Palling Around & Wasilla Hillbillies

Sarah Palin is on a media blitz allowing exclusive interviews and press conference visible as ever as if 2012 is just around the corner. Although recent polls suggest that there are more who prefers not to see her in the national politics she probably will be but with a little glitch. That small opening that she will plow through is closing in right before she even gets there as Stevens the convicted felon appears to be losing at the latest count.

Forget about the polls where a majority does not want to see her in the national limelight as long as she inspires the “base.” The “base” probably includes 40% of mental colonist errr FilAms with colonial mentality whose choice of a president is racial as shown in the survey conducted by Balitang America. That number was validated with a pre-election survey of community leaders (conducted by the National Federation of Filipino-American Associations and the Federation of Philippine-American Chambers of Commerce) showed Obama trumping McCain 58 to 42.

Oh well, maybe she should just deal with that McCain aide reportedly talking behind her back with harsh derogatory statements such as "diva," "whacked job" and worst of all as reported by Newsweek, to quote:

Wasilla Hillbillies Looting Neiman Marcus from Coast to Coast!
Not exactly nice to say to a defeated candidate and to think that it is coming from within the Republican camp says more about the people in the campaign. The effects of divisive politics and sleazy polarizing level brought about by Pit Bull with lipstick combative nastiness always on the offensive seems to linger on even from within their circle. It is ironic that Sarah Palin’s polarizing effect on the campaign trail rubs off within the campaign that feeds on adversarial targets sticks like a sticky gum under one’s sole that is difficult to get rid. Then there is that notion that Sarah Palin is not aware that Africa is a continent that she responded forcefully by saying those behind the rumors are JERKs.

Negativity galore characterized the way they run the campaign and Michelle Malkin is a perfect fit for this kind of political hullabaloo and the inquisition like campaign begins code named Operation Leper. What is odd is seeing of all people those on the right in a “commie” like purge dubbed Operation Leper launched by Red State to ferret out the “traitors.” A campaign that will treat those campaign operatives who they suspect are responsible for bad mouthing Sarah Palin behind her back to see to it that they never work in any campaigns forevermore. It all boils down to flushing out the “rats,” awww shucks then that will take out the fun with the comedians very disappointed if they are booted out forever. Does that mean they will run a decent campaign next time around? How about the comedians, where will they get their materials if they do that?

Nasty really nasty if it was false but if it was verified then it says more about the person who blames the blamer without looking at the veracity of the accusation. Then to make matter worse it appears that there is communication problem within their camp as shown below:

McCain himself rarely spoke to Palin during the campaign, and aides kept him in the dark about the details of her spending on clothes because they were sure he would be offended. Palin asked to speak along with McCain at his Arizona concession speech Tuesday night, but campaign strategist Steve Schmidt vetoed the request.
Then the report further stated the obvious lack of communication or which probably explain why the “maverick” in Sarah Palin went rouge with the Wrong errr Wright attack:
Palin launched her attack on Obama's association with William Ayers, the former Weather Underground bomber, before the campaign had finalized a plan to raise the issue. McCain's advisers were working on a strategy that they hoped to unveil the following week, but McCain had not signed off on it, and top adviser Mark Salter was resisting.
That was during the election and post election she just could not get over the palling around in an interview with Wolf Blitzer at CNN posted at Huffington Post:
BLITZER: Because, you know, during a campaign, every presidential campaign, things are said, it's tough, as you well know, it gets sometimes pretty fierce out there. And during the campaign, you said this, you said: "This is not a man who sees America as you see it and how I see America." And then you went on to say: "Someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he is palling around with terrorists who would target their own country."

PALIN: Well, I still am concerned about that association with Bill Ayers. And if anybody still wants to talk about it, I will, because this is an unrepentant domestic terrorist who had campaigned to blow up, to destroy our Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol. That's an association that still bothers me.

And I think it's still fair to talk about it. However the campaign is over. That chapter is closed. Now is the time to move on and to, again, make sure that all of us are doing all that we can to progress this nation.

Keep us secure, get the economy back on the right track, and many of us do have some ideas on how to do that and hopefully we'll be able to put all of that wisdom and experience to good use together.

BLITZER: So looking back, you don't regret that tough language during the campaign?

PALIN: No, and I do not think that it is off-base nor mean-spirited, nor negative campaigning to call someone out on their associations and on their record. And that's why I did it.

BLITZER: I just want to sort of footnote, was that your idea or did somebody write those lines for you?

PALIN: It was a collaborative effort there in deciding how do we start bringing up some of the associations that perhaps would be impacting on an administration, on the future of America. But again, though, Wolf, knowing that it really -- at this point, I don't want to point fingers backwards and play the blame game, certainly, on anything that took place in terms of strategy or messaging in the campaign.

Now is the time to move forward together, start progressing America.
I wonder how attacking a person based on guilt by association is not negative and mean spirited, while those suspected of talking behind her back she calls jerks? So what's the difference between those "jerks" and her guilt by association that still persist to this day when the campaign season is done and over with? Sure, if moving forward is about "guilt by association" then it is actually a misstep........ it is too early to tell who are moving forward or blocking the path of the nation's destiny but one can sense this early who are destined to the dustbin of history.
