Anyone naive enough to compare nuclear retaliation with a schoolyard fight should be kept as far away from politics as possible. So stupid!

Dear God.... I keep thinking that the campaign to dumb down our educational system (aka outcome based teaching) has been wildly successful. What else would explain this woman's ability to get people to listen to her? I fear for my country. I really do.
January 05, 2011
Um, what country? We're just a lump of land where no one gets along.
January 05, 2011
Ack. No, I can't get started here ranting about the demise of national sovereignty in the face of the multi-national corporations who drive our economy and our politics as we "consumers" (formerly "citizens") blindly file into the feedlots and dutifully fight un-winnable wars that benefit no one but the profiteers.. ::takes a breath:: No, it's too early in the day to go there. =op

Whatever happened to Abbie Hoffman's dream of "internationalism"?
January 05, 2011
I think it's been devoured by a far more sinister concept of a "world without borders."
January 06, 2011
That wouldn't be such a bad thing either, so long as the people aren't some conformist, autonomous society. And the entire idea of borders, boundaries, and territories is the product of humankind's need to name, measure, and compartmentalize things so that they become "controllable".
 
January 05, 2011
LOL! Oh my goodness... :-P
January 05, 2011
Didn't you hear about this?
January 05, 2011
Nope. But I'm not surprised she made the comparison.
January 05, 2011
It was in reference to Obama's anti-nuke speech last Spring. She basically said that not having nukes stockpiled for defense was like having a kid on the playground who won't stand up for himself. Which is ridiculous because standing up for yourself on the playground doesn't result in killing thousands of people or massive environmental damage.
January 05, 2011
Ah yes...now I vaguely recall it. I agree with you. Part of the trouble is that I've stopped listening to anything this woman says, lol. Can't take her seriously.
January 05, 2011
Gee, I wonder why. ; )
January 05, 2011
LOL. Indeed. :-P
January 05, 2011
You were saying something about hearts being good?!
January 05, 2011
(laughs)
 
January 05, 2011
That's just the way Mama Grizzlies roll.
January 05, 2011
Grrrr... still stupid! LOL!
January 05, 2011
And damn proud of it too. You betcha!
January 05, 2011
I wonder if she can still see Russia from her house and I wonder if she knows what they're up to. LOL!
January 05, 2011
Only on a clear day--and I doubt if she has any idea what ANYbody is really up to!
January 05, 2011
She probably knows what Tina Fey is up to. LOL!
January 05, 2011
That I REALLY doubt--although I suspect the reverse might be true!
January 05, 2011
I'm sure she notices when she sees a prettier, smarter, and sassier version of herself on SNL. She must know. LOL!
January 05, 2011
I think SNL is too leftie for her.
January 05, 2011
It's on NBC which is owned by Universal/General Electric, so my guess is she would watch that and Fox. I doubt she watches CBS.
January 05, 2011
We're going to have to submit that question for her next interview. The public wants to know.
January 05, 2011
Really? I would be surprised if anyone even cared.
January 05, 2011
You really can't tell when I'm being sarcastic, can you?  =)  Or am I equally unable to tell when you are?
January 05, 2011
To quote #2, "That would be telling." ; )
January 05, 2011
You're faking it.
January 05, 2011
Faking what?
January 05, 2011
Pretending to know that I was being sarcastic and so you were being sarcastic back to me.
January 05, 2011
But how could I be pretending to be sarcastic with you if I didn't know you were being sarcastic to begin with? Gotcha. =)
January 05, 2011
Back up a bit. I TOLD you. =)
January 05, 2011
Yes, you told me you were being sarcastic after the fact that I responded, in which case your argument is equal to the age old question of whether the chicken or the egg came first... I'd say that depends on whether you're the egg or the chicken. Don't get me started on the cat in the box. ; )
January 07, 2011
Granted. They see her as the greatest thing to come along since Glenn Beck.
January 07, 2011
See, now you're just trying to make me nauseous.
January 07, 2011
Nope. It's just a variation on the truth. Instead of "arbeit macht frei" it's more of an "Acknowledgment leaves you forewarned".

