Black Republican Answers Obama

I’ll bet you didn’t know these tidbits:  1) 32 Black Republicans ran for Congressional office in the 2010 primaries, 2) 14 Black Republicans are now contesting Democrats for Congressional seats in the 2010 general election.

There are 3 Black Republicans who are well-situated to win their races.  The candidate most assured of a seat is Tim Scott who is running for a House seat in South Carolina.  I appreciated this article from theLondon Daily Telegraph – that’s London, England.

Campaigning a few miles from Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the Civil War were fired in 1861, Tim Scott described last week how he was born into poverty and a broken home, much like Barack Obama…..

But the conclusions that Scott, 45, drew were very different from those of Obama. When he was 15, a man who ran a Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurant taught him “that there was a way to think my way out of the worst conditions”. Scott went on to became a small businessman and a proud “conservative Republican”.

Barring a cataclysmic upset, Scott will be elected to Congress on November 2nd. There, he will be a ferocious opponent of Obama, to whom he gives a withering “failing grade” for his presidency.

What I really love is the Telegraph’s commentary on Obama.  I had to do a double-take to make sure that the words weren’t a quote from Scott.  I’m so accustomed to the left-wing tripe from the American MSM, that this was a total shock.

Rather than ushering in a post-racial era, Obama’s election to the White House appears to have intensified racial divisions in America. This is not, as the Left asserts, because Right-wing opponents are full of white-hooded bigots who refuse to accept a black man as President. Obama’s own strange myopia on race has played a big part.

This article is too great to miss.  Be sure to read it in its totality.  The Telegraph levels a charge that the GOP has “ceded black votes to the Democrats and failed to recruit candidates like Scott to winnable congressional seats.”  And I don’t disagree with that for one moment.

While most of us would consider it self-evident that GOP values agree strongly with the traditional values of the black and hispanic communities, we must also realize that the effort to highlight those areas of agreement has been neglected by the GOP.  Republican presidents have nominated women, blacks and hispanics to the Supreme Court and have appointed them to their cabinets.  But the presence of minority GOP members of Congress has been lacking.

The obvious reason for this is that their vocal leadership and Democrat elites have convinced minority voters that the Democrat Party is the only vehicle to secure their interests.  The GOP’s failure to counteract that false message is a travesty at best and a total disservice to be sure.

If Scott is the only black Republican on Capitol Hill in 2011, he will be all too easily marginalised and treated as a curiosity. That would be a shame because he has some interesting views on cutting the deficit and shrinking government.

“I’ve been black for a long time,” Scott says wearily whenever he is asked about race. He wants to be judged on his character and policies rather than the colour of his skin. At Fort Dorchester, encouragingly enough, not one pupil asked Scott about race or why a black man would be a Republican.

Obama made history by winning the White House. But it will take the likes of Scott to break down the racial barriers in America that the first black president has been content to leave in place.

One last note – there are 3 races where Black Republicans look poised to take a Congressional seat.  Aside from Scott, there is Allen West in Florida and Ryan Frazier in Colorado.  But there are other candidates with a chance.  One of my favorites is Rev. Stephen Broden, who is trying to upend scandal-ridden Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson in Dallas.  He was actually endorsed by the Dallas Morning News (who had repeatedly endorsed Johnson) over the 12-term incumbent.

Want To Know What Business Thinks?

Businesses are suffering under the policies of Obama/Pelosi/Reid.  So is it any surprise that the US Chamber of Commerce has come to the aid of the GOP?  The USCOC is going to spend heavily on behalf of Republicans in 2010.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce will use much of its remaining political war chest to get Republican voters to the polls, a source tells Power Play.

President Obama and his team went on the attack against the Chamber Thursday just as a barrage of new Chamber ads were hitting the airwaves.

The president, his fellow Democrats and allied liberal groups turned up the heat on the U.S. Chamber, claiming that because the business group accepts dues from foreign companies, they were allowing foreigners to influence U.S. elections.

The push to label the Chamber as unpatriotic came as Democratic media buyers across the country were sending some very bad news back to Washington – that the Chamber was dropping $10 million over the course of one week in competitive Senate and House races across the land.

I love how Democrats try to paint business interests in such a bad light.  The hypocrisy is incredible for a couple of reasons.

