Palin Dubbed An Opportunist - Campaign Style is Right Out of ROVE

PLAYBOOK, But Since We Know As A True NEOCON She Doesn't Read, She Is A Rove Second Coming - And NO WONDER You Neocons Just Can't Get Enough Of This MILF-ROVE Abomination

Below is an excerpt from the linked article. Seems she got her start in politics with a "gentleman" and then learned to step over him she had to get Rovian. And then did it.


There was a knife-sharp, personal edge to Palin's campaign that many locals found disturbing, particularly because of the warm relationship between Palin and Stein before the race.

"I called Sarah's campaign for mayor the end of the age of innocence in Wasilla," said Carney.

Even though Palin knew that Stein is a Protestant Christian, from a Pennsylvania Dutch background, her campaign began circulating the word that she would be "Wasilla's first Christian mayor." Some of Stein's supporters interpreted this as an attempt to portray Stein as Jewish in the heavily evangelical community. Stein himself, an eminently reasonable and reflective man, thinks "they were redefining Christianity to mean born-agains."

The Palin campaign also started another vicious whisper campaign, spreading the word that Stein and his wife -- who had chosen to keep her own last name when they were married -- were not legally wed. Again, Palin knew the truth, Stein said, but chose to muddy the waters. "We actually had to produce our marriage certificate," recalled Stein, whose wife died of breast cancer in 2005 without ever reconciling with Palin.

"I had a hand in creating Sarah, but in the end she blew me out of the water," Stein said, sounding more wearily ironic than bitter. "Sarah's on a mission, she's an opportunist."

Where DO you draw the line around your integrity? Is there NOTHING a Republican can do to earn your disapproval?

Get out of my party, you charlatan. Take Jayhawk with you.

Success is not always measured in the score.

The void of ethics from both is the very heart of the NeoCon philosophy. Victory at all costs. Some are foolish enough to think that is to proud of.

I understand that. My question has always been, is it worth it when ethics are compromised to win?

Do we need another swiftboating or brown baby or racist rancor just to win? How much is selling the soul for victory worth? And I did ask the same questions of Hillary.

By all accounts then, you would defend Palin if, after the election, and hypothetically, she wins, it is discovered that she runs the illegal drug manufacturing and distribution "houses" and personally "handles" the Alaskan abortion trade for near term abortions. Because she "won." Which is all about as likely as anything else she might turn out to be, based on her known past records and the pattern such Christofacists in power have for turning out to be drug using sex perverts. Great show of judgment, bottomline1.
