Sarah Palin as president?
Now we know what it takes to make the Mayan calendar look good.
After highlighting bluefront's cult following of the GOP, have you taken to a similar following of the Dems?
Why should I? I neither vote for them, endorse them, nor do I complement them. Once the overwhelming majority was sure that Obama meant change then I was sure we wouldn't get any. The same financial crooks under Bush are in charge under Obama.

Yes. But that also means when so many pointed out that Bush couldn't speak well and his zealot followers got pissed off there was no justification for it, was there? IE If they can dish it out they better be able to take it as well.
I think you can ask Obama what newspapers he reads and get an intelligent answer without rehersal or a teleprompter. With Palin you get a deer caught in car headlights.

Now you're talking to me like I even believe he deserved the award, which I do not. On the other hand if Bush/Cheney handled the Cuban missile crisis you and I would be nothing but radioactive fallout right now.

I believe people hesitate because one should criticize the actions of the man, not what the man is. But also one must steer clear of being misquoted and being taken out of context. So one can see why it's a lot easier to shut up than to speak up. Is that why O'Reilly tells people to shut up so often? I think not.

I don't get this statement. If anything I ain't hip, I can't dance, and God knows I can't jump.
As for political alliances there is one simple fact and constant in the universe. Which party is the most corrupt? The party in charge, simply because they have more opportunity. Those that serve with ethics can barely hold a candle to those that don't. They are outnumbered, out financed, and outgunned. We're owned by the K-Street whores, and as long as we accept it then we may as well say "Thank you sir, may I please have another," like Kevin Bacon in Animal House.

Eh, I've been called worse. No problem.
People who put money and political ideology ahead of truth and ethics are neither patriots nor human beings.
