Whether you regard her as incompetent, psycho, white trash, etc., do you find Sarah Palin to be a tasty MILF?

September 4th, 2008, 12:10 AM
I don't see where all the hub bub about her looks come from...I wouldn't touch her with a ten foot pole :rolleyes:
I guess if it was between her and McInsane she'd win....
I also can't stand her voice- do all people from Alaska talk like that :confused:

September 4th, 2008, 12:19 AM
^^^ lol. I was thinking the samething about her voice. It sounds like a Southerner trying to talk as if they're from Boston.

September 4th, 2008, 04:38 AM
She's genuinely good looking and sexy.... photographs very well, attractive facial expressions. She looks like an actress playing a role. We will be seeing lots and lots of her...

But the voice... to my ears it's finger nails screeching across a blackboard... but the public is going to love it, sounds like regular folk.

September 4th, 2008, 06:09 AM
She is very sexy and attractive, somewhat classy (She's a Republican), but her voice and speech are only as exciting as the old and boring crowd at the RNC.

September 4th, 2008, 06:21 AM

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

This one plainly doesn't fear the Lord.


September 4th, 2008, 06:23 AM
Re: classy: I sure don't think of Palin as classy... neither her nor Cindy McCain. Laura Bush is (Texan) classy... but very classy none the less.

I don't want to get the thread off track but .... compare these two... no contest:



Cindy McCain: All of that money and opportunity and she still sounds like she's 14?


September 4th, 2008, 09:12 AM

very good looking woman for sure, looks young and hot but not my VP for sure

Re: Palins's voice

Seems folks here are in agreement that Palin has a thin and twangy tone. Last night after the speech when Harry Reid said she sounded "shrill" (i.e.: thin and twangy) GOPers jumped on him as "sexist" (claiming "shrill" is one of thse code words rumbling through US politics these days, although the definition (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/shrill) seems to match what we're discussing: "piercing in tone or sound; sharp or keen to the senses; harshly vivid").

Andrew Sullivan (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/live-blogging-p.html), while live-blogging the speech, noted that when emphasizing a point she scrunches up her nose in a weird way.

IMO it's kind of a snarky look. It's a look that won't work well when playing the diplomat. But by all indications Palin has no intention of using diplomacy. Sounds like hard ball tactics and guns drawn is the primary way she operates.

September 4th, 2008, 11:19 AM
Andrew Sullivan should stick to his HIV+ barebacking websites.

September 4th, 2008, 11:24 AM
That is simply such a low slur to a distinguished writer... and completely inappropriate sleazy comment. But I am not surprised. Try at least coming up with an intellegent comment about what he has written in the article Lofter has posted.

September 4th, 2008, 11:32 AM
Sullivan's blog (The Daily Dish (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/) via The Atlantic) offers the most interesting compilation (and the best organized web-page with the most easily accessed links) for current political events. Many other politically-oriented sites are jumbled, try to do too much and get groggy & jammed when a link is clicked (at least on my pc). Not so at AS' site.

I don't agree with all of his politics, but in the current scheme of things he's a player and can't be dismissed.

September 4th, 2008, 11:41 AM
His politics can be argued with. But do personal scandals about his private life from years ago still need to haunt him? It's a rather mindless way to debate the content of an article about Sarah Palin's speech.

Last time I checked, I'm entitled to my own opinions. When someone expresses a wish to spread a deadly disease, there is no statute of limitations in my book.

September 4th, 2008, 12:29 PM
This is really a sideline to the topic of this thread, but ...

If someone chooses to have sex with someone else and possibly share a virus with another who already carries that virus (i.e.: two adults who are both HIV+ engaging in sex without a condom) then what is the problem?

If both are carriers then there is no "spread" of the disease.

September 4th, 2008, 12:40 PM
When someone expresses a wish to spread a deadly disease...

This is simply untrue. Andrew Sullivan has never expressed a wish to spread a deadly disease. Please come up with a quote of him saying so. Thanks. Furthermore... this whole story is from like 8 years ago.

September 4th, 2008, 01:00 PM
What has A. Sullivan and HIV got to do with whether or not this woman is hot?

I do find her quite attractive, as always Im with you LL!

September 4th, 2008, 02:21 PM
BW is when she was in a beauty event in AK

September 4th, 2008, 09:30 PM
....I do find her quite attractive, as always Im with you LL!

Great minds think alike. Palin has nice curves -- like a Gehry tower!

September 4th, 2008, 09:40 PM

Who was this photographer?( and Photoshopper...) Managed to make her look bad. Looks like a crude photo-montage.


And did you all see Cindy McCain last night? She really looked worn-out. What's with the sgraggly hair (very 2003) ...and she's got to tone down and shade the blonde hair color. She looked like a (rhymes with bitch).

September 5th, 2008, 09:12 AM
Ann Coulter?

September 5th, 2008, 09:27 AM
BTW: The real scandal is not if the baby is actually hers... but if the body on that Vogue cover is actually hers.

I say it's not. Try turning your head like that without scrunching your neck. Also note how the direction of the lighting on the face is different from the body.

September 5th, 2008, 09:54 AM
As Arianna Huffington has pointed out: The Palin Soap Opera (babies, snowmobiles, hair) offer the perfect diversion for those who don't want the issues to be in the forefront.

And if that is what folks continue to focus on then there's no chance that the Dems will win.

September 5th, 2008, 09:58 AM
Arianna Huffington is another MILF im into, even if she is not a mom!

September 5th, 2008, 10:03 AM
Well, considering her marriage ... :rolleyes:

Despite my recent post I couldn't resist this:

A Brit chimes in (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/mccain-attempts-to-steal-back-show-from-palin-919522.html) on the Palin clan ...

Clothes maketh the 'second family'

If a social commentator of the Lady Bracknell school were to describe the Palin family's rendition of formal wear, they might describe it as perfect... for one's first court appearance. In Alaska, check shirts and camouflage jackets are the order of the day, and family photographs tend to be set in the great outdoors, around the carcass of a moose. As a result, the would-be Second Family didn't so much wear their formal outfits on Wednesday, as get worn by them.

Sarah Palin carried off her two-piece with elegance: those three-quarter length sleeves looked rolled-up and ready for business. But Ms Palin has had 16 years in politics to refine her wardrobe, and is fortunate after five children to retain the slender profile and shapely calves that helped her to the title of Miss Wasilla, 1984.

Her husband, Todd, self-styled "first dude" and judge of this year's Miss Alaska, did well with a dark, two-buttoned suit. But would you buy a used car from him? Eldest son Track resembles a bodyguard, while daughters Bristol and Willow look like old-fashioned girls in pearls.

