Sarah Palin Is A Redneck?

I do not personally know the writer of this letter. A friend of mine who went to Harvard forwarded it to me. I mention his school so you know he is smart and very liberal.  [Remo is right -- Sarah Palin is terrifying to anyone with a brain -- I mean left of center.]

Dear Classmates -

As an Alaskan, I am writing to give all of you some information on Sarah Palin, Senator McCain's choice for VP. As an Alaska voter, I know more than most of you about her and, frankly, I am horrified that he picked her.

The most accurate description of her is red neck. Her husband works in the oil fields of Prudhoe Bay and races snow mobiles. She is a life time member of the NRA and has worked tirelessly to allow indiscriminate hunting of wildlife in Alaska, particularly wolves and bears. She has spent millions of Alaska state dollars on aerial hunting of these predators from helicopters and airplanes, dollars that should have been spent, for example, on Alask a's failing school system.We have the lowest rate of high school graduation in the country. Not all of you may think aerial predator hunting is so bad, but how anyone (other than Alaska wolf-haters, of which there are many, most without teeth), could think this use of funds is appropriate is beyond me. If you want to know more about the aerial hunting travesty, let me know and I will send some links to informative web sites.

She has been a strong supporter of increased use of fossil fuels, yet the McCain campaign has the nerve to say she has "green" policies. The only thing green about Sarah Palin is her lack of experience. She has consistently supported drilling in ANWR, use of coal-burning power plants (as I write this, a new coal plant is being built in her home town of Wasilla), strip mining, and almost anything else that will unnecessarily exploit the diminishing resources of Alaska and destroy its environment.

Prior to her one year as governor of Alaska, she was mayor of Wasilla,a small red neck town outside Anchorage.The average maximum education level of parents of junior high school kids in Wasilla is 10th grade. Unfortunately, I have to go to Wasilla every week to get groceries and other supplies, so I have continual contact with the people who put Palin in office in the first place. I know what I'm talking about. These people don't have a concept of the world around them or of the serious issues facing the US. Furthermore, they don't care. So long as they can go out and hunt their moose every fall, kill wolves and bears and drive their snow mobiles and ATVs through every corner of the wilderness, they're happy. I wish I were exaggerating.

Sarah Palin is currently involved in a political corruption scandal.
She fired an individual in law enforcement here because she didn't like how he treated one of her relatives during a divorce. The man's performance and ability weren't considered; it was a totally personal firing and is currently under investigation. [NOTE: FROM MRS. L -- THIS ISN'T ENTIRELY CORRECT. The official she fired had refused to fire a law enforcement officer and former  Palin in-law who had threatened her family. Either way, she's being investigated for abuse of power.]

While the issue isn't close to the scandal of Ted Steven's corruption, it shows that Palin isn't "squeaky clean" and causes me to think there may be more issues that could come to light. Clearly McCain doesn't care.

When you line Palin up with Biden, the comparison would be laughable if it weren't so serious. Sarah Palin knows nothing of economics (admittedly a weak area for McCain), or of international affairs, knows nothing of national government, Social Security, unemployment, health care systems - you name it. The idea of her meeting with heads of foreign governments around the world truly frightens me.

In an increasingly dangerous world, with the economy in shambles in the US, Sarah Palin is uniquely UNqualified to be vice president. John McCain is not a young man. Should something happen to him such that the vice president had to step in, it would destroy our country and possibly the world to have someone as inexperienced and inappropriate as Sarah Palin. The choice of Palin is a cheap shot by McCain to try to get Hillary supporters to vote for him. when McCain introduced her today, Palin had the nerve to compare herself with Hillary and
Geraldine Ferraro. Sarah Palin, you are no Hillary Clinton.

To those of you who, like me, supported Hilary and were upset that she did not get the nomination, please don't think that Sarah Palin is a worthy substitute. If you supported Hillary, regardless of what you think the media and the democratic party may have done to undermine her campaign, the person to support now is Obama, not Sarah Palin. To those of you who are independent or undecided, don't let the choice of Palin sway you in favor of McCain. Choosing her shows how unqualified McCain is to be president. To those of you who are conservative, I guess you have no choice for president. But please try to see how the poor choice of Palin tells us a great deal about McCain's judgment.

