Please! Like Obama isn't unbelievably sexy? Are you too far left to admit that?

What really pisses me off is that I have to subsidize wendersfan's use of natural gas.

I think the hot air generated by certain members of this forum would be enough to power our countries energy needs for years to come.

Oklahoma receives about $1.07 for every dollar it sends to Washington. Ohio receives about $0.93 for every dollar it sends. Who is subsidizing who exactly?

BTW, Illinois only gets back 75 cents on the dollar. You're welcome.

As I recall, that was just a false alarm and the thread also devolved into a discussion of the "gas pass-thru" tax.

Of course you do, since you told us you write on your own hand and defend Palins actions.

Professionals carry paper or a notebook, or a device to input ideas with them, when they are in situations where they might need to take a note. If I am in a situation where I need to "recall" things, I have a notebook, at worst, I would write on SOME type of paper, and use that. I haven't written on my hand since I was in grade school.

Again, I have no issue with WHAT she has written down, even if it's "Breathe"...But to defend her, and call her PROFESSIONAL, when she has notes written on her hand, is a joke. But you write on your hand too, so I guess you like Palin, because she's like you. (That is the problem with her)

And to make a mountain out of a molehill, as you are doing, is even a bigger joke.

Enough about this hand thing. Let's talk about her wardrobe again.

But it wasn't a joke that she criticized Obama for using a teleprompter?

No one in politics right now, on either side, makes a mountain out of molehill, like Palin.

I'd love to see her not make any excuses and take questions from the press in the same way that Obama did from the Republicans. She can even bring notes and they can put in on PPV to pay of the debt or what she probably prefer, hve the proceeds go directly into her and Todd's retarded checking account.

I'm glad you are able to do that, I'm sure you have a fine paper filled job. I on the other hand, though I carry a notebook 99% of the time, either often don't have time or hands free to pull it out to jot down a license plate, birth date, etc. Generally I write it on my latex gloves, but if I'm not wearing them ink wipes off easily with Purex (which I use about 100 times a day).

My liking Palin has nothing to do with "her being like me", Like has been mentioned before what I'm liking the most right now is how she drives you guys batshit. Hell, she was compared to Hitler on the news the other day. It's great!

She doesn't drive anyone batshit. She's a friggin' punchline. The only people that thinks she's viable are the batshit crazy tea party mouth breathers and the lunatic birthers.

She is amusing, an incredibly dim bulb, the quintessential empty skirt. Not one conservative I know thinks she's credible in any fashion.

To think 26 people in this poll thinks Palin will the the next president.



She won't even sniff the nomination.

Keep saying that, and keep denigrating the Tea Part members. Trust me, that's a tactic that's working just fine.

I don't know who will be the Republican nominee in 2012.

I believe some polls show that Palin is the leading candidate.

If the economy doesn't signficantly improve, we'll have a thread as to who will get the Democratic nomination.

Suppose in 2012, Obama's got the democratic nomination sewn up. Suppose you live in a state with open primary voting.

For those of you who hate Sarah Palin, would you vote for her or against her in a republican primary?

And if it comes from c-man it could be categorized as a fossil fuel

Anyway, this is definitely one of the more entertaining threads at the Politics forum. I am happy that Palin continues to stay in the news so I can be entertained for many more months to come (and one of the reasons I'm not that scared if she becomes President).
