Little Sarah still 'chasing ambulances'

snippett:

"Yet his job approval rating is 50%, not so terrible for a man elected with 53% of the popular vote. It means that 16 months into this, half the people polled by NBC and the Wall Street Journal don't think he really is the menace that he is portrayed as being by the people who hate him as much as the other side hated George W. Bush at the end.

Of course, by that time, Bush's approval ratings had become something you found poking around in the garbage.

Tuesday, we begin to find out with a handful of primaries how a first wave of voters think this President - and his party - are doing. We find out if the mood in the country really is as hateful and toxic toward incumbents, and toward Democrats, as we are told every hour of every day by the oily, wild-eyed screamers of the right, for whom Obama has been the best possible opponent since Bill Clinton.

Palin runs hard with that crowd, without any actual beliefs of her own. Palin's idea of a big idea always has to be small enough to fit on a bumper sticker. So she is the political equivalent of an ambulance chaser, running to Arizona this weekend, sensing another opening with Obama."

"We find out if the mood in the country really is as hateful and toxic toward incumbents, and toward Democrats, as we are told every hour of every day by the oily, wild-eyed screamers of the right." 

 

I'm curious if in 2008 it was oily, wild eyed screamers of the left that were telling us the country was hateful and toxic towards Repubs?

 

"Palin's idea of a big idea always has to be small enough to fit on a bumper sticker."  Wrong.  It has to small enough to fit on the palm of her left hand.

And 4wd still chasing Little Sarah. Just like a dog chasing a car, if you ever caught her you would not know what to do with her.
