Fox, CNN and MSNBC reporting that McCain campaign staffers are saying that Palin didn't know what "NAFTA" was, couldn't identify the nations that make up North America (thats the USA, Canada, and Mexico), and thought Africa was a country.

HOLY COW this woman is ignorant.

Well, I knew she was clueless, but I had no idea it was that bad.

We dodged a bullet on Tuesday.

This ignoramus could have been one sick old man's heart beat away from the Presidency!

Is that what those "anonymous" sources inside the McCain camp are saying? The same people who probably never really liked her in the first place and are looking for a scapegoat. You would have to be pretty dumb to think she is that dumb.

Did you hear her interviews?
Its not a far stretch to believe she didn't know these things.
90% of the people at my work wouldn't know that shit. seriously.

Did you ever think about WHY the media makes Palin look bad? I recall them trashing and slandering some other candidate who's name starts with an R. Palin is a Reagan type conservative that is not corrupt, did not take bribes, and is not involved in any secretive groups like the CFR, so they are naturally afraid of her becoming vice president. THAT is why Palin was slandered in the media. The woman is not stupid.

She also energized McCain's campaign. She helped his campaign, and the media is saying she caused it to lose as an excuse to continue to slander her to prevent her from running for president. You know why McCain lost the election? Hmm....

The economy...

The war....

The Patriot Act...

Bush....

All the other huge mistakes by Bush....

There were TONS of reasons why McCain lost the election, none of which were Palin. McCain almost gained my vote by choosing her, but he did not because I knew I would be voting for him not Palin lol.

She went before AIPAC and pledged her lifelong support for Israel.. then said the only flag in her office is an Israeli flag. .. would Ron Paul or Reagan do that?

The previous slams were from the left. This new nonsense is coming from the neocons. Apparently both of those groups see her as a threat.

You can't convince folks here of that though. After we watched the press destroy Ron Paul, I hoped we would have learned to recognize disinformation campaigns.

Come on guys, this is just abusive. Whatever happenned to morals? Uneducate folks have a human concious and feelings. With SNL, and now this. I can not imagine what that women must be going through. Is MSNBC,CNN, and FOX out of material so they keep going to this nonsense? It was the McCain campaign's fault for picking her. If they wanted to be taken more seriously, they should have picked Lieberman.(Not that I would support it)

QFT. It's absolutely astounding to watch this stuff in action. She'll likely not receive a vote from me ever, but I certainly don't hate the woman and I'll certainly have respect for her if she still stands after this vitriol shower she's been taking since her VP campaign was announced.

No, I don't hate her either! And I didn't participate in the unfair, sexist thumping everyone gave her. Nor did I attack her knowledge on the issues ... much. But man, she sure came across on TV as a bimbo! She was the female equivalent of Romney! Shit! This poor girl got sucked into thinking she was headed for the big leagues when everyone could see what was coming from a 100 miles away. Carville said it was over months ago and damn if he wasn't right. She is not dumb, she's just uneducated. Romney is dumb! And now I hear he's the head of the RNC???? Talk about living in a bubble!

I don't agree with her politics or her religion but she seems like a nice person. I'd probably get along with the first dude at the races! He's lucky to have her. She didn't gain any female Hillary supporters but maybe 1/5 of men-for-Hillary. I'm sorry the McCain camp treated her this way but just the fact of his choosing her said more about McCain than anything about her. I think she will continue to be well-loved up there in Alaska as she deserves to be.

I wonder how many people on here accusing Palin of being dumb are actually a Governor of a state, while simultaneously raising a family with a disabled child, and getting million dollar offers for book deals?

It's easy to point fingers and play armchair critic. How many of you ever sat for a TV or radio interview? I work in radio, and every now and then I get a brain freeze, which leaves me at a loss of words--the true definition of dumb BTW.

I agree--maybe she isn't the brightest light bulb in the box--but we have a country falling to pieces and the luxury of wasting time is gone. So why are people, that are supposed to be the leaders and/or participants in the Revolution to save our nation, wasting time and brain power on this trash? Palin's done, let's move on to something constructive.

The GOP wants to base the future of the party on Palin.

Frankly, though I don't hate the woman and I think she is perfectly inept enough to be a great governor.


In Florida, Jeb Bush was governor for 8 years and he did a great job. Because he was inept too. If, for example, a monster was to rise out of the sea and try to eat Miami, it would take Jeb a week to find out about it, and by that time the locals would have solved the problem. That was Florida under Jeb Bush.

I don't think Palin should be the future of the GOP. You will see the corrupt GOP insiders change their plans depending on how well Obama serves the plutocrats. If Obama does well, then expect another walking corpse to be set to run against him in 4 years. If we try to nominate Ron Paul again (hopefully he is still around but we have to mentally prepare for the possibility of otherwise) or someone like him we will get the same shafting we got in 2008. Hopefully by then we have enough PCO and captains in place to kick the assholes out of the party.

Well well, it looks like you and her have something in common, YOU left out Belize, Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama to name a few.

The McCain camp was infested with neo-cons. Palin bent backwards to adapt to their soundbites and talking points, but never fully bought into them. So naturally, they're scapegoating her for the defeat, poisoning the less neo-conned right well so they can build up their next neocon protege (Romney, Jeb Bush, whomeever). The one strategic advantage of Paul having not run third party is he has thereby avoided getting blamed for the Republican loss---the Palin bashing indicates they would have done the same to Paul if he had acted as a spoiler.

Why are we still talking about Palin? Forget this paper Princess. I never heard anything good come out of her mouth during the election, she's a dumb as hell Fred Thompson conservative (at best), and she blew apart any shred of fiscal conservative she claimed by running up enormous GOP bills on shopping sprees for her appearance.

Not everyone hit by the media is some kind of hero. Ron Paul was cut to shreds because of his beliefs. Palin was just made fun of by the paparazzi for sitting catatonic for interviews, barely able to show more knowledge about the world than a carrot. She wasn't truly attacked. She was merely good for filling the "celebrity" hour of the obsessed media by serving as the center of an idiot chronicle no different than the latest doings of Britney Spears and Madonna.

for real?

I have a hard time belieiving SARA is THAT DUMB.

I think its more than likely the GOP is trying to tarnish her to prevent her from seeking high office again..

This woman used to be considered libertarian and said Ron Paul was cool and a good guy..

The last thing the establishment needs is SARA giving credibility to a guy like Ron Paul.

I have to agree. She has the HIGHEST approval rating out of all United States governors. She kicked out corrupt Republicans in her state. She also seems to have basically the right ideas about getting government out of the way (though not as consistent as Ron Paul). While I don't think she is a savior, she was probably the best out of McCain, Obama, Hillary, Edwards and Biden.

Don't buy into media propaganda. It is 90% Democrat and the other 10% is neocon.

She is corrupt for refusing joining the McCain ticket. Ron Paul wouldn't even endorse McCain and instead endorsed third party candidates.
