnik moment was a bad thing for America and the fact that President Obama "would aspire Americans to celebrate" it represents a "WTF moment." Why? Because, she says, Sputnik “ Resulted in the inevitable collapse of the Soviet Union."

Of course, the collapse of the Soviet Union had nothing to do with to do with more than just Sputnik (and does Palin really think its collapse was a bad thing?),  but the point of President Obama's speech wasn't that we should emulate the Soviet Union -- it was that we should emulate our own history and our own response to Sputnik.

Palin obviously didn’t understand that, which makes for a truly remarkable 45 seconds of television -- quite possibly the stupidest 45 seconds of babbling by a current or former potential presidential candidate in American history till T-RUMP came along. 

Occasionally working backstage during a political campaign is a chance to see what really goes on during the war of words, unexplainable phrases, and scads and scads of spin, it’s enough to make a Whirling Dervish dizzy.   

The press drove from Tampa to Orlando, West Palm and the official Republican Stop, the Village’s, a huge manufactured city in itself, home community of 75,000 houses designed for seniors that offers thirty-three golf courses and lots of speeches as long as you are a devout Republican, Republican Supporter and having hopes of being buried next to Ronald Reagan former President and the last compassionate Republican. 

The crowd living there rarely gets anything from the outside other than a Republican Book signing.  This is because the villages are owned by one of the largest supporters of the Republican party.  She took the stage and the screeching of chalk on the blackboard is the only way I would describe her combined with a rhetoric of complaint.  All she does is complain, no answers, no solutions, just pick, pick, pick.  If you dissect her words, you find a  person so self-enamored she is happy saying anything, no matter how stupid or ill-thought just to get attention.  

The letters in the word COMPLAINS jiggled around becomes PALIN MOCS! After the second speech of the day, and too far for a cab home I closed my ears. I had enough, I let the others drive, and fell asleep.

She is one of the sharpest, most manipulative, and self sufficient individuals on the planet.  The Republicans thought they knew her but she is most of all a survivor, opportunist and a lot smarter than some of them.  Her only problem is she’s not intellectually intelligent, shoots from the hip, has bad writers and handlers and she pays no attention to them either.  
And she lies as the Chicago Times found out.

Her statement that she is a hockey mom would not rate high on meters, but rated well with real hockey moms.  She never was it was a lie.  The comparison to pit bulls backfired as a female pit bull is a bitch.  In one sense she did get it right.   And the hockey MOM taught her daughter well,  allowing her daughters boyfriend to live with them and oops daughter is pregnant.  Twice, they spin a fast marriage story to cover the growing embryo.

Her Thoughts on Marijuana  June 18, 2010, Palin calls marijuana use by adults a “ Minimal problem".  When you have nothing to say that's intelligent, you say nothing and dodge the bullet.  In an appearance on Fox Business  Sarah Palin expressed a somewhat lenient view on the enforcement of marijuana laws. “I'm not for the legalization of pot," said Palin.   But “If somebody’s going to smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody any harm, then perhaps there are other things our cops should be looking at....”  



In the end mature voters came out saved the day.   She walked around McCain without even a fight. On some road stops she completely overshadowed him.

The crowds, admittedly pro right wingers Republican, all these speeches are nothing but preaching to the choir to get them excited, and she did. The chants were Sarah! Sarah!.  The loved her and who was that guy on the stand next to her.

Statements were made that she was fully vetted and qualified for the job.  In her own words, a pit-bull with lipstick, a soccer mom and Apple Pie America all rolled into a cheerleaders figure and a pageant queens posture.  

The only thing missing it seems is correct use of the language, knowledge of the country she lives in, and an intelligent thought process.  He vetted on the level of pure idiot on those terms.   She claimed to be a  “Soccer mom”.  Though vetting said otherwise by major papers who sent real reporters to Alaska to get the truth.  It was catching up very quickly.

She is very religiously outspoken, way over the top, ad nauseam.  She really wears it on the sleeve, and manages to draw the Evangelicals out of the tombs  That’s the group that can’t separate religion, government and a bad bowel movement. 

Her church, the third one she belongs to,  after being asked to leave the last two, in a town of 8,000 are thinkers, actors, and participants in some strange acts on occasion much like the Taliban who put religion ahead of state.   She is Pentecostal though they don’t claim her.  This cellphone shot shows her faith is being scrutinized after YouTube videos show her practicing an assertive brand of Pentecostalism called “spiritual warfare.” By  Dr Muthree, another clown whose last ritual was destroying and elderly woman in Wasilla. 

The pastor whose prayer Sarah Palin says helped her to become governor of Alaska founded his ministry with a witch-hunt against a local Kenyan woman who he accused of causing car accidents through demonic spells in Wasilla and at one point had over two hundred followers harassing the woman which drove her out of town trying to stone her.  We didn’t make this up.

Oh, those vetters from Chicago really started getting the news.  This is stuff you can’t make up.  

See for yourself by searching for Palin - Muthree on Youtube and you personally will thank GOD for making sure she doesn’t get within ten miles of the White House unless they are looking for an upstairs chamber maid.  Do not invite her to your church either.

At a speech at the Wasilla Assembly of God on June 8 this year, Mrs. Palin described how:  Pastor Thomas Muthee had laid his hands on her when he visited the church as a guest preacher in late 2005, prior to her successful gubernatorial election and his renouncing of the demonic woman and the police forced into shooting a snake, a large Python which was demonic, holding back 200 followers who were going to stone the woman to death.

He managed to get her protected against Voodoo, clearly certified by an African guest minister dancing around her with the results on You Tube.  There is even a Voodoo Sarah Palin Doll available on the web. complete with heels and assault rifle if you are afraid of Wolves in your neighborhood.



The real vetting took great investigative work by the Chicago Tribune Staff who separated the wheat from the permafrost chaff. They ran down the real story. More spin than all the Dreidels on Hanukah. Much of what was said about her by herself and even the Senator was minimized   

The McCain team must of hired the best resume writers in the world to create her.  There is the little truth in her profile, but not as lovely as the pundit spin when it came out. We were going to use the Politico Meter for truth but it hit the false side so much, the needle fell off the gauge.




