    •  She got so used to using personality (8+ / 0-)

      and charm, that she seems to believe it's more important how she says something, using winks and folksy phrases, that the substance of what she's saying became unimportant, a nonfactor in her estimation.

      •  that's been working for her pretty well up until (0+ / 0-)

        the last year.  She's been skating by on her looks and her quirky charm all her life.  It got her through school, got her a good looking husband (not that I'd consider him much of a prize), got her a medium size political career.  The problem doesn't last.  By the time you get into your forties, people start requiring a little substance behind the cuteness.  When you start making appearances on a larger political stage or have national exposure instead of the folks you grew up with who think you're adorable, you must have more to fall back on than that what-ever-it-was that got you this far.  More is required.  She hasn't got any more.  And she doesn't KNOW she doesn't have it.  After all, everything has been fine up until now...anyone who critisizes her is just jealous, or wrong.

    •  Schmidt was the mistake they made (0+ / 0-)

      "The statement you are suggesting be released would be innaccurate."

      I understand that Sarah Palin must be an extremely obnoxious person.  But I thought the people who ran campaigns were professionals who can work with difficult people and get them elected.  Schmidt had to know he was going to anger this particular client with his reply.      

      That this is coming from a GOP merc is shocking.  I don't understand how he got into that position.
