I'll take the choice of sound maturity, experience and judgment at the top of the ticket, together with inexperience with strong family values and a positive sincere attitude of service as a Vice president. The alternative is too horrible for the U.S. to contemplate!

Amen J. Pierpont Finch!

Obama's speech Thursday night boiled down to: "tell them what they want to hear". How is Saint Obama going to pay for all of this spending? How is he going to deliver on his promises?

Obama claims his policies will create 5 million new "green collar" jobs...well, that will provide jobs for a third of the illegal aliens ready pour across our borders if he's elected...what about jobs for American citizens bub?

If you called a plumber to fix your pipes wouldn't you prefer that he's worked on other pipes before? Would you want your pipes to be the first set of pipes he's ever worked on?

So we have a choice between a young, inexperienced plumber with an bumbling old assistant or an experienced plumber with a sharp young assistant...which plumbing company are you going to call?

Johnny Boy made what is arguably the most dramatic VP choice in US history (It shocked even the Gringo Advisory Board, which knew nothing about Sarah Palin, but our quick studies caught up fast. See yesterday's comments.)

There is no way on earth the lib eliteniks can even begin to grasp the significance of a mother of five who can shoot, hunt and fish, skin a moose with her own hands, articulate as well as any Democrat, is no more Ivy League than was Ronald Reagan, is an athlete, personable, attractive, solidly pro-life,ready to drill, a professional communicator, has more executive experience than Obama-Biden combined, a reformer who fights the kind of corruption that made Obama in Chicago, has the highest rating of any Governor in the USA (80%), has electrified the conservative base and suddenly brought the Republican Party out of the same place that McCain himself had escaped from earlier in the year: the graveyard.

And all this while the Pubs were groaning "Where O where is the next Ronald Reagan, or why can't we have anything like a Margaret Thatcher?"

If Pailin holds up in the 24/7 national spotlight (we're betting she will), GAB is prepared to forgive Johnny Boy for passing up Mitt Romney. Johnny tossed the dice like the last of the great riverboat gamblers (after wiser heads steered him away from utter catastrophe with Joe Lieberman).

From the crystal gringoBall: Election 2008 for the White House is now the Republicans' to lose.

I look at Obama/Biden and I see 2 elitest lawyers; I look at McCain/Palin and I see a soldier and a mom.

Sarah Palin launched her political career in the PTA and Obama launched his political career in the living room of an unrepentant leftest terrorist.

As one who wouldn't vote for a Republican at gunpoint this year after the arrogance and stupidity of Bush, I still think Sarah Palin's a great choice. She is exactly the sort of candidate the Republicans should rebuild around after their coming disaster this November. She is honest and smart and principled. She did not choose to abort a Down's Syndrome child, and she is sending her own son to fight a war, unlike most of the chicken hawk leaders. She has opposed corruption in her own party. IMO a far better choice than the drab alternatives like Romney.

Hiyall, that's very well analyzed. Let's hope the McCain/Palin team will make a point of the fact that we have two machine lawyers running against a soldier and a fishin' mom.

That almost sounds like the premise for a movie. The lawyers representing Matrix Washington, soldier and mom up for the fight of their lives to save America from plunder and eventual enslavement by edict and taxation.

As a cold-war vet, I see the communist threat from the inside out and it's leader isn't the democrat's candidate. He's their puppet. Our Constitution is under assault by the left because it works to their disfavor. Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution is it written "There shall be a separation of church and state." However, those words do appear in the U.S.S.R.'s constitution of 1936 verbatim. Go look it up. I'd rather have someone run this country that is from the world's oldest profession than from the world's second oldest profession. Down with the Fairness Doctrine. Speaking of which, why are those in favor of such a doctrine, presently unable or unwilling to practice fairness in the media at the present? I also see a threat from the radical Mohammedans. Ours is a tolerant Christian country. Not a lame one.

(Monica):"She's a cool chick and a tough cookie. I say again: somewhere Hillary smiles."
------------------------------------
And there is no joy in Mudville tonight (Obama land) because of this VP pick. This is a brillant pick by McCain. I've said all along he needed to think outside the box on this pick and he hit a grand slam homerun. She was very impressive speaking, I think she is a better speaker than McCain and will come close to Obama. I think she will be even more effective than Obama because he only spews platitudes while she will actually speak substance.

I believed from the gitgo that Obama shot himself in the foot with Biden. With Biden he will ensure that a large part of the Hillary vote will go to McCain and now that McCain has picked a woman that will only ensure more women go with McCain.

I love the Sarah Palin pick. I can see her being the first woman President in the future.

SteveOk

Oh Monica, you are a cool chick and a tough cookie too!

Ummahgummah

I agree with Monica lot of the time, but I hardly think Hitlery is smiling.

If the taxman loses Hitlery will have to defeat him in the 2012 Primary. Then she'll have to run against an incumbent woman vice President.

hehe.

And if the taxman wins.. GOD HELP US!

Ummahgummah

The only thing worse than a taxman is an angry taxman.

Even worse a taxman with an angry wife and a hateful preacher from an angry town..

Legalized mob rule will be upon us.

Hold on to your wallets, folks.

Monica, this was a move of Nixonian proportions; grand & visionary in nature.

McCain-Palin will triumph this fall and you are absolutely correct, she will play well in Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania...

B. Hussein Obama and Joe Bin Biden are going down and they know it.

You don't think Sarah Palin has the Obamatoadies wetting themselves?

Take a look at what Charles Johnson has dug up at LGF,

Story out that claims PALIN SUPPORTS GAY MARRIAGE etc.

The average reader would not be able to trace the source. Johnson can. He got on it, shows how he traced it and found the ultimate source was---Surprise---the Obama site that is supposed to be for STOP The SMEARS!

