A QUESTION:$396,000 For a "Governor House" on her Budget, HOW MANY HOUSES DOES PALIN HAVE, AND DID THE 2008 ALASKA BUDGET BUY HER A HOUSE ?


{{Originally posted 9.6.08}}
Governor Palin supposedly has THREE houses, So I found an Interesting tidbit in the enacted 2008 Budget about a "Governor House" for $396,000...I was puzzled by this, and WHY I could not even find a photo of the Governor Mansion on Wikipedia, even though it is Listed in the National Historic Registry.The Governor's Mansion photo has been removed from Wikipedia as of Sept 7, 2008. And yet earlier this year ,in August Tadd Palin was seen giving other first ladies framed photos of the Mansion at a luncheon at the Mansion.Regardless of the Photo problems, I still found a photo of the Mansion.

So she has the House , the Family Home in Wasilla, and then the Governor Mansion that is already paid for and was built in Juneau in 1936. So I have to ask the line in the 2008 Enacted Budget about " Governor's House- $396,000" WHAT and WHERE is That House ? And is it Usual for the State Budget to fund a House for the Governor ?

*{ Page 16, line 28 of her Enacted 2008 Budget...." Governor House $396,000 ....more to come}*

Most fucking excellent piece!

I knew nothing of this. Thanks for blogging it. I think and I believe, we are just seeing the tip of the McCandy iceberg.

It's clear the media won't pursue the Sarah Chronicles -- it's down to us to do their job.

I think we can and we will do a much better job.

I am so sick of the damn lying by the right as to everything Palin. I am still stupefied the right are going with her. Anyway you may find this interestingA Palin fact check

enigma4ever said...

Patriot::
thanks for that - I will add this to the All Things Palin Blogrolla at "Questions" and use it this week in a post....I am sorry I have not been getting round to other blogs enough...am blogged down in Palingate....

Chris::
yeah...I have her budget..and there it is on page 16- "Governor House" I am dying to know if she paid off her house with these funds ( the MANSION has been paid off for years and is renovated- so there is NO explanation to the funds being spent)......
( meanwhile housing to elderly and Homeless Shelters was CUT)...

HILLBLOGGER said...

Hah! Fantastic! Enigma, if I were Palin, I'd stay away from you... hahah!

HelenWheels said...

Excellent work, Enigma!! Keep on it!

I'm just bummed reading the Glenn Greenwald post today because he reminds us that our MSM will not ever ask Palin hard questions and she will not ever be in a position to look bad.

I hate our MSM with the heat of 1000 suns (except for Keith O. and Rachel M.)

enigma4ever said...

Helen:::
so getting the Truth Out will all come down to Us, the Bloggers, the Internet Papers, and Keith and Rachel, and of course,...the Daily Show and Colbert....

This must be what Paul Revere felt like when he rode all night....geez..

Hillblogger::
we have to Internet Vet her - so be it...

sara said...

How many houses does mcLOSER have, i've frickin heard like 8-10?

Christopher said...

Now comes word that McCandy will be let out of her gilded cage for one network interview with anti-Obama anchor, ABC's Charles Gibson.

Gibson, you will recall, tried to do a number on Obama in the last presidential debate to make Hillary look good.

I wonder why McCandy isn't talking to Keith??? Or, Rachel????

sara said...

are you like sure Sara the twit Palin is gonna come outta hiding to face the media?

When is this frickin supposed interview gonna take place?

enigma4ever said...

whenever Charlies can fit it in his asskissing pandering schedule.

( Meanwhile Brian Ross is still investigating her..)

Christopher said...

Someone left this on my blog.

The next Ronald Raygun?

The first one started our downward spiral into the new moronic bible-humping dark ages.

Gryphen said...

If Sarah Palin has a Nixonian "enemy's list" i am going to assume that you and I are somewhere at the top.

Good job.

Keep digging I have no doubt there is more.

Christopher said...

Gee, I sure hope I'm on it.

I had some of the nuttiest Palinites defending her last night on my blog.

I'm sure they're on the payroll!

DCup said...

Hey, girl - When I was watching the video of the "hike" Palin took during her 7th month of pregnancy, I noticed that she talked about a "honey-do" list for Todd. She made the reference in regard to work that she thinks needs to be done to the Governor's mansion. I wonder it that's what that budget line item is for? Improvements?

Just a thought. That seems like a lot of scratch for improvements.

The video is here:

enigma4ever said...

Dcup::
thanks, and thank you for paying such close attention to that honey do- First Dude List...too funny......I saw that video too, but the Mansion is a National Historic Place- there are funds for that- it underwent renovations( modernizations) a few years back...nahhh, I am looking for that THIRD HOUSE and also her Tax returns and would also like to know if her House is paid off ? But I do thank you for thinking of that lovely video ( yeah like I could hike like that at 7 monthes when I could not even see my feet- LOL)....

Christopher:::
ahhhh so you have visitors too...So did I last night- busy little argumentative beavers eh? yeah...hang in there Internet Vetting is important work...about Palin I am sure she has more narcisstic aspirations...would not shock me at all..

Gryphen:::
we know that I love being on lists....and with such a good company- that would be fine ;-)
It's not like these people are ever going to thank us for being good Americans and asking questions :-)

Helen:::
ahhh- Ronnie sure looks tame compared to this NEW Biblethumpinghumping Generation...

Let's all keep digging folks....there is more dirt in the barn....

travelingman said...

Well I hope they add me to their fucking list. I read some of those comments Christopher and they were downright trolls. Probably paid $2 an hour by McCain and they live somewhere near a "call center" and certainly not here in the USA.

