The good news is that it doesn't matter who our VP is - with this economic situation we're in, we're all fucked anyways.

I just bought a goat.

This just put a smile on my face: apparently Dan Quayle is now involved in venture capital firms.

Only if they are questioning whether Obama is qualified to be President. I have always maintained that Obama is qualified to be President.

The reason I have brought up Lincoln, Tim Kaine, Spiro Agnew, and others is because of this myth that Sarah Palin is some how unqualified to be Vice President or President because of her "lack of experience" in elective office. If your honest and objective, and take a look at who has actually held the office of Vice President and President, you can't make the argument that Sarah Palin is unqualifed to be President. Sarah Palin would not be the first person to have been elected Vice President or President with her level of experience.

People are not black and white, you need to assess each one on their own. And by doing so you see fundamental differences in Palin, Lincoln, Obama and whoever else you want to throw in.

What you fail to understand is that I'm not the one setting up some static amount of experience that someone has to have before they become Vice President or President of the United States. Its other people who have consistently been attacking her level of experience in elective office since August 29, 2008 that are doing that. The questions I have asked which many simply can't or won't answer help show that the idea that Sarah Palin is unqualified to be President or Vice President based on her experience in elective office to this point, is total rubbish!

Most polls still show the race is close. Yesterday Gallup had McCain and Obama in a 46% to 46% tie! Obama could very well lose on November 4, or barely win. If Either of those scenario's happens on November 4, 2008, it will be obvious that McCain made the right choice in terms of giving the ticket its best chance at winning.

McCain does not have to beat Obama when it comes to women voters. He just has to win certain ones in specific states, you know, like the Democratic ones that cling to God and Religion when times are tough in western Pennsylvania, in order to win the election.

The basic argument by many liberals is that Palin does not have enough elective office experience to be considered qualified to be either Vice President or President.

How is the number of years and level of elective office experience required to be President in 1860 different from the years and level of elective office experience required to be President in 2008?

Its your contention that it is some how different making a comparison to Lincoln or another historical figure not relevant.

Wrong. Plainly wrong. What you so obviously fail to understand is that no one here has set up "some static amount of experience that someone has to have before they become Vice President or President of the United States." The only thing we have said is that it is plainly obvious to most, and now even to some within McCain's own campaign ranks, that Sarah Palin is not qualified to be VP or Pres, based almost solely on her clear unpreparedness and lack of knowledge on the issues most important to the US and its citizens today.

Simply because she is obviously unprepared does not mean that there is a static level of experience that must be met in order to be prepared. If she came in with her present level of experience but also showed herself to be a quick learner possessing a keen intellect, an ability to display a fundamentally sound understanding of the issues and the ability to field questions and speak comfortably, intelligently and logically about those issues, I doubt anyone would be saying she's unqualified. But she hasn't displayed anything even close to that.

How anyone can honestly and objectively look at her interviews and think she's ready to be the VP is beyond me. Even her own handlers are admitting she's not. Quite honestly, I believe anyone who looks at her interviews and thinks they're anything besides embarassing is so overwhelmingly partisan they can't even face up to reality anymore.

Look at her statements on foreign policy. Do you honestly believe that's the kind of understanding we should have from our second in command?

Look at her statements on the economic crisis. Is that the kind of understanding we should have from our second in command?

Look at her statements on culture (people who travel abroad are from some culture that isn't used to working all their lives). Is that kind of understanding we want from our second in command?

Do you want a VP who is treated by her own administration as someone who should be shielded from questions for fear of her appearing out of her depth? Is that the kind of strength of character, intellect and strong leadership you want at the top?

Face it, she's an embarassment, and for John McCain to have decided she was the best person for the job is an insult to all Americans, and quite frankly, unfair to her. She's clearly unprepared.
