View Full Version : McCain adviser: Palin’s book is fiction



Roger Perry

Depictions ‘took place entirely in her imagination,’ says Wallace


Working mom’ interview?
Palin described thinking the Couric interview would be lighthearted and fun. "It was supposed to be ... a working mom speaking with [another] working mom and the challenges that we have with teenage daughters," she told "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in an interview broadcast Monday.
Wallace told msnbc that this is "rationalization or justification or fiction." "We set up this interview on the day of the U.N. General Assemblyhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/2_bing.gif (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/34002562/ns/politics-more_politics/#), with a walk-and-talk in front of the U.N. It was never made as two working gals ... that was supposed to be to highlight her foreign policy savvy."


Well, so much for Palin's foreign policy savvy.:lol:

Americans had barely finished voting a year ago when anonymous sources in the campaign (who were widely assumed to be Schmidt and fellow adviser Nicolle Wallace) were calling the Palin family “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus.” (Now that's funny no matter who you are)
[Since the publication of this story, Schmidt called to refute that either he or Wallace were the source of anti-Palin leaks.]
In any event, there were leaks about Palin’s lavish spending on clothes, unwillingness to stay on message and demand that she deliver her own concession speech on election night.

Sarah's pissed over Newsweek cover? You betcha!

Newsweek magazine dug up an old Runner's World photo of Sarah Palin in running shorts and used it on the cover for a story entitled How Do You Solve a Problem Like Sarah? (http://www.newsweek.com/id/222786)
So Sarah's pissed. She called the cover "sexist" and conservative pundits are weighing in with bombastic self-righteous indignation.
Odd. These same pundits gleefully promoted Palin as the new sex symbol for the GOP when the John McCain campaign plucked her from obscurity in a desperation effort to salvage the 2008 Presidential election.
But Sarah, wearing a bright-red, form-fitting top in the photo, is seeing red over the cover photo.

Palin photographer breached contract with sale to Newsweek
Jeff Bercovici
Nov 18th 2009 at 2:

What on earth was Sarah Palin thinking when she posed in a pair of teeny-tiny gym shorts for a photograph that ended up on the cover of Newsweek -- a cover she has called "sexist"? Perhaps she was thinking that her image would only appear in the magazine she was posing for, Runner's World, and nowhere else, at least not for months and months. If so, she had good reason -- since, as DailyFinance has learned, the photographer who shot the picture violated his contract by reselling them to Newsweek.

That photographer, Brian Adams, could not immediately be reached, and his agent, Kelly Price, declined to comment, saying, "I keep all of my clients' business private." But a spokeswoman for Runner's World confirms that Adams's contract contained a clause stipulating that his photos of Palin would be under embargo for a period of one year following publication -- meaning until August 2010. "Runner's World did not provide Newsweek with its cover image," the spokeswoman said. "It was provided to Newsweek by the photographer's stock agency, without Runner's World's knowledge or permission." The spokeswoman declined to say whether Runner's World intends to respond to Adams's breach of contract with legal action.

But while Newsweek's use of the photo violated the embargo, it's not clear to what extent Adams is at fault. A source with knowledge of the situation says multiple outlets, including Time, approached Runner's World after the photos first appeared on its website in July to inquire about obtaining the reuse rights. Those who inquired were forwarded to Adams. Editors at the magazine were aware of negotiations to resell the pictures, and were primarily concerned to see that Runner's World received prominent credit, says the source. In the event, Newsweek credited Runner's World right on its cover. Another source says there is some disagreement over whether the exclusivity clause in Adams's contract is meant to cover all magazines or only titles that compete with Runner's World. Meanwhile, a post on Adams's blog seems to suggest he didn't know about the resale to Newsweek until after Price concluded it. "

CNN Poll: Most Americans say Palin not qualified to serve as president (http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/11/16/cnn-poll-most-americans-say-palin-not-qualified-to-serve-as-president/)

http://i.l.cnn.net/cnn/.element/img/2.0/mosaic/base_skins/baseplate/corner_wire_BL.gif

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Fewer than three in 10 Americans think Sarah Palin's qualified to be president, according to a new national poll - the least of any of the five potential candidates included in the survey.
But another woman tops that list in the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday: two-thirds of the public thinks that Secretary of State HIllary Clinton's qualified for the Oval Office. That's more than Vice President Joe Biden, who's currently next in line for the presidency.

