Now that's a Hard Choice...
I'm not even sure what I'd be choosing but here goes:
which of these would be scarier as President?

I think that Bachmann is smarter (of course, that's not hard to be) but even kookier. So I'll take her as overall scarier.
I don't think Palin will be taken seriously as a candidate outside of the Tea Party fringe if she chooses to run.

And here I was thinking in a totally different direction.  :P

That's the beauty of hard choices.  You can take it any way you wanna.

Both are good looking in the realm of politics (though its not hard to be attractive when you look at their peers), but Sarah has my vote between the two!

Interesting choice. I think Palin wants the fame, glamor, and money of being a political celebrity without doing the hard work. Whereas, I don't get that vibe from Bachmann. I think she wants the power. At first that made me think that Bachmann was scarier if she ever became President, but because she wants power, she'll want to hang on to power, and might actually mellow out some to stay in office. I wonder if Palin would give a damn about any of those restraints if she became President. So, I got to go with Palin. At least Bachmann is capable of somewhat backtracking when she gets called on some of her crazy statements. Palin just battens down the hatches and goes harder.

So you're saying Sarah is more MILFey than Michelle, right?

Ugh...!

American Pie... a movie I walked out on in the theater. :(

the first one?  heh-heh-heh... was the pie-love segment too much?

regarding the topic... I'm almost convinced that Palin would be savvy enough to surround herself with "shadow" decision-making cabinet members ala George W. with Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc.  On the other hand, Bachmann I'm convinced would be more prone to bulldoze ahead simply based on her, ah, um, convictions, regardless...  ;)

Yeah...
The movie seemed like a corny, modern version of Animal House (which was a classic).  I just couldn't get past the first 10-15 minutes...   So I walked out on it.
