Top McCain Advisor Blasts Palin:
"Of Course She's Not Ready !"

A former Republican Secretary of State and one of John McCain's most prominent supporters offered a stunningly frank and remarkably bleak assessment of Sarah Palin's capacity to handle the presidency should such a scenario arise.
Lawrence Eagleburger, who served as Secretary of State under George H.W. Bush and whose endorsement is often trumpeted by McCain, said on Thursday that the Alaska governor is not only unprepared to take over the job on a moment's notice but, even after some time in office, would only amount to an "adequate" commander in chief.
"And I devoutly hope that [she] would never be tested," he added for good measure -- referring both to Palin's policy dexterity and the idea of McCain not making it through his time in office. (Listen to audio below.)
The remarks took place during an interview on National Public Radio that was, ironically, billed as "making the case" for a McCain presidency. Asked by the host whether Palin could step in during a time of crisis, Eagleburger reverted to sarcasm before leveling the harsh blow.
"It is a very good question," he said, pausing a few seconds, then adding with a chuckle: "I'm being facetious here. Look, of course not."
Eagleburger explained: "I don't think at the moment she is prepared to take over the reigns of the presidency. I can name for you any number of other vice presidents who were not particularly up to it either. So the question, I think, is can she learn and would she be tough enough under the circumstances if she were asked to become president, heaven forbid that that ever takes place?

Founder Of Group Palin Courted Professed "Hatred For The American Government"; Cursed "Damn Flag"

By Greg Sargent - September 2, 2008
The founder of the Alaska Independence Party -- a group that has been courted over the years by Sarah Palin, and one her husband was a member of for roughly seven years -- once professed his "hatred for the American government" and cursed the American flag as a "damn flag."
The AIP founder, Joe Vogler, made the comments in 1991, in an interview that's now housed at the Oral History Program in the Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
"The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government," Vogler said in the interview, in which he talked extensively about his desire for Alaskan secession, the key goal of the AIP.
"And I won't be buried under their damn flag," Vogler continued in the interview, which also touched on his disappointment with the American judicial system. "I'll be buried in Dawson. And when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home."
At another point, Volger advocated renouncing allegiance to the United States. In the course of denouncing Federal regulation over land, he said:
"And then you get mad. And you say, the hell with them. And you renounce allegiance, and you pledge your efforts, your effects, your honor, your life to Alaska."
You can listen to audio of the relevant section of the Volger interview
here. Bill Schneider, curator of oral history at the library, verified the authenticity of the interview and the quote to me a few moments ago.
Palin has courted the group over the years.
Three years after the controversial interview, in 1994, Palin attended the group's annual convention, according to
witnesses who spoke to ABC News' Jake Tapper. The McCain campaign is disputing her presence there, but Tapper found two people to attest to it.
The McCain campaign today
produced Palin's voting registration records, and said they proved she was never a member of the party.
But she has repeatedly reached out to the group. The McCain campaign has confirmed she visited the group's 2000 convention, and she
addressed its convention this year, as an incumbent governor whose oath of office includes upholding the Constitution of the United States.
Palin's husband, Todd Palin,
was a member of the party from 1995-2002 with a brief exception in 2000.
It's worth noting that Vogler isn't just some figure from ancient history. He is
still being hailed on AIP's site this year, the same year Palin addressed the group's convention.
It's worth pondering how big a deal it would be if Obama had ever courted the support of a group whose head had said this kind of thing about America and her flag. Oh, wait...

B4B Prediction


Greg Jones

On Sunday, following the McCain Camps announcement that Sarah Palin's teenage unmarried daughter was pregnant, I immediately questioned the reason for this revelation. Then it hit me. McCain/Palin will use this as a reason to give her the boot. It is absolutely amazing that McCain did such a weak job of vetting his V.P. choice which proves his incompetance and lack of judgement. On Sunday, immediately following the pregnancy declaration, McCain sent over 2 dozen staffers and lawyers to Alaska to finally initiate the vetting process. What a loser McCain is ! He vets his choice AFTER selecting her ! PATHETIC !

Now that all kind of Palin news is being revealed, combined with the vetting that will occur this week; our prediction is simply SARAH PALIN WILL GET THE BOOT !

