Sarah Palin is an Idiot

Posted By: The Cheapest Skate in Politics on 09/09/2008 at 07:45:11

Ok, the Republican Party just lost my vote. I had fully intended on voting for McCain but now that Sarah Palin could be the next president, I guess Obama/Biden will get my vote. Sarah Palin is such an idiot--she knows nothing about nothing (except how to raise her kids like poor beltway kids: one in the military and the other pregnant-and-under-18). I guess that's why they picked her; if that's what America really is. I want no part of that. I can't believe I'm going to vote blue but she's a deal-breaker.

Here is what scares me,thousands of what I thought were semi intelligent women are saying how wonderful she is. She is an idiot, liar and maybe even a criminal, but I don't know that for sure yet. People who say she is the real deal are also idiots, she is a right winged evangelical christian who is a wacko! By the way, what ever happened to separation of church and state?

Posted by Blake at September 16, 2008, 11:09 pm:
I was going to vote for McCain as well. But after seeing that interview with Charlie Gibson, I am scared. Not just because of the Bush Doctrine segment. But just war in general, this person is irrational and lacks diplomacy. I mean, Russia, you want to go to war right away with Russia (without any kind of buffer in diplomacy)? Last time i checked we are still at war in Iraq, and Afghanistan (and possibly Pakistan). And she might even well want to go for the big "I" Iran, no way! You start pissing off everyone they will come back and gang up on you. Remember Rome? The Romans practically pissed off every barbarian tribes in Europe and in Asia, look what happened to them?

Oh my, I am sooo glad I am not alone. I too was going to place my vote for McCain... I just don't know what could be going on in that man's head. Doesn't he look in the mirror and realize that there is a good chance he could leave this world soon and we would be stuck with a complete no nothing buffoon to run our country? You can pretend your way to the Alaska Governor's mansion, but you can't pretend your way through the presidency! I am soooo frustrated.

Posted by Allison at September 17, 2008, 10:39 am:
Glad to see I am not the only one here on this situation. I am a registered Republican and has always been since I first voted. I know George Bush is not the most smartest man in town, but I supported him in 2000; which I regret doing - his party really messed up the economy. But Sarah Palin? she has lesser experience than Obama. Is McCain smoking crack? Why is it that most Republicans are blinded by this hype? Doesn't McCain know that there is a chance, in his old age that he could pass away and this derange lunatic will take over? This really concerns me so much. The integrity and fidelity of our great country are at stake here.

Posted by Eric at September 18, 2008, 1:41 am:
Goodness, where do I begin? All I can say right now; She makes Bush look like a valedictorian.

I think McCain has got a bug in his head...Paris Hilton would have been a much better choice than "Appallin' Palin"...

Posted by Lynn B. at September 18, 2008, 5:49 pm:
This woman is not fit to be in the position of executive leadership. The Republicans messed up the economy and I just got laid off last week [from a bank i cannot mention]. Truly, from what I have seen, she and McCain are dead wrong on the subject of the Economy. If you make more than 200k per year, fine vote for Palin and McCain, you want that big tax break cause you are that rich. If you make less than 200,000, I suggest vote for the Blue team, you'll get more tax break from the blue team. I hate to say this, But I am going to vote for Obama/Biden. I still am Republican at heart, but I realized that McCain just has a hair trigger when it comes to decision making. One example, look at his choice for VP.

How irresponsible of any American to vote for McCain/Palin!! This woman could be a cancer cell away from being president, if elected. I, for one, do not want her near "the button." People who do not want to vote for OBAMA because, horrors! he's black should then just not vote. He is inexperienced you say. What was Cheney's excuse? Experienced as they come and what did he do besides run the country for the last 8 yrs? Got a balanced budget and ran it up 10 TRILLION dollars. Ooops...that was Bill Clinton's fault. And the prosperity of the 90's? I forgot that, too. It was trickled down from Regan. You remember him...Death Valley Days. He had a gig in the 80's...What a fine actor he was!!!!

Posted by heya at September 19, 2008, 3:15 pm:
PALIN'S Resume: local sportscaster girl, 4 years on the city counciland 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people. Facts are facts people...

Posted by Milton F at September 19, 2008, 9:00 pm:
Nobody is commenting on the fact that our government is broke. We cover our budget gaps by selling bonds. Selling bonds causes our currency to lose value relative to other currencies. I don't think Palin has any knowledge this if she is even considering another war. We simply don't have the funds.

Posted by Mike at September 19, 2008, 10:39 pm:
At first I agreed with Bush/McCainPalin wanted to privatize our retirement or social security. But seeing how this close call of AIG and other banking and investment institutions happened. I am glad that we did not do that. I am convince now, PalinMcCain are just a bunch of tool, they really do not know anything about the economy. They should start truly caring for the middle class.

Posted by RickRed at September 20, 2008, 2:31 am:
I am guilty of this. At first I did not want to vote for Obama because he is black, yes, I am somewhat of a racist sure, but I am not the only one. I realize that this election is really important and our economy is at stake. Palin/McCain is not right in the head, they flip flop on their issues way too much.

Posted by Deb at September 20, 2008, 8:10 am:
This woman is scary, she lies at the drop of a hat, her 80% approval rating in Alaska was when she was handing out checks from (gasp) the oil companies.McSenile is too old and out of touch. We need Ombama and great idea above if you can't get over the fact he is half black don't vote do anything but DON"T vote McSame/Palin

Posted by Adam S at September 22, 2008, 7:36 am:
It seems insane that she did not travel outside of North America until 2007! How can she possibly know anything about the way the world works?

Posted by Lisa Lang at September 23, 2008, 11:49 am:
Plain is not an idiot, make no mistake about that. She's probably evil, but not stupid. She is dominant alpha female, she for sure wears the pants in her family. Palin = Chaney (both are scary, secretive, and evil) I also have to question her faith base, she is just using Christianity for her own agenda.

