I hate how she does a "bus tour" to promote her book, giving people the idea that she's traveling the country on this bus while actually using a private jet. I hate how she needed to go to four different schools over five years to finish a bachelor's degree in communications, and resigned from her job as a governor to go make millions of dollars selling books and giving speeches, while having the audacity to proclaim herself "not a quitter." I hate how she campaigned on financial responsibility, being proud of her "saying thanks, but no thanks, to the bridge to nowhere" when she actually supported that project until national attention became focused on it. Most of all, I hate the anti-intellectual fervor she stirs up in people, this idea that smart or well-educated people are somehow less qualified for major office, this idea that the president of the freaking United States should be someone "I'd sit down and have a beer with."

    I'm glad her political career is over. I don't have to worry that she would end up directly in charge of anything important. Now, she's just a prettier, simpler version of Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity. Not someone I need to be very concerned about, but it's still fun to poke holes in her statements when she says things that are false or hypocritical.
    HEAR! HEAR! Very well said.

    You, my dear insecure friend, are the person on this forum who habitually attacks posters for what seems like no particular reason and then whines when someone returns the treatment to you. My judgements of Palin, and you, are based on her, and your, own actions and words. I know, to a person like you, that is still being partisan. Oh well.

    Actually one could argue partisan hacks like ADK are the ones bringing down the discourse, him. the likes of late night talk show hosts and other mouth foamers.



    It's easy to dismiss a liberal's criticism by saying "Oh you just hate/fear her because she's a woman/is influential/whatever." It's also wrong.

    I lost interest in her when she decided to no longer be governer. Though I wont be vulgar about it.


    Personally, I wouldn't say I "hate" Sarah Palin, she seems like she'd be a nice lady if she were my next door neighbor. What I hate is her actions. Her blindly partisan, factless, lowest-common-denominator speeches delivered in a phony "Oh I'm just a small town person like you" manner.

    But you loved Obama's plattitudes of hope and change?




    I hate how she fumbles even simple questions and then blames the LIBERAL MEDIA for being unfair with her.


    Like?



    I hate how she uses her disabled child as a prop and then screams bloody murder (on facebook) when people call her out on it. I hate how she demanded Rahm Emanuel's resignation for using the word retard in a close-door meeting and the very next day gave Rush Limbaugh a pass for using the same word on the radio.

    I hate when left wingers take things out of context or spin scenarios in order to claim some high road over limbaugh.



    I hate how she does a "bus tour" to promote her book, giving people the idea that she's traveling the country on this bus while actually using a private jet.
    So you must really hate Al Gore.



    I hate how she needed to go to four different schools over five years to finish a bachelor's degree in communications,

    Why would you hate this? Seems odd to me my friend.



    and resigned from her job as a governor to go make millions of dollars selling books and giving speeches, while having the audacity to proclaim herself "not a quitter."

    This is why I wouldn't ever vote for her. but you come off as jealous.



    I hate how she campaigned on financial responsibility, being proud of her "saying thanks, but no thanks, to the bridge to nowhere" when she actually supported that project until national attention became focused on it. Most of all, I hate the anti-intellectual fervor she stirs up in people, this idea that smart or well-educated people are somehow less qualified for major office, this idea that the president of the freaking United States should be someone "I'd sit down and have a beer with."

    I'm not going to get into yet another rehash of Palin again, its been beaten to death. but this desire for some on the left to have a bogeyman is kinda creepy.




    I'm glad her political career is over. I don't have to worry that she would end up directly in charge of anything important. Now, she's just a prettier, simpler version of Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity.

    yet, you seem just like others VERY concerned with her.

    Well at least you put your mouth foaming in bold so we all know when another wave of ADK is about to wash up on our gulf coast.

    I know. In your world, people who speak the truth, when it's exposing the truth of your heroine Barbie, are hacks like your other heroes Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh and Billo. Gotcha!

    Why are you so full of hate?

    And in response to you hating that she comes off as a small town girl just like you........

    Would you rather we have some elitist snobs running around lecturing all of us?

    I dont get why people are so opposed to those who are capable of appealing to the simple average American.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Okay - she quit four schools before finishing.

    She quit as governor.

    Apparently, she can't even finish a 5K charity run, either. Palin participates in Turkey Trot (w/ photo galleries) - Mid-Columbia News | Tri-City Herald : Mid-Columbia news

    I don't hate her, par se. I simply can't see why people think she's qualified to listen to.

    And what is she good at, exactly?

    Is it "elitist" to be an expert at something?

    Is America exceptional? If it is, why aren't those who actually know something about something allowed to be experts? Is it that we're supposed to an exceptional nation, but run by the average?

    Are nutritionists "elitist" when they say eat broccoli instead of french fries? Damn them for telling us what to do! Are you going to ask your neighbor to look at that suspicious spot on your foot that you're worried could be melanoma? Or is the person who dropped out of high school next door just as good?

    Did you even catch on to the irony of Rand Paul giving his victory speech gripes about "elitists" while speaking from a Country Club?

    Did it bother you that Palin endorsed Carly Fiorina - a woman whose company lost 60% of its value, destroyed 18,000 American jobs and floated away on a $45 million golden parachute? Do you not see "elitism" in someone who gets paid 23X what the average American makes in a lifetime for doing a sh!tty job and destroying American jobs?

    Ah yet another lie. How many times have I posted that i am not a fan of Palin, Beck, or o'reilly? Hannity annoys me, and I find rush entertaining in a hyperbolic way. But don't let that stop you from once again lying about me in order to make yourself look like the left's TD.


    It's really sad how blind you are to your party.

    It's hard to understand you with all that foam coming from your mouth.

    We already do since the Obama crowd came to Washington... and based on poll numbers, the entire country's had enough of the snobs.
