It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach
I think those who debate for Palin or Bachmann clearly show the general intelligence level of the typical Palin/Bachmann supporters. 'Nuff said?
Moving on, I am certain that the democrats would absolutely love it if either of those two women ran, for obvious reasons.
I don't see the powers that be in the GOP allowing that to happen though. You don't rise to that level power being uninformed and naive.
The only way I can see the GOP running Palin or Backmann is if they already know that running against Obama is futile and they just offer up a dispensible sacrificial lamb for the upcoming defeat, and save the serious contenders for the next go around.
I can't see myself voting for Obama but that doesn't mean I can't see him being re-elected. I would bet 20 bucks he wins and it wouldn't hurt my feelings if I lost that bet. But I take the 20.00 as a small consolation prize, I suppose.
