Palin punch

Before I start I'd just like to distance myself from the Obama campaign before he's forced to repudiate me and my comments.

Just watched Sarah Palin's speech at the Republican convention. Wasn't particularly impressed. Felt like she pandered a bit in the beginning with her whole this is my life segment. Here's my eldest son he's going off to Iraq to be shot at. Here's my baby with a disability which now makes me more in touch with all you folk with kids with diasabilities.

Seems like Obama was right and the Republicans are trying to make this more about personalities than about issues. She tried to attack Obama on some trivial stuff that he's been attacked on before, she didnt break new ground and with her Tina Fey look and those weak punchlines was it just me or was anyone else expecting her to break into "Live fom New York its Saturday night"?

Got to say though that this Palin pick is pretty crazy. I mean on the surface I thought they just wanted a female pick to offset Obama but Palin really? That was your best choice? Iwas thinking maybe they pulled the name out of a hat but then I thought if they did that her name should never even have been in the hat in the first place. I mean I'm never seen more dirt dished about a candidate in such a short space of time than with her. One can only wonder whats going to shake out of her closet when the researchers have more time to dig into her background.

The big issue has been her pregnant daughter. Now to me its really not that big a deal but then it is since she's the VP family values candidate of the Republicans and it really is hypocitical when you think of what the Republicans would have you think of the fact that Palin's 17 year old daughter is pregnant. Can you imagine what would be said if one of Obama's daughters was pregnant at 17 and how much flack he and Michelle would have gotten about that? Yea exactly! So why shouldnt Palin and her husband get flack now?

Still much props to the dude who knocked her up because he's soon going to be the most famous baby father in America. He needs some "Best baby fadda ina America" t-shirts made up cause K-Fed just got straight knocked out the box! Bloaaw!

She was so unnecessarily antagonistic in that speech. A reviewer said she described her role when she said "pitbull (wid) lipstick." She's supposed to be de ultimate sympathetic choice, one who can trash Obama, but whom he cannot criticize for fear of soundin' discriminatory. Ah wanted to like her, but she sounded like a be-atch, like a cuss-cuss, petty be-atch. Tina Fey look better than she.

Just goes to show that politicians are people at the end of the day... just like any and everybody else. Too much people forget that.

And the daughter's pregnancy isn't a big deal. The girl made her choice and that's that. Unfortunate that she getting shown up as some sorta disgrace. I say leave the kid be...

I only heard soundbites. I tired of the US elections which seems like it has been going on forever. Not sure what I was expecting from Palin but the little I heard was funny and some well pointed barbs

She may have spun the family values rhetoric, but all a dat would appeal to the uber-whites, who are looking for a saviour from the evil funny-looking democratic nominee. She has it all: pro-life with her special child, and pregnant daughter who is to be married and to continue the family value facade; the love of guns and protection that right to carry arms; she put her money where her mouth is and sending her son in the line of fire, so she can so-called identify with all those losing sons and daughters in the war...

Wow! Now, she just has to answer a few questions about inner city life, poverty and the housing crises, and see where that leads her...

i watched the speech last night. nothing but attacks...no policy. i don't care that the daughter is pregnant. before that came out, i was against this woman. she is an ultra conservative. she is staunchly pro-life and will work to take away the rights of women everywhere. she applauds the war like it make since. she's crazy!

You're right Kfed aint got nothing on him and yes she just keeps going on and on and on and I'm waiting on her to be funny or something but nothing she just falls flat, I've had enough of it all already. I'm ready to vote, enough with interrupting my tv time ready.

Congrats on your award! Just popped over from GG's and it's good to read a political post that doesn't bore the pants off me.

Palin's daughter's baby daddy's gonna be rich off a tell-all after the divorce in a few years. That's after he takes half of the girl's million's she's set to make from selling pictures of the baby and interviews. Mark my words.
