    Well, I suppose they can't really claim to be the 'family values' Party. I mean, they won't be able to bang on about same-sex 'marriage' with an elephant that size in their drawing room.

    What silliness. Others in the party fail so the whole party must be silent? Did you really think about that before you posted?

    Ah, so it's "do as I say, not as I do"? Now that is silliness. Did you really think about the rank hypocrisy you are advocating before you posted?

    Thats not what I asked. I asked about the ramifications and what the party is going to do. I think you just jumped to an assumption.

    This does not help her political future.

    The Republicans remain in disarray. The party thrives -- and survives -- on strong leaders.

    Reagan had "family values" issues yet remains the patron saint of Conservative Republicans.

    Personally, I've never seen in Gov. Palin all that other conservatives seem to see. I always thought she was a light weight who had some good speech writers who knew how to put together a sound bite.

    But I am sorry if they are going to divorce.

    The party really needs to do several things. 1st Stop being the GOP of the 1900s with smoking parlors and tayloring themselves to the rich. They need to get with the convservatives and perpectrate the political conservative approach which is not the same as protecting their investors.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. If your Canadian "aboot". I really think the party needs to get its act together or we are going to loose another one. Plus I think Palin couldn't handle the limelite.

    I don't know if there is or not. The original source was the Enquirer

    I doubt it, it will most likely be Romney,but if she were to actually get divorced she would be done. And it would explain her stepping down as Governor.

    Palin is just another in a long line of republican hypocrites.

    The party of "family values" indeed! :laugh:

    Sadly, people keep looking to the Republicans to save us. They are unable to save us. They are unable to even save themselves. The Republicans are in total disarray. Their ungodly ways are killing them. They spout off about family values out of one side of their mouth while flirting with their mistress out of the other side. There are only two differences in general between Reps and Dems today - ideology and the Dems don't even bother trying to look moral. The Republicans are such hypocrites that it just kills them. Most of the politicians up there in Washington are just totally corrupt, totally morally bankrupt, and not many of them (if any of them) has any clue.

    Sooner of later people need to realize that the Republicans will not save us. The country needs to turn to Jesus Christ, honor Him, repent of our many terrible sins, and try to be a country that follows His teachings. If we will turn to God He will heal our land. We won't, thus we are on a fast track to utter destruction. Meanwhile people are too busy playing partisan politics to notice or care, including many well meaning Christians. Wake up people!