1)  The Democrats are taking millions from labor unions.  The political voices in the unions are opposed to the interests of business groups.  The thing that they fail to realize is that these business leaders are the ones providing jobs for their members.  It’s the same concept involved with the Democrats’ efforts to tax higher income individuals out of existence.  These are the very same people who pump money into the economy, own businesses and provide jobs.  But, in the Dem world, you punish success and bring everyone down to the same level.  No thoughts to how this strategy can backfire.

2)  Corporate interests have dumped tons of money into Dem campaigns.  While Obama and his congressional buddies rage against the “big business machine,” they also rake in tons of dough from the same big corporations (and their CEOs) that they decry.  The Dems talk the talk in order to satisfy the rank-and-file of the labor unions.  The leadership of these unions knows that the Dems are in bed with big business, but they continue to support the Democrats in return for their help on union issues. Big business (and their CEOs) just hand their money to the party in power hoping to stay in favor.

Groups like the US Chamber of Commerce and National Federation of Independent Businesses speak for small/medium businesses.  So those who decry Big Business as a GOP bedfellow are totally insane. 

I’m an avowed capitalist, so Big Business doesn’t bother me.  Most smaller businesses aspire to grow into larger businesses.  But Big Business is apolitical.  The smaller businesses are the ones who are being smacked in the face by the Obama Administration and the Democrat Congress.  And the groups who represent them have every right to spend millions to support the party who will advance an agenda that will allow them to, not only thrive, but to survive.

More Bad News For Dems – Michigan

John Dingell (D-MI) is in trouble – joining Steny Hoyer and Barney Frank in the club of Democrat leaders with endangered employment status.

The Detroit Free Press reports:

 A new independent poll has the dean of the U.S. House, Rep. John Dingell, trailing his Republican opponent, Rob Steele, by 4 percentage points.

The automated phone survey of 300 people in the 15th Congressional District showed Steele getting 43.8% of the vote. Dingell, a Dearborn Democrat and the longest-serving member of Congress, got 39.5%. About 11% were undecided. The gap is within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 5.6 percentage points. The poll was conducted Monday.

Dingell was first elected in 1954–he took the seat over from his father who was first elected in 1932. So, on the upside, Dingell can always campaign on the compelling message: Are you better off now than you were 78 years ago?

Happy Days!

The Most Important Thing You Can Do

When election time comes around, my friends on gayconservative as well as family/email contacts tend to regard me as a crazy person begging for donations.  I promise you all that this will be the last political donation that I will solicit from you this election cycle.  And it is, perhaps, the most important contribution that we can all make.  This one makes me crazy with its potential.  I urge you all to hear me out.

Dick Morris and Super PAC for America have teamed up to “spread the wealth” to second-tier Republican congressional races through “Project 100.”  The national Republican organizations are focusing their resources on tight races where they have a strong chance to knock off Democrat incumbents or take seats currently held by the Dems.  Morris has launched Project 100 in order to spend last-minute money in races flying under the radar. Their goal is to raise $20 million in order to spend $100,000 in each of these races.

We don’t have poll numbers in all the races, but we do know that liberal stalwarts like Barney Frank and Steny Hoyer are in trouble in their own races.  If unemployment numbers (released Friday) don’t show improvement, then we can expect a hard break to the right – according to DEMOCRAT strategist, Pat Caddell. 

We need 40 seats in the House and 10 in the Senate to regain a Republican majority in Congress.  But Morris isn’t satified with that, and neither am I.  He believes that the GOP can take 100+ seats from Democrats in this reelection.  Think about what that would mean for a moment….

A slim Republican majority would give us a chance to SLOW Obama and his agenda.  A massive Republican tsunami would give us the ability to roll-back Obama and Pelosi’s agenda – and undo a lot of the damage that has already been done.  Taking 100+ seats from Democrats would be one of the most earth-shaking political realignments since the 1800s.  And the opportunity to do that is NOW.  We may not have the opportunity to do this again for many years to come.

Morris feels that such a feat would set back liberalism in the nation FOR A GENERATION.  Imagine that.  We are concerned about the direction of the nation, and this election gives us a chance to turn that direction in a positive manner for decades.  That is why it is so critical that we make this election count for all that it is worth.

I beg all of you who care about the conservative cause to donate at the link below.  Reagan Democrats are coming home, and we have to bring them in.  Project 100 gives us a chance to support those GOP candidates who are within striking distance.  These races are not highly publicized, but they can make a difference.  Nobody really expected the Republican Revolution of 1994.  And with a little help, we can make this bigger than 1994.

As you can probably tell by this post – I am extremely excited about this project.  I have the email from Dick Morris’ site advertising this campaign.  I can forward this email to anyone interested so that you, in turn, can forward it to your email list.  Just let me know.

