    She ****ed that state squarely in the @$$

    I put other, as I would have chosen "yes, because I could use a good laugh."

    Yeah, now when people think of Alaska they think of crazy Palin--not a positive connotation. I'm sure Alaskans love her for that association.

    So...even though you said this...

    Thank you for your honesty in answering my questions.

    Are you applying different standards depending on the person?
    Your answer is...yes.

    Your answer is...yes.

    They are not different standards depending on the person. Most elected officials that quit their term in office is due to the fact they moved into a higher office, basically its like they got promoted. No such thing happened with Palin.She quit because people said mean things about her or because her office interfered with their book deals and TV spots. Any elected official who quit the same reasons Palin quit will be treated the same.

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"

    Quitting you term in office because you were elected to a higher office is not the same thing as quitting because someone said mean things about you or because the office interfered with your book deals and tv spots.

    Why do you keep repeating yourself? It does nothing to excuse your hypocrisy.

    Re: Should Sarah Palin become a member of Congress?

    I voted maybe because I'm not sure of everyone who is running. Off hand I would say no and would admit that I won't vote for her. I think she is outdated and too far from the political sphere to really contend in any election. Other than her fan club pushing her into the spotlight she's not really relevant anymore. I think she should continue to live her life and let the country be run by real politicians really. That maybe comes back in here though - if it was between her and a Democrat I'd vote for her. The Democrats have done enough to this nation and I don't believe anyone, much less Palin, could hurt us anymore than they have already.
