I think they are getting a huge backlash. Andrea Mitchell said there was an angry woman who asked her why are you all doing this to Palin. Of course, Andrea, who is a liar or in denial said, oh, no, it wasn't US it was the bloggers.

There's some old b,itch on there now oh my god ugly woman saying what the obama campaign is going to do blah blah blah.

Brian

For the last 5 days Obama's team has been saying the same thing "more of the same".

That's all they can come up with.
Yeah.....the first woman GOP VP in history.
Same ol' same ol' you're right Barry.

just my opinion but I think Barry is in a state of shell shock over this.
I don't think he knows WTF to do.

Biden isn't even saying anything.

Imus was right about just WATCHING her.
You don't even have to listen to what she said.
Just watching her it was remarkable.

So who thinks that when she does interviews she'll shrivel up and disappoint??
lol

bella

Chris Matthews yelling at Pat Buchanan asking him is she going to answer the hard questions. Buchanan said they should run the campaign the way they want to and they don't owe you a damn thing,

Can you imagine anybody on MSNBC talking about asking anyone hard questions? The way they have swooned over Obama. Boy, the tables are sure turned now. I don't think the thrill is running down Chris Matthews' leg at this point. He is getting shrill.

I don't think they have to worry about it though because she can and will answer questions, in their own good time.

bella

I mean, really, she has only been chosen for a week now. And all they can think of to say is she hasn't been on Meet the Press yet. Good grief.

Independents weigh in on Palin.

Will Imus end up on a Fox Affiliate simulcast?

Ree

Palin ought to use this song for her slogan...every time they attack her in the MSM, she gets stronger.

I turned to MJ during a commercial today and heard them saying she had to go on Meet the Press to be credible - since when? It's so stupid. A few million watch Meet the Press out of hundreds of millions of Americans. Mika was rolling her eyes - she's insufferable. I'm sure Palin is getting briefed on foreign affairs and other subjects and she'll hold her own when she's good and ready.

I was not thrilled with McCain and fell asleep. He sounded to liberal as usual to me but he's better than the other choice.

They cancelled school today and it's calm w/ no rain yet here on the Southeast Coast.

Mel

**too liberal.

Glenn Beck is going over the details of Troopergate. The guy in question tazered his stepson, drank in his squad car and threated to kill Palin's father. Nice guy but the Union protected him.

Ree

I wish they would have Senator Jim Webb back on. I would really like to hear his opinion of Sarah Palin. Maybe Casey of Pennsylvania too. that is a battle ground state. Pennsylvania has an interesting make up of folks Sarah is going to appeal to many Pennsylvanians.


I bought Jamey Johnson's that lonesome song CD...it is great.

His myspace page has a player but the songs are messed up they are, bleeding from something else a woman singing, anyway I bought the CD and I am enjoying listening.

Ree

What is wrong with this Picture?

bella

Mel, I read that she was the one who requested the investigation into the trooper thing.

She has her enemies in Alaska because some wanted the "bridge to nowhere."

I saw where the Wooten trooper guy had tazed his ten-year-old stepson. He told Palin's father that he would eat a fcking bullet. So he is probably should not be a trooper, but I believe he still has his job.

The account I read said that Wooten was diciplined and suspended for ten days because of his conduct.

Why is he still employed? Am I seeing this wrong, but if she wanted him fired then why is he still there? Sounds like he should have been fired to me.

bella

US magazine, the one with the Babies, Lies, and Scandals cover is condeucting an online poll:

They ask, "After watching her speech, do you think Sarah Palin would make a good vice president?"

"Yes" currently has 135,061 votes, or 83.16 percent. "No" has 27,351 votes, or 16.84 percent.

Us Magazine Hit Hard by Canceling Subscribers After Palin Attack

Nothing like voting with your pocketbook!

Courtney Hazlett over at MSNBC's "The Scoop" is reporting that thousands of "Us Weekly" subscribers have not only called the magazine to cancel their subscriptions -- some reports say up to 10,000 cancellations have occurred -- but have also contacted advertisers and expressed their outrage that they are advertising with the celebrity news magazine that would so blatantly try to destroy Governor Palin.

Hazlett is hearing that the editorial board of "Us Weekly" had thought they pegged it right that media pressure and attacks would see Palin pulled from the McCain ticket even before her debut speech. Because the media had so quickly swarmed to destroy her, they thought she was toast before she even had the chance to accept the nomination.

