Duel Rallies in Alaska: Sarah is a Disgrace

In Wasilla on Saturday, some 300 conservatives gathered to remember the 9/11 attacks. GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller was getting the attention. But then Sarah Palin showed up.

The crowd met at the Menard Sports Center, a hockey and soccer facility championed by Palin when she was mayor of Wasilla. It was organized by the Wasilla-based Conservative Patriots Group to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11.

At the start of the event, Miller, the Tea Party-backed Republican who recently bested U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the GOP primary thanks in part to Palin’s endorsement, worked the room, pressing the flesh and chatting up the crowd.

As Sarah Palin made what you think was a surprise appearance at a Sept. 11 rally in Wasilla, another rally was in the works protesting her upcoming appearance with Fox’s Glenn Beck Saturday night in Anchorage.

The sign-waving crowd of about 100 people in downtown Anchorage waved at motorists to the return honks of support and, on occasion, a middle finger extended in their direction.

At about noon Saturday, rally organizer and longtime Alaska activist Desa Jacobsen had the crowd gather around the veterans memorial on the Anchorage Park Strip. She asked for two minutes of silence to honor those who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Then she urged the crowd of about a hundred to sign a “blue ticket” to send Glenn Beck out of town — reminiscent of how Alaska in its early history exiled undesirables.

“Don’t be afraid to show yourself when you are standing up against hate and fear,” she told the crowd.

    FYI, She was recalled as mayor, but at the 11th hour they let her stay and hire a City Manager to do HER job. And subsequently the long term economics for Wasilla are like Alaska.. Wasilla had NO debt before Palin. She left it in 25 millon dollars of debt with her incompetence and unethical behavior. Wasilla has to continue to pay a city manager who makes 70,ooo.oo to do the job of a mayor of 7,000 people.

    Palin’s personal ethics problems and lack of integrity along with a
    incompetent record as played out in headlines when she was just a bored housewife with babies…

    The alarm bells rang long ago! They’re still ringin

    “I’m the mayor, I can do whatever I want until the courts tell me I
    can’t.'” –Sarah Palin, as quoted by former City Council Member Nick
    Carney, after he raised objections about the $50,000 she spent
    renovating the mayor’s office without approval of the city council

    A Frontiersman editorial wrote, “Palin promised to change the status
    quo, but at every turn we find hints of cronyism and
    political maneuvering. We see a woman who has long-since surrendered
    her ideals to a political machine.” [Frontiersman editorial, 2/7/97]
