Meanwhile, in India, The Woman Who Will Never Be President disrespected America by dissing its president while on foreign soil, a trangression that almost cost the Dixie Chicks their careers when they said they were ashamed they came from Texas because of George W. Bush, during the Gulf War.
Sarah Palin's numbers are falling faster than a lead halibut in Bristol Bay. Here's the bad news for this narcissistic know-nothing. Read it and rejoice:
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was, as recently as last July, one of the GOP's most beloved figures. But since then, her "favorable rating" has been coming down and her "unfavorable rating" has been moving sharply north.
The latest data point of this trend is an ABC News-Washington Post poll. A story about (and details of) the poll can be found here.
Ms. Palin's shadow campaign for the 2012 GOP presidential campaign has been almost completely mismanaged. Her biggest problem -- that she lacks the experience and knowledge necessary to serve as president -- has gone unaddressed. She's embroiled herself in politically useless controversies. And she's been incoherent on hugely important issues (like the uprisings in the Middle East).
Americans support President Obama's Libya air strikes.
I'm not totally convinced this was a good thing, but cannot weigh in on the issue, since I know next to nothing about that area of the Middle East. I'm not sure this country can sustain another conflict, and I don't know if the president had the authority to do what he did. I'll reserve my opinion until I learn more. But here is a chart on how Americans support the president:
"CBS News Poll analysis by the CBS News Polling Unit: Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto.
Nearly seven in ten Americans support the use of military air strikes in Libya in order to protect civilians from attacks by Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, a new CBS News poll finds.
In a survey taken on Sunday and Monday, following Saturday's first round of U.N.-sanctioned missile and air strikes aimed at Libya, 68 percent of Americans said they approved of the military action. Just 26 percent said they disapproved.
Eight in 10 Americans want budget compromise
Fifty percent of Americans said they approved of how President Obama was handling the situation in Libya, and the president earned more support from Republicans on the issue than he did on domestic issues like the economy and the deficit. Forty-three percent of Republicans said they approved of Mr. Obama's handling of the Libya situation, according to the poll, and 41 percent disapproved. Sixty-six percent of Democrats approved, as did 43 percent of Independents."
