    Sarah should embark on a nationwide fundraising tour to raise money for conservative candidates.

    I would think something on the order of cost-plus-10% would be fair. What she lacks in political polish (a plus in my estimation) she makes up for with her ability to connect with real human beings.

      “…she makes up for with her ability to connect with real human beings. ”

      What an absolutely novel and refreshing concept…a politician actually making a connection with the people!

      Therein lies her true strength. It’s such a throwback to the founding fathers that it’s a concept that the ordinary politician can’t conceive how it just might work.

      My new hobby is watching the politicos try to figure her out.
      Its like the call to salvation…it’s an idea so simple its hidden from the so called “wise”.

    At one point in her speech she said “we need a Commander in Chief – not a professor of law standing at the lectern”.

    To be fair to Barry, I believe he was actually a senior lecturer, not a professor. In six short years he has gone from lecturing a class to lecturing an entire nation. His true profession is running his mouth.

      Well said.

      You know, his handlers were thrilled with his performance when the Repubicrats were lured into the spider’s web a couple of weeks ago.

      Well, when the other guy gets to ask a question, and then the spider gets to talk for 10 minutes, and the other guy gets no chance to respond, no matter point out the lies, that’s hardly a “disucssion” is it?

      Even so the Rebuicrats were stupid to fall for it.

    • BigOil says:

      Yeah Pro…it was stunning that the Republicans were dumb enough to allow Barry into their retreat for a televised Q&A. After a year of Barry “transforming” our society, many Republicans still do not grasp the gravity of the situation. To them, it is just a difference of opinion, not a pitched battle to save what’s left of our free republic. Palin seems to understand what is at stake.

      When your enemy is drowning – you don’t throw him a life preserver – you toss him a brick.

    In 2012 polished politicians had better be running for cover. Like Ronald Reagan used to say, “You ain’t seen nothing yet”. The country is going to be such a mess that only REAL Americans will be able to straighten it out.

    It must be me, but despite the wonderful content of Sarah’s speech, her delivery really seemed off. Her timing was awkward and often she seemed uncomfortable. Anyone else sense that? StillI, I will take substance over delivery any day–we have had plenty of style over substance, plenty of EMPTY Obama rhetoric!

    • jobeth says:

      I’m firmly in her camp, but noticed it as well. I also seem to remember her putting Alaska in a place that should have read America. Not sure but I believe…

      She seemed to realize her mistake and sort of got distracted and drifted a bit but didn’t correct herself.

      But I agree. I told my husband that she was going to have to stop focusing on the cutesy retorts and focus on the better ideas I know she has.

      Her interview with Chis Wallace seemed much more the Sarah we know. More focused and more articulate.

      A light peppering of cute quips is appealing…but too many only diminishes her credibility.

      She is doing great though in my mind. Think of the giant step from where she was to where she is now! Awesome.

    • ptat says:

      Thanks, Jobeth–as they say–“ditto”. I am also one of the very few who thought the Who were fantastic during the half time show!

    • jobeth says:

      ” I am also one of the very few who thought the Who were fantastic during the half time show!”

      Not sure how that fits in here…but…Yeah…we enjoyed it as well! lol. The light show alone was worth the watch…but my husband was incredulous that they were still at it!

      Watching them only reminded us of our own age! lol

    I watched an item on the Convention and Palin’s speech on Channel 4, the UK’s most left-leaning of all the UK’s left-leaning TV channels. After lingering shots of Palin’s shoes, legs, ass and hair, they included about three seconds of the actual speech before finding some crank dressed up as (I guess) a Minuteman or suchlike, to talk to and who was as bumbling and inarticulate as anyone who isn’t used to appearing on TV usually is, thus demonstrating that anyone who differs with President Barry must be nuts, or at least psychologically challenged.

    Keep thinking like that, Libs. Your smug certainty of your own superiority will help us beat you. As for Sarah, well she seems like a nice person, I love it that libs feel so threatened by her but I’m not sure yet about President Palin. For a start, I want a president who doesn’t find being asked what books and newspaper he or she reads to be a tough question. But if she can study up, do some reading and some travelling and develop a bigger view, then, hey, what’s not to like?

    I still wish Condi had run last year though.

    • jobeth says:

      “I want a president who doesn’t find being asked what books and newspaper he or she reads to be a tough question.”

      She explained this in her book, saying this question came after a series of annoying “gotcha” type of questions that never made the cut for TV.

      She said she was deeply irritated at Katie C for asking this type of silly question.

      I accept her explanation. I’ve had interactions with people that have gotten under my skin with their stupid or idiotic questions or statements. So much so my jaw drops and I just want to cut loose with a few rude statements. This is what she said she was feeling at that moment. And with the cutting, all the rest of the baiting questions that came before never made it for the public to see what she was dealing with.

      Sarah says though she had no right to expect anything else and that she should have been more savy and articulate with her answer. She attributes it to her inexperience with the ways of the ‘gotcha’ press.

      Having experienced similar feelings…I give her a pass on it.

      However, I do believe, as much as I like her, we need all to take a wait and see position. It’s a very long time till the presidential elections and anything can happen, but I would be surprised if she did NOT become more knowledgeable and more poised as a politician.

    • Right of the People says:

      Let the libs think what they want, it will lull them into a false sense of security. When they get tossed out on their arses starting this fall it will shock them even more. The more they dismiss the tea parties as cranks and bumbling bozos clinging to their guns and religion the bigger the fall is going to be.

    • proreason says:

      “I want a president who doesn’t find being asked what books and newspaper he or she reads to be a tough question.”

      Intilligence, and feigned intellligence, have been dropped from my list as criteria for political office.

      For one thing, intelligence is way to easy to fake, or undermine, porticulary with the help of a complint media.. For another, intelligence doesn’t seem to matter. Jimmy Carter is probably the president with the highest IQ (he was a nuclear scientist). What a disaster he was. And lastly, no matter how smart the policies sound during the campaign, life will intervene, and what will be required will be something totally different. The white papers and talking points of the campaign go in the ash can the first day in office.

      I’m going with people who at least profess the right principles.

      And the right principles aren’t difficult to locate. They are the ones that have made this country the greatest in history. If you get confused about them, you can check the Constitution.

    • jobeth says:

      Pro, those are good points. Give me someone who has right principles and character (Ronald Reagan) and with the ability to learn on their feet and be able to think on the run over some ivory tower egghead any day.

      Practical intelligence, and character are much more important for our survival. RR proved that. Smart to be sure…but you have to be able to implement it. We have all been to school with people who aced their tests but couldn’t pass the practical sims. (O’Balmy)

    Poll’s indicate it, talk show audiences, blogs, and elections alike all support this one fact: Titanic has hit the iceberg. Abandon ship. Abandon ship.

    The road forward is paved with gold for he or she that humbly wants to serve simple American values and logical, fiscal-minded solutions. A new media network is crushing the old elite. It’s a perfect storm, a new revolution, America’s third great awakening, and it can’t be stopped unless its enemies literally go to war with it.

    That reinforces the danger of the time we’re in, because as we’ve clearly seen there’s unease worldwide with the ruling elite. God, just see this country to safety in time for the true leaders to take the reins.

  7. DGC says:

    Another day, another politician flapping their gums. They are ALL useless.
    Once again, before an election, the cry is heard: “Just wait till my guy/gal gets in there, they’ll CHANGE things!”
