McCain's VP

Miss Alaska Loser

8/29/2008 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Before she was named McCain's Vice Presidential nominee today, no one except for the seven people who live in Alaska ever heard of Gov. Sarah Palin -- or that she came in second place at the 1984 Miss Alaska pageant.

Sarah Palin
Palin did win Miss Wasilla and the coveted Miss Congeniality award. So who cares what her
economic plan is?


V.P. Nominee was once Miss Wasilla, Alaska

Anyone can read a speech off of a teleprompter...the real Palin will be exposed in her debates with her counterpart. her election as Governor of Alaska just reflects the mood of this country towards all of the dumb ideas and under the table deals that have taken place over the last 8 years...I was on the fence with these two "Presidential" candidates, but I would rather have Biden as a possible Prez than this woman.

i wasn't overly enthused about mccain but i thought he had a secret weapon in his beautiful articulate wife. now with gov palin on the ticket, i'm so excited. i really believe the jackass party , even with their allies on the left, the communist party, the socialists, the media, the bigots who will vote for obama solely because of his melanin, etc. hasn't got a chance of gaining the white house and may not even retain a majority in the senate. this lady is . thank god. she is exactly what we need at this time.

so she gets the "hot chick" vote for many men and the sypathy vote from many women, but what does that do to your rights as a woman or the rights of that woman you love at home??... she is abstinence only... that means no teching your kids about birth control... uhm.... I think the proof of that method is obvious. all kids make mistakes and all, but a shot-gun wedding santioned by the republican party??... kinda scary folkjs, and so many of you out there are just willingly going along with it??

Stop and Think    

OK everyone.. lets stop and think here... What exactly is Palin's experience to become Vice President.. Stop and think.. so she won a beauty pagent.. Does that qualify her? So she had a Downs syndrome baby.. (So did I, but did that qualify me for VP?).. What exactly is her political experience... Stop and think here.. Less then 2 years as govenor... A few years as a mayor of a small town?? So, she likes to hunt and has a bear rug in her livingroom.. Does that qualify her for a VP slot? She likes Alaskan sports.. Does that qualify her for a VP spot??? So she is a woman.. Does that qualify her for a VP spot? So she has a son in the Army and who will be going over to Iraq.. So do many of us.. Does that quilfy us to become VP candidates?? Her qualifications are so liminted, all we are really hearing about is what she likes and she does.. Stop and think here!! Whatr she likes and does is not experience!!! Where is her experience with other countries.. and other then a son going to Iraq, her experience with the war over there?? She has gone and talked to a few soldiers over there.. I don't call that experience.. Where is her policy making experience over there and with forgien affairs?? None that I know of.. People.. it is now time to stop and think!! The way I did.. I was going to vote for McCain until he nominated her as a VP candidate and I found out her lack of experiencs.. All the fluffy extras are nice and she seems like a really nice person to get to know... but not as a VP candidate.. PEOPLE... STOP AND THINK!!!!!!!

well for all the "maverick" talk and the smokescreening... McCain AND noe PALIN both are not going to let the sex education or the abortion rights stand as they are if given any chance to chnage them... look it up.... McCain is all pro-life and Palin obviously didn't get the abstinence only message across to her daughter very well... if this was not a "moral party" candidate and all the morality superiority crap that has been rammed down our throats over the last 8 years I might not care so much... but a vote for this ticket is a vote to set this nation back, not forward, andwhen they say reform... they do not mean for the regular American, they mean for the self-righteous and the privilaged. ARe you one of those... if you answer yes... then by all means vote McCain ....
but if youi want to be able to have your children grow up and be free of morality judgements based on a SINGLE FAITH and zealots standards in office... vote for anything else....we want change... not opressive faith based rulership

you guys have to be kidding. Obama is "CHANGE" that represents anything that is on anyones mind. Maybe if you want "Obama Change" you should pack up and move to China because that is what you would get. I hear things are great there. - (RIGHT) Obama has stated no real agenda. I hear "JUST WORDS" from him. So, if I want to have muffins and coffee when I am standing in line at the incompetent post office run by our government...I guess that represents "CHANGE." Wake up and smell the coffee. I have not witnessed a terrorist attack since 9/11 in the US. ......and that could have been avoided if Clinton had done his job and caught Bin Ladin when he had the chance. But....we forget about that don't we?

1) List 3 qualifications to be president that Obama possesses
2) list 3 leader ship qualities in which he has managed people and made fiscal decisions .
3) list what legislation he has sponsored in his ENTIRE legislative career in Illinois and the US SENATE. Name one bill..
4) what does he plan on changing that the US taxpayers can afford?

It is obvious, that Sarah Palin...the VP candidate far surpasses any qualification Obama has and HE is running on for President.

SCARY! And you believe. So sad. Go McCain!

PALIN IN HER SPEECH REPEATEDLY RIDICULED OBAMA'S ROLE AS A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER. OBAMA WAS A COMUNITY ORGANIZER AT THE AGE OF 23. AT THE SAME AGE PALIN WAS A BEAUTY PAGEANT CONTESTANT.

DID ANYONE SEE PARIS HILTON'S AD RESPONSE TO JOHN MCCAIN? THERE IS A MOMENT WHEN SHE PARROTS AN ENERGY PROPOSAL THAT WAS A COMPROMISE BETWEEN MCCAIN AND OBAMA. AT THAT MOMENT IN TERMS OF DELIVERY SHE WAS NO DIFFERENT FROM SARAH PALIN........MY POINT IS THAT SOMEONE CAN PARROT A WRITTEN SPEECH EVEN IF THEY DON'T HAVE A CLEAR GRASP OF THE CONCEPTS.

ONE SPEECH IS NOT ENOUGH TO DECLARE PALIN'S COMPETENCE.

OBAMA ALSO GAVE A GREAT SPEECH AT THE 2004 DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION..........SINCE THEN HE HAS BEEN VETTED BY 19 MONTHS OF VERY DIFFICULT CAMPAINING AND BEAT THE ODDS TO BE RATIFIED BY OVER 18 MILLION VOTES....HE HAS EARNED HIS STANDING WITH THE PEOPLE.
