    HOT OFF THE PRESS IN ALASKA!!! And if anyone listened to the Ed Shultz Radio Show from Ancorage today... their dislike of Palin was documented down the line reason by reason. They liked the attention being brought to Alaska but could not believe anyone would pick someone as green and flawed as Palin as a VP candidate. It's a "Country Last" move by the McCain camp!

    ‘Alaska Women Reject Palin’ Rally is HUGE!
    September 14, 2008

    I attended the Welcome Home rally for Sarah Palin this morning. Hooo. It was an experience. About a thousand (maybe) hard-core Palin supporters showed up to hear her speak at the new Dena’ina Convention Center in downtown Anchorage.

    After shaking it off with a good double shot of espresso, and a brisk walk back to my car, it was time to head to the Alaska Women Reject Palin rally. It was to be held outside on the lawn in front of the Loussac Library in midtown Anchorage. Home made signs were encouraged, and the idea was to make a statement that Sarah Palin does not speak for all Alaska women, or men. I had no idea what to expect.

    The rally was organized by a small group of women, talking over coffee. It made me wonder what other things have started with small groups of women talking over coffee. It’s probably an impressive list. These women hatched the plan, printed up flyers, posted them around town, and sent notices to local media outlets. One of those media outlets was KBYR radio, home of Eddie Burke, a long-time uber-conservative Anchorage talk show host. Turns out that Eddie Burke not only announced the rally, but called the people who planned to attend the rally “a bunch of socialist baby-killing maggots”, and read the home phone numbers of the organizers aloud over the air, urging listeners to call and tell them what they thought. The women, of course, received many nasty, harassing and threatening messages.

    So, as I jettisoned myself from the jaws of the ‘Drill Baby Drill’ crowd and toward the mystery rally at the library, I felt a bit apprehensive. I’d been disappointed before by the turnout at other rallies. Basically, in Anchorage, if you can get 25 people to show up at an event, it’s a success. So, I thought to myself, if we can actually get 100 people there that aren’t sent by Eddie Burke, we’ll be doing good. A real statement will have been made. I confess, I still had a mental image of 15 demonstrators surrounded by hundreds of menacing “socialist baby-killing maggot” haters.

    It’s a good thing I wasn’t tailgating when I saw the crowd in front of the library or I would have ended up in somebody’s trunk. When I got there, about 20 minutes early, the line of sign wavers stretched the full length of the library grounds, along the edge of the road, 6 or 7 people deep! I could hardly find a place to park. I nabbed one of the last spots in the library lot, and as I got out of the car and started walking, people seemed to join in from every direction, carrying signs.

    Never, have I seen anything like it in my 17 and a half years living in Anchorage. The organizers had someone walk the rally with a counter, and they clicked off well over 1400 people (not including the 90 counter-demonstrators). This was the biggest political rally ever, in the history of the state. I was absolutely stunned. The second most amazing thing is how many people honked and gave the thumbs up as they drove by. And even those that didn’t honk looked wide-eyed and awe-struck at the huge crowd that was growing by the minute. This just doesn’t happen here.

    Then, the infamous Eddie Burke showed up. He tried to talk to the media, and was instantly surrounded by a group of 20 people who started shouting O-BA-MA so loud he couldn’t be heard. Then passing cars started honking in a rhythmic pattern of 3, like the Obama chant, while the crowd cheered, hooted and waved their signs high.

    So, if you’ve been doing the math… Yes. The Alaska Women Reject Palin rally was significantly bigger than Palin’s rally that got all the national media coverage! So take heart, sit back, and enjoy the photo gallery. Feel free to spread the pictures around (links are appreciated) to anyone who needs to know that Sarah Palin most definitely does not speak for all Alaskans. The citizens of Alaska, who know her best, have things to say.

    If I put together a group of anti-Obama people in Illinois does anyone care? No. It is just as worthless as this article.

    Well hopefully the attacks will get loud and mean, that does seem to help. Are these attacks coming from femanazis or normal women?

    Thanks for posting the video. Glad to know she is not adored by all. I wouldnt want her to get a Messiah complex. I have yet to see a group of conservatives protest Obama or do an anti Obama rally.

    Its really wierd to me. Republacans left the dems alone to worship Obama for the DNC convention. The dems protested outside the republcan convention and some got in to make loud noise.

    No republicans that I know of have ever had an anti democratic rally or anti Obama lord of the liberal cause rally, but libs get together and protest McCain, Bush, Palin and anyone else who dares to speak up for conservatives or republicans.

    I think its odd.

    But at the end of the day it shows me that Sarah Palin is a normal human, she is not like Jesus, and no one voting for her is under that delusion, she is not the God of Alaska or the Messiah of all women. She is just a lady who is running for office.

    That's what I thought, a bunch of rabid "Code Pinko" Obamabots being coverage by someone who "...grew up on the East Coast and attended a New England liberal arts college." and who thinks that someone with an opposing viewpoint deserves to be shouted down rather than allowing them to exercise their First Amendment Rights. Oh the hypocrisy! :rolleyes:

    From what I saw it was all Obama bots. It was not like conservative women who normally vote for republicans just cant do it this time because of Palin. Its nut cases who are in their version of a church element worshiping the one true Lord Obama.

    You could be right, but I saw a whole lot of pink signs, with suspiciously familiar slogans, so either there were a lot of 'Code Pinkos' there, or there's something "female" about the words they use, the style of writing, and the pure venom and vitriol that they both seem to like to throw at anyone who doesn't share their bent for murdering their own children while trying to admonish someone else for fighting for freedom.

    OH I saw the code pink signs too. They are like cockroaches, they are everyplace. But the majority were just plain old Obama worshipers. I would seriously bet money that there was not one single republican or conservative who would normally vote for McCain but just cant do it now because of Palin.

    The whole event was a crock, they have to be uber moron's to think it was anything more than just another obama rally. I think its funny how this thread is posted like women in general dont like Palin :eek: when its just a plain old Messiah convention just like any other messiah convention.

    they should Re name the post. Liberal women who are into baby killing and other liberal causes dont like Palin, and they wouldnt like any other person on the republican ticket either!

    They don't like Palin mostly becasue they have jumped ahead of Lord Messiah Obama in the polls and in the electoral college. If they never got a bounce and they were ten points behind, they wouldnt hate Palin so much.

    Just as expected they hate success. Because Palin is successful in what she set out to do, they hate that more than they hate her.

    Its sad really.
