When, oh when, will the Palin's go BACK to the Alaskan wilderness and stay there?

TO: Mrs WA-silliness; your first priority is your special needs child; then your daughters so they don't do a "Bristol" and get pregnant. Once you do those two things, you'll have time to hunt a moose from your Palin-O-Copter and can fix moose stew for the "former" first dud - yes dud - not dude.

Since you would rather be out in the fresh air and not stuck in some old stuffy political office, that is what you should do.

You are not qualified to be in any high political office when you can't give a decent interview with professional journalists.

And if that isn't enough, you have a degree in journalism and yet you were not able to write your own book without help?

Please, stay in WA-silli-Town and out of the lower 48 states. We have managed all this time without out and can and will continue to do so.

Also, while your daughter has improved somewhat in dancing, she still can't dance as well as the others and acts like a cold fish whose partner has the plague when he gives her a hug for good comments from the judges.

It doesn't matter if she's not from Hollywood, she can't dance that well, she can't act and she doesn't appear to be having fun and enjoying it but is in it only for the money. She needs to go back to her job as a receptionist in WA-silli-Town and take care of her son.

What a sad example to use the title of 'teen activist' for lack of better words for another teenage unwed mother? What happened to those family values and conservative morals?

It's long past time for the far right conservatives to stop pushing that crap down our throats; for it is mostly the conservative, evangelical, pentecostals who seem to be getting caught having affairs.

So good worthy of a threepeat. Sarah was just honored by the Oxford Dictionary for creating the best word of 2010.

That's the cutest cartoon you've done so far.

Sarah is just so dreadful on so many levels. Surely Americans with brains will not buy into her cutesy performance. The country would be better off with Bristol as president.

PALIN 2012!
Because in your guts, you know she's nuts!

It's not to be believed that Sarah Palin is even on the plate for discussion. This is one of the most uninformed, intellectual lightweights of our time. She quit on the people of Alaska, has never said anything reflecting knowledge, substance or intelligence, ever! She's a whiner, a cackler and if she's in the top ten of what the Republicans have to offer, God Bless America.

The truth is that we need a better process for identifying candidates and vetting or disqualifying the ones who really should never have been considered.

Qualifications and experience need to take higher priority over T.V. savvy.

The Palin and O’Donnell spectacles never would have taken place.
Obama would still be in Illinois gaining experience.

Sarah won't run and here is why; She is an intellectual light wieght and knows it. A guy like Newt Gingirch would make her look stupid and uneducated in a debate and I give her some credit for recognizing this. Instead she will say that she can do more for the party from the sielines, she is making too much money to run , etc, etc. In the end she is just unable to articulate answers in an intellectual fashion.

Sarah Palin IS their "junk".

Posted by: fedup3 | November 18, 2010 8:29 AM | Report abuse

Hahahahahahahahahhah !!!!! So funny! It looks to me like Sarah is patting down the GOP elephant to see if there is anything there she is interested in!! Obviously, she finds nothing!

Maybe you can try it again Ann, and have the GOP elephant patting down dear little
SARAH to see if there is anything there besides her pretty face and smile! It can end by dear little Sarah slapping the GOP elephant in the face!

Thanks Ann

Your caricature of Palin is well done.

The bunny ears- don't know how you did it- but it's a match with the unconscious !

I just pictured one - Palin looking around on the ground for a roll - as in bread roll- but she'll be saying - "now, where is that last political roll I had- darn it - I lost it"

hmm or better - to get towards QUIT...

Palin lights up a smoke - the pack says "Governor" - someone comes by and says "I thought you quit Sarah ?"

or maybe the smoke it self has Governor on it.

I'd LOVE to see you bust loose on one issue with Palin I got to thinking about.

She's always going on about elitists.

Yet ? She demands a private corporate jet for her $100,000 per speech speeches, with prepared questions- and a posse of black SUV's to take her to and from the jet.

Gee. elitist ?

Maybe have her at a desk on the corporate jet with big stacks of $100,000 each - with each stack a paper saying "Seattle speech" "Colorado speech payment" and have her saying "I need someone to come in and help me with my facebook page for my stance against elitism."

I just caught a reprint of the famous New Yorker comic by the guy who created teh Adams Family - was in that magazine Mental Floss- sorry I don't have his name- shows the skier ? looking back at the tracks of another skier ? where the tracks approach a tree, spread apart, and continue on ? the wonder of "How on earth did THAT happen"... Sums up 2000 to 2008 for me !

Palin believes it's End DAys and she wants to seek office to grant her access to the nuclear launch codes Ann.... HELP save the world -

If I were multiple personality - the crowd in my head would chant Crucify her - Crucify her !

Hey- she gets in ? she believes God has special plans for her AND she believes it's End Days - this must NOT be allowed to happen for the safety and security of the entire human race.

Crazy as that sounds- I'm not kidding !

Love your own self portrait there- I'm GUESSING you've been around the block so many times, you know ALL the houses and who lives in em. Like the Daily Show, I find your work CATHARTIC... It's BEYOND entertainment - it's CIVIL DUTY !

Have our standards of intelligence, statesmanship, and political will declined so much that that we would even consider her as a serious contender for one of the most powerful leaders on the planet? From the polls and articles, it would appear we have truly lost our way. Surely this great nation has better more experienced and qualified men and women to run our great nation. We face issues of global survival. We desperately need visionaries and leaders that will intelligently and bravely face these issues. America look at the candidates of all political parties and hold them to the highest standards of intelligence, integrity, and leadership, if not for yourself then for future generations.

For God sake, can you see her giving a speech at the UN with a "gotcha" to all the little brown people, or facing off with Putin in her mini. Are we out of our minds. This whole Lake Wobegon charade has got to end. She's is at best an entertainer with limited intelligence and our country deserves better. If it doesn't then we are doomed by any standard.

Seems she grabbed the elephant by the trunk.
