    Noted. Can't argue with you then. I think that makes it pretty much official now.

    She Who Must Not Be Named


    The left’s ... unrelenting assault... has made her a folk hero. The logic goes that if she’s making people on the left this upset, she must be doing something right.

    Yet the left continues to elevate her every utterance so that they can mock and deride her. The problem is that this strategy continues to backfire.
    For someone supposedly so thick, she's been playing the left like a Stradivarius.

    The same leftward skew is also true on television... Left-leaning MSNBC mentioned it nearly 1,000 times. But Fox News, which employs her, mentioned it fewer than 600 times.
    ROTFLOL... Who knew!? MSNBC is The Real Palin Network!

    Re: The myth of Palin's frontrunner status

    For what it's worth, I went to a three day Conservative convention in DC a few years ago, about 250 attendees, before the Republican candidates were officially announced, and saw several of them speak. The most impressive of the candidates was Mitt Romney, who really spoke his mind at that point, and the least impressive was Mike Huckabee who seemed to want the nomination because his father was a God fearing man. Newt Gingrich, as his reputation and demeanor suggests, is a deeply intelligent man yet doesn't appear to have any conceit whatsoever. I think he would be a good choice for VP.

    It seems to me that Sarah Palin is serving as a valuable lightening rod to distract the Left from whatever other Republican candidate might be running, and the potential nominees are pleased to have it that way. It's not the time to make a move and peak too early. Sarah Palin has become over exposed and as a result will be more likely to make some gaffes. She appears to lack wisdom, or "gravitas" as Karl Rove, I believe, put it.

    The question for the Republican Party is what to do with an obvious asset like Sarah Palin, yet who isn't quite ready for prime time.

    My feeling is that she should continue with her occasional Fox News commentary, promote Alaska, but stay out of the spotlight as much as she has been. Then, perhaps, she can run in 2020. She'll still be a young woman and her children grown.

    Mitt Romney is a very impressive candidate and, despite his health care fiasco in Michigan, he should be looked at seriously. Although he hasn't admitted this error as such publicly, perhaps he learned something from that.

    And there are others who are lesser known but who will soon start making their move and eventually become better known to the national audience. Meanwhile Sarah Palin allows them to plan their campaigns without being under the same 24 hour microscope she finds herself.

    Do you mean Massachusetts? While Mitt was born in Detroit and raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, I believe you are referring to his health care experience in the state he governed - Massachusetts.

    Yes, of course.

    My apologies for the confusion.

    Re: The myth of Palin's frontrunner status

    Palin manages to get her name into the media by making inflammatory comments. The media knows that she's just trying to get publicity but they play into her hands for two reasons: 1.)They hate her. 2.)They know that attacking her will make her more popular with Republicans, which will increase her chance of getting the 2012 nomination. They want her to get the nomination because they know that Obama can easily beat her.

    If she doesn't get the nomination or get picked as a running mate, this will all be moot.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    If Palin gets elected, then I'm moving to Germany and watch her support her North Korean allies
