    well, certainly they went out of their way to try to paint her as an idiot.

    she was also attacked for running for office even though she was a mother (doesn't she realize she won't be able to take care of her kids?), and "not being a 'real' woman" (because, you know, she's pro-life and stuff).

    Andrew Sullivan, for example, attacked her by claiming that she was lying to the nation and Trig (her kid with Downs Syndrome) was actually Bristols' first child

    The press went nuts on her. a Conservative Woman who can give the kind of speech that she did at the convention? talk about a threat.

    hilariously, she was even attacked for her "lack of experience". by the same press busy fawning over a man who had been a Senator for all of 10 minutes (and whose inexperience is now showing).

    Maybe it was the fact that she herself provided more soundbytes that one could possibly ever use?
    the 14 hour interview was an incredibly stupid idea, pushed by an aide whom we have since learned had interesting motives.

    All this bitching about Palin being called dumb when Obama was attacked for being a Muslim, Christian, Atheist, Communist, Fascist and Nazi in the same sentence(Of course you'd have to watch FOX to hear it all in the same sentence) is ridonkulous.
    I would like to see a single instance of FOX news calling President or Candidate Obama (for example) a Muslim? a single instance?

    You say that like it's SO impossible. People have done stranger things for their children and grandchildren. My nephew spent the first 2.5 years of his life thinking my parents were his. If the parent doesn't step up, it can't be proven either way.

    I want to see an original birth certificate!!!!

    FoxNews.com - Obama a Muslim! Lincoln a Catholic! FDR a Jew! Why Americans Don

    In 2010, in the midst of tensions surrounding wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as economic hardship from the Great Recession, it is widely believed in the United States that Barack Obama is Muslim. Coming on the heels of decades of anti-Muslim sentiment, the rumors seem to have had several roots: The first is the ambiguous nature of Obama’s upbringing, in which his father was a Muslim and he spent formative time as a child in a Muslim country; the second is his political outreach to the Muslim world and his support of the rights of Muslim-Americans. The rumors have been widely repeated by Obama’s political opponents.

    Perhaps the most surprising thing about the news this week that 1 in 5 Americans believe Barack Obama is Muslim is that so many people greeted the news as a surprise. Americans taking out their discrimination toward minority religions on the president of the United States is as American as apple
    pie; the custom has been going on as long as there has been a presidency. George Washington was the subject of widespread grumbling that he was a more loyal Mason than he was a Christian.
    Exclusive: Obama's Religious Upbringing Explored by Author Stephen Mansfield - Hannity - FOXNews.com

    The double speak of FOX News speaks for itself:

    MANSFIELD: I tried to, yes.

    COLMES: He is not a Muslim, as some have tried to say.

    MANSFIELD: No, no.

    COLMES: Never was a Muslim.

    MANSFIELD: Practiced in his youth with his father lightly, very lightly, but no, never officially a Muslim, because you can't really be one until after adolescence. And he wasn't...

    COLMES: And there's no question he is a
    The implication here seems to be that Obama was not a practicing Muslim. Righteven though his father was. Which would make him a Christian correct? Wrong. This is what followed a few days later:

    Gabriel, with her ghoulish grin, let loose a torrent of hideous attacks in her hideous, shrieky voice, “Because of his actions… pandering to the Islamic world, apologizing on behalf of America to the Islamic world, praising the Islamic world while putting America down,” etc.

    Later, after Hannity went “through the history of this” with his own smearing of Obama as too Muslim-friendly - and “Democrat” Caddell said the findings “signal” that Americans think “the man we thought we elected and the man we’ve elected, we’re not sure!” – it was time for Gabriel to shriek again, this time with a slew of distortions and falsehoods:

    Gabriel said, "The signs and the information were all out there. President Obama was born into the Islamic faith raised as a Muslim as a child, had a father who was a Muslim, he attended Islamic schools.”
    WILLIAMS: Yeah. I mean, I think they're more accepted in corporate America, more accepted in the media. When you talk about things like experience, I mean, Hillary Clinton's had a term in the Senate, now starting her second. But I don't think it's that much greater in terms of foreign policy experience than Barack Obama.

    HUME: I don't agree.

    WILLIAMS: And I think in terms of Obama and race, I still think that there's -- and don't forget the idea that, you know, he comes from a father who was a Muslim and all that. I mean, I think that, given that we're at war with Muslim extremists, that presents a problem. And I think there's a lot of -- for all the openness to Obama and the whole idea of a fresh new start, I think race continues to be an issue.
    It`s the `some people say`tactic.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I imagine it'll get old once it tears your country apart. Or maybe it'll just pick up steam. XD

    I do hope you're being sarcastic, but if you're not....

    Trig Palin was born on 4/18/08. Bristol gave birth to Tripp on 12/29/08. Could you explain how Bristol could have a baby in April and another one in December of the same year?

    Isn't it obvious? Trig was born super prematurely

    Re: I want Palin on the 2012 Republican Ticket!

    Palin should definitely be the GOP nominee. This is from the latest AP poll released today:

    In terms of winning the 2012 nomination, the question is how Republican-leaning Americans view the contenders. Palin comes out on top. Among adults who identify themselves as Republicans or GOP-leaning independents, 79 percent view her favorably, and 17 percent unfavorably.

    Republicans get it.....it is those in control of the party that are trying to bring Palin down, not the Democrats.

    Don't listen to those who control your party, Republicans....when it comes to the primary, vote for conscience and vote for the candidate who should get the GOP nomination - Sarah Palin.

    Right on Disneydude. Keep pushing Palin and do not rest until she makes that acceptance speech in the summer of 2012.

    your final bit is telling. i tell you what, i'll give you this. concerns about Trigs' birth certificate are about as legitimate as concerns about Obama's; and both are indicative of the anything-is-acceptable-so-long-as-it-slings-mud-against-someone-i-don't-like mindset.