Whoopee, that should appeal to the gun lobby and a few loose cannons floating around.   I too was a dues paying member, a proud fellow member of the NRA.  In addition, I was a Competitive  “ B” Class  IPSC Shooter and am a Certified IPSC Combat Range Officer, at some point in my life I also shot  Sporting clays, trap, skeet, 3-gun matches and so forth.  

Lifetime membership means she paid her dues in one shot, WITH DONATION, filled out the forms and she gets the magazine.  In addition, she’ll now receive discounts on all re-mastered Charlton Heston movies.   It certainly adds a lot to any resume, and in Politics it means financial support from the NRA, one of if not the strongest lobby groups in Washington. Today it means you are a political hack and part of a bad team that could care less about dead children and consequence.


I understand cultural difference. Alaskans are frontier-minded survivalists.  They hunt, on foot and there are great show about hunting for FOOD and SUSTENANCE  please watch the Alaskans or Discovery channel.   

As governor she could shoot Wolves after a chase from a Helicopter or Light aircraft.  So could I, after you have nearly run them to death. Wolves run down and exhausted by chopper or light pane are more like sitting ducks.  

Having Sarah Palin do a TLC show on Alaska and Conservationism, green thinking and such is like having a forum after asking Hitler, Mussolini, Pol Pot and Stalin to explain crowd control.  She truly is a lying scumbag and Sarah Palin is no friend of any of God's creatures. “Noah would call her a subversive”.  Several civic groups in Alaska do not agree with her.  Search the web for Palin and Hunting. Wolves don't taste good; their main asset is their coat. So why kill them, just trap them and send them as unrelated breeding stock to Yellowstone.

She will be good for the National Rifle Association, they ate up those fake scenes in My Alaska where she shoots a herded and literally corralled Caribou at 100 yards with a scoped rifle and three coaches, camera men, sound techs and guides. They had set rails to guide the Caribou victim into the shoot zone which a blind Neanderthal with a frying pan could hit.  They did everything but paralyze the Caribou first, trapped like a rat. 

I was hoping in the bear scenes one would charge after her.  That’s what would make a show I would watch. That would be reality in Alaska where the real people seek a solace with nature.  Not a killing for the camera,  not this staged infomercial about herself.  She is as fake as the words and scenes she created, thats not Alaska, which is reality, not a reality show.  She is a sham to the good freedom loving people of Alaska who deserve better.


She quoted all the fine things she did on the Wasilla school board. She belittled the President as never serving on a school board. Then the truth came out. A Johns Hopkins University study named Wasilla High School as a “Dropout Factory”. Wasilla’s rate was 65 percent in 2006, a number that was much higher than most of the schools in the Mat-Su district. Only 58% of incoming freshman graduated as seniors. The schools there have a terrible graduation rate.  No real improvements brought to the schools.  


She made big noise how she managed her city and gained experience.  Her claim to fame was being the mayor of a town with the population of my subdivision in Florida.   Well, close, Wasilla had 10,256 in 2008.  My town, Largo is 72,000 in a larger city of several million.  ALASKA's entire population is about 700,000.  We have more people in the Tampa Bay area than all of ALASKA and as many unique problems as ALASKA. 

Their budget so hailed by Palin as management qualified could be figured on the back of a paper grocery bag with a pencil and no calculator like they did when I was a grocery delivery boy in the late 50’s.  

Yet she claimed she had great management experience running Wasilla.  Not what we heard.  Not what the team was told.  I would put her up against any of the those fifth graders on TV with nothing more than Monopoly experience.  And guaranteed they would smoke her in head to head fifth grade questions.  And you can’t see Russia from her back door, maybe the grass she smokes helps her vision.


Family planning… her own daughter, remember this is the school board lady, needed a GED and while laden with child still went on the Alaskan Outback Family Values VP Campaign Tour with the prospective husband Levi holding hands.  It made great photo ops but he was smart enough to bail than join the Palin mob.  Was he? 

They got plenty of money now and he could of had a free ticket. Unfortunately he bailed from the tour and the daughters life after dumping the daughter, indicating he wanted to dump the whole deal.  

The prospective father of her wedlock child didn't graduate either.   BUT he was sleeping in their house and obviously in her daughters bed every night and that’s how babies are made last time we checked.  


Family values are a Palin trademark. Which brings us to the In-Laws or is it Out-Laws.  Good thing the wedding got called off.  The future mother in law, Levi’s Mom, got caught for selling drugs (Oxycontin's) and is in Jail. 

She did not pass GO and those get out of jail cards for free did not work in this town.  And lately Levi has become a tell-all of her personal life, which doesn't exactly match her made up resume. There is bad blood there now.                        


Alaska politics play rough.  But it's also big on lawsuits and she was named in legal battles concerning abuse of power. They started piling up.  You see her job as Governor was a lot like her vetting, sooner or later the truth started coming out and she felt she had established her brand and it would solve her problems so she quit as Governor claiming she was doing it for Alaska.  

Truthfully no one with brains believed her.  She's doing it for money from the book, legal bills and innumerable charges coming from the state legislature. The Alaska legislature went after her for violations of abuse, too many to mention but it is estimated her legal fees exceed a half million dollars so far.

Dump Alaska, maybe before they dumped her?  Now that’s unique set of events and so are the people in Alaska who deserved better than the 1000 dollar checks she handed out from the rebates of the oil tax fund. That explained  her popularity. Give everyone a 1000 dollars and even the meth-heads will fill out the forms. They did, meth prices soared days after the checks came out.

Alaskans are incredibly unique people. Survivalists who live by the land, off the land and with the land.  Yes, weather is a factor, but the purity of life for some is more rewarding. They are multi-tasking survivalists. And the state does have problems with drugs and booze. 

It seems everyone in Alaska loves fishing and hunting which in some ways supports "eating values”. I have no problem with that.  Think about it, when two hundred miles of tundra separates you from the nearest Publix Supermarket, that moose in the front yard looks like the meat department’s free home delivery both fresh and nicely packaged.  Hang in a tall tree.