In the meantime, please donate  here…..

Another Sore Loser

As Steve pointed out earlier, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski is running an active write-in campaign to secure her seat after she lost the GOP primary to Joe Miller.  She is attempting to undermine the duly approved candidate of the Alaska GOP and threatening to turn this seat over to Democrats by dividing Republicans.

Today, the Senate GOP voted to allow Murkowski to retain her seat as ranking member of the Senate Energy Committe despite her decision to challenge Miller in the general election.  I guess I understand part of their reasoning in doing so.

Another senior GOP aide said he thought the members felt Murkowski could win and did not want to look as if they were “kicking her while she’s down,” adding, “And if she does win, by some chance, they don’t want tick her off and push her away from voting with the conference.”

Murkowski, who is in Alaska, said earlier Wednesday that she is a Republican and always has been and has every intention of caucusing with Republicans should she win.

She is an opposite example of the Joe Lieberman phenomenon in Connecticut,  She, like Charlie Crist in Florida, decided to deny the will of the voters.  And Murkowski, like Crist and deated Delaware Senator, Mike Castle, is a sore loser from the establishment.  Murkowski was appointed to the Senate by her father, Frank Murkowski, who was governor at the time and later defeated by Sarah Palin.  Frank was part of the GOP establishment, earmark-happy trio from Alaska that included Don Young and Ted Stevens.  Lisa was a moderate continuation of that establishment bloodline who was defeated by a Tea Party-backed conservative, Joe Miller.

The Lisa Murkowski threat is real.  She can’t win the general election as a write-in candidate, but she can punish Joe Miller and hand the seat to a Democrat due to her family name.  She has decided that she is the only one of the three candidates for Senate qualified to serve the people of Alaska.  That’s total narcissism and reflects the sense of entitlement that she feels as a member of Alaskan royalty.

Hannity and Rush spearheaded a drive, indirectly, that put $1 million+ into the coffers of Delaware GOP Senate candidate, Christine O’Donnell.  It’s time to do the same for Miller.  Murkowski has $1 million to spend in Alaska.  Miller has some funds from the Tea Party and (thank God) the RSC folks.  He needs help from us.  Miller is the conservative in the race and deserves our support.  The House will go GOP in the elections, but we also need the Senate to ensure that Obama’s socialist agenda is stopped.  The Alaska race is crucial.

Donate here.  Don’t let Lisa ruin the party.  She is not entitled to anything.  The establishment is endangered.  Let’s send the message.  Don’t just elect Republicans.  Elect Conservatives.

Obama’s Labor Day Bulls#@t: Wisconsin

President Obama used the occasion of Labor Day to hold a political rally in Wisconsin.  He spewed invectives against the GOP, blaming them for his failure to lead the nation out of recession.

At a Labor Day speech in Milwaukee, Obama said Republicans are betting that between now and the Nov. 2 elections, Americans will forget the Republican economic policies that led to the recession. He said Republicans have opposed virtually everything he has done to help the economy, and have proposed solutions that have only made the problem worse.

“That philosophy didn’t work out so well for middle-class families all across America,” Obama told a cheering crowd at a labor gathering. “It didn’t work out so well for our country. All it did was rack up record deficits and result in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.”

Amazing.  Obama still refuses to own up to his own failures.  He still blames W. and Congressional Republicans for everything that is wrong with the economy today.  This scapegoating BS has to end.  As I’ve said before, it’s time for Obama to man-up and own his own failure as a president.

Even the voters of Wisconsin aren’t buying this crap.

Incumbent Dem. Senator Russ Feingold is in serious trouble this year.

Feingold, seeking his fourth term, had at one time been considered a shoo-in for re-election, especially after former Gov. Tommy Thompson decided not to challenge him.

But Feingold now finds himself in a likely dogfight with [Republican Ron] Johnson. The two have been statistically tied in six Rasmussen Reports polls dating to late May. The New York Times says that Feingold’s polls show him in “an unexpectedly tough race” against a challenger who so far has already spent three times as much as he has.

Remember US Rep. David Obey?  He was a liberal icon from the state of Wisconsin.  He served as a Dem leader in the US House for decades until he finally saw the handwriting on the wall this year and wisely retired.  His replacement is up for grabs.  But it now appears that this lib will be replaced by a Republican (interesting guy).

