Sarah Palin’s Tech Troubles

Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin may be working the whole naughty librarian vibe, but she’s apparently having a little bit of trouble with the internet. After John McCain revealed that he had chosen the Alaskan governor as his running mate, editors discovered that several new users had spent hours leading up to the announcement making 30 flattering edits to Palin’s Wikipedia entry. While some Wikipedians gave the pro-Palin editors awards for their work, many others made accusations of internet sock-puppetry. Editing on Palin’s page has since been restricted.

Governor Palin’s internet troubles aren’t limited to Wikipedia. Parts of her old gubernatorial campaign web page PalinForGovernor.com redirect to JohnMcCain.com, but most sections of the site are currently down. SarahPalin.com had been directing visitors to her old site, now it displays an error message.

Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama has had some problems of his own online, but the McCain campaign’s getting (allegedly!) busted on Wikipedia and being unable to properly maintain the websites for their Vice Presidential nominee are probably the biggest tech screwups of the election so far. Nice job guys!

  1. Palin is a breath of fresh air. You can explore more about her at http://www.sarapalin.com

  2. Yes, a breath of fresh air and not a Washington insider. Has more experience where it counts as a Mom and has had a middle class background. Knows what the majority of this countries people deal with on a day to day basis. And yes, has had to deal with some of the problems that a lot of us encounter, a teenage daughter that is pregnant and a child with special needs. May not solve all the problems of the world, but not one President or Vice President been able to do that either. And most of us have had to deal with on the job training. She will get my vote! Oh, and by the way her running mate is a hero in my eyes!!

  3. I am a working mother myself. I, however, chose to only have 3 children because I knew that I could not give more the time and attention they deserved. I am already sick of hearing Sara Palin preach about family values when it is pretty obvious where her priorities lie. I am also a special ed teacher and I know that her baby is going to need a lot of extra attention. Apparently , Sarah isn’t up for that right now..
    Her behavior is so typical of the Republican way – bring these babies into the world , but don’t give them or their young mothers help afterwards. Gotta save that money for the cost of war or the fortunate few at the top of their tax bracket. Did you get a load of Cindy McCain’s outfits at the convention? The “saffron” colored one was estimated by Vanity Fair to be worth $300,000. This is disgusting.
    This isn’t a regular “job” that we’re talking about – she has a very good chance of ending up being our president.
    Before people jump on her bandwagon, they should look beyond the cutesy outfits and examine her beliefs. They are actually rather scary.

  4. I just want to start of by saying I’m a republican and I love my country and I’ve served it proudly. Seriously I have to question would MCain have picked Gov. Palin if Obama had picked Hillary Clinton ? It’s ironic to me because why did McCain wait so long to pick a running mate? He had sealed the deal long before the democratic candidates. It seemed as if he was waiting to see what Obama was going to do. It hurts my heart to see that my fellow republicans are to blind to see that our past repesentitives and current has left this country in turmoil. Wake up people both republicans and democrats are in debt,loosing homes, laid of from work,paying to much for gas and here’s the shocker I’ve worked with Gov. Palin for two and a half years, And she is very ruthless and cold-hearted. Gov. Palin absorbs information from people and uses it to control them (example: Family Secrets, Love intrest, Finacial situations,Health and Sex life). She has on several occasions referred to people of non-white orgin as less equal racially.Gov. Palin has been observed going on highly expensive outings with out the presence of her husband but of another while on state time,money and resources. It has been mentioned to other State Officers that her sisters ex- knows a lot about her unethnical misconducts. And that’s why she went after him when he left her sister, She tried to discredit him before she felt he would do her.If McCain dies can you handle A Barbie Model as our PRESIDENT ? I just want the best candidate and right now I hate to admit it but Obama appears to have what it takes. I started really respecting him entirely when he called her and congradulated her and wished her the best. And then issued publicly that absolutely no one from his organization will speak on the Palin pregnacy issue or he would respectively dismiss them. And then when Gov. Palin gave her speach for the first time on national television she slammed him in a way that we who all know her knew she would. We saw it coming a mile away. Please help me and approx. 4,000 of my re-directed republicans put a stop to this because they think we are very stupid. We respect Mr.Obama because he just didn’t pick Sen .Clinton to gain votes he followed his heart and my friend McCain has None and Gov. Palin would snatch it out as soon as the oppurtunity permits. THAT’S JUST HOW A ” Barricuda” IS. thank you all for your time and please let’s do the right thing!!!!!!!

