    McCain and Palin too risky.

    "Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee, brings far more promise to the office. In a time of grave economic crisis, he displays thoughtful analysis, enlists wise counsel and operates with a cool, steady hand. The same cannot be said of Sen. McCain. "

    Like picking Sen. McCain for president, putting her one 72-year-old heartbeat from the leadership of the free world is just too risky at this time.

    Those words Should be on the lips of every American right now

    Yeah, what a humiliation for McCain/Palin. But them almost ALL major newspapers are endorsing Obama/Biden.

    Only if it includes at least 60 Dems in the Senate. Otherwise, the Repubs will block everything with the filibuster.

    In other news, the U.S. has flexed it's muscle at Syria, pretty forcefully.

    You may wonder, as I do, why now?

    Duh.

    Senate Democrats eye 'magic 60'

    Story Highlights

    Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, is in a close race in Kentucky

    Elizabeth Dole is fighting to hold on to her seat in North Carolina

    Dems hope to get 60 seats, the number needed to secure filibuster-proof majority

    Democrats and Republicans both running ads pointing to the "magic number"

    How many of you have voted in states that have early voting? I did on Thursday. How many of you plan to vote on election day? Obama cannot win if no one shows up to vote.

    This is VERY disturbing news . . . every news outlet whether television or print should be demanding answers to: "why now?"

    The art of distraction rears its ugly head, yet again -- I believe this is an attempt to change the current electoral landscape -- only, this time, lets hope people see through the smoke and mirrors and call "them" on their inane and reckless behavior and boot them all right out of office in total !!!

    This will backfire. It will make people think not of security, but of the crazy war that is costing us so much money. Americans are not interested in putting out fires in other countries, when our own house is burning down.

    I wonder if McCain is regretting his decision of picking Palin as his VP? It started out as a good move to swing women voters but it may come back to bite him in the ass. We'll see. icon_smile.gif

    It was always a bad move. McCain tried to pull a Madonna/Britney be doing something controversial to get media attention for a rather lackluster product. Difference is Madonna and Britney sell their product immediately after the controversy and then people find out it that it pales in comparison to previous efforts. McCain's audience listens to the product before they buy and boy, does it ever pale in comparison!

    And now Elizabeth Hasselbeck from the View is stumping with Palin and calling the Palin wardrobe controversy as sexist.



    Okay first, the stump has to rely on a D-List celebrity...WTF?!

    Second, what would Hasselbeck call the Republican criticisms of John Edwards $400 haircuts?

    Third, why does she need to read the script on that simple attack?



    The "Straight Talk" express has just pulled in to the Desperation Station. ALL ABOARD!!!! icon_rolleyes.gif

    I am just suprised that anyone puts any faith in a newspaper from Alaska. After all, it is a small newspaper from a backwards state, like Palin is a small Governor from the same backwards state.

    Sorry, but how gay is it that people argue about what Hasselback on"The "View" says or thinks about anything? Like she is a voice of Rebublican thought? Or Behar is the voice of Democrats?

    It is a show for stay at home moms. People with no jobs. "The View" is now influential? To who? Illiterates?

    I'm just hoping that the Bradley effect does not occur. When the former Mayor Thom Bradley ran for Gov. of California, he was leading in large numbers in the polls and he was expected to win in large numbers. You know a funny thing happen at the polls.

    Well he ended up loosing to George Deukmejian. My point is I will rejoice on Nov 5, 2008 if the how the Electoral map and how it's reading translate in a win until then I will be nervously awaiting the out come.

    Just like the other people who remembers what is now being called "The Bradley Effect".

    The only irony is the very same people who belittled Palin's credentials as a Governor because "Alaska only has 600,000 people" are acting like an endorsement by an Alaskan newspaper is somehow a huge deal in the grand scheme of things.
