Of the 34 threads I counted about Palin, 33 were negative.

What does the left hope to accomplish from this? It might be nice to hear an honest answer from one of these posters.

It's probably because the Repubs are using the McDonalds Model for mass exposure. The Mickey D Model is the one you see all over TV advertising their poisoness garbage, disguised as food, to children and mindless adults. The supposition is that if you continuosly bombard people with the implicit lies, they will start to believe. I certainly cannot say that the model is unsuccessful, Mickey D's continues to sell a lot of burgers to a lot of people. Never mind the, not so distant, future cost.

Sounds more like the Dems to me, especially "bombard people with implicit lies" part, as evidenced by the negative threads about Palin.

I don't know about other people, but sometimes I need to vent. It's like when I first heard about James Dobson or Trent Lott or Mike Huckabee or Marilyn Musgrave. Overwhelmingly negative feelings. It would be the same if I were a huge fan of hers--many people want to share their strong feelings with others, good or bad.
