She makes me dizzy and I wish her "audibles" would just go away.

I ranted about how you never dribble through a full court press ... I would have loved to played against her in high school. I have a feeling she was a dirty player.

I noticed both of those lines, too, but they were too stupid for me to waste any time trying to do something funny with them.

Unless she wants to start sponsoring the 'Special Olympics'.

Default Palin's Parting Shot

Quite frankly after all that's happened I think it's a simple matter of " Coldest state. Hottest governor" finding it too uncomfortable in the kitchen.

I disagree a bit, there. Palin's kids were on the campaign trail with her to a much higher degree than the Obama children, who apart from a handful of key events stayed behind in Chicago, attending school. Sure, there were media pieces on the Obama kids, but that was mostly sit-down style, People-magazine type of things.

Giving Palin the benefit of the doubt, it could simply be her style of parenting - to some, staying close is what comes natural. Having read what some of the McCain staffers had to say, however, it appears that she was/is highly dependent on her husband, and obviously, you pretty much have to bring the kids if both parents are out campaigning.

To say leave Obamas Children and wife alone but attack Palins husband and children makes one a hypocrite.
Whoah. Both spouses were targets - remember the "Whitey" tape rumors? (Whatever happened those, anyway?) The Palin husband was member of a secessionist party, and it appears she tried to lie about it to her own campaign staff. (stupid. Say "youthful lapse of judgment" and move on. It's not the crime, it's the cover-up.) It now appears that Palin's husband is much more wired into her decision making than Michelle Obama ever was in Barack's, so I am quite happy we had a bit of light shed on both.

Anyway, let's be reasonable: An pregnant 18-year old who agrees to step out in the political spotlight together with her sort-of fiance (whatever happened to that, anyway?) is going to attract more attention than a 10-year old whose role it is show up at a few key events and look adorable. Particularly with a family-value candidate. I hope the Palin daughter manages to cope, it's a hell of a way to start adult life.

The cruel jokes on Trig were pretty much beyond the pale, but that was not mainstream media, rather anonymous Internet posters. And it was obvious to anyone with a brain that Letterman hadn't been looking up what daughter was at what ballgame. The context changed a borderline joke to an offensive one. Meh.

I wouldn't say she's an idiot per se ... I think she got in over her head and couldn't make it stop, so she's taking her ball and going home.

But I'll join you in the Sayonara, Dasvidania, Adios, Au Revior, Auf Wiedersehen.

On a serious note regarding the special olympics, it would be a major major awesome PR move for her to join with the kennedy family in supporting this incredibly worthwhile organization.

Spin, spin, spin, spin, spin. She's a quitter and a whiner. And I hope that she does get the Republican nomination. It will be smooth sailing for Obama. Lots of Republicans don't like Palin, and quitting the governorship and the people who elected her just made it worse.



Where did I say you said that?

"I must have missed the part where it said Huckabee was found guilty of anything."


Lots of republicans didn't get elected last year because they abandoned their conservative values. We don't have to worry about Palin doing that, Do we?

BO is now planning weekly press conferences to discuss the economy. Those of us who are old enough to remember Jimmy Cardigan's fireside chats see history repeating itself.
