    Thank Bush and Cheney for the failures of your party that the nation found disgusting. Palin and McCain just continued to feed that disgust.
    I'm not a Republican. Allegiance to political parties is a form of intellectual bankruptcy.

    Good for her!
    Love her or Hate her she has the reins now.

    One of the only real faces in US politics that people can believe..hopefully even if she isn't personally propelled to President or whatnot..she will help set a tone that will change US politics from the hate based politics of Obama to the politics of 30 years ago .
    PROMISES, PROMISES...

    This is the best summery of Palin ever:

    In television interviews [Sarah Palin] was out of her depth in a shallow pool. She was limited in her ability to explain and defend her positions, and sometimes in knowing them. She couldn't say what she read because she didn't read anything. She was utterly unconcerned by all this and seemed in fact rather proud of it: It was evidence of her authenticity. She experienced criticism as both partisan and cruel because she could see no truth in any of it. She wasn't thoughtful enough to know she wasn't thoughtful enough. Her presentation up to the end has been scattered, illogical, manipulative and self-referential to the point of self-reverence. "I'm not wired that way," "I'm not a quitter," "I'm standing up for our values." I'm, I'm, I'm.

    In another age it might not have been terrible, but here and now it was actually rather horrifying.

    I never stated you are. I agree allegiance to political parties is not a good Idea but having a allegiance to the ideological values and moral compass that one represents is what we do when we elect people in this country.

    *sigh*

    I still see the PDS is strong with the forum after a couple days away. Not surprising that we have a thread that could have been interesting already ****ted up with "Igloo girl" and various other drivel only conspicuous in how asinine it is.

    As for Palin leaving politics, I don't really care either way. I don't think she is a viable candidate for 2012 but I can certainly see her making a strong run in 2016 if a republican hasn't already stepped in to clean up Obama's mess.

    Ah. That must explain her centrality in the current news and commentary cycle, and the endless requests for interviews.

    I have to laugh at the so called PDS, when we have threads about people thinking Obama is looking at butts.

    Her political career is over. Sensationalism does not equate to a political career.

    EDIT: I'll amend one part of my comment. Her "ELECTED" career is over. I definitely see her as someone that could be appointed to a position by someone who is elected though.

    Re: Palin says she's not leaving politics

    The amount of lefty hate for her shows that she is the real deal threat, and they are told to hate on her, so like good little brown shirts, they do.

    Obama is Carter Redux, and what did we get from Carter? Reagan.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Palin is no longer any ELECTABLE threat. She sealed that fate herself and it was only her fault.

    The best Palin has to hope for is an appointable position by someone else in charge.

    She is a quitter and is clear she can't handle the heat in the kitchen, so she got out.

    The really hilarious part about the Palin worshipers is that the main reason they liked her was because she was "hot" to them lol.

    So it is now a known fact the best way for a conservative to gain popularity is to have a pair of tits and be a former beauty queen.
