So very sorry to vent here, but to post a comment there you gotta go through this whole sign-up process now and it's just not worth it.
I just wanted to take apart the troll logic for a moment.
No qualifications required other than live in the city limits for a year, etc... And the trolls yuk it up.
Um, yeah. That's pretty much the case for every office in America. You know there aren't really any "qualification requirements" to be President either, right? You just gotta be a natural-born citizen and 35 or older. Tens of millions of US citizens meet those requirements. Doesn't mean they, or Levi, have a snowball's chance in a very hot place of being elected to anything.
Palin-haters have the maturity level of two-year-olds. My apologies to those currently going through the Terrible Twos.
The implication of course is that this means being Mayor is no big deal, therefore Palin is no big deal, etc... Heh. Sure, Levi. You just keep telling yourself that when you get a total of two votes on election day.
I'm sure way back when Sarah Palin was, ya know, four or five and her Dad was teaching her how to skin a seal she was thinking, "Better get my bonafides down for the reality/travelogue show that I'll do someday." Right.
Now, I'm sure her schedule is far too packed to go hunting or fishing every day, especially over the past few years since her political career really ramped up, but the idea that she wasn't raised to know the outdoors and that she never hunts or fishes is patently absurd and easily disproven, so shut your PDSing traps all ye who hail gossip in Vanity Fair articles as the gospel truth. (Wow. That was a long and possibly grammatically incorrect sentence. Grammar. Pffft.)
I sent this clip to my parents, and my mom sent it to all of her friends. I might actually talk her into watching the show:
God: Judeo-Christian principles and, yes, how they have applied to our system of government. Guts: Those intrinsic things that we feel down in our inner-most being; the things we know are right, and the courage to defend them. Sarah Palin: The name speaks for itself.

If you write me, please mention something about the blog or my name so I know you're not spam. Thanks!
Disclaimers seem to be fashionable these days, so here's mine:
If you think that anything on this blog is in any way connected to Governor Palin herself, you're nuts. These are all my own stupid opinions. Palin probably doesn't even know I exist, nor does she care.
There, that should do it.
Oh, and don't assume that my posts from a year ago reflect the exact same opinion I hold now. I don't have time to go back and update every time I change my mind for the one or two people who are going to click on that post in the future.
"Notice how they’ll accept anything except a (wo)man who stands alone. They recognize (her) at once . . . . There’s a special, insidious kind of hatred for her. They forgive criminals. They admire dictators....They’ve got to force their miserable little personalities on every single person they meet. The independent (wo)man kills them—because they don’t exist within her and that’s the only form of existence they know. Notice the malignant kind of resentment against any idea that propounds independence. Notice the malice toward an independent (wo)man." - The Fountainhead
