    She seems pretty fit to me.

    On a serious note; I doubt she will get the nod, but stranger things have happened. I mean we do have a non-resident as our current president right?

    Intellectually, unfit. She won't make it past the primaries. She will be a great talking head with her right-slanted rhetoric.

    I think it is wonderful that more females--including Mrs. Palin--are running for the office of President. Although, I do see gender politics in these battles that are going to take some time to work themselves out.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Intellectually unfit? Compared to the absolute disaster sitting in the WH right now she's a Rhodes Scholar. If the entertainment industry wasn't loaded with biased leftwing lunatics, they'd still be ridiculing obozo's many campaign gaffes. The perception you have that Sarah Palin is not intelligent is the result of manipulation, not the reality of the matter. I grow weary of the accusations she's stupid, while actual blithering idiots like obozo, biden, pilousy and frank say almost incoherent and asinine things everytime they're in front of a microphone. Yet the media that's not controlled by Rush Limbaugh completely ignore it.

    If anything she's not going to get the nomination because she's so polarizing, her politics are pretty extreme, and for the most part reflect what I want in a politician. Not what the republican establishment wants, and for damn sure not what the fascists running the democrook party want.

    She probably does oppose you on several issues of great importance to you, but if you consider that she would have little power to restrict your behavior if she actually governed according to the principles she promotes, you might decide that she's not a threat. Furthermore if she would return to free market economics, a sane energy plan, and reversed some of the liberal insanity I think we both dislike, it would benefit the entire country.

    Thumbs down

    This is obviously a troll thread designed to sow dissention, ignore the lefties and let it die.
    This site has been hijacked by leftists who attack opposition to further their own ends. Those who have never served this country and attack those who do are no longer worthy of my time or attention.

    You all do realize that you are performing for a troll? He has been banned already, but he is sitting back and laughing at you all who are performing so predictably for him.

    Best advice: Regardless of what you think of the OP's statement, just let this thread die and slide down the index. If you don't, you will be rewarding trolling and increasing the chance of future trolling.

    "Lefty," how did you reach that conclusion?

    *UPDATE*

    I stand self-corrected LOL...freaking anti-gun lefties! I have been trolled.:

    "Hold on, you can't even pay your way through this small amount of legal trouble? Was carrying a gun around like a cowboy really worth it in this instance? Where was your copy of the 2a when they cuffed you. LOL. How emasculating to have people cover your legal fees because you can't support yourself. "

    To steer back on topic for as long as this lasts, based upon the SP Alaska I saw the other day, she needs to sight in her own rifle, use a hard sided case, and be careful to not knock the scope off target. Good thing those caribou stand still a lot.

    Is it just me or does she seem clueless on a lot of things she says she's done het entire life?

    If you don't like her run yourself. See how you stand up under the slanderous attacks by press and politicians that she has had to endure. Compare your political record to hers and put your superior accomplishments up for public evaluation so she can fade back into the wilderness. She would probably appreciate the peace and quiet.

    Her recent hunting trip to "put food on the table" cost over $42,000 and she couldn't even load her own rifle.

    I think she will run 3rd party "Tea Party" I think its a good idea for America to accept a 3rd party into main stream. I still wont vote for her most likely.

    Of course.. This is only my opinion...

    However..

    I do respect her respect of our rights..

    On the other hand, my slightly psychotic cat has brains than she has.. I think she would be a pathetic example for "our first woman president" kind of deal.

    There are much better and much smarter women that would be MUCH better candidates than she will EVER be.

    That trip was a circus with clowns, er I mean commentators, guides, photographers etc. etc. etc.. Do you really think if she just went with her dad and husband and shot her own gun it would have been so silly.

    Around my "community" most of the women think she's a "ditz".

    If things in politics are going to change it's time to stop chasing the people who's only real talent is to gain public attention. We need some that have had some actual, real world, work experience, either building a business or managing one through everyday problems (like making a payroll for one). Instead we get those whose only experience is in "F----ing Up" things in a State Legislature, Congress, or Governor's Mansion.

    I'm waiting for someone with REAL leadership talent and true knowledge of what this country is all about. Not those who have a briefcase full of Political IOU's gathered over the years by "serving the party".

    Sarah Palin's talent is far too limited to put her in the Oval Office. She'd make a better campaigner for a REAL candidate.

    What was portrayed (and the estimated costs thereof) was just her dad and her husband. Her dad's scope being off wasn't the commentator's doing. The silly part of it was mainly the cost and then claiming "that's what it takes to put food on the table". The bulk of the cost was the private planes to the hunting area (estimated at some $38k). The rest of the cost was mainly her resort hunting lodge and vehicle rental for her party of three. Not the cost of the circus. The estimate I saw didn't even include processing costs. I guess they assumed she'd do the butchering herself. That was kind of them.

    The absolute silliest is portraying a novice at something to be "her way of life". Take her for what she is and let her sink or swim on that. Don't make her out to be something she's not so she can fail miserably at it. (I.e. she is not a subsistence hunter making ends met with Alaskan cost effecient hunting.)

    I hope not. I hope the Tea Party comes up with some more GOOD candidates. Right now, too many Tea Party candidates with no experience in politics (a good thing, IMHO) but with no demonstrated experience in anything else, either (not a good thing).

    Palin quit her last politics job. Actions speak louder than words.
