Obviously she is very much mistaken. Reagan, of course, was an extremely good politician and amazing speaker. Eloquent and he was able to get people to trust him.

What's more is once he went the politician route he stuck to it. It isn't like he filmed a Bedtime for Bonzo movie while campaigning for the Presidency.

Even then Reagan did catch flak and doubt because he USED to be an actor. Her BECOMING an "actress" is different. This only solidifies people's view of her as an entertainer and not a candidate for any sort of office. With the possible exception of being in charge of the presidential humidor. <wakka wakka>

Even if John McCain finds a cure for cancer, brings peace to the Middle East, and invents cold fusion, I will never forgive him for elevating Sarah Palin to the national stage.

I knew Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a Commander In Chief AND Governor of mine. You, ma'am, are no Ronald Reagan.

What a whacko.

Palin told Wallace that her choice to endorse O'Donnell was obvious because the candidate was a "common sense conservative."

Finally, a definition of a common sense conservative...and right from the star of the Republican party. :)

Well in her defense, their kind of sense does seem rather common, all too common.

If I remember rightly, Reagan served two terms as governor, and didn't quit halfway through the first one to make more money.

True but at the end of his presidency he was mentally lacking. Onset of Alzheimers and possibly overexposure to the astrology musings of wife Nancy.

In that sense there is some comparison. :)
