    I consider it good publicity, because its entertaining.

    I think the reason many liberals twist and shout about her is because they see that she is popular, and the reasons for which she is so popular are ridiculous.

    Otherwise I agree, stop fanning the flames and the flames will die out.

    Exactly.

    Honestly, I find her commentary vapid and silly.
    I can't understand why any serious conservative would listen to her.
    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.

    Question Re: Sarah Palin?

    Palin is the queen of rhetoric. Why anyone would pay to listen to her blows my mind.

    Celebrity, some find her attractive. Playboy would shell out big bucks to get her to pose nude if they thought she would, and big bucks for the airbrush artists.

    Shes a typical conservative appealing to those with less education and intelligence.
    But the "tea bagging" conservatives are real people and as such should be respected by the Liberals.

    Why thank you ever so much. You managed to be insulting and condescending, yet call for respect for others all in the same post.

    Impressive doublespeak. Perhaps you should go into politics.

    Re: Sarah Palin?

    Regarding Palin...

    She isn't a serious candidate for any high elective office anytime in the near future.

    She has her faults, yes. The unbelievable, unprecedented media smear campaign saw to it that those faults were magnified and highlighted and "in your face" every day of the campaign, and has continued the same treatment even after she is no longer a candidate.

    If BO had had the same degree of media magnification and anal probing applied to his every fault, every questionable decision, every dubious association... he wouldn't have won the election.

    I doubt anyone could survive that degree of media smear with their reputation intact, including Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed, or for that matter Mother Theresa.

    I could have cared less what the media said about her. I let her speak and I listened... and I didn't like what I heard, plain and simple.

    It's really hard for me to judge her these days though... part of me thinks she represents some major views of the conservatives and other like minded people, so she deserves credit for rallying these people and encouraging more people to vote. Whether I agree with her or not is irrelevant... I for one would love to see every eligible voter in America voting no matter what party they vote for.

    Another part of me feels she is feeding off of the frustration of the American people and encouraging people to vote a certain way while playing the same minds games the media played on her, but directed at the Democrats. Encouraging voting for conservatives is one thing (I for one would love to see more conservatives in office trying to bring down our debt and deficit while balancing power in Washington), but encouraging people to vote for a more liberal conservative (i.e. McCain) shows me she is more in favor of getting more Republicans in office. Independents can be conservative too! (Mostly I just don't want to see any politician getting re-elected this November )

    But personally, I don't like what she has to say... but that's mostly because she is too conservative and religious for me. Not saying those are bad characteristics... I just feel a middle ground is better than extreme left or right views. And IMO she seems like someone who would love for the Christians to be running the show in America, which I also disagree with.

    Re: Sarah Palin?

    Smarter than people think.

    When was the last time a losing VP candidate got this much press coverage? I'm pretty sure the answer is "never". This is in large part because the press hates her. But her brilliance is in keeping the press hating her, and thus keeping herself relevant.

    I realized this when the whole thing about her brother getting health care in Canda thing happened. She conveniently forgot to mention that medicine in Yukon wasn't socialized back then. But then, why would she mention that in the first place? The only reason I could see her doing it is to get the left in a frenzy about it, and then make them look bad for not doing their research when it's pointed out that the medicine was not socialized. It's the same thing she did with "death panels", and the "crib notes", and any number of Palin non-scandals. She cleverly says and does things in such a way that, without really making much of an impression on anyone else, drive her opponents bonkers, making them look bonkers, and thus making the right happy to have her. It's an amazing thing.

    If you despise her, she has you wrapped around her finger, because you're doing exactly what she's set out to get you to do: keep her relevant.

    Dav, the press loves Palin. Palin = ratings. Palin is controversial. The reason she gets so much coverage is simply that people react strongly to her, and strong reactions are good for ratings.