 As a longtime follower of politics, I am surprised by the power Sarah Palin has in the American political environment. She repeatedly demonstrates that she lacks the knowledge to run any major organization, for example she thought Africa was a country. She also lacks the courage and decency to complete her term as governor of Alaska, opting to resign and offering some of the lamest excuses ever put forward in American politics.    Her political star will fall quickly as the …
review by . January 19, 2011
I suppose the good news is that Palin is eminently forgettable. Folks will be quoting Ronald Reagan and William Buckley long after Palin is gone, but are very unlikely to find her much of an inspiration any more than Dan Quayle will be. Her name will be forgotten in the sands of time while the intellectual giants of American politics, whether conservative, liberal, libertarian, or otherwise will be remembered. Heck, most Tea Partiers I know don't like her. She is eminently unelectable and yet she …

Calling Sarah Palin "divisive" seems like an abuse of the word, when you almost have to create a new word in the Urban Dictionary to describe her. Maybe to go "Palin" as a verb would be better:   Boss: "I went Palin on my staff and now none of them trust each other."   Supervisor: "Divide and conquer - those years of Latin must be paid off."   Boss: "Someone just set fire to the copier machine." The Problem With Palin© …
review by . November 17, 2009
This is the first time I've reviewed an actual politician.  It's hard to be "unbiased" in this sense, but Sarah Palin is an interesting woman.  When Palin is on television... or when she speaks... people listen.  I listen.  Politics is not one of my strong suits, but I paid an enormous amount of time to the past election and I tend to watch a lot of the news and read a lot of things.  Blogs, comments... youtube comments (which will turn you into a retard) …

Country girl goes to the
It never ceases to amaze me to see how many undereducated people get a gig as a talking head on TV.  The shame of Sarah Palin's story is that she was done a political disservice by McCain.  I may not agree with all of her views; however, she was a rising star in the GOP and if she had been developed properly, she could have been a great leader and possibly very viable candidate for president someday.  Unfortunately, I believe that her reputation was severely damaged with her Kattie …

A diamond in the rough??
She is a person who resonates with the folks in middle America who "cling to their guns and religion."   Her new book "Going Rogue: An American Life" has been a runaway bestseller for weeks much to the consternation of her political enemies.  At the same time Sarah Palin remains the primary target of the slings and arrows of the "chattering" class of liberal politicians,  those in electronic and print journalism, the Hollywood …
review by . November 22, 2009
There's a reason why McCain and Company kept her under wraps.
Sarah Palin is what's wrong with so called "middle America".  She is the face of intolerance, ignorance and lack of education.  Whenever she opens her mouth nothing but trouble emerges from it.  Palin should have never even been considered as a running mate for the Republican Party in 2008.  During the 2008 elections, the Grand Old Party was so desperate for votes that they nominated her in a desperation move to try and court the disappointed Hillary Clinton supporters.  …

Sarah Palin is a dangerous, irresponsible religious fanatic. She was unfit for the mayor's office in Wasilla and certainly has no business either seeking or picking folks for higher offices.
Quick Tip by . August 15, 2010
A true beleiver which is fine. Not ready for prime time. She could have been a great conservative leader had she been developed properly. Now she has painted herself in a political corner as unprepared, ala Dan Quayle. I hope she sticks to making money, I could never vote for her as Pres.

About this politician

Wiki

Sarah Louise Palin; née Heath; born February 11, 1964) is an American politician who served as Governor of Alaska from 2006 until her resignation in 2009. She was the Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States in 2008.

Palin was a member of the Wasilla, Alaska, city council from 1992 to 1996 and the city's mayor from 1996 to 2002. After an unsuccessful campaign for Lieutenant Governor of Alaska in 2002, she chaired the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission from 2003 until her resignation in 2004. She was elected Governor of Alaska in November 2006. Palin became the first female governor of Alaska and the youngest person ever elected governor of that state.

In 2008, Republican presidential candidate John McCain chose Palin as his running mate in that year's presidential election, making her the second female candidate and the first Alaskan candidate of either major party on a national ticket, as well as the first female vice-presidential nominee of the Republican Party. Since the defeat of the McCain-Palin ticket in the 2008 election, there has been speculation that she may run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012.

On July 3, 2009, Palin announced she would not seek reelection as governor and that she was resigning, effective July 26, 2009, eighteen months prior to the completion of her first term. She cited ethics complaints that had been filed following her selection as running mate to John McCain as the reason for her ...
