Let's not forget her rant about not shaking Oliver Stone's hand at SNL die to his support of Chavez. Can't wait to see this defended. :D

Todd Palin has surprising tie to Venezuela-owned oil company


As a vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin condemned Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez as a "dictator" and called for "energy independence ... to allow us to be less and less reliant on someone like Hugo Chavez."

Venezuela, one of the top suppliers of oil to the United States, "wanted to use energy sources as a weapon" under Chavez, she said.

But Palin's anti-Venezuela sentiments do not appear to extend to her husband, whose snowmobile racing team was sponsored by a division of Citgo, the retail arm of Venezuela's state-owned oil and gas company.
After the race ended, Sarah Palin went on to appear in a video spot for the Iditarod sled-dog race standing in front of a snowmobile bearing the Mystik logo.

A competent politician would not do that. But then her incompetency was never really in question, was it?

I'm sure she didn't think anything of it. She probably doesn't even know who Citgo is owned by. Thats what happens when you know nothing about the world outside your comfortable little bubble (the US or house, take your pick).

In other news. Obama likes pepsi over coke 9/10 times.

It was founded in 1910. Citgo was incorporated in America. Who cares, its not as if chavez started the company and then Palin jumped on as a board member. Contrary to popular belief not everything is politicized, if you can get a sponsorship for your sports team you are going to take it if you need one.

I would expect someone who is such an expert on energy to know who owns Citgo. I mean, she spent the entire campaign telling us how much of an expert she was on energy.

Her office knew about this.

while i really dislike palin and what she represents, to see this a hypocritical is stretch. ironic, yes.
I just feel it just shows (even more-so) how clueless she is about even the world that directly affects her.

Yeah but it's fun to watch her defenders. THey'll be here later when the right wing blogs tell them what to post.

Wake me up when there's "New and improved Palin hypocrisy."
I don't think she'll have any more major screw ups like we saw in the presidential campaign. She has way more handlers helping craft her image now.

Her husbands race team was sponsored by a well known company incorporated in America. The only ones who give a damn are the liberals frothing at the mouth. I bet she has filled her gas tank up at a citgo to, maybe even bought a twinkie...

But Chavez is EVIL! He even talks crap about the USA of all places!

It's just fun to see that there is a connection between those she condemns and those she, well I'll keep it PG :p

Obama has talked down to china about manipulating their currency.. I bet he wears/owns stuff made in China :eek: hypocrite?

Obviously, when 5 front page threads are dedicated to Palin.. yes, no one is frothing at the mouth at all. :rolleyes:

I think you mistake entertainment for "frothing at the mouth".
No, its quite obvious that the dems are more preoccupied with nailing Palin to the wall when she shouldn't even be a subject of debate (shes not even a candidate to my knowledge) then worrying about what their constituents are ****ing up in congress (health bill anyone?)

You're right... the only explanation can be is that Democrats attack Governor Palin rather than admit a huge failing (43%) by someone else =>

sorta like when the repubs were frothing at the mouth when Glenn Beck cried on the air because somebody in the media called an obama appointee a "czar"....or when Beck cried because somebody mentioned Mao :rolleyes:
