OK, you lot – pile into the Wayback machine, and travel back in time and space (insert obligatory ELO backwards masking here).
It was a plainer time – a simpler time – a dumber time.
Well, lookee here – it’sDie Harder!

My first and probably last vanity.
Picture a crowd of people gathered for a political rally. The speaker gives out the old bromide “Why are we here?” The crowd replies in a frenzy. “We want change!” Is this Occupy or a college campus? No, it’s Free Republic. Let’s face it, we all admire our favorite candidates in the Republican field. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, don’t we all. The real problem is that they’re unable to differentiate themselves from each other, in a defining manner. Considering the trampling of rights, unemployment, regulation, immigration, crime, education (lack of and cost of), corruption, lack of leadership, zero (he has to come last, because he’s earned it), why is one of these candidates not really able to capture our desperate imagination? Some will say Cain has done this very thing. Would the majority of them have said the same thing 2-3 months ago? I think not. I think he’s a better man, than I. And I truly mean that. But I don’t sense the killer instinct that is needed right now. Cain is passionate, he’s just not desperate. Desperation is where too many of us living(sic).
Desperation is all right-wingers have.Everything’s a fucking crisis with you yobboes. I’ve been listening to this crap about howfill-in-the-blank is the most horribleist thing EVAR and will immediately cause America to go up like a piece of flash paper – for decades. Know what? Hasn’t happened yet, and isn’t going to happen.
But do you thimble-witted planarians remember and learn? No. You just keep bouncing from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis, becausethat’s all you have.
We’re debating between Cain, Perry, Romney, Bachmann, Santorum, Gingrigh, Paul. It’s great that we have such a diverse field to choose from and we still haven’t made a decision. The right’s version of diversity is reality. The left’s is checking a box on a form. It will take a person willing to make unlikely political decisions.The left has torn this country usunder(sic) for many a year and many a way and it has to stop. The right has to show it’s(sic) teeth, and if necessary use them. We need to draft Palin. I see no other option where we win back our country from the abject corruption we see daily reported on FR. There are many on this board who consider her a fraud. I never saw that side of her. My favorite study through my life has been military history. I’ve read of the most narcissitic(sic) people in the world over and over, generals and politicians. Ruthless, to the max. Of all the times I’ve seen her on TV I’ve never once sensed a need for political revenge. This, to me, is standard operating procedure for a politician. Never seen it from her. I can’t think of anyone whom I’m not related to that I believe in their goodness and good intentions. No person can be all things to all people (cept Jesus) and maybe she rubbed people the wrong way. Isn’t that normal? I, for one, believe she was put her for a reason, to be President of the United States. I want to re-institute the draft. Just for POTUS.
Paragraphs are your friends.
She said no. Leave it at that.
To: TwoSwordsEisenhower said ‘no’ over and over, until he was finally drafted at the nominating convention. He then said ‘yes’.
Don’t count Palin out. She said recently that she could be persuaded to reconsider her decision if she saw an “earthquake” develop. Many of her supporters heard her say that, and immediately responded with a flood of postcards and letters, begging her to reconsider her decision.
Now, even her brother Chuck is trying to get her to change her mind.

The media has to be dealt with. And I’ve finally figured out a way.
Have you, now?
Quid Pro Quo.
There’s no need forthat kind of language.
At any press conference the interogatee gets to ask the reporter a question
That sounds ripping!
Let’s give it a try, shall we?
and if they don’t like/agree w the answer they move onto the next reporter. If the reporter is able to answer the question responsibly they can ask a question.30 posted on Friday, November 04, 2011 1:12:13 AM byTwoSwords (Has anyone seen my suspension of disbelief pills?)To: starlifter
“Draft her for what?”
I understand your cynicism. Still let me clarify: draft her for the presidential nomination.
If it becomes apparent that Romney could be the GOP nominee then drafting Palin could become a reality, as the only way to save us all.
To: TwoSwordsAre we ready to draft Sarah Palin, yet?
I sure am.
Her buoyancy is contagious.
To: Darkwolf377Exactly. This is why I was so frustrated by the cries of “You’re a hater!” whenever anyone raised any question about Palin here.
Cor blimey, I got so sick of that.
I stopped expressing any support or otherwise for Sarah Palin a few months ago because I didn’t want to be associated with some of those people in any way whatsoever.
They were (and still are, just for a different candidate now) embarrassing.45 posted on Friday, November 04, 2011 1:37:59 AM byAllegra (Hey! Stop looking at my tagline like that.)To: TwoSwords
Glad to see those sacred of Sarah are still here attacking someone else…
Run Sarah Run…I’m with you…she is the only one…
Just be prepared to be endlessly attacked here…they don’t want to take any chance that she might change her mind, so they get vicious at every mention of Sarah running
It’s called “Occupy FreeRepublic”
