They sure do seem to be beating her up!
Every time you turn around there's another scathing article out there about John McCain's new VP choice.
Let's see what I know about Sarah Palin so far...
She's a first term governor from Alaska.
She has five children ranging in age from 19 to 4 months old.
She made the decision to have her youngest even though she knew the baby would be born with down syndrome.
Her oldest daughter is 5 months pregnant. Somehow, this is the biggest news story of the freaking millennium!
She's a former Miss Alaska runner up. Would've been better if she'd won.
Her husband had a DUI 22 years ago.
She tried to get a state trooper fired that was going through a messy divorce with her sister. Apparently, he's a real ass too!
Oh yeah, apparently, she went to an Alaskan Independence Party convention. Some in this party want a vote on whether Alaska should secede from the union. Maybe, if Obama gets elected, they should! Funny, but no one in the MSM has a problem with Obama and every other democratic candidate for president attending the DailyKos convention. If you're not familiar with these crazy bastards, then you need to get familiar! But if you really want to get a taste for this website, read the comments that follow the articles, that's where the real moon bats hang out! I'm not putting in a link, find it yourself.
These are the kinds of stories that are coming out of the MSM these days.
Now, what I hear from republicans is that she's a reformer.
She fought the establishment in her state and won. She ran against an incumbent republican governor and won, as a republican. This is the kind of thing you don't hear about all that often in politics. She's fought corruption in the Alaskan Republican Party as a Republican. Most politicians wouldn't get away with something like that, but she did.
She has a near 80% approval rating in her state.
She's a life long member of the NRA.
She cut 15% worth of pork from the Alaska state budget. A budget that's by the way, a lot bigger than Obamas campaign budget. Alaska's budget for this year is $11.2 billion!
Here's one I heard in answer to who has more experience. You see, Obama has no executive experience. He's never run anything. Not a town, city, or state. So, in answer to the democratic complaint that Palin has no experience, the republicans fired back that she's run the state of Alaska for the last two years. Obama's response to this was that he's run his campaign for the last two years. So now, that tells me that applying for a job is good enough experience to have the job.
Here's how it works. I decide I want to be a brain surgeon. I apply for the job of brain surgeon and tell you that my qualifications for being a brain surgeon are that I've been applying for the position for the past two years so I must be qualified...You ready? Come on, lay on the table.
So, the next scathing news story you hear about Palin keep in mind the picture shown below. PDS stands for Palin Derangement Syndrome. Something the MSM is suffering from lately.