It's difficult not to feel sympathy for one young man in the line-up. Levi Johnston, Bristol's 18-year-old fiancé, carries his arms dead straight and has trouser creases so sharp they could draw blood. If he really has never worn a tie before, Levi had better get used to it: the coming months will bring the christening of his first-born, not to mention his wedding.

if they winthey get married, if they dont they disappear again and this kid is off the hook, if I had to place money on this. That kid is praying for Obama I bet right now

September 5th, 2008, 10:19 AM
Lol. He's probably sent in his $5 donation.


The worst dressed is Cindy McCain. No excuse for that look.

September 5th, 2008, 10:58 AM
she does look lost out their and being around DC for all these years she should have some style, even Hillary got better over time.

September 5th, 2008, 11:21 AM
People in Texas/ the SouthWest get caught up in a very specific look; trashy Versace/Escada. It's their version of what money should wear.

September 5th, 2008, 11:27 AM
It only works (somewhat) while they're very young.

If they don't evolve out of it in their 30s, they end up like Cindy.

September 5th, 2008, 11:33 AM
There are several fake Levi Johnston blogs making the rounds.

In one, he writes about meeting McCain at the airport - this fu***ng old dude who smells like my grandma, gets in my face. If he does that again. I'm gonna f**k him up.

September 5th, 2008, 12:02 PM
Let's hope he does it again.

The photo brings to mind that despite being married to an idiot and saddled with the RNC, Laura Bush seems to be a genuinely nice and classy woman.

September 5th, 2008, 12:42 PM
She's put up with a great deal in her life.

September 5th, 2008, 12:43 PM
Ive actually always liked Mrs Bush. Im thinking when he drank and did coke the marriage was better

September 5th, 2008, 01:18 PM
In that Vanity Fair photo, Laura Bush looks like she's taking out the garbage.

She is very sexy and attractive, somewhat classy (She's a Republican), but her voice and speech are only as exciting as the old and boring crowd at the RNC.

Now that we have gotten past her voice and her appearance (hopefully) perhaps we can judge her on her accomplishments whether your political leanings are left, middle, or right.

September 5th, 2008, 02:25 PM
debate that in the Election thread, this is for her looks and that only

September 5th, 2008, 04:54 PM
I'm not sure if I can put my finger on exactly why, but Cindy's voice irritates me more than Sarah's (who definitely is a MILF).

Now playing at the Lincoln Center theater and the Republican campaign trail:

We feel restless, we feel blue,
We feel lonely and in grief,
We feel ev'ry kind of feelin',
But the feelin' of relief
We feel hungry as the wolf felt
When he met Red Hiding-hood
What don't we feel?
We don't feel good!

Lots of things in life are beautiful, but brother,
There is one particular thing that is nothin' whatsoever
In any way, shape or form like any other.

There is nothin' like a dame,
Nothin' in the world,
There is nothin' you can name
That is anythin' like a dame!

September 5th, 2008, 08:51 PM
She's tied as the queen of all milfs with Demi Moore, Sharon Stone and Katie Couric...

In my dreams these four are what heaven looks like...


September 5th, 2008, 09:20 PM
Am I the only guy here who would love to nail Cindy?

Personally, I'd like to have Cindy and Sarah at once. For the youth aspect, Chelsea would be quite nice too.

September 5th, 2008, 10:37 PM
Boy I would love to bang Sarah on that stage :D


September 5th, 2008, 10:56 PM

September 6th, 2008, 04:19 AM
I don't know what's going on with me... but I'd love to bang her too.

September 6th, 2008, 07:45 AM
Make a video and send it to Joe Biden.

September 6th, 2008, 08:28 AM
I was perfectly happy being gay. Now suddenly I have this desire to bang Sarah Palin.

I think the Republicans have a winner.

September 6th, 2008, 10:15 AM
And all this time I thought they had a whiner?!:cool:

"She's not bad looking. She looks like one of those women in the Van Halen videos who takes off her glasses, shakes out her hair, and then all of a sudden, she's in high heels and a bikini. All of a sudden, I am FOR drilling in Alaska." --Jimmy Kimmel

lol so true...

Comment of the Week: Sarah Palin Gets Some Campaign Advice
9/5/08, 1:55 pm EST (http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2008/09/05/comment-of-the-week-sarah-palin-gets-some-campaign-advice/)

Photo: Getty

This week’s Republican National Convention ruffled all sorts of feathers this week, as Rage Against the Machine stirred the pot (http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2008/09/04/rage-against-the-machine-ask-fans-to-fight-fascist-republican-agenda-at-fierce-minneapolis-gig/) and the McCain campaign used Heart’s “Barracuda” as a theme song for VP candidate Sarah Palin, much to the chagrin of Nancy Wilson (http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2008/09/05/heart-lash-out-at-mccain-campaigns-use-of-barracuda/). What Palin should have done was consult the readers of Rock Daily, who are always quick to provide useful, practical advice. For example, reader CRS2265 offered up this idea: "They should use artists that support Republican views. One comes to mind being Ted Nugent (http://www.rollingstone.com/artists/tednugent). They could have used 'Wang Dang Sweet Poontang (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoR6pVtxKd8)' for her entrance!” We’ll be waiting for the comment from the Nuge’s camp, though it’s unsure even he supports shooting wolves from planes.

A Fiscal Conservative?

Andrew Sullivan (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/a-fiscal-conser.html#more)
06 Sep 2008

Who is McCain trying to kid?

Here's Palin's record (http://mudflats.wordpress.com/2008/09/05/palin-vetting-documents-from-2006-for-hard-core-palin-addicts-only/) as Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, from the vetting document (http://mudflats.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/palin-2006-vetting.pdf)(PDF)
done by the Democrats in 2006, posted by Mudflats, the indispensable Alaskan blog.
Yes, Palin has been vetted before - just not by McCain:

Debt Service Increased 69 Percent Under Palin:

In fiscal 2003 — the last fiscal year Palin approved the budget — the
total government debt service was $658,662. In fiscal 1996 — the year
before Palin took control of the budget—the debt service was $390,385.
The increase was 69 percent.
>>> [Wasilla Comprehensive Annual Financial Report 2003, Table 1]

Palin Left Behind Almost $19 Million In Long-Term Debt,
Compared to None Before She Was Mayor:

In fiscal 2003—the last fiscal year Palin approved the budget—
the bonded long-term debt was $18,635,000. In fiscal 1996—
the year before Palin took control of the budget—there was
no general obligation debt.
>>> [Wasilla Comprehensive Annual Financial Report 2003, Table 10]

Long-Term Debt Was $3000 Per Capita When Palin Left,
Compared to None Before She Was Mayor:

In fiscal 2003—the last fiscal year Palin approved the budget—
the bonded long-term debt per capita was $2,938. In fiscal
1996—the year before Palin took control of the budget—there
was no general obligation debt.
>>> [Wasilla Comprehensive Annual Financial Report 2003, Table 10]

When Palin Left Office, 6.24% of Government Spending Was
On Debt Service, Compared to None Before She Was Mayor.
In fiscal 2003—the last fiscal year Palin approved the budget—
the ratio of debt service to general government expenditures
was 6.24 percent. There was no long-term debt before she
took office.
>>> [Wasilla Comprehensive Annual Financial Report 2003, Table 11]
In so many ways, Palin is a contemporary Republican: no abortions ever
but mounds and mounds and mounds of debt for the next generation.

