Excellent work, Terry. Lipstick on a pig indeed.

I hate being glad at how vicious this is but there it is. I am. Something about her brings out the worst in us. Thank you.

Don’t you know that it’s NOT NICE to make fun of the mentally absent?

Perhaps they shouldn’t run for public offices, in that case?

I expect her political career to fail in the most spectacular manner.

Yeah, thats what I thought about Bush, before he got in the second time, lets hope for a fail.

Say hello to the walking, sexy titanic that is Palin’s career.

Only talentless numbskulls put tripe like this out for public viewing. Only the truly desperate enjoy it.

why do people hate someone they don’t even know. how sad is our country.

Even as a Republican I think that Sarah Palin is a bad bad choice to lead this country. Your cartoon here is underhanded and dirty. People do not choose to have handicap children and your cartoon proves that you do not have any children of your own. To insinuate that any parent would use their children as political capital is distasteful and low. Must have been a bad news week for the ONE.

Dude. Palin accused President Obama of trying to kill her baby. How is that not using Trig as political capital?

She often mentioned her role as a mother on the campaign trail, as well. She tried to use that against Joe Biden in the VP debate, but he swung back with his own status as a single father.

To insinuate something false about another *is* distasteful and low. To point out something you can prove is fair play.

Unfortunately, photos from her book tour establish his status as a political prop. There is more than one picture of everyone else bundled up against the chilly weather, while Trig is exhibited without shoes, socks, a hat and in one picture without pants.

As of today, Trig was last seen crawling around the floor of Ted Stevens Airport without shoes or socks on. When SP spotted someone trying to take a picture, she grabbed Trig and hustled him off to the ladies room to put on some socks. Let’s hope he didn’t put his little fingers in his mouth. I doubt she thought to wash his hands. Really, dirt is cleaner than the floor at an airport.

Sorry for such a long comment, but I was at the Plano, Texas bookstore signing. It was a crisp day, with gusts of chilly wind, and Trig was carried around with little bare feet and no hat, scarf or even a light blanket to shield him from the wind.

“why do people hate someone they don’t even know. how sad is our country.”

But yet it’s okay to hate the President because he’s black, of Muslim heritage, and because he’s a dirty liberal. It’s also okay to call into question whether or not he’s really an American. Gimme back my country, durrrrrrrrr!

“why do people hate someone they don’t even know. how sad is our country.”

What’s sad about our country is that someone like her can be taken seriously – and there are many self-serving opportunists like her in the show business of politics. She’s shown us more than enough to draw fire and richly deserves the intense dislike she’s attracting – hate is too strong a word for someone so vapid.

Hate breeds hate, and she certainly has done nothing but be hateful. I’d love nothing more than for her to leave the public eye so that we would never have to hear, or speak, of her again. Until that time do your worst, she deserves it.

I tell you what, I’m voting for her in the Republican Primary because I know President Obama can’t lose in the General Election against her. Sure, the Tea Party and other Republicans love to tout her but they all know for a fact that she would be bad for this country.

Except the ones who vote for her, that is.

Harsh! …and unfortunately apt.
