New name: Sarah the Endorcer". As long as it doesn't turn into Sarah the President. If that happens, hello Canada!
I predicted CNN will make table about Palin endorsements CNN grow up
Sarah Palin, a natural shoe-in for President... Of the Wasilla, Alaska chapter of Deluded Fruitcakes Anonymous!
And thanks of course, to CNN – where political commentary seems to have been handed off to the sports writers. Any word on how she'll do in the Finals?
So she thinks she's a god now? Remember what happened to Nebuchardnezzar when he thought the same? One can only hope. She's already an animal.
Here she comes again, YOUR LITTLE DARLING!
Fascism has come to America wrapped in the U.S. flag and carrying a cross...
What the Fascists fear most of all is intelligence.
Stay stupid America, they love you that way.
Is her husband still telling her what to think and do or is it someone new now?
So, in other words, she's within one standard deviation of what you'd expect if she was choosing her endorsements by flipping a penny.
Why is this news?
Please go away, Sarah.
Bless her hot little heart, she will be the
prettiest President in the world in 2012 !!!!!
Who cares? Mitt Romney has a strong endorsement record. So does Mike Huckabee. And, Barack Obama for that matter. Where are the stories on their win/loss tallies? Why is the media so obsessed with this moron? Get over it.
Who cares about palin.........she is trash just like a dog she is in everybody trash before she get HOME......or where the money is ........
CNN why is this important? What has this woman done to make our Nation a better place? What has she contributed?
People voting for the likes of Brewer, Miller, Angle, Paul with the help of Palin get what they deserve if these people get voting in. Cutting of benefits, Social Security, Medicare, disability bnfts, unemployment bnfts, education etc. etc. and listin to Glen Beck and the FOX nonews etc. etc. Becareful what you wish for. It has only been 17 months for this president to turn things around from the eight years that brought us to this point.
" Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.

Give us a break from this woman, CNN! You act like she just won something; she wasn't running for anything, so she didn't win anything. Your fixation with her is remarkable indeed!
Does Palin have a win-loss tally? And if so, why?
Wanna know why Democrats are losing? Just read the responses from the liberals. Hateful, demeaning and disgusting betraying their racism, bigotry and elitism. These types of comments can only come from drug problems or demented people and that is what constitutes the liberals.
Regardless of her win vs. loss record, she's raised the public profile of unknown candidates to either win by large margins or come very very close to winning. RHINO'S are an endangered species in the Republican Party, just like conservative and moderate Democrats to the Democratic Party. Blue Dog Democrats are running to the hills,away from Obama, Pelosi, and Reid. It'll be the only way they have a snowball's chance in hell to win in November. How does that make you libs feel about your own candidates? Let them try running on Obamacare, oh the majority of the public hates it. Let them try running on the Financial Reform Bill, oh they forgot to include Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Let them run on the Auto Bailouts; well if your UAW union worker, you'll love that. How about the Stimulus $825B,
no such thing as a "job saved or created." BTW, this "no job created" stimulus cost more than the whole Iraq War. You libs sure blew it; thought we'd buy your European socialism ideals, when Europe is moving away from it. Talk about dumb blind morons.
If Palin is so great at endorsing candidates and having them win, how come all of then didn't win? The three candidates just prior to Miller who were endorsed by Palin all lost their nominations. I think all you dreamers tend to give her too much credit. And you can forget bout her ever occupying the Oval Office. Sixty percent of the American people agree she isn't qualified to ever be President.
Oh yeah – put her in the international peace talks
". . . . . . you're a spinless limp noodle, (insert whichever head of state here) . . . . . . "
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Anyone that had Saran Palin endorsements are nothing but nut cases and racist. Nobody sure vote for these people at all.
Only 26% of registered voters voted so is not such a big deal.
Am sure this unqualified radical will lose in an election that counts.
We all have to get the Democrats fired up.
Hey bloggers, wouldn't it be great if just for a day or two CNN would not push their love affair with Palin down our throats??
Let's be honest here, most of them would have won more easily if she hadn't endorsed them and most of the ones she endorsed that lost would have won if she hadn't endorsed them.
What does Palin know about the people she has endorsed? What has she learned about these races?
