    Wow.

    Not to get all feminist on you, but maybe make you think about something...

    I don't care for the woman personally or politically, and frankly found her resignation speech mostly incomprehensible gibberish, but calling any woman who's just doing her thing a "witch"--even if you disagree with what she's doing--strikes me as more offensive than simply saying, "That's a politician I'm glad is gone."

    I don't believe in electing and promoting women for the sake of electing and promoting women, but to see a duly elected woman feel the need to take herself out of the game is always unfortunate--in the (perhaps very) long run I think everyone, and the system, benefits from there being a better balance of the chromosomes in high places.

    I feel no huge sympathy with her, nor do I feel it's a great loss politically, and I sort of wonder if it's part of a career strategy (which would make me not care for her even more), but I hate to hear her called a witch. Gets my Gender Studies 101 goat.

    I agree with this, the woman has been attacked enough. She is a decent woman who entered an arena that is way over her head. I wish her and her family the best and the GOP is better off without her being the face of the party.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Palin threatens the "players" which is one reason she is so viciously attacked.
    I totally agree with you, Brian, that the professional politicians have lost sight of the fact that they are to serve their constituents, not themselves & their careers.

    But in order to defeat an enemy, one must know them well ... to find how best to defeat them.

    Don't you know that using "effect" as a verb is considered so impressive that it absolves one from making any sense? And "effecting change" is beyond reproach.

    Politicians on both sides use the word to great... effect.

    Don't flatter yourself. Been there, done that for a few years.

    Tis not my fault your ex governor was/is a fraud & made a joke of The Republican Party's money and legacy. She was a 4th rate choice and proved herself as such.

    As far as the witch comment, if the shoe fits, so be it. Now if we can just figure out which 100 or so pair we're talking about that was paid for by The GOP. Ironically nobody is able to get along with her. Hmmn. Just stating facts.

    Seriously, I hope she runs in 2012, or stays in the national spotlight in some position.

    As UB says, "you may not get what you expect, but will certainly get what you deserve."

    It is amusing that there are some on this forum that object to mindless hatred and loathing. Oh mirror, mirror on the wall?

    Please Jacob go ahead and provide specific details to how she was a fraud or cheat. I would love to know because i think if the party would stop pandering to the left she would be exactly what we need but its all about getting votes and not actually running on your morals or beliefs. She had a bunch of frivolous ethics claims filed against her all of which she was found innocent on. The GOP bought her some clothes. Hell they bought commercials and a lot of other things as well. Why aren't crying about those things as well. She needed to dresss a certain way for the RNC and they bought her clothes. Who cares find something substantive to cry about.
