Sarah Palin's Favorability Rating Goes DOWN

Filed under: Media MinutePolitikSarah Palin

sarah palin popularity is down

We're not surprised to hear this AT ALL.

Following the Arizona shooting, Sarah Palin's favorability rating has hit a new low at 38 percent.

Innerestingly enough, overall Sarah is not getting blamed for the shooting, but her popularity has taken a hit from her video response released last week where she accused "the media of manufacturing a 'blood libel' against her."

Looks like Palin supporters have immediately begun making the effort to repair as much damage as possible.

Here's what website Conservatives4Palin had to say about an online "moneybomb fundraiser" that they've started up:

“The purpose of the money bomb is to remind her of the strength of the support that she has in the face of the death threats and blood libel sent her direction in the aftermath of the Tucson tragedy."

We're thinking it's gonna be tough for Sarah to recover from her most recent popularity hit.

Given the way in which she's dealt with everything surrounding the Arizona shooting, our sympathies do NOT lie with her.

Food Bank In Gabrielle Gifford’s District Receives $18,000 In Seven Hours

It’s amazing and humbling to see the deep empathy the country exudes after a tragedy.

After representative Gabrielle Gifford’s husband mentioned the name of the Community Food Bank in Tucson, Arizona in a statement, the charity saw a huge influx of donations — more than $18,000 in seven hours.

Bill Carnegie, the CEO of the food bank, says that donations mostly come from the local area but that the $18,000 came from all over the country.

Said Bill:

"They started at 8 a.m. this morning, and just keep pouring in from everywhere. Most donations are around $50, so you can imagine the number of phone calls and activity on our website that have been going on to generate $18,000."

Gifford has been a long-time supporter of the food bank and has helped raise money for it in the past.

Bill continued:

"She and her staffers came over here on December 18 and spent about two hours here thanking our staff and our volunteers for everything they were doing to help fight hunger. She's a really good friend, a longtime supporter, and we're just devastated."

This tragedy has been heartbreaking, but it's heartwarming to see this kind of outpour of support.

For those interested in donating to the Community Food Bank, here's their address and phone number:

3003 S. Country Club Rd.
Tucson, AZ 85713
(520) 622-0525

Maroon 5 Protests Arizona Immigration Law, Will Not Tour There Either!

Filed under: Music MinutePolitikInspirationAdam Levine

Amazing! Glad to see they're against such a RIDICULOUS law!

Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine has revealed that when he and the band start touring their new album, Hands All Over, they WILL be joining the long list of talent that is boycotting Arizona due to the new immigration laws!

He says:

"I did an interview in Tucson on the radio. [The host] asked about playing there. I said it was a really difficult decision to make because we have fans out there that are being penalized essentially by us not playing, so it's a really difficult decision to make. It really kind of comes down to what feels right, and it really didn't feel right to play there and reward Arizona for what we thought was a really bad decision. We're just citizens. It's always good to look at everything that we're talking about, discussing, debating or standing up for as an issue, not to grandstand, necessarily, our beliefs, but kind of just follow our hearts, as cheesy as that sounds, and say, 'Look, this is how I feel, so I'm going to do this.'"

It's not cheesy! Like you said, it's the right thing to do, and your support is very much appreciated, bb!

Thanks for taking a stand!
