GUEST,Songbob BS: Palin: Teaching History to the Natives (165* d) RE: BS: Palin: Teaching History to the Natives 06 Jun 11


Sarah Palin's 40% favorability rating is a lot higher than the 27% rating most of the right-whingers get -- there's a constant level of support for truly bat-guano-crazy thinking that seldom goes much above or below 27%, for some reason. Palin gets all those votes and a few others, I guess, mostly just low-infomation folks that can't tell her from Tina Fay.

I have decided that the 27% level represents those that Lincoln described:

Some of the People All of the Time.

If you take those "All of the Timers" with enough of the "Some of the Timers," you can win elections (witness the off-year election of 2010). And with the Supreme Court allowing unlimited corporate money to buy media time, etc., we may just get that result.

God help us.

Bob
