  1. 5 weeks experience

    I think that's what she said "I've only been at this for 5 weeks".

    Let's step it up a little higher than that.

    It's not that I don't like her, but I just can't justify a vote for the GOP this time around.

    She gave more to charities than Biden and he makes more than her. I guess Joe would rather spend it at Hair Plugs for Men. hahaha

    Even though McCain Camp sucessfully neutered Gwen Ifil by a predebate attack on her credibility, we should not be fooled by Palin’s Acting/ sparring abilities (although she had her Notes with her,but isn't that Cheating?) to sucessfully weave and bob and her canny ability not to answer questions she does not like in contradiction to her also not being able to intelligently answer complex questions on the spot! It seems as if she feels the American people have no need to be given intelligent, thoughtful answers to the pressing questions of today, and that we would rather be winked at and called hockey moms and Joe Sixpacks while our economy is in ruins! We need our candidates to present truth, not lies and talking points of lies which have nothing to do with reality. We have been lied too enough in this country. We need leaders who are of high moral character and who think their word is thier bond.

    2 years? So basically since shes been running for governor? Hmmm how about before that, before she would have been publicly scrutinized.

    Another reason to like here – her incomes is like the rest of us. She is the first "real" candidate to come onto the stage in a very long time.

    It's too late now. Too little too late. Right now it's like, who cares. The only reason her returns were released so that they can try to give her a last minute make over, "she just like you". It's too late, the Obama train has left the station with it's banner in tow, "CHANGE".

    What a joy it will be when Missy Winking Palin packs up her hockey sticking, 6 packing, gun toting, schtick and goes back to Alaska. Seems like she's gonna have a lot of winking to do with questions about abuse of power, subpoenas to comply with (or go to jail) and a citizenry that has seen their governor for the joke she is.

    Good-Bye Sarah!

    What about the other years. Is Todd going to testify or is he going to defy the court order? I will be so glad when the elections are over and the Palins can go back to tabloid news. Is she going to answer any other questions from the media. She did not answer any in the debates.

    Which charities did they donate to? If it was the strange church where she was blessed to save her from "witchcraft" and give her prosperity, I'm not impressed.

    I never cared if she released her tax records or not. You couldn't pay me to vote for this clueless, unintelligent, uninformed pathological liar!
