When I look at the choice you have in front of you in November I honestly feel sorry for you as a nation. And please, I don't mean that to be insulting. I don't hate Americans by any stretch. I believe you deserve better than this. Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin are the best that the Democrats and Republicans can offer?

I have to wonder if this combination of anger and helplessnes towards the political process amongst the educated class is anything like what your Founding Fathers were feeling in the early 1770s. I swear it is as good as taxation without representation. Do any of these yahoos really represent you? Do they really understand what the average person cares about? And are they looking to make any sort of improvement in your lives or in the lives of your children? I'm really beginning to see why Americans are as tax-averse as they are - Congress takes your money and doesn't really spend it on you. I don't love paying taxes, but at least I can see where a lot of it gets spent and how it makes an improvement in my daily life. You get a choice between the Giant Douche and the Turd Sandwich, both of whom have been presented to you by the money gleaned from special interest groups and lobbyists all looking to protect their own and spend your money.

Your nation has better and brighter to offer. They just can't break through the stranglehold that the Repos and the Dems have on the process - they might as well be Bloods and Crips, except they've divided up the turf and are just looking to keep things right the way they are. If there was a boat full of tea in Boston Harbour right now, I'd bet money on the cargo going over the side in the not too distant future.

Better and brighter is right. Those folks were weeded out and tossed aside as part of our Primary process. I sometimes wonder if there is another country on the planet in which intellect is considered a political handicap...

I watched the whole episode on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. Words cannot describe how disappointed I was, as I had hoped there was actually something, somewhere that McCain and the GOP saw in her that was not coming across. I mean, she could be the POTUS by the end of January, 2009.

I was nearly dumbstruck by her "good guys and bad guys" thought process on Israel and Iran, and her inability to stay on topic without getting lost in "talking points" that were mixed up and interleaved to the point where I am sure Miss Teen USA - South Carolina is now greatly relieved that another woman has taken the title of Miss Most-Incoherent-Babble-on-National-Television from her. Someone needs to quickly tell the GOP having the least capable person as VP on this ticket is not good for America. And likely not good for the GOP as Katie Couric noted at the end of her piece on Palin that her ratings have plummeted 14 or so points in the last week.

Katie Couric must be thinking she is in the wrong business. Jim

I guess while the elephant team had her hidden away "teaching" her the GOP and John McCain way of thinking, all they really did was take turns boning her three at a time. A month or so air tight and that is what happens, you look a bit disheveled when you come out and apparently can't really think straight.

Seriously I think Alaska is going to reject her once this is over and all she got from the whole episode was rough, gang sex for a few months and a ticket home to be a hockey Mom again. She will have put any chance for women in the office of President and VP back a lot more than 4 years.

Palin is not of the D.C. machine, she is so far from it she must appear a little lost in space. Do you want genuine change or not?
