Greenbaum's right about Sarah Palin

  • Follow Letters

Lowell Greenbaum's Sept. 6 letter to the editor says, "Gov. Palin, you are no Hillary Clinton."

I say, thank God for that.

Sarah Palin is the biggest

Sarah Palin is the biggest insult to women possible. This is an unqualified hack of a woman who believes she can balance raising five children with making false associations to terrorists of Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton is a woman who has poured her heart and soul into this country, whether you like her or not. Sarah Palin is just one big sad joke. She is unqualified, uneducated, unrealistic, and downright classless. If you think calling your challenger a terrorist and allowing crowds of people to do the same isn't disgusting, then you really do have no concept of the world around you.

Sarah Palin is a political hack who no one will remember five years from now because she exists singularly as a mass delusion. A woman whose beauty distracts people from the fact that she puts on campaign rallies that are filled with fascist bigotry and vile insinuations about good people.

Sarah Palin is no Hillary Clinton because, regardless of what blind Republicans like to think, the latter has spent decades fighting for her country while the former spends more money on shoes than she does her children's education.

Sarah's success as a mother,

Sarah's success as a mother, business owner and politician sure seems to rub some people the wrong way. I, for one, admire a person able to do so many things so well. No envy, just admiration. I find Mrs. Palin represents the American woman just fine. Could this ever be said about Hill? (I suspect Emory is an ugly Democrat - pardon the redundancy)

The irony is that the majority of woman who diss Palin are themselves ignorant unsuccessful sad jokes. Displacing themselves into Palin and then mocking her. Weird. Take Tina Fey, for instance, a B.A. in drama from Univ. of Virginia-Palin a B.S. in communications-journalism from Univ. of Idaho. Hmmm. Drama???? We can all agree Tina Fey is a joke for sure. An ignorant female comedian makes fun of Palin for purely political reasons and people buy it. What a bunch of Rubes.

She left Wasilla in debt. She

She left Wasilla in debt. She supported the "bridge to nowhere" then lied and said she didn't, she sat through a sermon when the preacher said "terrorism is the Jews punishment for not accepting Christ" she didn't get up and walk out,she also has had witches cast out of her by her pastor, then criticized Obama's pastor, she and her husband are associated with the Alaska Independence Party whose founder Joe Vogler stated"I'm an Alaskan,not an American",and "Ive got no use for America or her damned institutions" and "The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American government. And I won't be buried under their damn flag. I'll be buried in Dawson. And when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home." She passed a windfall profit tax on oil companies in Alaska so everyone got an EXTRA check in the mail this year yet blasts Obama for wanting to "share the wealth". She just shared your money with Alaskans every time you put gas in your tank. Ya'll on the right can think she's the "messiah"(as you say Obama is), but she doesn't seem so great to me.

Patricia I didn't know you

Patricia I didn't know you admired women who take the baby to work and stuff him under a desk. But the real question is, you claim she is a business "owner". I hope you aren't refering to first dudes snowmobiling hobby as a business. If so I am proud to declare my wife is a business woman, because she is married to a poker player!! And we all know poker is a sport because it is televised on ESPN! Get a life, You would put someone in office as the Vice President based on the credentials little Sarah has, no wonder Johnny Mac lost the election!!!

TechLover.....if you dislike Palin because of her supposed association with a pastor who spoke of judgement toward the Jews....then I suppose to be fair you express the same dislike for Obama for his association with Jeremiah Wright. Right??????

shamrock, I think you

shamrock, I think you misunderstood what Mr. Hagler meant. He was not cheerleading for Greenbaum. Quite the opposite. Gould is GLAD that Sarah Palin is no Hillary Clinton. So am I. As far as Emory's 5:05am comment, just insert the opposite of everything he said about Palin and that will be much more accurate.

Saying that Sarah Palin is no

Saying that Sarah Palin is no Hillary Clinton is about the only thing that idiot Lowell Greenbaum has ever gotten right! I thank God for that fact also. One Hillary is too much! Greenbaum is the epitome of the Democratic Party, raise taxes then blame somebody else,

No LynxRHot, Techlover couldn't dislike Obama for that reason. You see, when Democrats speak hate, it's always justified. When Republicans speak hate, it's always discrimination. Get with the program.

