The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

I am coming to the conclusion that the power structure is so happy with Obama's ability to give the corporations virtually everything they want, and demobilize the left while doing it, that they are working to ensure his reelection by keeping Sarah Palin's presidential hopes alive with non-stop national media coverage.

The Christian Science Monitor reports:

The Gallup polling organization has just released its latest on likely presidential candidates’ popularity within the GOP. Not surprisingly, Sarah Palin leads all the guys with presidential aspirations (Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Bobby Jindal) … not counting everybody in the US Senate, all of whom believe themselves to be presidential timber.

Palin’s at 76 percent “favorable” among Republicans – at least 10 percentage points higher than any of the guys.

The oligarchy does not worry about her winning though. Her national unfavorable ratings with the entire electorate now stand at 52.3% while only 36.9% see her in a favorable light. This "refudiate" bit won't help her much.

Palin's response to this latest verbal dust-up? She tweeted her fans saying, "English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!"

The rich and powerful, who play with our democracy like a personal water toy, are surely enjoying this spectacle.

They want elections? We'll give them circus!
