I couldn't believe that she didn't know how to pronounce nuclear And that she used Joe Six Pack and hockey mom from my drinking game in the same sentence.

I loved that real emotion from Joe Biden

I think Sarah Palin was very well rehearsed and she was able to tailor her talking points to the questions (sometimes she used them even though they had little to do with the actual question). The questions were too general-I'd love to see her in a town hall setting, having to answer specific questions. That's why she has trouble with media interviews-oh yeah, it's just gotcha journalism.

I liked how she said "can I call you Joe" when they both came out, I thought that was actually charming.

I think the media put the interviews out there. But a lot of people around here bought into it hook line and sinker.

She could'nt have been as dumb as they were saying. Anyone with half a brain should have relized that. She's the governor of a energy producing state, not a community organizer.

Sarah Palin made Sarah Palin out to be such a buffoon.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) now must win Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Minnesota in order to get enough electoral votes to win the presidency, his campaign says.

Those were considered swing states in 2000 and 2004, but George W. Bush lost them both times.

"Our ability to pick off one of those three states is where our fortunes are largely held," a McCain official said. "These are states where Barack Obama is on the defense."
Does anybody here actually believe McCain has a chance in one of those three states? If so, which one and why?

I don't mind folksy (I've been raised in a folksy southern family), I just mind folksy that doesn't seem authentic.

So was I--born and raised about an hour South from you. But it's different, as you say, it's authentic. But even my folksy family doesn't drop the "g" in every word and insert "darn" and "betcha" and after every third word. And they can even speak without that smug fake smile. Sarah Palin is the type of girl everyone hated in my high school.

Weren't some people saying that they thought Minnesota was going to go to McCain? I'm not really worried at all about Wisconsin, from what I've heard its usually pretty solidly Democratic. Pennsylvania, I think, is still somewhat up in the air. I would definitely say Obama has a much better chance of winning it than McCain, though. Do you think Obama has a strong lead in all 3 states? I always have a hard time finding believable state-by-state polls.

Biden is supposed to be an expert on Foreign Policy. 35 years in the Senate. A man of substance and details. He repeated this line not once but TWICE!

If we just agree with you right now, can we put this one to rest?
If you want to talk about Sting, start another thread.
