"But Cindy McCain, for one, points out that the governor, Palin, does in fact have some national-security experience [Video: Cindy McCain pointing out that Alaska is close to Russia]. Right, she's so close she can walk right up there and watch them like a neighborhood-watch captain or something." --Jimmy Kimmel

I Don't Trust People Who Use God and War In The Same Sentence
The war in Iraq is part of
God’s plan, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said in June in a speech at her former
Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate whose son will deploy to Iraq in a few weeks, told the students that “our national leaders, are sending [the troops] out on a task that is from God.”
Building a natural-gas pipeline is also part of God’s will...

Subject: Sarah Palin for VP
I 'm glad you didn't blog about Sarah Palins baby not being hers but her daughters. Sounds tinfoil hat stuff. Daily Kos and other Dem sites have been salivating over it. What do you think of Palin as McCains VP pick? This is the most interesting election!
Thanks for what you do. $ in the mail.
Thanks for writing Ben and thanks for your support!!
I do love watching the Old Guard Republicans horrified at McCains pick, such as David Gergen. lol
As far as Sarah Palin's baby -- People magazine ran a birth announcement on the day her son was born saying the baby was born at Mat-Su Regional Medical Center. But Mat-Su Regional Medical Center website shows no mention of Trig Palin, the Governor's son being born there. So I can see why the rumors started. It's silly to headline it in any news organization IMHO.
Not only were Dem web sites blogging about it but CNN, MSNBC and FOX were all babbling about the bloggers.
McCain has energized his party by partnering with Palin. I wonder if McCain would have picked Palin if Obama had picked Hillary?
The bottom line is Obama had the limelight taken away from him six days ago and hasn't had it back since. I wonder how and when he will get it back?

Dem vs GOP Conventions
The survey found that around 21.5 million people watched the Republican gathering unfold Tuesday night. That's 4.3 million fewer people than the 26 million viewers who tuned in last week for Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention....Like Day 2 in Denver, where more women than men tuned in to watch Hillary Clinton deliver her endorsement of Barack Obama, more women (11.2 million) than men (9.5 million) watched the GOP convention last night.

the amazing part: back in 1984, Sarah Palin actually came second in the Miss
Alaska beauty pageant. Now she could be vice president. You know what that
means? For the first time in history, a beauty pageant contestant might actually
bring about world peace. They've talked about it for years; here's one that
could do it!" --Jay Leno

Back when Stanford Professor
Brent Constantz was 27, he created a high-tech cement that revolutionized bone
fracture repair in hospitals worldwide. People who might have died from the
complications of breaking their hips lived. Fractured wrists became good as new.
Now, 22 years later, he wants to repair the world.
Constantz says he has invented a green cement that could eliminate the huge amounts of carbon dioxide spewed into the atmosphere by manufacturers of the everyday cement used in concrete for buildings, roadways and bridges.
