Yeah, we've all been victims of her 'coherent sentences'. To quote a right wing columnist, "My cringe reflex is exhausted."

One-On-One With Sarah Palin - CBS Evening News - CBS News
Quote:
"That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it's got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade -- we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation."
Sarah Palin endures cringeworthy CBS interview - Telegraph

Kathleen Parker, a columnist for the Right-wing National Review, who was a keen advocate of Mrs Palin, wrote: "I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.

Now you are making an overly broad statement simply for dramatic flair. I never said that any discussion is preordained. We are discussing a very specific subject and in that yes, until you can show me that there has been a real paradigm shift in American politics, I am certain nothing will ever change. And despite all of his procclamations to the contrary, Obama aint that change. He might like to think he is, but both political party's machines (the ones that caused all of this mess to begin with) are still as firmly entreched today as they were before the election.
An example of this not being change. I receive through e-mails periodic updates from my local congressman John Campbell (R) Ca. In his latest regarding the cap and trade vote that passed 219-210. Obama was meeting with Dem congressman up to the morning of the vote offering them along with pelosi up to 9 figure pork spending in future bills for a yes vote on this one.
If you would like to argue this fact call the congressman as im not saying i have verified this claim but i have never found misleading statements in his e-mails before.

John, that bear appears to either be breathing fire or throwing up...
You speak of yourself obviously.

They are directly comparable. Except Sarah is far more verbally adept, for those who care to listen. I didn't say she is a genius. Nor is BO, nor Joe B nor John Mc, for that matter.

Oreos sound pretty good but I had a half a piece of brownie/walnut pie at the cafe earlier so no more sweets.
I just had a Hershey Bar...love those things.

She does have lots of energy...she can even beat the big O guy in a foot race lol, and she probably could since he is a smoker. I still can't figure out the fascination that those who don't like her have with her ?

Now why on earth is she trying to challenge the President to a foot race? To get her mug in front of another lower 48 camera?

I am thinking that for the races, it could be sort of like the greyhound racing where they have that little fake rabbit going along the side, only it could be a camera instead of a rabbit. That could give Palin just the advantage she would need