Sean Duffy was supposed to be the 2010 Republican sacrificial lamb, running against one of the House’s longest-serving liberal lions, Rep. David Obey.But in an election year that’s been anything but predictable, Obey unexpectedly announced his retirement in May, saying he was “bone-tired,” and Duffy, 38, now finds himself the would-be frontrunner in a race against Julie Lassa, a Democratic state senator, in Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District.

How about Wisonsin’s governor’s race to replace Dem. Jim Doyle?  Well, it doesn’t look much better for the Dems.

With less than three weeks until Wisconsin Republicans pick their nominee, both GOP hopefuls in the state’s gubernatorial contest run just slightly ahead of Democrat Tom Barrett.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows former Congressman Mark Neumann picking up 48% support while Barrett, the mayor of Milwaukee, earns 44% of the vote. Only three percent (3%) prefer another candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

Go ahead Barry.  Spew your BS and propose more spending to address your failures as president.  The people of this nation aren’t buying it.  And the folks in Wisconsin apparently aren’t any different.

Turning Tide: Ohio

Ohio is a bellweather state in politics.  The bells are tolling a requiem for Democrats in the 2010 elections, apparently.  This from Fox News:

Voters in Ohio are angry. Unemployment is 9th worst in the nation and has hovered over 10% all year.

Labor argues that in this 2010 midterm election the anger is best directed at the Bush administration for what the left calls “failed GOP policies of the past.” Polls in Ohio and nationwide however suggest the anger is being aimed at Democrats…..

Incumbent governors routinely have their states strongest political machines and that is the case with Ohio Democrat Ted Strickland.

However Strickland trails GOP challenger and former congressman John Kasich by 12 points in the latest Columbus Dispatch poll conducted just before Labor Day by mail…..

Strickland’s current lieutenant governor, Lee Fisher is leaving the statehouse to seek the U.S. Senate, but Fisher trails by 13 percent behind popular former congressman and Bush administration official Rob Portman….

Several incumbent House Democrats are also in trouble. In the Buckeye State’s first congressional district (Cincinnati), Democratic freshman Steve Driehaus is in a rematch against former Republican Congressman Steve Chabot. Driehaus beat Chabot in 2008. Before that Chabot, who won the seat in the 1994 GOP revolution, had held it for 14 years. Chabot is now favored to return to D.C. and pickup the seat for the GOP.

In Ohio’s 15th congressional district (Columbus) freshman Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy is also facing a rematch and in trouble. Republican state Senator Steve Stivers, a lieutenant colonel in the Ohio National Guard, served a tour of duty in Iraq prior to 2005. In 2008 Stivers won the GOP nomination but lost, this time he’s favored.

In the 16th district (Canton) incumbent Democrat John Boccieri is also in trouble, facing Republican businessman and former Wadsworth mayor Jim Renacci.

All three House Democrats are under fire for their votes on health care reform, financial regulation, stimulus spending and the Obama agenda. Labor may want voters to blame the Bush administration for what it DID…but polls say voters are unhappy about what the Obama administration is DOING.

The voters in Ohio aren’t the only ones who are angry.  Political guru Larry Sabato who is the director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics (I’ve always suspected he might be slanted a little to the left) finally acknowledged wholeheartedly that the GOP will take the House, and he is leaving the Senate open to GOP control if it can pick up the 10 seats needed.  He upgraded GOP chances from a +7 gain to a potential 8-9 seat gain in the upper house.

My mind is buzzing at 1000 mph these days.  I don’t want to be overconfident, but I feel a little hopeful (almost giddy) inside.  The voter GOP preference poll results are at historical highs.  The “Summer of Recovery” that Obama and the Dems promised hasn’t occured.  The Democrats are now going to engage in a “triage” which will effectively cut off campaign funding for all but the most hopeful yet endangered Democrat Congressional candidates.

Pelosi and Reid’s worlds are falling apart before their very eyes.  They know, and the voters know, that as soon as the GOP resumes control of Congress that they (emboldened by conservative and Tea Party newcomers) will begin to dismantle Obamacare and the other massive legislative mistakes that have occured over the past 2 years.

 And that, my friends, is why the voters will empower the GOP in November.  Then it will be up the Republicans to embrace the mandate and do what they were elected to do – and not screw it up again.

 

Miller Closer than Expected (Thanks Sarah!)

(Notice the “grim” picture of the photo of Joe Miller used by the media)

I was very interested in the Alaskan Senate race and have been following Sarah Palin’s Facebook posts.

