    She's aacred cow as long as there's no election at stake and she can bring in the money and voters. But they will be merciless in a primary...I can hardly wait.

      or sensitive to looking like bullying men, like Joe was. (Hey, whatever happened to Joe, anyway?)

      •  True. Their baser instincts, which tell them (1+ / 0-)

        that their women are to be seen and not heard, will take over.  Have we even heard Huckabee or Romney's wife speak?  And the one time the Mrs. Ghouliani-wife-of-the-moment was profiled, it wasn't a good thing and we haven't heard from her since.

      would be utterly fantastic.

      The potential to cause disaffection with women voters alone would be brutal; women who didn't necessarily feel compelled to support Palin would nonetheless be insulted. That alone would be worth the price of admission.  

      Then, there's the 'rogue' bullshit wing, the libertarian crack pot Ron Paul wing, which is just barely hanging on to the Pugs as it is. Every attack on her from a conventional Pug would be one more mark against the Republican Party hierarchy.

      The Rapture Ready crowd? With Huckabee out of the way now, she's the obvious surrogate for the Xtians. Any attack on her will damage that part of the base.


      Try to make it real, compared to what.

        --and I still think Republicans have plenty of time to do their typical overplaying of their hand--I really don't think anyone can beat Obama.

        I've thrown out Virginia's own Bob McDonnell as a credible possibility (in the McAllen vein), but no one but me seems to think they'll run him so soon.

    •  Wow, thanks all for ignoring my massive typo nt (0+ / 0-)
