    Our problem is the MSM that gives her coverage.

      Where have we gotten pointing out that Palin, O' Donnell, Angle, Miller, etc. are "morons". Nobody cares. It seems that when we win against these people it is because we are able to persuade the public that their ideas are bad ideas. O'Donnell is an exception because she was so out there. I wasn't sure if I was watching a TV political ad or listening to a Buddhist sermon. But that's an exception.

      I think we should stop pointing out these people are morons and starting pointing how destructive their arguments really are.

      she strikes a potent sensitive nerve with people that have half a brain.  Using the paradigm of the conservative view of the world she is a success beyond all expectations because she has taken advantage of our dysfunctional political process,  the freedom of speech that allows TV stations to spew whatever message they want with no checks on whether there is any factual basis (however one defines that) and her celebrity cult like status.

      In many ways she is a modern tent faith healer that travels around saying whatever she thinks her audience wants to hear collecting the gate receipt on the way out town.  Viewed as an enterprise I have to say I admire her placing herself in the position of governor and using her innate ability to take advantage of a previously unavailable opportunity created solely by John McCain. Through that prism she has done quite well for herself and is a success on almost any basis of measurement.  She should not be underestimated nor laughed at.  Don't get me wrong I truly dislike her and what she stands for.

      •  She is a clown train wreck and a ratings plus (2+ / 0-)

        and TV is only about ratings now.

        In the olden days, news was a loss-leader for a network, but it was something they were proud of. Now, it has to make a profit and that means Beck and Palin.
