    First we get Caribou Barbie being trotted out and placed in front of a crew of Bush's global cronies Kissinger, Hamid Karzai and Columbia's Uribe

    and the press is told .... YOU Got Thirty Seconds No Questions No Reporters No Editorial Staff Just a Photographer
    WTF????
    Is this North Korea?
    This is the crap that gets pulled in Beijing not the United States of America
    If they're THAT scared of what Caribou Barbie is gonna say then what they hell are they thinkin' she's gonna do when she's friggin' President after Gramps Croaks ?

    Well, it's been what, 40 days since McCain has had a press conference? And yes, Sarah is sequestered too. Because McCain doesn't want to answer tough questions and doesn't want Palin to, either. Just like Bush. Keep the media at arm's length. Do we really want another president who does not want to answer important questions?

    I think the McCain camp is gaffe-weary, and hoping that no news is good news. Conversely, the advertising community believes that all news is good news. I suspect the American electorate will be choosing not on experience or issues, but oddly, on accessibility.

    I wonder how that elitism meme is going?

    Maybe we should be like Biden......

    "Roosevelt stood up and said to the masses, during the Depression, he stood up to the masses on television, and told them the TRUTH, he told then how bad it was but he also told them what his plan was." In 1929

    Except the Democratic nominee for Vice President forgot that TV was not invented for another ten years and that Roosevelt did not come into office for another ten years.

    Oh well, Palin. Biden, they all make mistakes.

    But the thing is....

    Is wasn't a Mistake
    This was a preemption on her campaigns part so she WOULDN'T be seen making one

    They KNOW she's weak
    and yet they're inflicting her on us anyway

    Do I detect a panic? Sarah Palin is not running for president, John McCain is and John didn't get $102,000.00 bucks from Fannie Mae like Barrack Obama did. Then again, compared to Chris Dodd who raked in $186,000.00 from Fannie, it doesn't appear to be so much.

    Q. If Ms Palin is so weak. Why has she been able to, put the fear of god in everyone?

    If Biden did say "television" then he slipped. Roosevelt was speaking on the radio, and to the print media and newsreels in those days. I would think the Roosevelt message is the important thing here, and it's relevance to today's situation. BTW, Roosevelt took office in 1933, and the Great Depression really didn't start until mid-1930, when the effects of the October, 1929 stock market crash began to be felt by ordinary people.

    Second BTW, television WAS invented and demonstrated in the 1920s, but it is true that the first limited broadcasts didn't occur until 1939 in the US, covering such stories as the opening of the 1939 World's Fair in New York. I've toured FDR's home in Hyde Park, NY and seen an early TV he owned from that era.

    She may not be running for president but she will be representing the US as well. And McCain isn't a healthy 40, 50, 60 something..he's a 72 yr old man who can pass away any minute and then SHE would be president.

    Why are you defending this hate monger anyway? You want her to take you to her church so they pray your gayness away or perform an exorcism?
