And someone tell me how calling a woman, who was an elected Mayor, Governor and only the third woman ever nominated (after Shirley Chisholm and Geraldine Ferraro) as Vice President "caribou Barbie" NOT a T & C violation?

Seriously...at best it's childish. At worst it's a churlish misogyny.

I gotta tell ya, TrueBrit, IMO you have a better handle on Trump and the current American political scene than 99% of American voters. Your assessment of Trump was on the money. It almost seems to me that a significant segment of the American electorate has willfully signed onto a suicide pact. Is there such a thing as a mass psychotic breakdown?

And now, as if Donald Trump’s cupboard isn’t already stocked up with crazy, here comes the biggest peddler of them all, Sarah Palin. I don’t know if her endorsement of Trump will make any difference or not, but her 7th grade political analysis sure fits the bill. And what a wonderful power-couple they make. Let’s face it, how could anyone possibly compete with the combined forces of 2 of America’s most beloved reality tv stars? Can’t be done. Now, just to put icing on the cake, Trump should announce Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty as his running mate.

Actually, I thought the British Parliament debate the other day over whether or not Mr. Trump should be allowed entry into Great Britain was both hillarious and sad. Unfortunately, it probably served as encouragement to Donald Trump supporters.

If you enjoy risk-taking behavior, but still want reasonable odds for success, instead of voting Trump this Fall might I suggest lighting up a blow torch and charging naked through a meth lab; there should be one in your local community.

Seriously, I don’t think Trump has the temperament to be President. He’s too hot-headed and quick on the draw. In those extreme, consequential situations where it’s crucial that cooler heads prevail, I just don’t see Donald Trump taking the lead. Actually, I agree with those who think Trump has no intention of becoming President. He knows quite well it’s not in the cards. His whole campaign has been nothing more than a narcisistic theatrical production starring the wonderful and exciting Mr. Donald Trump. Besides Trump bathing in the glory of all the praise being showered on him by his loving and devoted followers, it makes good business sense. This campaign will open the door to many future business opportunities, and he’ll reap the rewards all the way to the bank. Don’t ever get the wrong idea - he’s not in this to fight for the little guy.

Don’t be a chump with a vote for Donald Trump...

Surely any votes that may have crossed over to Trump from the democratic side in the general election will now be lost?

Palin is as toxic as they come.




Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, will endorse Donald J. Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, officials with his campaign confirmed. The endorsement provides Mr. Trump with a potentially significant boost just 13 days before the state’s caucuses.




Palin is polarizing as can be, pretty much everyone on the left hate her...

www.washingtonexaminer.com...




If Donald Trump gets bumped out of the Republican primaries and runs as an independent third party candidate, 36 percent of Republicans and a whopping 19 percent of likely Democratic voters would support him, according to a new poll.


thehill.com...



About 20 percent of likely Democratic voters say they would buck the party and vote for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a general election, according to a new poll.




Yeah get in line with the Trump hate
youtu.be...

Oh and those as well

So does he, and it doesn't seem to have bothered anyone.

I have to know though ... What do endorsements really matter? Has anyone ever really waited breathlessly for this or that person or newspaper to endorse a candidate so you could decide if you were really going to vote for them or not?

Honestly?


I think most people make up their own mind and don't let celebrities or organizations choose for them, but endorsements do give you an idea as to what demographics support any particular candidate. Palins endorsement suggests that a segment of Tea Party voters prefer Trump to someone like Cruz.

To whatever extent your claim is correct about Palins effect on others, I cannot help but chuckle about the thought that someone got her to do that as a way of nobbling Trump.

cheers

a reply to: queenofswords not very PC was it. I guess some men need to have a bit more respect for women. You know like the Donald, but when Donald does it, he's just speaking his mind.

No I think they still like cruz just some are beginning to realize he can never become president. He will get dashed with that dual citizenship and the million dollar loan his wife took out for his campaign he failed to disclose from his wifes work. Companies just don't go loaning money without expecting something in return. To get 1 MILLION from an investment banker like goldman sachs you are bought and paid for. And don't think that didn't play into Plains decision to endorse Trump. Sanders went after Hillary and her connection to golman sachs talking about how they bought the secretary of state. Then went on about how she accepted money from them and how they are trying to buy washington here is his comment.
In Sunday’s debate, Sanders went on: "Secretary Clinton — and you’re not the only one, so I don’t mean to just point the finger at you, you’ve received over $600,000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs in one year. I find it very strange that a major financial institution that pays $5 billion in fines for breaking the law, not one of their executives is prosecuted, while kids who smoke marijuana get a jail sentence."

