    Let's get some balls back into the Executive Branch! Tea Party 'ers get the GOP to make Romney pick Sarah as VP.

    Can't you just see her reaming out Biden in a debate. She'd go up one side of that fool and down the other!

    Palin as Romney's running mate would be a gift from the gods to liberals.

    Vic, honestly, this proposal demonstrates a near total disconnect from reality.

    (Not necessarily how she'd do in the debate. Depending what your rubric was, you might score her over Biden, sure. But the notion that she would help Romney win the election? I'm afraid that's nonsense.)

    I like Palin, but, her image as an actual political contender has been ruined by leftist Hollywood, the liberal MSM, and her own actions trying to appeal to the television audience as a "celebrity."

    She should be considered for the RNC chair, but nothing more at this point, IMO.

    Sounds like it's time for Vic to go down for an afternoon nap?

    Sarah had her moments but now they're gone. I voted for Sarah the last time.

    Two wrongs don't make a right. (pun intended)

    Romney lost to McCain, Palin is simply lost.

    For better or worse, Sarah is damaged goods.

    Sarah brings out very strong emotions. I've seen liberals just about froth at the mouth just talking about her. Unfortunately, HarlDane is right, she allowed herself to be marginalized with humor and misogynistic treatment from the left, and she is irrecoverably damaged. Most Americans still think she said "I can see Russia from my House." Heck, some around here still do.

    I'd love to see her as the RNC chair though.

    Amazing how that crap sticks. As an example, Gore never said "I invented the internet."

    He said he co-sponsored legislation that made a project developed by the military and academia widely available to the public. (Which he did, for which GT users ought to be glad.) But that's not simple, mean and funny -- so "I invented the internet" becomes the meme. And all the reasons to REALLY oppose him got subsumed by BS and no one gets convinced of anything on the real facts.

    Same thing has happened to Palin --- partly because she got thrown into an arena for which she wasn't prepared, partly because she managed to turn a strength -- plain speaking -- into a weakness by not being ready for a hostile press, partly due to misogyny, but mostly because we like our political "analysis" simple, mean and funny.

    Bottom line is that Palin now is not only NOT viable in a national election, she would be a tremendous liability.

    I think if they had unleashed "Sarah the Barracuda" she could have kicked arse and taken names. But she was convinced to be the demure and polite female, and let it roll off her back.

    That's the difference between a Tea Party promoter, and Margaret Thatcher comparisons after her second term as president.

    Choices, they change the future.

    I don't see him winning Romney the election either. Doesn't seem to fit Romney's button down image either.

    SNL will already have it's hands full with Mormon skits. No need to bring Tina Fey back into the fold.
