Well, she didn't have her gun with her...this "brave" woman who spouts inane, divisive drivel and thinks wildlife is just something to shoot for fun or profit. I couldn't watch the video well, but thanks Michelle.

Maybe if we all ignore her (media included) she'll go away. I doubt there is any chance of her evolving into an intelligent being. It is mind-boggling, disturbing, and depressing that she is taken seriously by anyone, and that she was selected to run for VP of the U.S.! How could that happen? Humanity is devolving. Maybe a Grizzly bear mama (or a moose mama, or a wolf pack) will put an end to this nightmare.

She can only talk when she gets paid, and the audience is hand picked...Her handlers whoever they are know they can't let her answer a question from a real reporter, because they know that she'd make an ass out of herself...So they control, the surroundings, and the questions...And even then, she still makes a fool out of herself...And what kind of so cllaed leader only releases statements, on Twitter? She only does that because she doesn't have to answer for her ridiculous, moronic statements, and twisted view on things...Politics, aside, as a Yuman Being, she fails miserably...

$arah is a LIAR. A DIVIDER. A QUITTER. A GOLD DIGGER. She doesn't care about the environment, animals, women's rights, the separation of church and state, gay rights, religious freedom, protecting the constitution...
She NEVER answers SERIOUS questions because she doesn't know ANYTHING.
I don't give a CRAP what 'party' she belongs to; the woman is an IDIOT.
She talks a lot and says nothing-it is all word salad; cutie little phrases-NO SOLUTIONS.
She is poor excuse for a human being; I hope she chokes on the money she is making while people and animals are suffering...

Actually she is brilliant! Although she has never held a job to full term, she has convinced conservatives that she is intelligent and moral. She is making millions giving pep rallies and offering no solutions but only sound bites. She has flipflopped on numerous issues but is not held accountable as she panders to our fears and anger. And she is laughing all the way to the bank.

Michelle J.,, Anyone with half a brain would be scared out of their mind at the thought of this woman coming anywhere near the white house . If your not scared then you are void of rational thought !
This is a woman who said she would go to war with Russia and any country who broke the rules according to Palin. When someone says something about her she doesn't like she takes names and gets even . Great role model for our country ,,NOT !
I wonder sense the Tea Bag candidates are all radicals who don't understand the first thing about government and how it works have any of these Teabaggers even thought for a second about how these candidates would perform at these jobs their running for when they have so little knowledge of anything other than church and family ?
Do you honestly think that is all it takes to be a Governor ,Representative, Senator ,Vice President or President in this country ?
My god at least chose people with the knowledge to hold these positions.
Look who you voted for in Delaware a woman who thinks masterbation should be banned ,lol. Get a grip PLEASE your not voting for church officials here your voting for candidates who will work in our government . What is wrong with you people have you lost your minds ?
Sarah Palin lost her run for Vice President because not only libs voted against her but also Independents and Republican's with brains knew she was not qualified and that she would do a horrible job if elected and tear this country apart .
Obama was elected because he was only intelligent but he had a law degree from Harvard , he had worked as a state Senator before becoming a Senator in Washington and he also taught Constitutional law . He was aware of how government works and was far more qualified than the president before him that most of you Teabaggers voted for too . I guess you seem to love dumb presidents ?
What does it take to convince you people that Palin has no knowledge at all when it comes to running a country.
She was a beauty queen who won the election for mayor purely on her looks and her ability to hoodwink people in the small town of Wasilla, Alaska . She is very savy however in knowing how to manipulate people for her benefit , give people checks from the oil industry that you allowed to rape Alaska and kill off wildlife and they will vote for you ,,that is how she became governor . Money talks ! It surely was not because she had the brains for the job ,a job I might add that she never finished .
If you don't have the knowledge to make important governmental decisions on your own then you would have to delegate all responsibility to someone who has that knowledge .So why vote for them in the first place vote for someone who already has that knowledge !
I wonder how many Teabaggers know that this folksy persona she puts on is all an act ,that the picture with her husband and that elk she claimed she killed was actually a photo op meant to make these people think she is just an average everday person just like them. The true story behind that picture is they were riding down the road saw this person had killed an elk and asked to take a picture with the elk . All the time you thought she was this strong fronteer woman who could survive in the wilderness with just a rifle and a baby on her hip . Fooled your butts didn't she ,lol. You Betcha ! How many woman running for office have you seen parading their children around at their rallys at all hours of the day and night ? None ! Palin did that purposely ,she used her special needs child ,her other children and her husband to gain her votes . How cold and calculating is that ? Sorry but a good mother would have kept her children out of the limelight and protected them from the media exposure . Sarah Palin is a power hungry woman with only one agenda and that is her own not the people in this country .