Here's the link.

The Democrats have launched their attacks on Govenor Sarah Palin, wailing about her lack of experience and calling Senator John McCain's mental capabilities into question for naming her...hmmmmmm. Let's ponder some important matters here.

First off, Barack Obama's camp lamenting about Sarah Palin's lack of experience is like the pot calling the kettle black (no pun intended)!

We could always choose to submit to the emotional blackmail Jimmy Carter's employed by playing the race card again (another Democrat playing the race card...and they're the ones with the black guy..go figure) when he said America would be showing itself to be a racist country if we don't elect Barack Obama.

Wait a minute. Let's see here... If memory serves me correctly, Barack Obama acquired the majority of his "earned" delegates through caucuses (including Iowa-his "breakout" state). Now we all know that caucuses aren't a vote of a state's populace. They're a collection of party insiders deciding who should be awarded delegates. So party insiders granted Obama the majority of his "earned" delegates. But that still wasn't enough to defeat Hillary Clinton. Obama had to rely upon "Super Delegates" to make up for his shortfall during the Democratic "primary" season. Therefore, more Democratic Party insiders had to step in and hand the nomination to Obama over Hillary Clinton.

The party bosses even went so far as to broker a deal that included Clinton's walking out on the convention floor to call for an end to the delegate count and nominate Obama by acclaimation. (Makes for dramatic television coverage and perpetuates the myth that they're united.)

So the Democrats have a nominee who's been hand picked by the party bosses, while a candidate who accumulated 18 million votes in the primaries isn't even on the ballot.

This is the party of the little people?

Sounds like affirmative action to me!

So now we have a choice between an experienced, qualified white man or an inexperienced, unqualified black man. Of course we all know that affirmative action would pick Obama in the interest of "racial equality".

But WE don't have to. This is an election by the people, to choose a leader of the people. A leader for the people, not the Democratic party bosses.

We can choose to submit to Jimmy Carter's blackmail and cave in to affirmative action, or we can follow Dr. Martin Luther King, who's historic "I Have a Dream" speech called for a time when his children "will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character".

Should we submit to blackmail and cow down to affirmative action, or follow the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King and judge Obama by the content of his character? After learning of Obama's character and the character of many of his present and past associates, then comparing that against the content of Senator McCain's character makes for an easy choice.

We don't need a radical left wing Affirmitive Action President!!!!

Vote John McCain for President!

Palin has a lot of positives as a Republican VP candidate. She's got a great life story and believes strongly in conservative social values. The rest of her resume, while admirable, is not particularly compelling. Yes, she has some administrative experience -- George Bush had more and look where that got us -- need I say more? As to "reformer," I'm not clear whether she simply used what the FBI did to win an election or whether she's actually done more (she did say no the the "bridge to Nowhere" but she kept the federal money.)

McCain needed to energize his social conservative base. He got that with Palin. Choosing a woman who talks about a "glass ceiling" may be aimed at Hilary's woman supporters but it serves another purpose admirably -- insulating Palin from press scrutiny. The campaign can just yell "sexism."

If McCain thought his choice would attract Hilary's women supporters, he shows contempt of both our intelligence and our motivation for supporting Hilary.
While I don't like the economic policies McCain stands for, I did believe he "put country first even if it meant losing an election." No longer. He fails the first test of a Presidential candidate -- choosing a VP who can step into the Presidency if necessary. Through no fault of her own,Palin cannot do so. McCain chose politics over the country's welfare.

Far from wooing Hilary supporters, he has motivated a lot of us to work very hard for Obama's election

Jean,

I could care less who you vote for and I really could care less what Hillary's supporters think (by the way you mispelled her name).
http://www.hillaryclinton.com/

We believe that Governor Palin is qualified for her position and has much more experience than your candidate who is running for President. In fact, here is a chart comparing the two.
http://www.justsaynodeal.com/

Speaking of sexism, I've been listening to upset women call in to talk radio all day and they, like me, are appalled at the sexist attacks directed at Governor Palin. Keep up the great work. You're getting us votes.

Senator McCain seems to "get me" just fine. Wow, I can FINALLY understand why you Obama people were fainting at Obama speeches. Whenever, I watch Senator McCain on the news lately, I start feeling faint myself.

I think it is great that you and your friends are supporting Obama. Why don't you find Bill Clinton and talk feminism with him too. These Republicans guys are REALLY hot and I certainly don't the need competition.

Later, I'm busy watching the Republican Convention.

M/M

Jean,

It doesn't surprise me that Hillary supporters will support Obama because Democrat women seem to love being abused by men. Hillary stood by her man in the White House and now she will stand by Obama. Hope she enjoys campaigning for Obama.

We really don't enjoy watching bright, well-educated women publically humiliated by their men, but I guess that is what turns feminists on. Have fun campaigning for Obama/Biden. When I see you out on the campaign trail for Obama, this is what I'll be thinking

Monica --

Your essay is a compliment to the man who first had the guts to put a woman on the ticket as his running mate: Walter Mondale.

Actually, Jean, Bush was the governor of a state whose constitution created a weak executive. His main activity as governor of Texas was going to photo ops. Palin's experience as governor of a large state with a strong executive may be more valuable.

Unfortunately, Palin believes in creationism so she's a looney toon. Please work extra hard, Jean.

Ummahgummah

Unfortunately, the Chose One believes in PC liberlaism, redistribution and One Worldism so he's a sellout.

Please work extra hard, all you freedom-loving talkshow hosts and their callers!!

FK

My #1 priority is for Bush to be gone forever.

#2: It would be nice if the Republicans lost so that they can learn that they will not be granted more time in the White House when they do a pitiful job.

#3: If the Republicans win, McCain is still better than Bush. I'll just have to put up with his VP's weird views.
