A recent Associated Press hit job on Sarah Palin on apnews.myway.com by Rachel D'Oro, obviously no fan of the governor, refers to her as "the controversial hockey mom," several times referring to her as "controversial."
Did you happen to see the Kook's aunts, nephews and friends loading up on Marine 1 for a vacation to Camp David? What a disgrace. The Marine stood there carrying out his duty with a sharp salute to these bag people. Next there will be a Kenya flag painted over our USA Flag.
The nomination of Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate was controversial. There were many in the Republican Party that thought she was not a good pick, and, therefore, a controversy was the result. And there was further controversy among McCain's election staff when Governor Palin went off on her own and deviated from their plans. Then there was the controversy when her unmarried teenaged daughter became pregnant. The label of "controversial" does apply to Governor Palin. I don't think it is a trick. I do agree with Mr Miller's point that to label her as polarizing is not correct. She seems more unifying than divisive to a political party that looks like it is falling apart at the seams.

So she can shop for nice clothes and makeup. Big whoop. Beautiful doesn't mean she can run a country. The intelligence? It's not so apparent when she's behind a podium.
Mind you, I'm not one for supporting Obama, not at all. But Palin? No. Just no.
A Republican nominee is going to need more than an eyelash curler and a "we're just a couple of maverick's" soundbite to win. Sadly, if this one decides to run, she is going to draw just enough interest with her "controversy" to draw attention away from the more important matter of finding a Republican that can win.
If not Sarah, how about Ron Paul 2012 ? I voted for him in '88 and '08. I believe McCain was about the weakest candidate the Repubs could have nominated. He was pitiful. I was stuck with him in the general election. I saw no enthusiasm for him among Republicans. Conservative Sam Francis, Ph.D used to refer to the Republicans as the "Stupid Party." There is a lot of truth to that. You should check out Sam's writings (shotsfired.us) and elsewhere. He was a great one, and gutsy. I miss him.
