Really? O'Reilly himself said, "She has scant experience for a Vice Presidential pick."; so I certainly wouldn't say all
Republicans/Conservatives are very happy with the pick.
On one hand, McCain's campaign has been attempting to reinforce his former "Maverick McCain" image, with a relatively unknown female pick, in order
to draw in more independent voters. At the same time the campaign is attempting to solidify the conservative base with a pick that's even more
conservative than McCain is. The problem is that they really can't have it both ways, and it is
creating a divide amongst republican party
As to the notion of CNN's "blatant liberalism" in choosing to discuss a "stupid tropical storm"; that's quite ridiculous.
I suppose Bush is also a "blatant liberal" because he's chosen to cancel his RNC appearance in order to focus on the looming hurricane. Heck, the
whole Republican party must be "blatant liberals" because they're considering canceling day two for this "stupid tropical storm".
I'm not saying that CNN doesn't lean left at times, but the OP's chosen "evidence", in this case, is downright absurd.
