    Conservatives, always playing the sexist card...

    I dislike Palin. Not because she's female, but because she appears to be some kind of idiot.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    In the words of one of our most famous posters: Be afraid my left wing friends. Be very afraid.
    Well, he's corect of course. But, if you want Obama there for four more years, please nominate her.

    I don't see how she could ever be nominated. Even Mitt Romney could beat her.

    Like I said, he was using as a code word for her intelligence. He was basically calling her, and by extension the tea party movement, stupid.

    But gravitas means gravity or seriousness and that's what Rove was at least ostensibly talking about

    even most democrats are not dreaming of 4 more years of Obama.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Not sure you're right about that, but if so, for a different reason than conservatives aren't. Many of them think he hasn't gone far enough. They want someone more liberal.
