Bernard, you're certifiable, which is good. I haven't laughed that hard since someone called Biden a foreign policy expert.

The only reason I can think of for McCain to have picked her is to grab a slice of the PUMA vote. That particular surge will last about 2 weeks, tops, long enough for every single Hillary supporter in the country to realize that Palin is nothing compared to Hillary's experience, intellect, and drive - and she's a raving right-to-lifer and homophobe to boot. It'll *never* work. No. Chance.

Also, she's not that good-looking. She's not ugly, certainly. But she's not as good-looking as Dana Perino, with whom she has much more in common than with Hillary.

Also! - wasn't it McCain who criticized Barack for being a good-looking, inexperienced celebrity? Irony much, John?

Oh Guest,

I think you overestimate the GOP's base.

here is a comment on a blog entry from Taki's Magzine . they are paleo-right in case one does not know . i can not make up my mind if he is another aspiring comedy writer or a true believer ..

Prolife, pro small business, pro gun, pro drilling everywhere, and anti gay marriage, I have to vote for the ticket and hope the Good Lord calls old John home to his reward.

Norwegian moose is indeed delicious.

The reindeer, not so much. It's the big chewy red noses that turn me off.

Norway is the US's #11 foreign debtholder @ $43.3b.
I say do 'em.

ANY kind of moose is good. MY republican friends are positively glowing from the Mccain vp pick. I tell them they STILL have Mccain, whom they hate, but they can NOW vote for him with a clear conscience---he has a woman vp.

I would say that McCain's health is precarious enough that Palin might end up the Presidential candidate.

Leave out the L in her name and you got PAIN.

Aren't there are lot of Norwegian lumberjacks?
I hear they're OK.

Yeah, but they sleep all night and they work all day, so what fun are they?

so far governor palin seems to have several rather large problems. aside from the obvious issue of her complete lack of readiness for the position of president (as karl rove pointed out with respect to governor kaine for democratic vp) and the investigation into the firing of the public safety commissioner. another potential bombshell is that the down-syndrome baby she and mccain are parading around may in fact be her underage daughter's. the alaska government online photo albums have been pulled but there are photographs of palin available on line from february and march in which she is clearly not seven months pregnant.

mccain has finally completely lost his marbles.

Gov Palin's baby DOES have Down's syndrome and she and her husband decided to have the baby in spite of knowing during her prganancy that the expected baby could have Down's Syndrome.

So I expect her to be against Capital Punishment ( state sanctioned murder ) and against War ( killing of innocent civilians ) otherwise, she will be another one of those conservative republican hypocrites.

darrelplant: Yes, I absolutely do. ( In any case, Sen Biden was never and is not my choice of VP anyway ).
If one believes in sanctity of life, one can not claim to support life in a certain situation and condone killing in another in MY way of thinking.

Posted by Rupa Shah at August 30, 2008 02:53 PM

darrelplant: I want to clarify what I wrote. Just because Sen Biden is a Catholic, what views he holds on abortion, war and capital punishment is his prerogative. My objection is to people condoning killing in one situation but being against it in another. If Sen Biden is against abortion but is for war and capital punishment, THAT WOULD BE HYPOCRICY.

As a Norwegian, I do look forward to getting rid of the War (the second in the world that is). For too long have the previous generations been harping on about Germany and the glourious Resistance to the Occupation (while not remembering the round up of jews, treatment of young girls falling in love whit German soldiers etc).

I look forward to retreat into the mountains and the fjords, set up base and have weaponry and equipment air-dropped by our Comrades to the East.

I have only one thing to say: Bring 'em on!

PS. There are way to many moose here anyway. DS
