    Default John Kerry compares Sarah Palin to Dick Cheney, flat-earth people

    Palin is being compared to Dick Cheney




    (CNN) – Presumptive Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin has been compared to past VP picks Dan Quayle and Geraldine Ferraro for her relatively low profile on the national stage, but now Democrats are likening the Alaskan governor to another running mate: Vice President Dick Cheney.
    Speaking on ABC's "This Week" Sunday, Sen. John Kerry said Palin is a member of the "flat-earth caucus" and her stances on climate change are in lock-step with those of the vice president.
    "With the choice of Governor Palin, it's now the third term of Dick Cheney, because what he's done is he's chosen somebody who actually doesn't believe that climate change is manmade," Kerry said.
    Kerry also said Palin is "Cheney-esque" when it comes to her conservative stances on social issues.
    Shortly before being named John McCain's running mate, Palin told the conservative magazine Newsmax she does not believe climate change is man-made — a statement that puts her at odds with the preumptive GOP nominee and the 2008 Republican platform.
    "A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location," Palin told the magazine. "I'm not one though who would attribute it to being man-made."
    McCain has said addressing climate change is a top priority, and the Arizona senator backs implementing mandatory caps on carbon emissions if he is elected president. The 2008 Republican platform also includes the words "global warming" for the first time and refers to the effect of "increased atmospheric carbon."

    Oh John Kerry. I love you but this is not helping us. I already see the McCain attack ad: 'Obama's own supporters admit Sarah Palin is qualified!' :cue soundbyte of Kerry and overdub screaming 'HYPOCRIT! RUN FOR THE HILLS!'

    She is nothing like Dick Cheney. Because... Dick Cheney actually had an extensive political resume before serving as VP.

    I hate him but he was qualified:
    - White House Chief of Staff during Ford administration
    - Elected to the U.S. House of Representatives 5x, eventually becoming House Minority Whip.
    - Secretary of Defense during the presidency of George H.W. Bush


    I know Dick Cheny. And Sarah Palin, you madame, are no Dick Cheney.

    I don't think the Republicans take Kerry serious enough to care what he thinks. If Obama, Hillary or Biden said it, they'd probably pounce on it.
