She's Not Just Like US

9/6/2008 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah PalinSo this is interesting. US Weekly is losing subscribers because of its Sarah Palin cover story: "Babies, Lies and Scandals."

There were reports that as many as 10,000 subscribers bailed, but US told Page Six the number was closer to 1,000. Apparently the mag -- and to be fair just about everyone else in the media -- misjudged Palin's impact once she opened her mouth.

We put some polls up yesterday. With 200,000 votes, 51% called Palin the biggest star of the convention. Obama came in second with 45%. McCain got 3% and Biden 1%.

We also asked who you'd most like to have a beer with -- 43% Palin, 28% Obama, 16% McCain and 13% Biden.

US Weekly next week -- "Biden: Old Men, Lies and Scandals."

For those of you who know what Obama really stands for, please stand up. Even better, for those of you who know of a single accomplishment by Barack Obama since he has been in the Senate, I would love to hear it. He has not authored a single bill. Being a Republican or Democrat has nothing to do with wanting to reform a screwed up (not broken or bad) system.

For those of you who want to soak it to the rich or big business, think about it . . . who provides that vast majority of the jobs out there? If you take a significant portion of their income away, do you think that their car and house are going to go away or employee jobs???

If she was a Democrat with 100% the same qualifications and credentials, the Dems, Hollywood and the mainstream press would all be supporting her as the 2nd coming (behind Barack, of course). If you deny this, then you are only fooling yourself.

Down With Obama    

For the record, I have researched her background and know she has sound judgment. She isn't going to cancel your library card or take away your rights. She is about reform and she took on the biggest "good ol' boys club" there ever was in Alaska. Ya, she didn't sell the Jet on Ebay, but it is the idea that she wasn't going to use it like some elitist and she put the money back into the common fund from the eventual sell.

Dear Liberals: Have no fear, we will protect your right to throw your babies in the trash can. If everyone was as smart as they think they are, it would seem to me that abortion would be obsolete by 2008. Women are educated, have birth control given to you if you can't afford them. what more do we need. someone to call you everyday and remind you to take a pill? Come on Ladies, we know accidents do happen but in 2008 in should be the exception rather than the rule. Abortion is NOT birth control.

All these people who mocked Obama for receiving votes based on race, should now look in the mirror because many of them are voting for Palin based solely on gender, (and race in some instances). I especially love the ones who call Obama all the scary boogie man buzz words and act like he's going to take all our freedoms away, yet Palin has demonstrated a willingness to take away such basic rights as what books you can read. Ads are playing on right wing sites mocking Obama's relationship with Kwame Kilpatrick. I wonder how many ads they'll make about Palin and Ted Stevens? How many current investigations is Obama under? To quote Larry the Cable Guy, I could do this all day, but I'm sure some ultra-right-wing zombie will wipe the kool-aid from their lips and spit some more ridiculous conservative nonsense about how it's all lies and this woman can do no wrong in between walking on water and popping out babies (because not only does she not believe in abortion, obviously protection and responsible sex aren't high on her list either). The greatest thing anyone can say this woman has done so far is give a good speech at the RNC, yet they call Obama the empty mouthpiece.

Yep, Palin is a real gem all right, and per request I didn't even go there with her personal issues.....

CORVUS CORAX,
Guess what, unless you a brain surgeon or a rocket scientist, they won't take you in Canada. This isn't 1960, have you ever tried to move to another country. It isn't as easy as you think. They won't just take you in because you want to move there.

Independent Voter From Florida    

As an independent Voter (I voted for Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton Twice, Gore) I think that the attacks on Ms. Palin have been despicable and with her addition to the ticket I am ready to vote for McCain.

I think she will be a wonderful VP and has what it takes to become President.

It's scary that people know nothing about her and are trashing her. OLD ENOUGH, c'mon you can't honestly believe what you wrote! You're old enough to know that you should use facts, not scare tactics. You don't KNOW what she would do. And she wouldn't be able to DO those things, anyway. You may disllike her politics, but you don't have to use generalizations and ignorant statements, like "wants to be in your bedroom". Wait, maybe that's all you have...

So glad to hear that US lost readers over their WAY over the line one sided story that brought Palin's minor children into their cover. I will never buy another US weekly.

Never in a political battle has any minor children been attacked in this way. Obama's children have not been brought up, nor the ability of her or his wife to care for their children while both carry on full time jobs. NOR has anyone brought into this mess Joe Biden's failure of a son(the other son that wasnt featured on the DNC). He is a drug addict and alcoholic... AND he is not a minor....

Just ridiculous to attack this Palin because she is a woman.

So far she has raised interest. But I'm not voting on someone being interesting. All I know thus far is that she can shoot/kill, hunt, swim, camp, scratch, fart, mock, sneer, try to sell a plane on ebay...yawn!! That sure is going to keep my food and wages coming. When is she going to talk about what she will do to help the economy, end the war and something positive for us? Her wild life story is starting to irk. Talk about the issues that matter.

Old Enough    

BTW for those of your that don't believe that the Fed. Govt can't control planned parenthood. Think again. Bush has already mandated that federally funded health clinics can't even MENTION abortion as an option to a woman that enters for help without fear of losing their funding and NOW they are trying to do the same with Contraceptives altogether. Therefore federally funded clinics which take care of the uninsured or under insured would only be allowed to help women that were pregnant. As you should know this would not only mean a LOT of unwanted pregnancies but also an increase in STDs. Palin's own family is a PRIME example that abstinence only teachings DO NOT work. Additionally the next President will most likely select at least 2 new justices for the Supreme court. If you like your freedoms that the Constitution affords you vote against the McCain/Palin ticket!

Down With Obama    

Anybody who says "all she has done is give a good speech" must be thinking about Obama. Sarah was a Mayor and a Governor, both have more executive decision making that Obama has ever had. Ask any politician and they will tell you the hardest jobs are Mayor and Governor because you are working in the trenches ever day. It is easy to sit at the capital and have other people cast your votes for you like Obama. He hasn't even been present for most of his "votes".
