Thanks for the explanation.
My understanding was that due to the way the state laws were set up, Palin and her family were responsible for the legal fees of defending her office personally from all the crap they were throwing at her, frivolous or not, and it was...

By all accounts, she was successful in her actions as mayor, chairman of the Alaska oil/gas commission, and governor - with a record of consensus building with both parties to get legislation passed.

That's a great point, 808. I place more value on practical accomplishment that almost anything else a politician can come up with.
That's why in my universe, politicians would have term limits and return to their real line of work after contributing to their country. It's amazing how may pinhea...

I, like most of the known political universe, equates the application of the term "rhetoric" into an opposing political stance. I see no more "dumb quotes" from Palin outside what would be normal and expected from the media with a traditional bent against conservatives.
Specifics examples you pr...

Hmmm... odd. I see a whole lot of opinion that "Palin is stupid" but I see little to back it up.
Why? Why is she stupid? Seems to me that the vast majority of "stupid stuff" people think that Palin has said should really be attributed to someone else. The most famous example is that she never...
