The name on her black memorial bracelet

You know, you've put me in an ackward position. I really hate to have to defend Sarah Palin in any way. But the bracelet wasn't black, it was bronze and was specifically built for families of deployed soldiers.


The problem is, it looks like it's not a black bracelet at all. The owner of HeroBracelets.org wrote a post on his site bragging about Sarah Palin wearing the "Deployment Bracelet" he gave her, which is bronze, not black. Looking at the close-up of Palin's hand from the Tea Party convention, it seems entirely plausible that her bracelet is indeed a dark bronze or copper, which was mistaken for black in the light.

Everyone can whine or cheer about Palin. But the real truth is that the more people talk about her the more money she makes.

Washington (CNN) - As Sarah Palin marks her birthday, a new national poll indicates that 7 out of 10 Americans feel that she is not qualified to be president.

According to an ABC News/Washington Post survey, 71 percent of the public say the former Alaska governor is not qualified to serve in the White House, with 26 percent saying the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee is qualified to be president. The 26 percent who say Palin is qualified is down 12 points from an ABC News/Washington Post poll from November.

Twenty-eight percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey from November indicated that Palin was qualified, with 7 in 10 feeling she was not qualified to be president.

The ABC News/Washington Post poll, released Thursday morning as Palin marks her 46th birthday, also indicates that even a majority of Republicans now view Palin as not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief. According to the survey, 45 percent of conservatives see her as qualified, down 21 points from last November.

The survey also indicates that 37 percent of Americans have a favorable view of her, with 55 percent holding an unfavorable view. According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey from last month, 43 percent of the public had a favorable opinion and 46 percent had an unfavorable view of Palin.

Seems the more people see of her, the less they think she's a viable candidate.

Well, happy birthday Sarah !

What I do find interesting is the FACT that the liberals are so damn scared of this woman.


Speaking only for myself I am not "scared" its amusing to me to watch the train wreck that is sarah palin.
1. "As Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It's Alaska. It's just right over the border." --Sarah Palin, explaining why Alaska's proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience, interview with CBS's Katie Couric, Sept. 24, 2008 (Watch video clip)

2. "The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil." –-Sarah Palin, in a message posted on Facebook about Obama's health care plan, Aug. 7, 2009

3. "All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years." --Sarah Palin, unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008 (Watch video clip)

4. "Well, let's see. There's ? of course in the great history of America there have been rulings that there's never going to be absolute consensus by every American, and there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So, you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but ?" --Sarah Palin, unable to name a Supreme Court decision she disagreed with other than Roe vs. Wade, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008 (Watch video clip)

5. "We believe that the best of America is not all in Washington, D.C. ... We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation." --Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in Greensoboro, N.C., Oct. 16, 2008

6. "[T]hey're in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom." --Sarah Palin, getting the vice president's constitutional role wrong after being asked by a third grader what the vice president does, interview with NBC affiliate KUSA in Colorado, Oct. 21, 2008 (Watch video clip)

7. "They are kooks, so I agree with Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh was using satire ... I didn't hear Rush Limbaugh calling a group of people whom he did not agree with 'f-ing retards,' and we did know that Rahm Emanuel, as has been reported, did say that. There is a big difference there." –Sarah Palin, attempting to rationalize why it's okay for Limbaugh to use the word "retards" but not Emanuel, FOX News Sunday interview, Feb. 7, 2010

8. "Who calls a shot like that? Who makes a decision like that? It's a disturbing trend." –Sarah Palin, pushing a conspiracy theory that "In God We Trust" had been moved to the edge of coins by the Obama administration (the change was made by the Bush administration in 2007 and was later reversed by Congress, before Obama took office), West Allis, Wisconsin, Nov. 6, 2009

9. "Ohh, good, thank you, yes." --Sarah Palin, after a notorious Canadian prank caller complimented her on the documentary about her life, Hustler's "Nailin Paylin," Nov. 1, 2008 (Read more about the prank call, watch the video and see the transcript)

