The Fix Twitters

ST. PAUL -- The penultimate night of the Republican National Convention features former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani -- all one-time rivals of John McCain for the Republican nomination as well as Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the newly minted vice presidential nominee.

And, while the Fix is worn down from the last 12 days of conventions, we are not worn out -- yet. That speaking lineup is too good to be missed so starting with Romney's speech tonight we will be Twittering the proceedings.

You can either follow our tweets here on The Fix or sign up for our Twitter feed.

Stay tuned for 140-character chunks of wit and wisdom -- starting around 9 pm eastern tonight.

A son and a brother of Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) are accused in two lawsuits of defrauding a former business partner and an investor of millions of dollars in a hedge fund deal that went sour, court records show.

Hunter Biden was made president with an annual salary of $1.2 million, despite his inexperience in the hedge fund industry, the lawsuit said.

I was for Barrack until he picked Biden.

Biden voted for the war in Iraq.

I thought Barrack was against the war? how could he do this????

And why does Obama keep saying he'll take the troops out of Iraq and put them IN AFGHANISTAN??? Oh gosh an even BIGGER war!

Murphy: Um, you know, because, I come out of the blue swing state governor world. Engler, Whitman, Tommy Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, I mean, and these guys, this is all like how you win a Texas Race race, just run it up, and it's not gonna work.

Noonan: It's Over.

Murphy: Still, McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech and do himself some good.

Todd: Don't you think this Palin pick is insulting to Kay Baily Hutchinson

Noonan: Saw kay this morning

Todd: She's(?) never looked comfortable up there..

Murphy: all bummed out.

Todd: I mean, is she really the most qualified woman they could turn to?

Noonan: The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullshXX about narratives amd youthfulness and the picture

Todd: Yeah, but what's the narrative

Murphy: I totally agree.

Noonan: Every time Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and it's not what they're good at, they blow it.

Murphy: You know what's the worst thing about it, the greatest of McCain is no cynicism, and..

Murphy: This is cynical.

After eight years of the worst mismanagement in the history of American politics the Republican party is not even able to ask its own troops at its own convention to vote Republican.

Think about that.

Having put forth a presidential candidate a large section of its base has rejected it responds by selecting as a vice presidential candidate a woman who would, if she were a Democrat, be reviled as a "feminazi" for having sacrificed her family and her parental responsibilities for her career while, even more bizarrely, possessing the anti-choice creds the presidential candidate lacks.

It isn't that the Republican party is bereft of ideas, it's that its core ideas - the continuation of an unending and bogus "war on terror" custom designed to funnel unimaginable amounts of money into its pockets; the continuation of a culture war the specifics of which demand that the word "hypocrisy" from here on be spelled in all caps; the continued take over of American media and popular culture; the continued destruction of American public education in order to propagate a steady flow of a growing slave labor class into a booming prison population and a warrior class into the military; and the continued destruction of labor unions whever they still function - aren't ideas they want to actually advertise.

The idea of voting for the person and not the party both works and doesn't work for me. It works in that, if I look at both candidates I am left with zero doubt as to Obama's status as the "better person," and it doesn't work because voting for Jesus Christ if Jesus Christ were the Republican would still place the control of Supreme Court appointments in the hands of the Republican party (driving, in effect, the last nails into the wrists of the Constitution).

It is a disgrace, wrapped up in a debacle, inside an Ionesco play.

In the back rooms the movers and shakers are frantically doing what unethical stock traders call "putting lipstick on the pig" but they must realize that their one hope is that Americans are still sufficiently racist to reject the idea of a black president. If not, that's the ballgame.

I am a Democrat and I voted for McGovern and every Democrat since. But now I'm voting for McCain-Palin because:

(a) Democrats hate families...it is OK to go after Obama's family because Michelle hates America and is unpatriotic, but it is not OK to go after Palin's all-American family.

(b) Democrats are sexist, they are going after Palin because she's a girl, but Republicans would NEVER go after Clinton if she were the nomineee. Some things you just don't do.

