Palin’s Mama Grizzly Coalition

After all of the comments we got on Marla Miller’s The Power of Palin post last week, I figured there should be some sort of rebuttal. Well, it seems that The Daily Show’s Kristen Schaal  managed to take care of that for me. In this Daily Show with Jon Stewart segment from August 3rd, Schaal describes Sarah Palin’s political strategy of invoking the power of mama grizzlies.

    Ah-hem, I offered this link the day after it aired…remember…:) Here’s another one—-
    And don’t forget to answwer the question Would Sarah Palin make a good president? US News asks readers at the end of this story…or whatever they call this kind of news that even US News can’t ignore—

      Sorry Marla, I missed it in the comments. But putting it up as a post revives the topic a bit. And while I know you are not making this stuff up, no matter what poll, Sarah Palin would not make a good President.

    Sarah Palin for president… That’s a joke, right? She couldn’t even get through a full term as Governor of Alaska. I honestly don’t see why America is so infatuated with her. She was a crappy, self-serving governor, unbelievable and inarticulate as a VP candidate and a not-so-bright speaker on the circuit.

    She does have nice hair…

    Surely Chris-you read The Power of Palin carefully enough to read my concern not endorsement—
    America is infatuated…and we elect people who infatuate us….
    the long record of doing just that speaks for itself….
    I believe men, more than women, see her as a joke—
    she’s no joke…

    this just posted in the W Post–more evidence of her impact—the DEM politicos would be VERY smart if they did NOT take this woman lightly….but then when has my party’s leadership ever been very smart for very long?

      Marla,

      Did you miss the following part of this article? It was on page 2.

      ‘Not terribly relevant’

      No independent analyst has suggested that Murphy has a chance of beating Ehrlich, who told reporters last week that he thought Palin’s endorsement was “not terribly relevant to anything.” The tea party movement, which Palin has aligned herself with, has not packed the same punch in Maryland as it has in some states.

      Privately, Ehrlich aides have said that getting shunned by Palin could help him in the general election. Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans more than 2 to 1 in Maryland, and some of the Democrats whom Ehrlich needs to draw to his side are hardly fans of Sen. John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential race.

      Or there are the recent polling numbers from Quinnipiac University that showed 50 percent of independents viewed Palin unfavorably. http://www.quinnipiac.edu/x1295.xml?ReleaseID=1478 Question #17 in the poll. Also you will notice that 52% of women view Palin unfavorably. Her unfavorable rating among women even surpasses that of men. I think some men call the the MILF factor.

      Marla, Maybe this Huffington Post commentary from Stephanie Schriock, President of Emily’s List will add a womans perspective to the lack of validity of the “Palin Effect.”

      Women Voters Will Choose Progress, Not Palin, This Election Cycle
