What do you think?

I nearly fell off my chair when I saw that pic.
No wonder the Libs really hate her.

Edit: This is why the libs keep shooting themselves in the foot by releasing pictures like this. If they really want to do some damage to the cons, they need to find a similar picture of McDaddyCain holding his gun.

They picked her because nobody else is going to wast there time running with McCain, and she makes a great patsy for the RNC losing. Watching Bush's RNC speech last night was like watching a bad sitcom with cheering and clapping in lue of laughing. I was just waiting for the curtain to fall and expose the Wizard of OZ. what a fake staged JOKE. LOL ADL Who you voting for?
Worst or Worser, Good COP or Bad COP, But they are still a COP. You voters make me laugh like your going to change anything. wake up people time to disengage from them.


The Declaration of Independence of the 50 states
August 26th 2008
The unanimous Declaration of the fifty united states of America, and it’s Territory’s.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —Such has been the patient sufferance of these states; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these states and the World. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has forbidden it’s Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till their Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, it has utterly neglected to attend to them.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with their measures.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing their Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has made Judges dependent on their Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our legislatures.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving Their Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For Unfair Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of their Protection and waging War against us.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has plundered and polluted our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless District, Circuit, And Supreme COURTS and Their Code/Law enforcement Depts. Of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc., whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Government whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Senators and Representatives of Congress Of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc. . We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their BAR Association Inc., to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united states of America, in The Re-Activated General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united states are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent states; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc., and that all political connection between them and the District of Columbia , is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent states, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

It is probably a doctored photo... but regardless, it is AWESOME! And what catches your eye? I'll be damned if that mother of five has NO STRETCHMARKS and an incredible figure. It will only endear her more to the conservative base. It may even increase sales of American flag bikinis and rifles.

At no point did I state that I would not share a fox hole with the senator from Arizona. I watched him get off the plane when he returned to the world. I fully understand the grit of the man and that he will do what he feels is right.

Its photoshopped. Its just her head and face from the following photo mirrored and tacked onto a different image.

I'm glad it's doctored that means that there is yet another attractive Family lady with a rifle out by the pool somewhere.

I see the name/label application nitwits are on line - on both sides! How about some reasoned comments/arguments from each sides instead. Actually both Veep selections were brilliant! As an ex-Republican(cured by the last 8 years since Bush was nominated)I might well vote for Obama because of Biden! But not for McCain. Advanced age and Nepotism(Palin) are a BAD combination for the Great Empire that isn't...

posted on Sep, 3 2008 @ 11:06 PM
I think it is awesome, I've never been that excited about McCain, only just...more so than Obama. But this Palin lady, I love her, I love everything about her, she represents the average American like no other. And she is tuff, I loved how she mocked Obama and what a joke he really is.

I think the reasoning behind saying it is an insult to women is the fact that she was pulled out from underneath the hat seemingly from nowhere in an attempt to get the disgruntled Hillary supporters.This would make anyone with any reasoning skills whatsoever ask........does he think women are so stupid that they are gonna vote for him just because he threw a woman on the ticket??? It seems fairly transparent , especially when there are more experienced females and males out there in the republican pool to have picked from.

Um.... no.

Tonight Sarah Palin just showed everybody how brilliant McCain was to pick her as VP. Along with everything else I already mentioned, Palin totally kicks ass.

You know, not in an Ivy League lawyer being on the debate team sort of way. But in the Pittsburgh Steeler fan sort of way. I remember a couple of years ago a fan ran onto the field at a Steelers/Browns game and one of the Steelers picked the guy up and just planted him headfirst into the turf -then layed on him until the security came.

That is what Sarah Palin just did tonight to Obama -planted him head first in the turf. She is the best VP McCain could have picked, man or woman.

Absolutely, even the democratic lap dogs from CNN were admitting that now they see why he picked her and that she really is that good. I know they were biting their tongues the whole while too. She is perfect. And her being a women probably was a factor in her choice just as Obama being black has been a factor in his campaign. If you've ever read the Art of War you would understand why they picked her. This whole "she's a women, thus a gimmick" thing is temporary at best. She is a trump card that will benefit McCain greatly in the end.

BTW she isn't "just a women", she is a great American women.

Before you guys rip me up too bad I want to say I have been a registered republican ever since 1982.I have stated this before.I have not changed my affiliate as I have tried to hold out hope for the party.I have however been voting for the democratic presidential canditate ever since reagan.I really now wish there were another option on the table.....the 2 party system is getting very stale.One of the main reasons I have strayed away from and have forsaken the gop is the acidic tone and down right mean spirited outlook of so many of my fellow party members.The "little" and "ignorant" nobodies that you have spoke of mopus are people too.I would like to see how your world would operate without the ones you hate so much and degrade with your comments about working at wendys , walmart, sear's, etc.I applaud your successes and your hard work ethics but, your comment about the smart finding a way to beat the system just smacks of what I have grown to loathe of our party.I get tired of hearing some people whine for more when I know they could do better for themselves too, but I really dislike the arrogance and sense of superiority that some people show just because they make more money and pay more taxes.If making more money and paying a higher tax bracket isnt working for you just make less.I am sure there is a way for you to "beat" the system.

Here is a quote from one of your rants:

"That is REPERATIONS without the name being stated... and I don't come from a southern slave family, my family came here in 1911, fleeing Jewish persecution (which I deal with Jew Racism everyday) and don't blame political parties ask for a free ride or become a socialist to cope with "

Have you seen this article????

I noticed in that one post that you seem very much to equate ones monetary worth with education and intelligence.This is another problem I have with our party.I am not against wealth or having as much money as one can make , but it does not solely equate to intelligence.

I think there are way too many people on both sides wound way to tight.I hope palin does turn out ok and if McCain and she win I hope they will do well for our country , but I for one dont feel like she is ready to be a heartbeat away from being president and once again I just dont think I can make myself vote for our party on the national level.

Take it from me , dont get so worked up about matter who wins you will still have your money, your guns, and your sense of supioroirty.

Seems to me like Palin is just another Flip-Floppin politician with her eyes on a prize

Pallin loves the Pork

There are also these examples of why Pallin might not be as shiny as she looks

But questions have also swirled about her supposed reformist image following reports that Palin sought pork-barrel projects for her city and state.

She also accepted at least $4,500 US in campaign contributions in the same fundraising scheme at the centre of a public corruption scandal that led to the indictment of Alaska Senator Ted Stevens. The contributions were not illegal for her to accept.

A Republican-dominated legislative committee is also investigating whether Palin dismissed Walt Monegan, her state's public safety commissioner, after he allegedly refused to fire a state trooper who had divorced Palin's sister.

Did I ever tell you about the time Sarah Palin went hunting? Palin decides she's going to hunt down all four of the Banana Splits. She stalks and kills every one of them with a machete. They all begged for their lives...except Fleegle.


She once punched a hole in a cow just to see who was coming up the road.

All true!

Wow... Johny on the spot joins ATS in the last few days pretending to speak for the "old conservatives." You just don't get it, and you quoted mopusvindictus out of context. Go troll somewhere else.

In reference to the topic, looks like Sarah did a great job tonight. I saw some highlights, and there is no doubt the girl can deliver a joke, and in this election, that might be the most important ability. Obviously she is comfortable in the spot light, and for someone so new to the national spotlight, who has been savaged by the media the way she has been attacked, she performed awesomely. Anyone who isn't impressed must be chewing on some very sour grapes.

It will be very interesting to see what the polls do. My money says that McCain pulls ahead this weekend, and Obama is toast.
