Old McCoot picked a sweet young thing.....Sarah Palin????( you gotta wonder, how many said NO)


This is such blatant Bad judgement, Is McCoot Insane ? So Much for the Maverick...this is as bad as when he offered his wife up at the Biker Rally.... I will liveblog the announcement in the thread? She has only been Governor 18 Monthes ? What the hell?? Former Beauty Queen ?? Mom of five- she just had a Down Syndrome Baby 5 monthes ago- WHO will be caring for the Special Needs Baby ? Should this Woman be the VP choice- she has NO Appropriate Experience for Leading Our Country. Think about this Folks, she would be responsible for our safety ??? Folks this is a Train Wreck ?

Can she carry the Gun Toting Christian Women ? ( Cuz sorry- the Military Repugs and the Redneck Repugs, even the Conservative Repugs are not going to support this ...)

And by the way she is being investigated for Possible Violations of her Position as Governor,before that she was a mayor of a small town of less than 9000 people ( yes, seriously). She belongs to the NRA, was a Beauty Queen ( who was disqualified for cheating) and then she also has been on the PTA, and is a mother of 5. ( Including a 5 month old Special Needs Baby with Downs Syndrome).I am sorry but she is not qualified for Head Dog Catcher, much less VEEP.

Bill Burton Issued a Statement from the Obama Campaign:
Barack Obama Campaign Spokesman Bill Burton responds to John McCain's choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate:

"Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain's commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush's failed economic policies -- that's not the change we need, it's just more of the same."

    NOW there are little cheerleaders on stage- they don't even have pom-poms.....they are throwing tshirts to the audience...

    McCain could not even win a highschool presidency...

    Now there is a tape of country music playing ( the tape is scratchy....like an 8 Track that was found at roadside...)

    ( they keep showing the mccain crowd..they can 't even get a WAVE going.)

    Meanwhile I have to say- what an insult to women and also to Hillary....this is a woman that has NO appropriate experience...

    I am sorry Repugs in the South and Texas and Maine are going to be like What the Hell???

    So is this ALL about ANWAR ??? is this he chose a woman 30 years younger - so the Gender was right..and they WANT that Drilling....the oil ...

    E ~ I just posted more details on my blog. Not only is she a mother of 5, but the youngest was born in April 2008 & has Down's syndrome. She went to work 3 days after giving birth! Sorry but that baby is going to need special attention.

    Also her political experience is 6 years as mayor of tine Wasilla, population 5469. Average income $48,226.
    Hell- that is pocket change for McGramps.

    I see this as the republs throwing in the towel on this election.

    Also- the repubs are thinks of postponing the convention because a potential monster Hurricane is headed to the Gulf.
    All the freaking repubs will be out there in Noreaster' rain gear with buckets, personally bailing the water. Maybe bring in a yacht to help transport people???
    Babs can bring cake for them to eat.

    Ohhh.... I am snarky this morning.

    Fran said...

    apparently the coffee has not reached my fingertips yet.

    Tiny Wasilla- population 5469

    McCain himself said earlier how important his choice for VP is because he would be the oldest president.

    So he picks this totally inexperienced person with so many young kids- and a special needs infant to fit that bill?

    This wins medals for ***CRAZY***

    This choice screams.... I've changed my mind, I don't want to be elected.

    ahhh- no flag pin

    enigma4ever said...

    OMG...LOOOK at Cindy- SHE HAS HAD MORE MORE FACE WORK...( I got 2 calls saying LOOK)

    It's a weak ticket guys.

    D.K. Raed said...

    guess Kay Bailey Hutchinson and Liddy Dole told him to piss off. THIS is supposed to attract the Hillary Holdouts? GAAAAAGGG!!!

    enigma4ever said...

