    Why do many Liberals seem absolutely in fear of Sarah Palin ? They can disagree with what she says or what she stands for. The personal attacks on her and her family are disgraceful. Shame on all "Womens Rights " groups. Most of the attacks are sexist !!:sad-little:

    it is a funny thing to watch what you post on this board. Immediately following a FAUX news story, you get on the board and post about it. Once again though, you are wrong.

    Democrats welcome Paling to 2012, its what WE are anticipating! Palin will destroy herself. What I find amuzing about you is how you run with the ball as soon as FAUX hands it to you.. In this case, it was the MCCAIN CAMPAIGN who called Palins book "A WORK OF FICTION"... maybe you should learn to understand who really wants to hurt her....hmmm?

    Sarah Palin, who only polls about 15% of republicans, and dead last among all potential GOP candidates is only looking to make a few million being used by right wing interests groups. Good luck with that, what happened to her wanting to take care of her disabled child?? Seems to have left that one back in alaska to care for itself.

    McCain Camp Calls Palins book fiction:
    Top aides to Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign hit back at Sarah Palin Friday and Saturday, calling the former vice presidential nominee’s soon-to-be-released book “revisionist and self serving” “fiction.”

    Campaign manager Steve Schmidt, who emerges as Palin’s nemesis in the advance excerpts that have surfaced from her forthcoming account of the campaign, “Going Rogue,” told POLITICO Saturday that Palin's charges about him were made up.

    "It's all fiction," he said.

    With a laugh, the shaved-headed political operative asked: "Why is the bald guy always the villain?"

    Schmidt, Palin writes, was “grim-faced” and “cool,” and tried to pin the campaign’s troubles on what he claimed was Palin’s post-partum depression, and even went to so far as to try and dictate her diet.

    According to excerpts published on the Huffington Post, Palin “took in his rotund physique and noted that he used nicotine to keep his own cognitive connections humming along.”

    “I'm a forty-four year old, healthy, athletic woman raising five kids and governing a large state, I thought as his words faded into a background buzz. Sir, I really don't know you yet. But you've told me how to dress, what to say, who to talk to, a lot of people not to talk to, who my heroes are supposed to be and we're still losing. Now you're going to tell me what to eat?”

    A top McCain strategist familiar with the exchange over Palin's appearance said that Schmidt and campaign manager Rick Davis approached the vice presidential nominee about the matter because people on her plane were concerned about her weight loss.

    "We told her that her health came first and offered to get her a nutritionist," said the strategist.

    More generally, Palin uses the book to note the “jaded aura” of the "professional political caste" guiding McCain:

    "But I did notice... funny things [about the handlers] that even Piper commented on — such as tumbling out of the bus in a pack, lighting cigarettes as they went so it looked like a walking smoke cloud with legs."

    Palin also faults Schmidt for his penchant for profanity, writing that he warned her just before the vice-presidential campaign that “moderator Gwen Ifill is "going to f*** with you."

    "I'm thinking, Why are you telling me this? Last minute... what's the point? And no more f-bombs around Piper, please?"

    According to excerpts from copies obtained by media outlets, Palin charges that the staffers assigned to her by McCain’s team blocked her from speaking to the press aboard the campaign plane. And she asserts that former McCain communications aide Nicole Wallace ‘pushed’ her to do a September 2008 interview with CBS’s Katie Couric that resulted in serious damage to the former Alaska governor’s image.

    “Aboard the campaign plane I was within twenty-five feet of reporters for hours on end. Headquarters’ strategy was that I should not go to the back of the aircraft and talk to the press,” Palin wrote, according to an excerpt that appeared Friday on the Drudge Report website. “At first this was subtle, but as the campaign wore on, [campaign aides] Tracey [Schmitt] or Tucker [Eskew] would call headquarters to request permission, and someone in DC would respond, ‘No! Absolutely not—block her if she tries to go back.’”

    The womens groups are fearful because she IS what they would like to be. And the reason they cant is the lack of credibility. Ms Palin has actually done what other just talk about. Which makes her the actual expert on subjects that the nags only wished they were.

    Also, I find her plain unrefined method of not dancing around the subject refreshing. Nothing like calling what is, is. Unlike Clinton who got confused on the word is.......

    Others are fearful that they will lose their power. Especially conservatives that have forgotten their promises. They need to be very afraid.

    She is the kryptonite to the liberal mentality. Socialists froth at the mouth at the very mention of her name. She is the very symbol of the conservative movement. Someone who stands for freedom, individuality, and life. Everything the liberals/socialists despise. The MSM is working very hard to discredit and destroy her because of this very fact. The AP has 11 reporters researching her book trying to find inconsistencies in what she wrote. Hollywood is coddling that fool Levi Johnston in hopes that he continues to spew hateful, and untruthful things about Sarah Palin to help make her look bad. They like to say she is a non issue, and that she has no chance of winning a national election, or even POTUS, but if that were true would they be trying so hard to destroy her?

