    There's no way I could ever become a defender of Mao, Marx, Stalin, Pol Pot, FDR, and Clinton like you have.
    I can't believe you just lumped all those guys together. LOL!

    Actually, last I heard, Brown will be seated right away!

    Next target: New York. Both Gillebrand and Schumer are up this year.

    From his point of view, all those characters ran on a platform of upsetting established bourgeoisie values. What they identified themselves "as" is really of no value. Certainly, if you looked at the status quo with disapproval, and think it is in need of a revolution, it would probably help your cause to distinguish between "failed," "semi-failed," and "successful" revolutionaries.

    Yet from the standpoint of a Conservative in every sense of the word? There is no distinguishing features between one man or another. No more than you would notice the shoe style of your (potential) murderer.

    Can't believe that you, or any other Conservative, can compare her to the Gipper:

    Ronald Reagan was polished, and knew what he was talking about. Every week, while Carter was in office, he came on the radio every day, and offered his opinions on just about everything. His spots were hard hitting, and very intelligent.

    By contrast, Sarah Palin didn't know where Africa was on a map, and told people that she knew foreign policy because she could see Russia from her porch.

    However, I might be willing to give Palin another chance. Perhaps she can learn from her experience on FOX News, but she has a long way to go from being the albatross that sank McCain to being a real contender.

    When primary time comes around, I'll take Brown. He is going to be in there, and he is very intelligent, takes time to research and understand the issues, communicates his positions with deft skill, has his finger on the pulse of his electorate, knows what the hell he is talking about, and doesn't need to use fake props like Joe the Plumber. This is in stark contrast to Palin who, at this time, has none of those qualities.

    For those (especially Democrats) who are laughing at the thought of Brown running a successful campaign in 2012, don't forget that Obama also came out of nowhere to serve less than one term in the Senate, and then become president. Brown will wipe the floor with Obama if he runs. I predict he will run, and I also predict that he will be the next president. You heard it from me.

    You just might be right, I think the handwriting is on the wall here.

    Re: GOP's Brown wins Mass. Senate seat in epic upset

    Dan if Brown does run, a couple of questions:

    1) Running mate

    2) Congressional makeup

    The one thing I fear is that if the GOP does win the trifecta again, we will see more of the SSDD that we saw from 2001-2007. And I for one, cannot stomach another round of RINO spending that nearly shames the Democrats. At least when the Democrats spend, they're open about it.

    She believes fervently in the same things. Unfortunately she stands pretty much alone in the R party on that one.

    By contrast, Sarah Palin didn't know where Africa was on a map, and told people that she knew foreign policy because she could see Russia from her porch
    .Blarney, and the second bit was Tina Fey, not Sarah Palin.

    However, I might be willing to give Palin another chance. Perhaps she can learn from her experience on FOX News, but she has a long way to go from being the albatross that sank McCain to being a real contender.
    She was the uplifting element in the campaign. She brought life. Wthout her McCain would have gotten walloped worse because McCain failed to exploit Obama's many weaknesses and tragic flaws.

    Given freedom, Palin would have ripped Obama a new one, kept him on the defensive and forced the press to report his weaknesses... McCain did nothing of the sort.

    When primary time comes around, I'll take Brown. He is going to be in there, and he is very intelligent, takes time to research and understand the issues, communicates his positions with deft skill, has his finger on the pulse of his electorate, knows what the hell he is talking about, and doesn't need to use fake props like Joe the Plumber. This is in stark contrast to Palin who, at this time, has none of those qualities.
    Time will tell. I'd love to see them debate. If you recall, Palin beat Biden head to head... a guy who was still breast feeding when he won his Senate seat.

    For those (especially Democrats) who are laughing at the thought of Brown running a successful campaign in 2012, don't forget that Obama also came out of nowhere to serve less than one term in the Senate, and then become president. Brown will wipe the floor with Obama if he runs. I predict he will run, and I also predict that he will be the next president. You heard it from me.
    Lot's of time. And virtually anyone witha brain could beat Obama next time out. He has a record and a truck load of fark ups already; internationally and domestically. Last time he divorced himself from his friends, and claimed no record beyond "yes we can", "We are the ones we have been waiting for" and "Hope, Change, Unite."

    That's a lot of qualification for a Democrat candidate... have to admit that.

    Obama's a lame duck, and unlike Clinton, he doesn't have a Dick Morris capable of coming up with cutting edge strategies, like running ads virtually underground... in small markets all throughout the southern states for a couple years before the 96 election. Ads that rehabilitated him after getting smacked in 94.

    O-BA-MA is up a crik without a paddle... with three years to go.

    .
    Seriously?

    It's bad enough when the left lets its sexism roar; there's no need to fetishize her any further.

    These are not qualities you should be looking for in a president, they are qualities you should be looking for in a hooker.
