    i wonder why didn't sarah palin asked the "great people of north carolina" to go vote early as their one-stop polling places are open from now til november 1st.

    could it be that the mccain campaign is planning to question and request invalid all early ballots in nc (as they already done in other states), and if they do tell people to vote early, the republican votes be void as well?

    tina fey will be great as usual. lock palin in the toilet so she doesn't try to steal the light and wink her way out of the skit.

    If the McCain Camp is smart, when the SNL show is over and they get ready to leave they will take Tina Fey and leave Six-pack Sarah. Tina Fay will make a better VP.

    Sarah is great! Obama and Biden are boring. Fact is, Palin is far more qualified than either Obama or Biden to be US President. Palin has been elected to and successfully served as an elected executive leader of a city and a state. Something neither Obama nor Biden have done. Obama is like Nixon, trying to cover up his abuse of power on the Board he served on with unrepentant terrorist Ayers. Both McCain and Palin are proven bipartisan leaders. Obama and Biden are two of the most partisan Senators in the US. The questions regarding Obama's relationships with unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers (who tried to murder people) are valid issues, not negative politics.

  5. Sarah Outdraws Obama Big Time

    What a woman. It's really Obama vs. Sarah Palin, not McCain.

    Sarah outdrew Obama by 10 million viewers in her debate. She also drew 60,000 to hear her in Orlando and 45,000 in Virginia last week.
    Further she outdrew Biden in his own home town of Scranton. Shades of Gore losing Tenn.

    Finally Sarah is so much more accomplished than her critics. Mayor, Governor with the highest approval rating in the U.S., Member Alaska Energy and Conservation Board and all by the age of 44 and all while raising 5 kids.

  6. Sarah Moves The Needle

    Sarah Palin is the only candidate that moves the needle on the Nielsen ratings.

    10 million more people watched her debate than any of the Obama/McCain debates.

    When she was on Fox with Sean Hannity she drew 3 times the audience that was watching Larry King and Rachel (the dike) Madow.

    And when she goes on SNL, they'll break all TV viewing records for the show.

    Has anyone else noticed that Joe the Plumber did more interviews than Palin?

    Look at the facts. Palin has more experience than Obama. This is why Obama could not answer the question in debate #3 about Palin as President someday. He could not answer the question. She has more on him.

    I love reading all the “intellectual” left comments. Why is it all the open-minded liberals suddenly call you names, grab all their toys and run out of the sandbox when they find they cannot win an argument?

    If she's as talented a comedian as she is a politician SNL rating will fall faster than the market crash

  15. NV for Obama/Biden

    I an soooooo dissapointed in SNL – I will NOT be watching the show on Saturday Night – I am just flabergasted that there are people out there that think she is worthy of the second highest office in this country – she is NO role model for me or my daughter – she has divided this country and made a mockery of democrocy – she is a scary, scary person! Shame on you SNL !!!!!
