McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent Track Record with Video Game Issues

August 29, 2008 -

CNN is now reporting that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be John McCain's running mate.

Palin, 44, who has been governor for only two years, appears to have little track record with video games - or much of anything else.

She was a city council person in Wasilla, Alaska from 1992-1996 and was later mayor of that town. She failed in an attempt to become Alaska's Lt. Gov. in 2002, and won the top seat in 2006.

Palin has two sons and three daughters. Her oldest son, age 18, is scheduled to be deployed to Iraq later this yer.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Compared to some of the other women in politics who are real howlers, she ain't so bad looking. Still don't know who I'd vote for, as I have no real strong conviction about either one of these idiots.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Are you kidding me?! She only has been governor for 18 months. Palin is under investigation by the state legislature. How would she fare in a debate against Biden, especially on foreign policy? She is a presidential assassination or a presidential death in office away from being president and her experience is only being mayor of an 8,000-person town and 18 months of governorship. Senator McCain simply put did not make a smart choice and he criticizes Obama on his experience and judgement.

I should also say that several congressional republicans from Alaska are currently under suspicion for corruption.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Consider this: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal(who was just elected no sweat months ago) was also considered by McCain as his running mate(McCain even invited Jindal to spend a weekend at his ranch in Arizona).

Jindal was supposed to give a speech at the Republican convention but he's probably canceled those plans with Hurricane Gustav on the horizon.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Very true.  On the face of it, this may try to woo those disgruntled Clinton supporters, but a closer look would reveal that this move will ultimately backfire and just provide more grist for Obama's mill.  Just wait until the VP debates and watch; Biden will make mincemeat of her.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Her youngest child has Down syndrome.  She is a brilliant choice, and she assures McCain's victory.

Well nvm then.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

"- or much of anything else."

 

What is your point Dennis?

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

He is saying that she is even less experienced than Obama. How can McCain claim to be against Obama's lack of experience and then choose as VP someone with even less experience.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Nevermind the fact that she is only the vice president, her EXTREMELY high approval rateing and has acctualy done something during her term in office (cleaning up corruption vs....... yeah) and she acctualy won the election for her job (go on, look up how Obama got his)

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Yes.  But do you know what the primary role of the VP is?  It's to step in should the President become indisposed or incapable of performing his role.  McCain just put a person with less that a single full guv term under her belt (oh, and mayor of a town with a population of less than 5,000 people) into that spot.  And let's face it, McCain is old, and he has a history of health issues.

Not to mention her own corruption problems that have already been pointed out.  She has used her own unethical tactics to get what she wants.  In addition to the mess that she's under investigation for now, you should take a look at her role in a State owned dairy plant...

I am not at all comfortable with his choice of VP, and a lot of die hard republicans feel the same.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

 How Obama won his? You mean by election? It's called democracy, get it right. Wow, she has an extremely high approval rating in a state dominated by like-minded Republicans. That is shocking! I am shocked!

 

Oh wait...what's this? An ethics investigation? Hmmm. She's only been governor for a year and a half and is already under investigation? Looks like she's doing GREAT at cleaning up all that corruption!

 

Try thinking for yourself instead of following the other sheep.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

No acctualy, considering he ran unopposed...

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

I think the number you want is 143...that should clear up this little bit of confusion

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

I knew this was going to happen. I was talking about this in the car with my family as we car pooled to work today and I had a feeling he'd pick a woman. It'd make common sense to get at Hillary voters.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

First, people vote the top of the ticket. Second, if you are a pro-choice woman, you won't be voting for a pro-life woman VP candidate.

Furthermore, this undercuts McCain's argument that Obama isn't "experienced" enough to lead when he picks someone younger and even more inexperienced to be a heartbeat away from the presidency (considering also that McCain just turned 72 years old). Mostly, I want to see how she handles herself in a debate with Joe Biden as well.

Honestly, if you're cynical enough to say that women will just vote for the ticket with a woman on it, then you're also cynical enough to say Obama will lose because he's black (which if he loses, I still won't believe that as the top reason). You'll also be willing to say that every female in this country automatically voted for Mondale-Ferraro in 1984...which didn't happen.

Honestly, I think Romney would have been the better choice. Someone conservatives were comfortable with and someone that has enough noteworthy accomplishments to give him an edge as the next commander-in-chief.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Mitt Romney isn't a real conservative.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Romney isn't a real person. He's an artificial construct from the future.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Touche!

