It all reminds me of 1977 when the DNC Chairman predicted the death of the Republican party. The parallels are eerie.

I havent listened to the speech but I hear it downright scary. I'm going to slowly watch it and try and decide whether to laugh or weep (that there are people who could consider her capable as a candidate for President)

One thing is for sure: She'll be running. Her handlers told her step down and she did. She, like the President of the past 8 years, are slowly revealing themselves, and those they represent,as a political party in its death throes.

If this is how they "rebrand" themselves with the likes of Sarah Palin then they are going the route of the T-Rex.

So, where are all the Palin supporters???? Usually everyone that supports her on here, come running to her defense.

"She is running a State compared to a Senator of Illinois."

Sorry, I must have misunderstood your other post if you're not a Palin supporter. That was one of the weirdest speeches I've ever heard. She even compared herself to General MacArthur at the end.
I'm surprised she even knows who General MacArthur is!!! T
After all, this is a woman who thinks ancient men and women frolicked with dinosaurs.

I dont think she would have won the nom even if she was going to run. I dont think she has a bat chance in heck of winning it now. She might as well find something else to do with her time.

Thats just my opinion

Sadly, it will help them. That Palin infection was becoming resistant to drugs.

It helps the party if she shuts up and goes away.
It hurts the party if she goes spouting off more of her patented nonsense.
