"It is the height of chutzpah, you betcha, for a coterie of ideologues to accuse Palin's critics of political snobbery. It is also somewhat sad for a movement once built on the power of ideas -- I am speaking now of neoconservatism -- to simply swoon for a pretty face and pheromone-powered charisma. But it is, I confess, just plain fun to see all these expense-account six-packers be so wrong. For some odd reason, most Americans are not finding, as Barnes wrote, that Palin "exudes a kind of middle-class magnetism." Instead they find her out of her depth and exuding an unfathomable -- not to mention unearned -- self-confidence. If it weren't for the Boys on the Boats, she'd be her biggest fan.

Lincoln Steffens was so blinded by ideology that he mistook an immense criminal enterprise for a benevolent government. The Boys on the Boats were similarly blinded. They mistook personal magnetism for presidential qualities while Palin, clear-eyed in a manner depicted in countless movies, undoubtedly saw in them just what she wanted: a way out of Alaska."

She is such an insult to intelligent Women, a Neanderthal dits, I laugh my ass off listening to people saying she is breaking from the McCain camp which is obvious but to set herself to run for President in 2012 I mean get real.
She never should have happened in the first place. This should be the end of Eva Braun Palin if they lose and good riddance!

Quite frankly, speaking as a man, to another man friend, looking at a picture of this woman, "She's a {expletive deleted} dog faced bitch."
