Running out the clock... how much longer can McCain hide Sarah Palin from reporters, voters and the people of the world?

Trust me, they will not allow this woman to be interviewed, except by Fox News and People Magazine. You will not see a Sarah Palin press conference. The new game is called "hide Sarah Palin", similar to what Bush Sr. did with Dan Quayle in '88. They'll trot her out there to deliver her Rove-written lines, and keep her on script, but they will not let her speak.

Why? Because she'd have no idea what she was talking about. Nor should we expect her to. She was the mayor a few months ago of a town of 6,000 people. An intellectual lightweight who only got her passport last year. A lovely person, easy on the eyes, but a cynical political pick in the end.

Again, this race is now a joke. There's a chance that after a grueling two year process, America may elect a person who could be president without knowing that person's views, without knowing if that person even has a view, and without knowing if that person has the knowledge and intelligence to be president.

But that's where we are, America 2008. Just one big brainless reality TV game. And the world is afraid.

Don't dismiss the fact that Sarah Palin is Commander of the Alaska National Guard-- consider this.

Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile interceptor defense system. The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska National Guard is the unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic missile attacks. It’s on permanent active duty, unlike other Guard units.

As governor of Alaska , Palin is briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counterterrorism. Her exposure to classified material may rival even Biden's and certainly by far exceeds Obama's.

She's also the commander in chief of the Alaska State Defense Force (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into Homeland Security's counterterrorism plans.

Palin is privy to military and intelligence secrets that are vital to the entire country's defense. Given Alaska 's proximity to Russia , she may have security clearances we don't even know about.

According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain in February, but nobody ever found out. This is a woman used to keeping secrets.

She can be entrusted with our national security, because she already is.

Keith - I said it before and I'll say it again: You Are a Hypocrite. You want us to vote all encumbents out and don't like Washington insiders. But what happens when a non-insider enters the ring? Keith starts crying like a baby - "Oh, she doesn't have the experience to lead our country". Which is it Keith? You can't have it both ways. There is no such thing as an experienced inexperienced candidate. You sir are a hypocrite. You've hitched your wagon to Obama and can't let go, being dragged through the mud, you are slinging that mud with the rest of the left wing crowd. And by the way, I'm not voting McCain/Palin - I'm voting Bob Barr, so don't accuse me of bias or being pro-McCain.

I'm not sure how best to protect my assets against a McCain/Palin win. I would expect the dollar and stock market to continue to tank. Real estate is fucked either way. Oil will likely go back up a bit.

I just don't see any good ideas outside of short positions.


I love this blog but to many left winged kooks hiding around here.The same idiotic blathering the kook fringe knows so well.I agree Bush was just another Liberal after I voted for him twice and so is McCain.Sarah Palin a was brillant move and will probabaly win the election for him defeating the messiah his most reverand Obama..get ready lefties , here we come..

You know not of what you speak which is discouraging as you typically post some decent material here. Charlie Gibson is interviewing her on ABC News. I think you and the American public will be surprised by her political prowess. McCain is not an idiot despite what you may think and will very likely be the next Preseident of the United States.

This is a total FARCE!!!!!

"A farce is a comedy written for the stage or film which aims to entertain the audience by means of unlikely, extravagant, and improbable situations, disguise and mistaken identity, verbal humour of varying degrees of sophistication, which may include sexual innuendo and word play, and a fast-paced plot whose speed usually increases, culminating in an ending which often involves an elaborate chase scene. Farce is also characterized by physical humour, the use of deliberate absurdity or nonsense, and broadly stylized performances."

"The protagonist may get away with what he or she has been trying to hide at all costs, even if it is a criminal act."

And now, another quote:

"Leaving so soon? I wouldn't hear of it! Why, our little party's just beginning."

She might be too young to remember what happened to Geraldine Ferraro & her family, but she's old enough to remember what happened to the Clinton Family. What the FFFF is she talking about?

