    But what you forget is that a monkey promising free cigarettes to children could beat the GOP candidates right now too.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    The only person who had a chance to beat Obama was Daniels.
    Thats not particularly been my point. My point is that Palin is maligned for a lack of ideas and policy when that clearly isnt correct. The media meme was that she had no ideas and because a multitude on the left dont like her policy positions they pushed the meme that she had no ideas.

    Palin has been involved in a variety of issues since the 08 election and has inevitably pushed the debate towards her viewpoint quite a few times, usually to the detriment of the current administration.

    So gross exaggerations regarding Palin tend to annoy me, if you dont like her policy positions, say so, using the she has no ideas meme is just being as stupid and vacuous as you would have people believe she is.

    So talking points count as positions now?

    I looked at her website and there were really no policy positions I could find.

    There is this but these are pretty one liners compiled by this website.

    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.

    Really? If I underestimate her I'll lose my job and my daughter will quit speaking to me? Because that's really about the only thing that would make me come anywhere near to undone.

    Not underestimating here, maybe underestimating the ignorance of the american populace to realize that talking points =/= policy.

    A monkey promising free smokes to kids is how the GOP will be portraying Obama when their back is against the wall and they get desperate enough to let the crazy out...