I think it is more because they lie about what she says all the time NE. I have never seen dogs go after someone the way they have her yet she holds her head up and keeps on trucking! Interesting that they are so dang afraid of her. Maybe because honesty and integrity is a trait in people the lame stream media fears? Far be it from we the people to demand that in politicians today.

One thing is for sure they have not stopped her. She keeps on keeping on. The lady has guts and is a true patriot!

As for you naysayers better start packing your bags. Just don't come to Canada eh!

Don't underestimate Sarah Palin. Yes, she is hyper-polarizing: she sends her fans into rapture and drives her detractors stark raving mad. But she can dominate the news cycle with a single tweet and generate three days of coverage with a single speech (as she did this past Friday in Iowa). Her name recognition is universal.

You are right to complain that she is not offering specific policy proposals and that her inaccessibility to media outlets other than the one that pays her — Fox News — puts her beyond the kind of scrutiny and accountability we have come to expect for our leaders. (See a TIME video of Sarah Palin and her supporters in Iowa.)

But the mistake you are making is to assume that Palin needs or wants to play by the standard rules of American politics. Or that it even occurs to her to do so. Trash her all you want (even you Republicans who are doing it all the time behind her back) for being uninformed, demagogic and incoherent, and brandish the poll numbers that show fewer and fewer Americans think she is qualified to be President. Strain to apply political and practical norms to Alaska's former governor. You are missing the point.

Surely you've come to accept the reality that as a businessperson, Palin is a genius. The gusher of revenue from her speeches, books and television deals sweeps away any doubt that she can brilliantly harness her energy, charisma and popularity into a moneymaking bonanza.(See pictures of Sarah Palin and the Tea Party.)

But what you need to appreciate is that the same dynamics of supply and demand that Palin has cleverly exploited for financial gain also make her inimitably formidable as a political force.

Take this weekend's Des Moines, Iowa, speech, for example. You all perceived it as a rambling nothingburger of a diatribe, with a convoluted, self-pitying screed about the media. And you considered the trip itself a missed opportunity, since Palin held no meetings with grass-roots activists and didn't lay a foundation for the kind of voter contact essential to compete in the Hawkeye State's caucuses. (See TIME's special "After Alaska: Sarah Palin's Year of Living Large.")

But ask yourself why Palin was in Iowa this of all weekends. Remember that she herself negotiated the date for the Iowa Republican Party's annual Ronald Reagan dinner. This allowed her to conveniently skip the Values Voter Summit simultaneously going on in Washington, where most of the other potential 2012 Republican candidates appeared. By choosing Iowa over Washington, Palin avoided having to compete head to head with her would-be rivals and dodged the event's concluding straw poll. Meanwhile, Palin got more weekend coverage than all the other prospects combined. Not everything she has done thus far has been obviously calculated, but her choices overall have been too savvy to be coincidence or luck.

The past 22 months have been replete with situations in which Palin has refused to adhere to the conventional playbook of presidential contenders and party honchos. That posture, along with — let's face it — her watchability, star quality and good looks, is what keeps her core supporters hanging on her every word. Her followers forgive her sloppy syntax and seemingly haphazard methodology — to them, this makes her accessible, relatable and real. The more she is attacked and belittled, the more they rally to her defense. And when she has laid hands on her chosen 2010 candidates, such as Nikki Haley and Christine O'Donnell, she is able to transfer that protective shell, shepherding them through the slings and arrows of "the politics of personal destruction" to victories against Establishment favorites. (See Joe Klein's Election Road Trip.)

Palin's strength also derives from the unwillingness of you Republicans to take her on or to call her out for her more detrimental candidate selections and statements. Her endorsements of Joe Miller in Alaska and O'Donnell in Delaware cost her party their two preferred Senate nominees and put those seats in jeopardy for the GOP. Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, the longtime Palin foe who lost the nomination fight to Miller, has just announced her decision to go rogue and launch a write-in campaign to retain her job, flouting Palin's judgment and mocking the efforts to intimidate her out of the race. (Comment on this story.)

