One of the many reasons Palin will not be the Republican nominee:This
is not presidential.
"Where are the s'mores ingredients? This is in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert," says the woman who speaks with little accountability for her constant flow of sarcasm. Palin's desire to display her facility with put-downs instead of the intricacies of policy may explain why, after two years on the national stage, she is not seen by many as qualified to be president.
It's got to be Romney in 2012.
Keep an eye out for Bob McDonnell, VA governor, if not in '12 than '16. He's a far-right automaton in the GWB 'I'd have a beer with him' mold. Romney, Palin, and Pawlenty are damaged goods; I think the Republicans will go for an unknown but charismatic winger. McDonnell fits the role nicely.
Now wait a minute. Who is it here who "speaks with little accountability for their constant flow of sarcasm"?
"How many plumbers do YOU know making a quarter million dollars a year?"
"The old boys' network? In the McCain campaign, that's called a staff meeting."
"Senator McCain bragged about how as chairman of the commerce committee in the Senate, he had
oversight of every part of the economy. Well, all I can say to Senator McCain is, 'Nice job.' "
“You remember our slogan during the campaign -- yes, we can. Their slogan is ‘no, we can't', No, we can't. It's really inspiring.”
Sarcasm flows off Obama's tongue regularly.
Palin is shaping the battlefield for 2012. One of the issues is going to be the encroachment of the Federal nanny state. Michelle Obama's successful campaign to institute Federal regulation and control over local school bake sales was a tactical mistake. The obvious fact that she cannot control the size of her ass gives her no right to attempt to control the size of everyone elses.
The next election is going to be a general rebellion over encroaching Federal control of local issues. You might say that Palin is beginning to "Rub raw the resentment of the people"; a political tactic used to great success recently, and equally available to conservatives as well as liberals. It's Obama who threw the dignity of the office out the window with his unprecedented sarcasm both on the campaign trail and in office.
These are the opening shots in an all-out cultural war, and Palin is handling it brilliantly. It really rubs conservatives the wrong way when you tell them they aren't raising their kids right and pass laws to make them do it your way. Palin has a television show extolling freedom, liberty and American exceptionalism. She is setting the tone for an entire future generation of conservatives. And the Obamas are appointing bake sale czars to control our childrens diets. A lot of politics is creating and exposing contrasts between political parties. That's what she's up to. And it's working.
Jms fails to point to the untruth of what he describes as Obama's sarcasm.
And jms' wet dream of Palin's shaping the battlefield for 2012 reminds one of George W. Bush as commander in chief. She might head the Bull(s**t) Moose Party, but not the Republican Party. And what can we say about Palin's family cultural values that are role models?
jms continues to demonstrate his/her vileness about America's first African American President ad nauseam.
"Palin has a television show extolling freedom, liberty and American exceptionalism...And the Obamas are appointing bake sale czars to control our childrens diets."
Sometimes I think jms has got to be a parody troll. A sentient human being in full possession of their faculties couldn't possibly believe the nonsense he writes. Sarah Palin is a circus clown in the GOP's Big Top Tent, and more people every day are realizing what a bullet America dodged on election day 2008.
The WaPo's Fred Hiatt has a 12/26/10 column "How did obesity became a partisan fight?" It points out that Glenn Beck objects to Michelle because he doesn't like carrot sticks and Palin says the Obamas don't want us to have dessert. And jms seems to object to an anatomical aspect of Michelle, thereby displaying that he/she is all a**.
One thing is assured: Palin will get her just desserts.
However, I hear Palin polls very well among electronic voting machines.
