Default *Now* I understand McCain and Palin

* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, different."
* If you grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, you're a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack, you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
* If you name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

* If you graduate from Harvard law School, you are unstable.
* If you attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system, while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant , you're very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.
* If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

ok, let's flip that.

*It's not patriotic to fight for your country
*It's ok to be proud of your country for the first time because your husband is the democratic nominee

Now, I understand Obama

Eh, don't worry about Palin, the vice president doesn't do shit, they're just a figurehead.

Not saying I'd vote for the republicans though

On a side note: Isn't it amazing how much Palin looks like Tina Fey?? When I first saw her on tv I actually thought it was Tina Fey....lol

You are aware that McCain is in his 70s? What happens if he snuffs it in office? Then it's hello President Palin. And that's scary.

Yes I do realize that McCain is in his 70's and could kick off while in office for 4 years, but I'm talking about while the president is still in office, the VP doesn't do anything. Mostly just steals our money. When is the last time you saw Dick Cheney?

The only thing scary is that the presidential nominee on the democratic ticket and the vice presidential nominee on the republican ticket have comparable levels of experience and all I ever hear about is how much trouble we would be in if the republican vice president ever got to be president.

It’s a level of hypocrisy that is only achievable in U.S. politics. : )

mcain has realistic ideas like winning the war obama wants to get rid of worthless kobs in the government. which is alot and would make many people lose their jobs just what america needs less jobs. on thing about palin is she is honest she admits to smoking pot unlike other presidents...bush...clinton and she is more attractive than biden.

Hello Mr. Obama is even more scarier. The demos are complaining about our second person not having experience, well your first candidate has no experience. That tends to be a bit more important.. Palin at least has a record of MANY great changes in Alaska. Nobody here could probably tell me something Obama has changed.

* Lets trust a man that doesn't salute our flag.
* A man that didn't fight for our country.
* Has no track record of change.
* Thinks our country has 53 states.
* Wants to get rid of our nuclear weapons.

Yea, sounds like a great guy.

I agree, he doesn't have any leadership experience, being on a committee doesn't mean he makes any decisions, and sponsoring a bill doesn't mean he gets to make any decesions. Palin on the other hand has actual EXECUTIVE experience and therefore (in my book anyway) be a better leader.

First off, when a person gets a DUI 25 YEARS AGO I think it's different. Because when your young, you do stupid things and I don't think at the time he thought "This might hurt my wife's VP bid 20 years from now". If the DUI was in the last few months or years then yeah, when your an adult and do stupid shit like that then it's a problem.

Also, Palins husband is also a Yu'pik (Inuit) Native. Or at least part Native, so I can relate to why he as well as other Yu'pik would want a free Alaska, they have more of a claim to it, to make it free through treaty's which have not be honored. I'm between 1/3rd and 1/2 Creek/Cherokee/Choctaw and although I've never been a part of one, there are several very active movements going on now for complete Native sovereignty in the Lower 48 because of broken treaty's the the U.S. Governments and State Governments won't honor. But complete Native sovereignty will never happen though, and neither will Alaskan Sovereignty. But I can still sympathize with Palin's husband,
