You say you just spoke to a governor, a former governor, and a senator like it's completely ordinary for people to speak to such people.

I hope we get Virginia in November. We might need it.

So the latest CNN poll has them in a dead heat? I guess this just reaffirms what you all feel, right?

That America is made up of a bunch of idiots right?

That polls are meaningless right now? Yes. Yes it indeed confirms that.

But it does affirm that at 48% of thosed polled are voting for McCain, regardless that Palin has a 17 year old pregnant daughter, and she used to influence to fire a state trooper!

IDIOTS!

Give those stories time to take flight...

Not sure when the poll was taken but we didn't find out about the daughter until the weekend and it was a labor day weekend. Personally I don't think the daughter story should matter. But it does make me wonder two things: it makes me question how much McCain really knew, or did he make some hasty pandering I think I may grab some women votes decision?

And how the "parents are to blame" type folks are going to react?


As far as the state trooper story, just like many have said in here it probably won't bother most people because he was a "bad" man. But in actuality it should, if there was an abuse of power it should make people question here ability to hold even more power.

The Democratic convention appears to have helped solidify support for Barack Obama among former Hillary Clinton supporters, with the percent saying they will vote for Obama in November moving from 70% pre-convention to 81% after the convention.
This is the brand new Gallup poll for those who think such things matter.

i think it's too bad that you're taking news and using it to confirm an assumption you seem to need to make.

i think people shouldn't vote for McCain because it's clear he makes impulsive, rash decisions that aren't thought through. do you want such a live wire facing down Putin?

that, and he totally, totally caved to the base. he wanted Liberman. but the base would have started a riot in MSP.

as for my own opinion, i don't care for a minute about the status of Ms. Palin's family life.

i do care how her family life has been trotted out as the central reason for many to vote for her. and i find it ironic that this central justification has been totally unhinged.

impressive honesty from former Bush speechwriter David Frum:

Quote:
That said: Can we conservatives please stop kidding ourselves about Barack Obama's "qualifications"? Yes, if I had been a Democratic donor back in 2006, I'd sure worry about whether Barack Obama had what it took to be president. That was before he took on the toughest political operation in America, before he beat Bill and Hillary Clinton, before he won 18 million primary votes.

Obama's nomination was not handed to him. He fought hard for it and won against the odds. "Qualifications" predict achievement. Once you have achieved, it doesn't matter what your qualifications are. Who cares whether the guy who built a big company from nothing didn't have much of a resume when he started? But if you are applying to run a big company built by somebody else, the resume matters ...

The worst mistake in any fight is to under-estimate your opponent's abilities. Look what happened to the people who under-estimated Reagan. If conservatives are to have any hope in the coming weeks, we should wake up to the fact that we face in Barack Obama a formidable man, who appeals to something important and deep in the American electorate. He's not a superman, he has vulnerabilities, he can be beaten. But he won't be beaten until we who are trying to beat him understand why and how he has come so far.

Talk about ignorance...

It's incredibly sad that this country praises people like him, and makes them extraordinarily wealthy.
