Palin Staying in the Spotlight, Back on the Campaign Trail

Sarah Palin will be campaigning for Saxby Chambliss on Sunday and throughout next week in Georgia. Sarah’s massive popularity in Georgia should give Chambliss’ run-off campaign an energy boost. And while Palin isn’t the only big name Republican to turn out for Chambliss, others include Huckabee, Romney, and McCain, she is most certainly the brightest star at this point. With a close race against Democrat Jim Martin on his hands Chambliss can certainly use all the support he can get. Hopefully this, coupled with the lack of Obama voters for Martin, will put Chambliss over the top. We shall see…

Hey someone in the media finally gets it!

Shocking, I know. But true. Just check out Jonathan Martin’s article over at The Politico. Its about how McCain will be called a racist no matter what. Sure its something that’s been obvious for months but, hey, give him credit for figuring it out at all. P.s. Someone should send this to McCain and tell him to start making Rev. Wright an issue again. Its not racist by any means and its completely relevant.  After all he attended that nut job “church” for twenty years yet he still tries to claim that he has good judgement… its a joke waiting

Congress finally gets oil drilling right, by doing nothing.

It took forever but Congress has finally caved and will not stop new drilling for off-shore oil. Good news I’d say. But, of course, as anybody who knows anything about government can tell you, there is still a mile of red tape to get through before anybody can actually go and actually drill for oil offshore. The biggest problem is in getting congress to pass a revenue sharing bill which cuts the states in on the money that drilling will enevitably bring in. Until then its doubtfull that the states will allow any drilling… But I’m hopeful. After all this

House passes drilling bill!!! Oh, wait…

Yea… we can drill now. The only problem is that we can only drill where there isn’t any oil. Oh and in exchange for getting to drill where there isn’t any oil we have to pay more taxes. And I say we for a reason, sure the estimated 18 billion dollars in new taxes will be leavied on the oil industry but, as anyone with half a brain knows, those taxes will most certainly be passed right along to us. Of course the Democratically controlled congress doesn’t understand that because well… they’re working with a smidge less than half a

Biden vs Palin so far…

So the number 1s have chosen their number 2s. Lets take a minute to make a video comparison of the two latest video from Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. Here’s biden at a campaign event making a little gaffe and sounding just plain painful… (Bob Casey jr was negative 2 years old at the time) httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN5khF2i2ek&eurl=http://hotair.com/archives/2008/08/30/video-biden-sees-unborn-people/ And here’s Sarah Palin on CNBC sounding smooth and informed… plus she isn’t afraid to directly critique her own party. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GE11URmmnc&eurl=http://hotair.com/archives/2008/08/29/video-palin-knocks-biden-on-drilling-ties-it-to-national-security/ McCain’s pick looks better and better every hour… can you say the same of Obama’s pick?

Sarah Palin, The most experienced?

So, now that the pick is in, its time for the Democratic attacks to start… What about Sarah Palin (who went to the University of Idaho) will they attack you ask? Well, as Ironic as it is, her inexperience… That’s right, Barack Obama and his surrogates will attack Sarah Palin because she doesn’t have enough experience to lead… boy oh boy. Now, any sane person will surely see right through this pathetic tactic (seriously, couldn’t they come up with anything better?) but I figure why not examine it anyway? Well, it is true that Sarah Palin has only been Governor

Obama intro video: less than a minute dedicated to his experience

I just rewound my Tivo after I was surprised at how little time they dedicated to trying to establish Barack Obama’s experience in his introduction video. And I’m not kidding on this… it was less than one minute, and that includes when they were talking about his “community organizer” and state senate days. According to my rough count they spent about 20-30 seconds (my exact count was 20 but I’ll throw in a buffer) on his national political experience. And even more odd than the lack of time spent on his national experience, because lets face it there just isn’t
