Why is that such a shocker?

"But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh -- it's got to be all about job creation too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, um, scary thing, but 1 in 5 jobs being created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that."

Other than being cheeky and folks in speeches,...I have not seen any strong suits

...certainly nothing that qualifies her for VP position
...and makes her a liability to the nation if anything should happen to McCain.

Hmmm. A Huffington Post article? Count me in! They are the most fair and objective news out there! Why I can't tell if they are conservative or liberal! Do they support Obama or McCain? It is refreshing to have such an objuective news source on this sight with no political bias!

I am still amazed at how often Sarah Palin's lack of experience is called into question because she would be "a heartbeat away from the Presidency". Obama has less experience and zero actual accomplishments, and if elected, he would be President from day one.

Palin represents less people in Alaska than obama does as a senator of illinois
in fact the population of Alaska is less than the city of San Francisco

....but then again there is that Russia,...and Putin rearing his head...so maybe she has a leg up

He has something she doesn't, INTELLIGENCE.

From the article:

Gov. Sarah Palin, by John McCain's estimation, "knows more about energy than probably anyone in the United States of America."

I understand election time exaggerations, but I think that is too big of a piece of BS for anyone to swallow.
What's next? Maybe we'll be told that Gov. Sarah Palin knows more about nuclear fission than Einstein ever did.

Copied this Palin statement from the previous poster......

"But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh -- it's got to be all about job creation too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track.

Maybe she's smarter than all of us combined, and what she said makes complete sense to her. Maybe it makes sense to someone. Maybe, just may....oh, forget it, she's an idiot. I was just trying to be positive.

Palin's lack of intelligence comes into play here, she proves beyond a reasonable doubt that she is not qualified to lead a girl scout troop, let alone our country.

By choosing her as V.P., Mccain's judgement comes into question, if he is not capable of choosing a qualified V.P., then how is he going to fill seats in the Supreme Court, Cabinet, and ambassadors.

But she's a maverick and she'll get all mavericky on you! Isn't it amazing all the mudslinging she is doing now knowing she will never need to give any facts to back up her outrageous claims since no one is allowed to ask her any questions? Keep running your mouth off, Militia Barbie. You're only hurting your camp more and more.

I will raise the awareness that there are some who does not like the idea of a colored commander in chief of this great nation. I want to raise the bar of caution. Let this racist not to intimidate & scared Americans to vote for a "CHANGE"!
As the count down for presidential election is approaching. The whole world is watching America open its new chapter of his history. There is also danger just like what happen to JFK. America must not allowed this to happen.

Huffington Post? That's a pile of lowlife socialist propagandists supporting Obama who'll say or do anything to get him elected. Biased pro-Obama, bash McCain headings permeated this forum. Read the profiles of Iria and his ilk who post the crap...Are they for Obama? you betcha.

Obama/Obiden? Two self-serving stick in the mud democRats who deny drilling, deny exploration, deny new refineries, deny clean coal, deny nuclear power, etc.
OPEC looked at democRats screwing their own economy by denying measures for energy independence and laughed all the way to the bank, OPEC had no competition to fear, guaranteed by democRats beholden to their oil hating contributors.
High gasoline prices, high food costs, high utilities, high cost of goods and services, home foreclosures? Thank stinking self-serving democRats beholden to a euro-socialist ideology not Americanism.

Palin is a joke, a fake, a sham. She's a clueless, ditzy, mean-spirited airhead.

I know far more about energy issues than she does.

If she can't even get her facts straight in regards to Alaska, how could she even begin to understand the far more complex energy issues of the lower 48?

I know I've heard that voice and speaking style before. It was back in the early 80's when the movie came out called "Valley Girl", which had a whole bunch of unique and dumb sounding sayings.
This is EXACTLY what Sarah sounds like with all that "you betcha, joe six pack, et al", and that utterly stupid looking winking, along with those dorky sounding voice inflections. She is trying to be cute and folksy, but she is instead sounding like an absolute dork.