Then this morning I saw this article which reflects my prediction. Guess I'm not the only one thinking this way. Here's a portion of the article:

By Andy Ostroy

And the Palin mess is getting uglier by the minute. The NY Times Tuesday reports that, in addition to Palin's daughter being five months pregnant, she's hired a private lawyer to defend her in her abuse-of-power investigation; was a member of a political party seeking Alaska's secession from the Union; and that her husband Todd was arrested 22 years ago for drunken driving. Jeez, the Republicans sure have a distorted view of "family values," huh? With McCain's temper, we can only imagine how much yelling and screaming must be going on behind the scenes right now.
But McCain likely has only himself to blame. Word on the street is that no one in his vice presidential selection committee but him wanted Palin. He wanted his pal Sen. Joe Lieberman, but hastily switched plans last-minute in a likely act of desperation following Obama and the Dems Denver blowout. His move, purely political to seduce Sen. Hillary Clinton's disaffected women supporters, hardly is a "country first" strategy. If McCain was/is so concerned about country, he wouldn't be pushing to put it in the hands of the very inexperienced Palin in the event something were to happen to him. He'd give us someone like Sen. Joe Biden, the Dems' VP nominee.

So what is McCain and the party to do? Don't be shocked if there's a surprise announcement early this week from Palin, something to the tune of:
It is with deep regret that I am withdrawing my name from consideration as the party's nominee for vice president of the United States of America. Given my daughter's pregnancy, the difficulty in raising a Down syndrome child, and the ongoing personal investigation in Alaska, I feel there are too many distractions right now that would not allow me to effectively fill my role as vice president, both over the next 2 months as Sen. John McCain's running mate, and after he is elected president. It is my duty therefore to step aside so that Sen. McCain and the party can replace me with someone who can and will be able to devote 100% of his or her time to this extremely important position. Americans deserve that. Thank you.

Deja vu all over again. Sarah Palin/Harriet Miers. The names are interchangeable. And just like Bush did in replacing Miers with Samuel Alito Jr., Grandpa John will quickly replace her with someone who'll really get conservatives excited. Someone like Gen. David Petraeus, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee or, yes, even Lieberman. All in time for the RNC convention to remain a right-winger's dream event. But, while he'll be getting rid of one problem, he'll be creating another: the judgement issue.

Either way, he' a loser.
Have I mentioned how much fun I'm having? (end of article)

The Search For Truth Is Not A Smear !
We Must Find Out The Truth About
Sarah Palin

By Greg Jones

Stories related to Sarah Palin and the pregancy of her 5th child have swarmed the internet at incredible pace. Many are concerned in agreement that the facts just don't add up. It looks to many as if Sarah's daughter Bralin actually gave birth to the child whom Sarah claimed to have given birth too. (see posts below)

Now, the breaking news is the fact that the same daughter, Bralin IS currently pregnant in her 5th month and plans to marry the baby's daddy, Luke. It is commendable that the young couple plans to 'do the right thing'. The case of 'Who's really The Baby's Mama' Drama is not a question regarding Bralin, who has to be going through mental he** right now. It's a question of who is Sarah Palin and what kind of person is she.

The McCain camp today released a statement labeling any mention of the Baby MamaGate or the current teenage pregnancy as 'smears'. THAT'S REDICULOUS ! We, as Americans have the right, and in fact the duty to find out the truth about anyone who could possibly wind up Commander and Chief of OUR Country.
Are we wrong for wondering why EVERYTHING related to Sarah's pregancy just doesn't add up ? Not at all ! Are we wrong for wanting to know the facts ? Not at all ! Should we stop seeking for truth ? NOT AT ALL !

If, and I repeat, IF it is true that Sarah Palin put together a master-minded scheme to cover-up the fact that her daughter had been pregnant, the exposing of the cover-up would not only be BIG news, but an incredible display of an extremely coniving character, a trait that we are currently doing all we can to get out of the White House right now ! If, and I repeat, IF the BabyGate rumors are not true....then simply show some proof.

( Although I would be leary of any birth records from the hospital. Seems that after the 12 hour flight from Dallas to Anchorage, instead of rushing to the closest hospital in Anchorage, where she would have gotten top-notch medical care as Gov. of Alaska, Sarah and hubby drove an additional 30-40 minutes to her home city of Wassila to have the baby there ! HUH ? Could it have been because in order to act like it was her baby....she had to be at the hospital where the baby was born ? )

But now, the breaking story is the CURRENT teenage pregnancy and the GOP, media and McCain camp are spinning this as a 'private family matter' labeling all discussion of the subjects (plural) off limits. But I ask you one question: can you imagine the coverage and tone this would get had this been Michelle Obama ? I shutter to think of how the media and the GOP/McCain would foam at the mouth for the opportunity to destroy.

