    I also find that "Liar Joe the Plumber" is not some random person at a rope line, but is some sort of "star" of ultra right wing talk radio. Not only that, he does not have a plumbers licence, makes about $40K, has no plan to buy his boss's plumbing business, and has owed back taxes since January 2007.

    Sarah! Go on Meet the Press! You owe to all of America! Stop being selfish! Take the plunge. Do it for the memory of our beloved Tim Russert! You owe it to all of America – Country First! Remember?

  12. What a complete moron

    I think that Tina Fey makes a better Sarah Palin than Sarah Palin does. She delivers the exact same lines with so much more punch. She also knows that she's a parody, whereas the real one doesn't have a clue....

    How anyone can think this woman is remotely competent to be near the White House, let alone in it, is mind-boggling. Call me an elitist, but I actually want a well-educated, informed, open minded individual to be the V.P. representing our country. I'll watch her on SNL when she holds an interview with a reputable reporter.

    I do not like the hatred spewing from people's mouths about Sarah Palin. She is a strong women with great vision for our country. The democrats are slinging so much at her and are not willing to accept any questions about Obama without calling it racism. So much for the Democratic party being the all inclusive party.

    McCain/Palin 08 (Yes, they will come back and win this election)

    This is appropriate I think. Give her credit – she'll have to be a good sport and will poke fun of herself. Not all of us can do that.

    On the other side of the fence, I think amusing and entertaining others is what she excels at – not leadership or sound judgment.

    Mikey,

    I just found out about all that on CNN today that "Joe the Plumber" isn't really a plumer after all. Came to find out he's the son in law of Charles Keating, the same Keating guy that McCain was involved with in a scandal back in the early 80s hmmmm. I also heard about the McCain campaign using a low stunt accusation of robocalling Obama with Ayers. McCain and Palin don't deserve to serve this country at all!

    Seriously, its not funny anymore. Why isn’t anyone seriously asking, WHO IS SARA PALIN? Americans are completely willing to elect Sara Palin to the possible highest
    office in the land, to take charge of their lives, knowing absolutely
    nothing of substance about her. This is how Hitler got into power.
    At least Senator Obama has been vetted. Believe me, he would not
    have gotten this far without the feds going over him with a fine tooth
    comb. You can’t say the same about Sara Palin. It will be too late when
    you can’t check certain books out of the library, or your daughter who’s
    pregnant from rape can’t have an abortion because fascist Palin won’t
    allow it. Americans should wake up and stop being vunerable and
    stupid in their responsability to elect a qualified person to office.
