This astounds me:
Even though the governor of Alaska dropped the bombshell last week that she was leaving her post, a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds that her support among Republicans is still strong. In fact, her resignation seems to have even slightly boosted her among GOP constituents.
According to the nationwide poll, close to 67% of Republicans want Palin to be “a major national political figure” in the future. And 71% of them say they would likely vote for her if she ran for president in 2012.
I was really hoping that Republicans were backing Sarah Palin only because they were stuck with her and had to support the Republican party – even when they do something dumb. Apparently not. I worry for our country when so many people want to elect dumb presidents.
It’s almost as if Republicans are in a secret plot to destroy the country through bad leadership. Maybe the whole ‘flag waving’ thing is all part of the cover-up of their true motives.
I can’t help but wonder if Republican support for Sarah Palin is somehow fueled by the fact that so many of us dislike her. As in: “I don’t like Democrats. Those Democrats don’t like Palin. I think I really like Sarah Palin!”
Here’s another gem:
The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.
