Brilliant, incicive analysis!!! If we actually lived in your alternate reality where the only thing to do with a stong woman is show her who's boss so you get some say in your castle.
Even if we lived with you on planet Chewing Tobacco, you still seem to mix up "ignorant but energetic" women with "strong" women. And, judguing from your post, if you really did meet a strong woman, you would probably run and hide in your pile of Playboy magazines dating back to the mid 70s.
I always love it when I get a reply from a DFL "puzzy-boy", with the "holier than though", I am so intelligent attitude. My you are full of yourself! Actually, loser it is you who would not know a strong woman, because you are to busy listening to NPR-Prairie Home Companion. Matter of fact you probably look like Garrison Kiellor.

OK, I apologize for sticking your dweeb head into the toilet in Jr. High. But don't take it out on Sara Palin because no pretty girls would touch your dweeb arse! Now get back to that men's toilet stall, Larry Craig is awaiting your toe tapping.

I'd like to see Sarah Palin run for President with Bachmann her Vice President in 2012. Palin/Bachmann in 2012.
Frankly, I would vote for a Danny Quayle/George W. Bush ticket in 2012 and probably for the same reasons. Just think of the ensuing hilarity in every single press conference.

Between Quayle and Bush they MIGHT be able to form a complete sentence (we'd have to wait for a factual statement from them).

No actually your the Idiot. It was Bill Clinton that refused to allow our troops to do their jobs in somalia. It was Bill Clinton who made soldiers stand by as Somali overlords stole all of the aid and murdered anyone who stood in the way. Ask soldier who served why they had respect for the Bush's and none for Clinton.
It was also Bill Clinton who was smart enough to pull us out of Somalia when it was clear that they didn't want our troops there for a humanitarian mission. The Somali's handed us our ass primarily because we didn't expect the warlord uprising.

Strong woman? Get real. A strong women would not quit the job (governor) half way through the term. Only a weak woman makes that move like Sarah did.
I agree 100%. What the GOP REALLY wants isn't a strong woman, they want a woman who is nice to look at, but is as dumb as paste. They been lamenting the loss of "their American" which is essentially the U.S. in the 50s when women concentrated on being pretty and stupid so as NOT to embarrass their husbands.

I agree 100% "Quark". What the DFL REALLY wants isn't a strong woman, they want a GAY MAN who is nice to look at, but is as dumb as paste. They been lamenting the loss of "Their GAY American" which is essentially the U.S. in the 80's-90's when "top" gay men like "Quark" concentrated on being pretty and stupid so as NOT to embarrass their committed "bottom" male partner.

Ex-aide's book paints HARSH portrait of Sarah Palin ???

How could any objective person reach that interpretation of this "sour grapes" book by Palin's ex-aide? I find his negative examples quite flattering of a "real" sensible woman.
No surprise the ex-aide is having difficulty finding a publisher for his written disgruntled attitude ... lacks any resemblance of meaningful, thoughtful criticism of Sarah Palin. The ex-aide has only further embarrassed himself.

Nothing. I am not talking about Obama. Don't change the focus away from Palin. Try to keep on topic. I realize it is hard for you right wing know it alls to pay atention to something for more than 5 seconds, but I am sure you can do it. She is a moron and you know it.

Pretty sure my question was "On Topic" there Scooter...and apparently, based on your response the questioned stumped you, or you had nothing substantive to say...but I'll give you benefit of the doubt and try to frame my question more clearly...I'll type slower too...here we go...ready...here goes...

Why do you think Sarah Palin (the topic of this thread) is in any less qualified to be President than the current President(remember your post below...shine shoes...be president).

<quoted text>It's funny how you scoff at the all who want to post on here yet you are the second comment. You need a life dude. She is not fit to shine my shoes let alone be president. Just come to grips with it and you will feel better.

Both Dems and Repubs need to get over Sarah Palin. To the DEMS: She is not the devil incarnate! To the REPUBS: She is never going to be President!

It'd be fun to read a tell all book about Hussein Obama, but unfortunately, there's absolutely no record of any kind with regard to his college years, place of birth, voting record while he was briefly a Senator (other than voting "present" occasionally), who his old college chums were, girls (or boys) he might have dated, etc. We do know some things about his alliance with activist anti-American Communists like Van Jones, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn and Jeremiah Wright, to name a few. But that's about it. Perhaps a nosy pervert reporter could move in next to the White House and hastily scrawl a "tell all" blockbuster detailing all he "saw". The difference there is, nobody would care about it.
No one would care about it. except you honey.

Not sour grapes, he is going to be making money! Sarah is probably going to pay him too for keeping her in the spotlight.
