• How can there be a 'there, there?" when:

    "She never directly asked me to fire him," Monegan said.

    It sure looks like there is 'nothing there'.

    Dem's are grasping at straws as they recoil from the Palin shock of today.

    You guys are missing what just happened.  McCain chose Palin for the following 4 reasons:

    1. Solidify and electrify the Republican Christian right base. Dobson came out today to endorse the ticket (he didn't even endorse 'W' in 2000) because of the Palin pick. This is McCain's "Ground Game", without it, he loses and he knew it.

      2. New theme: 'Maverick Reform' - all of this McSame stuff now goes out the window - he is going to pound the reform theme, with Palin's outsider and out-of-the-box assistance, to convince America that HE is the Agent of Change. (Also, won't be hearing about the houses anymore).
       3. Palin will attract a solid percentage of undedcided independent and some white working class women Democrats - not many but enough to make a difference in small town Ohio, Michigan, and PA.
       4. Kiss those western state dreams good-bye Obama! Sarah is a woman of the West. NRA, hunter, pro-drilling, Mom with 5 kids. Fits into the strong western woman brand - Goodbye Colorado, Nevada, Montana, and New Mexico! Sarah has just stolen them from the Dem's

  • on a comment on I have just one question over 5 years ago

    Of Obama, McCain, Biden, and Palin, who has the most executive experience?

    Governor Sarah Palin

  • on a comment on I have just one question over 5 years ago

    McCain picked her to energize the Christian base, from her Wikipedia listing:

    On April 18, 2008, while in office as governor, Palin gave birth to her second son and fifth child, Trig Paxson Van Palin, who prenatal genetic testing showed would have Down syndrome.[76] She returned to the office three days after giving birth.[16] Her decision to have the baby was applauded by the pro-life community.[77][78]

    Details of Palin's personal life have contributed to her political image. She hunts, eats moose hamburger, ice fishes, rides snowmobiles, and owns a float plane.[18][79] Palin holds a lifetime membership with the National Rifle Association. Her oldest son deploys to Iraq on September 11th, 2008.
    Her current approval rating as Governor is 88%, the highest of any Governor in the country.

    You are simply in denial. This pick is a grand slam. By the way, did someone say there was a speech in Denver last night?

    "Although we weren't able to shatter this highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it, and the light is shining through like never before." - Hillary Clinton

    Who has the most executive experience?

    Obama, McCain, Biden, or Palin?

    Governor Sarah Palin

  • on a comment on Palin? Yikes! over 5 years ago

    Of the four candidates now: Obama, McCain, Biden, and Palin, which has the most executive experience?

    Sarah Palin

  • Yes, that's exactly what's about to happen.

  • I agree with your summary with one exception.

    What won't fade is the effect on the Christian conservative base. Up until this morning McCain did not have an excited base to hit the polls, that has all changed today and will extend right up to election day.  For this reason alone this pick is a game changer. As a bonus he picks up a good chunk of disaffected white working class women.

  • The power of the Palin vote can be found in Wikipedia:

    On April 18, 2008, Palin gave birth to her second son, Trig Paxson Van Palin, who has Down syndrome.[12] She returned to the office three days after giving birth.[13] Palin refused to let the results of prenatal genetic testing change her decision to have the baby. "I'm looking at him right now, and I see perfection," Palin said. "Yeah, he has an extra chromosome. I keep thinking, in our world, what is normal and what is perfect?"[13]

    Her oldest son is now serving in Iraq.

    The Republican evangelical base is about to be electrified - This move will take disgruntled Hillary voters AND Christian conservatives.  Obama's "Ground Game" has now been neutralized.

  • on a comment on McCain VP Thread over 5 years ago

    Agreed, bold and very smart of McCain.

    The power of the Palin vote can be found in Wikipedia:

    On April 18, 2008, Palin gave birth to her second son, Trig Paxson Van Palin, who has Down syndrome.[12] She returned to the office three days after giving birth.[13] Palin refused to let the results of prenatal genetic testing change her decision to have the baby. "I'm looking at him right now, and I see perfection," Palin said. "Yeah, he has an extra chromosome. I keep thinking, in our world, what is normal and what is perfect?"[13]

    Her oldest son is now serving in Iraq.

    Anyone who thinks this is not a powerful counterpick to Biden is smoking and inhaling.
