Rational thinking is not a characteristic of the liberal mind.
Rational thinking is also not a characteristic to borrow part of your phrase of some people on here when it comes to Sarah Palin which is cracking me up with some of their anti comments.
Her announcement has rearranged the chairs on the deck and am enjoying every minute of seeing people squirm and wondering what is next while trying to put her down for resigning. She has scared people from both sides of aisle which means it was a smart move.
If I was a candidate for office, I would have been sending her a message immediately that I would love for her to come in my district or state to campaign for me. Now that would be a smart move IMO.
