    She actually reminded me directly of the South Carolina pageant girl in the top comment on this thread...how different is "like, such as" from "too, also?"

    Then, with her invoking of racial fear and general mongering of low-thought, high-emotion hate and terror...she started to remind me more of a possible Indira Gandhi.

    Indira Gandhi was snatched up by her father's party, the Indian Congress party, as their candidate for Prime Minister when two of their PMs had died in short succession, largely on the idea that she was meek, apolitical, and would be easy to control. Instead, once elected, she rebelled against her party, quickly strove to consolidate and increase her own power, and, when challenged by a restless public, decreed Emergency Rule which set the stage for massive violations of human rights. Yes, this is the part of Indian history that includes all those fun forced sterilizations of poor people.

    Cautionary tale? I, for one, am glad that Gov. Palin is being thrown under the bus. She seems to like power for its own sake a little too much for my personal comfort.

      Anyone who goes from asking what it is the VEEP does, to suggesting the VEEP's powers should be increased, in less than a week, is FUCKING SCARY.
