Sigh. Just another hysterical "Mommy! They stole my candidate's lunch money and beat him up on the playground" post.

And I gotta say. It's really not THAT hard to make McCain look terrible in the first place. The trick is in making him look good. She just didn't bother to try (for the cover) and had some of her own personal ill fun (with the photo she used for her site).

There are a bajillion pictures of Obama with a towel on his head or a cig butt hanging out of his mouth floating around the internet...so pull up your big girl panties and get on with things, that's life.

Well, he does.

OK, I am really trying to determine if you're being sarcastic here

Nice

I'm waiting for Obama's qualifications since you state that Palin has none lol

This thread isn't about Obama's qualifications or Palin's. It's about McCain and why he chose Palin. I question McCain's judgement in choosing someone as his 'partner' who only adds youth and cuteness to his ticket. I think it's a terrible indicator of his judgement. I might have thought more seriously about voting for him if he had chosen someone with a long track record, a history of smaller government or business experience. Here's an example of a Republican woman who has paid her dues and whose selection I would have supported. Olympia Snowe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I agree and I 'm for Obama. If Snowe had been selected I would've at least had respect for the choice. I would've had hope even if Obama lost.
Thanks for the link.
Snowe has sponsored a bill to help breast cancer patients spend more than 48 hours in the hospital after surgery. A Democrat had originally presented the bill but it's been years since it was first introduced and I don't know why but now Snowe is, or has been, pushing for it.
She's very attractive but is too old to earn the lust of voting males so she was rejected.

Excellent post above, it's too bad that McCain chose someone, with winning the election in mind, not someone who is qualified to possibly run the country and be the president of the senate. The looks thing was made to play to the redneck dummies who want to be spanked by her. Snowe and Collins were two republican women that would have given a GOP ticket I could at least respect. This ticket is worse than Bush and Cheney, and Palin is 90% of the reason why.
