I was hoping the bear would attack a honey covered Palin tied to a tree. That's what I call a happy ending, my kind of 'morning in America'. You betcha.

Even though I despise her politics, I kinda got a boner from that ad. I'm ashamed.

She's right. This is our "mourning" in America.

I dislike her as much for who she is as for how well she does what she does. That's a VERY effective ad. Devoid of any context, content or real information. It trafficks in explicit and subtle emotional cues to achieve its desired impact.
Ugh. Still, I wouldn't piss up her ass if her guts were on fire.

she's going to run and if things continue the way they are she has a really good shot at winning.
boehner is going to eat obama alive if he doesn't grow a pair. hopefully things will be different in two years.
Amazing how some video montage, well edited voice over and the appropriate music can make anything, including this narrow minded Bitch look like something she's not, a political leader. Politics, it's all about smoke and mirrors.
Because narcissistic empty-headed crazy people going rogue are just what this country needs!
She is effective at provocatively stringing together clichés her rabid base wants to hear--and earning big $ by spouting them--she won't last long on the campaign trail. As a presidential candidate she would get as far as Christine O'. The Republican establishment won't let it happen, since they know what a disaster she'd be in the general election.
I would love it if she ran. The primary would be a bloody mess and it would split the Republicans from the TP. Can you imagine what would happen if she runs against Newt? He would eat her alive.

Only going to appeal to those who already support her. Since the repubs and teapeers preferred policies historically lead to higher unemployment (and under-employment) and bigger deficits and less services at the local level, a fair number of her supporters will be crying "foul" come 2012 and looking for somebody else to fix the mess.

@Mr West, she really says. Does it mean she cannot read?
@Adam Mathias, interesting, chaotic, but sad to see her run for the nomination.
Question: Would majority of US citizens like to live in the country where she is leader? I still believe the answer is they don't.

Did I see the same African American guy in that add 3 times? We're not racist, see?!

If this idiotic woman gets elected I will leave the country!
It is a very effective ad, I can imagine my family being gleefully cowed by every image and beat on the screen. I agree whole-heartedly that Palin would never make it through a Primary in one piece, and that the Republican Party would be torn up in the process. It's gonna be fun!

Further to MattB's post - another very good question is - Can anyone in their right mind outside the USA imagine her as the most powerful leader in the world?
Posted by: Mark B | Nov 4, 2010 1:13:42 PM
never underestimate your enemies. that is a great commercial. if rob ford can win the race for mayor in toronto using nothing but catch phrases - so can palin! "stop the gravy train" - you betcha! (now someone please ensure that this person does not end up with the keys to the nukes please ...)

Ironic that she uses a bear in the ad as she opposed giving the Polar Bear (Ursus marinus) Endangered status as it may affect Alaska's Oil Drilling future.
If this jingoistic, trigger-happy muppet ever becomes the US President, it will be time for all the sane people to relocate to Mars...
This girl is all frosting and no cake. Isn't she sweet?

The 2010 election established that Sarah Palin has now passed her sell-by date. She couldn't even deliver her home state for Joe Miller. Her darling "mama grizzly" Sharon was whupped in moderate Nevada after being ahead in the polls. The witch was burned at the stake in moderate Delaware. She was the kiss of death in California. Sure, some of her "endorsed" candidates won, but they won in safe districts where she made no appearances. The more visible she was in a candidate's campaign, the worse that candidate did.
She has become the Al Sharpton of the GOP -- polarizing and annoying noise from a clueless narcissist who any sensible candidate realizes is political poison.
It would be such fun for her to run.......she's as near illiterate as makes no difference.......
Think of all those questions she will fumble with Chaney/Rove having a hand up her ass to make her mouth move.