    Okay she has entered the NUTTER Arena- cue the sweeping Bountiful Movie Soundtrack Music...
    Now she is speaking..she is squeaky...wearing a black suit- Mrs McCain...

    she is wearing her flag pin....
    ( her family is there...even her new baby with Downs Syndrome..Hubby there Todd, alaska fisherman..high school sweeties....Trak is in the army - her son ( oh lordy...)...McCain looks lost...on sept 11th is going to Iraq..( oh my god my cannon fodder- and he leaves on sept 11th...) , Bristol, Willow, Song Trig from April ....he is not even 6 monthes old... and shit she does not even mention that he is a special needs baby...)

    Okay I have to say do look at Cindy- she definently went and got face work...DID anyone see photos of her trip to Georgia ????

    She was on the Ethics Panel for the Oil and Gas Companies ( Well then how could she not know about Teddy and the VECO mess ??)

    HelenWheels said...

    Holy shit I can't believe McLame did this!!

    What I am cringing about is all the misogyny we are going to be subjected to because of this pick. At Shakesville she already reported Palin being called a bimbo on some news show.

    And then they are going to start comparing her to Hillary just because they are both women, even though Hillary is a political powerhouse and in no way comparable to Gov. Palin.

    I wonder what the racist, women-hating rednecks that make up a huge portion of McLame's base are going to think about his selecting a woman?

    My mind is officially boggled, but I am also more hopeful for Obama now.

    enigma4ever said...

    Hey Helen...
    this is so strange...is it about her being a woman? or the oil in Alaska... she is not even in the same league as Hillary...

    this is the strangest pick- I think that McCain and the repugs think all they need was a " woman" ???

    Okay more creepy ass music...

    enigma4ever said...

    NOTE the only Uniforms he could get in the audience- NO military- JUST Boy Scouts..

    Looka t Cindy - she did have face work!!

    Substitute Teacher said...

    Hey, maybe the Republican have decided they don't WANT to win the Oval Office this time around. Bush is leaving such a horrendous mess, maybe they would rather just hand it off to the Democrats for them to try to clean up and be blamed for shortfalls.

    After all, with the economy is the crapper, global warming neglected by the Bushies, a failed energy policy, everyone in the world hating us because of the neocon foreign policy, why not turn it over the to Dems so they can be blamed for all the fallout.

    Christopher said...

    Palin, a rightwing conservative mother of five, has a strong anti-abortion record, is vehemently antigay, and is an NRA member.

    The former mayor of Wasilla, Alaska — a tiny town of 6,500, is a generation younger than two of McCain’s seven children from his first marriage.

    Sarah Palin — who bears an uncanny resemblence to Marie Osmond, was a runner-up in the Miss Alaska pageant but she was disqualified for breaking the pagent rules by wearing a two-piece swimsuit.

    This. Is. A. Fucking. Joke!

    enigma4ever said...

    Chris:::

    unreal...amazing...

    Substitute teacher::
    maybe you are right- I am stunned..I still think this was the "pick" because everyone turned him down...that is my only theory...

    hmm, MSM is admitting there might be Recognition problem...

    enigma4ever said...

    so this is the get the Prolife Guntoting Christian Mama Vote ????

    She could not lead this country- was she even vetted ???

    the Repug Leaders are saying she has more experience than Biden and Obama ? really REALLY??

    Shit I am more qualified..

    annie said...

    being staunchly pro-life cancels out anything positive about her. what a joke!

    enigma4ever said...

    Okay as a Mom and a Nurse, I am so sickened by her- she has a Special Needs baby- that she did not mention and she should have- that baby is not even 6 monthes old and will need her....and instead she will be campaigning...WHO will be taking care of this Baby???? her daughters ? WHO???

    Christopher said...

    One of my longtime readers said her priorities should be caring for her young child with Downs Syndrome and not chasing the vice presidency.

    It will be interesting to see if the PUMA kooks flock to the Old Coot now.

    enigma4ever said...

    Chris:::

    As a Mom I agree with your longtime reader - I am disgusted...that baby needs her..

    Christopher said...

    As a Mom I agree with your longtime reader - I am disgusted...that baby needs her..

    Apparently, the Old Coot needs her more.

    Don't cha' just love Republican family values???

    Fran said...

    Guns n lots of babies, no experience

    but she comes from an OIL state & just signed off on the biggest Natural Gas deal that will take 10 years to complete.

    Resource exploitation.....tres republican!

    Fran said...

    Let's hope McCain does not refer to her as his "Vice Cunt", that would be bad.

    Christopher said...

    Sarah Palin was disqualified from the Miss Alaska Pageant because she broke the pageant rules and wore a two-piece swimming suit to curry favor with the horny, straight male judges.

    She's a real piece of work -- NOT!

    HelenWheels said...

    We have been handed the election on a silver platter.

    UNLESS THE FIX IS IN!!

    I don't know how they can recover from this.

    Yes, Enigma you are more qualified than her. She was a mayor of a town of only 6500. That's it. And they think Hillary's base will vote for THAT? I kinda doubt it. Only the ones that were already rethug will.

    enigma4ever said...

    a neighbor said something much ruder while walking the dog...
    "VP = the Vagina Pick"....

    and he was not being rude..
    he just pointed out it shows that McCain thinks that Hillary people wanted A WOMAN_ ANY WOMAN...in a way it shows how McCAin also does not respect Hillary or Women of this country AT ALL....

    I am going to ask again- did anyone see Cindy- she has had more Face Work done- probally went to one of those Black Sea Spas...

    D.K. Raed said...

    The way the audience is clapping their brains out seems like they can't wait to go grab their bibles and bless an ANWR pipeline.

    I'm sorry to be so blunt (though it's hard to top Fran above with Vice Cunt), but this is a real insult to the Hillary Holdouts and to moderate repub women. It's like the repubs are so lame, they think anyone with a vagina is qualified.

    enigma4ever said...

    This is so disgusting...

    she is not a real woman...so this is going to come down to getting REAL Women to vote for Obama...the Christian Right Women will be out in force now...urgh


    If I hear the Maverick word more I am going to throw up...

    enigma4ever said...

    DK- you said exactly what my neighbor said ...you nailed it...

    D.K. Raed said...

    oops, E, we crossed on the va-jay-jay issue.

    I didn't see any close-ups of Cindy. Though I'm really starting to wonder about her "slight injury caused by an overzealous fan". Seems like a long time to be in a cast. I saw no pics of her time in Georgia. Maybe she was with some plastic surgeon in Atlanta.

    Christopher said...

    Some woman is on MSNBC right now chortling about Sarah Palin being qualified to be vice president because she's a former PTA leader.

    This is like an episode of SNL.

    enigma4ever said...

    So let me get this straight- PTA Leader and Cheerleading and Beauty Experience ALL qualify her For VEEP ????


    this is such a joke...

    Christopher said...

    I think she looks like a transvestite.

    Sorry, to all the really fabulous transvestites out there keeping it real.

    HelenWheels said...

    I couldn't bear to watch any GOP gathering so I'm relying on you guys (plus I'm actually trying to work - so hard today!)

    If anything, I think this should backfire. What McLame is doing is equating this inexperienced uber-conservative with Hillary, who is a POWERFUL politician with a long history and tons of experience. It's like a slap in the face to all women.

    If the PUMA women now vote for McLame after such an egregious and obvious insult to Hillary, they need their heads examined (not that they already didn't).

    D.K. Raed said...

    The men probably won't feel comfortable saying this, so I will wade in. She has 4 beautiful children. She got PG again in her 40's. Knowing at that age she was at higher risk for all sorts of things, like Downs, she went ahead with it. At some point, fetal testing would've proven Downs. She went ahead with it. When the baby was born, she was back on the job in 3-days, leaving the baby for others to care for.

    Having a Downs cousin, I've seen how much special care they need. It's like she just ignored the whole issue, like oh, someone else will take care of things, lalalala. Does this sound responsible? Aren't the repubs always calling dems the irresponsible party?

    And no I'm not advocating eugenics. It's just in this case, she had a choice, she made it, but she expects others to handle it afterwards. I can also say from experience, the older daughter will probably never have children. Another consequence of a (can I say, selfish & ambitious?) mother.

    HelenWheels said...

    It's disgusting. I bet the Obama campaign is in shock, being handed such an amazing gift!

    enigma4ever said...

    I too worry about this baby- the first few years with a Down Syndrome baby they need much care...MUCH...WHO is caring for this poor baby...

    As a mom I have NO respect for her- and yes, ever since I heard she went back to work on day 3 after having this very special baby...and she did not even mention him at this rally....( except his name,...)

    Fran said...

    Clearly, this is the republican party's way of calling it quits. Come on! She is an absoulte joke of a candidate. They want out.

    McCain himself stated a while back how he KNOWS how important his VP choice is because of his age.

    This is his way of deciding to opt out.
    Repubs would not traditionally support a Woman in the Executive branch- but to choose one with absolutely no Federal or Foreign experience in a time when we have huge foreign issues and problems and a massive Federal Domestic meltdown of the economy... to choose someone with a BA in journalism & small towm mayoral experience, says he wants out.

    He passed over all these much more qualified republicans:

    Sam Brownback - Senior U.S. Senator from Kansas, 2008 presidential candidate
    Richard Burr - Junior U.S. Senator from North Carolina
    Tom Coburn - Junior U.S. Senator from Oklahoma
    Jim DeMint - Junior U.S. Senator from South Carolina
    Lindsey Graham - Senior U.S. Senator from South Carolina
    Chuck Grassley - Senior U.S. Senator from Iowa
    Olympia Snowe - Senior U.S. Senator from Maine
    John E. Sununu - Junior U.S. Senator from New Hampshire
    John Thune - Junior U.S. Senator from South Dakota, endorsed McCain
    Joseph Lieberman - Junior U.S. Senator

    They pretty much handed the election to Obama.

    enigma4ever said...

    Fran- you are right...

    SO let's get this straight.....McCain is going for the White Christian Gun Toting Keep "M Preggers and barefoot Vote ? Are we talking Red Neck ? are we talking Klan ? WHO does this help ? WHO would tell him to pick this Woman?
    Did Bush and Rove tell him to pick her cuz of the Drilling???

    OR Is this a sign that 72 year old McCain has lost his damn mind ???

    HelenWheels said...

    This just in: She's a creationist! Got it off Mark Crispin Miller's blog in my sidebar... holy shit!

    HelenWheels said...

    I agree with Fran. They've thrown in the towel.

    enigma4ever said...

    Here we go from Rump Roast :::
    How long do you think it will take America to get to “know” Sarah Palin?

    And how many times will this Alaskan be referred to as “exotic”?

    p.s. Hillary Clinton supporters, John McCain would like you to notice that his anti-choice, Pat-Buchanan-lovin’ VP pick has a “vagina.” Please make a note of that.

    enigma4ever said...

    Okay NOW a Quote from Shakes Sis
    "McCain's selection of Palin is opportunistic, disingenuous, cynical, and an egregious insult to women in that it suggests women are: A) interchangeable; B) monolithic; and C) too unsophisticated to cast a vote based on issues."

    As a woman- ANY woman should be offended by this"selection"...

    So On CNN - they keep saying that VP Choice does not matter much....

    OKAY NOTE TO CNN- YES VEEP DOES MATTER !!! WHY - OH HOW ABOUT BECAUSE OF DICK CHENEY !!!!

    Fran said...

    I also think the McCains were under scrutiny of their home ownership. It was revealed they have 9 homes-- but never revealed how many more non-home income properties they owned & Baroness Cindy refused to disclose her income. They probably thought- Holy Crap! If people are freaking out about 9 homes, what will happen if they really find out how many more income properties we have? Plus there would be pressure for them to disclose income-- all other presidents have... and eventually their tax papers would be made public. Maybe they decided they did not need to add the white house to their collection of homes after all.

    Plus a gulf coast hurricane hitting during their convention would ice this cake.
    Nobody will forget the Katrina double disaster.
    The levy failures & the Bush/FEMA failures.
    A reminder of just how catastrophic this regime is.

    Plus the economic dominoes are just beginning to fall. We have seen the tip of the iceberg.

    This VP choice = McCains farewell.

    Buh Bye John

    Sewmouse said...

    Kind of makes you wonder if the "stragerty" is to USE a woman as VP candidate, who after the election will need to "resign" to spend more time with her delicate infant... Opening the door for a less palatable replacement?

    enigma4ever said...

    Hey Fran::
    Gustav gained speed over night- and should hit the Coast by Monday night- no I am not kidding- I have it and the maps posted below with the time on them....

    The Cone sadly does have NOLA in it site- the Cone of Irony....sad....

    Now about the Beer Baroness and her homes- and the HELP- supposedly she only spends 253,000 on the HELP ( about the same as she spends on Charities) now with atleast 10 Residences that means she spends LESS than 15,000 per residence - DO they use Immigrant HELP ???? ( some reputable Papers and Mags are investigating...)

    I have no idea WHAT they are thinking .... this must be all WHAT - okay 6-6 pointed out even the Klan would not want a woman that close to the Oval Office...she was mayor of a small town ????

    they were just desperate to put a chick on the ticket????what the hell..

    enigma4ever said...

    Ahhhh Sewmouse- you are so wise..NOW THAT is a thought...

    She went back to work after 3 days after having this very special baby- I don't think she would ....but who knows..

    Christopher said...

    Look, everyone knows I'm gay and I don't have children. Not that being gay disqualifies me from having kids but, I'm just saying.

    In any event, if I had a child born with Downs Syndrome, the last thing I would do is take a job that required me to travel, work long hours or relocate.

    Our 11 year old Lab, Ginger, is getting older now and I refuse to board her so that we can hope on the plane and travel for vacation. I refuse to do it. If Ginger can't go with us in my SUV, I ain't going.

    So is Miss Thang dragging that poor kid with her 5,000 miles to Washington DC?

    enigma4ever said...

    Chris::
    and what you just said tells me you are a Wonderful Dad...a Responsible Parent....and shit - Downs Syndrome babies come with slew of problems- including Heart Problems, hearing, and renal...etc etc...they are very complicated in their care needs esp. the first few years with PT/OT and developmentally they need Alot of extra muscle work, and language building....

    ( I had a Special Needs Premie and worked PEDS- the first year with that kind of baby is Labor Intensive- hell- I was lucky if I got to pee and have a shower by Noon...there was NO traveling..at all)

    Christopher said...

    Enigma,

    Thanks.

    You took care of a child like hers so you know all too well.

    Hey, guess what? Miss Thang is under investigation! I've got the Anchorage paper link that broke the story.

    They didn't vet McCain's Quayle too well.

    I smell an Obama LANDSLIDE!

    Hooooooooooo Wooooooooooooo!

    Human said...

    What a freaky choice. The post and comments busted me up. I must say though just because there is a higher risk for a Downs baby at such an age, it does not mean she knew it. We didn't know about that stat when we decided to have a baby. We didn't know so many things. Like one does not give honey to a baby under age 1. And to say "I wouldn't" or "I would" when talking about what one would do if they had a kid with or without Downs is not wise. I threw away all my preconcieved notions about Parenthood ...oh about an hour after we brought Lil Joe home.
    Nuttin personal. just sayin...

    Mrs. Dole would of been their best choice. It's as if they just don't care. Like they haven't for 8 years. Makes this 1 wonder....

    Peace.

    enigma4ever said...

    HUman::
    I agree that parenting is so full of shocks and surprises...I am not trying to judge- but as a mom and a nurse I have grave concerns about HOW will she care for this special needs infant that is only 5 monthes old...this baby needs her - as a mother...it is hard enough being Gov and she went back to work after 3 days off...and knowing that this baby was special...And she did find out while pregnant that the baby had Downs Syndrome....it is about being a parent.... 5 Month old Downs baby has problems..mostly muscle issues-breathing- suck coordination, they usually eat every 4 hours...and need alot of care, and yes, much of their early care is similiar to that of Premie Care...

    I had a Special Needs Infant...I know what I am saying....it is heart wrenching and very very time consuming...I am very worried about this baby- she is already a mom of 4 and the gov job that is ALOT to juggle....

    as a nurse and a mom..sorry- but I gotta ask about this poor baby...Someone should...I hope that makes sense- read above what I wrote to Chris...

    ( hell any new babe and being in one's 40's...it is hard work..)

    About WHY she was the best choice- I think it is all about wanting the Drilling in Alaska...

    Honey, you shouldn't rely on left wing reports for all your news... as a woman, as a Christian, and as a conservative, I am thrilled with his choice, as is every moderate (and staunch) conservative I have spoken with today. Just cuz you wish it weren't so doesn't make it the case.

    enigma4ever said...

    Well Yellow::
    I get my news from plenty of reliable sources..I am sure as you paint WHO you are that you are thrilled...This has nothing to do with "wishes"...Seriously as an American I think that McCain showed an incredible lack of judgement...Sadly if he was looking for a REAL woman Candidate- there were plenty of Real Choices in his own party....The VEEP job is an important Job- and PTA and Beauty Queen Credentials don't keep OUR Country safe.She clearly lacks the Credentials...on any level.

    Senator Obama gave an amazing speech last that explained that ALL levels of America are hurting on so many levels...and WHAT his plans are to repair our Broken Country. Bush and his cronies, including his VEEP= Dick Cheney ran a Criminal Titannical Regime and have run OUR Country into the Ground.... We Need Real Candidates with Experience ProblemSolving and With Real Solutions....

    A Candidate should be more than a Bumper Sticker and a Pretty face.. it 's a joke...He may as well have picked the Beer Baroness herself...

    Alaska and Hawaii both have their own time zones. Cokie does have reason to know roughly where Alaska is.

    The Vice President is a heartbeat away from becoming President, so to choose someone with not one hour's worth of experience on national issues is a dangerous choice.

    If John McCain thought that choosing Sarah Palin would attract Hillary Clinton voters, he is badly mistaken.

    The only similarity between her and Hillary Clinton is that they are both women. On the issues, they could not be further apart.

    Senator McCain had so many other options if he wanted to put a woman on his ticket, such as Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison or Senator Olympia Snowe -- they would have been an appropriate choice compared to this dangerous choice.

    In addition, Sarah Palin is under investigation by the Alaska state legislature which makes this more incomprehensible.

    Yeah...and god forbid is there any connections to teddy stevens or don young ? or VECO? sorry gotta ask...

    Yeah..misuse/ abuse of office- she is coming from a state ripe with corruption..and then Teddy's trial starts in mere weeks...this is just going to spotlight it more....

    I linked some great NW and Alaska Blogs that are also working the Palin story and sharing the scoop on her- including the MUDFLATS blog...

    Shuster is on tonight- talking about the Palin story - doing a good job...

    She has only met McCain once or twice- they don't even know each other ???

    Shuster is covering all this...

    The story behind the Palin surprise

    Jonathan Martin Fri Aug 29, 6:24 PM ET

    John McCain on Friday announced a running mate whom he met only six months ago and with whom he spoke just once on the phone about the position before offering it in person earlier this week.

    McCain’s first encounter with Sarah Palin came at a Washington meeting of the National Governors Association in February, according to a campaign-provided reconstruction of how the little-known Alaska governor was thrust into the national spotlight. The two discussed the position by phone on Sunday before McCain invited Palin and her husband to Arizona to formally make the offer. McCain, joined by his wife, Cindy, did just that Thursday morning at their home near Sedona, Ariz.

    By picking somebody he and most Americans barely know — an out-of-the-blue decision that sent shock waves of disbelief through the political world and still has jaws agape — McCain has taken a considerable gamble.


    HE's not a maverick. He's suicidal.


    LOL!!!!

    he is clearly off his rocker...( at which house I have no idea..)

    And meanwhile he still led on Willard and Pawlenty...

    MOre Rove: apparently, Rove out and out TOLD MCLame he could NOT nominate LIEberman. So I think this is all again more TurbBlossom driven.

    WTF are they up to? So fucked up...

    enigma4ever said...

    I think it was Bush driven- read my top post..about Bush's visit to Alaska before he went to Bejjing...

    I hear you. I don't think anybody from the Sick far Right really cares about children any ways. If we had learned that Joseph was Downs invitro, we would still have had him. We did not know that he had a 20% of being a Downs baby because of his Mother's age. Everybody has their own trail.

    My time is up at the Library. I'll catch up on the later Palin posts you made.
    Peace.

    Please Human,...
    know I am not trying to be hard on anyone or question anyone' s trials or parenting sitauation..I just hope we are told the truth about this baby..there are rumors in alaska that they baby is her daughters..

    and also that he is cared for while she campaigns...campaigning is a FT job even with 4 kids...but a special needs baby is that- special and requires alot of care...

    and I worry the repugs in their sick twisted brains came up with the let's put a "Madonna" on the ticket...as a way to fix everything....and it is to get the evangelical women to vote for johnny....

    The more I hear about her the more concerned I get. I heard a rumor that her daughter was pregnant and she was hiding it.
    That makes sense to another story I heard that her water broke in Texas and she flew home to give birth. Now it makes more sense when you hear that baby is her daughters. No wonder she was back on the trail in three days!

    HelenWheels said...

    Well if this does break into MSM news, all Palin would have to do to stop any conjecture would be DNA tests, right? That is, if the baby is hers. The fact that there are no preg pics is very suspicious. In this day and age? I don't buy it.

    Then you have to ask: HOw in the HELL could McLAME not know? This would be a mega-gaffe. I mean MEGA!

    an average patriot said...

    that's a new chant for Paling I mean McPaling no Pailing. Sounds like a crock of shit to Me! DNA DNA DNA DNA!

    enigma4ever said...

    Ahhh Patriot:::
    I am not a CSI expert- if it is her daughters- the DNA would match her I think...but more to the point that we are being lied to again - family values...if it is her daughters's don't lie about it...tell the truth..

    I am just sick of being lied to ...

    HelenWheels said...

    Have you guys been keeping track of all the raids on houses of "potential protesters" in Minneapolis? OMG I am so freaked out! Go to my blog, I've linked to Salon, they are all over it!!

    The police in S.W.A.T. gear and machine guns have busted into peoples' homes without warrants, tied them up and took their computers and other stuff!! WITHOUT WARRANTS! And they terrorized the people and tied them up on the floor!

    an average patriot said...

    Helen
    I haven't heard about the raids on their houses but I did post a link on the raid of their headquarters at gunpoint. Bastards, police State!
    Enigma
    The first thing I heard about her was her ability to lie and twist arms and fire to get her way using her office. Sounds like more of the same to me and what she wants is not good for us espe4cially women!

    enigma4ever said...

    Patriot::
    and Helen:
    I did post about the raids up above ( C&L are on it too)...

    and about Palin- I think that is what you meant about the truth twisting...I am not thrilled with her...mostly because she holds religous beliefs that effect her decisions ( ie. Roe v Wade etc....creationism....polar bears...drilling etc etc..)
