WHY IS McCAIN RUINING THIS LADY’S LIFE? Palin Mother of FOUR will NOT be VP.
WHY IS McCAIN RUINING THIS LADY’S LIFE?
“As a cheap political stunt, McCain dragged this nice lady he doesn’t even know into his doomed campaign, and already the TV commentators and op-ed writers are calling her a dimwit, an amateur, a hapless tool. McCain is such a cruel creep that he’s making Sarah Palin debate Joe Biden.” [Political Machine]
“Who needs Harvard educated Magna Cum Laude Lawe review president when you can have:
McCain 894/899 at the navel academy and Palin went to Hawai'i Pacific University — as a freshman in the business administration program in 1982. But she only stayed one semester. Then Palin transferred to North Idaho College for the 1983-1984 school year and eventually graduated from the University of Idaho in 1987. Oh and she was second place for Miss Alaska.”
“I'm going out on a limb here, but I'd say Urkel is more qualified than she is:
“People really are shocked. And not in a good way. If there was ever a time for the media to do what the founders intended them to do, now is the time. This ain't a joke/game anymore. McCain is more dangerous than Bush and they need to stop protecting McCain.”
MY COMMNET: There are some people here piling on the amazing stupidity of the Senator McCain pick. I thought I would be the first to tell everyone, Palin will NOT be the Vice President. McCain will lose the race or she will resign/quit.
For those, who do not have a sense of history, I will quote presidential historian Matthew Dallek. “I think she is the most inexperienced person on a major party ticket in modern history,”

Sarah Palin Is NOT The Mother [Photos+Video]
Palin was not mayor for 10 years. She was on the city council from 92 to 96. Keep in mind that the population of Wasilla at the time Palin was mayor was a mere 4,500-5,000--not even as "large" as it is now.
Sorry, I don't have years to attribute for all of Obama's but one of the things I would point out is that Obama is, himself, a scholar of Constitutional law, having acted as a lecturer and senior lecturer for a total of 12 years at one of the most prestigious law universities in the nation (Univ. of Chicago). That alone qualifies him more for president than anything Palin has done in her entire life, or any past lives, should there be any ...
Finally, Obama in terms of public life--not necessarily public office, but public life--is far more extensive, diverse, and active than anything Palin has done. Obama has demonstrated that he is a servant of the people, time and again. I'd suggest that 2 years on the Illinois senate equates to far more experience than all of Palin's political experience, and Obama has accomplished far more than that.
Frankly, there is no comparison between the two in terms of experience. It is not a contest that Palin can win.

Biden is the senior United States Senator from Delaware. Born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania for ten years prior to moving to Delaware, Biden trained as a lawyer and became a senator in 1973 at age 30, the fifth-youngest senator in U.S. history.
He has served as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, dealing with issues related to drug policy, crime prevention, women's rights and civil liberties. He is a long-time member and current chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and has worked on resolutions concerning the Yugoslav wars and Iraq War.
In his sixth consecutive term in the Senate, Biden has served for the sixth-longest period among current senators.
Sarah Palin has been governor of Alaska for just a bit over 18 months, and has managed to invoke a formal ethics investigation by the legislature and criminal investigation by the States Attorney General concerning her conduct during her very short tenure. The entire state of Alaska would only make it the 17th most populous city in the United States. Just ahead of Fort Worth.
Before that, she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. Population 9,000. The "powers and duties" for the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska? Check their municipal code:
1. Preside at council meetings. The mayor may take part in the discussion of matters before the council, but may not vote, except that the mayor may vote in the case of a tie;
2. Act as ceremonial head of the city.
