Notes from DC

Hello everyone. As I have been largely incognito this week, I figured that I would drop by, say hello, and address a few issues (and hopefully be short enough to not steal Kristofer's thunder)

Specifically, I want to point everyone to the new forum over at Palin for America. I did sign off on it's creation, but that does not affect the comments section here. I would encourage you use the comments section to address the topics discussed in my posts. Off topic discussions, however, can be moved to the more organized (and troll-free) PFA forum. This an addition to our movement, not a change.

Secondly, be sure to watch tommorrow to find out who Gov. Palin will be shredding in the VP debate. For the record, I've been thinking Chet Edwards was "the guy" for several weeks. We'll have to wait and see. See you Sunday, and kudos to Kristofer and Steve for their great guest-blogging.

Well, Dick Morris was just on Fox and says he should go with a woman, he cited Sen. Hutchinson.

Obviously, I partially agree, the major difference being that he should pick Palin!!!

Good luck in DC...

Kristofer said...

Hey Adam,

I am going to predict that Palin will be up against Biden or Reed.

TC said...

I've thought Hutchison was the darkhorse candidate for a while. She has some economic cred (was an bank executive for a while). I'd take her if it wasn't Palin.

the real "original" ted said...

"'original' teds" on the last thread were not "the 'original' ted" (in case there was doubt)

For the sake of discussion, let's say the 3 most likely McCain Veep picks recently were Romney, Pawlenty and Palin. Now what's happened in the last two weeks: The class-warfare # of homes issue diminishes Romney, the boaring tv appearances diminish Pawlenty, so Palin more than ever is tops. (Ridge simply can't be a realistic possibility, abortion views etc.)

Excitement!!! Laura Ingraham just praised Governor Sarah on Greta Van Sustren as a VP choice. Greta showed Sarah's photo.

If it's down to Sebelius or Biden, Palinistas pray for Biden!

Anonymous said...

Ted don't worry if it is Sebelius. I am from Kansas. More later if it needed.

the real "original" ted said...

albeit even w/Sebelius, Palin still the "best" and "must" pick for McCain --and I'm significantly revising some previous views I had vis a vis Sebelius, and I think Palin will be a great (winning) match-up against her as well.

Tyler said...

Just to further Anon's post, Ingraham's mention of Palin was very positive. She called Palin "cool" and made her out to be someone who could really connect with voters. It seems buzz is growing about the possibility of McCain choosing a woman for his VP, especially now in light of Obama's suspected pick as well as other issue developments this week.

Anonymous said...

Sebelius was busy working today, I doubt she would be working in her office if she was going to have her biggest day of her life tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

May be we have 2 Kansans on board. I don't live in Topeka, so I wouldn't know if Sebelius was in her office today or not.--a Kansan.

Adam Brickley, aka "ElephantMan" said...

I don't think it's Sebelius, but a Sebelius-Palin matchup could still work very, very well. It would really bbe a battle for the hearts of American women, and I think Palin resonates far more than Sebelius (who has major connections to the late-term abortion industry and a son who designed a very, very sick board game...I can see the "comparison of sons" issue working out very well).

And Ted, you should get a google account so we can verify which is the real you, otherwise your screenname will soon read "the reall 'original" honest-to-goodnes genuine 100% actual Ted"

The US Secret Service has surrounded Biden's house-I guess that says it all-fake bumper stickers are one thing, but the Secret Service is nobody's pawn-the text message is irrelevant now.

Biden brings nothing to the table-in fact the plagiarist hurts the ticket. He does not bring VA, IN, OH, nothing.

I cannot believe the GOP could be so lucky. An Obama blunder like this is surely sign of more to come.

Anonymous said...

I saw a poll that said McCain was leading Obama in Kansas by 20 something points. It would seem there is no chance of picking up those wheat basket states for BO. There is the question of alienating Hillary voters versus picking up women. My guess, not likely. If it's a woman it will be Hillary. I think Hillary could have gotten away with picking Obama as VP, but for those blue collar folks in middle America, a black man and a unknown white woman is, in my opinion, a losing ticket.
I don't think he can pick anybody that would live up to the hype at this point. Biden? Sheez, what's exciting about that. And he's been "old washington" surely as long as McCain. Close enough. He does have a good biography.
I just really believe that women voters would rally behind McCain were he to tap a woman. I think it could be any of those that have been mentioned, but I think Sarah P. pulls in the conservative vote and puts energy at the front of the issues. But, McCain is his own man. He will go with who he feels good about.