Sorry, I do not consider Rush Limpbaugh, Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck any kind of reliable news source either.

Ive watched her on a couple of interviews.
I think she is starting to unravel . I think its weird when bigs crowds come out to cheer for someone for doing nothing. If she was a 3 hundred pound gray haired lady no one would give a hoot.
her following reminds me of Obama's. he travels around trying to get in front of a camera so his droolers can make goo goo eyes at him.

She is probably a nice lady caught up in the moment.
I know for sure now that she is not presidential material but neither is Obama,, so whats your point.
Sara'a not a narcisist,, Obama without a doubt is. Other than that they both look good in front of a camera.

HMMMMMM..........:cool:
As a photographer, I pay some attention to laws governing use of photographs as well as contract limitations. Any commitment made by the photographer to embargo a photograph would only be relevant to the photographer and the magazine. Palin has no control over the use unless the release she signed initially restricted the use explicitly. A release is actually only needed because the photo appears on the cover or if it is specifically used to promote sales. Otherwise, no release is needed unless the photograph is obtained illegally or its publication involves an inherent invasion of privacy (e.g. photographing a nekkid RTF'er rolling in the snow or taking a shower....). As a public figure, Palin is deemed to have fewer rights to restrict use than a private citizen, raising the question of whether or not a release would be required even for use on the cover. Personally, she looks good enough that I suspect that photo gained more votes than it lost.;-) I'm home again and won't head back to the National until Friday.

The throwing a book at wolves started as a joke but as usual you did not take it that way so here is a piece of information that is not a joke.

Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska and John McCain's vice presidential pick, is an enthusiastic hunter who has proposed legislation (http://www.adfg.state.ak.us/news/2007/5-11-07_nr.php) and cash incentives (http://dwb.adn.com/news/alaska/wildlife/story/8726730p-8628810c.html) to encourage aerial wolf gunning, the controversial practice of shooting wolves from an aircraft. Do people in Alaska really shoot wolves from planes?

Wolves in alaska protected? I think not.

RP, in case you don't know any 4th graders that could help you get the rest of the joke;

400 pages are to a wolf as 2,000 pages are to an elephant.

Both publications are about of the same value except one wastes more paper.

This statement shows how vile those on the left are.

She's a loser? She lost one election and I would put the blame squarely on McCain. How many in politics have not lost an election.

She's a quitter? She resigned due to the left attacking every little thing she did as governer and costing the State huge sums of money to defend against it.

It's attitudes like yours that keeps this country is so deeply divided.

Well, you reiterated the facts that 1) she did lose, and 2) she did quit. Thank you for collaborating my assertions. Then you attack me for telling the truth!

Lots of good people have lost elections, and not quite as many good people have quit mid-term, but nonetheless, they're usually not rewarded for such behavior. That was my point. Again, thankyou for backing up the facts.

Wolves in Alaska are much more protected than the thousands of moose & caribou they kill every year. Many Native villages that used to rely on the moose and caribou to survive the winter, are now forced to spend what little money they have to ship meat from the city. There are huge areas of interior Alaska that are traditional moose hunting areas that you would be hard pressed to even find a moose in. Shooting wolves from the air is the only effective way to control the population. The wolf population is at an all time high thanks to the the bleeding heart nuts that want to tell everyone else how to live. Go spend a winter in Alaska in a native village, then talk about the poor wolves... Give me a break.

The state of alaska is doing a very good job of managing it's wildlife, and I, for one, am glad for the aerial wolf hunting program (which is also not nearly like what you 'think' it is)....The predator management program is showing that it is working....cutting the number of wolves to a level which allows ungulates a little more chance at survival..THere are currently also very liberal black bear regulations in effect in a majority of the state...black bears are the most devastating to spring moose calf populations.....

outsiders have absolutely NO CLUE as to the immensity of this state...nor the importance of moose and caribou to the people who live in rural areas....

oh, and BTW, while elephants may indeed be protected, they can also, legally, be hunted in several places in Africa....they are in no way shape or form in danger of becoming extinct.

