Riposte

Does the Jug Hussein Ears campaign really want to make a comment about Palin, with her inexperience, being a heartbeat away from the presidency? Bring it on guys! My reply: I would rather have someone inexperienced a heartbeat away from the presidency that someone with even less experience in the presidency.

Palin has more executive experience than Jug Husein Ears and Senator Hair Plugs combined. She's been a mayor. Yeah it was a small town but it's more executive experience than JHE and HP have combined.

She is the governor of the largest state in the Union. That's more executive experience that JHE and HP have combined.

While JHE has spent most of his time in the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate campaigning and making speeches, Palin has actually been governing and she's been a successful mayor and governor. Her resume looks much better than JHE.

JHE bases his foreign policy experience on going to Iraq twice and giving a speech in Germany.

Palin has been to the Middle East the same number of times as JHE has.

She's been to Germany as well but she didn't make a speech. Unlike JHE, she visited the wounded soldiers at Landstuhl. Despite his stated concern for our wounded soldiers in his acceptance speech, he chose to workout rather than visiting the troops he's so concerned about.

I'll bet she even has a thicker skin than JHE. I'll also bet her husband has been proud of his country for most of his life, unlike Mrs. JHE.

So yeah. Go ahead and play the inexperienced card. Bring. It. On.

Read this on No Quarter:

"Want to talk experience? Palin may come from a small state in terms of population, but she actually has carried out the task of governing. She has developed and presented budgets. She has appointed senior government officials. Fact is that she has more experience as a Mayor and a Governor than Obama, Biden, and McCain combined. She has actually spent time in Europe as a Governor visiting troops from her state who had been wounded in Iraq. Barack? [crickets] He was so busy running for the Presidency that he had no time to hold a single hearing on NATO and its challenges in Afghanistan."

Denny,
This post is perfect, perfect, perfect. I hope you keep picking up every criticism to reduce each one to powder. The leftists are so enraged and bitter. They're making themselves look brainless with their nonsense jabs at Governor Palin.

As a former Alaskan I called home to see what people had to say about her and they love her. She doesn't bend over for the big oil companies, she cares about conservation, but not at the expense of people and she isn't a trust fund baby. She's worked and worked hard to get where she's at...

I don't care if they say McCain is pandering to women by selecting her... I could care less about her sex. What I am is thrilled that there is FINALLY a real conservative in the race.

I like the fact that Biden's kid is deploying as a lawyer. Palin's kid is deploying as a grunt in an infantry brigade.

That's a huge difference.

We tend to forget that the US Army has armed the Alaska Scouts (mostly native folks) who patrol the far Northwest border of the US. Those soldiers are the first infantry line of defense for America, and they are under the control of the Alaskan governor.

Palin doesn't have any international relations experience? Obama/Biden don't even know of their existence.

Well, the Liberal Media is on the attack already, all in the guise of "commentary" on the Christ - I mean Chris - Matthews show. This week's show elicited the following comments:

1. That abortion was "not a big issue."
2. That Obama's Roman Coliseum speech was "Box Office."
3. That Obama doesn't have to worry about men OR women.
4. That the "Clinton Communion embraced Obama."
5. That the "experience argument" isn't "working for McCain."
6. That, according to Clarence Page, not only does Palin come from "nowhere" [how do you like THAT, Alaska!] but there will be a "bloodbath" in these last days of the campaign. (No, there will be a bloodbath in the streets on election night - that's my fear.)
7. When the "guest commentators" were polled as to the question "Is Palin a smart pick?" one replied, "Yes - but I HAVE to say that, because I'm covering the Republican convention."

And did anyone else hear Barbara Boxer say, almost immediately after Sarah's selection was announced, that Palin was a "dangerous choice" and that people were not going to pick a woman? And correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Boxer related to Hillary by marriage? Was that a stab in the back, or what?

You know what I'd REALLY like to see? A bitch-slapping contest between Michelle and Hillary on one side, and Sarah Palin on the other. Sarah would win with one hand tied behing her back.

Bring it on, Sarah!!! YOU GO, GIRL!!!!

Might be a good choice for him, but it won't sway me.

I don't vote for Dimocrats like John McCain.

Marksman2000: Dr Dobson and Glenn Beck are coming around- so can you. YES YOU CAN!! Give Sarah Palin a chance. For Pete's sake (and mine too) don't help Obama get elected!
thank you!

had dinner with my mother tonight and she was gushing about a trip to KC and visiting old haunts of Harry Truman. Even sat in his favorite booth. she had some anecdotes and she commented what a man of the people he was. I commented that perhaps that is what is so extraordinarily refreshing about Palin. We have not seen anything like this in my lifetime.

So Marksman, you gonna vote for a conservative like Jug ears?

Posted by: Alan on August 31, 2008 09:16 PM

Marksman, consider voting for McPalin if only to nullify one of Obama's dead voters? If you really think about it, the dead guy isn't really into it either. But c'mon man, we need all the anti-socialist votes on our side-hold your nose and vote for McPalin? Vote in favor of the 2nd Amendment/gun rights and Commander in Cheif at least?
