    FFS, she has never held federal office, has not been in public life in six years, and ever ****ing thing that happens becomes a stupid headline of the people who claim they know better what people need than the people themselves.

    Right, while they obsess over a rather attractive woman and her family, another 500,000 illegal immigrants arrived to take their jobs. In the time it took to post it, the US went another $12,564.37 in debt, and Obamacare premiums went up another 8.5%....but Sarah absolutely MUST be put in her place....because.........


    well because it's easier than actually facing the serious challenges that are tearing the country apart. Love it.

    Well, then shame on them for doing that. But as said before, sadly that is the way politics seems to operate in the US. Especially when it is presidential elections, the vitriolic atmosphere is astounding to me as an outsider.

    And personal life has to be left out consideration during debates and political campaigns. People need to debate and discuss on the issues. Not on non-issues of purely personal nature.

    And let us be honest, this might have been done by the liberals but I would think the same thing happened on the other side when Biden was presented as VP. Both sides were going way too far in the personal attacks on the other candidate.

    I've taken journalism classes and written published material. I'm aware of the ethics pushed for by respected publications. Not all publications are as focused on journalistic ethics.

    Are you except incredibly rude (you call me a liar) also incredibly bad at reading. I do not hate Palin, I think she is a dumb woman with extremist views who is totally unfit to run the United States or the free world, but I do not hate her. I know, hating someone you disagree with is very normal in the US political system but as said I do not live in such a system, I don't even hate Geert Wilders, a person who's political opinions I dislike even more than most of Palin's political views.

    I care about dogs, I care about children but I do not care for pictures of children who stand on the back of a dog. Clear enough for you. I could care less if this was a picture posted by the dalai lama himself, there is no justification for standing on a dog's back like that. I do not care if this was the son of Palin or the child of Elvis Presley when she was young, wrong is wrong. And I was not aware that you a mind reader for dogs nowadays. Because there is no way on earth you can tell from a picture whether or not it is uncomfortable for the dog because allowing it does not mean it is not hurting the dog, just not hurting it enough to growl or bite the child is not "not hurting".
    I am well aware how partisan hacks work.They are generally against something unless it is their side doing it or could care less about something unless it is someone they have a unhealthy hatred for doing it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    But a lot of people are private citizens and still are fodder for the supermarket checkout magazine crowd. And private person? Really? What do you think constitutes a private person?

    Is it a person who has her own reality show in 2010? Not very private now is it to make a show like that.

    Is a published author and celebrity a private person? Three books published? Is that the definition of a private person?

    And how private are you when you start your own political action committee you even name after yourself, SarahPAC?

    She wasn't very private in her political position about Obamacare either, ever heard of the ridiculous claim of the death panels of Palin in 2009?

    Private persons also do not have segments on foxnews or leave to then come back as a political analyst. All not very private, or do you disagree with that.

    Keynote speaker at the tea party convention in 2010, featured speaker at the tea party express rally in 2011, the Pink Elephant movement in 2010, endorsing candidates, fundraising activities.

    You may call her a private person, most people in the US will call her a celebrity and a politician/political activist/political analyst/political speaker and someone who keeps on speaking publicly and using the media to promote her message.

    If you use your public notoriety and make statements like this:

    "Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card,"
    Then you are not a private person but you are a public person.

    Or when she publicly spoke in front of the NRA? Where she made some note worthy comments like:

    "Waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists"
    Or the real humdinger:
    "Eric Holder wants you as gun owners to wear bracelets, special bracelets that will identify you as gun owners"
    Which is absolute nonsense of course.

    All in all, mrs. Palin is not a private person, she is a very public person. A TV show, best seller books, tv appearances, political speeches, etc. etc. etc. etc. does not make for someone being designated as a private person IMHO.

    But I am not partisan in this issue. I am neither a fan of the democrats or the republicans. If I were voting in the US election I would have voted Obama/democrat but not out of conviction but of it being slightly more in the direction of my political views than Romney.

    I would have even (if I were American) considered voting for McCain. I have a reasonable degree of respect for the man but I think he really went the wrong way when he decided to run with Palin. I am not fond her political views and McCain's best argument was the experience argument against Obama, something he really dropped the ball on by appointing someone as his running mate who was also very inexperienced.

    I do not care about Palin, I do care about Trig and the dog. If this dog or any other dog would ever bite Trig because he thinks this is something that is OK to do, then I would feel terrible for him and the dog. I think Palin was wrong to use the image of the child standing on the dog, it is not cute and it is not safe for the child or the dog. For me, it was largely over and done with if not for reacting to other people's comments and her poorly chosen responses to the comments about the pictures (you know, Obama eating dog as a child or Ellen she said was not being commented on for posting a similar picture, which of course was not true, Ellen was blasted on her facebook page for this too).

    Also, this is a side issue at best, the trial of the Boston bomber is way more important than "dog stepping stool gate"

    But that's not me. I explained it early on.

    I'm highly amused that my thread is, apparently, so outside the norm of political threads that you have to assume either that I must hate Palin and/or I'm a RINO or that it was a liberal who started the thread.

    But yeah, you all got me, I must fully disclose that I like dogs more than I like pretty much any politician or political pundit. I shall seek a support group.

    Oh...I know that's not you. In fact, in your OP, it was all about the dog...not about Palin. No, I was speaking in a general sense since NIMBY wanted to make some kind of point that conservatives hate Palin, too.
