Palin's record reveals that she has modeled her style of governance after Dick Cheney, whose authoritarian principles of leadership rely heavily on lying, secrecy and vindictiveness.

if he were not a US citizen - we'd know it by now. More lies meant to try and scare people away from the better choice - not that either is so great but apparently the neocons are terrified the dems will win with this one and some of you are coming up with fiction that could make Stephen King jealous

No, it is the Bush gang's idea. McCain sold out to them when his campaign collapsed in the primary. Rove picked Palin. McCain wanted Lieberman.

Well said. It would be laughable how flat earth society they are but sadly some Americans are actually dumb enough to buy their crapola. This race is about illiterate versus literate.

People who are still supporting McCain - Palin won't be swayed by the debates. They aren't logical. If they were it wouldn't take the debates to changes their minds.

I wish that were true. Unfortunately, McCain sold out to the religious right when he met with Franklin Graham (Billy's son and high ranking member of the CNP) He let them pick his VP candidate and they chose Palin after she hired Graham's good friend Kopp to replace Monegan. The Anchorage Daily News and The Nation both have articles about it. What kind of man wants to be president so badly that he would put an end times fanatic that close to the nuclear button?

Another Tarbaby attack on Palin.

We surely will need something along mental health care reform as it seems a pandemic of PDS is sweeping about 30% of the U.S. population.

The above is a prime example of the many history illiterate politically inept nitwits who read what dropped out of some dirty diaper democRat's behind and they roll around in it like it's fresh snow...pathetic.

The choice is between the Americanism of John McCain and Sarah Palin or the euro-socialism of Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Literate individuals can see the above residue of the '60s is a socialist...A fact the illiterate gutless wonder will not admit to...Ain't dat right?

Saturday Night Live joined ranks with the filthy lowlife slanderous scum who reside in cyberspace.
In a skit based on Reporters Traveling to Alaska they stooped to the level of attaching "incest" to Governor Palin's husband. A certain "joke" contended it's cold in Alaska thus a basis was established for the Palin daughters being subjected to incest. Needless to say, audience response was lukewarm and in the world of "comedy" that's a slap in the face...However in this case, the use of baseball bats would have been fitting.
And as the skit ended incest was mentioned again...Obviously, they're not called New York dirty diaper democRats for nothing.

Notice how the same bags of manure who "warned" us 8 years ago about VP Dick Cheney dropping dead from another heart attack while in office...So much for predictions coming from democRat quack doctors.
Today they warn us about John McCain dropping dead and we should fear the thought of Sarah Palin taking the helm...
Not to worry, dirty diaper democrats...John McCain will survive the next four years and in 2012 VP Sarah Palin will be elected President Of The United States...Isn't that what you slanderous gutless wonders are really worried about?

Anyone who asks why someone kills a moose, etc. is the kind of idiot who would starve to death if it were not for grocery stores.
Furthermore, I can't wait for the debates either...Nitwits like you are going to witness Joe Obiden get his head handed to him, that is if he doesn't put his foot in his mouth again between now and the debate..."Be patriotic: Pay higher taxes." Idiot.

Americans worry Barack Obama could turn out to be Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Louis Farrakhan, Father Phleger, Tony Resko, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Benedict Arnold, A Terrorist Appeaser and a huge insult to The United States Military…

Fortunately, John McCain and Sarah Palin are none of the above.

Wow, really struck a chord with you huh? Maybe a bit too close to home for you?

Get over it you crybabies. There's a button on your remote, it changes the channel when you don't like what's on.

So the GOP thugs threatened to kneecap the man and he had to back off a little bit. The UN mandate will still expire in December. The GOP will be out of power in January. And then the Democrats can start an intelligent foreign policy.
Bush has still been forced out of his hole. The GOP has agreed to a withdrawal.
Attention you democRat Skidmark!!

As I recall, did you or did you not mention you are a member of moveon.org ? And, isn't moveon.org a key contributor to the Obama Campaign to screw America?

And isn't moveon.org the slugs who called General David Petraeus "General Betrayus" in a 10 page newspaper ad? Tell this forum the truth about Obama’s scumbag lowlife socialist contributors and that includes you.

Did candidate Obama denounce his key contributor’s stinking slanderous smear campaign against General David Petraeus or did he ignore it like he ignored the anti-American filth spewed by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Louis Farrakhan, Father Phleger et al?

Perhaps you could list Obama's Military Service? I'll help you out with this one, it may be very difficult for you to admit you have nothing but poop between your ears...

Barack Hussein Obama's Military Service: "ZERO." Once again: "ZERO." And Once Again: "ZERO."

Please explain to this forum how the ZERO Military experience candidate Barack Obama could be firmly against the mission in Iraq and vote against the surge and now he wants to command the mission in Iraq...Explain it.

And after you're done explaining the above explain fully what makes Obama qualified to be president...And, spare the copy and paste platitudes and trinket promises.

Drudge is carrying an article that catches Biden saying no to clean coal plants in the U.S.

That ain't going to play well in Pa., hell , Scranton was founded on coal mining as were many other towns/cities in NE Pa.
