Why do they fear her so much? We get it that they don't like her, but all they're accomplishing is giving her free publicity, which I assume must gratify her to no end! She's laughing all the way to the bank!
    Morning Pol. Hope you are well. She must be laughing a lot. I fault the McCain campaign for dragging her on to the national stage before she was ready, but I think she's done well in spite of that mistake and all the attacks. A large part of the left's characterization of Palin involves her being a redneck of sorts, clinging to her guns and Bible - the very image they hate. They made her into that in the media, and then got the tar and feathers out. I'd hate to see her go through that again on a national stage, and there's little doubt in my mind that such a thing would happen.

Not even Bush was as savagely attacked as she was. They sent an army of lawyers and reporters to Alaska to find **** on her, anything.....anything at all. Then they had the MSM in cahoot to blow out of proportion and out of context.
    No, I don't think Obama could survive any investigation of his past in any detail at all. Certainly not anything near what Palin has endured. Palin was smashed because the left cannot endure a conservative female who might be politically viable. My reservations about her ability to pursue national office are based on the effort required to reverse the public perception the left has created. That, and she has proven to be an excellent advocate and supporter of other candidates who don't have that perception problem.

    I don't have a vote, however, much as I admire Sarah Palin for the no-nonsense approach she takes to battling Democrats, it would be sheer folly to vote for her in a Presidential primary at this time. Her voice is much stronger and much clearer where it is right now.

    However, if she was to run in the next Senate primary in Alaska for the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat Senator Begich in 2014, I believe she'd be a formidable candidate with a good chance to be elected. As a former Governor, a former Vice-Presidential candidate, and as a sitting Senator with some accomplishments on the national stage, she could be an interesting Presidential candidate in 2020 should the Republicans lose in 2016.

    I'd vote for her because she doesn't trust Barack Obama, either.

    She's a human being with feelings, just like the rest of us, and I wonder if those attacking her would be as unconcerned as she appears to be, if the shoe were on the other foot. The attacks on her family, especially her children, are way out of line, though, coming from a party that claims to care about children! :

    In my opinion, she conducts herself much the same way as Obama does. By that I mean she says and does what she wants, and she doesn't care what anybody thinks about it! She's as cagey and shrewd, in her own way, as he is. Maybe that's what the Left doesn't like...a woman with gonads who is a match for BHO! Even having the bully pulpit that BHO does, and which she doesn't, she still draws crowds that rival his...people willing to pay to hear what she has to say. Further, as physically fit as she appears to be, she would probably emerge the winner in any contest of physical skills, and that has to be an embarrassment. Plus, most men find her sexy! Interesting...

    Nothing simple about those two issues. And focusing on priorities is exactly what gets people elected.

    But we are talking about the tea parties themselves, not candidates they help to elect. It is crucial for their cohesion and potency that libertarians and moderates do not walk away. They did, in many places and to a significant extent - and mostly because the media convinced them that the truce on "social issues" had been broken by conservatives.

Bear in mind the portion of the electorate most effected by the smears and attacks on Palin are those that voted for Obama - twice.
    Humbolt, you chose the exact correct word when you posted "Pavlovian." : It's not too often we get to witness Pavlov's theory of responses to stimuli proven so graphically...over and over again! Kudos....

    Yep. They've tried to paint her as a bimbo, and they've done very well at it. Of course she's not, but she speaks plainly - without all the inflection and intimation that she knows more than average people. The left loves those who project an image of scholarly superiority. Now who do we know who does that? Posing works well for those impressed by image, but we're all susceptible to that to some degree in national politics. Palin is real. Obama's a fake. That's the big difference. Besides, you're right - she's a good looking woman.

    Good morning, CJ!

    Excellent! She is much stronger doing what she's doing, as borne out by the Left's reaction to her!
