Every time I hear Palin speak, I feel like I'm at one of those houseware or candle parties. You know the kind I mean, where the hostess is pressuring you to buy stuff so she can get free stuff for herself? I say that not to be mean, but just to share my gut-level response to the person who wants to be our vice pres.

Take a big breath and put down your Liberal Lexicon of Turgid Talking Points for a moment.

We have two unabashed liberals (the National Journal rates Obama and Biden the first and third most liberal senators) running against two unabashed conservatives (McCain has a lifetime 82 percent American Conservative Union rating. Obama and Biden are 8 and 13 percent on the ACU scale.)

The people get to decide between two vastly different philosophies of governance. Why are liberals so paranoid about that prospect?

"Palin's experience OK" : Illinois's Dem guv

http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/bl ...

"The reality is, governors every day have to make decisions for better or for worse. That's part of the job. It's an executive position. And it's a position that is like what you're going to do when you're president. Legislators, they do different things. They debate and they pass their bills back and forth," he said.

"But governors make decisions, and I think it's a tactical mistake for the Democrats to question Gov. Palin's experience when she's been a governor of a state," he said. "I don't think the size of the state is relevant. It's the kinds of decisions you have to make as governor.

Palin is a liar and a book burner and abuser of power. She is the Imelda Marcos of Alaska. She is so ignorant it is terrifying. Charging the state for nights she stayed at her own home. Dave Durenberger did that and wisely decided to not stand for re-election after he got caught doing that. McCain needs to dump Palin and do it before even worse things about her are revealed.

Exactly!

She aint a smooth talking Lawyer, a Polished Politician, or a Values less human that has been "jaded" by the system. She is a Plain Old human being that grew up in America, was not "vetted" properly, falls short of her own values, but keeps the values anyway....One of "Us"

She is EXACTLY the Candle Party Lady we need. She doesnt need to be "expert", she needs to Pick the experts, Lead the experts, and motivate the experts to do the task they are hired to do.

She is our pretty auntie that has a good heart to boot.

Palin is great for America.

I like her relatability, her attitude to reform government from the inside out and that she supports good, moral Christian values.

So, if you need open heart surgery, you'll pick the guy you'd like to have a beer with to do your surgery, rather than the highly trained cardiovascular surgeon? Or, does expertise count everywhere except in the highest offices in our government?

That same argument goes both ways, and cuts out Obama's chances. A governor makes the kind of decisions everyday that affect the enterprise of running the state. Hundreds of "present" votes in the legislature, effectively taking no stand or making no decision seem to indicate even less experience than a vice-presidential candidate.

Those "present" votes in the Illinois senate are not the same as taking no stand or making no decision. In the Illinois senate, a "present" vote means you approve, in general, of the legislation, but you have reservations about some of the provisions. It is, in effect, a vote to reexamine the legislation, change some of the provisions, and bring it in for a re-vote.

So far, the decisions Palin has made really make me question her judgment. And, as her interviews show, she doesn't have a clue about international relations - blithely talking about going to war with Russia, for example. Nuclear holocaust, anyone? Of course, that could bring about the "rapture".....

Easy to interpret this way after the fact. How many other state senators voted in this fashion? Oh yeah, probably very few would have researched this the same as a constitutional law professor. A law professor that saw a way to be on both sides of every issue, I might add..........

Another overwrought liberal who needs to take a deep breath and put down his well-thumbed Liberal Lexicon of Turgid Talking Points.

And, mirabile dictu, more helpful liberal "advice." Having failed in their efforts to get McCain to pick a beatable liberal running mate, liberals are now dispensing more campaign strategy to him. These bargain-basement Rasputins are nothing if not persistent.

Terrifying for liberals, isn't it, that the great unwashed public will decide this election, despite the desperate efforts of the Obamaphiliac media and McCain's solicitous liberal "advisors."

Translation: "McCain needs to dump Palin because she's moved the election out of our reach."

The reaction of the Democrats is kinda fun to watch. Yes, in his pick for VP, McCain resorted to a "Hail Mary" pass, but the pass was completed, and now they're running toward the goal line, with a clear field in front of them. And the Democrats are reduced to pulling up chunks of turf and throwing it at them. Too little, too late, I'm thinkin'...

Actually, voting "present" the way Obama did is a standard procedure in the Illinois legislature when you generally approve of a bill, but want to negotiate some changes in it.
