    Regarding Game Change, I can’t say it any better than Andrew Sullivan:

    Anyone with even the faintest grasp of Palin’s reality – including former close aides like Frank Bailey – understands that she is emotionally unstable, paranoid, vindictive, self-destructive, religiously fanatical and clinically deluded. Her “wonderful mothering” led her to take a tiny child with Down Syndrome and parade him in front of the cameras as a political prop, and later hauling him out half-naked at night to show off to fans on her book tour. None of her children has made it to college; one was a teenage vandal, another a teen mom. A man who lived in her house, says her children had to raise themselves. She quit office in mid-term because her vanity and rapacity were more important to her than public service. The victims of her vicious career lie strewn all over Alaska. Anyone faintly aware of reality also knows that John McCain was as cynical, brutal and expedient a figure as anyone to run for president – and that Palin’s selection was an act of such grotesque vanity and cynicism that it instantly disqualified him from the presidency.

    With regard to the Catholic Church in the UK, may I suggest finding a copy of this week’s “The Now Show” from BBC Radio 4 (it’s online and it’s a podcast). The final segment is entirely devoted to tearing down the Church for its hypocrisy for the way they treat the gays.

    Hey, I have just about as big a crush on Julieanne Moore that is allowed for queer boys. BUT why is it that anytime Hollywood spoons us some pathetic drivel we slurp it up like emo vampires. I’m sure Ms Palin is in a fetal position from all the millions she raked in on speeches and book deals. How quickly we forget just how much she loves queers. Why I’m sure gay marraige would have been her first priority as vice president in ’08 and President in 2012. why I bet that little maverick would even adopt a queer baby.

    I know some folks around here give their adoration to Andrew Sullivan, but he’s a self-absorbed and self-loathing gay man who clearly feels other homosexuals fall into predefined groups.

    He knows nothing more about Sarah Palin than we do; that is, whatever the media has told us and how they’ve presented her… She’s not always a bumbling idiot as we’re led to believe. Furthermore, we always say how Fox News portrays good Democrats in a bad light, but I can assure you all Palin gets the same treatment from most of the liberal-inclined media outlets.

    She’s a normal person (like all politicians) who was thrown into the lion’s den; she’s not going to act perfectly and speak without flaw. And yeah, she rambles sometimes, but that’s what Sean Hannity wants, so she gives it.

    MIKEH – Well said!

    Anybody who thinks Palin is a “noprmal peerson (like all politicians) who was thrown into the lion’s den….” needs to revisit her vicious, hateful, self-absorbed, egotistical, ignorant, bigoted rhetoric. Let’s start with yesterday’s explanation of why she thinks Obama is a racist — a new low in whackjobbery.
