sounds like youre boasting rather than complaining.
HOLD it a second...
(talking to my printer)- Where do we get these people..
I’m back.... You’re POINT!?.. you must have a point..
Google “The Daily Currant.”
The Palin article is satire.
There are a ton of factors, many out of the control of the individual, that influence one’s pedigree. Growing up in Alaska with the family background Palin had didn't put her on the fast-track to the standard pedigree that many families in the Northeast push their children to obtain. That said, she clearly is not stupid.
I agree with you that her speaking style makes her an avid target of the media elites, just like Bush - who also clearly isn't stupid. I would remind us all of James Stockdale, Perot's running mate, who did horribly on the political stage. He graduated from Annapolis with very good academic credentials, and had an additional degree from Stanford, but got chewed up because he wasn't accustomed to public speaking in the political context.
My point is not to convince you that Palin is a great candidate, or the smartest, but to make the case that we should be a bit more careful how we define people's intelligence. IMHO we would be much, much better off as a nation if we banned all graduates of the Ivies from running for the Presidency or for Congress for the next decade. They've been overrepresented in political office for quite awhile now, and have clearly not done a stellar job.
Coulter attacked Gov. Palin
for Romney-the-Tyrant and Obama-the-Tyrant.
It is her way.
She made the better choice. Made a lot of money, and didn’t have to go through the media destruction machine.
Yes, she played the tease. But very few really expected her to run outside of FR. She never took it that seriously.
Puhleze. IT was ROMNEY and his evil supporters
like Rove who LOST the election by failing to even
show up except for 1 debate.
ROMNEY WAS A SECRET OBAMA SUPPORTER.
The GOP can never be trusted again. EVER.
Lots of women feel the same, and you observe the same typical results as Coulter exhibited.
You should have known by now that many Freepers are one-way thing when it comes to conservatism. My way or you can go to hell. No difference between those who they may agree with 99% of the time and those with 5% of the time.
and the Christie lard sandwich...
Careful you are starting to sound like Coulter...
HA! Good one.
The GOP should keep him around, just as a living mascot.
Why? Whose shoes does she have on?
Republican primary elections. What's that...something from the past?
Republicans conservatives ever want to win anything, they need to end "open primaries" in all states that have them.
Who is out there that the RATs wouldn't do the same exact thing to, and how would you combat it?
If there isn't real political baggage, the RATs just make it up.
I agree with you, but; the media will eat those types up. I did vote for Palin. I will never vote Dem/commie.
There isn’t a true conservative that the Left wouldn’t go all out to demonize and destroy. I agree completely on that.
The extent to which it can be fought and resisted is largely dependent on the candidate. I’m not old enough to remember, but I’ve read and I’ve been told that the Left did their best to demonize Reagan, but once the American people got a true, unfiltered look at him then the Left’s attacks on him were revealed as baseless.
I wonder if Palin is capable of the same. And I wonder if the relentless attacks on her have put her in too big a hole with too large a segment of the electorate. I know a lot of people get very defensive of Palin, and I’ll admit that I’m not a big fan, at least not of her running for President. But I would vote for her against any conceivable Democrat candidate. I have my doubts that others would though, at least enough of them.
Of course, I voted for McCain/Palin, but would never campaign to put Palin on the top of the ticket. As soon as she is unscripted, her method of speaking goes a bit bizarre and all over the place.
She’s good for generating income for her family, and she can attract conservatives to events, but I don’t think she could ever win a national election, and I doubt she could win a statewide election, now. Way too much water under the bridge. :)
We need to find some new conservatives. Where the heck are they?
we will never see another republican president in our lifetime.
If obamaCare was not enough of a reason to vote Romney.
The traitors who didn’t vote Romney have taken are country over the cliff.
Dream all you want to, in a few years Obama will will look tame. The numbers are not there for the future.
Romney was the one who encouraged Obama to give us a national version of RomneyCare. It was a good reason to vote against Romney.
The GOPe has given us a long string of bad candidates
