    What's with all the catty snitching going on about Palin?

    I'm sure McCain appreciated your vote.

    You can think anything you want. There's no rule against being wrong 99.9999% of the time so you go right ahead and get your "foolish" on.

    Actually, I'm just teasing you on that one. But I do believe the lengthier post I made in the thread about the MSNBC article. I like it when you get all fired up, Jall.

    Well lets see:

    They both take the position that they are non-conventional politicians

    They both portray themselves as common folk

    They both base their "Charm" on folksy language

    Perot started a third party, there is speculation that Palin may try to start a third party.

    They both quit because of concerns about their families.


    Like I said Jall....the facts are the facts....you can't change em.


    Just saw this: NBC’s Viqueira Likens ‘Erratic’ Palin to Ross Perot at More About Politics

    obviously I'm not the only one who sees a Palin/Perot comparison.

    Re: Palin says she's not leaving politics

    The 'Cap And Tax' Dead End
    By Sarah Palin
    Tuesday, July 14, 2009

    There is no shortage of threats to our economy. America's unemployment rate recently hit its highest mark in more than 25 years and is expected to continue climbing. Worries are widespread that even when the economy finally rebounds, the recovery won't bring jobs. Our nation's debt is unsustainable, and the federal government's reach into the private sector is unprecedented.

    Unfortunately, many in the national media would rather focus on the personality-driven political gossip of the day than on the gravity of these challenges. So, at risk of disappointing the chattering class, let me make clear what is foremost on my mind and where my focus will be:

    I am deeply concerned about President Obama's cap-and-trade energy plan, and I believe it is an enormous threat to our economy. It would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage.
    ...

    We have an important choice to make. Do we want to control our energy supply and its environmental impact? Or, do we want to outsource it to China, Russia and Saudi Arabia? Make no mistake: President Obama's plan will result in the latter.

    For so many reasons, we can't afford to kill responsible domestic energy production or clobber every American consumer with higher prices.

    Can America produce more of its own energy through strategic investments that protect the environment, revive our economy and secure our nation?

    Yes, we can. Just not with Barack Obama's energy cap-and-tax plan.

    Re: Palin says she's not leaving politics

    Palin's PAC raised $733,000 in it first outing.
    FEC Disclosure Form 3 for Sarah PAC



    Palin's PAC Raises $700,000+


    Update, 4:10 p.m.: Palin has collected at least $200,000 more for Sarah PAC since the reporting period closed at the end of last month, according to a source familiar with the numbers. Palin's resignation -- announced on July 3 -- triggered a flood of donations to the PAC, the source added.
    ...
    Palin's showing is, however, a sign that she can raise cash at the national level and that she will be a player in the 2010 midterm elections if she, as expected, chooses to involve herself in downballot races.

    It is all the more impressive given the chaos that surrounded her operation -- and herself -- over the first half of 2009. If Palin can spend her time out of office organizing a serious national effort, these numbers suggest the financial support is out there to help her.

    Perot was a bit of a flake but he pretty much had a lot right about the economy and deficits. Perot also actually started a company from scratch.

    Now what did Igloo Palin do? Well she went shopping for clothes, abused her power as a governor, took Federal money after saying that she would not, exposed her own familiy including her children to the media and then cried about it, had her state pay for political trips, took per diem expenses on shakey grounds and then quit and said that she wasn't a quiter. The last stunt would be as if a woman said she was not pregnant and then delivers a bouncing baby.

    Advantage -Perot.
