Sarah stumping for Democrats?? Now that would be interesting....from the Washington Times
God she is such an idiot, nuff said.
I have to know...is she actually taken by anyone in the US seriously?
No, she isnt taken seriously by me, and i hope not anyone else.
Of course yes, Fox News has still great ratings...
So campaigning for GOP ideals isn't partisan as long as you say its not?
I like how she says she will help those who believe in the "right" things. I guess jesusland has yet another crusader.
No, not at all. She was the reason I didn't vote for McCain. He was actually a great opponent for Obama until that move. I think it showed desperation.
I think it showed just how stupid McCain and his handlers thought the American people were (and proved it in many ways). It was obvious from the second she opened her mouth in interviews that not only was she not qualified, she had no idea what the hell is going on in the world. I guess thats a plus for the GOP however, seeing the massive cheers that guy got from saying " I'm NOT a citizen of the world".
Its a sad day when millions support ignorance, mark another one off the calender I suppose.
It's a trap!
I think it was an ill-concieved attempt to sway voters that were going to vote Hillary for being a woman, who were then going to vote for Obama because Hillary was out, and going "Hey, we've got a wiminz too!"
Now (then) we've got a real historical election on our hands.
Vote McCain: We've got a wiminz.
Vote Obama: He's black.
Either way, history is made. The McCain camp wasnt about to lose out on that oppurtunity.
I still see bumper stickers for McCain/Palin & occasionally, just Palin.
I don't get it, but something are bonkers for her.
The simple-minded love her. And there are plenty of stupid people in the US. Fortunately, not enough to elect here to the WH.
Unfortunately, yes, mostly just the Jesus Freaks. Fortunately, it's not enough for her to do anything serious.
I didn't want to make that statement. I'm trying to be more open-minded. I'm a bit of an odd leftist and I'm very close-minded about the right. Much like how the right typically is about the left, so that makes me no better than them. Hence, attempting to be more open to other people's opinions.
So far, I can only go as far as not actually saying "You're clearly stupid and don't understand what propaganda does to you, do you?".
But I still think it in my mind-grapes*.
*: 30 Rock Ref, for those curious.
Trying to be open-minded about someone like Palin is not the kind of open-minded anyone needs to be. This woman is a cancer on the political scene. That someone who is so uninformed has held political office illustrates just how low our country has sunk.
To be fair, how many competent politicians (if they even exist) are actually in Alaska?
I don't know. But if she's the best they can do, Alaska has serious problems.
I disagree. This is exactly the type of open-mindedness that American needs. If people aren't able to calmly listen to other people's opinions and then calmly consider and offer alternative views, then all is lost. There can be no democracy without rational thought and debate.
I agree with this whole-mindedly, but my heart agrees with Lee too. There needs to be structured debate to further politics and democracy.
I just wish the opponent to democratic views wasn't so ill-informed (in this case. I know not all repubs. are ill-informed.)
agreed, but we need to hold our politicians to higher standards and encourage the debate and thought process rather than mindless rhetoric that we get on both sides.
Your open-mindedness disgusts me.
When she stumps for a Dem candidate, I'll donate $100 to an abstinence only group.
Thank you. I see nothing wrong with being ashamed about someone like Palin. She's an absolute disgrace- a bad joke. All Americans should be embarrassed that we have let politics sink to her level.
"Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts."
That's the problem with being open-minded with people like Palin. There are Republicans that live in the real world with the rest of us and are open to compromise on just about anything, but Palin isn't one of them.
She's a neo-con, just like Bush and Cheney and Rove and that whole gang. And neo-cons do have their own facts. They live in a different reality than we do. Theirs is a world in which man is too puny to cause global warming, where gutting the middle class causes prosperity, and where the rules don't apply to you as long as you're on the side of God.
And on top of all of that, everything they do, no matter how corrupt, is somehow based on the Bible, and since that is God's word, it's not to be questioned.
How do you reach rapprochement with someone like that?
Stump or schtupp?
