Palin brings up the surge and how McCain pushed for it. I was disappointed with McCain’s answer, though. I think the questioner meant in the US and not necessarily just Iraq. jmo

Palin just brought up that McCain warned about Fannie Maw’s etc. cheers

Palin does a great job of being McCain’s cheerleader and bringing up things that he overlooks.

The questioner had some kind of agenda. He was convinced that Islam was going to win (I think) so no answer was going to satisfy him.

A Hillary Democrat saying that those that say Hillary dems won’t vote for McCain are wrong.

That wasn’t my take, I think McCain misunderstood. The question was long and convoluted so, who knows. :)

I’m sorry I tuned into this. The pandering is puke-inducing. And Palin isn’t much better.

A lot of it does sound like that. But I think they've determined that they have the base firmly in camp so now they're appealing to the know nothings in the middle. It sounds stupid and pandering because that's what they need to do at this point...I guess.

I hit the back button on my browser and came back, then reclicked the ustream feed. That took care of the sound problem.

Palin talking now about energy independence.

I can’t believe he actually stood there and said with a straight face that inequality for women is caused by schools.

They’re getting better now that they’re off the PUMA subject.

I don’t think that kind of talk helps him as much as he thinks it does.

Palin talking about how energy independence is key to prosperity. Trickle down.

Next question from a doctor asking if they will stand up against trial lawyers like Edwards, that are driving medical costs up?

Wow, if you get scared from someone telling you to go away, the mailman must make you jump out of your skin.

Listen, if you have some kind of problem with my opinion on McCain’s pandering, I really couldn’t possibly care any less.