Chicago Tribune:  “That luxury jet was over the top,” said Sarah Palin, the Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, said to loud cheers. “I put it on eBay”.  Congratulations  Yes she did. BUT it did not sell. Did not sell three times. And E-bay still gets a fee. 


FIRST LIE - The 23-year-old 10-seat WestWind II was sold in August 2007 for $2.1 million to a Valdez, Alaska, entrepreneur; that’s about $500,000 less than the broker’s asking price, plus commission.  The plane, bought by her Republican predecessor whom she beat in 2006, was listed for sale three times on the San Jose Internet auction giant. 

But no one ever met the minimum bid. The plane was listed with an asking price of $2.5 million in 2007. The state had paid just under $2.7 million for it in 2005.  Finally, the state turned to an aircraft broker, who sold the jet to an Alaskan businessman for $2.1 million". Only the book keepers know how much the state spent refurbishing and upgrading the aircraft so we will never know how much they really lost.

SECOND LIE -  John McCain, however, took the claim a step further just days after Palin’s speech, suggesting that Palin had not only sold the plane on eBay, but made money on the deal as well.  At a campaign stop in Wisconsin on Sept. 5, McCain said, "You know what I enjoyed the most?  She took the luxury jet that was acquired by her predecessor and sold it on eBay — and made a profit!”   IN ALL MY YEARS I WROTE JOHN, one of my most admired people,  AND TOLD HIM WHAT REALLY HAPPENED... He was embarrased that he had been lied to. 

THIRD LIE -  But that wasn’t the case.  They lost a ton of money.  In addition, that aircraft had the size and range and not only used for the governor but it served to transfer Alaskan prisoners to jail in other parts of the country. 
This was one of its primary functions. Now the state pays for that trip on Commercial Carriers requiring more people to go along.  They transfer their prisoners to Colorado, as Alaska doesn't have the resources for prisoners. So now they go commercial flights mixed in with you and me and Palin rented a really nicer bigger more expensive bird.  Bottom line, more untruths.


Here is a gal that doesn’t know what she reads BUT just wrote a book.  Actually someone wrote it for her.   Unbelievable that people actually follow her. In Charles Gibson’s interview, she still failed World Politics 101. 

In Katie Couric’s interview she failed the entire semester even with Senator Joe Lieberman coaching her.  She had no clue as to what the Bush Doctrine was and its quite simple “Attack the bad guys before they attack you”.  Not knowing the Busch Doctrines is one thing, not knowing the job of the V.P. is an insult to the party, the people and the whole way we elect folks to the highest offices in the land.  

Her answer to “ What is the role of the VP" was astoundingly ignorant. The VP has one role, to take over if anything happens to the President.   She replied, “as VP she would go to Congress, and tell them what laws to pass, and direct how things are done”. It got worse, almost embarrassing, for McCain knew at that point his boys blew it. Big time. Get out the recipe books boys, and look up “Cooked Alaskan Goose”. 

False statements, cut’s and snips and not even knowing what you read or say really sends up the flares. Like watching repeats, Katie Couric had a classic field day with her.  It was not intentional, as Sara would have it, you know the liberal press excuse, all the dumb answers came from one mouth to simple no-trick questions. Except on FOX TV, the station of the Legion of Doom. She simply knew nothing about almost anything.  

One question in particular was extremely difficult.  What do you read?  She had no clue what papers she does read.  Couric said “It’s usually printed at the top of the first page or on the cover".


She is married to “The First Dude”, who for some reason doesn’t speak, BUT, is silent, he doesn’t speak about anything. It was like a gag order backstage. We can just assume who wears the mouth in that house and rightfully so since keeping him quiet prevented the public from learning… wrong.   What we do know is he is a commercial fisherman during the season, four or is it five time winner of the ski-machine races across Alaska, a qualified steel worker and also works for BP.  And then in January 2010 it, the truth leaked out.  

He was more involved in the running of ALASKA then was let on based on over 3000 emails that leaked out after being requested under the information act regulations.  The news, Oh my GOD… He was a DEMOCRAT - A Registered Democrat, and also supported the Alaska Independence Party, for seven years, holding office, which would like for Alaska to leave the United States and declare its own sovereignty.  


Somehow her “Soccer, Hockey, Moose Hunter Mom image carefully selected by the couture authorities at the local Wal-Mart look didn’t quite “fit the picture “ of a Vice President.  So McCains handlers made sure she had a few accessories to go with her budget thrift shop wardrobe. So they re-created her and the RNC got screwed. 

The expenses for clothing etc. included $75,062 spent at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis Minnesota, and $41,850 in St. Louis in early September. Tip of the iceberg, we were clothing a family.  So $40,000 for the guy who doesn't talk, the first Dude and it didn’t stop there. The daughters got treated pretty well with $175.00 shoes.  I can get at BASS shoe stores six pair for that. I just did, I’m bad on shoes. That wasn't all! So we looked further. We found $22,000 for makeup, $10,000 hair and her handlers got another $20,000. The total after the election kept going up as the bills came in and the real figures are probably never going to pop out.  


The Republican party should get the $10,000 back from her Constitution handlers because in another interview with Nancy Pfotenhauer,  who was Senator McCain’s hard hitting blonde attack talking head, Nancy couldn’t define the job of the Vice-President either to Chris Mathews.  Lotta dumb gals in that GOP crew.



I'm being nice, I have trouble digesting her. On the subject of food, no one will ever forget the Thanksgiving Turkey pardon on You Tube. While blabbering and blabbering on, after she pardoned the Alaska turkey for thanksgiving, turkeys were being slaughtered live on screen in the background.  

America got to see just how they had be dispatched (Ok be-headed) and bled off hanging upside down in the “ one of Death".  

She stayed cool, not listening to her film crew and you hear it on the tape, they were telling her, this was not a good background and she just blabbered on and on and on.  

Meanwhile blood and dispatched turkeys all over the frickin place and the gentleman in the background is staring at her like, is this real?  