 

I'd do accented "e" but I'm too damn tired to and don't even remember the code for it. <_<

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Personally, I'm finding that Obama being black is one of the most logical explanations as to why he isn't doing better than he already is. I go out of my way to bring up the election in general discussions, and I keep finding these die hard white male democrats that are favoring McCain because Obama seems inexperienced, which seems to me more like they're not willing to admit they won't vote for black. Particularly, when I can go down a list of issues and demonstrate how their views match Obama's in every concievable way while they have nothing in common with McCain, yet they're content to keep the inexperience black man out of office. They either put way too much value on experience, or are racists, though I'd never rule out the possiblity of the being complete idiots. They do also come up with other reasons, like how they prefer Clinton, or Obama doesn't have a chance of winning; this adds more weight to the complete idiot argument.

On the other hand there are a lot of people I've spoken to that still for some reason support Clinton. Again, they point to issues and experience, to which I respond bull**** and bull****. I point them toward all the information they need to realize that Obama is essentially the same as Clinton, but they really want a woman. At best they're on the fence about voting for Obama, and I get the don't expect them to for the cantidate that shares their political views when they can vote for the one that has matching genitals or skin color. I'd hope there aren't enough people like this that it'd be a factor, but honestly it's going more and more down this road.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

And sadly with more people having views like that in either direction, everybody will be accused of either being a sexist against women if they vote for Obama, or a racist if they vote for McCain.  So it's a true no win situation.  So I'm just going to say screw it and vote for who I believe in, regardless of what I am called.  Couldn't care less what's between their legs or what color there skin is.  I just don't want any more of Bush's politics.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

One interesting thing to note:

 

No matter who McCain would pick for VP, the conservatives would have still voted for him. He could have picked Hiliary and the conservatives would have voted for him, because in a Conservatives mind, McCain/X is better than Obama. He could declare himself a moderate, become Pro-Choice, and encourage a socialist government, and Conservatives would STILL vote for him, strictly because they are convinced Obama is the devil.

The point Im trying to make is that no matter what he does, his election is going to rely on the moderate, independant vote, more than anything else, and this VP pick was strictly to pick up independants and disillusioned Clinton Supporters. 

I do have to admit, even being an Obama supporter, myself, it was a very smart move in the McCain Camp.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

"40% of americans that vote will vote Democrat no matter what. Another 40% will vote Republican for the same reasons. The reason is because mommy or daddy, or their high school teacher did. Elections really only hinder on the 20% that are undecided."

-Tom Clancy, Executive Orders (Slight Paraphrasing)

I'm part of that 20%, and I'm not liking either candidates at this point in time. I'm waiting for some Independent candidate to come out of nowhere and blow them away, but I know it won't happen because that 80% will always vote the same.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

That is why I put the feminist part into my comment. Only die hard feminists will vote for someone because she is a woman. Die hard Democrats will vote for Obama, even if they originally supported Hillary.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Bullshit. Feminists will not vote for a anti choice candidate. Reproductive rights are a cornerstone of the feminist movement, and no femminist will vote for someone that will take them away. A few hillary diehards might change sides, but there are not many at all that thick. Especially after last night's great speeches by Obama and Clinton.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

No, die hard feminist will vote against someone because they are a women (as they want the first female president to be a good one), stupid people are the ones who will vote for her because of her gender

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Actually, my mother was considering voting for Hillary solely because she was a woman. She doesn't pay attention to the canditates, just votes for the one she thinks looks cool, and she thought that maybe having a woman president would be good.

Her ignorance must be bliss *sigh*

Oh, and my mom is almost the farthest one could get from feminist.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

She has more experience in running large organizations than Obama does.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Dark is right again, though I do enjoy the little partisan digs GP chips in here and there helps to let you know where he stands.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

"What exactly is it a V.P. does every day?" - Sarah Palin. July 31, 2009 on CNBC.

Did her four years as a council member or two terms as mayor of a "large" organization (pop. est. 8,471) in Wasilla bring her such insight? Maybe her one term as governor?

The experience issue is not MY argument. It's from the McCain campaign. For the record, Obama's "inexperience" encompasses representing the South Side of Chicago for seven years in the Illinois state legislature which in itself has a larger and more diverse population than Wasilla. It encompasses working in Washington with a deeply divided legislature for the past four years. But again, experience is not the issue for Democrats, it's the issue for John McCain, and he just showed how disingenuous that stance was when he decided to "wow" his party.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

A senator so out of touch he can't use acomputer and forgets haw many houses he has? A small town mayor with less esperience then the man the republicans themselves are accusing of being inexpirenced? I want to trust these people with the country! I can really identify with them!