Posted by Former Repub at September 23, 2008, 12:38 pm:
I can honestly say that the Palin addition to the ticket secured my vote for Obama. Despite being financially conservative, I cannot stomach the Right Wing Republican party members, playing McCain like a puppet. This so called upstanding "moral" woman, is chosing to hand her Down's Syndrome baby off to a nanny when he most needs care and intervention; parade her underaged daughter's sexual mistakes in front of America; and keep the funds for the "Bridge to Nowhere" project for Alaska. (Yes folks, she turned down the project, but she didn't return the federal funds). If these are examples of upstanding moral values - NO THANKS

Posted by Another former Republian at September 23, 2008, 7:15 pm:
OMG.. so far all of my thoughts have all been printed here already. This feels like home. I would rather become a suicide bomber than put our entire country at risk by voting the McCain Palin Ticket. She definitely is a deal breaker for me too. Are people really that stupid or blind that they think she is the cat's meow? Perhaps we should go back and read a copy of the Emperor's New Clothes, to try to understand what is going on here. I had a dream last night. They put oil rigs off of all of our shores, then they put nuclear power plants dispersed throughout our nation, then they assassinate McCain in a covert fashion. Everyone thinks he died of natural causes, due to his medical history. The stage is now set for Sarah the no nothing, no diplomacy, hothead, to involve us in a war that will get our entire country blown to smithereens, since they no longer need the American Worker and fear the American Intellectual. This was one of the reasons that many companies got the heads up and left our shores to move their businesses to where the new work forces in China and South America are. The End ~ P.S. Look up Morgellon's Disease. See where it is and isn't. The only places that it isn't is South America, Russia, China, and Africa, except for the southern tip. Co-incidence? Watch your sources of food people! They bought the FDA to help them do you in. P.S. to the Former Republican.. you forgot to mention that this 'brilliant' woman, who could end up being our fearless leader brought her downs syndrome preemie baby, into the RNC to deal with thousands upon thousands of germs for hours on end, just to win votes. No shame and no brains and no motherly instinct going on here, obviously.

Posted by Burton at September 25, 2008, 3:27 pm:
This woman believes that the world was created 5,000 years ago. She is mentally ill. She has no concept of what war is...She has no historical context to work GOD, what is wrong with this country!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Yvonne at September 26, 2008, 5:37 am:
Sarah palin is ignorant, and crazy enough to get up in front of millions and act like she is qualified to be vp. Instead of answering I don't know, she is defensive and throws wacko responses out there. She is a pit bull for sure and beats up Obama every chance she gets and expects to win on that alone. What kind of judgement does Mccain have choosing her? What kind of judgement does he have to lead the country? I would think Obama would be way ahead in the polls, but then I remembered that the same american voters put bush in the whitehouse for 8 years!

Heard today in David Letterman's NO #3 on Sarah Palin To improve her foreign policy experience, Sarah Palin visited the International House of Pan cakes yesterday. It is not really that far from what Sarah is capable of doing......

Posted by Robert at September 27, 2008, 6:02 am:
Up until a few funny weeks ago I thought the stituation was funny. I'm just plain scared now. We all know the reason McCain picked Palin was to gain the votes of disaffected women voters who are pissed that Hillary didn't win the nomination. I would like to think that the majority of American women voters are to smart to fall for that, but after seeing an obvious fuckup like Bush win his second term... Jesus. As far as McCain's experience goes if I remember correctly didn't he lose the Presidential nomination to Bush in 2000. What... is he any more experienced now than he was back then. VOTE FOR OBAMA/BIDEN PLEASE AMERICA.

Posted by Absurd at September 27, 2008, 2:37 pm:
McCain thinks he's a hero??? He failed in his mission and got caught!!! This makes one a hero???? Maybe thats why the CEO's of the major banks will still reap millions when they leave....they FAILED!! Therefor we Praise them!!!

When Katie Couric gave her the chance to clarify her idiotic claim to know foreign policy because Russia was "next door" to her, she didn't. All she did was get the first syllable of the word "caricature" out of her mouth before her tiny brain shut down and then managed to glance away and say, "reporters..." Yes, shame on you reporters. You're not supposed to report what this idiot says. You're supposed to report what she WOULD have said if she had a brain.

Posted by tackleberry at September 28, 2008, 4:15 pm:
This woman is a pta leader,just have her hand out cupcakes,pure simple minded, hick. The population of her state is around, what.........1000, it's insulting,no vp there. Mccain is told what to do,like a trained ape,period. It starts making Canada look like a mighty nice place to live now.

Posted by Edward Conley at September 28, 2008, 6:43 pm:
First the coup in 2000. Then the rigged Diebold voting machines in 2004. The lies told about a true war hero (John Kerry) (Swift Boat Vets, bunch of moronic liars) Now the Republican party is acting like America has the attention span of a field mouse, and we won't notice how they have totally F%^ked this country up because they have nominated someone with HollyWood looks to be Vice President. Excuse me while I go puke. I agree with the poster who said Canada is looking good about now. Hell, I'm from Michigan. We are pretty much almost like Canadiens anyway, might as well make it official.

Posted by Vanessa at September 29, 2008, 1:33 am:
I for one am a Democrat and a passionate supporter of the Obama-Biden ticket because I believe in what they stand for!!! It honestly scares the life out of me to think what could happen to this contry if McCain-Palin were elected into office!!! Many support the ticket for the simple fact that she is a woman... I would like to challenge those people to do some research and look at the facts!!! OBAMA-BIDEN '08 is the only hope for our contry... let's be responsible Americans and vote for the right ticket!!!

Posted by Matt at September 29, 2008, 1:53 am:
I'm an independent. Was leaning Obama but unsure. But now, add me to the list of people who CANNOT vote for a ticket with a blathering idiot on it. She simply has no idea of what is going on. How could America get to the point where we would even consider someone like this for such a high office? At least it seems they know she's a mess, which is why they'll hardly let anyone talk to her. So sad.

Posted by Suzanne at September 29, 2008, 9:41 am:
I totally agree. McCain has had cancer 4 times...and it is not totally gone. If Palin got into office we would be in serious trouble! Go Obama!!!

I am glad to see that I am not alone in my feelings on Palin and McCain. I have voted Republican my whole life. After giving Bush two chances and seeing how he has seemingly mishandled almost everything that he has touched. We are certainly much worse off as a country. Obama may not be perfect, but at least he seems calm and level headed. I cannot possibly vote for McCain, the hot-headed gambler and his totally incompetent side-kick.

