Thread: Politics and religion.

  1. Gerald Ford was a fashion model...
    Harry Truman was a failed haberdasher...
    Lyndon Johnson was a school teacher...
    Ronald Reagan was president of his trade union...
    George Bush was a college cheerleader...
    John McCain was a POW...

    All facts we know that have nothing to do with ability to be president.

    Women don't get a special pass not to have their history known.

    I looked for where Giselle made special mention of Ms. Palin history as a contestant in a beauty contest but I don't see where she made special mention. It was in a list with other items about her.

    I have read the newspapers and I have yet to see anyone say this one element of her history does or does not qualify her for the position of vice-president.

    And I sure haven't seen...

    a bunch of ladies complaining because she's pretty

    Yes... it was in a list that was made to point out why she is not a good candidate. What winning a beauty pageant has to do with that I don't know.

    No. It was not a list to point out why she is not a good candidate. It was part of a list describing who she is....

    Palin:
    - 44 year old mom
    - won Miss Wasilla beauty pageant
    - majored in journalism; was a sports reporter
    - rose from mayor to governor in the past 8 years
    Whining should at least be done accurately!

    We obviously read things and interpret them differently. From my point of view... you are being inaccurate. You claim that no one keeps pointing out that she is only a beauty pageant winner playing politician. Perhaps the things you have read don't say that... many of the things I read DO say just that. Doesn't make me wrong just because you turn a blind eye

    sorry LOL I didn't realize that stating that being beautiful doesn't make you incompetent was whining. I suppose the same could be said for being passive aggressive.

    Nope! I'm complaining because they seem to think one woman is interchangeable for another. Now if they had crossed lines and appointed Hillary, then I would have been impressed!

    LOL could you imagine the talk then? I think it would be a frosty day in h#ll before McCain and Clinton would team up lol could you imagine the cat fights in the white house?

    it would be interesting to see cindy and Bill in their aprons baking cookies together in the white house kitchen (there was actually a "cook off" in Family circle magazine for all the possible "first spouses" ... who could make the best cookies lol. I will have to look up which cookies Bill submitted lol)

    McCain must think that one women is the same as the next.
    He really doesn't get it.

    I've heard that the party bigwigs didn't want her to be chosen & this
    really is the choice McCain made himself.


    This Palin person has the coldest eyes I've
    ever seen. Watch her the next time she speaks & see if you see a real
    person behind her smile. She gives me a creepy feeling.

    That was the first speech that I have sat thru in a while.


    IT ROCKED.


    But, I was tuned into MSNBC and couldn't figure out their obsession on showing the daughter that is preggers.

    I am sure Keith Olberman was salivating and that gal that looks like a matchstick- She's the one that looks like she's a 'puppy voter/closet BO admirer"- Andrea Mitchell couldn't wait to tear her down...


    The absolute best part of the speech was her daughter, the youngest one, that stood and waved to the crowd.

    I thought so too! I was pleasantly surprised! She seemed completely at ease. I also thought that Huckabee and Guiliano did a good job too - Romney not so much. Boy she really lit into Obama. I can hardly wait to hear the Democratic reaction.

    Getting old is no fun...

    I was looking at the 'Coming attractions' chyron they had on the screen and saw the HUCKABOO was going to give a speech.


    I got my glasses and laughed.

    Huckabee was fine; Rudy not so much. He was downright ugly at times.

    Palin - I must have missed something. All she did was remind me of my 2nd grade teacher - nice woman, but not one I would consider to become President.

    Of course you wouldn't want to have a second grade teacher run for VP or Prez.

    She'd whip our sorry arses into shape with a few time outs and detentions.

    Do we read anything about your comments about what kind of student you were?


    LIZ!

    You have been looking at too many rock star candidates who's pupils are wide open with the idea of an audience thant hangs on every word!

    All the more reason to elect a teacher.

    ---------

    MSNBC had the best announcers/reporters on the planet.


    Olberman is a vile jerk with a personality of a cat box offering.

    They had a black reporter asking a woman about SP's speech and he said something like, "Wasn't she sarcastic at times?" The gal didn't bother with his question, He lined another one up criticizing SP and then they cut him off to get the Arizona vote without getting the woman's answer.

    Rudy... He was the opening act and did what the opening act does...

    We will have to disagee about Palin, I know, , eh? She just seems so REGULAR. The exact kind of person I want in the White House. A person who knows how we live here in flyover land.

    I live in Lancaster, PA. My heart and soon to be my arse is in South Dakota.
