The democrats can tear her apart easy if they try. She was only chosen because she was a woman and has nothing else going for her. She won't be able to stand a chance against Biden in the debates.
Her voice is gratingly shrill. She also is definitely going to get eviscerated by Biden. I mean it's going to be just a complete slaughter.
That "feminist organization" is just a thinly veiled anti-abortion group that started right after Roe v. Wade.
Yeah, the feminists really love staunch pro-lifers. I mean, what?
She's Harriet Miers. "We need to get a broad on the ticket. Just find one, I don't care who it is!"
Firt of all, getting an 85% approval rating in a state of 54 people is no feat. (Especially when you keep the pork rolling in.)
Secondly, it is clear that McCain doesn't think much of women if he thinks we're all going to fall all over him because of her.
Thirdly, she is kinda cute in a Tina Fey way, but she ain't no Tina Fey.
The only thing I can think of is that she's a decoy. the plan is to have her taken out in some "accident" to garner the sympathy vote.
"She's known for bucking corruption and fighting wasteful spending... give her a break."
CNN: "While running for governor in 2006, though, Palin backed federal funding for the infamous [Bridge to Nowhere] , which McCain helped make a symbol of pork barrel excess.
And as mayor of the small town of Wasilla from 1996 to 2002, Palin also hired a Washington lobbying firm that helped secure $8 million in congressionally directed spending projects, known as earmarks, according to public spending records compiled by the watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste and lobbying documents."
Nice try though Billy, you're certainly staying on message if nothing else.
whats with the entrance music? did she just arrive by dog sled?
I thought it sounded like astronaut hero music. Has she been to the moon?

She wants creationism taught in schools. She also doesn't believe in abortion, no matter the circumstance.
She didn't even know what the vice president's job was.
A little naked pandering courtesy of Mr. Rove. Really risky, though, especially if Clinton actively campaigns for Obama. Maverick shmaverick.
She promised ol' Todd a little surprise for their 20th anniversary tonight...........Todd's gonna be gettin' some mud on the helmet.
Hahaha...Bristle, Willow, Piper and Trig Pacman Van Palen... Nice!!!!!

Interesting choice for McCain's VP, considering that she doesn't know what a VP does (http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/8/29/11757/7150/175/578516 )
Palin: "As for that V.P. talk all the time, Iíll tell you, I still canít answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the V.P. does every day? Iím used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that V.P .slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that weíre trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question."
She also seems to be saying that 1) it's someone else's responsibility to tell her the information, not *her* responsibility to be informed, and 2) that her first thought of a national position like VP, where she should be representing the entire country, is how can she use it to benefit her home state, already the biggest pork-barrel recipient.
And speaking of pork-barrel, in this first part of her speech, Palin lied about her position on indicted Senator Ted Steven's $315 million bridge to nowhere (see http://mediamatters.org/items/200808290023). She says "I told Congress 'thanks but no thanks' on that bridge to nowhere", which gets applause, but in fact, she had supported the project (http://www.adn.com/sarahpalin/story/510378.html) and only withdrew that support in Sept 2007 when it turned out that Alaska would have to pay for too much of the bridge's cost.
It doesn't bode well that one of the first words out of her mouth when addressing the nation for the first time was a lie.
The vice presidential candidate recieved a pack on the cheek by the presidental candidate.
That's never happened before.
When McCain introduces her as "the next Vice President of the United States," you can see he doesn't really believe it. God, this election is delicious.

It's like one of the characters from Drop Dead Gorgeous just went from judging a beauty pageant to running for vice president.
Oh awesome, that annoying chick from Accounts Recievable is gonna be the Republican veep pick.