"In a national poll conducted by Rasmussen on November 13 and 14, 2009 among 1000 likely voters, Sarah Palin is now polling higher in approval than Barack Obama.

In their latest poll, Rasmussen finds that 51 percent have a favorable view of Sarah Palin while 43 percent have an unfavorable view. Obviously, this is a very strong rating considering the constant bombardment the American public is subjected to by the corrupt media, telling them how “bad for America” Sarah Palin is.

If anything, this may be more of a statement on the shrinking influence the old, corrupt media has on the American public, than on Sarah Palin herself. It may also show that Americans are moving past the misinformation that is out there, and actually looking into Sarah’s record."

Here is a source for poll numbers and recent articles googled on her. Interesting but I still don't think she's POTUS material.

http://thespeechatimeforchoosing.wordpress.com/2009/11/17/rasmussen-sarah-palin%e2%80%99s-approval-rating-higher-than-barack-obama%e2%80%99s/

"In a national poll conducted by Rasmussen on November 13 and 14, 2009 among 1000 likely voters, Sarah Palin is now polling higher in approval than Barack Obama.

In their latest poll, Rasmussen finds that 51 percent have a favorable view of Sarah Palin while 43 percent have an unfavorable view. Obviously, this is a very strong rating considering the constant bombardment the American public is subjected to by the corrupt media, telling them how “bad for America” Sarah Palin is.

If anything, this may be more of a statement on the shrinking influence the old, corrupt media has on the American public, than on Sarah Palin herself. It may also show that Americans are moving past the misinformation that is out there, and actually looking into Sarah’s record."

Nope,,, not that simple....

McCain was no joke!! He just was old as dirt... That was the problem.... No one would have been better at the job,,,

Palin was the republican joke,,, she hurt him and the republican party bad...

She was the trump card that didn't work.

Extreme's never work well... The republican party banked on a bad extreme... Sarah Palin...

She was sooo bad and such a lame duck that we now have obama...

As much as I hate to say it, Roger is right on this one. I would never vote for her for POTUS unless it was against obongo and really that is only because I can't think of two worse people to run.
I would have to probably vote independent if she ran. For Chrits sake we (the GOP) have to have something better than her. I like her, but not enough to put my country in her hands

Angie, tell us what you really think :razz: I think you need to visit here more often ;-).

Now that said, even you would have to admit Palin was treated unfairly, in fact vilified, by the mainstream media. I'm no fan of hers and cringed when the GOP picked her as McCain's running mate. I wasn't as bothered about her lack of experience since IMO she had more and better experience than Obongo and she wasn't, after all, running for President. If she'd gotten the nose-up-the-butt free passes from the press that Obongo received, she probably wouldn't have written a book; she wouldn't have needed to.

Palin's extensive media coverage was almost exclusively about every little mistake she and her family made and a steady stream of salacious tidbits more suitable to National Inquirer rather than any discussion of her politics. She was (and remains) headline news for things like her wardrobe and quotes from Tina Fey said that were attributed to her. Hell look at all the airtime that little punk posing for the No. 1 gay men's magazine in the U.S., Playgirl, is getting. Palin probably felt the only way she could set the record straight was to publish a book. I say good for her, I hope she makes a gajillion dollars off it. But I don't want her as Pres. or probably even as VP of this country.

I remember being horrified at the Katie Couric interview where she skewered Palin. But then I have a hard time understanding Couric anyway. I was a college roommate of hers briefly at UVa, and often wonder how she turned into such a limousine liberal when the rest of us are pretty hard-core right wingers. What I found out about that interview was that Couric spent hours interviewing Palin and chopped/edited it down to the most embarrassing, unflattering vignettes, presumably to please her bosses at the Commie Broadcast Service.

Frankly I think Palin should stick to books and maybe even start a talk show now that Queen Oprah is retiring; she'd be perfect.

You're letting it get to you Ducknwork.

Which part of RP's sig line do you object to? The fallaciousness of his quote, or the inclusion of a presumed profanity, namely 'goddamned'. If RP were to use the term 'GD', would it then be acceptable?

When we use stars and asterisks to replace letters...does that 'clean it up'? Don't we all still know what is being said?

