Go un$crew yourself and change the TV channel then. There! And that didn't cost any taxpayer money!

Well let's be honest. This didn't require a great bit of intelligence.

People love her.

Her book tour is drawing thousands in every town.

People are sleeping on the sidewalks to get her to sign her book.

She is a total phenom.

The liberals are running scared of Palin.
Weren't you, specifically, denigrating Obama for being treated like a rock star?

For people loving him?

For having best selling books?

For being a total phenom?

Hypocritical much?

Shall we point out again that Britney Spears has a similar following? Is she qualified to be president? When are you all going to realize the greatest gift you could ever give to liberals would be Sarah Palin?

She would be welcomed with open arms, I can assure you.

So sorry to burst youur bubble, but the entire bestseller book thing is a scam. The book is bought in very large quantities by far right wing book clubs and such. It is then practically given away as a promotional book along with others for joining the club. Palin's book will fade into oblivion in the bargain book bin in relatively short order.

It's really fascinating how intrigued you conservatives suddenly are with popularity.

When Bush's approval rating plummeted to around 25%, you all said how noble he was to stand in the face of popularity and do what he believed was right (wrong as it proved to be).

More hypocrisy. I guess you all need a leader and Rush isn't doing it any more.

That's what baffles me. She technically had a certified best-seller before the book was even released.

It means nothing. I'd be surprised if it lasts once her base has made their purchase.
