m$nbc...sarah palin 'fires back' at Al Gore
on global warming.....

really? is sarah an expert on global warming?

has she done extensive research?

does she know ANYTHING about global warming?

what exactly are her credentials?

sarah should be firing back at grade schoolers, someone on her own level...

the media should NEVER utter her name in the same sentence as Vice-President Gore.

3. Yeah, there's an even match.
Palin's squirt gun against the Gore of Gibraltar.

5. Well, she *can* see the weather from her front porch!
IMO, she is setting herself up for a talk show/commercials/endorsements. I doubt she is interested in anything as important as holding office anymore (any office). She can and does make a whole lot more money doing what she is doing now and doesn't have to answer to anyone. She's not a concern.

6. i don't think her ego will allow her to stop short of telling other people how to run their lives
Edited on Thu Dec-10-09 01:10 PM by spanone
and i think with the media, we dismiss her at our own risk.

21. What I am saying is I don't think *she* is interested in office ...
I seriously believe she is not interested in any office at all, but rather knows she can make more money, have more status/power and not be held accountable as a talk show host/pundit.

I don't doubt that there are those who think she should be the next president. I just don't think she does. And I think she is playing them and the media to make some cash.

25. And I suspect she'll play the victim, quit the race, blame the media ...
... and use it to generate book sales.

I don't underestimate her, I just think her intentions have nothing to do with actually holding office and everything to do with making herself rich and a celebrity.

But, we will see.

7. her arguement is going to be that she can see polar bears mating from her back yard
therefore there is no global warming.

9. SHE is not the problem...it's that the media has the gall to equate her with Mr. Gore
it's not only setting her up WAY beyond her abilities, but it dismisses the years of work Al Gore has put into his opinions.

12. Excellent point
the media has gotten to publishing her shit simply because she's become controversial and will generate hits to a web site no matter the inane chatter coming from that moronic brain.

It's like Paris Hilton, she's got nothing to contribute but it drives people to watch the show, buy the magazine or click on a link so it's "news".

8. I remember reading an article years ago in which scientists wrote about their
accalim for Gore who evidently really dug in, then documented his positions. They praised him as someone who deserved credit even though he did not hold a science degree.

Contrast Going Rogue. She didn't even write the book about herself?

Case closed. Maybe she will catch up when the maps are changed.

11. Perhaps she could take him on in a debate
Which would give him the prime opportunity to steal her thunder by saying at the beginning, "You can call me Al!"

19. Well, see, in Alaska it is cold. All Sarah P needs to do
is stick her head out the door and she can tell you unequivocally that it is cold out and if there was global warming it would be warm. See, you betcha' and it ain't very warm so all that book learnin' that Mr. Gore did doesn't add up to a hill of wolf pelts. So how much clearer does it have to be for all the elitist, left leaning, intellectuals before they see that Sarah (I'm the rogueiest rogue there is) Palin has Mr. Gore pegged and that she herself is the expert? Sheesh!

23. spanone, she can see
snow from her front porch!!!1!!one!!! What part of "department of climate expert issues" do you not understand? If Sarah can see snow, it's cold, and that's that! Where does Gore live? Tennessee? Can he see snow from his porch? I didn't think so. See how many flaws in your argument? Although from your note I don't think she should be firing at grades schoolers like that. That's another thing though. Carry on.

24. Alaskans are the canaries in the coal mine
as far as global climate changes goes, but Sarah was/is too dense to notice.
