Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: How Palin Is Focused on Riches, Not Governing

According to Palin insider Frank Bailey, the former Alaska governor cares little about governance and is instead consumed with image, vindictiveness, and reaping worldly rewards

Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: An Insider Exposes How Palin Is Focused on Riches, Not Governing

 

Despite being filled with regret for his own actions while serving for nearly four years under candidate and then half-governor Sarah Palin, Frank Bailey came to fear that his former boss remained a voice in American politics. In Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin, former insider and my coauthor Frank Bailey said of his ideals when we first met, “I am still a Fox News Conservative.” Frank went on to explain that Sarah Palin, despite her carefully managed image and “word salad” lip service to conservative ideals, cared little for the smaller government and social values that attracted him to her candidacy in 2005.

She was (and he admits guilt in getting sucked in, and participating wholeheartedly) consumed not with governance, but with image, vindictiveness, and ultimately reaping worldly rewards. A frequently used Palin password from before her run for governor, “Jabez”, provided a subtle clue as to her ultimate goal. From Chronicles 4:10: Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, ‘Oh that Thou would bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast [territory], and that Thine hand might be with me, and that Thou would keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me!’ And God granted him that which he requested.”

From the very beginning, Sarah had a plan that God would answer her Jabez-like prayers. And while none of us (Frank, me, and third co-author Jeanne Devon) believe God played any part, amazingly her dream for riches came true; the three of us decided that she’d have been wiser to pray for happiness.

Well documented in Blind Allegiance, Sarah came to relate to yet another Biblical figure, Queen Esther, going so far as to borrow the one-time savior of the Jewish people’s most famous line on several occasions: “If I die, I die.” In our book, we document several emails where the governor (who said repeatedly, “I hate this damn job”) marveled at how God chose her, above all others, for divine purpose. And while Frank was blindly allegiant to a woman he once truly believed was Ronald Reagan in a dress, Sarah was no less blind in her own faith in herself.  She became convinced that she had Reagan’s so-called steely spine. She swore publicly that her skin was rhino thick, even to the point of lecturing Hilary Clinton to buck up and adopt Sarah’s ability to take the heat in the political kitchen. Frank and the others who knew the backbone filleted, thin-skinned truth, choked at the words despite continuing to believe in her mission. Not everyone in this world, they rationalized, is self-aware. If this were her only fault, they could live with that.

Unfortunately, this was the least of the character flaws that made her, in Frank’s words, “…not only ill-suited to head a political party or occupy national office, but would lead to a disaster of, well, biblical proportions.”

Sarah was, at best, an Old Testament Christian (an oxymoron since Christianity began with the birth of Christ and the creation of the New Testament). And she was a revisionist at that. An eye for an eye became two eyes for an eye.

    This guy is an effing joke. He, of his own accord, put Palin on a mile high pedestal, and now he is coming to terms with his own foolishness…for a price. He tried to cash in by approaching the Palin team about a positive book about Palin, and he was rejected. He then teams up with two anti-Palinites to write an *gasp* expose about Palin. But, by throwing himself on the ground in his puddle of guilt tears over being sullied in the mud pit of politics, he is hoping we don’t notice that he’s trying to make a sweet buck off of Palin’s name.

    Oh my, Sarah let someone else sign a bottle of wine for a charity event. That’s it, you all are right: she’s an evil witch who should never come within shouting distance of our children and public office. The shame, oh the shame of such an indiscretion………For that this bozo Bailey is flagellating himself in public….for a nice profit? Yeah okay. Maybe he and Levi can team up on the next blockbuster.

    One of the most revealing sarah quotes from BA (inside front dust jacket): ¨Ï´ll get fired before you will – and some of my ´mismanagement´ manifestations may catch up with me a lot sooner than I´d hoped.¨

    Gotcha! moment brought to you by sarah herself.

    LOL!

    Anyone read about how Sarah literally was on her way to attack me when in that moment all of the HELL she created with ABUSING POWER came out!? This woman is an absolute ignoramus and is dangerous when considering how close she wants to be to political power! Actually another book.. ‘Game Change’ portrays Palin as a unstable ignoramus!

