Sarah Palin Was Born In Idaho

...and graduated from the University of Idaho. It's not Boise St, but it'll do.

Heh. Interesting. So she's happily married, has five kids, staunchly conservative in every way, and went to school in Idaho. Whomever are Mormons going to vote for now?

(Brilliant choice, I thought.)

And she has all that great experience in foreign policy and economics and really is ready to command our gargantuan military. There are probably 3 or 4 people living on my block that are as qualified as Palin.

Of course, this just goes to show that when you really don't want government anyway and don't believe government can or should do anything, it doesn't matter who runs it as long as they can get the votes of the morons who make their choice for President based on fetuses, gays and guns. Heckuva job Johnnie. Way to show us that judgment that comes from years of experience.

Hm, lack of time in government and foreign policy experience...sounds a lot like someone else...and that doesn't seem to bother the democrats. What can you really say to trash Palin that doesn't reflect just as badly on Obama?

The problem is not Sarah Palin. The problem is McCain. When faced with the decision of who to select as his VP, given his age and health, a person more likely to actually become President than most, he selected someone with virtually no relevant experience because he thought it would be good for him politically.

That's just the kind of decision making we've had for the last 8 years - putting partisan politics ahead of the nation's interest.

This is the kind of decisionmaking we can expect from a McCain Administration. It's the old Fire, Ready, Aim strategy.

Is that why she talks so funny? She sounds like a redneck!

I'll refer all "experience" comments to my new post.

I love the pick. It was brilliant.

Oh, and while she was born in Idaho, she grew up in Alaska, so any funniness in her dialect would be Alaskan. Us Idahoans speak just fine, thank you.

Palin is just like Bush. In Alaska she fired all the experienced and competent staff and hired people that would stay in lock step with her no matter how irratic that step might me and have them greatful and thankful for a job that no one else in their right mind would give them for a job they were incompetent to do