While the political posturing inherent in the choice of Palin is
obvious, the more serious issue is the fact that the VP is, literally,
a heartbeat away from the presidency. Sarah Palin is totally and
unequivocally unqualified to be vice president, let alone president.

I know this is a lengthy and emotional email, but the stakes are high. I thought it might help for all of you, regardless of political
affiliation, to know something about Palin from someone who has to live with her administration in Alaska on a daily basis.


The internet blogs forced the Palins to reveal that their abstinence-only raised daughter got knocked up. Even though kids should be off limits to the media, a child whose parents hold such conversative views is going to get outed. Too bad Cheney's daughter wasn't given a chance to be heard back in 2000.

This Palin nomination fallout -- by "evil" liberal internet bloggers -- feels like it's building up a nice head of steam. The media keep asking the McCain campaign how well she was vetted. Wouldn't it be great if she had to step down? 

I can hope, can't I?

The only "fallout" from the liberal inquisition is the steaming pile lodged in their twisted-panties.

The Lost-in-America rant from Skippy Von Snootyshit is typical of the attitude of the Left.

"Oh my goodness, Muffy - that WOMAN is wearing WHITE after Labor Day..."

Welcome to the real world, buttwipe. People take their kids to church, tell them not to smoke dope, ditch school or make the humpty-dumpty in a snowbank and shit happens. Cop's kids and Preacher's daughters, as they say. Show a family without a black sheep or two and I'll show you the Partridge Family.

Sarah Palin is NO Hillary. Thank God. No Chinese donation-scams, no dead guys named Foster committing suicide, and no guy named "Scooter" stuffing classified evidence under his Jimmy.

Redneck? Better be careful. The most popular comedy act running is the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. Foxworthy, White, Engvall and a guy named "Larry the Cable Guy." NASCAR. Garth Brooks. Tractor-pulls and the Outdoor Channel.

If you want a killing in the stock market, forget Microsoft. Buy Bass Pro Shops or Cabela's.

It reminds me of the line from "It's a Wonderful Life":

"Everytime a liberal talks, a Republican gets a vote."

Back to you, Chet...

Ha! I actually laughed at some of Remos! Partridge...wait wasn't Danny the Black Sheep? He dragged them all in too! HA!

So true, I agree, on you can tell what not to do & they still will. Many of us did but it does say that hey you are not better than tho & your method is not necessary is great as you think...just like the Catholics idea of birth control...RIGHT!

Totally agree with the redneck idea...many who are & damn proud of it. I don't like labels & wish people would hold off on that & just use the contents like yes destroying our environment NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE...heck how many of the richest do the same! They hunt big game & they waste soooo much. Do they need marble floors? So both sides can be criticized for that.

Remo...don't be ruining my favorite movie though! The same statement could be made the opposite way!

No candidate is perfect. We all know that but somehow still desire it? Who is the intelligent one then?

Hey Mrs. L. how about Lou Piniella for a write in candidate? HA!

psychfun said...

OMG...Watching WGN news after the Cubs lost...ugh...and they are interviewing delegates for the Republican Convention. Some woman has the gall to say that Palin's daughter being pregnant is a private personal matter that we should not discuss. OMG...right like they felt that about Clinton's affair & Edwards! What hypocrits!

I wonder if the friend that forwarded you this email checked out the validity of it before sending.  When I receive emails of this nature I always check them out before forwarding.  Ninety-nine percent of the time they are loaded with lies.  Anytime I get something trashing a politician, no what party affiliation, it sends up a red flag immediately.  And, I'm quick to set the sender straight. There's too many folks out there with axes to grind and their own agendas to push who make up this stuff.  Frankly, I'm quite sick of it.

So, here's your assignment.  Research this and post your findings.  Class dismissed!

Actually, there's nothing new in this letter, except that she got the information about the law enforcement guy incorrect.

I am sending you a letter from a woman who is supposedly even closer to the situation.  With her phone number and everything.  So you can call her yourself.

Did your friend from Harvard graduate?  With the spelling and grammar demonstrated, I doubt it.

jevanslink said...

My friend from Harvard graduated and has an MBA from the University of Chicago. YOU hoiwever, apparently didn't learn how to read, since I said at the outset of this entry that he SENT me this letter. He didn't WRITE it. I don't know who wrote it.
