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:

Quote:
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

There's also a report about why McCain did not choose Lieberman as his running mate.

WATCH JOHN MCCAIN FIDDLE WITH HIS WEDDING RING AS HE OGLES SARAH PALIN

from James Wolcott:

Quote:
John McCain, using the touchy-feely language usually associated with Match.com ads, described his vice presidential pick Sarah Palin as "a partner and soul mate," though to his credit he neglected to call her the wind beneath his sails and sigh, "She completes me." But it doesn't take a Sherlock to deduce from this video (courtesy of The Jed Report), which shows McCain Freudian-fiddling with his wedding ring as he glances sidelong at his running (soul_mate, that his unconscious longs to sack the Republican Party's earthmother savior in the end zone, if I may borrow a football metaphor in honor of the upcoming NFL season.
