Until you can say you’ve done as much to protect and defend our rights and freedoms as she or her son (who’s in the military) have...then I suggest you garner up some sense of decency and at least appreciate the simple yet profound wisdom she offers...regardless of whether you ever vote for her or not.

Well, it was good enough for a survivor of a Nazi death camp who became one of the greatest psychoanalysts in the world, so I guess Sarah thought it might be a tad more important than you do.

Viktor E. Frankl, M.D., Ph.D., Viennna, Austria, 1905-1997, was a celebrated neurologist and psychiatrist, and author of 32 books. Some forty years ago in his national best selling book Man’s Search for Meaning, Dr. Frankl advanced the idea that to have freedom endure, liberty must be joined with responsibility. To that end, he proposed that the “Statue of Liberty on the East Coast be supplemented by a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast.”

you’re right... there was a much better quote today:

“All Americans should get tested for HIV”
-BH0bama

or

“American will no longer be the leading world economy”
-TGeithner

those are so much better

It's only inane to you because you haven't exhibited the kind of responsibility and call to arms she has. Actions speak louder than words. If all you do is sit on the sidelines to mock and point fingers for the people who dare to enter the *arena*, well then...there's even more hope for Obama than you.

It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." ~ Theodore Roosevelt

And to be fair to Palin, I’m sure she really did have some keeper lines in her speech. She usually does.

You not only insult Sarah, you insult Frankl.

Frankl's work largely involved people learning to overcome the effects of poisonous mental and emotional attacks precisely like those embodies in your "questions."

LOL, I really have to thank you - you couldn't have possibly illustrated the viciousness of what Frankl taught people to understand and heal from any better!

Palin's had her share of groaners, but it seems to me she's in the stage of her possible candidacy where she's continuing to try to put out the tone she wants people to pick up on when they consider her. Her brand name has been and continues to be samaged by the liberal media, and may be permanently poisoned by their bizarre obsession with her.

I would share your initial opinion except I don't know of any politician whose speeches interest me that much. I don't think what she does with these speeches is engage on some policy-wonk level. I think she's doing what Hillary Clinton's "listening tour" did. Remember how we all laughed at that? Did a helluva lot of good. Palin and her staff know that she doesn't have to get out there and be deep; her fans don't need it, and the unconverted don't want it. They want something simple to take away from her appearances, and it seems she's trying to do that. Makes sense all around.

The MSM damages themselves by their continued attack on her.

By the time 2011 rolls around, the public will be tired of the constant media attacks that they will no longer have an affect.

They’ve already lost their effectiveness and have made the media a pathetic parody of themselves.

Sniping about what someone wears or other trivial things doesn’t matter.

The MSM continues to lie while Palin continues to preach truth.

Truth will eventually win out.

It always does.

Palin is a lot smarter than most people will ever know.

Worshiping?

Not even close.

No one here is doing that.

You want worshiping, go read a DU thread about Obama and how their legs get all tingly when he talks.

Let the media continue to throw their pebbles and their petty little snipes and spread their rumors.

The truth will win out and the lies will crumble under the weight of truth.

Imagine 2 years from now, Obama making excuses and blaming his predecessor for his failures while Palin stays on message.

Who wins that one?

Obama?

Not even on MSNBC

I attended kal state at Stanislaus. I'm amazed they let her speak there. I was there on 9/11. There was some raghead camel humping teacher who wrote a book and went on the lecture circuit how we had it coming. They (the campus) had posters of the Israelis exercising crowd control on the ragheads and the caption said, "Who are the terrorists?"

I'm surprised they let her speak.

We can hope, but that's no necessarily the case. But I've learned through experience not to discuss this matter in depth on FR.

I've been called a hater here, so I'm no worshipping FReeper, but if you can't see the wave of venom spewed over Palin, you're really not paying attention. All this time after the election, and which of the former candidates are they STILL going on and on and on about?

You have the right to not care for Palin, of course, but you really think she's been treated just like every other politician? Come on.

Per your tagline, is reaching the light anything like the truth? Might a person un-schooled by liberal N.Eastern universities possess it? How about women? Are they capable of knowing it?

The reason I ask is simple: the truth is often mistaken as something too complicated for the masses to understand. Better left to 'wise latinas', in other words.

An example: Suppose you buy a truck from me but aren't thrilled with the tires, and I agree to replace any tire that fails after a hundred miles. You come back after fifty miles with a flat but my lawyer hears of this and decides to take it to the Supreme Court where everything from how you drive to what you were driving on comes into question- even though we had an agreement.

This is where we (The People) are with our government- they simply are not honoring 'the agreement' and we find ourselves, today, being led by one of the biggest liars ever elected to President. An educated liar. He can agree to anything, yet when he fails to uphold his part, he can tell you to get lost.

As a fervent supporter of the 2nd ammendment, it sickens me to think that almost half of the judges on the Supreme Court would ban guns altogether if they could. And these are scholarly people with degrees to prove it. Their problem is that a very simple truth stares them in the face and they refuse to/can't see it.

In Mrs. Palin's world, I would have bought you a replacement tire yesterday because I said I would. It's refreshing to have someone in public who isn't afraid to stand for truth rather than lie and obfuscate what is otherwise very straight forward.

On national security, on the economy, and on energy in particular, her vision of what would be good for America rings true to me. I resent being lied to about wind, solar, and Green energy in general, or being told we're in a recovery with 10+% unemployed, and that shutting down oil rigs in the gulf for six months helps us how?

Sarah may seem too simple for those with a palate accustomed to the varied and complex politicians we've been so fortunate to sample over the years. What's coming from the White House these days resembles vinegar more than a fine zinfandel. If we're lucky, by 2012 we'll all be riding in the back of a pickup truck heading out of Oklahoma in Grapes of Wrath II. If not, we'll be hitch-hiking.

Victor Frankl was one of the great and incisive minds of the 20th century. I have heard him quoted often by real scholars. The fact that some ignoramuses don’t recognize wisdom does not make it less so.

I still stand by what I said...and he wasn’t attacking her so much as he was attacking the important statement Palin made about freedom coming with responsibility.

"The Declaration of Independence was the Declaration of Responsibility too." - Sarah Palin

The Declaration asserts self-evident truth. It asserts the equality of all men before the One Who created them. It asserts that our God-given rights, specifically the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, are unalienable. And it asserts that the reason for the existence of human government is to protect those rights.

Which, taken with the simple straightforward words of our Constitution, means that every officer of government in America, in every branch, and at every level, has a sworn duty to protect those rights.

Which flies in the face of Mrs. Palin's claim that abortion should be "left up to the states."

Yes, implicit in the Declaration of Independence is the concept of responsibility. She's right. But her stated position on abortion runs one hundred and eighty degrees out of phase with her own statement.

“It’s the worshipping freepers starting inane vanity threads like this.”

To me a “worshipping FReeper” is someone who posts every interview Duncan Hunter has with a 600 watt dawn to dusk AM radio station.

Pissant - if you're running out of losers to support (DeVore, Vander Plaats, Barrett, etc.), I'd like to suggest you consider Ovide Lamontagne of New Hampshire - lackluster candidate, lousy personality, running against a woman and at 9% in the polls - your kind of candidate.
