    Oh for cripe sakes. Was is necessary to use words like darling, ultra-conservative and controversial.
    When's the last time someone was called ulta-liberal in the media? or a Democrats darling? or even controversial?

    I've heard a lot of things said about Palin but corrupt isn't one of them.
    Is this going to be a new attack I have to look forward to?

    You don't recall the string of suits against Governor Palin during the 2008 election and after? Perhaps worthy of being dropped, but they were not new attacks.

    Unfortunately, "intellectual conservative" candidates seem in short supply in the Republican party at the moment.

    I wonder, if there were more of that brand of politician on both sides, rather than people like Palin and her counterparts on the Democrat side, if there would be less political divisiveness. It's harder to critique (let alone hate) someone with a nuanced and thoughtful view of a political issue than it is someone who, as the article accuses, relies on "shallow talking points" -- even if that person disagrees with you.

    While I like some intellectual politicians who are masters at it, I find the wish for an intellectual candidate exaggerated. Perhaps it is a Democrat and Independent voter thing. I just do not see the allure anymore.

    Anyway, I don't see the big deal. So she's visiting Israel.
    I'm sure Netanyahu will find her to be better company than Obama who left him standing by the trash.
    it appears you don't have an answer to my question, how does someone who is not in charge of anything conduct an "official" trip to israel
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Absolutely not. What those frivilous suits, that were all dismissed showed, was the extent the left would go to destroy her.

    I'm sick to death of the so called "intellectuals." They're ruining the country. Give me someone with some smarts and common sense.

    Editor's note to the author: Note bolded words to insert the next time you post. Otherwise it reads like the nonsense it is.
