I started a paragraph about why I don't think Palin is the fatal error you refer to, Pastafarian (thought it was friendlier than "spaghetti man", sorry about that one), but I deleted it because I thought it would be easier to ask you to elucidate (in bullet points or whatever) why she is such a bad choice. Now, admittedly by doing so, you are inviting criticism of all your points from more than one direction, and if you don't want to open that wicket for whatever reason, I understand. Just a thought.<br><br>We are STILL what we repeatedly do. -Aristotle

Actually I am quite happy with the distance between McCain and President Bush. Having GW appear on Labor Day at the convention means fewer people will see him. Hopefully he will appear at 4 am so the rest of the nation is asleep. <br><br>
Obama was sitting in the United States Senate for years before Palin was governor. prior to being governor, she was in some position that was appointed that nobody has ever heard of. and prior to that she was a mayor of a town smaller than 10,000 people.<br><br>her state budget is ANNUALLY about what Obama manages every week or 2 (11 million dollars). her state has hundreds of thousands of fewer people than the Grand Rapids, MI metro area where i live. <br><br>she hasn't been vetted by the media as they all scrambled to tell viewers more about her today. <br><br>she is going to be a heartbeat away from being president and that president will be the oldest president we've ever had in a first term . . . and a guy who has had serious health issues.<br><br>she has zero foreign policy experience. she has <a href="http://www.salon.com/politics/war_room/">virtually no opinion about Iraq</a>.<br><br>a month ago, she was on Larry Kudlow of CNBC's "Kudlow & Co." and he asked her about the possibility of <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/08/29/sarah-palin-what-exactly_n_122514.html">becoming McCain's ticket</a> mate.<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Palin replied: "As for that VP talk all the time, I'll tell you, I still can't answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day? I'm used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we're trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question."<p><hr></blockquote><p>she doesn't even know what a Vice President does.<br><br>to top it off, <a href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26458400/">she is being investigated for ethics violations in Alaska</a>.<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>When she dismissed Alaska Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan on July 11, Palin said she wanted to take the commission in a new direction.<br><br>A week later, Monegan told NBC affiliate KTUU of Anchorage that he thought it was likely that he had been dismissed because he resisted pressure from Palin’s staff and husband to fire the trooper, who was involved in a bitter custody battle with the governor’s sister after their divorce in 2005. <p><hr></blockquote><p><a href="http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2008/07/mccainpalin_ticket_hits_iceber.html">this site</a> even notes that this scandal ensures that she won't be selected to be on a ticket with McCain. heh.<br><br>speaking of vetting, it's <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/08/29/andrea-mitchell-john-mcca_n_122517.html">being reported</a> that McCain only met with Palin 1 time prior to today. how well does even John McCain know his new running mate? from today:<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>This morning on Fox News, McCain spokeswoman Nancy Pfotenhauer was asked about the relationship between McCain and Palin. “How well do they know one another?” host Bill Hemmer asked. Pfotenhauer said:<br><br> You’re running flat into the wall of my ignorance here, Bill. I truly have no indication whatsoever the extent of a relationship that exists with the Governor of Alaska.<p><hr></blockquote><p>how did Fox News allow that one to happen? <br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>

If, after all this time -- the runup to the primaries, the primaries themselves, post-primary and convention -- you still think "we know little about Obama", then sorry to say, but you simply haven't been paying any attention ...<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...