But Murkowski is an exception. Most of you Republicans are afraid to challenge Palin publicly, in part because you recognize that she speaks to the mood and emotions of the Tea Party and other conservatives better than anyone else. Her anti-Washington barbs and taunting denigration of the President and his policies hit home and get out the vote. She is almost certainly going to be in a position to take a victory lap of sorts on Nov. 2.

Palin is operating on a different plane, hovering higher than a mere celebrity, more buoyant than an average politician. Some of you are too young, or too forgetful, to recall the breathless fusses over Donald Trump and Warren Beatty when they toyed with presidential bids, or how much oxygen Ross Perot sucked up when he ran in 1992. You may think Palin is full of hot air, but there is enough of it to power her from Alaska to the Republican nomination in 2012, and until she unambiguously takes herself out of the running, or until the nomination is definitively won by another, she will remain both a force and a force field.(See photos of Sarah Palin's life since the 2008 election.)

All of you are certain she can't win the presidency — and as of today you are right. But the nomination is another kettle of salmon, and she bears more in common with the past three presidential winners than with the passel of hopefuls clamoring for donations, press attention and straw votes. She is like Obama: the camera loves her and both sides of the political spectrum hang on her every word. She is like Bush: able to communicate with religious conservatives and Middle Americans. Most of all, she is like Bill Clinton: what doesn't kill Sarah Palin makes her stronger. So as the world gets ready for the midterm elections and for the start of the epic contest in which Republicans will pick their champion to go into battle against Barack Obama, be advised: Palin is very much alive and, despite what you think, extraordinarily strong.

EXCUSE me Northern, I have NEVER seen such vitriol against a candidate, or an elected president, as I have against Obama. (including your darling Sarah, whether she is receiving or giving it) As far as the rest of your diatribes, there is no point in going on. Some of us who LIVE here realize that things just aren't quite as simple as "drill baby drill" and de-regulating polluting corporations. Doing away with all "entitlements" will have elderly and disabled people dying in droves. In the meantime, we have will have more unwanted and suffering children in an over-populated world, and women dying from trying to prevent that.

From the first time that woman opened my mouth all I could think of is loud, brassy trailer trash. Sorry to insult the decent people who live in mobile homes, but you all know the type of person everyone calls trailer trash. She may have the money but she still has that personality. She lies in a flash, I used to work with mentally ill clients and there was one who did the same thing. She would spin the most insane story and then seemingly without thinking came out with something to prove what she just said. Sara Palin does this on a regular basis, perhaps what she should be doing is seeing a good psychiatrist. The problem is that people who think she is wonderful take whatever she says and does as truth and never take the time to investigate to see what the real story is.

One thing I still would love to have answered is who the father of this latest kid is. Why would she not produce any records and make sure they were not available. I would actually be very surprised if it were here husband. If this kid is legitimate and everything is on the up and up why keep it so private? She surely does not value the kids privacy since she constantly parades them in front of audiences to get sympathy for being a mother of all those kids.

I say she is no mother, a mother would be there for her children not traipsing all over the country feeding bullshit to her loyal followers. This is like a cult with those who have been brainwashed blindly following.

If this kid is legitimate and everything is on the up and up why keep it so private?"

I don't like it when birther stuff is thrown at Obama. This sounds the same to me.

Huge fan of Governor Sarah Palin
A View From The North
By Cam Vallee Monday, September 20, 2010

I am a huge fan of Governor Sarah Palin. Because my Province of British Columbia borders the great state of Alaska it was always interesting to follow the going’s on up above my head. She hit my radar about ten years ago and I celebrated her every success. The biggest question asked by the left wing is ‘just who does she think she is going to ‘take America back’” from as she often says? Who does she think she is? Here is this Canadians view:

Palin wants to put control of America back into the hands of the people where (according to your constitution) it should have always been. When you have elected officials mocking millions of people who are trying to tell them what they want and do not want and they ignore them - refuse to meet with them - call them names - shall I say “Houston, we have a problem!”

That is what took place and it is the central reason why millions of Americans are so angry at their elected reps. They did not listen to them in spite of the warning that
were sent and will indeed pay a price for their ignorance as they should. These people are Republicans, Independants and even Democrats. These people have put their party banners down and united for a cause that can be no greater for any mortal man. The future of their own country.

