    Well, they can't tell her to STHU since she has freedom of speech, and she has her devoted followers, so it will be fun to see how they handle her, won't it? Oddly, I think she's enjoying herself immensely being a thorn in people's sides - and that might apply to both parties!

    It is really quite a pathetic thing to watch...kind of like watching a train wreck. You don't want to look...but you can't look away, either.


    Incredible analysis....

    Most things are in spite of what progressives say....**** many of them claim to be independent but can't list three mistakes they think Obama has made nor one good thing Bush did.

    The pathos is in the depth and vehemence of the obsession. Never have I seen such hate aimed at an individual who never had a direct impact on any of them. "Slut", "Whore", and the C word have been used often, when a mention of Michelle's gangly figure and careless choice of wardrobe and there is a storm of porotest, usually using the word "racist"

    It is rabid.

    And because of that frightening. I have been a reporter and seen mobs form and become riots, and the hate exhibited toward her is the exact same I have seen there...a completely irrational, reptilian, 'food = eat. not food = kill response to the fact her kids showed up at a party.

    That kind of fear is in itself firghtening

    An equally incredible analysis from you - you and Mycroft are on a roll today! What exactly is it about her that generates this type of response? The fact that she handles a gun well and likes the outdoor life? That can't be it because policewomen do the same. The fact that she's sexy? There are many sexy women in this world. The interesting thing is that both men and women share the same dislike of her, so it can't be just female jealousy. The fact that she was the successful governor of the largest state in the US, and was well liked by her constituents? Maybe. I have pondered on this for a long time, and I can't figure it out. Disgust with her butchering the language and sometimes rambling when she speaks I could understand, but why do they seem to fear her? What's your take?

    It's little different that the level of hatred exhibited by many towards Obama. I don't really understand it either.

    Every politician has their share of haters, it's the degree of hate that is unusual in the case of Palin and Obama, but I also see some of the same directed towards Hillary, with many people saying that they find her "disgusting" (in every way, politically and physically).

    I'm not seeing that level of hate directed towards ANY white male politician, so I can only assume that it's some latent or outright racism and sexism.

    Those on the right keep shouting that Obama has divided the country more than it's ever been divided, but I can't help to wonder if it's not racism which has caused this, much more than any of the Obama policies.

    My take is this:

    1. She is against the leftist agenda.

    2. She speaks plainly and honestly...something that few politicians do and something that no leftists politicians do. People know that Palin won't Gruber them.

    3. Leftists have used this ridicule/smear/lie tactic on others they fear...Bush and McCain come to mind, though there are many others. It's really gotten to the point that leftists are unable to bring compelling, rational arguments to support their views.

    About that..........



    Well to be fair, she might not have peddled a lot of those lies intentionally- she does genuinely seem stupid enough to have been fed info and actually believed it to be true.

    Any politician can get their facts wrong, but that's not what I was talking about. I was talking about speaking in plain, understandable language without deliberate intention of lying. You know...not speaking like this: "If you like your insurance, you can have your insurance.", "ACA will reduce premiums by $2500 per family.", "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.", "I won't sign ACA if it costs more than a trillion dollars." etc....

    So your contention is that sarah palin- across the board-- never intentionally lied. That she got ALL those things wrong by "honest mistake". Even if I believe you, it proves my point. TOO stupid for the job.

    I don't know if she intentionally lied or not. If you believe she did, then show some rational proof.

    btw, by your logic, Obama is too stupid for the job, as well...except that we know Obama intentionally lied, thanks to Gruber spilling the beans. Tell me...do you think there is ANYONE who actually believes that Obama ever speaks plainly and honestly? Understand, I'm not asking about those who think his murkiness and dishonesty is a good thing. Does anyone actually BELIEVE he is open and honest?
