Only photographers, camera crew allowed in for Karzai, Uribe events

At least two news organizations, including The Associated Press, objected and were told that the decision had already been made and was not subject to discussion.

"BETCHA" DIDN'T KNOW ALL THIS ABOUT MCCAIN'S VP CANDIDATE:


1. Troopergate/ currently ducking a deposition under oath / at her direction 7 of her aides cancelled their depositions, her husband Todd has refused to obey a subpoena to testify, the state GOP is now trying to torpedo the investigation it helped start. The story now is that Palin did not fire Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan for refusing to fire state trooper Mike Wooten who was involved in a messy divorce with Palin’s sister but that Monegan had sought to go to Washington to seek funds to address Alaska’s severe problems with sexual violence and rape. Why Palin would be against this is unclear. However, state records show that Monegan’s trip had, in fact, been approved by the governor’s office

2. Replaced the guy she fired in troopergate with someone with a sexual harassment complaint who lasted 10 days

3. Todd’s Alaska Independence Party connections, and her own participation

4. Used a state site to promote mining interests over clean water; and accepted several thousand dollars worth of gifts from mining lobbyists

5. Bridge to nowhere: being for it before she was against it

6. For earmarks before she was against them

7. Pumping money into a bankrupt Alaska dairy and then selling it off to cronies

8. Firing employees as mayor over loyalty issues

9. Asserting the right to ban books from the library and attempts to fire the librarian

10. Involved in the 527 for Ted Stevens

11. Her daughter’s pregnancy

12. Her own still dubious pregnancy/flying 3000 miles after her water broke

13. Her expensive ($25 million) screwup with building a rec center in Wasilla as mayor on land the city did not have clear title to

14. Anti-choice even for rape and incest

15. Anti-gay marriage

16. Pro-abstinence only (Tell that one to Bristol)

17. Pro-gun

18. Anti-environment: Spent $400,000 in 2007 to promote the aerial hunting of wolves and bears. Has fought designating polar bears as endangered due to diminishing sea ice from which they hunt.

19. Pro-drilling

20. Global warming denier

21. Creationist/wants it taught in schools

22. Thought the Pledge of Allegiance dates to the founding of the country (it was penned in 1892 and “under God” was added in 1954)

23. Thinks the End Times will occur in her lifetime

24. Attends a church with an anti-Semitic, anti-Islamic pastor which is also into exorcisms and other rites to protect from witches and “python spirits”

25. Charged the state nearly $17,000 in per diem travel expenses when she was living at home

26. Implied she sold the state plane on ebay but it, in fact, failed to sell there, and later elsewhere was sold at a loss

27. Charged the state to fly her daughter Willow to Juneau to tour the church where they worshipped when they were in town; charged the state for a $707 hotel room in New York for 3 days for daughter Bristol; charged the state for the family to watch the beginning of the Iditarod dog sled race and the Iron Dog snowmobile race which husband Todd won; in all her husband racked up $19,000 in state paid travel expenses, and her children Piper, 7, nearly $11,000, Willow, 14, around $6,000 and Bristol, 17, about $3,400

28. While mayor, Wasilla was the only city in Alaska which billed ($300-$1,200) rape victims and their insurance companies for rape kits and forensic examinations

29. Named Deborah Richter her campaign manager for governor to head a division which distributes dividends of Alaska’s oil royalties to its citizens. Richter had only one year of college and was a business partner of Palin in a land investment. Palin fired one of her aides John Bitney for having an affair with Richter during her (Richter’s) divorce

30. Thinks that Saddam Hussein worked with al Qaeda to attack America on 9/11

31. Favors Georgia’s admittance to NATO and military action against Russia if it crosses Georgia’s frontiers again

32. Appointed Franci Havemeister as Alaska’s Director of Agriculture whose primary qualifications were that she was a high school classmate of Palin’s and had had a childhood love of cows

33. Used a state database for political purposes by emailing 23,000 Alaskan business owners to lobby the Alaskan legislature in favor of reducing business license fees

34. Used a private Yahoo account to conduct state business; the account was subsequently hacked

35. Used the governor’s office to try to block a Workman’s Comp claim by her ex-brother-in-law Wooten by pressuring the company Harbor Adjustments which administers the program. Then awarded a continuation of the contract with Harbor Adjustments even though its bid was $1.5 million, $300,000 more than another competitor

36. Supports the Ledbetter decision which makes it extremely difficult for women to sue over pay discrimination

37. Boasted of McCain’s credentials as a reformer in an interview with Katie Couric but could not name a single example of a McCain reform when asked

38. In addition to the claim that she is Commander in Chief material because she is the titular head of the Alaska National Guard she also claimed foreign policy experience because Alaska has a sea border with Russia (more than 500 miles away from Wasilla)