(c) Palin will keep America safe, because she hunts wolves from helicopters. Plus she lives close to the Soviet Union, which is our greatest enemy.

Incidentally, did I mention that I am a Democrat and I voted for McGovern and every Democrat since. But now I'm voting for McCain-Palin.

I watched with refreshing delight the Republican Convention last night. As an Independent voter, and a Hillary Clinton supporter I usually vote Democratic. I am fascinated that all the writings to the U.S. Congress have paid off, and at least Republicans are reacting to the international outrageous and infamous leaders like Hugo Chavez sadly abusing Venezuela! However, there are issues that are typical Republican that I was annoyed to watch like the poster DRILL that kept on showing up during the Palin’s speech. Does that mean that Republicans may want to destroy Alaska by oil drilling? It would be fantastic if the following would happen:

- Republicans win the Presidential election 2008.
- Sarah Palin really looks after and defends women’s rights, including equal pay, and NO more glass ceilings. Hillary Clinton gets a fantastic job as is able to implement her ideas.
- Animals are protected, including no more Sarah Palin and others to go hunting!
- Infamous foreign nation leaders are replaced, and charged and processed according to their abuses against Human Rights.
- New environmental protecting energy sources to be implemented, and no more oil drilling.

Of course, there are other issues to discuss. The good news is that rumors report that infamous Chavez flew back to Venezuela today from South Africa mad as hell, Hummm!

2. Her humble and working class lifestyle says it all about her issues because she’s living them and if there is disagreement with them, you still know her intent is from the right place.

Starting with a nationally televised lie is not very smart. Her comment on refusing the money for the bridge to nowhere is going to hurt her.

The sudden and telling silence of the crowd after that statement was a real indictment.

For a brief moment the whole crowd actually thought about what she had just said and they couldn't hide the involuntary response associated to the brains recognition of something it knows to be false.

That brings up a question. Since that earmark was supposedly shot down, how is it that the money still made it's way to Alaska?

If she had to debate Obama, she'd be worse then toast. Can't anyone see what's happening, the GOPERS can't run on the economy, the WARS that GWB Jr. has screwed up so badly so what, they find a woman, any woman who agrees with the right wing zealots and decide hey we will make this about Patriotisim and abortion. I highly doubt many people out here in the real world are too worried about those issues when they can't find a job, can't sell their homes, fill up their tanks, buy groceries or go to the doctor. And quit telling everyone to lay off her daughter, if she didn't make her daughter the poster girl for teenage unprotected sex by dragging her and her boyfriend all over then she'd be off limits. Obviously this woman considers herself much more important then all the things going on in her home life. And don't start I am a Granny who has worked since age fifteen, raised three kids and was a single Mother for most of those years. But, if my daughter was Pregnant and I had a baby with special needs, I certainly wouldn't take some job in another State and leave home to travel around for a few months and let them take care of their own problems.

ENQURIER RESPONDS TO MCCAIN/PALIN
Wed Sep 03 2008 18:19:21 ET

"The National Enquirer's coverage of a vicious war

within Sarah Palin's extended family includes several

newsworthy revelations, including the resulting

incredible charge of an affair plus details of family

strife when the Governor's daughter revealed her pregnancy.

Following our John Edwards' exclusives, our political reporting has obviously proven to be more detail-oriented than the McCain campaign's vetting process.

Despite the McCain camp's attempts to control press coverage they find unfavorable, The Enquirer will continue to pursue news on both sides of the political spectrum."

Palin's built a pattern of punishing disloyal employees both as Mayor and Gov. I shutter to think of what she would do with Cheney's power and position.

She is against earmarks in speeches but for them in practice - as long as they are for Alaska.

She is hailed as going up against Big Oil but it was really an issue of levying a windfall profit tax so she could give more money back to the good folks of Alaska. It seems Mr. Obama has proposed the same thing for folks in ALL 50 states.

The list is amazingly long of this walking contradiction. But that fits well with Mr. McCain who has reversed himself on every position he had in 2000 in order to get the GOP nomination.
