Wednesday Warm Up – Updated

Good morning all!

I loved Gov. Palin’s interview with Greta last night. If you missed it, you can catch it here.

I hope everyone had a Happy Valentine’s day yesterday.  Since it fell on a school night we did nothing too exciting.  I made the family breakfast for dinner.  I made heart shaped chocolate chip pancakes with fresh strawberries and whip cream, bacon, hashbrowns and OJ.  Add some balloons, cards, a couple of stuffed monkeys, chocolate covered strawberries and the fact that we ate by candlelight and voila!  The very simple Firelight family Valentine’s dinner.  It was fun for us.

Celebrating a holiday sure helps take the mind off what crappy candidates we have but then again chocolate and strawberries can pretty much induce a happy denial for a bit.

Hump day news:

Hey, welcome to the party… even if you are a bit late. You are now one step closer to depression as you realize there are no conservative candidates to vote for in 2012.

I hardly call this a deal…

I see dead people

Too bad Mittens can’t do anything about his big, mean superpac…

If you are going to go there... then go there…

Do they do kung fu?  I’ve been to this zoo and I’ve seen the pandas. They weren’t doing kung fu for me though…

One word… Ebay


I do not want to live in a world where we have less nukes than China.  I say impeach his arse!

I pity the person who would do this to my child… grrrrrrrrrrr

Einstein I say, this finding is ground breaking…

Oh as a mom of a 7 year old girl who sometimes thinks she is going on 30, I thank you!!!

It’s never too late to split the vote and usher in a second term for Obama…

It’s not fading… it was never there…

Mark your calendars for Winter Grizzly Fest… it is going to be really good!

Here is a Mama Grizzly we need to get behind and support (h/t Janne)



Yay! Kelsey has a great thread of Todd pics from the Iron Dog festivities. These are for you Cruela, grab the drool bucket!


Have a lovely day everyone.  Do something good for someone else. I’m taking my mom to lunch.

    Sarah Palin is wonderful. CPAC was awesome and she looked beautiful on Greta. I hate the field more every day and I wish these 4 losers would go home. Santorum has peaked. There are Romney supporters telling Newt to withdraw. If Newt withdraws Romney is the nominee.

  • Michael

    What do you think of “The Door is Open” I believe it means I will run someday.

    • Firelight

      I think she meant that the door is open for the GOP and conservatives to beat Obama. That people are fed up with him and ready for a real conservative in 2012.  I don’t think she was talking about herself in 2012.

  • Crueladev

    Good Morning P4A Kids…

    Just starting off with a HUGE THANK YOU to Katie for opening up her house to guests for CPAC.  It really takes a very special person to invite and welcome strangers into one’s home.  Katie…You ROCK!  Wish I could have been there and finally met you…but we have none the less been through a lot together over the past year!  I do wish the C4P Birthday Party for Gov. Palin would have turned out
    a bit differently than was originally put forth and that “Special Guest”…would have been the real deal. Shame! You got to meet Charter tho..and that right there would have made the night special!

    Gov. Palin’s speech at CPAC was one for the ages.  But I do have to keep it real…about half way through… I gained a level of “pissedness” that made me want to throw the remote at the TV.  Not towards her…but more so towards those that would do all they can to deny someone from running by threats of physical, emotional, and reputational damage.  When I grew up in America…it was all about…”Anyone can grow up to be President”…Now it is about “what sorry ass loser with his/her nose stuck up the right asses can be President.”  This is NOT my America and the BEST PERSON is NOT running for POTUS!

    Okay…I said my peace…take it for what it is worth!  You All have a Good Day!
    Katie…girlfriend…YOU ROCK!!! I am Proud to call you MY FRIEND!

      Thanks, Cruela!!

    • indemind

      Hey Crue …. How would you know, Your job is to live in Other People Homes …./sarc. …*_*


      • Crueladev

        Oh ..Inde…well when you are good at something…people keep asking you back!  HA! 
        Next week I have to go back to the big house!  Life is tough! 😉  Coyotes are horrible is my understanding.  Not sure I want to take my old girl dog…but I will!  Just have to be vigilant!

