    SARA PALIN BLAMED by SECRET SERVICE FOR DEATH THREATS AGAINST OBAMA
    Saturday 08 November 2008
    by: Tim Shipman, The Telegraph UK

    Sarah Palin's attacks on Barack Obama's patriotism provoked a
    spike in death threats against Obama in the last weeks of the campaign

    The attacks provoked a near lynch mob atmosphere at her rallies, with supporters yelling "terrorist" and "kill him" until the McCain campaign ordered her to tone down the rhetoric.

    Can you only imagine if this person had become Vice-President! How fortunate we are that we escaped that one!

    We're not out of the woods yet. She's tasted the national spotlight and is clearly addicted, and the religious right has made her the new Joan of Arc.

    Be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Yeah, I was speculating that before the election, even before Senator Stevens got reelected. I fear she may be his replacement in January, when either the Senate rejects him, or he resigns because he's stripped of all his Senate committee assignments, perhaps even barred from voting as a convicted felon.

    The GOP would be foolish to have her as a senator during this time when her views is surely what voters didn't want. Her lack of experience just makes the fiscal conservatives embarrassed.

    It would be a good day for the Dems if she's on board.

    "And what might happen if his colleagues do kick Stevens out of the Senate, prompting a special election? Who might be in line to replace him? Hint: lipstick; $150,000 wardrobe. Yep, you betcha! Sarah Palin."

    OK, looked a little more into this issue, and if Stevens is removed from the Senate or resigns, Alaska must hold a special election. Given that Alaskans voted for a convicted felon for Senator in the first place, voting for Palin to replace him doesn't seem impossible.

    But I also read some commentary that it takes 67 votes to remove a Senator, and that the Republicans can easily defeat that if they want, if they think there's a possibility a Democrat might win the Alaska special election for Senator. They'd keep a Republican felon in the Senate to hold onto their numbers.

    Yet another commentary disagrees, saying the Repubs would have to oust Stevens, or look like criminals themselves to the whole country. Interesting permutations of this situation, for which I have no predictions of my own.

    Except, don't count Palin out yet. I have bad feelings about her future prospects. That is, good for her, bad for the rest of us.

    Palin continuing in the national spotlight would be the equivalent of SNL hiring her as a consultant.

    What I am really surprise about is that there are no Alaskan RJ member who have said anything about her.

    If you guys don't like political threads don't click them. Did you not see the name "Palin" in the subject ahead of time?

    Get your updates from the forums page instead of the home page, where you're less likely to see them. Trying to direct what gets posted and what doesn't is silly and pointless.
