    Newsweek is an interesting magazine - known for liberal views - some people like it. Despite all that has been thrown at Governor Palin, she just keeps sailing forward - gaining in popularity every day. According to new polls - such as the ABC News / Washington Post - surveys show white women have changed - from backing Obama by 8 points to now supporting the McCain-Palin ticket by 12 points. The women are saying Palin increases their faith in McCain's decisions. Perhaps Newsweek and others have done nothing but help the McCain-Palin ticket after all.

    The McCain campaign will not even let her speak to the press until they coach her on her answers and she is "comfortable" talking to a hand-picked interviewer: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080909/ap_on_el_pr/palin_playing_it_safe

    Is this how she would lead the country if anything happened to McCain? She could not talk to another world leader until she felt comfortable.

    Only in America? That is the first thing that came to my mind. At least she is not pointing it at anyone.

    All the conjecture about Mrs. McCain and Governor Palin mean nothing - literally nothing - mere conversation. For anyone wanting to cut through all the left wing rhetoric - just listen to or read the transcripts of Obama's new interviews with O'Reilly or Stepanopoulos. No wonder the polls are so much in favor of McCain.

    The GOP may have received a bounce from their national convention last week but there is no way Hillary supporters will back this woman. Watch those approval ratings disappear in the upcoming week or so.

    I can't wait until the media starts interviewing her. She going to get crushed by everyone except maybe Fox News.

    I think Jay Leno said that was the gun she just had pointed at Levi telling him he had to marry Bristol and come to St.Paul to hold her hand.

    They're busily cramming as much into her head as possible behind closed doors. Failing that, I'm sure she'll be wearing a miniaturized headset in her ear to take cues from her puppet masters while she's sweating it in her pantsuit during an actual debate.

    More like, Palin is immune to criticism. She is forgiven for hypocrisy -- seeking to legislate a conservative Christian agenda that her own family didn't live up to (and whose could?). She is forgiven for not knowing a thing about so many of the things that we want our national leaders to know -- she knows zip about foreign policy and will play victim if she's taken to task for it. She is forgiven for protecting herself from the press -- only willing to speak in a cozy situation with reporters. She is forgiven for lying -- saying she was the impetus behind nixing the bridge to nowhere, which is patently untrue. And she will be forgiven for using her office to settle family scores -- the infamous brother-in-law-gate scandal.

    Why? Because people identify with her. I'm sure she's a nice person and very sincere in her beliefs. But she's playing in the big leagues now. And the know nothings who love her so much simply don't care that she is (1) ignorant, (2) hypocritical, (3) not truthful, and (4) willing to abuse power. God Bless those evangelicals and their remarkable Christian ability to forgive so much -- in one of their own. If Palin were a "Liberal" (or a nonwhite), she'd be hung out to dry and villified by these forgiving souls. The only white conservatives who STILL get the ire of Palin and the like are, of course, gays like the Rev. Haggard.

    It is a sad day for America when a fundamentalist former secessionist is perceived as a "game changer" in a Presidential race. How long has it been since William Jennings Bryan died.

    I can see it now: Inherit the Wind -- 2008. Ugh


    Palin always has the good ol' sexim card on standby in case the general voting public bothers to do a bit of legwork sees through the RNC's naked lies.

    A lot of what's been shaping public opinion of Palin in a positive light is the media's imperative to spin everything negative about the McCain/Palin ticket into something positive. Palin's vitriol filled acceptance speech was reported by the media as "energizing" instead of being offensive. As long as they need ratings and advertising dollars, they won't let McCain/Palin slip behind until election day. It's a sick game that they play with the future of this country.

    Shes' Cheney in drag. Buckshot, oil, secrecy, media protection, abuse of power...and so on.

    And what's Cheney's approval rating these days?

    If I was a hunting partner of Palin's, I'd start worrying about my face.

    Say, that's right. Why even have an election? You know you people feel entitled to the White House all the time. That's really why the nut-o-sphere started trashing Clinton from day one. It wasn't the womanizing or the pretend scandals...it was the outrageous fact that apparently the election of 1992 meant that the Republicans were actually going to have to leave the executive. And here they thought it was just a straw poll and Bush the senior would stay in office because, after all, he's a Republican and therefore entitled.

    That attitude remains to this day. Democrats are usurpers, Republicans are entitled. If it ain't precisely fascism, it's awfully like monarchy.

    After looking at the photo again, I realized a small boy in the background is also armed with a gun. I hope it wasn't loaded.

    I love how Sarah Palin responded to Charles Gibson's question about the Bush Doctrine. She didn't know what the hell that was and he had to explain it to her.
