Sarah Palin is acting very presidential again!

Sarah Palin, before waiting for all of the facts to come in (mavericky!), decided to upchuck the following into her Facebook talking box:

Well, whaddya know? South Carolina’s conservative candidate, Nikki Haley, recently zipped to the front of the line in her state’s race for governor; and lo and behold, now accusations of an affair surface.

Nikki categorically denies the accusation that was spewed out there by a political blogger who has the gall to throw the stone, but then quickly duck and hide and proclaim he would not comment further on the issue. Quite convenient. [..]

South Carolina: don’t let some blogger make any accusation against your Nikki if the guy doesn’t even have the guts or the integrity to speak further on such a significant claim. And don’t believe anything a liberal rag claims or suggests unless the reporter involved has the integrity and the facts to report to you so you can make up your own mind. For traditional media to rely on an accusation via some blog entry is almost laughable, but I know the seriousness of it because that’s exactly what my family and colleagues have had to put up with, every single day, for the past couple of years.

As I said to Nikki this morning, “Hang in there. I’ve been there. Any lies told about you will strengthen your resolve to clean up political and media corruption. You and your supporters will grow stronger through things like this.”

Reaching her from Wasilla, I then joked with Nikki that I was calling her from one of the many locations the lamestream media claims I moved to. (Let’s see, I think the last I heard I was living in the Hamptons, or was it Montana? No, supposedly L.A. is where they claim I moved when I “left Todd” in their idiotic reports.)

Ha ha, the “lamestream media” got all U-Haul and shit on Sarah Palin and have been moving her ALL OVER the lower 48s with their “idiotic reports”! EVERY SINGLE DAY! That’s, like, so idiotic! And now she has to defend Darling Nikki because it’s “almost laughable” (almost!) that a reporter from a “liberal rag” only relied on a “blog entry” to write an article about the alleged affair, except, you know, he didn’t:

Former Sanford spokesman and FITSNews blogger Will Folks privately admitted a year ago to having a brief extramarital affair with GOP gubernatorial contender S.C. Rep. Nikki Haley, according to a Palmetto State Republican political operative.

Amid longstanding questions at the State House about the alleged affair, a source told Free Times several weeks ago that Folks, a former spokesman for Gov. Mark Sanford, called him in 2009 and admitted it was true.

On his blog,, Folks wrote on May 24 that he’d had an “inappropriate physical relationship” with Haley “several years ago.” [...]

The source tells Free Times that on June 26, 2009, Folks called him, near tears, admitting that he’d had an affair with Haley and urging him not to tell members of the media about it.

Furthermore, the source — who is not affiliated with any South Carolina gubernatorial campaign — says former Haley staffer B.J. Boling told him Haley had confided in him about the affair around the time Boling was working on her House reelection campaign in 2008.

Boling, who is working on the GOP gubernatorial campaign of U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett, said he didn’t want to comment about the allegations to Free Times.

“You know, it’s not something I want to talk about,” Boling said. [...]

In 2008, when Free Times asked Haley about her connection with Folks for a story about her House re-election bid, Haley became defensive. She said their relationship was strictly business. Folks did writing for her House re-election campaign when Boling left to work for John McCain’s South Carolina presidential primary effort, she said.

Allegations of an affair between Haley and Folks have been swirling around the State House for more than a year, but until today nothing about it has been published.

“There have been rumors about that,” said state Rep. Annette Young, a Dorchester County Republican, May 13. “I heard [it was Haley and] Will Folks.”

Young wouldn’t say how she felt about the validity of it beyond confirming she’d heard it at the State House about a year ago. She said she wasn’t alone.

“Ask anybody in the women’s caucus,” Young said.

Other House members have confirmed they’d heard about an alleged affair between Haley and Folks, but did not want their names to appear in this story.

“It’s not a secret,” said Columbia Democratic Rep. Todd Rutherford on May 13 while in the lobby of the legislative chambers. He added that other House members told him they’d heard such things, too.

“It’s been going around for about a year,” he said.

Former first lady Jenny Sanford supports Haley’s bid for governor and campaigned with her across the state May 14. A close advisor to her said if the affair turned out being true that it would probably pour cold water on her support for Haley.

Not that any of that is absolute proof that there was “inappropriate physical relationship” between these two rightwing, sex-drenched South Carolinians, but there’s enough there there to have the good sense not to weigh in about it like a petulant fourth-grader on your Facebook page. Also.

who has the gall to throw the stone

And we know Sarah doesn’t take to people of that kidney.

Nice shout out to Faux News.

If Palin thought the media was tough on her during the 2008 campaign she ain’t seen nothin’ yet given her absolute and utter disdain for the fourth estate.  Andre Sullivan may have Triggate but everyone else will be digging…digging…digging.

BTW, reminds me vaguely of McCain’s “we’re all Georgians now” bit ~ talk first, get facts later.

Love how she’s taking the “feminist” angle now.

I like Sarah’s Facebook missives now that she’s writing them herself, feeling untouchable and channeling Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China.


South Carolina: don’t let some blogger make any accusation against your Nikki if the guy doesn’t even have the guts or the integrity to speak further on such a significant claim. And don’t believe anything a liberal rag claims or suggests unless the reporter involved has the integrity and the facts to report to you so you can make up your own mind.

Jack Burton:

When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like that: “Have ya paid your dues, Jack?” “Yessir, the check is in the mail.”

Just remember what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol’ storm right square in the eye and he says, “Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.”

If you have the patience to deconstruct her club-footed style and bar-stool swagger, the continuous loop you hear in the background is “It’s all in the reflexes.” Both of today’s posts—this one about Haley and a later broadside damning the Administration’s response to the Gulf oil spill—had real people and real issues in the titles, but they were all about Jack Burton Sarah, and what Jack Burton Sarah would do.

Actually, on second thought, the Jack Burton comparison is way too kind. What Palin is really saying—over and over again—is “I’m Gumby, dammit.”

Everybody knows better than to pay attention to idiot bloggers on idiot blogs.

We’re supposed to pay attention to idiot half-governors on idiot Facebook posts.

As for the Hamptons, Sarah had better stay away; Martha Stewart isn’t fond of intruders, particularly practitioners of ornamental horticulture.

I bet she sits in front of the mirror and says “lamestream” to herself.  A lot.

I don’t know if Haley and Folks were hiking the Appalachian trail together, but I do know that the bottom-feeding, woman-beating, Matt Drudge-wanna-being Folks is far from a reliable source. I won’t be very surprised to learn that Haley and Folks had an Appalachian spring in their step; but I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that another goober-natorial candidate (Bauer, most likely) put him up to saying so, either.

(Wanna read something funny, check out RedState’s moaning over this today.)

As I said to Nikki this morning…
