    Has she inspired anyone to take hostages at gunpoint?

    Al Gore did.


    Don't worry. After the mid-term elections there will be a bunch more conservative women in office that you can all get worked up about.

    Hey, can we re-open my running Joe Biden gaffes thread?

    I've got a bunch of updates for it.

    2 non-sequitors from YF in just 15 minutes. Not bad!

    Hey, let's compare how Palin did in her endorsements vs. how Obama did.

    A couple of Obama's endorsements helped incumbents crawl across the finish line. A couple of them didn't even do that.

    Palin single handedly propelled previously unknown candidates in S.C. & Alaska to victory.

    Who would you rather have campaign for you in this election cycle, Palin or Obama?

    I can't quote it, since the thread is locked, but look at my prediction from last September:

    Let's see how many Congressional candidates want Obama to campaign side by side with them during the 2010 elections.

    I'll bet nearly all of them in tough races will want him for fundraisers, but won't want to appear with him at campaign events.

    That will be the first true sign of how unpopular Obama & his policies have become.


    My only mistake was that it isn't the "first" sign.

    I'll bet Palin's phone is ringing off the hook with requests for campaign appearances.

    Obama's? Not so much.

    Joe Sestak is on MSNBC right now.

    Who'd Obama endorse in that primary?

    Palin has more clout in a Republican primary than Obama has in a Democratic one. I agree with that.

    Chris Matthews covering this story now.

    Palin called the reporters who use anonymous sources against her impotent, limp & gutless.


    She throws a better counter punch than Obama, Biden, or Gore.

    Hey, have any reporters asked Gore for his reaction to inspiring yesterday's gunman at the Discovery Channel?

    Wow, the guy busts his ass to do a major piece on a national figure and it instantly turns into the usual one-size-fits-all pissing match.

    Sorry, my mistake.

    Yeah, he really earned the trust of a lot of sources.

    How many of them trusted him to go on the record?

    Otherwise, it's just another hit job with a bunch of anonymous sources.
