Sarah Shares her Knowledge with People Readers......and shows how little she really does know!

People magazine takes readers questions and Sarah Palin gives her answers/advice. There was one that really struck me as one that shows how little she really knows, and how it is really all about her, no matter the discussion.

The former Alaska governor and VP candidate sat down with PEOPLE on Nov. 14 to answer some reader questions.

As a military wife, and mother of two special-needs children, I wonder what you can recommend to keep my sanity during the long deployments with two children who are very trying at times. – Erin Pruneda, Ft Campbell, Ky.

Oh, man. That just gives me goosebumps. See, these gals have it so much tougher than I did. Looking back 18,19 years ago, when Track and Bristol were tiny, and Todd would be on the slope [oil fields], there were some days I felt sorry for myself. I had nothing to whine about when I compare that situation to the military wives and husbands whose spouses are deployed. The sanity is sweat – going out for a walk or a run and taking the kids with you so that they realize that these fun physical activities are good for them, too.

Thunk! (sound of my forehead hitting the desk)

Really? This is the answer you give this woman? Really? You recommend that a parent with two special needs children take them out running with you? That was the best you could come up with? No suggestions on seeking outside resources to get help? No suggestions to find a sitter to give yourself a night off once in a while? No suggestions of groups designed to help special needs families? No suggestions to ask the family doctor for suggestions or ideas where she can get help?

Telling this woman to go running and take her special needs kids with her is the best you can do?

Sarah Bans Media!

Sarah Palin really is "Going Rogue."

The media will be barred from covering Palin's Dec. 2 speech at College of the Ozarks, according to college public relations director Elizabeth Andrews.

Locking the media out from her speech in the private school's Keeter Gymnasium was part of Palin's contract, Andrews said.

No Media or No Sarah

Governor Sarah Palin will speak on patriotism, citizenship and civic engagement at College of the Ozarks December 2, at 7 p.m. in the Keeter Gymnasium. The prelude to the Leonard B. and Edith Gittinger Community Convocation featuring Governor Palin will begin at 6:30 p.m.


Why is Sarah so afraid of the media seeing her speech? What is she hiding? There must be something she is worried that the press or the media will report on what she is going to say, otherwise why bar them from this speech as a part of her contract?

This isn't the first time she has done this either. She did the exact same thing when she spoke in Hong Kong. She stated then that if the press was allowed she would have to change her planned speech, and you have to wonder what it is she is trying to keep people from seeing. Her last RTL speech the media was banned, but so were cellphones, recording devices etc.., and they went so far as to use metal detectors to scan people prior to entering the hall.

We know that she is a control freak, but this goes well beyond being a control freak, and it also goes beyond being worried about "the filter of the media" as she likes to say.

Is she worried that it will become widely known that when she speaks she doesn't show the same level of competence her facebook postings imply? We know she isn't writing them, but that is already common knowledge. She isn't able to articulate anything in a manner even remotely close to what her facebooks posts imply. They are simply written by others on subjects she wants to address and her name is placed on them.

Sarah's Latest Run In

It seems that Sarah Palin is quite unhappy with Newsweek for the photo of her on their cover this week.

Once again she resorts to facebook to offer up her rant on this latest upset in her life.

The choice of photo for the cover of this week's Newsweek is unfortunate.
When it comes to Sarah Palin, this "news" magazine has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant. The Runner's World magazine one-page profile for which this photo was taken was all about health and fitness - a subject to which I am devoted and which is critically important to this nation. The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now. If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, gender, or color of skin. The media will do anything to draw attention - even if out of context.

- Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin Facebook Note Page

First of all, if the picture bothers her so much why did she pose for it? Secondly she claims that the photos she did for the "Runners World" article were about health and fitness, and yet that picture has nothing to do with running, and all about her posing. What do the two blackberries apparently surgically attached to her hand have to do with health and fitness?

What about that American Flag, so casually tossed over a chair for her to lean on, what does that have to do with running, or health or fitness? Does she think that if she doesn't have the flag right there that no one will know she is from the United States?

I also have to question her claims that the runners world interview was a "one page profile", when in fact it was 5 pages long, and had numerous photos of her posing. None of her running, or even looking like she does when she is *really* going out for a run

Like this..........

Not quite the same look she had in the magazine photos that's for sure.

Now if you feel like reading all 5 pages of the interview with her you can do so Here

Otherwise, to give you an example of some of the questions asked of her during this interview....

*So you grew up running with your siblings?

*What did your parents teach you about running?

*If the campaign had turned out differently, you would have been in Washington D.C. much of the time. Was there a part of you that was a little reluctant to leave behind the landscape of Alaska for four or eight years?

*What about in a race? Could you beat the president?

