Democrats Crowdsourcing To Vote Palin In Primaries 1128

SharpieMarker writes "In what could be the most extreme and influential crowdsourcing project ever, Democrats are beginning to organize to purposely vote for Palin in the 2012 Republican primaries. Their theory is by having Palin as an opponent, Obama will have the best odds at winning reelection. Recent polls have shown that Obama comfortably leads Palin by 10-20 points, but Obama is statistically tied with Romney and barely ahead of Huckabee. They even have a state-by-state primary voting guide to help Democrats navigate various states' rules for voting Palin in Republican primaries."

    Next thing you'll know, Republicans and Democrats will just appoint our "choices" for us.

    Um, I have bad news for you...

    So what your saying is you'll a)quit your job or b) stop doing business with the US. Have fun with that.

    You obviously don't enjoy it enough to care about the future of the country. Sad, since if this country goes down the rest of the globe will start to tear itself apart. As much as people don't want to admit it the US is the only thing keeping back the rest of the would be Hitlers from rising up and claiming smaller lands or lands that would otherwise be poorly defended.

    What about England? Oh who and what army? They have/had a navy. But I don't see anyone with as large a force save China and maybe North Korea. Actually I'm fairly certain the Chinese out number the US. Good luck relying on the UK. I'm sure it'll work out better the next time around (WWII?). I know it's throwing salt into the eyes of those countries, but everyone else needs to remember that the US helps keep the world in some sort of chaotic balance. Regardless if you like it or not the US is still needed. If it falls the rest of the developed world will fall to dictators and who knows what else. You can bet that Israel and Iran would nuke each other. Russia would seize its moment to grab what it can.

    While the US does depend on allies without the US those allies will be severely weakened to the point of breaking if someone tries anything funky.

    Palin Zealots aren't allowed to ride on dinosaurs as dinosaurs where put there by god to test man's ability to deceive itself into believe the earth is only 6000 years old and one of the first ones born lived to be 900 of those years.

    However i do agree with every else you said.

    This woman is about a dumb as a box of hammers.

    That's an unfair comparison.

    At least if you have a nail, a hammer is good for SOMETHING.

      And by golly shucks, she'll single handedly bring the average IQ of the country down to low double digits (ok, down by 3 points, but still), even if it's just from directing schools to teach what she knows to be true.

    Yes, but at least they'll have tasty desserts in the schools! Right up until Halliburton privatizes them all.
