I think we should allow left wing blogs and SNL skits to shape our views of right wing candidates.

Oh wait, that would be stupid.

Let's hope Biden brings up FDR and TV again. Oh wait, most lefties don't know what I'm talking about because it was brushed under the rug. I wonder if Palin would have said something similar it would be brushed under the rug.
I wonder if Palin would have bought her house through the help of a convicted kick back scheme felon...if that would be ignored.

Oh wait. The media is biased towards the left.

silly me, I forgot.

Just too easy.
When a nitwit's on the ticket, you can only do two things:
1) Look at how those who chose her view you - surely they must think you're an idiot too.
2) How do you respond when someone insults you, well, you certainly don't vote for 'em.

"That’s why I say like every American I am ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out but ultimately what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to shore up our economy..helping the.. oh it’s gotta 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 reigning in spending hasgotto accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans and trade we’ve got to see trade as opportunity not as competititive scary thing..."

THIS TRANSCRIPTION OF PALIN'S ANSWER IN AN INTERVIEW W/COURIC WAS AS FAR AS I COULD GET BEFORE MY BRAIN EXPLODED..

Relity check for Sarah: You in the wrong league! You belong in the Minor League! You did o.k. for yourself and for a chesen few in Alaska as a rogue Governor. Down there you can field dress
a moose and feel right at home with your hunting buddies! Go back before it is too late. Do not overstay your welcome, for you might risk being welcomed back at your home state!

As of 1:05 am Monday, the word Palin appears seven times on the trib home page. Nice to see how much the GOP's #2 has gotten inside their heads. Keep bashing, everytime they do, it's one more vote for McCain

Moroon. I quote the article:

"conservative columnist Kathleen Parker, who called on Palin to step down"

Even conservatives can see how incompetent this silly goose is. Duh.

What is this - a news story or column?

And does Mark Silva classify the political affiliations of every columnist - conservative, liberal? If that's the case, Silva, what is Clarence Page, a liberal columnist? Or better, what are you - liberal? I expect the labels everytime you mention a columnist. I'll be watching.

Say, Mark Silva, are you going to write about SNL's Fred Armisen's impersonation of Obama? Heck, wasn't that funny even though Armisen is not black - he's half Asian? Can't wait to read that.

One thing for sure, this is another PR story for SNL. Wow, it's so amazing Tina Fey looks like Governor Palin. My gosh, this will be good lampooning (sarcasm).

The media now is giving the week by week play on Fey's Palin impersonation. I'm sure Fey will be in line for an Oscar.

And we know how Fey feels about Palin - she doesn't want to more impersonations after Nov. 4. Wow, now Fey is one objective, fence walking comedian.

I love it when the media is so objective and writes interesting, insightful and valuable news stories about our candidates.

Keep up the good work there, Silva.

Hello? Were you watching the same interview as the rest of us? Could you honestly see this woman as president?

All gaffes aside, the glaring difference between Biden and Palin is that, whether you like him or not, Biden has an extensive body of work from which to judge him. By contrast we still know very little about Palin (thanks in part to McCain), and what little we do know does not inspire much confidence.

Let's face it, she may be smart but right now she is looking pretty clueless (in fact, she's making W look down-right scholarly right now) and no amount of cramming will save her from Biden in their debate this week.

Don't worry, Earnest, the market will take care of the biased leftist media. People will not watch Fey make fun of Palin. Instead they will reject SNL's blatantly unfair portrait by refusing in masse to watch the show, SNL will have it's lowest ratings ever! Network advertisers will jump ship, cutting their revenues, causing SNL to change their tune to a more even handed style of parody. Magazines, newspapers, and internet outlets will refuse to cover such an unfair lampooning of such a brilliant woman on such a low rated show, and no one will read their articles. In turn, their advertisers will jump ship, causing the various media outlets to change the way they do business, only covering items that YOU want to know about. I love America!

Anyone who watches snl for his/her amusement is a loss for a vote in any case. maybe david letterman could play the part of Gov. Palin's father and paris hilton could play the part of the 4 month old retarded child. that would be about snl's level.

It is pretty difficult to watch her and hear her responses to questions - hoping she can give an intelligent on point response yet all the while knowing it will be a train wreck.

Initially this was amusing. Then became annoying and finally mutated to feeling pity for her. She has no business being put into this position. Why leave her with this humuliating legacy?

Although I have empathy for her plight there is no way she should have any close proximity to being the second in command of the country. She is definitely not an asset for McCain in his quest for the presidency.

One day she will look back and regret the entire situation and the harm she has done to herself and to her family.

I saw Gov. Palin being interviewed in a Philadelphia sub shop yesterday. To me she looked like a regular mom with a three or four month old special needs baby, a bunch of other kids, including an expectant 17-year-old. She was trying to buy a couple of philly cheese-steak subs. Okay, granted, she's a lousy interview subject and doesn't seem to know much about national or international issues, but she does appear to be nice and sporty when conducting herself in a sub shop. The point I'm trying to make: seeing Sarah Palin in that sub shop made me hungry for a philly cheese steak sub.

Oh yeah we know about Biden. F Troop Biden. Oh yeah and let's not forget Obama and his extensive resume.

Do you think she has enough self-awareness to even realize what a danger she is to her family and her nation? I don't think she does. If she had any understanding of her own limitations, she never would have signed on to the McCain trainwreck. I feel sorry for her kids, but not for her.

Consider this, friends:
Palin is obviously a puppet candidate.
If McCain/Palin are elected, Palin will be a puppet vice president.
If McCain is out of the picture,
Palin becomes president.
Puppet president.
Who will the puppet-masters be?
Answer that question, and you'll know who you'll be "electing" with a vote for McCain/Palin.
Hmmm.

In fact, that gives me a great idea for a Halloween costume. Dress as John McCain, and wear a Sarah Palin puppet on your hand.

Have fun with that one, fellas. You're welcome.
