    I'm pretty fascinated by the extent to which she is male-identified. It's evident in her authoritarianism, which almost always stems from childhood trauma, but it's more than that. I've never heard her mother mentioned. I know her dad was a science teacher, but I've not heard much about mom. And so many times, women like this have crazy mothers and bond with their fathers, which is why they end up so conservative and unsupportive of anything feminine-ish, like reproductive rights. I have two crazy sister-in-laws who are extremely religious and conservative like Palin, both trade shamelessly on their looks, are proud of their ability to manipulate people, especially men, and don't work AT ALL, or just hold a job here or there for a few days. And both of them, their mothers are borderline lunatics.

    Funny you should mention Carter. Carter gets a bum rap for being a 'bad' president when in many ways, he was the only recent leader that told the truth, even if no one wanted to hear it. He tried to look at the country's problem realistically and was ripped to shreds for it.

    Carter's election was an anomaly, anyway. He wasn't supposed to be victorious among the conversative 1970s, but Watergate opened the door for him.

    Then he holed up in the Rose Garden until the hostages came home and lost. Much like McCain wanted to hole up in Washington until a deal was worked out.

    I get what you're saying. You're right. There are people who travel and only stick to the tourist traps.

    Still to me, it's frightening, that this woman hasn't really been anywhere. Maybe some won't agree with me on that, but I think it's def a plus and would enhance her ideas on foreign policy/countries if she has travelled to diff places in the world and seen for herself, especially in the position she's been put in.

    But when it all comes down to it, her experience rides on the fact, according to her, that Russia & Alaska are neighbors.

    HAHAHAHAHA

    ^^ Whats even more interesting she ignores that Canada the real neighbour isnt as important to her and its one of the major trading partners in the States.
    She's just adopted the repub talking point of hyping up the xenophobia and the fear of the commies coming to get the USA and that she has the experience to deal with that.

    That's because she's a member here at GR and has read what Grimm has to say.

    What should happen is Palin should be interviewed as much as possible. She should be asked questions she has not had time to relay to her PR team to answer, then memorize their work.
    Yup. Let the punishment fit the crime. She's only a victim of her own ambition. I don't feel sorry for her no matter how badly she does or how widely she's mocked. She deserves it.

    that's that authoritarian two-step: 1. declare an enemy 2. project, project, project. Works every time.
