Oh, yeah, right, sure, just put her on my "ignore" list here, yeah, that'll do the trick. Sorry, don't think you'll be able to "ignore" her for a couple more months, at least, and maybe, just maybe even 50 more months! Yea!

I say...let's encourage them to keep it up.


Obama took the "new guy" media craze and ran with it, propelling him to primary victory.

Sarah is where Obama WAS, just as people are getting tired of looking at Obama and listening to him and his stupid fake southern preacher voice. Only problem for Democrats is that Palin only has to ride the wave for... what? 6 weeks now?



I can't wait for Palin v. Biden. It'll be a repeat of Nixon v. JFK. The old windbag v. the fresh breeze.

I dunno...I feel they should attack her credibility every which way. I think ignoring was the philosophy and it's hurting Obama. You don't ignore a bully, you look weak if you do (imperfect analogy as I don't see her as a bully, but just sayin')

The problem is that Palin is easy to attack. She has so many skeletons in her closet and many things that are not quite right that she has become a red flag to a bull. It will be hard NOT to bring up her indiscretions but the Dems must try hard not to allow Palin to camouflage the empty policies of McCain. Hillary Clinton did this when Bill was running and it works. Cause a diversion. Palin wil take the attention away from McCains failings. It seems to be working.

Who?

But lets talk about the cynical desperation of the McFailed campaign..... how he is appearing more and more like a warm up act; he has gone from being a real concern, to an embarressment; a pathetic empty shell who gave up honor and pride because he would rather lose them both than this election.

If anyone can remember the old movie Blue Angel.....McSame is very much the cucolded professor at the end of the movie....the baffoon in baggy pants warming up the crowd for the woman he gave it all up for. I don't like him but it is sad to see him so humiliated and bereft of everything he once stood for and without a shred of dignity or honor.

Ignoring the Governor doesn't mean you have to ignore the poor Judgment of Senator McCain. Who's he kidding? His judgment is absolutely crushed by this poor choice and he left the door wide open. He doesn't understand what it takes to run the Economy and his poor judgment has been reflected in his first Executive decision - the selection of a Vice President.

Obama/Biden 08

Senator Obama needs to keep on the issues and hammer McCain on his lack of "change" in regards to how his administration would be virtually another 4 years of Bush. His surrogates and the media can keep uncovering Palin's skeletons...appears she has quite a few.

The Democrats' Palin problem won't be going away any time soon. And it could derail Barack Obama's fight against Republican John McCain - unless Dems summon the discipline to ignore the GOP vice-presidential candidate's celebrity and instead focus like a laser on campaign basics.

There ya have it. Done deal.

She's an enigma. Attacking her only makes her stronger. Doing nothing only makes her stronger. Basically the dems are damned if they do and damned if they don't. The have no counter to Palin. Their best option now is to begin planning for 2012.

Hopefully "Obama's party" will go back to being "The Democrats"... after a few heads roll and there's some major shakeups, of course.

I can't wait for Obama to be relegated to "Kerry" status.

Preferably, McGovern status.
