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.
    True, but you don't think her opponent doesn't have that dirt? You seem to think she is an "icon" in Alaska. She pissed many of her allies off with leaving mid-term.

    Only time will tell, but this won't be the landslide people are thinking if she runs. She has more baggage than LAX

    Guess I am a dumbass. I would vote for her before the other twits running except for Gary Johnson.

    part of the reason she quit was because of the shear amount of public records requests from folks looking to dig up dirt ( along with the costs incurred to her personally and the state, for battling alleged ethics violations).
    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
    If she would have turned Mcain down I think we would probably view her in a different light especially if she completed her term. But alas you cant change history.

    Sarah is not going to run. if she wanted to be in politics she would have stayed as governor. Sarah realized if she finished her term her popularity would have been **** by the time she ended. Even if you think she was great in Alaska after a few years no one would remember her because no one but alaska pays attention to the governor of Alaska. She had to use her popularity from her VP run when she was hot, and that is what she did. if she wanted to run for something her best time was when she was hot. Now she is just some faux news person with some loyal fanboys. It is great for getting some ratings and perhaps a TV contract with faux, but how many of those fanboys are able to vote in Alaska senate elections?

    this is what Sarah does. She is like some tease who keeps telling you she is going to put out if only you give her just a little more time. meanwhile every time she is in a place to commit to it she has a headache, or she just isn't ready yet. No no, but keep on being a fanboy and send some money to sarahPAC and maybe she will decide to run. This is how she strings along her fanboys. Oh yeah, there is sarah sticking it to those dems by threatening them with her running in the next election. There they are wetting themselves. they are so afraid they are laughing out of control. it makes her fans think that they are winning, but the reality is she would never even win a primary in her own party after what she has done. She is just there to toss her small legion of fans at a candidate, and to toss insults at the dems.

    But don't let me step in the way of any of her fanboys. No really, people are afraid of sarah. You keep telling yourself how scary she is and maybe someday it might come true. Oh, and don't be too disappointed when she decides it just is not time again.
    I would love to see her run just because of the **** storm she would stir up on the Republican side of things. Those weasels could use a good **** storm. I think it would be entertaining as hell especially if she goes "rogue" as it were. I say bring the Grizzly Mama out and see if she's turned into a bearskin rug or she eats and craps out the inside the belt way weasels. Go Sarah go.

    Actually yes. California is becoming too wussified for me. I like my privacy and I can move my business up that way I found out. So yea Alaska may be the place I move to.

    Palin's shortcomings surface everytime she opens her mouth. that's why she will never be elected to anything other than an office in Alaska.

    I haven't been a member of this forum for two years, since I only joined in late January of this year, so your post is a lie on its face, making your interjection here incredibly pathetic.
