    My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate - from the FBI's 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israel's. And let's face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I don't know what the term is in Austrian for that...

    dude, as a general matter I agree that Palin can't stop talking, but the McCain camp was run by fools.
    The McCain camp was run by fools.....and it was those fools that convinced him to pick an idiot like Palin in a hail mary attempt to salvage his campagin. For the sake of our country its a blessing that it didn't work.

    ....that said....I'm not confusing anything. Social Conservative are radical NUTS. I can respect Barry Goldwater true conservatives....but the extremist evangelical social agenda embraced by the so called big government "Social Conservatives" is simply wacko.

    If anyone has been unfairly villified by the media, it's Sarah Palin and her family. And it was all done to protect the one they had already decided was going to be president.

    See.....she has played the victim card....and you have swallowed it hook, line and sinker. There is no one that plays the martyr card better than Palin...and what you should be upset about is that she uses her family in every way to manipulate you.

    What you are missing Barb is that there is a big difference betweena gaffe....and being completely clueless and uneducated. Palin displayed on numerous ocassions that she was ignorant of the very basics that you would expect from someone seeking the second highest position in the country. People can forgive the gaffes, but not the lack of intelligence.

    This guy is a piece of garbage. He won't appoint a muslim to his cabinet or courts because they believe in Allah. What a load of crap.

    the entire "OMG she's, like SO STUPID and RIGHT NUT WINGER and stuff, like, Man!" crowd.

    look, i agree she doesn't sound intelligent on television. but neither would I - that's why I come here and type so i can look at my words before i "say" them. sounding intelligent is different from actually being intelligent - anyone who has worked with former President Bush W, for example, will tell you that the man is a voracious reader and a great student of history. but to hear the man speak? Oye Vei, no wonder comedians accused him of sticking coloring books.

    Sarah Palin, whatever else she has or has not done, successfully ran an insurgent campaign against one of the more "entrenched interest" parties (and a sitting Republican Governor) in the country (Alaskan Republican party was bad - I was quite relieved when Ted Stevens lost. Even though it helped Democrats achieve a fillibuster-proof majority in the Senate, it was worth it to cleanse the party name of that man) to become the youngest person and the first woman to be governor of her state. then she did it again once she got into office (she wasn't very popular with significant sections of her states' party over this), negotiated (and beat) several multinational oil companies into increasing their payments to her state, was listed as one of America's most successful reformer governors (and hilariously, as a moderate, by Time Magazine), and since then, has built a national movement and a multimillion dollar industry around herself. You don't do that if you are an incompetent idiot.

    Far right wing hard core Republican? The woman lodged charges against her own party chairman for corruption, joined with a Democrat Senator in forcing out a Republican Attorney General over ethics issues, unseated a sitting Republican Governor by running on a clean government platform, and then upon getting into office, swiftly expanded the rights of homosexual partners and raised taxes.

    can anyone name for me a single Republican Presidential candidate today willing to run for office on a platform of getting rid of anyone in the Republican Party with questionable ethics, expanding the rights of homosexual partners of federal employees, and raising taxes?

    was Palin the victim of the media? no, she put herself out there and has since refused to shut up. You can't be the "victim" of someone you're in a shooting war with. I would say that her family has been, and that makes me worry for Cheri Daniels. But Sarah absolutely was the subject of an organized media hit job that successfully "defined" her public image. I fault her and the McCain campaign for not being able to predict and overcome such a move - when you are the Republican running for President, obviously MSNBC, CNN, and WaPo aren't in your corner. To not have a media strategy designed to beat this kind of a thing is inexcusable, and deepens my loathing for much of McCain's campaign staff.

    She wasn't exposed by some honest-and-above-the-fray-we're-just-asking-questions-media, she was beaten by an organized campaign that successfully negated the public image that would have come from her tenure in Alaska and replaced it with their own. that's what happens to you in politics - and don't get in the kitchen if you can't take the heat. Ever since then she's been trying to some how come back and re-win a battle that is already lost, apparently unwilling to admit that when you wrestle with pigs, you both get dirty, but the pig enjoys it.

    or maybe she does too, now, who knows. She's supposed to be a fairly combative, competitive person. But that (and a few other things including yes, her lack of experience) is why I don't want her as President and don't want her running. Because she lacks the personal gravitas and ability to hold back and remain above the fray that we need from a chief executive / commander in chief. The President can't be getting in catfights with reporters they don't like - they should ignore the fact that they don't like the reporters, and let people two or more tiers down go on television to defend the administration. Palin instead is hyperactive and hyperresponsive - she can't (for some reason) delegate it to others and she can't (for some reason) remain above the fray.

    but the "they"? the "they" is the people who try to look down their noses on her as some stupid far-right-wing ignorant evangelical rube - because they have bought the media image and don't even realize that they are the ones getting played. there are plenty of good reasons not to want Sara Palin in the Republican Primary or in the White House. but a Caricature isn't one of them.

    Does anyone care that this guy says he refuses to appoint Muslims to his white house or to judicial roles?
