Sarah Palin on SNL

Sarah Palin on SNL

Sarah Palin can give as good as she gets. The Republican vice presidential nominee appeared on NBC-TV’s “Saturday Night Live” and played along as Tina Fey reprised her impersonation of the Alaska governor.

Sarah Palin stood with Executive Producer Lorne Michaels late Saturday as the two watched Sarah Palin stage a mock news conference. Sarah Palin lamented Michaels wouldn’t let her impersonate Fey on her show, “30 Rock,” but Michaels said no one watched the program anyway.

Sarah Palin Autism


Sarah Palin Autism

I just finished watching the presidential debates, and heard the word “autism” brought up not once, not twice, but at least three or four times.

Mr. McCain referred to “precious children” with autism, and suggested that Sarah Palin would be a strong supporter of parents of autistic children (presumably because she has a child with Down syndrome). Mr. Obama described plans to increase funding for autism research and implied support for increased funding for special education (though he made no particular mention of how or whether special education might be reformed or improved).

Sarah Palin says Obama running against Bush, not McCain

Sarah Palin says Obama running against Bush, not McCain

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Tuesday said Barack Obama is running as though his opponent is President Bush instead of John McCain. She called it a strategy that’s “wearing pretty thin.”

Addressing several hundred supporters at a fundraiser, the Alaska governor said voters know McCain as a political maverick and war hero and that Obama is trying too hard to link the Arizona senator to the unpopular GOP president.

“Our opponents spend so much time pretending they are running against the current president. I think it’s wearing pretty thin,” Palin said, without mentioning Bush’s name. “The American people are really waking up and saying no, the status quo is not one of the boxes to check.”

Palin Abuse of Power

Sarah Palin Abuse of Power

An Alaska ethics inquiry found on Friday that U.S. Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin Abused her Power as the state’s governor, casting a cloud over John McCain’s controversial choice of running mate for the November 4 election.

At the same time, McCain shifted his strategy. After a week in which his campaign tried in vain to seize the momentum from Democrat Barack Obama with fierce personal attacks, he adopted a conciliatory tone, calling on supporters to respect the Illinois senator.

The Alaska inquiry centered on whether Palin’s dismissal of the state’s public safety commissioner, Walt Monegan, was linked to her personal feud with a state trooper who was involved in a contentious divorce with the governor’s sister.

A report prepared for the state Legislative Council said Monegan’s refusal to fire the trooper was not the sole reason he was dismissed but was likely a contributing factor. The McCain-Palin campaign had said the commissioner was fired because of poor performance.

Sarah Palin Defends Terrorist Comment

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin defended her claim that Barack Obama “pals around with terrorists,” saying the Democratic presidential nominee’s association with a 1960s radical is an issue that is “fair to talk about.”

Obama has denounced the radical views and actions of Bill Ayers, a founder of the violent Weather Underground group during the Vietnam era. On Sunday, Obama dismissed the criticism from the McCain campaign, leveled by Palin, as “smears” meant to distract voters from real problems such as the troubled economy.

Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, launched the attack Saturday and repeated it twice Sunday, signaling a new strategy by John McCain’s presidential campaign to go after Obama‘s character.

“The comments are about an association that has been known but hasn’t been talked about,” Palin said as she boarded her plane in Long Beach, Calif. “I think it’s fair to talk about where Barack Obama kicked off his political career, in the guy’s living room.”

Later, at an Omaha rally, Palin elaborated on her attack, claiming one of Obama‘s advisers had described Obama and Ayers as “friendly.”

“In fact, Obama held one of his first meetings hoping to kick off his political career in Bill Ayers’ living room,” she told the crowd, which had just raised $2.5 million for the Republican party’s McCain-Palin Victory 2008 fund.

At issue is Obama‘s association with Ayers. Both have served on the same Chicago charity and live near each other in Chicago. Ayers also held a meet-the-candidate event at his home for Obama when Obama first ran for office in the mid-1990s, the event cited by Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin tours stage at Republican National Convention


Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin touted her small-town roots and swiped at Democrat Barack Obama during a highly anticipated speech to the Republican convention on Wednesday, ridiculing her critics as “the Washington elite” who did not understand everyday life in America.

In her public debut in the spotlight, John McCain’s choice for vice president portrayed herself as a Washington outsider and came out swinging against Obama and members of the news media who have raised questions about her qualifications.

“I’ve learned quickly these past few days that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone,” the Alaska governor said in remarks prepared for delivery at the convention.

“But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion — I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.”

Since McCain made the virtually unknown Palin his choice for running mate, she has been the center of a media storm fueled by disclosures about her unmarried teenage daughter’s pregnancy, a probe into her role in an Alaskan official’s firing and questions about her political record.