Is the quote accurate? As much as, "We live in Cuba now". I don't agree with Goose's sig line, but I pay it little heed.

Have you complained to a forum moderator? If not, do so.

When forum boards are set up, there is a glossary of words that may be chosen by admin to be excluded from posting. When these glossaries are not edited, you find yourself unable to post words like 'bitch' or someones name like 'Dick'. Kind of inconvenient on a dog forum.

You have a couple of choices;

a. Get over it.

b. Utilize your ignore list function. You may still have to see RP's posts when someome quotes him, but the sig lines are not quoted unless someone copies and pastes them.

By DOUG THOMPSON


Dec 9, 2005, 06:39
Last month, Republican Congressional leaders filed into the Oval Office to meet with President George W. Bush and talk about renewing the controversial USA Patriot Act.
Several provisions of the act, passed in the shell shocked period immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, caused enough anger that liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union had joined forces with prominent conservatives like Phyllis Schlafly and Bob Barr to oppose renewal.
GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.
“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”
“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case
that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a god-damned piece of paper!”
I’ve talked to three people present for the meeting that day and they
all confirm that the President of the United States called the Constitution “a god-damned piece of paper.”
And, to the Bush Administration, the Constitution of the United States is little more than toilet paper stained from all the s**t that this group of power-mad despots have dumped on the freedoms that “god-damned piece of paper” used to guarantee.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, while still White House counsel, wrote that the “Constitution is an outdated document.”
Put aside your political affiliation for a moment. It doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent. Whether you support iraq or not should also not matter. Despite political differences the Constitution has stood strong for over two centuries. It is the last line of defense in a war against American democracy.


Thompson told us he once removed the story from his Web site when others raised doubts and no other news organization came up with a similar story. But he said he later reinstated it and currently believes it to be true. "I wrote the story and I stand by it," Thompson said in a telephone interview.


Thompson told us he based the story on e-mail messages from three persons he knows, all of whom claim to have been present at a White House meeting and to have heard Bush make the statement. He said he finds their account credible: "Sometimes I just have to go with my gut, and my gut tells me he did say this."


I remember the Nixon years when a reporter had an unnamed source (Deep Throat) who the reporter did not give up the informants name, same could hold true for Doug Thompson with 3 "deep throat" informants.

Palin leaves fans hanging in Indiana


November 22, 2009 - 3:39am


Sarah Palin left fans hanging in Noblesville, Indiana, when she aborted her book signing appearance there and bolted back to her bus.
Disgruntled fans who had stood in line chanted "sign our book" and yelled "Sarah quits again" as the diva of failed politics retreated to her bus and ignored her fans.

Which part of RP's sig line do you object to? The fallaciousness of his quote, or the inclusion of a presumed profanity, namely 'goddamned'. If RP were to use the term 'GD', would it then be acceptable?

It would be better at least if he changed it do GD. Although it is still disrepectful, it at least 'seems' a little better. I wouldn't walk around saying Buddha dammit, or Allah dammit, or Muhammad dammit, or Roger Perry dammit, etc etc as it is disprecpectful to those who hold them in high regard. Just because I don't agree with their beliefs does not give me the right to do things that are directly offensive and desrespectful to them.
If I type F * C K is that better than ****? (I edited that myself as I don't think it is appropriate to type on a public forum.) I don't particularly care for the quote, as it seems to be untruthful (from what many have pointed out), but that doesn't really bother me. If lies bothered me I would spend my days curled in the fetal position in my bedroom afraid to go to work or turn on the tv. And I SURE wouldn't get on here...

When we use stars and asterisks to replace letters...does that 'clean it up'? Don't we all still know what is being said?

As I said above, at least it 'seems' a little better. It's not quite as blatant. And like I said yesterday, I don't believe that's the image the site owners want to portray.

Is the quote accurate? As much as, "We live in Cuba now". I don't agree with Goose's sig line, but I pay it little heed.

I don't take offense to the fallacy of the quote, although I do think that it speaks volumes about the poster.

Have you complained to a forum moderator? If not, do so.

