"More of the same."

I know Democrats were chanting that slogan alongside McCain's name last week, but it seems Palin fits right in as well. This "fiscal conservative" left her former small town of Wasilla with $20 million in debt to fund her hockey-mom pet project: an ice arena. Scarier still is that she used eminent domain to grab the land for the project from a private contractor, and the city later lost their eminent domain case in court.

Vetoing wind farms and clean coal? Tsk tsk.

We all know she's got a major ethics investigation underway because she abused her power to push her safety commissioner out of office. What people didn't know is that she's done it before, firing Wasilla's police chief and library director when she was mayor because they didn't support her re-election.

Even on simple things like "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, Palin proves herself to be an airhead:

Q: Are you offended by the phrase ?Under God? in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?

SP: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I?ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
Unfortunately Sarah, the founding fathers died almost two generations before Francis Bellamy wrote the Pledge in 1892, and "Under God" wasn't introduced until 1954. It's a grade school level response that illustrates her lack of knowledge of basic facts about our own country's history, but I think it just scratches the surface of how ignorant she is.

Corruption? She was heavily endorsed by Ted Stevens and Don Young, and she did support the bridge to nowhere before it became a political liability. But her corruption extends beyond that, blocking environmental protections for polar bears and salmon because it would endanger drilling and mining operations. We still haven't seen where the ticket stands on drilling in ANWR, since McCain opposes it but Palin supports it.

One nice thing about a delayed/shortened convention is less praise/celebration of Palin's coronation while the press gets more time to vet her.

I love election years (seems like it's like that all the time in the US). As soon as someone becomes a candidate they suddenly become the most important person on Earth and a ton of dirt seems to pile up. Both Republicans and Democrats try to outdo each other never once listening to what a candidate may actually be saying. Black vs white, never any gray.

Both sides are hilarious. Politics lol.

Small towns have bonds for projects like the ice hockey arena or roads... projects that need to be done for the community and such that they can't afford but will pay for itself over time.

Most people, and probably you, did not know about the "under God" quote on the money and who was responsible for it until you read that in one of your left wing blogs. You're really digging with that one. I love your partial news clip.

Attacking her for wanting to open ANWR will not be a good political move for you guys, about 50% of the country is for it. Also, I don't think it's going to be healthy to attack McCain for not picking someone that agrees with him 100% on every issue, considering how many issue Obama and Biden clash on.

jpeyton - shutup, you're annoying as hell.

Congrats on your being drunk before! How do I know he's drunk, are you kidding me? If it was just audio and not video I would swear I was overhearing a conversation at a bar at closing time. I think I've given that same speech myself about a hundred times around 2am.

I didn't know if there was real information that he was drunk besides speculation. Thats why I asked.

And that's pretty much what TechAZ gave you: speculation.

Yes, I was not with him side by side. It is speculation, but really....he looked drunk as shit. I'm not attacking him or anything, actually thought it was pretty funny.

So even when there are non-tabloid attacks at Palin's credibility, you guys defer and deflect?

I guess there isn't much to defend. She's a Republican through and through.
