Not to get political, but as a bleeding heart liberal, I LOVE the idea that the party has created monsters that can win the nomination, but cannot win a general election. Most mainstream Republicans know that this is a problem for them, but they have made her so powerful that they cannot stop her. She (and Delaware's version of Palin, Christine O'Donnell), get more democrats elected than anyone could. People run to the polls to vote against them! In Delaware, for example, not only did O'Donnell lose by over 20 points to a very weak candidate, but she personally was responsible for not only all but one GOP candidate losing, but we added MORE democrats to our State houses. I would say that she was a god send, if I believed in god.
So, those of us that are on the left need to keep these annoying, unelectable nutjobs in the news. I would personally send them both a lifetime supply of vitamins if I thought that they would take them regularly.
