Using the out-dated, highly insulting term "mongoloid" is a disgrace in this day. It's mean spirited and just wrong to use that term.

Watch, within a very short period of time, Sarah will be indicted for something that would have cost her the job she has now so mysteriously quit. Running for president? Not after walking out of a job she was voted into half-way through her term. Always has been and always will be a loser.

I love seeing the surrendercrats (and some Repubs too) getting their panties in a knot over Palin. I think it's because they see a genuine human being who has been an effective chief executive, and that has an excellent chance of de-throning the teleprompter-reading community organizer in the next election.

I for one am happy that she is gone. A person who doesn't know the differance between a country and a continent should not even be considered for president. She is not the sharpest knife in the draw for sure. A hamburgers short of a happy meal is more like it.

she needs to asure the women voters she will let rof v wade stand and let stem cell go forth...she cannot let herself get tied down with a few zealots, she must show shes open to the "new" ideas and American problems, she needs to get in the center.. dead center and bend at times ....but be senseable, not PC. she has time and berry sweto is tripping over his telepromter.....

"right", and Obama will never mispeak because the media never asks him any questions that he didn't get to preview.

Wonder who's dumb!

So, her quitting as governor is the best thing for Alaska? Yet some people still think that this is a great move for her to position herself as a presidential candidate? The ramblings and contradictions in her speech are mind numbing. Oh, and I loved the lame duck comment. That's right Sara, when things get tough and may not go your way, the mark of a great leader is to quit.

One thing you can't accuse Newsday of, and that is being objective in the reporting. And really, Tina Fey, are you proud of yourself for helping destroy a good person?

Right, and your genius president said there were 57 states and his vice president said people watched FDR on tv. Yeah, they're real brain trusts.
