Wasilla Alaska’s foremost quitter and cult compound developer, Sarah Palin, has issued a very predictable, ghost-written, facebook response to the illegal seizure on early Sunday, of a flotilla of vessels attempting to bring humanitarian supplies to the 1.6 million people being illegally besieged in the Gaza Strip. In it, she criticizes the U.S. media for “reporting one side of the story,” something we’ve also been doing a lot of at firedoglake. Sarah’s take is different from ours, though. Allow me to walk us through hers.

Beginning May 16th, I wrote a series of diaries here that sought to heighten awareness of the renewed and refreshed strident militance being shown by the Israeli government toward critics, and sought to bring more attention to the flotilla of boats and ships determined to lift the illegal siege of Gaza.

Discussion of some of the newly without work due to the BP Oil Disaster

Last night on Countdown, Keith Olbermann credited Firedoglake’s report yesterday on a government powerpoint presentation, written by Scarecrow. Our report focused on a 2001 report on joint government and oil industry field tests that showed a deepwater blowout would create giant underwater oil plumes – something the government denies exist in the Gulf today.

The well that now threatens to become the biggest oil rig disaster in history is also an example of the way that big corporations keep us in the dark about what thay are doing an how they are doing it.

A young Army Major’s Masters thesis is making the rounds. Some believe his essay presages the persecution of Christans by the anti-Christ Obama. Others see in his thinking a message that goes beyond the dangers of Christian millennialism and touches upon the perils our country encounters by endorsing or cursing any fundamentalism, without engaging the issues through clear thinking.

Since it’s obvious that the Democrat Party is not the vehicle for change in America (it serves only the continuation of the status quo), will FireDogLake.com support Green Party candidates in 2010 ans 2012? If not, will it provide a legitimate reason why not?
