Sorry, Pal. We'd only give it a 35. It doesn't scan, the words don't tell a story, and it isn't any good to dance to.

I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss Sarah nor to belittle the strength and resonance of her message....

Especially, considering the "high media fluff content" and strong arm thug (just fire the troublesome Inspector General) reality of the current Administration.

Even if she personally may eventually fail, a lot of people in the USA know what she's talking about.

You can only remember the elementary school days because that's as far as you got.

You also just insulted every special needs child out there, but take comfort in the fact that they moved on to a higher grade.

It's true I've insulted all the retarded kids out there. By comparing them to you and your girlfriend, I've sold these kids short. Although all of you are mentally challenged, at least the kids have moral compasses.

What is she talking about, her mouth moves but she says absolutely nothing, her shoe size is higher than her IQ .
Maybe the anti socialist queen can tell us how she put windfall profits taxes on the oil companies and hands each citizen 2000 a year.
Or this
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin employed a lobbying firm to secure almost $27 million in federal earmarks for a town of 6,700 residents while she was its mayor, according to an analysis by an independent government watchdog group.

Marlin, Buddy, ol Pal, lighten up! You are so easy to bait! But,um, if I am the one who writes like an idiot, how is it I'm smart enough to pull you along? Also, why did you forget your question mark? Man, THAT doesn't make you look so art-smay yourself. Oh, and it was "plastics." Run back the tape and find that part again.

LOL....can you guys ever make sense?
1. Fox News is the most watched TV cable show because it reflects a "fair and balanced" view.
2. Rush Limbaugh is the most popular political talk show. Liberally slanted talk radio failed.
3. The Democrats win elections because the media is liberal.
4. Conservatives are out there living real lives while liberals are sitting at home in front of the TV.
I mean, really, maybe a nationally standardized course on logic would help.
Nahhhh....you're just too far gone.
Just a question Publius:

If Fox News is the "most watched" cable news network (not show), how is it that the media helps Democrats win elections?

Logic would suggest that if Fox is "fair and balanced" and it is the most watched news network, then there are several potential scenarios for why Democrats continue to win elections:

1) Fox news isn't as influential or far-reaching (audience-wise) as you claim it to be;

2) Fox news is part of the media cabal and therefore is actually helping Democrats get elected, since it is the "most watched" network; or

3) Fox news isn't as powerful and far-reaching as you suggest.

Your "logic" theorizes that the reason Democrats get elected is that the media has a liberal bias. But Fox news supposedly doesn't have a liberal bias and is the "most watched" news channel, so how is it more people watch this channel and get their propoganda (oops, I mean news) from Fox news, yet Republicans continue to lose ground?

If Republicans and conservative-leaning commentators dominate the airwaves (Fox News, Limbaugh, etc.) why are they doing so poorly?

Surely if more people listen to Rush and watch Fox News, they must represent a majority of people and therefore should sway elections toward Republican candidates, not Democratic candidates.

Your "logic" needs some clarification.

<quoted text>Jennifer made a perfectly valid point. Palin is a has-been or never-was and her family is a bit off. She made no comment on any other family.
It is you who is showing a lack of intelligence.
She's more than you'll ever be. Sarah Palin is a respectable modern day successful woman that was absolutly destroyed by the left wing media. Goes to show, that's how ugly Americans can act towards one of our own in the face of a competition. Before the campaign in 2008, most Americans hadn't heard of Sarah Palin. After the campaign, she's a household name. You should do yourself a favor and study her accomplishments. It's a shame that the left wing demon-crats forced her out of her job in Alaska. She's done so well there. They destroy her now, so she can't be a threat in 2012. I think she'll rise above it.
Your ignorance is showing.

Oh, please share those accomplishments with us. We're all waiting with eager anticipation.

And also please explain how the democrats "forced" her out? Every article I read says she resigned. Her choice. She wasn't impeached or removed from office. She CHOSE to leave. But please give us your thoughts on how she was forced out. And remember that nearly every governor in every state has some type of legal entanglement to deal with, so the fact that there were ethics investigations is not a valid reason for quitting.

Choosing her as a running mate was insulting to the American public. Doing so was dangerous and unpatriotic. And now the fool actually thinks she has something to say. She'll be remembered as an accident of history.
