    Right woman for the right time. This will be a woman to ride the river with. She is honest and commanding. Just what we need to help McCain run a tight ship.

    Yep, he was super successful, he should have some good advice to offer. A turncoat, pandering politician running in any direction that he thinks will be to his benefit. Give me a break!

    Whoopti Whoop for Joe who just committed political suicide tonight with his flip flop speech.I had the feeling I was watching an old Alf episode because he sounds just like the actor who played the father.The entire convention tonight took me back many years in many ways.Talk about looking at the old guard compared to the Dems convention.Is it not always out with the old and in with the new ? I sure hope so for the sake of future America.The Republicans in in a serious time warp !

    She not only met with Sen. Lieberman but she also has the entire Bush team preping her for foriegn policy and upcomming debates against Sen. Biden. So much for Sen. McCain's hopes of distancing himself from President Bush......... But of cource that was just a smoke screen anyway that McCain is hoping the American people buy........................

    Mr. King,
    The next time you see Senator Reid can you ask him a question for me? In the spirit of reaching across the aisle that your president elect professes, will you let Joe Lieberman keep his chairmanship?

    They have zip, zero, zilch in common. He's pro-choice, pro-gun-control, anti-war, worried about global warming... She's rabidly anti-abortion, NRA, an avowed global-warming skeptic (!), sending her son to Iraq...

    What on Earth could they possibly have to discuss??

    He's gone off the deep end.

    September 3, 2008 12:50 am at 12:50 am |

    They ACTUALLY met to discuss her incredible lack of experience...& so that the campaign could finally vet her! What a frickin mess!!

    If country matters more than party and if McCain truly believes this then why didn't McCain do that? I mean, McCain wasn't aloud to pick Lieberman, who was his FIRST CHOICE, as VP.

    If McCain can't make his own decisions (Conservatives said NO to Lieberman) then why would anyone pick him as President?

    He had his hand up her skirt. Did everyone see the picture of Palin in a bikini holding her rifle with Bubba in the background smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer>

    You can take the girl out the double wide but you can't take the double wide out of the girl!

    A lot of people think Al Gore made a bad choice by choosing Lieberman as his running mate, and believe that doing so cost him the Presidency. I wonder if he mentioned that to her?
