John McCain's running mate was in Pittsburgh for a fundraiser at the Westin Convention Center Hotel, Downtown.

I liked her response to the troopergate question, where she explains how she wants to be held accountable.

Palin has more than just “intellectual curiosity” (that dork of mediocre intellect who apparently used to work for Palin, on some cable news show the other day repeated several times that she didn’t have it). She has intellectual foresight, intellectual power, and intellectual morality.

That Piper! I just melt when I see that kid. Does she have as strong a presence as she seems to?

I mean, she seems like one of those rare children who gives the impression of an adult stuck in a kid body.

There's a sad sort of clanging
From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple, too
And up in the nursery
An absurd little bird
Is popping out to say coo-coo
(Coo-coo, coo-coo)

The sun has gone
To bed and so must I

So long, farewell
Auf Weidersehen, goodbye

Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

Just heard on the radio news before the Terry Anderson show that McCain will appear with Letterman Thursday night. Supposedly, they have ‘made up’.

Because, pissant, more people get their political views from late night comedians and the view, etc. than they do from any other source.

COnsidering how anti-Bush these programs were in 2000 and 2004, I’d think it safe to ignore these idiots

Well, maybe Yosemite Sam will be a bit quicker on his feet than he was at the debate.

Personally, I agree with ignoring idiots. But some of Duncan Hunter’s best interviews were done with left wing questions. He absolutely thrived like it was a personal mission to tear up all those propaganda talking points.

Now Palin is no Duncan Hunter; but he thinks highly of her. So maybe she is of the same cloth.

Congrats.

As a FReeper, I’m just disappointed that, with an opportunity to question Palin about the one topic the media has purposefully not questioned her on, and the one topic she has failed to offer her position on, you passed on questioning her about illegal immigration & amnesty, especially since the economic crisis tracks back to Bush’s 2002 challenge for an ‘Ownership Society’. The number of subprimes given to illegal aliens would be tops on my list. Most frustrating, has been the media’s refusal to broach the subject and getting away with it. Irks me to no end.
