"What does the Vice President do all day???"

These are the words of Governor Sarah Palin in the few weeks preceding her actual nomination to that very same position. Have you seen the video on YouTube???

WHOA!! Step back.... these are some very scary words from what I think is a very scary lady. SO she doesn't know what the vice president DOES all day??? What that means is that she will JUST make it up as she goes along! The is terrifying and Cheney-esque. Pause for a moment and think about that. What do we know about this woman??? She favors loyalty to an extreme, fires people for disagreeing with her, wants to ban books, wants to teach Creationism in schools, wants to force girls and women to carry babies to term even if they were victims of rape and incest. I am sure there are other things that will pop up that will make voters question her qualifications.

I am monumentally pissed off at John McCain, who I could live with as President, I could live with the idea---at least until he chose her. For me, he made this election a must-win for Obama.

At first it's funny, but as it sinks in, it's beyond frightening.

The thought of her sitting as the Veep makes Cheney seem like the Pope. Cheney might be corrupt, but at least he's aware of the laws and lines when he oversteps them! Like you said, she wouldn't even know her limits...as if she'd give a flyin' flip.

"What does the Veep do all day?" = "What are the limits of the office?" = "Oh, what's the constitution?"

McCain absolutely disgusts me...the guy's gone completely freelance.

God help us if the Republicans take this election. With Roe vs. Wade hanging in the balance, lots of blood could spill over this one.

The 'Maverick' is all about sucking up to the conservative right. Think about it. The man who says he fights curruption and works for the people and America First showed his true colors when he picked his VP. He sucked up the the religious right. Not much of a maverick. More of a suck up.
