Going away? Not likely

After quitting as Alaska's governor, Sarah Palin's new book, Going Rogue, arrives on bookshelves in November. "Rogue" was her affectionate nickname as the VP candidate during John McCain's failed Presidential run.

I guess it was so cute and fit her that she's capitalizing on it's success.

Known as the champion of the GOP's position to derail and cause failure with anything President Obama says or does, she coined the phrase, "Death Panels" to describe his health care reform project. And, if after listening to her speak, if your own child doesn't have "Down Syndrome," you actually feel guilty.

I wonder if she has a chapter in her book, "How to Quit Your Job," or "How to Let Everyone Down"?
Instead of "going rogue," I wish she'd just go away.

I'm not homophobic, Just don't like a weenie pretending to be a wiener.

That mean I don't like you chief for pretending to be a human. You are a computer chip in a toy Chinese doll.

Ben, Tim Pawlenty of Minn. is the repubs. best shot.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:45

Nemo,

Really? You sure sounded homophobic to me. I mean you're the one who keeps bringing such things up.

Projection?

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 10:45

Sure you do BenDover for Bush a third term.

By: Dragon on 10/22/09 at 10:46

"...he's been in office less than 12 months ..."

Thank goodness he wasn't president on 9-11-01. We would still be waiting for him to make decisions about what to do in response.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 10:46

"This was not unexpected."

Hmmm...but the article says it rose more than expected...do you know the definition of "unexpected"? lol

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 10:49

You're right Dragon. I'm so relieved that we left no stone unturned and found Bin Laden and brought him to justice.

Oh wait...

Maybe Jones should hire you as GM slacker...at this point I'd take Sid as GM over Jones...

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:50

Gdia,

It was unexpected to them...it wasn't for myself and others.

But whatever.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 10:50

Just a statement of you fears chief. You say that you are not gay, but that fear that you maybe keeps haunting you.

Now go project yourself.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:51

Gdia,

More than expected means an unexpected increase, does it not?

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 10:52

Then again, maybe Obama wouldn't ignore a warning about terrorist flying planes into buildings and the whole point is moot.

Hindsight is 20/20. Dragon's original statement was asinine.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:52

Nemo,

Well, it appears you are the one who fears that you are gay, since you continually bring it up.

I am happy and content with myself...so project onto someone else please.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 10:53

You said it was NOT unexpected, meaning it was expected. Pay attention.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:55

Gdia,

"Then again, maybe Obama wouldn't ignore a warning about terrorist flying planes into buildings and the whole point is moot. "

Well as you said, it would be premature to make a statement such as this without knowing for sure...hence we can only guess at what Obama would do in this situation until presented with it.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 10:55

Chief, why didn't you point out how the previous months filings were down?

Never mind, rhetorical.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 10:56

Dragon:

Then maybe if Obama had been president or for that anyone else on 9/11 the building may still be there. We will never know.

Now stop wagging yourself. It is indecent of you.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:56

Gdia,

I didn't think that was necessary as it was in the article.

But if it makes you feel better, yes the previous filings were down, during the summer. You are correct.

And they probably will be down around December as well...assuming the Christmas shopping is good.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 10:58

Gdia,

"You said it was NOT unexpected, meaning it was expected. Pay attention."

My mistake...I should have said "this was not unexpected...by myself and others."

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 10:59

It doesn't make me feel anything either way, I've come to terms with the fact that the numbers will fluctuate. Apparently you haven't.

Watch out, the sky is falling again!!

No problem Chief. I'm here to correct your mistakes...which is a full-time position.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:02

Gdia,

You would have made a great schoolmarm.

By: slacker on 10/22/09 at 11:02

Chief couldn't be gay, they are not allowed in the military.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:03

Nemo,

Please keep yourself on track...now we're moving into animals?

chief is not telling.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 11:05

Why thank you Chief...I appreciate that...now, I want you to write "I will not post untruths" 1000 times.

Chop Chop

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:05

Slacker,

Oh they are in the military...just not vocal about it. Neither do we ask about it.

And as long as I don't have to see what they do, it's irrelevant to me.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:06

Gdia,

I will if you will.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:07

Nemo,

I've already told...but as usual you weren't listening. I am not gay...but since you are projecting your own insecurities onto me, you neglect to listen.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 11:07

Don't lie Chief, it doesn't become you.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 11:07

I am chief. Just a comparsion between you and a cow. But I see how easy it is for you to be confused.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:08

Gdia,

Sorry but I don't lie. Unlike a lot of politicians, I'm not good at it and so don't bother.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:09

Nemo,

Again with the farm animals. First homosexuality and now animals.

Nemo, you are worrisome!

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 11:11

Then don't tell chief. Keep telling yourself that you are not.

By: slacker on 10/22/09 at 11:11

We are gonna have to get dick658 in here again, to restore order.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:11

Nemo,

Too late, I've already told my sexual preference. Ironically, you have not.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 11:12

You post untruths all the time, and you always will as long as it furthers your agenda. Hence, you are not being totally honest by stating you will stop.

Maybe you really are that naive. Oh well, to each their own.

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:17

Gdia,

I disagree...but as you say, to each his/her own.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 11:18

Who let the parrot in? Whoop Whoop

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 11:20

It it that important to you chief. I have known for years that I am not gay, but you are not so sure about yourself. You get so defensive when question. I suspect that you have these fears.

As I have said before, there is nothing wrong in being gay.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 11:23

Verbal Cartoon

Fact

The sun rises in the East.

Old news chief.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 11:28

When the world get to real for chief, he post everything.

By: gdiafante on 10/22/09 at 11:28

File that under "who cares".

Not only does the sun not rise in the East, it promised a nice sunrise, but it's cloudy this morning, so the sun is a failure. I can't wait until 2010 when the sun is voted out of the solar system.

Ben you wouldn't seriously vote for a winking beauty queen who can't even finish out the term for which she was elected to be the leader of the free world. Our nation really is dumber than the average 5th grader if this is so.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/22/09 at 11:29

You got that right gdia. LOL

By: chiefpayne568 on 10/22/09 at 11:33

Nemo,

But still funny!
