    Wow I hope not. If so make sure he pays child-support!

    If I was him I'd ask for a paternity test, just to be sure.

    I was thinking the same thing, Troy. I always thought the Palin's would be the perfect family for an episode of "Springer."

    Great body, by the way...wow. How do I look like that when I'm 45? Oops, I'm 50! Congratulations and thanks for sharing.

    I stood about 20 feet in front of the stage last night where McCain gave his concession speech and let me tell you that Sara Palin in so much prettier in real life, and her husband, Todd --- HOT!

    This may not be the last you see of Sarah Palin. Some pundits predict she may be in line for the Senate now that disgraced Alaska Senator Ted Stevens is headed off to prison.

    Yeah, he appears to have won reelection. But if the Senate won't seat him, as a convicted felon, then a replacement must be selected. I'm not sure how that works in Alaska, especially since the issue arises of whether Stevens has vacated the seat, or if he was never sworn into his next term, how the vacancy is treated. The Democratic loser to Stevens has no claim to the seat.

    In most states, a Senator who resigns or dies is replaced by the Governor. But I've heard that Alaska may require a special election in this case. Does anyone know?

    I know what's coming, though: Senator Sarah Palin! That idiot isn't out of the national spotlight yet, and will continue to build her political resume for more runs at the Presidency.

    It would be a sad thing to have that child's father abandon him/her and a very young mother be resentful at both him and the baby all in the name of a lost election. So part of me does, in fact, hope they stay together and try to make it work.

    um ... it's 17-year old Bristol Palin that's knocked up. Her sister Piper is maybe 10?

    It was on the lines of a classic political marriage of convenience, to garner votes. Palin lost, so the deal's off. Good for him, provided he pays support, and the baby's his. He needs to insist on a paternity test.

    My understanding about Alaska is that a special election would be required if Stevens is forced out of the Senate or if he resigns.

    It's not that hard to count the votes of only 210,000 voters (at least that's what voted in the Presidential election last night) in the entire state of AK.

    Yeah, I see Stevens either not being seated, or resigning when the Senate denies him committee assignments, and possibly the ability to vote (odd if a felon can't vote in public elections, but might be able to vote in the US Senate, a far more influential vote).

    I still foresee a Senator Sarah Palin, gawd help us.

    Can only hope that the truth will FINALLY come out:

    NEWSWEEK has learned that Palin's shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported. While publicly supporting Palin, McCain's top advisers privately fumed at what they regarded as her outrageous profligacy. One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family--clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill. Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent "tens of thousands" more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband. Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast," and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books.

    Doesn't suprprise me. When I first learned she "favored " Escada, I wondered how she could afford that, on a govenors salary, husband a fisherman, and five kids. That in itself was a red flag. (yes i know how much a suit at Escada runs)
    What did we expect from her anyway? Class?
    I will give her credit. Whoever was the fashin consultant, did a good job.
    But at who's expense?

    If that's true, she flat-out lied about it several times in speeches she gave at rallies.

    If she runs for anything, I'd have the ad guys run endless loops of her denying it next to photocopies of the expense statements.

    The hatred of government itself is one of the litmus tests of the Republican party. It fosters the idea that anything --- lying, cheating, smearing -- is acceptable, because the goal is to discredit politics and government altogether.

    But I thought McCain's concession speech was thoroughly classy.

    Isn't it a good thing that there's $150,000+ spent on clothes rather than where it might actually make a difference....

    Much more is coming out about Palin. She didn't even know that Africa is a continent, not a country. She couldn't name the three nations of North America. She pitched tantrums with her staff.

    I mean, when FOX NEWS, including Bill O'Reilly, is revealing this stuff, you know the Apocalypse is near:

    I wonder if the wedding dress for Bristol is included in that $150,000 spent..

    I think that the title of this forum mentions the wrong daughter just so someone will take his bet and Troy gets the ten bucks.

    No, I went with a girlfriend who was given tickets by a local congressman. Didn't cost me a dime. As for drooling -- not so much -- and the crowd was very gay-friendly, and I saw many friends there. This notion that Republicans run around hating gays is just mystifying to me. It simply isn't true.

    I know...it's not hate...they just dislike how gay dudes get so much free sex....even at a political rally!! LOL

    Maybe this should be the new platform that republicans should take.....LOVE all our gay bro's

    Give me a freaking break with all the crap on her buying clothing. How much do you think is spent at every campaign stop by both parties just to dress the damn stage? Why shouldn't the person on the stage get dressed to?
    Anyone supporting Obama has NO place to talk about the amount of money spent. How much did his rally last night in Chicago cost? (I'm not saying he shouldn't have spent it, just asking why its ok to spend all that money staging, stands, police, etc, etc, etc- and yet Palin can't spend money on clothes?
