    Should Sarah Palin become a member of Congress?

    This is a public poll that does not require declaring an ideological loyalty. Do you think Sarah Palin would be a good member of Congress?

    I will vote yes when your poll appears, but only because I don't think Ginsburg is ever going to keel over so we can put Sarah on the bench.

    No, she would just end up being another Michele Backmann or Nancy Pelosi. Intentionally polarizing, largely argumentative, ineffective at working with her opposition, and generally a nuisance with little interest in anything other than grabbing as much mic time as possible.

    On the other hand, she would then fit in well.

    Yes. She has no real business running anything, but is about what the citizen legislator would look like.

    It could be claimed that she would represent a one view of the American public, which is how representation should work. So potentially an correct response COULD be yes - even if you greatly disagree with her stance on issues.

    No. She needs to run and become the GOP nominee for President.

    I figure she could do the Hillary Clinton thing and relocate to a Congressional district or pick the right state and go for the Senate in a very Republican district/state and likely win. She has a huge PAC, huge name ID, and could go back to claiming people are picking on her family thing.

    I do not know. I wouldn't want someone who who quit being governor just because some people said some mean things about her as my congressman or senator. Politicians talk **** about their opponents all the time, Palin probably wouldn't last a week or two.
    "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"

    Sarah Palin needs to stick to her current job, spreading BS.

    It's the one that fits her talents.
