Boy is that Palin a sleaze bag!!! she would not know the truth if it hit on the head. She besmirched Obama's reputation with lies and innuendo. Now she claims that she was forced to buy the $150000 worth of stuff that her and her family bought on her shopping sprees!!!
Has she no shame??? Time for her to crawl back into the guitter that McCain fished her out of

I actually sort of agree with her, but for very different reasons. If she was that unqualified, it was Fox's job to let us know before the election.

Many conservatives view Medicare, education reform and foreign assistance as heresies.
Many liberals refuse to concede Bush's humanity, much less his achievements.

But that humanity is precisely what I will remember.
I have seen President Bush show more loyalty than he has been given, more generosity than he has received.
I have seen his buoyancy under the weight of malice and his forgiveness of faithless friends.
Again and again, I have seen the natural tug of his pride swiftly overcome by a deeper decency -- a decency that is privately engaging and publicly consequential.

Before the G-8 summit in 2005, the White House senior staff overwhelmingly opposed a new initiative to fight malaria in Africa for reasons of cost and ideology -- a measure designed to save hundreds of thousands of lives, mainly of children under 5.
In the crucial policy meeting, one person supported it: the president of the United States, shutting off debate with a moral certitude that others have criticized.
I saw how this moral framework led him to an immediate identification with the dying African child, the Chinese dissident, the Sudanese former slave, the Burmese women's advocate.
It is one reason I will never be cynical about government -- or about President Bush.

For some, this image of Bush is so detached from their own conception that it must be rejected.
That is, perhaps, understandable.
But it means little to me.
Because I have seen the decency of George W. Bush.

Joan:
"decency of George W. Bush"

I am suddenly reminded of the late, great George Carlin and his famous use of similar oxymorons, like "military intelligence."

Now the smiling Palin passes and the real Sarah Barracuda emerges. Keep it up, Sarah, and you will dig yourself further into a hole. Politicians need to know how to be political.

I am not a big Sarah Palin fan, but she did not call Fox News cowards. It has been reported that senior advisors to the McCain campaign are talking anonymously about her. It is these anonymous critics she was referring to. This Campbell Brown piece sums it up nicely

The Palin pick was unpopular with a lot of Republicans and they want a fall gal. The after-the-fact Palin blame game is an effort to get the blame off of John McCain and the idiots who ran his campaign.

I think a certain segment of the GOP wants to make sure Palin isn't a possibility in 2012 or 2016. Thus the leaks.

That said, I think she's not well-informed about issues outside of Alaska.

Gov. Palin will either call a special election or appoint herself to the Senate should Stevens win and then be forced to resign. She isn't going away.

In four years, she should have enough clothes stashed away. I'm sure Mr. WaMu aka Home Savings will bankroll her next run for the Presidency.

Palin was the only major candidate in this election to grasp the necessity of available affordable energy to civilization and to have done something about it. The fact that she seems to bathe more often that the mudhens of the Left is just icing on the cake. Some folk are defined by the quality of their enemies. I would be proud to have the same folk hate me who hate Palin.

"I would be proud to have the same folk hate me who hate Palin."

Note Walter, these criticisms of Palin are coming from inside the McCain campaign.

And what exactly has she done about affordable energy, Mr. Wallis? Has she also done anything about renewable affordable energy as well?

Yes, "So", this whole thread was started by a troll...the normal population knows who Palin is calling "cowards".

Walter, I agree with you. You are who your enemies call you, and I, too, would be proud to be hated by the same people. Actually, I already am, they just don't know who I am!!!

As for the poster who thinks any of us care that the cowards are coming from McCain's campaign and somehow that should change our minds...not at all. People like us are individuals, not prone to kow-towing to groups, like the group inside the Republican party which is trying desperately to destroy her because they KNOW she WILL be back.

They can NOT get over the fact that she was more popular than McCain. And that scares them. That is why they have started this whisper gossip campaign like a bunch of high school girls. It is laughable.

Palin-Jindal '12 ( and I don't care which is President and which is VP)

No, my point wasn't intended to be any criticism or support of Palin. I was just pointing out that Walter went off on a "Lefty" rant which seems to have nothing to do with this situation.
