Though if any ticket with Quayle can win, we must not underestimate her, as we underestimated Bush. We can't fall into that trap anymore.

agreed. i totally understand why she was picked from a political strategery POV.

she just reveals so much about McCain, it's kind of breathtaking.

and this is a good indication about how they'll govern.

Obama made a strong, centrist, cautious, thoughtful, almost expected choice.

McCain double-downed on breasts.

and Jesus riding dinosaurs. and murdering innocent polar bears.

State legislature in Maine is a part-time job too, in general.

I wonder if it's part-time in Illinois ???

Gustav has kicked Palin off the news.
No, I've seen Palin and Gustov basically spliting the coverage so far today on the three cable news channels. I think the McCain camp just wanted to make sure Obama didn't dominate the weekend. Now his speech is, at best, the third biggest story of the weekend.

So, the potential next Vice President of the United States of America was chosen because of the choice's ability to knock something down a peg on a specific weekend's newscast?

yes. precisely. she wasn't chosen for any other reason.

and if you read any of the posts by the pro-Palin folk,

they all agree.

but as everyone has said, and as the McCain folk said was the reason they were waiting for the VP, was they were seeking to own the news cycle, and not let was turned out to be a grand slam of a convention speech reverberate on the news for 3 days.

this was shrewd of the McCain folk. if he chose Romney or Pawlenty, everyone would have been all, "oh, ok, that's what we thought. we know these people."

instead, he trots out someone completely unknown, and now the news cycle is all, "WTF?"

so shrewd on the McCain campaign's part.

also, totally cynical, completely irresponsible, and probably going to blow up in their faces because it exposes just what John McCain has always been about, despite all his "Good Soldier/Maverick" pretensions: John McCain.

What are you talking about? Biden is the third most liberal senator in the country. Obama completely abandoned his "change" facade to pick someone who is been in the senate for 36 years. As someone on TV said the other day, Obama flinched in his first big decision. He should have gone with a governor, not someone who is part of the problem. How was he being "thoughtful?"

McCain did what McCain does. Think outside the box, pick someone few people expected, who has bucked her own party, something I have seen none of from Obama or Biden.

also, Palin is:

1. a creationist
2. hates polar bears
3. loves to drill, drill, drill for oil
4. believes global warming exists, but "isn't man-made"
5. already has a scandal
6. has no interest in foreign policy
7. has only met McCain once
8. is anti-choice



so, aside from all the other reasons, those are some of the things i don't like about Sarah Palin.

still, she says she used to smoke pot. and i bet she's fun. and her husband's kind of attractive.
