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.”

Precisely!

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.

What do the dems have to fear??

“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.

Judging by the way the left is practically vomiting on themselves over Palin, I'm convinced she is an outstanding choice.

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.

Dems say Palin is 'risky,' could be a disaster

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.

Heh.

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.

I think we are framing the discussion about experience incorrectly.

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.

I love the comment about her being a dark horse, an unknown.

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.

In an issued statement, Sen. Chuck Schumer said Palin is significantly mismatched to Democratic VP candidate Joe Biden and said the prospect of her becoming president is "troubling."

You can say EXACTLY the same thing about Obama's mismatch with McCain

Beautiful woman both physically and spiritually, good on McCain for this choice.

MSM are irrelevant this cycle, although still trying to shape election.

I'm touched by their concern. I mean, they have the Republicans' best interests at heart, right?

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.

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.

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.

Hail Mary? No, just a perfectly thrown 30-yard pass to a receiver who was wide open due to a completely blown defensive coverage.

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! :-)
