Very powerful video

Palin says New Hampshire is part of the “North West” and “just gets it ~wink~” and from the crowds response they sure do.

This ad is incredibly moving and highlights the flat-earth era we would revert to under McCain/Palin.

Philadelphians are a tough crowd and they can smell bullshit a mile away.  They are difficult for politicians to attach themselves to, but once you do they’re loyalty is endless.

The crowds booing of Palin is Pennsylvania’s natural reaction to the hideous tones that Palin has bought to bear on the McCain campaign.  Basically, these fans said that they were not going to aid and abet this idiot with hijacking the election.

Looks like America’s winking, folksy, down home girl’s novelty has worn off.  Sarah Palin not so loved by hockey goers as some would like us to think. 

Doesn’t get much funnier than this!  Apparently Sarah Palin has never seen Russia from Alaska ?  So what does that say about her Foreign Policy experience? 

Apparently no Governor has ever visited Little Diomede, which is the area of Alaska from which you can see Russia.  There are no roads to this part of Alaska, the only way to get there is by helicopter and it’s population is 150, there are no hospitals, and the poverty rate is above 40%.  The only person who has visited this small area of Alaska is Senator Ted Stevens.  Check out this link to read more.

Why aren’t Alaskan’s being heard in the Main Stream Media?  I saw very little coverage of the “Alaska Women Reject Palin Rally” , which turned out to be one of the largest Rallies in Alaskan history with about 1500 people showing up.  Alaskans rallied again yesterday, this time to hold Sarah Palin Accountable and almost 2000 people turned out. I would love to see more news coverage of this.  Videos courtesy of the Mudflats and you tube.

Hop on over to Adventures in AK for more pictures from this Rally.

Sarah Palin

Memorizing past statements by Henry Kissinger

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.