Biden, "slow joe biden" (the 2nd lowest IQ in the Senate, Boxer is lower)

This is GRRRRREAT!!!!!!!

Ted said...

Sarah, boy did you luck out, the debate(s) will be cake!

Dave J. said...

Biden is a world-class buffoon: his self-importance makes even Obama look like a paragon of humility by comparison. He's the definition of "DC-as-usual" that puts the lie to Obama's supposedly new politics. And despite his 30+ years in the Senate, he doesn't have any executive experience. Palin would be such a perfect contrast.

Kristofer said...

Confirmed, Biden is the choice.

ryan trabuco said...

I agree. Gov. Palin's stock should totally rise now that Obama has his Biden.

I think its funny that the McCain camp is throwing out a memo about the 15pt bump they "think" Obama will get after the DNC. The day after should McCain announce that Palin is his choice, I think it ultimately becomes the game changer for 2008.

The bounce for Obama could be a drop as McCain/Palin do a week-long tour of the country leading up to the RNC when the ticket can experience a REAL 15-pt bounce in the polls.

C'mon Sen. McCain -- let's "energize" America with the GOP energy ticket, McCain/Palin.

Ted said...

kristofer, I must say that you turned out to be right, no female Veep for Obama (neither Hillary nor Sebelius), and I'll also confess that the timing for Palin now appears good as well.

Palin v. Biden, excellent!

Laura said...

dr. v:

I wanted to let you know that sometimes I had to read your posts twice because I swear I wrote them. It's uncanny how much we think alike.

After Hillary got our hopes up that the glass ceiling could be broken, it will be so disappointing not to see a woman on either ticket.

You're right-- women will rally around John McCain if he chooses Sarah Palin. And especially if Obama sends his text message of who will be his VP at 3:00 a.m.

Laura

Thanks for letting us hear from you, Adam. God bless you in your new work in DC, too.

I hope it is Biden. He's Mr. Gaffe (although Senator McCain would do himself and all of us a BIG favor if he could think thrice before he makes some of HIS joke-gaffes, too. Under $5,000,000 is middle-class? Ri-ight......).

Hillary's former campaign advisor said today that Obama's staff never even asked for papers to vet her. No wonder she and Bill are livid.

I have this sick feeling, though, that what we are all asking Sarah Palin to take on as our VP is just a horrific amount of stress, pressure, criticism, hatred, resentment----just unfair and ungrateful negativity to the absolute max. I wish Americans appreciated their leaders more, and treated them and their families better, and gave them the benefit of the doubt sometimes. There's just so little trust. But then, obviously many politicians have broken our hearts enough to ruin our automatically giving them our trust.

Well, it's late and I'm tired. Sorry for the "deep thoughts."

Here's a tired, but heartfelt
GO PALIN!

ftl John said...

"Obama's ground game is key. The campaign has 150 paid people in North Carolina, a state normally out of reach for Democrats, and five offices in the Republican stronghold of Alaska, where McCain currently has none"

I'm not if this is good news or bad news. (FYI, that is taken from a newsweek article, frontpage on msnbc.com, titled "what could break the race open".)

1. Barack realizes that Palin is a threat, and has made an effort to stop her.

2. Mac has no interest in Alaska.

Of course, I could be reading too much into it. Alaska is historically republican, so why invest money into it. BO has money to spare.

Reagardless, with BO picking Biden as his first mate, Mac has to realize the GREAT potential in selecting Sarah. The republicans would scorch earth their way to victory in November given the "competition."

Anonymous said...

Mk. It couldn't be clearer! It is going to be BEIDEN! That alone shows how BO is unfit to lead this nation. He had a big chance but he has squandered it.

Thank God - it was a personal and not a national decision! It is now gonna be Sarah PALIN - mccain is gonna win easy!

And Gov Sarah Palin! We hope you are ready to be that first (republican) female president Reagan once talked about. Just as you did not let Trig down at his greatest hour of need, please do not let this nation down - say YES when Mccain asks - so a new dawn can begin. MK

Ray said...

