This is the Mccain camp’s excuse for Palin’s slump:

As discussed below, the McCain-Palin campaign attributes all of Sen. McCain’s gravity in recent polls to the economy. But new Quinnipiac and Pew polls provide evidence to the contrary. Specifically, Pew finds that 51% of Americans now believe that Palin is unqualified, up from 37% after her announcement. (Pew’s Andrew Kohut writes: “There is a clear correlation between views of Palin’s qualifications and support for McCain, which may be hurting the GOP candidate. Fewer people see her as qualified to become president, and the balance of opinion toward Palin has grown more negative since early September.”)

McCain, seen getting on a plane (The Amelia Earhart 1) with his wife, Cindy, is prepping his master-debating skill. 

Anonymous sources have revealed that the emphasis of subtle, but effective, hand movements, when master-debating, will help McCain bring tonight’s debate to a climax.  Staffers expect McCain to be so physically wiped out, to the point of shivering, that he will require a towel to soak up the sweat from the exertion from master-debating.

McCain decides to debate

It is frightening to think that Mrs. Palin would unflinchingly support Israel, or any of our allies, beyond the point of nuclear destruction, without the notion of scrutiny or diplomacy.  Sarah’s colloquialisms may come off as ‘foksy’, but even the hardcore conservatives are waking up and smelling the java, when it comes to her candidacy. 

Palin is the executive -which gives her more experience than any other candidate in the race, by the way- of a State that has a financial surplus because of taxes on strategic commodities like oil.  Oil has risen dramatically in price and she has been able to buy off the electorate in her State to the tune of about $3,500 per person this year.  Alaska, despite the Mccain camps refutations, is the biggest panhandler in the Union when it comes to Gov’t handouts.  

Palin has not had to overcome adversity when it comes to political crisis.  She is not tested.  This makes her political abrasiveness even more curious.  Where did she become so cynical?  The Good-Old-Boy system that she rails against is still operating.  She has merely done what the Republican party is doing to George Bush – pretend that they were never part of the problem when all along they enabled the cisis’ of today. 

Palin is privileged -at about 3:30 into the video she says hello on behalf of her son to his “former nanny”.  They own an airplane, for goodness sake.  She asks for divine intervention for a $30 billion dollar pipeline. 

This Governor has never wet her chops in Washington and instead wails about changing the Capitol. With this week’s economic crisis, Palin’s irrelevance has been defined.  Her lack of Washington diplomacy now looks to be a hindrance rather than a help.  Her intestinal reactions would only compliment McCain’s hysteria and put us all on the bridge-to-nowhere.

From Joe Salzone

Sarah Palin is not unqualified to be vice president because she’s a she. Sarah Palin is unqualified to be vice president because Sarah Palin is not qualified to be vice president.

“With respect to the debates it is my belief that this is exactly the time when the American people need to hear from the person who in roughly 40 days will be responsible for this mess,” he said. “I think it is going to be part of the president’s job to deal with more than one thing at once.

TPM:

Not Just Rick Davis

The guy John McCain has chosen to manage his presidential transition was lobbying for Fannie Mae until this month.

And from McCain …

McCain has labeled Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae as prime culprits in creating the financial storm that has roiled Wall Street and Washington.“At the center of the problem were the lobbyists, politicians, and bureaucrats who succeeded in persuading Congress and the administration to ignore the festering problems at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,” he said last week in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Oh, dear…McCain is really losing the plot.  This election might not even be close

Obama can nail the Presidency if he ties McCain to Bush and putting Social Security in the hands of a broken Wall St.

CNN:

It’s a debate over the program that could resurface as a major issue in the closing weeks of the campaign given the wild swings in financial markets.

“If my opponent had his way, the millions of Floridians who rely on it would’ve had their Social Security tied up in the stock market this week. Millions would’ve watched as the market tumbled and their nest egg disappeared before their eyes,” he said.

“I know Sen. McCain is talking about a ‘casino culture’ on Wall Street — but the fact is, he’s the one who wants to gamble with your life savings and that is not going to happen when I’m president. When I’m president, we’re not going to gamble with Social Security.”

Keep it up, Barack and Joe.  McCain and Falin will have no response to this other than negative attacks and they are already being demonized for their low-road tactics.  There is no way that Harriet Quayle will be able to make a cohesive argument against McCain’s support for reckless privatization of SS..
