Palin on the leakers: “Those guys are jerks”

posted at 8:50 pm on November 7, 2008 by Allahpundit

First day back at work for the ‘Cuda, and it wasn’t uneventful. I’m giving you two versions, the nitty gritty 90-second hit from CNN and the extended director’s cut from MSNBC. No names are named, but the hint she drops about the NAFTA smear probably having come from one of her debate preppers is as heavy as a barbell. Who was in charge of prepping her? Among others, according to Fox News: Randy Scheunemann, her chief defender, as well as … Steve Schmidt and Mark Wallace, husband of Nicolle. Hmmmm.

The MSNBC clip heats up starting at around 1:45; apparently, she and McCain have been chatting about this. Exit quotation: “I never asked for anything more than maybe a Diet Dr. Pepper every once in awhile.”

Update: Ambinder on the Romney rumors:

As one of the first reporters to sense these ill-winds, I don’t see an organized conspiracy. The first people with whom I spoke had no connection to Romney’s campaign whatsoever — they were longtime McCain advisers and aides… so…they didn’t much like Mitt Romney. When Palin was first selected, of the five Romney aides/advisers I remember contacting, three had positive impressions and two had mixed impressions.

Now, as the campaign progressed, there were people who can be fairly described as being Romney advisers who began to criticize Palin and pass along what their Republican friends were telling them. But so did consultants, strategists and activists representing every potential 2012 candidate. And other Romney advisers continued to praise her.

Who ordered the hit on Palin? Everyone, apparently.

Update: The MSNBC clip’s long but worth watching, especially the part about double standards for women candidates.

It’s pretty clear that it was Sarah who got those 56 million votes, not McCain. And….if she’d had longer she would have gotten enough to beat Obama. Those sour grapes campaign workers and McCain had better get used to that fact whether they care for it or not.

Why is she still in the news?

crr6 on November 7, 2008 at 8:58 PM

It is interesting, isn’t it, how she’s been in the news more than the President-elect and the Vice President-elect the past three days? She’s spoken to the press more than Obama, Biden, and McCain combined since the election, and she’s had more substantive things to say. She has been gracious and upbeat despite an utter onslaught, while Obama is rolling in rose petals and still found it in him to say something unkind about an aging former First Lady.

As for why we admire her, here are a few:

* She negotiated an intercontinental pipeline that will bring tremendous benefits to Alaska, Canada, and the lower 48;
* She directly confronted corruption in her state, in her own party, and won while maintaining a tremendous popularity among members of both parties;
* She is very, very, very pro-drilling because she understands (and can explain) the benefits to the nation of becoming even slightly less dependent on foreign sources of oil; she can articulate how much revenue, how many jobs, and how much oil can be brought in and how it will (or won’t) impact the environment;
* She slices the state budget at every opportunity to cut spending and be fiscally conservative;
* She understands that lower taxes bring in higher revenues and higher taxes stifle growth;
* She is socially conservative but does not force her beliefs into law; she promotes her socially conservative agenda by living a socially conservative lifestyle herself;
* She demonstrates and represents middle-American values better than most politicians on the national scene today;
* She’s as Washington-outsider as you can get;
* She actually visits her National Guardsmen serving overseas and looks into their eyes and listens to their concerns and then comes home and takes action to make sure their needs are being met and that they are being honored by the state;
* She’s an incredibly quick study, a couple of bad interviews not withstanding; to me, it is obvious that she is politically astute and intellectually brilliant;
* And on and on.

If the media had ever given her a fair shake, you might have found a few things to admire about her, too. I know that while I despise both Obama and Biden, I have the intellectual honesty to acknowledge their admirable qualities. Can you admit that there is anything admirable at all about your political opposition, or are you so deeply entrenched in partisanship that you can’t be honest even with yourself?

Dude, WTH ya running on about ya wanna try and answer the question at hand what specific grotesque lies did Obama have to overcome? Seriously, do ya have reading comprehension issues?

PiggieSez on November 7, 2008 at 10:11 PM

Rick Davis made a mistake tonight when asked about the infamous “towel incident”. He said he had heard about it and he knew that two staffers (Mark Salter and one other name I don’t remember) were in the room. Sarah didn’t know they were there when she came out to the main area, realized she had company and went back to the bathroom. He followed up with “this is something that anyone would do when they found out other people were in the room”.

Okay so if this was a no big deal incident and there were only two high-level staffers in the room, why is the whole country talking about it. Which one of those two staffers told Carl Cameron?

And then he blew it by saying he has “no idea where the leaks are coming from and he wishes he knew”

With logic like this no wonder you lost the race, Rick.

You seem to like Governor Palin quite a bit. Could you explain why? I don’t want to hear identity politics crap about her being a real American nor do I want to hear about how her being scrutinized by the press somehow makes her admirable. Specifically, what has actions has she done which inspire you? What has she said that inspires you?

crr6 on November 7, 2008 at 9:30 PM

You seem to like Barack Obama quite a bit. Could you eplain why? I don’t want to hear identity politics about hopenchange nor do I want to hear that his skin color somehow makes him admirable. Specifically, what actions has he done which inspire you? (What he has said isn’t all that important.)