With Biden picked, it's all up to McCain now.

Come on McCain, don't let us down!

No way! With Beiden, Romney and Pawlenty are out. It will be PALIN. McCain was wise to sit this out. When he anounces Palin, Obama-Beiden ballon will start to deflate at lighting speed!

I do not see women voting for Obama; not after the treatment he has given Hillary.

I can't believe BO has such a poor judgement!!!!!!!!!!

I can. This just goes to show what kind of other decisions a potential President Obama would make.

Hopefully, Sen. McCain gets the message and picks a rock star VP in Sarah Palin.

I'm not one to toot my own horn, but "toot toot".

flapper said...

Don't read too much into where McCain's announcement takes place. OH and PA are key states, and it makes sense that he'd introduce his "new" running mate there to make an impact. He's not worried about carrying Alaska.

It's Pawlenty or Palin on the GOP side, with BO choosing between Biden, Bayh and Kaine.

I predict McCain/Palin vs. Obama/Biden.

Real Ted: I'm now officially as optimistic as you are!

BTW, how cool would it be if the People mag story came out next week? :-)

Looks like a desperate move. Makes him look like a weenie. He looks like a weenie beside McCain. What makes him think Biden won't make him look like a weenie as well. I can't see it helping him, but they probably know something we don't know. I know lately BO has been polling very poorly in the commander in cheif aspect.
Two senators? That seems pretty weird too. How much more Washington can you get?
dr. v

Anonymous said...

Oh, ye-ahhhhh!!!!! Obama is getting desperate, all right! And for good reason: despite a tricky economy, two wars, and a disrespected president, Obama could not pull ahead of McCain. He needs help.

Now that Obama's picked Biden, are Hillary's supporters going to peeved, or WHAT!? Her body language today was tense and her words were terse: "I'm working hard so Obama will win!" (Subliminal: "Man, I hope this guy LOSES!") Biden as VP will help McCain win, if he picks a female VP.

Also, Biden gets in trouble by being condescending and behaving in a very arch and arrogant way to women at times. These behaviors will ruin him in the VP debates, especially if McCain selects a woman for VP.

Regarding Palin, I am sure that the McCain staff must be very concerned about the trooper issue. It has such a slimy feel to it.

Maybe because that issue hasn't been resolved yet, McCain will pick another woman besides Palin----maybe Marsha Blackburn, or Kay Bailey Hutchinson, or even Heather Wilson (an excellent debater).

Any chance they could put a rush on that investigation, so McCain could pick Palin next week in (relative) peace?

FWIW, the 2nd best female choice for McCain would be Sue Myrick. I'm admittedly biased, though. The former Mayor of Charlotte, NC is one of my favorites. :-)

Biden is a good matchup for Palin. What a stark contrast. Biden is like the political version of Will Ferrell's "Anchorman".

A young, charismatic Governor with a "hockey mom" persona will make Biden look like a buffoon.

For those "anon" visitors who are not friendly towards Palin, I would encourage you to visit, www.race42008.com. There are usually 2-6 posts regarding the VP selection each day. Much of the debate is partisan and should provide you with the fireworks you desire.

This blog is a repository of information and discussion for Palin supporters and those who are looking to learn about Governor Sarah Palin.

In advance, I would like to thank you for respecting our wishes.

I know, I know. Why bother? I'd just like this to appear in every thread, for the record. That way, first-time visitors will know what kind of people we're dealing with.

Ironically, it will increase Palin's popularity. ;-)

OK guess we know now that Obama is more worried about the "inexperience" issue than the PUMA issue. Biden is a mistake. I'm wondering why Obama didn't do the Bill Clinton strategy of picking another guy that is similar in age/views/experience so he can say "we're the change ticket." How is he going repeat that "change we can believe in" BS after he picks Joe Biden? The script could not go better for McCain/Palin.

Hey everyone, this is my blog, and while I've been pragmatic on Palin, I believe that the post I made (Veep Picks, Part III) gives you all good vibes.

I'm going for Palin as a great pick, and Pawlenty as an okay pick.

In my opinion, though, anyone but Mitt Romney.

