    Sarah Palin Tell-All: More Details, Marital Problems, Nude Photo, More - The Daily Beast

    The manuscript of the as-yet unpublished book authored by former Palin aide, Frank Bailey, appears to contain all sorts of incredible revelations. For example:

    "Palin Sent Letters to the Editor Using Other Names, Praising Herself

    Bailey writes that Palin drafted her own letters to the editor during her run for governor and sent them in under supporters' names. Palin relayed the first one in an email to Bailey:

    'Dear Editor,
    It's been a pleasure watching our life-long Alaskan gal, Sarah Palin, campaign for governor these past six months. I am impressed with her leadership skills, experience, ethics, and energy. And I'm most impressed with how she communicates her message that is connecting with so many Alaskans. Sarah tells it like it is and is obviously not your typical politician. She doesn't just go with the flow or test the waters with political polls before taking action. It's clear Sarah is committed to just doing the right thing, even if her Republican Party bosses try to punish her for it," the letter reads in part.'

    Bailey alleges the letter was the first of many they wrote in supporters' names, to be sent to Alaska newspapers."

    Sure she wrote them herself, just like she wrote her own books.

    You have to wish Palin well.
    In fact, I hope she is the Republican's presidential candidate in 2012.
    Nothing would please me more.

    Uh - don't a lot of people do that - it's fiscally responsible to do it yourself, rather than pay for a bandwagon! There are uncountable instances of protestors paid, & ferried around, cheerleading teams, stage managed events etc.

    Didn't Ty Cobb admit he did the self same thing to get attention?

    Don't boiler rooms & market makers hit message boards to ramp their stocks & shares, & various lobby/special interest groups posit themselves on all manner of forums?

    Of course unlike Palin - they don't use crayons.

    A lot of people commit rape, murder and incest.

    A lot of people beat and/or neglect their children.

    A lot of people lie, cheat and steal at every opportunity.

    Not to analogize Palin's actions to those I've just cited. But rationalizing any poor behaviour on the basis that "a lot of people do it" = a dubious argument indeed.

    Fuck me ST - they're all politicians! Didn't Obama's people(& GOP opponents) - who must have sanctioned it - get Jeri & Jack Ryan's sealed 4 year old divorce notes( just one example of the awful politicking they undertook) unsealed, thus causing his withdrawl from the race for the senate?
    Chicago Sun-Times:: Search

    They're not the only ones, & no political persuasion is clean - but writing in letters isn't a crime - there's also no guarantee they'll be published!

    Don't all politicians lie, & say they'll do one thing, then when elected, do the complete reverse.

    Come on, they're the lowest of the low - & SP's stuff is more akin to very low rent high school election marketing! Stories are created about public personalities all the time - it's not evil - just crass - & we all know it goes on.

    Lol!
    Double Lol!

    Don't let me stop you from utilizing any rhetorical calisthenics to absolve any and all persons on the planet for all manner of skullduggery and malfeasance.

    Meanwhile, I'll keep posting things that I find interesting.

    :smile: Hey, I never said that it wasn't amusing & informative! I particularly like the story out there, that her youngest child is actually her daughter's.

    Who hasn't lied (even by omission) on their CV?

    I find her self belief completely inverse to her intelligence. It's charming, in a way. Even Alvin Greene picked up about 25% of the votes in his election, which shows how entrenched some people are, but there's always a floating 10% in US presidential elections that always decide the outcome - & I'm confident she'll never get elected. I just think the left have got to make sure that should she be in the run off, she doesn't get an empathy vote. Soft attacks, rather than hard & nasty.

    People hate seeing a puppy mistreated.:wink:
