Al Gore and Sarah Palin: that’s like eating strawberry ice cream with dill pickles!
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.
That’s half of the reason I post them.
Holy **** Kyle Bass and Roubini are going to be their. This is big time, they are familiar names to many here, via Zero Hedge and Glenn Beck...
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.
I would suspect that Sarah will dill more than his pickle before the evening is over. Should be interesting.
Hahahaha! She drives you guys nuts!
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.
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...
Bingo...TomServo just checked in (Pissant Jr.)
Soon all the others will claim she’s stealing their spotlight.
This one’s for you.
