    Politicians do not respect the people foolish enough to vote for them..Being two-faced liars goes back to day one, 5K years ago...
    We may try to "pay attention" to what they do, but they are so clever in hiding this......form letters, one-way conversations, Ivory Towers.

    Palin should never talk about people class. If it wasn't for her 15 minutes of political fame. She would be on Jerry Springer asking who's my baby's daddy.

    I'm confused. Palin hates blue bloods... but she wants to make sure blue bloods keep their tax breaks...
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    11/24/10

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) denounced the Bush family as "blue bloods" in an interview posted Wednesday and remarked that a mentality like theirs helped to cause the economic downturn. Her comment came in response to a statement made by former first lady Barbara Bush during an interview with CNN's Larry King earlier this week. Asked for her take on Palin, Bush told King: "I think she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there." Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham followed up with Palin, asking if she thought Bush's comment had been planned ahead of time. Palin had this to say:

    "I don't want to sort of concede that we have to get used to this kind of thing because I think the majority of Americans don't want to put up with the blue bloods — and I say it with all due respect because I love the Bushes — but the blue bloods who want to pick and choose their winners instead of allowing competition to pick and choose the winners."

    She then invoked the economic crisis to explain her point.

    "They [blue bloods] kind of do some of this with the economic policies that were in place that got us into these economic woeful times, too," Palin said. "So I don't know if that kind of stuff is planned out but it is what it is. We deal with it, and we forge ahead and we keep doing what we're doing."
    ...snipped...



    sooo anyway, if the Bush clan are "Blue bloods", does that mean the Palins are Bourgeois?
    Yet another reason why Sarah Palin proves herself to be a "not ready for prime time" player. A leader...a class figure might say something like, "huh...Ive never met Barbara Bush but I understand she is a wonderful person" or even "interesting...well...every criticism is an opportunity to examine oneself and learn and grow" or simply, "I have tremendous respect for Barbara Bush and the role she played as First Lady" without responding and coming across as a petulant, butt-hurt child. I dont know who her advisors are or if she even has any...but if not she needs them and if she has them, they suck.

    Barbara Bush is class. Sarah Palin lacks a couple of those alphabetical letters.

    Unlike Obama (Obama, who is the president and should have a thicker skin) he fires back at talk show host, Fox and conservatives and that's not negative, petty and whining?

    Palin takes more crap from the media than anyone I can think of. She fires back a couple of times and that makes her whiney? I wish she'd do it more often.

    Obama does not dismiss a war hero as a "blue blood".
