    We all know the important duties carried out by the second daughter in a presidential administration.

    A second daughter with a kid? How will she be able to perform her myriad of critical responsibilities while caring for a newborn baby?

    Clearly such a distraction would bring our country to a standstill if said duties were not performed.

    I fear for our Republic.

    you are sounding terrified my dear

    I haven't seen ANYONE say that Bristol even has responsiblities as the "second daughter"

    I think you are projecting again.

    I think it's reasonable to question how Palin can serve both her daughter's needs AND campaign for VP?

    I'm ecstatic.

    The Clinton years and 2004 taught us that excessive viciousness against a politician will merely garner sympathy and support for the recipient.

    I beg to you PLEASE keep pushing these insane smears against Sarah Palin.

    PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASE :badgrin::eusa_clap:

    so you actually like the Clintons after watching how they were continually smeared? good to know!

    We are on a message board, why can't we discuss this without you and others in your camp getting your knickers in a twist?

    Bizarre. This is out of left field. Maybe I missed it, but I haven't heard anyone say anything about the duties of second daughter.

    The issue that's being laughed about (or praised, if you're a rightwinger) is that old man McCain evidently rushed impulsively into choosing Palin.

    The old man won his primary in March, and had six months to vet a qualified VP candidate - someone who could fill his shoes on day one, if the old man kicked the bucket.

    Apparently, the old man wanted Lieberman. But, it seems at the last minute (perhaps even on the night of Obama's speech) there was some massive flip flopping going on, and McCain ended up picking someone he'd only met once in his life - six months ago - and someone he never even interviewed for the VP slot. Someone, who was mayor of a small village in Alaska 20 months ago. Someone with extremist views on abortion, climate change, and abstinence only education that would horrify all independent, moderate, and enlightened women.

    It might not matter in the end. VPs don't determine elections. But, its possible the Old Man got rushed into a spur of the moment and ill concieved pick. Not exactly a great testament to his judgment and ability to mull decisions and come to pragmatic conclusions.

    I ask the same question when Obama's religious affiliations are brought up.

    Actually - a darn good post. No lie. I doubt McCain rushed into this, and really don't think any of the supposed dirt on Palin will make one iota of a difference in 2 months, but other than that, not bad.

    So then you find the disgusting and malicious comments about Obama equally offensive?

    I don't think Palin's white trashiness will make a bit of difference. ;)