Seriously ,this is a blatant attempt to pander to women and young people to offset McCain's pro-life stance, and ''computer illiteracy".

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

 Considering their is actually a soundbite of her saying that not to long ago ago it sounds like the dems have the makings for their very first attack ad... Her inexperience is bad enough, but then you have to throw in that not to long ago she didn't even know one the second highest job in the country does; that's gonna sting, it really does scream that she is just a trophy VP to please former hillary supporters... atleast Biden could counter his quote from one year ago with "Obama proved me wrong"

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

"It encompasses working in Washington with a deeply divided legislature for the past four years"

lol try again, I'll wait also your news from the future is indeed most disconcerting :)

or rather 

I'll take a two year executive as VP than a one year senator with no executive exp. with an insider VP.  It is a funny situation to be sure and one that will have the dems flumexed for some time, regardless you can look at the issues and even then Obama/Biden do not stack up. 

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

That's because you're a truly ignorant and stupid human being.

She's a mayor from the far north. FROM THE FAR NORTH.

 

Have you ever BEEN to the far north? Do you have any idea what it's like up here?

Unless the United States of America is suddenly overrun by drunk natives, there is nothing in her executive experience which will help her in her post.

She got the job because she showed up, and nobody else applied. That's the way it is up here. She kept the job pretty much because no matter how badly she screws up, no matter how little she does, or how stupid the things she does are, nobody else wants to deal with that job, because the only other people are either industrial workers who won't take a massive pay cut to run some outpost in the boondocks, or lazy welfare bums who wouldn't get off their ass if their homes were on fire.

 

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

"one year senator"

Thats not right at all, Obama was elected in 2005, my mistake however his total working days in the senate is very low.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Again, experience is not my argument. It's McCain's argument. If experience is an issue for the Republicans, a one-term governor should be just as disconcerting as a one-term senator when that phone rings at "3 a.m."

I imagine though that Obama is familiar as to the duties of the President and Biden is familiar with the simple and the traditional duties of the Vice President. I hope she brushes up on her textbooks between now and the first debate.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

A one year Governor has more experience at running the country then a 32 years old senator. Senators pass laws they don''t run the country.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Well i wouldn't really say that... the president needs to work on both a national and international level and thus must be able to consider and understand a world wide demographic. A senator, while they may not work an executive role do work on a national and international level... the laws they pass don't just account for their state but for the entire country and thus they need to understand a nation wide demographic; they also have to look over resolutions concerning dealings with other countries. They also have a lot of influence and are able to work overseas, travel the country and so forth all of which helps the building experience about the people and what the country needs; this varies from senator to senator. A governor may be an executive role but it covers a very small demographic, especially in the case of alaska which has a very small population and they don't have much time to work outside their own states like senators...

So when it comes to Palin, we know that she knows alaska damn well but what about the rest of the country? does she have any understanding of the various conditions states are in? Does she know what the desires, needs, struggles of the west coast, the east coast or way down south? Does she understand people who are from a demographic outside of her state? Does she know anything about our allies or our enemies in other countries? can we trust her to be able to deal with our enemies and allies if she were to become president? This is something she's gonna have to prove in the coming weeks

Overall, while being a governor and mayor gives you executive experience, being a senator puts you in a better position to understand how the entire country and the rest of the world works... having executive experience is meaningless if you have no idea how the rest of the country and world works; ya only need to look at george bush for that

... so far, her executive experience hasn't been enough to tell her what a vice president does from day to day (especially funny since a little google searching will get you most any answer you want now-a-days)

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

all of these comments assume that Obama does know what he is talking about on major issues, but he is wrong so much, he never talks about nuclear energy, wants to be rid of oil in ten years, raise the capital gains tax, and increase governemtn in business frankly his lack of experience is just the icing on the cake.  The idea that he knows how the world works as a 1 term senator is insane, ya only need to look at his global poverty act for that.  

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

 Alot of people actually do back up the stances that Obama takes; not everyone is supporting him just because he's got charisma... Nuclear energy for one, i think his primary concern has been what to do with the waste. McCain is a big supporter of nuclear power but i don't think i've ever heard him give an answer to how he'll deal with the waste. And we do need to break our dependence on oil, not just the foreign stuff... I think mccain is trying to make energy his chief issue with Palin (even though we KNOW the real reason he picked her), but her answer to energy problems is to keep on drilling; that's the kind of mentality that got us into this mess in the first place. Mccain is probably gonna take a lot of heat from environmental groups; Palin seems to have a record of pursuing oil at the expense of the evironment

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yucca_Mountain

Its wiki I know, but you'll get the idea

Drilling is part of the solution no matter how you slice it, of course more needs to be done and thank god for the most productive private sector in the world, but when Obama dismiss drilling and nuclear off-hand then you can see where problems arise.  Keeping with energy, Obama wants to redistribute oil industry wealth (see socialism) ideas like this are simply anti-growth and frankly childish. 

