McCain-Palin 2008 ^ | 8/29/2008 | Staff

Posted on 08/29/2008 7:37:30 AM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

We are pleased to launch the John McCain-Sarah Palin 2008 web site!

Sarah Palin is currently the Governor of Alaska and assumed office in 2006. She is also the first female governor of Alaska.

We are confident Sarah Palin will make an excellent Vice Presidential candidate with John McCain and we congratulate her on her impeccable record of public service!

Are you sure this is a campaign site? I think it has been up for a while, along with all the other sites put up by people guessing who the VP would be. This person just happened to be right.

This will definitely pull in some PUMAs. I also don’t see it as costing McCain any votes. Her conservative creds seem to be in the right place.

It’s definitely a ballsy move.

McCain is going “all in” with his Drill Here, Drill now offshor oil theme. I love it!

Palin has been his most visible supporter of that policy. Great pick!

Lousy choice. I’m afraid he just handed the White House Obama. God help us!

How the heck is he supposed to make a campaign issue out of Obama’s inexperience when he’s got a running mate with 2 years as governor of a sparsely populated state while being a full-time mother, um, on the side? And what does it say about the Republican Party’s commitment to “family values”, when it sees fit to nominate a mother of 5 children, including a disabled, still-nursing infant, to be VP and step in as POTUS if necessary?

There’s got to be a huge celebration going on in Obama-land right now. And we’d better all be praying that Obama pulls off some really HUGE screw-up between now and Election Day.

Mark Levin's take on "inexperience":

From a purely tactical aspect, Palin would knock the legs out from under Obama's monopoly hold on "change." And attacks on her "inexperience" will only highlight one of Obama's greatest vulnerabilities — and he's at the top of the Democrat ticket. And because Hillary Clinton spent months telling women voters that they are being dissed by Obama, some percentage of women who normally would not vote for McCain will take a second look if Palin's on the ticket. There is no question that a Palin selection would cause the Obama camp headaches.

My question exactly - I’ve seen comments throughout the whole DNC about slowness on the site - won’t the RNC days be even busier? So how does that bode for election night??

I like the Palin selection.

Well, I have not posted in a couple years. Being from Alaska and meeting Palin and living in Wasilla and voting for her to be the mayor there; years ago, and watching her as mayor I am now VERY excited about politics again. My husband died four years ago when I was a very active participant here made me change my priorities. I didn’t care anymore. NOW??? I can't contain my excitement. This woman is a mover and a shaker. She is a Barracuda, and she turned the economy of Wasilla around like a speeding bullet. Our property values doubled in a couple of years under her term as Mayor.

I'm pumped up about this election now. I just wish Palin was the top of the ticket. Maybe in a few years, huh!

You're a glass half empty kind of guy, aren't you? This is a great pick...far superior to any of the other choices that were mentioned.

And what does it say about the Republican Party’s commitment to “family values”, when it sees fit to nominate a mother of 5 children, including a disabled, still-nursing infant, to be VP and step in as POTUS if necessary?

It says a lot. She has a husband, doesn't she? I'm sure she can handle being VP and a mom too.

Obama is inexperienced and running for President. McCain is experienced and running against him. Gov. Palin is not running for president.

Obama is in a bad position to make her inexperience an issue. He is not running against her.

The more inexperience becomes an issue the better for McCain. - Tom

Anyone can launch a website. That doesn’t make it official. There were a number of such sites up last week for various Obama choices. All were fraudulent sites. Unless this site can be directly tied to the official McCain site, I’d be cautious.

Cynics will say McCain picked her for two reasons: the name rhymed and she's a woman. I think though McCain wanted to get away from the Senate-Senate pairing and his choices were either a House member or a Governor. If it wasn't a white male, either Lt West or Bobby Jindal would be solid choices. As it is, the pick underscores that Obama could have reached to women voters but didn't. They will now be giving the GOP ticket another look. Comparisons will be made with Walter Mondale choice of Geraldine Ferraro twenty four years ago as the first woman veep, so this is not exactly historic for a major party.

From the linked website source code: I can't imagine an official campaign website using Google advertising where anyone can purchase adwords that would lead to uncontrolled content on the page. So this is not an official website - or it is an official website run by a moron. I wouldn't count on the moron part.

Matt Lauer is very concerned about Sarah Palin. He waved his hand condescendingly as he made the bulletin announcement. Bastards can’t conceal their contempt. The dummies have already taken the bait and called her inexperienced. This is so easy.

Very classy of MSNBC to go local and have these goons stand behind the reporterette with their Larouche style smear posters.

Not happy with the choice; almost makes me want to stay home on voting day. Smacks of more ‘bread and circus’ celebrity type stuff.

Also, not entirely sure an ex-beauty queen deserves the vp office.

I love it. Now, I have heard Palin’s name bandied about by some conservative radio talk show hosts but really didn’t know anything about her except that she had conservative creds. It is great that she is a woman (possibly attract a few disgruntled Hillary farbisseners (sourpusses in Yiddish) and it helps the age thing (Obama picks an older senator to offset his youth and inexperience—McCain picks a young woman to deflect criticism about his age). I am anxious to learn more about her.
