What Causes Hate?

I just read an article on the internet about a movie premier of hate toward Sarah Palin. The woman who has done nothing but attempt to run for vice president and who has still not come out and said if she was going to run for president in 2012 - has been attacked repeatedly by the extremists and Hollywood. Go figure. I don't know why - unless it's because she's pretty and smart and knows what she's doing. She doesn't want to play their games, she's about making things work, and she's real. Hollywood is all about imagination and fantasy. She's about reality and making it work. I feel sorry for anyone who manages to get in the public eye. Their lives become a nightmare of avoiding the paparazi and the press, having to justify themselves and their decisions and becoming the 'watched' one around the nation. It's not worth it. NONE of it. I hope she finds the comfort and respect of those that do appreciate her to be enough to offset the caustic and filthy words of those attacking her.
It's a shame.
For what it's worth, I think she's great and I would have voted for her on McCains ticket, only to hope he had a heart attack and she took over. If she does choose to run next year, I think she'll be giving all of them a run for their money.
Just my opinion. ;)
