How Sarah Palin Used a Little Girl’s Lemonade Stand to Destroy Her Neighbor

Six thousand leaked emails! Faking her way through her own faith! “Incompetent and ethically compromised”!

It’s more schadenfreude than we can even stand.

Frank Bailey is the author of a new book entitled “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin” (is there any other kind?) and it sounds delicious. Bailey was once a part of Palin’s inner circle, which is how he got his hands on so many of her emails. She would probably be pissed if she actually read books.

Among the highlights:

  • Writing fake letters to editors and signing phony names
  • Spending hours to freeping TV station polls
  • Launching a smear campaign against a neighbor Palin didn’t like
  • Calling elderly supporters the “crazy old men’s club”
  • Miscellaneous mean-girl bullshit

Our favorite story is the one about the neighbor. This poor person complained about the traffic jams that Palin was causing around her mansion. Her response? Send her daughter out to sell lemonade, so that it would look like the neighbor was attacking a lemonade stand. GENIUS.

Palin also apparently defended her willful ignorance on just about everything by saying “Remember: amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.”

Amateurs? Wasn’t it God who provided instructions for … oh never mind.

      Nothing negative about Palin would shock or surprise me. We have long known about her pettiness and meanness. Now she wants to buy a home in Arizona – she will certainly be the jewel in the crown of THAT state.

      ____________________

      You have made two major errors.

      1. You claim that bashing Palin is classless and graceless, HOWEVER, what you fail to point out is that it is incorrect. Here is a woman who has quit every single job she has ever had, including governor. Who’s oldest child had to join the military or face jail, her next youngest got knocked up in High SChool and dropped out, and her next youngest has been in trouble for making bigoted comments publiclly. Additionally…..

      2. PAlin couldn’t even answer the question about where she gets her news and then tried to blame the person who asked the question. She has done nothing to learn about the issues, merely claims victim hood and sexism whenever anybody asks her to defend a position.

      3. LASTLY, What makes you think we care if the anti-gay groups have disdain for us? The fact that a bunch of inbread rednecks who are this generations anser to the KKK doesn’t like us, is a compliment.

      NOW, why don’t you tell us why YOU are spending your time cruising around on a gay blog? Huh????????

      @Politically Incorrect Thug….No doubt you are a frustrated Log Cabin Republican. Not only does your comment wreak of self hatred and self pity but speaks nothing of the biblical sized disaster if this woman would have had to step into the presidency in the event McCain won and suddenly died.

      I see also you spoke not one word of her “virtrues” but then that is to be expected because they do not exist. Have a nice cry with the rest of your lost members and always remember that you do have a home within the community the day you come to your senses and see how misguided you are. You are like a black man cheering for the KKK.

      @Politically Incorrect Thug: My, my, my. I had no idea the anti-gay groups had any positive feelings for us. Well of course, I will refrain from criticising the automatons they so love. Far be it from me to do something that would adversely affect the feelings of these groups who state that we are an abomination before god and should not be suffered to live, love, or get laid.

      While we are at, maybe we should disband our gay pride marches, close the gay bars, all those pesky gay organisations, and of course any sauna where naked gay men might do something. I think we should also shut down all the gay websites even those not dealing in pornography such as this one.

      Do you think that will be enough to win more positive feelings from the anti-gay groups? No? I bet I know what might help. What if we all mixed up some special blue Kool-aid like they did at Jamestown and drink big swigs of it. That would make the anti-gay groups really like us then.

      If the purpose of this post were relevant, fine; as it is, it’s simply a hatchet job to appease those of you suffering from Palin Deragngement Syndrome. I hate Palin blah blah I hate Fox News blah blah I hate Republicans blah blah. Such hardcore sycophancy is seldom seen as it is here among the gay community. Those who still obsess over Palin (whose run for office was 3 years ago, by the way) probably still fret about Y2K, as well. Find a new hobby, eh? One that has relevance. AND doesn’t make you come across as a . . . wait for it, here it comes . . . BULLY!

      Until we actually see the evidence, we don’t know what is and isn’t true. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a libel lawsuit as soon as the book is released.

      If you think Sarah is scary now, keep in mind that she’s only in second place in the 2012 polls by a few points. She could easily win the nomination.

      I actually met her at a dinner and spent a few minutes talking to her. I was shocked by how much she had turned herself around since 2008. She answered questions with intelligence and poise, looking much more comfortable than she did in her 2008 interviews. I’m expecting her to be a serious contender this year.

