    Palin just doesnt get the reason people went after her in the way they did not go after Hillary Clinton or Caroline Kennedy is that whenever Sarah Palin opens her mouth she sounds like a complete idiot. Caroline may you know a few times and Hillary has that cackle, but the rate of idiocy that came out of that womans mouth in just a few short months was astonishing.
    THATS why she was treated differently. As far as the question, what if she was Obamas running mate........Obama never would have picked an idiot like that so its a moot point.

    No matter what one's opinion may be on Palin (and this thread was not intended as yet another Palin discussion), the doc is actually getting some legs and garnering interest because of it's general implications about the effect/power of the media among other things . *sigh*

    Everybody, including the writer is afraid to utter the REAL culprit.

    The fault, dear Brutus lies not with the stars.......

    Commercial mainstream media has SEVERAL times tried to do in depth coverage of important issues. Unfortunately the OVERRATED and UNDER CURIOUS public learned how to turn the channel.

    Think about it. It goes all the way back to when Ed Murrow jumped to CBS television after WW II and was the most famous newsman in America, he almost was thrown in the dustbin because nobody was watching his in depth reporting of issues on See it Now. CBS had to quickly come up with the cheesy chat show Person to Person to justify keeping the man employed!!!!! Twice the American public watched him interview such rocket scientists as Zsa Zsa Gabor and Liberace on Person to Person as ever watched him deal with issues on See it Now.

    Look at the ratings differences between American Idol and PBS' Frontline or Nova. Why is that? What's with the claim made by the FAT, DUMB and LAZY American public that the mainstream media is "failing them".

    Be honest and put the blame where it really belongs.

    Indeed. "Does the media respond to the public or does the public respond to the media" is more of a process as opposed to being a singular event.

    We'll see where it goes and ends up.
    EDIT: Most everyone agrees the public's dumbed down.

    Palin
    As soon as the women walked onto the stage and received a standing ovation she became a THREAT to the Left Wing Loon Establishment that is the reason the left Wing Media CRUCIFIED her, some say she was treated worse than Jesus because she is an Idiot, who on this earth could be more of an Idiot than Al Boob Gore & John Fonda Kerry, A Moron beat them both.

    THE IDIOT SARAH PALIN WILL BE BACK, YOU ALL KNOW IT.

    "some say she was treated worse than Jesus because she is an Idiot,....."

    Regarding the Dumbing Down of America, Your Honor, I rest my case.

    Very christian of you, phony!

    Didn't know an idiot could run a state(probably the best run state in the union).

    I don't like my governor because of his policies, but I don't think he is an idiot. I know you don't like her because she protects the unborn and doesn't bow down to the butt****ers, fine we all have different opinions. But to say she is an idiot just shows your ignorance.

    I don't know why you and fogbuster argue, because you are both phony *******s.

    Borrowing from SNL here a bit:

    Let me be perfectly clear. I would do everything in my power to help Sarah Palin become the Republican Nominee for President in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think she is an excellent spokesperson for what the Right Wing Conservatives stand for.

    I implore all Americans to think of Sarah Palin as the FACE of Right Wing Conservatism.

    When you see Palin's face, immediately think "Right Wing Conservative". When you hear the term "Right Wing Conservative" I want everyone to immediate picture Sarah Palin's face.

    Please, God, let there be MORE Palin interviews!!!!!!!! :D

    For everyone:

    What mainstream national news broadcast(s) do you watch most frequently:

    Jim Lehrer
    CNN
    CBS,NBC,ABC (one,all,whatever)
    Fox
    BBC

    If you chose one specific answer,what most attracts you to that channel and/or broadcaster?

    Is there one (or more) that you despise,and if so,what are your reasons?

    How much do you rely on TV news as opposed to internet sites?

    ** Just a mindwalk,enjoy :)

    Though she added plenty of fuel to the fire some of the way she was treated by the media was inexcusable. Obama even said lay off the family attacks and her motherhood. She had barely uttered a word before the attack hounds were digging up anything and everything they could find. I don't know how anyone can deny that. And she is right; a democrat would not have been so relentlessly bombarded. Biden got pass after pass after pass.

    You know, , it's kinda, you know, um, you know....:rolleyes:

    So ripping her kids, and alleging that her own down syndrome child isn't her own, are things well, you know, um, you know...

    The reason why Palin was so viciously attacked by the left, is because she punches holes in their ideology, and platform, of special needs, baby killing, discrimination, etc. Palin is a self made woman who ascended from obscurity to become governor of her state. She chose life over a vacuum, and preaches personal responsibility & smaller government. She goes to church, shoots guns, and presents a huge risk to the moonbat message of "you can't do it unless we help you".

    Say what? Are you serious? Joe "jobs" Biden isn't an idiot? Charlie please stand up isn't a half a moron? Good clean articulate 7-Eleven indian Joe Biden is what then? I didn't vote for Sarah Palin, but to call her an idiot screams of how much hatred there is for her. People simply lose their minds when you mention Palin, like they do with George Bush. The opposite is true with Obama. Mention his name and they get all tingly up and down their legs.

    Well said young man, there is nothing more Vicious and Cruel than a Left Wing New Hollywood Democrat when they come across a person who they see as a threat or doesn't agree with them.

    Nobody has stirred up the Loons like Sarah did, not even God or Bush.
