All I Want for Christmas Is an Enemies List

From a really entertaining little piece in the Immoral Minority detailing how a handful of specific bloggers -- in the spirit of the season, you're welcome to refer to them henceforth as the "Four Wise-Asses" -- have actually been banned from attending any of Sarah Palin's Going Rogue events:

"My first hint that something may be wrong down in Who-ville was when I was asked for my ID, not once, but twice. Then as Dennis and I were about to sign in, and the lady behind the desk took our picture with a little digital camera! ...

Almost as soon as I had my picture taken I felt a hand on my shoulder.

I turned around and came face to face with a local police officer who quickly apologized and then informed me that I was on the 'banned list.'

'I am on the WHAT list?' I asked.

'The banned list sir, I am going to have to escort you off of the property. This is a private event.'

On my way toward the door I stopped to wait for Dennis so that we could leave together, however the police officer again placed his hand on my shoulder and insisted that I continue on toward the exit. ... Outside Dennis joined me and told me that he had learned that both he and I were on the banned list, along with Shannyn Moore, and that they even had pictures of us to reference for quick identification."

As Gawker puts it, "This story is a who's who of the Wasilla Hillbilly's pettiest feuds."

How can I get on that list? I wish someone would tell me I can't listen to Sarah Palin speak.

I caught this story last night, and did a little light reading into Mayor Palin's tenure. Interesting to note that then-Mayor Palin tried to fire any city employees who appeared "disloyal" to her, basically attempted to steal the land that she wanted in order to build a new hockey rink, and dragged the city $20M in debt to pay for it (which is about the amount of the city's entire annual budget). Then she built on the land before the city had clean title, subsequently tying up (after her term expired) another $1.3M in lawsuit. She raised taxes to pay for the rink, and cut funding for the city's museum while attempting to remove books from the public library that she disagreed with (that came out during the campaign, but its nice to remind everybody).

She dragged a small city down for her own pet projects. Can you imagine what she would do to a superpower?
