During the 2008 elections Palin was picked to "shore up the base" of the GOP. Why? Do they really think they need to do this? The base is called
the base for a reason! You didn't need to put a mentally handicapped woman on your ticket to "shore up the base" because she was more conservative
then McCain. I'd bet a billion dollars that it wouldn't matter who had been the VP or even the P on the ticket the base would still vote
republican. Why? Because they are the base!
You needed the swing voters, the middle of the road people. Those are who they need to pander to. Not the base because the base is the base! Will
they learn the lesson in 2012? Or will they add another right winger who can't speak or answer simple questions. Man, I was so humiliated when ever
that woman spoke. Asked a very simple question, what newspapers do you read, and ten minutes of rambling you still don't know the answer.
