New Palin Statistics...Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
...for those of you (you know who you are) who LOVE to post poll numbers:


Jan 29, 2010 - Huffington Post

Alaskans continue to sour on Sarah Palin, according to a new poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling.

Forty-five percent of Alaskans surveyed have an unfavorable opinion of their former governor, while 47 percent had a favorable view and 7 percent were unsure. Seventy-four percent of Democrats have an unfavorable opinion of her, as do 55 percent of Independents and 15 percent of Republicans.

Palin's popularity in the Final Frontier has continually slumped since her early departure from office and before, amid sentiment that she wasn't looking out for the best interests of Alaska.

The results of the automated phone survey of 710 Alaska voters comes after her lengthy book tour and contract as a Fox News analyst...


Yeah, yeah--it's from Huffington. Get over it.

OH NO!!! With numbers like that ... she'll never make it to the 2012 presidential ticket and I was really looking forward to seeing her on that ticket.

Well shucks!!!


Well ... it'll be interesting to see what the "poll" people come up with.

Maybe there's still hope that she'll make it to the ticket!!!

What IS the fascination with posting polls?
I hope Palin does make it to the 2012 ticket--Maybe she and Michael Steele could team up? Who'd be on top, d'ya think?

I was hoping for a palin bachmann ticket sigh.


You...and every other red-blooded heterosexual man in America--regardless of political affiliation.

I think she's finished, actually.
FOX (not the) NEWS will be the end of any real credibility she might have.

You know, for a party that is supposedly on "life support" and "not in touch with the majority of the people" the leftys sure do seem concerned about people from that party. Especially those who have left politics altogether. Now that is hilarious. I think the Republicans should go check the polls of those defeated recently by "the party on life support" and see what their numbers look like. And be sure to use an unbiased source like Huffpo.

By the way, you don't suppose some Alaskans are a bit miffed because she resigned do you? Nah, couldn't be.........



Palin's gone---out of the political picture--now who should get over it?

If Palin remains in the news, then she's fair game.
And, anyone who thinks that Palin has left politics 'for good' is incredibly naive.

Finished, as in being a viable political candidate.
I think we're going to be seeing her on FOX, and it won't surprise me to see her in the capacity of 'advisor' during the next presidential campaign.

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

Personally, I'm so damned proud of her that I think she should run for president.

That's right ... no more "2nd seat" for her ... she should run for president.

More amused. She never disappoints that way. Like this for example.


Our U.S. Constitutional rights. Our rights that you sir [PALIN ADDRESSES MALE VETERAN IN AUDIENCE] fought and were willing to die for to protect in our Constitution. The rights that my son, as an infantryman in the United States army is willing to die for.



And to win that war, we need a commander-in-chief, not a PROFESSOR OF LAW STANDING AT THE LECTURN!


Yup, we definitely don't need no stinkin' constitutional law professor messing up our fight for the Constitution. You betcha!

Closer inspection of a photo of Sarah Palin, during a speech in which she mocked President Obama for his use of a teleprompter, reveals several notes written on her left hand. The words "Energy", "Tax" and "Lift American Spirits" are clearly visible. There's also what appears to read as "Budget cuts" with the word Budget crossed out.


I suspected as much when she suddenly started discussing admission to Chuck E Cheese.

Rahm on SNL answers Palin

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/02/07/snl-takes-on-rahm-emanuel_n_452596.html

OMG ... that is just hilarious and it's the way Rahm should have truly treated it.

The best thing for our nation would be for that poor excuse to just fade away, but then we wouldn't be able to see her run for President in 2012 ... sigh.

PALIN in 2012 ...

I mean really ... who would voluntarily want to miss that circus (complete with clowns and all) ...

If she runs,, she probably would win.. I mean, if she's got the support of all those mothers that take their little kids to the middle of a very OBNOXIOUS and yelling crowd... the support of all the males she winks on the cameras to... The support of all the teenagers/soon to be voters that think is OK to have unprotected sex and get an early pregnancy..the support of those who think she is "conservative enough" ... the support of those who think she is liberal enough.. the support of those who favors religion.... and according to HER book the support of those who don't favor religion..AND the support of those who think that she is "cute enough" to be president... All she needs to do is to have a nude calendar out!!... I guess is true that sex sells...OHH.. uhhh.. and I almost forgot... THE SUPPORT OF THOSE WHO ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO VOTE FOR HER WITH OUT ACTUALLY KNOWING WHAT SHE STANDS FOR... Because one thing is to talk about the issues, and a whole different game is to actually OFFER SOLUTIONS AND IMPLEMENT THEM... And We have many examples around...

This woman is not only a babbling idiot, she is also an incredible hypocrite. How can anyone believe she is suited to hold the highest office in the world.
Let's just look at the past week.

During her Tea Party Convention speech, she uttered the following:
"...and it’s a lot bigger than any charismatic guy with a teleprompter,”
Here she attempts to belittle the president, for using teleprompters for reading speeches, while she herself was reading a prepared speech from a lecturn mounted teleprompter.

And let's not forget her dishonest approach to offensive language.
Last week in a closed meeting, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, used the term "f@#$%ing ret@#$ed" to describe a democrat plan.
Sarah Palin immediately called for his resignation, asking if he is capable of decency, and of coarse made claims that the presidents apparent silence on a non-issue to be an endorsement of attacking the mentally disabled.
Then in response to the issue, Rush Limbaugh made the following comment:
"But our politically correct society is acting like some giant insult’s taken place by calling a bunch of people who are “retards,” “retards.” I mean these people, these liberal activists are kooks."
"So now there’s going to be a meeting, there’s going to be a “Retard” Summit at the White House, much like the Beer Summit between Obama and Gates and that cop in Cambridge."
And Sarah Palin answered back:
"[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 has been reported, did say that. there is a big difference there."
I don't know, the only difference I really see, is that Rahm Emanuel made the comment in a closed door meeting, and Rush made the comment to millions of people.
I don't think either was correct to make the comment, but it is nowhere near the offensiveness that the n-word is according to Palin (unless someone on the right uses the word).

