I respectfully disagree.

I see one idiot and three people of varying intelligence and competence.

The answer is never.

So what are they flip flopping on?

Palin, on the other hand, IS running on this platform. Which makes her a big, fat hypocrite.
I'm not sure why this is so hard for people to wrap their heads around...

When was the last time a Democrat was re-elected with those results?

That's what we like to call a non-sequitur.

Polls don't indicate whether or not someone is intelligent. Actions and words do.

A man who was re-elected with the primary reason being that people would have preferred to have a beer with him as opposed to the other guy is probably not going to bode well when it comes to intellect.

And Palin a hypocrite, as you said, for running this platform after having voted in favor of it.

WHAT is the Obama and Biden hypocrisy on this issue? Pointing out Sarah Palin's? From what I know of their positions, there's absolutely no conflict between saying "earmark X is bad" and "despite that, the overall bill was good enough to vote for".

(CNN) — McCain supporter Sen. Lindsey Graham tells CNN the McCain campaign is proposing to the Presidential Debate Commission and the Obama camp that if there's no bailout deal by Friday, the first presidential debate should take the place of the VP debate, currently scheduled for next Thursday, October 2 in St. Louis.

In this scenario, the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin would be rescheduled for a date yet to be determined, and take place in Oxford, Mississippi, currently slated to be the site of the first presidential faceoff this Friday.

Graham says the McCain camp is well aware of the position of the Obama campaign and the debate commission that the debate should go on as planned — but both he and another senior McCain adviser insist the Republican nominee will not go to the debate Friday if there's no deal on the bailout.
Reschedule the VP debate for an undetermined time? I've heard this elsewhere but it's really true- Palin's like the kid who pulled the fire alarm because she didn't study for the final. I hope Biden stands up next to an empty podium, or invites Bob Barr's VP to join him.

I have been reading these threads, I have subscribed to them all, and from day one, I have been hoping to come to a better understanding of the politics of this world.
I read every single response and try hard, as someone who was never, ever interested in politics, never given tools to understand, and never really took an interest until now, to understand the jargon and reasoning of each figure.

I can seriously say now, that Sarah Palin has dummied herself down so much, that even I think we are fucked.


No shame...
I can bring home he bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let you forget your a man...
but God help us if these people (R) get elected.

Ok, I am passing this thread back to the eloquent people.
Whom by the way, I think are doing an amazing job...so thank you.

This is why she scares me.
Does this not scare anyone else?????
