    Well Sarah Palin spoke and apparently earned almost double the national minimum wage, good for her.
    She also got the opportunity to put the stake in the ground, to tumultuos applause, from 600 die hard Republicans that she would consider a 2012 Presidential run.
    Now this is the lady that failed to get elected as VP never mind President.
    Can see Russia from Alaska ( only from where she never set foot) and that means she is internationally politically astute. Oh I forgot she is listening to a lot of advisors/ think tanks, and learning!!
    Wants to replace, rather outlaw the use of a Websters dictionary word " retarded" with cognitive dvelopmental weaknesses, Yes Mrs.Palin that means those people are retarded!! And unfortunately there are many more uses of the word " retarded" that have nothing to do with Cognitive or developmental weaknesses in a downs syndrome child.
    For example:my personal lack of a university degree and pivate cash resources "Retarded" ( in this context slowed down or nearly prevented) my development ( cognitive ability) to become a CPA which I did achieve.
    You have high moral standards and other admirable qualities but if you are selected to run by Republicans for President in 2012 I am sorry to say you ensure an Obama victory as President.

    Maybe I was too preoccupied with the Super Bowl today because I didn't see any video of the size and intensity of the crowds at the convention in Nashville. I googled 'tea party convention' and saw a picture of what appeared to be the normal nights quantity of cars in a parking lot of what I think was a Motel '6' at sundown, no joke.
    I heard portions of the speech from the former governor from Wahzoo, Alaska. Impressed with her content, hardly. Was I more like appalled, but humored,'you betcha'.
    I even watched the others guys network just to hear her interview with Mike Wallace. Look I am really trying to be fair to the point ....what point? Okay I grew out of the cartoon stage over 50 years ago. Nothing has really tickled my ribs like that ever since. Until the 2008 presidential campaign. Nothing really humored me like the cartoons of decades ago.
    Today I watched that interview every time it was aired. Missed nearly the entire first half of the Super Bowl because of it. It has started to air for the fourth time today about 2 minutes ago, so I am hurrying.I want to laugh myself to sleep.
    What a country! Who says we don't have equal opportunity. I even like her more than Gomer Pyle, 'shazzam'
