If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.

An itchy finger on the remote – and by a former supporter.

The first debate will go ahead tonight with John McCain actually attending – how will it go, we have yet to see. That will be the headline news and not just in the USA. The world will be watching – I would love to see those numbers.

But there is another debate looming and that debate will be with Palin and Biden. And after watching more and more of Palin being interviewed – I genuinely feel sorry for her. Not because of what she believes in – but because she will be going up against Joe Biden – and he is a debater, and he is a long, long term congressman and politician – she simply isn’t. Joe Biden gaffes – everyone KNOWS that Joe Biden gaffes – it is one of the things people actually truly like about him. He tells it like it is.

But as you will see in the linked story, Kathleen Parker, a former supporter of Palin wants her to step down.

Only Palin can save McCain, her party, and the country she loves. She can bow out for personal reasons, perhaps because she wants to spend more time with her newborn. No one would criticize a mother who puts her family first.

Do it for your country.

Just what does this say – conservatives are coming to a realisation that the pick McCain made is wrong, very wrong – Mitt Romney would have been much, much better – but McCain – in his short-termism, decided to go for a woman, because he thought, wrongly, that women would support her because of the gender – that has been proven wrong.

Sarah Palin is a “small town girl” – that much is obvious. She may be a nice person, I can’t see it myself but you never know. Nut with one thing over-riding and apparent with her is that she is the very youth that John McCain isn’t. This could be one and only time that the American voter will be taking Palin into consideration when crossing the ballot. John McCain is getting on in years – and she could, statistically, become president – that means people will have to focus on that and not Just John McCain.

Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.

No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, I’ve been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I’ve also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.

I am an Obama follower – so I do want her to stay on the ticket – I think that will focus people more than anything not to vote for McCain, not because McCain is wrong for America, but because McCain/Palin is doubly wrong for America.

If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.

    Uh, Will: Romney would’ve have been a terrible pick for VP, though nobody can touch Palin’s awfulness. Have you read his speech from the RNC? If not, check it out — that guy has lost his mind!

    Yeah – I watched it, couldn’t believe what he said so read the transcript, Brett – he truly is bonkers – but that said, all the Republicans are.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
