Thanks, Sara

But I can't decide if it's gonna make a funny comedy movie or a terrifying horror film...
yeah, I'm gonna have to go with my gut feeling on this:

Kristol needs to shut up and thank God his 170 IQ enabled him to convince television producers to put his awkward, ugly ass on T.V.

It depends. If they embrace her and allow her to become a viable nominee during the 2012 primaries (much less their nominee) then yes, this will definately hurt them. If not - then no, it will have little effect either way.

I don't think it will do anything. Republicans have to do alot of house cleaning and change their approach if they want to be taken seriously and she is just one tiny piece of the "olden" ways. Not that those folks will go away quietly, they will always find an audience, but at least everyone else will be able to identify and ignore them.

Tough to say, we haven't really had the opportunity to see how she would address issues if independent. One thing a lot of folks discount, she came out of nowhere when selected as the VP partner for McCain. Perhaps she will be a non-factor, but I could also see her getting extensively involved in the election process. She certainly energized the party for a brief period of time, and did a decent job in her debate against Biden, especially considering her lack of prior involvement in many federal issues.

Though she certainly has some flaws, she still may be a substantial player in 2012, depending upon the alternative candidates and what issues have folks concerned at that time.
