What makes anyone think that the non-Palin fans fear her? That they insult her? Now that's interesting logic. I insulted Bush constantly. I wasn't afraid of him, I just thought he was a warmonger idiot. I insult the twilight series. Do I fear it? No. I just hate it. I think it's incredibly stupid. Anything on Disney channel is sure to get an insult from me. Fear? Nope. Just disgust at what children have available to watch these days.
I insult Limbaugh, Palin, Beck, O'Reilly, Bush, Steele, Olberman, Scarborough, Obama, Pelosi, Clinton (both of them), and many others. By Palin worshipers logic, that must mean I fear them all a great deal!... but in the real world, It just means I don't like them. Enjoy the delusions, I'm sorry you can't properly cope with reality. That people can disagree with you and not be complete idiots, sheeple, or mindless servants. That people can disagree with you and still be calm and logical, avoiding shouting matches and throwing objects. Whatever you need to tell yourself at night to help you sleep. More power to you.

stuff it. that's enough. we don't need to hear anymore about sarah palin being dumb. it's already been said like a kajillion times and your version is not going to add anymore weight to it other than to yet further embarrass women who have to endure the insults hurled at palin every 2 seconds. just quit already. go find some other dead horse to kick around
This wasn't an easy campaign. Even before she joined Senator McCain in this presidential campaign, Governor Palin had demonstrated that she was an accomplished politician: she defeated the incumbent governor in her state's primary and a former governor in the general election. Her knowledge of international affairs might be limited, but she beat Alaska's political establishment, learned the intricacies of the state's dominant energy industry, and put her stamp on state government-all the while caring for a husband and five children.
Her evident tenacity served her well. Before the election, she acknowledged to Good Morning America's Elizabeth Vargas that "the constant barrage, a kind of spin on my record or my positions" could "change someone's perceptions" and was the likely reason her support among women fell about 40 percent.
There were bountiful substantive issues dividing the candidates, all of which warranted a thorough and even tough debate. But some of the attacks on Governor Palin were blatantly sexist cheap shots-questions about how she could be both mother and vice president, for instance. Some of her angriest critics were vicious and vulgar, substituting profanity for argument. Many of these attacks came from many so-called feminists.
Since the year 1870 approximately 303 women (world-wide) have run for the presidency or head of state of their countries. 43 have won their elections. During that time frame the following women have run for POTUS. Thus far, none have even made it to the national ticket. Only Geraldine Farerro and Sarah Palin have made it to a national ticket, as VP’s. When you consider the rest of the world, the United States is far, far behind the curve when it comes to women running for the head of state – and winning.
So basically Palin has no right to criticize Obama's economic plan?
What is the reason behind that logic?
when you peel back the pretty, shooty layers of the Palin onion, there's no onion. It's just a conservative boiler plate mad lib: 'Freedom is good and taxes are--ooh I need an adjective--how about, I don't know, silly?' And the worst part it's a mad lib delivered as though it were the hard-earned wisdom of a life well lived
