BREAKING: Senate authorizes Palin's pipeline!

In a MAJOR victory for Gov. Palin, the Alaska Senate has authorized the TransCanada Corporation to construct a natural gas pipeline! The plan has already passed the State House, so all that is needed is Palin's signature. She will be holding a press conference on the subject shortly. With this pipeline, Alaska's natural gas can finally start flowing into hungry energy markets across America.

Meanwhile, I'm getting emails telling me that certain TV media personalities are in full attack mode against Gov. Palin, joining the DailyKos/Huffington Post bandwagon. The new pipeline could make Palin a national hero, and the liberal media is doing everything possible to keep her off the ticket.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have succeeded. The left-winger are running scared from Sarah Palin...and that is the single best argument for her nomination.

Great news Adam, a major legislative achievement under her belt...

Would it be too Obamaesque for me to state that there is no doubt she is the "ONE".

While Nancy Pelosi is off shutting down Congress to avoid energy independence, Gov. Palin is working hard for America. Congrats Governor!!

Fantastic!! Palin surely is a political rockstar!!

The post on the Daily Kos reads, "Palin bows out of the Senate Race."

She needs to get full control of this issue. I'd suggest that she remove other underperformers in the Alaska State Government in the next few days to demonstrate she's cleaning house in every area that needs a change in control.

Good idea. I don't favor putting politics over policy, but if there are any other cabinet changes to be made, she should do it now. BTW, was this top cop the first change she made as Guv? It seems in two years there would have been other changes.

Who are the media personalities that you were referring too?

Well, Palin has a legislative success, and it involves a future large infrastructure project, like.....some other past VP who became President, Teddy R. and the Panama Canal.

If I recall from history class, Teddy had to be 'bully' to get that one through too.

Sarah is a doer in the likes of Roosevelt, and they both have hunted too.

The similarities are there. However, she would be put on the ticket to win, not to simply get out of Alaska.

Anon: Palin was mentioned on Hardball with Mike Barnicle as host (who concluded with the scandal with no real context to make her look bad) and was also mentioned in a neutral light on FNC's America's Election Headquarters (although the interviewee at the time was a Democrat who used his time to attack the lack of women in the Republican Party). Both mentions were due to the Washington Times article.

I e-mailed Adam about these, and he is trying to find transcripts.

The names I heard were Chris Matthews on Hardball and someone on their "Election 08" program w/ david Gregory. I need to confirm via transscripts or something,

damian, could you please repeat that, I did not understand?

"(who concluded with the scandal with no real context to make her look bad)"

Damian G. said...

Anon: Basically, Barnicle only mentioned the charge levelled against Gov. Palin and not her case for her innocence.

Jessica said...

This is pretty exciting. I think in particular, it puts her head and shoulders above Bobby Jindal and I think would be a real kudos against Pawlenty as well. But, alas, we have no idea what they are strategizing about in their choice.

Dr. V -

It also helps our case that Jindal has said that he won't be on the ticket, but Palin has been coy. ;-)

"The One" just said he would now support off shore drilling. What a piece of work. McCain will have to play this well since he earlier flipped on this issue. A Palin pick would help shore up his position as not just a pander to voters, as well as put ANWR on the table. This is going to be a tough play for the campaign. They'll have to show 1) Obama said drilling wouldn't lower gas prices, and 2) he said that higher gas prices were goo just not that they got high so fast. Personally I think he's pandering. But he may be overdoing it. I think even some of his loyal MSM fans are getting a little nervous.

Vicki, I believe Obama has already peaked, but that doesn't mean any of us should get complacent.

Where did Obama say that he now supports offshore drilling? That's a huge flipflop! The leftist netroots will eat him alive! This is bigger than his public financing flop. Where did you read this? A link please?

There you go!

flapper said...

Just wait. Obama will soon be talking about nuclear power, too. This is why McCain needs to come out in favor of ANWR drilling. It would give Palin a big issue to talk about (if she's the VP) as well as illustrate the difference between McCain & Obama.

The last thing the GOP wants is for the average voter to look at the parties' energy plans and not see much difference.

TC said...

flapper, after what Congress did today believe me, they won't have any problem at all in seeing the differences between the parties' energy policies. They will be able to tell that Obama is changing his mind for votes, and that Nancy Pelosi's position on energy is the true Dem. energy policy.

The shift on off shore drilling was on pretty much all the news websites last night. Yahoo. MSNBC. CNN. He was speaking somewhere in South Florida.
I still think McCain has to be very careful with jumping on ANWR. I think he should pick Palin and then simply say it is "on the table". Even on Palin's Kudlow interview, when they were talking about ANWR drilling, guess what they were showing in the background? Yep, those same photos of rushing rivers, fields of wildflowers, roaming caribou, and majestic mountain peaks. I think before he jumps on ANWR they need to do a pr blitz showing what the drilling area looks like, and showing those caribou hanging out around the pipe lines. Right now, Obama looks like a flip flopper. If McCain jumps on ANWR, I'm afraid it will look like a one-up-manship contest of who can flip the most.
