It's really hard for me to fathom. All this fuss about a nitwit from Alaska. What have we come to as a people and a culture that a creature such as this would occupy so much of our consciousness? To be sure, there are people that actually like this barbie doll tramp and believe she is "smart", and perhaps she really is as she runs to the bank. The scary thing is that lots of people do like Sarah Palin and they live in the same country as I do. It's all too depressing and makesme hope that December 21, 2012 is on target.
