Of Course Sarah still has influence.....

Tell you what, in just a little while, an official FreeRepublic PDSer will make some kind of snarky remark against her here for no reason other than that she’s Sarah Palin. They troll for her name in the headlines

You're correct on both counts.

I Know! I figured you out a while back....you love to draw out the Palin haters here who are actually a small group of about 30-40 active members but make a lot of noise with their hate.

Speak and it shall be done!

Susch a meaningless politico as Sarah P sure draws the venom.

She’s been meaningless since October, right?

No one wants to hear what she has to say, except for, say, all of rural, working, God-fearing, gun-owning freedom loving America.

He is gonna need his Chakra released after she gets done debating him ( if she does)...

She needs to contact BURT RUTAN and read his reseach or even go meet him on the work he has done to prove Global Warming is a bleeping farce...

It didn't use to be that way, I'd just post them to keep everybody up-to-date on what she was doing. She is something like Ronald Reagan in the early 1970’s or Golda before the PM job. But now, with all the haters, I love to get ‘em frothing. I may cause an aneurysm some day, from the reactions I see. LOL

BINGO! AND they’re still PO’d that her family wasn’t completely bankrupted financially by all the lies and innuendo. Instead she successfully bounced back...very nicely, and still has better ideas than the opposition!

At first, I thought SALT 2012 was a follow-on to SALT I and SALT II.

GORE: A moose bit my sister.

PALIN: I bit the moose, after shooting it, dressing it out, and grilling it to medium rare. It was good!

GORE: (completely shocked by what he just heard is totally speechless, even for the windbag that he is).

PALIN: Gore, you are such a sissy, get over it.
