    It looks like McCain didnt even bother investigating Palin - bet he is regretting that now with all these stories coming out. I mean some of them were online for months. It wouldnt take long to do a Google search.

    Yeah but some Republicans will never ever believe it even if it comes out that Palin killed a kid while high on meth. You would not believe how some people put her on a pedestal. Its almost scary. My aunt is one of them that is just batshit crazy over her, the way she speaks about her you would seriously think she's God-like. I brought up casually about the baby scandal and she got pissed, saying its all a smear campaign, and how she has some sort of gifted vagina because she's such a strong woman! Its really bizarre. I can't figure out why, either.

    The press is going to have a field day with her in the next few weeks. All of Cindy McCain's money and they couldn't afford a PI to at least do some research?

    This is amazing:
    "On Saturday, a Democrat tasked with opposition research contacted the Huffington Post with this piece of information: as of this weekend, the McCain campaign had not gone through old newspaper articles from the Valley Frontiersman, Palin's hometown newspaper. How does he know? The paper's (massive) archives are not online. And when he went to research past content, he was told he was the first to inquire.
    "No one else had requested access before," said the source. "It's unbelievable. We were the only people to do that, which means the McCain camp didn't." (...)
    It has been previously reported that the McCain campaign did not contact Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan, who Palin pushed to have fired after he refused to remove her sister's former husband from the state's police force. That controversy, an investigation of which will be made public in late October, could cause major headaches for Palin in the days leading up to the election.
    In addition, the former Republican House Speaker of Alaska, Gail Phillips, admitted to reporters that she was shocked by McCain's choice of Palin, as "his advance team didn't come to Alaska to check her out.""
    The more I learn about this choice, the more it reminds me of Bush's choice of Harriet Miers. I don't think it's at all similar in its political ramifications -- Miers' nomination was seen as a betrayal by social conservatives, the very people who are thrilled by Sarah Palin. But it is similar in the manner in which each was chosen. In each case, the person who made the choice had wanted to pick someone else, someone he regarded as a close friend., In each case, he was told that he couldn't choose that person because it would be politically disastrous. In each case, the person who made the choice responded not by sitting down and thinking about who might fill the role s/he was to be nominated for with distinction, but by making a quick and ill-considered choice of a plainly unqualified person, a choice that seemed like an insult to the office that person was nominated to fill.
    Moreover, in each case that choice reflected the fact that the person making it was chafing at the discipline required of him. As far as I can tell, Bush reacts very badly to the idea that his powers as President are limited in any way, or that he owes anything whatsoever to his party or his allies. McCain is similarly undisciplined: he has been willing to do what his party requires of him, up to and including sacrificing his honor and his principles, but he visibly bridles at it, and he seems to be thrilled at the chance to be a maverick again. If that requires picking a vice presidential nominee who is wholly unprepared to take over as President, without doing anything like the vetting a Presidential campaign would normally require, then so be it.
    Discipline is not McCain's long suit, and he loves to gamble:
    ""Enjoying craps opens up a window on a central thread constant in John's life," says John Weaver, McCain's former chief strategist, who followed him to many a casino. "Taking a chance, playing against the odds." Aides say McCain tends to play for a few thousand dollars at a time and avoids taking markers, or loans, from the casinos, which he has helped regulate in Congress. (...) "He clearly knows that this is on the borderline of what is acceptable for him to be doing," says a Republican who has watched McCain play. "And he just sort of revels in it.""
    Picking Palin without doing a thorough background check first is of a piece with this: chafing at discipline, playing the odds, liking to bend the rules and get away with it, wanting to be a bad boy. These are not character traits I'd like to see in a President.

    If they had to admit to facts, they'd have to change their vote because reality and their rationales do not connect.

    Democrats or Republicans: they are all the same, lying, manipulative, pompous, ignorant, repulsive douches.

    If I were an American, I'd demand an election with Kang and Kodos instead.

    Holy shit, I canNOT believe you're still trying to pull that. -_-

    Obama has seven years experience as a state legislator, and two-three years and a state senator. That's about TEN years of state wide experience.

    Palin? Two years. Before she was just a mayor. Joy. That's gauranteed to give her ALL the experience she needs, yes sir! But who needs experience, when she can just use her model-looks to woo everyone in Washington, and just let them go with whatever she wants?

    ^ Do you mean, she was only working part time, before, or she's still doing it part time, now?