  • BrianusBerkleianus

    (Good morning, Everyone!!
    I think that we may look back someday upon her interview with Greta last night as a seminal moment.
    She clearly defined the political battle lines in terms easy for all to understand.
    It is the Establishment of BOTH the GOP and the Dems versus The American People.
    Sarah is the head and leader of the Party of Freedom.
    If both political party machines go the way of the Whigs, we may remember this past night’s interview as a key and crucial moment that helped to launch the momentum for this sweeping change in the American political landscape.
    Here are the remarks that I posted last night on the interview.
    God bless!!)
    Good Evening, Everyone!
    Sarah on Greta:
    Re the obama/contraception matter: Welcome to government-mandated health care and the stripping of our liberties, and more power to the Bishop (Dolan) for not going wobbly.
    It was a very poor political choice by obama to pick a fight with a faith-filled organization.
    This is an un-American action. It blatantly violates a right in our Constitution.
    We will fight to the death vs. this kind of thing.
    NOT THIS TIME!!!  It isn’t a partisan issue.
    It is going to be an election of the PARTY OF GOVERNMENT versus the PARTY OF FREEDOM–Profound, guys: She is establishing a NEW PARADIGM: Not Democrats vs. GOP, but Government vs. Freedom!!!
    Even if SCOTUS overturns obamacare, obama and his “czars” will try to get around and circumvent such an action.
    She praises Professor Derschowitz (sp.?) again, and recalls how he came to her defense re the false accusations flung against her  at the time of the Giffords tragedy.
    Re the GOP  race:
    Guys, it was SARAH who RESONATED with us last Saturday!!
    She is head of the Party of Freedom that is opposing the Party of Government–New Paradigm!!

  • Bean Counter

    If anyone is near a TV at 8:30 am ET, Gov. Palin is going to be on Fox & Friends live in studio on the big couch. Speaking of couches, I just hope Nancy Pelosi doesn’t show up and try to get the Gov to cave on global warming.

  • DDJ58

    Thanks Bean. I turned tv on just in time. The Governor is hammering obama directly and fiercely.
    She controlled that segment with clear and distinct examples of o’s failngs. Setting the tone and leading the way. BAM.

  • Akabosan

    Andrew Breitbart is and has been a supporter of Mrs. Palin since before THE UNDEFEATED was filmed and produced.  He has IMNSHO recently been stressed for some reason.  I believe he wasted energy with his rant at OWS after his speech before the CPAC audience.  His speech was not “his usual self.”

    My suggestion is that we all pray for Mr. Breitbart, that he may “rise above,” maintain his cool and continue to use his energies as productively as he has been doing the past while.


  • Bean Counter

    And, stay tuned to Fox News, as the Gov is scheduled to be on during America’s Newsroom. Not sure exactly when it’ll happen. They’ll no doubt tease it for about an hour.

    • LS as guest

      Does this mean she’s been hanging around DC for an extra few days?  If so, I wonder what additional interesting meetings she could be having…

      • RefudiateGOPe

        She’s in NYC.  I admit that I’m curious as to what she did or who she met with on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

  • LS as guest

    Americans Elect was expressly started by Obama-supporting lefties in order to get a GOP-attracting third party on the ballot, so I fully expect that’s what they’ll do.  I halfway think Donald Trump has been feigning right for the last year in preparation for that.  But their signed up membership is very liberal, so it’ll be interesting to see how they either get them to vote as they want–or count the votes that way.

  • section9

    Very well done interview by Palin. She is forcing Mittens to be held to account for his past, which he’d like everyone to forget.

    Too bad the Mittbots don’t like this. Unfortunately, they forgot that two people can bring a knife to a knife fight. 

  • Whitney Pitcher

    I can’t watch the clip while at work, but the little bit of the transcript from Mitt’s appearance on Fox has me chuckling a bit:

    The dude has flipped flopped on abortion, gun rights etc. Plus, he’s trying to argue conservatism by touting a $2 million rainy day fund with a woman who put billions in savings. 

    • LS as guest

      What a punk Romney is, saying they should talk to her, but then saying look, she’s so easy to find that we must really not want to talk to her or clearly we would have.

      I’ll be so happy if he doesn’t get the nomination.

  • Whitney Pitcher

    BTW, it looks like Gov. Palin will be on Eric Boiling’s final show on Fox Business. It’s a shame that they canceled his show.!/ericbolling/status/169816563426410496

    • JanneMyrdal

      A shame indeed. One of the few decent n intelligent guys.

  • Firelight

    Holy smokes!

    Of all days for Palin to be doing a Fox-a-thon in live appearances.  I have been slammed since getting back into town and I am still trying to catch up.

    Gov. Palin will be on Eric Bolling’s final show tonight for Follow the Money.  If anyone hears of any other appearances today will you please tweet me?

    I would love it if she was on Red Eye!  That would make my month!

    • section9

      It’s very fitting that she’s on Eric’s final show. Sad that Bolling’s show is being cancelled.

