    Palin's gender has NOTHING to do with why people think she's an idiot. The idiotic things that come out of her mouth are why people think she's an idiot.

    No one ever called Hillary an idiot, and last time I checked she was a woman, and she came close to winning the nomination for president.

    And, yes, the country was 'big enough' to have a minority as president. I won't even go into how offensive that comes off.

    Maybe if Palin would stay out of the spotlight people wouldn't keep talking about her. Besides, we don't have Dubya to kick around anymore, so we need some laughs.

    Michelle Goldberg, Daily Beast columnist and author of The Means of Reproduction: Sex, Power and the Future of the World

    She lowered the bar. That should be Sarah Palinís political epitaph. Ever since Richard Nixon, the Republican Party has made a fetish of mediocrity, lambasting the sophisticated and educated while lionizing the relentlessly ordinary. Yet this was always a bit of a rhetorical put on, because the party did not, in general, propose to turn the levers of power over to anyone with the average Americanís innocence of policy knowledge or governing expertise. That is, until Palin.

    Even at her supposed bestówinking and flirting her way through the vice presidential debate, for exampleóPalin was shockingly ill-informed. Given the abrupt way she abandoned her post as governor, itís abundantly clear that she didnít compensate for her lack of expertise with any particular tenacity or strength of character. Palinís sole qualification for national office remains her embodiment of the Republican id. No one else so perfectly captures its relentless anti-intellectualism, its tawdry personal scandals, its rabid resentment of Hollywood just barely camouflaging a slavish obsession with celebrity.

    In a way, she provided a service by making the truth about the GOP so clear. There are plenty of other Republicans, after all, who are just as contemptuous of facts and as eager to demagogue, but most havenít spent enough time on the national stage to truly terrify independents and moderates.

    Nevertheless, the damage Palinís nomination has done to our already lurid and degraded political culture is likely to endure. The Republican Party can now nominate virtually anyone, save Michele Bachmann, for vice president and it will look like an improvement, a sign of increasing sobriety and responsibility. And, of course, Palin herself will likely remain influentialóshe did as much as anyone, after all, to spread the ďdeath panelĒ smear. Sheís proved that ignorance really can be strength.

    you know, i also think it's funny that *some* people think Palin was picked apart because she was a woman (patently untrue, she's a fucking retard and that's why)... but it's also amusing to note that the ONLY reason she was picked for the VP slot at all.. is because she IS a woman. She was an unexpected choice, and McTard was hoping he'd snap up some PUMA's.

    She got picked cuz she had a vag. Period. Yet nobody seems to have a problem with THAT.

    The best description of her debate performance.

    That's not true. The right wingers talk about her running in 2012 all the time.

    Nah, they'd nominate Michele Bachmann as a VP next go-around without a problem because she would appeal to "the base." It's one of the reasons why Palin was chosen. She solidified/fired up "the base." There are plenty of nutjobs who already think the 2012 ticket should be Palin/Bachmann.

    In fairness to Alaska, Bush has those same attributes, and enough of the country voted for him so that Florida was close enough that Katherine Harris and the Supremes could give the election to him.

    None of the intelligent ones do(and yes, they do exist- and they don't listen to Limbaugh or Beck, but they understand the purpose clowns like that serve). Just the psychos. I see lots of arguments on the mainstream right wing sites when a Palinista tries to bring her up. She is not taken seriously anymore even on that side. They understand the havoc she wreaked on their side's chances in the last election, they won't make that mistake again. I'm not saying she doesn't have fans, but they aren't the ones that concern me, they're the deranged. She gets triple the amount of attention from the left- which serves a purpose too- she's a decoy. It's the seemingly normal right wingers we need to keep our eyes on, they're the ones who have a real chance.

    The right winger to watch for 2012 (at least at this point) is Romney.

    And America deserved what it got with Dubya, especially in 2004.

    But I blame Al Gore for what happened in 2000. If he hadn't distanced himself from Clinton then the election wouldn't have come down to Florida. I mean, Gore couldn't even carry his own home state.

    Except that "the base" wasn't very excited about McCain, and they're even less excited about Romney. It's the moderates in the GOP who like Romney. "The base" probably won't get behind him if he's the Prez nominee in '12. They'll have to pick another psycho to appeal to "the base," like Bachmann or Palin again, for VP nominee.
