Sarah Palin bankrupts campaign with demands for private jets and hotel suites

Once upon a time good old fiscal conservative and mama grizzly travel to Georgia to endorse and campaign for the woman seeking to be the GOP candidate for Georgia’s next Governor. Well that woman Karen Handel lost her bid to be the state’s GOP nominee, but the race wasn’t all she lost.

While there was speculation from the very beginning if an endorsement from Sarah Palin would help or hurt the candidate, Palin came to Georgia anyway.

What Karen Handel’s supporters didn’t realize at the time was the good money they donated to her campaign would be used to put Sarah Palin and her family in luxury hotel suites and cruising around in private jets funded by their donations.

Certainly neither Karen or her supporters realized at the time that not only would Mrs. Palin’s visit to Georgia not provide the boost her campaign needed but that it would also bleed that campaign dry. But that is exactly what happened and Handel is said to now be $28,000 in the whole thanks to Sarah Palin.

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

Karen Handel, the former secretary of state whom Deal beat in the Aug. 10 Republican runoff, spent more than $100,000 to bring Sarah Palin to town to campaign on her behalf.

But it came at a high cost. Handel’s campaign spent more than $100,000 for the visit by Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate.

Handel’s campaign paid an Ohio jet charter service nearly $92,000 and her latest campaign finance report shows it was for the Palin event. Handel also paid an additional $13,000 in expenses to the InterContinental Hotel in Buckhead for the event.

Handel’s quarterly report shows her campaign committee to be $28,000 in debt, with another $55,000 in outstanding expenses.


Sarah Palin’s Ghostwriter Didn’t Vet Sarah Either

Once again it seems Sarah Palin’s ghostwriter still doesn’t get it.

First, someone should tell this writer that if they are going to convince the general public that this is Palin doing the ‘talking’ if you will, then it should least sound even a wee bit like Sarah. It might be a good idea to actually vet some of Palin’s own thoughts, statements and actions from the past too. Oh I know McCain didn’t vet her, so why should you when all you’re doing is pretending to be her, but you might be a little more convincing if one, you sounded like Sarah and two if Sarah didn’t seem to contradict herself so much. sp_scaryI mean I know we’re used to it by now and that she never says the same thing twice, but really, you’re getting pretty lazy now. So here for a second time in just a months time we have a ghostwriter attempting to make Sarah look smart and informed on the issue of health care using GOP talking points passed off as Sarah’s own thoughts and ideas. Come on!

I was for Death Panels before I was against them. Kind of like the bridge she was for until McCain’s campaign staff told her she was against it.

I mean seriously, we haven’t seen Palin since she walked off the stage and jumped into a waiting SUV at her quitter picnic in Fairbanks. Such a hasty exit she didn’t even stick around and wait for Todd or Trig. Yet we’re supposed to believe that in less than two months time she’s not only learned how to speak properly but now is informed on the issues of health care let alone common sense?

Come on ghostwriter, what do you take us for?
“Mr. Obama” says that everything will be swell, but we know it won’t. Common sense should tell you that anything run by the government won’t work, and that they are not telling you the truth because they always lie.

The only thing remotely ‘Sarah’ in this statement is the lack of respect shown in referring The President of The United States as Mr. Obama. Yet, she who needs no title can’t stop referring to herself (I mean the ghostwriter) as Governor Palin.

I think Mr. or Ms. Ghostwriter underestimates our common sense or the power of the internet and time. I mean really you think anyone buys this

We often hear such overblown promises from Washington. With first principles in mind and with the facts in hand, tell them that this time we’re not buying it.

from the very woman who so desperately wanted to be the next President Vice President of the United States?

Watch your back if you ever travel through Idaho folks

Yes folks, racism is alive and well in Idaho. Hate the President well then Idaho’s the place for you. So are we to assume race baiting, hatred and violent rhetoric is all you need to get elected in Idaho these days? According to Rammel himself it’s been a real boon to his campaign. He even thinks that this his off color hateful ‘joke’ as he labeled it will push him over the top right to the Governor’s mansion.

Let’s hope the majority of Idaho rejects this racist tool.

“This country needs to lighten up,” the GOP gubernatorial candidate said during a press conference in a Boise park Tuesday.

Last week, a GOP rally attendee shouted a question about “Obama tags” during discussion of Idaho’s upcoming wolf hunt, where hunters must purchase an $11.50 tag as a license to kill a wolf.

Rammell responded, “The Obama tags? We’d buy some of those.”

“Hopefully, if there’s people in Idaho that didn’t know me, then they’ll know me now. I think I’ll come out of this much better off,” Rammell told the Rexburg Standard Journal in eastern Idaho, where he lives.

“These GOP leaders have jumped all over it to try to ruin my run to be the governor,” Rammell said at his Tuesday press conference.flesh-4

“If people think I want to assassinate President Obama, I’ll apologize for that all day long. That is not my intention,” Rammell said. “But I will not apologize for making an innocent comment.”

So, there ya have it folks. It’s good for his career and quite frankly not his fault that he’s a biggot, it’s the medias and the GOP who need to lighten up. If the President is shot, then Mr. Rammell might apologize, but for now he’s completely happy being a racist tool.

If not, then I’d stay out of Idaho if you’re any darker than the peach colored crayon in the Crayola box.
