... Palin's big meeting was with Billy Graham.


Posted on Sunday, 12.06.09 RALEIGH, N.C. — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had dinner the other day with the Rev. Billy Graham, which is sort of the Southern equivalent of having an audience with the Protestant pope.


Getting a nod from Reverend Billy is a big deal.

I wonder if she realizes she is meeting a long time Democrat.  I wonder if she just assumes a southern preacher is going to endorse her conservative views. 


Brother Billy is getting way on up there last few times I saw him on TV he was looking not so well he really is no longer the power player in religion/politics that he once was.

nnsecu,


Palin is a rogue when it comes to politics. She has to be. She's squeaky clean morally so the only thing left is her politics. If she parts her hair on the other side tomorrow, the media will address this for us as "some phony political move".


Whether Billy Graham is a Democrat or part of the Martian Party, it won't make a bean of difference. The article says Billy and his Son like her and complimented her for her motivations. A nod from Billy and Sons is a good thing. If you think the Conservatives don't appreciate this gesture, think again. It's gettin' like Ketchup and French Fries... theyre good together.

OH trust me she's not squeaky clean.


Your side just likes to salivate on the idea of it. Delusional... Ridiculous.

You are raving. You post has no sense of reality whatever.You are living in a dream world.


Palin resigned from the governorship of Alaska partly because her ethics violations got her into trouble.


thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/03/p...


Her decision follows a week of extraordinarily bad publicity, from within her own state over ethics inquiries and across the national landscape as top aides on her vice-presidential campaign and supporters have been engaged in a highly public feud that has spilled out in vociferous tones online on blogs and on television. Bloggers in Alaska, critics of the governor as well as former Palin supporters, suggest also that pending releases of e-mails among the Palins were about to expose her to further questions about her finances and governance issues.


In fact, Governor Palin signaled in her nearly breathless news conference that more trouble may lie ahead, as she cited battles that could cost her millions of dollars, a pile-up adding on to her burdens.

I am not expert on all things Sara Palin, unlike the liberals on this board who eat, sleep and breathe her.


However, if she were in any significant violations wouldn't she still be eligible for prosicution? And further wouldn't there actually BE an active prosecution?

I suspect Palin and someone else played "Let's Make a Deal."


You may recall that one of the 'selling' points of Palin as VP material was that she had taken on the Good Ole Boy GOP in Alaska (very recently) and unseated an incumbent republican governor.  I guess you might say she went 'rogue.'


There is an long understood rule in the GOP, known as the 11th commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.   Palin broke that rule, and I suspect there were interests in the Alaskan Republican party who intended to make her pay for her 'indescretion.'  Those plans were probably just put on hold while she dabbled briefly in national politics.  Once the 2008 presidential election was lost, it was back on, and she was likely informed that her tenure in Alaskan politics was near the finish line.  She could step down, maintain her squeaky clean image, or she could face the wrath of some very powerful, influential, and unhappy players in the Alaskan GOP.

French Fries, what are you some type of Euro loving commie socialist? All us red blooded patriotic TRUE AMERICANS started calling them  FREEDOM FRIES in 2003.


Not sure exactly what is rouge about writing a book, going on a tour, and trying to keep your name in the political light for as long as you can till the next election.  It seems "Rouge" has become the rights "Change"


The parting the hair line is the same thing Hilliary said in the primary.


 


I am sure it is important to some conservatives to get the nod from Billy, it will only reinforce their view of her as the Rouggy Religious Moralist Conservative candidate.  But as many on the left are learning the image you are sold on and what you get in office are not the same.

Ms Palin, a licensed Christian weight-lifter, will have to bump noggins with the Rev Franklin Graham (the Rev Billy's boy), and Franklin's zingers, such as--"The god of Islam is not the same God of the Christian or the Judeo-Christian faith. It is a different god, and I believe Islam is a very evil and a very wicked religion."--demonstrate that Ms Palin and the fundagelicals are peas-in-a-pod.

I mean, Ms Palin did presciently observe that "I can see Mecca from my front porch."
*******

"Wesley told the early Methodists to gain all they could and save all they could so that they could give all they could. It means that I consider my money to belong to God and I see myself as one of the hungry people who needs to get fed with God’s money. If I really have put all my trust in Jesus Christ as savior and Lord, then nothing I have is really my own anymore."
