Hold on as I look at my hand...

Isn't that the story of conservatives in general right now? Platitudes of 'NO'...

NO plans.

i'd love to know what she has beyond slogans.
1. get government out of the way of free enterprise
2. tort reform and competition
3. like Reagan said 'we win, they lose'.
4. drill baby, drill, with some new energy programs where they make sense


One thing the 2008 election taught us all.

Is a platform with snappy answers can suffice with independents and the disaffected enough to win an election.

Probably go like this:

1. Not good
2. Death Panels
3. Need to bring terrorist to justice
4. Need More

I honestly can't think of one proposed plan or idea out of her head. She has that classic mentality "Say what you see, not what you think". Sky is blue, terrorism bad, lower taxes good, socialism not good.

I still see her running for President, but she's going to need a lot of coaching, and it'll be interesting to see if her advisors still shelter her from interviews and press conferences.

It barely got her by as the VP candidate, but i just can't see it working through the primaries.

i really don't have much to add, other than that i saw Palin's speech the other day, and i think she comes across as very smart.

that will resonate with a lot voters

I think she can be a better candidate than W was at this stage, to dismiss her because she does not measure up, could be the same mistake many of us made when we dismissed W in 1999.

I think you're a bit deluded here.

Corporate Republicans, the guys out on Wall St who run the show (sorry Teabaggers and pentecostal pro-lifers) cannot stand this woman and will never allow her to be a candidate in the GOP. Heaven knows I'm no conservative - social, fiscal or otherwise - but heaven also knows that I know plenty of the fiscal variety, upper crust conservatives with $ and power and there is not a chance in hell they will come to the aid of this woman. Completely different situation than W, who had the corporatists behind him.

You are way, way misreading things.

She can go run as a candidate for the Tea Party of Amurka, which no serious person would vote for, and would only split the right's vote down the middle, making it an election rout for Obama.

Of cour$e, none of thi$ make$ any difference becau$e it'$ plain a$ night and day what Palin i$ actually intere$ted in.

I am very familiar with the Corporate Republicans,
they have money and influence, they may get their pick this time.
That would be Romney. He is pretty well positioned with his upset win in MA. It was his people that ran Scott Brown's (the people's senate seat) campaign.

Or they could be upset by another maverick, with populace support.

Right now, if I had to bet, I'd go with Romney.

Of course, if it had been a Republican and used "gay" in place of "stupid," I think we all know what EVERYONE in the media would be talking about tonight.

But you know, we can't even in the slightest, most non-political, human decency instance can we side with Sarah Palin on something. Even if it's something as simple as calling Rahm out for being a jackass, which should be common knowledge at this point.
Perhaps the person's original comments are based on Palin's constant hypocrisy?

Case in point, making comments about others using teleprompters when she herself uses notecards and writing on her hand. And that is just the latest in a line of dumb and hypocritical things she's done and said.

There is nothing wrong with a teleprompter, note cards... but when she and other Conservative talking heads say it as though it's a bad things for one to use a teleprompters... when those same people are using a teleprompter or notes or note cards... well... hyprocritical of them.

More proof she's a hypocrit?

She taxed oil companys and then paid out money to all citizens of Alaska. (The amount was around $3200.00)

For someone that wants to call others 'socialists' and complain about some trying to 'spread the wealth', she did just that with the oil companys and citizens of Alaska.

Palin is nothing more than a talking point machine, at best. She's no original or good ideas. And all reports from inside the McCain campaign have said she wasn't willing to listen to anyone else. So she's no original ideas and won't listen to anyone else. She's quit every job she's ever had... How does anyone consider her viable in the world of politics?

Same here.

Nevermind that he is going to destroy Palin in the GOP primary, should she elect to run.

No way will the corporatists support her. She's really a total non-sequitur, it's a pity that she's such a fame whore and the media are cheap shills.

i can also see Romney terrifying the tea-baggers. perhaps they revolt and start a third-party?

Romney = Bob Dole

my favorite excuse for the Palin writing-on-hand -- "lots of busy moms have to write notes to themselves on their hands."

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has the words "Eggs, Milk, Bread (crossed out), Hope, and Change" written on his hand as he talks to reporters in the White House briefing room Feb. 9. (AP Photo)


amazing that a shiny object has every little kitty pawing away at it.

Palin is still winning.

it is true that she is best ignored. after all, we all know what the Palin people think that Gibbs was really doing.

HE WAS MAKING FUN OF TRIGG!

I just think all of her detractors are elevating her.

She should be fading away from the national spot light, like Joe Lieberman the losing V P candidate in 2000 or Dan Quayle the 92 loser.

Instead just like the author in the Atlantic article you posted believes,
I see the potential for her to have much more success, than many are predicting.

Palin has fervent believers who want more from her than Lieberman or Quayle ever had. while i wish she would go away, no one will allow her.

she appeals to people's sub-rational instincts. as someone said earlier, all she does is describe problems. sky blue, china sneaky, energy more. she's pure sensation, and i think she believes it in a way that Bush did after 9/11 -- "higher father" -- but that was eventually beaten out of him.

I also like how she replaced budget cuts with tax cuts. Nothing like fiscal conservatism! Tax cuts and increased spending! It'll be like George W. Bush all over again! YEE-HA!
