aw crap. McCain was smart and picked a woman. Now he'll really steal all those stupid Hillary borg and "Democrats for McCain."
Why are the Republican's so much more savvy at manipulation?
If the Dems lose this election it'll be the biggest effing stuff-up in history.

Neither of them can make up their minds about anything because they are trying to please everyone and sell a product and it is a completely fucked up system.
In my opinion neither candidate has been particularly worse than the other about this.
However, I think there's some pretty clear differences in the way the country would be run. And if people with obviously different ideas about how things should be done vote for McCain just because he pulled this sleazy trick, well it makes me really sad.
But I'm starting to think the trick is so obvious no one will fall for it.
I mean people who really want to vote the McCain ticket will and that's cool.I just don't think Hillary voters will go running over to the other side.
I dunno about Hillary voters, but personally I really like Palin based on what I've seen so far. Maybe she doesn't have the experience to run a country, but as vice president she can gain that, while hopefully contiuing her MO of clearing out corruption.
It's not really much different than Obama's trick. "Vote for me, I have an old white guy too!"
...I don't much expect Obama to lose, though.

Palin may be a fine choice for the Republicans. I just think that by picking such a young inexperienced woman, McCain was making his motives very clear, yet Palin is sooooooo different from Hillary that it is sort of sickening.
Do you think McCain picked her because she is awesome or do you think he picked her to get at the woman voters?
Liking Palin for Palin is not my problem. Liking her just because she is a woman is. And McCain picking her just because she is a woman is.
I imagine he picked her because of both.
I really thought he would go with Mitt Romney, but people seem to hate Mormons so I didn't think that would be good for him.

People hate mormons. People hate black people. People hate women.
Man. People suck.
I hate people who suck.
Damn, we all fall into the trap.
I wonder if picking a woman is a good idea though...many conservative women do not like the idea of a female president.
...I maintain that it's OK to dislike someone according to their beliefs, but not according to their race or gender.

My new boss is a female reverend and she was comparing it to how women don't like to have women pastors or priests.

Me too. :)
The female preachers thing makes sense. It's in their book and all.

well that's not what they have against it
What if the person is a black female mormon?
It's like how people say Asians can't drive, and females can't drive, and elderly people can't drive... and I've always wondered what happens when an elderly asian female gets behind the wheel.
