    Agreed, of course you are being thoughtful here! Sadly there are many at DP that find it impossible to act that way when Palin is mentioned. It is more than fair to call it Palin Derangement Syndrome IMO.

And some people criticized the McCain campaign of vetting her solely to grab votes from the former Clinton supporters. However, I think that was mostly a criticism of the McCain campaign more than her personally. The moment that Kennedy does an interview like the Couric one people will start giving her crap like that too. The only thing I can see about Palin now is that she's desperately trying to remain relevant and she will until the media loses interest in her and it will happen soon I'm sure.

    It's that interview that did allow me to form an opinion of her. I was floored by it, actually.

    In any event, and for what's it's worth, I don't think Palin is dumb like the media has made her out to be. In fact, I think her intelligent. However, I don't think she's polished nor experienced enough--at this time--to have been chosen as a VP running mate. The fact that she's finding that the press has unfaily treated her irrecovably shows that. Ask any public figure if they have been the target of any misleading information, and I bet most would say "yes."

    I guess The National Enquirer is not one on the newspapers she reads.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Did you see her comparison of how her family was treated by the press versus how Obama’s was treated by the press in the POTUS election? It is in the video interview I just posted. The woman is bang up front and spot on with her very savvy comment on that and other matters. A double standard was in play and she would indeed be as daft as many try to pretend she is, if she did not note and decry it. IMO.

    Me thinks she protests too much. JMO.

    You can say I have Palin Derangement Syndrome. I don't care. I have no respect for her whatsoever. NONE.

    Why not?...
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I don't think she's dumb either and I agree completely.

    I don't know, I think the way that some of the Conservatives swooned over her was pretty messed up. I could kind of understand why people swooned over Obama during the election considering that he was the first African American Presidential candidate and was articulate and well-spoken, but I can't for the life of me understand why they swooned over Palin.

    Muslim Obama took his share of knocks. So did America-hater Michelle. And, I can bet that Obama et al., will surely be criticized (rightly and wrongly throughout his Presidency).

    And I can't help but think of the vitriol that Chelsey felt when her dad was President. I cannot imagine how all of those brutal "ugly" comments would weigh in on a young teenage girl.

    Palin and family are not the first to be unfairly treated by the media, nor will they be the last. Sad, but true, unfortunately.
