Now is the time to contribute to the campaign. She’ll get a free media boost this week with the endorsement, but they need a serious influx of cash for the primary and, assuming there is a runoff, for that too.

She’s going to need to get the word out.

Like Palin and that bridge to nowhere, “Thanks, but no thanks.”

ACCmoderate July 12, 2010 at 1:11 pm

You mean the bridge that Palin initially supported?

How large a donation can I put you down for?

inlimine July 12, 2010 at 1:26 pm

I will have to go with Palin’s flip-flop-final-answer on the bridge and stick with the “no thanks,” Regis.

iamnotasocialist July 12, 2010 at 4:13 pm

I like the legal screen name, inlimine.

Holly July 12, 2010 at 5:10 pm

Okay, I hate this lie. A lot. So let me correct you.

Palin’s final answer on the Gravina Island Bridge was “Alaska wants the money, so let’s use it elsewhere.” It was redistributed to other projects in the state.

Palin was quite accepting of federal money while governor, which isn’t surprising, seeing how over a third of Alaska’s economy is made up of federal government spending. The one exception was when she vetoed education stimulus funds in 2009. The legislature reinstated those funds.

ACCmoderate July 12, 2010 at 7:55 pm

So Palin contributed to this massive deficit by refusing to take a strong stance against unnecessary pork projects?

Provocateur July 12, 2010 at 11:16 pm

Wow! Someone just posted this on Facebook regarding Palin’s actual comments on “seeing Russia from Alaskan land” as though that gives her a keen insight into Russian political policy:

Holly July 13, 2010 at 9:34 am

When you put it that way, yes.

Make you checks to the Chapman Campaign. He could use the money and no one accused him of lying. Do the right thing.


Ambernappe July 12, 2010 at 3:15 pm

Truth has an ARMY, and many of the soldiers will vote for Karen Handel!

Fred Smulavich July 12, 2010 at 9:06 pm

poor deluded souls, those

SFrazier July 12, 2010 at 2:14 pm

I would die before I vote for Handel. Palin has betrayed her base, she will not get away with it.

Chris July 12, 2010 at 2:37 pm

“I would die before I vote for Handel.”

Wow, you’re one upping those of us who say we’ll vote Barnes.

Ambernappe July 12, 2010 at 3:08 pm

She is also depriving her candidate of a supporter!

Ambernappe July 12, 2010 at 3:09 pm

…or HE

TPNoGa July 12, 2010 at 3:46 pm

Who do you support, or who are you leaning towards supporting?

TalmadgeGhost July 12, 2010 at 3:15 pm


I have to ask this question – Who is “her base” and how has she betrayed them? I’m not a Palin fan, but if she’s anything she’s consistent – consistently crazy.

Very curious.

SFrazier July 12, 2010 at 4:11 pm

I am a Christian female. Handel does not carry our values, she would have supported aborting Trey. She is no mama grizly, she is a liar that hates kids.

polisavvy July 12, 2010 at 4:14 pm

What? “She is a liar that hates kids.” What the h#ll does that mean? Isn’t that a tad on the harsh side?

Pine Knot July 12, 2010 at 4:16 pm


polisavvy July 12, 2010 at 4:18 pm

Yeah to which question?

Pine Knot July 12, 2010 at 9:32 pm

To your statement above. It was harsh.

polisavvy July 13, 2010 at 9:37 am

I did not make that statement. I was quoting a statement made by SFrazier. That’s why I had the quote in quotation marks. I was asking SFrazier what she meant by her statement. In case you haven’t noticed from my posts in the past, I don’t call people liars. I try to show respect.

TalmadgeGhost July 12, 2010 at 4:27 pm

Trying to string together the crazy here, please indulge me –
So SFrazier believes that Palin has betrayed her base because she endorsed Karen Handel… and that Karen Handel would have “supported aborting Trey”.

Did I miss something? Did “Pro-Choice” (which I haven’t seen evidence anywhere that Karen Handel is anyway) become “mandatory abortions”?

So everyone stay with me as we watch this here crazy train that is SFrazier… you now are against Palin because she supports someone who would have caused her to abort her youngest child???


Animator Girl July 12, 2010 at 4:28 pm

“she is a liar that hates kids.”

