Agreed: '"I'm a Palin fan, because she irritates just the right people for me," [Dennis Miller] said.'
I'm amused by the frothing that happens when Palin is mentioned in the presence of my lefty friends. I'm very puzzled by the amazing ferocity the mere mention of Palin brings out in my center-left friends. I think that, if she tones down the religious rhetoric, bones up on the issues, and fields her own campaign team she definitely has a shot. And if she wins the Democrats will have nobody but themselves to blame, because nothing drives people center-right quite as fast as putting a darling of the left in the oval office.
eMail this entry!
Nothing could be better for the Democratic party than a Palin 2012 nomination. So at least we're rooting for the same thing.
Heh. If a broken down has-been actor who "sold out his friends to McCarthy," hated by EVERYONE in the Hollywood establishment, the media, and anyone else who counted at the time can make it, anyone can. Your pride may be your undoing....
To be honest, she couldn't be less effective than Obama. I've never quite seen anyone more revered but some completely ineffective.
Damned amusing, that.
I don't buy that Palin could be the best thing that happens to Democrats... sound more like screeching terror masked with Orwellian doublethink on the part of the left wing to me.
