Poll question: Do you think Sarah Palin is on drugs, out of her mind, or acting?
I think she's more fun now than the Three Stooges


Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. I think every Repuke is on drugs.
Xanax, tranquilizers and/or painkillers. The real hard stuff.

3. My perspective from Alaska...
She is crazy, but
Not THAT crazy, and
She does come from the meth capital of Alaska.

She started crazy, was driven insane by the media spotlight and vanity, and has taken to meth because Rush Limbaugh wouldn't help her get more than her fair share of prescription drugs.

Although my wife thinks she just must have been kicked by a moose.

near the nuclear button scares me.

7. Nah, not more fun...
That's an insult to the 3 men I admire the most. Moe, Larry, and Curly were paid to act like idiots.

Sarah's just an idiot that gets paid by other idiots.

8. I voted "KITTEH" because I've long said the woman is hypomanic
and needs to be on drugs but will never get there because she's in such deep denial.

Hypomanic people have boundless energy and are full of plans and are often a real joy to be around until you realize that energy is poorly directed because they can't focus and those plans are never seen through. In addition, they tend to turn on people who start to see through them and realize all this stuff.

Hypomania would explain much about her life. The sad part is if it had been recognized early, she might have been put into treatment and would be a very different person with very different children.

9. I think she's stupid, but here's a differing opinion...

Sarah Palin Is Not Stupid

Skeptoid #160
June 30, 2009

Today we're going to delve into the minds of those who actively promote misinformation, political oppression, terror, conspiracies, and anything else that detracts from the public good. What drives them to do so? Are they right in their own minds, or do they know that what they do is wrong? More importantly, what should we know and understand about these people? I'm going to go out on a limb and start with a concept that may seem shockingly politically incorrect to some: I'm going to disagree with the popular perception that Sarah Palin is nuts.

Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin, but first with the understanding that I don't know any more about her than you do; I've never met her either; and I didn't vote for her. Stupid people don't tend to attract contributors, managers, supporters, and electorates. If she'd exhibited stupidity on the Wasilla city council, they probably wouldn't have elected her mayor. If she'd exhibited stupidity as mayor, they probably wouldn't have elected her for a second term. Her appointment to the Oil and Gas Committee by the governor was probably not because she'd behaved stupidly. Finally, stupidity probably does not characterize most successful bids to run for governor of one of the United States. Does she exhibit an almost robotic and uncritical point-by-point support of the Republican platform? Yes. Is she undereducated for her position? Possibly, her bachelor's degree is in journalism. It's arguable that she's demonstrated a clear disdain for, and illiteracy in, science. She gives every indication that her religious beliefs and her party guidance determine her priorities. But welcome to reality: That's the way a lot of people work, including a lot of people on the other side of the political aisle.

If you call yourself a critical thinker, ad hominem attacks should not be the extent of your criticisms of those in whom you find fault. Show me one thing Sarah Palin has said or done that's "stupid", and I'll show you something that's perfectly rational for someone with her religious and political convictions. It may be that you simply disagree with her convictions, and you probably have very good reasons for doing so. But if that's the case, don't just say "Sarah Palin is stupid". That's kindergarten talk, and it makes you look bad, not her. Understand why she takes the position she does, then reveal the faults in that position.

My point today has nothing to do with Sarah Palin, or with anyone else. It has to do with a lack of critical thinking among many people who consider themselves skeptics. A lot of prominent people are dismissive of science: Celebrities, politicians. Many of us tend to dismiss them right back as irrational or nuts. But this demonstrates exactly the same kind of shortcutted thinking that we're accusing them of.

10. She has a terminal case of arrested development
Edited on Mon Mar-21-11 06:56 PM by Raine
seriously. It's like she never grows up intellectually from being a tweener. I honestly think she's incapable of educating herself and learning anything new. :-(

edit: changed one word

13. But why should she if she could get away with just coasting along?
I mean, she has an audience who wants to hear her and a willing media to give her voice air, so what would be her reason not to?

I agree that she is incapable of educating herself and learning anything is new. She has been made used to this pampered existence which lets her off the hook intellectually and she'll go on as before, saying stupid stuff but still getting air time.

I just turn her off...

Lee reminds us, We must regulate government sleepers
God, I hope he runs in 2012. We need his kind of common sense.

You betcha; I will go out on a limb here and predict Palin/Mercer in 2012 (Or Mercer/Palin). The only wild card is, what if Victoria Jackson decides to run? Then we will be confused.

stupid teabaggers from some of their cash.

She should profusely thank fate each night before beddy-bye, for providing her with this opportunity, because there are likely many middle-aged teabagger/cougar females who can spout the same word salad nonsense, sprinkled with folksy inflection, and they would never get paid even a thin dime for their time and efforts.

20. She is a product like the Snuggie or Denny's or Goodyear Tires - anything can be sold
a rule of salesmanship is that if you introduce a product 16 times to a potential buyer they will buy. Infomercials (count the references) live off of this.

She is a creation of our bubble news operations. They can sell anything.

29. I really think she is out to MAKE Cash.
Edited on Mon Mar-21-11 10:40 PM by AsahinaKimi
She quit her job as Governor of Alaska to make Cash. She got on Fox News to make cash. She is doing the speaking circuit to make cash. She had a book published to make cash. The woman is typical Republican, greedy and out to make as much money as she can. Run for President? Is there any profit in it?