      • Firelight

        I love Bolling’s show. I’m really sad :(

        • section9

          Which, unfortunately, didn’t stop Bolling from doing some High Pimping for his last show:


          ALERT! Palin breaking big news… the 15 minutes with Gov Sarah that may change everything.. stay tuned 10p FBN


          Two words: “Jesus wept.”

          He did. It’s in the Scriptures.

          He wept again after he saw Eric Bolling’s self-serving tweet, too, I’ll bet!

    ‘Know your enemy’ -a basic tenant of war.

    When your enemy has infiltrated every level of your society, it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish friend from foe as I found out several days ago.  For this reason, I ask Whitney to help me convey my apologies to the fish in Lake Lucile.

  • senator20526

    Morning all……Pietro Leatherchest here.. A clear, bone-chilling 66 degrees here in the great desert Southwest today…..almost time to break-out the electric blanket….Sarah all over the Fox channel last night and today…wonder what’s up? I am sure she will be heading north for the start of the IronDog…..Arizona celebrated its 100th birthday yesterday…Took Mrs. senator to dinner last night for Valentine’s Day…every place was packed….A great interview with Greta last night….That’s all for now….go forth and be safe.

  • Emily Baxter

    I. Want. Sarah. Palin’s. Shoes.

    The end.

    (PS–Sarah, if you’re reading this, what size are you?! 7? 6.5?)

    • Akabosan

      Emily, if there is anyone who could walk a mile in Mrs. Palin’s shoes, if not Firelight or Whitney Pitcher, it would definitely be you.  😉


  • indemind

    Sarah, was Absolutely fabulous, Wonderful even… in other words, Great Interviews!  … *_*

    As to the Bolling interview, under the headline “Available,” Time is reporting that:

    Essential reading:
    Palin, on Fox Business Network, says a brokered convention could happen and, if it does, she would “do whatever I could to help.”

    Read the transcript below.

    BOLLING: Governor, a lot of people are saying it can’t happen. I don’t necessarily agree with them. If one of the nominees, one of the GOPers, doesn’t get enough delegates, it could go the a brokered convention. If it does get to that and someone said, Governor, would you be interested, would you be interested?

    PALIN: Well, for one, I think that it could get to that. And I — you know, if it had to — if it had to be kind of closed up today, the whole nominating process, then we would be looking at a brokered convention.

    I mean nobody is quite there yet. So I think that months from now, if that’s the case, then, you know, all bets are off as to who it will be willing to offer themselves up in the name of service to their country. I would — I would do whatever I could to help.
    BOLLING: That’s — that’s fantastic.

    Well there you have it ladies and gentleman.

    P.S. She was also on the Five and according to reports she will also be on Gutfield’s show this evening.

    POSTULATE:  There is no longer a separation of church and state in our nation.

    BRIEF DISCUSSION:  Think of the incredible amount of power that could be amassed if your religion allowed – nay, required – you to control and direct all human activity up to and including who lives, who dies and when.

    Why, if your religion decided the earth’s population was  too high, you could and would be expected to do all manner of things to control it – forced abortions, mass sterilization, euthanasia, death panels and even worse.  Of course you would choose to do these things to those ‘stupid ones’ Palin referenced in her speech Saturday; not to true believers.  Indeed, you could sleep like a baby at nite safe an secure in the knowledge you had done the right thing.

    Tho many do not recognize it as such, the progressives have a new religion (Environmentalism), a new god (the earth), and a new mission in life (protecting Mother Earth from the ‘stupid ones’).

    Now that the watchdogs of freedom(Congress) have passed Obamacare so they could see what was in it, the Left’s new religion has the force of law behind it.
    The country that was founded because of religious persecution – the last great bastion of liberty and freedom on the face of the earth – now has a state religion, and,sadly, most of her citizens are so politically unaware and uninvolved they don’t even know it.

    BO and his buds (BO&B) are not waging war on all religion, they wage war on Judeo-christian religion so that their fledgling state religion will have a chance to grow and strengthen.  Hence, the struggle between BO&B and the Catholic/Evangelical leadership in recent weeks.  Their thinkers finally realized what ole BO&B was up to.

    As the War of the Ballot of 2012 heats up, I have concluded that none of the dwarfs left standing have the testicular fortitude to defeat such an enemy.

    There is only ONE that can accomplish that feat.  Tho I think highly of her, I’m not talking about the GOV either.

    She carried us on her back as far and as long as she could, but now’s the time for WE the PEOPLE to finish the job she started – now’s the time for WE the PEOPLE to save ourselves!

    Of course, if our Moral Compass decided to lend us a hand, I wouldn’t object. Would you?
