no more editing Palin’s Wiki profile

Even if your Wikipedia user name is ‘YoungTrig’ you can Not edit Sara Palin’s profile again.

The 30 edits – mostly positive – that were removed/downplayed just minutes before her VP status was announced Friday will have to suffice. The brother-in-law probe/scandal was downplayed and glowing traits were spotlighted, but editing one’s own page is a no-no in Wiki’s terms of use, so the jig is up on this piece of political shenanigans.

Ah, mass media-loving Neptune’s deceptive, veiling tendencies are so very useful in Politics, si?

NPR has the story here:


Perhaps someone acting on Palin’s behalf – or against her since this sort of squirrelly activity looks bad – knew her infant son’s name is Trig and could’ve used ‘YoungTrig’ in order to make it ‘seem’ (Neptune) that it was Palin doing the deed. I suspect she was too busy to make the edits herself.

Criticizing Hillary Clinton back in March for “whining” will make whining about her own political treatment a bit of a hypocrisy problem if Palin intends to indulge on this or on other issues. The phrase “deer in headlights” may be replaced by “deer in spotlights” any day now for the hockey mom.

As Jilly noted in the comment thread after ‘some notes on Sara Palin’s natal chart’ her Downs Syndrome child may be her grandchild. My leanings are not to  ‘go there’ at all when there are children involved, yet it illustrates that no one is perfect ENOUGH to be in politics with its microscopic lens and inclination to distort what it finds.

If claiming the child is Palin’s attempt is to ‘hide’ (Neptune) her daughter’s pregnancy, I still think it should be off limits, but maybe that’s just me. Too many families have had, have, and will always have similar sad dilemmas and it’s not fair grist for political mills, imho.

Well, perhaps Wikipedia will bring out more details soon on this attempt to spruce up Sara Palin’s profile for immediate public consumption and admiration. But why should she need it?

  1. Hi Amy, I know what you mean. A game of chess, for sure, being played under our snoots.

    She was also picked to help with values voters, NRA-ers, pro-lifers, and more…several for the price of one, i imagine (and the GOP hopes – their 8-year record IS a bit of a stumbly peg.)

    But since i’m one of those ‘elections are decided by who counts the votes’ gals, if she’s to be a heartbeat from the presidency with her lack of experience, there must be reasons lurking behind the velvet screen.

    You seem to have it, and I also want to have So Much confidence in women voters’ on-the-mark intuition, but when women got the right to vote? they put a numbskull into office. ;p

  2. I don’t see how this is a blow to the Obama campaign. If any of those angry Hillary voters are voting only based on gender (which is the politics behind this pick and is insulting on its face) they deserve a president Palin. I really don’t believe anyone who cares about women’s rights will be fooled by this obvious play for their vote.

  3. Yep! that’s why i put ‘Heath Palin’ in my post.

    Technically a birth chart should have the ‘name at birth’ even if married although i don’t always follow that for clients who are married or have a name different from their birth names..they don’t seem to appreciate the difference! And generally it’s only an issue for women for obvious reasons.

    Now someone like Puff Daddy/P Diddy/___ or the Artist Formerly Known as Prince….who knows ??
    How very Neptunian of them, i say! ;p

  4. Heath was her maiden name; Palin is her married name. Husband Todd is a Ya’pik? Eskimo.

  5. Finally we know how a woman will become a US president! ;-)) McCain will die and voila

    It’s a big blow to Obama campain, although I don’t care anymore.

    Palin, is it her maiden name or her husband’s? Sounds russian, but Alaska was russian anyway so go figure.