So yeah, that is really all about Health and fitness Sarah..NOT! The only one who is using sex to sell themselves is YOU and you are more than just a little obvious about it. You cry sexism at every turn, much like throwing shit against the wall, you are just hoping at some point something sticks.

Grow up Sarah and stop turning yourself into a victim at every turn and maybe you will have fewer covers asking "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Sarah?". They ask that question because never in the history of this country has there been someone so hell bent on getting famous, and ensuring that their face is EVERYWHERE, while at the same time consistantly proving that they have the intellectual capacity of a garden slug.

Sarah & Fans Terrified People will read her book

That seems to be the reaction to people posting photocopies of a few of the pages of Sarah's latest series of lies.

OT - The Palingates web page had scanned pages from Sarah's book. I
checked a couple of books and that breaks copyright violation. If anybody knows
how to get screeenshots this needs to be sent to Sarah and Harper Collins
immediately. I can't find this site right now. I know it has ties with Celtic
Diva. Remember all sites are registered to somebody so they are responsible. If
anybody can find this Please do the screenshots. Today, 12:26:40 AM

Yes, it sounds like clear copyright violation. Will Sarah want to
sue those people? Maybe. Let her know. She should have that tool if she wants to
use it. (No, I haven't looked at that website, and won't.) You might be able to
create a pdf of it. Easy on a Mac by selecting print... then pdf. Today, 1:25:40

Thanks JeanA. I just fear they will catch this and remove it from their
sites. With a screenshot from their sites they could remove but the damage is
done. Writing in their own words is one thing but I don't think it is legal to
put pages on-line. I just don't have the computer skills to do screenshots. I
have let Harper COllins know. Today, 1:05:05 AM–

tried but to no avail. If we can get to Harper Collins they will likely contact
the sites if it is illegal. As I said not a copyright attorney but the front of
the books I have all say this is a no no. Today, 1:28:57 AM–

This was the reaction to a couple of pages of Sarah's book being linked to at the blog


So what happened?

Harper Collins attorney, Christopher Goff sent an email to Palingates and demanded that the photos of the book be taken down claiming copyright priviledge!


And as an additional note, the same notice was sent to Celtic Diva's Website

As you can see, I took the pages off the site. However, the real story here is this:

--The Senior Vice President of Harper Collins,


--Sent emails to two specific blogs, one little blog based in Alaska, another based overseas,

--ignoring the multiple other outlets (many of which were larger or were "Palin-positive") that have pages or "extensive excerpts" from her book on the site.

They didn't do this on their own. Palin picked the ones she wanted them to email. Perhaps not-so-coincidentally, my posts in question leaned towards fact-checking/lie-refuting than some of the others that were more for entertainment.

In other words, this was Palin-flattery!

I was once asked if, God forbid, Palin ever did become President, what would her first act be? I stated that she would gather up the considerable resources available to a U.S. President and use go after her "enemies" in Alaska and the media.

I rest my case.

And in light of all this, the question I have for Mr. Goss and HarperCollins: HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE PALIN'S BITCH?

Harper Collins Emails Celtic Diva's Blue Oasis

Now as you can imagine this has done far more to bring attention to these sites than it has to diminish viewership. Wonkette & Andrew Sullivan have both linked to Palingates which is bringing in tremendous amounts of hits to that blog.

So what is Sarah Palin, her fans & Harper Collins worried about? That people will read the lies she told in a couple of pages and won't want the book anymore? Or are they just worried that these lies will be exposed before Sarah has a chance to "explain her lies" during her interviews with Oprah & Barbara Walters? If anything they should be thrilled with the publicity, instead they are demanding removal of the offending material.

Oddly enough though they are only going after a select few bloggers, in fact only those bloggers that the Conservative4Palin fans cried about.

Yes folks, Sarah's fans are such huge crybabies that they complained to Sarah and Harper Collins for posting Sarah's own words! These same people who cry that Sarah is not given a fair shake are complaining when her words are shown in full. If excerpts were offered, no doubt they would cry that the excerpts were a false representation of what was said, something was taken out of context, so it seems that nohing makes them happy, unless you simply prostrate yourself before Sarah and worship on the ground she walks upon.

In other news, we've seen a few comments around the blogosphere that RAM aka Rebecca A. Mansour has been seen in Wasilla lately and is going to be working at the Palin compound once it is up and running.

You remember her don't you? She is one of the founding members of Conservatives4Palin, and is also the one who denied having an direct connection to Sarah Palin previously, and Meg Stapleton on behalf of Sarah Palin denied having any affiliation with Conservatives4Palin as well. Odd how it worked out that RAM ended up leaving her home in California for Alaska and is now in the employ of Sarah Palin.
