Sarah Palin’s released e-mails vs. Wikileaks releases. A comparison.

A long time ago, after Obama had won the election there arose a rumor among the left leaning bloggers. It rose to a hysterical pace and media got involved. Sarah Palin had breast implants! Even Greta van Susteren asked her to her face whether that was so. So I penned this Limerick:

A Sarah Palin limerick on unfounded rumors.

Sarah Palin was facing the Great Inquisition

 by left-leaning bloggers, they reached no decision,

on things of great weight,

like shape, size and height.

As for perfect figure: There was no incision.


Nobody thought much of that (not even I) and it languished in blog-land. But then came the release of her 30000+ e-mails and the public was invited to crowd-source the document dump. The excitement was enormous. I remember Andrea Mitchell with bated breath asking one after another “Found anything yet” Every time the answer was no, not yet, only that she was a hard working governor with many cute Palinisms in otherwise terse, effective communications. One could see the disappointment in Andrea’s face. “Keep trying’ she breathed, but no avail. They found nothing.  Out of nowhere my little Limerick had 1800+ hits that day.

Contrast that with the total media apathy about the Wikileaks daily releases. There are one bombshell revelation after another, but Washington Post for example fails to notice.

Question: Why is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton now so much less a person of interest than was then private citizen Sarah Palin?

Trig Palin is eight. Sarah Palin has plenty of time to enter national politics. A Limerick.

Trig Paxton von Palin is eight.

Good things come to those who can wait.

Sarah Palin has time;

fifty-two, in her prime;

but Hillary is sixty-eight.

A thought came to me. Suppose Donald Trump became president for two terms, followed by Sarah Palin for two terms; after sixteen years with Sarah Palin she will still be younger than Hillary Clinton would be at her inauguration.

here is a loving tribute to Sarah Palin from none other than Glenn Beck, from a few years ago:


Thought for the day. The Pope, The Trump, walls and bridges.

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. (Proverbs 25:28)

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”  Pope Francis.

The Vatican City’s old wall.Vatican_City_map_EN

A sign they’re not Christians at all?

For the Pope said as much

about Trump, walls and such.

Humpty Dumpty did fall, I recall.

The moral of this story: Be careful not to make off the wall remarks.

Joking aside, I took a look at how many times the word wall was used in the Bible and where it was used. There are so many tidbits we can learn from a word study. The first is in Leviticus 25: 29-31 ‘Likewise, if a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city, then his redemption right remains valid until a full year from its sale; his right of redemption lasts a full year. But if it is not bought back for him within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city passes permanently to its purchaser throughout his generations; it does not revert in the jubilee. The houses of the villages, however, which have no surrounding wall shall be considered as open fields; they have redemption rights and revert in the jubilee.

This is old Mosaic law, and gives clear guidance that the law in a protected place with borders is different from the law in places without borders, and property rights are clearly established. As a civil society we no longer follow Mosaic Law, that would be as ridiculous as if anyone demanded we should follow Sharia Law.

Moving on, there are the walls of Jericho, the wall of Jerusalem, Nehemiah rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem and the watchmen on the wall.

Then in the New Testament walls are not mentioned at all in the Gospels (In the parable of the tenants in Matthew and Mark it is literally a hedge, not a wall) and only Revelation describes the walls of the new Jerusalem. So the Pope is right, building walls does not appear in the Gospels. Neither does the word bridge appear anywhere in the Bible, so that part is extra-biblical, if one is to take his admonition literally. So if Sarah Palin as Governor refused to build “the bridge to nowhere”, does that make her a non-Christian? (A Limerick from way back comes back to memory)

Sarah Palin did not even think of Nantucket

when plans for that infamous bridge kicked the bucket.

But profligate waste

and spending with haste:

She ordered the spendthriftest Congress to chuck it!

Joking aside, the Pope probably meant spiritual walls and bridges, but by saying it right near the U.S. Mexican border it is easy to assume he meant a literal border. If so, where is the literal bridge?



Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump worth ten points. He blew it all on skipping the debate in Iowa. A Limerick.

When Palin endorsed, her act bumped Trump up ten.

With Kelley the Trump-killer in it again,

he refused to debate,

lost it all, sealed his fate.

A second place loser, all pain and no gain.

Donald Trump was solidly in second place in Iowa, about 5 points behind Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio was way behind. Then, on Jan 19 Sarah Palin endorsed him, an endorsement worth at least ten percentage points. See graph:Iowa-Republicans-graphThen Donald Trump refused to debate right before the Iowa caucus unless Megyn Kelly was removed as a moderator. Unlike CNN, which caved in to Trump’s demands, Fox News stood their ground and refused to cave in, “on journalistic grounds.” print2The media should never cave in to political pressure. Having skipped the debate, Cruz and Rubio had the leadership fight to themselves, and could shine, all at the expense of Trump. The chart to the left shows the high water mark for Donald Trump.

Between the debate and the Iowa caucus Trump lost all the ground he gained from the Palin endorsement. Ted Cruz held his ground, but the big gainer was Rubio.

It is now a three way race, and this will very likely lead to a brokered convention.

All bets ate off.

I can understand Sarah Palin’s initial endorsement of Donald Trump, with his broad crossover appeal to disenchanted people, then having a chance to win the primaries outright. With his refusal to debate we are almost ensured a brokered convention. Personally I prefer Sarah Palin to enter the race on her own, making it a brokered convention, containing a majority of true conservative delegates.





Sarah Palin on the stump for Trump. A Limerick.

The Lady and Trump on the stump

help Donald get over the hump.

Sarah Palin in Ames

added fuel to the flames.

The burn on the stump is with Trump.

Just imagine that! Donald Trump quiet for 20 minutes while Sarah Palin delivered her message!

Why did Sarah Palin endorse Trump over her previous favorite Ted Cruz?

Sarah Palin is against crony capitalism and Donald Trump epitomizes the crony capitalist.

The best exclamation is that pragmatism wins over purity.

Both Sarah and Donald want to shake up Washington.

Both Sarah and Donald speak their mind and are not afraid to tackle politically incorrect subjects.

And they both agree the most important issue facing us today is the epic battle against Islamic extremism, Jihadic terrorism threatening our very existence.

Way to go!

Verse 77 of the Obama Impeachment song. Obama wept.

Obama wept.

America is forced to weep over Obama’s releasing violent criminals into our communities – like the 121 illegal aliens who committed murders after they were released from custody by the Obama administration instead of being deported. And that doesn’t take into account the others we don’t know about.

The whole world weeps waiting for American leadership in these troubled times as Islamic savages commit genocide against the Christians of the Middle East and terrorize innocent people in cities across the globe.

Meanwhile, Obama wept as he blamed law-abiding patriots for the nation’s insecurity and sought to strip them of the Constitutional rights that generations of Americans shed blood to protect.

Obama wept, while we all continue to weep for our country and the civilized world. (Breitbart)


This brings us to verse 77 of the Obama Impeachment song (as if sung by President Barack Hussein Obama to the tune of “Please release me, let me go”)

Gun control: It’s true, I wept.

I proved myself to be inept.

Not a promise that I kept.

In crises I golfed or overslept!

Here is the complete impeachment song:
