    Imagine how handily she would have won with a name like Smith or Miller. Or even Obama.
    I am glad that the law only requires something that clearly displays the voter's intent, not a correct spelling of the preferred candidate's name.

    Real Americans will now hate the citizens of alaska for saying no to SS sarah,
    If the people she governed once before said no to her and her politics,
    How can someone in,Iowa,Texas,or any other town of real americans say her politics work??
    I mean wasn't this Alaskan election a referendum on Sarah Palin and her brand of politics??

    She's the projected winner for one reason only, and that is that Alaska's state statutes were disregarded in favor of determining "voter intent". However, I'm not at all surprised that folks who follow a network who hires drunk driving hit and run convicts and other so-called journalists who are so classy, professional, and objective as to use the term "tea-baggers" when referring to Tea Party protesters would turn a blind eye to that fact.

    I kinda tipped the scales on this one. Not much for Tea Party types. They have a problem with authority.

    You Americans are beginning to scare me, you actually give creedance to mental deficients like Palin. Now the woman believes she can win the White House and the scary part is, she may. Whew that is too mind boggling to contemplate.

    This woman is a pathetic little cry baby who cheated to win. That makes her garbage also.
    I'm kinda hoping she gets what she deserves. I expect she will.

    Dan Morgan. You sir are an idiot! Using your logic anyone who receives social security only wants the money so they can buy crack. I'll tell my 69 year old mother to stop using it her food,through the roof medical bills and outrageously high cost for medician and start buying crack instead. If we had known we could have done that. I guess we are not as smart as you are. You sir are a tea sipping non thinking idiot! OH I CAN USE ALL CAPS TOO. Knock it off. It is bad form and makes you look like not just an idiot but a screaming idiot.
