    Yes, that's why Palin quit :rolls:

    Do you even read the stupidity that you write sometimes?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Plus, she didn't run for office with a, "D", behind her name. She didn't run on a presidential ticket opposing The One. Her name isn't Sarah Palin.

    We know: it's different.

    So what you're saying is that working for the American people is the same as getting paid by them to watch you on television. Palin is a celebrity. Her job is to keep the revenue flowing and the suckers buying. Harman is now the head of a respected association of scholars who most Americans probably have never even heard of. She makes a salary from whatever funding the organization receives. Her job isn't to keep people buying books or t-shirts. Your comparison is a total failure. Not a surprise.

    Palin quit because thanks to the liberals who are out to destroy her, she was no longer able to do her job for Alaska. Did Harman quit because staying would harm the country?


    Why Palin Quit - WSJ.com
    Contrary to most reports, her decision had been in the works for months, accelerating recently as it became clear that controversies and endless ethics investigations were threatening to overshadow her legislative agenda. "Attacks inside Alaska and largely invisible to the national media had paralyzed her administration," someone close to the governor told me. "She was fully aware she would be branded a 'quitter.' She did not want to disappoint her constituents, but she was no longer able to do the job she had been elected to do. Essentially, the taxpayers were paying for Sarah to go to work every day and defend herself."This situation developed because Alaska's transparency laws allow anyone to file Freedom of Information Act requests. While normally useful, in the hands of political opponents FOIA requests can become a means to bog down a target in a bureaucratic quagmire, thanks to the need to comb through records and respond by a strict timetable. Similarly, ethics investigations are easily triggered and can drag on for months even if the initial complaint is flimsy. Since Ms. Palin returned to Alaska after the 2008 campaign, some 150 FOIA requests have been filed and her office has been targeted for investigation by everyone from the FBI to the Alaska legislature. Most have centered on Ms. Palin's use of government resources, and to date have turned up little save for a few state trips that she agreed to reimburse the state for because her children had accompanied her. In the process, though, she accumulated $500,000 in legal fees in just the last nine months, and knew the bill would grow ever larger in the future.

    Yes, we know. Liberals hate Palin on a personal level. Conservatives don't hate Obama personally. Please stop your hipocrisy?

    As far as your thread goes, nothing more than a op-ed piece by a right wing rag.

    Are you saying she wasn't bombarded with frivilous ethics violations brought on by liberals? I can't help it if I have to use op-ed pieces. None of the liberal rags ever tell the truth when it comes to Palin.

    So the FBI and Alaska legilature are liberals?

    So what you're saying is that somebody's OPINION PIECE gave you the TRUTH on something? Are you really that incapable of thinking for yourself?

    .
    I can only speak for myself, but I don't HATE President Obama. I think his ideas and policies are bad for America and the world, but that doesn't mean I hate him. I can't speak for other Conservatives, however...
