    Now another liberal, George Wills, is calling Palin a disaster. Compares her to Don Quixote's servant.

    Newsweek also has her on the cover this week.

    I watched Joe Scarborough on Colbert last night.

    He basically said Bush was a disaster, and the Republicans have screwed up so bad, they don't deserve to be elected.

    Well it was about time McCain called out the democrats on this financial crisis. It had to be worked out of him though, with a question in Wisconsin today from a realtor. "She asked if he would go after "everyone" who created this mess, & those within the government too.

    Could not believe it--McCain finally did it. He told what happened who (Criss Dodd & Barney Franks) who blocked every effort to reign these agencies in.

    Americans would like to know who is to blame for their 401 K's loosing half of their value, why we had to come up with 100's of billions of dollars, etc. etc. McCain never told them until today. It may be too late.

    Palin was the worst move of the campaign. McCain picked the wrong woman to try and grab the Hillary votes. He did think he had a way to grab a large % of 18M votes. He just picked the wrong woman. To little experience and to hickville to grab any real voters that may have run from Hillary to McCain. A you betcha doncha know hockey mom is not Hillary Clinton. Now Palin is the rock that McCain can't get out from under. He get teach her enough in time, He can't drop her from the ticket and he can't hide her far enough away without people knowing she has gone missing.

    Thank you for an early Christmas John McCain Palin was just what we wanted. Darn tootin doncha know. 'Wink" "Wink"

    Palin brought up this exact interview. She said she was frustrated with Katie Courick's questions. Stating she wanted to answer questions that were important to Americans--Like the economy, energy independance, this financial crisis, etc.

    I have to agree with Sarah. Not too many people are concentrating on previous supreme court decisions, when we worried about going into a global depression the likes of the 1930's. It's obvious Katie was trying to do a "gotcha" question. But of course, Katie Courick is a bona-fide member of the Obama media networks.

    Horseshit double bull crap.

    3 months earlier she protested the Exon Valdez Supreme Court decision and its effect on Alaska. She couldn't remember that?

    Please, when she isn't scripted, she shows her true intellect.

    NewsWeak says Palin is a problem? She's only a problem for the Liberals who see that she has re-energized the base.
    If Obama isn'tup by ten points on the eve of the election, he aint gonna' win.

    George Will? Didn't he write that really boring book on Baseball?

    Obviously, educated and knowledgable Cons are deserting Palin in droves. Its obvious to everyone with an 8th grade education that she's simply out of her league. Winking at the audience and giving corny shout outs to third graders is pure amateur hour.

    For the uneducated Cons however, don't expect them to ever admit that Palin was just another Dan Qauyle, only worse.

    They still haven't admitted their trillion dollar war on Iraq was a mistake.
