Palin Stalker Crying Foul

Boo-freaking-hoo was the initial reaction I had when I read this story.

In case you don't remember, Joe McGinnis is the author who decided the best way to do research for his new Sarah Palin biography would be to move in fifteen feet from the Palin household this past May.  The Palin's responded by building a rather large fence to keep him from peering into their house from his perch, and wouldn't you know it? Mr. McGinnis is whining rather loudly (via his attorney, of course) after he was filmed by the producers of Sarah's new TLC show Sarah Palin's Alaska (set to air November 14th at 9 PM EST)  It seems this stalker doesn't much like being watched or talked about without his permission. 

This law firm represents Joe McGinniss.  It has come to our attention that the first episode (titled “Mamma Grizzly”) of the above referenced television show, scheduled to air on Sunday, November 14, 2010 at 9:00 PM on TLC, contains unauthorized videotaped images of Mr. McGinniss which were obtained without his knowledge or consent.  In addition, you have already placed a video clip containing this image of Mr. McGinniss on your website and it has been picked up and reproduced by the Huffington Post and many other online sites...Read the rest of the letter here

I guess when you've previously written hit pieces on a subject, and then moved in a few feet from their home in the vast wilderness of Alaska to observe and write another hit piece, you have every right to cry foul when you happen to be close enough to be filmed in a special being filmed on their property, right?

A New Day In America

November 2, 2010 was a great day for all conservatives, but especially for conservative women. I am humbled that God gave me the gift of allowing me to be born in the greatest country in the world. I've always felt this way, no matter who's the president or what direction the political winds happen to be blowing, but there are some days that make me prouder than others, and yesterday was just that kind of day.

We're hearing all sorts of commentary today. Interestingly, many on the left have toned it down a notch and are now doing the "bi-partisan" speech--you know, the thing they've absolutely refused to discuss these last two years because they won the '08 election. They've had two years at the wheel, and to borrow from President Obama's often repeated example, they've driven that car right into the ditch, whining all the way when they couldn't drag a Republican or two with them. I've been very pleased that they didn't want bi-partisanship. When it comes to the liberal agenda, there's no middle ground. There's right and there's wrong, and socialism is dead wrong. It's never worked in the history of the world, and just because we're the greatest country in the world doesn't mean it's going to magically start working now.

There's another group that proved something pretty sad yesterday. Feminism benefited, I suppose--every race where the opponent called his female competitor a bitch or a whore won. I guess Democrats like the abuse their party has dished out these past two election cycles, so the next two years may get even more interesting than the last two have been. I have to admit I shed a few tears yesterday as I watched great conservative women like Michelle Bachmann's numbers come in, and listened to her hand Chris Matthews his tail as he couldn't hold back his disdain for her: 

That, my friends, is a great conservative woman. Had Christine O'Donnell had the full support of the GOP, I have no doubt she would have carried Delaware. She ran an incredible race. But don't be discouraged by the losses we sustained yesterday. At this moment, we've gained 63 seats. That hasn't been done since the days of Hoover, and the success cannot be overstated. Conservatism won yesterday, and this is just the beginning. Today begins the push for 2012. I know, I know! We're sick to death of elections...but never before in the history of our nation has freedom been threatened like it has been with Barack Hussein Obama at the wheel. We must begin NOW to educate those voters who didn't think it necessary to show up at the polls yesterday. Those moms who don't pay enough attention to care about their children's future. Ignorance is no longer an excuse, and if you're reading this blog, you're probably already well enough informed to be able to educate those in your circle of friends and family about the principles our founding fathers fought and died for. If you aren't, stay tuned. We're going to do that here. 

Meanwhile, give yourselves a big pat on the back. Conservative women won big yesterday, and our own Sarah Palin was a vital part of that victory. It's going to be exciting to be a part of this movement in the coming weeks, months, and years. We cannot tire, we cannot give up...the fight for our future must continue, and it continues today. 

God bless each and every one of you who exercised your right to vote yesterday, and may God continue to richly bless this precious country we're fortunate enough to live in.

A Word From Sarah

Sarah took some time today to rally the troops via Facebook:
Tomorrow is Election Day. Before you head to the polling place, take a moment to remember March 21st, when the Pelosi Congress cast its vote for Obamacare. The enduring image of that day is one of Congressional Democrats arrogantly dismissing the pleas of thousands of Americans gathered outside the Capitol Building begging them not to inflict this disastrous bill on us.
In the end this bill wasn’t about health care reform; it was about control and government mandates and fines for not purchasing a government-approved insurance plan. The bill jeopardizes the very thing it was supposed to reform. Every day we hear about doctors leaving the Medicare system; increased premiums with talk of price controls; rationing becoming standard practice; and panels of faceless bureaucrats deciding which categories of treatment are worthy of funding based on efficiency calculations (which I called a “death panel”).
The morning after this terrible bill was passed by the House, I wrote that “we will remember the corrupt deals, the corrupt process, the lack of transparency, the deceptive gimmicks to game the CBO score, and the utter disregard for the will of the American people.”
They voted against our will that day. Tomorrow it’s our turn to vote against them and put our government back on the side of the people. This is our chance to rebuke their big government power grab, reject their unwanted “fundamental transformation” of America, and start the process of repealing this bill before it buries us under a mountain of debt.
So let’s fire Pelosi, retire Reid, and send all those who were responsible for that disgraceful bill a message that America is still about “We the People.” 
Tomorrow is our Freedom Day.
Enshrined in our Constitution is the process for the peaceful transfer of power. Our revolution continues each election at the ballot box, and tomorrow we will renew the spirit of the American Revolution once again. Let freedom ring!
- Sarah Palin
