I read the article. The article make a better case that she is NOT a new Palin. It says that she believes in...
small government, lower taxes, and Second Amendment rights.
What GOP candidate doesn't express these? It's pretty much par for the course. She hasn't said anything seriously inflammatory, or wildly ignorant. I think you're being a bit shallow here. She got the Tea Party nod, but that's not enough.
This is unnecessarily stigmatizing. I probably don't agree with a lot of her policies based on political views, but that is a far cry from her being a new Palin simply because she is an attractive female conservative.
