I hope the rest of the country idiotic women/men who vote according to gender misread "Palin" as "plain" and "Obama" as "woman".

Sarah Palin is a person of impeccable integrity,

Is that why one of the first things I read about her was "ethics investigation?"

Not sure what this would do for the angry female voter. 

Republican

Vice President

Settling for second best sort of defeats the point, don't ya think?

Yeah, plus the fact that Palin is outspokenly against abortion rights. PLUS, according to some blogger from Alaska I just read in my superficial web-trawling for info (yeah - I know - not exactly hard evidence), there are tapes that have emerged that support these ethics charges against her.

If I'm not mistaken she's done a lot to advance ethics in the otherwise notoriously corrupt Alaska, pushing through ethics bills, eliminating wasteful spending, as well as resigning from the oil commission because of her fellow party members' 'lack of ethics'.

The only thing I've read about her that smacks of impropriety is her pressuring for the firing a state trooper that was going through a divorce with her sister.

I'm sure we'll hear everything and thensome in the coming days.

I've never heard of Sarah Palin until I looked at this thread this morning. Holy shit, now I'm getting my news from the FOT message board. This is bad. I need to start watching the Daily Show again.

This is a very perplexing pick. Philly Boy Roy told me that Alaska ain't even part of the United States. And it's 10 miles away from Russia! John McClane is secretly working for 'nem Russians! It's sick. I don't like it.

It's easy to be pro-life in Alaska.  Half the women in the state do not reasonably have access to the procedure in the first place and probably married the guy the first or second guy they met.

Alaskan values and realities do NOT translate to the lower 48.

I had the same reaction.  :-[ In my defense, things have been more than a bit chaotic.

You might have a point there... this kind of gambit didn't exactly work for even a Democrat like Walter Mondale in 1984.

Certainly makes you think McCain didn't buy into his own "lack of experience" rhetoric.

Oh crap, a flip flop!

If you depend on the Daily Show, you would not hear about this until Tuesday. Depend on the FOT message board, it is our only hope!