“When Us went to print Monday night, it looked like the ticket was falling apart," says one magazine editor. “They went to print thinking Palin was dead in the water, and their mistake was thinking everyone who reads Us is a Democrat, when they’re not. Readers are loyal, but the base of a political party is more loyal. They don’t need to read the magazine when there’s so much press around it to know to be upset.”

Reports vary that from 3,000 to 10,000 subscribers have canceled their subscriptions to the gossip mag scaring the pants off of the magazine industry. In a time when sales and advertising are both down, the magazine industry does not need this sort of imbroglio, for sure. Hazlett also reports that these many thousands of cancellations came before the attacks on Palin in "Us Weekly" were even printed and distributed.

Five thousand might not seem like a large number at first glance, but it’s significant in the context of Us’ printing schedule. The magazine goes to press Monday night, which means subscribers don’t receive their issues until Friday or Saturday. In other words, the cancellations are coming from subscribers who, in many cases, haven’t even gotten their hands on the actual issue.

This speaks to the arrogance of the left leaning media establishment. They were so darn sure that they could successfully destroy Sarah Palin that they counted their chickens before they were hatched. They assumed that by the time they printed and shipped their magazine, they would have succeeded in forcing McCain to boot her from the ticket.

They didn't know how tough Sarah Palin really was, nor how outraged their readership would be.

Lee, I saw where someone said on Tuesday that Palin would be out by Friday.

I didn't think McCain was the kind of guy who would kick her to the curb. And obviously she is a lot stronger than a lot thought.

They were saying before the speech (media) that "anybody can give a good speech with a teleprompter....". And the teleprompter was not working and she did great anyway. That proves she can think on her feet. I believe she a lot of inner strength. She's going to need it.

bella

*I believe she has a lot of inner strength.

Mel

I just heard Rush talking about how half of Oprah's staff want Palin on but she doesn't want her! Oprah's true biased colors have come out in full view. I would have expected she'd love Palin to come on. She screwed Hillary too. The bloom is off that rose.

Mel

Where's Ginger?? It's being reported that McCain/Palin's rallies are attracting Obama numbers today! ha ha. There is something about her that inspires and I find her completely trust-worthy. Storm Hanna is due to hit today so I stocked up on magazines and she's on the cover of People. There's a picture of her at her desk with the baby inside. I haven't read the story yet but won't be suprised if it's unflattering....they'll be hearing from angry people if it is!

Mel

Bella, I typed in Us Weekly and got this, check it out:

http://www.usweekly.com/

Lee

I think she has a lot of inner strength also Bella, you have to with 5 kids, a demanding job etc. Did you see that baby?? How adorable is he?? I couldn't help but just fall in love with him!

Lee

Mel - That Michele looks down-right scary!!

sutoo

Maya Angelo once said the "most" discriminated group in society are women over 40, and comes substantially from their
own gender! What you cannot say about another race, you can say about a woman and
get a pass..this is going to be interesting.

bella

Mel, I think Ginger is in Arkansas. That is an interesting choice of articles there on US weekly. I would say the tide has turned.

Lee, very adorable baby, yes.

I just can't get over the vicious attacks from those who have said they are for women, both from men and women. Boy, this has certainly unmasked a new level of hatred from the haters, hasn't it? Just a bunch of frauds and users.

Mel

Oprah backlash on top at Drudge - not good publicity for the Queen of Nice! I've lost all respect for her - what a phony just like you know who, bunch of hypocrites all of them. She was awful to Imus too.

http://www.drudgereport.com/

bella

I've noticed it's always the same people. You can take the Imus list of weasels and you will find most all of the same people who are now bashing Palin. I don't know where Jesse Jackson stands. He has stomach pains. lol.

bella

Yeah, Oprah says she doesn't want her show to become a showcase for politicians. But I guess she doesn't count that big endorsement of Obama she did. She is now saying she will be glad to have Palin on after the election.

Mel

So women rock pioneers, the group Heart, want Sarah Palin to stop playing their song Barracuda at events! Wow - what is the matter with these libs? What could she stand for that they object to??? She should make all women proud.

She should use Pat Benatar's "Hit me with your Best Shot." I'm losing respect for so many in the entertainment industry who don't understand their audiences.

Mel

Oprah is so full of doodie - we all want to know more about her NOW! She and her family on Oprah would be great - I'd actually watch her. She has so many life issues people/women would like to hear.