The Obama supporters seem so sad. I can’t figure out why.

baldilocks on November 7, 2008 at 9:52 PM

Inwardly they’re cringing in preparation for the first Obama &^%^-up, followed by a drop in popularity. They’re insecure. I wish the guy well, too. He’s soon to be my President. But probability is probability, and I haven’t yet seen anything from Obama that inspires my confidence.

ddrintn on November 7, 2008 at 10:14 PM

Ok. So she’s “genuine”

There’s gotta be something more to your affection for her? Is it mostly the identity politics?

I doesn’t surprise anyone here that you hold such a low opinion on honesty, integrity, and the value of genuineness. (All you have to do is look in your mirror to see the antithesis of those outstanding traits.)

In that realm, identity politics is A-OK. She attracts those of the same value system and encourages people to challenge themselves to become better people. The way the democrats and specifically O’ChimpyMacFanniemae do it, encourages apathy, laziness, and their favorite…hate toward others.

csdeven on November 7, 2008 at 10:14 PM

Hey, how about the One’s stupidity today. Unbelievable first impression he created so far….Emanuel….hits on a sick, elderly former president’s wife, a cadre of Washington insiders by his side. Granholm lost her state nearly 1 million jobs by raising taxes on state businesses.

I’ll answer you question troll, even though I shouldn’t.

What is there to like about Governor Palin?

– Fiscal conservative.
– Ran a government that gave a $1,400 rebate check to every tax paying citizen, during her first term no less.
– Ran on a anti corruption platfrom, and once she won she fought corruption.
– She say’s she will do something if elected, she actually does it.
– She speaks for herself and doesn’t allow others to do so for her.
– She thinks America’s stature in the world is just fine the way it is.
– She doesn’t want to surrender to America’s enemies.

Just to name a very few.

Care to explain why your hero is so worth of admiration? Especially since it’s only been 3 days since the election and he’s already backpeddling off his Robin Hood Welfare program?

Hog Wild on November 7, 2008 at 10:16 PM

Well said… where can one find real news?

beththebaker on November 7, 2008 at 10:00 PM

With news anymore it has become like investing in the stock market. To be a really good investor you have to read several stories and PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER to get the real news.

For instance. I have read twice now from two different people that Gov. Palin has a photographic memory. Two different people at two different times about two different things. I have also read that GOv Palin’s speech in front of the convention was done from memory when the telepromter malfuntioned. the knowledge she brought to the debate was deep and varied for a “hick form the sticks”

Now all of these stories do not jive with the narrative being spoken about Gov Palin being a dumb blonde.

One of the two stories are not correct. Which is it?

I have also read that people that meet Gov. Palin say do not underestimate her. I have seen the entire liberal left try to tear her down. And Now I am seeing the entire elite GOP trying to do the same.

This tells me this woman scares they. If she was a stupid hick why would she frighten them so?

The avg people the base have seen something in her something we can not yet define but we see it. She has not been able to let it out on a national stage yet becaus eof her handlers. I think a great many people are worried about what happens to their power structure when she does. this is a woman that people will go to war over. Gov. Palin is our Helene of Troy. And it frightens the entire establishment.

Thus real news is now only found by being a journalist yourself.
Just like real stock returns are now only possible by being your own broker.

As conservatives we must go and sign up other conservatives to vote. We need to organize.

I am certain that Governor Palin wouldn’t have made rude comments about any elder wife of a Democrat president.

The citizens in Michigan know exactly what to expect with Granholm on the economic council.

Sarah just drew a line in the sand, and something tells me she’s not as likely as certain other Republican politicians to just let the media get away with lies and unfounded rumor-mongering without a challenge any more.

You go to war with the army you got. we have 4 years to change our party for the better.

unseen on November 7, 2008 at 10:23 PM

Our army is bigger than Palin, Romney and Huckabee–three losers who will inevitably lose again as none of them are 51% candidates.

We need a candidate who will make young people and minorities want to be Republicans. We can’t forever be the party of white people and Baby Boomers, that’s an ever-shrinking demographic into the next decade.

Proof, please. Both of lies told by Gov. Palin and your belief of posters’ worship of same. The bar you set for “worship” must be very low indeed when comments of admiration and anger at ridiculous attacks are labeled as such. Besides, didn’t you say you were sick of hearing/reading about her?

That Ronald Reagan could never be a 51% candidate … or so they said in 1976

joey24007 on November 7, 2008 at 10:30 PM

In case I sound like an Palin-version of an Obama cultist, it is not so much the person – though she does appear to be wonderful, tough, honest, and just about as warm as a political person who can field-dress you just soon as reward you!

Any person who says what she says – it is the ideas expressed by the person. THAT is what I truly love about her. She actually believes the way I do. Not perfectly so, but enough to where I find myself just wanting the absolute best for her. I get the idea she is loyal, competent, professional, and truly a people’s servant. She makes me think of the best bosses I haved or great mentors.