I just don't understand how a sizeable portion of the American population believes she is qualified to be president.
This woman promotes a message that running a government is a simple and predictable endevour, that can somehow be easily and predictably managed, if only the government would cut taxes, drill for oil , and live by the Christian right wing dogma.
But running a country, and one as massive as the U.S., is not a simple and can only somewhat be predicted of its future. It's not siply giving orders of some ideology, and results will be automatic. Sarah Palin does not understand this simple fact, and has absolutely none of the knowledge or intelligence to actually manage that fact.
This woman can't string three coherent sentences without the use of prepared notes, a teleprompter, or juvenile writtings on her hand.
She went to several colleges, to get a single degree in Communications with a minor in Journalism, and she can't handle the softest of softball interviews. Even Glen Beck had to press her to answer a simple question about her favourite founding father. I don't understand why people give her a pass on the magazine question, but come on, she is a freaking politician and needed three tries to come up with George Washington.

I could also go on about her amazine dishonesty, her three teeth heavy of a Jerry Springer episode family, or her apparent property tax evasion. But instead I will answer a question righties love to ask about the Palin popularity.
"Why are left wingers so obsessed with Sarah Palin"
Now I can't answer for everyone on the left, and obsessed is a bit of an exageration, but I'll tell you why I have followed the train wreck of Sarah Palin.
I can't really stand to watch her speak, I find her creative use of the english language, her empty ideas, and her unbelievable arrogance intollerable. But what I really find amazing (even after watching GW Bush elected twice, sort of), is that plenty of Americans watch her rhetoric and somehow think she should be running the worlds largest economy. I just really don't understand how people keep going to her for salvation after 15 months of disasters in everything she does. She plays into people's worst fears, and promises thinks no one can ever deliver, and around 20% of the population buys into it.
I am simply amazed that "Idiocricy" is looking like a good prediction of the future, when someone with such a low level of intellectual curiosity, as Palin is, could possibly be a contender for the office of the president.

But I really hope she does run in the 2012 election. I don't think she can actually win the republican primary, but her simply running should cause enough adamosity within the party, that Obama should get an easy re-election. And if somehow the 20% of the crazies, who think she is a viable candidate, help her win the primary, I still have faith that at least 51% of the American population can see her for what she really is; a poorly conceived gimick.

I also hope she runs in 2012. If the other republican candidates don't shred her in the primaries, and she happens to end up being their nominee, she will get a rough ride. Those who support her and complain that she is getting abused a bit much are up for a rude awakening.

Once she becomes a presidential candidate her record as the Alaska governor will be fair game, and most important of all will be all the events that led to her resignation as the governor of Alaska. I am sure that all the tabloids and some talk shows will resurrect the fools play that she put on about her daughter's pregnancy, and the false charade about her planned wedding at the time she was running as McCain VP candidate.

If she wants to run she better be ready for that, in top of all her other shortcomings related to her lack of knowledge and her scarce intellectual abilities.

Palin's mission---Take the tea party movement away from it's libertarianism roots and bring it's elements to the GOP and the NeoCons.

I did not vote for McCain/Palin in 2008 (Voted for Chuck Baldwin) and probably would not vote for a Palin/? in 2012. She needs to stop being a hypocrite and call out people like Rush for his use of the "R" word.

^^How do you know that their wedding was false? Do you have the facts to support this claim? Or is that just a hunch?

Who cares if it's fact or hunch? Fact is ... there was no wedding.

Fact is that if that is the case (with the wedding which I too suspected all along) ... it's sure not the first inconsistency we see with Ms. Ignoramous, and the "retarded" inconsistencies will not stop with Rahm Emanual either. Among other things ... the woman is apparently only incensed about specific people using the "retarded" word as well. She's two-faced about it. According to her grandson's father, the woman uses that word at home. "Gush Pfleghmball" is allowed to use the word, but Democrats aren't? What the hell is that all about?

Perhaps the only thing consistent about her is that she's good at misrepresenting just about everything in her life ... from her children all the way up to her political standing. Hmmm ... does that count as a "statistic"?

... Emanuel used "f**king retards" in absolute seriousness ...
Actually he said an idea that some of them had was "fvcking retarded" ... the IDEA was retarded. He didn't call anyone at all "retarded".

... as he was referring to his fellow liberals.
He was not calling his fellow liberals "retarded" ... just some idiotic or moronic idea they had. When one looks in a thesaurus there really isn't much difference between using idiotic and moronic and retarded ...
Retarded … impeded … encumbered … obstructed

Idiotic … foolish … lacking judgment

Moronic … impaired

... but the emphasis was on the IDEA ... not the people who were talking or in the room.

What's it to Palin? They weren't talking about her or her child, although it would have been appropriate for her. She's definitely "impaired" ... the female version of "Dumbya"/The "High Functioning Moron".

BTW ... does anyone know ... has Paul Begala weighed in on this yet?

It was a hunch based on the whole picture we had at the time. I predicted that the wedding would not take place when the mother of Levi Johnston was arrested for drug trafficking. It wasn't a risky prediction by then, but the Palin supporters didn't want to believe me when I was saying that the whole thing was an act.

I wonder if Sarah Palin knew that sherry Johnston, the future mother-in-law of her daughter was under investigation for drug trafficking? If she knew, do you think that she ever was going to let her daughter get married to the father of that child?

All of that is going to be re-visited when she decides to run for office again.

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.

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.
