A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States
by Sarah Palin on Thursday, November 25, 2010 at 8:46pm

My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate – from the FBI’s 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system . We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. And let’s face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don’t know what the term is in Austrian for that…

Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn’t have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you can’t remember hearing about them, that’s because for the most part the media didn’t consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe – even news anchors.

Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldn’t resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.

If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Beck’s radio show, they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime. The media could even have done due diligence and checked my previous statements on the subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve. But why let the facts get in the way of a good story? (And for that matter, why not just make up stories out of thin air – like the totally false hard news story which has run for three days now reporting that I lobbied the producers of “Dancing with the Stars” to cast a former Senate candidate on their show. That lie is further clear proof that the media completely makes things up without doing even rudimentary fact-checking.)

“Hope springs eternal” as the poet says. Let’s hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding America’s free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

- Sarah Palin

I sure have my fingers crossed that she runs for president. That way Obama will be a shoo-in for a second term.

Great. The Democrats are really afraid of Sarah. And they should be ! She is a real American and not the phonie in office now. LOL

Russ - I think that you ran this article at the wrong time of the year. Instead of the Thanksgiving/Christmas season, it should have been run on April Fools Day. It would have been more appreciate.

Have a Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year.

Has anyone else seen the essay on Obama being such a narcisist? It turns out that he really wasn't a law professor at the U of Chicago, he wrote his book while there. Much of his background has been phonied up to paint a certain picture. Compared to Barry Obama, Sarah Palin is up-front and open. She isn't my choice for President, but we MUST get rid of this strange man we have now.

It's like you hit rock bottom and then someone threw you a jackhammer.

Maybe, Palin’s detractors could tell us why they hate this woman. You will notice that they seldom speak of her policies or political views but keep repeating the distortions of her record and take the editorial views of MSNBC as fact. Their fear of her causes them to think it ok to not only lie about her but to attack her husband and children.

Maybe they won’t discuss her beliefs because they can’t defend their own

Moe: She QUIT the job she was elected to do in Alaska to do reality shows and the like. Why would anyone elect her to do a even more important job?

--by Facts on 1/3/11   Lives: Detroit area  

Didn't say she should be elected to anything. She had Good reasons to leave her job.

Please explain why it's fair game to falsify her record and to attack her family including her kids. The liberal press saw nothing wrong in a talk show host making a joke about her 13 yr. old daughter being raped.
