Palin Stuff

So, a few thoughts.

The Obama camp is already dumb enough to point out her inexperience. Heh. That’ll play well.

Oh Noes! She’s under investigation for, err, what exactly? No one seems to really point out anything egregious.

How long before we hear comments to the effect of how she should be at home taking care of that new baby (while barefoot!) that she shouldn’t have had because she was too old anyway from the left?

And, well, I’ll just Dr. Strangegun say it:

Sooo… Hillary sleeps with the president for 8 years and has a term as senator, and she’s a groundbreaking woman candidate.

Palin works here way up into the governorship of Alaska (oh, hey, an executive position, a little closer to what’s actually required), and has the previously listed life experience…. but she’s just a walking set of ovaries.

Yeah, I don’t expect much fawning over the accomplishments of girl power from the left or the press. It also helps that, unlike Hillary, she doesn’t sound like she’s talking into a fan when she gives a speech.

Aunt B.:

The interesting thing to me, though, is that she doesn’t seem to be a political insider. And she seems to be kind of a bad-ass. And while it’s true that it’s probably what McCain’s candidacy needs, I do wonder if it’s what McCain’s administration wants. She doesn’t seem like the type to play Washington games (though I could be wrong). She very well may be the maverick McCain wishes he were.

Ouch.

Update: And she smoked dope! Admitted to it. And did where she could do so by law. Oh noes!!!

    Palin’s inexperience matters not because she is too inexperienced to serve as president, but she has less political experience than Obama, yet McCain has, in selecting her, given her his vote for the office of Presidency. That invalidates his chief criticism of Obama, as well as making him a hypocrite of epic proportions. It means that while he’s been repeating a mantra of “Obama lacks the experience,” he really believes that that experience isn’t necessary.

  2. tgirsch Says:

    dolphin is right. McCain’s double-standards are showing. He criticizes Obama for his supposed lack of experience, and picks someone even less experienced as his running mate. Kind of undercuts his whole “experience matters” shtick, don’t you think?

    Further, McCain ran ads criticizing Obama for short-shrifting the “millions of Hillary voters” by not picking Hillary for Veep. So what about the millions of Romney/Huckabee voters?

    People in glass houses, and all that…

  3. SayUncle Says:

    That may have worked had Obama’s camp not lobbed the first experience grenade after Palin.

    tgirsch,

    It’s okay. I’d be pissed if my guy had just nominated a tired insider with all the charisma of a tub of library paste, too. :p

  5. drstrangegun Says:

    Oh please. Unless McCain’s hedging bets that he’s going to die in the first 3 months of office, the “she’s my vote for president” experience argument holds absolutely no water whatsoever. VP does actually get to sit back and work with an actual sitting president, y’know.

    It’s better than having a sitting president run to the VP with crushing questions every 5 minutes because he doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground.

    library paste?

  7. drstrangegun Says:

    Ok, we have to call Breda now… Tam’s insulting the library paste.

  8. Letalis Maximus, Esq. Says:

    At least McCain didn’t pick “Mr. Planet Chasing Plastic Man Sales Genie Who Was Born on Second Base and Wants Us to Think He Hit a Triple.” Give me the connections with which Romney was born and I’d be running the fucking world by now.

    The truth is that Palin is a perfectly fine choice who the Left and the MSM will try to smear with everything from the Expulsion from Eden to the Disappearance of Caylee. If Hillary fanatics are pissed at the way she was treated, they ain’t seen nothing yet.

  9. tgirsch Says:

    The only thing I’m “pissed” about is that McCain attacks that he himself is guilty of, and the “liberal media” doesn’t call him on it.

    I actually don’t mind the Palin pick. I was scared to death that he was going to pick Huckabee, get elected by all the evangelical nutbags, and then die. THEN where would we be?

    I’ll have to give you that one — after living through 7+ years of it, I’d have to say you’re right. 😉

    I’m hoping that anybody who is running for president is intelligent enough to know that tomorrow isn’t promised to any of us. When a presidential candidate picks a running mate, s/he is essentially saying, if I can’t be President, I think you are the best option out of every other person in the country. If they’re not saying that, then they aren’t putting the country’s best interests first.

