So what benefit has Palin gained from her behavior, do you think?

Both Rance's post and your reply lead me to believe only that any possible future criticisms of Mr. Parnell are going to be met with the same type of knee jerk responses that your posts are. Oh, and that you'll fallen for the poor little me ruse that the governor is trying to pull. Oh, and that you don't understand the complexities of politics enough to even get that the majority of Palin's detractors are members of the Republican party. Mr. Parnell doesn't appear to be a camera chaser, an agitator, or a vindictive lying hysterical mess.

Should he show signs of becoming that, I'm sure that he'll inspire some dissatisfaction among his constituents. Unlike the soon to be former governor, however, his track record in no way indicates that he is even slightly veering in that particular direction.

I will say now though that I do hope that a couple of bloggers in particular will give him a chance
I certainly have not fallen for any "poor little me" ruse of Palin's or any politicians as far as that goes. I see them all as "one in the same" regardless of their party affiliations. But it is incredible how Palin has been ripped apart on the Alaska Forum, but then the minute someone posts something about the wonderful administration we have now, some people go bonkers..go figure. It's like this..if posters can't take it....then don't dish it out.

I, for one, as I have said before, do NOT support any of them. But "fair is fair" and every dimboish thing she did or said was ALL over the news media. Biden and some more of those intelligent ones have had numerous blunders that are brushed aside.

The good thing is for those who don't live here year round and who are not employed up here don't have alot to worry about unless she does ever become President which I do sincerely doubt.

Yes, I believe we all know the "complexities" of politics....it is very, very apparent with every branch of our Government.

I have no doubt Parnell will be critized sooner or later; they all are. I don't defend any of them; none worth defending....but as I said, fair is fair. Obviously the Dems think its ok to blast away at any Republican but think they are on sacred ground...yeah, sure they are.

I agree with your observation. He's getting a opportunity to make a name for himself and be a shoe-in to be elected governor next year. Hopefully, he'll make the most of it.

Not her behavior, just by being in the news, she'll get that continued name recognition. Even bad news is better than no news at all. Of course, I'm sure she'd prefer good news, but I bet she gets more "bad" than good.

These things called "Conservatives" are strange. They don't seem to be able to see that success is when a problem is solved, and instead only care if it fits their ideology. They don't care if a proposal solves a problem, only if it has few enough words with few enough syllables that they can understand how it is not "socialism"!

Parnell is going to be picked apart, just as every governor is. No governor can ever please everyone. The question is whether he is strong enough to deal with disagreement and capable of focusing on significant issues. If he is sidetracked by everyone who doesn't praise him... he'll just have to resign too!

It doesn't matter who holds the seat. There is always someone (vulture) that goes to digging and prying and eventually starts trashing. Just give it some time.

Pat, you're always saying that you don't defend "any of them", yet in almost every thread on this board where someone breaths in the wrong octave about Palin, you're telling them some variation of "get a life".

Do you have any examples of people going "bonkers" when the current administration is criticized here?

And as I've stated, most of the "blasting" concerning the soon to be thank former governor has come from the party in which she claims membership.

What are your particular thoughts on Sean Parnell, by the way?

As a fairly new to ongoing Alaska politics (me amongst others), what is Sean Parnell going to do for us, as I think we are all wore out with the other SP? Any ideas? Just found out he was from CA...
We know that Sean is not nationally well known, so the liberal freaks in the media and talk show comedians will most likely not make jokes about raping his daughter.

We know he is a white male, so the media cannot attack him and denigrate him for being female like they do with Gov. Palin.

We also know that he is a conservative, so expect the pathetic leftists to continue to file frivolous ethics charges, make up lies about FBI investigations, and generally dishonor themselves and waste taxpayer dollars as usual.

I just hope Sean keeps the name of the church he attends to himself, for his own safety. The last thing we need is another liberal freak trying to burn down a church with children inside.

I'd say that's entirely up to her at this point. Who knows what she'll even do, though I do tend to agree with Lyda Green's assessment of the situation.

If I supported Palin, trust me I would not have a problem in saying so. Again, I thought I explained it in previous post and other posts...WHY is one attacked and others who are just as dimboish or himboish are not. For example, notrees loves to start bashing threads on her while the Governor of his State has bankrupted the State of California. As far as examples of folks going bonkers when the current administration is criticized, all you have to do is read the posts and the name-calling that goes with it. Take a look at any of the posts about Palin.

My thoughts on Parnell, from what I've seen, he appears polished and professional and I'm thinking that his experience from the AK. House of Representatives should give him a pretty good edge. Seeing that he is also an attorney should help matters. Not that I'm particularly fond of lawyers but he's got a good education. As with all politicians I take a "wait and see" attitude and do hope that they do a good job.
