    Interestingly enough I'm in the process of making mashed potatoes for dinner.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I don't have a problem with pandering in general. Politicians do it all the time. At some point, pandering can become so blatantly obvious as to backfire on the person who's doing it, so politicians themselves have to toe a certain line when they do it. None of it affects, me, personally.

    In light of Obama's comments about Israel going back to 1967 borders on May 19th ....I think Palin had a very blatant political motive for wearing the star of David, and making sure it was visible, especially for the media.

    I'm curious what everyone thinks about this type of pandering. I mean ALL politicians pander but where is your line. Again this involves palin only because it's her picture that made me think of it.

    To be fair PLEASE fill free to post extreme examples of pandering by any and all politicians and we can address those too. We can discuss when its to much, its just natural and acceptable or when its simply wrong and disingenuous.

    Is this to much pandering and is it wrong?

    I agree with this, but in the end I don't really care, it's a "meh" issue to me.

    I don't think any one is denying it was a political move to wear it. The question is whether it is inappropriate.

    Really stretching for bash Palin topics. Are legit bashing topics for her becoming harder to find?