Seriously, McCain? Seriously? Now I have to vote for the Dem's.

Posted by jaci at September 30, 2008, 4:30 pm:
I will never vote republican again after Bush's screw ups. But this woman makes Bush look like a rocket scientist. She has no worldliness about her at all. I am so uncomfortable watching her interviews it's unreal. I think Joe Biden is going to rip her apart. She doesn't need any help looking like a blubbering idiot.

Posted by Jared at September 30, 2008, 10:24 pm:
Sarah Palin is an example of what is wrong with this country. She is ignorant and just plain stupid. I don't know a lot but I do know that I could do a better job than her. I once thought that John McCain would make a good president. Now I think he could be the worst ever if he gets elected. His choice for VP was horrendous. Sarah Palin should remove herself from the ticket and focus on her needy family.

Posted by ME at October 1, 2008, 1:29 pm:
I kind of like her, she is pretty and witty

Posted by Tanya at October 1, 2008, 8:30 pm:
I am so glad to see so many people think as I do. Sarah Palin would be the next Hitler. Seriously, folks. She has fired the librarian from her hoetown because she personally did not approve of some of the books there (censorship, illegally I might add), she put her highschool friend in the position of Secretary of Agriculture in Alaska because the woman "liked cows as a child"!!! She thinks she has foreign policy experience because Russia and Alaska are in close proximity to each other, she has private email accounts that she uses for business purposes...STATE of Alaska business! Firing and hiring of state officials based on their friendships or their blood relation to her.........geez............the list goes on and on. hitler was loved by the people and had charisma too until it was discovered that he killed millions of Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, brown haired/brown eyed individuals, intellectuals that did not support his policies........ You Palin supporters just wait and see what this idiot does if she gets in office. I can't believe that everyone cannot see through her. The fact that her daughter is pregnant is just the tip of the iceberg....if she's so proud of her family, why is it that no one else (kids) in her family is going to college???????? I guess her son must've inherited her stupidity. Yeah, I agree with the response above...she DOES need to focus on her needy family......God save them, and us from the likes of HER! And McCain can't be much better for picking her.

Posted by dissass at October 1, 2008, 8:40 pm:
I agree Palin is a blundering idiot who knows nothing about foreign policy or the economy. The only good thing to come out of this are the wonderful film clips displaying her stupidity. they make me laugh

Posted by SP at October 1, 2008, 9:08 pm:
Palin scares the crap out of me. Anyone, woman or man, who is as ignorant of world politics, economics, and even the pronunciation of the word "nuclear" should *not* be allowed to run for *any* kind of office. The scariest thing is that she appeals to the multitudes of ignorant soccer moms and mouth-breathing rednecks out there who fear a black man in office. Im shocked that she brought her down syndrome baby to a massive public gathering and lobbed him around like a ragdoll and Im even more grossed out that she is using her own daughter's pregnancy and now marriage to further her own agenda. Anyone who uses their own daughter in this way is capable of great evil. I hope like hell people start waking up and seeing how stupid and moronic she actually is.

Posted by kelcarib at October 2, 2008, 2:16 pm:
I am so glad I am not alone...the only person I know who is still voting for McCain after this Dimwit came on the ticket is my mother. She is a social conservative and absolutely in love with Palin's idealogies since she is pro-life. GOP will only get wedge issue voters now, so no one who is a thinking and reasonable person who cares about their country and the world could possible vote for them. As a former Repub I am heartily voting for Obama.

Posted by Pearl at October 2, 2008, 2:26 pm:
Even if she were informed, I still couldn't vote for McCain/Palin. I was a registered republican from Regan through Clinton. I could not vote for bush ii. If I had I would have to remove myself from the voting process due to my inability to make good choices. The past 8 years have given the republicans complete control of the government, the laws, and the economy. Our country is in shambles. And now, McCain wants us to vote him and his bimbo into office? The republicans are counting on us being the idiots. Let's show them we learn from our mistakes.

Posted by C. Darwin at October 2, 2008, 7:34 pm:
Palin believes the Earth is 5,000 years old and that humans walked with dinosaurs! She also believes that the world will soon end based on a Christianity myth known as Judgement Day. How can our leader be so simplistic? If our leader believes in this, how can we build a sustainable society? How can we continue to do well in the sciences? The US cannot compete with other developed nations with a leader as insane as this lady.

Posted by mike at October 2, 2008, 9:33 pm:
Since I am a Democrat and plan on voting for Obama...all I can do is laugh! It shows me that McCain has no common since. As like many others, I can't believe so many people think she is the real deal. Like this website says, She is an idiot! Did she answer any questions in the debate tonight? The only thing I can say about her is that she is great at NOT answering questions.

Posted by Lmel at October 3, 2008, 2:17 am:
I can't believe that republicans are saying that she did well in the debate. She was a total joke. She didn't answer any of the questions. She doesn't know anything and is a total dumb ass. Obviously Republicans are going to back whatever she says but I you use your brain that you'll notice that she doesn't actually have any kind of a plan.

Posted by Alex at October 3, 2008, 10:31 am:
Wow, the debate was quite telling. The McCain campaign can fool some of the people some of the time, but you know how the rest goes. She is a total idiot. I can't believe that a person like that can rise to such a level. I would have voted for Hillary, not because she is a woman (contrary to what republican strategists believe) but because she is qualified! HELLO! SARAH PALIN IS NOT QUALIFIED TO OPERATE A BLENDER LET ALONE ANY APPARATUS OF ANY GOVERNMENT ANYWHERE!

Posted by Craig at October 3, 2008, 10:17 pm:
Palin is a moron. I see that today she explained the reason she couldn't answer Katie Couric's question about what magazines and newspapers she read is that she was annoyed and her inability to name a magazine or newspaper was proof that she isn't part of the Washington DC or media elite. WHAT THE HELL IS SHE TALKING ABOUT? It only proved that she's a moron that couldn't even make up an answer or she was to embarassed to admit the only thing she reads is Field and Stream. She thinks she's qualified to be VP or President because she's just one of the neighbors, hll I know my neighbors and most of them aren't qualified to be a dog catcher. I want someone to be the VP or President that is hopefully a hell of lot smarter than most of us.

