    Default Palin photo means bye to Maui

    Politicians who visit Hawaii need to remember that this state is filled with cameras. See the photo:

    [Sarah Palin: I'm No Mad Hatter! Posted Dec 17th 2009 12:17PM]

    Here's excerpts from the SB:
    http://www.starbulletin.com/news/20091218_Palin_shortens_Maui_vacation_after_fuss_o ver_McCain_visor.html

    Former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is cutting short her Maui vacation after she was photographed on the beach wearing a campaign visor with "McCain" blacked out, according to Politico.com. The Web site reported Palin issued a statement last night apologizing if "people took this silly incident the wrong way."
    Palin continued, "Todd and I have since cut our vacation short because the incognito attempts didn't work and fellow vacationers were bothered for the two days we spent in the sun.


    Why would Palin do something as dumb as this? She can afford a new hat. She knows there are camera galore in Hawaii. And she knows the media is following her every move.
    So, was it just a "dumb" move, or a calculated one to say .... what?...
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    she should have come to Oahu - fewer paparazzi here. all the big time celebs go to Maui so the photogs tend to lurk there. what was she doing here for vacation anyway? i thought she was uncomfortable with all the dark skinned folks? after all that was the reason she left school here wasn't it?

    It got the point across how she really feels about McCain.

    Palin couldn't finish her governorship. She couldn't finish the 5K Turkey Trot race. She couldn't finish a book signing tour. She couldn't even finish a vacation to Hawaii!

    Can she finish a sundae!?

    I was finished with Palin long ago. In fact, I never started.

    Well if you have any of her old campaign visors, just recycle it by blacking out her name with a marking pen.

    A bit off topic but...Several years ago when President & Mrs. Clinton were visiting Maui, Mrs. Clinton wanted to go to the red sand beach at Hana. Knowing that that beach often has nude sunbathers and that a horrible scandal could ensue, advance people (maybe including secret service) went to the nude sunbathers there and asked them to please put on a swimsuit because Hillary Clinton was coming. To which one sunbather replied, "Who's Hillary Clinton?"

    What's next? Is TMZ going to fish out a discarded "McCain 2008" pen from the Palin's trash can as proof that Sarah Barracuda is dissing her former running mate?

    The Asians are still in Hawaii? The Asians made her leave Hawaii again.

    "But Palin's father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to Conroy and Walshe. According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: "They were a minority type thing and it wasn't glamorous, so she came home."

    OMG. Now granted that the account came from her father, not directly from her, and he might have just made the whole thing up. But if true, this would be reason enough to eliminate her from becoming president or anything else that requires her acting in behalf of ALL the diverse people of America.

    Default But..., she's hot!

    You'd unfortunately get a loud rebuke from millions of failing Palinheads that can't wait for her to run in 2012.

    The upside? We get to laugh at her for many more years and watch her blow elections galore.

    Her supporters will probably claim that her father was inaccurately representing her views. Heck, I cannot even wrap MY brain around the kind of feelings that were expressed in the father's statement (which were said to be Palin's views).

    Asian votes don't matter. Most Asians don't vote (on the mainland). Press will not even carry this because, offending Asians have no recourse. Sad but true if you think about it.

    Interesting statistic, cabanalane. Can you steer me toward some documentation on the voting habits of different ethnicities?

    http://www.census.gov/population/pop...mic/Voting.pdf

    According to the US Census:
    Looking at the proportion of voting-age citizens in 2004, non-Hispanic White citizens had the highest level of voter turnoutó67 percent. They were followed by Black citizens (60 percent), Hispanic citizens (47 percent), and Asian citizens (44 percent).
    Asians have enough of a voting influence to make-it-or-break-it in a close election. They could definitely influence electoral college votes in a swing state if there is a large enough (that is, concentrated) Asian population. The stats above are from 5 years ago, but the numbers are probably still similar today.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    so if you don't vote your an illegal alien? Many US citizens don't vote regardless of race...but they're not illegal nore are they aliens. They are US Citizens. I'd hate to think US Born citizens of German ancestry are considered illegal aliens simply because they failed to vote.

    who care about Sara Palin, ..I mean really? This lady is a painful reminder of where the GOP is heading. For all you die hard right-wing fanatics, your world is about to come tumbling down! The last 48 hours in the GOP's world is been a real thing of beauty. To watch them eat their own has been real joy the past few days! How can anybody truly support this party?

    And the last 24-hours seems to be the demise of Harry Reid. Double standards prevail and he just proved it. How can anybody truly support this party with this kind of support for a man that called our own president something that a republican would be forced to step down from?

    he didn't make the comment about the president - he made it about a candidate for pres. and as of today, he has the full support of Obama who is even going to help him campaign. Obviously, there are no hard feeling involved. and if Obama doesn't have bad feelings - why should any of us?
