Is there a name for this type of English misusage?
I think Palin uses too many words to win the election.
Her words always remind me of a student whose assignment is an essay of a certain length who pads the nothingness of their thoughts with extra words. If she turned in an assignment to me the red corrections would look like a crime scene.
Why say she "calls" when she can say she "will call?"
Why say "won't" when she can say "will not be?"
Why say "that lets" when she can say "as to let a?"
Why say "or" when she can say "whether it be?"
Why say "follow their gut" when she can say "do what their gut tells them to do?"
A horrible cloud of bad English usage. It drives me nuts to hear or read her words.
She "studied" journalism for crying out loud.
I am just praying the GOP has a brain fart and lets her run - You couldn't buy tickets to entertainment like that!
I am concerned we really do not have a valid alternative to Obama, at least not yet. A little scary, really. Both Parties, both garbage choices.
x-pat may be a viable answer if this crap keeps crawling out of the woods to declare a candacy
OMG, AnnCee! That crime scene line is FABULOUS!
"If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance,
baffle 'em with bulls$%t!"
That could be Palin's credo.
Sloppy writing (or in her case, speaking) is the result of sloppy thinking.
Don't know how she got this far, but am relieved she is curtailing her presidential ambitions. I bet the GOP is relieved, too.
She is unconventional. That's what I like about her. She follows George Bush, in that she makes up all sorts of words. She doesn't have the snake oil smoothness of Bill and the empty nice words just words of Shiny. Sarah should stick around and keep honing her skills in all parts of government. I have no objection to her earning a lot of money first either because she's going to need that when she gets serious.
Oh, but she's got the venom of Delay.
And she's anti-woman. No tanks.
I made up a word. Ponzification. It means to pompously implement a giant ponzi scheme upon the masses.
Then Obama should know that word very well!
She's folksy and seemingly disconnected from washington. She's more like regular women I know and I like her. However she doesn't always sound presidential and that will hurt her. I do hope she runs and in the debates I get to hear her trash Obama!
Honestly do you know women who talk like Palin?
Democrats hope she runs too. I am an independent and I think both parties have sold out to the banksters.
Look at this:
Orrin Hatch has been in the senate since January 3, 1977
Amazing, isn't it?
Ah you love my English wit. You lot can't seriously be suggesting this one as president can you? Even you!
Sure why not! We tried the inexperienced community organizer socialist black guy with the broad smile why not the proven executive former beauty queen conservative with the folksy accent and friendly wink?
Ah America, the greatest democracy on earth! Isn't there an actor standing for this election or something? Someone who really knows their stuff and deserves their finger on the nuclear button!
You should get some proper politicians in to head up one of the parties; some real b****rds like us!

