    Man, Chevy Chase is an idiot. His charity won't get a dime from me.

    Sarah Palin stopped in Carson City NV this weekend for a short stump speech. Organizers were optimistic obout gathering a crowd of 'up to 2,000' for the event. More than 5,000 people turned out. Pretty much unheard of in this area. We are seeing a long overdue unification of mainstream USA.

    I think Ms. Palin is pretty much unstoppable and could easily go head to head with the SNL gang or the Hollyweirdos. Those people are actors, not common people with common problems that are sick of their parasitic government. I do find it encouraging that the left wing is running so scared that they are actually trying to use a comedy show to eliminate their competition.

    Anyone who pays attention to the "Hollyweed" sect and their opinions is sorely misguided. I don't give a rats A$$ what they think. (Streisand, Serandon, Pam Anderson, Whoopi, Babwa WAWA on the "View" and that whole box of small thinking turd smokers) These people are actors, (bad ones) that spend most of their time pretending to be someone or something else. Why would anyone with an I Q above single digits place any value in what their constantly babbling bobble head has to say?

    Sarah Palin has them so scared and confused the they don't know whether to scratch their watch or wind their ass.

    SNL did a great job with the skit on Palin and Hitlery. I'd say it's destined
    to be one of the classics.

    Jerbear- Decimate? I really do not think so. To do that we would have to begin with 10 or her and then only kill one. That would leave nine. Now we only have one to pester us and your idea would give us eight more.

    Ah, Pat, you need to go look up the word. While it may not be typically used when referring to an individual it certainly is not unusual to hear that someone was "decimated" by cancer.

    You definition is actually from the original which is seldom used today.

    So by inferring that she isn't adequate for the job, is he actually saying that he is smarter than Palin? What an idiot!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pat's definition of decimate is the same one I learned in Latin class a long, long time ago. Since then, the word has been miss-used so often that it has now, somehow, become the definition of 'total destruction'.

    True 'Decimation' is the execution of 10% of a unit, OF YOUR OWN MEN, to make an example to the remaining 90%. It was supposed to encourage them to fight harder. It was last practiced by the French (go figure) during WWI.

    What on earth can Chevy Chase do besides comedy and lately he has not been good at that. His career has been decimated. He needs to go back to his "Funny Farm", get a Henry and go plinking.

    First, decimate may mean - kill one in 10 of a group. Secondly, a less correct use of the term is to destroy a proportion of a group. In no case can it mean destroy all.

    Also, I could not get the video to play-- I assumed from the title the woman in question is a wife of a former president. I have now come to realize that the video may relate to a possible future Vice President. If that is the case, I favor the step prior to decimation. That would be to have 10.

    JBrooks- Simply because a word is commonly used incorrectly by many does not make the incorrect use of the word correct.

    At some point it does. That is why words acquire multiple definitions. If we believe "no man is an island", then I must assume that you aren't. :)

    JBrooks,


    Look up "Decimation" and "French Decimation" in Wikipedia

    It was taught to me in my HS Latin class. The practice was introduced by the Romans. My Latin teacher at that time (1963) also mentioned that the French practiced this during WWI. Since then I have heard of and read references of how the French used decimation ("Paths of Glory" by Humphrey Cobb).


    According to Wikipedia, the Soviets used decimation during the Battle of Stalingrad which is of course more recent than WWI. My apologies to the French, sort of. The Soviets also made a practice of shooting their repatriated POWs during WWII.

    As George said, the left is angry. They are filled with hate. There is no other way to describe them. Especially their candidate.

    Jerbear- I understand.

    JBrooks- Dec/i/mate-- dec can only mean 10 no matter how many times others use it incorrectly. That is why December is the tenth month, October has to be the eight month and November is the ninth month. That is what the words mean. I hope some politician like J. Cesar or the ATA Delegates didn't mess things up by adding two extra months.

    "Ball Eater" Chase hasn't said anything intelligent that wasn't written by someone else in his entire life.

    Why besmearch the name of a worthy American auto company? Why not call this clown, "Zil" Chase after the unlamented Soviet auto. It was a piece of crap just like he is.