I'm not the type that has to have everything changed to suit me. I believe that grown men and women should be capable of policing themselves and be reasonably sensitive to things that are obviously offensive to others. I guess some people are too immature and didn't have the filter installed between their brain and mouth/fingers.

When forum boards are set up, there is a glossary of words that may be chosen by admin to be excluded from posting. When these glossaries are not edited, you find yourself unable to post words like 'bitch' or someones name like 'Dick'. Kind of inconvenient on a dog forum.

I have been and still am currently doing so.

b. Utilize your ignore list function. You may still have to see RP's posts when someome quotes him, but the sig lines are not quoted unless someone copies and pastes them.

That's not necessary. Where would I get my entertainment from if I couldn't see his posts?

Hope you and your family have a Happy Holiday. :)

I hope you do as well.

That is probably accurate. After all, Bush was photographed kissing a Prince and Joe Lieberman.

Lets go with your assumption that everything Doug Thompson says on his Capital Hill Blue blog is a lie. Therefore, when Bush told the world that Saddam Hussain had stockpiled weapons of mass destruction which turned out to be a lie, ergo everything that came out of Bush's mouth was a lie. Does that work for you?

Is there anywhere else that reports the constitution quote by Bush? I would be skeptical of the WMDs you ask about if CHB was the ONLY place it was reported. We all know that it wasn't though. As far as believing it was a lie, as I have said before, we are not privy to the information and knowledge that our presidents are. I cannot make a judgment on that without the knowledge they have. It may have been a lie, or it may not have been a lie. Either way, this many years into the war, what difference would it make? We are there and we can't change that fact, so we must concentrate on getting out of there the right way.

As far as the book, I haven't read it, nor will I. I don't have time to read right now and I would rather spend my money on shotgun shells anyway.:D

Again, Doug Thompson said he had 3 conversations with 3 different people that were at the meeting that said Bush called the constitution just a gd piece of paper. Knowing Bush's temper I have no doubt that Bush made that statement.

Again, this thread is about Palin's book, not what Bush said or may have said.

How many years was it that it took to learn the identiy of the Nixon "Deep Throat?" Wasn't it just a few years ago his identiy was known? Besides more likely than not the informers are still in Congress or working for the government. Remember these were Republicans that were in a meeting, not mixed with Democrats or the quote WOULD have gotten to the main media.

What the heck is it you fear? Free speech, freedom to pursue your own destiny, or what?

The system she believes in allowed you the good fortune to be able to sit on your feeble ass, while volunteers set up tests, and you watch a pro run your dogs.

What the heck is it you fear? Free speech, freedom to pursue your own destiny, or what?

The system she believes in allowed you the good fortune to be able to sit on your feeble ass, while volunteers set up tests, and you watch a pro run your dogs.

I don't begrudge you that luxury, more power to you. I just wonder why the folks that believe in the principals that got you to that place in your life are viewed as being inept or stupid by you now.

States Rights, and Free Market regards,



Mike

I put in my dues as far as working at trials and hunt tests. I was the president of the Jacksonville Retriever Club for 2 years. I was Chairman of the field trial, Bird Stuart, Gun Captain, Judged, Marshalled and set up tests, shot flyers, thrown birds, planted blinds and hung birds well past dark by myself.

I am the only one who takes care of the 360 acres that the Treasure Coast Retriever Club uses for their Hunt tests and training grounds, in fact I was instrumental in getting them allowed use of the grounds. I am the only one that mows and shapes the grounds there. One year it took me months to clean out the ponds that were filled with dollar weed so the ponds could be used so the dogs would not get tangled up in the roots and drown. I took out tons of dollar weed that had 3 foot roots with just a garden rake and NO ONE offered to help pull out one weed.

Having had qudrupal by-pass surgery, 3 minor strokes, emphysema, diabetes and various other illness I think I deserve the right to as you put it "sit on my feeble ass while volunteers set up tests.

Some people chant about it, others go about making it happen.
Right. Some people love their country and others resent it and would like to see it torn down and remade into something that was never intended by either the founders or the majority.

I apologize for my words Roger. I knew you had been involved for many years.

I just can't figure out what it is that makes someone who has obviously been succesful, fear and loathe a person who agrees with the principals that made sucess possible.

The looney left has nothing in common with patriotism.