I am so freaking irritated about the polls and all the stupid shit that is going on. I am sick and tired of this crap.

PS: Can I borrow the Jesus Crist was a Community organizer button? I would like to put it on my blog as well.

Kelly said...

I hope you have cross-posted this & are getting the word out!

HelenWheels said...

This is bullshit. A poll shows Ms. Moosemeat's little bitchy speech is better than Obamas? Make this viral, peeps!!!

http://js.polls.yahoo.com/quiz/quiziframe.php?poll_id=38850

Shows palin ahead by 2%.

Is our populace learning?

enigma4ever said...

Helen::
I am not buying any of the poll bullshit- we are supposed to believe this shit- do any of know women or men falling for it ? seriously? Give to Obama- go work you heart out for him- all of us have 60 days to take down McCRazy and McMoose....hang in there...we can do this...

Kelly::
I am very much trying to get the word out about the Palin Stuff- ALL of it- spread it as much as you can....

Traveling man::
you are more than welcome to help yourself to the Pin, it is perfect...and I too am not getting stuck in the mire of a bunch of fake polls...

Fran said...

Love the button, yes I do.

the granting of the coveted interview with Charles (flag lapel pin) Gibson will be nothing but prefabricated, regurgitated, programmed shit.

I bet the repugs demanded a few things:

1- a hefty sum of $ for an exclusive interview rights

2- they can only ask the questions the repugs pre approve-

3- the repugs have final say on the editing- they must approve it first.

It won't amount to more than a rovian spin
sound bite informercial.

Better you spend the time cleaning your bathroom, than listening to this interview.

I'll guess Gibson covers such compelling topics:

• Flag lapel pin

• Is she being treated unfairly because she is woman?

• Tell us about her husbands Champion snowmole racing history.

Oh! They've run out of time....

Fran said...

Doh! That was supposed to be snowmobile... but it may as well be a snowmole.... may be more environmentally sound???

As for that $397,000....

Palin probably just needed an extra powder room. And more taxidermy animal carcasses for her collection. Ewwww

enigma4ever said...

I want to see Caribou Barbie's taxes ...and WHAT the 397,000 is for? did it pay off her house ? WHAT?

( THe actuall Gov Mansion is all paid off and renovated...so What was the $$$$ for ???)

Fran said...

I found a pic of the mansion decorated for Christmas...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Alaskagovernorsmansionatchristmas.jpeg

Also learned this about said mansion:

In 1967-68 two guest suites and one large bedroom were added to the third floor.
In 1983 a $2.5 million renovation that restored the interior decor to its original 1912 design also included new heating, electrical, plumbing and security systems.
In its current configuration the number of rooms in the mansion, excluding great halls, garages, closets, and bathrooms, is twenty-six. There are ten bathrooms, six bedrooms, and eight fireplaces, amounting to a total area of 14,400 square feet.

I'll refrain from making snarky remarks about all those bedrooms.

OH FUCK!!!

"NBC Removes Olbermann From "Election" Anchor Seat 08 Sep 2008 After months of [GOP] accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network NBC, the channel decided over the weekend that the NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host David Gregory [?!?] would anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews will remain as analysts during the coverage... As Mr. Olbermann raised his voice, his ratings rose as well, and he now reaches more than one million viewers a night, a higher television rating than any other show in the troubled 12-year history of the network."

enigma4ever said...

welll Folks we need to RAISE hell- Petition DO what ever we can to help Keith ....come on think , get creative WHAT can we do...BOYCOTT the Fall Shows that start in mere Weeks ?????that should work??
Gregory's Ratings for his piece of shit show were Rock Bottem low- and we need to confront them with that - Comeon- we can do this...

Fran::
the "Governor House " is Not the same as the mansion- the Mansion is always referred to as THE Mansion- it is a Historic Place....so that is why the "HOUSE" reference was Soooo Interesting- we need to see her taxes-- but I love that people are looking it up now...excellent- thank you...

Fran said...

M-media
S-succumbs to
N-nothing
B-but
C-crap

Boycott the Bastards!

Notice no one is upset Matthews is being cut...
only Olbermann.

Viewers need to step up & say we want counterpoint-- if they make this change,
viewers get nothing BUT bias - bias & pablum.

an average patriot said...

Fran that is really good! I do boycott them myself already!

enigma4ever said...

The Battle is between NBC and MSNBC...Write to MSNBC and threaten to boyvott NBC fall shows....we should start writing now....MSNBC we do not Boycott because that is the station that Keith and Countdown is on- it is the Fall lineup they are counting on .....
Matthews and Olbermann are the money makers for them in the Evenings at MSNBC- but NBC refuses to acknowledge it....

Christopher said...

Keith owns his brand.

What needs to happen is once his contract is up (2010, I think), then shop his brand around elsewhere.

Maybe PBS? He needs to tell NBC to eat shit and die.

enigma4ever said...

Chris:::
the prolbem is NOW though- we need him NOW..right here right now- we need to take back some of the power on this- because it is about damning ANOTHER election....we can not have this...

thepoetryman said...

$396 thousand? That house (mansion) is worth a hell of a lot more than that... Or should I say the price would be a lot more if a normal joe was buying it.

enigma4ever said...

No see the thing is the "Mansion "in Juneau is already all paid for- has been for years, and maintenance for it is under a different listing- and it is a National Historic Place-so it is paid for differently - and the modernization and renovations were done years ago....THIS one Line item 396,000 it says Governor House- I don't know if that is for one of HER Other "Houses"......( like the one that was and is her family home that was worth 112,000 and is now worth 500,000 - is THAT house suddenly paid off ?....we need to see her taxes...)
