Facts are not as important as style.Sarah Palin proved that a wink and being for good ol' Joe Sixpack is what style is all about. Remember the grand old saying? "Never go with the facts,go with the legend". Legend in this case is style.

George Bush all over again. I think Joe Sixpack wised up to it when he lost his job and his pension.

For a couple of weeks now, McCain has been getting twice as much airtime on the news as Obama.

But it makes sense, since McCain seems to have twice as many positions on the issues as Obama does -- one before lunch, and another after lunch.

The syndicated piece in today's Oregonian by Marie Cocco says it all about McCain/Palin.

Palin's repetitive jabs at "greedy Wall St." means that the Republicans have lost out to the Democrats. While Joe six-pack might think it a pejorative term, Wall St. power brokers think "greedy" is a compliment. The Dems bent over backwards in shovelling taxpayer money to Wall St. and they, not the Republicans, have been getting the large donations in return. Pelosi and Frank sold out. I've never voted for a Republican in any race ever (that's thirty years worth of votes) but I'll probably vote for Gordon Smith as an f-you to the Dems.

NY Times columnist Frank Rich opines that McCain lost the VP debate in a column titled:

"Pitbull Palin Mauls McCain"

dated October 5, 2008.

Reminds me of a quip someone made at the Republican National Convention right after Palin's speech: "When is she going to drop McCain from the ticket?"
