    This half term governor/reality show failure/Ivanka Trump wannabee is sure showing us why a McCain/Palin vote would have been a disaster for the nation.

    While I'm sure we'll have some relexive defenders from the usual suspects, who do you think should be most aghast at this latest event?
    When the Obama Administration really gets to be embarrassing then it's time to talk about the Palins, I guess.

    Just curious. What do you think?


    Anyone who's never been involved in a similar kerfuffle may have missed out on a lot of fun and laughter.

    Sometimes, once in a while, everyone needs to let their hair down. But not every weekend.

    Actually, this question was prompted by my seeing some 'news' search results in Google and noticing several articles in the foreign press.

    I thought about the people sitting in Turkey right now, or Lebanon, picking up a morning paper and reading about how the US people almost elected this chick and put her family into the Blair House, right behind an old man who has health problems and a history of cancer. And she came thisclose to having a guy follow her around with the nuclear suitcase. The Iranians read this stuff too... and many realize its not a caricature of the decadent West.

    And these same people elect the leaders of their nations (Iran is different, I know, but public sentiment is important)... the same leaders who have to decide if they want to ally with the US in dropping bombs on groups right near their own borders.

    Its a bit embarassing for everyone, I think.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Be your criteria, politicians have been embarrassing "everyone" for quite some time. The two that come to my mind as being among the worse would be Bill Clinton and John Edwards. Then there's Teddy Kennedy, of course. Personally, I don't think they embarrass us, I think they embarrass themselves. (Oh, and I'm sure there are plenty of Republicans to go around, but these popped into my head.)

    So does that mean you dismiss this incident because Palin is a republican?

    Fair enough, would you say the same when republicans post a thread used for political hackery about the failings of a democratic family.
