Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Then God help us all with Pres. Sarah Palin.

Speaking of which - Palin's popularity with the press and others just amazes me.  I don't get it. How can such a totally uninformed, nonsensical, screwball remain a serious candidate for anything except president of the loony bin?

Guess I answered my own question, huh?

I somehow understand the sentiment, but don't understand exactly the answer to your own question.

Perhaps that there is always a loony bin crowd of hateful people who whip up the angry people?

Yeah. Could it ever turn into Bosnia/Hertz in the US? I bet they would like that. History seems to give 13-17 percent to these people, around the world. Sarah might get more the next time out as a 3rd party candidate, but the Republican party isn't that stupid as to give her the nod.

Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
