That about sums it up, it is more to cement Trump in the Tea Party camp, which means zero votes from the Independents or Democrats.

Probably less so, even. But she probably knows he'll win the primary (unless he pulls a Perot or something) and wants another shot at VP.

Not directed just at you, but I've noticed a curious thing on here. All the people that can't stand FOX or Trump or Palin etc sure seem to spend a lot of time paying attention to them. Have you ever thought about just closing a web page or changing a channel? It's starting to sound like you are being forced to listen to people. Trust me, i know when Rachel Maddow is on, and I feel empowered enough in my life to just click the power button off and go do something else.

Eh, I'm not so sure that one's accurate though.

To be fair, Palin has an estimated net worth of approx $12million, and it's basically derived from turning "folksy nonsense talk" into a tangible brand.

Credit where due, she's basically the Jenna Jameson of trash talk. One may not like how she made her millions, but it's impossible to deny that she did just that-- and started from essentially nothing.

I suppose you can forgive her for her rambling, incoherent speech at the Trump rally... if my kid had been arrested for domestic abuse a few hours prior, I would probably sound incoherent as well. I'll have to do some more reading on the charge.. I wonder if it is related to the family brawl at a snowmobile party a few months ago?

Anyhow, back to the endorsement...

Considering all of Trumps talk about 'winners' and 'winning' I am not surprised he welcomed the endorsement from a real winner like Sarah P. After all, Sarah has shown us over the years what a 'winner' she is...

She was a winner when she completed her term as governor of Alask... oh wait..

She won when she was on the ticket as Vice Presiden... oh wait...

She won when she had her contract with FOX News as a contributor renewe...... oh wait..

She was a real winner when TLC decided to renew her oh-so-popular reality show for a second seaso...oh wait..

But Trump-Palin... a wonderful mess.  I already look forward to it. PLEASE! DO IT! You will be hilarious!



As a side note... Party members want that the party cares about their interests. But the only successful candidates are those that pander to the swing voters... so Trump needs really to improve to be a real danger to anybody. A candidate who is cherished only by his own base will achieve nothing.

http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/...ular-with-general-election-voters/ is interesting. It says that Sanders is the only candidate - among all Dem and Rep ones - who is attractive enough with swing voters. Clinton is out, as she represents Wall Street and the banking-friendly policy of her husband.

Former partial-term Governor Palin has clearly been busier making and selling her brand about telling everyone else how to live than she was raising her own children. Their track record (pun intended) speaks for itself.

Quoting 727LOVER (Reply 46):
I used to think Hillary would wipe the floor with Donald.

I'm actually one of those that has started having doubts about whether Hillary truly is THE candidate the Democrats need. It's not so much that Bernie is rising as much as Hillary declining. I'm still committed to vote for the Democrat candidate. However, I may be holding my nose when I do so. Bernie still doesn't convince me, but Clinton is no longer the star she was. And either one would be way better than Trump.

Although, I still insist: a Trump presidency (or GOP, for that matter) is a blessing in disguise.

Let's assume Democrats are able to retake the Senate (an interesting scenario since it would mean vulnerable Republican incumbents lost by being linked to Trump, who squeaked an EC win by a razor thin margin...say, 268-270). That would mean a Trump presidency would be left in check for the first 2 years. No SCOTUS nominees or anything as long as Schumer says so. Assuming Trump's presumed incompetence is shown. and is unable to deliver on his promises..midterm elections in 2018 should allow some gains for Democrats. By 2020, Trump could be a one term president. However, the damage may be done, with Democrats holding more positions than they did back in 2016. In comes the 2020 census with new districts being redrawn in time to test them for 2022.

A way farfetched scenario, but one I still think is plausible. Again, two conditions have to be in place:
-A disliked GOP candidate winning by a small margin (Trump and Cruz fit the mold...)
-Democrats being able to retake the Senate (regardless of the margin). In 2018, if they face losses, assuming they can keep more than 40 seats, they should be OK with filibuster being their last resort. But if they gain seats, then so be it. Along with a gain, more governorships could switch as well as seats in the state legislatures, maybe enough to flip them, gain a veto-proof majority, or reduce the majority of GOP legislatures.
