The McCain/Palin ticket is extreme right wing - neocon and theocon. Whether you think the Independents in the US are center-right or center-left these guys are far far to the right. McCain is no maverick and Palin is no moderate.

Who told Cindy she needed to wear a raincoat? GEEZ. Three years too late.

Could you imagine what the "liberal" media would be saying if Obama had a pregnant 17 year old daughter? Get a grip? Learn how to spell LIBERAL, not libral, idiot.

How could anyone say that Palin and her daughter are not good role models. They are REAL people. Hillary and Chelsea have more behind the scene scandals it is disgusting. They are a show! Palin and her daughter show real life and how family sticks together. They take responsibility for their actions and chose to get married and raise a family. Pro Life, Pro Choice and the democrats would expect her to have an abortion or have the baby and go on welfare and food stamps. Get a grip.

The media will do just about anything to hurt a Republican. Please leave Sarah Palin alone! She is a fine women and can bring a breath of fresh air to the "hipe" that we have to listen to everyday from the media. Obama is not a savior. He is a man who will give our county away if we allow him to do so. He is a librals libral. Say No to Obama.

Palin reminds us of how human we all are and that my friends will win this race. No the same old bush-cheney, obama-biden politics! Go McCain-Palin!

Mccain made a huge mistake chosing Palin. Palin or her daughter are not good role models for women like Hillary and Chelsea are. Mccain made his first presidential decision and it is a disaster. The more I learn about Palin the more I believe Mccain should never be president.
