Sarah Palin – In her own words.

There are those who use change to promote their careers, then there are those…who use their careers to promote change. Sarah Palin

“I had the privilege of living most of my life in a small town. I was just your average hockey mom, and signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids’ public education better. When I ran for city council, I didn’t need focus groups and voter profiles because I knew those voters, and knew their families, too. Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities.”

On why she is going to Washington, D.C.:

“I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I’ve learned quickly, these past few days, that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion – I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.”

On energy policies that the McCain-Palin administration will implement:

“Our opponents say, again and again, that drilling will not solve all of America’s energy problems – as if we all didn’t know that already. But the fact that drilling won’t solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all. Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines…build more nuclear plants…create jobs with clean coal…and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources. We need American energy resources, brought to you by American ingenuity, and produced by American workers.”

On John McCain:

“Here’s how I look at the choice Americans face in this election. In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.”

    On Creationism:

    The simple yet elegantly awkward moose proves God’s creation and not evolution is the source of all life. How could something as oddly shaped and silly looking as a moose evolve through so-called “natural selection?” Is evolution a committee? There is nothing natural about a dorky moose! Only God could have made a moose and given it huge antlers to fight off his predatory enemies. God has a well known sense of humor, I mean He made the platypus too.

    On oil exploration and drilling in the ANWR:

    God made dinosaurs 4,000 years ago as ultimately flawed creatures, lizards of Satan really, so when they died and became petroleum products we, made in his perfect image, could use them in our pickup trucks, snow machines and fishing boats. Now, as to the ANWR, Todd and I often enjoying caribou hunting and one year we shot up a herd big time, I mean I personally slaughtered around 40 of them with my new, at the time, custom Austrian hunting rifle. And guess what? That caribou herd is still around and even bigger than ever. Caribou herds actually need culling, be it by rifles or wolves, or Exxon-Mobil oil rigs, they do just great!

    On Alaskans serving overseas in Iraq:

    Well, God bless them, and I mean God and Jesus because without Jesus we’d be Muslims too or Jewish, which would be a little better because of the superior Israeli Air Force.

      Or is this just more of the bile-filled BS that seems to be filling your postings lately?

      You’re starting to make Sir Robin look soft and fuzzy in comparison.  That last comment is so obviously what someone like you thinks a Republican is like it falls into self-parody.

        as the evil, bad poster on CoPols. I must be doing something right!

          Although I have never thought of myself as bile-filled?  I guess posting things from other sources like the NYT or CNN or the WaPo makes one bile-filled.

          Speaking of bile-filled. During the DNC I had the pleasure of meeting Karl Rove on the set of Fox.  We talked for about 15 minutes.  He was actually quite charming and we laughed at what pundits do for a living. He kissed me on the cheek when I left.

          When I told my friends about the encounter, they commented, “Well, I would imagine that Satan would be very charming.” The more I think about it, I am concerned that this oozing blister on my cheek is related to the kiss – JUST JOKING!

    – The elegant moose is proof of creationism.

    – Oil companies are perfect for culling moose herds.

    – If we couldn’t be Christians, it’s better to be jewish because of their superior (US funded) Air Force.

    WOW. The intellect necessary for these kind of statements is astounding.

    Wow – interesting view. We need someone willing to step up and actually solve the hard problems we face, not talk in generic plattitudes.

    We all know the value of campaign slogans – they’re GOLDEN. I’m voting McCain now because of these stirring words.
