    I might not like her, but at least she has a Harvard law degree. Not that that has helped our CiC follow the Constitution any better.

    John Marshall, William Rehnquist, and Earl Warren weren't judges first and a great many of our early justices were people who read the law as opposed having gone to law school back before the rent-seekers took over the profession.

    Good point, it has only been a few years in most states where law school was required to take the bar.
    A self educated person, could take and pass the bar, many did!

    We hope her position on such subjects would reflect those of her constituency, no more, no less.
    So in other words, you don't know and neither does anyone else. She never talks about what she would do which is why you can't say anything about her ideas. She has none.

    Obama's situation is not the same as Palin's.

    1.Like I said before the media has their lips firmly wrapped around Obama's cock. Obama could be on video smashing a kitten's head with a brick, kicking a baby, saying some racist or sexist ****, or some other vile **** and the media would pretend the video doesn't exist,label anyone making a big deal out of it as racist and try to spin it in Obama's favor.

    2.Elected officials do quit one office into to move into another office.THey just do not quit.

    really only the fine people of Alaska could truly answer this question.

    plenty of stupid people are in congress, like Michelle Bachmann, Steve Stockman, of course my least favorite congress person is Jim McDermott of Seattle, but hey the people who live in the districts with these bozos re-elect them so who am I to judge?

    Palin needs to run for President of the USA on a third party ticket and be well financed in the effort.
