Lottery Post Journal

In response to Pacattack05's blog

Pacattack05 posted a video of Governor Palin that showed her when she was starting her former career as a broadcast journalist.

The implied message is, "She is nothing, has no experience, and is not qualified to be VP."

Another implication certainly must be that Obama is highly qualified, since it would not make much sense to attack Governor Palin in that manner unless the person posting the video felt they were standing on solid footing.

Here is a reality check for you.

Governor Palin is not only a highly-qualified candidate for VP, but has better credentials than the presidential candidate on the other side.

If you would like to watch a more realistic portrayal of Governor Palin, here is one that sums it up quite nicely:


  • I posted that video for pure observation only. Not to start anything. I thought nothing less of her because she was in the news business. That's like saying Ronald Reagan was an actor, so how can he run the

  • I agree with your sentiments here, and I also thought of Reagan, a very good comparison to her. But the video (and subsequent comments posted to your blog) are akin to the Obama "lipstick on a pig" comments yesterday. Another one of his non-stop negative comments designed to attack indirectly, so he can *claim* innocence.

    Liberals started posting that newscast because they thought it made her look bad, not out of innocent curiosity.

    I accept your comment at face value, however, and I apologize to you Pacattack if I judged you too harshly.

  • Not a problem Todd. I can see how a video like that can make the poster look like he or she has an agenda. I was merely caught in the

  • Teddy Roosevelt had essentially the same credentials, experience, outlook, and age as Gov. Sarah Palin when he became President.

  • Call me the eternal curmudgeon but I have to disagree. This November, I plan to leave the President block "blank" on my ballot. Neither Obama/Biden nor McCain/Palin excite me in the least ... and I've never EVER voted for "the lesser of two evils." I'm 58 now and, needless to day, a lot of Presidential blocks were left blank over the years ... not just this time around. However, I do remember once casting a "protest" vote for Lyndon LaRouche (grin) because he was the only candidate talking about the viability of fusion power (not the "cold" kind but the kind of fusion being studied at M.I.T. and other academic institutions).

    It saddens me when I see where our country is going ... and saddens me even more that I feel so out of sync with the rest of the electorate. But, like it or not, that's the way it is.

  • Just a brief P.S. regarding Obama's "lipstick on a pig" comment. I didn't find it any more distressing than the "lipstick on a pig" comment made earlier in this campaign by McCain - in reference to Clinton plan for universal health care. The rancor coming out in this campaign, on BOTH sides, is very disappointing.

  • Sarah Palin: "You know what they say the difference is between a hockey mom and a pit bull?


    If you substitute the words "football, baseball, basketball, or soccer" for "hockey" and if "they" means coaches, referees, and umpires, I can certainly relate to her comment. So if someone asked me if I would be uncomfortable if one of these moms became President of the United States, I would answer "no".

    However, this doesn't mean that I believe all sports moms, dads, grandmas, or grandpas whether they wear lipstick or not are qualified to be President of the United States. Hopefully this hockey mom, those around her, and her supporters will prove she is qualified by not being so thin skinned to believe that any use of the words "lipstick", "hockey mom", "pit bull" or even "difference" are indirect personal attacks on her.

  • I don't see anything about Sarah Palin that is thin-skinned in the least. She is a tough Alaskan. I think people will see just how tough she is when she debates plagiarizin' Joe Biden in a few weeks.

    I don't think she has said anything publicly about Obama's gaffe, so I do not see how one could draw any opinion at all about her as it relates to the pig comment.

    By Todd, at 6:10 PM

  • I included "those around her" and "supporters" and they were the ones demanding an apology not her.
