Getting to know Sarah

Need to express a few more thoughts on Palin:

1. Experience: Unlike Obama, no NATIONAL experience, either domestic policy or national security.
-The PTA counts? WTF?
-Alaska is right next to Russia, so neaaahhhh. Seriously righties?

2. Women are a bunch of non-thinking sheep, especially Hillary PUMA's, and will flock to Palin.
-Palin loves her some b*tch jokes about a cancer surviving member of her own frikkin' party.
-She is a religious nut.
-Palin; she did not like Hillary's "Whining"

3. She is a reformer.
-Nope she advocated for the bridge to nowhere, before being a veep candidate. Mrs. Prodigal Son's boy calls that lying.

4. Her hubby is works for BP, he's not a folksy fisherman.

Ok . . . let's not get overconfident. The cutsey gal with spunk boolsheet can go a long way. How do we pivot and put the focus back on McSames shitty judgement?

OH YEAH, per Begala.

For a man who is 72 years old and has had four bouts with cancer to have chosen someone so completely unqualified to become president is shockingly irresponsible. Suddenly, McCain’s age and health become central issues in the campaign, as does his judgment.

In choosing this featherweight, McCain passed over Tom Ridge, a decorated combat hero, a Cabinet secretary and the former two-term governor of the large, complex state of Pennsylvania.

He passed over Mitt Romney, who ran a big state, Massachusetts; a big company, Bain Capital; and a big event, the Olympics.

He passed over Kay Bailey Hutchison, the Texas senator who is knowledgeable about the military, good on television, and — obviously — a woman.

He passed over Joe Lieberman, his best friend in the Senate and fellow Iraq Kool-Aid drinker.

He passed over former congressman, trade negotiator and budget director Rob Portman.

And he also passed over Mike Huckabee, the governor of Arkansas.

For months, the McCainiacs have said they will run on his judgment and experience. In his first presidential decision, John McCain has shown he is willing to endanger his country, potentially leaving it in the hands of someone who simply has no business being a heartbeat away from the most powerful, complicated, difficult job in human history.
