    Sarah can't afford a slip of the tongue like that and the backpedalling is not going to work this time because that sound bite is the kiss of death for those on the fence about her. I agree with Barbara Bush-she should go back to Alaska before she hands Obama a second term. She's good at raising awareness and pleasing a crowd but the Republicans should look for someone else.

    That picture is so obviously poorly photoshopped but I'll give her she is attractive-she is a politician and doesn't have to look like a 20 something Dallas cheerleader or Victoria Secret model that obviously so many men base their good looks on, but she still is not presidential material.

    i want her to keep doing what she is doing - rallying people. i really dont think she would get throiugh the primary process.

    but as it is, she gets a really raw deal from the media and this is proof of that.

    Strangely enough, I disagree...I think she looks too made up, most of the time..but hey, I'm not your typical 'girly girl'. LOL

    you can put the pom poms down now, regards.

    I agree,
    on both counts.

    I was in court (as a juror) not too long ago, and the defense atty (public defender, I am sure) was giving his pre jury selection 'juror' speech..He said 'It is up to you, as the jury, to find the defendent guilty, unless proven otherwise'. Pretty funny and it was hard not to laugh, we all knew what he meant. LOL

    Out of curiosity, Juli, how did the state of Alaska vote to oust a RINO in the primaries, and then write her back in at the general election? Were the voters duped into voting for Miller in the first place? Or were they duped into thinking he would provide the same amount of pork that Markowski does, and stand by Obama like she does?

    Whatever happened to the old attitude Alaskans used to exude...rugged indiviualism etc. Has the majority gotten on the dole? Do you see your state sliding towards more liberal/socialistic views by the inhabitants? Has there been a large influx of liberals, like in the state of Montana?

    Like I say, just curious.

    cant speak for Montana but I would guess its the same thing that is happening in Idaho where they have gotten an influx of left coast Calif libs with a pocketful of cash and start buying up property in resort places like Cour d Alene,Sun Valley or the Ted Turners that go to Montana and buy huge ranches and along with that start flexing their political influence by donating to local politics...even though the long time residents of the state are conservative the carpetbaggers will eventually infiltrate and become a factor almost overnight

    and the problem with that is??? I've been taught here on POTUS that America is about succeeding in a capitalistic society, then you and your money can do what you want.
    Anything less is class warfare, and we can't have that.

    If you want to know the truth... Murkowski won because of MONEY, Miller lost because of TRUST (or lack thereof) ... Miller made a huge mistake by disregarding the effect of witholding pertinent information which he knew would affect voters negatively. Honestly, he used to be the magistrate here in Tok and I have heard some not so nice stories about him from people who knew/dealt with him personally....Pretty much it boils down to the fact that he is a lawyer, and while he 'says' the right things, from a conservative side, there are many here who knew him personally that didn't/don't buy his 'line'.....Miller essentially shot himself in the foot when he didn't disclose ALL the skeletons in his closet at the very beginning of the race...I had a hard time voting for him, but I did.

    On the other hand, you have Murkowski, who has/had the money and backing of many (if not all) Native Alaskan villages, councils, tribal gov't, and big corporations, etc - LOTS of money there...The money she brings to rural alaskans (read 'native villages') is very important to them, as is the pork barrel money she has brought in other ways.... That and she did draw a lot of blue dog dems, I think. I'm talking Dems that didn't know much about McAdams, who was essentially a 'new face' in statewide (vs SE AK) politics. Murkowski swung a good percentage if independents and democrats in her favor... I just couldn't bring myself to vote for her because I think she got a 'shoe in' by her daddy, and that's not the right way to do things. I probably should have voted for the Libertarian. LOL

    As the state grows - esp in populated areas, we are seeing more and more dependency on the gov't dole. Unfortunately this means more liberal mindset.