Perfect? Nope. Ideal? Probably not?

Capable? You betcha!

She’s a leader. One who is not afraid to inspire, but also not above simply doing what needs done. If she needs to delegate she will, but I get the feeling she sees what needs done and does it!

Cannot believe how much I truly admire and adore this lady. If she were Sam Palin and talked the way she does, I’d probably would not phrase it the same way. (laugh)
I truly respect her. I am so jealous of Alaska. We have Mitch in Indiana, and he’s a good thing, but I’d love to work for Sarah. I bet it is an honor to do so.

Her show is starting to become a Palin infomercial. I’m okay with it, given it hardly balances out all the other media coverage which primarily attacks.

I guarantee you that if Sarah is caught doing something illegal, lying under oath, embezzling money, taking bribes, blatantly lying, or whatever else you think it’s normal and acceptable for politicians to do, we conservatives will turn on her in a heartbeat and demand that she be prosecuted and held accountable. Even those of us who are almost as much in love with Sarah as you guys are with Obama would speak out against such behavior. We would be deeply disappointed and undoubtedly bitter, but we would not blindly defend bad behavior just because she’s Sarah and we’ve invested our hopes and dreams in her. If she’s undeserving of our respect, we will not reward her.

aero on November 7, 2008 at 10:31 PM

After seeing this interview I’m sad all over again that she’s not our VP Elect. But maybe this just sets her up to be our next President. She really is a great lady. Once she’s on the top of the ticket and can make the decisions without having to defer to the nominee, she will really tear it up out on the campaign trail!!!! (Even more so than she already has!)

I think he will have to get in office first. But I am pretty sure that the media who worked so hard for his elections will work just as hard to hide those who do not fall in line. Oh and by the way, you know it will be Bush’s fault.

You are an idiot. Palin can and will expand the demographic. In this campaign she brought in an entire new section of voters. special needs families. A growing demographic. Her social conservatism can and will reach out to latinos. Her fiscal conservatism will attrack the small government less taxes folks, and her conduct IRT to her support of the wars and her steady refusal to allow Russia to swallow Gerogia will bring in the national security crowd. esp after the dems gut the military by 25% to fund there hope change fairy fart programs.

That leaves her free to go after the middle in true nixion/reagan/obama fashion. Her life story means she does not have to talk about social issues. she lives what she thinks. She doesn’t have to piss off the middle by talking about abortion. God etc.

She is a weapon of immense damage to Obama. now if only we can stop him from making sure elections are no longer free and fair we have a chance.

So true! Oprah was the one that Marketed The Dictator. She poured bucks. Soro’s poured bucks. Other Countries donated big bucks. Then notice that when he would speak to his sheep. the way he moved certain parts of his body. His facial expressions. How he spoke but didn’t finish what he was saying? Is a great technique. The Dictator was successful in pulling off the biggest scam ever. When the sheep wake up. They are going to go Baa Baa……. Then he tells them on his Winning night. Don’t expect me to be able to do anything I promised right away. And they are still sheepish over him. Sick sheep………

They still can’t name a single specific accomplishment of his that they admire, other than winning elections. They still can’t name anything of substance, just the cult of personality – he’s charismatic, he’s inspiring, he brings hope, he speaks well, etc. But unlike Sarah, he has no list of real, actual, measurable accomplishments that his followers can point to in admiration and as justification for their adoration of him.

I guess you missed the victory celebration at Grant Park in Chicago. That wasn’t a small gathering at the local 7-11. There was probably over a million people there so I think he can inspire a few people

aero on November 7, 2008 at 10:31 PM

Yeah, that’s the key difference between Sarah’s devotees and President-elect Obama’s. If it had been discovered during the campaign that Obama is a serial rapist, I guarantee you the moonbats would have 1) tried to suppress it or 2) try to maintain that it’s of no consequence or 3) claim it was all a plot by Karl Rove. All to win an election.

We conservatives stand on principle and are hard on our own. Sometimes too hard.

ddrintn on November 7, 2008 at 10:37 PM

aero: I said the same thing on another site. The love that her supporters have for Sarah is like a husband has for his wife. He will defend her to the death, even take a bullet for her. If she is criticized he will defend her passionately and circle the wagons. But if she ever cheats on him he will wreak vengeance on her just as passionately as he did when he defended her. As long as Sarah stays true to the cause of conservatism and isn’t a crook she will retain enormous support among the base. Today it is 91% (Rasmussen).

I doesn’t surprise anyone here that you hold such a low opinion on honesty, integrity, and the value of genuineness. (All you have to do is look in your mirror to see the antithesis of those outstanding traits.)

In that realm, identity politics is A-OK. She attracts those of the same value system and encourages people to challenge themselves to become better people. The way the democrats and specifically O’ChimpyMacFanniemae do it, encourages apathy, laziness, and their favorite…hate toward others.

csdeven on November 7, 2008 at 10:14 PM