But not Barack Obama. He has issued the statement, "I think people's families are off limits, and people's children are especially off limits.""Our people were not involved in any way in this, and they will not be," he said. "And if I ever thought that there was somebody in my campaign that was involved in something like that, they'd be fired."

This statement further displays Senator Obama's character and commitment to running a clean, smear free campaign and we commend him for this. But that, in no way, deminishes the absolute right and duty for all Americans to seek for truth regarding any person who can become the President of OUR Country.

To label the search for truth as 'smearing' is absolutely wrong, manipulative and actually Un-American. We, as Americans, who are strong supporters of Barack Obama have chosen him due to our love for our country first, feeling that he is the right person to get our country back on track. And it is that same love for our country that gives every American the right to question the people who may end up in the position that will totally set the agenda for us all to live (or die in the case of war) under.

Finally, some are raising the question is this new revelation from the McCain Camp of the teenage pregancy pre-setting the avenue to let Palin ease out of the race under the disguise of 'Now I need to spend time with my family', which would really be a joke, but I wouldn't be surprised. If McCain had done just a wee bit of vetting....just 1 phone call to the Alaska Daily News to ask if there are any rumors they should be aware of....then he could have simply chosen someone else. Talk about bad judgement....PATHETIC !

There are too many serious questions surrounding Sarah Palin that have to be answered. It is our duty to find out ALL we can about her, good or bad. And NO ! We will not stop in our search for truth. It's that very attitude that has gotten our country in the position we are currently in. And no, we do not work for the Obama Campaign....we work for America !

Photos: Both show Palin when pregnant. Top photo verrrrry obvious...taken during pregnancy of one of the older children. Bottom photo taken after declaration of 7 month secret pregnancy. Huh ?

Alaskans Speak Out re: Their Governor

Sarah Palin

As an Alaskan, I am writing to give all of you some information on
Sarah Palin, Senator McCain's choice for VP. As an Alaska voter, I
know more than most of you about her and, frankly, I am horrified that
he picked her.

The most accurate description of her is red neck. Her husband works in
the oil fields of Prudhoe Bay and races snow mobiles. She is a life
time member of the NRA and has worked tirelessly to allow
indiscriminate hunting of wildlife in Alaska, particularly wolves and
bears. She has spent millions of Alaska state dollars on aerial
hunting of these predators from helicopters and airplanes, dollars
that should have been spent, for example, on Alaska's failing school
system.We have the lowest rate of high school graduation in the
country. Not all of you may think aerial predator hunting is so bad,
but how anyone (other than Alaska wolf-haters, of which there are
many, most without teeth), could think this use of funds is
appropriate is beyond me. If you want to know more about the aerial
hunting travesty, let me=2 0know and I will send some links to
informative web sites.

She has been a strong supporter of increased use of fossil fuels, yet
the McCain campaign has the nerve to say she has 'green' policies. The
only thing green about Sarah Palin is her lack of experience. She has
consistently supported drilling in ANWR, use of coal-burning power
plants (as I write this, a new coal plant is being built in her home
town of Wasilla), strip mining, and almost anything else that will
unnecessarily exploit the diminishing resources of Alaska and destroy
its environment.
Prior to her one year as governor of Alaska, she was mayor of Wasilla,a small red neck town outside Anchorage.The average maximum education level of parents of junior high school kids in Wasilla is 10th grade.

Unfortunately, I have to go to Wasilla every week to get groceries and other supplies, so I have continual contact with the people who put Palin in office in the first place. I know what I'm talking about. These people don't have a concept of the world around them or of the serious issues facing the US. Furthermore, they don't care. So long as they can go out and hunt their moose every fall, kill wolves and bears and drive their snow mobiles and ATVs through every corner of the wilderness, they're happy. I wish I were exaggerating.

Sarah Palin is currently involved in a political corruption scandal.She fired an individual in law enforcement here because she didn't like how he treated one of her relatives during a divorce. The man's performance and ability weren't considered; it was a totally personal firing and s currently under investigation. While the issue isn't close to the scandal of Ted Steven's corruption, it shows that Palin isn't 'squeaky clean' and causes me to think there may be more issues that could come to light. Clearly McCain doesn't care.

