    I don't think many on the left hate her. Perhaps they did a bit when she was running with McCain. Now she's kind of a joke to them (she even was a bit back then too). Hating her would imply that they actually care. I think they get a kick out of taking pot shots at her. I personally have no problem with her at all. I think she's absolutely gorgeous and quite intelligent. I think she got in over her head during the campaign in the cut-throat world of politics. I think that it takes a very specific type of person with incredibly thick skin to be able to properly navigate the world of politics and I don't think she's that kind of a person.

    "stole a photo"? she posed for that photo, who cares?

    i don't believe anyone is scared of her......except maybe todd.

    when was the last time you saw campaign staffers crucify a candidate? what does that tell you?

    if you were thinking reasonably, you would realize that newsweek wants to sell their product, just as palin wants to sell hers. it's all about the $$.

    What exactly are they scared of at this point? Perhaps during the campaign they were scared of her being the vice-President, but now? Because of all of the crap surrounding her I honestly don't think she has a chance of winning if she ran again. I'm not saying that in a partisan way either. She has a big fan base, but there are far too many people out there who think she's a joke or just don't like her.

    It tells me that Romney's former staffers were trying to shoot down her chances for 2012.

    ROMNEY ANTI-PALIN

    Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers, some of whom are currently working for Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin's bid for the White House, have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election. "Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012," says one former Romney aide, now working for McCain-Palin. "The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney. He's in charge on November 5th."

    ---------

    Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a "diva" and was going off message intentionally. The former and current Romney supporters further are pushing Romney supporters for key Republican jobs, including head of the Republican National Committee.

    What's so funny is, they invest so much time and resources attacking the woman, while at the same time proclaiming she's a "joke" and she doesn't matter politically. If she doesn't matter, then why is she such big news to them?

    Sarah Palin is no normal politician, and at the Associated Press, apparently "Going Rogue" is no normal book.

    When the former Republican vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor wrote her autobiography, the AP found a copy before its release date and assigned 11 people to fact check all 432 pages.

    The AP claims Palin misstated her record with regard to travel expenses and taxpayer-funded bailouts, using statements widely reported elsewhere. But it also speculated into Palin's motives for writing "Going Rogue: An American Life," stating as fact that the book "has all the characteristics of a pre-campaign manifesto."

    Palin quickly hit back on a Facebook post titled "Really? Still Making Things Up?"

    "Imagine that," the post read. "11 AP reporters dedicating time and resources to tearing up the book, instead of using the time and resources to 'fact check' what's going on with Sheik Mohammed's trial, Pelosi's health care takeover costs, Hasan's associations, etc. Amazing."

    The organization did not review for accuracy recent books by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, then-Sen. Joe Biden, either book by Barack Obama released before he was president or autobiographies by Bill or Hillary Clinton. The AP did more traditional news stories on those books.


    This really is shameless. 0 for liberal books but Palin gets 11 fact checkers

    It's easy to explain.

    The media is terrified of Palin and the silent majority of Americans that agree with her.

    The very VERY last thing the media wants is a strong conservative female to oppose their annointed Messiah in another election.

    Majority? What majority would that be? Hell, if it truly was a majority why didn't her and McCain win?

    What part of 'silent' did you miss? You know, the people who'd rather eat maggoty cheese than vote for socialists like McCain and Obama and Bush.

    Do you have any proof of this "silent" majority? Ah, so McCain and Bush are socialists too now? You sure seem to throw that word around like cheap candy.
