The best win Alaska could ever ask for was when they asked Palin to resign from office after all her abuse and fraud charges were proven true and correct. When people wake up to the truth and facts they will finally realize that this is one very abusive person that is out for money and only money.
I'm so sick of these stories. Palin is not running for any office so she has not won anything. I don't see why her elctoral bookie picks are news. What about every other politician that makes an endorsement.? Is CNN claiming that her influence tipped certain outcomes? I haven't seen that analysis yet. What picks has the Paul the World Cup octopus made? Those would be more interesting.
Will you PLEASE let Sis. Sarah go back to Alaska and stay there.

To Willa-PA and anyone else who views this as someone else's problem: those who vote for these unqualified, narrow-minded hate-mongers aren't going to "...get what they deserve..." WE'RE ALL GOING TO SUFFER! Right, Left, or centrist, we all need to be talking to our friends and neighbors about what the candidates actually stand for, what they're being truthful about, and what they're lying about. If you can, send money to campaigns, but for this nation's sake, you have to get out the vote!
I dmean it someone else's problem, I give what I can and get beat up even by some my own family for speaking out.
It is apparent that CNN is one of Palin's biggest boosters. They hang on every word that this woman says. Why should she get so much press coverage when she is just another loser? CNN just doesn't understand that the majority of the viewing public is sick and tired of seeing her in the news every day.
.......Go crawl back under the rock McInsane found you under up there in Alaska......
We don't need or want you or your ilk (ie – Wasiliibillies) down here in the lower 48.
Stare at Russia out your kitchen window – anything – just go back to being irrelevant like you used to be..........
I just listened to a journalist who has been following her the past year or so. He's talked with many people who are close to Sara Palin and they are saying that she has the most nasty temper, even to the point of throwing things when she doesn't get her way. They say that she fights constantly with her husband, using the "F" word prolifically. And he says they haven't slept together in a long time, he doesn't know how she got pregnant. But there was controversy about that as well, people not believing that she really had that downs syndrome baby that it was her daughters. She sounds sort of like a female Hitler. And like she's not mentally stable.
PLEASE!! Make this Bimbo go away! I am so sick and tired of her and her craziness. We have just enough unstable and unscrutible people in this country that it makes her hateful rhetoric dangerous. No one wants her to represent them. (Not that she has the ability to anyhow.) Has she ever served a full term at anything?
The only people I know who actually believe any thing that comes from her mouth are uneducated, racist or just plain ignorant. That pretty much sums up Palin and her cronies.
For those of you who believe in this person, move to Alaska! Oh yea, she quit that too. . . nevermind.
Alaska win boosts Palin win-loss tally? I wasn't aware she was in a competition for anything. Tell me, what did she win or for that matter lose?
Who cares who this freak-show supports? She's a kook!
