What really needs to happen is for McCain to lose the current Republican primary for his Senate seat, on the issue of shamnesty. That might take Palin with him. Then, the less noisome Republicans could have a say.

Palin makes a great cheerleader.

I bet misogynistic slime meister Carville can't wait to begin attacking Palin in earnest for his Democrat patrons. Perhaps he could start out with one of his Clinton-era goldies about dragging a $20 bill through an Anchorage trailer park.

He won't have to attack Palin because 70% of the country believes she is not qualified to be president.

They would love it if it were true that the GOP is a monolithic entity that might "decide" that Palin is their candidate.

But, of course, just like last time, the GOP is going to have a series of competitive Primaries. The Public will make this decision.

If Sarah somehow comes through that process as "The Candidate", she will have proved herself in front of THE PUBLIC already and the Dirty Demos had better watch out.

"Mud" ... I think that was a $100 bill, not a twenty. Lots of inflation since the day when a twenty would get ya what ya want.

The author of the news article wrote, "Bush said the emerging conservative Tea Party, for which Palin has become the torchbearer,...."

What I find most interesting here is how the MSM reporting LEADS its readers into certain conclusions by the use of certain words.

First the writer claims the Tea Party is "conservative" (whatever that means), and labels a group of groups who have many individuals who would deny that label.

Second, the writer concludes that Palin has become the "torchbearer". While I'm not a "Tea Partier", I think there's a big difference between what the individuals think and the LABEL attached to Palin's "position".

To me it looks more like Palin has been GROOMED to go in and defuse the dissatisfaction, and to lead in certain directions which will be no threat to the corrupt power structure.

Do you really think she has the brains to come up with a real plan? I've never heard her say anything that would indicate she's a real leader/torchbearer ... and not just a pretty face.

No, just like Obama, Palin is a front personality for the real power, which cannot expose itself. She's a "red herring" of sorts, put there to distract the same folks who think Jerry Springer is relevant.

As long as Sentinel and other writers present their opinions as "news", and LEAD their readers to conclusions, they are not "reporting news", but creating consciousness and thereby influencing policy.

General, What the liberal news media has still not figured out is that we are the silent majority.

Carville wants her to be on the ticket because that is the only chance The One has for a second term.

Yes, but the "silent majority" is no longer relegated to silence. Before the blogosphere, we were induced to BELIVE certain things by the monopoly of the MSM. They're still trying to lead us though, see my post above.

The opinion expressed in this forum is a better indicator of what the public really thinks than what the mainstream media TELLS US we think.

The majority is only as silent as it self-censors itself into being.

Is that why the "silent majority" lost the last election? After 8 years of Bush you guys still have some explaining to do.

Yep, on one hand they tell us to FEAR HER.

On the other, they encourage her Nomination.

Folks, this is EXACTLY how they used to talk about Ronald Reagan before he KICKED JIMMY CARTER OUT.

Ha!

I am a liberal. I love Sarah Palin. Remember that conservatives are the ones always feeling threatened by woman's rights.

I love Sarah. I want her to win the republican nomination. She would be such an easy win for Obama.

Romney might be harder to beat, but has no chance in the primary. Once again the gop will be defeated by their own constituency.

The only way anyone can be a successful candidate for any national office (or for that matter, any important state office) is to cause alot of media attention, suck up to some powerful rich entity and play the political game and pretend to be a reformer.(seem familiar??). Yup yup yup. Time and time again.

Yep, and, if you aren't tweedle dum or tweedle dee.....?

take Sarah Palin for instance....

You get treated like they treat Sarah.

Frankly, I think she'd be a really good President.

THE FACT that she doesn't believe that she knows everything could really help our country.

Because, let's face it, look at the mess that Oh' Bummer - our "special" KNOW IT ALL - has made.

Oh, BTW, they just leaked the ACTUAL REPORT - suppressed by "Leadership" during the so called Congressional "debate".....

Medical Costs are going to SKY ROCKET FOR EVERYBODY thanks to the health bill.

As if we didn't know that already?

It's just the Law of Supply and Demand and simple arithmetic.

THIRTY MILLION NEW "customers" - no real increase in the numbers of Doctors, Hospitals and needles.

There's simply no way that prices don't go WAY UP.

Thank you very much "Leadership".
