Sarah Palin is the perfect candidate for Republicans.
Edited on Sat Jun-04-11 12:59 PM by kentuck
She is attractive and dumb as a rock. But most of all, she knows nothing about governing. She would need to be told what is best for the country. And the Republicans have oodles of "advisers" willing to advise her on the best direction for the country, just like they were with Reagan and Bush, Jr. All she needs to do is follow orders. But that coud create a small problem for them. Will Sarah follow orders? She has the right tone about freedom, liberty, free enterprise, strong defense, etc and all she will have to do is what they tell her to do. Then she would be the perfect candidate. The last thing they want is an intelligent, independent thinker. They might actually do something that is in the interests of the people.

1. I think she pops off at the mouth too compulsively to be handled by anyone
She would also get bored with the job very quickly having to do all the meeting of dignitaries, and the traveling and the ritual protocol. And her presidenting would seriously cut into Todd's motor sports.

2. The trouble with Sarah
unlike previous dumbos like Ronnie and GW Bush, Sarah is the true loose canon. According to people who have worked with her, she doesn't take anyone's advice,
is unable to keep on track and has the propensity to veer off in unpredictable directions without thought of the consequences. Not to mention the fact that she doesn't seem to understand the meaning of "doing your homework" where it comes buckling down to study to issues of history, economics or politics. if anything, I think she is the republican party's current nightmare. The party itself is split in several directions: the old time moderate "real" republicans, the Tea Baggers, the evangelicals and the Loonies and crypto-celebs (Sarah seems to fit this category). At the moment, to me at least it looks as if it "every man/woman for her/himself" where this bunch is concerned.

7. Totally agree -- she isn't Stepford enough
She believes her own press and won't walk lock-step with them. Independence and free-speech, no matter what kind, is dangerous to them.

4. WHAT IS WITH HER SPEECH CADENCE?!
Her voice rises and falls at all the wrong moments. Its like she can't even speak a correct sentence, putting emphasis on all the wrong parts. She speaks like a stripper who surprisingly found a $50 bill in her garter belt.

5. All the things that make her attractive
to certain males--especially those in powerful media and corporate places. The little girl, whispery "stripper" voice you so accurately
nailed with its up cadence signifies submission while at the same time being pretty manipulative at the same time

6. Excellent observation...Notice:

The part when she says "Riding his horse through town", her cadence is consistently emphasized in all the wrong places. It makes my ears bleed.

8. Sometimes a dog whistle is just a dog whistle.

9. I'm not sure Reagan belongs in that group.
Palin and bush jr are genuine dimwits. Reagan was dangerously wrong on a number of things (and one of our worst presidents, by my lights), but I just don't think he was "butt stupid" in the low-IQ way that Palin and bush are. You will recall that Reagan served two (full) terms as governor of the most populous state in the nation, compared with Palin's half-term as governor of a deserted area and bush's governorship in a state set up so that the governor is the 4th most powerful politician and the legislature only meets every 18 months.
