“CHANGE” is “risky”. So is “audacity”.

My only concern now is how she’ll do against Biden at the debates.

Call me crazy, but I think she's the best choice to go against Biden in a debate.

This lady is the ONLY one on both tickets that has EXCECUTIVE experience!

AND having many Alaska snowbirds that winter around here..they have said that this is one lady you dont wanna fool with.

Let Biden start with his crap and he’ll find out that this lady governs the state that is the closest to Russia and has to be on the cutting edge of military issues because of it.

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.

Says you. Get a life, we just elected McCain/Palin to the Presidency.

Speaking as a former smug liberal atheist (are there any other kinds?), I’m thrilled. Social conservativism is a woman-friendly philosophy. Social liberalism throws women (and their children, born or unborn) to the wolves. She will help spread that message to families everywhere.

Alll she will have to do is compliment Sen. Biden about what a thought provoking statement he just made — and then add with a question — “who was that that said that before?”

What caught my attention was the crowd chanting USA-USA-USA and not Obama-Obama.

The comments at the end of this story are pitiful. One guy even suggested that there was a connection between Palin's selection and the fact that her husband was an employee of BP. Heck, at least he works at an honest job. What does Michelle Obama do again?

The Rats are truly in a tizz over McCain's piece of brilliance this morning.

I am sorry but I have to get this out. Dems are all about FEELINGS: goosie loosen gushy make me cry make me have the big “O” kind of politics. I can't blame them too much because that is what they teach in our schools. If you are picking the LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD. you might want to rely on facts figures and a RESUME! They do not and never have. Clinton of r an example.

Why are they the party of the young the very old the infirm and the lower class out on their luck? Because this segment of the population do not ANALYZE the facts. They deal with emotion (whats in it for me). The Dem party does this for their votes. They do not give a crap about these people except for their votes. They promise them the world and give them nothing and only take the money and the power.
I am off the soap box now

She is tough as nails, she took on the corrupt political, republican I might add, machine in Alaska and won despite dirty tricks and double dealings from the crooks. She will kill Biden in any debate.

I am sure that to a CNN Reporter/Democrat perspective that Palin is risky.

What’s more ‘risky’ to a Democrat than a heterosexual woman who is married (to a man) with children, who loves to hunt/fish, belongs to the NRA, was a beauty pagent contestant, plays basketball, goes to church, was elected by more humans as Mayor and Govenor than all the votes Obama ever received.

Sure sounds risky to me given the hatred the Obama campaign has for women in general.

Yes our vice presidential candidate can't match the enormous foreign policy experience of their presidential candidate. After all Mr community organizer himself did give a speech in Germany, that counts...right?

Not unexpected, but ironic from a party whose nominee is supposedly going to do all of these wonderful things — change the country and even the world— and has no record of accomplishment.

Biden will be so cocky and condescending during the debates, he’ll defeat himself. I’m betting by the second debate he won’t be able to help himself and will call her “little lady”.

Worse Than Quayle
by Trapper John
Fri Aug 29, 2008 at 08:36:03 AM PDT

So it's official - John McCain has thrown a Hail Mary and tapped Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. The trad med types are ga-ga about what a game-changing choice Palin is. And they're right. It is a game-changer. The Palin pick takes a race already leaning toward Obama and pushes it further into his corner.

Why? Because Sarah Palin is the most unqualified VP nominee in modern history, with the possible exception of Admiral Stockdale.

She's worse than Quayle.

I'll bet this guy is so scared, tonight he'll drive his Subaru Forrester into a lamppost.

Well lets compare:

obamawama: No foreign experience, belonged, for twenty years, to a church whos leader did not like America and also the person who wants to POTUS who likes playing with his crotch rather that paying respect to the Flag of the country he will be expected to defend.

biden: An arrogant pos who steals others peoples thoughts and ideas.

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

She's an excellent public speaker.

Far from a "Hail Mary" pass, this appears to be an inspired choice. She's been taking the Democrats to task because they won't allow drilling in Alaska and offshore. Should be music to everyones' ears.

Besides the which, Geraldine Ferraro didn't sink the Mondo; it was Walter's promise to raise taxes.

In Obama's defense, he polls way better with the deceased here in Chicago than Palin ever could.

In Chicago, they say you should vote Republican while your alive, because once you die you will only vote for Democrats.

No, it’s risky to put Obama up as your PRESIDENTIAL candidate. Want some descriptors of that?

Even if all it does is Jazz up the GOP base, it will be a brilliant pick. AND IT WILL JAZZ UP THE GOP BASE. Evangelicals are thrilled. Prolifers too. Gun owning NRA members? She’s one of them. It’s not every day that you get a candidate that can appeal to the hillary voters and NRA at the same time. I cannot imagine that picking a woman would turn too many voters off, and the idea that you would go “the VP is too risky so I’m going with barack hussein obama” is absurd.

Let them try the inexperience line. It will fail. Their attacks on Quayle failed. We look for the PRESIDENT to be ready on Jan 20th not the VP.

MCCAIN/PALIN is a great ticket.

Recent polls show Americans are more conservative than TV pundits think they are. Palin will bring in those people, women and those that see Obama as an arrogant, empty suit. Polls show Obama tanking. Women who would’ve voted for Hillary will vote for McCain because of Palin. And Sarah Barrucuda earned her nicknmae name. Also, Palin wants to drill. That’s what Americans want.

It is over the democrats in this elections and some of them know it some are too delusional to realize it. Even before Palin pick McCain was certain to win the elections. Now with Palin pick it will be a crushing defeat for them because many of Hillary Clinton supporters will vote for her just based on the gender issue.
