29. I hadn't seen Carville's reaction before...
I am nearly speechless again at just how reckless a choice this truly was. I can't even comprehend the implications.

Your disgraceful ass is about to get dropped into the BASS-O-MATIC. Hillary is coming, and I hear she's pissed.

Maybe you want to suddenly remember you have a special needs infant to take care of and head back to Alaska?
Permanently??

12. Only 1,291 views? This needs to be widely distributed.
Surely less than 30% of the voting public is insane enough to vote McCain/Palin. Please people, get educated before it's too late.

22. Barack has a PHD in Law from Harvard. Shit.
How could he possibly be as prepared as, say, Ronald Reagan was?

(For anyone who doesn't know, Ronald Reagan was an actor, before he was governor of California, and then president. And, BTW, the current governor of California, Arnold Schwarteneggar, was a weight lifter, and then an actor.)

58. JD is for "Juris Doctorate" & I found 3 yrs. of law school much more rigorous than my Ph.D. program
I did an "ABD" (All But Dissertation) in social sciences - that means I did all the course work for a Ph. D., wrote a Master's Thesis (and was a Teaching Fellow for 3 years). Facing the unpleasant reality that there were no teaching/tenure track jobs in my area - I cut my losses by not spending another couple of years expanding my master's thesis into a doctoral dissertation - my department liked to keep the PhD candidates spinning their wheels for 10 years on average because they provided cheap teaching for the undergrads.

I switched to law school and felt I learned as much substantive material in the first year of law school as in my three years of coursework on the Ph.D. By competing in the Jessup International Moot Court competition, I wrote several papers which were much more complex and difficult than my master's thesis. And the testing in law school was "blind", i.e., each student was randomly assigned a number known only to the registrar, so the professors had no idea whose papers they were grading and there could be no favoritism shown to suckups or legacies.

That said, the quality of the law degree depends on the quality of the law school. While everyone has to cram to pass their bar exams, the bar measures only book knowledge. The better law schools have the better professors, specialized law clinics, , moot court competitions, judicial internships and clerkships, specialized courses, etc. Those top professors and advisors teach their students to see all sides of an issue, to anticipate weaknesses in their own positions, to spot the weaknesses in the other side's arguments, and to present their cases forcefully and persuasively. Obama's alma mater, Harvard Law, is and always has been number one. To be elected Editor of the Harvard Law Review is the highest honor for an American law student. That's why Barack had over 600 law firms interested in hiring him.

25. John Mccain owes America an Alzheimer's test.
Edited on Mon Sep-01-08 07:47 AM by nc4bo
Bad judgment, why? Bad decision making not related to early symptoms of Alzheimer's or some other mental or physical condition, prove it.

33. i like what David Gergen said
... that women are saying on the CNN blogs that this choice is insulting.

That'd be a great theme for the Obama campaign to go with, to bring back any Hillary voters who might actually consider voting for Palin.

Love Bill Maher's comments, too. :rofl:

This is an awesome video. :applause:

every time they ask a Repug "Is this the best choice for VP your party could come up with? nobody says "yes." The usual response "we are excited about this choice." I'd love to hear what Romney, Huckabee, and all the others are saying behind closed doors!

38. The epic failure of John McCain.
Edited on Mon Sep-01-08 01:50 PM by seafan
With the astoundlingly reckless choice of Sarah Palin as his VP running mate, when she is currently under investigation in Alaska for abuse of power and is devoid of relevant education and experience to step in as president, John McCain demonstrates his hostility and callous indifference to the security of the people of the United States.



John McCain's Reckless Judgment Puts Nation at Risk


Governor Sarah Palin laughing, as a radio talk show host refers to cancer survivor and State Senate President Lyda Green, as "a bitch" and "a cancer".


McCain, responding "That's an excellent question.." to the question from the audience, "How do we beat the bitch?"


McCain, singing his little ditty, "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran"


McCain, offering up his wife as a contestant for the "Miss Buffalo Chip" contest.




While New Orleans drowned in Katrina, August, 2005


Let them eat cake.

56. As an American - I too am petrified
Should McCain win this election, and die in office, which is likely, we get a person who was governor for less than 2 years.
City government does not count as experience unless you are talking about corruption training because I think the most corrupt form of government is the local level. Talk about cronyism, the only reason most people run for city council or mayor is to get something done that benefits only them or their friends.

I finally figured out how to load libflashsupport on Fedora 9 (which I'm loving) and got to see the vid. OMG, she's not as bad as I thought.

She's worse.

McKook's a bigger vegetable than Raygun was and it was apparent on his first go at the Oval.

:wtf: is it with the GOP putting kumquats in the Oval?? The bigger :wtf: is the people who actually go and vote for kumquats!

I just don't get goopers at all.

Edited on Tue Sep-02-08 12:17 AM by windoe
and as another astute DUer wrote, an access point- which is infinitely more dangerous than mere incompetency. It is more obvious now than ever that it does not require a sober, sane or intelligent executive branch to further their agenda.

We MUST win this election, for all Americans, including those that cannot see through all this propaganda