Posted by Jen at October 4, 2008, 7:25 pm:
The Republicans have gone too far this time. The ultimate insult to the collective intelligence of American voters is named Sarah Palin. How can they even attempt to pass this idiot off as a competent choice for the second highest position in this country? What's even more discouraging is how many American's actually back this joke! If this were a movie, viewers would dismiss the selection of Palin as a VP nominee as too far fetched to ever happen in real life. And yet here we are, potentially one heartbeat away from releasing George W from the title of dumbest President in history. How long did it take for Rome to crumble?

Posted by Greg at October 4, 2008, 7:37 pm:
It's good to see there are other people who see Palin for what she really is, a delusional babbling idiot. What scares me is that there are people who actually back her!!! How blind and narrow minded do you have to be not to see right through this paper thin joke?! What has become of this country's voters? I've been a life long independent because I feel voting party lines is the most destructive thing any citizen of a free society can do. With the recent failures on Wall Street, this great country has a rough road ahead. If Palin gets into the White House, I honestly don't know if we have any hope.

Posted by beck at October 5, 2008, 8:04 am:
The world is full of idiots regardless of sex. However, Palin ranks at the top of the list along with Bush. Anyhow, she certainly isn't up to the task of being a VP. Thankfully, it looks like that ticket won't win ...

Posted by Bobbie at October 5, 2008, 7:37 pm:
I'm a democrat, but honestly, it doesn't matter to me whether a person is democrat or republican, as long as you get out and vote. What does matter is how any person, especially women, can call themselves half-way intelligent and be an avid supporter of Sarah Palin. She does not know how to communicate effectively unless it's from a canned speech or rehearsed talking points. This woman doesn't have a clue about this country, and she has the nerve to try and attack Obama? She's only saying what her aides tell her to say. And I feel sorry for all the intelligent women in politics today who have worked hard to achieve Masters and Phds, only to be looked over as a viable VP candidate for this simple-minded woman.

Posted by Barbara at October 5, 2008, 7:54 pm:
Palin is a wolf in sheep's clothing...oops! Nope can't say that or she would have to allow a low flying piper cub to shoot herself. I see REAL nastiness behind those trying so hard to be charming coy smiles. I nearly puked with all the winking crap during her little self promoting speech at the VP debate. How cute when she tried to lift from Reagan the "there you go again" line. Scary Trojan MOOSE. What a pathetic person really.

Wow--I'm so happy to see that so many people feel the same way I do about Sarah Palin. The woman is truly a moron! Not only did she take 7 years to get out of college, it's said that she flunked out of 2 community colleges! Even though Bush is a moron too, Sarah Palin makes him look like a Rhodes scholar! In the unlikely event that McCain wins, we're in serious trouble. God help us all!

Speaking as an Obama-voting Republican (now, thanks to Palin), I abhor being in the same party as the previous commenter. Contrary to the belief of many liberals, some of us are in fact educated and capable of voting for the best person and not whomever owns the most guns.

Dear Far Right as They Come. I think you had better move over. If you were truly as 'far right as they come', you would know that a Christian who has sexual relations out of wedlock is considered a sinner in God's eyes and this woman would not be your idol. Palin had her first child 8 months after she and her husband had a self imposed shot gun wedding. Like mother, like daughter, and she is STILL not married to her baby's father. If rumors are true, and it certainly seems that way from the chronological sequence of events during the day that Palin 'supposedly ' gave birth to this last child, this could even be the second child of this daughter's, that was born out of wedlock. What woman would go without seeing a the nearest hospital when her water was leaking one month before it should have been, with a Down's syndrome compromised baby ? Not only to NOT go immediately to the nearest hospital to make sure that everything was ok, but to go give a speech and then hop on a plane to be up in the air for hours and hours, before the plane could land, while she was in labor. Last time I heard, there are recommendations that a mother not fly the last trimester of birth. With a developmentally challenged child in the womb her just flying TO the speech in Texas shows her lack of judgment and her lack of motherly concern, if in fact she were pregnant which I sincerely doubt. Flying on the day that her water was leaking and she was in labor is the top of this mountain of buffoonery.. What woman would put the airlines and her fellow passengers, and her baby ,and her own life at risk to have to possibly deliver this developmentally challenged child while in the air? Also, If you look at the ten commandments, you will see that to lie is a sin. Yet over and over Palin's speeches have been blatantly filled with lies and gossip and mud slinging. There have been absolute proofs of this by members of the press that have not been bought off or silenced to say otherwise. BY the way... last time I read the bible it was OUR Lord up there. You might want to remember that, if you want to stand in the "Light" of the Lord. God bless you, and may he open your heart and your mind to the truth.

Amen, Setting The Record Straight", Amen. Also, the very idea that this narrow minded, tyrannical, under-educated, under-qualified, faux-religious zealot might have the opportunity to hold and further political office, literally keeps me up at night. If we believe things are already so bad now, that they can only get better, think again. Things can become much worse, and they will with the Faux-Maverick duo running things. On the one hand we have the pseudo-war hero, McCain, who exaggerated, embellished, and down-right lied regarding his military record. He was a mediocre soldier at best, a dangerous, brash liability at worst (look it up, you'll see). On the other hand we have a woman who uses nepotism and favoritism to guide official hiring and firing decisions. Who is so clouded by her religious views, I fear she lacks the inability to make a sound, impartial judgement, if ever in office. Further, she is wholly inexperienced, and without someone telling her what to say, cannot form a single cohesive, intelligible sentence to support her "qualification" as V.P. Oh, and if you can't say "nuclear" (new-clee-er) not "nucular", you should be automatically disqualified! It's not "quaint" or making her sound like "regular people", it makes her sound dumb. Not what "We The People" need, and shame on McCain/Palin for thinking we are dumb enough to fall for it. Prove 'Em Wrong!!

