McCain may be able to live with the consequences of his ill considered,by-the-seat-of-his pants,off the cuff mistakes and do so without complaint.
But we can not and we will not!!!

The consequences he's living with here are thrilled Christofascists and AIPAC zealots. That means everything to his candidacy. He ain't dumping Palin.

If McCain is President, it will not be HE who lives with the consequences, it will be American Soldiers and Marines, American taxpayers, and the American people!

Even Governor Palin's personal image is causing her problems. Earlier this morning, Republican eyebrows were raised when a photograph emerged of Governor Palin wearing disco attire featuring a micro-mini-skirt and a breathtakingly low-cut décolleté as she steadied herself on a bar while teetering on shiny, black patent leather platforms fitted with vertiginous stiletto heels that could have been purchased at Victoria's Secret.
Governor Palin's colorful image plus her interesting background and rising political profile will certainly remain subjects of intense public interest for a long time to come.

Exactly. We cannot afford a "Shoot from the hip" President. Major decisions need to be made in the coolness of soberthought, AFTER listening to advice from a number of points of view. For the last seeven plus years e have had a "Decider" on the throne, who listens only to people who agree with his preconceived ideas. We caannot afford one minute more of this type of decision-making, but we have four and a half months more of it to endure, and the stupidity-directed thinking may involve us in three simultaneous wars. I WISH the Congress had developed some cojones and impesched the decider and his Svengali long ago.

You can thank that traitor Nancy Pelosi for blocking Kucinich's articles of impeachment against the criminals in the White House.

There is an Alaskan blog by Andrew Halcro, who is clearly a Palin detractor (he ran against her for governor). He is suggesting inappropriate involvement of relatives in Palin's administration. The comments section is an oppo researcher's delight - names, situations, and possible areas for research that have not yet hit the media.
Coming into question is the extent of Todd Palin's involvement in Sarah's governing, and the appropriateness of it. For example, he has been invited to sit in on meetings. He is copied on emails that have been withheld from FOIAs as "executive privilege", yet he is not a staff member of the governor. There are additional firings that appear to be personally motivated, and the allegation that Todd is operating as an unregistered lobbyist (all the more reason he should not be copied on executive privilege emails).
This is not a vetting process that one could finish in hours or days, given the amount of stuff that came up. When mayor of Wasilla, she supposedly used her staff for campaigning purposes as she ran for governor. A city newspaper picked up on it and Todd Palin threw a fit at the city employees who responded to the public information request by the paper, saying they should not have released the information.
I strongly suggest reading this blog and wading through the comments section --- it provides many leads for more interesting "understanding" of this too-quickly selected candidate.

It leally shows that he has lack of judgement, mrs. Pelin is a women and I believe that he should have vet her better, a someone that is running for a High office should set a moral standar, and also him self. We need someone with strong values to show a good example to the new generation of our country.

It comes down to this, if that dumb son of a bitch would've ran the same campaign he did in 2000 now, he would have had a pretty good shot.
He screwed up big time.

Obama just got the shit kicked out of him. Palin mopped the floor with him. I wish her nothing but the soundest defeat in history, but she really mopped the floor with Obama... didn't even have to stretch the truth to do it either.
Astoundingly strong performance.

"didn't even have to stretch the truth to do it either."
We must have watched different speeches.
all I saw was one bald faced lie after another topped with absolutely ZERO substance.
What I expected from someone that has no experience and who's only plan is lie continuously for the next 4 years while raping the country blind.
The MSM is making her out to be the best thing since sliced bacon and refuses to tell the facts about her.
We are getting exactly what we deserve in Nov.
Another stolen election, another 4 years of WORSE THAN BUSH and I can not believe this country will survive it.
My wife & I have decided if these lunatics steal this election then we are moving out of the country, probably Cayman Islands or New Zealand.

No. Sorry. I forgot to come and update this. I missed a salient section of her speech the first time through. When I watched it over again without the interruptions, yes, she did stretch the truth pretty good there in one section particularly.
I agree. Worse than Bush.
Palin really scored for McCain last night. Luckily not nearly as many people saw it as saw Obama.

The hall had a lot of empty seats. The cheers were all choreographed and amplified. They always do that. Makes them sound united, and like bigger threats than they are.
All that. Just between Giuliani and Palin they got back a whole lot of lost votes. They hit Obama really hard on his weakest parts. He's been leaning way out over the yawning chasm for those Republicans and Independents and he had them last week. Palin just yanked most of them right back. McCain couldn't have done that.

Obama will never get died in the wool Rethuglicans to vote for him short of banana republic Uzi induced forced voting at the booth.
His only chance is to get the beaten down Democratic Base which is sick and damn tired of limp wristed namby pamby reach across the isle bullshit, which is just a front for the fact that Democrats have also sold the country out to Big Oil & the top 2%.
That top 2% makes 90% of the money so Democrats just like their more insane counterparts have and will continue to throw the bottom 98% right under the bus.
Coming out and telling the FACTS about what has been going on the last 8 years combined with IMPEACHMENT and he is IN.
Anything less and he has no chance.
As if he has any chance to begin with, hard to win when the other side will say anything, do anything, lie about everything, has the MSM fully behind them propping them up and covering up all the lies and crimes and then top that off with a fully rigged voting system just for good measure and a democratic congress that flatly refuses to even discuss the FACT that 2 elections have already been stolen.
