    Interesting column here from Larry Elder.

    I was not aware GW Bush had better college grades than Al Gore, a higher IQ test than John Kerry, or higher SAT scores than Rhodes Scholar Bill Bradley!!

    Creators Syndicate – "Sarah Palin, do you guys really like her?"

    My dad's doctor asked me this a couple of weeks ago. His smile seemed to shout, "Are you guys crazy?" I had taken my 94-year-old Republican father to see him several times, but politics never came up. Did the doc really want to go there? It went something like this:

    "What's the problem with her?" I said.

    "Well, she's, she's —"

    "Stupid?"

    "All right."

    "Really? Why, because she isn't as glib or articulate as you elites like? She didn't answer Katie Couric or Charlie Gibson the way President Obama would have?"

    "Yes — I'm one of those elites."

    "How stupid do you have to be to take on the establishment in Alaska and win? How stupid do you have to be to have — at the time Republican presidential candidate John McCain picked her — an 84 percent popularity rating in Alaska? She had more executive experience than Obama."

    "Well, she doesn't come across as prepared."

    "I don't know what qualities you look for. But I'll tell you what counts for me: character, competence and vision. She's likable. She has a strong, stable marriage with a down-to-earth husband. She has convictions that I agree with. Government too big? Check. People taxed too much? Check. Stay on offense in the war on terror? Check. For me, what's not to like?"

    Wonder if Bush is smarter than Obama?

    Palin smarter than Obama?

    Hmmm... :)

    Perhaps - Perhaps not. She was polling nearly even with Obama not so far back. She would have much work/damage control to do yet to repair the character damage inflicted upon her in 2008 - I would certainly agree with that.

    At any rate, I was not aware that Bush had an IQ higher than John Kerry, higher SATs than Rhodes Scholar Bill Bradley, and better college grades than Al Gore. (actually I do recall something about the Gore grades...)

    Now that I think about it, John Kerry does appear rather dim witted, and Al Gore has turned into a far greater joke than Palin could ever be.

    I like Bill Bradley though...:eusa_angel:

    I'm not saying that she wouldn't win if she ran. It's possible. More ridiculous things have happened. However, I honestly think she's not cut for the job, plus I deeply disagree with most of her views and some of them have the potential of taking American society a 'few steps back' instead of forward. I seriously do not think she is that 'bright' either based on her speeches and debates. She just doesn't strike me as a leader of America ... in the past, now, or in the future and it is not - let me repeat it - NOT - because she is a woman. I believe that for example Mrs. Clinton would make a much better 'leader' than Palin ever could and I disagree with Mrs. Clinton on some issues as well.

    Do you see American taking "a few steps forward" these days?

    Perhaps into the abyss?

    Maybe a few steps back from the brink of absolute insolvency and a bankrupted future for the next generation would be a good thing?

    So tell us Ms Palin.....

    - What newspapers and magazines do you read?
    Winks....I read them ALL

    - What foreign experiece do you have Sarah?

    You can actually see Russia from parts of Alaska. I've never been to those parts but since I'm Governor that gives me foreign experience
    When Mr Putin comes to America, he has to fly over Alaska. He doesn't actually check with me or anything, but his flying over counts as foreign experience
    Alaska is right next to Canada you know, I have no idea who the Prime Minister of Canada is but that counts as foreign experience too!


    Could you get better answers from an ex-beauty queen?

    Under Obama care prescpiptions will no longer be available, you will have to fill out a form wait in line and the administrator will get back to you in a year or two. Then be told you can't have it cause it is not on the list of pills available or they are out of it!!!