I spent last week paying attention to the AP and to observe alleged “Alaskans” coming out against Palin in this massive support for incumbent, Lisa Murkowski. 

Murkowski did not win her initial seat in the United States Senate.  She was appointed by the then-Governor, Frank Murkowski, who also happened to be her daddy.  Sarah Palin was a candidate back in those days of a short-list Murkowski kept to fill that seat and in the end, he chose his daughter.  As Palin was cast aside by Murkowski, he offered her the job of heading the Alaska Oil and Gas Commission.  It was there which Palin gained her vast knowledge on energy issues where she teamed up with Democrats to take out Republican operatives (establishment RINOs) who were taking information from the AOGC to oil-industry insiders.  This began Palin’s crusade against the Murkowskis.  The private jets, the personal chefs, and the nepotism of back-scratching with family members and oil-industry executives at the expense of the people was a thing of the past!

After doing this, Palin took Frank Murkowski on and won Alaska’s Governor’s race in a landslide. 

Not only did Murkowski get canned, but Palin canned every corrupt member of Murkowski’s back-scratching team.  So naturally, Lisa Murkowski has had a grudge against Palin for quite sometime.

Allegedly knowing how bureaucracy works, Lisa Murkowski defied common sense and publicly slammed Palin for resigning last year as Governor.  Even though Palin’s enemies; which consisted of both liberals and Palin-spanked RINOs, used an ethics law which Palin championed for to file almost 30 frivolous ethics charges against her that cost Palin nearly a half-million in personal legal debt as well as $2M of Alaskan taxpayer money and endless state resources of time and energy distracting Palin’s impressive administration from moving forward.  Murkowski denied the common sense characterization of Palin’s resignation (selfless and in the best interest of Alaskans) and attacked to appease the anti-Palin sentiment portrayed to this day by the media and liberals alike.

The cronyism among Murkowski-like Republicans has been just as devastating to our country as liberalism.  In fact, it’s even worse.  They do it in the name of “conservatism.”

For the last week, every media article released defined the race as a no-brainer for Murkowski.  A Politico article today describes “public polls showed Murkowski heavily favored to win Tuesday’s primary” while others simultaneously portrayed the race as a grudge match between Murkowski and Palin

Step 1. Discourage Miller’s voters from turning out.

Step 2. Be able to portray this as an overwhelming message of America’s anti-Palinism while loving the RINOs who have contributed to running our country in the ground.

But tonight, with 51% of the precincts reporting, Miller leads Murkowski by 52% to 48%.

Even though the media did its best to underscore the Palin-endorsed candidate’s chances.  Even though Alaskan “Republicans” have been coming out of the woodwork mysteriously to tell us how Palin embarrasses them and doesn’t speak for them.

No matter how this race concludes, the power of Palin and the tea party against establishment RINO incumbents; who suck up to convenience and diss conviction is undeniable. Even if Murkowski does pull ahead in the second half of the precincts to report, knowing she massively outspent Miller, the fact that she’s probably pissing in her pants right now is proof.

I cannot wait to get the AP’s interpretation of this tomorrow.

Notice how everything the AP does lately with regard to the upcoming midterms centers around Palin and her influence.  But expect to turn blue holding your breath waiting for them to accurately portray it.

Hopeful Thinking

So what do you think about Biden’s remarks?

Vice President Joe Biden, rallying the home team as his party’s most energetic cheerleader, predicted Friday that Democrats would hold their majorities in the House and Senate this fall. Biden’s bold punditry came amid a spate of bad economic news and President Obama’s declining approval rating.

Speaking to the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting in St. Louis, the vice president mocked the rival “Republican tea party,” which he said is “offering more of the past, but on steroids.” If “it weren’t illegal,” he said, ” I’d make book” on the odds of Democrats hanging on in the midterm elections this November……

Next Nov. 3, Biden predicted “there will be in Washington, D.C., a Democratic majority in the House and a Democratic majority in the Senate. That will be the case.” The anger of voters is understandable given the high joblessness and weak economic recovery, he said. But the vice president said he likes the odds when the choice is between Democrats and a “Republican tea party… out of step with where the American people are.”

I guess the question is……who is more out of step?  I really thought that the Democrats and the Obama administration were more “out of touch” with the American populace, but evidently, the Democrats are trying to make this into a Tea Party thing.  The Tea Party folks are obviously extremist (as Biden et al would claim) despite the fact that they are a multi-racial, independent group of folks just tired of Washington BS.

