Please…why would anyone be surprised that Obama is bought and paid for by the same greedy bastards who paid for McCain and Hillary (and W, for that matter?)?
That’s why he’s still “in it” to begin with. We all know what happens to candidates who don’t take wall street’s money - they get run out of the race, smeared all over town, get denied honest press coverage (as if there were such a thing), their party turns their back on them, etc, etc, etc.
There is no candidate besides the Wall Street candidate - no matter who you pick Wall Street wins - and so does the Federal Reserve, Big Oil, and last but by no means least - Israel. Those are the only true winners in a modern American presidential race. We, the people, lose every time.

Seems anyone who was someone did not want to be part of a losing ticket, he had to go to a complete unkown and once again cateres to the oil industry by picking up an Alaskan Republican and undoubtedly will push for greater oil exploration across Alaska and west coast.

This is a losing bet.
She has no electoral votes to deliver and the left wing and centrist women are not going to just jump on the McCain bandwagon just because it is a woman. She is unproven from a state with a small population. She offer very little to a ticket and he has sealed his own fate.

Obama/Biden is now clearly the best and most experienced ticket overall.

McCain would have been better to suit up Joe Lieberman for one more try, than make this decision.

In 1972, Brzezinski's wrote that "nation-state as a fundamental unit
of man's organized life has ceased to be the principal creative
force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting
and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political
concepts of the nation-state."
The late Senator Barry Goldwater (R-AZ) was one of a very few people
who understood what Brzezinski was alluding to, when he issued a
clear and precise warning in his 1979 book, With No Apologies:

“The Trilateral Commission is international and is intended to be
the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and
banking interests by seizing control of the political government of
the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful,
coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers
of power – political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical.”

Trilateral Entrenchment: 1980-2008

Every Administration since Carter has had top-level Trilateral
Commission representation through the President or Vice-President, or
both! George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Dick Cheney are all
members.

In turn, these have appointed their Trilateral cronies to top
positions in their Administrations.

For instance, six out of seven World Bank presidents have been
members of the Commission. Eight out of ten USTR’s (U.S. Trade
Representative) have been members.

Secretaries of State include Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, Alexander
Haig, George Schultz, Lawrence Eagleburger, Warren Christopher and
Madeleine Albright. Yep, all members of the Trilateral Commission.

Follow the money, follow the power

You decide which is scarier: Obama and Brzezinski or McCain and Henry
Kissinger?

Either way, Americans will continue to lose…

Every major crisis we face today is directly attributable to policies
put forth and executed by members of this Trilateral Commission:
Banking/lending/mortgage crisis, energy/gas price crisis,
food/shortage/price crisis.

In addition, in the last fifteen to twenty years we have lost of
millions of prime manufacturing jobs to China, India and Mexico. Our
prime assets are being purchased by sovereign wealth funds and
foreign investors. Our currency has all but been destroyed throughout
the world.

Remember Brzezinski's vision that "international banks and
multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are
far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state"?

Well, that’s been true enough. But, for all their acting and
planning at the expense of our own prosperity and Sovereignty, who
wants or needs more of the same under Obama or McCain? With friends
like this, who needs enemies?

For several Presidential elections now, this writer has voted
according to the philosophy of voting for the “lesser of two
evils.” Never again!

A vote for either Obama or McCain is a vote for the complete
destruction of America!

Bahahaha. Except Palin isn't the Pres. nominee.

And the McCain camp has the same amount of change as Obama.

McCain's only chance for winning was by getting the white, male chauvinist vote. Now, he won't even get that. This election is over. Terrible pick.

Is she Jewish?

Boy, the McCain camp was quick to point out how inexperienced Obama was and then they pick this. This goes to show how McCain uses his "poor judgment" like he did when he was a part of the Keating five.

It's obvious what the "Maverick" McCain is doing...he is pandering to as many groups of voters as possible with this pick...

- Disgruntled Clinton supporters will love that he picked a woman

- Oil industry loves her because she is on their side

- NRA loves her as a lifetime member

- Republicans lover her for her conservative values

I see through it, and see it as a ploy to get more votes. It's a gimmick that I really thought McCain would avoid....

It's sad really.
