    So you're sure she's running?

    Did you like it when he said Texas should sucede from the Nation? How about when he laughed about the guy that he refused to hear the case of that was probably executed buy innocent due the fact that the fire inspection that got him convicted was a farce? (He allegedly set fire to his house with his kids in it.)

    Being from Indiana I can tell you he won't even make it out of the starting gate. It won't take much digging to have him leave in shame.

    Just about any Republican > Palin = Obama

    That's generally my equation for who I'm likely to be voting for in the next election. As long as the Republicans don't nominate Palin it's going to be an amazingly easy answer for me. If its Palin, I honestly don't know if I can bring my self to cast a vote for someone who gives legitimacy to conspiracy nutbags

    I'm no Rick Perry supporter, but I have to defend him here. He never once said that Texass should secede from the union. He did say that people are talking about it and that would be a bad idea.

    I voted for Mitt Romney. He's intelligent, well-spoken, charming, but a bit of a neo-conservative, which isn't popular right now. He's also a successful businessman. He would probably be able to work across the aisle with Democrats.

    Unfortunately, American politics is less and less about reaching towards the middle and more and more about rooting for individual sides, so I really doubt that Romney would win the GOP nomination.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
