McCain/Palin 08!!!!

I think the GOP just put their foot in their mouth. Its obvious that he is going after Hillary's voters. What if something happens to 72yr old John McCain. Is this woman ready to be commander in chief? She is 44yr and have 5 children. Sadly, one of them is an infant with down syndrome. Lets not forget that she has only been in office as Governor for 2006. This is not good IMHO. Joe Biden will chew her up and spit her out.

What do you think??

I think McCain would have been much better off with 46yr old Pawlenty instead of Palin...sheesh.

I thought it was a given that he'd choose a female or minority. I had no idea about that choice though. surprising, to say the least.

I almost thought there was going to pic a monty python pic of Michael Palin in drag posted...

A candid pic:

Bforbes, did you not get the response you expected from posting yor remarks in the Obama/Bidin thread? Looks like the very same post to me. Are you practicing to be a troll when you grow up?

Gov. Palin is a smart choice.

Gov. Palin has even more relevant executive experience than the demonrat's top of the ticket Nobambi.

Let's see how the pitbull, plagiarizer, Plugs Biden goes after a mother of five with a Down Syndrome child in the debates.

Gov. Palin is smart, experienced, accomplished, conservative, an athlete, and even a beauty queen.

It seems the GOP did it right, the older more experience person at the top of the ticket while the demonrats botched it again as usual the with the more experienced person at the bottom and a Nobambi at the top.

Those poor demonrats, what a backassward party!

I dont know enough about her to form an opinion either way. The little bit I have heard IS intriguing but I will wait until I hear what she has to say and if her values reflect my own. Hopefully those on the far right won't ruin this thread with useless rhetoric...

Very cute. It is the very same post. I decided in all fairness why not give McCain/Palin their own thread. My opinions havent changed since the last thread. This is the internet. Why dont u try growing up?

BigSlick, she is pretty hot. :smile:

I knew she was anti-abortion. I didnt know about the gay rights...wow. I got some reasearching to do. I dont think she'll take many hilldog votes. She might turn on some Republicans that didnt care for McCain too much. I wonder how Hillary feels about this. Having a woman to possibly reach VP and it not be her.

1. A conservative woman to shore up conservative women and men who were not happy. My first thought was he should select a woman from a big state. I thought he (Mc Daddy) should have selected a woman with liberal leanings to attract the Hillary man-hating femenists in a big state. By not doing this he made a move that is absolutely brilliant to the point I almost cannot even explain. While solidifying the Republican base (trust me the party needed this) with this selection they are likely to pick up women who were leaning towards Sen McCain based on Sen Obama's perceived disrespect towards the Clintons. There are some Hillary women who will vote where the girls are, right now it is with the Republicans.
2. Announcement in Ohio and their first campaigning together in Ohio is another stroke of intelligent forethought and political savvy.
3. Her husband is a union guy and she was a union gal, that will resonate a little but that is all that is needed in recent elections.
4. If her inexperience to be a VP is pounded by the Dems the counter by the Repubs is to only look over at the Dem's Presidential nominee. Oh BTW, President Clinton talked of how unnecessary it was for him as a Governor to need vast experience to be a President. The argument falls flat for those who are not absent minded..
5. Sympathy votes from all sides, especially women with disabled children.
6. The religious folks just got their prayers answered and a reason to come out and vote for Sen McCain. This was a real problem for Sen McCain and he resolved it without having to bend over to Romney and the hyper-religious extreme. The pro-life problem nearly solved.
7. She is hot! Sex sells and good looks makes sex sell at a premium.
8. She is the first Republican in a long time to make me excited, no not in the groin excited rather as a disenchanted party member needing excitement. If other drifting Republicans see this VP selection the way I do this race may run away from the Dems.
9. She has NRA appeal, that affects both parties, Dems own guns too.
10. Her working class experience is the best and most real I have seen in a while. 95% of America fits this shoe, fence sitters have a reason to jump off.
11. Alaska's resources and her ACVTIVE efforts to find other natural resources to wean us from foreign dependency gives her credibilty where it counts for most of us, in our wallets.
12. Hunters are true environmentalists, she hunts.
13. her son going to Iraq on Sep 11. Recall that date? I suspect it will garner politcal impetus. Understand this is not an avalanche but rather snowing in the Dems one snowflake at a time.

Guys I figured a woman would help Sen McCain but this brings a lot to the table for the Republicans. We must remember that Margret Thatcher did not have a lot of experience and history has already reserved a grand monument to her. Her strength was her decision making.
The debates will be super interesting for me.
LOL, look how opposite each side is in the competitive parties. It is almost commical.
