Sarah Palin is shrewd. She got rich off this stuff. She's shown a kind of street smart mob boss mentality most of her life. Only morons like HS that think politics matter can't understand.

Vote for Newt to annoy the liberals is just as bankrupt as vote for Romney because he is "electable".

I remember the bumper stickers in 1992: "Annoy the Media, Vote for Bush" -- but that didn't turn out to be a winning strategy for the Bush campaign.

Haha. So the leftist media is no longer picking on Sara! Looks like the liberals were ahead of everyone after all. Will these idiots ever recant their absurd media bias conspiracy now?

A President Gingrich (if elected) would indeed annoy liberals. They'd hate his guts and spew venom at him.

Just like they did with George W Bush and Richard Nixon, two other hate figures for the left who were exceedingly liberal in terms of policy.

Conservatives would be in the same place they were under Bush - forced to defend a supposedly conservative President who was in fact indifferent or even hostile towards conservatism.

You can see the problem right there: "If even a crazy hard-core right-winger like Newt Gingrich supports cap-and-trade, amnesty, etc, then what does that say about how extreme those Rethuglicans who oppose these things are?"

Gingrich is perceived (wrongly) to be very conservative. That would give him a lot of freedom to indulge his liberal instincts. Romney is perceived (with some justice) to not be very conservative. That would force him to try to prove how right wing he is if elected.

The truly sad thing is that relatively speaking she was the best educated, most intelligent and best qualified of the four people running.

Relatively speaking.

Dear Half Sigma, you are wrong regarding Obama's intelligence and education. He is a prime example of affirmative action run amok. And he has spent his entire life bouncing from one Marxist re-education camp after another, with the result that he is so mal-educated as to be actually delusional. So, while I think you are generally right about Palin, Obama is much worse. And the last three years proves it.

It's not hard to make money off idiotic prole Republicans. Fox News, talk radio, The GOP establishment, already figured that out years ago. The Republican book and speaking circuit is extremely lucrative. Everyone likens themselves to messiah Reagan so they can cash in. Scamming proles is an art form.

Here is my prediction, Mitt Romney will go down as bad as McCain/Palin did - at least roughly the same. The problem is these moderate dorks that obviously cannot win at the top of the ticket. Of course, Newt is no good. Not sure if GOP will ever win presidency again - all politics has a strong racial component and Whites have been outsmarted.

>"The problem is these moderate dorks that obviously cannot win at the top of the ticket."


Bush won twice in spite of being more moderate than Romney.

(More moderate in reality, that is. It's possible that a lot of people believed him to be much more conservative than he actually was, based on his Texas drawl.)

LOL - well yes I will. Although, I would be tempted to come back under a different name, since I've always found cowardice and subterfuge to be good allies. Honestly, I think no matter who the GOP puts up they will lose; I think we may have crossed the Rubicon racially in this country sooner than I thought – but we’ll see. If I’m wrong, that’s a good thing,

"By the way, Senator Christine O'Donnell and Senator Sharron Angle say hi !"

To whatever dolt said this, I have three replies: Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul. I am very glad that Specter and Crist are not sitting Senators.

The Florida race has become a replay of Crist vs. Rubio. The only difference is that this time, the real conservative will lose.

Sarah Palin is so ghetto.

>"The Florida race has become a replay of Crist vs. Rubio. The only difference is that this time, the real conservative will lose"

And who, pray tell, is the "real conservative" in the Florida race? If you say "Gingrich" then you need to do a little more research.

Sarah Palin's problem isn't just that she's annoying and neither especially intelligent nor well-informed. It's that in the end she's never really presented us with an anti-establishment version of Republicanism that her would-be followers can get behind. She's a poor woman's version of Rush Limbaugh. She doesn't diverge from the party line in any meaningful way.

Plenty of whitefolks are firmly attached to the gubment tit. It is true that brownfolks gorge on and grab ahold of the fattest udders, but our current system wouldn't exist if whites didn't love them some gubment chee, too.

Repubes can win elections nationally, but they will only do so by competing with the Dems, as they did in the last election cycle, on who can roll home the largest and most fragrant wheel of gubment chee.

Did anyone notice that our glorious leaders ran up another trillion-dollar deficit last year, mostly to pay people not to work? We're very close to an utterly unrepayable level of debt, a la Greece. But we're not Greece; we're the largest economy on Earth, and no one can bail us out. Buy food, buy water, and move the hell out of big-city areas. Now.

PS: All the libs I know are champing at the bit for a Newt nomination: they think Obama will piledrive him with ease.

Yeah, Obama would beat Gingrich.

Romney will probably beat Obama.

I'm a far-right Christian and to be honest Palin, Beck and others are too liberal. I never understood why the MSM called them "ultra-conservative, religious right" when one could see their act a mile away. They're hardly genuinly religious and they're hardly conservative. Palin just wanted attention and to get rich (and yeah she's filthy rich now thanks to her books, press and Reality TV show!). In fact I dislike Republicans in general for their capitalist, profit follow the money mentality as much as I dislike the degenerate cultural mentality of the Democrats. Good ridance all of them.
