Palin Using Her Kids For Cheap PhotoOps Issues Beyond Palo Alto, posted by Alice in Wonderland, a resident of the Charleston Meadows neighborhood, on Sep 3, 2008 at 6:27 pm
"Right now, it looks like they're being used by the campaign more than the media are using them," said John Matviko, a professor at West Liberty State College in West Virginia and editor of "The American President in Popular Culture."
If you doubt this scenario, consider this: On Wednesday morning, a teenage boy from Alaska stood in a receiving line on an airport tarmac, being glad-handed by the potential next president of the United States — because he got his girlfriend pregnant. TV cameras were lined up in advance. The mind boggles.

You do do just not get it, Sarah was a major win tonight, I may not agree with all her policies but she sure defended her family and children from the sewer attacks against them and delivered an excellent speech tonight, she changed the calculus of this election, if she can follow thru this will be enormous for womens dignity.

I found passion and sincerity in her speech. Everyone makes a gaffe now and them. Did you find Obama's gaffe about out nation having 57 states hilariously and shockingly ignorant - or his comments in private about "bitter people"?

Palin blew the top off with that speech. Your problem is that you felt it in your gut - and if you didn't, you're not alive. Tonight, Sarah Palin energized her base just as much or more than Obama has done. Get ready for a fight to the finish, with a woman who won't quit. Her speech was a very wide ranging review of the Obama hypocrisy. I can't wait until she tears Biden's head off.
