    Would a visual comparision be helpful?

    My question arises from the intensity of some of the expressed negative feelings some of our female posters appear to have for Sarah Palin.

    Question: to remove idle speculation, which can be so deleterious to the quality of political discourse, should female posters be encouraged to post a side-by-side photo of themselves when commenting negatively on the character of Ms. Palin? This should have the beneficial effect of removing speculation that the posters in question are motivated by simple envy and petty jealousy.

    I don't have a lot to say about Sarah Palin, 'cause frankly there ain't a lot to comment about. She's sort of like my tube of toothpaste, even though I see it everyday I couldn't describe it to you if I tried.

    And my picture is right there. A clearer one on my profile. Since it matters to you so much.

    mixedmedia > Sarah Palin

    Discussion over.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Biting satirical comment would be more correct.

    I wouldn't call that biting...something more tired. Like - gnawing. Gnawing satire.

    Who are these people who speculate jealousy is a reason?

    If i need to post a picture to demonstrate i am not jealous, i'll be happy to even tho i am confused as to why it is needed.
