    Why she we would be accepting of a totally unqualified candidate for Senate if we're going to be outraged by the lack of qualifications for Veep? At least an argument could be made that Palin was somewhat qualified for Veep given her actual governing experience. Kennedy has zero, nothing whatsoever to qualify her for a Senate seat.

    So, lets see if the outrage ensues from Democrats about her lack of qualification...

    Or do Democrats view Senate seats as mere symbols to be traded away for campaign cash?

    Semantics games are weak.


    She has no experience period and wants the seat. Of course "entitlement" comes into play to her.

    Actually, it only does if you are arrogant enough to assume to know all of her reasons for throwing her hat in the ring.

    I didn't seriously question Palin's qualifications until I saw her interviews.

    Let's see a comparison of the number of crucial votes a Senator takes during his/her term versus the number of V.P s that have become president because of a death.

    It was Vice-President Garner that said the office isn't worth a bucket of warm spit He was right.

    Yay! More whining. Here, let me edit the post so it doesn't hurt your fragile sensibilities anymore.

    Self control for what? We were discussing something and you started whining about personal attacks, which seems to be what you always resort to.

    Look, I'll save you the trouble. I'm going to cease this conversation with you and will remember in the future to avoid discussing anything with you because you have fragile sensibilities and take things as personal attacks even when they weren't intended that way. Fair enough?
