Yeah, lets be honest. Last week she claimed she was ready to not only be VP but also president.

Last night she admitted she's only been at this for 5 weeks.

HAHAHAHAHA!

In America, it takes 30+ weeks to pass first grade, but only a five week training course is required to become President.

It is the dumbing of America. For some bizarre reason many people DO NOT WANT a president that is smarter than they are. WHY? I don't know.

I know that I want:
MY DOCTOR
MY DENTIST
MY ATTORNEY
MY PILOT
MY ACCOUNTANT
MY PRESIDENT

to all be SMARTER than I am. Who wants a STUPID president???? Or a STUPID vice president?

Stevens is just the latest in a long and proud lineage of Republicans accepting bribes, particularly from defense and oil contractors.

The undisputed champion of Congressional corruption is Randy “Duke” Cunningham. The California congressman pled guilty to conspiracy and tax evasion in November 2005 after accepting millions in bribes, including cars, prostitutes, and trips in private jets. Cunningham earned the gifts by pressing more than $150 million in defense contracts. That kind of corruption takes a special kind of person.

Former House Republican majority leader Tom DeLay employed a multi-pronged approach to scumbagism; he was indicted for laundering federal campaign contributions and also took bribes from a much bigger criminal, Jack Abramoff. DeLay killed bills to help clients of Abramoff’s all-Republican lobbying firm. One of the most hypocritical incidents was the blocking of legislation that would have banned sex shops and sweatshops in the U.S. territory of the Northern Mariana Islands, in return for an Abramoff-funded family vacation there.

Human rights activists testified that the largely immigrant population was working 12-hour days for half of U.S. minimum wage and was kept behind barbed wire in shacks. DeLay, a devout Christian, called the island “a perfect petri dish of capitalism.”

Abramoff’s commitment to corruption seemed to know no bounds, and his reach touched many other heavy political players. Among them, former Ohio congressman and chairman of the House Administration Committee, Bob “Freedom Fries” Ney. Like Abramoff’s many other legislative puppets, Ney received all the same lavish gifts: expensive dinners, parties at the MCI skybox, and a $100,000 golf outing in Scotland.

Abramoff’s connection in the Senate was Conrad Burns of Montana, also the former chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on the Interior. “Every appropriation we wanted from Sen. Conrad Burns’ Committee, we got,” Abramoff told Vanity Fair in 2006. Burns received around $150,000 for his efforts. You may be thinking that these Republicans are incredibly easy to buy. But not everything in their culture of corruption is about money. A lot is about sex, too.

Idaho Sen. Larry Craig sputtered a number of weak defenses for his alleged attempt at a homosexual bathroom romp with an undercover police officer in the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport. After initially pleading guilty, Craig said he only did so under pressure from an Idaho newspaper. Craig helped enact the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” military policy, opposed gay marriage, and opposed a ban on discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Any questions?
yea ! sara? or john? I DOnt see either of their names once? or the price of milk??

Touche!

Palin is an elitist and it is well demonstrated with her favoritism for the bailout.

When I meant "on paper", I am referring to governing small towns and trying to fake being a small government conservative. Just another RINO neo-con who hides her big gubmint ambitions.