His moment of fame with the Governor and he’ll make the six-o-clock news.  I’ll show them, two turkeys at a time.   No one can be so enamored with ones-self to appear to be a national spokesperson of any caliber or venue with animals being slaughtered in the background. But those are small points as to how much she gained during the race.  But in reality how people were noticing how stupid she really is and with John’s age and health putting her in a position as a possible Presidential candidate... a dangerous position for the country.

Sarah was a mistake, really bad judgment in the McCain camp.  But the financial awards were incredible. She made the best of it to her credit and a couple million dollars on a book deal she never wrote and even more from the endorsements and speaking engagements. This year she will probably gross 12 -15 million, a fair paycheck for popularity, cunningly smart, a survivor and not afraid to take chances. 

Quitting as the Governor takes back all the wonderful words she spoke about her love of Alaska.  That was till it didn't suit her anymore. Sarah Palin is for Sarah Palin. She made noise, got the book deal and the millions. For that I applaud her, she outfoxed the wolves on that one, and then shot the other wolves.

Did Sara Palin really write her bio or was it a compilation of events glorified and put together just like her handlers at McCain camp created for her.  For someone who could not answer when asked what she reads  how did she write that book in three months...?  It finally leaked out.   

The hidden co-author for, “Going Rogue”, is no other than Lynn Vincent, a writer and features editor for World Magazine. Which is no surprise. World Magazine is a right-wing super wacko Christian Publication.   As a religious publication WM makes anything the John Birch Society writes or publishes look pale by comparison. The Taliban wished they had such good writers.

Lynn Vincent has written many articles for that magazine and co-written several books including, Donkey Cons: Sex, Crime and Corruption in the Democratic Party.  I think we’ll go after her one day.  


Of all the falsehoods and distortions in the political discourse this year, one stood out from the rest. It was a quote from Sarah Palin.  She said, “ Seniors and the disabled will have to stand in front of Obama’s Death Panel so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in society, whether they are worthy of health care.”  The claim set political debate afire when it was made in August, raising issues from the role of government in health care to the bounds of acceptable political discussion.  Sarah Palin posted it on her Facebook page.  Seniors including neighbors of mine got scared. 

Her assertion, “ That the government would set up boards to determine whether seniors and the disabled were worthy of care spread through newscasts, talk shows, blogs and town hall meetings”.   

Still others scratched their heads and said, "Death panels? Really?”  The editors of, on the Web site of the St. Petersburg Times, who do a fantastic research job, chose it as the inaugural "Lie of the Year."  PolitiFact readers overwhelmingly supported the decision. Nearly 5,000 voted in a national poll to name the biggest lie, and 61 percent chose “Death panels" from a field of eight finalists.


Regardless of my input on many occasions to change the name of the party to the TEA POT party, they have steadfastly refused to capitulate. Why not? OK, maybe just the POT party because if people believe her they must be on something stronger than Oxy-Codeine and Excedrin.  They used the name "Tea Party”  because it denotes the image of the Boston Tea Party.  When the founding fathers dumped some fine English Tea (from India) in Boston Harbor. It’s patriotic, symbolic and a courageous act for it’s day.  Read the real story...  THE REAL TEA PARTY - Boy she was a stupid as they were, first it created a war and second TEA does not grow well in the United States. But we sure could make beer!
I think it
’s called Samuel Adams.


She was the guest speaker who earned $100,000 dollars to entertain a group of 600 folks who paid $349.00 each (for the Lobster dinner, other fees 200.00 total $321,000) to hear the same old barbs and shots at the President and the administrations problems.  Mostly white prejudiced old time GOP assholes with money.

Barnum was so right. Every minute another self centered selfish jerk is born. Her most critical remark, just one in particular was to blast President Obama of the United States for using a teleprompter.  

Well, when you have something intelligent, noteworthy, lengthy and want to stay on track, often enough, and different from Washington bi-speak to say, a tele-prompter certainly helps.  

If you say the same thing over, and over again, time after time, and none of it changes, you can use the tried and true HAND-JOB.  She only had four topics to remember as investigation proved there was nothing written on her other hand.  She makes the hand job proud.  She is a hand-job.  Yet on her defense, ten years ago she was voted most likely to be popular working in an Alaskan brothel, how can someone be that pretty and so despicably stupid and ignorant.


She attacked the President of the United States with one of her Nit-twits. She said and we quote with all the elements unchanged. 

Her twit was certified by the Gremkin-Fraguli Institute as “ so frickin stupid, it’s not making sense”.  It’s rumored. "Three crypto agents at the CIA were sent to the hospital after collapsing trying to make sense of this gibberish.  Their condition is serious”.   

This woman is as brilliant as a burnt out lightbulb in the middle of a firefly convention. This is the gal who has never had a real open press conference, refuses to answer questions from the press at speaking engagements, talks about a book she never wrote, and is more irritating than chalk on a board.    

At least you can erase the board. And she's lecturing to the President who is quite vocal on his opinion of the BP president. She should keep her mouth shut unless she is will to use it to soak up oil.

Sarah has a problem with direct questions.  She will not take them.  When asked she gets the deer headlight syndrome. One of the photog’s I covered her with showed me that.   McCains people really blew it I thought he could win.


100,000 Dollars a speech, some critics, thought that was a lot of bread for a standup comic with old jokes especially since it was all about stimulus money being wasted. These were conservatives wasting money because they knew what she was going to say before she said it, lots of good Republican money.  But with the GOP running the show it was more of an attack on them.  They were too stupid to realize that.

Oh, had they only vetted her out correctly for McCain, he might of been the President.  I can see McCain waking and walking night after night, talking to himself saying to himself, ”Why did I listen to these Frickin idiots”.   

He lost an election, an opportunity, popularity, public confidence, and a possible tough challenge to his re-election to the Senate. For him alone, this history lesson is similar to Pandoras Box, it should never of been opened or written. Thank his handlers.  Pandoras box, in Greek Mythology, was actually a vase not a box, never should have been opened and all the terrible things never would have gotten out.  Zeus must have used it as a bedpan.


