Anchorage Daily News Cites Draft Sarah Movement!

NOTE: Special thanks today (August 16) to the Alaska visitors from: Eagle River, Juneau (2), Anchorage (3), Ketchikan, Fairbanks, and Nome. Yes, we're trying to "steal" your fine governor, but America really needs her! If you'd like to know anything about the DraftSarah Movement, please leave a comment or send me an e-mail at: Thanks.

The Anchorage Daily News ( regularly cites the "Draft Sarah Palin" Movement. Today, Trish at, one of the best blogs in America's Last Frontier, brought my attention to a front-page ADN story about Sarah . . . and us in the "We Love Ya, Sarah" circle, one that's getting a lot bigger. It notes the Fred Barnes piece, as well as Les Kinsolving's fine endorsement of Sarah for V-P. It also mentions Elepantman's blog: and the indefatigible Sanity102, who wrote the piece about Sarah's "gorgeous" family and her "trust me" voice. Sanity blogs at: Our fondest dreams about the Draft Sarah effort are coming true, and it's an exhilarating feeling. Go for it, Sarah. Thanks to everyone who "took a flier" on Sarah, and now is looking forward to a happy landing on November 4, 2008, Election Day. Here's the ADN piece (authored by Terry Carr):

"Palin as No. 2 on the Republican ticket? 'With a smile that could melt all the tundra of the Arctic Circle – as well as absolutely astounding political success and integrity – Gov. Palin ought really to be seriously considered by whomever wins the Republican presidential nomination as an absolutely glorious running mate.'"

"So runs Les Kinsolving’s column at, another in the widening pool of Palin-praising on the Internet, a good bit of it in blogs. More and more, her name gets mentioned as a potential Republican vice president nominee."

"Another example of Palin-praise: Fred Barnes’ Weekly Standard column -- which spins through a lengthy, glowing review of Palin’s public career and says she 'is now the most popular governor in America, with an approval rating in the 90s, and probably the most popular public official in any state.'”

There’s a Draft Sarah Palin for Vice President web site, and The Spoof (warning: some rough language and other material at this one) spoofs a Mitt Romney-Sarah Palin ticket. “Have you SEEN this lady’s family?” a poster on a blog says. 'I’ve just watched a bunch of her campaign for Gov. ads; her family is GORGEOUS and her voice practically oozes ‘trust me.’”

Note: There are several other bloggers -- some of whom chalk up a thousand-plus visitors per day -- who are on the edge of diving into the pool of Sarah supporters. C'mon in everyone. The water's fine.
