yeah, I posted it earlier



I think it is a net gain for Palin.

the fact that the spokesperson for the leader of the free world is so worried about her he has to take a pot shot at her

also, and many of you won't get this, but the piling on will rub many people the wrong way

I remember saying this when there were "free for alls" on Hillary in the 1990s, most people thought she was down and out.

I wouldn't say that Barack Obama is worried about Sarah Palin, as much as he's worried about the frightening number of people who still think she's a worthy politician. And not even for the purposes of getting elected, just for the sanity of this country.

That's certainly how I feel. I KNOW that Sarah Palin can never be elected president. That doesn't make me any more comfortable with the fact that there still exist a good number of people who would vote for her.

She just epitomizes everything I hate about America: stupidity and dishonesty.

The difference between Hillary and Sarah, and the reason why Hillary came back: Hillary isn't a fucking moron.

if the obama camp is trying to make the gop choose her to run, it's genius. look at her track record so far. she's already made the most electable republican in a long time (moreso than bush, who actually won) a complete laughing stock.

more importantly, Hillary is interested in governing. Palin couldn't even make it through a single term as governor of AK.

Palin wants the celebrity, none of the hard work.

privately, she scares the life out of the GOP power players. they feel the same way about her that they did about post-Katrina Bush.

I started to write that I do not think Hillary and Palin have the same abilities

but then I thought I would leave it out, to see how long it would take for someone else to respond to the obvious

and we do have morons getting elected over much more competent opponents

George W. Bush is more intelligent than Sarah Palin.

I think it's pretty presumptuous of you to say that Gibbs did that because he's "so worried about her."

That's right. We should all just keep quiet when someone angling to possibly become the leader of the free world displays traits that compelling display why she's unfit for the job.

I understand what you're saying, because in this political climate it's very easy to turn any justified negative reaction into a victimhood complex, but sometimes you've got to call a spade a spade.

The jibe drew groans from reporters present.

I saw this on C Span

you could hear the groans from a press corp that has been pretty friendly to the Obama Administration

White House mocks crib-note Palin

A White House aide has appeared at a briefing with the words "hope" and "change" written on his hand in a jibe at Republican Sarah Palin.

Mrs Palin, the former vice-presidential candidate, had been shown reading crib notes from her hand at a question and answers session on Saturday.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs also appeared to have his shopping list written on his palm.

"Hope" and "Change" were the key themes of President Obama's election campaign.

Eggs, milk, bread

Mr Gibbs was speaking at the White House shortly after the president had been stressing the need for a bipartisan approach to politics.

Showing his left palm, Mr Gibbs said: "I wrote a few things down."

The list read in vertical order - eggs, milk, bread [which had been crossed out].

"And then I wrote down 'hope and change', just in case I forgot," he said.

The jibe drew groans from reporters present.

I'd have preferred if he was more subtle about it, but there's no subtlety in politics unless you're Fox News trying to infer that Obama is anti-America.