  12. DirtCrashr Says:

    I’m so glad it isn’t that tweaked rhino anti-gunner Bloomberg. Between Obama and Pitbull Biden, Biden has all the experience – as senator from MBNA.

    Heh. The pot calling the kettle African American.

    “She very well may be the maverick McCain wishes he were.”

    Heh.

    She did say one thing that made me cringe– she’s been going after the oil companies.

    What’s that supposed to mean? What exactly have those evil, dastardly oil companies been doing to violate us poor, helpless, ignorant, piece-of-shit, quivering, victimized blobs of jell-o, other than supplying us which an important resource?

  15. DJK Says:

    @Justin Buist

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Touche

  16. Justin Buist Says:

    What exactly have those evil, dastardly oil companies…

    Remember the Exxon Valdez? Caused a rather nasty mess in Alaska. They still haven’t paid all of their fines.

  17. Letalis Maximus, Esq. Says:

    Now, now, Exxon has merely been exhausting its judicial remedies. Which is Exxon’s right to do under the American system of justice.

  18. Dan Says:

    Still no good arguments as to why promote Obama’s inexperience while at the same time bashing Palin’s ‘inexperience.’ Fact being= Liberals owned again.

  19. Robb Allen Says:

    Yeah, Palin has ZERO experience making executive decisions. None. Being Mayor of a small town? Doesn’t count. Being GOVERNOR? It’s a shit hole state mostly covered in snow and frozen moose poop. Those decisions don’t amount to any level of hope nor change.

    Obama has actively participated in his job, what? 140 days?

    I didn’t realize until recently that running for president was considered OJT but being a Governor doesn’t matter.

    Keep banging the drum guys, it’s a riot!

    Putting your country’s interests first? C’mon man, get back to the real world, will you? Wasn’t it George III said something like:

    “I want what is good. Therefore everyone who disagrees with me is a traitor.”

    That is really how a lot of these people who run for political office think.

    “If I want it, inasmuch as I am basically infallible, it must be that what I want is good for the country. And if it isn’t? Well, fuck it as long as what I want is good for me.”

    How will the lefties survive a woman who is unabashedly a life long member of the NRA.

    She really dodges the standard who you want to shoot brilliantly.

    Also, how dare she be interviewed by someone while they are calling a baseball game. That is so middle America.

    Corrupting State government in Alaska?

    She is a corruption fighter. Anti-earmark.

    No compare that to Obama and his pal Rezko. Or Obama’s interest in education money.

    You really need to learn more about her before lobbing grenades.

  23. Lyle Says:

    “Remember the Exxon Valdez? Caused a rather nasty mess in Alaska. They still haven’t paid all of their fines.”

    And who has that inconvenienced? I didn’t feel a thing. Did you? Remember; the fishing haul the following year out of Prince William Sound and was a record. Also remember that Exxon did what the greenies wanted– spending a gazzilion dollars in the process, then the greenies bitched about the results of the cleanup. Can’t win with those folks. Ever. That whole thing was a media circus– Exxon playing the bad guy in a third-rate TV drama written by anti-capitalist loons.

    And so you’re saying that Valdez is the reason “we” need to “crack down on the oil companies”?

    Yeah, keep banging that drum. Please.

    Anyhow, other than that one stupid comment of hers, I thought our AK gub-nuh made a wonderful speech. I’d vote for her over either of the two presidential nominees any day. If I vote for the Republican, it’ll be for her, not whatisname.

  24. Justin Buist Says:

    And so you’re saying that Valdez is the reason “we” need to “crack down on the oil companies”?

    Nope. It was just the only thing that popped into my mind when I started wondering why an Alaskan governor might want to “crack down” on oil companies.

  25. emdfl Says:

    I believe she “cracked down” on oil companies after they had bribed the repubs that she later sent to jail. Something about not paying the correct percentage of profits to the state. Also included was an oil services company that was caught bribing officials.

    If her husband wasn’t already one of the first people, I would not be surprised to learn how she fought off an indian attack while nursing and pulling arrows out of her husband with her teeth…a la Maureen O’Hara in a John Wayne movie.

    She is seriously all that.
