I suppose she was, Dick, but I would argue that everything you and your repugnant administration did from 2001 - 2009 was the real mistake.

The absolute worst part of selecting Palin was that her and her mutant familial unit refuse to STFU and go away

/Goddamn you John McCain

No, Dick, getting 4,000 Americans killed in Iraq for no f*cking reason was a MISTAKE.

Palin was just entertainment.

DeltaPunch: Gergesa: I am curious to know what the republican party will look like in 2016. Right now they seem like they are gripped in hysteria and reliving the cold war and civil rights. In 2016 will they manage to look even more out of touch?

If Obama wins there will a huge backlash of derp. Remember the last time he won? Yeah, we ended up with the Tea Party. And they're going to be even angrier this time. There's going to be a tidal wave of whaargarbl, and will be up to the GOP to reign it in. Otherwise, the 2016 primary could be an even bigger clown show than this time around.


The way Fox News is going, they've got people ready to yell "To arms! To arms!" if Obama wins. There are a lot of tea partiers who have been convinced Obama wants to come for their guns are are expecting a civil war to start if he gets re-elected. I put most of the blame for this mentality squarely at the feet of Fox News. If they can't reign in the rhetoric during/after the election, things could honestly become dangerous.

fark Dick Cheney. Sarah Palin was only a mistake because they lost. That's all these assholes care about. He damn sure wasn't saying she was a mistake at the time and encouraging people to vote Obama. Party before country, always.

Ed Finnerty: Romney asking someone to be his VP is like loading a pistol completely, handing it to a person, and saying "Let's play Russian Roulette - I like our chances. You first."


Best part is that the eventual nominee will be whomever lacks the intestinal fortitude to reject such a death sentence. I could see Pawlenty weakly accepting it, "Golly, I'll take any chance to serve my country."

The real men are waiting it out for 2016, which will be one of the widest open fields for the GOP in recent times.

robsul82: GAT_00: Palin is the single thing that got my father to vote for Obama.

This. Well, not the only thing, as he's essentially become a man without a party as the Republicans have become dominated by Bible beating nuts, but he's said many times there was no way he was going to vote for that ticket considering what could happen to McCain. He wasn't the only one either, I knew quite a few conservatives who were fine voting for McCain until he picked Palin.


I dunno...my aged grandmother (93 at the time) didn't want to vote for McCain because she thought he was too old.

Pappas: Corvus: Romney has LESS political experience then Sarah Palin had!! And he is at the top of the ticket!!

If you think Sarah Palin wasn't experienced enough how the hell can you vote for Romney?

I'm not one to defend Mitt, but that's just stupid. Mitt began running for office state and national office in 1994 and was governor of Massachusetts for four years. Palin was mayor of a city with 7,000 people and quit being the mayor of Alaska (with a population 6 times smaller than Mass.) after barely 3 years. As far as political experience goes, Rmoney blows her out of the water.


So massuchestes counts as dog years or something?

Romney has only 4 years of any political office, Palin had much more. Yes they were smaller offices but it's still more political experience like I said.

Romney only has had 4 years in one position he is one of the least experienced person running for president in modern history.

So much this.

Nobody from W's gang of incompetent scumbags has the right to pass judgment on anyone. What those neocon creeps managed to get away with makes Watergate look like child's play. Just because the American public lost its appetite for prosecution of corruption doesn't change the fact that Cheney and Company deserve to be sitting in prison cells right now.

No fan of Palin by any stretch, but her place in history will be something of a sideshow footnote. Cheney has blood on his hands. There is a difference.

SevenizGud: basemetal: Meh, after the last eight years of GWB, the dems could have run a blue goose and won that election.

And instead they nominated the guy that would lead to an historic loss of house seats in the off-year election...so much so that the GOP took control of the House of Representatives.

You Dems keep up with teh Fartbongo and Igor ticket, and I'll enjoy my filibuster-proof senate and GOP house in 2014. Then in 2016 well elect a GOP president, have a GOP house, a filibuster-proof GOP senate, and 8 of 9 on the supreme court in 2018.

I really DO have hope for Fartbongo. Go Fartbongo go.


So you farking retards finally realized four or eight years under Obama isn't the end of the world? I don't buy it. That would require foresight, rationality and dropping the urge to cry every time things don't go your way. How could your pussy party even survive without every thing that happens being the death knell of this country as we know it. That's your whole platform. The party that cried wolf wasted their fear when normal people kept waking up day after day and realized none of these had happened and began laughing at how ridiculous you are.

I work with a bunch of old engineers, and most are Republicans. They were all about McCain, but Palin scared them a lot. I think the election would have been much closer if Palin hadn't been in the mix.


Surely all Republican elections are going to be like this - one or other wing of the Republican party (plutocrat or theocrat) will win the nomination, and then have to pick a VP from the opposite side to get at least some of the other wing not to stay home, knowing that some of the more marginal voters in the original bloc will be turned off by it, but hoping to get more from the VP's wing of the party turning up to offset that loss.

Big farking deal. Wake me when he or any of the pundits blast someone currently holding office that says shiat as dumb or as hateful as Palin. Michelle Bachmann anyone? She ought to be kicked off all her committees and censured by the House for her most recent bullshiat.

Palin's about as relevant as my taint these days in terms of political clout. The dullard was posing in a chick fil a yesterday while dressed like some redneck visiting Branson, MO for farks sake. Way to take a stand, Cheney!

What do you mean by "actually take on Obama"? Lie early and often about him?

Palin is the single thing that got my father to vote for Obama.


She got both my parents to vote Obama, and they both voted for Bush in '04. They were solidly McCain until she started opening her mouth. She sealed the deal for me to vote Obama. I had been leaning that way, but the lack of experience was hard to swallow, until the alternative suddenly became scary as hell.

We loved Sarah. She made us come alive. She was our only hope.
She was a princess in shining armor. We sent money because of her.

Alas, she just didn't have enough to get McLame over the fence.
No one could have done any better.
McLame was not to be president no matter what.

The powers behind n0bama were well underway and is still going strong.
