Actually it looks like that it is the democrats and the liberal media that is losing it's collective mind over what a good choice Sarah Palin was.

Sounds to me like this commentator thinks attractive women are not up to the task.

As opposed as I was initially to the selection of Palin (based only on her limited national security expertise), I’m discovering a new admiration for McCain, and his shrewd gambit here.

If the ‘Rats and their media collaborators start questioning Palin’s experience, McCain only has to respond with “let’s compare Governor Palin’s experience and qualifications to be Vice President, with Senator Obama’s experience and qualifications to be PRESIDENT.”

And it would seem the ‘Rats and the MSM have gone for the cheese. The next sound you hear will be their collective necks being snapped by that trap coming down on top of them.

I like it.

It is already fun watching the libs cope. As usual, they can't. Every argument they throw against her will reflect on their own presidential candidate. Frustrated, wacko libs are fun to watch (when not in power).

I suspect the likes of CNN and NBC thought they were done with having to prop up the charismatic empty suit and now they have to do it again.

I have been reading MSM analysis of the Palin pick all morning. They consistently say she “solidifies” the base of the party.

Sarah Palin does not solidify the base, she ELECTRIFIES the base. “Going after disenfranchised Hillary supporters” is nice but really has little do with it for those of us who were soft supporters of John McCain before yesterday.

Sarah Palin is OUR candidate!

Any inkling of objective journalism has completely disappeared. CNN, CNBC, MSNBC and the major networks are openly and actively campaigning for Obama bin Biden. There isn’t even a pretense of objectivity anymore.

She must have been referring to what Paul Begala said yesterday after the Palin announcement. That is a direct quote of the forehead who is capable of saying just about anything.

The MSM is as panicked as the Democrats are and the favorable reaction from the American people has left them stunned! They don't know what to do since they never expected McCain to steal Obama's thunder. No body is talking Obama and that's huge!

When ones enemies rant about your decisions, that it confirmation the decision is correct.

The GOP will have a REAL person[Sarah Palin]on the ticket with an aging ex fighter jock too oppose a an alien communist and a an old white guy blowhard from a twit of a state!

No but I think its safe to say that he isn’t going with a safe choice. She could be a home run choice or a strike out. Its too early to tell.

“has john mccain lost his mind?”

typical liberal/communist tactic to denigrate and cast aspersions on an enemy’s sanity.

they are going to become the usual overbearing swine as they become desperate. (to say they are scu&bags is an insult to scu&bags.)

I agree. As we so clearly found out during the primaries,,,,the GOP was desperate to find a new and exciting conservative face. That's part of the reason we ended up with McCain.

As a conservative who was NOT going to vote for McCain--Palin has changed my mind. I most certainly now WILL vote for McCain and encourage others to do the same.

She DOES electrify the base!!

They were talking this morning that she wasn't a replacement for Hillary, because she didn't have the same extensive foreign policy experience.

When and where did Hillary ever get/have any executive experience, let alone foreign policy experience?!!!

These people are so far in the tank for Obama that they've got to where a snorkel. This is going to back fire on them. Its rope a dope time baby.

That's it. Don't know how many women for Hillary or women Dems will be added. But up until now, the Republican support has been tepid, anti Marxist vote. Now the Repubs are enthused and excited and the Dems know that means crawling over broken glass voters.

The Dems are registering every warm body in all 50 states, attempting a Rove GOTV. So at this point, polls mean very little. Turnout is going to be everything. JMO

I could not agree more.

In a matter of 24 hours, I went from holding my nose and voting against Obama to enthusiastically voting for McCain/Palin. I am voting day one when early voting opens and every day after up until and if possible a few days after the election.

I was just surfing some PUMA and HRC boards. It was not only a home fun, but the bases were loaded.

If we thought we had seen the worst from the East Coast elitists, particularly the elite media, up to now, we are in for a shock. The war between the East Coast elites and the rest of the country is about to go from a cold war to a hot war.

I e-mailed the McCain camp and said that he should have Gov. Palin debate Barry and him debate Biden and see who is more qualified to be President our Vice-Presidential candidate or their Presidential candidate.

Correct. Think John Boyd’s OODA Loop, observe, orient, decide, act. Get inside the opponent’s decision making cycle. Make him keep responding to your actions. Base your actions on his and on his options. Looks like McCain may have attended one of Boyd’s famous lectures.

My wife and I were not going to vote this year because of the way McCain constantly fought against W during the last 8 years. I hoped he would pick a Bobby Jindal, and he did. What a great VP pick!! We'll see you at the voting booth in November.
