Palin is fucked

When a right wing sensible Republican commentator predicts you are toast I tend to believe her and that is the opinion of Jennifer Rubin

" Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has been unfairly compared to Sarah Palin. There is a certain sexism in lining the two up, as opposed to lining up Bachmann and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who are both Tea Party favorites, or Bachmann and Newt Gingrich (new and old grass-roots favorites). Bachmann has very little aside from party and gender in common with Palin. Bachmann is a current and experienced officeholder, a lawyer and able to opine on specifics of legislation. In a very real sense, Palin is no Michele Bachmann. "

Ouch. Rubin is no right wing nut case, actually if the Republicans wanted a credible candidate they might want to look at her but I guess in the USA you don't go from the Washington Post to the White House.

And it is for this reason, I think, that whatever slim chance there was for a Palin presidential candidacy will evaporate when Bachmann, if as expected, gets into the race next week....

In the Daily Caller, Caroline May asks what Bachmann can learn from the Palin experience. Former McCain campaign adviser Michael Goldfarb warns, “ It is obvious the media does not take Bachmann seriously. They don’t take her views seriously and they don’t take the view of her supporters seriously even though that is a huge segment of the Republican Party and the country.”

" It is hard to argue with that, but it is equally true that Bachmann has the ability to engage the mainstream media on issues in a way Palin could not. She, unlike Palin, has the advantage of reduced expectations and a lawyer’s mind for debate. Frankly, the only one who should be concerned about the Palin comparison is Palin, who probably won’t run, in part, because the comparison does not favor her."

They are both fucking nutters but Palin is the more competent nutter giving
a huge advantage. I think that Palin showed her political stupidity  though  with this. "

" Sarah Palin and Donald Trump exchanged words of admiration Tuesday after a brief meeting at the real estate magnate's penthouse in a Manhattan skyscraper bearing his name.Palin, the former Republican vice presidential nominee, said she and Trump shared similar ideas for improving the U.S. economy, while Trump called Palin a "terrific woman and a terrific friend" who he hoped would seek the GOP presidential nomination. 

Sort of sums the woman up and unfortunately sums up America a serial bankrupt and a fucking idiot are planning to to take control of the worlds biggest nuclear arsenal. 

President Obama will win a second term because he is an effective President who actually  gets the job done, something that must be a unique experience for the US and because all the Republican's can offer  are a bunch of stupid racist rednecks.

I am guessing the guy's at Hustler would love a Palin / Bachmann ticket.
