Laura Leslie of WUNC-FM – who does a great political blog - told a panel during last year’s campaign that she was sick and tired of men who liked Sarah Palin because she is “hot.”
 
Sorry, Laura, but how else can someone so clearly unprepared for national office be taken seriously as a candidate for national office?
 
Maybe we’ll learn one day that this is all some elaborate reality-TV concept. Some manic producer in New York said:
 
“Okay, here’s the idea. We’ll take this good-looking babe. We’ll have her come from someplace crazy – like Alaska! And she’ll have a family full of nut cases. Then we’ll throw her into the middle of national politics and see what happens.”
 
Charisma – call it “hot” – has always been part of politics. Witness John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
 
What’s new with Palin is her true believers’ fervent faith that her lack of intellectual depth is a qualification – not a disqualification – for high office.
 
In the end, Palin’s appeal is more like that of Richard Nixon and George Wallace: the politics of resentment.

Not to mention UNC is a far left radio and tv station funded by my tax dollars.
Obama is doing a great job.
Unemployment at 10.2% and this idiot is running all over the world telling us the world telling how bad America is.
This jerk fits right in, with Easy, Hunt, Perdue and Nifong.
Palin keep far left dingbats bitching.
I love it!

I just posted on the "Forum" that Sarah Palin scares the heck out of democrats because of her appeal to the base within the republican party. Republicans have become disenfranchised because of Bush & Co. Palin is helping to regain the momentum republicans had in prior-Bush years...well, actually during his first term and before.

Dems are belivin' Palin is all about running for office and think that's going to somehow be their saving grace. Truth is, Palin is gonna be a strong force for helping get repubs elected in coming elections and will persue her own career now which might not necessarily include running for public office. She's a very strong republican...a known conservative proponent...a likeable figure....an attention getter....a media phenom.

Scares the HELL out of dems.

Its urbane range exclusively designed Nike shoes for the basketball champions offers the highest level of flexibility, support and breathability.

Also, the Nike Free foam thickness is such that is reduces the overall weight of the shoe and provides more firmness while playing.The popularity of basketball Nike Free 7.0 has made it the sport of choice for many people and also inspired great innovations in shoe designs among the manufacturers. The Nike shoes brand has continued to offer the competition a real run for their money. Nike basketball kobe shoes are in a class of their own because of the cutting edge technology and creative designs used for these and other Nike shoes. To enable customers enjoy their products at wallet-friendly prices Nike basketball shoes discounts are on Nike air max offer.There are tons of sporting lebron shoes for every basketball player from Nike.

Nike shoes are meticulously designed to make your basketball sporting events memorable.
The Nike 6.0 Dunk High,air shoes as the name suggests, belongs to the family of 'high' Nike Dunk products, relatives to it in that family being the likes of the 'Custom Nike Dunk High Back to the Future,' the Nike 6.0 Dunk High Black Coral, the Nike airmax 6.0 Dunk High Mint and the Nike Dunk Dinosaur Junior, to name but just a few of all 'high' nike free products. I didn't really know why there seemed to be so much buzz around the 'High' Nike Dunk products, until I got to use the Nike High - a nike free 5.0 shoe that I have since (in the few months of my using it), gotten thoroughly enchanted with. In keeping with its name,air shoes the Nike 6.0 Dunk High is a truly high shoe in the real sense of the word 'high.' The shoe's height is, however, not entirely based on its sole thickness, because as far as dunk sole thickness goes, the thickness of this Air Max 90 shoe's sole is pretty much average. The height of the Nike 6.0 Dunk High is, on the contrary, most manifest on the nike free shoe's upper body; where the shoe starts off quite low at the base (where the toes go into the shoe);Nike Air Max 2009 and then grows in height as it progresses towards the center, to reach a peak height at the end of the air maxshoe's tongue (approximately at the center of the shoe lengthwise) - before falling slightly towards the back of the airmax shoe, perhaps in a bid to ensure the wearer's comfort. The vertical stripes engraved on the shoe's 'protruding' sole on the low-most part of the nike free 5.0 shoe also contribute in making these dunk appear taller than it would be when gauged with a tape measure.Besides height,air shoes another highly remarkable feature of the dunks is its multi-color properties, and in this regard, thenike free seems to be unabashedly colorful. My own pair, for instance, has at least 6 colors that I can count: starting with the black that is painted on a portion of the shoe's sole that borders the upper body of the airmax shoes, moving onto the yellow which colors the shoe's sole, and Nike Air Max 2009 moving onto the pink that colors the Nike tick appearing on the body of the shoe. Other colors on my pair of the Nike 6.0 Dunk High include a shade of light blue on two small sections of the air maxshoe (towards the front and on the back-most part of the shoe's upper body), the white on the shoe's laces, and a tint of light-grey on running diagonally from the lower section of the back-most part of the shoe's upper body, all the way the highest point of the nike free 5.0 shoe near the tip of the tongue.
