Palin's only shot was that she was able to spew the right-wing spin on things regardless of what's right or wrong, true or false. Her dedication to feces-laced spin usually bent toward fear, hatred and war is really all she has and the reason she was embraced by the neocons. A very good dumb-as-rocks, zero-conscience puppet.

I remember people were saying things like "She must have really scared the democrats to have them so upset... there must be some validity to her." But I think really people were just in shock that an obvious mentally retarded female chimp in a red dress would be walked on stage and sold to the public as a viable candidate. I think that blew everyone's mind... followed by the horror of how many people bought into that chimp.

Fascinating and information worthy of it's own thread. Seriously, there are claims made I was unaware of but no links provided for me to confirm. Unfortunately, this thread is about "The Enigma from Wasilla" and I am often accused of derailing so I'd prefer to remain on topic.

ON TOPIC:

I continue to believe she is not qualified for POTUS since her bra size is larger than her IQ. Funny if you stop and think that if Ms. Palin is so worthy of all the respect and adoration, shouldn't she be Vice President right now? Did she somehow transform into the savior of the Republican party as a result of bailing on her elected position as a half term Governor and penning her books or reality TV Show? She has had ample time to brush up on world politics and economics while cruising around signing books on the Tea Party Express bus and writing talking points on her hand.

I suppose I just don't get her mass appeal. But if somehow she got a brain transplant between now and 2012, I might offer her my consideration.

Regards....kk

I was thinking about threading it on its own when I looked for a thread to link to and found none.

We can derail this thing together, or move it over to the new thread once i feel like expanding it a little bit more


I look forward to more debate the closer we get to Nov 2012! Many people here take the debates as insults (as we can see throughout this thread), I might lean right, but I try to stay intellectually honest, as I can tell you do too.

What I find incredible is the basic premise that Palin is stupid.
Obama smart, Palin stupid.

Who says Obama is any smarter than a box of turnips?

Why can't people just be honest and say, "I hate Sarah Palin because she might end the socialist meal-ticket I'm currently getting".

C'mon folks! Be honest. Palin might bring about smaller government. She might have to bring about personal responsibility.

OMG! PALIN MIGHT MAKE ME WORK? BETTER CALL HER STEWPID!

Just because political ideologies differ, do the members of ATS have to stoop to the level of the MSM?

Debate the issues. Unless you proctored her IQ test NO-ONE has the ability to determine her intelligence. Unless you are all magic and can divine her IQ.

Anyone who is educated will tell you the same thing. She is simply a media face and is not to be taken seriously. In fact, most candidates should be ignored. They have big business at heart, no grasp of the constitution, want constant war and protect the major interests far ahead of the peoples. We need someone to dismantle the machine instead of maintaining or, like past presidents, building upon it. Things have to change for real, otherwise the next hundred years or so is going to be one miserable descent into poverty and control that would make Orwell vomit.

Both the left and right won't question their candidates unfortunately. Just look at this thread, arguments over her vs. Obama! They ARE BOTH FREAKING TERRIBLE. CUT THE CRAP AND DISCUSS THE REAL ISSUES LIKE OUR LACK OF FREEDOM, UNJUST WARS AND OCCUPATION, BODY SCANNERS, PRIVATE PRISONS AND LOBBYISTS E.C.T

I question the intelligence of anyone who thinks Sara Palin is a viable candidate. She has little experience leading people. She's a talking head - that's all.

I went there.

Obama has said a lot of stupid things lately. Here's a list of some other stupid things he's said that aren't getting much press coverage:

* "Bush doesn't care about China because it's full of black people."

* "We don't have to worry about the cost of my federal programs because at my last visit to Long John Silver's I got a map to pirate treasure."

* "I'm running for mayor of the U.S.!"

* "Countries in the Middle East don't like the Jews since they took for themselves the largest country."

* "My favorite type of pie is devil's food."

* "My grandfather was a ninja turtle."

* "My middle name will help me in foreign affairs because it will make other countries think I have a bushy mustache."

* "Ow! Fire hot!"

* "I do."

People also reportedly thought they heard Obama misidentify Minneapolis as a state, but he actually said nothing stupid at that time. He was just misheard since his head was stuck in a bucket.

Thanks for your reply. I've wasted no time in reading it.


This thread is about Sarah Palin's credentials or lack thereof to serve as POTUS. Nice try to derail though.

Not ignoring the issues sir just following ATS T&C. I've had many posts removed "Off Topic" and don't want to waste my time typing to have things go missing. I like it here and don't care to lose posting privileges.

But if you'd like to start a new thread, I'd be happy to chirp in.

I might.


But since you provided Obama's college history as a reference to Palin's, I thought it pertinent to the debate.

That was one of my favorites. I think what he meant was; he had been to 50 states in 7 different states of mind and only has one bottle of scotch left.

She is no less qualified as the current POTUS. I would not support her as President because I don't think she is a serious person, in the same way I would not support Ron Paul because I don't believe he is a serious person either.

1/2 term as Governor of Alaska is insufficient experience. A bunch of years tossing spiff to unions and ethnic minorities coupled with two years as US Senator is as insufficient, as the results of the past two years have shown.

I would certainly hope that after this folly with a lightweight, the voters of the US will actually elect someone who has demonstrated competence as an executive, either within the government or private sector. That certainly no guarantee of leadership however, as demonstrated by the complete failure, Jimmy Carter who did have executive experience.

She would be a terrible candidate, either for President or Vice President. She is over exposed, that tired, home spun BS is very old and at the end of the day, I don't think folks would take comfort the thought of her sitting across the table from Putin. Putin would be laughing, as would Ho were Palin or Paul to get elected. The international community would rip the bark off of both of them.

I agree with ya. I'm sick of hearing about her to be honest and she has no experience, which is actually why I posted the question. Why do they even bother talking about her running
It's a joke.

I agree - we need someone with experience as an executive to fill the -executive- office of the national government. I would prefer it to be someone with primarily private sector experience over being brought up in the culture of government (the military has shown me that people who have nothing but military/agency experience tend to be some of the worst in leadership positions).

Palin doesn't have that experience. About the only thing she is good for is endorsing a valid candidate as those who like her will appreciate her endorsement, and those who don't will just wish she'd shut up (like they already do).
