Gives a whole new meaning to "shotgun wedding". Him running across the glacier to get away and Palin hanging out of the helicopter with him in her scope!
WHY WON'T OBAMA RELEASE HIS COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS?

The Obama campaign declined to comment for this article and did not offer an explanation for why his transcript has not been released. But observers speculated that one reason might be the racially charged nature of the election. Mr. Obama has acknowledged benefiting from affirmative action in the past, and details about his academic performance might open him up to critics eager to accuse him, probably unfairly, of receiving a free ride, Mr. Kabaservice said.

"Anyone who is a minority and who's come up partially through the meritocracy — getting into good colleges, and subsequently good law schools — is going to come under suspicion that there was some kind of affirmative action boost," he said. "I suspect this is an area of discomfort for Obama."

OBAMA WILL NOT release any records of his 8 years in the Illinois State Senate; he won't release his college records; he won't provide a certified copy of his birth certificate; and some of the records of his relationship with the unrepentant terrorist, William Ayres, are being kept secret. WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO HIDE? IS THIS THE KIND OF MAN WE CAN TRUST AS OUR PRESIDENT?

HMMm More Palin lies.

Let's add this to AIL
Her bridge to nowhere
Her being against earmarks when she is!
She did not sell the plane on EBAY
After going unsold for months, the jet was put into the hands of Turbo North Aviation, an Anchorage aircraft broker, which put an asking price of $2.45 million on the nearly $2.7 million jet. It quickly sold to Alaska businessman Larry Reynolds for $2.1 million ($31,000 of which went to Turbo Aviation). Today the Westwind II jet spends its days ushering wealthy hunters around Alaska and Russia.

And she has been to 6 colleges in 6 years!

Republican vice presidential nominee Palin changes colleges 6 times in 6 years

No wonder they won't let her speak!

What is the difference between what Kwame Kilpatrick the mayor of Detroit was charged with and Palin did?

The only difference is the mayor of Detroit is going to prison while Palin is running free. This woman is just another crook like McCain and Bush.

HERE'S WHAT MIKE WOOTEN, THE TROOPER IN THE PALIN "TROOPERGATE" EPISODE, JUST SAID ABOUT PALIN IN HIS FIRST INTERVIEW:
The father of three, who was married four times, told CNN, "I'm trying to move on and be the best dad I can to my children. Be the best trooper that I can be. You know, I love my job. I love this state."
He added that McCain's choice of Palin as his running mate was "absolutely wonderful for the state of Alaska."
SORRY OBAMA CULTISTS; NO RED MEAT HERE.
Mccains camp needs to stay out of a bi-partian investigation for corruption of sarah Palin.
She has to account for her actions if she is guilty.She is not special!

That began long before he had ever met her (THAT ONE TIME)

This is exactly the problem with the current administration thinking they above our judicial system!

But he like to state he's no George Bush!
Bullshit!

Pretty simple-minded response. How do you extrapolate that believing in the death penalty for individuals who have been convicted for heinous crimes equals hating "the born?" And how do you defend killing the unborn while refusing to kill those who murder?

And one more thing. I don't know of a single anti-abortion, pro-death penalty person who wouldn't gladly agree to to a compromise which would abolish capital punishment ALONG with abolishing abortion. Now how many pro-choice anti-death penalty people do you know who would agree to that? Let me know if you find one.

Abortion is a distraction issue. It comes up once every 4 years and everybody gets their panties in a wad about it I personally am against abortion but to say that just passing laws against it is the answer or having a self righteous president who doesn’t like it will change anything is dumb. GW is and was against abortion. Has any change of any real substance happened? No. You can cry that the liberals stopped him from changing things and that just tells me that for candidates to campaign that they are going to snap their fingers and fix everything in Washington is a fantasy.

The only administration where abortions went down was Clintons. That is because during his regime, emphasis and funding was put into family planning, education for the youth and adoptions. That is a positive approach to abortion that was far more effective than just getting all misty eyed and passing laws that don’t change a thing.

Meanwhile whether the candidates are for or against abortion doesn’t repair our infrastructure, deal with the war or with Iraq, do anything about our economy, improve education or shore up our borders. Abortion reform doesn’t have any significant impact on the daily lives of the majority of the people in the country. It is a distraction that gets a lot of attention because it is easy to get a fight up about it.

The most intelligent post I have read in along time.
It is a misdirection topic. It gets the evangelicals actually thinking it will get banned.
What they don't grasp is that they are being used.
Health care, Paharmacutical, and DR lobbyest make too much money off it to allow it to be banned.
The only answer if education. And I am glad you pointed out they dropped with Clinton in office. A pro-choice president.
Have risen with ever Pro-life president.
It is based on the economy. If one feels they can financially support a child or programs are implemented to support the child.Then the child will be born.
If the economy is faltering like the last 8 years they rise.
More people believe in the quality of life than the quantity.
If they feel they can't provide for the child that becomes the deciding factor in their choice to abort.
If the evangelicals would just look at the real picture. and take the issue more seriously they would not be backing the Republican candidate with no economic knowledge other than keeping to Bush policy.
That's why deep down I really think it's about controlling people raher than the actual child.
Not once have I ever heard any religious affiliation state they would give up their tax exempt status to help these mothers pay for the children.

That’s right. I am against abortion but my position is (a) I don’t like abortion therefore I wont be aborting any babies and I will do what I can to help people in my sphere of influence if I can and (b) lets as a society go with what works. Making it illegal feels righteous and fools some into thinking we are living in the city of God. But if anyone could have driven abortion from the land, GW should have been able to especially when he owned the government for 2 years. Better to solve the problem in a positive way with family planning, education and encouraging adoption and making it easier to do. Millions of families want babies each year and cannot get them because of adoption laws that are a nightmare to navigate. Let's match up these loving parents with babies that need loving parents. Its hard but trying to stomp out abortion with righteous speeches and laws is just not working.

Meanwhile let's get this issue off the table for our next president to worry about and find how who of this group will roll up their sleeves and be the president for the people and work to make our country better and the lives of the people who live here better. The first candidate, male, female or other, black, white or other that can do that gets my vote.

And don’t bother answering this post with a bunch of emotional insults and dumb junk about if Obama takes crack or if Palin's daughter is a slut. Substance walks the walk and stupid mud slinging should flop in this dialog. We are hiring a president to do a job. I don’t care if in their spare time they worship kangaroos or sleep with wilderbeasts. If he or she can do the job, they are hired.

you might be a hypocrite;
if you think the church obama attended is relevant, but the church of Palin has nothing to do with her "judgment"
you might be a hypocritical redneck!

You really do not have any idea of how government works, do you? Bush doesn't have the power to outlaw abortion. What he does have is the power to name judges to the Supreme Court, and if they are confirmed by the Senate, THEY have the power to outlaw abortion. Bush appointed two justices who are likely to vote to either limit or reverse Roe v. Wade. That makes four of the nine Justices willing to do so. Which makes the next appointment to the Supreme Court absolutely vital to both sides of this controversy.

Track Palin, Sarah's teenage son who is shipping off to Iraq on September 11th, apparently joined the Army to avoid jail.
Most of Track's senior year was spent in Michigan, which is unusual. Why would this amazing example of family values let their oldest live in Michael Moore's homestate? Word is he was not welcome, personna non grata, in Wasilla, Alaska.
It is rumored that Track vandalized school property; he is said to have severed the brake lines of a school bus, endangering the lives of elementary school children. And this has something to do with "Troopergate"
Can't wait for the report.
You people truly have no shame.
