psssst...Chris, off the top of my head: Nigeria. {{cringe}}



U.S.A.At least we're not Nigeria.

Yeah, and hey, our media talking heads get paid millions of dollars to spout uninformed opinion!

"Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own," Palin said in her statement. "They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing districts used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their First Amendment rights at campaign rallies, not with those who proudly voted in the last election."


She finally hired a speech writer and followed the script. Good statement!

Sorry, the use of targets came up in this thread as not being the same as crosshairs, and you never said anything about them, I know.

You are right.

Another person used a teleprompter yesterday as well:

Posted on Sarah Palin's facebook page;
I don't think you get to say" blood libel" after you accused a Jewish Congresswoman of wanting to put your Christian child in front of a "death panel."

Like someone we know who posts on these forums, Palin just can't quite keep her foot completely out of her mouth..

The more bad press the better. I hope Republicans can do better than present this very stupid woman as a presidential choice.
