    "No one else" knew who Palin was? Interesting. And factually incorrect.

    Senator McCain's pick astonished me because I thought he was going to tap Rob Portman or Tim Pawlenty or another governor, not because he picked Palin. Maybe I'm more astute than other people. I pay attention to this country's governors and read the papers, and yes, her name was in the papers prior to her getting tapped. Cute on the "trading cards" comment, but wrong. It's called paying attention.
    You are wandering away from the main point: this is not about you. I am sure you are an astute observer (I stand in witness)....

    My point is about Palin being an unknown prior to her nomination (note Times article.... I have been looking for name recognition polls on Palin, but I am afraid she was too obscure to poll) and then becoming a "rock star".... widely known, by people that are not astute observers. Her career substantially benefited BECAUSE she was a woman; so picked to be on the platform, and as such is one of the biggest beneficiaries of affirmative action in the history of mankind.

    Which VP candidate campaigned for the job? You didn't answer that.

    Of course her career benefitted because she was a woman. Just like Obama's did because his father was black. No other obscure state Senators were ever picked to deliver speeches at the conventions. You think that would have happened if he wasn't black?

    Unlike Palin, he is also the most powerful man in the world. Care to compare becoming a "rock star" who doesn't hold office with that job due to affirmative action?

    I lol at this whole thing.

    Here we are in the *Breaking News* MSM forum and the title of the thread reads... "Sarah Palin's Family ALLEGEDLY in Alaska House Party Brawl". Don't get me wrong, I like a good drunken brawl story(alleged) just as much as the next guy but Breaking News MSM? This is nothing more than tabloid fodder and yet it goes on for 75+ pages. 6 years post 2008 and the woman still causes quite a stir.

    Well, the 'affirmative action' argument is only valid if there's a qualified alternative applying for the job. McCain/Palin?

    I'm sorry - I have no idea what you're saying here.

    Um, you were implying that Obama got elected because of 'affirmative action', right? Or did I misread you?

    If Palin made it as far as she did (from "obscurity") due to AA according to the other poster, then the same applies to Obama. He was also plucked from absolute obscurity.

    When? When he was named President of the Harvard Law Review? That was pretty much the last time he was in obscurity. His rise seems to have been fast-tracked, much like Kennedy's, but he was in the limelight often along the way.

    Like many woman who have been in power she knows the value of being underestimated and she has been. While all stand agape at Obama for rising from a community organizer to the presidency, she has gone from being an obscure Alaskan politician to being a household word.

    To the right, she is the vanguard of old ideas, and lighting rod of fools and there are few better at drawing out fools than she.
    She certainly did. Within HOURS of her nomination, Daily Kos had floated the scurrilous rumor that her infant son Trig was actually her grandson. HuffPo did too. Perhaps others remember Erik Sean Nelson's piece "Palin Will Run in 2012 on More Retardation Platform." Later, Wonkette ran a piece so ugly that I still cannot believe how low some people will sink.
