NPN Palin Resources and Links

I have a very good friend who has a very good phrase that has granted me much peace in various situations over the years.  He says, "People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime."  For me, blogging about Palin has been the occupation of a season, and thankfully, not a lifetime. 

Although Palin is still an active celebrity politico, in my heart I do not believe that the Bitter Quitter with the mealy-mouth charisma will ever again actually capture public office.

Nevertheless, interest regarding Palin's bizarre and operatic dance in the American political theater remains strong, and even this inactive blog receives hundreds of hits a month. I do receive your emails and questions and am aware that the archive system on blogspot is awkward at best.  So if you have landed here out of curiosity, or while surfing or searching, or just want to know about Palin stories of 2009, I'd like to make the research, links and essays of NailinPalinNow easy for you to use and access as a resource. (Items are cross referenced, so you might get the same post for different subjects).

Below is a linked Index of what you can find at NPN:

And For Those Interested, A Few Further Notes:

I very often see very heartfelt comments like, "Thanks to all the Alaskan bloggers for exposing Sarah Palin" on blogs that originate outside of Alaska.  While the general sentiment is what is important, perhaps it is time to point out that since at least 2008 the web-famous Alaskan efforts of the Immoral Minorty, Celtic Diva, Shannyn Moore and Mudflats have been joined by other blogging voices from all over the world, including activist anti-Palin bloggers in many US states, Canada, France, Britain, Australia and New Zealand. Until Palin's political corpse is finally put to rest once and for all, Palin remains the world's problem, and so for those of you that wish to send thanks, be sure to give it to "the worldwide Palin bloggers" when you do so.  Your thanks and the satisfaction of doing the right thing are all that most bloggers receive in return for their work and it means a lot to them!  So think and thank globally.

Of course the silver lining about the general alarm raised by Palin's careening fortunes over the past year or so is the formation of the quite brilliant and energetic online community that holds a lively first line of defense against the Granny Grifter.  Hat Tip to all of us commentors and bloggers, followers, researchers, lurkers, "Pee Watchers" and readers - I love being a part of us and my too-bright orange pic will be bobbing around just as usual online.  If I make a point to disagree with something, please understand that my aim is to keep the liberal community strong by keeping it attractive to moderate voters, as well as flexible enough to embrace the full spectrum of liberal thought. 

The effort to keep Palin out of public office has exceeded my wildest expectations with the breaking news, detailed research and incredible and numerous commenters at my pal the celebrated Regina's Palingates site with her partners Patrick and Kathleen.  Bree Palin has also stepped strongly into the spotlight - congrats my friends!  If you want to scare yourself and drop down the rabbit hole of the religious Dominionist, Evangelical and End Times side of Palin, I urge you to read anything by Frank Schaeffer as well as visit the excellent God's Own Party. The venerable Palin blogs of record are the many Alaskan blogs which are mentioned above and listed and linked to the left.  If you are new to the Palin blogiverse, whatever your question might be you will find answers at these resources, and an active online community more than willing to listen and exchange ideas.