Of course the "questioners", whomever they may be" have a right to ask Palin questions. That's just absurd!

You just don't get it, do you?

Sarah Palin is not going to hide. She is going to LEAD.

The more that people like you attempt to trash her, the more popular she becomes. Keep it up, and it will be you who is hiding your head as soon as McCain/Palin is elected... which is probably the real reason that you plan to hang up your blog on the day after the election.

The democrats and Obamabots are running scared. What a spectacle to behold.

With all due respect, your blog has been a an interesting and intriguing perspective on the housing crash, almost always ahead of the game, but your political rants are making you very unpopular with your readers.

You think that is bad? Even worse, we almost had a candidate who thought a good answer was "(the money) will come from where it comes from", in explaining how she would save homedebtors from foreclosure.

If that is the nature of the answer, we are better off not hearing it.

Basically,the age of reason is over. Psychologists have shown that about 90% of people decide things not on the facts, but on their emotions. The GOP has more or less decided the 10% of people who are convinced by facts are not worth the effort, and politically, they're right (no pun intended).

Sarah Palin lacks the brain function to distinguish between the scientific fact of evolution and the christian creation myth. Aside from being totally unqualified, they are wise to fear interviews as she could slip into "Preacher Palin" mode at any minute.

The republicans picking Sarah Palin to run for the vice-presidential ticket? How Poetic!

We’ve been duped,
we’ve been had,
they’ve been pulling our leg!

It’s time we faced facts.
John McCain laid an egg!

Palin’s a speck,
she’s a spot,
she’s just barely a dot!

A savior spectacular,
she most certainly is not!

But they searched,
and they sought,
and they bought the whole lot…

…of cheap ‘Publican hype,
and loud Palin tripe!

She is actually going to do a 2 part interview on Thu and Fri with ABC News.

Maybe they'll ask her the questions in part 1, and let her answer them in part 2 after she studies up on the answers.

When she was Mayor, the town had less than 4600, and she hired someone to help run the town.

I think Gilbert/Chandler/Mesa have more residents than all of Alaska.

Palin is an idiot, and she has no skills to be President (one must assume that McCain may die in office @ his age, and with his family history).

Seriously Keith, so she was a mayor and is now Governor a MUCH MUCH Bigger role then a community organizer, oh boy. Yeah we all know especially in terms of housing just how great those community organizer nuts are ACORN anyone. Seriously wait until the debate she will crush and I do me CRUSH Biden. This women knows here stuff dont go reading the HuffPo who was so desparate for a gaffe they went with the Fannie/Freddie one which we all know she was right on. Again turn off Olbermann open your eyes. McCain is going to win and win easily now. And saying we don't know somebody's views I hope you were talking about Obama because seriously we dont have a clue. we do know he hates America and wants to make it a socialist country and perhaps worse.

So Sambo beat the bitch!”

This is how Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin described Barack Obama’s win over Hillary Clinton to political colleagues in a restaurant a few days after Obama locked up the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

According to Lucille, the waitress serving her table at the time and who asked that her last name not be used, Gov. Palin was eating lunch with five or six people when the subject of the Democrat’s primary battle came up. The governor, seemingly not caring that people at nearby tables would likely hear her, uttered the slur and then laughed loudly as her meal mates joined in appreciatively.

“It was kind of disgusting,” Lucille, who is part Aboriginal, said in a phone interview after admitting that she is frightened of being discovered telling folks in the “lower 48” about life near the North Pole.

I found this on the internet...Hmm I wonder if it true? Does anyone know?

Sarah Palin is creepy

truth said...


Brother, i have loved you and even some whacky deep end thoughts but always respected ya especially where we mayhave differed on something because thats the way we roll..

Seriously though, Palin was interviewed by Charles Gibson. And yes she was a mayor, but she was also a governor. 12 Billion dollar budget.