Many try and make this an “Obama problem” but it is a festering American and world political problem that has been brewing for at least twenty years. It is about progressive ideology which is socialism and again, socialism is not a dirty word. It is simply a system of governing that has been tried and has failed over and over again. It makes people dependants on the government and robs them of individual freedoms and individuality. Many try and label it a race problem but America has moved beyond that stop sign of ignorance. Are there still racists? You bet ON BOTH SIDES OF YOUR POLITICAL FENCE.

But not rampant among the regular every day American who has been rising up and reiterating those famous words “We are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore.” They are demanding honesty and fiscal responsibility from their government which is a good thing. They want hand ups to take precedent over hand outs in our daily lives. They want to keep their individual freedoms and that is something I predict they will not give up without a fight as they should.

The elite have taken control of all of our countries and just because some of them have a diploma from the likes of Harvard does not make them smart. I say all the time even the Scarecrow went to Oz where the Wizard gave him a piece of paper saying he had a brain. It did not mean he really had one and it certainly did not mean he was smart. What it may have meant was he had a good ability to read the words other people wrote for him. In my opinion life experience is worth far more and we need to knock our elites off the pedestals we have had them on. Common sense is a great ability that enables those of us who decide to use it great decision makers. Honesty and integrity are not things we are taught but things we either have or do not have. Life experience is often our best lessons.

Our choice as citizens is to become part of those seeking a solution or stay with the status quo. People in America have made the choice and are going after the elite who have driven our countries almost to their knees.

They are a controlled voice in America and it is one that is starting to resound around the world that real change will only come in our governments if we the people stand up and demand it happen. These people are moms and dads, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, grandma and grandpas. These people are us.

This Canadian is relying on their drive and will to lead the way back to sanity in all of our countries. I am viewing what is happening in America from my side of the fence and I like what I see.

Our choice is to become part of those seeking a solution or stay with the status quo. One thing is for sure either way everyday Americans are coming after the elite who has driven your country almost to it knees. Like a train they are heading to Washington state by state and those who do not want to support real change had better get the hell outta their way!

Sorry I do not like Palin. She may share views of previous presidents, but that does not make her presidential material. She has no empathy for our Earth. Just money and power.

Well NE, that is one of the main things Tea Party folks are talking about doing away with; "entitlements". At the same time they are screaming about "don't touch my Medicare" or Social Security. As far as women dying, if you look into the not too distant past, women tried to prevent unwanted pregnancies by finding doctors who performed abortions in dirty backrooms, or they tried doing it themselves with a coat-hanger or other fatal means.They often died of infections or bleeding to death. Abortion is not a pretty thing, but neither are unwanted suffering children, or women dying because they try to prevent a pregnancy early on their own. There is a reason why Roe Vs Wad became law, and it's NOT because anybody thinks abortion should be used as "birth control". From what I have heard from Palin and her clones, they want to take women back to the time of no control over their own bodies. This seems to include "abstinence only" preaching, as opposed to birth control measures if, HEAVEN FORBID, a teenager had sex. So, I hope I answered your question about women dying. I want to see these women who oppose abortion so strongly (even in rape cases), step up and offer to adopt all the unwanted and abused children I hear about so often.

If anyone wants to let Sarah Palin show everyone how ill suited she is to lead any part of our country, just put her in a room with Bill Clinton and an interviewer and let her & Bill talk and each give his/her opinion on unscripted interview questions ( like the interview Bill just did for "youtube" and his CGI organization.) She would show how ignorant she is very quickly when she hasn't been provided with answers.

You have obviously NOT been paying attention to the Reps the Tea Party is supporting. All are saying that in order for America to survive people will have to make real sacrifices. EVERYTHING is on the table. Absolutely everything so u can take the 'hands off my medicare" propaganda. It is nothing more than mere left wing talking points and it is old.

Over time, extensive negative information, will surface about Ms. Palin and the other Tea Partiers, for that matter. She's making a lot of money, now, and should grab it, while she can. Trust me, I'm not suggesting that she deserves a penny, but her devoted disciples, don't know a con artist, when they see one.

She is a passing fancy, as is the Tea Party and, I, for one, will be glad to hear from her, NO MORE. Lunatics, we don't need; there are enough of them, already.

