    I can't decide if I vote for "laugh" or "cry" on this one. She does not know a thing about national level issues, international affairs, or economics. Its like the GOP opened her cute little head and replaced the half a brain that was there with a series of talking points:

    Katie Couric: Why isn't it better, Gov. Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries; allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

    Gov. Sarah Palin: That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health-care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping the -- it's got to be all about job creation, too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health-care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, scary thing. But one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we've got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that.

    If she screws up on TV too bad, she will be taken off the ticket with some appropriate time with my family remark.

    If she was a Dem, the right would be trying to impeach her at this time.

    What complete hypocrisy.

    Right, and you can thank the deregulations for this. Free market. No regulations. We can totally trust the rich CEOs. Only the poor and middle class like US need laws or regualtions.

    For 7 years, there has been no control on Bush's buddies and now we are paying for it. Of course, it the Dems fault.

    I keep 8 chords of firewood in the backyard for just such an eventuality.

    Fortunately, the betting odds are 10% that McCain will cut his losses find a new running mate. If that happens, I'll vote for him. If not, I'll stay home.

    Biden is like a Turkey, gobble gobble gobble, he can't stop talking.
    Palin is like a headless chicken, lots of fluttering and running around, but there is simply nothing there. One time, just one time, this airhead was exposed to rather friendly questions by a journalist, and she makes an utter fool of herself. McCain was forced to spend valuable political capital in a failed move to postpone his debate, just so Cinderella could have a few more days in "debate camp" to get ready. She is an albatross, and needs to be dumped.

    You think McCain will be a maverick and pick Lieberman? "Listen, I tried to pander to my base, but look what I got stuck with!" The convention's over with, people know his message and they'll get a liberal. Ron Paul has never looked so good.

    It is the fault of a pact signed in blood between the religious right and the republican party. An unholy alliance between big dirty business and big dirty government.

    John McCain has been trying to bring the republican party back to its small government, balanced budget roots. He is trying to change the republican party from within. Why he associates himself with the she-devil temptress of the religious right, I have no idea.
