Original post made by Reality Check PLEASE!, Midtown, on Sep 3, 2008

According to Palin, not only did God say to attack Iraq, but also that a natural gas pipeline should be built in Alaska.

Pardon me, but this woman is a whackjob, no two ways about it.

Hey, God's three letters and so is Oil. There must be a connection, right?

When did God sign off the war in Iraq anyway. I must have missed Him signing off on the tablets.

There seems to be a few aged hippie feminists who are having difficulty adjusting to their retirement and so post the same stuff over and over.

There are senior citizens centers in Palo Alto for the isolated elderly

What's the matter, meg? Don't like the message so you insult the messengers?

Can you believe what this woman is going to say to the country tonight?


Excerpts: Remarks by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin
Vice Presidential Nominee to Address the 2008 Republican National Convention
Wed Sep 03 2008 19:12:27 ET

SAINT PAUL, Minn. - This evening Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican Party's vice presidential nominee, will address the 2008 Republican National Convention. Excerpts from the governor's remarks:

On her experience as a public servant:

"I had the privilege of living most of my life in a small town. I was just your average hockey mom, and signed up for the PTA because I wanted to make my kids' public education better. When I ran for city council, I didn't need focus groups and voter profiles because I knew those voters, and knew their families, too. Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities."

On why she is going to Washington, D.C.:

"I'm not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I've learned quickly, these past few days, that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country."

On energy policies that the McCain-Palin administration will implement:

"Our opponents say, again and again, that drilling will not solve all of America's energy problems - as if we all didn't know that already. But the fact that drilling won't solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all. Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we're going to lay more pipelines...build more nuclear plants...create jobs with clean coal...and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources. We need American energy resources, brought to you by American ingenuity, and produced by American workers."

On John McCain:

"Here's how I look at the choice Americans face in this election. In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change."

Man, she'd better deliver the hell out of those lines. Yawn.

Change? As in change from Bush? Liberals have been saying that for almost 8 years. McCain and Palin act like closet liberals in Repub clothing.

Hey, Clinton wanted to build a bridge to the 21st century. Palin wanted to build one to nowhere.

Makes no sense to me either. Someone must be a member of a union or something, to be so steeped in the importance of Democratic party politics that clear thought is no longer an option.

Suspend the superstructure of the parties, and look at the people. It's a different view.
