    Good looking or not, she has no chance of attracting the middle or independents. So while she may continue to excite the far right, she will be a drag on any national ticket. Senate, maybe. That's the best she can hope for.

    The republican party is the mess that it is because it abandoned its fiscal responsibility in favor of attempting to turn this country into the United States of Jesusland. (I say this as a Christian.) They've gotta open the flaps to the tent to some non-evangelicals and pro-choice types, or it's going to take a long time to rebound.

    The reason that the Republicans lost the election is because they abandoned the conservative platform and leaders in favor of a more "moderate" no-whereville. Lindsay Graham, John McCain ,Schwarzenegger , and others did not represent the fiscal responsibility, border control, pro-business, pro-family aspects that the conservative part of the party endorses. On the heels of Bush's second term(where he spent like a drunken sailor on leave), a more conservative agenda was the way to go. McCain's campaign was energized by the addition of the conservative Palin.(Despite what the liberal mainstream media says.) The reason that this discussion continues, is that the liberal mainstream is deathly afraid of Palin, and what she represents. If not for Huckabee,(who destroyed Romney's chances, with no hope of gaining the nomination), and the non-campaigns of Rudy, and Fred Thompson, Obama may very well have lost the election.Obama's victory was not the landslide predicted, and his electoral college victory was created mostly by small majorities in states possessing significant inner city environments, who viewed this election as a winning lottery ticket.I do not agree that Palin will disappear, she will IMO represent part of the new face of the Republican Party. Her numbers were off the charts in terms of poularity, and you don't get to be GOVERNOR of any state by being an ignoramus. In light of his numerous off the cuff gaffes,(Nancy Reagan) as opposed to the carefully crafted speeches, I wonder if Obama wins the election with only months, and not years to prepare.

    [QUOTE=bitonti;2851007]Alaska is a state which just elected an 84 year old felon to the Senate.

    There are 2 things that has to happen here for the GOP to become relevant again, either Palin has to cure her ignorance or they need to dump the Palin's of the world and go back to their roots of fiscal conservation.
    [B]
    There was a time not too long ago the GOP was the party of William F Buckley - small government business men - now it is the party of social issue wack-a-doos who think Africa is a country and have no problem going into massive debt and expanding the government as large as possible (See Bush, George W.) [/B]

    And hey - that's fine and dandy but don't expect to win a general election with that garbage. No matter how hot the person is... putting a Palin up for a general election - the way she is right now - is insulting to the intelligence of the country.

    Now im not saying in 2012 she could get some tutoring and become a force -she has alot of charisma - but right now she thinks she knows it all, and the truth is very far from that.

    Put it another way, as a Democrat, I get happy when I hear about all this Palin in 2012 talk - because she's a divider not a uniter and that type of politics died a grousome death about a week ago.[/QUOTE]
    Good post, I think the main thing that drives me nuts about Palin is that she's a female Bush and there's so many so called conservatives that want to put her in office again..

    [QUOTE=Guido Monzino;2851017]Seriously? Can we dump this now? The only reason Palin is in the news anymore is because the libs WANT to make her the face of the Republican Party. Why wouldn't they? That would ensure their extinction.

    But a year from now, you will barely remember her name. She will disappear forever.[/QUOTE]

    Yeah, that's exactly what is going on here.... it's only liberals who want her to be the face of the party.

    :rolleyes:

    [QUOTE]When asked to choose among some of the GOP’s top names for their choice for the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, 64% say Palin. The next closest contenders are two former governors and unsuccessful challengers for the presidential nomination this year -- Mike Huckabee of Arkansas with 12% support and Mitt Romney of Massachusetts with 11%.[/QUOTE]

    Regardless, WHO F-ING CARES? She is a NOBODY. The election has been over for a week.

    Are Palin threads going to become the Chad threads of the political forum? Get over it, they're gone!

    Everyone should be afraid of her. She would be a disaster as president.

    And damn, how screwed up is Alaska? Seriously. How can you elect a convicted felon to the United States Senate?

    Why should Palin go on stage with someone she disagrees with! Maybe McCain was playing both sides of the issue and she saw it for what it was!