Anchorage, AK AP "This time,

Anchorage, AK AP "This time, Gov. Sarah Palin can claim vindication against allegations that she abused her power in office by firing her public safety commissioner.
Palin - running mate of Republican presidential candidate John McCain - violated no ethics laws, according to a report released by the state personnel board on the eve of Election Day. An earlier, separate investigation by the Legislature found that Palin had abused her office.
"There is no probable cause to believe that the governor, or any other state official, violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with these matters," the personnel board's report said.
"The Governor is grateful that this investigation has provided a fair and impartial review of this matter and upholds the Governor's ability to take measures when necessary to ensure that Alaskans have the best possible team working to serve them," her attorney, Thomas Van Flein, said in a statement after the report was released Monday." by Rachel D'Oro Nov. 4.

The choice of Vice President

The choice of Vice President is the first important appointment a presidential candidate makes. In this case, the choice of Palin reveals many flaws. 1. The choice was hasty, impulsive, and based on nothing more than passing a litmus test. 2. The choice was only made to satisfy the far right base, showing that McCain is willing to throw his publicly stated principles in the ditch. 3. The choice shows that McCain is weak within his party, and will continue to be influenced by the dark forces that have darn near train wrecked this county these last eight years. 4. Palin herself has proved dangerous, by 'going rogue' and publicly opposing McCain's policies. In her small mind nothing matters more that getting her naive and one sided views rammed down our throats.

The blind and gullible dims

The blind and gullible dims weren't going to vote for Sarah anyway. Why does the republican VP candidate seem to bother them so much? The mother's of the dim posters must be very proud of their comments about an accomplished woman that is running for VP of this great country. farrakhan is the one that started calling NObama the messiah so please dims, give credit where credit is due. The blind and gullible dims continue to vote for their inexperienced, unqualified, do-nothing, socialist, marxist (with crooks, felons, terrorists, racists, murderers for "friends") senator from corrupt dim iL political machine. It's so funny to watch them try to tear down Sarah and they have NObama/NObiden.

Jack, it's so funny you say

Jack, it's so funny you say that. But I swer it's true. I've been thinking the same thing for so many years,... Why is it that Dim females are so damn unattractive. Besides Hillary will always be known as Bill's wife who let him slide on the adultery. Palin can stand on her own two feet, I think that scares the hell out off some people. I don't know about you but I'd much rather be dominated by a strong attractive female. Than another unattractive Dim, who just wants to spread my wealth around.

JesusIsComingOnTue, your

JesusIsComingOnTue, your concise comment is the most suitable response to Mr. Hagler's concise letter. However, I'm sure he anticipated the firestorm of comments he would set off, so herewith my two fistfuls of gunpowder. First, I'd love to see a race between Palin and Clinton, preferably in 2016, for a Democrat's obvious reasons. Second, and I say this as a long happily married old man, one of the most attractive parts of a woman is her brain, which, as it develops, causes the woman to remain attractive in other areas, as well. I happen to find Hillary Clinton quite attractive. Sarah Palin, too, in a beauty-contestant way, but unlike some Republicans, I don't see Sarah as the babe I never had.

Lowellbrown, I too am

Lowellbrown, I too am attracted to women with brains but it MUST be housed in a rather attractive container - no matter the size of Hillary's brain it cannot possibly be what fills her hips and cankles! Sarah Palin's attractiveness is brains but also wholesomeness. She is beautiful, smart, and loves her husband and children more than herself. The fact that she loves life and refused an abortion for her child with Down Syndrome puts her up on my top ten list.

well we can see why aftbrn

well we can see why aftbrn and jack are voting for compASSiontae CONservative, they are looking for a date. I suppose that is why the men spending months on the ice in Ak also voted for her. Me, I could care less what she looks like, I am more interested in giving the troops someone they can follow as a commander in chief. By the way, I wonder what little Cindy would look like without the face lifts? If these two honest patriotic americans were to see her with the wrinkles she has had removed would they still like Johnny Mac? Kinda makes you wonder why we don't have a test to see who should vote and who not!!!
