At least I can hide down there…Palin/McCain did not stop the Marxist dictator who will be taking over this country and eliminating talk radio soon….talk radio is free speech….I’m a loser and I’m leaving….I’m a nutcase. I really think the new adminstration is going to make a list of people who don’t support them and I would be on it….

When you’re rich, I guess it’s NOT a big thing. It IS a BIG thing to people who are losing their jobs, homes, their confidence. Inane comments like that are causing people to change their voting. Maybe Cindy can donate $150,000.00 to everyone or sell one of their 7 homes and help the “silly” folks out???

Just try to cover them up and let the public know as little as possibe. In the mean time just gang uo with his liberal media croony and try to steal the election and think the majority of American are so naieve

Her attraction is one that polarises people. On the one hand people can relate to her. She is down to earth, talks directly (when she’s not GOP handled) and can fire up her crowd because she drives her passion home. There is a charm and nostalgia to this character and people like it because they believe what they see is what they get – its not politics.

Saying that, people don’t get politics and the mechanisms therein. The word ‘politics’ has matured to infer dishonesty and spin. Politics however is about persuasion and influence to achieve outcomes. Most of us do it e.g passing an opinion on our colleague and encouraging others to share it. Some abuse it, some do their best with it. When combined with power, politics can be both divisive and unifying. When you’re a VP of a nation you are going to try to represent all constituents and not necessarily just those that have voted for you. You are going to have to work with others and not demonise them if their values are against your own, because at the end of the day, your own values are a guide for you, but you’re working for the collective good of your nation.

We forget the founding fathers were great thinkers and sadly today, those qualities are associated with class. We forget in our passion, that not only do we need to work to satisfy our needs, we need a person to unify a nation – and that’s not Sarah. She will need to work with those Washington Spin chiefs to get outcomes she will need to be the better politician, not through divisive politics but an intellectual that can challenge the norm with intelligence and not Rhetoric. We forget, that to get us out of a mass like a failing economy requires great depth of character and great intelligence to resolve. Calamity Jane might just shoot your baddies, but won’t fix the justice system or Wall Street.

Thanks for passing/posting.
Hello Sarah Palin,
Whether tomorrow’s vote count ushers you into Washington or not, I, and many others want to thank you for what you have already brought to the landscape of American life: honesty, integrity, humor, forthrightness, love of family, honor of life, the reminder that we can openly claim faith in the Creator. Beauty. Not just physical, though striking you are. But the beauty of someone who isn’t afraid of being strong in what you’ve been gifted to use in this life–charisma, intelligence, strong and trustworthy guidance. How we have needed the fresh wind you give tirelessly to all of us…ones who believe as you do, and the ones who will benefit greatly because of your life…even when they oppose all you stand for to the hilt. Please accept my thanks on behalf of millions of people all over this country and beyond for what you have been doing,and I know will continue to do so, whether in Washington, Wasilla or at home. I’ve designed and distributed a few bumper stickers. PLEASE consider letting me get one for your car. It reads
Palin4Prez.
Very sincerely,
Rosie H., Bellingham, WA

She wouldn’t know what’s is like to own a $150,000 wardrobe because she’s more accustomed to a wardrobe north of the 7 figures range.

These people are completely out of touch with reality. Moron is probably too better term to describe them as Larry has demonstrated!
