    They have moved out of Michigan. I think the McCain Campaign should pack up and move to Alaska.

  4. Had enough of the bs yet?

    I'd like to know the charities the Palin's donated to. Was it that outfit that is for Alaska succeeding from the Union? Was it donations to the outfit that is hateful toward Israel that we can see the blurb about on Utube? I think it's about time the Palin's are totally investigated by the FBI. They remind me of the people the FBI hunted down at Ruby Ridge and Waco. I'm also very fed up with all this kid glove, politically correct crapfest that's only screwing the American public out of honest talk. HONEST talk, not a whole lot of lying or spin.

    Deb – you are what McCain wants and can have. He wants all dumb American such as yourself to vote for his ticket. It is funny that once Rev. Wright made his statements Obama cut tides with the guy, because Obama saw the true side of him. Why don't you see the true side of the Republican. It is funny that he votes 90% of the time of what Bush voted for, and he decides he wants to distance himself from him when he starts running for president. Are you kidding me!!!!!

    If I had been Gwen Ifill, I would not have allowed Sarah to ignore my questions. It was an insult to the process of the debate and the voters.

    This is the kind of administration John will have. He'll ignore the American people and say he's doing everything for the American people, but it will actually be for himself.

    John is a snake. Only a snake would crawl on his belly to leave a woman who had just been in an accident and three kids. Cindy Lou is also a snake, because only a snake would have an affair with a married man, and retell the story on national television, about when they first "met", or "cheated" in my book.

    She's in way over her head, and John is not exactly a sane man.

    I agree with you Deb, let's hope that Wright doesn't end up on the Supreme Court!

    Oh, not to worry, for McCain will be our next President!!!

    Weeee need some more years of tax returns from this untrustworthy person. Just as she gave rehearsed answers to questions that she just simply couldn't answer.

    Cheryl wrote, "..one day you'll wake up and the GREAT United States will be something totally different and not in a good way!"

    She is right...only that day occurred back in November of 2000 when we chose a moron and his nazi sidekick to lead the free world.

    How could it be only 36K – when they both make over 100K together – almost 250K combined.... My combined incomve is 80K and we paid well over 28K in taxes – Doesn't seem right ? What about all the other years that are supposed to be disclosed. What about Cindy McCain? I'd like to see their numbers -

    STOP HATING ON OBAMA!!! HE IS WHO I WANT FOR PRESIDENT!! HE SEEMS CALM AND HAS A PLAN FOR THE COUNTRY. TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, I FEEL SOME REPUBLICANS ARE ABSOLUTELY STUPID. HOW CAN THIS WOMAN BE SO QUALIFIED? SHE SHOWS UP AND DO A REHEARSED DEBATE, THAT DOESN'T MAKE HER QUALIFIED. WAKE UP AMERICA!!! MY GOODNESS. LET'S NOT BE FOOLISH. OTHER COUNTRIES ARE WATCHING US AND THEY ARE PROBABLY LAUGHING THEIR FACES OFF AT THIS COUNTRY.

    OK Cheryl,
    If CNN wants to report about voter fraud, what about the the voter fraud from FL and in Michigan that came from the RNC? It's called vote caging and the rethugs are trying to make sure democrats get turned away at the polls.

    I love all the McCain supporters that call Obama supporters whiners. Umm, have you been listening to McCain lately???? He does nothing but whine.

    Obama is beating me in the polls because "life isn't fair"...

    Stop picking on Sarah because she is a girl...

    Poor me, poor me. I was "destined" to be president but the American people just won't cooperate! Wah, wah, wah!

    They did....NOT.... include the per diem in their returns. Also, they just submitted the 2007 return on Sept 3rd., 2008.

    CPA sites I've read say they should include the per diem $17,000 they took.

    Also, aren't Christians supposed to tithe? Give 10% to charity?

    Not even close.
