It might seem weird politically, but her and Al Gore should get together. With his internet inventing skills and her psychic powers, they would be unstoppable.

My friend's newborn son spit up on my shirt last week and I think he was trying to tell me (in his own way) that the decline was about to happen. Weird how he and Palin were on the same track, huh? He's cute.

Why's this even blog-worthy, other than it's SP? Apparently she did write about it, and it did come true.

Sooner or later, the markets will expect us to settle the bill for the enormous Obama-Pelosi-Reid spending binge. Weve already been warned by the credit ratings agency Moodys that unless we get serious about reducing our deficit, we may face a downgrade of our credit rating. Even the lamest of lame ducks cant ignore this reality.

it's astounding how you lower the bar to find her wisdom red. this thing has been discussed to death long before sarah palin's brilliant authoring of that piece. it was common rhetoric at the time. all she did was parrot it, and in a weak way.

and notice she said "may". she said "we may face a downgrade of our credit ratings." pretty vague, huh? did she give a time frame? did she say something like "by next august there will be an s&p downgrade. i don't see it. but because she said "may" and one agency downgraded our rating, now she's saying "i predicted it" as though she made some brilliant prognostication that no one else could see. this is taking credit for a bit of intellectual contribution that she didn't actually make at all, and it seems pretty phony to me. it's unfathomable that you see this as wisdom.

i will list a few things here:
1. obama may win the election.
2 the republican nominee may win the election.

now, according to your standards, i've got all the bases covered. either way, i predicted it, and i'm brilliant. really, it's pathetic how right wingers go out of their way to lower intellectual standards when it comes to palin. red, you just gave us a great demonstration. thank you.

I knew something like this was going to happen when Bush was in office several years ago. The republicans wants to do the name blame here.

What cracks me up is that the majority of Americans dont understand that you cant just raising the debt limit before the rating is dropped.
Try this at home. max out your credit cards, then get some more, use the new ones to pay off the old, when all of the cards are maxed again, go to the bank and ask for a higher limit so you can use card C to pay off card B to pay off card A.

lets see how long it takes for your bank to cut off your credit.
