Anon Is Losing Our Palin Debate, As This Post Makes Clear By Presenting Views Of Folks Who've Known Palin Up Close, An Experience Anon HAS NOT HADHow sad Anon, that you must play the fool by ACTING like you really believe that Sarah Palin has no shortcomings. I realize your duty to stay loyal to any fellow conservative, is what forces you to maintain your silly defense of the woman. And don't forget that Steve Schmidt is the man who suggested that McCain choose Palin, and after Sarah was chosen, he was with her, for weeks on end, behind the scenes, so he's an expert on the real Sarah Palin, and YOU ARE NOT.And Mr Schmidt has said that after he personally got to know Palin extremely well, he was wishing that it wasn't too late to select a different VP candidate because he "found it truly frightening that Palin would be a 72 year old man's heartbeat away from the Presidency, if McCain was elected." Also, the woman who helped Schmidt prep Palin for her VP debate, lifelong Republican, Nicolle Wallace, told her boss, Steve Schmidt, on Election Day 2008, that even though John McCain was her friend, she just couldn't vote for him, since it would be so reckless to put an ignoramus, like Palin, close to possibly becoming President.So Anon, since you basically only know Palin's public, carefully scripted, persona, there's NO QUESTION that the personal experience in being with Palin, that Mr Schmidt and Ms Wallace had, in seeing what Sarah is really like, off camera, CARRIES MORE WEIGHT, than what you JUST WANT TO BELIEVE about Mrs Palin. And BTW Anon, I wasn't making "an angry observation", as you labeled it, but merely a sad, but very accurate one, about how folks like you, are so easily taken in, by anyone who has views that are close to yours. Plus, any person, like Palin, who BELIEVES that she is "part of God's plan", not only demonstrates with such an off the wall belief, that she is seriously unbalanced, but also, must be incredibly arrogant for her to be thinking that the God who she believes to be the universe's "All Powerful" and "All Knowing" Supreme being, would really require a mere human, like her, to achieve HIS plan.Really Anon, you can actually keep a straight face while defending someone who is such a nut, that she thinks the Master of the Universe needs Palin to carry out HIS plan?! That belief is solid proof that Sarah's mind lives in Loopyville!P.S.-BTW, it's not that I hate Evangelical Christians, because there are some very nice people in my wife's family, here in Ohio, who are Evangelicals. I don't hate them, but hearing them spout some of their bizarre beliefs, which science disproved long ago, makes me feel sad that such delusions are a barrier to a country making progress.However, as strange as some of the beliefs are, which are held by Evangelicals here, I've still yet to meet any Evangelicals in Ohio, who take their beliefs to such an extreme, that they think they are "part of God's Plan", the way that a certain crazy woman up in Alaska does, unfortunately. I really like what my late brother said after he read about Palin believing that God has made her part of HIS plan. After he stopped laughing, my brother said "For Pete's sake, a genuine Supreme Being couldn't act so supremely stupid!"LovesWomenFrenching "It is a rare thing indeed, to ever observe in nature, anything so beautiful, as the sight of 2 pretty women, with one engaged in slowly sucking on the tongue of the other."(firstname.lastname@example.org)
With the loony liberals and dopey Democrats engaged in full time self destruction, the next few weeks should be very interesting. With a sure to lose issue like trying to keep Kavanaugh off the Court to the exclusion all else, going so far as to risking the careers of of red state Senators in states where Trump won by urging them to vote NO on cofirmation shows how totally out of touch they are. Time to stock up on popcorn, Cheetos, and Mt. Dew...it's going to get very entertaining!
Anon, you & others here, all miss the point (Deliberately, I think) that I've NEVER defended the behavior of Maxine Waters, but instead I've consistently said that the woman is an idiot.I'm a liberal who is BRUTALLY honest in describing Maxine Waters, but those on the Right just can't seem to be as honest in discussing Palin's shortcomings.) (Or, even being able to admit that the woman has any shortcomings, at all.) Since I'm a liberal who attacks Maxine Waters as being an embarrassment, my beef with you conservatives is that you never display that same sort of honesty, by simply owning up to the plainly obvious fact that Sarah Palin was deeply unsuited to be a VP nominee in 2008. Any reasonable person realizes that Sarah was so seriously hamstrung by her almost total lack of knowledge concerning national & world affairs, and also by her lack of awareness about how America's national government functions, that it was simply reckless for a Presidential campaign to select such a person for a position which makes that person holding it, next in line to become President, if the current President dies or becomes unable to fulfill the duties of being President.It's simply stunning, and sad, to see people who seem to be smart enough to know better, insisting on claiming that Mrs Palin was even an "acceptable choice" for the VP slot, if the word "acceptable" is being used as it's commonly understood.I feel embarrassed for any conservative who just can't admit that Steve Schmidt, after he got to know Palin well, was correct when he concluded that the idea of Palin (or someone just like her) being just an old man's life away from suddenly becoming President, is a very scary idea, indeed.But there's little doubt that the stubborn defense which many folks mount for a person as unqualified as Mrs Palin being chosen for such a high position, LARGELY stems from the tendency of many conservatives to automatically FAVOR an idea, JUST because liberals have objections AGAINST it.

Anon, you just said this about me: "YOU seemingly believe that women should ONLY get ahead by first marrying a powerful man, which I find to be somewhat antiquated."Of course, NOWHERE on LLV Forum have I ever expressed that absurd belief, or have even given the slightest sign that I accept that obsolete concept.And that's why neither you, nor anyone else, can point to a single thing that I've ever typed on this forum, which would provide any backing for your claim.People often rightly object, when other folks put words in their mouths, which they never spoke.Well Anon, it's unfortunate, that you sometimes resort to crediting a debate opponent as supposedly harboring beliefs or intentions in his mind, which aren't there, but that are actually things which you've invented, because it serves to make your own position seem stronger, if you portray your opponent as accepting crazy notions, that you, yourself, just made up.It's sad Anon, if you aren't able to debate honestly without needing to resort to MAKING UP fictional beliefs, that you claim as being in the head of a debate rival. But I really shouldn't be too surprised that you do that, since you're a Trump supporter, and Donald's habit of MAKING UP THINGS about the beliefs or intentions of his political opponents, is one of Donald Trump's tendencies, that IMO, is one of the man's more objectionable traits. And my religious friends and relatives, would quickly point out that it's also a violation of one of the 10 Commandments, which concerns not bearing false witness against your neighbor.But at least, your Trump-like behavior would surely bring a smile to the face of your man, Donald, because that old saying is really true: "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." And as those who know Trump well, have said, one thing that really wins over Donald Trump, is subjecting his ego to flattery.P.S- BTW, concerning the absurd idea of women needing to be married to powerful men, to get ahead, 2 of my favorite g/g performers, Riley Reid and Dani Daniels, certainly serve as very strong proof that the idea is bullshit, since they both got to the top of their profession, while being single women.
