Quoth the Huckster:

"[Sarah Palin] got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States."

Hmmm... maybe this is a case of "divine" math:

Palin, 1996 Wasilla mayor's race, total votes: 651
Palin, 1999 Wasilla mayor's race, total votes: 909

Biden, 2008 Democratic primaries, total votes: 79,754

Perhaps he meant by percentage? :)

Huckabee is all talk. And it is funny to watch Republicans have to make stuff up to sell Palin.

And contradict themselves (http://www.comedycentral.com/videos/index.jhtml?videoId=184086)...:D

i watched the Palin day of the Convention at my mom's house on PBS (it was on in the background). i liked Giulani's speech. Mr. Frenzy wanted to watch the convention, but he was gaming, so he TiVo'd it. Off of Fox News.

Ho. Lee. Crap!

i couldn't believe i was watching the same thing, the coverage was so radically different. This was my first experience with Faux News, and DAMN how can any of them keep a straight face when they claim impartial journalism?!?

The only place that seems to be running actual "balanced" anything during the campaign is CSpan, and that is because there is basically no commentary, they are just showing the speeches for both sides and leaving it pretty much at that.

I'm liking CSpan more and more... now if only they could capture footage of some fistfights in Congress or something!

Not only that, but Huckabee? Why is anyone even listening to him anymore about anything?

Isn't he a creationist? Maybe they listen because they want their own pet dionsaur to ride. :rolleyes:

Then they need to read the Dresden Chronicles. Not only did he ride a Tyrannusaurus Rex... it was a Zombie.

Zombie Tyrannasaurus Rexi are satanic and any mention of them in print should be banned and burned post haste.

I can't help it. Her story is so compelling. She is me.
