Your laughable choice for VP seals the deal. You will gain 'zero' votes with your selection.

It was fun playing.

I'm voting for McCain. I don't know how I feel about his VP choice. I was hoping he would choose Lieberman.

I am doing a happy dance. By election day I will surely be doing the slower happy dance but I'll still be dancing!!

Who is Sarah Palin is what I said when I heard the news.
I found out quickly who she is and she is going to be the next Vice President and one day I'm certain she'll be the President too.

What an outstanding lady she is.
I love her too.
She's like the lady next door you go have coffee with .... but better!!

McCain/Palin all the way!!

I think your influencing your daughters qualifies as child abuse. The neat thing is they can vote without you in the booth.

here's more.....from the Anchorage Press
Anatomy of a scandal
At this stage of Wootengate—eight days since the allegations started flying—an investigation by the legislature into conflicting statements between former Department of Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan and Governor Sarah Palin seems inevitable. Really, it can’t happen soon enough.
One of the two seems to be lying to the public. Last Friday, a day into the jousting, Monegan said that he’d been pressured by Todd Palin and members of the Palin administration to fire Trooper Mike Wooten, the Governor’s former brother-in-law. That evening, Sharon Leighow, the Governor’s spokesperson, emailed me,“at no time did Todd Palin or anyone from the administration pressure Commissioner Monegan to fire Trooper Wooten.”
It’s pretty cut-and-dry. An investigation is needed to illuminate whether the Governor and her administration abused the power of her office to interfere in trooper personnel matters, and also whether she or Monegan lied in the aftermath of the supposed revelations.
While we’re left with this cliffhanger and a continuing barrage of accusations from both sides, it’s interesting to look at how the scandal developed. It played out in the media via a series of blogs, single-outlet interviews and a couple of press conferences, with the storyline getting murkier at every turn.
According to Halcro, he was initially examining why Monegan was dismissed from his post as Commissioner of DPS, focusing on budget disputes between the Commissioner and the Governor. Then he received a call last Wednesday morning from someone saying he should speak to Trooper Wooten. He called Wooten, spoke to him for about a half-hour, then called his sources to see if Wooten was credible—“I wasn’t interested, obviously, in chasing any rabbit trails,” he says. He felt comfortable with what he heard, so he got together with Wooten Wednesday night for nearly four hours, going through Wooten’s court transcripts, personnel file, and trooper investigation file.
Thursday morning about 1 a.m. Halcro posted a lengthy entry on his blog, alleging that both the budget disparities and the Wooten issue had led to Monegan being dismissed. At the time, Monegan wouldn’t talk about Wooten or DPS personnel matters.
Thursday afternoon, Public Safety Employees Association Executive Director John Cyr called a press conference and released the troopers’ investigations of Wooten to the media. This seemed like a response to the uproar resulting from Halcro’s blog post, but it wasn’t. Halcro says that when he spoke to Wooten Wednesday, the trooper told him that he’d already authorized his attorney and his union to release any and all documents related to him to the media. The documents didn’t make Wooten out to be an angel—on the contrary, he sounds like a prick—but still, if the Governor pressured Monegan to fire Wooten when the troopers had already dealt with his infractions, and subsequently fired Monegan because he didn’t take action against Wooten, that would be an abuse of her power.
Monegan still wasn’t talking. Friday morning the Governor went on the Bob & Mark Show on 106.5 KWHL (an exceptionally friendly venue), and addressed that allegation, saying,“Walt Monegan, he knows that as well; he was never directed to fire any individual. To be accused of that, that is a lie.”

Is that it? i watched the video and she welcomes any investigation that they want to do. Did you watch the video? This to me seems like a weak argument. Please don't call me an idiot. I will not call you names for your opinion. Thanks for reading.

Typical liberal, so over the top you don't even have a clue. Your statement is pathetically ridiculous. Every single parent since time began has in some way 'influenced' their kid, are you proposing charging all parents with child abuse? Then there's the fact that 18 and 19 year olds aren't children. I know, liberals can't deal with facts...

She seems to have a real go get 'em attitude and she's not gonna take anyone's bull. Granted, i don't know alot about her, but since the announcement I have googled several articles and I'm impressed. I can't wait to see the debates but I think she'll shut Biden down. Just my opinion.

Wow, can you have an intelligent debate about political issues without insulting people? Your views cannot be taken seriously if they are followed by obnoxious statements. By the way, my girls are 19 and 20. Pretty sure "child abuse" wouldn't apply.:)
