    And you are right, I would never have thunk that Palin would ever endorse someone besides an Tea Party Republican or put a tax on oil. I always looked on Palin as a Lucy as in I love Lucy. Not quite all there.

    Now the idea of a unity ticket is interesting. I like it. I wonder if it could be employed for president, I know Lincoln did it in 1864 choosing Andrew Johnson a Democrat as his running mate.
    Palin has, to the best of my knowledge, never been anything other than thoroughly ethical in her political dealings. This would not be the first time she opposed a Republican. In fact, her election as Governor was, in large part, based on exposing Republican corruption.

    Right, wrong or indifferent, I just have a very hard time taking her seriously. Ever since she was picked by McCain to be his VP candidate, she has always seemed at least to me, to come off as dizzy.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Good to know, but none of this validates WillyPete's position.

    I disagree with his position as well. Just wanted to clarify since you seemed to think you weren't sure.

    Must have been something fierce for her to endorse a pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage democrat, or maybe she just finally lost it.

    I guess I take oaths more seriously than some. I don't much care for Palin's politics, but I always felt she was given a raw deal in the press until she resigned. Breaking an oath without an acceptable (to me) reason is the death of credibility (to me.)

    She walked away from the responsibility she swore to handle, as best as we can tell she did it to make more money. Why should we believe this celebrity opportunist isn't simply being paid for her endorsement?

    The GOP incumbent she is now opposing was the guy she handed the reigns to. He was good enough for her to make governor then, and as her lieutenant governor, but not now? What does that say about Palin as a judge of character?
