I hate the phrase “common sense” as it is used in modern political discourse. Assumes you are right without bothering to prove anything. Palin uses it alot. I cringe when I hear it.

When I hear the phrase I start listening very carefully because usually it is a cover for some kind of demagoguery.

I guess they say it, because if a person has to ask them what they are talking about then you might look like you don’t have any common sense. LOL

Yes, she does which may be the point of the thread.
