    I conceded nothing. I merely pointed out how you obsessively clung to a word and tried to build the whole case around it. The oil companies were the driving force behind Murkowski's jet. You're just going to have to learn to live with that, also.

    What does a band have to do with this thread?

    And IMO, there are many more types of conservatives than just fiscal and social. But those two are the main, generalized groupings.

    Yes, I totally agree, there are many types of conservatives.

    I think McCain might have a challenge this time with JD Hayworth joining the fray.

    McCain challenger steps down as radio host to run - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    Hayworth has some previous political issues to overcome, but it appears he's done well by the indians and is more conservative than McCain. Right now the polls don't show a lead.

    Well for one, there is an ACTUAL conservative...you know, one that is both Social AND Fiscal. Not someone who just cares about one and doesn't give a flip about the other.

    Then there is you, who is militarily conservative, socially conservative, and fiscally a BIG GOVERNMENT, BIG SPENDING liberal and governmentally a BIG GOVERNMENT EXPANSION, BIG GOVERNMENT POWER liberal.

    So....I guess based on your definition....you're a RINO my left wing friend.

    In regards to Palin, while she was useful for a national election and would've been a much bigger impact for him if he didn't use horrible political strategy, I'm unsure how useful she'd be in his state.

    The thing that kept McCain from having a landslide loss instead of a big one was Palin being on the ticket. Thanks to his horrendous political campaigning and strategizing he lost, not because of Palin.

    That said, he’s won Arizona primarily by being a moderate so attempting to grab the base’s vote with Palin will likely have a negative affect. This is doubly true if he runs an idiotic campaign once again, trying to go right himself while having Palin there already.

    If he’s smart and wants to use her he would:

    1. Bring her in only for the primaries to try and grab some of the more staunch conservative votes
    2. Keep his traditionally moderate attitude throughout the primaries to an extent and heavily throughout the general
    3. Use her ONLY for the Primaries

    Bingo, his best bet if he’s going to use her is Primaries and then cut ties during the general. And I’d only suggest that if he is looking likely to lose the primary.

    Re: Palin and McCain will campaign again

    Since there's far too many posts to thank I want to say good job to jallman. Best defense and explanation of all the various issues regarding Palin and Alaska that I've seen. It really highlights the difference between a person that's lived there and really taken the time to dig deep and those that just want to go to a liberal blog site and trust that they got all the information for them.
