    Palin "apologists" realize she has faults and like her nonetheless. Obama "apologists", on the other hand, don't believe he has any faults, making them the pathetic creatures they are.

    As much trouble as the Dems were in November of 2012? I remember predictions of a Romney landslide and worse and it scared the heck out of me. Is this going to be even worse?

    CJ, you know this isn't true ... Why do you persist on posting this same post day after day, week after week, month after month ... for at least two years now? That truly is pathetic ...

    wiki notes that 239 requests were made.. 189 after she was chosen as McCains running mate... that's a lot of requests that state attorneys had to sift through and decide on.
    (it was entertaining when her emails were released.... and there was no evil "dirt" was found... partisan witchhunts are entertaining to me, especially when they end in a whimper instead of a bang))

    her being chosen as a running mate is what ultimately doomed her governorship

    Sarah Palin....the gift that just keeps giving!!!! Run Sarah Run!
    I would greatly prefer that she run for president on a third party ticket. I that is not going to happen, this may be the next best thing.

    We all have faults. How many of you wouldn't be made to look worse than her if you had the media and enemies looking for dirt on you?
    I don't thinks she's a real person. She uses her celebrity to enrich herself. Fine,but then I can't take her seriously. In 2008,I was a big fan. Even afterwards after she resigned as governor. Now she's simply a joke. Her act is a better fit with the Democrats,who cherish the low info voter.

    So if she couldn't handle the "dirt digging" so to speak, how do you think she can handle this? It's the same thing.

    If she runs, she is going to be clobbered polticially.

You must have a pretty high opinion of politicians - I generally think they're mostly as self-centered and egotistical as pretty much any successful person. The difference for me is that I'd rather see someone seeking higher office from a current office to resign their current seat and run, not hold onto their seat, use the perks of that office, the comfort of that fallback position, and if they lose just slink back into the position they held.

    Doesn't matter to me what party it is - I have the same criticism of McCain, when he ran for President, Governor Perry, when he ran for the nomination, etc. etc. Why should the American people keep giving you a salary to perform particular duties in an office you hold while you snub your nose at the people who voted you in and run for an office you think is more worthy of your time?
    I guess maybe we're just more used to it. Almost every Presidential candidate has to resign his old position to take the Presidency. Clinton and Bush both left Governor's offices to become President. Gerry Ford left the House to be appointed VP and eventually President. Even Bush Sr. was Veep when he ran in '88. There's very few people who became President without leaving a different office to do it.

    Heck, almost every election there's a Governor that becomes a Senator or vice versa. Some states will even allow a person to be on the ballot for two different offices - when Lloyd Bentsen was Dukakis' running mate in '88, he was also up for re-election to the Senate (which he won).

    Palin left to be on TV and now 5 years later is saying "Maybe I'll run for Senate." Honestly, I don't think she'll actually do it. Just saying it puts her back in the public eye.

    Maybe this time he'll remember which departments he's not actually going to get rid of when he's elected.

    Actually for her, a Senate run makes the most sense because no matter how bad she gets "clobbered" nationally, it really doesn't matter for her. The only thing that matters is how she is perceived in Alaska. In the end all she has to do to win is to be perceived as slightly less disgusting than her opponent. It's kind of like being chased by a bear. To get away you don't have to be faster than the bear, you only have to be faster than the guy next to you.
