the air head blatters again. she made herself a target by the mis informed statements she uttered. by her instagating racist remarks during her rallies, by her seemly lack of information regrading the duties of the VP of this nation. and her dishonsty in general.

Anyone remember the movie "Muriel's Wedding"? Towards the end, the small-town, high-school beauty (once a local queen bee, now well faded) who had made life miserable for the main character (once plain, shy and fat, now blossomed and succeeding well beyond that limiting small town) screams into the camera that it just isn't fair Muriel got more in life than she did because (and here the camera gets in tight on her pig-like nose and bulging eyes)..."I'M PRETTY!!!!!"

Thats Palin in a nutshell. Emphasis on "nut".

This just proves her total disassociation with reality. Couric, by the way I think is a lightweight, only asked Palin about the newspapers she read. She couldn't name even one. Not even the "Wassila Daily News" if there is a paper in Wasilla. Couric didn't expoit her, her total ignorance buried her. And Tina Fey is a comedian screwering a politician. Does she really think she is the only one? It's been done before Washington was president.

You libs are simply lashing out at what you percieve to be a threat! She's a successfuil very intelligent, personable, honest, feminist who just so happens to be a conservative, God fearing, family oriented Christian who does not believe in murdering her fetus, who isn't afraid to take on the oil companies, and corrupt good-old boys club (both Democrats and Republicans) in Alaska, and who can shoot a gun and fieled dress a moose in a climate you would freeze your behind off in while you whined and complained because you couldn't get your double chocolat, low fat, lattte at your corner Starbucks! Too bad she hooked up with the no personality pretend Republican, J. McCain! Oh that's right, I forgot the media wanted McCain to lead the Repubs because he was the most liberal of the Republicans until he secured the nomination then they sided with the con man Obama! Palin can take care of herself.

The only chance of her being a threat is if MORONS like you put a whackjob like her in a position of power to make a bigger mess of this country.

If you're going to quote someone, at least do it correctly! Maybe Sarah Palin can concentrate on improving the educational system of Alaska.

Oh, which misinformed statements? Can you be specific? And I'd like to hear the instigating racist remarks clarified. Can you give me a quote? Lack of information regarding the duties of the VP? Are you nuts? Before 83 million viewers, it was Biden who got that part wrong and Palin had it right. Back up your statements with facts, or are you just another parrot, repeating whatever you like hearing? You make me embarrassed to be a Canadian.

Improving the educational system in Alaska....hmmmm.

Palin, when confronted with her college-hopping history (several schools... and some for just one term) told an interviewer that it was a common way for Alaskans to do college. Apparently it is seen as a safe and economical way to see a bit of the world. No need to get one of those pesky passports and go to foreign lands (Palin didn't get a passport until two years before she erupted into the national spotlight)! After all, they can see Russia and Canada from their home turf up there in Alaska! It's just like world travel! No need to study too hard, either. Just learn the pageant walk and sell your soul to the extreme right. Your future is assured.

On of many misinformed statements:

(on Russia)***We have trade missions back and forth. We-- we do-- it's very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where-- where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border. It is-- from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there. They are right next to-- to our state.***

Idiocy about the Office of the Vice president:

***Yesterday, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) sat for an interview with KUSA, an NBC affiliate in Colorado. In response to a question sent to the network by a third grader at a local elementary school about what the Vice President does, Palin erroneously argued that the Vice President is “in charge of the United States Senate“*** http://thinkprogress.org/2008/10/21/palin-vp-...

Statements allegedly tinged with raciscm (though I'm not sure I agree with the allegation, I do believe she was race baiting):

***"Our opponent ... is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country," Palin told a group of donors in Englewood, Colo. A deliberate attempt to smear Obama, McCain's ticket-mate echoed the line at three separate events Saturday.

"This is not a man who sees America like you and I see America," she said. "We see America as a force of good in this world. We see an America of exceptionalism."*** http://www.breitbart.com/article.php...

So, "are YOU nuts"? Why us a Canadian supporting Palin?

How much longer are we going to tolerate Communists playing the blame game instead of taking personal responsibility for the consequences of their own actions which is what made this country great because after all God knows there's lots of extreme leftists out there doing just that while pretending that they're God-fearing rock-solid conservatives and if this Sarah Palin character thinks she's fooling anyone about her so-called "conservatism" when she obviously refuses to take responsibility then we might just as well let her Comrade Putin march through her backyard which just "happens" to be in such a convenient location for her to allow the Commies to roll right in some dark night while she thinks we're all bamboozled by her phony patriotism then I just don't know what's become the American character and maybe this is God's way of waking us up, no thanks to stealth atheists like Sarah Palin.

"That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Helping the—it’s got to be all about job creation too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans and trade—we’ve got to see trade as opportunity, not as competitive, scary thing, but one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today—we’ve got to look at that as more opportunity."

I'm searching for something this stupid out of Caroline Kennedy's mouth, but not finding it yet.

Imagine if Caroline Kennedy was involved in something like Troopergate, the AIP, attempting to ban books, tweaker son shipped off to the military, pregnant 17 year old daughter...

Yeah, right, the media picked on Palin and is handling Kennedy with kid gloves.
