14. I have to disagree

Of course this is merely my opinion.....I think,in every phase of her life,beauty pageant contestant,politician/Governor,author,TV personality/pundit,she's been nothing more than a puppet......The public face of someone else's agendas...

I mean,with the command of language and vocabulary she displays,I just can't buy into the notion of her actually authoring a book....I think,on television,she just mouths words others place in her narrow little mind....I believe with every fiber of my being that,as Governor,she was under the total control of nefarious others,most notably her husband,reTodd,who was himself being paid to be her "handler"....I think if ANYone could be even loosely described as clever,in that family,it would be reTodd....

I'm convinced that had she been left to her own devices,no one would be discussing her on any substantial level....She'd be enjoying the same amount of fame that I do.....None!...

I won't dispute her being a grifter,but she isn't the ring leader,by any stretch...She's every bit the tool of monied interests,that Boy George Bewsh is......

23. No, she something more basic than any of those things.

She's a con artist. A flim-flammer, a grifter. She chatters herself right through people's wallets and property. As a woman in aanother time, she would have been a courtesan, not well-born but trading on chatter and winking at the right people.

40. Maybe Todd. But that's it.

Quiting the Governorship, and striking while the wing-nut iron was hot, was a decision that benefited her and her family ONLY. She rung up what? $15-30 million dollars (last I heard it was $15million and that was 3 years ago)?

The luck of having McCain drive a dump truck full of money up to her front door was what put her on the national scene - like you said - as a puppet.

But she was a cunning grifter all on her (and Todd's?) own. The only difference is, without McCain (and HIS handlers) she would still be grifting penny ante $50 dollar a day per deims, construction supplies and tax payer-paid vacations for her kids all on her own.

68. Thank you. Lack of raw intelligence doesn't mean she's not ambitious.

She may have stumbled in to national prominence, but she was always going to excel in some place in life because she was out to win and be the boss of whatever room she ended up in, even if she didn't scruple about what means she used to make it to the front of the line. Ambition doesn't require book-learnin' or even core logical functioning about public policy. But there is a kind of intelligence--people smarts and the ability to tell crowds what they want to hear--that guides her political and career moves. She's no rocket surgeon, but do not ever dismiss her as merely dumb or as Todd's muppet. She may not know algebra, but she knows exactly what she's doing.

with Americans today. She's spent a good portion of her life in the public eye - mostly in beauty pageants, losing them - so she knows what buttons to push for each audience, which words to use, over and over and over again.

44. Even Roger Ailes has lost most interest in her,

because instead of following his instructions, she stupidly assumes that she knows what she is doing and can make better tactical decions on her own. He warned her to keep her mouth shut afyer Gabby Giffords was shot, but she had to defy him by making and posting that bizarrre, self-serving video. FOX seems to use her much less than at first--at least it seems so, since I don't see anywhere near the number of articles I used to see about the dumb stuff she spouts on FOX.

(I don't watch FOX, so I only knew what she said when it got reported.)

You know, the GOP has it's share of swindlers. There's Frank Luntz and Bill O'Reilly, for example. I think those two guys are evil, but pretty clever. But people like, say Bachmann and Palin seem to be genuine believers of the things they say. They are gaffe machines.

41. When she was first identified as

Senator McGoo's running mate, I wrote an essay about why I thought she was selected and what I thought of her alleged qualifications. And I was correct on all counts after only seeing her debut outing. All I saw as far as "qualifications" was her anatomy. I further developed the hypothesis that she and Bachmann were both "placed" in office in their respective states as examples of how women would function in office... inefficiently, subject to flights of fancy when actually attempting to think... very much like what we see playing out on a grander scale with the Teabag society attempting to show how inept the African-American president would be/is by denying him the right of office by refusing to legislate because he did win office. Now that he has done so twice, I speculate that this faction of shills will default on the debt ceiling as punishment for the re-election of the person they despise and would do anything to thwart his legacy of anything but inept and as a failure. Since we voters showed them up, we are going to be punished, mark my words, it's their only train of thought now, you can see it in their eyes and the tone of voice, the smarmy bastids.

Stories about relationships around her background resulting in significant levels of antagonism, especially public relationships, and all of the hopping from one milieu to another, appear to suggest a personality disorder known as Borderline Personality.

Much as I have loathed her, from the moment she was presented to the American public as a viable option to occupy the Oval Office by a campaign so cynical that it thought it could just present an alternate "candidate with a vagina" and scoop up a shitload of disaffected voters, I have to admit one thing.

She has way more money in the bank than I do.

What this means (if anything), I don't know. As Bill Maher put it, she's so dense that light bends in her vicinity. Shit, I feel dumber just talking about her...so why is she rich while I and so many others are struggling? Does being a whore really pay that well?

I never knew....