When you line Palin up with Biden, the comparison would be laughable if it weren't so serious. Sarah Palin knows nothing of economics (admittedly a weak area for McCain), or of international affairs, knows nothing of national government, Social Security, unemployment, health care systems - you name it. The idea of her meeting with heads of foreign governments around the world truly frightens me.

In an increasingly dangerous world, with the economy in shambles inthe US, Sarah Palin is uniquely UNqualified to be vice president. John McCain is not a young man. Should something happen to him such that the vice president had to step in, it would destroy our country and possibly the world to have someone as inexperienced and inappropriate as Sarah Palin. The choice of Palin is a cheap shot by McCain to try to get Hillary supporters to vote for him. when McCain i ntroduced her today, Palin had the nerve to compare herself with Hillary and Geraldine Ferraro. Sarah Palin, you are no Hillary Clinton.

To those of you who, like me, supported Hillary and were upset that shedid not get the nomination, please don't think that Sarah Palin is a worthy substitute. If you supported Hillary, regardless of what you think the media and the democratic party may have done to undermine her campaign, the person to support now is Obama, not Sarah Palin.

To those of you who are independent or undecided, don't let the choice of Palin sway you in favor of McCain. Choosing her shows how unqualified McCain is to be president.

To those of you who are conservative, I guess you have no choice for president. But please try to see how the poor choice of Palin tells us a great deal about McCain's judgment.While the political posturing inherent in the choice of Palin is obvious, the more serious issue is the fact that the VP is, literally, a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Sarah Palin is totally and unequivocally unqualified to be vice president, let alone president. I know this is a lengthy and emotional email, but the stakes are high.I thought it might help for all of you, regardless of political affiliation, to know something about Palin from someone who has to live with her administration in Alaska on a daily basis.

Here's some basic background from
She was elected Alaska's governor a little over a year and a half ago. Her previous office was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside Anchorage.1
Palin is strongly anti-choice, opposing abortion even in the case of rape or incest.2

She supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in 2000. 3
Palin thinks creationism should be taught in public schools.4
She's doesn't think humans are the cause of climate change.5
She's solidly in line with John McCain's 'Big Oil first' energy policy. She's pushed hard for more oil drilling and says ren ewables won't be ready for years. She also sued the Bush administration for listing polar bears as an endangered species�€"she was worried it would interfere with more oil drilling in Alaska.6

Here's a sample of Alaskan's responses:

She is really just a mayor from a small town outside Anchorage who has been a governor for only 1.5 years, and has ZERO national and international experience. I shudder to think that she could be the person taking that 3AM call on the White House hotline, and the one who could potentially be charged with leading the US in the volatile international scene that exists today. �€"Rose M., Fairbanks, AK

She is VERY, VERY conservative, and far from perfect. She's a hunter and fisherwoman, but votes against the environment again and again. She ran on ethics reform, but is currently under investigation for several charges involving hiring and firing of state officials. She has NO experience beyond Alaska. �€"Christine B., Denali Park, AK

As an Alaskan and a feminist, I am beyond words at this announcement. Palin is not a feminist, and she is not the reformer she claims to be.
�€"Karen L., Anchorage, AK

Alaskans, collectively, are just as stunned as the rest of the nation. She is doing well running our State, but is totally inexperienced on the national level, and very much unequipped=2 0to run the nation, if it came to that. She is as far right as one can get, which has already been communicated on the news. In our office of thirty employees (dems, republicans, and nonpartisans), not one person feels she is ready for the V.P. position.
�€"Sherry C., Anchorage, AK

She's vehemently anti-choice and doesn't care about protecting our natural resources, even though she has worked as a fisherman. McCain chose her to pick up the Hillary voters, but Palin is no Hillary.
�€"Marina L., Juneau, AK

I think she's far too inexperienced to be in this position. I'm all for a woman in the White House, but not one who hasn't done anything to deserve it. There are far many other women who have worked their way up and have much more experience that would have been better choices. This is a patronizing decision on John McCain's part- and insulting to females everywhere that he would assume he'll get our vote by putting 'A Woman' in that position.
Jennifer M., Anchorage, AK
