Knowing that if someone got into the White House to do wrong, that the VP knows her way around a carbine and Aimpoint Comp2, and could defend herself, that's AMERICA. That's a big "HA!" to Euroweenies. I love it. Smiley

Encouraging photo, but without context, not as useful as it could be.

It's from a video where she was shooting with troops on a visit to Iraq. At a range, of course.

According to Wikipedia (yeah, I know  rolleyes), "She hunts, eats moose hamburger, ice fishes, rides snowmobiles, and owns a float plane. Palin holds a lifetime membership with the National Rifle Association."

Looks pretty good to me.

Good cheek to stock weld, nice grip on the fore arm.  Looks like she needs to get her right elbow up.  Can't tell whether she has hearing protection in or not.   grin
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

Meh.  I shoot M16 with my right elbow relaxed a fair bit, too.

I read that she used to go moose and elk hunting.  Bet she used something with a bit more kick than that M4...

I now officially want a Mooseburger.
He never brought you an unbalanced budget, which is a perennial joke. He never voted himself a wage increase and, to this day, gives back part of his salary every year. He has always voted to preserve the Constitution, cut government spending, lower healthcare costs, end the war on drugs, secure our borders with immigration reform and protect our civil liberties.

How could the governor of Alaska possibly be anything but pro gun.
I'm from Texas, what country are you from?

Is it asking too much if she participates in 3-gun matches?

Wait and see.  She is a nutjob Westerner and I do not trust her.  Always remember that she is from a culture of corruption, sloth and the Welfare State.  Hell, the government out there gives people a check outright.

I think her past in that politically inbreed culture will bite her.
I do not smoke pot, wear Wookie suits, live in my mom's basement, collect unemployment checks or eat Cheetoes, therefore I am not a Ron Paul voter.

I think you missed quite a few smilies in there.   From what I've read (even prior to today's announcement)  She's been going through Alaska's .gov corruption like Carrie Nation through a saloon.

Ha-Ha you fool!  You fell victim to one of the classic blunders!  The most famous is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia".  But only slightly less well known is this: Never go in against an Alaska Governor who you haven't researched when elections are on the line!  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA-(breath)-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

(Oh, wait, both cups were poisoned.  Damn).


Seriously though El T, she's not a nutjob (nor are most Westerners, particularly here on APS), and she's well known for fighting against the corruption and cronyism that permeates AK politics.  We'll see how she stacks up against welfare-statism, but her record of solid conservatism on just about everything else is rather promising.

"Westerner"?  Did you mean West-Coaster?  As far as I'm concerned, from here in Virginia, everyone in Indiana is a Westerner too.

As for "welfare state", that's not a very good description.  Welfare implies money for the worthless, deadbeat, drains on society so that they will vote for your party. 

As I understand Alaska, they have a state full of natural resources but such lousy weather that very few people want to live there.  So the state government pays everyone, man woman and child, equally to live there.  That's not welfare, that's kickback.  They get the money out of the ground, what better than to give it to The People.

He doesn't like Southerners, either.
