Palin blows 'em away in St. Paul

The smart politicos in the Democratic Party were always afraid of Sarah Barracuda, and they were right to be.

Anyone who saw her speech tonight knows that she isn't the weak link on this ticket. There is no weak link, and she's no weak sister.

This is a true reform ticket on a Presidential ticket of the like that I've not seen in a lifetime.

She's going to play well in the cities, but oh my God is she going to be a megastar in the towns and suburbs.

She appeals on so many levels, it's going to take a few days to think this through.

It's over. I kid you not. It won't even be close. Congratulations, President McCain and Vice President Palin.

You've got to be kidding. There are so many things wrong with this woman and this picture that it seems as if McCain suddenly decided not to run for president and just didn't know how to get out of it until he met her.

Anonymous #2, you've got to be kidding yourself. Compared to the Dems, I feel like I can be a little less scared in the direction of my country with someone like Sarah Palin.

Just remember we don't need an Obama-nation!

This woman thinks the disaster in Iraq is a mission from God. She is against abortion even in the case of rape or incest.

She blathers about "family values" while her teenage daughter gets knocked up.

And even Republican strategists described her nomination as "bullsh*t."

This may be the first time in my life I ever agreed with Peggy Noonan.

Go Obama!

Wow Rob! You sure changed my vote! Thanks for your comment, now I see so clearly!

My pleasure!

so basically you're saying that since you can make an negative pun out of someone's name, that's a reason to vote for the other guy. Outstanding. And quite frankly after the last 8 years of Republican hippocracy (how can you be Pro Life and Pro Death Penalty?) I'll take an Obama-Nation any day.

Oh and if a woman who believes the war is sanctioned by God doesn't scare you, I guess nothing will...

Safer huh?

I agree she is the best - But tell me one thing - Why was I blessed with this musical talent?

Not to mention she believes that creationism should be taught in schools, and is exceptionally anti-woman in all ways.

Believing a woman should be forced to keep a baby after being raped is ludicrous. I suppose McCain and Palin will have a plan for all these unwanted birthed babies or help the mothers that are forced to keep them? Let's not forget Palin slashed funding for a teenage mother shelter. Oh right, probably because they didn't do the noble thing and marry the boyfriend.

Margaret Atwood's Handmaid's Tale comes to mind with this pair. We'll have another disastrous 4 years if these two get elected.

That being said, I do enjoy your blog, Phantom, even if I disagree with your politics. :-)

Have fun being one of 12 people to vote for McCain in NY. Even Ben Stein, former speechwriter to presidents, thinks she's a bad choice?

What foreign experience does this woman have?

Jeez. People say they think Obama supporters are hypnotized, which they're not, but jeez, you and others are definitely hypnotized. And while Roe v. Wade will not be overturned anytime soon, she's said she's against abortion, even in rape and incest instances.

Imagine if McCain dies or is removed from his presidential spot? She's going to be our No. 1?

Think about that.

Palin as President is much less scary than Mr. Obama - A creepy Chi Town machine politician.

He sat there in a chuch (20 years!) were they spewed hate against America and white people. Any sane person who would vote for him and that hack Biden is tripping!!

Also, he was a close associate of William Ayers - (AND NOW LIES ABOUT IT) wait till the full story comes out on that you liberal freaks!

Phantom, You are spot on with your assessment.

The left is running scared.

US News will have a poll out tomorrow that shows McCain/Palin with a 10 point lead in likely voters.

Barring a catastrophe it is over.

Sayonara Barry!

It has become very clear by now that neither one of these bozos is Presidential material. Yes come Election Day I'm writing in RICH MARTIN FOR PRESIDENT!

On no. Oh no no no. No. Oh no.

Am I missing something here? I heard Palin speak, and I don't think it was a particularly inspiring or groundbreaking speech in any way. She did fine. Was she amazing? No. Is this race over? Of course not. We need a shift in power. McCain can spew out spin and yell "change" all he wants, but let's not forget that it's his party that's currently in power. Real change, I very much hope, is on the way. Obama is our man.

McCain is cut from a very different cloth than GW Bush for too many reasons to explain here.

And electing him would prevent an Obama/Reid/Pelosi monopoly on the Presidency/Senate/House. A monopoly on power from this Democratic Party should frighten anyone.

McCain sucked up to the Christian Right and cost himself the election. Tell me honestly, Phantom, do you want to live in a country ruled by this woman (which will happen sooner rather than later, since Grandpa McCain is 72 years old, and not a hale and hearty 72, like Reagan was)? Do you believe evolution is only a "theory" (of course, so is gravity, and the idea that the earth is round and revolves around the sun)? Do you think the Iraq war is a mission from God? Do you also think the Alaska pipeline is a mission from God? Do you believe in banning books? I know you're on the right, Phantom, but I didn't think you were a speaking-in-tongues bible thumper.

wooh! i never pegged you as a conservative or republican but i wholeheartedly agree w/your post! go mccain/palin '08!

Rob K said...

We've already seen a monopoly of Republican power and it's been an absolute nightmare!

McCain/Palin is back down by 4-8 points in all the major polls. Stick with baseball and Bay Ridge, not Failin' Palin and McSame's race to the bottom.
