From AmericaPANIC: Will Sarah Palin quit this week?

Get on record now.

I say yes.

Read the full piece here.

And McCain's new Veep pick?

Mr. Economy, Mitt Romney.

The housing crash, and the $700 billion bailout, changed everything.

Not at all. She's going to debate Biden on Thursday:

Next up: Biden and Palin debate in St. Louis

And teach true believers in "democracy" like Keefer just how flawed the idea of "democracy" (or mob rule as I like to call it) really is.

America is supposed to be a Republic - a nation of laws and a government constrained by the Constitution.

The next time someone mentions "democracy" in the context of America you should punch them in the face.

No she will not quit. McCain thinks he's got it in the bag, no matter what the rest of the debates are like. He was strong against Obama in the first debate, so he's confident enough to go with the status quo.

i read in the english news paper the daily mail i think, Biden was going to claim an illness and Hillary was going to step in, so, another idea stolen by the Republicans and presented before the democrats can annouce theirs. no wonder bush thinks it's okay to steal from the working people and give it to wall street for more stock market gambling games.

sorry, mccain wins said...


CNN poll only involved 524 people.

vs, over 420,000 votes on drudge

One cool thing was mostly women liked Obama, kinda like you guys, women, don't understand the economy, don't understand foreign affairs, like to watch Oprah, you know......women.....

Will McCain get rid of his VP pick?

Will Obama get rid of his?

Incredible times we live in. I got pop-corn!

The DA said...

No way she shows up to the debate, much less anything else...NO WAY - NO HOW.

Sarah stays, McCain goes.

Romney/Palin is the ticket.

Book it.

BubbleGirl said...

I say yes too. She will drop out this week before the debate.

Miss Goldbug said...

I say no. But she probably wants to...

How long will the debate last with Biden?

My guess- 20 minutes.

She'll do okay, despite all the preposterous, venomous hyperbole circulated about her. If the Dems didn't fear her, they wouldn't say anything (you don't attack someone you believe to be a lightweight). The more they carry on, the more popular she becomes with her supporters.

I can't wait for Biden to lose his temper, as usual, and start screaming about how high his IQ is, as he did with a reporter during the primaries. That, at least, should be funny. His opening statement will, of course, be plagiarized, as will every rehearsed comment out of his mouth. By the way, what happened to his hair plugs? They used to be so entertaining...

Damn Keith!

I am still thinking of the question! It seems like a great idea to me because Romney has a success record in business although which I personally won't hold it against him but supposedly he has a history of failed companies too! It is all in how it is looked to say if he is brillant now because he is successful now but then the media will focus on the negative I'm sure. Has that ever happened in history before? Where a presidential nominee renigs on his 1st choice as VP because he thinks he might lose with her?
Final Verdict= NO, not enough balls to admit fault!!!

rich in fl!

As I wrote the story it made me think how corrupt and greedy Bush and his cronies are.

They want to enslave people. The people didn't get a home (they thought they bought a home only to realize a foreclosure), the responsible people couldn't afford a home, Freddie and Fannie got egg on their face, hundreds of banks became insolvent, people lost their retirement and savings (some account holders at Indymac), and now there's going to be a massive transfer of wealth from the poor the the same SOBs who got rich off the whole pyramid scheme.

She ain't gonna quit.....she's the 'cuda, man.

If Romney gets in McCain will get about 30% or less. At least Sara is somewhat popular, she has rosy cheecks and looks like a human. Romney is a stone faced robot, without a pulse, loaded with generational wealth and very unpopular even among rpublicans. Wake up Keith, McCain does not stand a chance. With Palin at least he has a prayer of evangelicals.

McCain Is Losing The SNL War
Posted by Ashish on 09.28.2008

John McCain is turning into this year's Al Gore.

