    Amusing rather than hateful, but still oh so true.

    First step in the ‘rebranding’ process….

    “It’s like in Proverbs,” Harbaugh said. "Where there is no vision, people perish … " So… Palin and Paul in 2016

    If you don’t normally enjoy the cartoons he draws, why do you keep reading them? To find something to b!tch about?

    Palin and Paul are a recipe for disaster. Paul for his intentional blindness regarding the consequences of his economic policies (though I will give him credit for trying). Palin because she’s simply as dumb as a bag of hammers.

    I think Ms. Palin would make as good a president as the guy sitting on the barstool next to me. She’s attractive, and she can get a crowd moving, but what to do next will scare the living crap out of me.

    I remember my similar concerns with the candidacy of GWB. I was assured by my friends who were his supporters, most of whom allowed he was a bad choice, but they did show their confidence that his advisors would keep him from sending the country down the sewer. We know how well that turned out, and I fear the same result with a Palin presidency.

    At that time, I said I hoped I would be wrong, and I’ll say it again now. I just don’t think I will be.

    Palin?? Hah, you guys crack me up! She is done as a politician, and is struggling as a celebrity.

    I watched the reporter walking beside Michelle Bachmann yesterday and someone quipped that there are not enough fact checkers to check everything she says.

    You asked, so here goes. Again, one person’s opinion only.

    GWB spent $74 million before the first vote was cast in the Iowa caucuses. My position was that anyone who could be that spendthrift would empty the treasury before his term was up. At the time, I said I hoped I was wrong.

    I also said that if I was a terrorist and I knew that there was a simpleton in the White House I would be much more likely to feel emboldened enough to strike. Again, I said I hoped I was wrong.

    I can’t tell you how history would be different with Gore or Kerry in the White House, but I can gurantee things would have been different, and I don’t think that statement can be proven wrong.

    I was not a fan of either Gore or Kerry. I just felt they would do less damage than GWB. Given the damage caused, I still think this is a good call.

    When people tell me how awful Obama is, I challenge them to look me in the eye and tell me Mr. McCain (or now Mr. Romney) would have been a better president. It’s been five years, and not a single person has taken me up on it.

    I don’t “know about speculation”. As a doctor, I have to be able to read people quickly and accurately. In health care, you can be the best doctor who ever existed, but if your patient has no faith in your knowledge and abilities, they will be much less likely to get better, regardless of how properly they are treated. As a doctor who has a ponytail that goes to the small of my back (I harvest it every 18 months or so for Locks of Love), I recognize that I have to be much more capable of knowing how to relate to people who are not used to (or trusting of) my appearance.

    It is this sense that I have actively worked to develop over the decades that allows me to understand who I’m dealing with, and has worked for me much more frequently than not, and this is what I use to evaluate Ms. Palin.

    I hope this helps to answer your question.
