Did a search but FR slow. Mods please remove if Live thread already started.
That can’t be ignored. This can kill any serious bump for Obama and magnify any bump for McCain with the GOP convention coming up. If it’s all about the big MO then McCain might have scored big. Next opportunity for Obama to star large is the debates.
Given the early reaction, Biden must be feeling like a spare hubcap right about now.
I love her and her family! Thank you John McCain for picking her as your running mate! This has made the difference.
This is the first time I donate to the RNC since 2004!
THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTION < HOME
On behalf of President Bush and our Republican candidates, thank you for your generous gift to the Republican National Committee.
Your continued commitment to the RNC is crucial to helping elect a Republican president and reclaim our majorities in the U.S. House and Senate in 2008.
Thank you again for everything you do for our Party and our cause. Grassroots activists like you ARE the Republican Party.
PS: Please note, your contribution will be listed as “EDonation Republican National Committee” on your next statement.
Lower Property Taxes!
God bless you!
God bless America!
Rush said that he thought the experience thing would be a rope-a-dope move. I agree.
Already heard a McCain spokesperson reply to the question if Palin had enough experience. The spokeswoman said, “Well let’s see, our VP candidate has more experience than your Presidential candidate.”
I do believe they want the MSM to ask that question of Palin, so they can hammer home the Dems willingness to accept Obama who has even less experience than Palin.
What a beautiful choice! GO MCCAIN-PALIN! Tee shirts , bumber stickers, I want it all! THE RATS ARE GOING CRAZY ! LOL!
Actually we have one of those people right here on Free Republic. Just follow the link.
Could it be we have a DU Troll?
The depravity over there never ceases to amaze me. Zero substance, non-stop hysteria.
See, that group over at DU is so self-enamored, they believe they know what the rest of they country is thinking. They were proven wrong in 2000 and 2004, and happily, they’re going to make the same mistake here.
They are going to single-handedly win this for McCain by attempting to villify Palin for her supposed backwater origins and governing experience. They are going to turn her into the underdog everyone will want to see win. Obama’s much too egotistical, Biden is much too establishment.
Let’s see what the substance of their argument boils down to:
“She’s pretty, therefore, she’s stupid”
“She’s small-town, therefore, she’s ignorant”
“She’s pro-life, therefore, she’s a tyrant”
“She’s pro-NRA, therefore, she’s bloodthirsty”
“Her son is going to Iraq, therefore, she’s a warmonger”
“She supports creationism, therefore, she’s a zealot”
“She supports drilling, therefore, she’s a planet-hater”
That’s all they’ve got.
I want to donate again, too, but I can’t yet find McCain/Palin yard signs or shirts!
Here is the difference: Republicans deal with a teenage pregnancy and provide a loving home for the baby....Democrats celebrate the pregnancy then kill the baby.
Yep - Col. Boyd would be proud. [GRIN]
Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself, but I feel like we have just heard from the GHOST OF RONALD REAGAN.
She is from the REAGAN GENERATION of Young Republicans brought up to believe that we REALLY CAN change things, not just be slaves to government. I know, I am the same age.
That Government WORKS FOR US, and not the other way around.
Gov. Palin (soon VICE PRESIDENT Palin) needs all our female conservative support at this time. The Dems are going to tear her apart, and she cannot wobble.
In those dark hours, after the Dems viciously go after her, her husband, her children, her family, her faith, and her beliefs, she needs to know we’re here pulling for her.
Close . . . Democrats celebrate a "woman's right to choose" and kill the baby.
So called FReepers have voiced that opinion right here on FR today. Believe it.
Yes, I feel like after years in the wilderness we do in fact have our next Reagan.
You’re totally nuts if you dont’ think this choice is going to energize the Republican base, AND independents!
McCain WILL GET a 10% JUMP, not a bounce, due to this choice.
It is making all the Demodogs apoplectic, as can be seen not only here but at DUh.
I predict that even many LIBERALS will be voting for McCain now, due to this maverick choice!
I think that was rude..I am a Christian and a Conservative. I know how much care Down Syndrome babies need.... As a american I have a right to dis-agree with this choice of Mc Cain’s....
LOL! Apparently so.
When she spoke of her eldest son being in the Army I almost wept because she is proud the way my Mom was proud when I was in the Army so long ago.
Heck, for me it wasn’t “almost”... I was in full weeping mode!
FR is so miserable!!! But I’ve been waiting to post this ... go there and VOTE HERE VOTE NOW!
