Yes, more. Hope you don't get bored, but this is as much for my "memory book" as it is for anyone to read.
Oh, Sweet Sarah...

GIBSON: And you didn't say to yourself, "Am I experienced enough? Am I ready? Do I know enough about international affairs? Do I -- will I feel comfortable enough on the national stage to do this?"
PALIN: I didn't hesitate, no.

HANNITY: What was your family's reaction? Was there time to huddle and have a hockey team meeting?

PALIN: It was a time of asking the girls to vote on it, anyway. And they voted unanimously, yes. Didn't bother asking my son because, you know, he's going to be off doing his thing anyway, so he wouldn't be so impacted by, at least, the campaign period here.So asked the girls what they thought and they're like, absolutely. Let's do this, mom.


“'Guys and gals, our regulatory system is outdated and needs a complete overhaul. Washington has ignored this. Washington has been asleep at the switch and ineffective and management on Wall Street has not run these institutions responsibly and has put companies and markets at risk,' Palin told the cheering crowd, 'They place their own interests first instead of their employees and the shareholders who actually own these companies.' 'We are going to reform the way Wall Street does business and stop multi-million dollar payouts and golden parachutes to CEOs who break the public trust.'”

PALIN: And you're right, our economy is weak right now and we've got to strengthen it, and government can play an appropriate role to strengthen the economy. Our 6.1 percent unemployment rate is unacceptable, also, across our nation. We need to put
government back on the side of the people and make sure that it is not government solely looked at for all the solutions, for one. Government has got to get out of the way, in some respects, of the private sector, being able to create the jobs that we need, jobs that are going to allow for the families to be able to afford health care, to be able to afford their mortgages, to be able to afford college tuition for their kids. That's got to be the principal here, reform government, recognize that it's not government to be looked at to solve all the problems.


“And another thing near and dear to my heart, it's going to be helping families who have special needs and children with special needs. And we're going to be pushing for innovative cures for diseases.”

"To the families of special-needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters.I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House. "

As governor, Palin vetoed $275,000 in Special Olympics Alaska funds (Page 100, SB 221 with vetoes) and cut special ed funding in Alaska over three years. (See here, here and here.)

Less of a contradiction, then it is a what the fuh?? They though this was a better explanation??

"The campaign says it can prove Monegan was fired in July because of insubordination on budget issues, and not because he refused to fire a state trooper who went through a nasty divorce from Palin's sister.To that end, the campaign released a series of e-mails detailing the frustration several Palin administration officials experienced in dealing with Monegan. The 'last straw,' the campaign said, was a trip Monegan planned to Washington in July to seek federal money for investigating and prosecuting sexual assault cases. In a July 7 e-mail, John Katz, the governor's special counsel, noted two problems with the trip: the governor hadn't agreed the money should be sought, and the request 'is out of sequence with our other appropriations requests and could put a strain on the evolving relationship between the Governor and Sen. Stevens.'"

And well it should have been the last straw!! Money to prevent sexual assault in a state where the crime is out of control? What a ri-fucking-diculous idea.

Lastly, I don't CARE if it's a fake, it makes me chuckle, so suck it if it bothers you for some reason!
