As much as I hate both Obama and Palin, Palin is the worst.

My beef with Palin is that she was too goofy and unprofessional-seeming. An embarrassing yokel. Although, at least people knew she was a clown.

The only reason the free press is still watching her now is to see if she utters another jem of Palin wisdom!
Who'd have known that she would be so damn funny!

I disagree. She's smart, sassy, and moral. Good traits in a leader. Plus the Republicans can use good looking minorities to their advantage too.

Have you read the article on her from the newyork times?

There's the web address. Give it a read and tell me what you think.

I read the article and then did some research and thinking. Here's what I think:

-Franci Havemeister, Palin's appointed top of the Department of Agriculture, has spent her life in agriculture including the 4-H program, dairy, potato, vegetables, and greenhouse production. Plus, Alaska isn't exactly known for it's farming. She may be one of most quailified. Here's my sources: [link] [link]

-Oh yes, the polar bears. I've heard from various sources have stated that they are increasing in population and they're skinnier due to increasing population versus a stable food level. Also, arctic temperatures are said to go through 40 year warming/cooling cycles. [link]=D9B5452B-FF19-489D-B578-06A8105C7738 [link]

-As for her state trooper ex-brother in law, he tasered a 10 year old! He deserved to be fired and I give Palin a lot of credit for going after him.

-Now on to John Bitney. A cheater is embarrassing to any political administration.

-The book banning has been proven false. Since this is the ny times, this isn't surprising. [link]

-Talis Colberg has a JD in law and a PH.D in Northern Political History in culture. He sounds like a good law advisor and as a friend of Palin, she probably felt she could trust him. [link]

-The NY times ran an article earlier this year claiming John McCain slept with a lobbyist. This just a rumor and to report it as fact casts doubt on the credibility of the paper. Even former Clinton special counsil Lanny Davis says the articl has no merit.

Oh please, those websites are just as shitty as the NY times.... people from wasilla reported taking library books out of a library and finding missing pages or not being able to find a certain book because it had "unappropriate" content.... it shouldn't matter how inappropriate the content is, you're stripping America of it's freedoms. And it was proven to be a fact that this happened on CNN. Did you have the chance to watch Sarah Palin revealed? If not, please look it up on the website and give it a look.
Cheating on the other hand should be no one's buisness. Yes, it's always interesting to hear these bits about politicians. Who dosn't? But it should NOT affect their reputation in this country. People need to grow up and realize the real problems America is faceing. If Obama isn't elected, I guarantee this country will go into anothe DEPRESSION.
Mccain dosen't think there is ANYTHING wrong with our economy..... and why? Because the man owns 7 house and is married to a woman that probebly has more botox than Joan Rivers....
BTW..... REMEBER THE FIRST AMENDMENT.... SARAH DOSEN'T APPARENTLY.

At least you admit the ny times is shitty. Haha! I agree that it's wrong to censor and strip away freedom like that, but there is no proof that Palin tried to ban those books. In fact, some of the books, the Harry Potter series, wasn't published until one year after the supposed censoring. I started watching Sarah Palin Revealed on Youtube. I only watched the first two parts, but I found it interesting and intend to watch the rest.
Can someone who isn't trustworthy in their private lives be trusted with a position of power? I don't think so. While we all do bad things, cheating is pretty loathesome.
McCain only said the fundamentals of the US economy are strong. Fundamentals meaning the folks like you and me...Well, mostly me. Haha! Just kidding. But McCain has a long history in the Senate and has worked accross party lines. The latter is pretty rare. Obama doesn't seem like he could be that great as a president. The last thing a jeopardised economy needs is socialism. Though that's just my opinion.

I have to disagree on the cheating front. Sex in general imo is too complex a subject to make any kind of blanket statements like this.

Well... okay, maybe a handful of blanket statements are in order... male republican politicians who want to ban gay marriage while they molest under-age boys should at a minimum be removed from office, if not for the fact that their behavior is hypocritical but that it's also both illegal and immoral because they're taking advantage of children.

But when we're talking about sex between adults it's a whole different story. Most people's views of marital infidelity are based primarily on cultural bias and have little if any relationship to any kind of objective view of reality. And while we may not like the fact that a person is infidelitous that does not translate to "morally bankrupt lying sack of you know what" no matter how much we might want to think that it does. The reality is that a very large number of moral and productive members of our society are infidelitous in their marriages because of a combination of social pressures and problems in their relationship. The fact that they cheat does not make them unusually dishonest.

For that matter... check out a book called Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely, a professor of behavioral economics at MIT. The reality is that people as a whole are mildly dishonest. Cheating on a spouse just happens to be one particularly problematic area for us both psychologically and culturally and possibly even biologically. But the fact that a man or a woman has problems in their marriage and makes the decision to seek sex outside doesn't make him incapable of understanding issues that affect the public or making good (or bad) decisions about those issues. It probably has absolutely zero bearing whatsoever on his ability to address issues of public concern.

What we should be far more concerned about is what companies the guy invests his money in -- that probably has a much more direct impact on his policy making.

Maybe your right. Politicians are only human and I probably shouldn't expect them to behave differently. And sex is a strong instinct.
There are worst people than cheaters like you said(i.e. Spitzer and Foley.)
I might have to rethink that.

I'm really not fond of either candidates this year.... I agree that Obama is "unexperienced" and Mccain is old- 72, yes? I also think Sarah Palin is not experienced enough to be a vice president. It was a smart idea for Mccain to choose a woman..... my family calls that " the Clinton effect" i'm sure most undecided woman voters will tun to his side on election day, which isn't right. I really wanted Hillary to win the nomination and I was really suprised when she didn't(I was litterally in tears)
I think her husband was a great president. When he was president, gas prices were in the $1.00- $2.00 range. And after a year or two of Bush being president, my parents went bankrupt.... and now we worry about how we are going to pay my college tuition, which is going to be alot if i want to go to a university and then a top law school. :[
it's scary. to me even.

It's not so much Obama's inexperience that scares me as his views and long-time associates. And McCain being 72 is a little old for a president. I originaly supported Huckabee, but I forget why.
I really hope people vote for the party and issues, not the people, regardless of the side they're on.
I like that Bill Clinton expanded the death penalty and, from what I heard, left the economy alone as president. Plus giving aid to an almost bankrupt Mexico probably helped countless people.
Sorry to hear about your parents' money problems. I hope you'll get into that law school.

Hmm don't know if anything would get accomplished in just a year. It would save us from the bad times maybe but foreshorten the good ones too perhaps. I could see every two years maybe. I guess I am just too pessimistic about either party right now though. I still want to write Ron Paul in but I know it won't do any good. I'm leaning Libertarian but they just don't have enough clout and organizational skills to pull it off at this time.

Yeah, I was just kidding cuz I love election season. Libertarian candidates are almost never featured in the media. It's always the two big parties. I'm no libertarian, but that seems unfair. More Americans might side with Paul or Barr if they heard of them or thought they could win.

What's wrong with having a woman who shoots wolves from airplanes and eats moose stew one heart beat away from running the 3rd most populated country?

All joking aside, she seems to be a strong, moral, warm person, though little unusual. At least she's not a stiff or a fake like many politicians.

That was kind of a dumb statement. You'd think someone in the public spotlight and in politics would watch what they say a little more. And of course the opposing side will use it to their advantage.
This kind of madness makes politics fun. Is it like this in the UK too?

It's the same everywhere I reckon except the ';politicians' some nations resort to violent threats if they don't get elected. Thankfully we're not quite at that stage yet.
