Now and then, I will run across comments made by folks at other political discussion sites that grab my attention. If I think the comment is right on the money OR in some instances, indicative of the person not having a CLUE, I'll post it in this thread. Please post any that you find, too!
Here's an excellent comment I found today at TRUTHOUT, written by Anonymous about McCain's VP choice, Sarah Palin:
To me, there are several concerns. First, the fact that McCain chose a running mate based on whether or not having a woman on the ticket would be of benefit to fool women voters (as she's against reproductive rights) and an extreme conservative to appease a fringe element of our society, albeit a large one. Second, the fact that she has zero foreign policy experience. Third, her budget experience is on a very limited... first to small town and PTA level, then to oversee those who oversaw the budget of a state with a very, very small population and huge amount of tax income from a single industry. Fourth, that she's all for selling even more of our land to those who would destroy it. Fifth, that it appears that she is not above corruption herself, and for very personal reasons. OK, that's a whole hand, as they say. It scares me that this is the person who would be a heartbeat away from the presidency. ~~ Lane Baldwin -- alifewithspirit.blogspot.com LINK
There's also a report about why McCain did not choose Lieberman as his running mate.
