Palin: McCain's biggest mistake was sheltering me from press

Dec 22, 2008 Full story: www.huffingtonpost.com 684

Sarah Palin frequently disparaged the political press when campaigning with John McCain. But she tells Human Events' John Gizzi in an interview that she wishes she had spent more time talking to the media:

The biggest mistake made was that I could have called more shots on this: the opportunities that were not seized to speak to more Americans via media. I was not allowed to do very many interviews, and the interviews that I did were not necessarily those I would have chosen.

child molesters arent so bad.
I met a 9 year old girl who wanted to have sex.
My lil twinkler is so small i figured we would be a good match.
She was mean and laughed at my little one incher.
So its not always the mans fault.
her 8 year old brother was much better and we have a good time.
He liked my lil twinkler.

<quoted text>Your desire to label others with your judgmental name calling, suggests that you probably have some major mental problems. I am not a criminal, so therefore I don’t need bailed out of jail. You don’t know me, but yet you judge me. You are a perfect example of liberalism. You just earned yourself the “loser of the year” award.
HOW DARE YOU JUDGE ME WHILE I'M JUDGING YOU!!!

You're the one who said gays are perverts.
You're the one who said rape victims are liars.
You're the one who said that other user was abusing the welfare system.
You don't know any rape victims. But that didn't stop you from judging them. You don't know that other person, but that didn't stop you from juding her. And you probably don't know any gays, but that didn't stop you from juding them.

If you don't like being judged, then maybe you shouldn't judge other people.

In my own opinion, the persons responsible for McCain losing the presidency were: the Republican Party and McCain himself. The liberal Democrats twisted the truth and made it appear that McCain was a carbon copy of President Bush and, if elected, would supposedly be a continuation of President Bush. McCain’s age was used against him, even though no one knows when their time to die will come. McCain’s own military service was used against him, even though he is a decorated war hero.
Right after Obama defeated Hillary, the Democrats starting playing the race card and McCain shied away in fear that he would be called a racist if he stayed tough on Obama. The Republican Party should have known that the liberal Democrats would use McCain’s age and his association with Bush to undermine the voting public. McCain should have stayed tough on Obama despite the fact the liberal Democrats were playing the race card.
Sarah Palin is not the reason McCain lost. McCain was behind in the polls when he introduced her to the world as his running mate, and that very night she energized the Republican Party and brought back the hope and enthusiasm that many had lost. In the days following, she drew large crowds at her and McCain’s speaking engagements. And it was then, that the liberal Democrats started attacking Sarah and her family. McCain was a lame duck long before Sarah came on board. The Democrats knew if they didn’t somehow stop Sarah’s popularity, McCain would be the next President of the United States. For them to do that, they attacked her reputation, her family, even her children, and used her simple and straightforward way with words to paint her as being dumb. Sarah Palin was the most intelligent one on the two tickets. If the Republican Party had nominated someone other than McCain, I believe we would have a Republican going into the White House in a few days.
Speaking of the liberals attacking Sarah Palin’s children brings me to another subject: Same-sex marriage and child molestation. Like Sarah Palin, I have been attacked on this thread for saying ‘if same-sex marriage becomes legal, then child molesters should not be punished, either’. I have learned that ignorant people hardly ever see the truth, because they are blinded by their own ignorance.
In the USA, traditional marriage (between one man and one woman) allows teenagers of the opposite sex to get married. If same-sex marriage should be legalized, and an adult man married a teenage boy, then that would be the equation to child molestation. Some states allow 14 years to get married, as mentioned on the website below.
Only ignorant people would argue that same-sex marriage is not equal to child molestation. Heck, if same-sex marriage becomes legal, what would stop people from marrying a dog, or a cow, or anything else?

Wait...why are you ignoring an adult man marrying a teenage girl? Is a grown man marrying a teenage girl not as wrong because she is a teenager? And actually,in order to molest someone...you must HAVE SEX WITH THEM. Marrying someone is not the equivalent of sex. Yes,marriage usually comes with sex...but it is only until the sex happens that it is molestation. Sex and marriage are in no way related.

If by "ignorant" you mean "knows the definition of the word 'consent'", sure. Same sex marriage is between two consenting adults, child molestation isn't.
