    Now let me say this is really to be a humorous thread... I walk into the locker room a little while ago.. a right wing fanatic (he really is, all he talks about is the "leftists this and that") meets me and talks about the Palin woman and "Troopergate" I sit down pull my Ipod and there is Sean Hannity
    (of FOX's "Hannity and Combs") interviewing the Palin woman on Fox on the tv there in the locker room. Hearing Palin's voice is bad enough but up comes a gentleman with the locker next to me. My right wing friend and he start talking and he pulls off his jacket to reveil "Sarah Palin (woman) for Vice President"....

    That was enough, it made me sick ......icon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gif

    That would of totally put me over the edge. I would of been out of thre in no time flat. I have had all of the Palin Woman I can take. icon_mad.gif
    The question now is realy who is runing for the president office? Seems like if Palin is not with McCain he does not have much of a following. The woman still does not have the answers and not out on her own.
    Maybe they should use some of the money they did not use to build the "bridge to nowhere" to help some of the companies that are the backbone of the USA. Oh that's right, the money is in Alaska even though it will not be used for what it was intended, from what I hear she kept the money.icon_question.gificon_question.gificon_question.gif

    Awwww, now c'mon, Chris...Just wait till the "Hottest V.P. from the Coldest State" T-shirts hit the streets...we may need to sedate you ;-)

    Speaking of the Sean Hannity interview of Governor Palin...I thought she did just fine. I know many of you guys loathe her but, honestly, I find her very likable. She's refreshing to me...I almost like that she's not so overloaded with experience or tainted by the Washington establishment. She is no dummy, and I would not be the least bit concerned with her as the V.P.

    Hypocritical much? She isn't overloaded with experience, suddenly that is refreshing?! lol. I guess the same should be said when Obama's credentials are called into question constantly? icon_eek.gif

    Aww, snap! icon_smile.gif Touché, Barricade...

    I haven't seen the Palin interview w/ Hannity yet, but I'll be wondering how she did, and was treated, as compared w/ O'Really with Obama. I have a feeling Obama explicitly knows his shit backward and forward relative to Palin, yet she will be treated w/ kid gloves.

    And this cult of personality stuff is just way overwrought with importance, e.g. "i find her very likable, is refreshing"... much like a gaseous beverage. That's where the republican machine gets the dumb undecided voters - call one dumb white woman likable, and one brilliant black man "elitist," and the policies don't matter anymore - and the High School Mean Girl gets the prize. Oh, democracy as led by personality politics... *sigh*

    Sorry, I find her "refreshing"...not so typical of so many of the slick politicians that are rammed down our throat. She seems "real" and "down to earth"...I for one like that for a change. Besides, she is clearly no dummy.

    I can agree that she has personality qualities that get her props for being a "spitfire," I guess - but our current president was also sold as "real" and "down to earth," even with the amplified texas accent, so those qualities don't automatically make for a shoe-in for my vote. I see Obama as very authentic as well, although also exceptionally informed and insightful, and able to get a handle on nuanced policies, or at least willing to be critically thinking about them. Again, not just based on how his personality makes me feel. She isn't dumb, no - I was being facetious to some extent - but I don't think she really has a great organic capacity to creatively and/or analytically bust out with policies or deep comprehension of them; her 3 economic reforms in the ABC interview were just the same old GOP standard party lines, for example.

    You also tied the "refreshing" part to her not "being overloaded w/ experience." I think that is a bit of a selective spin for yourself that needs to be called out. icon_smile.gif

    Yes, it's important we vote for the most likable and refreshing candidate that isn't overloaded with all that experience.

    Experience is so overrated.

    Except when the other side's candidate doesn't have as much as we think he should. Then it's important.

    But it's really unimportant. Especially if you're likable.

    Unless it's experience as a prisoner of war -- then it can be important again.

    But not if you're likable and refreshing -- then it's not important.

    Got that? Good.

    Next week's lesson will be on the economy: Fundamentally strong! But also not. But American workers are strong and, my friends, if you say the economy is not fundamentally strong then you're insulting all those patriotic hard-working workers with strong patriotic small-town non-elite values. So, definitely fundamentally strong, my friends. But also not...

    Further lessons: Change, Reform, Lipstick, Pigs, and other challenging topics.

    Yes, she's quite unlike any Republican presidential candidate we've seen. Her not being "overloaded with experience" or Washington "taint" makes her contrast with, by way of random example, the Republican nominee of 2000.

    How refreshing.

    (edit: I see homonculus' second post beat me to the Bush parallel.)

    Pity the whole thing about 'visiting' Ireland and Iraq wasn't 'real' too. icon_smile.gif
    If she can reform her trip itinerary like that, just imagine how she'll reform the Washington establishment! icon_rolleyes.gif

    Agreed. On the other hand, I love McCain because he's soooooo experienced.

    Sarah is just people, plain people:
