    Another wasteful, sad shame courtesy of Sarah Palin's rhetoric.

    Re: REPUB – You are disgusting! I can't even BELIEVE You would say that. WHy don't you talk to her about getting shot IN THE HEAD, and see how that works for her.

    I am appalled.

    Re: Adorable Kevy – What the F does this have to do with Palin? You are a liberal loon.

    She's a few lettuce leaves short of a tossed salad…..



  13. 13

    She not only allowed the cold-blooded murder of thousands of little Iraq & Afghanistan children, but also let hundreds of thousands on American veterans live on the streets homeless under bridges..

    VEGGIE HEAD VEGGIE HEAD VEGGIE HEAD VEGGIE HEAD VEGGIE HEAD….

    what she means is "fuck you bitches I now have other ways to make lots of money!"



  16. 16

    You stupid ass conservatives coming on this site to spam with your bullshit posts are scum.



  17. 17

    It's sad to see someone as gifted, humble and charismatic as she is be connected to a State with an average IQ of about 31.



  18. 18

    Wishing her all the best on her recovery, whether I agree with her politics or not.

    Re: REPUB – She has a bullet in her head. What's your excuse?

    Re: JennyJJJ – Look up Palin's "Crosshairs" political hit list - the one she then removed from her site the very day Giffords and others were shot. And then get back to me.

    Re: Adorable Kevy – Are you kidding the man who shot her and killed those other people was bug f*&k crazy. He can't even be tried. As much as depised SP rhetoric had nothing to with it.

    In all reality the video tells alot and her announcement is not surprising. Her statements are mostly short single or short word rehersed sentences. I think her doctors and state party officials finally convinced her and her husband that she could not serve the people of her state in her present situation. I am glad truely happy she has recovered to this point it is time to walk away with the man she loves and heal.

    I commend her for the struggle she has had to face and for working to over come it, but it definitely saddens me that there is not much focus ever put on the OTHER innocent people that died that day (not saying she doesn't deserve focus, but just wish they'd do more for the others) . it is truly sad that famous people or people in power always over shadow the common folks…. RIP to all that died that day.

    Re: Voiceofreason1976 – Insanity isn't the same as not knowing certain things or being able to function on some level. He was a student and insane, for example. He didn't just pick Giffords supermarket rally by coincidence or out of his a$$. The rhetoric and tone in Arizona at that time as year ago was very much about gun loving Tea Partyiers "targeting" certain Democratic opponents. A rival candidate of Giffords, in fact, ran with ads in which he was dressed in guns and paramilitary outfit. PALIN created a "crosshairs" list of those to "target" (on which Gifford was listed). PALIN had the crosshairs chart on her site until the day of the shooting when she (PALIN) removed it suddenly and replaced it with a generic patriotic image. One doesn't do that unless one knows that the crosshairs target image listing Giffords was NOT a good idea. There are NUTS and the insane out there. That's why PALIN rhetoric is and proved to be so dangerous and irresponsible.