Yomi Mizuhara said...

Oh, and for note, I've also linked you guys. People just need to click on the McCain-Palin emblem, and they'll get transported here.

Now that Obama has chosen, it'll be interesting to see what McCain does. I think he should go visit ANWR with Palin and name her VP there. They could have their first big rally on the 29th, instead of waiting to announce. McCain could dominate the news for almost a week.

Joe Biden doesn't need anyone else to look like a buffoon. He has himself to do that already.

It would be a waste for Sen Mac to announce now. The media is going to fawn all over the dem convention. He's right to wait until right after so he has a good chance of dousing a convention bump. I think it's a good strategy to really run with Biden stuff. I think the choice of Biden makes Obama look weak. This would be a good week for Mac to visit ANWR as I doubt anyone in the MSM would see it as a Palin tap. There is a huge women vote out there. I hope the repubs have sense enough to capitalize on it.

McCain said he would announce on the 29th, and I believe he'll do that and not the failed Obama "Text Message" thing that when *plunk*

ryan trabuco said...

Flapper, I agree! McCain should take that trip up to Alaska the day Hillary speaks at the DNC. The trip will get buried int he headlines, but it'll be good to know if McCain and Gov. Palin can play well off of each other chemistry wise.

If they do, then score!

From everything that I've read in the last few hours about Obama's pick of Biden, the analysis is mixed at best for Obama... clearly a sign of weakness.

Ted said...

What a PR, and substantive, coup. McCain goes with Palin to ANWR during the Dem convention!

Now that would be chutzpah!!!!

THAT would get so much said -- without having to say a word!

With Obama picking Biden, it's almost a foregone conclusion that McCain is picking a woman. I am a Palin supporter and have been for a long time, but in a debate, Biden is an attack dog. Can Palin hang with him? We all know that the debates matter. When Dick Cheny slaughtered John Edwards, it started the downfall of the Kerry campaign. I've seen Gov. Palin and I think that she's a good debater but Biden is a bulldog so McCain may be safer picking Kay Bailey Hutchinson. I noticed that she isn't on the speaking list for the Convention. The second most senior female member of the Senate without a speaking engagement at the convention? I think she's the V.P

Any thoughts?

Bill said...

I agree McCain should go with a woman, and he should show strength in his VP pick unlike the weakness Obama showed in picking a "crutch" like Biden. To me, the only choice in that category is Sarah Palin. Hutchison is almost as old as McCain is and she's pro-choice. Plus having a governor on the ticket would be better than 2 senators. I wrote about it on my blog at:

www.cityonahillpolitics.blogspot.com

Ted said...

Palin's a no-brainer!

McCain will have to plead temporariy insanity not to pick Palin.

Anonymous said...

Hutchison is pro-life for the most part. She is definitely enough pro-life (NARAL 7% rating) for the Republicans and would be a great pick. I think Palin would be better, but Hutchison would probably also put McCain over the top.

He MUST pick a woman!

Anonymous said...

Another major Powerful reason to put Palin on the ticket is because I feel she can get the attention and votes from the young voters who are in the Emergent/Evangelical Movement.
Many not all are in the 20-30's range.An age where having chilren is the quesiton you have. They are asking questions on the abortion issue. If they see Sarah Palin putting "Skin on the Game" with regard to caring For Trig.

Can someone please ban this anonymous "mudflats" clown? It's obvious that this coward is a stooge. This is for people who support Sarah Palin or people who are curious about her. Period. Go crawl back in your rathole you basement blogger. Adam has to do something about these roaches that are on this site.

Anyway, Sarah Palin may actually work perfect for McCain against this ticket. The Obama-Biden ticket has "Change" and "Experience". McCain-Palin would have "Experience" and "Change". I think it would be a good counter-balance. Hutchinson is ok and if he doesn't pick Palin, he should go with her, but she's been in Washington almost as long as he has and she's only 7 years younger than him. No offense, but we need more youth than that. But if not Palin, then Hutchinson. I think we all agree that McCain HAS to pick a woman now.

Dick Morris said that right now Obama is losing women. If McCain puts a woman on his ticket, McCain will start carrying women. If that happens, John will mop the floor with Obama. Can you say "Reagan style blowout"?

