Is this a joke or what? This young, little known woman has only been governor of Alaska for barely 2 years and he thinks she is ready to become leader of the free world and a heart beat away from the presidency? This has to be one of the biggest political blunders ever, at least since Dan Quayle.

So much for experience. That argument is completely out the door now for the Republicans.


Obama is a shoe in now.


Obama/Biden 08

So then, if experience is your yard stick, then Obama, with his 180 days of Senate experience (unlike Palin, with a FINE record during her short tenure of producing positive change, ethics reform, and cutting waste), and NO executive experience..... shouldn't even be considered for VICE President, let alone leader of the free world?


Keep harping the "Palin has no experience" card, and it will only highlight Obama's obvious shortcomings!

Cause guess what? Vice President IS an acceptable place to learn how to be president. If we're going for Old guy/Young guy, the ticket should be BIDEN/OBAMA, not OBAMA/BIDEN.


Something tells me, however, that's not really something you care about.

No, it's not!

McCain can go around saying his ticket got it right ... the experienced candidate's on the top of the ticket.

NO it's NOT! The Vice President is there mostly to be able to step into the office of the Presidency at any moment!

She's currently under investigation for trying to get her sister Molly's ex-husband (Mike) fired from the state troopers. Mike and Molly are in the midst of a bitter divorce and custody battle.

The GOP is selling Palin as a reformer?!?! Sounds like she's the one who needs reforming! And while we're taking issue with her characterizations, how about the feminist title? She was a beauty pageant girl! LOL!


Can you imagine if something happens to McCain (God forbid) and this person became president?? Terrifying.

Can you just imagine how Biden will embarrass her in the debates?! Ha!

Wow, she was a governor just as long as Obama was a Senator......so that tells me, Obama isn't ready to lead the nation.

Obama's short political career is considered change and hope, so shouldn't Palin's short political career be called the same....change and hope????
