First Read - Efforts to Pander to Hillary Voters Blows Up - Republicans Keep Booing Hillary
I wonder whether someone brief Sarah Palin that the Republican party is hostile to women and women issues, and that McCain voted against the Violence against Women Act, which Biden sponsored. It turns out that even in Pennsylvania, Republicans are booing Hillary and references to the achievements of Democratic women. Of course, this is not getting any play on Big Media, which is trying to cover up the fact that McCain and Palin's agenda is completely hostile to the positions of Obama and Hillary Clinton. I am sure Palin will repeat the pandering gig when their are no fellow Republicans present.

Day after boos, Palin skips nod to ClintonPosted: Sunday, August 31, 2008 7:18 PM by Mark Murray
Filed Under: 2008, Clinton, Palin
From NBC/NJ's Matthew E. Berger
OFALLON, MO -- While Gov. Sarah Palin gave essentially the same speech today as she has twice before, one big thing was missing -- any reference to Hillary Clinton.

Palin, the presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee, spoke alongside McCain and two former Republican presidential challengers -- Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney -- at a minor league baseball stadium here.

She began her speech by talking about her trip to Mississippi earlier in the day, and calling on people in the Gulf region to obey warnings to evacuation.

To the citizens of the Gulf Coast area, your lives and many others are in balance, she said. And success of law enforcement and emergency workers and our great National Guard depends on your cooperation.

After that, she went back to the stump speech she delivered on Friday and Saturday. But she skipped the entire section in which she highlighted the achievement of having a woman on the ticket -- as well as her praise for those who came before her, Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton. Yesterday, when campaigning in Pennsylvania, she received some boos from the audience when Clintons name was mentioned.

It is unclear why the campaign cut the paragraphs, which were widely praised Friday for appealing to Clinton supporters who may feel disenfranchised by the Obama campaign, especially after Clinton was passed over for the vice presidential nomination.

12. After every move by the McCain camps I hold my breath
Because I'm afraid he'll luck out with one of his desperate attempts at turning his campaign around, but he seems to have inherited the "un-golden" touch from Bush where everything he touches turns to shit, and the Obama campaign has proven itself more than competent enough to handle anything that comes their way. Palin is just the latest example of the republican Midas touch.

Even with the M$M desperately trying to prop up McGrumpy, I have a feeling that their plan to have him speaking from an area of devastation is not going to come out well. Bush, for the most part, could sober up enough and do his "man of the people" schtick passably for photo ops, but McCain doesn't have that ability. He's long sold out his soul to a worse extent than Bush even, and all that's left is a bitter, old man whose only reason for running for president is to be president. He won't be able to muster up a display of concern for what's going on if the hurricanes don't peter out (which I hope they do because that area doesn't need any more destruction, and their photo op would be even more meaningless).

13. She is no Hillary Clinton, not even close.She won't be able to connect with a Clinton supporter base
I wasn't a huge Hillary Clinton fan in the primaries. I pretty much supported Obama throughout the entirety. But I would never count her out on her guts or political savvy, But among all her qualities, her knowledge of issues are what I felt were her greatest strength. Its not just that she was a woman, but she was a strong woman with a strong set of tools in the world of American politics, which is sadly, still mostly a man's world. I get the sense that a lot of women supported her because she was a woman that knows what she is doing and not simply because of being a woman in and of itself. My wife has taught me that women don't just cling to other women in power situations because of their gender, but moreso because the women some of them may cling to are a GREAT EXAMPLE of how women are just as capable as men. Hillary Clinton is one of our best examples of women being able to achieve political greatness for all the right reasons. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, does NOT fit that bill, in my opinion.
