    i am totally offended that Mr. Oliphant thinks that anyone who likes Sarah Palin is and illiterate idiot. There are a lot of highly intelligent people who think she has the right idea.

    You’re right, mbeth. There are many intelligent people who can act like illiterate idiots.

    You might think she has the right idea or not, but the way she has carried herself leaves a lot to be desired imo. Remember, this woman abdicated from her position as a governor in Alaska. Supposedly it was, at least partially, to protect her family from the negative attention of the media and the strain of the political life. THEN, first thing, she jumps head first in the debate on healthcare - one of the most vicious topics today - with some of the harshest and most divisive claims to date. That is the LAST thing you do if you want to protect your family life and avoid partisan attacks.

    Feel free to disagree - but to me, this means that Sarah Palin chose to ditch her job as a governor of a state in order to get more national attention and avoid potentially embarassing probes, and then lied to everyone about why she did it. She might have the right idea, but that does not mean she’s the right person for it.

    @mbeth01- the cartoon makes no mention that everyone who likes Mrs. Palin is like that - just that some are.

    she quit the position she sought and voters entrusted to her for personal and political gain. That should bother even her fans.

    What often gets overlooked is that she was found guilty of some ethical violations by members of her own party in Alaska and had to return taxpayer money for improper per diem claims, for improper use of state funds to pay for family travel absent an official purpose, and one more I can’t think of right now.

    If she’s your hero, then you admire selfishness, graft and improper use of taxpayer funds. Guess you should admire a lot of other guilty pols too !

    I suspect MBeth would like to think of herself as one of the highly intelligent people who think Palin has the right idea, since she says she’s totally offended that Mr. Oliphant thinks that anyone who likes Sarah Palin, is an illiterate idiot.

    Yet, she seems a little shy to admit it directly. Are we a little shy, MBeth01? Or just embarrassed.

    If the offense fits, wear it!! It looks just like you!

    If the woman can’t construct a viable compound sentence correctly, ignore her.

    If the Chinese CCommunists want to give her $300,000.00 for her first effort as a professional speaker, there is something really wrong with this picture.

    I do hope the GOP is dumb and narcissistic enough to put Palin up for President. May they could get Vitter, the prostitute’s John from Louisiana, to “run” with her!!!

    Just the leadership the GOP deserves!!

    No Bob…..Palin/Sandford in 2012. THERE’S yer dream ticket.

    BTW, this woman also ran up tens of millions of dollars in debt as the mayor of a town with a population of less than ten THOUSAND.

    Anyway, I won’t be buying her book. Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy absurdist fiction as much as the next guy, but not when it’s written by someone whose command of the English language makes Bob and Doug Mackenzie sound like Mensa candidates in comparison.

    mbeth01:

    “i am totally offended that Mr. Oliphant thinks that anyone who likes Sarah Palin is and illiterate idiot.”

    “Tis better to be quiet and be thought a fool than to pound your keyboard and be proved one.”

    Or was this a satire of illiterate Palin supporters, in which case I must agree with you?
