    Either McCain will say just about anything, or he is delusional. What more can be said?

    Looks to me like he has sold his soul.

    What more can be said?



    Wait a minute ... I'll think of something.

    You can watch him actually say this on the netcast of Meet The Press, from this morning.

    Palin has a BA in journalism.

    If McCain said that, he is unfit to be president. I think he has lost his mind.


    Palin is unfit for public office, and I hope the FBI launches a corruption investigation. Apparently there is plenty of evidence, and lots of witnesses.

    Maybe Palin should drop him from the ticket.

    Elections are all about timing a peak to election day. I think McCain has already peaked.

    I think you initially correct about the BS, which does not mean baccalaureate.

    Somewhat lost due to shock is the fact this is cited by McCain as her national security credential.

    It is also possible that he is not delusional and believes what he says. Which would mean that he is incredibly ignorant. I haven't yet ruled out this possibility. He certainly isn't the brightest bulb in the box.

    Maybe McCain is sabotaging the GOP ticket! Or he's just totally lost it.


    I wonder how many real conservatives will leave the GOP. I've got to imagine people like Hagel are looking at this and wondering what the heck is going on.

    Why can't the GOP put Hagel or someone like him up?

    More likely I think is that he is getting desperate to defend his inspired choice. It worked as a gimmick, but now it's time to pay the piper.

    I don't think she shoots grizzlies. They can fight back.

    I think her hunting is for moose. About as dangerous as shooting a cow.

    The bear skin in her office her Dad shot.

    Apparently because the GOP has been hijacked by the Ralph Reed/Karl Rove extremists that want to use power to spread their brand of moralism, even if it means subverting the Constitution.

    I am waiting to see if this week changes anything.

    McCain seems to be trying to keep blowing Palin's bubble bigger and bigger everyday to distract everyone from real issues. Eventually the bubble will burst. Maybe this week, or maybe the next. Maybe not until her debate with Biden, but trust me, that bubble will burst.

    -Bubble analogy thanks to Chuck Todd at NBC.

    I also don't think she shoots grizzlies. You usually don't shoot grizzlies, anyway. You shoot your friend in the kneecap. You never want to be the slowest person in the group when you're being chased by a grizzly.

    Moose are a little bit more dangerous than cows. Bring more than a bow and arrow. In fact, bring more than Chevy Lumina.

    So no consideration for the third option? The reason Guiliani gave?

    I feel the love in here. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling watching you guys getting antsy over the current polling situation. Very enjoyable. Not worthy of remaining an open thread in a serious forum, but entertaining, nonetheless.

    Thats for sure.

    http://chronicle.com/news/article/5092/palin-attended-4-colleges-in-5-years-to-earn-diploma

    This was also on MSNBC, so was the fact that she had her first child just eight months after she married. This in itself would be not be a big deal except that the Christian right keeps defending her. The, "she didn't have an abortion" line is only going to go so far.

    As for Palin's energy expertise, McCain has either totally flipped or is like Bush and believes his own lies.

    I see. So the guy was wearing camouflage because he was hiding - to keep from getting stomped to death by a moose?
