Did you just quote my silence? I'm confused.

I think a lot of her prowess comes from anti-Obama'ism - just people looking for something different to express their frustrations. Kind of like how Obama got elected on anti-Bush'ism. The Dem's could've put up a German llama and he would've won!

But hey, gman, if you want to not think about Palin for a month, knock yourself out. I'll be certain not to post the name "PALIN" in any of my posts for a whole month.
Sarah would make a great President! She is a fiscal conservative, understands that the government can't tax and spend America into prosperity, and most importantly she isn't afraid to pull a trigger on a caribou or bear!

She is everything the guy in office now isn't, and we can see how far hope and change has taken us!

It is interesting the view that many people have of Palin, which is mainly from a biased media. I love the claim that she has no experience, yet instead of just being a Senator for a short period of time, she was a Mayor and and Governor.

I think that the main problem is that she is more outspoken than most and harder to control and neither side likes that.

No, I just didn't want to make my post massive so I trimmed the quote.

That's all it comes from and it's pathetic considering Bush, her and Obama are all pretty similarly stupid. She's fine as a commentator, host, ect, but she has no business holding any elected office. Her only political experience is a failed Governorship where she spent half her time out of state and all she managed to do while in office was embezzle federal money and quit. She's a soccer mom with no education, no experience, and no brain. Sure she looks good and can run her mouth, but that's about it.

That's your take and that's fine. Others have differing opinions. Since there are no established qualifications around intellect or experience to hold office, she's certainly eligible.

Actually, the embezzlement issue allegedly happened when she was mayor of Wasilla. It dealt with her home being made of similar materials as a stadium she had built, and it is presumed the same contractor was used. Given that the contractor, Spenard Building Supplies, is the largest such contractor in the area, it doesn't surprise me if she used them. Whether or not she did steal money is still an unanswered question; no one has offered up any proof that she did.

She earned her bachelor's degree in Communications & Journalism at the University of Idaho in 1986. Where did you get your degree?

She can also put food on the table without going anywhere near a grocery store.

Brian, I love your research - it saves me so much time! Good stuff, I had no idea most of that info about her.

Sarah palin also attended 5 colleges to get that degree

Communications and journalism, well that sure beats obama finishing law school at Harvard

sportscaster, mayor and short term governor sure beats Obama just being a civil rights attorney and a senator.....

Man, if we start requiring all of our presidents to come from Ivy League schools, I'm afraid we're going to keep going down the road we're going now. If Obama went to Harvard, I vote we ban Harvard graduates from pursuing public office.