To Ray, Wooten's behavior was inappropriate. People get fired for a heck of a lot less than what he did.
I think the Biden pick was pretty smart. He has blue collar appeal which Obama is weak in.
After supporting (and contributing) to HRC's campaign, I had already decided I would support McCain, particularly because of Obama's radical abortion position. But I think there are a lot of "gettable" women out there still that a Palin pick could get for him. And I also think she has a life story that would get some media buzz. The repubs are really hurting for media buzz, still bonkers over "THE ONE". I wouldn't even turn my tv on today because I knew they would be licking his boots all day. No matter who he chose, the MSM was going to say it was brilliant. This is really getting nauseating.

My apology, but I happen to believe that this person who keeps bringing up the mudflats page, and the Wooten issue, knows nothing. That, and I believe he/she/it may be linked with that Syrin character who hates Palin because she defeated that Stephan guy.

The fact of the matter is that Palin has been exonerated from just about everything, Wooten has been fired because of conduct unbecoming an officer (all of the things he supposedly did are true), and all that's left are formalities.

I would like to ask the heads of this blog to find out the IP of whoever the person is, trace it and do what's necessary, and ban their ass.

It does not matter one iota whether the family member was in the room or not when their life was threatened...Wooten threatened to kill the father of a United States governor-he belongs at St. Elizabeth's in a padded cell next to Hinkley-they have four visitation days per month-one day for each of Wooten's wives

He might laugh about having got away with it before but when Palin is nominated VP if he does it again the Secret Service is going to come down on his head like an avalanche

Everything was fine on this blog until these idiots showed up. They are the lowest form of scum alive. You slander Sarah Palin's name by using a fake, weak insignificant case to make yourselves feel better. You can't stand the fact that Sarah Palin has all of this attention and respect and support so you have to tear her down because you're worthless. Get a life. Don't get mad at us supporters because your guy is a loser. It's not our fault that Mitt Romney is as exciting as watching paint dry. It's not our fault that he has the charisma of a turtle, the character of a used car salesman, and the backbone of a smurf. We support Sarah Palin for V.P because we believe in her. If you really believed in your guy, go on his sites and support him instead of spending your pathetic time tearing down a woman who has far more than you could ever hope for.

Not only did Romney support NARAL and more abortions, but he wanted to use OUR tax dollars to pay for those abortions:

In the spring of 2002 Romney completed a Planned Parenthood questionnaire. Signed by Romney and dated April 9, 2002, it contained these responses:

Do you support the substance of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade? YES

Do you support state funding of abortion services through Medicaid for low-income women? YES

Hey Mitt Romney if you want to financially back abortion clinics use your own money-

Not OUR tax dollars!!!!

Boomba said...

Okay, let me put this kindly. If Abortion is the one-trick pony that people are getting hyped up about, don't. It's not gonna help, especially when there are three laws that still need to be challenged or overturned (Roe v. Wade, Doe v. Bolton, Casey v. Planned Parenthood).

Palin cannot overturn those herself. Nor can Romney. So Abortion is a non-starter issue.

What the issue comes up to is who is going to be able to bring in a more aggregate number of votes. Romney will not. Palin will.

And the corruption "scandal" about Palin is over. Palin is vindicated.

Boomba: What makes you think that the corruption investigation of Palin is over?

The fact is, the investigation just recently began.

The article from KTVA is dated 07/28/2008.

The investigation has just recently began and is expected to be completed by November. http://tinyurl.com/6ddg82

It is no where near "over" as Boomba suggested.

I guess the Obama Dems must be running scared -- otherwise they wouldn't be trying to disrupt this blog.

Their attempt to disrail McCain's pick of a competent woman in Gov. Palin, clearly shows that they have no respect for the had-working mothers and daughters of America.

This must be clear indication that McCain must make the pick of Gov. Palin.

The only woman on the shortlist is Palin. It's not helpful for the media to suggest that McCain might pick a VP based on gender, and start listing all the female Republicans. It just makes it easier to marginalize them, and gives the Romney shills a new talking point: "Mitt's a serious candidate!"

McCain needs a charismatic, pro-life Governor who can appeal to swing voters and highlight the domestic energy issue. Palin is the obvious choice, regardless of gender.
