Don't hate her.
Just don't think she'd be a good VP/President/Monopoly Banker

I don't think she's stupid, but I think she lacks a lot of knowledge in comparison to many politicians and the desire to learn what she doesn't know (based on comments by mccain staff).

I couldn't understand her babbling enough to tell if I believed her or not...she was incoherent.

Why the incessant need to use hateful invective towards anyone that has an opinion that differs from your own? I don't understand your hate.

OK. Cite some examples of her being smart.

And that fact just shocks me.

The media told them to hate her.

The devil made them do it.

Palin 2012

As a Republican, I seriously doubt it. I have a good idea who WILL run, but the GOP will keep it under wraps so the Democrats won't feel the insecure need to attack them years ahead of the next election since the stellar performance of their own candidate is somewhat lacking.

I think some of the things she did, which many politicians do, are hypocritical. Calling for abstinence in teens, when her own daughter was pregnant out of wedlock.

I think if politicians would avoid a lot of the values things and really concentrate on running the nation and stop growing the government, people wouldn't be so judging of them.
With all dues respect, it appears as if you don't understand the definition of hypocrisy. If Palin was preaching abstinence, and was sleeping around and having babies out of wedlock, then, yes she would be a hypocrite. If I'm against illegal drugs, and talk out against them, and it turns out that my dad is a coke head, would I no longer be able to be against illegal narcotics? See the fallacy in your statement?

Well...I DO understand what you are saying about the way I wrote out that post....I guess the only (lame) excuse I have is "frustration".There's no hate in me for anyone,but yes,there IS anger in me for the people who have ruined the country for my daughter's generation and that anger/frustration does spill out occasionally.

Now,do YOU have an excuse(no matter how lame) for some of the hateful posts I've seen of your's