September 6th, 2008, 08:30 PM
Isnt her daughter pregnant? Soon to be GILF?

September 6th, 2008, 08:48 PM
Yes, she does at 17 years old. I guess it runs in the family. Sarah herself has 5 kids.

September 6th, 2008, 08:48 PM

And to think I was gonna have a V-8 :o

I just had a Bacardi while picturing her nude. :cool:

This and a little Jesus talk should be a real ice breaker ...

If I were McCain, I sure know what I'd be doing with my right hand.

September 7th, 2008, 04:33 PM
I'll bang her so hard, it'll be difficult to broker a ceasefire.

September 7th, 2008, 05:48 PM
just imagine her standing there in nothing but heels and stockings and a bra....i would smudge her lipstick and then mess up her hairdo....

and then I would shoot it all over her glasses...

You would bring peace to the Middle East in that same matter :D

In Alaska they call them "snowmachines." (He drives a green one. (http://flickr.com/photos/brittanyr/2270404927/in/set-72157603926510081/))

Make a video and send it to Joe Biden.

Im betting Biden would like to do her as well!

(What a funnya-- thread!)

September 8th, 2008, 01:11 PM
God this forum is going to a bad place if you cant post stuff like this. The thread has MILF in the title! Anyone who is offended is stupid for reading it in the first place.

September 8th, 2008, 01:22 PM
Considering that the edit took place in a post by LL no one should be too surprised if LL crossed some sort of line (nothing personal, LL, but you do sometimes seem a bit, shall we say, poon crazy :cool:).

btw: That ^ is a reference to an infamous NYC architect (http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/showpost.php?p=215266&postcount=653).

September 8th, 2008, 01:28 PM
lofter, that was pretty much the case. alonzo, much of this thread would be offensive to women. Everything has its limits.

September 8th, 2008, 01:50 PM
Have there been any complaints? What did you expect of this thread? Geniune MILF, its pretty obvious that this is what the thread would contain so should have been deleted at the outset if its offensive to women.

September 8th, 2008, 02:01 PM
I thought that this thread could be handled responsibly (in fact, I first brought up the VPILF website on the other thread), but some of the posts have crossed the line.

September 8th, 2008, 02:32 PM
Guys, although you may say "MILF", going on and describing exactly what you would do is a little overboard.

The only thing you have to imagine is how comfortable would you feel if there was a kid in the room that overheard what you said?

"I'd bang her" is one thing, you can cover that up, but the spraying comment was more than a bit off the deep end (sorry whoever posted that).


That "Horny" photo is funny as all get out. The strange thing is, I think that is just where she fits in.

Nothing really wrong with it EXCEPT that it does not make you the best candidate for a position in foreign relations (hell, even the Norwegians would look at that and say "That is so last decade! Our viking helments are MUCH better than that!" Well, they would use more umlauts and schwas and stuff, but I don't know how to do them....).

Well, I was going to say something els after reading Lofters comment back on page 6 or something, but it was so important I forgot. :rolleyes:

September 8th, 2008, 02:50 PM
the new ultimate MILF

September 8th, 2008, 02:55 PM
....nothing personal, LL, but you do sometimes seem a bit, shall we say, poon crazy ....

I know. I need therapy. Everything I do is motivated by the vertical smile!

Wow! "She" is disgusting.

I've always been amused by Janet's resemblance to Ms. Choksondik from Southpark.

Oh yeah, she used it to try to keep that airborne bear/wolf shoot bill....

Saved the state SO much money in kills that her poor hunters on the ground were denied due to "competition".

Palin dolls go on sale as her popularity soars

Last Updated: Tuesday, 09 September , 2008, 16:59 http://im.sify.com/sifycmsimg/sep2008/News/14754954_palin_doll_250.jpgLondon: Two new action dolls of Sarah Palin, the running mate of Republican Presidential candidate John McCain, have gone on sale as her popularity is soaring in the US, a British newspaper reported on Tuesday.
Sarah Palin-the Executive and Sarah Palin-the Super Hero are the two variations of the dolls on the Alaska Governor that have been on sale in the US, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The dolls are the latest in a line of American political candidates who have been immortalised, including John McCain and Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, according to the newspaper.
The Sarah Palin dolls are also available online on www.herobuilders.com (http://www.herobuilders.com). The Sarah Palin executive doll was priced at $27.95, while the super hero version priced two dollars more.
The dolls are designed in a bid to capitalise on the Sarah Palin mania that gripped the Republicans since the electrifying speech by the self-confessed "hockey mom" at the party convention in St Paul, Minnesota last week.

Not a bad looking woman but I cant get past her crazy beliefs like that the world is only 5,000 years old!

But she, and most of her supporters, can't count much higher than that!

That is why she looses track of all those budget things she says she is cutting when her state actually gets the most and spends the most per capita than just about any other in the union!

Sarah Palin : Genuinely Small-minded

Her looks are mediocre and attractive at best. But I guess in terms of the political realm there is some validity which doesnt say much. Im just waiting for the media to do its job and scrutinize Palin's "experience" and judgement like any other candidate.
McCain's picking Palin as a running mate was purely political. This from the man who touts "Country First". She clearly is unqualified and was chosen to excite and shore up the conservative base. The sad thing is that people will still vote for McCain because they like Palin's appearance and or her conservative religious ideology. So once again for many it comes down to personality. Such backwards thinking.

September 11th, 2008, 07:22 AM

When Mrs. Palin plays dumb (http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Vote2008/Story?id=5782924&page=4) it gets me so hot:

GIBSON: Do you agree with the Bush doctrine?

PALIN: In what respect, Charlie?

GIBSON: The Bush -- well, what do you -- what do you interpret it to be?

PALIN: His world view.

GIBSON: No, the Bush doctrine, enunciated September 2002, before the Iraq war.

PALIN: I believe that what President Bush has attempted to do is rid this world of Islamic extremism, terrorists who are hell bent on destroying our nation. There have been blunders along the way, though. There have been mistakes made. And with new leadership, and that's the beauty of American elections, of course, and democracy, is with new leadership comes opportunity to do things better.

