It couldn't possibly be that the voters, having seen the Republicans ruin the economy, would like to see a change.

Talk about CONSPIRACY!!!

Being a fan of Obama as a person I wouldn't wish this economic crisis on my worst enemy. It seems the Republicans are doing all they can to lose the election i.e. voting against the bailout despite ruining McCain - not to mention all the Palin flub -up's. If she completely bombs in the debate we'll know that - the reason I'm so suspicious is that the Sarah Palin we see on all these talk shows is NOT the same Sarah Palin we saw at the Republican convention - either she was so overhandled by the McCain team that she completely lost any of her personality or someone's telling her to act like a complete bimbo. Granted, it's most likely that the McCain team has overcoached her to the point of no return but it's strange that after such a strong debut that it's been so downhill ever since...not slightly downhill but like a thousand feet over a cliff downhill (which makes me a little suspicious). Another scenerio, and one that is highly unlikely but still possible, is that we'll see the return of the Sarah Palin of the convention and she'll knock one out of the park. Actually, come to think of it, at this point all she has to do is not drool or speak in tounges and she could come out looking like the winner.

Given your last couple of elections why wouldn't I be suspicious of some kind of foul play.

Why the suspicion? She sang the rhetoric to the choir the night of the convention. Anyone can do that! Hell I could even fake my way through a Republican convention speech. You don't have to have a grasp of the issues or be able to think on your feet with a convention speech, that's the easiest part of being a politician. We are now seeing the real Palin. There's no conspiracy here.

Fox News always comes through.

YouTube - Nearly unanimous vote for Obama = "split" on FOX

I love the old couple in the background. The guy goes to put his hand up for McCain, and his wife grabs it and pulls it back down.

My favourite Fox show at the moment is Fox & Friends. It's a laugh a minute.

O.K. I'll give you that but how did she ever become Gov. of Alaska???
And why is it alot of folks that have seen debate footage of her say that she's actually quite good??? The person we saw on the talk shows could never get elected Gov. or win a debate. I think the McCain team overcoached her to the point of becoming a robotic personality - probably by mistake. But there is no doubt in my mind if she had been left alone to be herself she might have been able to pull off the Ronald Reagan trick - somehow being able to speak to "average folks" despite most intellectuals thinking your'e a simpleton. All you Obama supporters should thank your lucky stars it didn't turn out that way - it certainly looked like it was going to.

That still does not explain why the overwhelming majority of Republicans voted against a bill that John McCain had asked that they support...and in an election year!!! What's with that??? Do they think they've already lost or that the economy is going to get so bad that they'd rather leave the mess for Obama and come back in 2012????

Local politics don't get that much TV time that isn't scripted. But you're right, she probably is overcoached, she doesn't seem like a woman who really paid attention all that much to issues outside her state so she had to be. Lots of information in a short time, she wasn't ready for this. Most of us saw this coming from a mile away.

Well he pretty much stated what most of us have seen, she answers in non-answers...

Wow, who knew one race had so many debates...
