So let me begin with your last rant first. That may be all I have in my tank tonight.
The reality is that when you open your mouth as a public figure in this country, whether you're an actor or politician or whatever, you open yourself up to opinions from all sides. Frankly, I think Sarah Palin is a cash/power grubbing idiot. If her mouth is open, something stupid is coming out. She has no one to blame but herself.
I can tell by your response you don't think much of the lady. And that's fine. Some do, some don't. But why the venom? Really, "If her mouth is open something stupid is coming out"? Number one, I doubt you have heard every word she has ever uttered. Number two, no matter how much you may dislike her, she has to say some things that are not idiotic. And I just don't agree with the premise that if you take a stand and voice your opinions that you should open the floodgates of hate and anger that divides us, that you yourself said you dislike so much. Please understand, I don't agree with everything she says either. Could I vote for her if she ran? You betcha! (pun intended) But so far she has not announced her intention to run, and at this point it's not likely she will I suspect. But my gosh, the things that her and her family have been subject to are crazy stupid. The left, and the MSM have been beating her up pretty bad for a couple of years now. I imagine they'll start to back off some because she is no longer a threat.
She is just one example of many many conservatives who are ripped to shreds by the left and the MSM. And yet it is conservatives who are branded as hate mongers and intolerant and idiots, and on and on and on.
I am plenty guilty of going after Obama here and on other sites. So I include myself in my chastisment. Shame on us.
OK, I could go on but I'm beat right down to my socks. I'll try and get back tomorrow and visit the other topics you brought up.
