66 Pages of Facts About Mayor Sarah Palin

The more American voters find out about Sarah Palin, the less comfortable they are with the idea that she could, in the case of an elderly McCain’s illness or death, become President of the United States in as little as five months from now.

The Militant Moderate writes: “I want to vote for McCain, but he is working hard to convince me otherwise. The nomination of Sarah Palin is only the latest, most egregious, example.”

The McCain campaign says that Sarah Palin is not ready to hold a press conference or to be interviewed by journalists. The mystery on the minds of voters is how Palin could possibly be ready to succeed John McCain as President of the United States if she can’t even answer a reporter’s questions.

If the McCain-Palin campaign won’t give the Press the chance to find out more about Sarah Palin directly, then it’s up to the Press, and to the rest of us, to find out what we can on our own. A good place to start is the sixty six page summary of Sarah Palin’s time as mayor of Wasilla, created by Democrats in 2006. The summary is written by Democrats, but the information is from state and local newspapers and the public record.

Read. Inform yourself.

Then call the McCain-Palin press office at 703-650-5550 and tell them you expect Sarah Palin to start answering reporters’ unscripted questions today. Call the Washington Post ombudsman at 202-334-7582 too, and get ask the D.C. paper to put the pressure on McCain as well.

    We must not forget that Sarah and Jeff eloped about eight months before Track was born.
    Married August, 1988. Track born April, 1989.

    Good gawd, WHY would he choose such a controversial running mate? i think he shot himself in the foot on this one. The more you look into her, the worse she seems – she’s also a graduate of GOPAC and changed colleges 6 times in 6 years according to http://www.comcast.net/articles/news-politics/20080904/CVN.Palin.Education/
    whcih puts her in the same educational ballpark as our current dunce in chief.

    Ready! Fire! Aim! heh. It looks like the McCain campaign took Karl Rove’s advice and shot themselves in the foot – multiple times. It’s quite impressive.

    “I don’t think you ever kill any political party. Political parties kill themselves, or are killed, not by the other political party but by their failure to adapt to new circumstances. But do you weaken a political party, either by turning what they see as assets into liabilities, and/or by taking issues they consider to be theirs, and raiding them?” The thought brought to his round, unlined, guileless face a boyish look of pure delight. “Absolutely!” -Karl Rove, The New Yorker, May 12, 2003

    Aelred, you say “we must not forget that they eloped 8 months before Track was born”…. Why??? That was 19 years ago! You believe they knew she was pregnant immediately and decided to have a “shot gun wedding” as you put it? Whether it was or wasn’t is a non-issue! How about the thousands of women having baby after baby…for what? More money from the government to support them so they don’t have to work! Also…I hope to see you sign your name to a statement about Obama doing drugs 22 years ago! He admitted that you know! You would be SHOCKED by what I see every day. You want to stand up and speak about something…find things worth talking about. Make a difference!

    Tom, you state that McCain picked a “controversial running mate”… This doesn’t even make sense! Palin has integrity and is consistent! What’s controversial about that? I wasn’t even planning to vote till McCain took the stand for choosing a person who basis her life on integrity, values and high moral standards. With regards to her education… Where is it written that you MUST go to the same school…every year till you graduate? Palin obviously wasn’t finding what she needed or desired to expand her horizons as she was going through her final years of being a student. I think that hardly makes her a dunce! I know many people with Ivy League educations that would far better fill the position of dunce before I would place Palin in that category!

    EvilPoet, your name makes me sad. Why anyone would want to describe themselves as evil when there is so much good to be done in this world. Your comment written by Karl Rove however I agreed with…but not in the context of McCains choice. I challenge you to look back at the biography’s of those leaders who have not had integrity and took advantage of their power. McCain chose a VP candidate who would be able to go through the fire…not get burned and still be able to maintain her integrity throughout persecution and abuse by the media that was not warranted however was brought on by the choice of her daughter, a young adult who is 100% responsible for her decisions. Going through these trying times will not break Sarah Palin or her family because of how they chose to raise their children. That is the true testimony in all of this because what they are going through now is a Miracle of life! That’s right… conceiving a baby…no matter what the stage of life is…is still a life. Our country needs to stand up for what’s right which will take us back to decency, respect for others, integrity, independence and many other things that have been missing. I hope you experience someone showing you how wonderful life can be when you are living right and being an example for future generations.