The real Republican party knows words alone mean little.  Sarah Palin is not that person, she lacks the simple, yet intellectual fortitude and ability to sort out the answers.  And she is played them like fools. That will displace anyone really talented to try to make and lead a viable party.  Till Donald The T-RUMP came along. But thats another story.

Her mantra "Drill, Baby, Drill" was cute, and a lot of idiots cheered her on at these whistle stops but maybe they should be in Louisiana right now or any of the other gulf states about to be decimated by off shore deepwater drilling.  It now represents the biggest disaster in the history of the United States,  SPILL, SPILL, SPILL, is what she is was all about.  Stupid remarks oozes out and then they have to clean up after her. That seems to be all she has to offer. 

This will be a long and ongoing project, you will not see the end of her, she will survive, I guarantee it and maybe not a President of anything other than  THE NEW ERA OF PALEONTOLOGY , which will be followed by the ERA of  PALINTOXOLOGY.  Her rhetoric does nothing but poison good minds. Her mind does nothing but poison the earth.


In Vanity Fair,  Michael J. Gross, a great writer takes a hard look at Palin's "surreal new world."  My writer friend described her as “  a very believable fraud energized by greed, and fabulous sized by the media”   who get bored trying to get an intelligent story out of Washington.  Sarah sells, not intelligence but conflict and diversion. 

During hundreds of interviews, says Gross, “ heard of Palin giving a generous tip” just once: In front of a large crowd at a chocolate shop in St. Joseph, MI, she slipped the owner a $100 bill “for the staff” and charged it to the GOP.  Without an audience, she stiffs the bellhops and maids at the luxury hotels she stays at during her grueling speaking schedule, or at best under-tips.  At the celebrity-friendly Hyatt in Wichita, KS, "Palin ranks as the all-time worst tipper."

An important concept in Alaska, the North Star shows up on the state flag, in the state song, and even as a symbol for God.  Move over, God, says Gross: "Palin is on the way to making North Star a personal brand." It serves as her code name at hotels, dots her speeches, and identifies shell businesses run by her aides. “ f she ever does run for president, [North Star] might well serve as her Secret Service code name.”

When Gross first heard tales of Palin’s volatile disposition, he says he “ Couldn’t help but wonder if it might be exaggerated.” But "corroborating" stories piled up. One family friend recalled a fight between Palin and her husband, Todd: "They took all the canned goods out of the pantry, then proceeded to throw them at each other. By the time they got done, the stainless-steel fridge looked like it had got shot up with a shotgun.”  ED: She has a temper.

Palin’s most unconventional hire is  voice media consultant Rebecca Mansour, a fiercely pro-Palin blog.   At the exact time that Palin quietly hired Mansour, Palin’s Facebook page and Twitter feed until then written mostly in a stiff, third-person form — became increasingly provocative and irascible. 

While much of the persona Palin maintained before she achieved fame was semi accurate some elements were just pure fiction, says Gross. Like this hunter thing for Sarah.   A longtime family friend told us that woman has never hunted. The picture of her with the caribou she says she shot?  She got out of the RV to pose for a picture.  And when Palin made moose chili during an interview with Greta Van Susteren, the friend adds, Todd was calling everyone he knew the day before — Do you got any moose? He was desperate.



Gabby Giffords had made statements about Palin’s online map that put certain districts in crosshairs indicating that Republicans should target their representatives for defeat in the elections. Her sense of survival and fear brought this to the surface as shown in many interviews. 

Gabrielle Giffords was born in Tucson, Arizona, to Gloria Kay Fraser and Spencer J. Giffords. Her father is a first cousin of director Bruce Paltrow, whose daughter is actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Giffords was raised in a mixed religious environment by her Jewish father and Christian Science-practicing mother. 

She has identified herself solely with Judaism since 2001, belonging to Congregation Chaverim, a Reform synagogue, in Tucson. She is Arizona’s first Jewish Congresswoman.

THE SHOOTER - Someone has to be blamed “ since that’s the nature of the rhetoric today". The tragedy of this whole situation is that it could have been avoided.  The bizarre actions of the shooter went unheralded after both school officials and police met him on several occasions.   No Baker act, no mental health activity originated, simply no help. 

When stopped for a traffic infraction shortly before the shooting, he had the right paperwork, no warrants and was issued a warning. Nothing close to rational for what he did. Nothing makes sense. 

In the search of his motivation for shooting Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head and slaughtering random innocents, including a 9-year-old girl, the blame game is in full swing.  Ironically, the premier target is Sarah Palin for her stupid and irresponsible statements.

The gun and ammunition used offered no resistance to the purchase. They (GUN) came from Sportsman's Warehouse and (Ammo) Wal-Mart.  Again, clues, no follow up and a failed system. The most important part is the thirty round magazines?


This now deleted image from Sarah Palin website will be reason this terrible shooting has huge political ramifications, CNN’s Piers Morgan tweeted, linking to an image of the crosshairs map.  

When Palin put crosshairs on a map, pointing to Rep. Gifford and nineteen other Democratic targets, both men and women, she urged followers to “ load and aim for Democrats”. Michael Moore tweeted.

"Congresswoman Giffords in AZ, who is ON Sarah Palin's crosshairs map was shot in the head today.   Happy now Sarah?" tweeted actress, comedienne, commentator Kathy Griffin.  Keith Olbermann,  said Beck and O’Reilly should apologize on air for inspiring the killer and, if they don’t, their sponsors should repudiate them.

THE POPE OF POOP SPEAKS - Roger Ailes Fox News supreme womanizer and pervert  noted that maps with images of targets on them are often used in politics.  

(Roger was fired from FOX after news of his sexual abuse of female workers at FOX like half the staff was beyond sustainability)  he later died during a fall down a flight of steps in his home.

This is true, they used arrow targets and little mention of guns. The difference is that Palin is all gun. Her entire spiel to the masses is all about lock and load, then reload. 

After the shooting,  "I told all of our guys, shut up, tone it down, make your argument intellectually," he told Simmons. "You don't have to do it with bombast.  Remember Palin works for Fox news.

