"I Am Sarah Palin" - A Grassroots Initiative!

I have just launched a new initiative, inspired by these 2 videos:

I would like to compile a much longer video, comprised of women and men, of all races, ages, and religions. It will be uploaded to here on YouTube.

If you would like to participate, here's what you need to do:

  1. Take a video of yourself, no more than 15 seconds long, with whatever background setting you feel uniquely describes YOU! It might show where you live, your children, your family, your friends, or whatever inspires you! You can say whatever you want but to be eligible for submission, it must include these words at some point: "I AM Sarah Palin".
  2. Go to this website and upload your video (see directions below).
  3. Once uploaded, a web link will be provided to you. Please send this link to: IAmSarahPalin@live.com
That's it! The link you send will enable me to download your video. Once I have a sufficient number, I will compile them into a single long video, add a great soundtrack, and upload it to here on YouTube. For now, enjoy the videos already uploaded there!

Upload Directions:

Video files are quite large so they can't be readily sent via e-mail. As such, a slightly different process has to be used to get your video to me. Thankfully it's very simple!

Go to MediaFire.com and click on the large green button near the top of the screen:
A dialog box will appear. Click on the grey button in the middle:
You'll be prompted to select which file on your computer you want to upload. Select it and press the "Open" or "OK" button on the dialog box. This will return you back to this screen, where you just need to press the green "Start Upload" button:
The menu on the right side will change. Click on the second option, entitled "My Files (main folder) :
Your file will start uploading to the server. Just be patient and wait until it's done.
Once it's entirely uploaded then click on the "Copy Link" button:
This will store in your computer's memory the web link I need to access your uploaded file.

Go to your e-mail program and send an e-mail to IAmSarahPalin@live.com In the Subject or Body of the e-mail paste the link you copied. There are many different ways to do this, depending on your computer. On Windows machines you can press Shift+Insert simultaneously. You can also go to the top menu of your browser and choose "Edit" and then "Paste".

In your e-mail, please provide any of the following optional information that you would like displayed on top of your video segment:
  • Location: City/Town -- State/Province -- Country
  • Your first name
  • Your age (completely optional!)
If you're having any technical problems, just send me an e-mail and I'll do my best to help you resolve them!

Hopefully more than a few videos will be submitted. Together we'll put together something really fantastic and positive!

If you'd like to help spread the word about this grassroots campaign, then here are the links you need:

I will post this project on MidnightBlue. It is a great idea, and when McCain wins, I hope to meet up with you at the inauguration.

As a fellow Western Canadian, I am ashamed that you are pro-McBush and pro-Ly'in Palin. Last and final time I will visit your blog.

Interesting that you work for Macdonald Dettwiler. Do your views represent that of your employer as well? Does your employer know that you're posting such hateful rants while they're paying you to do ... you know, actual work?

But as to your point, according to you, all Western Canadians (about 10 Million people) are supposed to share your political views or you're ashamed of them? Do you realize how fascist that sounds?

I would strongly recommend you read this article, written by an ardent feminist and unabashed Obama supporter: http://www.salon.com/opinion/paglia/2008/09/10/palin/
