GWB would ruin this woman in a debate. She's never done a formal job interview in her life, and so far it has shown.

What's fascinating to me is how much hatred toward women is coming out in this thread... Way past the intelligence slams to her clothing and her genitals. It's no surprise, mind you... The same type of insults (e.g. "Shut your whore mouth when Obama is talking") filled any threads about Clinton during the primaries.

So tell me... Is this just the old Democratic "anything it takes to win" approach (cue Al Gore's "If we hadn't made those promises we would not have been elected" speech) or is this symptomatic of a deeper problem?

You certainly have a good role model. Despite Obama's praise for his grandmother, who seems to have progressed far for a "typical white woman", the female staffers on the Obama campaign earn signicantly less than the guys. That not only makes him a liar, but a hypocrite as well.

Maybe he just hides it better than the rest of you do....

The biggest doofus on the planet is Joe Biden, odds are 1:1 he will stuff his shoe past his adams apple. He is not only a gaff machine, but a total embarrassment to the dems, and now completely irrelevant because of Sarah Palin. It's been Hussein vs. Palin since she showed up, and Biden, where is he? You libtards are stupid, just like your socialist reps. When has socialism worked? Where? Wake the fark up.

Ahh, so you just happen to remember someone that has been banninated since before you made your account, and you just happen to have immediately started your troll act within a month of making that account.

I like this new Republican talking point of flip-flopping within the same paragraph and in some special cases sentence.

Example: Say what you will about McCain and your own libtard candidates, but you only make yourselves look petty, mean-spirited, shallow, and ignorant dissing Palin.

Translation: I'm free to insult you by equating your party to an insulting term for people with Downs Syndrome, but if you have an opinion against Palin then you're a bad person.

Almost in the same ignorance category as McCains, "Now is not the time for partisan politics, but the bailout failure was all Obama's fault."

The fact that Palin is now on record as an Ageist makes me wonder what in the hell were the Republican elites thinking when they shoved her down McCains throat?

Nice picture, funny post. However, it doesn't represent what you think it does. My wife had the DeepBrainStimulation surgery (DBS) to stop the violent and twisted movements caused by Dystonia. Parkinsons anfd other movement disorder patients also have this surgery.

A+ for effort, though.

Look for the obvious to answer your question.

The RNC has never liked McCain. They knew they couldn't win the 2008 Presidential Election. So what do they do (see #1) and how do they benefit (see #2)?

1. They put up McCain (a man they've hated for years) to throw him that bone, because no one else was dumb enough to commit political suicide for this election cycle. Add in Palin, who will help stem the tide of losses in local/state elections, because those crazy evangelicals always pull a straight (R) ticket.

2. The GOP doesn't like McCain or Sarah Palin exactly BECAUSE they are "mavericks". They go against their party, they try to oust long time party members. The benefit to the RNC with a McCain/Palin ticket is this....a) They finally get rid of McCain when he loses with a pat on the back and sorry my man, we tried and b) they get rid of Palin who has been farking with the GOP in Alaska and giving out oil profits to its citizens and trying to reform the state gov't there, especially in regards to members of her own party.

It's a great stance for the RNC. They effectively get to kill 2 birds with one stone during this election cycle, all the while, gearing up for 2012.

Oh and the BONUS here for the RNC, they get to stick this mess on a (D) President, a (D) majority Senate and a (D) majority Congress.

Full win/win/win/and more win for the RNC.

Holy crap... After reading the first few comments, you guys actually have no idea how badly Joe Biden is going to get beat down. Having lived under his "rule" in Delaware since he's been elected, Joe doesn't have the best mind-to-mouth coordination.

This isn't partisan speaking, this is just the plain truth.
 
2008-10-01 10:59:34 AM  

hubiestubert: OyleSylck: To be fair, by all accounts Biden should totally demolish Palin in the debate. But if he doesn't, a tie would actually be a Republican victory. If Palin can get through without making foolish or indecisive statements and not come across rattled that just might happen. I just can't see that happening though.

