I honestly don't think she could find Russia on a map. Like those girls in high school who (I am not even remotely kidding) could not find China on giant wall map of the earth which had giant text labels on all the countries, even though they spent well over 60 seconds looking.

Georgia is one thing, but if Ukraine joins NATO it's all over.

Seriously... McCain-Palin = WW3.

Quote:
Mr. McCain [defended] his earlier statement that Ms. Palin was “the greatest vice presidential candidate in the history of the United States.”


Also.

Quote:
“The Republicans, the Democrat party, even the independents. She’ll reform all of Washington.”

How?

“By doing what she did in Alaska.”

What, exactly?

“First of all, earmark spending, which she vetoed a half a billion dollars worth in the state of Alaska.”

But she also put earmarks in.

“Not as governor she didn’t,” Mr. McCain said.


Except she did. Fuck you, John McCain.

Quote:
At times visibly nervous, at others appearing to hew so closely to prepared answers that she used the exact same phrases repeatedly, Ms. Palin most visibly stumbled when she was asked by Mr. Gibson if she agreed with the Bush doctrine. Ms. Palin did not seem to know what he was talking about. Mr. Gibson, sounding like an impatient teacher, informed her that it meant the right of “anticipatory self-defense.”


We are so dead.

Quote:
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will not cooperate with a legislative investigation into the firing of her public safety commissioner, the McCain-Palin presidential campaign announced Monday, accusing supporters of Democratic rival Barack Obama of manipulating the inquiry for political motivations.


Saw that coming.

Also, how dare anyone mention the fact that a vice presidential candidate is being investigated for gross abuses of power. That's blatant sexism and politicking.

So yeah...

Quote:
Allies of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin stepped up attacks on state lawmakers investigating the firing of her public service commissioner Tuesday, calling it a "McCarthyistic" inquisition and asking judges to block the probe.


I agree. The similarities between a baseless witch hunt and actual criminal investigations are numerous.

Especially since, apparently, she has an unofficial history of pulling that kind of shit throughout her career.

As CNN pointed out, however, the party base (of either major party) is generally willing to believe lies told to them by their party in the face of fairly overwhelming evidence suggesting that the lie is, in fact, a lie.

In short: her criminal misconduct is going to be a boon to the Republican campaign... just like her incompetence and pregnant unwed teen daughter.

I can't believe she's directly fighting this. Can't the Republicans just discreetly murder some people and falsify some evidence instead of yelling "HEY GUYS PALIN HAS SOMETHING TO HIDE"?

I mean, this looks really, really, really bad for her.

The sad thing is, no it doesn't. People are told that it's an Obama smear attack on Palin, even though that makes no sense. They believe it.

I ordered one of those Obama/Biden 08 stickers!

Damn.

Also, my Wiccan friends political views are frankly retarded for the most part. I get embarrassed to be a pagan on occasion. A petition they were passing around a while back: "Impeach Bush because we have military advisors in Georgia! That damn warmonger!"

So someone hacked Palin's Yahoo email account.