This site gives me hope. I was once a stupid Republican. I was lucky I saw the light during George dunce head first term. I thought it was impossible that anyone could be more stupid than George Bush. Then 10 weeks before we are suppose to elect a President. The LIARs of the world bring out Palin, like George totally unqualified, but sad to say a REAL MORON. Who in the Hell would vote for a stupid ass when we are in the shape were in...Hello! This is not American Idol. I really don't know how stupid this country has become. My wife and I have our Passports. Our forefathers were smart enough to get out of Europe, it may be time to head back. Before they put the fences up!

Posted by Elizabeth at October 8, 2008, 8:17 am:
I am ashamed of my countrymen and countrywomen that this presidential race could even be considered close. Over the last 30 years the "dumbing down" of America, in ever laxer educational and professional standards, and in the acceptance by masses of people the boundless greediness, materialism, and me-first isolationism that is the new "American Dream," has taken us so far from what was good and right about the United States. McCain and Palin represent the worst of these changes in our society. The cynicism and disrespect shown by the Republican Party in nominating these two is an insult to the Republican Party itself as well as to the entire country.

Posted by Jacyln at October 8, 2008, 5:04 pm:
Please everyone vote for Obama/Biden! I can't believe anyone in the right frame of mind would vote for Mccain/Palin. Sarah Palin is an idiot! It is scary to think that she could be running our country if Mccain is elected and dies in office! She is a complete Moron. A moron!!! Please tell everyone you know to vote for Obama!!!!! We can't afford to have stupidity like Palin's in the White House. No country would respect us- we'd be a joke. Her running for vice president is a joke! VOTE FOR OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by ctsquared at October 9, 2008, 2:52 pm:
I think John Stewart summed it up best, when commenting about Sarah Palin's comment "Who is Barack Obama?" He said (paraphrasing) "We didn't even know who YOU were 5 weeks ago, who the F**K are you?" I really used to like McCain but that admiration dipped the last year or so and went through the floor when he piced her. Personally, I think he wanted Joe Lieberman, and when the GOP said, "No" picked her as an "FU" of sorts. Happily, from looking at the polls and debate results it looks like she will be back dressing Moose before too long.

Posted by concernedvoter at October 10, 2008, 6:16 am:
I just can't understand how the Republican base can be so blind towards her total lack of understanding. They IDENTIFY with her so much they are willing to convince themselves that it is OK that she is an IDIOT by calling her a Washington outsider and the real politicians "Washington ELITES" - LOL. No, they just know more than her, plain & simple.

Posted by Alabamaconvert at October 10, 2008, 9:36 am:
I have never voted democrat until this race. I can not believe people are really backing her because she can shoot a gun. I've heard of trophy wives, i think she would be more like a trophy VP. Just sit there and be pretty, and they do not want her to talk; because everytime she does, it just converts more people to Obama

Posted by ADM at October 10, 2008, 2:45 pm:
I can't believe what I'm seeing at McCain's rallies! They remind me of what used to go on during the Civil Rights era. Almost looks like KKK rallies. And as far as the black guy who stood up at McCain's rally last night and insisted that McCain bring up all of the supposed negatives about Obama at the next debate; he was probably a paid plant from the McCain side. I support the Obama/Biden ticket and suggest that eryone who reads on this blogsite does the same. And by the way, Sarah Palin is an INSANE IDIOT!!!!!!

Posted by ADM at October 10, 2008, 2:58 pm:
Republicans- I do feel sorry for your party that you have to be represented by "that one". I have plenty of friends who are repubs and have the utmost respect for them. We need to understand that being in America allows us to be ok with disagreement. That is the beauty of being an American. McCain's campaign has taken things way too far now. His campaign is bringing out the racists who have sat tight lipped for the last year or so, and now that there is a very good chance that a Black Man could possibly become President of the U.S. is just driving them crazy. People really do have their nerves! Afterall, this country belonged to the NATIVE AMERICANS in the first place! McCain/Palin have totally disrespected the republican party and the U.S.

WOW this blog makes me smile! I'm not old enough to vote, but I wish I could SO badly. All I can do now is raise awareness at my high school for the students who actually can vote, get them registered, and convince them to vote for Obama/Biden, not the lipstick-wearing-hockey-mom who claims to know everything about politics. Hey, and since my Grandma has a house in Canada, and lives right next to the North Pole, guess what?! She knows everything about SANTA! See, if my grandma actually believed that, she would be as stupid as Palin's claim to being BFFs with Russia. Please now, is this woman serious?! BARACK the vote!!!

Wow, I also typed in "Palin is an idiot" and am happy to find others as disgusted as I am. I think what concerns me is all of the Sarah fans who think it's so great to have someone "just like them" in the White, I don't know about all of you..but I want someone SMARTER than me in the White house...JEEZ..I am trying to envision her in high level would that go??? "you betcha, darn right, wink, wink...YIKES! Please vote for Obama/Biden..they are our only hope

Posted by maabbav at October 14, 2008, 2:15 pm:
So know we know or did anyone miss it? Palin, when asked about executive powers of the vice presidency ala Dick Cheney (who makes Darth Vader look like a Care Bear), said of course she aggrees with Cheney. That IS scary. Very scary.

Posted by Billy at October 14, 2008, 10:20 pm:
Sarah Palin: 1. misrepresented her use of eBay to sell her plane. 2. abused her official power by firing another official who refused to fire a police officer that she has a family spat with. 3. cannot name the publications she reads, likely because she doesn't know of any. 4. took 7 years to complete a bachelor's degree and jumped between 5 different schools. 5. belongs to a fundamentalist Christian theology. 6. did not raise her child correctly and is now dealing with teen pregnancy. 7. supported the bridge to nowhere, and when theh project was ridiculed, she kept the money. 8. speaks out against earmarks, yet she is a terrible offender of it. 9. does not understand that the role of vice president in the senate is only in moments of a split vote. 10. does not know what the Bush Doctorine is and attempted to lie about it. 11. is focused on 'winning' wars. You cannot win an unjust war. 12. believes she has foreign experience because Alaska is beside Russia and Canada. 13. does not have foreign experience because she only received her passport in 2007. 14. attempted to pull books she disagreed with from the library until the librarian objected. 15. is alleged to actually be the grandmother of Trig, since she announced her pregancy in the 7th month and that her daughter was away from school for 5 months because of mono. 16. believes a natural gas pipeline is God's will. 17. believes the Iraq war is God's will. 18. cannot answer direct questions and blatently switches to her prepared talking points. 19. belittled Obama's community organizer role by claiming being a mayor is sorta like a community organizer, but with real responsibility. 20. thinks she can capture disgruntal Hillary supporters solely because she is a woman. 21. IS AN IDIOT!!!!!!

