    Rut-roh! Is Palin making a move for the 2012 campaign? She's speaking at the Ronald Reagan Dinner on September 17th in Iowa. Many political pundits see this as a strategic move for the nomination. But for which party, I wonder - the TEA Party or the republican party? I want to see a moderate republican or even a moderate democrat run!

      Hi habee. I'd like to see a sane person run.
      Even the news in my country consider her to be unbalanced at best.
      You should see some of the footage we have here on the satirical comedy shows! smilesmile

        But she's hawt, so who cares.  Not like the CONGRESS which has all the real power is going to do anything.

        It's so funny to watch everyone bitch about the President, simply because he's one guy and easy to keep track of. 

        The problem is in Congress.  They suck.  They have been sucking for decades.  Our media is corrupt and serves itself, and we the serf class are unwilling to put for the momentus effort we would need to really fix it.  And what's worse, the moronic right is so busy pushing high-emotion, totally polorizing religious agendas, anti-abortion and gay hate that they are driving people to center and even left, which allows the far, far left to take gun rights away, so that we won't be able to overthrow this Idiocracy we've made.

        Perfect storm of stupidity on both sides.

          There should be some way we could require our congressmen to actually represent his or her constituents.  With our modern technology, there is no reason why we can't inform our representatives how the majority of their constituents would like them to vote on a certain bill.  And if they didn't do this, then we simply kill them! 

          I think this might work!  Anyone have a problem with this?

    Ernest, I do not want Palin to run! I'm more of a moderate, and while I'm a Christian, I strongly believe in the separation of Church and State. Also, I'm not nearly as right-winged as a lot of Christians. I believe in tolerance, and Palin doesn't seem the type to me who would be very tolerant of anyone who wasn't like her!

      Yes I get that you are a moderate habee.

      It would be much nicer without the crazed zealots from either party. smile

        That $&it ain't funny, RD - it's scary as hell! There are lots of folks who practically worship this woman and hang on her every word. And now she's got plenty of moula, too. Don't be so quick to dismiss her chances. I don't know if you remember how it was in GA when Jimmah Cahta was running, but a lot of folks voted for him as a joke. Look what happened! I'm not comparing Palin to Carter, just saying...stranger things have happened!

          It's very sad that there are a few mentally lazy people out there that worships this dingy bitch. When McCain chose her to be his running mate, obvioulsy he didn't take his campaign very seriously. You had a Maverik and a MILF running for the top position in the country, how hilarious!!

    What does Rut-Rah mean, Habee?

      habeeposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Rut-roh, not rut-rah. Rut-roh - you know, dogspeak for uh-oh. Don't you watch Scooby Doo and the Jetsons?? lol. I have 2 Great Danes, so I guess it comes with the territory.

        (I was wondering what "rut-rah" is.  Then again, I was wondering what "rut-roh" is too.   smile  )  It's been a long time since I've since The Jetsons (and somehow I missed Scooby Doo completey.   smile  )   (Now I know if I see "rut"-anything it's dogs-speak.   smile  )

        (Let's talk about cartoon dogs instead of Sarah Palin.   It would be more interesting.   smile  )

    Never mind. I figured it out. It's Rut-ROH -- Uh Oh as voiced by Astro the dog on the Jetsons, right?

    Palin intrigues me mainly because she, like Obama is unexperienced and still relatively new on the scene, However, unlike President Obama, Palin doesnt have the poise that many people envision a president to have.

    I think she is too polarizing to be a serious contender but should run for kicks.

    Romney is the only republican candidate that I would vote over Obama.

      I think Romney is very intelligent. I need to learn more about him.

    There is also the problem of making comparisons between a top student who got his law degree from Harvard Law School (where he became the Harvard Law Review's first African American president).......... and a bone ignorant screaming fundamental religionist who talks in tongues! Geeeeeeeeeeez!Is this guy gonna run too? smile

      At least Obama has ideas.... even if they are not working

        Obama has not got much of a chance to do much with a congress that has been crud for donkeys years as Shadesbreath
        stated so well above.

        The American people should put the broom to lobbyists and a start sweeping the recipients of favours out of the house.

          Randy and I have been saying that for years (about lobbyists). WHY do we put up with that??

            The same reason Australians have screwed up our politics right now. Intellectual laziness and a lack of scrutiny I guess! lol

      Doesn't it make you feel ashamed for those people who send this charlatan so much of their hard earned money?  The mind control these types of religious con artists have over those people is horrible fascinating to a point.  After that it gets scary!

      You would love Melbourne habee. smile A beautiful clean city on two bays and close to the open sea with mountains and snowfields only 2 hours from the city. Melbourne is surrounded by foothills 30 minutes away. Plenty of Americans already live here and love it.
      At 4 Million souls it is getting very big though.

    She's definitely making a move.
    God willing she'll self-destruct at the primary stage.
    The vision of palin as POTUS makes me ill.
    If Beck is Jim Baker incarnate,Palin isTammy Faye...

    Funny, I liked Palin at first. Then I did my research. UGH!!

    Maybe I just wanted to like her because I liked and respected McCain. I liked Hillary, too. And I used to hate Hillary! But then I researched her and found that I liked her. I will usually admit when I've made a mistake!
