Woiyo - you replied without addressing this or sozobe's comment on female life averages.

I think that it's ridiculous that Clinton would want Obama to lose at this point. She may want to be president, but not so badly to ruin Obama's race so she could have her chance 4 years earlier. Absurd.

Yeah.

I'm hoping Paul's convention will be covered with a fraction of the avidity with which PUMAs were covered at the DNC...

C-SPAN did a good job yesterday. They've been doing a great job in general with all things related to the campaign. Their in nobody's pocket and they owe no loyalty to any party.

EDIT: Also it got a some coverage by Larry King when he interviewed Jesse Ventura.

We all know about the incompetent people Bush appointed to some very important departments including Browne, Gonzalez, et al, and we now have McCain starting his with Palin.

If the republicans are happy with Palin's choice, it just shows how out of touch with reality they now live in a country that's in recession, and reminders that Bush failed to complete his promise of "the biggest reconstruction project we have ever seen" in New Orleans after Katrina.

What's to admire? Their brains ceased to work long ago.

I just got done chatting with my friend who was in attendance. He said that he had a good time and that Paul's convention event was more like a protest. He said that he got to meet and speak with Ron Paul, and that it was more about keeping the dialogue going on the issues he represented rather than him winning an election he's not even trying to get on a ballot for.

@Diest TKO,
Who are the Paul people going to vote for, though? Not that they'll all vote for the same person, but did you get any impressions?

Barr, for example?

I think the message was more to vote to stay home. I didn't get the impression that he was going to try and sway them to some sort of repercussionary vote for the democrats that they may or may not be comfortable with.

My friend does however plan to vote for Obama in MN. He has planned to do so since Paul left the race. He attended, because he is still fascinated by the man. He's more of a moderate democrat anyways. Had Paul been on the ticket, he would have made his vote for him over Obama.

I assume you think using phases like "liberaltard" is a educated quip then? Grow up.

Okay, so the Republicans are considering hauling out the kid who knocked Palin's daughter up onto stage tonight, to be with the family.

I predict right now that this will not go over well. It's cruel. Everyone knows why he's there, and it isn't b/c he wants to be; it's because the GOP is desperately spinning Palin's daughters shame as some sort of positive, as if it's somehow a good thing that her 17-year old is pregnant, that it's a good thing that the parents are going to force these two kids to marry. It's f*cking shameful and disgusting, that they are using these kids this way.

On the other hand, if we lose, we have something to entertain us for the next 4 years.

I jest. I jest.

The way the democrats and the liberal press are attacking Palin
and her pregnant daughter is f*cking shameful and disgusting.

@H2O MAN,
Since the daughter is not married, I would have expected the democrats to try and recruit her for their Social Welfare interests. Maybe Obama can send her some food stamps.

What hypocrites they are!

@H2O MAN,
What liberal press Kevin? It's a story. It's going to get covered. I guess you like to call them liberal just cause it outlines the problems in what she says and how she is.

It's a big hole in the Palin boat, and she'll sink by it since she's preached abstinence only programs. It will (1) show how poor this concept is and (2) in spite of the evidence below her nose, she'll illustrate the inability to admit the idea's flaws.

I don't care about her daughter, but many people do care about theirs and don't want some religious zealot putting up roadblocks to a proper sexual health education.

The left is angry with themselves for not doing a better job of choosing the right people for
the job and they are lashing out with petty attacks that will only sink the democratic party.

No. I'm serious. Put up or shut up. Defend your statement. Don't give me a list. Show me how the press is liberal. Show me how. Show me how it does not come to the aide of republicans. Prove it.

Grow up.
