The former Alaska governor represents thwarted aspirations and brooding resentment. But she backs policies which would increase them.
In the film, The American President, the president's speechwriter Lewis Rothschild (played by Michael J Fox) appeals to the commander-in-chief to take a firm, clear stand against the Right. "People want leadership, Mr President, and in the absence of genuine leadership, they'll listen to anyone who steps up to the microphone." he says. "They want leadership. They're so thirsty for it they'll crawl through the desert toward a mirage, and when they discover there's no water, they'll drink the sand."
The president (played by Michael Douglas) retorts that the American electorate's problem is not a lack of leadership but an undiscerning palate.
"We've had presidents who were beloved, who couldn't find a coherent sentence with two hands and a flashlight," he says. "People don't drink the sand because they're thirsty. They drink the sand because they don't know the difference."
As the faithful wait in line in small towns across the country (some for more than a day) to see Sarah Palin on her book tour, the question of whether the US is deprived of a competent political class or gets the leadership it both deserves and truly desires seems as pertinent as ever.(continued)

I am sure a Black British Leftists has the best advice at mind for US Conserivatives.
Demoncrats already own the House and the Senate and the White House, what do we have to lose?
The Obamists are in the sand-selling business, and they don’t want any competition from radicals with Perrier.
God, it just kills people that Sarah is easily able to draw crowds. It’s the same exact attitude that they have about the tea partiers: hicks, idiots, racists, misguided shills etc.
2010 will be very interesting. We shall see.
“In 2004, white Americans were the only racial group for whom the poverty rate actually rose. The fact that it was lower than every other group is of little comfort. Demographically, they are set to become a minority by 2042.”
The author is a black-faced racist. F- what he says.
So because of scenes in a stupid movie about a fictional president who was very very liberal, we’re supposed to be dismissive of Sarah Palin? Michael Douglas as president is the benchmark?
Is this guy for real???????
Once you give a quarter to marxists they will eat you alive. We are being played for fools by the leftist cabal that runs washington. They will pass this, they have too much invested and they know that even if they lose in 2010 the reapportionment after the 2012 census will give them permanent power once they discover millions on uncounted people all in blue states. That will also give them the electoral college permanently as well. Elections will be a mere formality because they will win every single one from now until doomsday...
The “author” is obviously a big fan of fatty foods and lousy political fiction.
>>> Demoncrats already own the House and the Senate and the White House, what do we have to lose? <<<<
OUR LIVES !!!
OUR FREEDOM !!!
That is what we have left to lose.
We have had enough of a speech reading empty suit. Give us some common sense that can see value in American values.
“Consensus” and “Leadership” are mutually exclusive ideals.
That and someone email this tool and remind him:
“It’s a MOVIE you dolt”
I'll stick with Sarah Palin and the britts can have obama. Oh please britts please pretty please with sugar on top take obama over there! You can have him for free!
Maybe some of us could scrape together some money to pay the britt to take him off our hands. But it wouldn't be much because he's broken our piggy banks and stole just about all our money!
All your seeds are belong to us. Zig, for great justice!
Hey Brits, how’s that socialized medicine working out for ya
Well it’s obvious isn’t it?
All these people, tens of thousands of them, are too stupid to know what they are doing and too stupid to think for themselves.
That’s the take-away message liberals want everyone to know.
Yes, we know, without a teleprompter Obama would be toast.
We also don't need a President who bows to everyone in the world as if the United States is inferior! Get off you knees Obama. These countries don't respect you they laugh at you!
I don't need a lecture from followers of OBAMAMANIA and I'm sure this jerk didn't support Obama just because he is black either. /s
As always, when the Left can’t provide the facts, they dredge up some fiction they saw in a Hollywood movie and present it as if it really did or will happen.
