Liveblogging Palin

So...let's see what she says: (Damn she is looking fine tonight)

"I will be honored to accept your nomination for vice president of the United States."
A historical moment, but shadowed by the absurdity of the election so far.

"Time for politics and a time for leadership."
What about Bush?

"A true profile in courage"
Right...haven't heard that before

"Victory within site"
Has anyone actually defined victory?

"Proud of the armed forces blah blah"
Walter Reed ring a bell?

"Beautiful baby boy named Trig"
WTF name is Trig? Why did she take a plane before delivering it? The baby will NEVER have a normal life.

"Children with special needs inspire love"
Why did God create this retardation? We should focus on solving it, not on accommodating and accepting it.

"World champion snow machine racer"
? Why is he receiving a standing ovation?

"My parents are here tonight."
The mom looks more presidential.

"Difference between a hocky mom and a pitbull? Lipstick."

What did the job involve?
Community organizer + responsibilities (Ha, if that's her best, she's toast)
Small town people don't know how to react...

"John McCain is the same man"
Explaining his various flip flops that came about due to Alzheimers.

"I'm going to Washington to serve the people"

"Leave this nation better than we found it"
Like Bush?

"I told the Congress thanks but no thanks on the bridge"

"Broke the monopoly of oil companies"
Then why does she want to ruin the Alaskan environment for their benefit?

"The stakes could not be higher"
Whose fault is that on oil?

"Drilling won't solve every problem is not an excuse to do nothing?"
Do nothing? Obama's energy plan is FAR more ambitious than the same old right wing.

"Never use the word victory"
Republicans are retarded. Victory doesn't exist in Iraq.

"And he's worried that someone won't read them their rights"
The United States should never torture. Period.

Anyway, I'm bored.

You should write a post explaining for the rest of us exactly what it was that made you change from a pro-business Republican into a Democrat so quick.

You still read iSteve at all? I'm the one who used to be named Sleep.

I re-read your Biden post from January and that answers some of my questions. But still, if you dont mind, could you tell me: do you think youve changed your political opinions greatly over the past year or so, or is it just the focus of what you write about that's changed?

I haven't changed my political opinions at all. I'm still leaning toward atheist libertarian.

It's simple math. On the site, the Dems simply blow the Republicans out of the water in terms of reasoned approaches to policy issues.

With the exception of all HBD-related policy fields (education, immigration, etc.) I agree with the Dems on virtually everything.