GIBSON: The Bush doctrine, as I understand it, is that we have the right of anticipatory self-defense, that we have the right to a preemptive strike against any other country that we think is going to attack us. Do you agree with that?

PALIN: I agree that a president's job, when they swear in their oath to uphold our Constitution, their top priority is to defend the United States of America.

I know that John McCain will do that and I, as his vice president, families we are blessed with that vote of the American people and are elected to serve and are sworn in on January 20, that will be our top priority is to defend the American people.

Becoming Sarah ...

Getting In Palin’s Hair, or Close to It

Chester Higgins Jr./The New York Times
Bettie Rogers, a “Saturday Night Live” hairdresser, with a Sarah Palin wig.

NY TIMES (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/17/nyregion/17about.html?ref=nyregion)
September 17, 2008

About New York

While any girl or boy can, technically, grow up to be president, only Tina Fey can become Sarah Palin, at least on “Saturday Night Live.”

And even for her, that means a hairdresser, a team of wig makers, colorists and a pound of human hair.

“A wig takes 40 to 50 hours to make,” said Bettie Rogers, the show’s head of the hairstyling department. “We read the sketches on Wednesday night to determine the wigs to be built at Bob Kelly’s, a wig maker on 46th Street. The ladies who make the wigs work around the clock until Friday night, sometimes even late Saturday.”

Everyone knows that Governor Palin looks like Tina Fey. In fact, for many people, it’s just about all they know. And at the Republican convention, quite a few delegates seemed to think that their new vice-presidential candidate was at least as funny as Ms. Fey.

Ms. Fey answered the call, returning over the weekend to “Saturday Night Live,” where she had been a writer and a star from 1997 to 2005 before going on to further comedic glory as the writer and star of “30 Rock.”

How hard could it be to get Ms. Fey fixed up like the governor?

“After Tina saw the wig on her head, she thought her ears stuck out,” Ms. Rogers said. “She wanted her ears glued back. That required the services of Louie the Makeup God. That was around the dress rehearsal, late in the day Saturday.”

By the time the show aired at 11:30 p.m., Americans who had dozed off in front of the television and suddenly awoke could be excused for thinking that the actual Sarah Palin was speaking to them from the screen, mildly sparring with a Hillary Clinton look-alike played by Amy Poehler.

“What an amazing time we live in,” Ms. Fey said in her Palin character, tracing the magic of her own trajectory. “To think that just two years ago, I was a small-town mayor of Alaska’s crystal meth capital.”

Even after Ms. Fey departed from her regular role on the show in 2005, a cork and canvas replica of her skull lived on. This was a head block, made from a plastic mold, for fitting wigs.

“Most of our women cast are wigged from the top of the show right to the end,” Ms. Rogers said. “We’re out there live; we don’t have time to fix up the hair during the changes. It’s more fun to throw on a wig in five seconds. Sometimes, they have a minute or less to do a complete change of clothes and hair.”

When a political figure is going to be portrayed in a sketch, the show’s research department finds pictures and the latest video for the makeup people to study. (This should put to rest any idea that candidates for high office do not get in-depth scrutiny from the media.)

Reproducing the Palin hairdo required the creation of a wig that combined a “French twist with a ’60s bouffant kind of thing, and bangs,” Ms. Rogers said.

Is there a name for this hairstyle?

Ms. Rogers shrugged. “You should ask Palin’s hairdresser,” she said.

Yet merely getting the shape, spin and volume of the hair did not mean that Sarah Palin would come to life. There were tones and highlights to consider: “It’s darker at the nape of the neck, and shows transitions to a lot of different colors,” Ms. Rogers said. “We also have to go back and root it. We paint in darker colors right at the roots, to give it contrast.”

All four national candidates show great promise for comedy writers, but there probably isn’t a male analogue of Tina Fey to play Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., not to mention the complications that could be involved in replicating his hair, which seems to be a particularly fraught piece of real estate.

“When Tina put the wig on Saturday, we had to trim the bangs a little bit, because they were hanging in her eyes,” Ms. Rogers said.

No plans have been announced for any additional appearances by Ms. Fey as Ms. Palin, but the wig has been stored for safekeeping.

“She changed the shape of her lips to make them more like Palin’s,” Ms. Rogers said of Ms. Fey, “but that was done with makeup, not with prosthetics.”

No sense making any permanent changes until after the election.

Palin's Pot Problem

Why should other Alaskans be arrested for
something Sarah Palin once did with impunity?

reason.com (http://www.reason.com/news/show/128824.html)
Jacob Sullum
September 17, 2008

When it comes to questions about youthful marijuana use, Sarah Palin is no Slick Willie. "I can't claim a Bill Clinton and say that I never inhaled," the Republican vice presidential candidate told (http://dwb.adn.com/news/politics/elections/governor06/story/8049298p-7942233c.html) the Anchorage Daily News in 2006, before she was elected governor of Alaska.

Although Palin's handling of the issue scores higher on the candor meter than Clinton's, she has the same difficulty reconciling her personal experience with her policy positions, a problem also shared (http://www.reason.com/news/show/125059.html) by former pot smoker Barack Obama. None of them has a persuasive answer to the question of why other Americans should be arrested for something they did with impunity.

Pot smokers who are arrested do not typically spend much time in jail. But as a 2007 report (http://www.cognitiveliberty.org/rpts/col_sanctions.htm) from the Center for Cognitive Liberty & Ethics noted, they pay a substantial cost that includes not only public humiliation and legal expenses but collateral sanctions such as "revocation or suspension of professional licenses, barriers to employment or promotion, loss of educational aid, driver's license suspension, and bars on adoption, voting and jury service."

According to figures (http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2007/arrests/index.html) released by the FBI this week, about 873,000 people were arrested on marijuana charges in the United States last year, a new record. Pot busts accounted for nearly half of the 1.8 million drug arrests; as usual, the vast majority, about 775,000, were for simple possession, as opposed to cultivation or sale.

This is the fifth year in a row that marijuana arrests have increased, but the upward trend (http://www.norml.org/index.cfm?Group_ID=7698) began in the early 1990s. Three times as many people were arrested on marijuana charges last year as in 1991.

The increase in arrests does not correspond (http://www.reason.com/news/show/123502.html) to an increase in use; instead, the chance that any given pot smoker will be busted (though still small) is much higher than it was two decades ago. It is also higher than when Palin attended college in the '80s, which is presumably when she tried marijuana.

By way of extenuation, the Anchorage Daily News reported, Palin noted that marijuana "was legal under state law," although "illegal under U.S. law." In 1975 the Alaska Supreme Court ruled (http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/legal/l1970/ravin.htm) that the state constitution, which says the "right of the people to privacy is recognized and shall not be infringed," prohibits the government from punishing people for possessing small amounts of marijuana in their homes.

