Why We Don’t Need Sarah Palin: Wilmer Leon

24 Nov

Dr. Wilmer J. Leon, Howard University 

With the release of her new book Going Rogue: An American Life, former Alaskan Governor and Republican party VP nominee Sarah Palin is once again being given a spotlight she does not deserve. Under normal circumstances Palin would have drifted into obscurity by now; a political has-been who never was. Instead, a sub-par politician with no substantial constituency; no command of relevant issues, and no solutions to substantive problems, is being given air and face time as though she really matters. The simple reality that few are willing to articulate is, if she were not relatively attractive, of European ancestry and a woman, Sarah Palin would be day old bread.

Former Republican presidential nominee Senator John McCain (R-AZ) did not select Palin as his running mate because she was a “rogue”, innovator, or had demonstrated intellectual heft. McCain simply pandered to the Conservative Right, tried to siphon off some of the disgruntled Senator Clinton supporters, and gave America more of the same ole’ politics. From that point until now, Sarah Palin has continually tried to reinvent herself, but continues to give Americans more of the same; “all sizzle and no steak”.

    Hey….Mr. W. Leon

    Sarah Palin has more balls than any other candidate out there. I mean for 2012.
    I want a president who loves her country. The United States of America.
    The idiot that is in the Whitehouse now, is extremely dangerous. No balls, either. He has stated many times that he does not like this country. He’s just a poster boy who had been riding a media induced high. He can’t even produce an honest birth certificate. He is a fraud drawing power from Hollywood types and other socialist communists.
    You appear to be a person of the same type going by you slam against Sarah.

    Dr. Leon…
    You betcha! Sarah Palin will be our next President in 2012. We need someone
    who loves her country, not like Obama
    who degrades it, every chance he gets.
    He is weakening the United States and needs to be removed. I would like to see him “impeached” immediately!
    From the Conservative Town of Rowley,Ma.

    Hey! Dudes! Or would that be “duds”? You gay guys always stick together!
    The only reason you are upset with Sarah is because she’s not a guy! You’re more in tune with a whimpy like Obama. I did not vote for the Obama. He does not represent me and he certainly does not represent the forefathers who created this United States of America!

    Sarah Pallin is as vapid (air headed) as they get. She is just parroting talking points she happens to pick up here and there. The Repugs had her quit Alaska so she could maybe LEARN a little about government, the constituition, the Supreme Court, loose that God-awful Wisconsin accent of hers, etc. Why do we HAVE to have her?. Why can’t we havce a Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas?. Or the governor of Arizona?. OR Tom Tecredo?. Someone who is strong and unshakable their beliefs. It doeesn’t take much to govern Alaska. People tough it there to be AWAY from Gov’t. As long as they get their annual oil money chek, they’re happy. Pallin couldn’t even run that…HELL, she couldn’t even control her own daughter having sex in her house(The governor’s mansion)…HELL, Joe the Plumber has got more sense than Caribou Barbie!

    Caribou Barbie means 4 more years of Obama IF we survive that long.
