If that is what you want more power to you and her if she can carry it through, but personally after just watching the last couple of years, I really doubt it. I usually am on the side of the underdog, but this one has surpassed any expectations in the wrong direction, and I have learned when to let it go.

So NOW they weren't her original ideas. I thought the left said they were dumb ideas. Dumb when she had them, brilliant when someone else has them. Yes, it does border on Palin derangement syndrome for the left.

She took on the old boys club so I can see why she would make lots of enemies. I don't look at the attacks on her as anything other than attacks from those in power who can't stand anyone going against their machine.

Love the mentality - keep it coming and we will all be out of our misery soon enough!

What happened to the New Testament, where Jesus said the "eye for an eye" (and the world goes blind) was wrong and that we should "turn the other cheek"?
Revenge only brings revenge.
Sure, forgiving might not result in totaly erasing terrorism and wants for revenge, but it would make the rest of the world able to respect the one doing the forgiving. Less revenge actions => less revenge actions coming back, plus respect from the rest of the world (and as a result, help in fighting the ones terrorising).
Right now, no side is respected by the majority of the people in the world. No side. Worth thinking about...

It is a new concept, "Honesty in politics". It would be nice if the rest of them tried it.

I don't know where you get your information. Your post is a bunch of crap.

Do you understand at all that the issue Rance was talking about is NOT drilling for oil??? Are you aware that he was talking about a natural gas pipeline? What do you know about the bridge? Nothing, that's what, or you wouldn't squawk about it like ignorant freak that you are.

You saw something on television that looked and sounded good to you, and as a result you're blaring about things you know less than nothing about. You're as dumb as a box of rocks and people with your mentality are the reason why some of us (and it isn't just liberals) are concerned that you'll put this uneducated hysterical lying hot mess in some sort of position of power in the future.

I really need to stop looking at this board before I've had my first cup of coffee in the morning because some of you idjits are so damned dumb that you give me a headache. This janelle idjit's posts are so stupid they could have been written by the soon to be thank f-ing GOD governor herself.

See, here we go again. This is why I keep warning you people from down south to be careful about your support for Palin based on what you here in the press, when you don’t really understand how she’s f’d up local Alaska politics.

The bridge mentioned here is not the same “bridge to nowhere” that you heard about in the national media during the campaign. This is a bridge designed to connect Anchorage with another area that holds a significant percentage of the workday commuting population. From most polls, an overwhelming majority support building the bridge so no one here is criticizing her on that issue.

Nobody has ever criticized her for wanting to build a gas pipeline or expand resource development either. Most Alaskan’s (except for the kooks) support that. It’s how she went about doing it, which turned out to be a complete circus. First, she ran for governor in part saying she would stick it to those big, bad, oil companies. Then she crafted legislation to build a gas pipeline that she promised would exclude the major producers, most notably Exxon, even though the foreign company that ended up winning the bid to build the line said it couldn’t be done without them. Then, when the project looked like it was going nowhere, Exxon stepped in to save the day, but Palin and her gang now try to play it up as if it were somehow their doing all along.

There have been numerous other example like this too, where she promises one thing, does the exact opposite, then says something again completely non-factual and we are simply supposed to roll over and believe her. At best she's just another double-talking politician, at worst she's insane.

There, see, Met read that post the same way I did. We are pretty much on opposite sides of the political spectrum so it should show all you Palinbots that she has blown her support from all sides up here!

I never said it was perfect, just that's how it works.

Yes, do you note a pattern here? I'm referring to those who tear some politicians apart and leave the others alone; something I can't figure out. Too bad Palin wasn't a cabinet member of the current administration, her dimboism would have fit right in.
