    Sarah Palin is toast. When Murkowski was governor the folk started posting his picture on a stick stuck into a pile of dog scat. They have plenty of dogs in Alaska. And lots of hiking where the dogs hike too. Lots of scat. Very creative political commentary. Well, Mudflats showed the first picture on a stick of SP stuck in dog scat. I am starting to love Alaskans.

      and you'll notice that she is still here. We want her to run next time, if it's God will. The more irrational hatred we see thrown at her, the more we know that she's the genuine deal. So keep up the smears and the lawsuits and the spittle flecked rants, and we'll just have an easier time selling her to the moderates who Mr. Obama is,at this very minute, selling down the river.

        that in a brand of Christianity that calls on women to be submissive to their husbands, Sarah seems to be the one who "wears the pants" figuratively speaking in the family, and Todd seems to be the "yes dear" type going along with what she wants. If he put his foot down and said, "Your place is here in Alaska taking care of the kids," do you really think she'd do it?

        So which moderates, exactly, is he selling down the river?

        I might find it amusing for Palin to run in 2012 because I think she will get about 35% of the vote. However, I speak entirely for myself not for "us." And in a certain sense I'm not sure if having a candidate from a supposedly major party show so badly is even in the best interest of a healthy democracy.

        As for what God's will might or might not have to do with any of this, I presume that to be a question for theologians, and not for politicians. To assume that ANY outcome of a political contest is or is not God's will is, IMHO, awfully presumptious. If God is omnipotent, then everything that happens is God's will; otherwise it is entirely up to us. Either way, invoking the will of God is simply a means of refusing to take responsibility for one's own opinions and actions. And hiding behind God is simply cowardice.
