    Have you ever felt inadequate when trying to describe Sarah Palin? I know I have. She is so obviously incompetent, but exactly how she is incompetent has been difficult for me to put into words. I don't know why - but it has.

    This morning, I had the pleasure of reading an article by a guy who NAILS the essence of Sarah Palin. The article is titled: "Palinism 101" It is written by a guy named Jacob Weisberg and may be found in the August 16th edition of Newsweek.

    The article opens with a definition of Palinisms:

    Does this guy have her down, or what? Listen to this:

    At one point, Mr. Weisberg likens Palin to "an unprepared high-school student trying to bluff her way through an oral exam by mugging and flirting."

    I don't know about y'all, but that is certainly how I saw (see) her. Let's delve a little further into the article . . .

    And finally . . .

    There is more to this article. I urge you to read it in its entirety at:

    Palin's Gibberish Is Funny but Could Be Dangerous - Newsweek

    Now, before you cons waste a lot of space wondering why us Libs are so "obsessed" with Palin, let me cut you short. I admit to being not necessarily obsessed with her, but certainly interested in her - in much the same way I would be interested in a train wreck. I am also interested because enough of you Republicans keep beating the Palin drum to keep the hope alive in my heart that, somehow, she WILL find her way into the Repub nomination for POTUS in 2012. Oh God, how I pray this happens . . .

    From Palin's famous interview with Katie Couric in 2008, when Katie asked her if there were any Supreme Court decisions she disagreed with other than Roe v. Wade:

    It never stops. Palin on energy:

    Oh, God . . . :rofl:

    Isn't Newsweek that publication that sold for a dollar? Hmm, I guess they're getting a bit desperate.

    Yeah the Left isn't threatened by Palin at all. I don't know how these rumors get started. Libs exhibit a perfectly normal reaction to Sarah it's not like she gives Lib men penis envy or anything

    That's what I don't get. they scream that they aren't worried about her but trash the piss out of the woman. I KNOW Biden is an idiot, and no threat, and so do most people, so there is no concerted effort to prove he's an idiot. No need..........
