I disagree with her on many things. But I admire her diligence when it comes to wanting to make government smaller.  She is noted for cutting waste and spending. Where after hearing Obama's speech,  you needed a calculator to keep count of the number of new government programs he wants to put in place.

Ah, see I have alot to learn. But are these really bad things? I don't know if Biden can really tear her apart. She sounds like an independent thinker.

Or more rightfully put:
Destroying the economy, environment, and one of our most beautiful national parks while at the same time making it easier to pollute and delaying the energy crisis!

Just sayin', he wants to be elected, and I think this choice might help him. Maybe cynical and pandering, but smart.

What's smart about it?  You can count the pro-life Hillary supporters on one hand!  Seriously, I think this whole "disgruntled Hillary supporter" thing is gonna blow over before the election.  Before they were Hillary supporters they were Democrats and they'll be Democrats in the voting booth.  

All the Republicans have been able to use against Obama is his inexperience.  Now that's off the table.  And this less than single term governor would likely be President if McCain's health continues to deteriorate.  Of course, she's got a high approval rating!  She just replaced a corrupt Republican a year and a half ago--she's still in the honeymoon phase! laugh.gif  If Obama isn't "ready to lead," how is this freshman governor gonna be "ready?"  

But that's how the Republicans play it nowadays, no convictions, just opportunism.

This appointment is right in line with the current Admin's corrupt appointment policies.  Instead of "Good job Brownie," it'll be "Good job, Paly!"

I categorically disagree. The drilling area is minuscule, and far from the natural beauties of the park.

"Delaying the energy crisis!" What an odd, Obamaesque statement. Like delaying the energy crisis is a bad thing.

Cheers to you, too.

The drilling in ANWR will be equivalent to the size of a postage stamp on a football field.  Nothing to get all excited about.

I think we can all agree that fixing the energy crisis is far better then delaying it, no?
Especially when delaying it might create a REAL crisis in the future.

The park and other wild areas around the world have already been destroyed by oil, even though they were not close to the drilling sites in general.

Heard of Oil spills? Perhaps pipeline leakage?

Besides: Who's to trust corporations to do the right thing if granted access to the parks? Corporations don't give a **** about the environment, and they are going to do what is cheapest, ethical or not.


I think this picture exemplifies another important point:

In addition, you accidentally forgot to address the fact that more oil drilling will just mean continual pollution.

Smart move for McCain.

Seriously though, I HATE this woman.

Lets take a look.

Wants to ruin one of our most beautiful national parks? Check.

Wants more oil, oil, and oil? Check

Claims that it wouldn't be bad if "alternatives to evolution" were taught in school? Check.

Anti-abortion rights? Check.

Anti-gay Liberties? Check.

Well I'm pro-life but good god... she's a Bible thumper...

Funny, when I go interviewing for a job it's all about my experience, achievements, qualifications and references to be in that position.

How silly to expect the same of the President.

I think you're mistaking real experience, rightly measured in "achievements, qualifications and references," for the Republican talking-point version of experience, based solely on time in office--heretofore, anyway.  Now they'll be singing a different tune.

Your photo seems to make my point, that the drill area is minuscule.

How much oil spilled in the Gulf of Mexico when Katrina hit?

I'm confused.

What sort of experience is there besides on the job ("time on office") experience?

When I go for a job all the postings say "Must have 5-7 years direct experience with ABC", "Must have 7-10 years hands-on experience with XYZ", "Must have N-years experience in the <whatever> business field", etc etc etc.

Is there another source of 'experience' I don't know about?

How so?

Gov. Palin has more executive buck-stops-here/make-the-hard-choice experience in her little finger than Obama hs in his whole body.
