President Donald Trump?:

I'm watching you sleep.
I don't know Sarah Palin's fifteen minutes seem like their running out.

She'll continue to stretch her fifteen minutes. Bristol did even less to achieve her fame (she got knocked up...and nothing else of note) and her fifteen minutes still haven't run out.

And here's probably why Trump won't be running: the ongoing NFL lockout has assured another season of The Apprentice (despite poor ratings).

Bristol's fame was really an extension of Sarah's though.

I agree that she will stretch her fifteen minutes, but there is only so far you can stretch before in breaks apart.

Palin's barely been heard from for months. If she were serious about a run she'd be all over the place right now drumming up popular support. I think she's enjoying being a celebrity too much to take the dive into the race.

I've said it before, but the real irony of the Republican party right now is that the candidates who enjoy the most rabid and vocal support among the radical right are the ones least likely to win a general election. Romney is widely regarded as the most electable general candidate, but he's crippled by the perception that he's too liberal. Is it possible that Republicans' blatant overuse of the Overton Window has finally come back to bite them?

Not entirely a douche
Yeah, the moderates have canceled each other out. The fringe candidates have an unprecedented 50-50 shot of taking Obama in the general election.

Obama will hang in there since he's the incumbent, so I don't think he will be effected by the rise in corporate donors. But it will definitely fuel his opponents.

It'll be tight race, man.

[up] [up] And most of The Overton Window was stolen from another book with a completely different message (Glenn Beck paid the ghostwriter to change the message).

Which book?
Don't just tell us the facts; tell us the memes, tell us the archetypes, tell us the catchy ideas and symbolic roles that get planted in pe

Circumference of Darkness by Jack Henderson. Beck paid Henderson to ghostwrite The Overton Window and other than changing the villains (from right-wing to left-wing) and the names, it's the exact same book.

Did they steal the ridiculous tesla coil thing too?
Life is simple: it has no nontrivial normal subgroups.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