Where does this come from? Seriously, what led you to this belief?

polisavvy July 12, 2010 at 6:00 pm

Don’t hold your breath waiting on SFrazier to answer. She will probably not acknowledge you like she does the rest of us.

LoyaltyIsMyHonor July 12, 2010 at 7:33 pm

I guess it’s in reference to her not having children, therefore, she must hate kids. I’ve heard it before from other Handel haters.

I’m critical of Handel, but even I think that’s the most asinine thing.

polisavvy July 12, 2010 at 7:51 pm

I totally agree with you. It truly is asinine indeed. A lot of people don’t have kids for a lot of different reasons. Basically, it’s none of our business.

Provocateur July 12, 2010 at 11:19 pm

Okay, let’s see if this statement is valid: “Karen doesn’t have a college degree, therefore she hates college.”

Actually…that might be a valid statement.

Holly July 13, 2010 at 9:33 am

Who is Trey?

CobbGOPer July 12, 2010 at 3:03 pm

And it’s people like you all who keep this state down. We can’t attract african-americans to the party because of people like you. We lose women’s votes because of people like you. We lose hispanic votes because of you people. And then you bitch about why everyone thinks we’re a party of old white men. How is it any wonder when we run off people like Herman Cain, and demonize Karen Handel for basically being a girl, while ignoring the egregious ethics violations of EJ, Ox, and Deal.

This state still has deep-seated race problems (as well as what appears to be a sexist streak). It’s sad. We could run the black Ronald Reagan down here and he’d still lose to some lesser-qualified white man. Makes me sad for our state. And also makes me want to leave.

Lady Thinker July 12, 2010 at 11:04 pm

Awesome post Cobb! And your comments are right on.

Provocateur July 12, 2010 at 3:29 pm

“She’s going to need to get the word out.”

Why does she need to get the word out? Why wouldn’t the name “Palin” flash through every living soul in Georgia via ESP and make everyone give a collective sigh of “Golly…you betcha!”?

Animator Girl July 12, 2010 at 3:39 pm

Too much snark. This is ridiculous. We get it: you all hate Palin and therefore will transfer that hate to Handel. Hunky-dory. I hope your consciences are cool with supporting the ethics-challenged alternatives.

Erick, I was frustrated with you a few months ago, but now I have to say hats off to you, sir. You called it.

ACCmoderate July 12, 2010 at 3:48 pm

Just like he called Justice Souter’s fetish for being a goat f*$%@&! child molester?

Animator Girl July 12, 2010 at 3:54 pm

Oh, don’t get me wrong: I have my beef with Erick and always will, and I think comments like that are pretty much the inevitable result of become a major mover/shaker in politics before the age of 40, but credit where credit is due: his consistent support of Handel is probably one factor that kept her in contention for this long.

iamnotasocialist July 12, 2010 at 4:14 pm

Am I the only one who thinks that Handel’s tome of a mailer was a waste of her money?

Animator Girl July 12, 2010 at 4:36 pm

Unfortunately, that seems to be a common Republican thing: putting their campaign money into the wrong things, or lacking anyone in the campaign who knows how to target today’s short attention span. Whoever makes it to the general election is going to need a more competent, savvy team, that’s for sure.

MouthoftheSouth July 12, 2010 at 4:01 pm


I understand you appreciate simplicity in all things, whether it be in taxation or rhetoric. Please don’t confuse that worthwhile desire with admiration for simpletons, of which Ms. Handel certainly is one.

Tireless July 12, 2010 at 4:37 pm

It’s one thing to endorse Handel, it’s another thing to become a tool for her campaign. You should change the name of this forum to Handel’s House.

inlimine July 12, 2010 at 4:50 pm

I like Pander Pundit better.

Tireless July 12, 2010 at 4:57 pm


janna July 12, 2010 at 5:42 pm

Jeff Chapman could use some of that money too. Just sayin’.

Max Power July 12, 2010 at 5:54 pm

What are Bach supporters supposed to do?

True Grit July 12, 2010 at 6:50 pm

Handel gets an ethics probe….Why isn’t this on the front page????

Provocateur July 12, 2010 at 11:23 pm

I think it is…now.

Provocateur July 13, 2010 at 9:50 am

Why are you posting the same information on all the sites? You know this is a lie so I must assume you have a character flaw.
