Palin is coming.

And the Tea Party is coming with her.

The slimes must be feeling secure enough that they can lower the smoke screen of hate and lies. That means we have the degenerate rat-bastards right where we want them!

This is essentially the same platform she used to win the Alaskan governorship and she delivered by kicking ass and taking names of corrupt republicans as well as democrats. That’s what drove her popularity.

Being opposed to crony capitalism (government shouldn’t be picking winners and losers) is a conservative principle that many democrats could agree with.

Frickin' clueless sheep in this country fall for the media narrative. Palin has been saying these things all along, but they are ignored and she is just spun as a 'dunce' or 'extremist'. Just like the relentless 24/7 media somehow pins economic ruin on a president that maintained unemployment at or below 5% and many consecutive years of GDP growth. Anyone who is to the right is savaged, while cretin's like Pelosi and Obama are propped up and covered for at every turn.

Regardless of any one's opinion on Palin in this Presidential race, Palin has been a champion for the people for many years, and especially since she entered the national scene. The media is too busy digging through her garbage and emails to report what she actually is saying.

Her base is much larger than they can fathom...and it will grow larger still.

Here's her entire remarks:

1. The American "Conservative" is no such thing.

2. Palin's speech was actually broadcast on CSPAN.

3. The NYT piece gets it about right.

"Do you want to know why nothing ever really gets done?” she said, referring to politicians. “It’s because there’s nothing in it for them. They’ve got a lot of mouths to feed — a lot of corporate lobbyists and a lot of special interests that are counting on them to keep the good times and the money rolling along."

The real money is in the medicine, not in the cure!

So, Sarah is saying all the right things, and she’s making great points, but she should stay on the sidelines; thus her ideas will have little consequence. I DON’T *THINK* SO! Bob

I think she speaks for all of us who want smaller, more efficient, and more HONEST government (if that’s not an oxymoron)!

Hard to be against the political elite when you ran with John McCain.

She may not have joined the fray yet because she does not want to align herself with the Republicans at all. IMO she’s going to go third party.

May be wishful thinking on my part, but I truly feel the momentum rising for her. Who wants to vote for a couple of dime-a-dozen political hacks like Mitt Perry or Rick Romney when you have a true Once-in-a-lifetime GIANT like Sarah Palin. There’s just NO comparison.

Not really a fair comment. She would never have been known outside of Alaska if she hadn't accepted the nomination. It didn't necessarily mean that she bought into everything that McCain stood for (whatever that is). She just took an opportunity. I'm glad she did.

Her base of support will be too small if she runs, and she will be too polarizing, but if she rises above politics and stays on this theme, she might actually attract people to her cause who have been reluctant to support her this far.

Total nonsense. She's going to attract Dems who aren't insane leftists as well as Rs and Independents.

No song better reflects the crisscrossing of two critical junctures in time than Bob Dylan's famous 1964 rendition of ....

"THE TIMES - THEY ARE A-CHANGIN"

The Times - They are a-Changin
Bob Dylan (1964)
===================

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
