All I Need to Know

This tells me all I need to know about her:

“The state of Alaska will sue the U.S. government to stop the listing of the polar bear as a threatened species, arguing the designation will slow development in the state, Gov. Sarah Palin said on Wednesday.”
(Reuters, May 22, 2008)

To write any more about how I feel about this would cause me to go into a cursing frenzy and I don’t want to do that here.

So McCain is telling us that on day one, she is as qualified to sit behind the desk in the oval office as he is. What does that tell us about what McCain thinks of his own qualifications?

Yesterday, Rudy Giuliani said that Palin is more qualified to be president than Sen. Obama. Yeah, I was shaking my head too. That might have been the most bizarre thing I have heard yet about the person McCain has chosen to run on the ticket with him.

I can't believe people are spreading gossip about her being the grandmother of her 5th child when her stance on an environmental issue as serious as this is really, truly, morally reprehensible.

Of course she's more qualified than Obama since Alaska is so close to Russia and Russia has ties with Iran who helped destabilize Iraq by aiding Al-Qaeda who were behind 9/11. Duh.

The nicest thing for me about the Palin pick is that I don’t even have to think twice about her to know I oppose her. If you think evolution is “just a theory,” you are not getting my vote. Think abortion should be illegal no matter what, even in cases of rape and incest- not getting my vote. Think intelligent design should be taught in science classrooms- not getting my vote. I don't even have to look at experience or anything. Simple case of black and white.

Wait a minute. You're a woman, don't you plan to vote the prick/vagina ticket because it would be the vagina-american correct thing to do? I'm shocked.

Polar bears, creationism, no Global Climate change, abuse of power-- Palin is the perfect Republican. And, all the Republicans know how to get right into lockstep behind their candidates and never utter a single word about her shocking unpreparedness for the national and world stage. The times get scarier and scarier.

i am so angry my teeth hurt over this pick it is so insulting to so many on so many different levels.

and i agree i don't care who she gave birth to or didn't. that's not relevent and gets the focus off of her total, TOTAL lack of qualifications.

for pity's sake, she could end up as our president!

I think the personal stuff does matter. I shows a real lack of judgment on the part of both McCain and Palin. If she's the baby's grandmother - she's lying. If she is the baby's mother - she showed bad judgment in getting on a plane with her amniotic fluid leaking.

Character is going to matter in this election. This is about the undecided voter or the voter who might stay home.

Those who care about the environment aren't likely going to vote for McCain anyway.

But those who care about judgment, about lying, about a mother who would risk her unborn child? Well, those people will never vote for Obama, but they might not vote for Palin after they learn those things about her.

It's still a numbers game.

Zilla, I say hit on all fronts. This is what the Republicans do and they have won elections with it.

The political and the personal both matter. The focus is that John McCain does not have the judgment or temperment to be president, and this poorly vetted pick is just another example of why.

Yup. Cracks me up. Yesterday McCain was telling a reporter that Palin was more qualified to lead the country because she is Governor of the biggest state in the US (didn't mention of 18 months), was mayor of a town (he didn't mention of 9,000), and was a PTA president. Yup. That makes her qualified to lead this nation. NOT!!!

McCain's judgment:
choosing a woman BECAUSE she has ovaries-- and believes women are too stupid to look past that fact to see her stands on the issues.
Palin's judgment:
if she was so gung-ho to run for veep, she would have other chances -- and would even have more experience by
instead, she chose to offer her daughter up for sacrifice.

that's NOT to mention the fact that she kept birth control away from her daughter [and would do the same to us], sued Bush over polar bears, was in favor of the bridge to nowhere, wants to teach creationism as science, doesn't believe in climate change and is in the pocket of Big Oil.
and we all know how well off we are after having had a prez for 8 years who agrees with much of what she says.

The McCain/Palin ticket is like a bad sitcom, Everybody Loves POWs or Mad About....Something, about a gruff but hotheaded presidential candidate and his impossibly hot yet shrewish running mate.

Just points out that McCain puts himself first and the country second or third. Not a good example of the judgment required to be President.

Hey Rudy. Is Palin is more qualified to be president than you?

Perhaps this repug ticket is proof positive that absolute power corrupts absolutely--they're rotten to the core.
