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

When your policies turn out opposite of what you want and you stay with it than you are not fit to run this country. For example, when you believe that abstinence education is the only way($15 billion from bush/cheney) and your daughter gets knocked up than your fundamental belief is flawed. You need to change it before you destroy other families.
When you want to ban books from the libraries, and since the only want that are for banning books are adolf hitler & the christian coalition, than you are violating the rights of free Americans.
What this woman seems like to me is a mean, nasty, vindictive biatch hiding behind her conservative christian shield(she is neither).

well lets see, we had Clinton who made a mockery of the white house, took bags full of money funnelled thru the back door of the white house to the DNC, getting BJs from interns while talking to heads of state, how many people have you known who have committed suicide, google clinton/suicide and see what you come up with!!!!! almost got in a war with china, had ships claiming to bomb California off the US if we signed a treaty with Taiwan...oh the list goes on,....clinton bombed a Sudanese pill factory to knock his infamous stain on the dress off the front pages of the news also killing hundreds of innocent people..and you talk about nominating your friends sister, shed probably do an ok job.... Im (was) talking about TMZ comparing a beauty queen years ago to her now.....Im not proud of GW now and the war but how many of you reading these comments are making money off the economy and the stock market now??? Im guessing alot since we have more millionaires in this country than ever before...guess our economy is doing fine. What happened to the arguement the war was an excuse for getting oil???? none coming here from Iraq cheap, if at all....I guess Im an idiot who has voted every election since I turned 18, 28 yrs ago.....I have been politically active and not a Tia Tequilla that TMZ had on their show a few days ago...my GOD celebrities are such air heads, most of them anyways......guess I covered alot of issues since this one thread covers so many......Ms Palin is going to make a great VP...beauty queen or not....adios amigos

How can a person who supported Hilliary Clinton vote for the McCain-Palin team? They are another GWB -Cheney with lipstick. Look at the issues. Listen to her lies. Read what the Anchorage Daily News and other Alaskan papers have reported prior to her being picked for V.P.

She is no Hilliary Clinton.

She stretches and tarnishes the truth

"In high school, Palin once helped her father, Chuck Heath, dress a moose he shot in the morning before going to his job as a teacher," wrote the Anchorage Morning News.

" 'As he was butchering it, he asked me to hold the moose eyeballs because he was going to bring them into the classroom that morning (for a lesson), and I just couldn't do it,' Palin told the Daily News last year. 'He was really sympathetic.' "

The Anchorage Morning News wrote: "Palin was once a sports writer...Susan Morgan, former managing editor for The Frontiersman, Palin's hometown newspaper. "She wrote stories the right length, her copy was super clean. She was a dream."

So much for the rumor that Palin can dress a moose in the field or a sports anchor for a TV news station.

Sarah Palin's education does not qualify her to be president.

"Palin was born in Idaho. Her family moved when she was only a few months old to Alaska, where she was raised.
She began college at Hawaii Pacific University, a private, nonsectarian school in Honolulu. She attended only as a freshman during the fall of 1982. She was in the business administration program as a full-time student. From Hawaii Pacific, Palin transferred to North Idaho College, a two-year school in Coeur d'Alene, about 30 miles east of Spokane. She attended the college as a general studies major for two semesters, in spring 1983 and fall 1983.

From North Idaho College, Palin transferred 70 miles south to the University of Idaho, She majored in journalism with an emphasis in broadcast news. She attended Idaho..from fall 1984 to spring 1985. She then returned to Alaska to attend Matanuska-Susitna College in Palmer in fall 1985. Then she returned to Idaho, for spring 1986, fall 1986 and spring 1987, when she graduated. Despite her journalism degree, she does not appear to have worked for the college newspaper or campus television station, school officials said."

http://www.adn.com/sarah-palin/story/516085.html

So basically Palin attended five colleges in six years before graduating from the University of Idaho in 1987 without appearing to have worked for the college newspaper and campus TV station. Sounds like she was digging deep for something in which to obtain a degree.

On the other hand, after high school, Barack Obama moved to Los Angeles, where he studied at Occidental College for two years. He then transferred to Columbia University in New York City, where he majored in political science with a specialization in international relations. Obama graduated with a B.A. from Columbia in 1983, then worked for a year at the Business International Corporation and then at the New York Public Interest Research Group.

"A graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he served (as the first black president) of the Harvard Law Review, Barack Obama worked as a community organizer and practiced as a civil rights attorney before serving in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004....He announced his campaign for the U.S. Senate in January 2003. After a primary victory in March 2004, Obama delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004. He was elected to the Senate in November 2004 with 70% of the vote."

"As a member of the Democratic minority in the 109th Congress, he helped create legislation to control conventional weapons and to promote greater public accountability in the use of federal funds. He also made official trips to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. During the 110th Congress, he helped create legislation regarding lobbying and electoral fraud, climate change, nuclear terrorism, and care for returned U.S. military personnel. After announcing his presidential campaign in February 2007, Obama emphasized withdrawing American troops from Iraq, energy independence, decreasing the influence of lobbyists, and promoting universal health care as top national priorities."

The reason I am voting for Obama is because of his votes in the U.S. Senate on environmental issues about which I care.

Obama is a real jerk and a phoney....he should be on the $3 bill...like he really cares a flyin f__k about anyone but himself...if he was half the man his mother was he would address all these accusations about his association swith these shady characters....
Write? Ayers? Farrakahn? amnd the rest of the cronies he is in bed with....

I am no repub or dem ...I have a mind of my own and am looking for someone with integrity to run this country...

and what's with this idiots wife??? Mrs. Obama is finally proud of this country? what the hell took her so long ? dam wench...

Sarah is more qualified to run the country then Barrak Hussein Obama....at least she ran a state...all Obama does is run his mouth and no substance ever comes out of it...only BS....

are these people for real? do they really think Obama is all of a sudden going to vote to reduce taxes ?
With a dem congress to help him all he is going to do is raise taxes...and the count continues...94, 95, 96 times to raise taxes where will it end?

Also, who all of a sudden proclaimed this guy the president? the liberal media?? well wake up media cause he will not win...
