Or might be still doing, you know, on the down-low.
Another distortion of the facts. He admitted to doing it in high school, not later in life.

Besides, this reeks of pot/kettle. Remember, your current President had drug and alcohol issues.

And, to clarify - Obama is not my messiah. He's not my first choice for the Democratic candidate. I have no party affiliation. However, I know that to put McCain and Palin in office would be disastrous for our country, and only continue the pain the Bush and his ilk have gotten us into.

Regarding the "One Who Has Three Names" - WTF is that about? He has a middle name. So does McCain. Those against Obama (notice I don't stoop to name-calling to describe a group of supporters) just loooove to trot out his middle name, as if it makes him a terrorist or something. Get. Real.

You know who else has a middle name? McCain. Quick - without looking it up, what is it?

Hmm, hmmm, 'Adulterer', no? How about 'he who is married to narcotic stealing drug addict', no, too many words? How about 'C**t'? No, that's his little nickname for his wife. Ok, I quit, what is it?

You've just lost all credibility with this statement. Obamatrons? Heh. It'd do you some good to learn that blatant hypocrisy does not a convincing argument make.

Sorry...you're just incorrect. My husband just so happens to be a television producer. He's sitting right here, explaining to me why what you wrote is bull****. Sometimes, if a pre-taped interview is set to fill a 5-minute spot (such as the Couric/Palin interview), the interviewer may ask 15-20 questions and only air a dozen or so of the most important questions/answers that fill the designated time slot. Alternatively, the producers may be able to air the entire length of the actual interview, if all questions asked will fit into the desinated time slot. With an interview as high-profile as a VP candidate, it is most likely that the actual interview was shown in it's entirety, and nothing was cut.

However, television interviews NEVER last "hours and hours" as you claimed. Not even close. Do you honestly think that VP candidates (or Presidential candidates, for that matter) have that much time on their hands, that they are able to set aside "hours and hours" for tv interviews? Honestly? My husband also just mentioned that if Palin (or anyone else, for that matter) allowed an interview to last "hours and hours" she/they have a horrible media rep.

If your girl came across as "stupid, silly, or incoherent," it's because SHE IS, and not because of any effort on CBS's part. Any news outfit worth a damn, if lucky enough to get an exclusive interview with a VP candidate, is certainly going to air the entire thing.

Get a clue.

So this is Palin's deprecating, colossal mistake? She gave a bad interview?

I rather judge people on what they've done and what they say when they are speaking their minds, not trying to parse a flaky reporter's questions.

How can people believe that a person like Obama who has done nothing important in the past will somehow do great things in the future?...
Because he comes across well on TV? How sad.

Palin and McCain have engaged in real fights and tackled real issues. You can always leave it to the cultural elites to judge a person by their diction and TV presence.

How about we judge them on their knowledge, ethics, judgement and honesty?

Yes! I agree!

But watch now as the Democrats send their opratives into Alaska in an effort
to dig up any kind of dirt on her that they can find.
And if they fail to find anything, they'll make something up and the New
York Times will print it as fact.
Sarah in a bathing suit? Oh! How scandalous! She must be a Hussy! A loose
woman.
But Barney Frank running a male prostitution ring from his basement? Oh,
wait. That is his own business, right? No scandal there.
And Sarah's pregnant daughter? Fair Game according to the Press. But stifle
the photos of Chelsea Clinton puking her guts up from a car door after a
night of boozing.

And did Palin have an "affair" years back? She didn't but the Press alluded
to such. But Bill Clinton's open and hundreds of tawdry affairs were touted
as being 'personal' and had nothing to do with how he performed in office.

The hypocrisy goes on and on and it is no wonder that Mainstream America no
longer believes the Press or the likes of NBC or CBS. It is understandable
that Fox News is now the most watched news media in these United States.

I will say this. I was not especially enamored with McCain, but I DO like
the fresh honesty that Palin brings to the table. She has fortitude, and
while she doesn't have all the rote answers down to suit the likes of Katie
Couric or Matt Lauer, she is honest. I don't expect her to have all the
'right' answers. And I do not hold it against her for being unwilling to
talk with the openly hostile Press. She doesn't have to dance to their tune.
She doesn't owe them squat.

What this boils down to is that Governor Palin could well be the reason that
McCain might win this election. And the Dems are ****ting bricks because
they have nobody to present that is as appealing as Gov. Palin. She is very
popular with Mainstream America and could easily become our first female
President.
I can live with that. Better her than Hillary.

Well said, adysmom! You brought up just some of the hypocrisies of the left. To be honest, I wasn't crazy about Palin as the VP pick. I thought it was gimmicky, and would have prefered someone who could actually help McCain on the campaign trail, rather than someone who needs so much help and individual attention. But when I saw the visceral response from the left; the absolute hatred that they couldn't hide, I changed my mind.

Politico, your hubby's a TV producer?! Wow, you're a gen-u-wine Hollywood limousine liberal - the kind my mama warned me about! Can I have your autograph?
