There is no segment dragging this country down more than the very, very backwards Conservative mindset.

Podunk Palin is a racist fluff who belongs on Cartoon Network. Schwarzenegger is a neanderthal governor who hasn't the slightest idea what to do in California. These two rejects and the people who support them should be sent on a one-way expedition to Jupiter, along with that entire village idiot crowd that we were cursed with for 8 agonizing Republican years.

Barack Obama is far superior...and don't you for get it either.

It doesn't make any difference, whatsoever.

She can't even finish one term as governor of the least-densely populated state in the country. Obviously, she has no shot in hell at being elected to higher office, namely POTUS.

She's completely irrelevant. A fart in a windstorm.

The accusations against her surround the suspicious circumstances under which her house was built. It appears that there might have been a quid pro quo whereby the contractor who built the Wasilla Sports complex (which saddled that little town with a $20 million debt) may have also built the Palin abode for free. There might have also been embezzlement of the building materials for the sports complex used in her house.

Her leaving office will not stop her from being prosecuted. However, the resignation will allow her to devote all her time to her defense and she won't have the ignominy of being carted off to the hoosegow while still in office.

Whatever happens, it is pretty clear her political career is over. The late night comedians will be holding a wake since she was as rich a source of material as the Comstock Lode was for silver.

Native born Americans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Here's a question, since you don't have to be a natural born citizen to run for the house of reps, and the speaker of the house is next in line after the vice president for the presidency, what then? At that point, is the natural born citizen requirement waved?

I personally would say Romney/ Palin would be better. Besides, as another poster mentioned, I don't think Schwarzenegger would be eligable

This is a very racist and hateful post. Why so much hate for the many people that feel differently than you?

Don't worry. As long as there are Republicans, there will be a good supply of people to laugh at. I mean how overlooked was the Republican Listening Tour meeting concluding that the party's problem is its inability to offer a policy agenda suited for the 21st century? Ya think??? Something as little as that could really make a difference to people???

Looks like Obama isn't the only liberal afraid of her candidacy

Here are links to the current goodies, still under investigation.
