  1. I like cake

  2. Well Liz, you are not as smart as you think you are and it appears you are not too intelligent when it comes to politics either.

    They were thinking of Hilary… you dolt. And I would bet that Sarah Palin could run circles around you when it comes to politics.

    How about waking up… http://tinyurl.com/988chjw

    • PhilipJames, thank you for pointing out something that is no longer relevant to the issue at hand because it happened a couple weeks ago. Also, thank you for pointing out something that I intended to point out in a later piece, at length. Obama does not exactly equal “the White House” at this point. Now, hopefully you can recall several years ago, when some people started referring to Karl Rove as “Bush’s Brain.” I would suggest that at some point in the future, either before or after this November, the same will probably said of Valerie Jarrett and Obama. In this, I am referring to Obama the man, not Obama the campaign – the first is obviously the individual, and the latter is the collective thought processes of those that are attempting to keep the man in office. That includes Jarrett, of course. I have no doubt in my mind that someone in the campaign wanted to approach Hillary about the VP spot, but Obama the man probably was not that person. Bill is a wild card, and likely do as much, if not more, damage as Biden. But I think I already pointed that out. As for Sarah Palin, please do tell me – what office does she currently hold? What factor makes her significantly different from someone like say, Mike Huckabee, as far as future aspirations for holding public office of any kind is concerned? Palin’s “political career” is over. She has entered the wonderful world of political commentary, and it is extremely unlikely that she will ever hold public office ever again. Because of that, the rules have changed somewhat for her. Back to what I said previously, if she doesn’t get herself in the spotlight periodically, she will fall into the abyss of irrelevancy. That means no income. She is doing her current job, and no matter what she does, she will never be billed as a great intellectual force. She isn’t one. I am not saying she’s stupid. I am saying she’s no scholar. That’s fine. She doesn’t try to sell herself as one. But, she does have to deal with a relatively limited area to sell herself in, and that is the “folksy, woman of the people” niche. People expect outrageous statements out of her, and she delivered on this one. Why? Because, as you so aptly pointed out, the concept of Hillary being the VP candidate this time around had already been dismissed by Obama the man, Hillary, and finally, Obama the campaign because Hillary said NO. As for your contention that I’m not intelligent when it comes to politics, perhaps you should ask yourself, why are you reading what I write, and why are you bothering to comment if I’m such a bleeding idiot?

      • You have answered the second part of that question already… because you are an idiot.

        The first part of the question… because you decided to put Sarah Palin’s name in a headline saying she was overestimated… so it is obvious to me you are just like many other virtually unknown yappers out there…. using her name to generate some interest in yourself and get hits on your site.

        Why bother mentioning her if she is so irrelevant? You decide in an article on Obama to take shots at a strong Conservative woman who, if you recall, was a V/P candidate for the Republican Party. What was the friggin point of doing that? Jealous? You are just a bitch and wanted to take a shot at a woman too? Why not Jarret or Napolitano… both lefties and wackos. But, no… you had to take a shot at Sarah Palin.

        That is why I think you are a low life and no better than the far left media out there that does the same thing.

        So, take your so-called genius theories and thoughts and stuff them.
