    Racism and sexism are of a similar strain, and I do recall a movement of cougars, panthers, or some other jungle cat who wanted Clinton because she was female than moved on to advocate for Palin.

    Also, I know of people who voted against Obama because of his race. One does not have to be "for" something because of race, one can be against as well.

    But there was definitely people who voted against Obama based on his skin color. At best it was a nonfactor, more likely it was a detriment.

    I wouldn't vote for her in the primary unless there was absolutely no other TRUE conservative or libertarian who I agreed with more. I just don't see her as being ready for the job.
    1: I suppose
    2: Not near as many smart and witty things I've heard from her.
    3: I like it. But I see how it would bother some.
    4: She left for good reasons and she left the State in better condition than when she took office.
    5: Makes my skin crawl,... but what else could she do? Throw him under the bus?
    6: Aren't we all!

    Is she ready for the job?

    That (to me) is less important than "can she put together an administration" that can not only "handle the job" but apply Conservative values and take the country in a direction (I feel) it needs to go.

    And, I believe she can.

    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

Someone like Palin, I believe, would categorically deny it as anti business, no matter how strong the evidence was. I don't think this is as true with someone like Obama or H Clinton.
    Palin is a Conservative and an environmentalist (hunting, fishing and prospecting),...

    That's a very un-usual combination,... especially in a woman,.. and even more so in a woman politician.

    I am as sceptable as any about "man made global warming" but even I have a threshold (and I am confident that Palin does too) where I would be able to find compromise and direct independant fact finding comissions to base my policy decisions on.

    The temperature will speak for itself.

    Are you saying that she's a Neo-Con Conservative or a true dyed in the wool Barry Goldwater conservative or Jeffersonian Liberal?

    Why did you bring up her gender? We're supposed to be an equal society where race and gender play no role.

    It appears to me that you are attempting to prove a statement Turtle never made false.

    If I am correct, it is impossible for you to either succeed or fail.

    A suggestion.

    Use spell-check, and perhaps a grammar/writing guide, as your writing style is confusing at times, both for those who support and those who oppose your statements.

    Not to mention, it makes you look less intelligent that you may actually be.

    Much like Sarah Palin may have / Bush II has issues with speaking.

    There, I compared you to not only Sarah Palin, but former Pres. Bush.

    No offense intended, I hope you actually take my suggestions in mind.

    I Think Palin is (as Glen Beck is) more along the lines of a Reagan Conservative.

    I bring up her gender because I f this country is ever to have a woman President (great Role Model for my daughter),... I would like that woman to be someone like Palin or Condi Rice.

    Cougars? cool. you might be right about that and you are probably right that some people voted against Obama because he's black,

    but no matter what anyone says-Palin's far cuter than anything on a presidential ticket in my lifetime!!!
