Campaigning against us is a perilous endeavor: We are everywhere, and we control everything.

The RNC is electing a war hero. That has and is focusing on this part of his life. The main stream media is supporting this. You don't think that anyone cares. Not even the $300,000 outfit his wife ware gets more that 30 minutes play. Or him not playing taxes on a home.

But McCain has and is putting the country at risk.

He has done worse. -- I'm glad that some reports think that the he is such a great joe. He is such a nice guy.. he went thru so much. This is a guy that had cancer (HAS) cancer. In 2000 it took a 5 hour operation to save his life. He is monitored now and everyone says that is all that is needed. HELLO, the cancer could get really bad any time. Sooo, this great hero is putting the country at risk if (WHEN) the cancer starts getting worse. But he is so much a hero and we do not need to talk about any of his core values that are dishonest to the country.

This is critical information that need to be put on the front page of every news paper. It is material to deciding that he should be elected. Kids call this behavior some form of fear. Cause, he is such a nice guy. Well, a nice guy would not do this.

Thanks, Dana. Very funny. Seeing David Broder drop the f-bomb was worth the price of admission.

Still want to know:

How much does Governor Plain's family receive in Alaskan oil royalties?

Are there texts of her speeches to the Alaskan Independence Party?

Does she support Alaskan independence?

Thanks for the laughs, Dana. Here is a another issue for you to cover, if you are so inclined: are McCain/Palin aware that are two Georgias - one a US state and the other a far away country?

With McCain/Palin as President/Vice-President, I worry that we in Atlanta will wake up some day to find the Alaska National Guard valiantly fighting to save us from the Russians.

Scary stuff from a foreign policy decision making point of view.

I was amazed when John picked a complete unknown, Sarah Who?, from Alberta.

Apparently, she claims to come from a Canadian Province called Alaska.

I understand that they speak French in Alaska and, therfore, we should trust Sarah? and recognise her as the best possible VP ever.

If she is not elected will she still seek to make Alaska secede from Canada?

If global warming continues and all of the ice melts will Alaska disappear?

Anyone who eats moose burgers, comes from Wasilla and likes hockey obviously has the right credentials to be VP and thereafter President of Alberta.

Yes Dana, Keep up the good work! You do in fact control everything. Just keep up your biased, hate filled rhetoric against the Republicans. You have complete control, just keep telling yourself how imnportant you are.

If John McCain dies in office just be thankful that Sarah Palin will be there to care for the US of A.

She became a beauty queen because she believes in 'World Peace' or as she mistakenly put it because of temporary deafness: 'Wild Peas'.

As you know, Sarah likes her food. That is why she eats moose burgers. She also like money that is why she put her hand in the till.

You can trust Sarah with the affairs of state because she says: 'Trust Me.' That means she is trustworthy or she would not have said that (would you Sarah?).

Sarah also believes in avoiding the Press and being questioned by them because they will not curtsy in her presence. What could be fairer than that?

Anyway, the Press have a rude habit of asking questions that politicians cannot answer.

There is a way around this. She can give them the questions and then answer them. I am sure that the GOP's very own Foxtel will oblige.

Here are some tough questions:
Q: Sarah, do you like moose burgers with or without ketchup?
A: Yes I do.

Q: Do you cook the meat first or just take bites out of the dieing moose?
A: London is our ally. Europe is next to London. Soon, I will visit Washington for the first time. Seattle will make a great First City.

Q: Is Alaska part of Canada or a free state? (Be warned. This is a tricky question. It may make her cry.)
A: I have been a member of the NRA ever since I wanted to kill someone.

Q: Are you becoming the next VP so that you can get government housing and free cable TV?
A: We also get a jet and a stretch limo and free food.

Q: Who are our best allies?
A: Sometimes I like ketchup without the moose because it looks like blood but does not taste as good.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the next (but one) President of the USA. Sarah hopes to become President shortly after John turns 73 and moves into a rest home where his other firends who have dementia will keep him company.

One must forgive Sarah if she mixes up the Qs and As but one way and another she will give the right answers even if they do not match up with the questions.

This is one reason why she should inherit the presidency. Todd could be her VP.

she says "some consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone..."(being Elite)
but then, she agrees probably, as found at Stanford U., its OK (6% voters) if youre unqualified because youre black.
