I usually don't get into politics. My usual sentiment is " If you have a rattlesnake, a copperhead & a cottonmouth in a ditch does it really matter which one bites you ?" You end up in big trouble anyways. Now it's like McCain has invited an asp into the ditch as well! WTF... who in their right mind chooses a running mate who is the wife of the C.E.O of BP & has a history of being anti environment pro big oil? We're having all kinds of problems with these people screwing with the gas prices & wrecking the economy. Do we really want to risk Governor Sarah Palin getting into the oval office & handing the country over to the oil companies? It's a sad state of affairs when Paris Hilton in a spoof video makes more sense than our candidates & now this... WTF was he thinking.... Anyone know how much it costs to buy a candidate?

John McCain's first objective is to win the election. Sarah Palin looks to be an excellent choice to accomplish victory. In her home state Governor Palin has managed to obtain an approval rating that stays near 80%. If she had sold out to the oil companies, that would not be possible. Besides, no one could sell out to big oil to a larger extent than did President George W. Bush.

Red, her approval numbers are very misleading, If I gave you $2,600 to do nothing at all; Would you think I am doing a good job? Alaska is they most socialist state in the union, every Alaskin get oil royalty checks every year, but this last year Sarah decided to give the great people of Alaska another $1,200 due to high fuel, and oil prices. The problem is where this money came from; The bridge to nowhere fund. You remember Mr. Stevens bridge to nowhere, Sarah supported this project untill it became known nationally, and the government pulled part of the funding, and the state would have to put up some of their own money. She used part of the $200 million they received from MINE and YOUR tax payer dollars, to give every Alaskin money to pay for their high energy prices. Wouldn't you like to get that money back in your pocket where it belongs? Wasn't that why republicans voted for Bush (giving the American tax payers their money back? Not the people of Alaska.

Oh crap! You are saying she robbed the rest of the USA to give it to Alaskans. Jeesh... we really don't need any more of that. Will the democrats be brave enough to point this out?

I admit I didn't know Palin was the wife of the C.E.O. of BP. I hate the job she is doing in Alaska. For that in itself, I would never vote for her. The scary thing is, if something happened to the old man, as in illness, she would be running things. She has already asked the big question "What does a VP do"? Scary times ahead. I pray they don't get in!

I'm a member of a wolfdog rescue organization. She was one of the big supporters of Alaska allowing aerial hunting of the few packs they have there & of her trying to open up the nation parks for drilling so I heard about her before all this. What a pit of vipors.

Her husband is actually a production supervisor, and I believe that he either quit or reduced his hours last year. Certainly not CEO, either way!

This post has many fallacies. First, Todd Palin is in a non-managerial, non-executive position. Second, if you are concerned with gas prices, how are you going to slam a woman who wants to alleviate these problems by opening up a large oil-rich reserve, and bring the American people a sense of security by cutting down on foreign imports? Third, she would actually be in the Old Executive Office building (where the VP's office is) not in the Oval office, as John McCain would be occupying that office.

Actually after someone mentioned that I did some research & found that one of my sources had made a mistake on that one. Look at her track record though. She wouldn't open up the oil fields in such a way as to help us really. It'd be a smash & grab for one of the big oil companies that are already bleeding us. They would then get the benefits of not having to ship it but wouldn't lower costs any. P.S. the V.P. is still very influential & should the old gezer kick the bucket....

Finally, someone who agrees with me. This is the biggest mistake that McCain could ever make. He has really messed up this time. She had little experience and she is pro-life NOT pro-choice. She has nothing to offer. Having McCain and Palin in office is like having four more years of Bush and Cheney in office.

...Not to mention she's under investigation for abuse of power, sort of the worst thing that can happen to an elected official. Also, while alot of people think what she's doing would help...lets say there's only a fifty-fifty chance (I doubt the odds are that good, maybe it'd help Alaska...but the rest of the country?). She's an interesting...odd..very conservative lady. She's a two-sided coin. Sorta McCain's attempt to be Obama's mirror image. We're down to the wire, it looks like. Things will sure get interesting from here on in.

Sarah Palin doesn't stand with me on most of the issues, I doubt she could swing my vote to McCain right now. I do respect her rise in politics, though, and as far as the criticism that the Republican party is out of touch with the middle class, Palin's an excellent remedy for that.
