Right. So they know him and have a stable opinion of him.

As they get to know Palin, the gag reflex kicks in.

Perhaps, but most of it is just the reality that any new person will encounter during the course of any national Presidential campaign.

There is this thing called globalisation. There is also this special role the US nowadays has in the world.

But only slight differences to the international interrelations of 1860 of course.

And that's not even considering the vast differences between the two people in question.

Not necessarily. I'd say both are hypotheses.

My mother, a conservative leaning, registered independent, on McCain and Palin, after quiet observation for a month:

"I'm extremely disappointed in McCain. He used to be my favorite politician. But he chose her just because he thinks women who liked Hillary are stupid enough to vote for Palin just because she's a woman. I mean, there's no other explanation for him picking someone like that."

I get the indication that her brothers, who drink the Republican Kool-Aid constantly, feel the same way.

What type of experience would some one running for President in 1860 typically of had?

What type of experience does someone running for President in 2008 typically have?

Yes, there are all kinds of differences between 1860 and 2008, but were talking about one thing, the experience required to be President.

Probably because he's awfully boring. Especially lately. Nobody cares either way.

The experience you need? Whatever leads you to a full understanding of the issues you will need to deal with while in the office of President.

Couric: You recently said three times that you would never, quote, "second guess" Israel if that country decided to attack Iran. Why not?

Palin: We shouldn't second guess Israel's security efforts because we cannot ever afford to send a message that we would allow a second Holocaust, for one. Israel has got to have the opportunity and the ability to protect itself. They are our closest ally in the Mideast. We need them. They need us. And we shouldn't second guess their efforts.

Couric: You don't think the United States is within its rights to express its position to Israel? And if that means second-guessing or discussing an option?

Palin: No, abso … we need to express our rights and our concerns and …

Couric: But you said never second guess them.

Palin: We don't have to second-guess what their efforts would be if they believe … that it is in their country and their allies, including us, all of our best interests to fight against a regime, especially Iran, who would seek to wipe them off the face of the earth. It is obvious to me who the good guys are in this one and who the bad guys are. The bad guys are the ones who say Israel is a stinking corpse and should be wiped off the face of the earth. That's not a good guy who is saying that. Now, one who would seek to protect the good guys in this, the leaders of Israel and her friends, her allies, including the United States, in my world, those are the good guys.


This reminds me of that Miss America or whoever that was talking about the lack of maps or something... it's almost at that level of incoherence!

And it's not hard to pronounce Iraq the way it's supposed to be. It's not Eye-rack, you dumb bitch!

I was waiting for her to throw in "like, such as" at some point.
