    Sarah Palin was treated like a sad little excuse during the 2008 presidential campaign and very few people came to her defense. Now, she is still being ruthlessly attacked by the media and her political opposition. If you look at facts given by her opposition it simply does not make sense. Sarah Palin had more political executive experience than Barack Obama. She's not stupid despite what folks at ABC or MSNBC might say and she has a real track record fighting for what she believes in. That last point is important to note because Barack Obama also had a verifiable track record fighting for what he believes. The difference of course if that Obama campaigned on a moderate platform that was not in line with his track record. His campaign was a smoke screen to steer folks to his side, now it's those folks who are asking themselves why they didn't listen and look more closely at his record. He didn't hide anything, he came right out and told the world where he stands in his speeches, his voting record and his books.

    Sarah Palin stands for something, she stands for everything the liberals detest. She is not trendy, she's not cool for school and she believes in God and Guns. Can you imagine, a white women who hunts is against abortion and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. A successful women who made it into a Governorship on her own. She's more like real Americans who work for a living. The establishment cannot allow her to gain traction or they risk losing the popularity contest as more and more Americans are going to watch the real Sarah Palin and realize that she is not the woman from Saturday Night Live.

    What this amounts to is many of Palins opponents using their own opinions to steer the facts instead of allowing the facts to steer their own opinion. This is fine when openly expressing an opinion but when this is done in connection to reporting, well you get what amounts to a Keith Olberman or Rachel Maddow telecast.

    I'm certainly not ready to place the American Crown on Palin, BUT, you really have to be a horses ass to try and compare how she has been degraded nationally to what Obama has experienced.

    At least try to be believable!

    Same thing applies to Palin that I apply to Obama ... if you can't deal with the shit flinging, you shouldn't become a politician.

    did they question where she was born? Have they called her Hitler? Do people accuse her of being a terrorist or a communist? Have people questioned her christian faith saying she is a muslim?
    This is what politics is now, if she can't handle it that is her problem.

    I agree, however, I just fail to see where Palin has not dealt with it. Seems to me that she is still standing up right and moving right through it.

    but she quit her job when things get too hard, that isn't moving right through it. That is giving up.

    Listen, I vote in my own self interest.

    I am honest.

    Who would I rather see naked, Obama or Palin?

    I have already seen Hu Jintao naked.; reports of Chinese world dominance are highly exaggerated.
