But @davymid: all the info you get on Palin comes FROM the MSM, unless you watch videos, uncut, or attend he speaches personally.
Thus the MSM `decides` FOR YOU what you see:
Palin makes a great speach full of facts and convinving arguements.
MSM: not newsworthy 0% coverage
Palin mis-speaks and says "north" insted of "south"
MSM: FRONT PAGE NEWS! 100% coverage

[quote]like yourself and most other liberals, I`m pretty sure that canadian/ european exposure to sarah palin and most other american politics is completely limited to the opinions of people like jon stewart and stephen colbert.

Oh Eric. Dear Eric. While you rail against liberals, europeans and canadians (I happen to be all three), please understand that we don`t form our opinions on Palin from the media, nor from comedians. We are quite capable of listening to her, first hand, and coming to our own conclusions. Personally, I think she`s a vapid bint, who would drive the world into a pit were she in charge. And yes, some of us are rational intelligent adults who are actually capable of forming our own opinions on world leaders. Hell, I`ve never even drank Kool-Aid. Heard of it, never tasted it or even been offered some.

Crazy, I know.

@EricWRN I`m going to have to veto that nazi flame award. The comparison was not a godwin. The fact that the ultimate evil villain of the past 100 years is in fact Hitler allows his comment in the context of his statement.

It should be noted that while the Hitler comparison should be used with caution, as to avoid the Godwin, it is a valid argument when there is sufficient context (e.g. in the use of ww2, or when attempting hyperbole).

As a sub-note, who else could he put in the role of Hitler? Vlad the impaler`s been romanticized by Stoker, Genghis Khan was badass, folks may not immediately recognize McVeigh or Kaczynski. Perhaps Satan, but the invocation of a historical figure trumps that of a mythical one.

Replay down.

"Umm...Ayers didn`t run for vice-president."
Neither did "Joe The Plumber" all HE did was ask an honest question. The MSM SCOURED the Earth to find dirt on him! The liberals actually violated laws to "expose" him. BUT the MSM avoided even mentioning Ayers... ever! Or several other communists, crack-pots and loonies Obama used to hang around with. Not in his "teens" either; I mean after graduation.
Mr Obama ran for PotUS - fyi, eh?

For the benefit of non Americans (and Eric) here`s Colbert`s words:

Mika, you need to buck up...I know you think she has nothing to offer the natl. dialogue and that her speeches are just coded talking points mixed in with words picked up at random from a thesaurus. I know you think at best sarah palin is a self promoting Ignoramus and at worst a shameless media troll who will abuse any platform to deliver dog whistle encouragement to a far right base that may include possible insurrectionists. I know you think her reality show was pathetically unstatesmanlike and at the same time I know you believe it represents the pinnacle of her potential. And that her transparent desperation to be a celebrity so completely eclipsed her interest in public service so long ago that there would be more journalistic integrity in reporting on one of the lesser Kardiashians a.ss implants.

besides, that was just a joke, i still don`t have any respect for sarah palin, i was being dramatic, though the fact that she`s SO hated by uneducated and ignorant leftist sheep makes me WANT to like her. Somebody said it earlier and I have to completely agree that the only reason she`s still around is the attention she gets from the left. I am totally disinterested in her and I wish she would go the hell away.

You award respect based on the number of people that hate a given individual? I take it you have supreme respect for Adolph Hitler.

There`s also something very amusing to me about the amount of Canadians and Europeans who have nothing but pure vitriol towards Sarah Palin. Actually, the fact that so many Canadians and Europeans hate her is the only reason I have any respect for her at all... she must be doing something right that I just don`t get...

@QueenZira: Obama worked on a board with Ayers for 2 years, he let Ayers and his family babysit his daughters, he knew Ayers, personally m-kay? And not when Obama was 8. These things are in Obama`s 2 autobios, not `Palin`s propoganda` m-kay?

Yes The Onion is funny, and I laugh at most of their vids, they`re far more balanced than the MSM. One does get tired of the unending stream of hatred directed at Sarah, at her family and at the "right wing" in general.

"Madest loves to try and troll conservatives, and he`s an obsessed Palin hater.

I beginning to think he might be secretly in love with her and just can`t admit it to himself."

Oooh! Madlibs! Let me try!

"CrakrJak loves to try and troll homosexuals, and he`s an obsessed gay hater.

It`s so DELICIOUS when you just hand me the ammo so readily!

@5Cats-
You answered your own question- partly because Palin is largely behind promoting the idea that Bill Ayers and Obama are "good friends." They were neighbors and colleagues. And while using the label "Terrorist" may be accurate, since Ayers did participate in numerous bombings of government property as a member of the Weather Underground, it is a bit dubious considering not one person was ever injured or killed by their bombs- except for two members of the Weather Underground itself. They were out to destroy infrastructure, not human beings. While Palin had no problem applying the label Terrorist to Ayers (which, as I said, is accurate), she said she "doesn`t know" if people who bomb abortion clinics are terrorists. So I guess her definition of a terrorist is someone who blows sh*t up for reasons with which she personally disagrees.

5cats- what does a washed up 60s radical who coincidentally happened to be at the same Democratic event have to do with Obama? Are you trying to say they were in cahoots waaay back, because remember Obama was 8 yrs old waaay back.

Rather, let`s talk about the pro secession Alaskan Independence Party, whom Todd was recently affiliated with. Don`t you think all the nation`s red blooded, uber patriot Cons would want to hear about that?

Also, just what are you anyway? An expat? A border dweller? Spill.
