THRILLED isn't QUITE my word, but it's close!!

HURRAH!!!! I'm collecting information on her at my blog; come help us learn about Palin..got anything new, please share it, nicks!! Thanks!

Nikki said...

Z, sounds great! WOOHOO! I will check your blog for info too! :)N

Sandi said...

So it's bad for Obama to be "inexperienced" but it's okay for a woman with 2 years in semi-major politics to be a heart beat away from presidency? Gee, ya think he's pandering to the Hilary vote?? Now we have the old wrinkled guy and you have the inexperienced person. The whole thing is becoming "my toys are bigger than your toys." But, the good news is that none of them is Dubya - well except for McCain.

Nikki said...

Sandi, of course its ok for Sarah Palin to be inexperienced she's on my side. I don't deny being partisan! And its not pandering now the verbage changes to "reaching out" to women voters! HA! I will miss Dubya. :)N

Sorry for the lack of political views on my part, but I don't know if you even read your comments on your other baby blog (who is being neglected), so I will leave my comment on here=). WE ARE HOME!! HALLEFRICKINLUJAH! I can't believe you guys are moving again. Very exciting. We want to come see you and hear all about it. We'll call you soon!

She looks a little like a young Nancy Pelosi.

Ducky's here said...

Well, the whole deal with the Dems was that the party was supposed to splinter. Didn't happen.

Now you have Grandpa Depends stringing along a bunch of party members and spitting in the face of women like Kay Bailey Hutchinson who have carried water and paid their party dues. I'd say the R's have the unity problem.

Karen said...

It's a wonderful choice, Nikki. It's very exciting.

Yay! I can't wait for her to be the ruler of the free world when the old man croaks. She can share some of the cheerios from the bottom of her purse with foreign dignitaries!

What is the purpose of this blog (rant) anyway? You could save everyone time by just saying that you agree with 100% of what the republican party does. No thinking required.

Anonymous said...

Nikki may agree 100% republican but I think she does an awesome job backing up her claims. She never just says I support Republicans ... end of story, she tells us why. Everyone has a right to their opinion whether you agree or disagree. If you have followed her blog, she was not 100% John McCain from the get go but understands that her values and issues would not be served well with the other candidate. You have to choose so choose which candidate best supports your ideals. Unless you are brainless and choose not to vote.

WomanHonorThyself said...

yup yup the ticket got a whole lot better and yay for Conservatives finally!

Nikki said...

K and A...we can't wait to see you guys! We are homeless at the moment but hopefully will have something wrapped up soon...oi. can't wait to hang out! :)N

Ducky, I am guessing you have a thing for Pelosi? The dems don't need to splinter they just need to be themselves and they will self destruct! :)N

Karen, here here! :)N

anonymous #1, going with the McCain is gonna die any moment is a good one! Also the cheerios comment couldn't be more sexist...I am not 100% republican I have the "you're a liberal comments to prove it". But feel free to "rant" or whatever you want on my blog...:)N

anonymous #2 thanks for the sticking up! I appreciate the comment and for the reading...:)N

WHT...its a great day! and from dem reaction it really is a great move! :)N

Chatterness said...

Who the hell is this broad who will be our Prez if the old man croaks? CAN YOU SAY, "SCARY?"

Anonymous said...

The average American male lives to 72 years of age. Questioning McCain's mortality is not unreasonable.

Hockey mom leading the free world? Heck, why not my mom?

DB said...

McCain put me solidly in Obama's camp with this pick.

Nikki said...

Chatterness she is THE most popular Governor in the union. She will do great and McCain is not going to croak. :)N

anonymous, I believe genetics factor and McCains mom is 90+. Hey I thought experience didn't matter? :)N

DB, quit being a baby and stop voting on stupid social issues that are never gonna change. I can say that because I am much older than you. :)N

Chuck said...

I've been hearing this argument all day about her being ineperienced and being "a heartbeat away from the presidency", these same idiots though are ok with Obama being president with less experience. I want Obama to keep making that argument, it's a loser for him.

Also, this whole thing about libtards ending every argument they can't win with "yea but George Bush..." is played out. They sound like an idiot every time they trot that old stand-by out.

Nikki said...

Chuck, the other thing that bothers me is the McCain being on deaths door...also the man of the people act just got a little stronger on our side of the aisle. Common folk are the Palins...are they saying common folk should NOT be in the WH and only Harvard mouths doing the bidding for them middle class peeps? bastards. great comment. :)N

DB said...

Oh, Nikki. It's more than just the social issues. Everything I couldn't stand about Obama has been trumped by Palin. In fact, I LOVE the fact McCain picked her.

Steve Harkonnen said...

Good choice. Maybe it's going to save McCain.

Too bad it's not the other way around. She would make a fine president; she doesn't look as if she's ready to kick the bucket soon OR grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.

I'm hoping she's president as early as January.

Nikki said...

DB, there is still time for me to work on the error of your ways. I have my ways of making you come to the dark side...:)N

Khaki Elephant said...

Nikki, you know how I feel about this pick as I've been hoping for it (though I didn't think McCain would ever make the call). I'm ecstatic.