  5. We’re not Politicalfuse, brah!

  6. This may not be “political fuse”… but Ms. Bridge & State Officer both have some very compelling arguments… One would be very shallow to deny that! I have a child that has a mental illness and there is NO WAY I could be away from home as much as she is, especially with the baby so young!!!

    What message is she REALLY sending?

    Buying into this cheap, not-so-well put together propaganda just shows how easily influenced some Americans can be…

  7. I have been a republican since was 18 years old. I did not grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. I grew up in poverty. But that does not make me a democrat. I have never been more proud to be a republican than I am now. GOD BLESS SARA PALIN….thank god she is as some think..PRO WHITE…Is there anyone out there left that cares about the white race? Our country was founded and built on christianity and we now have a president that will not swear on the bible. He will not pledge alligence to our flag. Am I the only one that sees something wrong wth that? In my eyes Obama is not eve an american. He could even be the anti-christ. Read the bible. I have never been one to complain..but I am so sick of everyone treating Sara Palin like a nobody. The only reason Obama got elected was because everyone wanted to make history again and again and again. What about all the great things white people have done????????

  8. Glenn Beck has come up with 5 pledges (listed below) designed to get America back on track. Present these 5 pledges to any candidate running for office, from the president on down, and if they disagree with any of the pledges, vote them out and find another candidate.

    The 5 Pledges to Congress By Glenn Beck

    1, I believe in a balanced budget and therefore will vote for a freeze in government spending until that goal is realized.

    2, I believe that the government should not increase the financial burden on its citizenry during difficult economic times therefore I will oppose all tax increases Until our economy has rebounded.

    3, I believe then four decades of U.S. dependence on foreign oil is a travesty therefore I will support an energy plan that calls for immediately increasing usage of all domestic resources including nuclear energy, natural gas, oil, and coal as necessary.

    4, I believe in the sovereignty and security of our country and therefore will support measures to close our borders except for designated immigration points so we will know who is entering and why and I will vehemently oppose any measure giving another country, the United Nations, or any other entity, power over U.S, citizens.

    5, I believe the United States of America is the greatest country on earth and therefore will not apologize for policies or actions which has served to free more and feed more people around the world than any other nation on the planet.
    Sara, you are the only one I could think of who would meet all 5 pledges.

  9. I too am a little sick of hearing abour our saraPalin.She is a quiter!!! She or so I have read is not the perfect church going person in the world. I do not know why she carrys her cute little boy around like a sack of feed to everything she goes too. Also her coffee cup on one of her video’s is not exactly what I would vote for. I am sure she could use some history and stuff so she doesn’t have to write on her hand like a 5th grader.

  10. Is it true that sara Palin herself has had an abortion!!! I read it on her web site.

  11. I don’t get it. How is it when George Jr went to war without going to Congress Palin kept quiet. How come when George Jr gave 150 Billion to save AIG without asking Congress or the Senate she kept quiet. Oh ya he’s a Republican to, whats Dear old Sarah going to do when the oil Companies. she let have free rain in Alaska cause a land oil spill what she going to do Blame pres Obama for her mistake. How is it when the Tea Party Group is saying Pres Obama is trampling our rights She’s lambasting him. Maybe Mr. Obama should do like George Jr and Dick Cheney did make protesting sites atleast 2miles away from the White House. Why didn’t Mrs. Palin speak out about the CIA using torture and it was sanctioned by George Jr. If Mrs.Palin is so concerned maybe her and that Tea Party should start a grass roots movement to Repeal the 22nd Amend. So Dear George and Dick Cheney can get voted back in to finish this Cntry off and so they and all the Republicans can make money again
