Sarah Palin Responds to Accusations Surrounding Leaked Manuscript

ABC News’ Mary Bruce Reports:

Sarah Palin responded tonight to accusations surrounding a leaked manuscript by a former aide, in particular a claim that she has a second Facebook account that praises the posts on her official page. “Pay no attention to the fake accounts and their fake messages,” Palin posted on her (official) Facebook page tonight.

The accusations stem from the leaked unpublished manuscript of a book by Frank Bailey, one of Palin’s former aides from her time as governor. The manuscript, entitled “Blind Allegiance To Sarah Palin: A Memoir Of Our Tumultuous Years,” was first leaked by the Anchorage Daily News last Friday and is based on more than 60,000 emails that Bailey sent and received while working for the former vice presidential nominee.

The book includes Palin’s personal gmail address. When the blog Wonkette ran a Facebook search on that address, they found what appears to be a secret Palin account under the name “Lou Sarah,” Louise is Palin’s middle name.

Lou Sarah “likes” both Sarah and Bristol Palin as well as a photo gallery of Bristol on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.” In addition to posting comments on Bristol’s page, Lou Sarah also gave one of Sarah Palin’s posts an “amen.”

“There’s always buzz about fake Sarah Palin Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please know that this is my only authentic Facebook account and SarahPalinUSA is my only authentic Twitter account,” the real Sarah Palin posted tonight.

    Palin’s house of cards is tumbling down and it’s about time. This vile woman and her drama, trashy family and lack of ethics or intelligence has worn all of us down. I’ve never felt such disqust for the republican party as I do today. I’ve never witnessed such lunacy, corruption or insanity as we’re seeing today. It really is an assault on America from the mouths of creeps like beck, limbaugh, O’reilly and palin. That guy in Wisconsin needs to be removed from office and sent packing. What the hell is going on with our country today?? I believe the American public has had enough. We’re tired of them. We’re tired of the rants from them and we’re tired of the attacks on our president and first lady. Enough is enough. Take your “end of days” rants and threats and insanity and go away. And take that guy from Wisconsin with you .

        “The pushback has begun.” Your words in God’s ear! I fervently hope you are correct, but I am still a pessimist, and do not think it will happen – not after they arrest a few people or harass them.

      Sharon –
      When I read your post I just had to chuckle – not laughing at you. It was just that you voiced all of the many frustrations that have been bouncing around in my mind today. We are all tired – very tired. Not only with the Palin Pack, but all of the other insanity we hear about daily. Just read something on HP about an AG from Indiana who tweeted that live ammo should be used on the demonstrators in Wis. Yes, we know there are nuts out there, but now they seem to be running the asylum.

    Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
    The bots are providing a great show defending her and as all of this crumbles down, it is going to be really amusing watching their reactions.
    The funniest thing about all this is that now she has to lie about things that don’t need to be lied about. Who cares if she has a “private” FB account? Other than the fact that her stupid is showing once again for her not making it private and for the preteen way she writes, there is no shame in having that account.

      Right. There is no shame in having the account. The shame is in the deceitful and narcissistic way she promotes herself under an assumed name. How pathetic is it to make a fake account and then write posts praising yourself? She raises narcissism to an art form. Anyone who has looked at that Facebook page knows that it belongs to her. It isn’t even questionable. What a putz.

      Olivia, it is her M.O. – she has a pathological need to lie about the oddest things, unnecessary and trivial. It would be funny if she weren’t so influential and dangerous.

      She makes me think about that scorpion that stings its rescuer in the river because she can’t fight her nature – even with the extraordinary opportunity for the betterment of herself and others.

    The only fault I give to Mr. Bailey is he should have gotten the information out a long time ago then maybe she would be off the radar now. Now you got offsprings Palin has produced such as the idiot for Minn. Michele Bachmann. It’s bad enough to have one crazy now we have to put up with 2 crazies. This poor country can only stand so much. Someone please get these cancers off the stage. Thank you.

    The real Sarah Palin is a bored and lazy housewife in Wasilla with overreaching goals but equipped with mediocre skills.

    With audacity, she became a Chimaera, evolving images that appealed to different conservative, libertarian and religious sects searching for a heady rock star to represent an oppressive populace. In order to step on the rights of others in the name of their subjective and arbitrary moral high ground, they needed naughty monkey pumps for saleability.

    The last thing Sarah ever wants to be is average (it is a dirty word in her head) so she co-opted ‘values’ that she doesn’t give a fuck about, because it was the easiest way to access the corridors of power. Sheep don’t look for qualifications, affirmation, consistency or trust – they look for mainstream appeal so they can Trojan Horse their agenda. Sarah could deliver, even though she didn’t. Her record is haphazard, a clumsy mess. Look at one of her emails, she wanted DOT to know that she didn’t support a law even though she filmed a freakin PSA on it.

