Most people here know that my position on Sarah Palin is hopeful but with serious skepticism and pessimism. She just hasn't proven herself as a conservative at all, and her eagerness to jump onto the McCain bus, only to be thrown under it in an all too predictable fashion, merely made all of this worse.
Still, she does have a great personality and a sense of humor that could eventually bring her around. Regardless of what you think of Sarah (Sage, this means you hahaha), you have to laugh at this one ...
As for the president, Palin joked that she was looking at a magazine cover of Obama and Chinese president Hu Jinato during an airplane flight. A nearby passenger stated, "Hu's the Communist," she related.If this woman comes forth with a truly conservative agenda (which is unlikely), she's got a shot at winning the presidency. Sadly, I don't see her cult following as being anywhere near as charismatic or enthusiastic as Obama's. She will have to come forth with the kind of agenda the Tea Partiers will like if she's even to have a chance. One thing she does have going for her: both Democrats and mainstream Republicans hate her guts. While that's clearly not enough, it's got to count for something.
And, Palin said, "I thought he was asking a question."
I'll believe it when I see it. At any rate, the quote is hilarious and spot on.