    Perhaps her time is not now, but after a full Presidential election cycle of radical communists, economy wrecking legislation, and being force fed the liberal utopian welfare state maybe people will be fed up enough of it to elect her or someone like her. To fix the mess this President and Congress is creating we cannot have a weak republican or a RINO in the white house.

    The truth of the matter is Sarah Palin is a power to be reckoned with. As her father had said when she resigned as governor she is not quitting, she is reloading.

    Sarah Palin. Well recently I was reading about the great journalist and commentator H. K. Mencken and when I saw this thread and comments, I was reminded of something I read about Mencken in one of the pieces.

    see article on Mencken at wikipedia

    I'll let that be my response concerning Palin but then again I think it's fitting in all manner to a much larger construct to begin with!

    Under democracy, one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule and both commonly succeed, and are right.

    I believe that all government is evil, and that trying to improve it is largely a waste of time.

    Hey other side !
    Take your head out of the sand or wherever you have it. I watched Sarah Palin on Oprah and Barbara Walters --I guess they are diehard "right" wing.
    I also saw the comments from the ladies on the view --with the exception of Behar ---even Whoopie Goldberg felt the coverpage by Newsweek was unprofessional and sexist and Letterman's jokes about a 14 year old child geeting "KNOCKED" up by Letterman were gross to say the least.
    What seems to be your obsession with Fox news ??
    Also --It is a shame when decent Americans --Left or right wing are so polically blinded by the truth.
    Other side I give you the benefit of the doubt that you are in fact a decent American ---do not let your political views poison your heart !
    There is absolutely nothing wrong disagreeing with a POLITICIAN --BUT THIS ??????

    Why should I? As a "liberal" myself I am in no way in fear of Sarah Palin. I personally think we dodged a bullet every time she speaks. I read the May Vanity Fair issue and this week's Newsweek and I saw a bit of Oprah's interview. It is clear she has energized the republican party but only based on her looks ( hey she is a beautiful women) What if it was Kay Bailey Hutchinson or Meg Whitman ( on John Mc Cain's short list for VP)saying the same things she did. Probably wouldn't move the needle much. What the republican party needs to do is go back and grab the middle and return to the party of Lincoln. Sarah Palin will only attract the extreme fringe

    Dis-organized Labor,
    A picture for running world that is miss used by a so -called reputable business magazine should anger us all.
    Disagree with Sarah Palin --But this nonsense is way over the top ---I sure The other side would love to see Hillary in the same pose on the weekly standard. I would not. Please do not say Fox news --he is obsessed !!!

    Come to mention it --there sure is a DOUBLE standard !!!

    I think most liberals relish the idea of a Sarah Palin presidential campaign. That's hardly being afraid of her.

    There is much gossip about the Palin/McCain ticket. And I find her story more believable than theirs. The center of the focus was McCain. Why allow Palin to steal the show. So they gagged her for all intents and purposes. The VP should never upstage the Prez, and that is what she was doing.

    What scares so many people is the way she will speak her mind. That honest, not scripted response is what people are looking for these days. They are damn tired of the politically correct, well scripted, no meaning, run around the question responses that we get from those running for office these days. What a breath of fresh air.

    It is funny how during the election, both sides were pushing drilling off shore as policy, but the minute the election was over, nothing. Both sides, not just the dems.

    They have tried that, and lost. The party that stands for nothing, and wants to include everyone will never succeed.

    Regan won people to his side by clearly identifying the problem, and planning the solution, which worked very well. But even he lost ground during the second round in office when he lost that buck stops with me message.

    In the center is no place for tax reform, military preparedness, border control, either have it, or you dont. Those that choose to water down the truth are lying to themselves.

    Then why are they trying to ridicule her at every chance. Why not support her if they are not afraid?

    let's face it, with people getting their news fixes on the internet, magazine sales are suffering. This is clearly to get people to buy based on this picture.
    If Hillary had gams like that, trust me, she would have been depicted in the same way.

    The AP dedicated ELEVEN reporters to "fact check" Palins book. A disgusting smear campaign by the liberal press. (Note they DIDN'T do this with Clintons, Kennedys, or Barrys books).

    And all they could come up with was trivial crap.

    danny boy.
    Why support Palin when ridiculing her is so much fun? I think Republicans ridicule her privately. And I think her "maverick", "rogue", "hockey-mom" persona is simply to easy to make the butt of jokes when juxtaposed with serious issues. I mean really: "Drill baby drill"? Please, tell me how you take Palin or any of the Repusblican leader seriously. Michael Steele, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh. A true triumverate of political silliness.
