You people at the HuffPo are never going to gain any respect until you start publishing articles with some semblance of rationality. Trying to make it seem Okay for Linda Biegel to publish a picture of Downs syndrome baby Trig to try to make her political point is just deplorable. In addition she is an embarrassment to liberals everywhere for filing these ridiculous frivolous ethics complaints such as the one for wearing a jacket with Arctic Cat on it. All of them have been turned down without need for judicial review and it is making Ms Biegel and the Democratic party look like chumps. They ae certainly behaving like chumps.

If you want to be a real newspaper, write something that is decent.

Your ignorance shows that you know nothing of the compliant or of Alaskan politics and law.

By the way Huffington Post is a blog not a newspaper, if you wish to comment without displaying your glaring ignorance, educate yourself on the facts of the matter.

Speaking of Alaskan politics and the law

SCOTUS finds for Alaska in Coeur Alaska, Inc. v. Southeast Alaska Conservation Council, et al. (26 June)

http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinions/08pdf/07-984.pdf

this means the mine can proceed.

progress in the TransCanada pipeline project (11 June)

http://www.gov.state.ak.us/news.php?id=1901

Since the hydrocarbon and mineral resources of Alaska belong to the citizens of Alaska - it's a wonder she hasn't been impeached already.

I could see your point if the face of Trig were superimposed on the body of, say, someone wearing a dunce cap sitting in the corner. But that is not what the image was... and only those people who worship Sarah and have all the RNC images rotating in their screensavers would know where the original came from.

You can see Sarah was in the image. And Eddie 'red shirt' Burke was in the image. It was on a single blog for a single day. Leave it to C4P to go on a crusade about this non-issue. Oh, but thanks, because Celtic Diva's fundraiser met its goal right after C4P and Meg made the story national news!

MORAL COMPASS……..Oh yes the GOP corner the market on THAT!! What a foolish thing to say in light of what has transpired the last few days.

Sanford now back from MIA and his mistress in Brazil is paying his state back for his trip down there last year . Today we find out he organized his own trade mission AGAINST US federal policy.

The commerce department had not arranged this as he said, more lies, he arranged the trip through a Brazilian official. The Brazilian government refuses to pay their national debt to the US and other countries, claiming that the US should not have lent them so much money in the first place.

Trade is banned with Brazil.

Then there is Ensign PROMISING to make an EXTRA effort to marriage.

Now there is the republican Nevada Governor Gov. Jim Gibbons………….

Infidelities with TWO women at the same time!

http://blogs.usatoday.com/ondeadline/2009/04/nevada-governor-in-divorce-court-accused-of-infidelity-with-two-women.html
AND………….a smackdown of a cocktail waitress!!

Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons wants a federal judge to shield his phone records from a former cocktail waitress who accuses him of accosting her outside a Las Vegas restaurant in 2006.

Of course there are always Larry Craig, Mark Foley, David Vitter, Ted Haggard, Newt Gingrich, Dick Cheney, GW Bush..one could go on forever……to set your “moral compass” by

Palin has become a living breathing SNL skit, replete with her goon Meg Stapletounge.

Thanks Martha12, that was good reading! Another REPUBLICAN Governor with no morals. Even better is to see all the juicy information Wikipedia has on him. Like Sarah, he also has a legal defense fund.

C'mon, the dems have a list too. But we're godless libruls, so it doesn't matter. Unless, y'know, they impeach us for lying to dried up yet salivating little men with clipboards & waterwings and a neat new title.

Linda Kellen Biegel - certainly did not know her name before, but will be keeping an eye out for her work now. Nice work. Satire is always appreciated. Cuts right thru to the heart of things.

Thanks Sarah.

You'll find her under the name she blogs -- because that's how she's known, even to her friends who mention her in their blogs. Palin made a point, as always of pubishing her actual name and town, and now Celtic Diva is being harrassed by Palin supporters. Which was the point, since she has just purchased, for nearly $6000, the emails between Palin and her homophobic, misogynic radio host buddies. If the emails are not redacted, they will tell a tale of political intrusion into private lives.

Yo - Us New Yawk eyetalians aim to please.

Just don't go using what you've learned to earn your psychology degree or your experience in the mental health field to analyze the grammar in some of my posts. I'm afraid you might discover I've acquired some brain damage over the years from my experiences.

Keep up the good work you do to make the world a better place. We all benefit from it.

I'm a fan.

So is palin gonna start beef with everyone? Thats a good plan
10:00 AM on 06/26/2009
I'm pleased the blogger apologized. The joke was in completely poor taste.
10:29 AM on 06/26/2009
where in the article does it say that she actually apologized?
It said she was "called on to apologize".
I believe her response is in a different article on HP.
Maybe you should read that.

As usual Ann.........The blogger did not apologize as there is nothing to apologize for.
By the way , she has raised %100 of her funds to expose this governor.. Palin's begathon in contrast does not even have 1/5 or theirs.

Oh please. She trots out her kids whenever necessary then is outraged when a photo, that is public not private, is photoshopped to make a point for someone else. I hope the pundits are right and she doesn't run again in 2010 - as far as I'm concerned Sarah Palin's 15 minutes are up and she and Elizabeth Hasselbeck can go start their own talk show with Rush Limbaugh. Please go away, Sarah.

Palin will do anything to keep herself in the news, using her kids, no problem. She doesn't deserve any respect as far as I am concerned, stay in Alaska and shut the heck up. Do you work as Gov. and stop the 2012 campaigning.

The manipulated photo was on a local AK blogger's site WITH the story. The people at C4P, who do not live in Alaska, seized on the image alone without knowing the story and decided to defend their precious Sarah against it. They jumped the gun and now the egg is on their faces.

It's worth noting that Palin is traveling this week - visiting troops from Alaska who are on deployment. She's currently in Kosovo. It's also worth noting that no one in the media found her trip to be worthy of coverage. None. Nada. She's self-reporting on Twitter. (Thank God for that Journalism degree.) "What's a poor girl have to do to get a little press around here?? Hey, I know, Meg! Let's beat up a blogger!!" ROFL

It's worth noting that whatever Palin does is self serving.

It's also woth noting that whatever Palin does that is self serving backfires and everybody see through it. So the self serving "I Have Foreign Experience - See Me I Can Be POTUS Tour 2009 is not important. It will be news when she screws up.

Tweet us when she takes a bath in the town's cement pond (water fountain).

The local ADN hasn't really much acknowledged her trip. Very nice, finally off of the front page,
07:18 AM on 06/26/2009
I suspect if Palin weren't such a joke to begin with....this kind of thing would pass along unnoticed...

but anyone who could sit and give those risable answers to intelligent questions in that Couric interview, for example, can't let one more reason to laugh at her slide.....

but this righteous indignation schtick......that gets pretty close to sounding whiney and petty.....

oh and to the guy who did the photoshopping....just tell Palin to grow a hide or stop shopping her kids around to the media when it suits her.

Don't apologise...

it was an iconic representation of an opportunist, in over her head, and totally unaware.

Wow, Meg Stapleton gets 2 things wrong in 1 statement. Linda is not the official blogger, and there is no such thing as the Democrat Party.

If Alaska is failing, no wonder the USA is on the verge of Bankruptcy.

The United States has been hijacked....... why is DC NOT standing up for what's right for our Country?

What does this have to do with the article?
What does you post even mean?