Yep she is a hunter and they eat what they kill in Alaska Leanne. Her husband and her run a family fishing business as do thousands of Americans. She does support responsible drilling for oil and gas but nope, it was the Dems who brought in the aerial wolf kill in Alaska and then tried to blame her for it. FACTS and TRUTH please not propaganda and lies. Aren't u Americans tired of that kind of crap?

Just a few thoughts regarding Palin. As woman, I have say she is not a typical American woman, mother, or anything else. She's a female who's power hungry, money hungry and a darn good plotical twister of facts. And for those who find her, (beyond her cutsies good looks), a good role model for woman, I say WHAT!? She, Palin, is nothing more than a grasping, power hunting female who will do what ever she has to to get what she wants, the only difference between her and the Washingto politicians, is her looks. Other than the looks, she is just like all the legislators she condemns, and she will do whatever it takes, including lying, manipulation, misrepresentation whatever it takes.
Just for the record, I'd like to say, will someone please tell her to stop the phony winks, it messes up her mouth when she winks, and looks awful. Now this is a strictly a personal observation. I remember the saying my grandmother used to say, remember, if your face were frozen that pose, youd have to live with the rest of your life. Well that smile in the video fits the bill, I'd say.

BTW the Palins are not quite the typical hunters they are made out to be with. Do your homework on the Palins and from both sides of the fence too, not just the one that glorifies her with almost abject adoring. See the real Palin, before you put her up on that frail stage.

Sacrifices? The CBO proved conclusively while George Bush was still President that 48% of the deficit is due to the Bush tax cuts. The deficit can be reduced by 30% overnight by letting the tax cuts for those making over $250,000 expire. Even so, that group would still get the maximum benefit of the tax cuts for those making less because the first $250,000 would be taxed at the lower rate. The current tax rate in the highest bracket is less than a third of what it was in the 1950s, boom times for the US. The CBO also proved that increases in all discretionary and entitlement spending only accounts for 15% of the deficit.

Mecicare and Medicaid have been doing the heavy lifting for private insurers for decades, insuring those the private insurers wouldn't dream of insuring. With no Medicare, how likely is it that a 70 year old with diabetes and hypertension would be able to afford private insurance? The astronomical cost of healthcare for the uninsured is a major component of the most expensive healthcare in the world, twice as much as the average of the rest of the industrialized world and 70% more expensive than the next most expensive nation. Now you want to throw tens of millions of uninsured seniors into the mix, seniors who would be one hospitalization away from homelessness?

"Yep she is a hunter and they eat what they kill in Alaska Leanne."

Really? Wonder what wolf stew tastes like.

"She does support responsible drilling for oil and gas...."

So selling out the ANWR to greedmeisters is 'responsible. Thought it was us Irish who had the gift for fairytales.

"....but nope, it was the Dems who brought in the aerial wolf kill in Alaska and then tried to blame her for it."

Oh come on Northern put this jaded old canard to bed. Who cares WHO introduced the aerial wolf MURDER, the FACT remains that not only did she not repeal it, which as governor she had the power to do, but she both CONDONES and SUPPORTS it.

"FACTS and TRUTH please not propaganda and lies. Aren't u Americans tired of that kind of crap?"

I'm not an American and I get my FACTS and TRUTH from conservation groups. If I want propaganda and lies I'll tune in to Tea Party websites.

One says:
***Well NE, that is one of the main things Tea Party folks are talking about doing away with; "entitlements". At the same time they are screaming about "don't touch my Medicare" or Social Security.***

NE responds with:
"You could not be more wrong. I see you are buying the lies. I can't have a real deabte with someone who doesn't have the facts. Have a nice day."

Whoever "you" is here, don't feel slighted if NE has dismissed you. IMO, NE would rather stay stuck in the lies or facts he/she has been fed, than be open to discourse with you and what he/she thinks are the lies and facts you've been fed.

My advice (which nobuddy asked for)? DO have a nice day, "you", knowing you no longer need to waste time with someone closed to "discourse".

(Seems everybuddy wins ... except when ONE summarily ends open discourse, that ONE is the actual loser.)

