(CNN) – A leading House Democrat said Thursday John McCain's choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is a "risky" move that could ultimately prove disastrous to the Republican prospects in November.

Meanwhile, a top Senate Democrat said the pick is a "Hail Mary pass" and a "roll of the dice," in what is the initial reactions from McCain's rival party.

The more Obama slams her on her lack of experience, the more foolish he looks.
Of the 2 candidates and their VPs, the one with the least experience is Barrack Obama.

Has the man ever run anything in his life?

Hillary, Bill and Gerry Ferraro will be voting Republican. So will a lot of liberal RAT women.

The democrites are punch-drunk. They don’t have any idea how to react since they never saw this coming, so they’re babbling.

And this, my FRiends, is how you know that picking Palin is a great idea.

So, an inexperienced man at the top of the ticket is just fine, but an inexperienced woman as VP is risky and dangerous?

It's going to be fun watching gender politics explode in the RATs face on this one.

I heard Bob Beckel on Fox this morning (before Palin was even announced) saying that Dems would question her experience. I thought that was rather rich considering the two-bit hustler who the Dems nominated. Palin has executive experience wheras Obambi has...well...um...voted present...a lot.

Hey DhimmiRats, would you like some cheese with that whine?

Tee hee.

Just heard her remarks. I AM SO IMPRESSED WITH SARAH. WHAT A WOMAN.

I wonder if this will affect other Freepers like myself, WHO BEFORE TODAY, was going to stay home.

Needless to say, that is no longer the case.

I AM PSYCHED!!!

Their concern is touching.

Touching somewhere.

Wow, she knocked it out of the park. Paying props to Hillary was a stoke of genius.

The whole thing kind of got me in the ole tomater.

I like it and the crowd was going crazy.

You think it's a brilliant pick but you will have to wait and see what the rest of voting America thinks. THEY may not agree with you.

The Dems are buffoons for even daring to knock Palin as the VP choice. They keep comments up like this and all of the Democratic feminist votes will go to McCain. Somewhere a Republican strategist is smoking a well deserved cigar. Rove has passed his genes on to a good group.

I can tell they’re already scared to death by their reaction.

These people don't like women, wives and mothers, Alaskans, and small town Americans. And they have the chutzpah to say its a "risky" choice? That's damning Sarah Palin with faint praise! They knew they blew it!

Yep - shea has a lot more experience in things that matter than The Chosen One, and even a bit more executive experience that The Obnoxious One.

No way they can slam her lack of experience without getting bit big time.

Plus, she's CONSERVATIVE, smart, looks good, etc. I'm happy as a lark with this pick.
