    A poll was needed to arrive at these conclusions?!?

      Interestingly the pollster here Dave Dittman is a long time Palin sycophant. The poll makes apparent to ALL the idea that Palin, Miller are part of the same loony legacy of incompetence, unethical behavior and self promotion.

    Of course Alaskans are embarrassed by sarah and Miller. So are Americans in the lower 48. Why? Because we believe in our country, we believe in our government, and we support both.

    I’m not embarrassed by them, I’m embarrassed for them, and for anyone who ever supported either of them. Okay, wait, that would be me. I once supported Palin, but never Miller. I was completely over Palin by the time Miller came along, so not supporting him was a no brainer.

      Well gosh all mighty what took you so long? You supported her until Miller ran. What the heck did you see in her the first place. After the election I would have thought anyone who had a brain would of seen how mean spirited she is and how she has divided the country by telling states who are real americans. I resent her coming from a state on the east coast with family members serving this great country in WWII, Korea, VN and Desert Storm saying we aren’t americans. To divide states and spread her hate to other politicians is down right nuts that you waited this long til Miller got in. You don’t get a pass from me because you supported this quitter. I know I sound mean and hateful but I wished you had seen through her allot earlier. I have a niece living in AK and she saw right through her. She said she only cares about Palin and what it can do for her. She didn’t buy the wink and a wave from the beginning and was reinforced after she quit her job. I wished you could have seen it then.

        In JulieB’s defense, a lot of normal Alaskans voted for Palin for governor, including my mother. She tends to vote Republican, but was unhappy with the corruption in the Republican Party up here, and she liked the idea that a female Republican was exposing the “Good Old Boys”.

        If my memory serves me right, I myself did not notice anything terribly odd or negative about Palin until 1) the amazing hidden pregnancy and Wild Ride (just thought it was weird that she was so secretive about being pregnant at such a late date, and the Wild Ride was just incredible bad judgement), and 2) Troopergate.

        I remember being surprised at how popular she was, because I would never have voted for her due to her statements that Creationism should be taught in schools on an equal basis to Evolution, her ties to the Right To Life Movement (sorry Syrin and others, but in my opinion, every woman should make her own choices), and the fact that she was inexperienced and didn’t ever seem to speak intelligently on the issues.

        I remember being floored when McCain chose her for VP, because she was just so obviously not qualified for the job.

        I didn’t start actively disliking the woman until the Presidential Campaign, when The Real Palin started showing her ugly side. Because basically, unless you’d been active in Wasilla society or politics prior to her Lt. Governor campaign, I think she did a pretty good job of keeping her true self hidden to the general Alaskan population. I think the legislature started figuring it out pretty quickly that first year, but the rest of us were in the dark, because her poll numbers were so high that none of our politicians could really say anything negative about her. They did start wearing those “Where’s Sarah?” buttons, but I don’t think it was that well known around the state.

        I mean, I have a cabin that looks right across the lake at her “compound” and though I’d heard of some of the trouble her kids were getting into, I didn’t know that she was a complete wacko.

        So please give JulieB a break, because Palin’s bizarre personality was not too widely known until she went “National”. Alaskans can be dumb sometimes, but we’re not THAT dumb.

        Wow! You just blew my hair completely back with that reply. I did see through Palin a lot sooner than Joe Miller’s entrance onto the scene. It quickly became apparent after she was picked for McCain’s running mate just how awful she is. Like a lot of people I know, I wanted to hear about what she and McCain were going to do for our country, and instead was dismayed to hear the same “blah, blah” rhetoric and hate speech time after time.

    I wish you Alaskans would stop letting the inmates out of the asylum to journey down to the lower 48 to wreck havoc on us. Very inconsiderate of you. I suspect you all party hearty when the loons leave and laugh uproarously at our expense. Shame on you.

      I wish the -48ers would quit buying what the likes of Miller and Palin are selling, including a self serving and false portrayal of the state of Alaska.

      Because guess what. They have both received much more contributions to their respective PACs from Outsiders than they have from Alaskans.

      Go to either one of their facebook pages and you’ll see very few “supporters” from Alaska…and you’ll find no one who can actually discuss the specifics of Alaskan politics.

      Mention ACES on either of their pages if you want to see how fast they’ll toss you.

    You would think after she see’s her poll numbers she would just melt away but no she still thinks she ‘s ” Diva Darling”. One thing that makes me feel just a little good is that diva can’t control us like she controlled everyone in Alaska. She ought to get rid of Toad and marry Trump, boy what a pair that would make.We don’t need Soap Opera’s on TV, this is one on going wack-o show.

      I am willing to bet this losing will run because she has a ego so big she just can’t pass it up. She needs to feed the beast and be damned with her family. Oh I hope they expose all her lies and she ends up in jail where she can hold her court there.

