"Faux moderates" like Huntsman Jr. need not apply.
>> “Sarah Palin” will either be checked or handwritten on my ballot. I will accept no substitutes.
That’s exactly where I’m at. If a better candidate was to surface, I’d consider changing my mind — but I can’t imagine who that would be (and all things considered it’s NOT Pence, NOT Duncan Hunter, NOT Pawlenty, NOT Huntsman, NOT Newt, NOT Haley Barbour, and DAMN SURE NOT Romney or Huckabee).
I held my nose and voted for that puke McCain, pretty much only because he picked Sarah Palin as his VP.
I’m not doing that again though. If the mainstream media gives us another puke candidate I am NOT pulling the lever for them.
I'm sorry, I just don't see the attraction. Granted, I haven't read her books - but then again, anybody can write a book and "sound tough" in it - and she does make a pretty speech, but I have serious doubts about her, when the rubber meets the road. Seeing her dump her obligations to the people of Alaska by quitting as Guv when people said naughty things about her told me that she's either too thin-skinned or too ambition for higher office to be truly trusted with power.
