    She didn't quit because people said mean things about her. You're smarter than that, jamesrage.

    Not the same thing- do I want her to be a member of Congress or would she be a good member of Congress.
    Yeah, I want her to be a member, no, she wouldn't be a good one and hell, if she can't make it there I got some congress for her right here.

    I am pretty sure that ignorant white trash already have a few representatives in congress. Unfortunately congress doesn't work like that. Representatives represent the people in their district, not a specific demographic. So if Palin's dwindling supporters want someone that represent's their views, they probably should move to Louie Gohmert's district.

    As if that makes her look any better. It just shows she's got a really thin skin. Sarah Palin could have been something... like ... 7 years ago. Who is she now? A has been.

    It doesn't matter what theory you want to believe in why she quit. The fact she quit her term as governor made her a quitter.Someone who can not be trusted to complete her term in office.
    "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"

    I don't know if quitting the governorship because she couldn't take the mean comments or because she could make more money on Fox and speaking tours is worse. Greater philosophers than myself will have to solve that puzzle.

    Edit: okay, I have an opinion: leaving for more money is worse, but that's neither here nor there.

If she quit because she could make more money. Then that shows that she is for sale for the highest bidder.Which really isn't any different than any other politician.Then again politicians are supposed to be pretend that they are not for sale to the highest bidder.

    The pols do try to maintain that pretense, but voters are not fooled.
    Then again, most incumbents are re-elected.....I guess the incumbents are better actors than we think.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.
