What is wrong mentally with people that support Sarah Palin, when there are really good and bright candidates?

of the Republican Party who will do a tremendous job instead of making fools of themselves every time they open their mouth.

    Sarah Palin is a brilliant and accomplished person. When you have surpassed her in the area of political savvy, I'll vote for you. Don't be too harsh in your criticism of others unless you have advanced further than them. If you have not climbed the mountain, don't try to describe what's on the other side.

    People who support Sarah Palin say :

    They oppose socialism.

    Yet, all Alaskans get a check from the oil industry for using Alaskan lands.

    Then Gov Palin didn't oppose this.

    Candidate Palin has yet to comment on it.

    They support the American work ethic and oppose handouts.

    Yet, Gov Palin quit 2 years into her term. In part because of the intense media attention.

    Is that what President Palin intends to do ?

    They support straight talk and common sense.

    Yet,the candidate she endorsed for election directly benefited from the same government programs (medicare and unemployment insurance) that he opposes the existence of.

    They also oppose teaching contraception in sex education in school in favor of abstinence only.

    Yet, that very policy proved a failure in her own family.

    They oppose Rev Wright and his bigotry (rightly so) and wonder about the influence he had on President Obama.

    Yet, her own spiritual leader cast witches out of villages in Africa. Really ? Witches ? in the 21st century ?

    Sarah Palin is pretty and has a short easy to understand message. End of appeal.

    No substance,no ability, couldn't clean up the crystal meth problem in Wasilla (a town smaller than a urban high school), couldn't manage a state with fewer residents than Los Angeles and Chicago, has no forigen policy ideas, can't handle Katy Couric but wants to run the Country ?

    Its desperate times when people of such low ability are considered viable for such high responsibility.

    Mitt Romney is an accomplished businessman, a Harvard graduate, and would probably be a good republican presidential candidate. Sarah Palin is someone who became famous after causing McCain to go down in the polls and enabling Obama to be elected... but look, she resigned from being governor of Alaska to go make money from book deals and cash in on that. She preached ultra right wing values, yet her daughter had a kid out of wedlock (not judging her, but I'm SURE Palin would have judged someone else who did). She's a controversial person, nothing more. She spouts "common sense", but you know something? the real world isnt that easy, otherwise anyone could be president. And right now in a head to head vs. Obama, the polls indicate she'd be a certain loss whereas Romney could probably win it.

    Source(s): I'm a moderate.

    lol..

    Yet you have no problem with the people of San Francisco who support Nancy Pelosi, the OUTLAWING of toys in a happy meal and the quest to have every firearm registered with owners name and location with the local Government.

    I'll put Sarah Palin's supporters against those folks in San Fran any day of the week.

    At least Sarah's supporters know, understand and value the concept of individual liberty and self-governance.

    Sarah Palin has a lot of common sense, and that appeals to many people.