"You could not be more wrong. I see you are buying the lies. I can't have a real deabte with someone who doesn't have the facts. Have a nice day." I hope I AM wrong. My comment about entitlements was based on listening to the candidates themselves speak, and speakers at Tea Party rallies, because yes Northern, I AM paying attention to the Reps the Tea Party is supporting. We can't have a "real deabte" anyway NE, I suspect, so you "have a nice day" too now, you hear?
(Thanks Mary Grace. I don't feel slighted about being "dismissed" by NE though; heavens no)

NE you and people like you are what is wrong with this whole Tea party movement because none of you seem to understand the agenda of the candidates your backing. Rand Paul for instance wrote an article and in it he told his followers and anyone who would listen who lost their jobs not to take unemployment and be dead beats expecting government to support them . He said take any job ,work at McDonalds and take a second job if you have to so government can clear up its debt . First of all George Bush put this country into debt ,not Obama ,Bush gave tax breaks to his wealthy cronies so let them help clear up the debt and pay their fair share of taxes for a change .
Here were people in this blog saying there were no jobs to take where they lived and some had even lost their homes and had families to feed and these heartless Republican's were insulting and cruel in their comments calling these people lazy dead beats and some other horrible names. There is no empathy in the Republican party I can tell you that much and these Tea Party Candidates are Libertarians another word for lunitic fringe Republican's !
Now to make my point that Patricia C. is entirely right in what she said these candidates stand for and what would happen to the elderly,disabled and poor if they had their way and ended all entitlements all you have to do is go to Ron Pauls site and read what his agenda for government would look like and his son Rand ,"A Tea Party candidate," has the same agenda . On second thought don't just read it ,,use your mind and study it ,think about the implications of his agenda . Ron Paul is for ending Social Security and all social programs, decreasing government and removing all regulations on Corporations . I know this because I was at one time considering voting for Ron Paul after he outed Bush for wanting to join The North American Trade Union with Mexico and Canada making us all one nation ,opening the borders and doing away with the dollar and have a new currency for all three countries I believe it was the Amero ,"but I could be wrong at the name .
I degress ,,so I went to read up on Ron Paul to find out more about him and just what he stood for and low and behold I found out he wanted to degress back to the days before the New Deal when there was no welfare ,social security ,Medicare or any social programs that helped the sick elderly and poor . His son Rand and others say neighbors would help neighbors and churches would help those in need ,lol. If they didn't help back then ,"which is why these programs were started in the first place,"what makes him and his followers think it would work today when neighbors don't even talk to each other let alone help each other and their is hardly a family unit any more ,churches turn people away every day or refer them to the Salvation Army ,"trust me I know, been there done that ,". The cost of living was low back then and still people were hurting and needed help and now here we are with a high cost of living so yes people would become homesless ,starving and dying if these candidates you support have their way and turn back the clock and do away with these programs as they want to . Are you that foolish that you would vote for anyone before reading up on their agenda if elected ?

Now as for you Northern,,, I am sorry you think with your other head obviously because you have this infatuation with Palin and her looks and her ability to con people and make money from it but if you want to change a government for the worse I suggest you do that in your own country and leave ours alone !
My fathers side of the family are from Canada and I know there are people there who are not as foolish as you are and see Palin as a threat to any government should she ever be president because she is a radical whose ideas are not good for any country.
Palin will not talk to people of intelligence who would ask her questions she knows she could not answer ,which is why she did that u turn in this video . She could not state policies and explain to anyone how they would work because she herself doesn't know . She just spits out complaints about our government but she has no real answers to anything .All she is doing is echoing your displeasures with our government at her rally's ,she is not a problem solver she is part of the problem and has no solutions .
Tell me what she stands for and how she plans on accomplishing her agenda ? Do you even know ? No you don't because all she does is feed into your anger with government . It's all talk and makes no sense. Unless you think someone agreeing with you and fueling your fire makes sense ? This cutesy act is just that ,,all an act and in some ways Northern you have even pointed that out in your rant.

To NE L.: It's becoming increasingly clear, that their is some education in your background. That leads me to this question. Is it possible, that you are being antagonistic, just to promote controversy?

Whether we agree or disagree politically, is not the point. There are many educated and informed conservatives, with whom you could give your support. Why would you want to be a disciple of the lunatic fringe, who have very little education in history and/or politics? The Tea Party will soon become a movement of the past, for obvious reasons; the Republican Party will see to that.

Thank you Rosemary and Patti for the stars and you comments ,but I am intelligent enough to know that I don't know enough to run for any office in government unlike Palin who hasn't seemed to have figured that out yet.
