I started a thread with this title on Aug. 30, one month ago. Unfortunately, one of our members had a meltdown in the middle of it, so I'm not going to drag it back up.

But I think this is a valid question, and one that is being discussed all over the country, and in the media.

Should she remove herself from the race now, or wait until after she humiliates herself on TV Thursday night?

I feel sorry for her. She is obviously in so far over her head it's ridiculous. One can only wonder why she agreed to this. That being said it's not that common for a VP candidate to take themselves out of the race after campaigning - the only other instance I recall would be Eagleton when he ran with McGovern (and unlike Palin - Eagleton at least had some political chops).

Just sayin'....


"cream-of-butt pie"? Never heard that one. Sounds kinda messy.

I think it was Brendan that said the only way it'll happen is if she does it voluntarily.

Sadly, even then, people here and elsewhere will say she was pressured into it by McCain, which would finally show some balls on his part, btw but I think if she does back out, it'll be her and her family's decision.

Wouldn't it be a pisser though if she knocks Biden back on his heels Thursday?

Highly unlikely given the events of the past few weeks though.

Palin is an overly ambitious woman who, I honestly believe, has not idea she's not actually qualified for the position. Therein lay the core of the problem.

Hubris, why not Brunette Ambition???


Why not sturdy Alaskan behavior?


Palin can skin a moose, so why not Joe Biden???

Because that could perceived as offensive to brunettes and Alaskans.

We've already had 8 years of the same problem....Two guys that don't have a clue that they we're never qualified to do the big job in the first place...

She is the first VP candidate (well her people) to deny an interview to NPR. NPR for God's sake.

That's as surprising as a Disney porn film.
