InTrade: Sarah Palin Presidential Odds Plummet

Sarah Palin Presidential Odds Plummet On InTrade After Arizona Shooting

 By Nick Wing

Sarah Palin’s InTrade odds of running for president took a tumble Sunday following Saturday’s deadly shooting in Arizona.

In the wake of the shooting, the half-term Alaska governor has faced accusations that her placement of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) on a list of 20 targeted legislators — highlighted behind crosshairs — may have played some role in catalyzing the violence. Palin’s camp has strongly denied any violent intention or any connection to the events.

Palin addressed the tragedy herself in a statement Saturday:

My sincere condolences are offered to the family of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the other victims of today’s tragic shooting in Arizona.On behalf of Todd and my family, we all pray for the victims and their families, and for peace and justice.

– Sarah Palin

    Palin caused her venum in alaska and got away with it, then she thought she could do the same in OUR COUNTRY lower 48, she is not part of our country, let her go back to alaska, stay with the AIP. Mamma Grizzly, yae run’s and hides when her back is to a corner. In my life time I’ve never seen, as I call her, a sawed off little rut like her.

    After hearing the report about the fatal shootings, especially the 9-year old child, the first thought that entered my mind was, “Sarah Palin will never be President of the US. She is toast.”

    Granted Sarah did not directly cause the incident, but she along with many others have amplified violence in their impassioned rhetorical speeches. If Sarah had any sense — politically, morally or otherwise — she would have taken the chance to admit or apologize or say something, anything, that would indicate some self-awareness she may have been given a “Hail Mary Pass.” Since she did not make any sort of concession or even attempt to, but instead jumped on the defensive — as she always does — has more than likely ruined any remote chance of becoming president.

    Of course we’ve written her off time and again, but this is different. She can (and will) complain about being victimized by the lamestream media, deny, make-up excuses, rewrite history all she wants, but I feel fairly confident in saying that Sarah is no longer a, according to some, “viable” candidate — or better defined, a threat to America’s and the world’s future.

    I could very well be wrong god forbid, but somehow I don’t think so … well not after seeing InTrades headlines wrt Sarah’s falling 2012 presidential stock.

    But even more importantly, we have a chance to reflect on how to better ourselves and change the way we treat one another. Just because we disagree does not make us enemies.

    My condolences to all the families who lost a beloved one.

      We can only hope, eh? My gut feeling is that America has had enough of the Tundra Turd’s hatefulness. We can’t stomach her any more. She is nothing more than disgusting waste of skin. RAM’s pathetic attempts to explain away the “bullseyes” and related tweets are not resonating with anyone and seem to be doing Sarah more damage than if she had held a press conference and admitted the error of her ways.

      I think that most people are tired intellectually and emotionally of falling down Sarah Palin’s rabbit hole and keeping company with the Queen of Hearts.

    If I could meet Palin, Mansour, and any of the others who have created, used, and approved of the use of violent rhetoric for personal/political gain, I’d ask them how they feel justified in claiming to follow the Prince of Peace when their actions/words don’t mirror his. According to my Bible, Christians don’t do/say the things she/they have done. Jesus said that what comes out of your mouth is what is in your heart. I’ve witnessed what Palin and the others have said, and it is not in line with the teachings of Christ. It has always worried me that they say they’re Christians, but their words and behavior do not show it. It also seems as if they’ve forgotten that the Bible teaches us to be respectful to our leaders because it is God who puts them in their positions.
