Ya know, the whole Sarah Palin thing was the final straw for me. I've
questioned the sanity and intellect level of the average sheople for years.
I no longer question either their sanity or their intellect. I am now
convinced that they are all insane and have no higher an IQ than a truckload
And I think most Dems hate her because she scares the beejeebers out of
them! McNasty's campaign was going down the John E. It would have been
beyond embarassing as far as votes are concerned. He picks Palin and
suddenly his campaign is rejuvenated. The whole Republican Party was a like
a bunch of old fuddy duddies sitting around the old folks home snoring.
Palin was like someone replaced their Ensure with Redbull!
