North Idaho woman given first 'Not Sarah' award at Dem convention


Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, is said by colleagues to be a leading contender to become the new director of the Idaho Department of Insurance.

The wife of freshman Democratic Congressman Walt Minnick, A.K. Lienhart Minnick, handed out the first-ever “Not Sarah” award Saturday morning at the Idaho State Democratic Convention at the Coeur d’Alene Casino in Worley.  The award was given to the party’s vice-chair Jeanne Buell, also of Worley, for her work within the party.

Minnick, giving a speech to the Women’s Caucus at the convention, said that Buell is someone who inspires other women “without saying ‘you betcha,'” a phrase for which Republican superstar Sarah Palin is known.  Minnick praised Buell for being someone who is well-read, inspiring, and actively working to improve the Idaho Democratic Party.

Lienhart-Minnick encouraged the women to pass the award around to others on a yearly basis, which Buell promised to do next year.

    Walter Minnick needs to stop giving out silly awards and worry more about his reelection campaign.

    What is this, high school? Do the ID Dems realize how small and pathetic they are? Sarah is completely in the brains of liberals. They can’t stop talking about her, they have to attack her non-stop and honestly believe there are people laughing with them.

    Re: “I Can see Russia from my house”

    This award just goes to show their intelligence (or lack of), as it was Tina Fey, NOT Sarah Palin, who made that statement about Russia.

    I hope Minnick is not as stupid as either his campaign or now his wife, both of whom have attacked Sarah and Michelle Bachmann. Easy way to piss off your would-be supporters (like me) who are just LOVING the fact that progressives (read commies) despise him. That and that the GOP actually went with a La Raza lawyer, there’s two good reasons for me to vote for him, until this shit.

    Apparently some people have a problem with prosperity……………..

    No, she’s not Sarah.

    She’s a socialist political hack whose great accomplishment was marrying a Congressman.

    She’s a nobody who managed to get a little press by slinging mud at a true feminist, Gov. Palin, who is likely to be the first female US President.

    Holy bitter-beer-face, now that I’ve seen a picture of Buell I’m wondering if AK Lienhart Minnick isn’t in fact making fun of Buell. Because she is certainly NOT SARAH, a man in drag yes, SARAH, oh hayl no!!!

    Gov. Palin, who is likely to be the first female US President.–

    Seriously? A person who couldn’t stand the heat in the Gov. of Alaska’s office and quit half way through? You seriously think she’d tolerate the pressure and criticism that comes with the White House? Besides she wouldn’t give up her million$ to be president, she’s all about the money, honey.

    it. was. a. joke. (but I bet y’all got a good laugh when your buddies emailed you pictures of President Obama as a “witch doctor”) hypocrites.

    “Holy bitter-beer-face, now that I’ve seen a picture of Buell I’m wondering if AK Lienhart Minnick isn’t in fact making fun of Buell”

    Heh, got that right. Ms. Buell could in fact be Bebe Buell, who apparently the years haven’t been kind to since the days she was splitting between Todd Rundgren and Steven Tyler.

    “Sarah Palin correctly said, “You can see Russia from land in Alaska.”

    She tried to use that to say she had foreign policy experience. What a joke.

    And the fact is, you can’t really see Russia from Alaska. You can only see a faint rise of land over the horizon from Little Diomede in Alaska.

    I love it! Let’s hope this is a new trend and that all Dems start doing “Not Sarah” awards. Thanks! Shared on facebook! :)
