    Politicians like Palin pandering, is this type of pandering ok?

    OK since this involves Palin the objective people will have to keep it on track while the hacks derail it.

    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?

    Don't bother me at all. I would wear jeans to a party and dress clothes to an event. What's the difference?

    LOL

    I agree to many people they probably dont care but wearing the Star of David around your neck one day and then a Cross around your neck another day probably doesnt sit well with a lot of people.

    For example what if a politician come out to all the pro gays rights rallies etc etc but then you found out he secretly donated and funneled large amounts of money into ant-gay groups?

    Just saying how a person could view extreme catering by politicians, ALL politicians not just palin.

    I really dont think that example works AT ALL in the context of your OP.

    One could argue wearing the star is simply support for Israel, and wearing the other is support for her own religion.

    Not something I would personally do but hey, to each his own.

    oooooh make no mistake about it I dont think my example was a "parallel" either I was simply pointing out that "pandering" is different for each of us.

    While I also agree with you I think you said it perfect in the end. "No something you would do"

    and thats my point, Im sure theres many out there that dont think you should be switching religious symbols around you neck no matter the reason other than you converted and even then people would like that.

    I don't think it's necessarily wrong per say. But it does make one seem very transparent (for lack of a better word). It's more of a vapid personality where one doesn't show their true self, but whatever mask they want to portray at that time. I don't know, to me while I wouldn't say it should be illegal or it's wrong, I think it makes one look very shallow.

    Well definitely not illegal. Just vapid and shallow like you said and I also think pandering to big in general is wrong.

    Of course, its as common as thew sun coming up. Id like people to give examples and where the line is for them.

    For example on a minor scale I wonder how many sports jerseys politicians have worn in different cities at different colleges etc etc I bet a bunch

    I don't have a problem with what she's doing, but I don't really see the point in it.
    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.
