Who cares, Palin can shoot moose, she can shoot al qaeda too. She ready for job and be good at it. Atleast the republican idiots know where they stand, Our democrats are all over the place and those who arent are just like them aka the Clintons and their followers.
YOU WANT CHANGE THE GO FOR WHOLSALE CHANGE, AMERICA NOT READY FOR THAT, TOO MANY IDIOTS LIVING TO BE ABLE TO THINK, DEMOCRATS THINK TOO MUCH…

Brendan

@whoindatgarden, you're so mature. It's actually people like you who are the problem, not republicans or democrats. People who think that as long as the person can shoot, they should be good to lead. Maybe you should learn that distinction first.

"Our Democrats" I'd bet whoindatgarden is a republican. Poser/Kook. She isn't ready, not even close. Didn't know what the Bush Doctrine was but sure knows how to claim executive privilege. Charlie…

@whoindatgarden, wow. She can "shoot", great – fantastic (wait, who cares?) I agree with Brendan the problem is people like you.

Irrelevant! Let's demand details about issues from our future "leaders".

nice bit of editing..really proved your preconceived point…way to think objectively…you must be so proud

Have you ever asked yourself why there is so much confusion surrounding something that could be so obvious? Forget the fact that you can never get a straight answer from the media, you (a person living in the U.S.) can't even put any piece of news in it's proper context that would allow you to make a proper judgement. It's time to ask yourself who is really in charge and accept that they don't give a fu@! about you, but need your consent to stay in power. Don't be fooled by these wars, they are expensive ploys to get you to fall in line some more.

It sure is nice how she is tough enough to field a rifle and hunt, but she's not tough enough to field minor questions about her judgment regarding having her baby in Alaska (when she had to fly 8 hours to do so), what kind of parent she is when she has a pregnant daughter (very personal, sorry), why she wants to remove the right to abortion, or any other simple questions. How can she be tough and weak?

The Dems are going to mess it up again, even against McCain. All they have to do is say "we'll let McCain tell you what his views are" and run ads featuring him expressing opposite views of those he claims to have now. i.e. a governor or mayor is not fit to lead a nation if a 72 year old in poor helath kicks off.

John

Hmmm. The Bush Doctrine has been changed so many times how are you to know what they are asking when they bring it up? Idiot.

i'm all for obama, but anyway, you make it sound like he is attacking her experience just yesterday, instead of not stating that this was from a debate with other republican candidates in 2007. Click on the youtube video and see the date on youtube. "10/07: "I am prepared. I need no on-the-job training…" He wasn't attacking Palin directly, just those like her and his fellow candidates. In fact, he probably didn't even know she existed then.

If not to state the obvious, the point here is that McCain has, on several occasions, changed what he deems as "necessary qualifications" to be the president of the United States. Obviously this wasn't a reference to S. Palin, but it reflects how ridiculous it was for him to use clips of Joe Biden during the campaign saying Obama has to little experience. The exact same way it was absurd for his campaign to go after Obama using the phrase "lipstick on a pig" when McCain has done the exact same thing. It's slimy and mean politics.
That's what the republicans are good at, taking something they did and projecting it on their opponent. Like how they took a non serving, Connecticut born governor of Texas pretending to play cowboy and somehow made his seem more patriotic than the war hero he was running against. It's the exact same stuff people.

@whoindatgarden It's sad, but I can't tell if you're trolling or being really serious.

Great. Now Digg isn't just infected with HuffSpam, it's infected with reflected HuffSpam.
And, intellectually dishonest reflected HuffSpam at that, considering that the quote provided is from almost a year ago and is from a debate (peekURL.com/z3ga3t6) where he was referring to Giuliani and Romney, both of whom were running for president and not vice-president.