A 1990 ballot initiative ostensibly recriminalized all marijuana possession, but in 2003 the Alaska Court of Appeals ruled (http://www.cognitiveliberty.org/dll/noy1.html) that "a statute which purports to attach criminal penalties to constitutionally protected conduct is void." The following year, the Alaska Supreme Court declined to hear the state's appeal of that decision.

In 2006 the state legislature, at the urging of Palin's predecessor, Frank Murkowski, passed another law that supposedly made private possession of marijuana for personal use a crime. A judge found (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/cgi-bin/PrintStory.pl?document_id=2003118645&zsection_id=2002111777&slug=webpot10&date=20060710) that law unconstitutional as well, and the Alaska Supreme Court is considering (http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/story/351040.html) an appeal of her ruling.

The upshot is that smoking marijuana in the privacy of one's home is just as legal in Alaska today as it was when Palin did it. Evidently she regrets this situation.

As mayor of Wasilla in 2000, Palin championed (http://www.hempforus.com/137.htm) a city council resolution opposing a ballot initiative that would have legalized marijuana for adults. Last March her administration asked (http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/story/351040.html) the Alaska Supreme Court to reverse its 1975 decision shielding private marijuana use, arguing that the drug is more dangerous than it used to be.

In other words, Palin got to smoke pot without worrying about legal consequences and now wants to deny that assurance to fellow Alaskans doing exactly the same thing. "Palin doesn't support legalizing marijuana," the Anchorage Daily News reported in 2006, because she worries about "the message it would send to her four kids."

It's Palin's job to teach her children that certain pleasures are reserved for grownups. The government should not continue to arrest adults who are harming no one simply because her children are easily confused.

Palin Throws Alaska Under the Bus. (http://mudflats.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/palin-throws-alaska-under-the-bus/)

Mudflats (http://mudflats.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/palin-throws-alaska-under-the-bus/)
17 09 2008

GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is effectively
turning over questions about her record as Alaska’s governor
to John McCain’s political campaign, part of an ambitious
Republican strategy to limit embarrassing disclosures and
carefully shape her image for voters in the rest of the country.
That’s the lead in from the Anchorage Daily News story (http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/story/528928.html)about the latest GOP strong-arm tactics to perform what many Alaskans feel is an outside political takeover of the state’s Troopergate investigation. A pack of high-powered east coast lawyers are the new artisans of the Palin “image”. If anyone has a question about Palin’s 20 months as governor, ask the McCain campaign, because apparently no one else can give you the answers.

This is not going over well in Alaska. I’ll use my usual caveat that there are lots of Alaskans who happily subscribe to the “Sarah right or wrong” mentality, and will continue to do so. However, the progressive take on this whole latest mess is only slightly short of taking torches and pitchforks and surrounding the Attorney General’s office, demanding an end to the stonewalling. I’ve watched Alaskan progressives that I personally know go from saying, “Wow! I can’t believe I voted for a Republican!” to, “She’s doing OK. I don’t agree with everything, but I don’t regret my vote” to being so furiously seething angry they just can’t say anything.

This means that there’s a shift, and shifts tend to bring along all people to a certain degree. If there’s one way to tick off Alaskans it’s by bringing in ‘outsiders’ to try to control state affairs. Imagine if you will how a small independant nation would feel being invaded by the superpower next door. It’s like that.

I’ve even lived to see the day that Republican State Senate President Lyda Green (often vilified by Democrats over the years) agreed to do an interview on the local progressive talk radio station, and was practically hailed as a hero. Why? For simply stating the investigation should and will move forward despite the fact that the Attorney General, under the influence of McCain lawyers, said that state employees would defy their subpoenas. “Nothing has changed,” she said. “Our job is to find the truth.” Real integrity coming from either side of the aisle is what Alaskans want. It’s in desperately short supply these days.

And again, and again, I hear Alaskans quoting that now infamous promise of our governor (who is still our governor by the way) to run the state with “ethical, open and transparent” government.

It remains to be seen how effective the so-called “Truth Squad” is in ’shaping her image’ in the rest of the country, but they are not doing her any favors here at home. I’ve never heard so many people say they can’t wait to see her new approval ratings.

Meanwhile, the opposing side, not to be outdone by a goofy name, has come up with ”Alaska Mythbusters,” a nod to the popular television show. This white hat version of the Orwellian “Truth Squad” is made up mostly of elected officials who have opposed or know Palin and who criticize her work.

So what does the Attorney General Talis Colberg have to say for himself? I know a couple people who know Colberg, and respected him deeply until recently. I heard from a friend of his that this whole thing is really taking a toll on him. “He’s really a decent guy,” says my bewildered friend. So, what say you sir? Hello? Are you there?

Oh. Talis Colberg just went ”on vacation” to Kansas. You can’t make this stuff up.

Beware of tornadoes, falling houses, and flying monkeys! Nothing would surprise me any more.

Maybe the only thing about her office/candidacy and life that will be "transparent" right now will be what she wears to town hall meetings... :p

Has Mrs. Palin's allure faded? Is the romance over? Or is it just that America is discovering she's not all that sexy -- or none too smart?

Watching her right now on MSNBC: She's looking tired and tight and none too happy.

Palin Cancels Appearances.
“NOT Because of Poll Numbers.”

18 09 2008


Sarah Palin has cancelled her two-day swing (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/sfgate/detail?blogid=14&entry_id=30444&tsp=1) through California
next week, the McCain campaign said today.

Whether the planned Sept. 25 fundraiser in Silicon Valley, which
will raise money for state and federal GOP efforts, will go on
without Palin as headliner is unclear.

Campaign spokesman Rick Gorka said the Alaskan governor’s
calendar was “fluid” and he could not say where Palin would
go instead of California, nor if she would reschedule a visit
here before Election Day. McCain and Palin are campaigning
today and tomorrow in Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Then
they will head to Florida, which is shaping up to be a very
competitive state.

A Field Poll released earlier this week found that while Palin
had helped McCain solidify support among his GOP base in
California, the ticket had made no inroads among independent
voters, a key bloc the GOP needs to win to be competitive in
California. Among likely voters, the Barack Obama-Joe Biden
ticket has a 16 percentage point advantage over the

And a national poll out today showed Obama with a 5-point
lead over McCain, a reversal from their standings before the
Wall Street economic crisis hit.

Gorka said the decision to send her elsewhere next week was
not made because of the polling results. “It’s a scheduling
thing,” he said.
So … it’s a “scheduling thing”, but “her calendar is fluid” and nobody knows where
she’s going to show up next. And it is NOT, I repeat, NOT because of poll numbers.
Maybe she was afraid they’d make her play “Stump the Candidate (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/18/palin-at-town-hall-play-s_n_127389.html).”

