I read the article Palin wrote and I'm infuriated that it had a dangling participle!

What was she thinking?

she's an everyday American mom who doesn't have time for all that high-falutin' thinking and being an expert on things and knowing what you're talking about.

all you need are guts, not brains.

so why worry about thinking?

Oh, you need both.

It took Patton and Einstein to get us out of WWII.

She's a working mother with a successful carreer and also with conservative views. I can well understand how this combination does not find favour with the extreme left.

Although I think extreme liberals tend to in general hate married women with kids. They'd prefer it the kids had been aborted, or if the mother had divorced.

Palin has shown a mirror to the rotten heart of extreme liberalism, and they don't like what they see, so they react accordingly.

Misogyny and elitism in the one post.

Well done, you.

Get back to me when you can address the point of why an alleged stupid dumb redneck can be elected to high political office and come within a hairsbreadth of being VP.

Guess what? I am one of the few dinosaurs who has stayed home and raised my kids. I think what she did to her teenage daughter by thrusting her into the spotlight is terrible. Where was her "family first" attitude with that move?

The only thing Sarah Palin has shown that is "extreme" is stupidity.

if you could point out the misogyny, that would be great. sounds HUGELY ironic to me coming from someone who doesn't think anything is homophobic.

however, to answer your question, this "stupid dumb redneck" as you put it came within a hairsbreadth of being VP because of the absolute and total bankruptcy of John McCain.

Alaska also has 650,000 people. that's about how many people live in Washington DC. this is a town that continually re-elected Marion Barry (though this might be too US-specific, i apologize).

i really don't have the time to go into the absolute lack of any evidence of any of Palin's thinking on any issues of national importance prior to August of 2008, nor do i have the time to rehash her demonstrated ignorance of said issues and total lack of expertise when it comes to governance, especially now that she's not even a one-term governor.

the record shows that she's a farce. i understand that you're trying to play the misogyny card in the way that you think i might play the homophobia card, but i'm happy to defend my position and it has nothing to do with gender, excepting the fact that the reason she was selected was precisely to jazz up the GOP ticket, woo disenchanted Hillary voters, and to show off her evidently "pro-life lifestyle."

That must be it.

All those other moderates who were turned off by her - what rotten thing about them does it expose? Enlighten us.

Well we elected a stupid redneck twice, so that's not really a feather in cap. I think Gov Palin was in way over her head, but then again so was he.

It's laughable to even respond and I don't call myself an extreme liberal, but I think it's great that she has kids and is a working mother. She has a beautiful family. I just haven't seen anything from her as far as when she was the VP candidate that makes me think she's a good candidate. I am going by what comes out of her mouth-not her looks, her family, her career, her clothes, ..whatever.

Maybe John McCain misunderestimated women. Where's all the outrage about that?

You truly do live in a delusional world. Wow... Is this a requirement now? I mean seriously, there are intelligent conservative thinkers out there, right? Please?

Palin's not a real 'redneck' and no one in here has ever called her one until financeguy just did. For what that's worth.

If you are the governor of the State of Alaska, are impersonated by Tina Fey, fail to become the Vice President, and then quit your job ..... you might be a redneck.

/half-assed and generally lame attempt at outdated pop culture reference

Sarah Palin makes a mockery out of extreme liberals and is a slap in the face to all macho men and self-declared alpha males who can't bear the thought of a woman in the white house.

Do what you gotta do, Mrs. Palin. Don't let jealousy, sexism and the bastards grind you down.
