The explanation is really quite simple. Even I understand it.

Millions of Americans find "thinking" to be about as inviting an activity as spending an hour in the dentist's chair without novacaine. It's a very painful and unfamiliar process for them and they'll tend to avoid it if there's any way they can do so conveniently. Fortunately for them, an entity has arisen to relieve them of their burden.

More conservo math

I think in four years her 2008 happenings will be long forgotten.
Eight years will produce alot of voters who where to young to vote.

She relishes well with the young vote and represents what the repubicans stand for.

During the primaries she purposely had her bus tour go where the other candidates was letting her be known with voters.

She is a firecracker but she is determine and stays true to her convictions instead of this flip flopping mess to only cater to whatever crowd.

While all of that may be true (or not- it's all still highly debatable), none speaks to Palin's work ethic. Her record shows that once she went past being the mayor of Wasilla, she soon grew bored with all the day to day necessities of her position on Alaska's energy board and as Governor.

I have always believed that if Palin had stuck with her Governor's term and gritted it out, she would have a viable national career now. But she did not. Like Pat Buchanan, she will never re-enter the political arena again as a participant. I'm sure she's quite happy with her part-time job at Fox; I can't think of another network correspondent who got a full studio built for them in their house. For Sarah, her present job is as good as it gets.

Two years ago this thread would have had a couple hundred posts. What happened to all the Saraphiles? Have they graduated to the Bachwoman or to the Pizzaman? Maybe trump is their ace in the hole now! What happened to all the teabags?

We have short attention spans and we rarely follow through on things. Of course the Tea Party phenomenon was bound to die a quick death.

I'd vote for the same cross-eyed drooling dumb*** if he or she were just smart enough to understand that repealing Glass-Steigal (Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999) while exempting credit default swaps from regulation (Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000)and allowing financial institutions to become too large to fail (Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act of 1994) is a really bad idea.


Palin clearly surpasses both Obama and Clinton.

None of the people you listed think it's OK to allow Obama's annual deficits to exceed one trillion dollars or think Clinton's bank deregulation was a good idea.
