Palin, on the other hand, called every criticism "sexist". Let's not forget when Obama used the common phrase regarding lipstick on a pig, she immediately assumed that he was calling her a pig, because she had made a joke about lipstick. Even though, she was never referenced in his speech. Sexist!
Katie Couric asking her about magazines? Sexist! They're out to get her, that liberal media! (Never mind that that was probably the softest lob in the universe.)
She screams "I'm a victim!" with EVERY criticism.
Look at her barely-in-the-English language resignation speech. It was about what a victim she was. To put it more succinctly that she could (leaving out stories of moose and bad basketball metaphors): "I'm leaving because people said mean things about me."
You know who she most reminds me of? NY Governor Paterson. They both have to make HUGE public statements any time someone says something about them. This only gives credence to the critic. She doesn't know when to pick a battle. She tries to fight all of them.
You can think so all you like. If you want Obama back in office, then nominate Palin. She has too much baggage. Yes, she has rabid supporters. That's undeniable. But her negatives STILL are higher than Hillary Clinton's were before she ran.
