Sarah Palin Tell-All Book Out. Truth or Sour Grapes???

    So a former Palin follower has penned an expose.

    The gist is damaging emails that were supposed to be confidential (hey, if Wikileaks can do it, why not an Alaska gubernatorial staffer?).
    Upshot. She said some pretty nasty (and damaging) stuff.

    I hope this will be a minor attention blip on her descent into oblivion.

    Thoughts?

      Sarah P. missed her calling when she didn't become a daycare director or a P&C insurance agent.... then again, I have great respect for these two occupations - is it too late to recant?

          Isn't Face Book worth more than the Bank of England.  Perhaps Mark Zuckerburg should be Chancellor of the Exchequer - good bye Gordy.

    I find it kind of strange...she used to be a media darling and now she's going down!

    I watched this guy on something, and he seemed phony to me!
    Not that this didn't happen, and not that Palin isn't a straight up b**ch--all us women knew that!!
    But--they all knew it too. So why come out with it now?
    Someone BIG is doing her in, IMO. Her time is UP.
    Hopefully she won't end up in indictiment, like Jonh (omg--brain freeze on his name! Elizabeth's husband..had an affair, has a baby--now a sex-tape)

    They use peope, and throw them away. Fame and Fortune?.......You can have it!

      John EDWARDS.
      Funny, I was just thinking tonight of the Kerry Edwards campaign.
      I never liked him. Even before the $400 haircuts and then the shameful way he treated Elizabeth and having that baby with his ho.
      Tsk tsk.

      I, too, wonder why now?
      SP would be crazy to declare for president now. She may still have an audience on Fox, but that's a far cry from having the gravitas to run for POTUS. Cheerleader for the Tea Party, yes. Politician, never should have made it to the national stage.

        I never liked Edwards, either. He always had that nasty unctuousness I could never get past, and it looks like my guts (and yours!) were right.

        As for Palin - can you imagine if she got the nomination? The whole deer-in-headlights look she'd get every time she got an impromptu question from a reporter. Obama would have the biggest upset in US history. Palin would only get far-right bastions like Utah and Alabama...she'd even lose her home state.

          Unctiousness. Exactly right.
          Nothing genuine in that man whatsoever.

          A year ago I could definitely picture SP getting the GOP nomination. Maybe even up till the Gabby Giffords fiasco.
          Since then she is not getting the media play (thank God).
          And the mood of the country is leaning leftward (away from the TP). And SP has completely outed herself as any number of unpleasant adjectives/nouns.
          Gotta give her this, tho. She managed to cash out rather nicely.
          I think it would be hard for her to give that up!
          Natural Alaska living the way the Palins do takes some dough.

            That's true. Everyone's for cutting spending when it's theoretical. When the Republicans started enumerating exactly what they'd cut, they got in trouble with their own natural constituents.

            And you're right that Palin should cash out handsomely. Fortunately, that's probably all she really cares about.

              Sad thing is cutting is essential to economic survival.  Perhaps that is why I have the sinking feeling that we are finished and that all too soon Robert Mugabe will be floating the US a loan.

                Some cutting (like maybe trillion dollar wars) would be nice. But taxes will have to return to the levels they were in the Reagan or Clinton era, too. The equation doesn't balance otherwise.

                  It cannot balance regardless.  We are finished as a free people.  We have embraced a philosophy that inexorably leads to lines of hungry people waiting for potatoes.

                  Raising taxes will not make a difference.  It is not a taxing problem it is, indeed, a spending problem.  There is a fixed relationship between GDP and revenue.  No matter what the tax rate tgeh Federal gov't can only collect between 16 and 20% of GDP.  That doesn't help much when the Federal gov't is deficit spending every year.

                  I find it curious that people object to trillion dollar wars but find $1.6 trillion deficits not only excusable but desirable.

                    Desirable? If you mean that during a recession it's not wise to drastically reduce spending, then yes. It's better to reduce spending and cut during an economic boom, since the business sector is providing growth and employment. But the GOP believed in increasing spending during a boom; remember that? Not a peep from your average conservative.

                    Letting the Bush tax cuts expire and returning taxes to Reagan era levels will bring down the deficit. But to do so will get cries of socialism nowadays from the GOP, which has been taken over by the Club for Growth mentality.

    Facepalm Quote of the Day:
    "Frank Bailey was the only member of the Palin administration to be found to have acted unethically - twice. He is currently under investigation again by the state attorney general."
    - SarahPAC adviser Tim Crawford

    Fact check: Frank Bailey is under investigation for pressuring the Alaska State Troopers to fire Mike Wooten, Sarah Palin's ex-brother-in-law. He was pressured to do so by Todd Palin. Basically, Frank Bailey was Sarah Palin's scapegoat when she was caught unethically trying to get someone fired after that person fell out-of-favor with the Palin family. Now Palin's people are trying to say Frank Bailey isn't credible because he's currently under investigation for acting unethically. HE WAS ACTING ON HER BEHALF!

      Guess he didn't appreciate being thrown under the bus.
      Can't say I blame him.