      ________________________-

      Actually I gave you a list of reasons, but you chose to ignore them. So rather than accusing people of Palin “Derangement Syndrome” which is a catch phrase cooked up by Fox News. Perhaps you should try to figure out why it is you feel the need to blindly defend her and ignore any relevent complaints posted here.

      Oh, and nice try using the “Catch Phrase” of Bully, but to try to compare gay kids getting beaten until they kill themselves, to a women legitimately asked why she has quit every single job she’s ever had, is just telling us that she is so weak that she can’t even explain or defend her own actions. So thanks for clearing that up.

      Oh, and the fact that you have now spent over 3 hours on this blog just tells us that you aren’t just gay…You’re REAL gay!.

      The Lible lawsuit would have been filed pre-release to stop publication if there was any valid way they could do that. The fact that she didn’t file one means that she most likely didn’t have grounds…so that makes it interesting. lol

      @Cam: Relax, Cam-man, I’m not defending Palin, I’m just pointing out how unnecessary it is when gay people viciously condemn her, since she’s done nothing to hurt us. It’s pointless, mean-spirited grandstanding that may make you feel superior and mighty, but in reality makes you come across as anything but. When you attack a person just because they exist (and especially their family—I mean, Jesus Christ), I tend to be vaguely reminded of those Westboro wackos who attack the familes of fallen heroes.

      Palin Opposed Supreme Court Ruling Giving Same-Sex Couples Benefits: Asked if she would support the Alaska Supreme Court’s ruling that spousal benefits for state employees should be given to same-sex couples, Palin responded, “No, I believe spousal benefits are reserved for married citizens as defined in our constitution.” [Eagle Forum questionnaire]

      Palin Opposed Expanding Hate Crimes Laws: Asked if she would support an effort to expand hate crime laws, Palin responded, “No, as I believe all heinous crime is based on hate.” [Eagle Forum questionnaire]

      Palin Said She Supported Ban on Gay Marriage and Denying Benefits to Gay Couples: “Palin said she’s not out to judge anyone and has good friends who are gay, but that she supported the 1998 constitutional amendment [to ban gay marriage]. Elected officials can’t defy the court when it comes to how rights are applied, she said, but she would support a ballot question that would deny benefits to homosexual couples. ‘I believe that honoring the family structure is that important,’ Palin said. She said she doesn’t know if people choose to be gay.” [Anchorage Daily News (Alaska), 8/6/06]

      Palin Said She Supported a Constitutional Amendment Overturning Supreme Court Mandate of Benefits for Same-Sex Couples: Asked if she would support a Constitutional amendment to overturn the Alaska Supreme Court decision mandating public employers to provide benefits equivalent to same-sex couples, Sarah Palin responded “yes.” [Alaska Family Council Voter Guide, 8/22/06]

The anti-gay values you decribed belong to almost half the country out there, so why pick on her? She’s not an elected official, or a TV personality, or a renown writer, so what makes you so incensed by her opinion above that of others’? I’m not being confrontational; I truly am interested in knowing what drives your animosity toward the woman.

She was the biggest mistake John McCain made in his entire political career. But, much like the first ammendment, just because I don’t like her doesn’t mean I won’t stand up for her against people whose goal is to destroy her just because she holds different values.

      @Politically Incorrect Thug: The amount of abject projection this knee jerk reactionary displays, as well as pure lack of comprehension, lack of compassion, lack of empathy and his obtuse rejection of reality, is breathtaking. That’s what comes from subjection to magical thinking as reality and “Truth” from an early age. When life clashes with what guys like this want it to be, they make stuff up, and accuse others of that which is at the very core of their being. Were demogogues such as PIThug weren’t out to hurt us in the many ways he and his ilk are, they would be fit only for pity. Instead, they would have us adjust our very being, not just our behavior, to fit their delusion, to make THEM comfortable; to assure themselves that their dysfunction is an okay way to be. Palin keeps encouraging, for profit, those who make life changing decision based on demonstrably false and antisocial myth, not to mention all the guano crazy other stuff she espouses while over which she denyies responsibility. For the company she keeps, alone, it is imperative to call her out on her inane antics and abject insanity at every turn. And, sociopaths like Thug, too. Keep it up, fellas. Fair play to you.