There is something that is becoming very clear now -- John McCain is getting killed in what I like to call the SNL war. SNL, along with a group of other shows (late night and daytime talk shows, morning shows, the Daily Show, Colbert, basically any entertainment show that people watch for fun that also sometimes covers politics briefly) play very important roles in Presidential elections -- they help define candidates. They are shows that cover politics briefly, but that regular people who don't follow politics watch. These shows serve as the only window into politics that many average people have. Many people don't watch debates, or political speeches, or cable news channels, but they still vote. How do they form their opinion of candidates? They do so based on the images of the candidates that come across from the mainstream entertainment shows that happen to cover some politics.

Sarah Palin was a phenomenon until SNL turned her into a national laughing stock. They absolutely tore her apart last night. But the key here is that these types of skits only work when they touch on the truth. It's only funny if it shines light on what people are already starting to think. America has been losing confidence in Sarah Palin for weeks because of her decision to hide from the media, and then when she finally did give interviews, she bombed. So when people see her turned into a joke on SNL, it rings true because it's already the direction they were moving in and just like that, she is defined as a person who is clueless and way over her head. And now, we are seeing the same thing happen to John McCain. Over the past three weeks, we have seen SNL, David Letterman, and just about every entertainment show change McCain from an honorable hero to a negative-attacking, politically calculating liar who was scared to debate Obama.

Now the initial response might be that these are just comedic shows, that people don't take them so seriously. Wrong. History has shown that these images that get created from popular shows play huge roles, because again, a big chunk of people who vote do not really pay attention to the election. They base their views on what reaches them via the shows they already watch anyways, not cable news. Some might say this is an example of the liberal media bias. Wrong again. Al Gore and John Kerry, the Democratic nominees, were the losers of this same war in 2000 and 2004.

Sarah Palin is a symbol of everything that is wrong with the modern United States.But more than that, she is a horrifying symbol of how little we ask for in return for the total surrender of our political power.
Not only is Sarah Palin a fraud, she's the tawdriest, most half-assed fraud imaginable, 20 floors below the lowest common denominator, a character too dumb even for daytime TV -and this country is going to eat her up, cheering her every step of the way. All because most Americans no longer have the energy to do anything but lie back and allow ourselves to be jacked off by the calculating thieves who run this grasping consumer paradise we call a nation.

Last nights SNL skit on Palin was great! Tina Fey nailed it agian.

Did Sarah Palin vote for the 700 Billion Dollar theft last night?? No?? She may indeed be an idiot, but she has lots of company.

Romney ran for president as a jackass. It wasn't until he withdrew from the race that he actually sounded like a conservative. He thinks Ron Paul is a nut for his beliefs, even though Ron Paul is being proven correct every day. Mitt can stay home.

The wealthy people running this country don't care what you think. Just shuddup and pick one of their candidates from column A or column B.

All hail the Libertarian New World Order. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.

Erm, you obviously have no understanding of the word Libertarian. America was a Libertarian Republic. The New World Order is about you being a SLAVE to the elite in a global Communist state.

If she was from Fla., she could call Africa her neighbor. Since hurricanes enter our air space first, this would be prime experience for the position of weather forecaster or 'cane prediction specialist.

We've been duped
We've been had
They've been pulling our leg
It's time we faced facts
McCain laid an egg!

Palin's a speck
She's a spot
She's just barely a dot
A candidate spectacular
She most certainly is not!

But they searched
And they sought
And they bought the whole lot
of cheap Palin hype
and loud Palin tripe!

The McCain campaign reportedly held a mock debate with Sarah Palin and according to some insiders it was disastrous. There is a good chance that McCain’s latest stunt, his threat to not show up for last Friday’s debate, was actually an attempt at getting rid of the vice-presidential debate altogether. So now what? Getting Palin off the ticket would be yet another way to generate some buzz, while getting rid of an embarrassing liability. At the same time, it would give the Obama campaign an opening to once again question McCain’s judgment. Either choice brings its own set of negatives.
My guess is that Palin will stay on board. At this point the expectations are so low that barring a monumental gaffe her debate performance will be viewed as “good enough”. Then the campaign will do their best to play that up and keep her out of the media.
OTOH, rumors are also flying about the McCain people planning Bristol’s shotgun wedding as a pre-election stunt. It could alternatively provide a good alibi for Palin to drop out.