Palin strikes again (http://thinkprogress.org/2008/09/18/palin-energy-nonsense/):

"Oil and coal? Of course, it’s a fungible commodity and they
don’t flag, you know, the molecules, where it’s going and
where it’s not. But in the sense of the Congress today, they
know that there are very, very hungry domestic markets that
need that oil first,” Palin said. “So, I believe that what
Congress is going to do, also, is not to allow the export bans
to such a degree that it’s Americans that get stuck to holding
the bag without the energy source that is produced here,
pumped here. It’s got to flow into our domestic markets first,"

Get in line behind the guy with the yellow card.

Patrick Andrade for The New York Times
Eitan Levine of Springfield, N.J., left, had a personal message for Gov. Sarah Palin at a rally against Iran’s president on Monday.

Palin Call Me’
About an hour later, a group of monks from Bhutan wandered into a protest pen on East 47th Street where Mr. Ahmadinejad — again — was being denounced, this time by a group of Iranian expatriates. The monks, clad in maroon robes, paused and gazed at the group before explaining that they were simply attempting to get to an airport.

Across the street, a young man wandered along Second Avenue with a green placard upon which he had written, “Palin call me,” along with a mobile phone number.

Reached at that number a few hours later, the man identified himself as Eitan Levine, 19, a Yeshiva University (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/y/yeshiva_university/index.html?inline=nyt-org) student from Springfield, N.J. He said that the sign was meant as a show of support for the Republican ticket and that he hoped the vice-presidential nominee would get in touch so he could extend his regards in person.

“There’s always a possibility she’ll call,” he said. “One can only hope.”

The Twelve Lies Of Sarah Palin

Andrew Sullivan / Daily Dish (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-twelve-odd.html)
23 Sep 2008 10:49 am

http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/images/2008/09/22/palinbillpuglianiogetty.jpg (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/2008/09/22/palinbillpuglianiogetty.jpg)
(Photo: Bill Pugliano/Getty.)

Just for the record, I asked an intern to go back and double fact-check
the twelve documented lies that Sarah Palin has told on the public record.
These are not hyperbolic claims or rhetorical excess. They are assertions
of fact that are demonstrably untrue and remain uncorrected. Every
single one of the lies I documented holds up after several news cycles
have had a chance to vet them even further.

I know the MSM demands that we move on from the fact that someone
who could be president next January has a list of public lies so extensive
and indisputable that the McCain campaign has still not been able to rebut
or even address any one of them, while fencing her off from the press and
refusing to hold a press conference to clear the air on so many murky
questions of fact that get to the core of whether this person is fit to be
vice-president or president.

So for the record, let it be known that the candidate for vice-president
for the GOP is a compulsive, repetitive, demonstrable liar. If you follow the
links, here is the proof. I repeat: proof:

- She has lied about the Bridge To Nowhere (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-lies-of-s-2.html). She ran for office favoring it,
wore a sweatshirt defending it, and only gave it up when the federal
congress, Senator McCain in particular, went ballistic. She kept the money
anyway and favors funding Don Young's Way, at twice the cost of the
original bridge.

- She has lied about her firing (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-lies-of-s-4.html) of the town librarian and police chief of Wasilla, Alaska.

- She has lied about pressure on Alaska's public safety commissioner to fire her ex-brother-in-law (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-lies-of-s-1.html).

- She has lied about her previous statements on climate change (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-lies-of-s-3.html).

- She has lied about Alaska's contribution (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-odd-lies--1.html) to America's oil and gas production.

- She has lied about when she asked her daughters (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-odd-lies--3.html) for their permission for her to run for vice-president.

- She has lied about the actual progress (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-lies-of-s-6.html) in constructing a natural gas pipeline from Alaska.

- She has lied about Obama's position (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-lies-of-s-9.html) on habeas corpus.

- She has lied about her alleged tolerance (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-lies-of-s-7.html) of homosexuality.

- She has lied about the use or non-use (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-odd-lies-of.html) of a TelePrompter at the St Paul convention.

- She has lied about her alleged pay-cut (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-odd-lies--4.html) as mayor of Wasilla.

- She has lied about what Alaska's state scientists (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2008/09/the-odd-lies--4.html) concluded about the health of the polar bear population in Alaska.

You cannot trust a word she says. On anything.

Palin In City To Meet With Foreign Leaders


Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is in the city today meeting with world leaders for the first time in her political career.

The Alaska governor had meetings with Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, who are in town for the United Nations General Assembly. She also sat down with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

The meetings are part of a McCain campaign strategy to give Palin experience in foreign affairs.

The governor, who has not held a press conference since being added to the GOP ticket, at first did not allow reporters into the meetings, but changed her mind after they protested.

John McCain is campaigning around Ohio and Michigan today.

This morning, McCain picked up the endorsement of a construction workers union in Ohio. The Republican told the workers that he is concerned about how the Wall Street meltdown will affect them.

"I know that a lot of eyes have been on Wall Street and Washington for the past week as we all process the credit crisis that's hit our economy in such a devastating fashion," said McCain. "But I want the people in Ohio here to know that I have not forgotten the economy on Main Street."

Meanwhile, Democratic rival Barack Obama is taking several days off the campaign trail to prepare for Friday night's debate with McCain in Mississippi.

In an interview with NBC, Obama said the bailout plan would probably delay his proposed spending program, but its effect on his tax plan is unclear.

Obama supporter, former President Bill Clinton, made an appearance on late-night television last night to weigh in on the economy and to stump for the Illinois senator.

On the "Late Show with David Letterman," Clinton said the best way to solve the fiscal crisis is to help the middle class out of debt and invest in new energy sources.

He warned that the country's economic troubles are dire, and said Obama is best qualified to lead the country in a new direction.

"A lot of people will go into that polling place and say, 'you know, I really admire Senator McCain. He gave about all you can give for this country without getting killed for it. But I got to have a change. I think I'm going the other way,'" said Clinton. "That's what I think will happen."

Clinton also spoke about his Global Initiative, which begins its annual four-day meeting today in Manhattan.

John McCain is scheduled to sit down with Letterman tomorrow.

You have a problem only if you fail to understand the psyche of a huge chunk of the American people.

After all, Mrs. Palin is going to shake up Washington and chase the bad guys out of town. She's going to clean up the crooked cesspool. She now knows Henry Kissinger. She has five kids and can gut a bear.

What in all that would not give one confidence that she is the next best person to do the job of saving America?

September 24th, 2008, 02:31 PM
Peopel were sold on her picture before they knew what she really was.

