why are there so many sarah palin discussions here? from both the liberal types (who i usually agree with) and the conservatives. by the way anniepa i usually agree with what you say and am not trying to be disagreeble - i'm genuinely looking for the reasons about this (i'm incidently from the uk and was assuming that most of what could be said has been said). oh and i know someone made a similar discussion to this a while ago - i'm not copying it's just that there seems to be ever more discussions about her.

Like Spalladino already pointed out, she puts herself in the spotlight frequently, so that is the main reason why there are so many discussions. Palin also seems to a part of the club of people that it seems most people either really like, or they really don't, and that will always make lots of discussions because the two opposite sides just can't reach a middle ground most of the time. During the presidential campaign where she ran with Mccain for VP, that is what first thrust her into the national spotlight, and since then we have had Palin crammed down our throats and so the conservatives are going to sing her praises because she is some kind of icon for them, but liberals, like myself, just cannot help but to regurgitate some of it up and it lands here on mylot.

There are so many discussions here about Palin because the media wh0re is at it again...putting herself in the limelight...first by resigning as governor of Alaska with 18 months to go in her term and offering her standard nonsense statement...and now by apparently offering her services as a fundraising machine for both the Republican candidates (of which she's a member) and the Democrats. Because she's been such a polarizing figure in politics so far there are those who welcome her assistance and those who believe that she would do more harm than good...and those who also question her motives.

that makes sense but i suspect some of the pro-palin guys won't be too pleased with this remark. think you're right though.

Because Sarah Palin scares the hell out of liberals! They do not know what to do with this true conservative and it makes them very afraid, and the more they attack her in the media the more popular she will be with concervivites.

well maybe because i'm from another country i don't see her as scary - just annoying although i suppose it might be dangerous to implement some of her views. she is enormously popular with conservatives though

Which policies would that be? Her policies on bringing spending under control? Or maybe stopping lawmakers from putting pork in their bills? Which policies of hers would scare you?

That is sad you feel the need to ask for forgiveness just for writing your opinion. Are you that afraid of her?

eh? no, not afraid of her, where you get that from? i just wanted to mention up there that i knew someone else had done a similar post a while back.

Because for what ever reason, she seems to be great fodder for critisism, wether one loves her or hates her. It apparently brings people in to a discussion here. The hole mylot "supply and demand" thing I guess. My personal opinion was when I first knew about her was she was a great advocate for her state, stood up to federal intrusion and stood up for her state. I wish my spineless, boot licking governor would do this a little more often. Since the election though, she has more aligned herself with the naitonal republican establishment, a party I have as little love for as I do their counter parts, the democrats.

yep - she seems to bring out emotions in people.

I'm neither a Palin supporter nor a Palin detractor, but I'm bored of it all too. I think the attacks on her family are completely unfair, but I'm tired of all the hubbub. It's almost as bad as the Michael Jackson coverage! LOL
