Skipping to the end:
Consider, if you will, what happens to a person who suggests that Sarah Palin is anything other than saintly. Right off the bat, they are accused of disliking America or Alaska or conservatives or mothers or the working class or even women in general and then they are informed that their hatred is showing. Next, their motives are questioned and their supposedly secret agenda is exposed for the world to see, for no right-thinking person could dislike Palin on the merits, natch. I hope you enjoy your elite cocktail parties, the apologists will say, and then they will huffily tell you that they hope signaling that you are one of them was worth it. And finally as is the case when one expresses disapproval of other cult figures, such as President Obama, Ron Paul, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and Paul Krugman it is presumed that all animadversion must be motivated by envy or by snobbery or by secret admiration, and that it can therefore be safely ignored. What have you done, they will ask, that compares to my paragon of virtue? All told, its really quite pathetic.
Having been mercilessly and unjustly pilloried by the media throughout the 2008 campaign, Sarah Palin had a clear choice in its aftermath: She could sober up and prove the buggers wrong, or she could collapse into ignominious pasquinade. Sadly, she chose the latter. The rest of us should choose to move on.

I don’t know where those great pics of cats with human expressions come from-——but I get a big kick out of them.
Oh really? Please, elaborate.
Because the stuff Sarah gets pilloried for is stuff that doesn't matter to any thinking individual, or shouldn't, IMHO. It's stuff that doesn't amount to a hill of beans except in the minds of those few media who think that it does, and think that repeating it endlessly will convince additional low-information minds.
Bottom line is, if Sarah decides to run, she's an INSTANT frontrunner, and will remain so until such time as the nomination is actually decided.
“Pound sand?” A great argument for Palin’s electability. I too would like to see her win. And, I would like to win Powerball too. Both will never happen.
Her image problems are immense, and self inflicted. Nor, could she withstand MSM round the clock pounding.
I think it's the Captions =^.^=
There’s been a lot of anti-Palin articles written after her speech. Ask yourself why that is?
Palin is THE single politican that is a threat to the ruling class in D.C.
I like Palin, but her time has passed. To me, it was during the ‘12 campaign season when she was said to be considering getting in, then Perry announced and her moment moment was gone. Just my opinion.
“Shes living in their heads rent-free 24/7.”
Repeating this over and over doesn’t change reality. Her speech this weekend was horrible. It looked like she hadn’t given it much thought and believed that all she had to do was show up and she would be fawned over. If she wants to be a contender (and I don’t think she does), she owes it to us to contend.
Plus Byron York hates Republican women candidates. Who can forget his questioning of Michele Bachmann during the Republican primaries. With his long greasy hair and creepy lower lip I’d say there’s a reason he don’t like girls...
Yeah. But a few of them have come to the realization that she's nothing more than a opportunistic huckster.
Oh yeah,the captions are necessary but the cats are terrific.
I’ve always supported SP, but watching that display was down right painful. I was embarrassed for her and found myself wishing she’d just stop.
Haven’t you heard? Palin Concern is all the rage these days. Meanwhile, Romney fails to show in Iowa and Jeb is asking for illegals to pretty please, self deport.
I think she has seriously mis-managed a golden opportunity.
He had the following to say about her detractors: "Those on the left who savaged Palin were animals. Those on the right who did not defend her were eunuchs. Those on the right that took part in her destruction were animals with no souls."
So which category he described fits you best
I agree that she is a threat and a burr in the liberal’s saddle. But, she is simply unelectable.
Since you are likely a Ron/Rand Pauler, don’t vote for her, just don’t sell yourself as unbiased. She is the only one willing to fight the media.
So far Rand Paul has been the worst candidate of the bunch.
Pray America is waking
Palin is one of a very short list of politicians I am willing to tune in to hear.
I suppose that makes me a member of the fan club.
That occurred to me the other day... I recorded the Iowa speeches. The only ones I listened to were Palin, Walker, Gingrich, and Cruz. The others I fast-forwarded through.
There is only a very short list of politicians I would consider voting for in the 2016 general election. As a Republican, I am only barely still inside the party. After the Boehner-McConnell episodes, I am pretty well burned out on these guys. A Romney or Jeb nomination would finish it for me, I think.
They needn’t bother running anyone besides Cruz. Cruz-Lee, Cruz-Palin, Cruz-Walker, Cruz-you-fill-in-the-blank.
Those on the right who took part in her destruction were mostly Romniacs. So, yes, he was right.