Obama is sucking up to Hillary now because he know he needs her.

bella

Kilpatrick, Mayor of Detroit (ex) is a friend and colleague of Obama's -- in his own words.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SODIFZXIPA&eurl=http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0908/13181.html

bella

Mel, did you hear Rush say that he wouldn't be surprised if there might be a plan in play, a desperate plan, to get Hillary on the ticket? That would be like trying to make-up with a bunch of flowers, wouldn't it, after a jilt? I'd throw those roses in the trash so fast it would make your head swim. Men think they can just bulldoze women over. Of course, nothing would surprise me though.

bella

Fox just said that McCain got more viewers than Obama. Could that be?

Mel

Yeah, I heard that too, throw Biden under the bus. I just went to oprah.com and sent an email. I'm getting really angry that these celebrities look down on anyone who isn't worshipping The Messiah. Why can't they be fair - we're all Americans. It's the the ladies from Heart being so petty. Their song is getting played and isn't that why you write them? Oprah could do a show about working moms, special needs kids, teen pregnancy - Palin has so many female issues she could cover w/out talking politics but no, she's for Barack and that is all that matters.

Greta has a poll asking is Oprah being honest re her decision not to have on Sarah:

http://gretawire.foxnews.com/

Mel

I love it, they're going after Oprah everywhere!

nobo08

Oprah has always been a big phony fraud. I could never understand the adulation from her predominantly white audience. Smarten up women lets get real. She's a HUGH LIBERAL with one agenda and we have made her a multi-millionaire!! Disgraceful!!

Thanks Mel, they should go after her. I'm going to email her now.

Mel

I just finished the People article re Palin and it's a tear-jerker. They mention troopergate but fail to mention anything about the guy but otherwise, it was sweet. She's breast-feeding, changes diapers before appearances and talks about how she was scared she wouldn't love the baby but the minute he was born, she fell in love and he's meant to be here. Her husband took a leave to take care of the baby when he was born. There goes the lib's argument the baby is being neglected.

The Wilson's sister's father, was a military officer, Vietnam era and Anne Wilson had a draft dodging boyfriend, who ran off to Canada, to escape serving. Now the Wilson sisters are soo Petty, they can't let a P.O.W. from the same War, use an old piddly song of theirs. The Democrats have become the party of CONFORMIST they are in lock step. Stay Classy Anne and Nancy.

Ree

ANN AND NANCY WILSON
MUSICIANS

In an interview on the TV Program "Live with Regis and Kathy Lee", Ann and Nancy Wilson stated that they were Marine Corps Brats. In a previous interview they stated that they had lived in Panama during their father's tour of duty there.

In 1976, the Rock stars debuted their first Heart Album. Later they formed an additional group, the Lovemongers. Nancy composed the award-winning score for "Jerry McGuire."

Right, John McCain was born in Panama, while his father was serving our Country. The Wilson Sisters what a couple of Sad Sacks.

Mel

Ree, these people can't see beyond their adoration of Obama and bias or they'd understand their song is being heard and appreciated by millions of new fans. How could anyone be offended by Sarah Palin? Are they going to have a liberal and conservative section in the CD store soon - only libs are able to purchase Springsteen and the rest? It's hard to believe Bruce wrote Born in the USA.

Ree

The industry sure took notice of Heart in 1970s and ’80s. After forming in Seattle in the early 1970s, the band moved to Vancouver, where Wilson was dating a Vietnam War draft dodger (the brother of a band member). Their 1976 debut album Dreamboat Annie sold 30,000 copies in Canada, leading to a record deal in the United States. Thanks to the success of singles Crazy on You and Magic Man, the album went on to sell more than a million copies. The albums Little Queen (featuring the single Barracuda) and Dog and Butterfly followed before the hits dried up and the band underwent a series of personnel changes that altered their sound from a hard-rocking unit to a slicker mid-’80s product, which ironically led to their most successful period.

You can google this information, it isn't a secret. So the Wilson Sisters - Petty has beens or candidates for hormone replacement patch? Your call. They don't have to be worried about being mistaken for a Class Act.

McCain/Palin08

THIS WILL UPLIFT USA.....YES!!!

Some first hand info on Sarah Palen.

"This e-mail is from a friend of mine in AZ. Her savvy friend Judy from FL has a friend in AK who wrote Judy this e-mail. We figure McCain has won the election by choosing her! Trish

This is what we just received from our very savy friend, Judy, who lives in Florida. She has a friend, Deb, who lives in Alaska and she asked what Deb's take was on Sarah Palin. We were so worried before we saw her speech today...and so impressed afterwards...very strong and confident. This makes us feel confident McCain made the right decision. I hope it will ease your minds, too. Diane

WOW...........what's your take on this? Do you like her as your Governor? Hugs, Judy

Judy, Sarah Palin is the US's answer to Margaret Thatcher! Anyone who thinks she cannot handle the job or deal briskly and efficiently with ANY issue, including foreign governments … well, they haven't met our Sarah.
As an Alaskan resident as well as a resident of Wasilla, AK, where Sarah Palin was at one time Mayor … I can speak with confidence. Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska is exactly what she portrayed during her introduction this morning and exactly what our US Government needs. She is ethical to a fault (if there is such a thing), a refreshing change to the status-quo and as smart and determined a PERSON (gender really isn't an issue here as far as I'm concerned) as anyone could ask for at the head of government.

