    It strikes me as odd how easy it is to get people talking about Sarah Palin, as if she's relevant in any tangible way. I mean, I'm a Republican, I like her, I think she'd make a better leader than Obama, but I'm not in love with the discussion of her (negative or positive) the way most liberals seem to be.

    They're usually only talking about how dumb, stupid, and ignorant she is (which is more empty name-calling than hard-hitting analysis, for those of us over the age of 9), but do they not realize that any person you make a big deal about is going to be popular? The old adage of "any press is good press" has never been truer.

    The reason why Sarah Palin is such a big deal is because liberals still have fake-outrage boners about everything she's ever said or done. Conversely, the reason most people are souring over Obama is because the Right isn't obsessively infatuated with who he is as a person. We're more concerned about what kind of executive he is. If the Right went on over Obama the way the Left goes on over Palin, he'd still have 50% approval ratings or better.

    I *just* got through saying, basically, the same thing.
    I see her as a quitter that couldn't handle the scrutiny.
    The left gives her more cred than I do.

    The reason she gets the attention is that she is the only Republican shooting her mouth off. In a game of political "Whack-a-mole" Palin is the only one who continues to stick her head up.

    Let another Republican show some leadership and then he or she will get attention too. Right now.....they are few and far between

    You cannot blame Liberals for the record ticket sales to the Sarah Palin Traveling Road Show and Theater of The Absurd.

    We have our own problems.

    Nancy "I Cannot Ever Open My Freaking Mouth Without Setting Back Progress By At Least a Decade" Pelosi.

    Saturday Night Live - Nancy Pelosi - Video - NBC.com

    Both these broads, Palin and Pelosi, need to be on a melting iceberg near the South Pole, banished from our public lives. Then they can reunited as one another's Evil Twin or have their lezzie girl crushes fulfilled or WTF they are both up to.

    They are like America's Tweedle Dum And Tweedle Dummmer. And THIS is the Feminist Nirvana I once marched for? Shit.

    But yanno, the pair of them do make for great SNL skits! LMAO. :clap2:

    It's true. The more the Left attacks Palin, the more people on the right come to her defense. I personally find her to be a lightweight when it comes to experience (one of the same critiques I have about Obama). The attacks elevate her to a stature that experience and ability wouldn't if she were left alone.

    Palin is here to stay. that is what upsets the left.

    I myself find it very amusing she gets under their skin as much as she does.

    Go Sarah.

    I have a feeling there arent too many lefty's who are paying her money for her book or her apperaces or worse, 10k for a pic of her and bachmann.

    Here is a hint, they are all righty's spending money on that tripe.

    Stephanie, i understand what ou are saying, but seriously, there are people out there who actually thinks what she says makes sense. They are probably the same idiots who follows Rush.

    Doesnt that scare you a little? They could live next to you and everything.