Up, up, and away and crash. As soon as the event hit the headlines and Sarah's map popped up they dropped it from her Facebook and the web.   Too late, one of her aids, Sarah Palin’s new media aide, Rebecca Mansour, sought to deflect attention from an electoral map Palin posted on her Facebook page last March in an appearance on Tammy Bruce's radio show.  

“The images long described as crosshairs or rifle sights were actually just surveyor’s symbols, so Mansour said”.   If you wish to put out smart things hire a smart person,  If you want to write stupid things hire someone like Rebecca.  If you try to spin your way out get your information correct.  

Is Sarah Palin to blame for this tragedy?  No, not directly. The deranged psychopath that went postal does take the blame,  but who set the stage or planted the seed.   When stirred by idiots like Palin the blame is shared.   Is Sarah Palin innocent and devoid of all responsibility. No, she was possibly the most vocal advocates in the political spectrum, she contribute­d to the aura of violent and intolerant rhetoric that continues to get worse each day and now the seeds of that rhetoric start to sprout.

Sarah Palin in an eight minute infomercial on Facebook gave her response to the shootings in Arizona, slamming those who blamed her gun tooting spiel and her "crosshairs" election map for the shooter's actions.  In the eight minutes of drivel in a picturesque setting looking to upstage the President, the wounded, the deceased, and anyone else that takes TV time away from her, she paid homage to the victims of the massacre. 

And immediately went into her self indulgent talking points which is expected because she has nothing noble to talk about. She goes on to say: "Journalists and pundits should not manufacture a  "blood libel”  that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn." 

Palin’s choice of words indicates she is blatantly an idiot and her press gal is a super frickin idiot, using the Blood Libel accusation.  Blood libel also "blood accusation" refers to a false accusation or claim that religious minorities, usually Jews, murder children to use their blood in certain aspects of their religious rituals and holidays.  Historically, these claims have–alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration–been a major theme in European persecution of Jews.  

The libels typically allege that Jews require human blood for the baking of matzos for Passover. Many popes have either directly or indirectly condemned the blood accusation, and no pope has ever sanctioned it.  Some fanatical Christian groups still are believers.  

But more problematic still is a scenario where Palin knows or doesn’t know what “ Blood libel” actually means, attaching herself as a victim on the same footing as those who suffered centuries of antisemitic persecution that culminated in the Holocaust. Is this what Palin is implying? Poor Sarah. That criticism of her crass political style is of the same order as the pogroms and expulsions perpetrated against the Jewish people?

Then, there is a final issue and the most serious one: Palin's political response to the Arizona massacre has been inept to the point of being risible. Confronted with serious questions about her style at a time of national shock, her first response was to explain herself in an email written to Glenn Beck.

This video statement was a second chance to show how she could act as a statesman and engage with the debate about America's overheated political language at a time when families are still mourning their dead. She had an opportunity to demonstrate that she was not simply a polarising and partisan figure and to dismiss the suspicions that she is self-serving, narcissistic and self-obsessed.

In that, Sarah Palin has manifestly failed. And she has failed not just as a politician, but as a human being, too.

You have to wonder — given the "terrible meaning and repercussions" of the phrase, not to mention the "terrible irony that Rep. Giffords is Jewish" — if Palin was "familiar with its actual definition."

Sarah Palin's eight minute, "I am Sarah Palin" was just like her TV reality series, all about Palin and less about ALASKA. This was about Palin and accusations. But this time she crossed the line.  At a time of mourning, pain and hurt she drew or tried to draw attention to herself.  She defended her infamous crosshairs visual.  She used words and phrases she probably did not know what she was talking about. 

It is obvious she didn't know what the phrase "Blood libel meant". It's also obvious she did not know that Gabby Gifford's was Jewish. Thats the problem, like the loaded gun she is, the mouth opens and stupid uninformed hatred of everything rhetoric come out.  It really stands out as the gaff of the century. This was not her day, this day belonged to the victims, their families, and the country.

Blood libel or ritual murder libel (also blood accusation) is an antisemitic canard accusing Jews of murdering Christian children in order to use their blood as part of religious rituals.  Historically, these claims—alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration—have been a major theme of the persecution of Jews in Europe.

Blood libels typically claim that Jews require human blood for the baking of matzos for Passover, although this element was allegedly absent in the earliest cases which claimed that then-contemporary Jews reenacted the crucifixion. The accusations often assert that the blood of the children of Christians is especially coveted, and, historically, blood libel claims have been made in order to account for the otherwise unexplained deaths of children. In some cases, the alleged victim of human sacrifice has become venerated as a martyr. Three of these –  William of Norwich, Little Saint Hugh of Lincoln, and Simon of Trent – became objects of local cults and veneration, and in some cases they were added to the General Roman Calendar. One, Gavriil Belostoksky, was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.

In Jewish lore, blood libels were the impetus for the creation of the Golem of Prague by Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel in the 16th century.  According to Walter Laqueur:

Altogether, there have been about 150 recorded cases of blood libel (not to mention thousands of rumors) that resulted in the arrest and killing of Jews throughout history, most of them in the Middle Ages. In almost every case, Jews were murdered, sometimes by a mob, sometimes following torture and a trial.

The term 'blood libel' has also been used to refer to any unpleasant or damaging false accusation, and it has taken on a broader metaphorical meaning. However, this usage remains controversial, and Jewish groups have objected to such usage.

The Tucson shooting is part of it. In a moment of time when the nation needed healing, her mouth was all Palin which in turn, out of ignorance or stupidity (the juries still out on this one) exasperated the Jewish Community.  
The “Blood Libel” Is an affront to Jews”.  This was a double whammy… I don’t dislike her anymore, I simply feel sorry for her as she is a total vindictive fraud and fits in well with the GOP policy toward people.  GOP,  Good Old Prejudice is alive and well.

ED NOTE:  As a member in good standing of the team of psychiatrists who specialize in political statements I can safely report, the consensus and accusations of her being a simple loudmouth talking idiot are totally true.


The latest Washington Post/ABC poll found that Sarah Palin had the highest negative numbers among voters who leaned toward Republicans.

