All the PR firms, newspaper articles, speeches and 30 second ads in the world will never do for Palin's political future what these people will by going on TV and calling white people racists for having the audacity to be white and support a patriot who believes in our founding principles.


I guess they couldn't find anyone in the crowd playing a banjo. Maybe next time MSDNC.

I've just been "spun" so vigorously I'm about to throw up. I feel like I just got off the Tilt-A-Wheel at the carnival.

If anyone thinks she has a chance to win in 2012 bless your heart. The lady has about 25% favorable opinion as it is and this is without all the facts about her corruption allegations as governor in AK (which were likely the reason she resigned). She's a lame duck before she's a lame duck. The reason she's so popular is because she's an easy target. Commentators like Jon Stewart and Colbert could make whole episodes dedicated to her. Notice it's the "liberal" networks that publicize her more. There's a reason. It's not because they're "scared". It's because the more she opens her mouth, the worse a name the GOP gets. It's simple. It's only a very blind few that don't realize this.

Not sure where your data comes from or how old it is, but I have far better numbers in recent polls.

Toplines - Sarah Palin - November 13-14, 2009 - Rasmussen Reports™

http://www.foxnews.com/projects/pdf/..._PalinPoll.pdf


Former Governor Palin's gains have come mostly from independents. Last July, more members of this key demographic group saw her unfavorably than favorably, by a 51 percent to 38 percent margin. The Going Rogue author has turned those numbers around. Now 49 percent of independents see her in a favorable light, while her unfavorables have dropped to 38 percent.

While I would never vote for Palin (she's a cut and run quitter), I think she has done something very valuable for the GOP. Her simple presence has put the pure unfiltered hatred of the left on full display. Every time she appears, or her name is merely mentioned, the lefties start foaming at the mouth like some sick animal with no control.

And I would add they double and triple their party contributions. Palin is the best fund raiser the democratic party has had in a long time.

Question They DO still give tours, don't they?

Palin is on her way to the White House!



If she asks real nicely during her tour, maybe they'll let her peak into the Oval Office.
