Skip to comments.What Palin Does
Posted on 08/30/2008 2:40:45 AM PDT by Puzzleman
1. Steps on the story of Obama's speech (and convention), and possibly the bounce coming from them, and wipes them off the news cycle. The Sunday news shows will be all-Palin, all of the time.
2. Sends Republicans into their convention on a huge head of steam.
3. Wipes out the image of McCain as the crotchety elder and brings back that of the fly-boy and gambler, which is much more appealing, and the genuine person.
4. Revs up the base AND excites independents, which no one else in the party, or perhaps in the world, could have accomplished...

They’re gonna hang her on Troopergate. Could get ugly.
Remember, Teddy Roosevelt was only Governor of New York for 2 years before he was on the ticket (and of course he became President almost immediately after becoming VP). Yes, he also charged up San Juan Hill. But his other experiences were a hodge podge of important and interesting jobs, but not really the stuff that would make him President at such a young age.
What he had, though, was character and a passion for fighting corruption.
And of course, he was good with a gun.
Palin is this generation’s Teddy Roosevelt!!!
What is, exactly, the protocol regarding kissing among the presidential and vice-presidential candidates and their wives/husbands?
Ha! This will end up helping her. Who wouldn’t use their office to help protect a relative from an abusive policeman?
Too bad. They kissed on stage in Dayton.
Indeed, too bad!
What in tarnashin is wrong with a warm handshake? I would never kiss my boss, and I would be appalled if my boss tried to kiss me.
Oh, well: The Hollywoodization of politics!
This pick is probably the only one (and like many never saw it coming)which could have gotten to turn around and decide after all (though I was going to sit this one out) to not only go to the polls, but open my wallet--albeit a small amount for now, until I see more signs of sanity from McPain
I am psyched!
Good list! I think that McCain hit a home run with this pick! I predict a landslide victory for McCain/Palin.
5) Convinced my wife to put a political bumper sticker on her car for the very first time. That’s a huge accomplishment!
Couldn’t agree more about the kissing business. Am I crazy or did Obama kiss Biden’s wife on the lips at the convention? I thought her goo-goo eyes at him throughout his big speech were embarrassing. Like many posters, I have torn up every solicitation for money from McCain without a second’s hesitation. Yesterday I joyfully donated. Man she is almost too good to be true!
It is predictable that they will attack Governor Palin for inexperience. They won't be able to stop themselves.
Every single time they do this, people will think (even if subconsciously) "Wait a minute! How much experience does THIS guy have?"
Do not think it will be to ugly since Biden started the “violence against woman’s act” which makes the democrats look supportive to women who are abused.
I’ve been thinking about the way BO planted a kiss not once but twice right on the lips of Mrs. Biden. It really startled me and seemed completely out of bounds. The more I reflected on this I thought it seemed as if he was trying to prove his manhood to those who think he may play for the other team.
Not to worry, she’s going to leave the dems sucking serious moose snot :)
I sure hope they go there.
*** Did everyone know that Palin is the ONLY candidate with Executive experience...??? ***
But McCain commanded a squadron. According to some on this board that's the same thing.
I disagreed. Commanding in the military in NOT the same as being in an executive position.
