    It's all part of the plan (which Obama has been played right into).

    We can only hope. Well it may be too audacious to hope. I'll just pray.

    I agree. From the beginning McCain has shown he is beyond party lines and does what is in the best interest of the country. He knew Palin was the best VP and took her knowing the media would do their best to trash her. He knows we have a serious situation in the economy and he suspends his campaign to deal with it.

    What's Obama doing on the verge of an economic disaster? Whining about the debate Friday.

    No one who would pick Palin as Veep gives a rat's patoot about this country. Fantasize all you want.

    I do like the way you can delude yourself into beliving spin from WND... it's kind of cool watching group psychosis. ;)

    And ninja baby... yah.. I'm sure McCain planned to be 6 points down in the polls today.

    If you honestly think Palin is the best politician - hell, best person period - in the WHOLE of your country to be your VP, you no longer have the right to wonder why the rest of the world laughs at Neocon US of A....

    This may come as a shock, but we don't elect Presidents by popular vote (much less polls that oversample registered Democrats and blacks for that matter).

    We have this little thing called the Electoral College. Ever heard of it? Doubt it. But whatever.

    If I'm an Obama supporter and the polls are within the MOE in various battleground states - which they are - then I'm worried.

    America is preparing to to Bradley Effect Ubama's ass :badgrin:
