The simplest reason why I say that? She has been ultra, ultra controversial and divisive and I cannot recall anything this at best, newsworthy and controversial, even if it's mostly bad and at worst, nutty and one who is bringing out hate in a lot of people. Yea, I see the raves and all that from the right or McCain supporters, however, do you see the hate on the side of the Repugs for Biden (or Edwards back in 2004)? Whoever the Dems would have chosen for prez, would have gotten hate from the right/GOP, just because, but that is not what I'm addressing here. I'm talking about the VP pick.
Come on, you mean to tell me that McCain could not have chosen Elizabeth Dole, either of the two Maine senators (I honestly cannot come up with other GOP women besides that), or an Hispanic like the Senator from FL or Michael Steele or JC Watts if he wanted to aim for a minority group?
This is scary and sickening to think that this woman could be 1st in line for the most powerful office in world, with her hateful, condensending ways (don't give me the Michelle Obama crap, she won't be in an official government office).
If the Republicans got elected in Nov, I still would have been very disappointed, but not almost hateful, since I have had enough of hating this current adminstration. Palin just made this ticket something that would make proably 99% of those who are for Obama, feel sick, sick beyond sick, if elected, I was hoping against that big time.