Jean Q. Publique

Why can't McCain/Palin relieve their aching sense of inadequacy without resorting to distortion, innuendo, and outright bald-face lies? If you've ever wondered about the answer to that question, then read on. There are a number of reasons they aren't telling us as to why they want to identify groups that are their political opposites and re-label them as jaundiced ranters in order to justify smear operations against them. In this comment, I will expose those reasons one-by-one, on the principle that I, hardheaded cynic that I am, have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people. I can therefore assure you that they quite like using the old 'La patrie en danger' ruse to garner support for their plan to spread conservative Comstockism all over the globe like pigeon shit over Trafalgar Square. If, after hearing facts like that, you still believe that they has deserve the mantle of greatness, then there is really no hope for you.
I act based on what I think is right, not who I think is right. That's why I place my time working with humanity to build an inclusive, nondiscriminatory movement for social and political change. It's also why I say that I am more than merely surprised by McCain and Palin's willingness to hire such low grade people and untruthful surrogates. I'm shocked, shocked. Not! And, as if that weren't enough, if you can go more than a minute without hearing McCain or Palin talk about their "world views" you're either deaf, dumb, or in a serious case of denial. Most "end time" believers are all into the "world view" manta.
McCain and Palin are locked into their present course of flashy flim-flim. They do not have the interest or the will to change their fundamentally impetuous actions. The point is that if everyone spent just five minutes a day thinking about ways to stand uncompromised in a country that's on the brink of the McCain/Palin-induced disaster, we'd all be a lot better off. Is five minutes a day too much to ask for the promise of a better tomorrow? I hope not, but then again, McCain and Palin say that a richly evocative description of a problem automatically implies the correct solution to that problem. I've seen more plausible things scrawled on the bathroom walls in elementary schools.
McCain/Palin wants to twist the words six ways for Sunday of anyone who doesn't fall into lock-step with their moronic musings. What's wrong with that? What's wrong is McCain and Palin's gossamer grasp of reality. At first, you might be unsure as to whether I find their accusations rather minatory. But on deeper inspection, you'll honestly conclude that if one could get a Ph.D. in Bulverism, McCain or Palin would be the first in line to have one. Before McCain/Palin initiated a false cold-war flap to help promote their stentorian hypnopompic insights, people everywhere were expected to maximize our individual potential for effectiveness and success in combating it. Nowadays, it's the rare person indeed who realizes that it's easy for armchair philosophers to theorize about McCain and Palin and about hypothetical solutions to the McCain/Palin problem. It's an entirely more difficult matter, however, when one considers that even when the facts don't fit, McCain and Palin always try to use them anyway. They still maintain, for instance, that the world can be happy only when their exclusive club of mouth droolers are given full rein.
That's all I have to say about McCain and Palin so I guess I'll stop now.

"DEMOCRATS THINK TOO MUCH"
Amazing that someone has made my point for me, and so clearly. And about themselves, no less? Amazing.
The war on intelligence that is happening in America has never been more clearly stated. SMART = Bad. SCIENCE = Devil. Americans are embracing STUPIDITY as an admirable trait. IGNORANCE as an admirable trait. Being too fucking stupid and oblivious to everything outside your "small-town" is somehow synonymous with courage, patriotism, and quality in candidate.
Anyone that votes for McCain is fucking moron. Democrat elitism? You're goddamn right. Some people are SMARTER than others, and BETTER at doing things effectively (hence the electoral college, the purpose of which is to buffer the idiotic votes of uneducated morons with an axe to grind). These are the people who need to be in charge, not some fucking yokel who's a "swell guy" (or swell girl in palin's case). Being an ignorant redneck, like most of America, is NOT qualification to be an international head of state.
WAKE UP!! So far as I can tell, the ideal American society for conservative republicans would be the fucking dark ages.

weli'llbedarn

I don't side with republicans or democrats, I don't favor either side. I'll vote based on who I think will give the better debate, and who will actually "change/unite" the nation. This may not make any sense to anyone. But I think that McCain/Palin in this case is a total idiot as some of you may agree. I mean, McCain was a POW, and he uses that to make him "important", that he's an american hero. I read once on a comment on youtube, quote, "..just because you're a POW, doesn't make you a hero…", I agree with that statement. The hero should be the one who rescues McCain's hanging b-hind from the Communist VC at the time. just because he was inprisoned, beat, and tortured, makes him a hero? Heck, he's lucky he was in a prison and didnt die. the heroes should be the men and women who died in combat.
But that's besides the point. I just want to state some things I found interesting from an article titles "WHITE PRIVILEDGE" by Tim Wise author of "WHITE LIKE ME". McCain and Palin are not ready for this job. McCain calling people "Gooks", offending hundred of minority, and yet he continues to use the work. As many of you have known, "gook" has had a lot of history, and now it is commonly used to name asian americans in a bad way. Obama has no foreign experience? Palin has NO, NADA!! foreign experience of then a class she took in college…how's that. Wise stated that Palin attended six different college, one of which she failed out of…and returned after making up some coursework at a community college.

I CAN SHOOT moose too

I can shoot too, i can shoot too!! I'm ready to by VP!! stupid…
