Painful to watch, inarticulate, incoherent, nonsensical dribble. Hope she doesn't get anywhere in 2

Jeez Louise lol. I just watched some of it on YouTube and it really was painful to watch. Even if you're a conservative you should be worried about this woman. She is ignorant, undereducated and pitifully inarticulate. Although she could just be a victim of the hard hitting "gotcha" journalism of Katie Couric lol. The fact that this woman could be so popular with so many people really says a lot about the level of intelligence in this country.

This is why I didn't want her as VP. I don't understand why she does things. I don't understand her explanations. I don't like her rheteric. She just boggles my mind.

I couldn't agree more. It's one of those situations that I look at and say, "If I guess that 9 out of ten politicians are self-serving, sycophantic, greasy weasels, then I will probably be batting close to a thousand".

I don't think it has (or should have) anything to do with left vs right.

The woman is clearly borderline delusional. She knows nothing and thinks she's qualified to run a country. She didn't manage to give a coherent answer to a single question that I saw. The fact that almost 50% of the population managed to convince themselves that she could have cut it as a VP is mind-boggling. I remember seeing John Cleese interviewed, and when asked about Sarah Palin he just burst out laughing. That's how I feel - it would be funny if it weren't so serious.

McCain I liked, I think he would have been a decent if uninspired president. But Palin? She's a nutcase.

PS - evidence of her anti-scientific, religiously bigoted, out-of-this-world views: watch her talking about fruit flies on Youtube.

Come on Watchman. This has nothing to do with left or right crap. It's just calling it as you see it. The woman is an idiot and her beliefs are just plain wacky. She thinks the troops are on a mission from God, she didn't know what countries are in NAFTA and couldn't answer Katie Couric when she was asked what newspapers she reads. Just go and search out some of her inane statements on Google. There is no debate here Watchman: the woman is an idiot and not fit to hold office; which is true of much of the rest of the government. It is actually a good thing that the media attacked her so vigorously because a person like her is dangerous if she gets in a position of power. The stuff with her kids I don't agree with, but as for her, I hope the media destroys her.

Damn son ... Imma get you fo dat one!

Palin ... is ... an ... idiot. More so than many other politicians. But I probably wouldn't disagree if you started labeling other congress members as idiots as well. I am going to go eat wings right now ... foo. But, I am glad you clarified my errors. It still doesn't matter. She has said so many idiotic things and is obviously so ignorant on so many matters that it is irrelevant if I misconstrued those statements I mentioned. She is a religious fundamentalist and very ignorant. I don't want people like that having power. It is dangerous. She is a lot like Bush ... but I know you love him.

I also had to say this. When it first broke out that Sarah Palin was resigning I heard somone on TV say that they had always associated her with 2012.

That makes me laught histarically....you know, because 2012 is supposed to be the end of the world....

How many other poiticos are as inept as sarah but hide behind big words?..... plenty. She is just one of many. I'd rather they all were like her so that they would be easier to identify.

Sounds like somebody has a case of PDS. "Palin Derangement Syndrome"! I guess I just don't understand why people on the left hate her so much! From the moment she was announced as VP nominee, the media did everything they could to tear her down. The only other politician I can think of that was attacked as much as her lately was George W. Bush. It seriously vexes me. What has she done to deserve the attacks on her an her family?

I wasn't exactly thrilled after McCain picked her as his running mate because I didn't feel that she was ready for the job, but I certainly didn't expect the barrage of attacks from the media. Although, looking back, I probably should have expected it. The MSM is very liberal and she's a conservative woman. It's only natural that they would try to tear her down.

I watched her speech too, and while it wasn't the most magnificent speech I've ever heard, I didn't really see anything wrong with what she was saying. You and others like you like to pretened like she is some dumb religious zealot, but I have seen no evidence of this and those who say it are never able to supply it. Would it be so hard for the left to just say that she's someone they disagree with? I suppose that's the difference between the right and the left. I see more of this vitriol on the left far more than I do on the right. It's like the left has to believe that the people they disagree with are evil, ignorant, and backwards. The left seems to believe they are fighting bad people, not bad ideas while the right seems to believe they are fighting bad ideas, not bad people. All you have to do is look as far as the whole Carrie Prejean issue to see this. Obviously, there are conservatives who engage in this type of behavior, but I have seen it FAR more on the left and it is something that shouldn't be done on either side.

TP, I'm actually disappointed in you on this one. I would think that you would actually look for the truth on this matter instead of just believing the MSM tells you. Sarah Palin never said the troops are on a mission from God. She said in a speech at a church that believers should pray that the mission that our leaders are sending our troops on is a mission from God. In effect, she believes in praying that God is with our troops. I'm sure Barack Obama, who says he is a Christian would pray the same thing. This is a far cry from saying "Our troops are on a mission from God in Iraq".

Your second point is the one I'm most disappointed in. The whole NAFTA/Africa being a continent thing was a hoax!!!! Martin Eisenstadt, The person who leaked this "info" even came forward and admitted that he purposely leaked misinformation. He's actually done it before in other instances! The idea that Palin didn't know Africa was a continent and didn't know which countries were in NAFTA has been proven false already.

As for the newspaper gaffe, this is the only thing you've said that is true, yet I don't believe this automatically makes her an idiot or moron. Obama said the US had 57 states. Biden said Roosevelt had fireside chats. A lot of politicians make silly mistakes in their interviews or speeches and yet I don't see you commenting on any of them, which is yet ANOTHER indication that you may be suffering from Palin Derangement Syndrome. I would recommend ceasing all drinking of haterade immediately. Just give it to yo' momma. She'll drink anything! Bottle included. ;o)