When it comes to Sarah Palin, we've been through the specifics on this Bridge to Nowhere crap. In fact, the Democrat Party in Alaska acknowledges that it was Sarah Palin who finally scrapped the bridge. That website, by the way, disappeared for a while, until pressured to re-post the page (which they did, only at a different address). But just as a little side note ... guess who DID vote for the Bridge to Nowhere. Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

When it comes to Sarah Palin's record of reform ... let's just look at earmarks, since this is something that Palin and her Senate opponents have in common. Before Sarah Palin's time as governor, the state of Alaska used to request over 100 earmarks each year to be secured by Alaska's congressional delegation. When it came time for Sarah Palin to request her earmarks for the first time as governor ... she slashed that number by half , requesting 54 earmarks. The next year, Palin cut that number AGAIN down to just 31 earmarks. Of those 31 earmarks, 27 of these are continuous or were previously appropriated. When Palin entered the governor's office, the total amount of quests averaged $550 million a year. That number has been reduced to less than $200 million now that Palin is in office. And it would only continue to decline. One of Palin's stated goals as Governor is to ask Congress for no more than a dozen earmarks for her state. On top of all that, Palin insisted that each earmark requested by the state of Alaska demonstrate an important federal purpose and public support. Whenever possible, Palin wants to have earmarks only if they can be matched by state or local budgets. And her administration is currently re-examining previous decisions on transportation earmarks ... the Alaska Department of Transportation is conducting an audit to determine the status of every single one of its recent earmarks.
Let's go ahead and take a look at Barack Obama's earmarks in the Senate. In just three years, Barack Obama has requested over 300 earmark projects totaling $740 million. For the 2008 fiscal year alone, Obama requested 112 earmarks . Sarah Palin? 31.

News flash to Keith:

Palin is not running for president. McLoser has, with one masterful move, cause the drooling liberal left to come COMPLETELY unhinged. You all are comparing her to obama! what a joke!

Obama is completely flustered. He needs to get back to talking how he is going to get America back on track. Instead he is reduced to talking about lipstick on pigs. Obama is dropping the ball big time. He needs to have a significant lead going into election day to compensate for all those who when polled say they will vote for a black man but won't when they cast their vote in private.

As I type this intrade numbers are:

McLoser :49.5
Obama: 49.4

Hillary is up again today.

Come Keith, give her some time to get up to speed. Geez, obama has spent most of his freshman term campaigning for president. Palin should be able to get 1-2 weeks before she has to take on obama.

Oh, yea, I almost forgot.

Hahaha - everything's a riot isn't it? I was thinking that should McCain be elected and not complete his term, and should the same thing happen to his successor Sarah (What a Gal) Palin, then the next logical step (in terms of intelligence) would be for her new born to take over. America is now truly the greatest show on earth.

3. O'bama hung out with the likes of Rezko, Bill Ayers, and the REV.
4. Illinois state rep, what did he accomplish?
5. 1.5 yrs in US senate before hitting the campaign trial.
6. Wrote two books, both about himself.
7. McCain is the son and grandson of 4 star admirals, graduated the Naval Academy, was a military officer 22 yrs, senator for much much longer than the other guy.

Keep on bashing her, Keith. Every time one of you guys in the tank for Obama does it, you earn the McCain/Palin ticket more votes.

I'm here in Deep Blue Iowa (right outside the U of I). This place should be choking on Obama signs and stickers,'s not. There were more road signs in front of people's homes in early August, but now? Maybe two. (I'm not sure on that count, either.)

Nobody here is going to put a McCain sign on their front yard or a bumper sticker on their car because you are begging to get vandalized. However...there's been editorials in the local rag about how Obama's blowing it, nobody wants to be caught dead wearing an O-man t-shirt, and the ladies around here are mighty pissed about the "lipstick on a pig/old fish" comment.

Obama's in trouble. Hope you can break it gently to your European friends, but I don't think your hero is gonna be backing up a moving van to the White House any time soon.