Posted by LB at October 15, 2008, 4:20 am:
She is a product of the community college education system, no offense I went to community college before eventually going to a University. But I'm not running for VP either. She is an idiot and the right knows it, but everyone has sworn on the ole code of silence. (A few gutsy conservatives have spoken out and I commend them).

Posted by LZ at October 15, 2008, 1:33 pm:
Why are over 40% of voters pro Palin, but only 20% think Bush is doing an OK job? For goodness sakes, George is possibly smarter than Palin!!!

Posted by RGH at October 16, 2008, 2:11 pm:
Glad to see there are so many Reps out there voting Dem because of Palin. I don't get how anyone can like her. This is NOT American Idol...the VP is the proverbial heartbeat away from the Presidency. It's scary to think of her sitting down to a meeting with other world leaders like Putin - he'd eat her for lunch. What's she gonna do? Wink at him? I don't understand the people who want an "avg Joe or Jane" as president. You wouldn't want an Avg Joe or Jane running a company you had invested in. You want the smartest, wisest, worldliest, most intellectually curious, well-read, best-educated, thoughtful person you can get. And being president is a hell of a lot harder than any CEO's job by far. Simply mind-blowing anyone could think she's qualified. She's clearly done a bang up job running her own family...pregnant teen daughter who is going to marry a high school drop out. Christ! She and Todd should at least have encouraged the boy to finish high school with a promise to support the couple until he graduated. She's simply scary.

Posted by A_RepublicanMan at October 16, 2008, 11:09 pm:
I am just disappointed with McCain. Very! First of all, most Republicans are smart! We can detect B.S. from a mile away. I'm sorry but I cannot pretend everyday that Palin is qualified. Any Republican with a good common sense should realize that she is not qualified, not a single bit! The choices that were placed on the table is just not good. If I have to choose between the two, I am going to have to go for Obama/Biden. In the beginning of his campaign I was so enthusiastic and happy that this man is running. But after seeing him choose Palin and with all this stupid smear desperate ads that McCain is putting, made his party go downhill.

Posted by McLame at October 16, 2008, 11:26 pm:
Plain says American first. Yea right, really? If that's the case then give it back to the real true Americans (the American Indians). I am so sick of how they over compensate that they are such real Americans and Mavericks. You know what? I am pretty sure Obama and Biden loves America just as much as Mccain and Palin, well probably not Palin, since her and her husband wanted to disband Alaska to be an independent country separated from the United States.

Posted by LB at October 17, 2008, 5:46 am:
I am so glad to see that there are others out there who share my thoughts on Sarah Palin, who up until a few weeks ago was a complete unknown unless you lived in Alaska. I understand why McCain picked her, but honestly, I am sure there are plenty of well qualified women who ARE familiar with the way the US Government works and and who could make sound, rational decisions should the need arise. For a little while I actually considered possibly voting for McCain, and then he introduced Sarah Palin and that ended that. She is little more than a pretty face who cannot answer simple questions without being coached or scripted. She also takes every chance she gets to belittle Obama/Biden, which personally, I think is childlike and unprofessional. How can we trust her to balance the federal budget if she didn't even have the decency to return the money given to her state to do a project that never got done. She's a back-stabbing, manipulative little twit who needs to get her priorities straight - Namely attending to the needs of her handicapped son.- before worrying about running for a position she is incapable of handling.

I too was going to vote for mccain but once i saw his pick for VP, i wasnt going to vote for a beauty queen whos only qualification is that she can see russia from her house.

Posted by Brian at October 19, 2008, 9:42 pm:
I live in a red state (Arkansas), and McCain lost my vote when he chose Sarah Palin. His decision wasn't though out very well. I'm convinced he tagged Palin to get to those Hillary voters that weren't sold on Obama. I'm very suprised McCain chose Palin, especially since there was a chance she could be investigated on misuse of her power as governor of AK. If McCain makes bad decisions like his choice for the Vice President, imagine what he would do to our country. I'm ready for this to be all over with, and for Obama and Biden to get the "W" in the win column. Palin's 15 minutes of "Mavericky" fame are almost up, and it's time for her and her backseat driver husband Todd to head back to Alaska to finish her/his term and to watch their state's unemployment rate rise as it has since she's became governor. Hopefully Alaska will see the writing on the wall and figure out they elected an idiot to run their state. Please, for those people sitting on the fence, I encourage people to vote for Obama and Biden. You'll be glad you did. Oh, and to "Joe the Plumber", you wouldn't owe back taxes if we had Obama's tax plan in place for the last four years! I can't believe you're siding with the Republican party, when you're currently struggling.

Posted by JoeThePainter at October 20, 2008, 1:38 pm:
Holy Crap! wow, I guess I am not alone. Palin is an insult to the true Republicans who are smart and well informed. McCain just assumed that we are all stupid. Unbelievable, the audacity of McCain to think that way. I use to think that he is a real Maverick, but now I think he has Alzheimer's (no insult the people with Alzheimer's).

Posted by frank at October 21, 2008, 4:24 pm:
As a repulican I also MUST vote democratic for the first time in Histroy as PALIN is an IDIOT and the idea of her becoming President is an embarasshment. I understand the need to make the base happy and fired up but this is the reason that thinking people cannot stand her. Is it possible on any of the ballots to vote for McCain but wihthout Palin? I would rather have Biden as VP?

Posted by WhatColorLipstick? at October 21, 2008, 4:32 pm:
You know, for the life of me, I wonder just how much they are paying Palin to embarrass herself and her family as she has in the past month. Can she really be "that" stupid? I think she is a high maintenance chick and will just about do 'anything' for money. Guess she can look at herself in the mirror when she puts on her makeup to go out and do the garbage that she does, as she knows that win or lose she will have a 24Kt gold mirror to look into when this is all over.

