Palin dissed -- again; Romney emigrates from Libya

Now this is what is known as a qualified endorsement.

Alaska's Republican Senate nominee, Joe Miller, who got his endorsement largely because of Sarah Palin's endorsement, isn't returning the favor. Asked by Fox News's Megyn Kelly about whether he considers Palin qualified to be president, he replied:

"No, let me make this unequivocal. She's done phenomenal things for this country, there's no question about that. She's elevated the debate critical to our race, and let me tell you also: we know what qualified means, don't we? We know that we have a constitutional requirement for somebody that's gonna run for President. Of course, she's qualified."

Assuming that birth certificate is legit.

Cue the thuggish Latinos!

Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), in a campaign ad, used the same photo of menacing-looking Hispanic men that Nevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle used. "ILLEGAL ALIENS," proclaims Angle's photo of the tough guys, one in a reversed baseball cap. "BENEFITS FOR ILLEGALS," says Vitter's caption of the same photo.

Mitt Romney was born in Michigan, ran the Olympics in Utah and was governor of Massachusetts. Now he's moving from Libya to Trinidad and Tobago -- (or at least an Internet version of him is).

Heck, I'm technically qualified to be President. And I notice a lot of .ly urls in your Twitter feed. Does WaPo know that you support turrists too?

Wow!
Another report that Palin is falling!
Another push poll that shows Palin is less popular every minute that goes by!
Amazing how since she came on the scene, "reporters" like Millbank have repeatedly described Palin as collapsing, failing, going backwards, etc..
Yet she is still in the news and still going strong. Funny how that works.
You can constantly fall yet still not be at the bottom. She must have been more popular than the Pope to fail so much and still be around..
Keep hitting out at her.
Keep trying to hurt her popularity.
Keep trying to scare "moderates" away from her.
