    It looks like her family and the sideshow she brought to the political scene briefly is now history. They have moved on to greener pastures: reality television, where its luckily easier to tune them out.

    Even respected conservatives won't touch her with a ten foot pole. (See Dick Cheney).

    And yet, on the fringe of the right wing she is still an object of fascination and an enduring symbol of... something.

    From the first time I heard her speak, its been pretty clear that if you added 50 pounds and 20 years, no one would pay any attention to her.

    She's never said anything original; never demonstrated an ounce of sophistication - politically or otherwise.

    I'll admit she's a hottie in that librarian-porn sort of way. Is that it?

    A better question is why do liberals despise her so much? What is their fascination with trying to destroy her and her family? Especially if like you all say, "She's so stupid!" and "She's not worth listening to."

    Clinton and his Johnson.

    Sorry your thread started on a fail and went downhill from there,

    I'm not asking what liberals think of her.

    I'm asking what the appeal is.

    OP didn't ask "Why do liberals hate her?" but rather "What is the appeal?"

    :rofl:

    I care about my country enough to comment when there is something wrong with it.

    What does Palin have to do with that? Is she responsible for the woes of the country?

    If you have to ask you will never get it anyway so why bother tell you again and again and again! Get the picture! Better question would be is why do you hate her so much?
    It's akin to talking gun control with a rabid liberal anti-gun person. Que beating head against wall!:whistling:

    Liberals despise all Conservatives. She was attacked in droves because she was the VP nominee. I think there was additional resentment toward her because she overplayed the whole "victim of the lamestream media" thing a bit too much.

    I don't think it was overplayed at all.
    And yes, I'm well aware of liberals hatred of conservatives.

    So funny. Over a half a dozen responses and the only thing anyone can say that's good about her is that libruls hate her.

    If that's all there is to her, no wonder she's just a punchline today.

    His first sentence was "she's honest."

    That is and independent sentence (notice the period at the end?) that answered your question.

    Deliberate ignorance is no excuse.


    ETA, sorry for being abrupt, I realized that he used a word in that sentence that liberals are unfamiliar with.

    Good job. That should fill your Palin bashing quota for the day. But you should maybe post a few more. You might get overtime.
