    When McCain was attempting to ignite some scandalous fires concerning Obama's small donor money supporters he let this out quote

    Just so we're clear: If you call yourself a feminist and/or you supported Hillary Clinton, and you are now supporting John McCain and Sarah Palin, you are an utter fool IMO.

    Thank you for this. Every feminist I know, myself included, is disgusted at Palin's use of the title on herself.

    And is it even possible to be a "conservative feminist", as McCain mentioned "liberal feminists" in the quote.

    So he finally admits that his choice was just a gimmick, like many of his other policies (gas tax holiday, 5k tax credit, etc).

    Yet nearly half the country apparantly still likes him. Wats that say about our country?:(

    I really want to know if Palin is aware that she is being used, and if so, does she care or is she just so doggone happy to be talkin' to the pro-American's that she doesn't give a rat's hind side?

    I actually hold out hope that she is that stupid. Because the alternative is that she has zero dignity, and I think that's much worse.

    Oh come on, every Republican ive seen being interviewed proclaims her to be a great choice (thats including huckabee on MSNBC). It's amazing to see how quickly supporters (on both sides) pick up their parties catchphrases and spew them forth in interviews. I think it was only 2 hours between a rally and me watching a GOP member give one of the current ayers lines to a reporter.

    Palin is getting what she wants (and a hell of a lot more than she merits). She is a good little neocon theocrat. However, she would not get a national stage, being governor of a state, with a total population less than Seattle, and geographically hidden from the rest of the country. Now she has her big chance to shine. The question is, will her performance win her accolades, or Dan Quayle cocktail jokes? Right now, I would say the latter.
