So have we. That makes TWO things I have in common with Sarah. That explains her ideas on pro-life and it makes us sisters. Have you read her book before you made your judgments?

She put herself through college gutting fish. Cutting roe out of salmon.

Barack Obama is gutting the country.

Need I say more?
I hope you don't because nothing you said makes any sense. By your view I should LOVE her, yet I don't. I don't hate her. I don't KNOW HER and either do you. You don't know someone by a smile or a shared experience . I know women like her, some are my friends and some aren't. I know women who are BETTER than her in probably every way. Yet I still don't feel they should run a country or be famous for being famous. I never did care for that sort of celebrity fawing...and that is what you are doing.

It's OK to like someone but to put the spin on it you did to justify WHY is just kind of weird. Like those people who believe celebrities share a bond with them. They don't call it FANatic for nothing.

And people thought Obama mania was bad.

I think you answered your own question.

I'm glad that you find your kindred spirit in Sarah Palin....more power to you.

But the fact still remains that she is a woman of average intelligence and average looks (no offense). Also, the fact that she quit as Governor of Alaska to pimp a ghostwritten book slamming the people who put her on the map (McCain's campaign staff) - not my idea of a great American.

She was one of the main reasons that McCain lost the election yet she does not have the courage to admit to her role in the defeat.

You can keep praying to the "Virgin Mary" Sarah Palin all you like but a woman who was not able to successfully run her own household and couldn't take the pressure of completing her term in office as governor should not be running our country. She already proved what she is about, no need to see any more of her antics.

Alaska ain't NV or AZ? Nooooo! Ya don't say?! What that has to do with anything is quite beyond me. It's not just ranching that is effected by predator overpopulation, though that is how it effects me. Alaskas reasons for controlling wolves are their own, and it ain't none of anyones business but theirs. If they feel they need to thin out some wolves, then they should be able to do so, by whatever means they feel proper. They are the people that have to deal with whatever problems they are causing. The ones yowling the loudest about not liking how they handle wolves are the ones who know the least about why they need to.

Perhaps you also should read the link I provided:

Alaska has a long history of bounties and hunting-much of it controversial. Aerial wolf hunting began in 1948. [MOD CUT/copyright] .
Wolf in Governor’s Clothing… « SHANNYN MOORE: JUST A GIRL FROM HOMER

You can count me as one of the majority of Alaskans who didn't like the wolf hunts.

What does "one of us" actually mean? Why does she try to be so divisive, us vs them? Who is "them"?

I wouldn't put it past a bunch of PDS liberals to attend one of her book signings so they could boo her in front of the massive media that is following her every move.
