Sarah Palin: We wouldn't stand for Scott Brown in Alaska

Update at 2:52

In an interview Wednesday, Sarah Palin told Fox Business that while it makes sense that Massachusetts might "put up with Scott Brown," the new Republican star senator wouldn't last in Alaska.

"By the way, is Scott Brown on notice? I mean, he's gone along with the Pelosi-Reid message for the past couple of votes," the anchor asked.

Palin nodded. "Well, you know, take the consideration, though, that's Massachusetts, and perhaps they're not going to look for such a hardcore constitutional conservative there, and they're gonna put up with Scott Brown and some of the antics there," she said.

In her state, she went on, those "antics" wouldn't last.

"But up here in Alaska, and so many places across the U.S., where we have a pioneering, independent spirit, and we have an expectation that our representatives in D.C. will respect the will of the people and the intelligence of the people -- well, up here, we wouldn't stand for that."

While his victory was cheered by tea party activists, Brown has upset conservatives with some votes, and he's been helping more moderate candidates.

UPDATE: Scott Brown's spokeswoman has responded. "Senator Brown's votes are based on what's in the best interests of Massachusetts and he has made his priorities job creation, controlling spending, and reducing the deficit," Gail Gitcho said in a statement. "All Republicans can agree on that."

Why do most of the Palin haters write in the same vein and repeat their messages? Could it be that the same person keeps writing under different userids? Whether it is one or several...they show their immaturity and lack of intelligence when they decry her statements and evidently have no problem with the most corrupt, inept, immature and anti-American president and administration we have ever had...Sarah will soon be forgotten...but this evil president and his antics will be in the history books forever....

It isn't surprising that so many of these
bloggers have nothing but hatred for Sarah
Palin. Afterall, these are the same people
who voted for the inexperienced and ill-prepared politician who now resides in the White House (when he's not on vacation!).
These haters are really scared of Palin.
Not because she has a chance of getting
elected to a federal office, but because
she is capable of gathering support for
those candidates who do have a chance of
changing this country--and for the better,
not in the Obama fashion.

So the former Gov. Palin...the first sitting Gov. to resign from office for reasons of health or legal issues...does not even know that Alaska has received from the federal government $6.00 for every $1.00 collected in federal taxes.

That is the highest pay back of any state. That money has been the result of the ability of the state's Senators influence in Washington...not the ex Gov. political skills. Without this money, Alaska would be in very difficult budget problems...and with an new Senator they will not have the senority they have now and will be at the botton of the list of power brokers in Washington..

Good move Sarah...your state will be in trouble next year...all because of your grab for more power.

One of the many things Palin has never learned is that every state is different from the other...in her little world of experience she does not understand that things are different in the "lower 48" than in Alaska...and not every Repub is best served by what she thinks....

So Paleo Palin has fallen out with two men she was once close to, Scott Brown and Levi Johnson. Given that both men have achieved notoriety by posing nude in magazine spreads it appears that this "family values" mama grizzly has foraged in the woods with some pretty bizarre bears. Now she has "refudiated" them. What a looney circus she is part of.
How can anyone take her seriously?

Tisfortwit does not know that the federal government owns most of the resources of Alaska. Alaska came into the Union with the tactic understanding that the Feds would eventually deed over this to the people of the state. That hasn't happened and so the Greens have put more of those resources out of bounds. Palin may not have a sophisticated grasp of many issues, but she knows quite a bit about energy issues, and knows damn well that Alaska remains a quasi-territory.

Palin simply said that someone like Brown, even someone like Murkowski is unacceptable to Alaskans. Either Brown or Murkowski
will inevitably tailor their actions to suit their supporters, few of whom are conservatives.

Alaskans pretending to be independent. That's rich.

They take in thousands of dollars per person, in federal government spending, tax away at the oil companies such that they pay no state taxes, and get a fat oil welfare check per person, and something like 1 in 3 works for the Federal government to boot.