Now their own pride and ego are making it difficult for them to admit they were wrong. You see it a lot in society. Some people will refuse to acnowledge a bullet can be deadly until they are killed by one! ;)

The second thing is, 'we' thought that Dan Quayle would be suitable for the VP. What does that say about our own opinion of the job itself?

Letterman summed it up perfectly about palin meeting foreign leaders and Kissinger.

September 26th, 2008, 09:07 AM
When you start to see Katie purse her lips (sorry Katie, but you are getting old!) and those little lines of.....approval surround her mouth, you get a very clear message.

"WTF are you blathering about? I didn't ask about that! Are you going to answer my question, or do I have to make it more blatantly obvious what I am asking to avoid more scripted talking points?"

Sarah is like one of those dolls where you pull the string and a certain random phrase comes out (one out of 5 or so).

Admittedly, she is MUCH more complex than that. I think she has at least 12 and I have heard her COMBINE more than one at a time!!!!!

I have to had it to Mattel, they really have outdone themselves on VP Barbie!

It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state."

Yes indeed Sarah, they're right there.

Mrs. Palin does have experience -- specifically in LOSING. Case in point: The 1984 Miss Alaska Beauty Pageant competition where she came in THIRD (Second Runner Up).

The winner of the Miss Alaska title that year was Maryline Blackburn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryline_Blackburn) who has since left Alaska and gone on to have success as a singer (http://www.marylineblackburn.com/).

Maryline recalls kicking Mrs. Palin's butt (http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/myfox/MyFox/pages/sidebar_video.jsp?contentId=7387866&version=1&locale=EN-US).

In the 1984 pageant Maryline voted for Mrs. Palin for Miss Congeniality (http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/myfox/MyFox/pages/sidebar_video.jsp?contentId=7387866&version=1&locale=EN-US), but will not be voting for her in 2008:

"It's all about Obama, baby!"

September 29th, 2008, 10:13 AM
Let's be fair; she's done rather well with her life.

September 29th, 2008, 10:53 AM
Never said Mrs. Palin hasn't moved up.

And she's definitely done well for herself and her immediate family.

But, as they sing in the heartland: she's gone about as fer as she can go (per the Peter Principle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Principle)).

Losing becomes her -- and if Mrs. Palin loses soon then it will save us all a lot of pain later.

September 29th, 2008, 11:06 AM

LA Times: (http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-na-palinreligion28-2008sep28,0,3643718.story)

After conducting a college band and watching Palin deliver a commencement address to a small group of home-schooled students in June 1997, Wasilla resident Philip Munger said, he asked the young mayor about her religious beliefs. Palin told him that "dinosaurs and humans walked the Earth at the same time," Munger said. When he asked her about prehistoric fossils and tracks dating back millions of years, Palin said "she had seen pictures of human footprints inside the tracks," recalled Munger, who teaches music at the University of Alaska in Anchorage and has regularly criticized Palin in recent years on his liberal political blog, called Progressive Alaska (http://progressivealaska.blogspot.com/).

September 29th, 2008, 11:06 AM
What I implied by 'doing rather well' was not LOSING.

She's just in over her head. Not her fault; the world was perfectly at ease with her in Alaska. Hopefully, she'll return to that life. What Alaskans think can be decided in their gubernatorial election.

Maryline Blackburn? She got a Wiki page when Palin got the nomination.

Free Palin? McCain Camp Readies VP For Debate

The Huffington Post

Rachel Weiner

September 29, 2008 08:30 AM

Despite bad reviews from all sides, John McCain's campaign has decided that having Sarah Palin do big broadcast interviews was a good idea [so does Obama], the National Review reports:

Team McCain tells me the strategy of having Palin talk to traditional broadcast networks ABC and CBS was designed to allow Palin to reach the maximum number of viewers. "Coming off her tremendous performance at the convention, our goal was to allow as many Americans as possible an opportunity to see her answer questions about her record, her biography and her principles and convictions on as large a stage as possible," one campaign source told me this afternoon. [Now she's a YouTube icon] The new CBS interviews [Goodie, there's more], to be done tomorrow, are intended to keep Palin in the public eye as she prepares for Thursday's debate.

In fact, the new interviews have already been recorded but will air before the debate. [Doctored? Maybe that's why McCain cancelled Letterman for Couric.]

Bill Kristol says McCain isn't happy, however, with the way his staff has been handling Palin and is making some changes for the debate:

I'm told McCain recently expressed unhappiness with his staff's handling of Palin. On Sunday he dispatched his top aides Steve Schmidt and Rick Davis to join Palin in Philadelphia. They're supposed to liberate Palin to go on the offensive as a combative conservative in the vice-presidential debate on Thursday.[Palin Unchained. An RNC movie coming soon.]

The Wall Street Journal has more on Palin's liberation:

McCain campaign manager Rick Davis and senior adviser Steve Schmidt are planning to coach the candidate ahead of the debate, according to senior advisers. They traveled Sunday to meet the Republican vice-presidential nominee in Philadelphia. After her appearance with Sen. McCain at a rally in Columbus, Ohio, these top officials plan to fly with her on Monday to Sen. McCain's ranch in Sedona, Ariz., which they hope she will find a comforting place to prep, these people said.

More broadly, the McCain campaign aims to halt what it sees as a perceived decline in the crispness and precision of Gov. Palin's latest remarks as well as a fall in recent polls, according to several advisers and party officials. [Whut?]


Some prominent Republicans and senior members of Congress have expressed worries about certain facets of the Palin campaign, particularly that Gov. Palin may be "overprepared" and not encouraged to be herself, an adviser said.

"She hasn't had the time or inclination to question the judgments of the people telling her to hit her marks,"[Maybe they should have picked Tina Fey.] said one Republican strategist. "Gov. Palin is a team player, but the campaign needs to adjust to a game plan that works for her.


"It's time to let Palin be Palin -- and let it all hang out,"[That's all we want. We have a good supply of hand lotion] said Scott Reed, a Republican strategist."

September 29th, 2008, 02:24 PM
"It's time to let Palin be Palin -- and let it all hang out,"

Avoiding the Zippy Pun there, I find this the most ironic statement of the entire article.

"It's time to let Palin Be Palin, just like we are teaching her to do!"

Free Palin? McCain Camp Readies VP For Debate

... Gov. Palin may be "overprepared" and not encouraged to be herself, an adviser said.

"She hasn't had the time or inclination to question the judgments of the people telling her to hit her marks," [Maybe they should have picked Tina Fey.] said one Republican strategist. "Gov. Palin is a team player, but the campaign needs to adjust to a game plan that works for her ...

