    The only people I know that spend any time talking about Palin are democrats. I'm an admin on a right leaning politics and history board and her name never comes up. I think we all stopped talking about her when she resigned.

    She is the best thing this election year for the Democrats.

    Absolutely, minimus. How about you guys run her as your GOP candidate in 2012? Pretty please?

    I don't like her. But hot's hot.

    I think any "affect" she may have is very quicky offset by her daughter's (and future son-in-law's) very visible personal drama... which is, unfortunately, reflective of Ms. Palin's parenting skills... or lack thereof... in the eyes of many

    I wonder if this would have been an issue if Palin had been a male.

    I beg to differ about the only people talking about Palin are the Dems...she can't be in your face at a rally with Glen Beck and tweeting about Dr Laura and be the subject of ONLY the Democrats. Maybe the reason all the GOP don't talk about her is the smart ones don't hang out with those who support her and maybe they want to pretend that she really doesn't exist.

    I won't diss her parenting skills because nobody has perfect kids...and as for the same application being applied to a man, well, then again, a man couldn't get up on stage and wink and flirt and play up the 'hot' button and get away with it either. I actually found the constant negative reference regarding Hillary Clinton's appearance as disturbing as I did the GOP buttons that focused on Sarah Palin being a Hottie. It seems as a woman candidate, that the focus on intelligence, leadership and experience was lost in the never ending comments about their looks. sammieswife

    Good point, sammies. Any man who got up there and simpered like Palin would not be taken seriously, in fact he'd be the butt of a few jokes. (Pun not initially intended, but what the heck.)

    Her femaleness has also gotten her some right-wing media protection from the big bad 'gotcha' media, (like Katie Couric trying to blindside little Sara by asking her what she reads).