Seriously, where did this lady come crawling out from? She s a quitter, semi-trailer park Jerry sienfeld laughable family ethics. On what value does her endorsment make? Is she even anything anymore? Well one thing I do know is I can't stand her voice, it's as bad as nails on a chalkboard.

I'm equating Trump with Rowdy Roddy Piper. When people think he has crossed the line he just moved the line.

Thanks for the OP, Gully. The thread deserves a bump for hope.
My hope is that yet another great draw for the band flagon will cause
a reconsideration of exactly what we're cheering about, and whom for.

After Ted Stevens was gone, I profess no knowledge whatsover of
the environment or politics involved with Alaska getting Sarah Palin:
all I know is that she did quit in the middle of a term; and that alone
is huge to me in disregard of anything else.

This is news I hadn't expected; it's tough to be right all the time,
Mr Trump. You didn't make it--- and if you didn't know about this endo
you've been set up.
I still see a hair trigger on the Bernie button if he shoots his foot with
her and it goes any further... because she's informed voter repellant.

I am not a conspiracy nut, but [religious figure]! From the start, this had director Bill's stink all over it. I say this because

IT WAS SLICK WILLY THAT TOLD TRUMP TO RUN...

then Trump started to clean the house, trying to clean the stage for Jeb Bush. He is drawing all the extream, crazy, fringe elements of the Republican party out and uniting them of populist/extremist one line jingoistic ideas.

This election is shaping up to be the scariest election in the history of the POTUS. Palin scares me. This is horrifying. I only wonder what HTS might say at this supreme melodrama.

What Palin was called there is child's play compared to what I've seen Hillary Clinton called on ATS. If posters can get away with that then you need to grow some thicker skin when seeing insulting things said about Palin.

She is not a member here. It would violate T&C if she was involved in a discussion here and someone called her a name, but she's a public figure. We are free to criticize her openly.

And... Who cares what Sara Palin thinks? Really? Especially about politics and running the country? She's a hater and, as someone said, they clump together. Birds of a xenophobic feather...

Simply being a woman does not earn my respect. Why should it? The way she's acted in her life and her short-lived political career does not earn my respect. And as Krazy said... look at what members have said about Hillary!

She's a cheeleader.

Remember that popular girl from high school? The good looking one who always got her way, who everyone fawned over and was ultra popular? Always wanting attention?

That's Palin.


And you're just a guy on the internet.

That's quite crass to dismiss her because she was a cheerleader, good-looking, fawned-over and "ultra-popular", even though I doubt your insights. I don't wish to seem like I'm on a moral high-horse here, but such ad hominem is basically worthless.





That, and she's a Christian that supports guns. Other than that, I haven't seen any other reason why she's so hated by the left. Oh, and some llibertarians. She was destroyed by liberal media and some can't get past that so they continue to hate her for no reason.

She's not hated. She's actually well-liked because she embodies the stereotype of the "typical Republican" that makes talking politics fun.

She was destroyed by the media because she has a tendency to say stupid things and has proven time and time again that she has no idea what a VP does or how the federal government works.

It's a real life troll for the Republican party.

She hasn't done anything to be hated about. She's just STOOPID. I don't hate her. Like Trump, she has no idea what it takes to govern a country, especially one with a diverse population. She's not worth hating, IMO... A waste of energy for sure. She should stick to murdering wolves from helicopters.

Awww! Poor baby! Of course, she's an innocent victim of the big, nasty, liberal media! LOL! Sorry, any ire she experiences has been brought on by her own actions and words. No one had to "destroy" her. She destroyed her reputation all by herself!

You wrote a fairly long post for someone that isn't worth your time to hate. Nah, she was destroyed by the liberal media. I haven't seen other people hating on her, in fact, we support her. Of course, we understand fully that whenever the left hate someone, there's a good reason to like that person.
