Why would a politician with a national profile be so quick to take the blame for a heinous act of local arson? Some claim BS Palin is a narcissist, something I'm inclined to agree with but that hardly distances her from most politicians. After all, pretty much every sitting President since JFK, with the possible exception of Jimmy Carter, could be nominated for consideration as a narcissist. No, this goes deeper than just everyday narcissism.
Bad Sarah quickly made a statement which shifted the "blame" for the torching of the local church to which she belongs to the national arena. The idea is "someone out there" in the big mean continental USA (or Hawaii?) must have decided they didn't like Palin's church. Her national profile brought this tragedy home to hurt the innocent locals.
But what about the idea that this was most likely a local crime, committed by, um...a local person? I think Sarah was so quick with statement because she doesn't want people to know how really really REALLY unpopular she is with some people at home.
So I will begin to document Sarah's image problem in Alaska, all the myriad things she's done or not done with her vested powers to piss off the good folks at home. Some are more important, some are less important, but all of them are dead wrong and some of them are chilling.
Palin Unpopular At Home Series #1
Palin No Friend To Women - Negative on Monegan's Attempt to Start State's First Rape Prevention Program
This buried story from early September is a nexus for SEVERAL Palin atocities:
- Recently Palin cited "executive privilege" in order to refuse releasing documents and transcripts of her testimony on Troopergate. Her spokesperson said BS wants to put the incident “behind her.” Sarah Barracuda, what are you hiding?
- Palin is already well known for her unpopular stand that recently raped women must pay $1000 for investigative kits the local police need to gather evidence. You know, 'cause Alaska doesn't have any money. Or oil revenues to pay for trivial crime solving equipment.
leads the nation in reported forcible rapes. Surprised? Alaska
- Being the reformer she is, Palin fired Walt Monegan, by her own admission, not because he refused to go along with firing that pesky ex-relative, but specifically because Mr. Monegan SCHEDULED A TRIP TO SECURE FUNDS FOR A MASSIVE ANTI-RAPE PROGRAM to be started in
, the first of it’s kind. What a cad. What a "rogue" as she calls him in official documents. Alaska
- Let’s not forget that BS is one of the few (only?) persons holding executive office in the US that believes a woman should give birth when they are pregnant after being raped and/or sexually abused by relatives. This is because of Sarah's own strongly held religious conviction that God says this is the only way to proceed in such a situation. This is an extreme position even for many Pro-Life advocates, and it comes directly from Palin's attendance at her Wasilla church. This congregation would like to see their personal religious convictions put into the civil legal code, so that all women (and men for that matter) regardless of their wishes, their personal history, and their individual religious preferences would have to conform to the Wasilla Bible Church's doctrine.
- So if you are a woman in Alaska, you are more likely to get raped, Sarah isn't helping you to prevent rape, she is firing those that do, and if you are raped, you must shell out a lot of money to help the police catch the guy, and if you are pregnant from rape, well, don't expect any help from the Christians at Sarah's church if you don't want to do things their way.
- All rather incendiary, don't you think?
The documentation for this story first surfaced in early September on ABC News, then was picked up by angryindian.blogspot.com. Click on title above for the original post.
An internal government document obtained by ABC News appears to contradict Sarah Palin's most recent explanation for why she fired her public safety chief, the move which prompted the now-contested state probe into "Troopergate."
ABC News: Exclusive: New Doubts Over Palin's Troopergate Claims (early September, 08)
Fighting back against allegations she may have fired her then-Public Safety Commissioner, Walt Monegan, for refusing to go along with a personal vendetta, Palin on Monday argued in a legal filing that she fired Monegan because he had a "rogue mentality" and was bucking her administration's directives.
"The last straw," her lawyer argued, came when he planned a trip to
