As I mentioned on an earlier thread, after losing the GOP nomination in 1976, Reagan became the face of the GOP and was able to travel the country attacking Carter and won the presidency in 1980.

Palin is now in EXACTLY the same position that Reagan was in 32 years ago.

F*** Mitt Romney. He may be a real republican but he is no conservative. We have had all the real republicans we can stand. We need Sarah Palin. She will never campaign for that a**hat.

Assuming this is he:

from his course on Ethics:

The primary goals of this course are to promote students’ (1) awareness of ethical questions and knowledge of their historical contexts from antiquity to the present; and (2) ability to critically interpret and evaluate philosophical texts, positions, and arguments. In particular, we will examine a variety of ethical issues by focusing on forms or ideals of life (How should one/I live? What is the good life?), and models for relating to others (Why should I care about or be just toward others? Do we need friendship, love, community, and justice? What are just social relations?).

Here’s a clue, Erik: the good life ain’t about poking fun at retarded kid and their parents. So like were you drunk or something?

parsy, who thinks the Asst. Prof. needs to go to that class, not teachit.

"Let them continue to expose what sicko pervs they really are."

Derangement over Sarah Palin continues to expose the sickness of the left. Let's not forget Sarah Bernhardt calling for Sarah Palin to be:
"gang-raped by my big black brothers" if she entered Manhattan.

And Letterman joking that Palin's 14 year old daughter was:
"was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez" during a Yankee game.

And let's not forget Saturday Night Live claiming that Todd Palin was having sex with his own daughters.

These people are vile beyond belief.

Oh my. He reminds me of the male version of the joke President Bush 41 tells about the pro-abortion protesters who crowded his limo on a visit to the West Coast. One rather homely woman held a sign up that said ‘keep your laws off my body.’ Bush looks at her and says, “No problem, lady.”

Where was Ted Kennedy on this? Rosemary Kennedy was his sister. .. The Special Olympics was established by her sister, Eunice, because of it. Seems to me that the democrats should have eaten and spit the author of this out.

You don't think Democrats really care about human dignity. Do you?

Dude — I’m a progressive and no, I’m not here to crash a party. I’m here to ask what the heck is going on with Palin? I’m stunned at the vicious attacks going on. This last article is sicko.
I sent homie poet a nice email and told him to STFU, you’ve just set us back 50 years.
I don’t understand the excessive polarization going on in our society. Civil conversation is no more and its out of control.

From your post:

Zero is the second coming of Carter. In that sense, Sarah would be the second coming of Reagan.

This is the only thing that’s happened in the last eight months that has given me any hope that the republic is not lost.

Many of us are beginning to see the building historical parallels in this. Like Carter before him, Obama has swung the nation so far to the left that it's nearly off the cliff.

Carter's economic destruction virtually guaranteed 8 years of GOP control, and Reagan was the best standard bearer of the conservative movement of the day.

Like Reagan before her, Sarah Palin will have years to promote her vision for the country, and to attack Obama from a vantage point where she cannot be targeted or attacked by Obama's machine.

By 2012, the country will be pleading with Sarah to take the reins.

“Mitt” is slang for “n OLD hooker.”

I guess the moniker fits; it sure defines Romney’s political life.

Your first taste of Mitt Romney will be the Obama Socialized health care, modeled after the Romney MA social health care (broke already and cannot supply the health care to the people) where you will be fined more than $1,000 dollars for not signing up for the social health care!

Go Mitt Romney my A$$!!!!!

Politics has always been rough, but things have gotten worse thanks to liberals. That's not to say conservatives don't have their moments, but liberals have mastered and made a standard part of their playbook the total personal destruction of their opponents and their families.

Thanks for standing up for common decency. Perhaps there's hope left we can live with and work out our political differences in a civil manner.

Palin will never run for President. She is just acting as a good distraction for a real Republican....Mitt Romney. Go Mitt, Go!!!


Uh why in the world are you posting this comment here on this thread? I personally find it both unrelated and inappropriate.

Many here would question if Mitt is even a real republican as much has he has flip flopped on major issues such as abortion, government health care, etc.

Unfortunately I have to agree that most of this comes from the liberal side. It started in the sixties when the party was hijacked by a bunch of extremist nutjobs. It just got worse. I have friends that when I try to explain that their ideas are extreme and actually don't make any sense they get angry and hostile. Change is good, but change without careful thought is to wrecklessly hazard an entire nation. We've got a lot of thoughtless change going on in this country right now.

But, what bothered me most is that children, especially handicapped children, are off limits and it ain't one bit funny. I just spoke with this author by email and he basically said that he was trying to point out that her reasons for resigning didn't add up and that the "families" focused on the "retard".

??

This is what I'm talking about. It's a kind of sociopathic toxin in public discourse. He has no idea what he did. V. Van Houten

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

Huffington Post gives in to Free Republic over Palin article

Fri Jul 03, 2009 at 09:59:34 PM PDT

On this one article it seems like Huffington Post pulled the piece because of Free Republic.

Palin Will Run in '12 on More Retardation Platform

Freepers state that they forced Huffington Post to take down and article by Erik Sean Nelson titled "Palin Will Run in '12 on More Retardation Platform"

Now I did not see the article but when you go to the link for the article, there is no article at all.

There’s only one reason and one reason alone why the left hates Sarah. Because she’s an attractive woman. Women aren’t allowed to run for President as Republicans because liberals feel that they have the market cornered when it comes to women & minorities and they will not allow Republicans to step into their turf.

Point taken but I still categorize the left’s Sarah hatred under the Clarence Thomas, Alberto Gonzalez, Miguel Estrada category. If you’re a conservative black, Hispanic or a woman, you are a target for liberal hate speech.