        She didn’t control everyone in Alaska. Far from it. She couldn’t have made the money that she has without the people of the -48 buying her image.

    it was pretty telling when RAM tweeted all the major news outlets asking why they didn’t cover palin’s WI speech…haha…well ,there you go palin. MSM is no longer interested in you as many of us aren’t. And when your emails are released next month, when Bailey’s book comes out and Joe McGinnis releases his in Sept – omg! You will be back in the news but in the most comical way – all those people you’ve been attacking and all of your snarky remarks and lies will come home finally to bite you in the ass.

    And another thing – your daughter is going to be a guest of the Whitehouse! OUCH – that must hurt, huh?! Divide and conquer. I was not happy either but now I see the move as kind of brilliant afterall. Pres Obama will not respond to you no matter how hard you try to be noticed – and now after all your efforts you’re still being ignored but bristol has upstaged you just as bachman has. Oh my, Karma is a bitch!

      I am glad we have a calm president in office. Because I can’t image what it would be if there were a President McCain and VP Palin in office. OMG. What is going on around this country with republican governors is enough to scare anyone with a brain. When you start having governors taking peoples local government away there is something wrong with this picture. You have a governor in Maine that wants to dismantle the child labor laws so they can hire younger workers a lower wages. People need to wake up.

      I want to know why the Washington Post invited her.

    13% seems awfully high. Are you sure that’s accurate? LOL Just think, she’s gone from an 80%+ favorable rating (1st year in office) to 13%. That’ one helluva fall. She should be in ICU or the cemetary.

      There’s something that a lot of people don’t understand about the much touted approval rating that Palin supposedly had at one time during her stint as governor. In that particular poll, there were four choices: poor, fair, good, and excellent. This poll was taken very early into her time as gov., and anything except a “poor” rating was counted as favorable. Most of us knew very little about Palin at the time the poll was conducted, and the poll numbers during that time did not mean that we all loved her. It only meant that we were willing to give her a chance, especially after Frank Murkowski.

        I think you’re right. The choices of responses to the poll were limited but more importantly, Frank Murkowski made anyone else appear to be a step up. She was just the first one to step up to fill the void. Alaskans, from my perspective, were the first ones to buy her BS but were also the first ones to see she was in it for her own self promotion. The lower 48 seemed to be just a little behind the power curve.

    So out of 400 people only 52 have a highly favorable opinion of her. Didn’t know there were that many Palins and Heaths in AK.

    Bristol was actually approached by the Whitehouse to be on some kind of panel or something related to teen pregnancy. That’s the truth – that came out about a month ago and I was so pissed! I couldn’t understand WHY they’d even consider her for anything!? She mentioned on facebook or one of those sites that her mother was upset and her response to her moma grizzley was “oh well”. I didn’t hear anything more about that until this recent announcement about her attending this function but as a guest from another source – don’t know if it’s the Washington Post or whoever but I believe the WH has definite plans to draw bristol in regardless of how she’s showing up there. And palin is NOT happy as you may expect.

      Interesting. I really wish they ‘media’ would please ignore these people. You know why not just make an obscere teen mother , off of one of those teen mother shows as a panel guest. Why a Palin? They’re helping these people in creating a false narrative and build an audience inwhich they get paid big bucks to spew about what they do not know!

    I hadn’t heard of Bristol being approached by the White House; just that a speaking engagement that she was scheduled for at Washington University was canceled due to student protests. Does anyone have a link to her being asked to be on a White House panel?

    akbatwoman As far as a female Republican was exposing the “Good Old Boys”. Those “Good Old Boys” were in the prosess of being exposed. We know that she had absolutely NOTHING to do with it! Palin’s timing to take credit for other’s accomplishments, impecable!

      Oh I totally agree, and now that I’ve seen her in action I think that it’s just automatic for her to attack anyone who has the job that she wants, doesn’t matter if they’re actually corrupt or not, she’ll just make stuff up.

      She did expose Randy Ruedrich, but the hilarious part was that she was guilty of doing the exact same crime! (Campaigning with government property, while working for the government.)

      But she has absolutely no chance at the Presidency. Though I hope she spends all of her own money on trying for it. And perhaps Donald Trump will talk her into becoming his running mate, and then we’ll all be enormously entertained for a few weeks.

    As you’ll see by my link – Michelle Obama is courting bristol and palin is having a meltdown over it. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I was really pissed they’d even consider bristol a worthy voice to combat teen pregnancy for obvious reasons. But after I thought about it I believe the WH has a plan to draw bristol in and they absolutely knew palin’s head would explode. Can you imagine palin’s reaction to this?? Bristol has no loyalty – afterall she was raised by her mother and this new development will cause a huge fracture between palin and bristol. Pretty interesting move on the Obama’s side.
