Well John McCain you may have just pulled off a "Hat Trick" as we say in Hockey games across Alaska -and the rest of the hockey world- when a player pulls off three goals during a single game.
I pretty much figured you were a goner ---and so was your campaign...
The whole campaign pretty much appeared to be hanging-on by only a string -and being kept alive by being on the Heart n' Lung Machine, until you made one of the best, if not "The Best Move" of your life, and picked our Governor Sarah Palin as your choice for a Vice Presidential running mate.
Now it appears voters across America are magnetically drawn to her beautiful personality, her shrewd wisdom, gutsey manner, and keen sense of judgement, not to mention how many men out there are drawn to her great looks and easy going charm.
Now voters are going back and taking another look at you, John McCain. Can you do the job? Can you get Results that benifit the average working person? How much Power are you going to give to Sarah Palin? And what good things could take place with a "Positive Leader" in the Vice President's Office?
Back to the fun stuff...
Ok guys, you better hurry to snap up those Vogue Magazine Issues featuring Sarah Palin in Carharts before they become collector's items.
Let the fun begin.... Voters you get to choose.
What's it going to be?
Obamadin, or McPalin in 2008
You have GOT to be kidding! People are attracted to the scandal surrounding Sarah Palin. What's more, I think we're only seeing the beginning!
My only fear about all the attention Palin is getting is that it will allow McCain to stroll underneath the radar, just as Bush did four years ago when John Kerry was busy engaging with Cheney.
Palin may be screaming out to be ragged upon, but let's not forget who is at the top of the ticket too!
McCain thinks the voters are stupid enough to vote for him because he chose a pretty running mate.
And that is his "Best Move,"?
I guess you people really don't care about the issues. A pretty woman with a gun will do it for you every time
I personally do not find her personality attractive, but I am sure her being anti-abortion, pro-war, pro-environmental destruction and "Christian," lolololo, will be appealing to people such as yourself. With a little luck, she will get some books banned.
Voters across America are saying to themselves -
"Does McCain really think I am that stupid?"
Unfortunately, the answer is - Yes
More unfortunate thing is - he is probably right...
Disclaimer: This is not to say that Obama thinks any differently...
Thanks. Although, I have to say, no one has addressed me by my family name since I was in English boarding school
You can say whatever you want about Sarah's good looks, but it is her performance and "Results" since she got into the office of Governor, that has almost every Alaskan being thrilled with her as our Servant in Public Office.
She did everything but sick the Federal Marshals after former Alaska Republican Governor Murkowski when he basically "stole" the jet he bought (during his term). Her first act as Governor was to put the jet he was still riding in at the time, on E-Bay auction. I am still surprized she didn't file charges to have him arrested at traveling around the world in a last minute effort to use the jet while promoting his own private companies to Asian governments.
And in reference to McCain picking Sarah Palin as his VP "being his best move," what else can you call an eleven point instant jump in the polls (USA TODAY POLL), immediately after the the RNC---I mean lets face it he had a practically a "dead" campaign before Sarah ran away from Alaska to join the Circus in Washington.
I too have been sick and tired of the Bush/Cheney lousy performance in office and even more importantly, embarressed with how the rest of the world looks now at the United States.
History will probably list Cheney and Bush as the two worst politicians ever to hold that Important Public Office!
I also remain slightly angry with McCain (I am NOT a Republican by the way!) after he threw-in the towel in 2000 after the South Carolina Primary (Bush reportedly spent 100 million to beat him there),and let goofy George and his crooked-shooting VP take over the White House.
Oh well we only have to wait until January and those two will be tossed out.
I only hope that all the canidates in this 2008 election stick to issues that the average American faces and who ever gets in, I hope and Pray, that they do a good job and raise America back to its former position in the world's eyes as a Great Place to live and that we get back to being a world leader in the Liberties, Rights, and Freedom offered to citizens.
All my best,

I have to agree, she was basically unknown for her political views until now, and this has turned the upcoming election into a tailspin. Very shrewd move. Interesting that her announcement was made so late in the race. Without a doubt, this is going to be interesting to say the least.
She won't even speak to the press she's got soo many bad things to atone for.

Now he tells us...Normally, I would not attack someone when they are down especially with terminal illness.However, this is just self serving grand standing.What is wrong with someone who is so full of himself?If it wasn't for Sarah Palin, he would have lost even bigger in the 2008 election.It was...
