Sarah Palin is far brigher and more competent than this writer. Sarah for POTUS 2012!
Fairly or unfairly she has been Quayled while Jindal is stepping up to the plate.
Whether Jindal decides to give it a go this time around is a question, but I think the advantage for the next conservative leader is clearly to Jindal right now. He has been more impressive than Sanford also...thus far.
Still way early though.
This is a general interest list. We cover everything from the sublime to the ridiculous.
If you want on or off this ping list, please FReepmail me.
Beware of ANYONE who claims to be conservative ...yet dislikes palin...
They are most likely a MODERATE Like Powell.
Media will have Palin for lunch. Not her fault. Look at the job they did on her family. Enough that it will give a lot of idiots second thoughts about her.
Do we have to rip this person's "evidence" to shreds once again? I mean, this is getting very tedious.
Yeah. Palin is arrogant. Sure.
Despite what this writer says, I don't believe she has ever liked Palin.
They said these things about Reagan also... Palin IS GOING TO BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT.
It is not only the democRATs that Republicans have a problem with, it is the 5th column rats in the party itself.
The author is dishonest.
How’s her confidence in Obama and Congress doing?
It is only the losers that can’t take a bit of criticism now and again. Sarah Palin, imo, is a winner.
So like any other winner in society today she will undoubtedly take this article, and others like it, and use it to make her an even stronger candidate come campaign season.
And who is this? Never heard of her but she sounds stupid. How exactly was Governor Palin supposed to “stop” her EIGHTEEN-year-old daughter from giving that interview? This same person would have complained about Sarah being a tyrant if she had tried!
"Mitt Romney has been the most consistently excellent debater overall in the two meetings of the Republican candidates.
He is personable, clearly well informed, incredibly well-funded, and surrounded by a crack staff.
All that, taken together, goes far to explain why his numbers in Iowa -- and elsewhere -- are looking better and better."
"Romney supporter turned Obama man Douglas Kmiec indulged in quite a litany of name-calling,
finger pointing and demagoguery against the GOP that would have been amazing from the same man only one year ago."
Similar to Romney's other scortched earth tactics:
"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Romney) lost Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."

Bristol is 18 and legally able to offer her own interviews which is what Greta and Bristol stated in the interview.
What should have Gov. Palin stated on national TV about her daughter?!! The media has been out there slamming this girl from day 1.
As a mother, Gov. Palin should defend her daughter. If Gov. Palin wants to call Bristol amazing for stepping up and doing the right thing by choosing to have her baby rather than aborting, holding up against the media onslaught and now trying to complete school while raising a baby, then so be it. I personally would agree with her.
How many people would have withstood what that then 17-year-old went through in the international spotlight?
The author of that article needs to get off of her case.
That said, the MSM is accomplishing their 'destroy' Sarah campaign quite effectively if even freepers are believing their spew. There seems to be quite a few on FR who:
1. can't vote for her because she can't control her family
2. can't vote for the mother of a teen mother
3. can't vote for her because the MSM has already damaged her beyond repair
4. can't vote for her because she should be a full time mom, not a politician
5. can't vote for her because she's the reason McCain lost
And I'm sure there are more. Now, look at all those feeble arguments. What do they have in common? I'll tell you what... they're all excuses a liberal posing as a conservative would use. Think about it... what better way for liberal trolls to engrain themselves in a conservative forum than to 'blend in on every topic EXCEPT Sarah Palin' only to be bolsters by other trolls 'who feel the same way'. They tried it at Team Sarah. And it looks like they're already here.
Yeah right. Reagan had the same problem. Most people from California if I remember were agast that we would vote for Reagan as he was unpopular in California for raising taxes.
