Now, I heard the little mom was boozin' while with child and the dad is a real redneck, but I'm off that story because of the mother's love for the kid. Anybody who has even glanced at the pictures knows that.
So, on to other matters, and there are a lot of them:
"Palin reports throw curve to campaign; Questions are raised over reformer image" by Michael Kranish, Globe Staff | September 3, 2008
ST. PAUL - McCain's campaign is aggressively hitting back at what it calls "smears" against Palin "being circulated by left-wing bloggers" and being amplified unfairly by the media. Yesterday, it sent out Palin's voter registration records, showing she signed up as a Republican in 1982, to counter reports that she was a member of the Alaska Independence Party, many of whose members advocate seceding from the United States. The Associated Press reported that her husband, Todd, has been a member of the party.
How about a PAUL-PALIN ticket instead, Repugs? I'll VOTE for THAT!!!!
And hey, the AP reported it , so it must be true!
After all, they are never wrong!!!!!
Taxpayers for Common Sense, a nonpartisan group that publicizes pork barrel projects, said in a report issued this week that Palin's record against federal "earmarks" - which McCain opposes - has evolved over time. She was a city councilor and mayor of Wasilla at a time when the town of about 9,000 people received $27 million worth of earmarks after hiring a Washington lobbying firm. The projects included $15 million for a rail commuter line to Anchorage, which benefited Wasilla and other communities on the route, as well as $800,000 for an airport, $1 million for a transit center, and $2.4 million for water and sewer projects.
Palin was supportive of the $233 million bridge, a span from the city of Ketchikan to Gravina Island, when she ran for governor in 2006. She opposed it after being elected governor, at a time when the attacks by McCain and others had made the project unpopular, according to Alaskan media reports.
As governor, Palin asked this year for 31 federal earmarks totaling $198 million, down from $550 million in her first year in office. But that's still about $295 per Alaska resident, compared with the national average of $34 per person, according to Citizens Against Government Waste.Palin has asked the state personnel board to review allegations that she abused her position in firing Alaska's public safety commissioner, the AP reported last night. The case is already the subject of an investigation authorized by the Alaska Legislature examining whether Palin pushed the firing because the commissioner declined to fire a trooper who was going through a contentious divorce with Palin's sister. The campaign yesterday said it investigated the matter and is convinced Palin did nothing wrong.
And oh, I'm sorry, I'm breaking a pledge to you, readers, by posting this (then again, how can I avoid it?):