Even though the debate was changed and lowered the answer time down to 90 seconds, I can see 10 seconds of butchered talking points followed by 80 seconds of "deer in the headlights" from Palin. Awkward.

Biden doesn't need to crush Palin. He needs to focus on McCain. And force Palin to defend McCain's policies and stands. That's all.

Leave her out of it. Leave her experience off the table. Leave her alone. Concentrate on his only target, which is the top of the ticket.

Palin will get into trouble on her own, so all he has to do is concentrate on his job, which is to defend his candidate, and to tear at hers.


How insightful. You only forgot one thing: Obama is hoping he keeps his mouth shut because everytime he opens it, he make's his partner look like an idiot for choosing him. So it's kind of hard to verbally attack an opponent if you don't speak, but since he runs off at the mouth, Obama has himself insured his own loss in November. Now that's the kind of change I can believe in.

I swear, if she mentions that her husband rides a snowmobile again I'm going to scream. Nobody cares, never did never will. Lots of us ride snowmobiles, it's fun. However, if I had to put value on the spouse of the VP Nominee being a champion snowmobile racer I'd have to put it somewhere between could their mother curl her tongue and what's their best friend's favorite color.

She's been introduced to us, to most she's incredibly boring. To some the idea of having our VP attend a church where the phrase "demons be gone" scares us, but when she lost her best two one liners due to them being fabricated bullcrank she lost most of her appeal.

t3knomanser: Darth Shatner: So...in other words Biden cant even hit a homerun against a shirt drooling retard who cant even speak in complete sentences....yet you want him to be your #2 guy.

Whoa, back up there son, he's not my #2 guy. I'm in favor of abolishing representative government and replacing it with a technocracy designed and maintained through systems analysis and consensus building. Nobody is running on that platform though.

As for your supposed point, we'll stick with the baseball metaphor. Biden isn't going to hit a homerun because he isn't a homerun hitter. He will hit a lot of doubles and probably a few triples. Remember, in baseball, if you hit a triple but run home because the fielders drop the ball, that's a triple and an error, not a home run.

thermodie: So you are saying that Death row is ok for KILLERS and the innocent because some guy or gal didn't use their basic common sense?

You're not talking sense, you're foaming. The fetus is not a welcome guest and can be evicted from property where it is trespassing. Would you let me crash naked on your couch for nine months?


As much as YOU don't deserve life, I would rather you live naked on MY OWN couch, than have you murdered by a "doctor" with razor sharp knives, one slice at a time, or pierced in the back of the skull, pried open and your brains vacuumed out - without anesthetic. What a short-sighted loser you are though, an absolute douche.

CanadianCommie: I won't be watching it in its entirety, because the Canadian debate (english debate) is on the same day.


I'm sure it will be downloadable from a dozen different websites immediately after the debate ends (CSPAN.com, CNN.com, MSNBC.com, FoxNews.com, ABC.com, NBC.com, CBS.com, YouTube.com, etc.).

Gwen Ifill is writing a book on Obama scheduled to be released the day of the inaugaration. It is a pro-Obama book. Gwen is also moderating the VP "debate". She stands to earn money with her bias. She should not even be considered for moderating this debate. The fix is in, enjoy the civil war.

So what you're saying is that the McCain camp researched the moderator as well as they did his VP pick.
 
2008-10-01 1:48:26 PM  
Cite that they did not know? Oh, and this book has been on Amazon sicne July and Foxnews even did a story on it. Link (new window)

So, due diligence would suggest they check into the moderators ... however, this book is about several political leaders not just Obama.

I mean, yeesh, how much stonewalling are you planning on doing?

What's going to be funny is if she can parrot like a champ. Program her up with a lot of canned responses and watch her perform like a Lipizzaner. Sometimes it's not the intellectual quality of the response, it's being stuffed full of comebacks that negate the statement without addressing its content.