NBC might make a mint if they were to get Tina Fey to put on the Mrs. Palin wig this Thursday night and do a simulcast where Fey shadows Palin -- give her a 5-second delay so she could digest the spiel and then mouth every word the Governor speaks.

It'd be interesting to see if the real debate or the imitation pulled the higher ratings.

Alas, I guess we'll just have to wait until Saturday ...

I've noticed that when the news programs show one of the SNL clips, they preface with a disclaimer - the following is Tina Fey, not the Palin interview.

You know it's bad when your statements are being mined verbatim as comedy material.

go to


yesterday it redirected you to the mccain website

then this came out http://www.govgap.com/2008/09/28/john-mccain-own-voteforthemilfcom/

and now it redirects you to Wikipedia?

So wouldn't that imply McCain owns voteforthemilf.com?

Oh btw, I have no intention of hijacking this thread, but, can someone please show me in the bible where it says jesus rode dinosaurs, can someone please show me where it says the world was 6000 years old.

Just because morons like palin believe this crap doesn't mean that all Christians do.

Not bad... I think what's nice about it is that it will serve to keep the Couric interview and the SNL parody fresh in everyone's mind... and note the same pink jacket.

September 30th, 2008, 07:49 PM
I think Biden is-a gonna get medieval on Palin's a$$ with a pair of pliers and a blow torch.

September 30th, 2008, 08:18 PM
All he has to do is give her enough rope...;)

September 30th, 2008, 09:25 PM
I guess we'll see how good Sarah is at Double-Dutch. She had better tie her shoe laces....

September 30th, 2008, 10:03 PM
I predict Biden will make her cry uncontrollably.

September 30th, 2008, 11:11 PM
Just let her talk uncontrollably. That'll do the trick.

Bruce Elliott, whose wife owns the Old Town Ale House, painted this nude portrait of Republican
vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. He said his daughter, who does a good impression of the
Alaska governor, served as model. (Kuni Takahashi, Chicago Tribune / September 29, 2008) (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-talk-naked-sarahsep30,0,4944201.story)

"I've been following her religiously," he said Monday at the bar. "I had never heard of her before, like everyone else. I find her bizarrely fascinating, even though I pretty much despise everything she stands for."

With his VP choice, McCain has elevated the VP debate to the level of critical (for McCain) campaign issue. I mean, except for Bentsen-Quayle in 1988, who remembers any of these.

Ironically, Katie Couric, the also-ran of network news, may have her name attached to the defining issue of the long 2009 election cycle. For historic reference, we can call them The
Palin Chronicles.

In another installment, Palin is stumped trying to name one Supreme Court case other than Roe v. Wade.

You might say Palin just drew a blank, happens to everyone; but she overlooked Exxon Shipping v. Grant Baker, concerning the Exxon Valdez oil spill at Prince William Sound, Alaska. The ruling was made on June 25th, 2008, and as governor, Palin was interviewed about it.


I'm sure the debate tonight will break the record for viewership. There'll be many reasons to watch, but I'll be tuning in for...

"they'll be many reasons to watch, but I'll be tuning in for..."

....... What?, the wood?

October 2nd, 2008, 09:42 AM
Biden has to be careful, if he's too hard on her idiots will feel sorry for her. He should be shrewed about it and give her every chance to come up short and expose herself for the fraud that is the current Republican party.

October 2nd, 2008, 10:17 AM
Short answers, Joe. Just like you did at the primary debates.

Let Sarah do all the talking.

October 2nd, 2008, 10:20 AM
As has been said, the only thing he should focus on is the simple stuff.

Joe 6-pak is great to hang out with, but...

Do you want him babysitting your kids?
Do you want him doing your taxes?
Do you want him performing your appendectomy?
Do you want him defending your BIL in that court case thingy....
Do you want him to QB your favorite pro football team?

NO NO NO!!!!

You want to go have a 6-pack with Joe 6-pak! You want to invite him over for a barbecue. The last thing you want is someone fixing your car who thinks they know a lot about cars because they have looked under the hood while his was being serviced.

In the same vein, I do not want to send someone out to talk with Vladamir Putin who thinks they know them because the state they govern is physically close to it.

Does that mean that I know a lot about finances because I live close to wall street? Or that I know Martial Arts because of the Judo school across the street? (PS, neither are true! ;) ).

The key for him is to deliberately get her off her talking points. She did well in her gubernatorial debates when all the topics were addressed on her cue cards. She is a commentator, not an administrator. She started in News and, GUESS WHAT? She is good at reading things out lout to a bunch of people!!!!!

But ask something that her book of GOP Mad-Libs can't address properly and you will see her trip herself up.

The key is to lead her to the top and just let her push herself down the stairs.

October 2nd, 2008, 05:46 PM
The McCain campaign needs a game-changer.

At the debate, look for a wardrobe malfunction.

October 2nd, 2008, 06:03 PM
^^^ Hopefully, from Palin, and not Biden. :cool:

Though, you're right about Biden just needing to give short, crisp answers. Nothing fancy, just keep it simple.

She is doing very well so far in tonight's debate. I think she's holding up very well and may even be doing better than Biden at the moment.

Vast improvement over her last few public interviews. The coaching she must have received has worked very well.

October 2nd, 2008, 10:54 PM
She did very well, but it felt like she was tenaciously sticking to The Script (gotta love the get-out-of-jail-free card she gave herself at the beginning of the debate to dodge the questions) whereas with Biden you sensed that he was responding to things as he saw fit, not as some political advisor told him to do.

October 2nd, 2008, 11:00 PM
go to


Is there really such a website? I have to look for it.

I don't support her, but I did love all of the shots from the rear during the debate. She has a nice bum. I don't think I ever watched a political debate with a tube of lube in-hand. It's a good thing my wife was asleep.

By the way, for those of you with kids, can you believe how quickly her bod bounced back considering that she pumped out a baby a few months ago -- especially considering that she's 44.

I got a box of Obama waffles (only as a collectible),
so tonight the company sent me an email with their lasted offering:To Celebrate the VP Debate!

This was one of my favorite moments (aside from when Mrs. Palin repeatedly said "Nu - Kew - lar"):

IFILL: What has this administration done right or wrong -- this is the great, lingering, unresolved issue, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict -- what have they done? And is a two-state solution the solution?

PALIN: A two-state solution is the solution. And Secretary Rice, having recently met with leaders on one side or the other there, also, still in these waning days of the Bush administration, trying to forge that peace, and that needs to be done, and that will be top of an agenda item, also, under a McCain-Palin administration.
Mrw. Palin either can't seem to remember with whom Rice met -- or she doesn't differentiate between the two parties. Or maybe she was just too chicken to try and pronounce Tzipi Livni (http://www.state.gov/secretary/rm/2008/08/108910.htm) :cool:
