    This was a joke last night. Everyone spoke negative. There was nothing about the economy, nothing.

    At least something fruitful wasa result of the filthy bunch of bigots and racists. Maybe you should drop the "coded" red sheets and just go back to the original white ones.

    I think its funny that republicans are casting now casting their candidate...oops vice-candidate into the messiah role. Please chew on this:
    —Palin has raised taxes many times and took her beautiful little Alaskan town from a balanced budget to 22 million in debt. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0808/12987.html
    —She didn’t build the bridge to nowhere but she sure took its money, and asked for more. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2008154532_webpalin02m.html
    —She actually implemented a windfall profit tax exactly as senator Obama suggested a couple months ago… and look how the reds chastised him for it. http://thinkprogress.org/wonkroom/2008/08/30/palin-raised-taxes-on-oil-company-profits-to-give-citizens-an-equitable-share-will-mccain/
    –Yes her family is off limits, and it appears she wants to put all family off limits by cutting funds for, ironically, teen moms http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Palin_cut_1.1_million_from_funding_0902.html

    I am another proud Obama donor! After last night's divisive, hateful speech I am doing all that I can to ensure that these right-wing nut cases are not given the stewardship of our beautiful country.

    YES WE CAN!!

    PUMAs are so yesterday. There are fewer real PUMAs than residents of Wasilla. You deserve each other.

    Real Hillary supporters are supporting Obama. They know who shares their values.
