Craziest of them all: Hey GOP, take the Palin cure
You have to read this batshit crazy piece to believe it.
Palin can more than keep up with the Democrats in appealing to voters' emotions. Hardly anyone could be more blue collar than Palin, out on the fishing boat with her hunky blue-collar husband, Todd. Palin is "View"-ready, she's "Ellen"-ready, she's Kelly-and-Michael-ready.
A Palin "war against women"? Hah! Not only is she a woman, she's got a single-mom daughter, Bristol, to help with the swelling single-mom demographic. On social issues, Palin, unlike Romney, has been absolutely consistent. And let's remember that most Americans, whatever their view of choice, disapprove of most abortions.
Gay marriage? Palin opposes it. But she is also a strong advocate of states' rights, and I'm betting she'd be fine with letting states and their voters grapple with the issue on their own. Remember that all of America didn't swing toward approval of gay marriage on Nov. 6. Three reliably blue states and their voters did. If she were smart, Palin would recruit a member of her impressive gay fanboy base — yes, she has one — to help run her campaign. I nominate Kevin DuJan of the widely read gay conservative blog HillBuzz, a Palin stalwart since 2008.
Furthermore, looks count in politics, and Palin at age 48, has it all over her possible competition, including Hillary Rodham Clinton, who will be 69 by election day 2016 and who let someone talk her into adopting the flowing blond locks of a college student, making her look like Brunnhilde in a small-town Wagner production. Men love Sarah Palin, and she loves men.
And for the record, Hillbuzz makes Worldnutdaily look marginally sane.... well, not really, but you get the idea.

6. That's like telling them to gargle with broken glass because of a sore throat.
Romney lost because the likes of Sarah Palin (Bachmann, Cain, Santorum) painted him into a small right-wing corner. CariBoopsie would make the corner microscopic.

7. I think Cain, Santorum, Gingrich were in the mix...
... because Romney wanted to take the presidency and wouldn't have a chance in the primary against a sane and semi-moderate R.
