Palin Code Name: 'Denali'

Updated 7:17 p.m.
By Anne E. Kornblut
GREAT FALLS, Mont. -- The Secret Service has selected a fitting enough code name for Gov. Sarah Palin: "Denali," same as the Alaska national park and preserve famed for its mountain peaks and wildlife.

Perhaps even more perfect is their code name for former oil slope worker Todd Palin -- "Driller." McCain and Palin have made drilling for oil a central part of their platform, so much so that "Drill, baby, drill!" is now a regular McCain-Palin rally chant.

The names aren't exactly state secrets; although the Secret Service doesn't advertise them, the names are generally symbolic, with the service relying on more sophisticated methods to safeguard protectees. McCain is "Phoenix" and his wife Cindy is "Parasol." Sen. Barack Obama is codenamed "Renegade," while his wife, Michelle -- in keeping with the theme of selecting code names for spouses that begin with the same letter -- is "Renaissance.''

Sen. Joe Biden's handle remains unknown, though he has joked he's so boring it could just be plain old "Joe."

Denali is word that comes up with some frequency in the commercial world.

It's the name of a luxury model of GMC SUVs, the great Mastodon from "Gumby" and a computer project that "enables hosts to safety execute untrusted applications," particularly in "virtual machines," according to The University of Washington.

Politicians have been pushing "change" rhetoric down our throats for decades.
While McCain may have voted with republican policies 90% of the time; Obama voted with the Dems 98% of the time. The other 2% were "present" votes.

Obama brings nothing to the table other than wealth redistribution and other overtly socialist policies.

No one said the code names are secret; The Secret Service's intent is to simply identify people that they protect without using their real name in the event radios are monitored; And, it's simple short hand instead of saying The First Lady is doing whatever, or The Vice President is doing whatever. It's a matter of convenience, not security.

The code name is at least partly to have something clear and unmistakable to say on the radio, kind of like air traffic controllers say 'niner' for nine, 'Speedbird' for British Airways, 'Allegheny' for US Airways. There's no security value in keeping it secret.

given Troopergate, maybe they meant 'Denial' instead of 'Denali'

1 Obama is not nor has been a Muslim, not that there is anything wrong with being one.
2In the last year and a half or so he has had everything that he has said scrutinized to the point of silliness.
3 He for the most part hasn't gone postal as McCain surely will once the "527's" get going

and last but not least, just say you won't vote for him, because he is black, cut the crap.

If you want at least 4 more years of the same crap, don't vote for him, vote for McCain/Palin.How many more wars do we need? How many more years of gridlock do we need in Washington, just cause you are a bigoted racist fool?

Words Obama Will Regret
By Ken Blackwell

On Monday, Senator Obama uttered one sentence that could haunt him until Election Day. He said of Senator McCain and Governor Palin telling voters they would bring change, "they must think you're stupid." Given his stances on the surge, social issues, and his past, Mr. Obama will regret those words.

Let's start with social issues like Second Amendment freedoms. Mr. Obama denies that he's ever supported banning handguns, right after the landmark Heller case where the Supreme Court struck down Washington D.C.'s handgun ban.

When a 1996 questionnaire surfaced that had asked if Mr. Obama supported banning all handguns, his one-word written answer was "yes." He said an unnamed staffer must have filled it out without his knowledge. Then another copy surfaced -- this one with his handwriting on it. He says he must not have read that particular question. Sure.

On the hot-button issue of abortion, last month saw a growing concern over Mr. Obama's opposition to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which states if an abortion is botched and a live birth results, the baby is entitled to medical care. The federal version of this law unanimously passed the U.S. Senate.

However, when a version of this bill came to the Illinois Senate, Mr. Obama opposed it. When confronted last month with the fact that the federal version of this bill had been supported by the likes of Ted Kennedy and Barbara Boxer, Mr. Obama said the he would have supported the federal version. Those suggesting otherwise were lying, he said. Then it was revealed that a second bill was introduced in the Illinois Senate, and this one was identical to the federal version. Mr. Obama opposed that bill as well. He has yet to come up with an explanation on that one.

DAVID FRUM: The Democrats’ Credibility Gap
Bob Shrum tells us that John McCain and Sarah Palin are falling short in their populism. Nobody has deployed the rhetoric of populism more ferociously and more often than Bob Shrum, so his assessment carries weight.

Yet populism carries risks too—and the Democrats are now encountering them.

Democratic-leaning pollster Stan Greenberg has just published a fascinating memo detailing one of the most dangerous of those risks:

Democratic populism is destroying Democratic credibility on national security.

Let's go to the numbers.

Republicans have owned the national security issue since the late 1960s. After 9/11, the Republican advantage on poll questions spread to an astounding 30 points.

But since 2005, the Republican advantage has dwindled. By the fall of 2007, the two parties had reached near parity on the issue, only 3 points apart—the best Democratic result since Barry Goldwater led the Republican party!

That parity did not last. Over the past year, Republican standing on the issue has revived while Democratic credibility has tumbled. In Greenberg's latest polling, the Republicans now hold a 14-point lead, 49-35, a return to the kind of advantage they held in the 1980s.

What's going on?

Greenberg advances three reasons, but here is the most important and provocative:

When asked to choose why they think Democrats are weak on security, the number one reason—picked by 33% of all respondents—is that Democrats" change positions depending on public opinion."

“Moreover, when we ask respondents to compare the two parties, likely voters choose Democrats over Republicans as the party "too focused on public opinion" by a 27-point margin. Even Democratic base voters agree: liberal Democrats point to their own party as the one "too focused on public opinion" by an 18-point margin, and moderate/ conservative Democrats say this by 25 points.