God help us! I don't know why you even come on here writing about politics, the rest of your country gave up years ago!
That's a great observation and the reason why we are where we are electing socialists into positions of authority! It's also the reason why so many have decided to reengage in the process and why you will continue to see democrats ejected including Obama!
I realize I may be opening a can of worms here but may I ask why you hate socialism so much?
You know that everybody in the US claims that they are a class-less society?
This of course is a myth, the US is as class ridden as the UK was in the 19th century, the only difference, and it's a slight difference, is that the US has but two classes,, the super rich and the rest.
Like the UK in the nineteenth century the lower class actually worships the upper class and blindly accepts that that is the natural order of things, that the upper class rules by right and the lower class is ruled.
This situation can of course only exist with the permission of the ruled class and many not only give permission, they actively collude with the rulers to maintain the status quo, they will go without to ensure that their "betters" always gets their more than fair share.
They will also gang up on anybody who sees the emperors new clothes, accusing them of envy, stupidity and anything else to undermine any revolt and to keep everybody in their place.
They'll even encourage people argue against taxation, as that is money that by rights should be paid to the super rich and not the little men.
Any political system that looks capable of destabilising the class system must also be crushed, don't expect those who will most benefit from this to get their hands dirty though, there are plenty of minions to do that for them.
The Swedish Socialist Nightmare:
I dislike any system of government that relies on oppression to exist.
Except for any form of government that supports the super rich at the expense of all the rest!
Capitalism isn't a form of government. I don't see anything oppressive about it... its freedom in it's purest form... and agreement between 2 parties in an exchange of goods.
Exactly how much freedom do you have to disagree a price?
You want it, you pay the price you're told to.
If you can't come to an agreement then you must not want it. You could go to a competitor... haven't you ever shopped for a car and walked away because the salesman wouldn't come down in price? You know sometimes the seller is at the mercy of the buyer and has to sell at a loss.
I've just been to the supermarket and tried to do it your way. I told them that I wasn't prepared to pay their prices.
They told me that was my choice, their choice was to refuse to sell to me and bar me from the shop!
See my comment about petrol!
The nearest farm to me is about 25 miles away, and when I get there, they'll tell me what to pay.
You do have options... you can refuse to pay and do without if enough people behave as you do they will lower their price. You can also grow your own... or take the drive to the farm and negoiate a bulk price and sell the excess on the roadside. There are always options.
But there is none of the freedom that you claim.
Doing without is not freedom, it's oppression.
I could grow my own but not having a garden I'd have to rent land which puts me right back into the clutches.
I could take the car to the farm, but I lied, I don't have a car therefore I would have to buy a car, with all the loss of freedom that entails.
Believe me, you've been sold the myth of freedom but not the reality.
The reality is that you are not free, you are enslaved to the mighty dollar.
Well I see your point... maximum freedom would mean anarchy no borders no private property no law and order only survival of the fitest... so we invented government to provide law and order and enforce property rights. Within that context we are as free as we can be and still be civilized. Socialism is just an assurance of equal misery without freedom... at least under capitalism you have a chance to rise to the top... if Michael Moore could do it anyone can!
No,socialism is not an assurance of equal misery any more than capitalism is freedom. For every one who has a chance to rise to the top, how many actually make it and how many die on the way to making it?
Fine if you think barbarism and the survival of the fittest is civilised, I don't.
That's not what I said...I said that was maxium freedom! In our civilised society we have order and security that comes at a cost... whatever you need to live you are required to pay your share of that cost...so you'll have to buy land and make enough to eat and pay your taxes... in that context you're able to charge what the market will bear for your goods you can't get any freer.
There were a lot of free people living down by the river in my city. They were free to pan handle the get their cigs and booze. They were free to go get a free lunch every day. They were free to pitch their tents and build their camp fires. They were free to use the river as a toilet and bath.
Then the man told them to move along.
So much for freedom in this country!!
After my abortive visit to the supermarket I stopped to put petrol in my car.
Disgruntled I went to buy a newspaper, they wouldn't accept my offer ether.
Get the picture Lady Love, they'll do deals to sell you things you don't need and where you might have some choice, but essentials, forget it, you pay what you are told to pay or do without.
Socialists? Obama?! Hehe, Americans! He would be considered the most capitalist MP we have in western Europe!
Look at the Swedish Nightmare shown here by good investigative journalism from the Daily Show:
Now wait just a minute, there, superwags!
The rest of the country did NOT give up on actors long ago.
In fact, here in the Golden State (California), we just got rid of our most recent actor cum governor a couple of months ago.
He told the film industry "I'll be back."
And so he went...
I have nothing against entertainers as politicians per se.
I think either Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert could make the transition to public office quite nicely.
Hmmm, let's see, could that be because of term limits he could not run again?
Not to mention he was a Democrat in disguise.
Colbert and Stewart in public office, that is hilarious, they would be subject to the humorous attacks they so gratuitously serve up. Pretty sure they couldn't stand the heat. That would be funny to watch though!
You had a question for me?
Is it my turn to rebut logic,commonsense?
I agree with him!
A Colbert/Stewart ticket would be a hoot.
Palin IS too unconventional to win.
That's why you should vote for Ron Paul in 2012
I could never vote for someone who sponsored the Sancity of Life Act (aka anti-choice) or the Marriage Protection Act (aka homophobic).
He also voted to keep the oil subsidies going. He said it's because it would be a tax increase on oil companies.....
But when business raises prices, what do they call that? When the cost of living becomes untenable with the wages people are making, what is that called?
Tough luck. Deal with it, just don't tax us.
It IS a ponzi scheme, and the richest of the rich always win.
Libertarian or not.
And obviously, he is not a true Libertarian. Freedom is freedom. Not; freedom, but not for you.
she should become president of usa...she is right person after bush to be at the post...atleast we can have 3-4 more wars before usa declares bankruptcy...
There's a very selfish and altruistic reason that I suddenly want Sarah Palin to win the election. Either that or Hillary needs to give it a go again.
Simply put: I made 20 dollars off of a seventy-five cent newspaper on Ebay the day Barack Obama was elected into power.
Come 2012, I plan to have several copies of the the first woman president ready to rake it in for me. And I just can't do that if yet another wrinkly old white man wins the presidency.

The story hit the airways that Palin said that she could beat President Obama in the 2012 Presidential Election. What do you think.. Can she do it?

There are a "few" posts in the forums indicating the posters' firm beliefs that Sarah Palin's book is an effort to (A) make money, (B) settle scores, (C) suck in those of us foolish enough to believe she's a person of substance, (D) blow hot air, and/or a number of other negative...

What's your opinion on Palin?My opinion is pretty simple. She's the dumbest person ever to get to participate in politics. My 14 year old son could run a state better than she is doing.I just saw on ET she's actually using her power to keep her ex son in law from seeing the child he has with...