If Alaskans took Palidiots direction to toss their senior senator perhaps the next congress can be persuaded to let them fly on their independent little wings. There's a little savings for those defficit hawks.

Palin is quoted as talking about the pioneering independent spirit of the people of Alaska. Just remember, that per capita, that state received a lion's share of porkbarrel funding from the Federal Government. Now just how independent is that? alesterp [first posting above] gets it right. She's getting far too much attention for what she's worth. Like the Energizer Bunny, she keeps on running around and making noise.

Sarah Palin is far from consistent in her endorsements and standards for candidates. She has endorsed Carly Fiorina, hardly a conservative but probably the right fit for California. The real hypocrisy of this statement was when she came to Georgia, a conservative, REDSTATE and endorsed a so called "moderate" to the detriment of 6 other great conservative candidates for governor. Sarah, get your message straight.... (www.oneconservativevoice.wordpress.com)

I should have also mentioned that grizzlies inhabit parts of Canada, the USA, and Mexico. This raises some important questions about The Mamma Grizzly in Chief.

1. Has anyone seen her birth certificate?

2. Is it possible she crossed the border illegally?

Posted by: exco | August 27, 2010 12:41 AM | Report abuse

Nature has a lot to teach us about Mamma Grizzlies. For example, bear experts will tell you that it is important to minimize contact between grizzlies and people. If a grizzly become adapted to human activities it can become a NUISANCE. Once that happens, it is almost impossible to make the nuisance go away. Park rangers have tried rubber bullets, foul-tasting chemicals, frightening sound, and other tactics to no avail.

The only humane tactic that works is to capture the nuisance and take it back to its natural habitat.

U think the news media should take a pledge: no more Palin, Linsey, Tebow and Tiger Woods. If a sports story, make it about the sport, not the personal problems. If you spent more time following the real stories, Florida would not have Scott in a race for governor. And the Congress should quit having stupid hearings such as sports steroid use and whether Scotland - another country, last I looked- should have released the Lockerby bomber. Not our business, no matter how many Americans were on board.

Well Petras if that was actually what Palin was inferring then she might have a point and her statement might be considered accurate by SOME. However that's not what she said.

---------------------------------

Actually, that is pretty much what Palin said, that Brown might survive in Massachusetts, but wouldn't cut it in Alaska. She did add a bit of cutting language by calling his votes "antics," but her statement correctly observed that voters in Massachusetts approve of Brown's votes.

If anything, Palin ripped on the people of Massachusetts for approving of Brown's votes. The jab isn't so much at Brown himself, who is obviously just voting in ways that will earn him reelection, as at the values of Massachusetts folks who support Brown. In Palin's mind, everybody everywhere should think like people in Alaska. They don't, and this is where the inference of Palin's comment is absurd, but she was correct in her political analysis of why Brown votes the way he does.

Really, though, Palin was led into this comment by the reporter. Describing Brown as "on notice" and observing that he was going down the Pelosi-Reid path is pretty partisan language for a reporter, and Palin obliged by giving the comment that the reporter was fishing for.

Politics is local, especially in these upcoming elections. Sarah Palin might be saying what a lot of Tea Party activists agree about Scott Brown, but I doubt that his constituents would say the same thing.

But this is my question to Sarah Palin: why is it a problem that a member of one party is willing to vote with the members of another? Real progress in government can't be made without that kind of collaboration; right now we've seen a lot of change only because the Democrats have such a large majority in Congress, but as that majority starts to break down, both sides will need members of the other party to be willing to work with them to make progress.

The woman is an opportunist if ever there was one and has shown herself to be incompetent and is, apparently, incapable of completing anything she starts as evidenced by her ditching the Governorship of Alaska in mid term. She claims to be a "Constitutionalist" but is unable to cite any of it's amendments correctly. She is a fraud and a cheat, writing "crib" notes on her hand like a child and blames others for her own short comings. WHY will she not stay home and care for her special needs child? She isn't even a decent role model for her other children. STOP giving her airtime. We are SICK of Sarah Palin and sick of seeing her quoted as if she actually had something of any import to share. Her toxicity has infected the, already ailing, regressive Republican Party of NO! and can only do them greater harm in the long run.