Thirty-seven percent of those polled hold an unfavorable view of the former Alaska governor.  Fifty-eight percent are favorable.  The poll, and they are as common as breathing these days shows Sarah Palin falling from the likes of savvy Republicans.  Dumb Republicans fall for anyone whose name they can spell.

Lets put her on a chart... Could it be the media has fallen out of love with the “Witch of the North” when they realized she has nothing intelligent to say?  Today, as the chart shows in this poll she is admired by only fifty-eight percent of Republicans who see her in a favorable light.  I wonder if the 58% are defending their first impression or are totally incompetent to make reasonable decisions.  It’s a lot lower now.

She's too polarizing and that’s what is tearing the Republican Party apart.  She's the Tea Party, the Teat Party and the Tea POT party all rolled into one.  She'll tell you what’s wrong, she'll tell you when to breastfeed and that Michele Obama shouldn’t get involved in what you kids eat, and she'll tell you when to smoke a little weed. After all she is for the legalization of Marijuana as a solution.  I'm not implying that she smokes weed, her incoherency doesn't need it. 

She's Team Palin and little else. Sooner or later the love fest had to end. Many of the party, thought of her as a fresh approach to politics, based on what they were fed.  It turned out to be a lot of rhetoric. The truth slipped out about her real past, minuscule unfinished projects and false accolades, the crap written by the McCain team with help from the ghost writers who have all but vanished today. 

Welcomed by the Association of Primate Studies.

CNN - Following in the footsteps of several other Republicans considering a presidential bid, Sarah Palin was in Jerusalem Monday to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and take in some local sight-seeing.  This was a Photo-Op bullshit, classified a level 10.  

She was monitored by the Primate Association Of Israel who stated she won’t make a monkey out of us since we are the cradle of civilization where life started.  In her case we have to be careful, stupidity like hers could be catching. 

Netanyahu asked if SARAH wanted to go to the West Bank, she replied; No, I already have my MasterCard with Bank of America.  Stunned, he explained where the West Bank was.  She replied, “ Can see it from my bedroom window”.  

With the bombings and the grief the Israeli’s have sustained, did they really have to have Palin dumped on them too?   Politics, or was it a slam against our President Barack Obama who does not do the Hora (An Israeli Dance) when Netanyahu tells him to dance.

Sarah should stick to pole dancing... more on her level.


Alaska's most famous politician/ pageant queen/ hunter/ vice presidential candidate/ and mental buffoon will get her name trademarked after all.  Maybe burnt into her forehead, or crib-sheeted into the palm of her hand.  Old habits like cheating on tests never go away.    

Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol are expected to have trademarks on their names approved within three months after re-filing (maybe too many spelling mistakes) and resubmitting their paperwork.  Since nobody challenged it, the names “Sarah Palin and Bristol Palin” will be trademarked.    Frankly a waste of time and money because she is a has-been and totally irrelevant.

The announcement of the Bristol Palin Dance Studio’s, soon opening in a strip mall near you didn’t come as a shock to anyone. Soon there will be suits against those who use the “Palin Cha-Cha Step” which basically is two steps forward and three steps backward till she falls out the back door.

Featured at the studios will be a line of dresses Bristol wore on the show “Dancing With the Stars”, especially the bright Orange number she wore which was so, so ugly Vladmier Vanovitsky, a Russian dress designer commented, “ I could see it without TV from the porch of my Dacha in Minsk”.  “ Even a Russian peasant wouldn’t be seen in it and the state would confiscate it and make uniforms for prisoners in our gulags”.

Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin actually agrees with liberals on something.  “Finally, they have won me over. I actually agree with the liberals’ demanding that this issue of young illegal aliens flooding across our border into horrendous conditions be taken care of. Now!”  

Palin’s remarks come after a week of news and debate over the more than 47,000 unaccompanied minors who have been detained crossing the borders since October, a 92% uptick from the same period the year before. The surge in border crossings —which the president’s administration says is motivated by extreme poverty, crime and violence back home—is overwhelming the system and shocking, inhumane conditions have been reported.


Right-wing talk radio host Dan Caplis and graduate of Dr. Goebbels  journalism school introduced Palin as “one of the most influential political figures of the 21st century,” and as a heroine who has “stood up for you.”   (What does this frickin jerk off smoke)  Then she spoke....

•  “It is nice to be back in the Mile High City, I just think it’s absolutely beautiful.  Flying in, you know we’re over your snow-capped hills, I think you call them mountains? I flew in from Alaska”  …inferring the real mountains?

•  “Remember, we’re in Colorado. Don’t inhale. So the president was here last week, gotten’ his Rocky Mountain high on…” Yet, Palin failed to mention that her home state is also on track to legalize marijuana this November.

•  “Busy week for him [Barack Obama] speeding from one scandal to another scandal. It’s vertigo. The Middle East exploding in chaos, time in our open border crisis, Obama has no time to visit the border, but time to shoot some pool, wet his whistle, in real big for those icky photo ops that he really, really hates.”

•  “The president disparages these fat cats in public. But in private, “ there’s a whole lot of cuddling , purring  and tummy tickling with the ones who feeds him.”

•  “It’s the same old story today, as government gloats, crony capitalists just eat it up, they’re swallowing’ that largesse.”

•  “On both sides of the aisle, they feed off this supposed "big government" largesse.  Y’know, the rest of us. Today, we’re the ‘forgotten man.’ The ‘forgotten man’ is the hard working middle class who just can’t seem to get a break.” Hmmm, maybe her party’s refusing to raise the minimum wage has something to do with that.

•  On Benghazi. President got us into a war with Libya without congressional approval. Our ambassador there begged for security, was ignored then murdered when the consulate was attacked — as predicted by savage Muslim terrorists.  Who were angered by an inflammatory anti-Muslim film produced by right-wing Christians.“   NONE OF THIS IS TRUE

•  “Considering articles of impeachment is the check making the case for it is not difficult. Difficult is having the moral courage to do what’s right in Congress. It takes guts to hold him accountable. It takes political will. Obama is radically changing the balance of power, setting a wicked dangerous precedent.” 