    For those that laugh at us for sweating the small stuff, you add it all up, as we’ll find in those 60,000 Bailey emails, in the other emails to be released next month or April – it will only affirm what most of us not too slow on the uptake saw – a completely unqualified ‘pretty woman’ who fell backasswards into legitimate roles she was neither equipped to handle or had the fortitude to see through.

    It will be comforting to know when she is finally relegated to a laughable footnote in the annals of political and popular history rather than a threat to our freedoms.

      We used to be a very progressive state and for the most part we still are. Batshit’s district is the epicenter of right wing nuts in the state. They gerrymandered that district to encompass as many tinfoil hats as they could. Another problem is carpetbaggers. There have been many right wingers moving in from other states for the purpose of infiltrating the state. Congressman John Kline is one and I believe Batshit is another. There were several religious right types who came up from the south and got elected into the state legislature. Many of them have been booted out because their ethics didn’t match their religious fervor but a few remain. There are now a bunch of teabaggers that got elected and are trying to f*ck everything up. But the same folks who elected the baggers somehow elected Mark Dayton also. So we have a great Democratic governor with a big veto pen. I hope he can squash them down and I am convinced that the next election will dump a lot of the teabaggers. Unfortunately, both Kline and Batshit have megabucks pouring into their coffers and will probably continue to purchase their reelections.

    The truth probably is that Sarah doesn’t have much to do with her own “official,” “authentic” Facebook and Twitter accounts. Her handlers own her name at this point (and maybe even were the ones who tried to copyright, perhaps even against Sarah herself).

    Palin is a symptom of the right. Look at Wisconsin and Walker. The right have their agenda and are determined to inflict it on us all and d… the facts. They lie to gain power then rule with impunity. Getting rid of Sarah is a very good thing but we have along way to go to gain sanity in our politics.

        I don’t have the thread links, but I had copied the text of the comments:

        ===================================================
        “All of us who have kids that went to school with Sarah’s kids know to be absolute factual gospel truth: Sarah Palin had a tubal ligation after her last baby (Piper) was born.

        “She then took several days off work- more than she took when she “had” Trig. She bitched at Todd afterward saying HE should have gotten the snip since it was so much easier for men.”

        “Trig may actually have BEEN born at 7.5 months….but he wasn’t born in April ’08, and he sure as HELL did not issue forth from the tied, cut, and burned fallopian tubes of Sarah Louise Heath Palin.”

        —————
        My two were in the same school as two of Sarah’s at the same time. She volunteered for revolving carpool and bailed every single time. She called one morning saying she’d be unable to drive her planned day the next morning because she’d had “a tubal”. I remember her saying it in that whiny fake accent she used to elicit sympathy: “Well, I’ve had a two-bull”. I just rolled my eyes and got someone to fill in.

        Two weeks after that when her next shift came up, she called again and this time it had gone from “a two-bull” to “my surgery”. “I’m sorry, I can’t make it ’cause yaknow I had surgery recently…”

        I remember some of the other moms and I joked that when her NEXT shift came up, she would be calling saying “I can’t drive due to the recent double AMPUTATION of my tubes…”

        As for why I won’t go on the record…and I think the other people in my position feel the same way: basically, it’s fear.

        We have all seen someone become unemployable and/or pariah in their community because they “crossed” one of the Palins. Most of us still have one or more kids still in school or college, and we all know Sarah goes for the jugular…which for most of us, is our kids. I know it seems unlikely that Palin would still have power given that she quit, but trust me when I say the “long arm of Palin” is still reaching very far in Wasilla these days.

        I do hope Sarah’s insane fake pregnancy will be revealed in national media soon. But I have a hard time believing that my going on the record about her tubal will make a difference. She would instantly brand me a “wee wee’d up” librul who just wanted to spread an ugly rumor. She would play the victim and claim I was “attacking her special needs baby”. (do you notice how she keeps calling three year old Trig a “baby”? It’s to foster the “young mother with sweet babe in arms” image. She did the same thing with Piper, saying “my baby is sick” or “I have to go, my baby needs me” when Piper was four years old. She even let Piper have bottles and sippies well past the appropriate age, in pursuit of this “image”)
        Anyway, she would say I was lying just to try and make her look bad. She would sanctimoniously sneer “prove it! Put up or shut up!” knowing that only her medical records would prove what I was saying.

