During Sarah Palin's acceptance speech when nominated by John McCain for Vice President, McCain wouldn't leave Palin alone on stage. Rather than give her the momentary limelight, McCain peered over her shoulder and read her speech alongside her. He was visibly nervous and has remained so ever since.
Other than Wednesday at the RNC when Palin finally appeared solo, the image of McCain hovering authoritatively over her is the constant at every appearance. McCain's public subjugation of Palin, and her public acceptance of it, sets male-female advancement back decades. Were Palin truly a trusted and powerful woman she'd request and be granted autonomy on stage, and reject McCain's Taliban-like presence. All that's missing is her burka. Honestly, what strong woman tolerates a man hovering over her in the presence of thousands? If she's really VP worthy, McCain should leave her alone. Here are 3 short videos evidencing McCain's "tight-leash" on Palin. The first is Palin's acceptance of the nomination for VP:

The next clip is from Friday, September 5th in Cedarburg, Wisconsin - the day after McCain's RNC acceptance address. Witness McCain's stern father stance. In contrast, Joe Biden waa immediately able to go out on his own.

Known and very popular cialis coupon which gives all the chance to receive a discount for a preparation which has to be available and exactly cialis coupons has been found in the distant room of this big house about which wood-grouses in the houses tell.

And then there was this Saturday, September 6th appearance in Colorado Springs, CO. McCain fidgets and reads nervously over Palin's shoulder. He would let her lead the country but he's afraid to let her read. Is this emblematic of his misogyny, his lack of faith in her - or both?

I'm usually a temperate writer. I'm opinionated - but factual. I don't like to rant. When angry, I moderate my message in service to the truth. That's as it should be. BUT NOW I'M ANGRY! I'm angry that John Sidney McCain claims he puts COUNTRY FIRST - but in the ruse that is Sarah Palin, he puts his country LAST. His goal is to win at all costs. McCain chose HATE TALK over STRAIGHT TALK and a band of Bushes to promote his cause. John Sidney McCain, who claims love of nation beyond ALL ELSE, has chosen a running mate he won't let out of his sight - let alone address the press. There is NO 60 day learning curve for President, Mr. McCain!


Watch as CNN's Mary Snow explains to colleague Fredericka Whitfield that the McCain campaign decided NOT to send Palin on the campaign trail alone: I've watched the Bush/McCain clan destroy this country - MY country - under the guise of protecting it. I've seen rampant militarism bankrupt every sector of this nation - from its tangible infrastructure to its intangible soul. "ENOUGH!!" On August 28th I sat in Invesco Stadium in Denver. I listened to Barack Obama's acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. Eight and a half minutes into the speech, Barack Obama hit a tone that Democrats have been afraid of. Obama raised his voice with volume and conviction and shouted "ENOUGH!!" Witness for yourselves:

The stadium went wild! That power - that conviction - is long overdo. ENOUGH must be our clarion call. I can't say whether Barack Obama will recover from his current centrism to become The People's leader if elected! Regardless, those who love this nation long ago adopted the internal and external mantra of "ENOUGH!!" They've shouted it since 2000 and the stealing of the election. They've shouted it since 2003 and the invasion of Iraq. They shouted it through the streets of Denver, the streets of Minneapolis-St. Paul and into the Republican Convention. Witness CODEPINK's Jodie Evans opposing Palin at the RNC. No misogynist or false leader could keep Evans on a leash:

Jodie Evans at RNC


ENOUGH recklessness! ENOUGH war! ENOUGH raping this nation's resources! ENOUGH of the divide between rich and poor! ENOUGH corporatism, militarism and greed! ENOUGH shredding the Constitution! ENOUGH Palin and McCain!!!! "ENOUGH!!"

I am not an Obama fan but now you say he is spreading lies about you. Everything here is a lie? You tell us.

Possibly charged rape kits to victims, does not believe in evolution, religion is questionable, encourages shooting bears and wolves from lowing flying planes, troopergate, no abortions for rape or incest, supported the bridge to no where before she opposed it. Has a pregnant teenager, her only experiences with Foreign Relations is the fact she can see Russia from AL, Questioned a librarian about book banning and later the librarian was fired. Does not believe in Global Warming, and left her city in debt as Mayor.

Cannot stand the heat - better get out of the kitchen.

McCain wasn't thinking with his head when he chose Palin
How can we as the American people look up to and respect someone like Sarah Palin who has no respect for either wildlife or the environment but instead seems to only care about oil and money.

We've had 2 self-centered, indifferent and callous men in the White House and look where our country is now!

We need a leader with not only experience but also compassion and concern for our world and all its inhabitants. That's the only way to go!

silly girl
The more this chic shrieks out like a manic street protester and warmly welcome the likes of Ahmadinejad, the more she helps to convert voters to McCain/Palin. You are just another freakish Obamaton who looks very foolish.