Biden’s remarks are just one of many declaring war on average Americans who are fed up with Washington types, defict spending and runaway federal government.  The Tea Party isn’t Republican.  It represents the first time in many years that ordinary Americans have asserted themselves against the ridiculous crap going on in DC.  Biden and his liberal ilk are making a serious mistake by alienating these people.  But I always love it when ole Joe opens his yap.  It’s better for us.

Liberals Getting Sloppier (Yes, it’s possible!)

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4gL2WEnjVY&feature=email]

The biggest hindrance to Democracy is untruth.  Especially when we are supposed to be able to rely on human decency and our media for information and objective opinion.  If liberals weren’t so sloppy at the lies they tell and tricks they pull, they could pose a real danger to our freedom.

The first example involved a “man” by the name of David Weigel who showed up at a political event held for Kentucky.  He posed as a racist Republican who was a supporter of Rand Paul.  But when the cameramen got word of his trick from the other side (members supporting the liberal actually bragged about what he was doing), the cameraman had a conversation with him both as a Rand Paul supporter and then caught him marching and chanting for the liberal later on that day. 

With so much emphasis liberals have placed on the Tea Party (not to mention the NAACP), you would think this story would show up somewhere on CNN.  Yes, I know millions of Americans are out of work, losing their homes, and Michelle is enjoying one heck of a taxpayer-funded getaway to Spain, but you’d think after all that has happened with regard to the Tea Party, they’d have time for such raw footage.

Rick Sanchez of CNN has the time to entertain a piece of “raw” video on Sarah Palin which was brought to light by an Alaskan blogger who has been obsessed with the Governor for the past three years. 

The video — which Palin herself has responded to on Facebook today — depicts Palin “rolling her eyes” at a “teacher” by the name of Kathleen Gustafson.  The “teacher” turned out to be a “theater tech” and sits on the Board of Directors of the town’s local “Family Planning Clinic.”

It’s funny knowing this and then listen to her begin by telling Palin she swore on her “precious Bible” to serve the state then implied that Palin left for personal gain.  If she’s a board-member of a Family Planning Clinic and uses the Bible in such an angry context, I find it hard to believe Ms. Gustafson was a Palin supporter to begin with. 

Then take into consideration that Gustafson lives in the same town of Homer, Alaska as Shannyn Moore does.  Shannyn Moore is President of the Palin Derangement Syndrome Society.  For years, she’s “investigated” the Governor (falsely said Palin was under investigation by the FBI and cried victim when Palin’s attorney threatened lawsuit for it) and has entertained Levi Johnston.  We all know by now how credible he turned out to be.

C’mon liberals!  Are we really supposed to believe that this woman — an unhinged lefty — was standing up and holding a sign that said “Worst Governor Ever!” and happened to be accompanied by her own cameraman and just happens to live in the same town as Shannyn Moore (population of Homer is just over 5,000) all by coincidence?

Immediately Shannyn Moore posted two articles on this, uploaded the video to youtube, copied and pasted her article to the Huffington Post (which drew over 10,000 comments from other lefties suffering from Palin Derangement Syndrome) and sent it to CNN.

This is the same woman who appeared on “Countdown” with Keith Olbermann where she was introduced to his regular 12 viewers.

The indignant “teacher” is not very impressive.  It is a well-documented fact that Palin-haters in Alaska filed numerous ethics violations costing taxpayers $2M and Palin $500K in defense fees.  She resigned to dis-empower them and give Alaska a Governor who could devote the time to them without those interruptions.  Somehow the “teacher” is unable to comprehend this and yet she wants us to believe that parents trust her with guiding their children?

This was Shannyn Moore’s weakest attempt at investigative blogging as it took conservative bloggers about three minutes to solve this.  The homely “Girl from Homer” is getting desperate.

CNN should report these developments but I won’t hold my breath.

***Update***

As noted by “jerry” who I also believe is posing as “robert” on other conservative blogs, Gustafson does work for a school.  Though the title is “theater tech” as I stated before (hardly the reading-writing-arithmetic type).  And “jerry” denies Ms. Gustafson being President of the local family planning facility but does acknowledge she sits on the board. 

Since Shannyn Moore fought so hard for her right to report rumors when she was going around telling others that Palin was being investigated by the FBI, I have appropriately changed the paragraphs which questioned Gustafson’s teaching credentials. 

Lastly, she injected herself into the public arena by protesting and certainly should be subjected to the same scrutiny and specificity as Joe-the-Plumber was.
