    She is more influential being a "prorponent" or "opponent" of whatever, out of politics and getting the speaking fees and raising money.

    Privately, I believe that Palin know this as well.

    There is evidence that lower IQ people tend to have more kids. So the theory goes that we as a race are evolving backwards. But there are lots of reasons why people have more kids ranging from lack of education to poverty. And interestingly, with lack of education and poverty intrinsically linked, IQ tests do not reflect the potential of an individual to achieve a higher IQ score if given different circumstances in life. So IQ tests are only a very crude guide to an individuals potential and the results are naturally skewed heavily towards the better educated and more wealthy in society.

    There are lots of intelligent fools in our world. Being intelligent doesnt make you better. Some of the worst serial killers in history were highly intelligent people.

    A lot of very intelligent people make very bad decisions in life, including our politicans. There is a difference between intelligence as it is gauged through education, and what is real wisdom. There is a lot of debate about how to gauge intelligence. Is it wisdom? Is it age and experience? Is it emotional stability? Is it education? Scientists and psychologists are starting to figure out that there is a lot more to intelligence than just the test scores that people get on a paper.
    That guy emptying your garbage can in the morning could well be far more intelligent than your president or PM.

    There are a lot of "...regular people...", garbage collectors, plumbers, small business owners, etc. who are members of MENSA.
    Mensans have ranged in age from 2 to more than 100, but most are between 20 and 60. In education they range from preschoolers to high school dropouts to people with multiple doctorates. There are Mensans on welfare and Mensans who are millionaires. As far as occupations, the range is staggering. Mensa has professors and truck drivers, scientists and firefighters, computer programmers and farmers, artists, military people, musicians, laborers, police officers, glassblowers--the diverse list goes on and on. There are famous Mensans and prize-winning Mensans, but there are many whose names you wouldn't know. Have a look at our list of prominent Mensans here.

    Lefty Head Assplosion Alert: Palin’s TLC Show Debuts to Huge Numbers


    Anyone else hear the sound of teeth gnashing?…

    The debut of Sarah Palin’s Alaska delivered a whopping 5 million viewers. The first episode of the eight-part series was the most-watched program launch in TLC’s history.


    Some are calling the series a 2012 campaign ad, while producer Mark Burnett has defended the show as “completely non political.”


    Tim Goodman’s THR review said both Palin’s fans and critics will find what they’re looking for in the show.

    Quite true, but the point is that no matter how intelligent a person is, unless that potential is cultivated, nurtured, trained and educated, it will most likely go to waste... If the intelligent garbage man is happy with his lot in life, so be it, but would most likely be happier applying his intelligence to more rewarding endeavors if given the opportunity...

    The current state of the education system in the US is appalling, along with record numbers of students not finishing school... All while other nations are surpassing the US in education, technical advancement and quality of life for their people...

    The root of the problem is many Americans have become fat, dumb and lazy, while having long forgotten what drove the US to be the economic power it once was...

    It's not all bad though... After all, the world needs ditch-diggers too...
    Give a man a match, and he'll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Palin: I Could Beat Obama in 2012



    Lefty head explosion alert now at DEFCON-1

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) said she can beat President Obama if the two went head-to-head in the 2012 presidential election. Palin made the case for her electability should she decide to run for president, addressing one of voters’ core concerns about the 2008 vice presidential nominee.
    “I believe so,” Palin told ABC’s Barbara Walters when asked if she could beat Obama.

    Palin made the comments during a sit-down for a special to air in December. The excerpt emerged on the same day that the New York Times posted a profile of the Republican superstar, in which she acknowledges that she’s seriously considering a run for the White House in two years.

    No, she cannot. I'm sure most of you realise that.
    Still, love or hate her she's quite a phenomenon.

    If she did that would be a very sad commentary on U.S. citizens.

    You don't seriously support that 'tard do you Boon me?

    Surely you're just winding people up.

    The really scary thing is that they voted GWB IN twice!
    Anything could happen with the US in turmoil and a public clutching at straws looking for someone to magically make everything better.
    Obama got in on the promise of change and hope. Yet he delivered very little but more of the same economic mismanagement and wars. Many of his previous supporters, swinging voters in particular, would be ready to desert him.

    Palins PR machine is gearing up to emulate Obamas election strategy of promising hope and change (all be it hollow promises same as Obama). Desperate people do desperate things and if Pailin is nominated (which I doubt), I reckon she would have a good chance of winning if only because Obama has been such a failure and people are looking for the next messiah to fix things with a magic wand.

    Politics, and in particular US politics tends to focus on "negative politics", that is the failures of opponents rather than their achievements. Obama has a lot of failures lieing in his wake. He has been a great disappointment to the US voters (and of course the world generally). New contenders like Palin however, start with a relatitively clean slate. And so the contest is between a proven failure and someone who offers the promise of doing things better.

    If it were any other developed country, I would say Palin would have been laughed out of politics long ago. But in USA, anything is possible. Especially if they wave the flag and push the patriotic angle.

    Personally, I would like to see Ron Paul as US Prez. But I am sure that wont happen either because he is too much of a realist for the US publics liking.

    I do think (I'm "pontificating" I suppose) enough in the GOP would try to get anyone else but Palin to be the nominee.

    Her negatives (polling) was very high several months ago, and I assume they are still high.

    I can relate to your quote above.

    The thought of Palin as President is pretty frightening.

    And just think of who would be around her, influencing her, and handling her?

    Fox, number 1 with racists and old farts.


    After setting a TLC ratings record last week, Sarah Palin's reality show plummeted for its second episode.

    Sarah Palin's Alaska fell 40% on Sunday night to 3 million viewers.

    Not many were in the key adult demo either. Only 885,000 viewers were ages 18-49, dropping 44% from last week.

    In fact, the median age of the show is 57 -- that's 15 years older than TLC's average.

    I find it both astounding and embarrassing for the US that someone like Palin is gaining such coverage and is seriously considered for high office

    Yea right, I'm afraid it's already happened.
    The USA has now unequivocally achieved debtor nation status.

    Sixteen years of Clintons and Bush jr and now the four years of the Barry will have taken a huge toll.

    It's time to pay the piper I reckon.

    I'll soon be too old and senile to give a shit anyway.

    Zogby Poll: Palin Chosen as Person of the Year, George W. Bush Person of the Decade

    Swarms of lefties suffer mass head assplosions in 3..2..1..

    Former Vice-Presidential candidate and Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin is the Person of the Year for 2010 according to a recent Zogby International survey. The poll, also names former President George W. Bush as the Person of the Decade (2000-2010).

    Palin garners a 21% response with President Barack Obama claiming 16% for person of the year, and Glenn Beck tied with Julian Assange with 13%. None of the other seven people listed (General David Petraeus, Mark Zukerberg, Hillary Clinton, Conan O’Brien, Steve Jobs, LeBron James, Robert Gates) in the survey pull in more than 6%.

    Democrats mostly choose President Obama (33%) and Assange (19%), while Republicans go for Palin (39%) and Beck (25%), and independents split their votes between Palin (17%), Beck (16%) and Assange (15%). President Obama only pulled 8% of the Independent vote.

    Former President George W. Bush pulls in 44% of the respondents for Person of the Decade. President Obama comes in second with 20% and Osama Bin Laden garners 11%.

    If I am not mistaken Sarahs tits look smaller in this photo?
    But certainly a much more tasteful pic than one of those peasants in Haiti shitting their body fluids out and dieing of cholera in the streets.
