I couldn't disagree more with your editorial "Sarah Palin gets it right" June 1) where you state that "the former Alaska governor is correct that competition will breed success. " It is cooperation, not competition, that leads to success. You also state that "... it's time to stop fretting about who's in and who's out and start listening to what these candidates have to say about where they would lead this country. " Ms. Palin was unable to complete even one term as governor of Alaska.

The conventional wisdom says everything on network TV is in decline. Network news is a dinosaur crawling to the boneyard. The networks don't have one drama that can start to compete with cable or Netflix. And I dare you to name six sitcoms that you would admit watching. But then there's late night as it's been reinvigorated on NBC this year, with Jimmy Fallon replacing Jay Leno and “Saturday Night Live's” Seth Meyers taking over the 12:35 a.m. slot. Both are in first place in the ratings, and the last thing either can be accused of is getting there by dumbing it down.

What I just love about Sarah Palin is that her new book about how Christmas is being ruined by atheists opens with a quote from humorist Dave Barry - who identifies as an atheist!

I'm glad to see Dr. Ben Carson is leading the Republican field of Presidential "hopefuls" - as in "I hope this isn't all they have to offer" ( "O'Malley lags behind Clinton," Feb. 17). I'm sure he will prove to be just as viable candidate as Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry...

As a former Republican (I left the party in protest over the Iraq War), I cringe at what's happened to the GOP. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin "gets it right" in your opinion because she believes competition will breed success, but competition among whom and about what? ("Sarah Palin gets it right," May 31.) The Republican presidential field is pathetic, in my opinion, and you can't turn mice into racehorses. Sarah Palin is the queen mouse of all time. Perhaps we should be awed that Ms. Palin visited Fort McHenry, read "The Star-Spangled Banner" and even managed to lift a canon ball.

Sarah Palin has a habit of doing these kind of things, doesn't she?  Less than a month after she embarked on her touted nationwide tour of historical sites across America, Palin never seems to have gotten much farther than the East Coast.  In fact, Palin and her family have returned to Alaska with her plans in limbo, reports Realclearpolitics.com .  "Though Palin and her staff never announced a timeline for the remaining legs...

If you're wondering how the heck Sarah Palin's campaign bus wound up in Baltimore ... Wait, it's not a campaign bus, Palin insists, but a "bus to be able to express to America how much we appreciate our foundation. " So, if you're wondering how the heck Palin's "bus to be able to express to America how much we appreciate our foundation" wound up in Baltimore, I have the scoop from John Coale. Coale, you may recall, is the major Democratic fundraiser and trial lawyer best known for: A. Lending Martin O'Malley $500,000 in the final days of the 2006 governor's race.

"There goes the neighborhood." We do not know if that was Sarah Palin's initial response to the news that a journalist writing a book about her had rented the house next to hers in Wasilla, Alaska. But who could blame her if it was? As it is, the response Ms. Palin did share on Facebook seems tellingly uneven, as if Joe McGinniss' decision to move in next door had knocked her off her game. One moment, she's chirping with trademark insouciance about how she might bake him a blueberry pie to welcome him to the neighborhood.

  News came out Wednesday that Sarah Palin's poll numbers were slipping and many commentators were scratching their heads coming up with an explanation .  At the Ridiculous Report, it didn't take us long to come up with a reason why. In fact, we came up with 10 of them (presented below in video form). We jest, but truthfully if the Republicans want to have any chance of unseating President Obama, they simply cannot nominate Palin. She's much too prone to committing gaffes when asked substantive questions.  The Top 10 Reasons Why Sarah Palin's Poll Numbers Are Dropping:  1:    2:    3:  4: 5:    6:  7:  8: 9:    10:

Martin Bashir, the embattled MSNBC show host who on Nov. 15 urged a crude and graphic form of punishment for Sarah Palin, resigned from the channel Wednesday. MSNBC could afford to do nothing less than force Bashir out in the wake of his hateful speech. Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, tried stonewalling the mounting criticism even after Bashir delivered an on-air apology, but the words and actions were too gross and hateful to allow Bashir to return. In the Nov. 15 remarks, Bashir attacked Palin for calling the national debt a form of slavery for American citizens.

If you don't know by now about the truly sick comments MSNBC host Martin Bashir made about Sarah Palin, you need to see this video. And then, you might want to ask yourself how it is that Bashir is still on the air. And why aren't folks like Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd, who claim to speak for NBC News, not speaking out about this? Those are some of the questions we asked in a spirited discussion on Howard Kurtz's "Media Buzz" Sunday morning on Fox News. Kurtz's other guest is Joe Concha, columnist at Mediaite.

Susan Reimer 's recent column regarding Sarah Palin was spot on and laugh-out-loud hilarious ( "Sarah Palin: the gift that keeps on giving," Nov.13). I did feel that she left out the true reason that this political and intellectual lightweight is still around, or as Ms. Reimer so eloquently puts it, is the "gift that keeps on giving. " And that reason is that she is a very, very attractive women with all the right physical attributes: great figure, pretty hair, beautiful eyes and white teeth combined with a winning smile!

Susan Reimer 's column regarding Sarah Palin does not speak well for the left ("Sarah Palin: the gift that keeps on giving," Nov. 13). Right now, Democrats in red states are running for political cover after supporting Obamacare. They prove right Governor Palin who warned against Obamacare's perils all along. Right now, we have more Americans in poverty and on food stamps than ever before and more Americans out of the workforce than ever before. Right now, Americans are losing health insurance and having their hours cut at work.

There are so many things to admire about John McCain. His service during Vietnam, his courage as a prisoner of war, his maverick nature in the hidebound U.S. Senate and, currently, his role as the only grown-up in the Republican Party. But I don't think I will ever be able to forgive him for Sarah Palin. His decision to pluck her out of Alaskan obscurity and put her on the presidential ticket in 2008 unleashed a genie that yaks incessantly, makes no sense and refuses to get back in the bottle.

The movie "Game Change" was designed to depict the narrative from the left about Sarah Palin as being true. The movie was about the narrative. The progressive/liberal left must be terrified of a Sarah Palin resurrection, as they are re-crucifying her with this movie. The truth cannot be stopped and cannot be silenced. For that reason, Sarah Palin will emerge like a stainless steel alloy from the forge of politics. As the American people realize the lies behind the various narratives from the Obama administration, elected and appointed progressive/liberal government officials and delivered by a complicit mainstream media, both the political left and the media will lose credibility, support and relevance.

In stepping down last week as a speaker at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine commencement, Dr. Ben Carson again took on the role of media/culture critic and martyr to "political correctness. " "Someday in the future, it is my hope and prayer that the emphasis on political correctness will decrease and we will start emphasizing rational discussion of differences so we can actually resolve problems and chart a course that is inclusive of everyone," he wrote to Hopkins Medicine Dean and CEO Dr. Paul B. Rothman.

President Barack Obama wants to invest an initial $110 billion in a study of the human brain that could have benefits as great as those achieved by the Human Genome Project. Maybe the first study should be done on the one-track minds of tea party Republicans who will undoubtedly oppose funding for the study because their brains are fixated on the single idea that government can do nothing right. After that, researchers could move on to figuring out Sarah Palin's brain. Perhaps they could answer this question: How can a person with so little knowledge and so little interest in acquiring knowledge imagine she has what it takes to be president of the United States?
