    I don't think it matters who the GOP nominates in 2012, Osama will step on his genitals so many times between now ant then that he will become a pariah to most rational Americans who will vote for anybody but him.

She overdoes the folksy, "aw shucks" thing most of the time, but all politicians put on a false front. She may not be my favorite candidate, but she seems pretty straight up to me. She's definitely closer to a real person than the majority of candidates on either side. What is it about her that gets under your skin so much?

    Palin's "timing" hurt her. There was only going to be one media darling in the last campaign and the media directed their negativity at her all the while kissing Obama's feet. It was much easier for the media to attack her than her running mate, the war hero.

    I think the left thought the first woman to have a shot at POTUS was Hillary, along comes a fresh faced, attractive, feminine candidate like Gov.Palin and it scares the heck out of them, face the facts our political races have turned into popularity contests, not on who is the most qualified or who has better views on the issues, and like it or not the camera loves Sarah Palin, and with the correct marketing team behind her she could be a force....our current POTUS proved that its more about style and less about substance

    I'll do a 'Hew' here with my reply. The bolded text is mine.
    I've never quite understood the venom for Obama..., (he was not my choice, but I voted 'against' instead of for.
    It seems like many on the left (right) have an irrational hatred for her (him), but nobody has been able to explain it to me.(??) What has she (he) done that inspires liberals (conservatives) to such passion? Nobody is that exercised about lack of experience. She overdoes the folksy, "aw shucks" thing most of the time, but all politicians put on a false front.
    Your kiddin' me, right?

    I might ask you the same question about 'him'.
    Remember Matt, we were not voting for Palin for Pres., but for Mccain.

    Many did not want to go there.

    Matt, it is not so much that I am a fan of Obama, but that I was done, finished, through, kaput, with the previous administration, and all of what I percieved to be its lack of faith in America.

    I'm perfectly willing to recognize that we will agree to disagree.

    I allowed, recently to let my responce to someone become personal. I was wrong, and I apologized for it.

    Well, that did everything but answer the question. Are there any other Palin-haters that can help me out?

    I don't get it. When the majority of people (not saying you are one of the majority) talk politics they end up complaining about how crooked politicians are. That they are so far out of touch, they don't know the problems that normal people face everyday. Palin is a normal everyday American that doesn't appear to have forgotten where she came from. Out of nowhere she become Governor of AK, then to the national stage as a Vice Presidential candidate she is demonized for being a normal person because her views aren't aligned with the left. Prior to the election she was widly popular in AK. I suspect her popularity has decreased some simply because she's been beat up so bad in the national media, but she is still very popular. Why? Because she shares the same views as the majority of people. She is trustworthy. She follows through with what she beleives is right. She takes on her political enemies rather than trying to appease them. It just doesn't make sense to me at all. We hear everyday that most politicians are "tied to special interests". Palin doesn't appear to be that way and she (and her family) is treated far worse than crap.

    Do you honestly think Palin could have ever been a "media darling"? Her views don't align with the left.

    Sarah Palin couldn't have gotten a break from the government controlled media in this country, they wanted Osama to win period.