I am more qualified for VP than PALIN and that is not saying too much.Mccain is all about war war war! Obama is about change, prosperity and hope, also foreign countries will look at us as the Country that over came and grew up if Obama is elected. Now we are seen as the hayseed backward country F**cks thanks to Bush and his redneck policies. There is no room for a Cowboy like that in the modern world, He shoots firsts and then asks questions .

Posted by Marty at October 27, 2008, 8:22 am:
Dear fellow Americans: Please read the following: Some of my friends may be interested in the following very interesting scenarios in the form of a very brief article, sent to me by another friend regarding the two candidates for President of the United States, Enjoy: What if John McCain were a former president of the Harvard Law Review? What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class? What if McCain were still married to the first woman he said "I do" to? What if Obama were the candidate who left his first wife after she no longer measured up to his standards? What if Michelle Obama were a wife who not only became addicted to pain killers, but acquired them illegally through her charitable organization? What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard? What if Obama were a member of the "Keating 5"? What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker? If these questions reflected reality, do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are? This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and minimizes positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities in another when there is a color difference. This should make us pause and think.

Sara Palin is not an Evil idiot, just a simple moron who is way out of her league right now, She is getting backed into a corner and doing what any dog does. fighting back with HATE and spewing lies to try to win.

I don't know about any of you but I am so sick of all of the undecided voters who are still making up their minds. WTF! Do you all not see how we are being drug through as a country now and if McCain and Palin get elected it will get even worse! They are using all of those supporters who you see at their rallies for votes and it's obvious. You all know damn well that McCain his wife or Palin would not be seen in public under normal situations with many of the people who have been showing up at his rallies. They are so blinded by the fact that a black man is running that they will side with the unstable McCain/Palin ticket. I bet you that if Barack was a white man this election would be a landslide for the Dems. This country is still fucked up as far as race issues are concerned!

Posted by Benji at October 29, 2008, 4:44 am:
Are you saying all the yahoos are for McCain/Palin? If so, I agree. But black man or no black man, I still think Obama will have a landslide victory. No matter what his skin color is, he is the smartest presidential candidate maybe in the history of this country. McCain is a phony. His past reputation as a war hero is highly debatable. His whole life has been a work of fiction. Just ask some of his fellow POWs about the truth. I don't know why the dems have not brought this up. And Palin is just as phony.

Posted by Trueline at October 30, 2008, 1:25 pm:
Aside from this becoming a legendary electoral circus. The McCain campaign made a VERY bad choice selecting Sarah Palin as a tool to connect with the simpleminded partisan female voters.

How can she even entertain the idea of possibly running the whole country when she had enough problems running a state with only 650,000 people, and thinks that being able to see Russia from her back yard qualifies her in foreign policy.

First off, stupid stupid stupid Repubs and you're gossip blogging because you have too much time, money, and not enough to do. Don't get me wrong, the only reason I found this was because it is the day before election day and I searched 'Sarah Palin Is An Idiot' on Google just because I was bored at work (believe it or not I make decent money in what I do and still vote for the little guy which anyone living in this current economy should realize is the right thing to do.) Moving on, I have always been a liberal democrat and the decision was clear as day to vote for Obama/Biden even before the Repub clinched their idiocy by picking Palin in this crucial defining election. You were dead in the water with Bush, and you decided to have flip-flop McCain join the sock hop. (Don't ask why, I just enjoyed the rhyme scheme.) When the original Bush election happened 8 yrs ago, I could have backed a LOT of McCain's views, even being a liberal democrat, but since the party went with Bush, he went back on so many of his core values, he is no more than a corpse puppet at the whim of a corrupt power-hungry party. YOU are all the reasons why foreign relations hate us. You LIKE that you are ignorant and want things to stay the same so you can keep your excess amounts of money to buy your Gucci bags and your fucking gas-guzzling SUV's! OPEN YOUR EYES! The poor have been taxed so much, THEY HAVE NO MONEY LEFT TO GIVE! Whereas you damn Repubs sit on your piles of money only to give out as much as the little guy in terms of taxes? Yeah, that's fair. You talk about Palin and her religious ignorance, when you all exercise the same ignorance with our economy, having faith in a party that only cares about itself. Share and share alike? And I could go on for PAGES about your racial ignorance. Oh jeez, I didn't want to vote for Obama cause he's a black. GROW THE FUCK UP! Ever stop and look around, white people are going to be a minority, if they aren't already! I hope you all burn in hell. Thanks for listening

As a former Naval Academy grad myself, I can say that I can now sleep soundly for the first time in the past couple of months as the spectre of Palin possibly becoming President is at least put off for the foreseeable future.

I'm happy to see Palin head back to Alaska, and McCain head back to Arizona with tails between their legs. We've heard the last from McCain. We haven't heard the last from Palin. She'll be back, but I think she fizzles as she won't be able to get the stench of corruption off of her hands. Thanks again for seeing through the smoke and mirrors and for voting for the best man to get the job done. ~Brian

Well, she cost Mccain my vote. Once I saw the Gibson interview, I basically soiled myself. I made 180 turn around at that point...I was actually terrified of this young Earth creationist moron being in the VP slot. In the process of switching my vote (still registered R now), I reconsidered all of my views, and I really can't see anything left in the 'R' to stand by any longer. Blue has always generally had the brains between the two anyway. For every Gingrich or Romney (who's bright, despite his religious indoctrination), the dems have 20 summa cum laude graduates. In any case, I'm glad Barack won, and I support him fully. He can't possibly turn this Bush created mess around in 4 years, so it's not going to be a pretty presidency. Hopefully the Republican party is completely finished for good. It's rotten, and it's ignorant; and the religious right needs to be purged from the party if it's ever to get my vote again. Too bad the shining stars like Newt, controversy and all, can't see it. I think he's a brilliant man and would be a good leader, but alas, he's blinded by his ideology as well. Kurt

What is still scary is the number of people that voted McCain/Palin. Can there be that many religious zelot in this country?

