Today and 2012 - Elections and Opinions

The upcoming Presidential election may be two years away, but it is already creating a great deal of excitement in the news arena.

Nick Wing of The Huffington Post shares that likely Republican candidates have appeared frequently on Fox News. Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, and John Bolton have all appeared at least 36 times.

Sarah Palin gets another mention in a Slate article by journalist John Dickerson where he speculates her ability to effectively execute a successful campaign in 2012.

And Palin takes up arms against a political foe in an Archie comic, says Patrick Gavin of Politico, gathered in the Drudge Report. In that article, a quote given by Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater states that Palin "represent[s] the Republican Party right now." The comic features Sarah Palin facing off against our current President in a traditional "superhero" comic-cliche.

All of these pieces observe politics in a different way and each provides a valuable insight into each author's feelings on the current political situation.