    Mallard – No one really cares that much about the bottle of wine except that it is another instance of her laziness and lying in a long list of such instances. Lying and deception are a pattern with Palin. How about commenting on her illegal activities re: the RGA campaign commercial? How about commenting on how she had people write pro-Palin letters to the editors and got supporters to sign their names and lie about writing them? How about commenting on how she directed state employees to stack polls in her favor on State time? How about Todd and Sarah trying to get their former brother-in-law fired. Frank admits his part, when are Todd and Sarah going to admit theirs. Why would Bailey have a vendetta against Wooten? He wouldn’t, he was working on behalf of The Palins. How do you feel about State tax dollars going to pay salaries for people to spend time trying to settle old scores. That doesn’t seem very fiscally conservative. Shouldn’t they have been working on state business?

    How about commenting on Sarah using her child and making up a lemonade stand to get back at a private citizen who complained about tour bus traffic? Bringing her children into an issue that didn’t involve them to play the victim and to give an excuse to leave Juneau and move the capital. The man complained about tour bus traffic and not the noise of the Palin children playing. Would you want your governor singling you out to be the target of threats and accusations against your character because you complained about traffic patterns. This situation has rightly resulted in a lawsuit against Palin. Imagine what she’d do if she had the power of the Presidency.

    Stop trying to deflect by sighting trivial things. The entire story tells a lot more than a snapshot. I recommend you and everyone else read the whole book and look at the pattern of deceit, laziness and vindictiveness over years and make an educated assessment of Palin’s ability to be President. Frank Bailey is no saint, but at least he can admit he was wrong.

      Welcome, thank you for your comment!
      To an Alaskan citizen these are the things of vindictive, unstable and hateful behavior that we’ve been speaking of!

      GotaLife…..Mallard is as full of it as Palin. The quackier quack is probably a family member or paid “flying monkey”. As has been exposed in these new books, staff and family regularly post comments to blogs, newspapers or voting on online polls to skew results. I have come to the conclusion that quackers should be ignored. As another blog puts it….”don’t feed the trolls, it goes directly to their thighs”…lol …and Mallard is the epitome of a troll.

    Thanks for the welcome! I read regularly, but that was my first comment. I just hate how the bots pick one trivial detail and try to make us look stupid while ignoring all the important and proven facts. The media does the same thing. Thanks for being a brave Alaskan who continues to shine a light on the former 1/2 term governor. Those of us in the lower 48 cannot thank you enough!

    Syrin, What’s your take on this video of Piper? It reminds me of Todd and that teacher who had the WGE sign when he tried to intimidate her. I don’t see how those kids can stand a chance being parented by them. This “tour” of hers could easily get out of hand, imo.

    To all you hens here: Bailey is the one who picked out the instance with the wine that he felt was important enough to single out in the epilogue of his book. Take it up with him if you feel it is not that big a deal. I don’t.

    I have trouble with all this hatred you all are spewing towards Palin because you all seem to side with the liberals an awful lot. I don’t read much support for conservatives or the GOP on this blog. And I am not going to give much credence to books that from the start are intended hit jobs on Palin, especially this one by Bailey. His co-authors are known anti-Palinites. When someone is willing to write an objective biography of Sarah Palin, without agenda left or right, and discusses the whole picture of her accomplishments, her beliefs, her failings, then I will weigh the results of that book. Then I will decide if Palin is or is not what you all claim she is.

    With that being said, I will offer this. Her current “One Nation” bus tour is a bit odd, and I am not sure what it is she is accomplishing at this point. However, because I don’t understand what she is doing, I am not going to immediately veer to the left and say that she is stupid or an idiot. In time it may be clear that there is a method to her seeming madness.

    Here’s another point for you biddies to consider. Sarah Palin is not stupid. Anyone who has advanced through the ranks of public office up to governor is not stupid. Anyone who has written two books is not stupid. Anyone who has been vetted and selected to run for the Vice President of the United States is not stupid. Anyone who time after time can draw a crowd at the drop of a hat is not stupid. Anyone who has amassed a few million dollars is not stupid.

    There are plenty of other adjectives you could toss around, like she’s crazy, or nuts or Satan’s spawn if you are so inclined. But to call Sarah Palin stupid is…well, pretty stupid.

      Stupid? “Naaaah.” (I hated it when she used that in her resignation speech. “Nah!”) Cunning. Selectively smart. Wily. Insidious. I like these last four words for her.

      If you think she is smart because she wrote two books, then you must also think that Louis L’Amour should have been POTUS in the ’80’s, and that we should make J.K. Rowling the next governor of California.