10. "I think on a national level your Department of Law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we've been charged with and automatically throw them out." --Sarah Palin, referring to a department that does not exist while attempting to explain why as president she wouldn't be subjected to the same ethics investigations that compelled her to resign as governor of Alaska, ABC News interview, July 7, 2009


12. [Sarah Palin] represents a fatal cancer to the Republican party." ?conservative columnist David Brooks


My I don't know if you're going to use the word 'terrorist' there." --Sarah Palin, asked if people who bomb abortion clinics are terrorists, NBC News interview, Oct. 23, 2008

"Perhaps so." --Sarah Palin, when asked if we may need to go to war with Russia because of the Georgia crisis, ABC News interview, Sept. 11, 2008

Isn't that a great idea to start a war with nuclear armed Russia?Please this women is a loony If I was a conservative I would be embarrassed to have this lady as my spokesperson.
And let's not forget the "grassroot's" tea party convention where it cost $560 dollars a ticket.And the 100,000 dollar speaking fee while it is fine to make money in this country I thought it was all about the people you know especially the ones who couldn't afford a ticket?Hypocrisy at its finest.

The decision has to be made this year about whether to run for the Republican nomination. It's a long process. That's one of the reasons an obscure Governor from Arkansas won the Democratic nomination in 92 - in 90 Bush 1 was very popular and the heavyweights in the party decided to sit out.

So Palin is clearly going for the nomination, and she might not have an opponent much more qualified than she is. Obviously any opponent is more qualified - if you can spell President, you're more qualified - but Palin might just get the nomination.

Because left leaning Paul has taken a stand against the occupation of Iraq and the U.S. war on terror.


Gee I thought America didn't occupy countries silly me.Oh wait Korea,Germany,japan.
Hitler's dead we won people Time to come home.


He voted against last year's war funding bill, supports repeal of the USA PATRIOT Act and opposes an attack on Iran.


I thought conservatives were always railing against big government interfering in there lives tapping phones isn't an invasion of privacy? It is always about the Constitution or so say some of the conservatives but only it seems when it fits there ideology.It is usually prudent to consider other options then rushing in and attacking any country.Guns blazing and yelling yeehaa and mission accomplished doesn't cut it.
But what do you expect from the extreme right wing conservatives When Palin is ready to go to war with Russia during the Georgia crisis.Let's face it during the cold war most sane people knew if the U.S. and Russia launched it was game over for the world,But apparently not palin.

I love how the NeoCons/Religious Right, paint anyone with a differing opinion as left leaning.
Ron Paul is right-wing, no matter how you look at it. Libertanians are right-wing.
I also love how they claim Justice Kennedy is left as well, even though he has voted with the right-wing justices on almost every case.
The GOP is going to continue losing ground on the dems, because they refuse to listen to anyone who does not pull the party line, or doesn't look at democracy as an "us vs them" mentallity.
How can your government ever function, when one side simply says "no" to everything the other side proposes.
The GOP is now saying no to policies they came up with, simply because now the dems support those policies.

Sounds like a true conservative to me. Republican or not he's got my vote.

gains composure* Sugar, anyone with different world views than the religious right or Neocons, as you put it, is what we consider "left".
EX:
Religious right--center---------------------------------------------------left
IMO

Then you have zero understanding of what political leanings actually are.
Libertarians are right wing. This is the belief throughout the world including right wing America, but maybe not in psychotically right wing Texas
But what is funny, is that by international standards the democrats are right of centre, and not left, or anywhere near socialist.


I find it crazy that someone could actually believe only NeoCons and the religious right are right wing and everything else is left. This shows a small mind, without the ability to view any subject that challenges ones beliefs. Please expand where you get your information from.
FoxNews and Rush Limbaugh are not only biased, they are outright propoganda. They have little interest in reporting facts, they are much more interested in swaying opinion.
Myself, I try to get my information from as many sources as possible, including right wing sources. I never take anyones word for it, and I always ask the simple questions "Why did this source choose to report the story?" and "Who gains an advantage by the story being reported?"
And I also take classes on the subjects and read textbooks.
