Guest column did disservice to Palin

  • Follow Letters

Thanks for publishing such a biased article about Sarah Palin as "Palin a new kind of puzzle for GOP" (Dec. 18).

The GOP establishment has good reason to fear her, as do the Democrats. She cleaned house in Alaska, and some of the former GOP there are now guests of the state.

Your guest columnist's cheap shot about Palin expressing skepticism about man-caused global warming did not mention that a significant number of atmospheric scientists also are skeptical, as well as much of the public. He did not mention that Earth has gone through cooling and warming cycles on a regular basis with no assistance from humans. He did not mention that Palin sold the governor's jet, nor that she declined a chauffeur and a state limousine.

One person cannot change Washington, D.C., that much, but she would set an example that the rest of the politicians would not like to emulate.

P.S.: Visitng Augusta -- great city!

Tore Fossum, Dickinson, Texas

on some levels Palin is

on some levels Palin is scarier than Obama. At least I have a clue on what he stands for. She's as much a "MAAAVERICK" as any of the other D.C. dunces!

why do people seem to hate

why do people seem to hate sarah so much? she was immediately attacked by pundits from both sides of the spectrum as not up to the job. well all you haters please list your resume of accomplishments. list all those things that make you so qualified to judge this woman. i have no problems with policy disagreement but the attacks on sarah and her family are always personnel. i'll tell you why i like her, she does not pretend to be anything but what she is..

concernednative.........what has she said or done that is a disservice? Give us some specifics. I'm tired of people insulting her intelligence, yet can't point to anything unintelligent she has said. It seem to be some sort of derangement.

One of the most impressive things about the physically and mentally attractive mother from Alaska is that she terrifies all libs and most Dems. There's not much doubt she's on the right path.

What is it with you

What is it with you people?

If you are a man you are successful and considered accomplished.

If you are a female you are a dizzy broad.

You can't have it both ways. With the success that she has shown as a leader God Bless Her! For those who have a problem with her accomplishments We pray for you!

I think Palin is great for

I think Palin is great for the Tea Party morale. She energizes them and reinforces their belief that the nation's issues can be solved with some simple common sense and tax cuts. However, she gets eaten alive on the national political stage. I mean she couldn't even handle Katie Couric or a full term as governor, how in the world is the Republican party going to trust someone like her to run in a national election? Answer: they won't.

I believe Sarah Palin is the only one out there in the news that can bring back what is so much lacking in our government today. COMMON SENSE. We sure don't have it now on either sides.

There is no way the Republican establishment would ever allow Palin to be the Republican presidential nominee. They know that she would be eaten alive on the national stage and that she would have no chance of winning the presidency. There are a lot of stupid people in this country, but there just aren't THAT many stupid people.

We know more about Sarah

We know more about Sarah Palin than we do our own president. Within 24 hrs of the announcement of her candacy the press was all over her background. I think it is great that the left fears her so much.... We still are waiting for the press and media to look into O'Bama....we do know for a fact now that he is not the great unifer or world darling that he claimed he would be.We are also painfully aware that the Hope and Change he promised isn't what he delivered. Ramming through legislation to hide his failures on the World stage. Although they refuse to print it he is the biggest flop since the edsel..His Howdy Doodie appearance has lost it's charm....