I had never voted for a republican in my life and I'm 55. I was torn somewhat, I didn't think Obama was the one, and I had always liked McCain. So I was planning on making my first Republican vote. Then he picked his running mate. How foolish could one man be? Paris Hilton would have been a better choice.

We can now breathe a sigh of relief!!! MCCain can now maybe focus on just why his campaign went way south (besides Sarah Palin!) Barack Obama is now our new leader and we all need to embrace this man and his new administration. It is what it is! He will have the WHOLE world looking at his every move and not everyone will agree with him 100% of the time just as any other president. Afterall, just look at what was handed to him. I think he will do a great job as does most of America. God Bless Barack Obama and his family.

Not sure I have the right answer for you Donna, but I have thought the same as you. I think that they brought Palin into the mix, thinking that not only would she create a diversionary buzz to keep eyes off the fact that the party didn't have anything to say positively about the issues, but that she would appeal to, and pick up some votes on, many different people that McCain was not a favorite with. 1) The Ultra Right Wing Conservatives religious zealots for sure but also: 2) Women for Hilary 3) Men who are controlled by their hormones and sex starved ( which is how she probably got in in Alaska where men have resorted to mail order brides who will brave the cold for money ) 4 ) Someone who could hurl irrational insults at Obama and Biden, so that McCain didn't have to 5) The people who want someone " Real " in Washington, as evidence by what was being said about Obama, and how real he is. Except for the "Women for Hilary" Vote, she did a good job on 4 out of 5 Obviously there are vast numbers of " Real " people in this country that are "Real" " Idiots " and " Really un-educated and mis- informed ", who relate to this self serving Bimbo, who professes to be a Christian, but can't even live by the Rules of the Ten Commandments, no less the rules of our Founding Fathers. Add these people to the vast amounts of immature, insecure, people who use power and money to make themselves feel like big deals and 'better than" and have a lot to protect by keeping the current 'game' going, who also might influence their employees to do the same, or else ! ( By the way, I saw a piece on Walmart and how they were threatening their employees to vote Republican in this election ) Then throw in all the people who don't have the time, or resources, or energy, or education, to access vast amounts of information, who would be easily manipulated by all the half truths and downright slanderous lies that were told over and over by McCain, Palin, themselves or in the ads, and also from the right wing media... especially during the last crucial four days of the campaign, and you might be able to come up with the numbers of people that you are wondering about. Truthfully, the weekend before the election, I was driving downtown to a local Green Market here in South Florida, and I had the radio on in the car. I was shocked to hear a McCain ad stating that Congressional Liberals were going to spend a trillion dollars of our tax money, and that Obama was going to be raising taxes on anyone making more than 42K a year. This ad was running every half hour from what I could tell. What shocked me was, that in all the time I was in the car, and heard the same ad over and over and over, I did not hear one ad from the Dems. Now, this is significant, as Florida is a BIG KEY SWING STATE. Monday night, before the campaign, McCain and Palin were both on a special SNL 2 hour show, and during that show I saw all Republican bought ads, mostly using the Reverend Wright speech , over and over and over. I noticed the lack of any Obama ads during this time. The thought crossed my mind that Obama had been threatened and was TRYING to lose the race. I could see how many people who only have time to listen to the radio while traveling here or there, and don't have time to watch much Tv, or be on the internet, could be manipulated to vote McCain. This is not to mention the robocalls that I never heard. Add this to basic immature and insecure bigotry and racism, and it isn't hard to see how the race might have been close with regard to the popular vote. Closer than anyone with reason would expect it to be. Luckily most of the people who are reasonable and can reason, live in states that are heavily weighted in electoral votes. All that said, Obama did very well in the red states too. I know that I have to focus on that, rather than focus on how could so many people still vote for McCain? And I have to return here, now and again, every time I see a frustrating article on how Palin might return here, and we have to hear her annoying whiny voice again ! Like I did tonight and read your post. So I used to be a Republican, when the party actually stood for something. I went Independent this year. I voted for Democrats, because looking at all the possibilities, I felt it was the RIGHT THING TO DO. Let's pray that Obama follows through and is allowed to live out his term(s). And Palin does some internet research and is too embarrassed to even run for dog catcher, when her time is up in Alaska, if they dont' find a way to impeach her now.

wow. As a Republican, that was a bullet dodge. I sure hope that this Obama will be true to his word, cause i gave this man a chance. If not, let hope that Romney or Bobby Gindal will run the next term.

Posted by Sarah Palin at November 22, 2008, 7:53 pm:
Thanks everybody for all the support, see you in 2012. And in case your wondering, I'm not an idiot, I'm not, I'm not I'm not...

Posted by John McCain at November 22, 2008, 8:06 pm:
The only answer for 2012 is Sarah Palin. So what she's a 44 years old woman that can't recite the alphabet from memory? She's got 4 long years ahead of her where she can learn all she needs to know.

Posted by Democratic National Comitte at November 22, 2008, 8:08 pm:
Please run Sarah in 2012 :)

Posted by Glenn Beck at November 30, 2008, 8:13 pm:
I want to thank Fox news, for pulling me out of that awful reality based network I WAS working for. And giving me a job with them. Of course I support Sarrah Palin, she's the only sane choice for america, isn't she?

Oh I have a pocketful of neocons, some right wing sprinkled dew...A war in my bonnet, and I just wanna Hannatize you. Come on meet me down at Crawford Texas, and I'll tell you why I really hate jews. Carl Rove is on the barbeque, with a side of Dick Cheeney stew.

Wazzup with the lines through the post. Our Big Brother Fed Government at it again?

I think most everyone who has posted here other than the Fox News people must be democrate. I cannot believe people are so biased against Sarah Palin. I am a conservative American and I vote Independent. Reason being that the person I vote for believes in what I believe in. I don't let the term Dem or Rep. sway me. I hope all of you that voted for Obama got what change you expected. I think he and his ideas are pathetic. He needs to be out of this country, he has proven by going all over the world apologizing for America. I am proud of America, it was before Obama the Leading country in the world. Now I think it is still great but Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Broke.
