    Why, what's the interest in Sarah Palin's family?
    The kids aren't running for any type of political office and neither is Sarah Palin for that matter.

    No she didn't. She got him votes he would not have otherwise gotten. She didn't cost him the election. The economy did, and his record. And the turnout for Obama.

    She wasn't obscure to me. I knew who she was.

    I don't need the links, thank you.

    So the Dems nominated Ferraro only because she was a woman.

    Was Obama elevated from obscurity to national prominence because he is a black man?

    I assume this was supposed to be funny? I asked a serious question. No sane person thinks she was itching to set off nukes, unless that person is so absurdly partisan that he/she can't see straight.

    When I see the words liar and plagiarist, my first thoughts go to Rand Paul,
    a confirmed liar and plagiarist who gets a pass from lamestream media .

    Excellent comparison as they are very similar things. Yes, the Dems nominated Ferraro primarily because she was a woman. Yes, she was also the beneficiary of affirmative action in much the way Palin. The Dems, at the time, needed a Hail Mary (or game changer), just as the Republicans needed it in 2008. Each thought the novelty of a woman would get out the woman's vote. And, just as most Hail Mary's are empty plays, the nominations of Ferraro and Palin came up short... except that Sarah was smart enough to make hay from the opportunity...

    I am glad you collected your US governor trading cards so you knew who Palin was... good for you... but no one else did. Thinking the Sarah Palin was prominent in her own right in July 2008 suggests you very much do indeed need the links

    Obama "earned" his way on to the ticket by being a US Senator and campaigning for the job. If you recall, he went through months of months of primaries to earn his name recognition. No one just reached out and "tapped" him into national prominence with a single phone call, as they did for Palin.

    Oh, yeah... I almost forgot this link:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/30/us...pagewanted=all

    "....Senator John McCain astonished the political world on Friday by naming Sarah Palin, a little-known governor of Alaska and self-described “hockey mom” with almost no foreign policy experience, as his running mate on the Republican presidential ticket...."

    I particularly like the use of the word "astonished"

    Sarah, bless her heart, was quick to capitalize on the move, recognizing it for what it was:

    “Hillary left 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest glass ceiling in America, but it turns out the women of America aren’t finished yet, and we can shatter that glass ceiling once and for all,” Ms. Palin said to huge applause.

    When was the last time a Vice Presidential candidate campaigned for the job?

    "No one else" knew who Palin was? Interesting. And factually incorrect.

    Senator McCain's pick astonished me because I thought he was going to tap Rob Portman or Tim Pawlenty or another governor, not because he picked Palin. Maybe I'm more astute than other people. I pay attention to this country's governors and read the papers, and yes, her name was in the papers prior to her getting tapped. Cute on the "trading cards" comment, but wrong. It's called paying attention.

    Odds are you won't have to worry about your pants, at least not until after Jan 2017. And, by then you'll have Hillary opening up a can of whoop-ass on what's left of the GOP.
