Ha, ha—they were hoping for Tom Ridge or Joe Lieberman and we know darn well why.
there is a thought, old Joe could have a sudden heart attack or suddenly have a family emergency and have to step down. I would not put it past them.
“Isn’t it wonderful how the Democrats are concerned that McCain might have made the wrong choice?
That means he made the right choice.”
They keep dissing Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton. Don’t they realize how mad they have already made Hillary supporters? A lot of the supporters are taking this personally and they are going over to McCain. The dems are digging deeper and deeper.
Not ONE Republican is afraid of Joe Biden....but the libs are PETRIFIED of PALIN....and for good reason!
If they really think its such a disaster, why are they so scared?

What do the dems have to fear??
PS I left out that she is not Messiah, just ordinary American loving America
“Bet they would like a do over on their VP pick.”
VP is not the pick they want to do over, it’s the top of the ticket they would like to change. It’s too late for that and the most savvy of the Dems are now making plans to ride out another four years in the wilderness. Obama’s top fixers can offer ambassadorships to any and everybody, now that that currency has been permanently devalued.
This probably is not the time for Rats to be making any allusion to Catholicism.
good list of positives!
She certainly was NOT awful! She just couldn't help Mondale's campaign.
These Democrats. They are SUCH SEXISTS.
There is precedent for that....McGovern/Eagleton. Hey Joe, when the phone rings or they knock on your door....don't answer....bwahahahahahahaha!
didn’t palin say something about risk in her speech. Something about its always safer in politics to avoid risk. A boat in habor is safe, buts not why the boat was built
You're right. They are in melt-down.
Shes DISATEROUS......to OBAMA!!! GREAT PICK, McCAIN!
(chuckle) She has the scumbags of the left in A PANIC!! She is McCain’s trump card and THEY KNOW IT. THEY ARE DESPERATE to demonize her.
LOL! This is just getting better by the minute!!!
Only Bush won if I remember correctly.
Oh that’s right Bush/Quayle won! I love how these so-called journalists start opining about the future when they ain’t got anything else. Also, if Obama had had 1/2 the scrutiny that Quayle did Hillary would be the candidate.
Bob Beckel was SPEECHLESS with the Palin pick!
I totally agree. Palin's nomination risks costing Obama the election, which the Dems feel would be a disaster. Got it.
You know when the various species of liberalis domesiticus start choir-howling in agony, you hit them where it hurts. This is a strategic blow to the Democratic party, and the fault lines from it may shatter the feminist side of the coalition. They can't hemorrhage women voters for long before their electoral chances completely bleed to death.
Read this next line and weep, Democrats: Every woman in your party will silently judge you for the lines of attack you use on Palin. If you go after her like you went after Hillary, those women will desert you for the Republicans.
The other thing is that Free Republic is energized and motivated like I haven't seen it in months. Maybe years. McCain rolled the dice big time, and early indications are that he won big.
It is not about Palin.
It is about Obmama, he already discarded a woman with the experience of Hillary Clinton. She is not good enough.
Now Obama is claiming that Palin lacks experience.
Experience, has no impact Obama beliefs, it is that he finds all woman unqualified to be Pres or VP.
Who's the Democratic pick for President? How many knew him before the campaigning started?
Our VP has more experience than their Presidential candidate! At least her resume doesn't read: Slumlord and community organizer.

I love how these so-called journalists start opining about the future when they aint got anything else.
It shows how empty they are. They are DESPERATE!! Isn’t it amazing they actually get paid to do this? What useless losers -— I would not recommend buying ANY MSM stocks....(LOL!)
You can say EXACTLY the same thing about Obama's mismatch with McCain
Sounds like an endorsement to me.
One more reason for Gerry Ferraro to endorse the McCain-Palin ticket.
I bet they would like a do over on both their picks.
Palin vs. Hillary in 2012.
Why should CNN care if the Republicans are in trouble?
MSM trying to sow the seeds of discontent, LOL will backfire.
Beautiful woman both physically and spiritually, good on McCain for this choice.
MSM are irrelevant this cycle, although still trying to shape election.
I say good riddance to bad trash(MSM),
I'm watching my Dem buddies have a collective spittle-throwing fit at the moment. "How dare McCain upstage the Messiah? Who is this upstart? A...a...woman? The Republicans hate women! We own that demographic!"
I can't wait for the first debate, when she walks out there and looks Biden in the eye and says "you want change? This is change!"
I agree with the others - Obama looks at a 10-point deficit this time next month and Joe's going to have a sudden medical problem. And you know what else? The Dems were looking forward to mocking a lackluster, boring, whitebread Republican convention next week. All of a sudden here's the passion, baby. Deal with it.
Of course the Dems are going to say that. You don’t expect that they are going to say “Holy crap, that was an awesome pick. We sure are screwed now!”
And Obama is NOT risky? Buahahahahah!
Obama campaignin for the Orange Islamofascist Party in Kenya, August 2007.Result Genocide:
Here an Orange Party fascist in an orange jacket directs a mob to slay Kukuyu in Kenya. This is what Obama helped create in Kenya. This has been covered up by the MSM, and Obama is NOT risky, and Palin IS?
DEMS: ALL your wimmin votes are belong to US!!!!!!
The Dems and MSN are having a cow over McCain’s choice.
I love the smell of Democrat flop sweat in the morning. It smells like Victory!
Troubling to Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer, who might have to get real jobs someday.
Yea, they are squealing like stuck pigs—that means they are really afraid. I betcha they wanted Joe Lieberman...
Thanks Sen.McCain for making a great decision! The Dems do not know what to make of it!:)
I wonder why CNN didn't mention that the "top Senate Democrat" was Chuck Schumer. Why be so coy about it?
They knew Obama made a huge mistake in not picking Hillary and now they’re horrified to find that they’re facing a team that is smart enough to take advantage and capitalize off of their mistakes.
That was the sound I heard of hell freezing over.
....Instead, McCain will have the unhappy Hilary female supporters in his pocket.
I am just so amazed Dems would bring up the “experience” thing with Palin!
Their POTUS Candidate is the least qualified of any of the present candidates, as well as the larger field of all primary candidates.
Talk about something that will blow up in their face!
Hail Mary? No, just a perfectly thrown 30-yard pass to a receiver who was wide open due to a completely blown defensive coverage.
Risky and disastrous for the dems, yes.
Not buy stocks? Are you kidding? At this rate, that's the least of their worries. They need to find an Olbermann-sized straightjacket and put him in it before he puts a .357 magnum in his mouth.
Every major journalist in the MSM will be on suicide watch within the next 30 days. Those that make it that far, anyway...
The next President of the United States of America will be a Republican. Look ye journalists upon thy future and despair! :-)
