Our government is becoming more of a circus sideshow every waking second, please let us be spared of this.

If I even venture near the thought of Palin or her possibly being our next president...

INSTANT migraine!

Pending brain explosion...


For those who support her...you deserve her as your president. I think that's fair enough.

I love the comment my Conservative father told my mother about Sarah Palin. He mentioned she doesn't hat the intellect to be President and that President Obama is worse.

I also think that the only way she would win is by blind support from women. I agree that too many women support her just because she may seem comparable to them, or similar, or simply because she's female. If you want to vote for someone just because they remind you of yourself, why don't you run for president? It reminds me of a common parenting mishap where parents become more of a friend to their kid than a parent. We aren't looking for a president, we are looking for exactly what we got, dancing with the stars. Let's elect her because she sounds just like the hokey neighbor next door, she's just like us! ...Really?

The "face" of US power is irrelevant.

Obama, Bush, Palin, none of it matters.

Do you honestly believe that a country of 300 + million people is governed by a single person?

I don't because it is not humanly possible. No person could ever gather and analyze all the required information to do it.

The only reason you have a "President" is so the people can hear from a single voice.

I wouldn't care any more about Palin than I do about Obama or that I did about Bush. Until the system is changed, they will all act the same.

You're totally right, but I don't even want to see her as "the face"...
It matters in the sense that I'll have to hear about the face for four years. Bush was only good for verbal gaffes and entertainment/amusement purposes and I'm afraid Palin's situation would be no different.

Honestly no. I wouldn't want Sarah Palin to be in any position of authority. She's openly claimed that our country is based on "Judeo-Christian" principles, which apparently means she's completely ignorant of history and the existence of British Common Law as well as having never read the Constitution.

It depends on the opposition.

Maybe you'd prefer "the gaffe machine".... Joe BIden?????

What I find disheartening about this debate is that some of the American public has embraced the trailer trash mind set/ethic and can be sold a presidential candidate the same way that "entertainers" like Hanna Montana, emanem, Brittany Spears, etal, are sold to a consumerist society and think they are making an informed decision. It's not just exgov Palin but most of the marketed, packaged, manufactured scumbags that assume or are told, they have the knowledge and experience to lead a once great nation. Dark days, dark days indeed!

Perhaps the old cliche is appropriate after all..."America has the best government money can buy"

Even though I agree with your premise, I cannot agree with picking on Palin, Palosy, or anybody else. I cannot see how she would be any more, or less, incompetent, unprepared, corrupt, or "evil", then the Bushes, Carter, Obama, and so on...

The problem is not with Palin, it's with the sheeple, that keep electing these baboons into office. Maybe, instead of pointing fingers, at this or that public figure, some sheeple might consider buying a mirror, looking into it, and seeing what they are projecting on society...just a thought...

A society of idiots, will only consider idiots as their natural leaders, any enlightened person will frighten them away, and terrifyingly show them how inadequate they are...the sheeple will never permit this, their afraid of being showed what they really are...empty vessels, waiting for the masters orders

So, what's the alternative?

Should we dis-enfranchise the majority of the population, who are too declasse to know what is good for the republic? I mean, it's been done before; the founders used wealth as a handy label for social class, and decided that only property owners could vote.

Maybe the problem is that democracy really does come close to giving the people what they want--is that what you're saying?

I dont understand this raging blind hatred people have for Sarah Palin , she is a married mother of five (I think) she is self made (a feminist's prerequisite) she quit a job (millions of people have done it) she is successful , she seems nice , she has far more experience than President Obama had when he was running for President , she is attractive (voice is a little anoying though)


I dont hate her.. I have significant problems with endorsing her as someone I feel is capable of running my country. I see something in her that is dangerous. Saying she has more experience than Obama is kind of pathetic. My fat aging fiscally irresponsible mayor has more experience and an education that rivals Obama's but I sure as hell dont want him to run my country either..

People don't know what they want! Critical decision making has been replaced by marketing, advertising and promotion. That's not democracy....

With a huge marketing campaign, the right buzz words, flash and repetition I could sell Americans that cannibalism, and sex with animals is an an acceptable life style.
I despise the word "sheeple" but go to any large shopping mall, sporting event, rock show and tell me what you see!

It is true, the saying. They only get sold because they have the money to sell themselves. Anyone with good intentions it seems doesn't have to financial means to make it onto a ballot realistically. It's more complicated than Palin or the sheeple. Everything ties into another issue. There's too many issues. Something's gotta give.

So, what do you recommend? What form of minority rule would you prefer? Plato's philosopher-kings?

I read through a few postings here, and just want to say 'thank you', OP, as I was just thinking of taking a shower.

I'll draw a bath after I read more of the thoughts here. It is nothing to scoff at. They NEED her, the zionists do, and have consistently coached her since she became the latest in a long line of sayanim.

Again, thanks for drawing this important matter to our attention. Must wash...

I akin the question to the same as asking if one would like "Britney Spears" to be President. We are not exactly dealing with someone who holds a strong character of intellect here. Palin doesn't even know which side of the Korea's the US is Allied with. There are far more intelligent and worthwhile Women out there that could do a better job the Palin, and yes... this is all about how daft she is as a person and how much of a risk that is to the US and abroad.

Palin simply lacks the brains to make a presidency work period. Stupid people shouldn't run "guvermunt".

Women -hate- Sarah..they are absolutely offended at her existance..not because she is a nice piece of a00...not because she is a republican, but because she is a complete trashy moron that may represent what women in the white house will be like.

the polls show that she fails miserably in the women demographic for independent voters...it is like saying "How about for the first person to ever represent your gender as POTUS...we put in a porn star...that represents everything you chicks are...right?


mhmm...ya...won't happen, shouldn't happen, and if it happens...expect every single woman with a ounce of dignity to grab a pitchfork and oust her by force.

As in one of my earlier posts, I'm all for giving the people what they want even if it is a fantasy, illusion based on some psychotic ideal rooted in the 1950s. If the people accept the ads and elect Palin......fine. A Mama Bear Theocracy has a nice ring to it.

I'm fortunate that I can expatriate myself and watch it all on TV in a country that has an appreciation of irony and the absurd.
