    Although I don't agree with her politics I think the left nitpicks Palin unfairly at times.

    Its like if you asked me what my favorite Zeppelin song is I may reply "All of them". Doesn't mean I don't know any of their songs.

    Liberals don't understand her, and it scares them very much. They don't understand her appeal just like they don't understand most of America.

    Do you think if you repeat this inane **** often enough, it might become true? No one on the left is the least frightened of her.

    Did some liberal, some place, say that she was irrelevant? I don't remember seeing that.

    I think she's relevant. But, not in the way that Republicans think she is.

    Even the Beckster can't stand it as he smirks at her inability to answer another simple gotcha question.

    I just wish we had a video of her asking her handlers, "But... but... but, why again are there "two" Koreas?"


    YouTube- Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin on the Founding Fathers
    You do know that Neocons can disagree about policy and the election of certain public officials, right? For instance, David Frum was quite vocal against Sarah Palin.

    Please. The left is frightened of her for her potential of becoming a leader. Let us not be ignorant of it. Is it partially why I stopped the prospect for voting for McCain? Yes.

    Is it really that hard to admit she makes people nervous?

    Lastly, I don't know whether or not Sarah Palin knows that much about the "Founding Fathers", but frankly, most people do not anyway (including elected officials). When most people speak about them, the mental image that protrudes is some sort of glorious collection of demigods who spoke in one harmonious voice-giving us the beginnings of our republic. In the grand scheme of things, it was impressive, but it was far from harmonious and far far from certain what direction to take the republic or whose opinion was far too radical in one direction or another.

    To a degree, this whole point and laugh at Palin because she hesitated about the Founding Fathers gag is moronic because most people, including the elected officials know jack to begin with. It would practically take a lifetime for me to comfortably say I know a fantastic amount about these men, so let us not prepare to believe that we are somehow more informed or that many other elected officials can boast of having the intricate details of 18th and early 19th century American politics and political philosophy memorized and reflected.

    Man that girl is an idiot. I wonder WTF she actually did in college, it doesn't seem like "went to class" is the answer to that one.

They'd listen to her for 5 minutes and determine that if America is stupid enough to elect an idiot like her then we are probably weak enough to be invaded ourselves.

    THAT is why she is relevant.

    And I say anyone promoting her, supporting her and voting for her does not have the good of the country in mind.

    When my husband (who cannot stand Palin) saw the interview, he said to me, "I actually agree with her."