Also Obama still has not answered for his stances on infanticide or his relationship with  Bill Ayers and all that stuff matters for the posistion of President of the United States of America.  I really hope Obama gets some tough questions thrown his way because frankly he has a lot to answer for and the american people deserve that inforamtion. 

As for Palin, which is the real issue, she does have executive experience, down play it all you want, and is a fine choice as VP, Obama himself would have made a good VP choice given his lack of experience, A Bill Richardson Obama ticket would have won handedly.  Instead the Deomcarts picked a green, wet behind the ears leftist.  Let the chips fall where they may.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

how can you say someone would may make a fine choice for VP but not a good choice for President. Considering the VP must be someone ready to serve at a moments notice the VP should be someone who themselves is ready to be president. Despite how unlikely it is the president dying while in office is a very real possibility; the VP is someone we need to be able to trust with running the country should it be needed otherwise we are rather screwed. McCain choose to pick a VP who will do nothing while in office, nothing but a mere trophy to bring him voters while Obama choose someone who would not only be active as a VP but has enough experience to serve should it come to that. not to mention it sounds like mccain was seriously considering others and changed his mind is just a few days; only thing more impulsive than his choice for VP was Palin's decision to except after only a month ago saying she had no idea what the day to day duties are. Considering what Clinton would have brought to the democratic ticket it's easy to see that Obama chose his VP on actual merits while McCain's is completely political.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

First off do not kid yourself both choices were political, Obama pick of Biden is a  clear omission of his lack of experience and knack for political calculation ie not a new type of politician at all, no change, yes we can? No. 
 

It is amazing that peopel are worried about Palin as VP when Obama is less qualified and is running for president.  Also look at who is third in line for the presidency and it makes Palin look better and better

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Thank God you were all over YUCCA MOUNTAIN. 

I'm sick and tired of people bitching about Nuclear Energy, and then complaining coal is too dirty and whatnot.  The truth is, Nuclear Reactors are amazing.  They work great, they work a lot cleaner than coal, and they're extremely safe. 

For anyone who wants more insight into a nuclear reactor, go to youtube and type in Penn Teller Bullshit Nuclear.  Find the video that's nine minutes long posted by Jal337 or something like that, and watch the whole three parts. 

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Obama is 47 years old, as you can't even run for President until you are 35 anyway. A little civics lesson there.

Jack Cafferty had a nice point. Alaska has a population of about 670,000, roughly the size of Austin, TX. Wasilla is a town of 8,000 or so. So, she governed a largely homogenous state of few people where Republicans outnumber Democrats 3 to 1. How is this just like running the United States of America?

How much does she know about inner-city poverty, drug abuse issues, local homeland security and emergency services that cities like NY and Chicago and LA have to deal with, the loss of industrial jobs in the upper Midwest, etc.?

I love the hypocricy coming from those who are already McCain supporters. How does John McCain continue to say that Barack Obama is not ready to lead, but Sarah Palin, a 2 year governor of one of least populous states in the Union, is perfectly acceptable as insurance for a 72 year old man with a history of dealing with cancer.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Smart move to grab the agry Hilary people while still staying conservative.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

As much as I hate to admit that so many people will vote for someone just because they lack a Y chromosome, I think you're right Anon. I know nothing about either VPs, but with the big deal McCain's been making about Obama not being old enough for the White House, this is a odd choise. I know that The VP has very little actuall power, but this, to my cynical nature, smacks of a ploy to get votes.

 

If you cannot best a man in argument, all is not lost. You can still call him vile names.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

Though in this case it could very well work against McCain.

One of the challenges female canidates tend to have is that women are reluctant to vote for other women, esp when you get into socially concervative groups.

I can recall years ago getting to chat with someone involved in jury selection for a rape trial.. one of the things they commented was that for such trials, the absolute worse people to have on the jury (from the victim's perspective) were other women...... same tends to be true in politics.  While female canidates need a good solid grass roots support from women, it is generally males voting for them (I would be curious to see a modern breakdown though) with females generally voting among male canidates.

Re: McCain Picks Sarah Palin as VP; Alaska Guv Has No Apparent

McCain probably just won. All Hilary supporters will definitely vote MCCain now.
