GUEST,John BS: Palin sips tea tonight (319* d) RE: BS: Palin sips tea tonight 07 Mar 10


Akenaton gets the point that I hope that everyone gets. Sarah Palin is not much of a risk as a Presidential candidate several years from now.

She has been the chief voice of opposition to the policies of the current administration, opposition that has fought a popular (before Palin and others started chipping away) President to a virtual standstill.

Carol is still focused on whether she used to belong to a church that has some vague connection to some extreme outfit that is vaguely repugnant to people like her. Who cares? Why is this about Palin?

Palin is getting good money for speaking to big crowds with great news coverage right now. She isn't going to stop. She is not a fool to be ignored. She isn't losing her fight; she is winning.

She is plenty bright, has good character, has a good record of sound administration of a little state government, is not particularly extreme, and is very appealing to our political opponents. The best we seem to be able to do is try to land telling slurs about the church she used to go to, or where she writes her interview reminders.

If we don't get serious, we are going to be toasted by someone whose only tools are a little charm and national audience.
