Palin Preparing Takeover in 2012. Foreign Policy Visit.

Also seems she placed second in a straw poll among voters recently.


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin emerged from a two-month absence from public view with a private talk, heavy on foreign policy, to a group of investors in Hong Kong.
AP - FILE - In this Sept. 24, 2009 file photo, former U.S. vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, center, arrives ...

Her 90-minute speech Wednesday at an investment conference touched on issues from financial markets to health care, Afghanistan and U.S-China relations. It was generally considered more moderate in tone than those Palin delivered during her 2008 campaign for vice president as Republican John McCain's running mate.

"This speech had very little to do with advancing her political career and more to do with advancing her financial career," said former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer.

That would be more appropriate.

Palin / Beck in 2012 !

In reply to: Palin Preparing Takeover in 2012. Foreign Policy Visit.

I can just see it... Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck running on the conservative platform.

Neither of them can complete a cohesive train of thought from the beginning to the end of a sentence, but that shouldn't be a hindrance to their supporters !

A zinger? How unexpected !

In reply to: Ha ha!

Neither of them can stick to a script... and neither of them can stay on subject from beginning to end of a comment without getting lost on the way.

Tell me I'm wrong.

Then say "no point to it"

In reply to: Or...

You could have said so many things... instead of wasting everyone's time trying to get in the last zinger.

Did you take a poll?

In reply to: Then say "no point to it"

How do you know I wasted "everyone's time"?

Maybe YOU wasted "everyone's time," hmmm?

My "zingers" were my opinions. Nothing more needed to be said.

I did take a poll...

... and everyone in the third grade says this conversation is silly, and getting sillier by the minute. Some of the second graders are still considering the finer nuances of your comments and committed to give their opinions at a later time. Little Billy is too busy eating paste to give a response.