Too bad we can't say the same for Ms. Palin who attended 6 different colleges before she got a degree and was so stupid as to fly home while in labor - just to have her baby in Alaska...OR, was it really her kid??????

We shall see just how far right this country really is. Brown is actually putting some thought into his positions, something the bulk of the current GOP members does not do. They, along with Palin, are more concerned with their own interests, rather than that of the Country. Brown sees the bigger picture, just as the GOP once did years ago. Where did all of the good Republicans go?

I cannot believe that the Post and other reputable news agencies cover Palin and think that intellegent readers would have any interest in what an uninformed mouth piece for the right would have to say. You should really stop with the Palin tracker and the stories on her. She had no influence on the primaries. There were other issues on the ballots. Please, stop covering this fool from Alaska.

Posted by: ffb1964 | August 26, 2010 6:48 PM | Report abuse

Here is how I see it. It is unfortunate that the media and the Post in particular seem to think that a topic that involves Palin is not only newsworthy but worthy of vast exposure. The real question that needs to be answered, and I have not seen, is why and how the media is able to determine just how much Palin's endorsement had anything to do with any of those she has endorsed. They, the media, are speculating as opposed to speaking factually as they have not reached out to the voters of these recent elections to determine just what the reasoning was for their vote. Without that concrete and factual data, the press needs to back off on portraying these election results as a ringing endorsement to Palin's so called support. I, and many others, feel that her endorsement has little if any sway except to the fringe hard core right that is in the minority to say the least. Anyone that has followed her from the day that she was presented at the Republican National Convention knows without a doubt that this woman does not stand for anything beyond stupid. To this day I am still shocked that there are Americans who could have thought for even a minute that she was capable of running a state let alone a country. I don't need someone with her resume to tell me that I am proud and faithfull American who believes in God and country. There are far more newsworthy issues of the day that we need to be informed about than having to have Palin shoved down our throats on a daily basis talking about patriotism. Until the media, and in particular the Post, provide us the public, with a means to authenticate just who won an election based on her endorsement, this reader will pass over all of the hype and speculation, becasue that is all it is. The sad part of this is that there are those who read it, see it and speak it, that take it as gospel and fail to question the validity.
The bottom line is that we, be Republican or Democrat, Independant or just an out and out true blooded patriotic American, are over Palin. If you, the media, wish to continue to shove her in our face, at least have the respect for our intellegence to place her in the comic section where she belongs.

It' a big country, lady, and geography, sectional economics, and culture, all play a part in the diversity of opinions and needs. Just how many "hard core, constitutional' citizens are there, as she defines them?

As for the "pioneering spirit", Palin needs to review American history. Many people in Massachusetts and Virginia are descended from the FIRST pioneers and those early settlers in the 17th century faced challenges Alaskans can't imagine. And they didn't have all money from government to help them.

Maybe voters in other places don't have minds of their own and enjoy the reflexive "ditto-head" culture but Massachusetts voters don't fall in that category.

She's too stupid to notice but Brown represents Massachusetts not Alaska.

Palin does not like anyone with morals since she is minus morals minus brains. What she need to do is GO HOME AND TAKE CARE OF THOSE KIDS. She already have one loose child with a child out of wedlock. I guess the other one does not stand a chance. Guranteed, she will be pregnant before she graduate High School.

In order to transcend morals and scruples you have to first have some.

The entire country is not far-left or far-right but rather desires our politicians to be from the middle.

I applaud Scott Brown and wish that candidates like him win more frequently. In Illinois I shall vote for Mark Kirk because I believe he is from the middle of the political spectrum.
