    It's my opinion that after all the cheap shots that have been taken against her, that every one from hear on out will only scoop up the sympathy vote for her.

    I mean, let's face it, the Leftists have done a good job of making themselves look like assholes with their treatment of Palin. The more they make themselves look like assholes, the more people are going to not vote for them in future elections.

    it may not equate to votes for Palin, but sure as hell is going to equate to fewer votes for the Liberals.

    Yes, but you forget that not everyone lumps all Liberals into the same category like you do. Not all Liberals are making cheap shots at Sarah Palin. This is especially true of politicians who may be running against her. I see it doing nothing more than garnering her more sympathy, and most likely for a very short period of time. As I said before, any sympathy that she gets from the cheap shots that have been taken have more to do with her personal life than it has to do with her credentials as a politician. I honestly don't see people saying "Well, I feel sorry for her, so I'll vote for her even though I don't agree with her politically or see her as a good political leader."

    That doesn't even make sense. Sympathy votes do not win elections. Specially not because people feel sorry that somebody is getting attacked. If that were true Ron Paul would have won the last election election hands down. And John McCain's sight alone would qualify him for President.

    I'm sure the cartoon character and the people working in the west wing are deeply offended by your insult.

    IMO, Liberals are getting lumped in together more and more everyday, especially when they do things like this. The more Liberals that act like assholes the more people won't see the difference between asshole Liberals and cool Liberals.

    There are a lot of people on both sides of the political fence who do a lot of lumping. It doesn't mean that it's justified or correct in any way. You are acting like this is something new. A joke on a cartoon like this is primarily going to piss off the people who already support her. It may make more feel sympathy for her, but I highly doubt that it will make anyone suddenly want to switch their vote to her. Then again, we will see what happens when it comes time.

    Nah, PBO got elected because he was an excellent showman and made a lot of promises, many of which he has failed to deliver on. Victimization had nothing to do with his election.

    You know, I am one of those in the 71% majority who thinks that Sarah Palin is completely unqualified to be President.

    But gee, now that Family Guy has made fun of her in a really obnoxious and tasteless way, why she's got my vote!

    After all, giving someone the most powerful job in the world because they were made fun of makes perfect sense to me!
