What She Knows

Mark Halperin:
Palin thrives on the unpredictable, and as her new video shows, she can adapt quickly. "What she knows, you can't teach," says Mark McKinnon, a top strategist for George W. Bush and McCain. "And what she doesn't know she can learn — and she's learning fast."
I saw someone say something very much like this in a documentary about - surprise! - a Russian beauty contest. First prize was a washing machine.

Run Sarah run!

Only in Russia.

In Soviet Union, something is or does the opposite of whatever it is or does in the U.S.

You can't teach Yakov Smirnoff routines, they teach you.

So, she's earning a degree in molecular biology?

Her own hubris, self-involvement and general lack of interest in the world around her will result in her being utterly unprepared and embarrassing herself daily. You can't run a real campaign from Facebook, and to say she's a lightweight is to insult the gravitas of lightweights everywhere.

Besides, I really think this is a case where the conventional wisdom is right. Her negatives are just impossible for her to overcome in a general election scenario. I mean, they said exactly the same thing about Hillary, and she ended up losing the nomination to a Knee Grow. See what I mean?

Hullo, stoopid punk bitchiz!

Well, finally a topic on which we can all agree! Makes me feel all warm inside.

Sarah Palin is dumb -- now there's an observation that is both substancey and gravitesque! It takes an astute observer like SM to figure that out.

Way to go, McGrabass. That's why you get comments the number of which sometimes breaks into the double digits! Whutta blog, eh?

I'm gonna like my new home! So spacious and roomy!

There is a problem with taking internet names literally I guess.

Fee Fi Fo Fum! I smell the blood of some troll food scum!

You think the washing machine is a clothes washer? Hah!

I don't get how you got your own troll by saying mostly goofy nonsense, whereas we at FMM offered heaps and heaps of troll bait and yet, over our 3 year long journey, not ONCE did we get a troll that lasted more than like 3 posts.

Also, too, I have lost all faith in American (global?) politics, but if Sarah Palin gets nominated, oh boy, that'll change for sure

I think the trick is to engage elsewhere and lure. Troll of Sorrow came out of CT, The Fool has practiced his craft at LGM, CT and SN...
