Her Perspicacity is Astounding. Also

Sarah Palin had some input on the State of the Union address yesterday. I have read a transcript of her "interview (read: opportunity to get semi-coherent talking points and cheerleader statements out)" with Hannity. You can get a copy of the entire transcript with a link to a youtube video of the "interview" here, (the Mudflats) but for an example, I provide the following series of words of the English language:

Hannity: First of all, your initial reaction.

Palin: Ohhh, I think there was a lot of lecturing going on tonight versus inspiring the American people and independent politicians who were sitting in the audience waiting to hear some acknowledgment that there has been a disconnect between the White House and people who are expecting more from our government – more in terms of empowerment of the people not relying on government to meet all of our challenges, but empowering our families, our small businesses to fix the problems that we’re facing today.

Notice that she says that 1: the people want the government to do more by 2: having the government do less. She doesn't have any follow-up questions to answer, just softball leads for her to attempt to answer to get her diatribe out there.

Whenever she speaks, I'm more and more glad she's not our VP.

You can't be serious! Although I am not particularly a big fan of Sarah Palin - and am highly doughtful of her chances (not to be confused with capability) of being elected to the Presidency of the U.S., I nonetheless agree, in totality with her statement regarding the disconnect between the White House and the people, in addition to what she said regarding what the government should and should not be doing, In respects to the betterment of (the American) people's lives. liberals/progressives like you, in my opinion, have little, if any idea, as to the true benefit(s)of self-empowerment - and "...not relying on government to meet our challenges...". You are obviously incapable of affectively managing your own life - instead, needing others (including government)to wipe your butt and change your diaper. How sad! I hate to tell you, my friend, but most other people, unlike you and your liberal, weak kneed buddies, and thankfully so, do. In fact, the polls clearly reflects exactly that. Try reading them. But, than again too, I can only assume (from what you are saying)that you also need government to tell you what those polls mean. Talk about disconnect - in your case, from reality. WOW!

I'm curious how it would be "inspiring" for the President to address Congress by stating there's a "disconnect" between the WH and the people who want the government to do more by doing less...

The rest of the Anonymous's comment warrants no further response.

I can see why Anonymous prefers to hide behind anonymity. His choice is to be crude and vulgar rather than use well-thought arguments. He must be a republican. Pointing fingers, saying "shame, shame" and using sarcasm -- the weapon of the Weak. Come on, Anonymous. Come out of the closet and show yourself.

Sarah Palin would be far superior to "Crazy Uncle" Joe Biden as VP.

I cannot stand Palin. Seriously she is the best woman the Republican Party could come up with? I understand their wanting a "gimmick" to show that they are as "progressive" as the Democrats, but really, what has she done for the Republicans? Ok, let me put it a different way: What has she done that is positive for the Republicans?