The woman is mentally insufficient for any duties in the White House and her recent affiliation with Donald Trump proves something about the phrase “birds of a feather flock together”.  She is a joke and a jokester but never forget this woman is dangerous to anything normal people believe in. Far beyond being out in left or excuse me right field, she’s clearly two blocks from the stadium and two steps from a sanitarium.   

When I hear someone telling me how great she is, I step back, and ask or let them tell me about her accomplishments to good government, mankind, the environment, education, nature, and so forth.  There are none.  You can do the same with T-RUMP.

The silence was overpowering, I it was like being in an empty chamber because she is a minus symbol, a term we use to denote someone who complains but never offers solutions. She is the negative problem, not the positive answer.


Rember how former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was going to use her political celebrity to build an army of like-minded politicians via her political action committee?  Failed,  Palin has officially shut down Sarah PAC as of the end of 2016. 

In the 2016 election cycle, Palin’s Sarah PAC spent $830,000 on consultants and just $82,500 in donations to other candidates and $168,000 on travel and lodging expenses during the 2016 election   

In the 2010 election cycle the Sarah PAC  raised $5.6 million and spent $4.3 million. Just $509,000 of that total — less than 12 percent of total expenditures went to either candidates or political/party committees.

What the closure of Palin's PAC — makes clear is that  a) her time as a national leader for Republicans is over and  b) Palin's prime interest was never really anything other than promoting her own political brand.

While Palin was, at first, an absolute political phenomenon, it quickly became clear that she was primarily focused on what was good for her, not on what was good for McCain or for the Republican Party more generally.  In the aftermath of that 2008 campaign, the evidence began to pile up that Palin’s political ambitions were inextricably linked to her personal interests. 
Duh, you think?


Sarah Palin had already illustrated how perilous the transition from presidential politics to TV entertainment could be when she starred in TLC’s Sarah Palin’s Alaska. What a frickin disaster about a disaster!

It was a hugely hyped step in Palin’s road to building her own media empire that died after a single season. It did nothing to help her political or entertainment career. Sarah Palin’s Alaska was even executive-produced by Mark Burnett, who will have to answer to God for making Donald Trump a television star by creating The Apprentice.

Sarah Palin’s Alaska was a very expensive infomercial for Palin as a politician and for Alaska tourism. Like Trump, Palin is a raging narcissist. By making Alaska the focus of the show, she can pretend that she’s doing it for a home state she identifies with so strongly that she clearly believes she is Alaska, just as Trump labors under the delusion that he is America.

Palin’s ascendancy from obscure, first-term governor to national figure felt less like a conventional political coronation than a product launch. Palin was no mere politician. She was a brand whose elements were clear from the beginning. She was introduced as a cheerful, gun-toting, flag-waving, slang-speaking, establishment-ruffling, lefty-baiting hellcat. 

Alaska has always been a key component of Palin’s brand. She sold her home state as a place where Americans had big, healthy broods who build cabins with their bare hands for fun. 

Sarah Palin’s Alaska depicts its titular state as a wild realm where anyone who cannot produce photographic evidence that they have killed at least 14 previously living things (but only for food or trophies, because Alaskans are noble) is run out of the state for being too much of a hippie. 

Palin’s father, Chuck had a number of skulls in his home not generally seen outside the domiciles of prolific serial killers: animal skulls, but they’re still really creepy.

Chuck a former teacher who’d take his class on field trips to explore the wonder of Alaskan nature, and young Sarah would tag along. Sarah Palin’s Alaska one-ups her dad by taking her children (and him) on epic field trips all over the state with TLC footing the bill and a vast army of adoring fans gushing over the plucky resilience of the Palins. Best of all, she was paid millions to present herself as the ultimate Alaskan.

The problems began with the Palin family; the best thing that can be said about them is that they are not Sarah Palin. Though Palin describes her husband Todd more than once as her “helpmate” and daughter Piper as her “sidekick,” they’re also people who really, really don’t seem to want to be on television. 

That doesn’t keep Palin from dragging her monosyllabic, slouchy family from one wildly photogenic yet boring wilderness adventure to another, always stressing her core values of self-reliance, hard work, patriotism, and having guns on hand for the many instances when you need to kill large animals. 

In Sarah Palin’s Alaska, life is a brutal struggle for survival against a beautiful but fierce natural world, delivered with a wink and a smile.  By the time Sarah Palin’s Alaska debuted, Palin had already cycled through a few personas. She was the feisty rising star of the Republican party, then an enduring embarrassment of John McCain, a complicated sex symbol, a Tea Party loose cannon, and frothing-at-the-mouth gun nut. 

Sarah Palin’s Alaska introduces a side of Palin we hadn’t seen before: She’s less a controversial politician than just someone’s dorky mom. What’s worse, Palin seems interested in her children only to the extent that they reflect her painfully romanticized self-image and embody the values she spends Sarah Palin’s Alaska preaching.

There was, most prominently, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” — a reality TV series following the machinations of the Palin clan.  We saw the herded animal setup shot... disgusting and other things that go against my grain.

The second amendment doesn’t afford citizens the right to shoot wolves and bears out of airplanes.  I know. Why the founding fathers didn’t think of that is puzzling…oh, wait, the Wright Brothers weren’t born yet.   I don’t remember Palin mentioning that the only president to suspend the right to bear arms was George W. Bush during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Sarah brought up a fight she lost.  Ashley Judd’s ads fighting Palin’s policy on aerial hunting and the gassing of wolf pups still in their den, were effective.  While governor, Palin dedicated $400,000 to fight against the citizen initiative to ban the practice.  Her faith based science included bear in the aerial program.  As incendiary as the topic is, bringing it up in her final speech was more telling.  Mean-girl, high school, vindictive Palin had to get another shot across the bow of the SS Ashley Judd.

The late Charlton Heston, president of the NRA, was from Hollywood.  I love his acting, I despised his convoluted self adoration politics involving the NRA.  The lionized President Reagan was from Hollywood, the great orator and a true American hero but an absolutely lousy economist.  His programs in economics were losers but he cared about the environment.

Bottom Line:  Sarah Palin shares one thing with President T-RUMP both were frauds and liars....
