Just heard the DNC and Obama camp are so threatened by GOP new VP Gov. Palin that they may target and physically hurt her supporters!!! Unbelievable.... Apparently that is why he is going on FOX's O'Reilly Show tomorrow night to counter McCain's nomination speech even though he flunks without teleprompters and in debates. As a sharp critic of DNC and Obama, should we worry about our family's safety too?

BTW, the true story behind her firing the state trooper, her ex-brother in law is, he was beating his wife and children with his police taser and threatened her Palin's father as well. So her ex-brother in law was beating up her sister, niece and nephews and her father. When this story goes out, Gov. Palin may become a national heroine...

I read this very disturbing post by a "Vince P - Chicago" posted September 3rd, 2008 at 2:58 am at www.alan.com. Nobody in mainstream media is asking the tough questions though. We've heard nothing about this. Maybe we will soon.Here's the post by Vince P. "The relationship between Barack Obama and unrepentant terrorist William Ayers appears to be even more involved than we already knew. Papers just released by the University of Illinois-Chicago, after much public pressure, show that Obama and Ayers collaborated as members of the board of the Woods Fund to funnel money to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ and the Arab American Action Network - founded by Rashid Khaldidi who supported Yassir Arafat and the Palestinians against Israel. In fact, by 1997 Obama and Ayers were collaborators on a far more significant level. They sat together for several years on the board of the Woods Fund, a left-wing Chicago charitable organization. There, they doled out tens of thousands of dollars to such beneficiaries as the Trinity Church (where Obama was a longtime member and where another Obama mentor, Jeremiah Wright, preached a radical, anti-American brand of Black Liberation Theology) and the Arab American Action Network (co-founded by Rashid Khalidi, a Yasser Arafat apologist who has supported attacks against Israel and now directs Columbia University’s notorious Middle East Institute, founded by Edward Said)."We should all care about our country FIRST, not our political party. May God have mercy on us all.

Convention so far.

Media does their job for one day.

Republicans say stop.

Media says, Seig Heil and cheerleads for Republicans.

All back to normal.

Good job, Chris, for one day we had a media. Go back to sucking McCains Balls.

What struck me most about the GOP convention was the utter lack of diversity on the floor.

I don't find it particularly shocking. I just wonder how Republicans can hold up signs that say "Country First", while, on the floor of their convention, you have to look really hard to find any people of color.

To me, that hits home when you're asking the question, "Who does the GOP really represent?"

Enjoy your day in the sun, Joe. Your office in the next Congress will be in Arlington! It's sad to see a public figure with Joe's length of service self-destruct.

Last night was a cameo of just what today's GOP is. (i.e. a party of intolerent, old phonies with not a clue of what is going on in this country).

Ok Republicans, start on me now, but beware that I was a Republican from 1972 onwards to 2004 when I took a good hard look at Bush and our party. So did millions of others.

Sarah Palin proves that McCain, rather than being the reformer I'd worked for in 2000, has become part of the problem, not the solution. Sad fact of life.

jack,

Clearly you didn't watch the Democratic convention, especially Barack Obama's address.

The Dems outlined the failed policies of the Bush Administration, pushed into law during the six years of complete Republican control of government. They then made the point that John McCain has either supported those policies 90+% of the time, or changed his position within the last 12 months to fit in with those policies.

Obama then stood at the podium and told us what will be different in an Obama presidency.

Either you weren't watching, or you keep your fingers in your ears when the Dems start talking.

"turncoat" that is precisely the wrong mentality--look at the issues and decide who rep what--how many people agree with not protecting live births the way obama does--the majority of americans don't agree with that extreme stuff--

--and democrats and women democrats that are pro choice are only pro choice when the person chooses "abortion"--they can't show respect or tolerance if the person ie palain and her daughter choose to let the baby live--

--the convention last night was a breath of fresh air--finally some issues were discussed and false one liners like mcsame weren't used--when you refuse to have debates that you agreed to have and you resort to one liners after you said you wanted to discuss the issues people begin to wonder why you aren't discussing the issues

Lieberman won’t win over any Dems with that speech. Moderates or independents may be swayed, but it’s unlikely if they all know his seismic shift in ideology. And that speech didn’t seem very authentic.

Great summary CC.

Fred could have done with some of that energy during his campaign.

And Joe... turncoat. He's goneski after the election when the Dems have such large majority they no longer need him.

Will be interesting to see Palin tonight. I just saw her on Fox doing her walk-through of the venue... looking like a deer in the headlights. I have a feeling she is going to crash and burn badly over the next 2 months.