In 2001-2002, Democrats chased public opinion in a hawkish direction. In 2004-2007, they chased public opinion in a dovish direction. In 2006, when the war seemed hopeless, that reversal paid off for Democrats. But as conditions have improved in Iraq, Republicans have been vindicated—and Democrats look weak and opportunistic.

Now when Bob Shrum talks of "populism," he has something very specific and highly ideological in mind. But most Americans—and most working politicians—use the word "populism" in a more general sense. They use it to mean, "doing what is popular."

You might think that doing what is popular is always good politics. That would seem true almost by definition!

And in the very short term, it has been true for Democrats.

But there is a longer term too. Voters remember. They compare results. They recall who stayed firm in the moment of decision and who flinched. And if the person who stood firm is also proven right—voters reward it.

Don't misunderstand. There are prizes for the vacillating and the time-serving. John Kerry is still senator from Massachusetts after all. But there is a price to be paid too for too obvious vote-catching—and on national security, the Democrats have already begun to pay it. Just how high that price will go, we must wait until November to know.

McCain the Antichrist?
by Robert Dreyfuss
Biblical scholars in Colorado Springs have uncovered startling evidence that Senator John McCain may be the Antichrist. Their conclusions, while highly controversial, may have a dramatic impact on the 2008 elections, since many Bible-believing Christians have already expressed doubts about McCain's fealty to Christianity.

The analysis was conducted by the respected True Bible Society, and it will be published next month in the End Times Journal.

The analysis was especially ironic, given that it came out just one day after McCain was accused of subtly hinting that Barack Obama could be the Antichrist. McCain ran a commercial depicting Obama as "The One," giving rise to charges that he was sending a subliminal messages to anti-Obama Christians.

"What started us looking at this issue is the fact that Senator McCain has declared his intention to maintain US forces in Iraq for a hundred years," said David Jenkins, a leading Biblical scholar. "That means that McCain wants to control Babylon for at least a century." According to many scholars of the Book of Revelation, the Antichrist will try to rebuild the ancient city of Babylon in order to use it as a springboard for an international effort at world domination. Ultimately, the Antichrist will marshal forces from Babylon to spark a showdown with Christian and Jewish-led forces in the battle of Armageddon.

"We believe that the End Times is near, based on the pattern of wars, earthquakes. and other strange phenomena we've been witnessing since the start of the New Millennium," said Jenkins. "Given that it may be imminent, the person who controls Babylon must be the Antichrist." Until 2003, many Christians believed that Saddam Hussein might be the Antichrist, since he started excavations to restore Babylon in the mid 1970s. But Hussein's death meant that the Antichrist is someone else. Since Obama wants to get out of Iraq, he can't be the Antichrist either, concluded Jenkins.

Jenkins said his teams suspicions were further heightened when genealogical research showed that McCain's great-grandfather was actually not John McCain, but John Mihai. Mihai is an ancient Romanian name, and according to Bible-believing Christians, the Antichrist is likely to be a Romanian. "What clinched it for us was that the name Mihai means 'who is like the Lord,'" said Jenkins. "As far as we're concerned, that was enough. It means that McCain might easily pretend to be the Redeemer."

McCain's geniality and folksiness are consistent with his being the Antichrist, Jenkins said. "Many people think that the Antichrist will be a evil-seeming leader, but in fact the Bible tells us that he will be charming."

So far the McCain campaign has refused to comment on Jenkins' study.

um, why is this news?

Posted by: CK | September 11, 2008 3:16 AM | Report abuse

So much politics are agenda driven-- I look at it from a big picture stance. I urge the American citizens to do so. Sure we all believe in certain values and other things, but that is also why we have Congress in place. In voting the President, we need to look at benefit vs. risk. Sure, McCain may be conservative with certain views, and Palin might be a soccer mom. However, their experience with Government, policy and reform is way more than what Obama and his running mate can provide. With McCain and Palin, there are disagreements-- which brings to the table more reason to debate and fix the system. While Obama and his running mate have the same personality and will agree to the same approach on things with limited experience.

Prior to Palin, I had my doubts about McCain... his choice was truely a smart one. In some cases, the Democrats have been functioning like Republicans. During the Clinton administration, they had budgets for everything-- WHAT A CONCEPT!?! And Bush has been demonstrating a Democrat approach, spending without a ceiling. I believe that McCain can do that-- he at least has a plan forward on how to fix the budget. Analysts already proved that Obama's approach is flawed and may only be a short term fix. This not only affects the internal economy, but also foreign policy, and a chance to clear the debt that the U.S. has.

Her nickname is an insult to all those who respect the wild, especially to those who have climbed or aspire to climb Denali.

I'm a Lincoln, Roosevelt (Theodore), Eisenhower, and Old McCain Republican, which is why I'm a member of the Democratic Party. McCain was the shining hope of the Republican party--I worked for him in California for his 2000 campaign. What a shame that he has jettisoned true old school Republican values and to top it all off, he's picked some weird Creationist, tongue-talking (Assembly of God), extremist with a horribly shrill voice to be his running mate.

I was truly undecided, and weighing all the issues still because I am a former Marine and a strong supporter of our military in general, but there is now way in hell that I want Sarah Palin any where near the Presidency. Before he picked her, I honestly told my friends and family that I really would be happy with either man winning in this election. They are both good men at heart and I do trust both of them to lead us. I was waiting to see who they picked as VP, and I cannot get over what a bad pick she is for the country.

What a disappointment that McCain's final last act of Rovian tactics led him to pick Palin.

Never thought there could be any one more ignorant of the world in general or less intellectually curious than George W Bush, but McCain managed to find just that.
