    Oh yeah, back on topic... Thanks.

    I think Palin probably does spin. She is a politician of course. The other possibility is that she just doesn't understand the question... ya know those big gotta questions... and is just throwing out words and catch phrases because she has to say something.

    Of course, my question is 'why would she bother, unless she plans to run?'
    The words "spin" and "politician" are basically synonymous lol. Everyone does it, from Obama to Palin.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It is the American way... and if you voted for McCain, it's also your way.

    If nobody did this, and this wasn't a popular tacit we wouldn't have an concept of a strawman, poisoning the well, etc.... Our political system is NOT designed so we believe best man wins and everybody shows respect for the winner. We don't see the contenders shake hands and say, "I know you love this country as much as me. I hope we can work to improve it together."

    It's mud slinging, swift boating, slandering, libeling, and pandering to the fearful... Politics is dirty, and people outright show disrepect to each other. On top of that, politicians often repeat lies over and over again. You turn on McCain he says Obama says, Obama says no he didn't say that but McCain says, and McCain says he didn't say that. Fact checkers say they are both telling white lies and outright lies. Both sides do that ****, and you even do it yourself on these boards.... lol

    More accountable reps.

    Who would be against this? This is the foundation that far left and thier ilk like you want to destroy in the name of statism.
    Nobody is really against that, but the TP is nuts. I would never join it, and it isn't about moderates with simple ideas. It's mostly all republicans who are super far right and want big government in our personal lives, but small government for big business.

    And when they do concede gracefully, we don't believe it because they were so poisonous in their campaigning.

    2) Obama was the lessor of two evils.

    I'm not saying I buy the latter as opposed to the former, but that was the chatter immediately following the 2008 Presidential election.
    I thought McCain was ok, until he got Palin on board. I know an anarchist, and he doesn't believe in voting... but when McCain grabbed her, he voted for Obama. lol. He said he couldn't handle the thought of her being in the white house. He is also Jewish, and she pissed him off with her pandering to Jewish Americans and blabbering on about the Israeli flag.