And as for Sandi and DB's complaints the she is inexperienced like Obama, that is not exactly the case. So she has only been the governor of Alaska for 2 years, that's 2 more years of experience in an excutive branch than Obama has had in his entire career. And by the time Obama first went to the Illinois state senate, she had already spent some years as a mayor (another position in the executive branch of government). And while Obama has spent around 140 days as a freshman senator making a few votes here and there, Palin was governing the largest land mass in the country (with the nation's richest oil reserves) and making dozens, perhaps hundreds, of EXECUTIVE decisions every day. On top of that, Palin also served as a leader in the private sector . . .yet another gapping whole in Obama's resume.

The bottom line is that McCain picked a young running mate for the bottom of the ticket who has more experience in decision-making leadership positions than the Dems put at the top of their ticket! It's quite amazing when you think about the fact that so many people are actually going to vote for Obama.

Of course, Obama did pick an experienced guy to run with him (though, again, no experience in the executive branch). In fact, how old was Obama when Biden first joined the senate? 10? 11? So much for change and "the messiah" turning away from Wahington insiders.

Oh, and in case somebody wants to claim that McCain never served in a decision-making leadership position, call me crazy, but I think his service as a naval officer in a time of war may qualify him.

DB said...

Hey, if all this helps people sleep at night, all the power to her. Is she ready to be the President? I usually leave give the Republicans the benefit of the doubt on picking the "ready" or better leaders (as evident by the slopping choice of Obama, Edwards, etc), but this one is irresponsible when McCain had better female choices with executive experience and a clue about national politics...and world affairs. This says a lot about McCain in my opinion. I am going to love the next few months of spin coming from Republicans. I am sure she will become the messiah to the right that they have been looking for.

DD2 aka Debonair Dude said...

I'm not just happy about voting for Sarah Palin because she is a woman. And I'm not not just happy about voting for Sarah Palin just because she is a Republican.

I'm happy about voting for Sarah Palin because she is one of the first genuine, 100% American, hardworking, intelligent and real politician I get the privilege of casting a vote for. Thank you, John McCain.

Anonymous said...

Thanks McCain, now I have two awful choices. I guess I'll just write Ron Paul in this time.

Dan said...

I was waiting to see who McCain picked to decide whether or not I would vote. So now I'll be voting. I predict that McCain's base, will now put him over the top, and in 2012 no matter which party wins the election there will be a woman president.

Palin is the only excutive branch politican on the ticket. Senators are reps from states. They come to Washington to compromise and bring home the bacon. The longer they stay; the more experience they have; the better they are at just that. Govonors must pocess leadership skills. I'd much rather have a two year govenor as president, than a two year senator, given like worldviews. Perhaps the nation will be able to endure four years of a semi-conservative senator, doing as president what senators do as senators.

Kevin said...

I love Gov. Palin and I'd vote for her in heartbeat. Too bad about her running mate. I still wouldn't vote for McCain with Medea Benjamin's ballot.

Khaki Elephant said...

And I guess you could also say she's the only Governor of a state that shares a border with Russia. I think dd2 hit the real benefit that Palin brings to the ticket, most Americans will not see her as a politician or a self-styled messiah, they will see her as genuine and a hardworking American.

Mad Hatter said...

I was not going to vote, but after this choice Im leaning to vote McCain. Good choice. Palin is a great choice for him.

GrEaT sAtAn'S gIrLfRiEnD said...

Alaska bordrs two diff foreign nations and Sarah has more Executive expertise than Senators Obama, Biden and McCain - combined.

Sally said...

Obama is from Hawaii and that is in the middle of the ocean, so he has the most international experience.

Daughter is 16 and pregnant? With mono? Maybe she should stay home and raise her family. So much for family values.

How can you tell when liberals are scared? When their vicious, unfounded hate attacks begin!

Looks every day more like McCain made the right pick.

Anonymous said...

Unfounded? She has said both. Look it up. Oh never mind, just wait and see what your party tells you to think.

DB said...

The 17-year-old unmarried daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

This is how you drive the pro-life point home...

Khaki, you may be totally in love with this lady, but you have to admit McCain is certainly pushing the envelope.

Nikki said...

DB, do you really think driving home the pro-life commitment to the religious right is the point of this...honestly? If so, I think there is no reason to discuss it because the irrational aliens have taken over. :)N

DB said...

Ouch, burn...that was called a joke. Let's not be so sensitive, huh? Raise your Palin flags high!

Nikki said...

DB, no sensitivity...just crackin back! mwah! :)N

Khaki Elephant said...

Ah, I took the anonymous post as a reference to the smear that Palin's youngest son is actually Bristol's and that she had missed school faking mono while she gave birth. Yes, she is pregnant now. So what's the new charge against Palin, hypocricy or being a poor mother? Oh, wait, Alan Colmes already made the latter charge.

DB, any pick outside of Pawlenty would have been pushing the envelop. Romney is Morman, Huckabee was a minister . . . etc, etc. Outside of my love, I hold true to what I said before this announcement: Sarah Palin is the best choice for V.P.
