    I am not a liberal, and I find Sarah Palin to be immature, ignorant and a quitter now out to just make $$$ off her name and those enamored with her image–not her substance. To imagine she could have been VP of the USA is a nightmare that thanks to God didn't happen.

    To the republicans what they consider the wrong direction is when the democrats want to take away the tax breaks for the rich people. they started this trickle down voodo economics under that b grade actor that had alhimers. we know how that has worked out.

    So sad that people have to talk so bad about someone else.
    She loves America.

    Palin is by far the most divisive person we've seen in years, at a time when we do not need division. She exercises her right to free speech but what is scary is the hatred she spews and the legions of followers who agree with her. She is scripted and none of her stage act is real, the tears at the perfect moment, the hokey terminology, the phony rhetoric about bringing up kids and family life when her children are handed over to nannies while she jet sets around the country. It is all an act, wake up America, she is an actress, and not a very good one at that.

  5. someone else's mother

    She may be the mother of a vet....now....but when her son went into the military wasn't it under a plea agreement to keep from having a criminal history for criminal behavior? How he got there DOES matter, MOTHER! You didn't raise a vet, you raised a thug...Uncle Sam made him a vet. Of your three eldest children...you have three losers....All three have been partiers under you nose...or did they raise themselves while you and Todd were off doing your own thing? What does that say about your Christian beliefs, Sarah? It's all rhetoric....

    I, too, hope she runs for POTUS in '12 – when she debates Pres. Obama, she'll quit half way through the debate. End of story!!!

    We are a nation of 300 million people and this all we can come up with to run the country ? The media thinks it runs the country, the politicians are idealogues with no concept of compromse and common sense and we just blindly follow along...this naton is in horrible trouble and Sarah Palin i not the answer, Obama has divided more than united, the far right radicals only say "no", the far left radicals have not been the answer.......can we return to common sense and intelligent debate ?

    So the phony conservative tax-raising (see ACES tax) social program benefitting (see Alaska Permanent Fund) ex-governor of Alaska is a keynote speaker and representative of the TEA party group. Let's not kid ourselves--this party is not about conservatism or being taxed enough already-as indicative of who they have chosen as their speakers. Rather it is a gathering of the Tribe of European Americans who do not like seeing President Obama holding the highest office in the country.

    A self promoter as bad as Beck and as willing to stoop to demagoguery.

    Howie,
    You say the majority of is behind her. The majority of what? People who think that complex issues can be addressed with bumper sticker rhetoric, hair extensions and winks? Thank goodness that is a group that is in the minority in this country.

    idesign,
    She will never be debating President Obama because she will never run for president or any other office. She is only interested in attention and money. She fears responsibility. That may be her only redeeming quality since she obviously cannot handle it.

    Oh, popcorn is good, but the takedown anyone with a brain could do to this woman is too gruesome for a popcorn movie. She is at the exact degree of stupidity that is dangerous: because her tiny brain is filled with all it can hold, she thinks that is all there is to hold. Unfortunately, her supporters are no better off, judging by what I've seen of their writings. As for calling her speech "powerful", by local usage, it doubtless was: hereabouts, that adjective means uttering a bad stench. Meanwhile, if she has made any of us "liberals" wet our pants, it's from side-splitting laughter, for which lapse the tickled parties apologize: it's not nice to laugh at a crip.

    People just continue praying. Only the One who created these two monsters can stop them. And He will. God may not come when we want Him, but believe me, He is always right on time.