Poll time: Are you pumped?

I know a large number of michellemalkin.com readers have shared my deep-seated reservations about John McCain. Those reservations especially regarding border security, the environment, campaign finance, and his Soros flirtations remain. And you know I will not hesitate to pound on them. But the Palin VP choice appears to be a huge step forward for movement conservatism. She is the real deal.
Todays poll question: Are you on board with McCain/Palin?
Are you on board with McCain/Palin?
you are wrong.
10% JUMP in the polls for McCain due to this choice... and that may even be too low a guess.
It is SO exciting indeed. I was so ready to be depressed all Labor Day weekend...I have learned my lesson. Drama queen no more! I’m going to make my second donation today...I really can’t wait to wear my button around the city.
She has more executive experience than anyone else on either ticket. Period!
ROFL- a caller on Rush just said “ For the first time in years, I’m proud to be a Republican”....
BEST COMMENT of the DAY!!!!
Now that, will leave a mark. McCain has some sharp people on his campaign.
None taken. She's a good looking lady, married to a good looking man, and together they have five very good looking kids. The menfolk can "admire" her, and the women can "admire" her hubby.
But going beyond her good looks, I believe she has a brain and common sense, and she isn't afraid to use either of them to kick some corrupt political ass.
Yes, and--if true that the daughter is really pregnant out of wedlock--the Palins would show the traditional way of dealing with these unhappy occurances in a fallen world. The Palins' way of dealing with a pregnant daughter would stand as a huge rebuke to the O-man's, "I don't want to punish my daughter with a baby!" comment.
It's Palin's character that shines through, too. As opposed to the freak show on the other side, Palin is transcendently NORMAL! She's someone you can genuinely admire.
this neutralizes the inexperience message
Well, I suppose it then comes down to do you want an
inexperienced person as President or VP.
I think she will do fine and it is time for the Repubs to break some ceilings.
Also loved how she lauded Ferrarro and Clinton, it put
Hillery! right where she belongs, in the PAST.
The PTA leaders I've run into are FAR from over their heads. They can get things done.
We are so ready to hunt moose!
Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC looks devastated. LOL
Worth a replay!
This is why I’ve been noting for the last week how brilliant a campaign McCain’s staff has been running.
This choice caps it, for sure.
” Gov. Palin (soon VICE PRESIDENT Palin) needs all our female conservative support at this time. The Dems are going to tear her apart, and she cannot wobble.

She’s got my wife and daughter, so add them to the army.
I and several of my friends are also enthusiastically aboard
to support her and John M.
Unless I am mistaken, that trumps giving a speech to a couple hundred thousand body hygiene challenged Eur-peens by several orders of magnitude.
Here's to your post, FRiend.
Might I add, like Reagan and Cheney—she is an Aquarius!
They do have father that cares for them also. What this woman will do for our country, she does for all of us, that includes her children.
Then you'll feel right at home at DU or KOs. Today, here at FR, we choose to celebrate the selection of a magnificent vice presidential candidate.
No, I don’t think that’s been said yet.
I was so depressed last night when I went to bed, after having to listen and watch that over-the-top Nuremberg-style coronation last night, and their worship of that radical deceiver.
The Obama campaign and their msm buddies were SOO overconfident last night. Now they're scrambling!!!
I am over the top with joy.
HYPOCRITE SEXISTS AT DU (like we didn’t know that already...)
Get a load of the Sexism on full display over at DU - they’ve even coined a special objectifying slur for the respectable Mrs. Palin, aren’t they just WONDERFUL people? So FAIR in their judgements of people...
Keep talking DUmmies - you’re just proving what hypocrites you really are... No wonder Hillary’s supporters are fleeing in droves!
Guess what? The jig is up, and we were right all along. Nothing but WORDS is what you’ve given women all these years. Enjoy your trip down to the bottom... We women have VERY good memories!!
DU THREAD: “This is historic! America’s very first VPILF!”
I, too, was hesitant...and I was one of the posters who thought her having small children would be an issue. But I am absolutely thrilled. I stood in front of the TV in awe with chills just bawling!
We are all so happy, excited and energized today but what if we lose in November? i don’t think my heart can take that kind of shock.........
Gotta believe The Great One is looking down and smiling broadly today!!!
Puerto Rico Ping! Please Freepmail me if you want on or off the list.
Hillery! right where she belongs, in the PAST.
Well said, well said!!!!!!!!!!
