You know that satan thing reminds me of a shirt idea I had:

"I voted for the Lesser of Evils". And the shirt shows Satan dressed in political attire.

He really had a kind heart. What with sending Saddam to heaven with the Mormoms and everything.

He was just contemplative.

No. Sarah Palin has core values and experience. Obama does not.

Obama was called a "rock star" because before he spoke, he used to have rock bands play sets to draw crowds. Then, he'd brainwash them with unsubstantial messages of "hope" and "change" when he had done absolutely nothing to ever cause hope and change. THAT is why he is regarded as a rock star. It's not because of the crowds he drew, but because he used to draw crowds by using rock bands.

Here's the text of the speech:

Palin in undelivered speech for UN protest: Ahmadinejad dreams of Final Solution

Edit: Wrong speech! Sorry.

I told senator Barrack Obama this would happen! I told him to get Gwen Stefani. He didn't listen and now look where he is.

If someone reputable like the local police report that number, then I will believe it.

Can anyone tell me why McCain is having these little meetings to presumable crowds, when its clear, he is speaking to no one???

Has anyone noticed this?
Sure, he's beein in "crowds" but keep an eye out for the podium, the back wall, the flag and the whispering Maverick.


As far as Palin is concerned, i really dont blame the government for these shows, i really blame the people. Mindless FREAKS.

Had there been 25 people they would have still said 60,000. Its all smoke and mirrors at this point, poor Obama, he should have been a woman.

In your dreams and those of the other obamaphiles here. What is your evidence that the numbers are wrong? And from your (partisan?) point of view are the Obama crowd numbers always totally accurate and just the Republican numbers inflated?

Level playing field, deny hypocrisy.

Having lived in FL, let me tell you that every rich republican from the east coast retires there. So she went to a republican retirement community and pulled 90% of it's dying and crippled residents.


Here is what the Miami Herald, a "Right" minded newspaper, said about the event:

"Palin made her Florida debut in The Villages, one of the fastest-growing retirement communities in the country and a treasure trove of Republican voters. President Bush put it on the map when he campaigned here in the homestretch of the 2004 campaign."

Can we find any MSM reports of the numbers of people??? Lets see her draw a crowd like that here in Seattle. Thats like sending Barak to San Fransico and being amazed at the crowd that turned out.

edited for grammer.

You know, Thich, this is the reason why conspiracy theorists have such a bad name. You are completely, unequivocally sold on only one theory for which is, after all, JUST A THEORY.

Keep an open mind, and don't be so sold on one idea. And please, don't give off the air as though you are 'in the know' when no one who discusses politics aren't.

I challenge you to try and find evidence/articles/etc. that CONTRADICT your closed off beliefs.

I'm confused. Your upset that Palin gave a Republican based speech to Republicans? Does Obama exclude Democrats at his events or something? I always thought that when campaigning that you speak to your base which is exactly what she was doing.

And why are people questioning how many people were there, are you jealous that someone other than Obama can draw crowds? Are you going to be surprised when McCain+Palin get more than 60,000 votes in November?

Now I agree 100 percent with that. I am sick of this election, and I dont care. Blah! When I turn on the news and have to hear this crap over and over and over and over....I say make Bush 'King" and we can go back to our lives.

I'm wondering why they are making it such a HUGE deal about her drawing a large number of Republicans from a Republican community.

I think we still need to find out why she was doing state business through a Yahoo email account to avoid transparancy laws before anything else. It seems as if breaking into the account has done nothing but forward her cause by not having to answer why she had them in the first place. Care taking a stab at that one?

I heard there was trouble when they were forced to open overflow golf cart parking on the fairway of the resort's signature 18th hole! People were threatening to withhold their monthly fees!

This is McCain Country!

More like sad for humanity

Now that I understand the circumstances I am not surprised by this 'crowd'. The only thing that continues to surprise me is people thinking Palin should be our next VP/Pres.

For the same reason that the press made such a big deal of Obama drawing a huge crowd overseas in Germany in a socialist setting. It gave the talking heads something to talk about.

Exactly. It gives them something to talk about. It was huge today on Limbaugh and the Jeff Katz show. They discussed two major things:

1) Palin out performing Obama on gathering a crowd.

2) SNL ripping into the Palin family.

Now, while I am sure both are great for ratings, neither has anything to do with politics. They neglected to mention that Palin was speaking in a retirement community full of conservatives; while Obama spoke in Charlotte a town lacking liberals (it's a swing state for him).

It's not taking anything away from Palin - 60,000 is an enormous crowd and it is something to be excited about. But it's just dirty to compare the two as if there were any similarities.

As far as SNL, I'm not going to defend it, but it's SNL. The show that brought Will Farrel into the world. A liberal show that is known for pushing buttons. Obama should not have to apologize for that. Rush Limbaugh says crazy stuff every day, and I don't expect McCain to be accountable for him.

Also, I don't remember any of these conservatives speaking out for the Spears family when they were attacked for Jamie Lynn getting pregnant. Everyone accused them of being a terrible family, leading to her pregnancy. Bill O'Reilly comes to mind.

Last, they keep saying that liberals say that anyone who doesn't vote for Obama is racist. They said it over and over today on both Limbaugh and the Katz show afterwards.

It's a ridiculous statement and a blatant lie.

This headline doesn't tell me anything about Palin, more about people in Florida.

It says both.

That spot was chosen

Not saying that was wrong. It was strategic.

If the reported number of "60,000" is from the McCain camp, this is just complete BS. They have lied about numbers at their gatherings continually. McCain is nothing more than lies, lies and more lies. When is this country going to wake up? Thanks, but NO THANKS1
