CHANGE CHICAGO STYLE

Body count. In the last six months

Chicago - 292 killed (murdered)

Iraq - 221

Chicago is a combat zone.

Who is in charge?(The leadership in Illinois)

Senator Barack Obama (Democrat)
Senator Dick Durbin (Democrat)
Representative Jesse Jackson Jr.(Democrat)
Governor. Rod Blogojevich (Democrat)
House leader Mike Madigan (Democrat)
Attorney. General. Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike),(Democrat)
Mayor Richard M. Daley (son of former Mayor Richard J. Daley)(Democrat)

Of course they're all blaming each other. Why?

They can't blame Republicans, there aren't any!

State pension fund $44 Billion in debt, worst in country. Cook County (Chicago)

Sales tax 10.25% highest in country.(Look it up up if you want).

Chicago school system one of the worst in country.

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois.

And he says he is going to 'fix' Washington politics?

Hey Tina you'd better watch your back. If Palin does Palin better than you, then you might be out of a job.

hey Ralph,
No chance of that. Tina plays Palin far better. The nice thing about Tina is that when she has finished her act, everybody can sit back and laugh. When Palin finishes her act, people just fall back, groan, whimper, or vomit!

I hope it is not completely one sided. Comedy shoud lampoon all sides. Not only that, if Palin is picked on too much she will get a lot of sympathy votes because she was picked on.

I hope SNL destroys her. Saving the country from a Bush 3rd term is more important than being funny.

Hey,
When you're on TV don't you have to memorize lines and remember where to stand?

she'll have that down. But she may actually have to interact with people with brains instead of gun racks.

If this is true, it is good information to have. So why is it appearing on a blog and not coming out of her mouth when asked what makes her qualified?

You can't deny that the entire campaign dropped the ball on this front. She's qualified because "Alaska is closest to Russia". Too bad you weren't working with the campaign when this all started.

Palin again shows a lot of class and courage to walk into the lion's den. Barack laments the effect of FOX News on his polling. Whining about one media source that at least attempts to lean to the middle and doesn't cater to his coronation. McCain goes on Letterman after Dave cries about being bumped for a higher cause. The left has once again shown their true colors (yellow) in the face of any disagreement. All of you on the left can be proud of your leadership!

McCain now views Palin as a negative influence on his campaign. After some feeble interviews with Katie Couric of CBS and a less than convincing debate performance, plus some incredibly ill-informed statements and barely comprehensible responses to reporters' questions, Palin is no longer helping to attract women and independent voters to the Republican ticket.

Can you please point me to your source for this: "McCain now views Palin as a negative influence on his campaign." I'd like to read the rest of it. Thanks.
