Fox News: Sarah Palin - Worse Than You Thought.

    I don't think it is fear, but might make him think twice, which might just be enough to keep him from going too far.
    The myriad subgroups will hate and wish him ill even if he's the best thing since sliced bread. I think as with any president who wishes to be successful, he will try to keep abreast of the pulse of the mainstream and act accordingly. I honestly don't think that assassination will be a second thought however, security will.

  2. Hence my comments around here.

    Sarah the ditz.

    Bush and Palin ruined any chance McCain had in the 2008 election.

    Period.

    I dont need the VP of this country talking to me like I am 5 and winking at me.

    She's an idiot.

    FWIW. I have family in Alaska, they did not speak well of her. Many of them voted for her, but knew she was not worthy of VP.

    Frankly, the people who knew this about her and were still directly responsible for "vetting" her, putting her on the ticket, attempting to foist this idiot on the American people, and protecting her while there was still a chance (however theoretical) that she could become Vice President and possibly President of the United States ought to be arrested and tried for treason.

    We used to think that having debates was an adequate way of gauging performance for our candidates, even though the realities of television have turned them into staged dog and pony shows these days. But even just as a measure of whether a candidate could mouth correct-ish, truthy-sounding answers, they still retained some value -- even as Palin failed even that ridiculously dumbed-down test. We were willing to live with the faked-for-television debate framework because it was always premised on the assumption that the candidates shared with most Americans a common base of cultural and political knowledge that any competent person could automatically be credited with, simply by virtue of having successfully grown to adulthood as an American, and presumably having gone through some sort of educational process, formal or otherwise.

    Now it turns out that we would have been better off evaluating at least our Vice Presidential candidates by putting them on Jeopardy! Or in this case, even The Tonight Show's "Jaywalking" segment would have been sufficient.

    Here we were trying to evaluate Palin's ability to explain the Republican ticket's economic plans, when she may never even have known how many pennies were in a dollar, or who the faces on the bills were. We jumped right past basic grammar school evaluations, because the gravity of the office McCain was contending for is one that has always caused Americans to automatically assume that the candidates would have enough respect to actually prepare to take on that mantle before challenging for the seat, and because we've always assumed that as much as we disagreed with the other party, it could at least be trusted to act in its own best interest by nominating a ticket that wouldn't be disqualified on its face, or be laughed out of the country for lack of even the most basic knowledge about who we are and what we're about as a country. Including such trivia as, say, the names of the countries we border.

    This is why the GOP continues to fail, and has been marginalized into a regional party.

    John McCain should never live this down.


    All of this is in my view, is John McCain and his staffers trying to cover their own rear ends. He ran a piss pore campaign, and could not get his own thoughts across when it counted. He used the term "friends" just about as much as bush uses the term "hard work" when their brains lock up and loose their train of thought. John was too afraid to "attack" Obama with the truth of his past and who he really is, in fear of being called a racist for criticizing him. Joe the plumber an everyday working American got McCain's points across better than he ever could have and the list goes on and on.

    Sarah Palin was not the reason for his loss or downfall, and I do not believe these stories that are coming out about her either. I will admit I have a biased view, I am a republican, and I live in Alaska. These things have not been seen or heard of from her at all, since she has been here in office. I do not think it is a coincidence that they are now all of the sudden being flooded to the media to try and downplay McCain's blundering campaign. Again though this is only one persons opinion.

    Just to keep things "fair and balanced" if you are going to call Sarah a ditz, Biden has to be right there with her. Look at his continuous foot in mouth statements. He on many occasions showed us why he only received 9% of the vote in the democrat primaries. I do not feel very comfortable right now knowing that Obama is the next president of the US, and I do not agree with everything that Bush has done either, but I damn sure know that I would rather have Bush or even Obama any day of the week over Biden.

    I think his Secret Service agents have done a brilliant job protecting him. We never hear about all the extra work those guys put in around election time. I'm sure they had even more protection than normal on Obama.

    Lol, yeah okay. Check his track record, not the 10pm fox news.

    Like you said, one person's opinon.

    Sorry to hear yours. lol

    Here, learn a bit about Joe, then get back with me.

    His campaign was dead before her...she gave him a chance....Sept 15th and a 500 point drop in the DOW erased that chance.
    I think you misunderstand me. I am not saying hse is soley responsible, not by any means. His handling of the economic crisis in September did him in, however her performances in many interviews were less than stellar, and she did not play the attack dog that well, as the public just was not interested in the "paling around with terrorists" angle.

    I think McCain wins, if he exposed Obama's tax plan. He needed to explain that EVERYBODY making over 50k will get a substantial tax increase once the Bush tax cuts expired in 2010. That would of sunk in at the debates.

    Apparently he was unaware that FDR wasn't president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time.

    Actually, in him getting 46.2% of the vote in this environment meant that people were interested. He didn't get above 40% BEFORE the credit crisis hit. His handling had nothing to do with it...the perception it was Republicans that caused the housing bubble, and the mythical deregulation did him in. Nothing he said or did would have changed that. You don't change public perception built up over the last 4 years in 4 weeks. Palin gave him a shot he never would have had....and in that case, it wasn't anywhere near a strike out...it was a success on a losing team.

    Yeah, FDR talking on TV in 1929. Real genius at work.

    Seems the blinders are still on.

  17. Last I checked, the wonderous Palin is not the VP. The "idiot" Biden is.

    Oh darn.

    The end of the world is coming, quick, get your duct tape and bottled water.

    lol

  18. I got the tape and water back when gas went over 3.00 a gallon. You're a bit late on the 'end of the world' supplies.

  19. All of these reports where from "anonymous" McCain aides.
    http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...,2688299.story

    I just don't understand why they are still "bashing" Palin.
    Planning ahead for a possible 2012 Palin ticket?
    I seriously doubt she would win the Republican nomination.

    Let's all just sit back, take a break, and watch the Bill Clinton---ummm, I mean the Obama Administration make a "change".

    Actually, she's the most popular candidate for 2012 among republican voters. And its not even close.

    Yes, and he'll do what he's done for the last 30 years. Nothing.

    ...but its nice to see the selective filtering is still in place.

  23. I didn't go the route of weaponry as much as the route of essential supplies...

    Knives
    Sewing kits
    Non perishable goods
    All weather clothing
    Water purifying supplies
    First aid kits
    Candles
    Batteries
    Solar powered radio
    etc
    During the same time you got your stuff

    Speaking of (an another shameless plus), looks like we finally scored a good supplier for the Bulk Bison Jerky. No frills (high sodium, etc.) but a good price.

    I know I'm stocking up buttloads myself.
