Another question: Is it mandatory for every US politician or a member of their family to have had a drink driving issue at some point? Is that written in your constitution somewhere?

This thread now has more "replies" than the Presidential thread.
At least for now.

Hey, I'm not the religious fanatic(s) praying for torrential rains. If these people's prayers were "answered", wouldn't there have been innocent people hurt/affected? Why pray for others to incur pain? Don't they preach of love & family and being pro-life?

I'm so confused. That's why I never post in FYM.

I lurk on occasion, depending upon the topic. I just usually don't have anything to contribute. The regulars who I agree with do a damn fine job

So no other comment about the religious praying for a disaster? Isn't that hypocritical?

Isn't it interesting how much controversy this Palin selection is causing - look at the statistics - this thread was created August 14, 2008 and has had 8,587 views. Compare that with the Presidential thread created on July 28, 2008 which has 8,752 views. NOTHING McCain could have done would have created such a furor (especially on the "left") than this pick. We already have various conspiracy theories, as stupid and offensive as they are i.e. Palin's down's syndrome child is not really hers but her daughters...geez. These other outrageous "theories" about this being a ploy to bring in Romney or Lieberman are the most ridiculous I've ever heard - bringing in either would utterly destroy the momentum that John McCain has created with Palin. Are you people that naive that you actually cannot come to grasps with the fact that all of this is helping McCain. The only person who is responding the right way is Obama (thankfully!!!) - many of his "supporters" are frothing at the mouth about the pregnancy issue that it will backfire like nothing we've ever seen - they are playing right into the hands of the Republicans. I cannot believe how stupid some Democrats are (again, thankfully, Obama is not that stupid). Point in case: A political junkie friend of mine from New York who is a huge supporter of Obama called me yesterday. You could almost hear him salivating from the mouth about Palin's daughter being pregnant and how it would destroy her support from the Evangelicals - when I countered that it may just strengthen that support he got angry - we now know that it indeed has strengthened that support. Not only has the base been so offended by some on the left, the middle america "Mom" has been as well. This will be seen as an attack on Palin because she is a woman. I cannot stress enough what dangerous ground some Democrats are walking on. My only hope is that Obama refuses to stoop to their level. If he does not, there is still hope.
I frankly am one of those conservatives that is sick and tired of it... every time I turn on the TV. I don't know what democratic punk pundit they had on CNN tonight before the convention, but he was like... "this is a story that won't go away".

Such BS.

erm, is it just Democrats who are talking about this? it seems it's the Republicans who are on TV "defending" the pick and explaining away the drip-drip-drip of strangeness.

and it's only been 72 hours.

did the McCain campaign not see this coming? i thought she was thoroughly vetted?

it is interesting to note, the McCain campaign is lashing out at CNN for simply asking for a single example of Palin commanding the Alaska National Guard — as retribution, they pulled McCain off Larry King tonight.

"The media" is neither liberal nor conservative. It is, instead, a circus.

Cue Palin and her controversies, and you've basically given the circus exactly what they crave.

Agree. Regardless of the pundits, the bloggers and forum posters have shocked me. I'm afraid the backlash is real. If my daughter and wife are shocked by the reaction, I'm sure other households like mine are having a similar reaction.

Oh no. Thompson is now recapping John McCain's POW experience. I will not be able to tolerate the spasms/convulsions that I'm sure every Obama supporter is going through now. How dare they bring up stuff that has nothing to do with qualifications for being president!

How many conservatives to do we have in FYM? 8?

why don't you go read the Republican Convention thread instead of making self-righteous, self-serving judgments about others.
