If you can't do just that- then obviously your support for Palin is extremely weak and not based on facts.

What's your opinion of Sean Parnell? ( Never hear too much about him)
Well WHAT is the fascination with Palin??? She didn't win, she is not V.P. of the U.S. She is the Governor of Alaska so why so much concern with her. The things to be concerned with are the economy and what the current regime is doing. Why such ridiculous comments about her? And no, not a fan of hers, not a fan of either party.....just can't understand the pre-occupation with her? Some people need to get a life.

The concern is not because she is the Gov. of AK but rather that she was a VP candidate who seems rather disposed to position herself as a player in the national political arena.

Nothing wrong with that. Plenty of other governors have done it, including the prior two Presidents. What? Is someone afraid she might win at the national level?

I realize the concern is not because she is the Gov of AK., my point is that is her position for now. It's a bit ridiculous that people keep her name going. So if she is a player in 4 years they should worry about it then. Right now the main concern needs to be focused on the economy and getting out of this mess. And in all honesty, if she does become a key player her dimboism is really not any worse then Biden not knowing anything about the website he is over or the O with the 57 States. They are ALL one in the same is what people just don't realize.

I think you said it all right there, they obviously do fear she might run and win So many other things to be concerned about. Incredible!

I don't believe I said there was anything "wrong" with it; just that she is no longer a local personality specific to AK.

I think that some of them are afraid of her running and winning, sure.

I'm not. The Republican Party is done with her on a national level and the Libertarians are too smart to touch her. I'm sure she'll garner some wingnut 3rd party support should she try for POTUS in the future, but it won't be enough to win an election.

From last night's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, this has got to be among the finest pieces on television in recent times -

Think Progress Jon Stewart unloads on CNBC’s Rick Santelli for ‘bail[ing] out’ of Daily Show appearance.

Thank george for that!
Remember, Clinton ruined a dress. Bush ruined a country!
It took Bush 8 years of ruining this country to the bottom of the pits. Do you think Obama can bring about change overnight? You people are dillusional!

Just as delusional are people who believe that ONE MAN or even ONE POLITICAL PARTY is responsible for the collapse, or conversely, that ONE MAN or ONE POLITICAL PARTY can change it.

Once again, Warpt said it best:

Blondie, because of your caption under your name I looked at your profile since I've seen other postings on the Pet section. Gotta tell ya, your dogs are beautiful! BTW I signed for being "against" their ridiculous ban.