        Most of us in the valley are scared for CBJ, as she knows EVERYTHING…and Sarah doesn’t like loose ends. But if CBJ ever DID decide to pitch her license to the wind and tell the truth about Sarah, Trig, etc…Sarah will be done. Even the most hardcore, ironclad, koolaid-dipped bot will abandon her.

        ————–
        I am the person who posted about Sarah talking her “tubal” to death. There’s one other detail I’d like to add: Sarah talked about breastfeeding and pumping ALL the time, but I don’t think she nursed any of her kids for long, if at all. She bought giant tubs of Enfamil and I remember Piper smelling of that foul stinky formula (nutrammigan? I’m sure I spelled that wrong)
        Anyway, my point is that Sarah has been trying to foster a certain image long before she hit the national stage. I really do think she has a mental disorder. I cannot adequately describe the way she used to go on and on and on about how breastfeeding was so rewarding, it was the most amazing job a woman could do, my nipples are sooo sore but it’s worth it because I’m providing my child with the best…blah blah, etc etc. And she’d have a tub of formula RIGHT there in the diaper bag!

        Not only that, she had the nerve to chastise other moms who formula fed. THAT is the Sarah we all know- “let me tell you what a bad mother you are for formula feeding while I sit here and give my baby a bottle of formula”.

        I remember once with Piper she actually said something like “I hope Pipe takes the bottle I pumped…she’s been my pickiest about wanting her milk straight from the tap!”

        Meanwhile, as she takes the bottle out, Piper goes after that thing like a grizzly after a gimpy salmon…LOL. She could hold it herself and everything.

        Just another example of how it is vs. how Sarah SAYS it is. And the two shall never meet on common ground.

        —-
        I am the person who posted about Sarah’s tubal. (Gryph, you were saying you wanted ME to email you, or the person who quoted my post..?)

        Ok I’d like to address a couple of points. For the person who asks how I sleep at night: how DARE you presume to know what it’s like to be in this position. You have NO CLUE how far Sarah still reaches in the valley. Look how many of us are from Wasilla (based on Gryphen’s logger counter thing) yet so few speak up about living here because everyone suddenly thinks we “hold the key” to finishing Sarah Palin.

        But hear this, friends…and Gryph can back me on this..MANY of us HAVE reached out to journalists or authors about things we know…and they are not, repeat NOT interested.

        Instead of questioning US on our ethics or devotion to America…try to think of the view from here: we’ve seen Gryphen’s “two babies” post…and we all thought….WHEW. It’ll be over now. The media simply can’t ignore THAT..

        And we see others who have tried to speak up about Sarah suddenly seem to have a LOT of “bad luck”.

        Gryphen knows for a fact that Sarah Palin is infertile via her own choosing- a tubal legation and burn. And that she has been that way for far longer than Trig has been a gleam in anyone’s eye.

        If GRYPHEN knows it and hasn’t been able to get this bombshell news picked up by the right people…then why would I- a stay at home mom with NO media connections- risk my family’s well being?

        I’m just saying…think about us before judging us so harshly.

    In my opinion she’s doing what she can to save face, distract and stir up trouble, anything to take the focus off this book and the Todd sex scandal.

    She’s talking about Todd/Irondog, why the WH isn’t responding to Lybia crisis but is about the earth quake, and throws in the off the cuff, “nevermind” the fake FB, when it’s obvious it’s hers. Too funny Sarah.

    Bet ya she’s got RAM or someone working on an opinion piece. That is if RAM is still on board the whack train. It would be lovely to see her blinders come off!

    The “Lou Sarah” Facebook page seems authentic to me. If it was a fake, I would think that it would be much more over-the-top.

    Instead, we see things that a private Sarah Palin would probably say to a daughter, apparent inside knowledge of the Dancing With The Stars programming, etc.

    Funny that she would choose this one thing to take notice of. If it was me, I’d probably have addressed the accusation about the judge appointment, not the Facebook site. But then Sarah seems pretty obsessed with Facebook, Twitter, Email, etc., so maybe it really is the most important thing to her.

      You would think the so-called “reporter” would point that out, wouldn’t you?

      This “story” is the INVERSE of a story, because Bailey’s book has nothing to do with whether Sarah had a second FB page.

      Sarah addressed NOTHING in Bailey’s book. Zippo.

      In fact, the “journalist” is very careful in wording it that she has responded to “accusations SURROUNDING a leaked manuscript”, not accusations made IN the manuscript.

      The deception is intentional, near universal, and organized. THAT, my friends, is the scary part, more than Sarah’s finger on the red button, imo.

    I could only hope that I’m a thorn in Sarah and Todd’s side, even to this day. In the book it says it sooooo much better!!
