Subject: What does Sarah Palin remind you of?
From: Big Al Whittle
Date: 10 Sep 08 - 06:29 AM

Ewan Maccoll once told me that he thought 75% of all communication between human beings was non verbal.

So taking it as read, what a politician says is unlikely to be any real clue as to how things will be, when they're elected - what impression does this lady make with you.

Someone on another thread says scary, but she seems to hold no terrors for many Americans.

I know what she reminds me of, but I don't want to pollute the waters at this stage. I'd be interested to hear what the world outside my village is seeing in her. There is no denying her impact.

Maybe it's because I'm from the UK, but I find the choice of names for her children to be quite revealing: Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow and Piper. Hmmmm.... Is this an attempt at being trendy, or what ?

I have come across Willow before, as a name, but not Bristol....although I know place names are becoming used more now. Are "Track", "Trig" and "Piper" often found as first names in America ? As they are an apparently religious and church-going family, I am surprised that the Palin children don't have more Biblical names, for instance. I'm just curious, really.

Given her religious fundamentalist roots, I was surprised at both 'Willow' and 'Piper' for her kids' names, since both are most familiar from television fantasy shows about witchcraft. Perhaps there's something Palin hasn't told us.

She actually looks like one of my aunts by marriage (when auntiie was quite a lot younger). Said aunt was such a regular fibber that no one in the family ever believed a word she said without two other people backing her up.

Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow and Piper

I can't remember what the first one is for but Bristol is named after Bristol Bay in Alaska; Willow is named after the state something or other tree; Piper is named for the small family as in Piper Cub; and, Trig is a Norse or something word which means something I can't remember...warrior or something.

She reminds me of zealous evangelical women who have on blinders in that THEY are the only ones who know and everyone else is wrong when all they spew if the church rhetoric without ever asking any questions of it. A Barbie-doll-cheerleader who thinks putting others down is so cute. Her hair reminds me of the Mormon extremists who were recently in the news in Texas.

Bristol Bay and Willow are place and town names in Alaska. Piper, of course, is a plane. Don't know about Track, Trig-

Just Found This Explanation:

"Adedicated runner, she named her older son Track because he was born during that sport's season 18 years ago.

"Her youngest is 4-month-old Trig Paxson, whose first name is Norse for "true" or "strength" and whose middle name comes from one of his mother's favorite spots in Alaska.

"Her three daughters are Bristol, 17, Willow, 14, and Piper, 7.

"Palin said the eldest girl was named after Bristol Bay, where the family fishes.

"She hasn't explained the other girls' names, but there's a town in Alaska called Willow and Piper brings to mind the Piper Super Cub, a bush plane popular in her state."

I hadn't, Peace - but I have now, thanks to YouTube I have now discovered these jolly chappies: here

I've also discovered that there are 95 Bristols in the United States I don't think it can have the same slang meaning in the US as it does in the UK !

According to that White Pages webpage, Bristol is No. 17,544 ranked first name in the US. No. 17,543 is Bozidor and No. 17,545 is Chikako. So now you know....

I should have better things to do... but I'm going back there now to look up how many Tracks and Trigs there are.

I found this explanation at BBC News:

Her five children are named Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and, last but not least, Trig Paxson Van Palin. According to the Washington Post newspaper, Track was named after the course of the sockeye salmon the family fishes off the town of Dillingham, while her eldest daughter's name comes from Bristol Bay, an area known for its salmon fisheries. The name Willow relates to the state bird, the willow ptarmigan, and a nearby town, the paper says, while daughter Piper shares her name with the family's small plane. Trig is the Norse word for "brave victory", the Post adds.

Anita Bryant - I think that is a good parallel.

I'm one of the posters who have called Palin scary--I haven't changed my mind.

On Diane Rehm right now they're discussing this Charles Gibson interview coming up this week. Ted Koppel says he can't win--if Gibson starts with hard questions he'll be accused of having an agenda, and if he asks soft questions, all of his colleagues will be on his case.

This, of course, is because the media are letting the Republican party control the situation. They need to get over that and treat Palin like any other candidate. She is under-qualified and the Republicans know it, hence the dread of interviews and the full-fledged assault on the media. Once the media actually get full access to Palin, her feet of clay will be visible to all.

The original post asked, 'what impression does this lady make with you?'

Just looking at gets me worried. Her hairstyle is 40 years out of date. Women were wearing their hair that way in the 1960's. And I don't like the non-verbal signal of the cutesy little tendrils which she allows to snake out of the beehive. Looks like she is heading to her job in a sleazy bar.

In the high-tech town where I live, this lady could not even get a good-paying job. If I encountered her on the street with her children, I would be worried for the children.
