Something that is very threatening and needs to be destroyed by the left.

She is an honorable, authentic, incredible woman that’s been the victim of the press and media, while Obama was their poster boy.

The power of the press and media to build or destroy was never more evident than in the attempt to ruin Palin as compared to their promotion of Obama. The intensity of the Palin character assassination was matched by the gushing exhuberance in endorsing the Obama candidacy. In the Palin case the media quickly adopted a strategy of ridicule to capitalize on criticizing every aspect of her being. In the Obama case the media crafted a positive image from every angle: family, character, career, etc. Magazines, TV newspapers presented wildly flattering reports. Care was taken to minimize every Obama foible or defend against any negative perspective. Of course, since the hard core leftists have no honor, the achievement of their objective justified any action, any distortion, any ploy. America has seen the 21st century version of Masters of Deceit. It is tragic that the purveyors celebrate their shame.

Freedom from religion is my spiritual belief.

The woman doesn’t have the intelligence of someone who has a MA, much less, an intellect to write and understand legislation. A senator Palin, would be a slap to any thinking person, sorry. Lots of us have Palin’s intellect, but we don’t have the hubris to think we are senator or presidential material.

However, what you are implying is some sort of a religious “test”. Last time I checked, the CONSTITUION garded against a religious test for anyone running for office. Separation of church and state, while important for american politics, is tradition, not Constitutional law. I love how Barack Obama was protected by you people in regard to what he believed – was he a muslim? OMG you can’t even ask that question, you liberals have said. What did he really believe in Jeremiah Wright’s church? How dare you even as that, you have said. But when it comes to Sarah Palin, you demand that she be excluded from office because what she believes. There’s only one word for this double-speak: hypocrisy!

who’s the name caller in all this? Gov. Palin has been
smeared and slandered by the left wing unmercifully. The
Democrats like to think of themselves as the party of tolerance, but they are the least tolerant of anyone who doesn’t think in lock-step with them. The media sent hundreds of people to attempt to dig dirt on Gov. Palin and came up with nothing but a few old beauty pagent videos. How many reporters were assigned by the same newspapers/TV/magazine publishers to research Obama?

Read the constitution. There is no separation of church and state. That phrase was only used in A LETTER from Thomas Jefferson to a church in Connecticut. Freedom of religion means no government church, not freedom FROM religion.

Why don’t we just allow Alaska to succeed from the union like they want, then Palin can become Queen of Alaska, and Ted Stevens can be king. The corrupt Queen and King can then rule over the corrupt nation of Alaska.

Hope she gets the Senate nod to position her for the 2012 election

Is there much of a chance that a recount would put
Stevens behind?