Sarah is no naïve 'small town mayor' – she just *started out* there. Btw, as Mayor of Wasilla, she brought this 'small town' through a lot of GOOD changes and left it at the end of her term having grown to the 4th largest CITY in Alaska E2 a lot of growth and a stronger economic base than ever before.

She has EXECUTIVE experience *running a government* (something NONE of the other candidates can actually boast, even John McCain ) as Governor of Alaska and got there by defeating the *incumbent* Republican Governor, who was definitely part of the 'old school' and who WAS very much in the pocket of the big oil companies. We in Alaska wanted change – and we got it in the person of Sarah Palin!

Sarah Palin is everything she looks to be and more. Her approval rating as Governor of Alaska has been as high as 95% and is currently leveled out consistently in the upper 80 percentile throughout the state (and in both parties) - the HIGHEST approval rating of ANY sitting Governor.

Sarah has been turning around corruption in the Legislature of Alaska - turning things on their ear for that matter; cutting spending in spite of the increased income the state is currently receiving due to the high oil prices - she has insisted on putting a huge amount of the 'windfall' into savings for the future rather than spending, spending, spending - and has insisted from the get-go on what she refers to as 'honest, ethical and transparent governing' - no more closed door meetings and dealings - the big oil companies thought she would be a pushover and have learned better to their chagrin.

She understands the 'real people' and the economic issues we all face (Alaskans along with the rest of the country) - she was one of 'us' not long ago. Rather than passing useless 'laws' or throwing money at pet projects, she (most recently) temporarily suspended the state gas tax (on gasoline at the pumps, fuel oil and natural gas for homes, etc.) and has ordered checks issued to ALL residents of Alaska this fall in an attempt to assist with the burden of high fuel costs for the upcoming winter. I could go on and on, but that's enough for now . She isn't doing these things to be popular – she is doing it because her constituents are HURTING financially and she can help.

She became Governor of Alaska by defeating the Incumbent Republican Governor and doing it *without* the money or the support of the Republican Party, which was amazing in itself - and she won by a landslide. The 'powers that be' at that time totally underestimated Sarah and learned better the hard way. She has done exactly what she claimed she was going to do and is just as popular today as the day she was elected - perhaps more so since even the Democrats up here seem to like her - she works well with both sides in the Legislature here.

Sarah 'belongs' to us (Alaskans) ... and although we are going to be terribly sorry to see her leave before she finishes the job she started here (two years ago) straightening out OUR State ... we understand she is needed for a bigger purpose and hopefully her Lt. Governor will be able to fill her shoes here and continue the job.

As for worrying about what would happen if McCain were to die or step down or whatever ... Theta, up here in AK we've only been wondering how long we would be able to KEEP Sarah in Alaska and have seen her as our first woman President of the USA from the start. It's always been a matter of whether she would wait until the end of her TWO terms as Governor (no doubt at ALL that she would be re-elected if she ran for a second term at the end of her current term) ... or end up in Washington sooner. She could do the job TODAY."

Personally, I feel a lot better about McCain now that I know he has someone as savvy, as strong, as ethical and as steady as Sarah at his back. She will be an excellent Vice President ... and my guess is will be our US Republican Presidential candidate in four years - AND by then the country will KNOW her – will love and respect her as we do here - and she'll win by as much of a landslide as she did here in Alaska. I only wonder if McCain has a clue what he is unleashing on the US of A . She is going to be a fresh wind, but also a strong wind.
Is that enough of an endorsement? If not, I'll add this ... Jerry and I have for many years felt the best 'vote' was to vote for the lesser of two 'evils' and hope they didn't do too much damage. Two years ago during our State Governor's race was the first time EVER that we actually asked for not just a little sign to put in our yard showing our support of our candidate (something we've never felt the desire to do at all before) - we asked for a full 4' x 8' 'SARAH PALIN FOR GOVERNOR!' sign and were proud to have it. She hasn't let us or Alaska down. She will do the same for the USA if given the opportunity.

Feel free to pass this on to anyone who may be interested (and spam those who aren't!).
