Actually I did WATCH it but my sound on my computer is screwed up so I couldn't hear it.

Did she confirm she was a member of AIP on it?

YEs, McCain stole Obama's thunder for about 30 seconds... only to have lightning come crashing down on his bald head.

THere are a couple issues for which Palin is being criticized that don't matter, and several very important ones as well. Her daughter's pregnancy is generally a small one EXCEPT-- that it proves her stance against sex education and birth control is shortsighted. Her time as a mayor should give her administrative experience EXCEPT-- that she totally MISUSED her power and fired librarians who hadn't backed her campaign (librarians?). Etc., etc. This will only get worse for Grandpa and Miss Congeniality.

As to a poster who thought many Clinton supporters will go for Palin--Clinton has always been pro-choice, Palin is the opposite. Clinton has been a supporter of a secular society, Palin is the opposite. Other than her gender, it is hard to think of something Palin and Clinton agree on, so why would a woman who backed Hillary on the issues vote McCain/Palin?

Really, why?

The ABC blog simply quotes a dude who claims Palin was a member of the AIP.


As well as her husband... Which has documentary CONFIRMED PROOF.
from the same link: "the Alaskan Election office has confirmed Palin's husband was a member". Oh.. And she'd address a party she wasn't a member of at some point in time.... Right.......... Guess you also missed the part where she said she supported them..

No, she is welcoming their party into the election, I think its called good sportsmanship.

She says "Your party", alot.

She has always been a registered rep.

Spot on Trevor.

The McCain campaign made a fatal mistake when picking Palin.. Thinking that just because she was a woman, they would get all the Clinton supporters...

Why?

Because now the tens of millions of evangelical Christians who iffy about voting at all are going to vote for McCain/Palin.

The far-left women would vote for Obama anyway. All McCain needs is to win the middle class white vote in PA, OH, MI, WI, and MN and he wins the election. It doesn't matter if he loses NY and CA by 40%.

Palin is going to give McCain a great chance to win PA, OH, and VA. Obama is facing a serious uphill battle now in these states.

Thanks!

And this is what is passing as serious discussion these days?

Wow... the libs truly seemed panicked over Palin. Wonder why?

If she was really as bad as they are making her out to be I would think they'd be gracious and just let her implode.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


I think it shows a great deal of either hubris or stupidity to think that women will flock to the red team in droves just because the VP is a woman.

She's anti-choice, pro-gun, anti-animal, anti-logic (obviously these are over-simplifications, but that's the name of the game when it comes to the understanding of the General Public). Except for the last one, the majority of women are staunchly opposed to her stances. Creationism isn't, to my knowledge, an issue that can be understood in terms of gender, but the other three most certainly are, without doubt. In fact, they're the top three if I had to guess.

What I mean to say is that her positions on these issues are diametrically opposed to the majority of other American women.

The notion that America's women are a bunch of giggling, sexist idiots is offensive and poorly thought-out. If that's what passes for strategy on the part of Republicans, I think they need to go back to school.

Sarah Palin isn't 'a woman', she's a woman who wants to roll back womens' rights and forment a climate of healtcare fascism. Women aren't stupid - they can see that.

I can't disagree with the OP's comments about the timing of the announcement, it seems, on the surface, to be clever. But seriously, are we really expecting a horde of American women to leave the center and flock to the Republicans just because of the gender of McCain's running mate?

I would be very surprised if that happened. Surprised and ashamed...

Do I even need to mention the fact that she's a stereotypical HYPOCRITICAL politician...

How about the fact that she's a stereotypical CRIMINAL politician?


As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

No, I think the Dems are smart enough to know what just happened to them and they in up against the ropes. They are desperately trying to throw anything against the wall and hoping something will stick.



Desperate? We're ecstatic! Whether she stays or resigns, she's the gift that keeps on giving. People said Obama didn't have a post-convention bump. As the GOP convention oozes on, he IS getting it.

So, let me get one more thing straight. The party of Lincoln, the party that fought the Civil War to keep the nation together has nominated for VP someone who wants to carve the nation apart by having Alaska secede? Forgetting whether that's treason, where would that leave John's drill everywhere energy policy?

Say what????

Seriously...........

So you think if McCain/Palin are elected - "evil science" as you call it will end? And that she will bring upon the rapture or something???????????
Oh boy........Are you in for a shock.

Care to do an interview for CNN? Fox? MSNBC?

Scary, But I think the above members position is part of many McCain/Palin supporters beliefs.

Great.

Maybe his vote will cancel out one of the members of Rev. Wright's church.

From your source...

"I think John McCain is basically what Obama says he is and what Obama is not," Coale said. "McCain brings people together, he has an incredible record of integrity."

This is EXACTLY what I was thinking since Friday. McCain really IS what Obama tried to position himself as.

I think this is just the beginning. There will be a LOT more Dems going for McCain publicly. And privately, when it comes time to vote, is when millions of Hillary supporters will go with McCain.

These attacks On Palin and the level of the alleged allegations are basically shameful, attending a meeting or listening to or respecting a movement for independence is NOT a terrible thing

Alot of States have felt similarly

Her daughter is nothing in terms of a reflection on her

A scandal for trying to get a cop fired who...tazered his child?

I mean what, lol...

and that's another thing because there are radical talking christians that like her that means she persoanlly represents them?

There is nothing to this hatred other than her Religion and Being a Woman

and there is Nothing to Hatred of Obama than his name and him being Black


The things being used against her are as bad as this




Maybe he is a DL brother? Who knows... this Guy ... here says it's true, says he was in the Limo it must be true right?

I really dont see what Palin being a woman has to do with anything, but then I am an evil blood drinking conservative. What I do see is a woman who resignd a position of power when her boss ignored her charges of corruption, ran against that boss and beat him by 30 points in the primaries, trounced her opponent in the general by similar margins, and then reformed the exact same comission, laws, and deals she had orignally resigned over. Fo those interested, the comssion was the alaskan natural gas devolpement authority, her boss was the then governor Murkowsk, the issue at hand was an natural gas pipeline that BP had bribed its way into contracting, with tax breaks, and she reformed the authority by firing 35 of Murkowski's appointees and rewriting the law giving BP the contract. It eventually went to a canadian company at less cost to the state.

I see soemone who is intimately familiar with the economics of energy, specifically oil and natural gas, both from an economic and a political perspective, in an election when energy has become outr main concern.

I see someone who ran both a town, and a state, while raising 5 children, and has a 80% approval rating in her home state.

Pandering? Possibly, but I think Mccain is just a lot smarter than people give him credit for. Or maybe hes just, wiser? Afterall, there was a time when the eldest were respected as the most experienced and learned. But Im sure those folks were wrong, clearly anyone can see that our youth obsessed culture is far more intelligent than one in which those with the most maturity make the decisions.

Are you equally ashamed at the 90%+ horde of blacks flocking to Obama?




How about the fact that she's a stereotypical CRIMINAL politician?


How about the fact that you are now crossing the line and just making sh*t up? Curious how you came to this conclusion. Based on what?
