    HAHA, oh man... I just saw this on TV too.

    I`ve been waiting for Tina to do a Palin impression! :`D

    Speaking of, what are Palin`s thoughts on.. uhh... dinosaurs...?

    Palin`s thought on dinosaurs....

    Well, she is very religios, she spent thirty years at a Pentacostal church, which teachs that the world is only 6000 years old.

    So, SHE DOESN`T BELIVE THAT FOSSILS ARE MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD. Instead, she thinks Man walked with Dinosaurs, and fossils are no more than 6000 years old - damn what science says.

    Carbon dating? Geology? Fossils? Screw `em - the Bible says 6000, you calling God a liar?

    SHE IS A CREATIONIST, wants it taught in schools. Or at least, side by side with science. Thats like saying we should also teach the Hindu version of creation, and the Buddist version....religious versions.

    AND SHE HAS ACTUALLY SAID, on ABC, when asked what foreign policy experience she has, "You can see Russia from an Island in Alaska." F**k.

    Goalie, what about the bible? I don`t recall it mentioning dinosaurs in there... you`d think if we walked with them that they`d be a big part.

    Don`t you know? In the Garden of Eden, every fricken animal THAT EVER WAS lived in Harmony.

    Remember Noah? How he stocked up ALL the animals? Dinosaurs were there. They have since all died - No New Species are EVER created - and the bones we find are only 6000 years old.

    The figure of 6000 years is arived at by adding up all the lives along the timeline of the bible - some lived for more than 150 years or more - and Adam and Eve lived 6000 years ago.

    I`m not kidding...

    I`m not following the whole US elections much, but I found it interesting to note that Palin is the only one of the bunch who has ever had any kind of executive power out of any of the candidates, and that none of the candidates have ever had any experience making foreign policy decisions. But that`s not unusual. Almost no president has ever had experience with foreign policy before being elected. This is not unusual.

    Aha, Opiebreath saw the same highlight I did!

    Awesome vid.

    Also interesting to note how much attention (and even more interestingly, positive attention) has been given to Gov. Palin ever since she got chosen as running mate. Did McCain anticipate this, and if yes, is he banking on it?

    Senator Biden is the chairman of the Senate Foriegn Relations committee.
    And yes, McCain hopes that Palin will win it for him, because otherwise, he`s not interesting. But, there is still time, she is pretty ditsy and, frankly, afraid to speak to the press (just watch the ABC interview and judge yourself if she knows dick about foriegn OR domestic policy), which is weird for the person who will take over if McCain, who has had reoccuring cancer, dies.

    Tina Fey mocks the fact that she says the same tired lines over and over. This Sunday, EVERYONE but HER is going onto Sunday news talk shows, A STAPLE IN AMERICAN POLITICS - why won`t she go????

    Most politicians LOVE to get free airtime, but she won`t even talk to the press on her airplane.

    I actually feel a twinge of pity for poor Sarah when Charlie Gibson grills her in his interview. And then I remember that she`s underqualified and overglorified for the position she`s about to (potentially) be voted in for.

    But I was actually really surprised so see her so flustered in the interview. Being a former news anchor herself, I thought she`d know what was coming and have prepared herself a little bit more.

    What really bakes my noodle is that Palin still genuinely believes that global warming is not man-made. I mean, even "Dubya" Bush has by now admitted that it has at least a man-made component.

    Palin love, you know you`re in hard shape when you actually make George W. Bush look like a well-informed progressive...

    The funny thing is, McCain still comes off looking stronger with Palin that Obama does with Biden. I don`t think half of McCain wanted someone else to clearly be their candidate for the presidency, in lieu of that the veep, and were denied that even.

    Palin is great. Finally someone who`s in touch with the everyday American instead of a frat boy.

    I just watched her ABC interview on-line, and the only person who looked bad in my opinion was the interviewer (Charles Gibson). What a dick-head.

    The fact is, ALL the candidates are church going folks. Obama, for example, has been a 20 year member of a local Baptist church (with a racist reverend as well). I guess that makes him a Jesus freak too. Same with Biden. Same with McCain.

    The American media had better be careful. They might be the ones who end up losing the most credibility during this election if they don`t watch out...

    manorrd...congratulations...you have just been successfully pandered to

    the average person wouldn`t make a good president...and to vote for someone simply based on their redneck upbringing is absolutely stupid

    and executive power??? of 9000 people and one of the least populous states in the nation...when her own party said that a person who had even MORE executive experience was unsuited for the job

    and i don`t care if you eat moose or if you`re a muslim...its your ideas that that matter

    and she is against choice for women...wants evolution to be taught in schools...and denies global warming is man-made (McCain DOES believe man has played a part in it)

    so screw you manorrd...this is why i believe furries shouldn`t have the right to vote...

    jeffkodine - rather than your vapid opinion, list ONE thing that I said that was misinformation.

    I`ll list my facts.

    1)She went to a Pentacostal church for 30 years, which teaches "inerrancy," i.e., the Bible is completely, literally correct. Thus, Adam and Eve were real, lived with all the Animals, evolution is false, the earth is 6000 years old. If science says otherwise, its a lie.

    2) She thinks creationism should be taught in schools.

    3)Senator Biden is the Chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee.

    4) Palin repeats the same speech everywhere, over and over. Lipstick, thanks but no thanks, etc.

    5) Palin was absent from the Sunday news shows today. (WHY won`t she talk to the press? Less than 55 days, and we don`t know squat about her views on anything - except she doesn`t know foreign policy.)

    6) Politicians like free air-time.

    There, I made it easy for you - which number is misinformation?

    A vote for Obama/Biden is a vote for Socialism. Plain and simple.

    Socialized medicine will kill our economy; reduce the flexibility within our system to handle stress like we`re handling it now.

    The more of our money that travels through the government`s hands, the more money that goes up in smoke. For nothing.

    If you can`t vote for McCain, then vote against Socialism.

    Right, rather than do ANYTHING to make sure everyone can visit a doctor, let the poor suffer and die, or choose between eating or getting medical care.

    I mean, they are poor, they must be lazy - why else would they not be able to afford health care? Vote Republican!

    And a vote for McCain/Palin is a vote for a return to the dark ages. Plain and simple.

    I`d rather have pseudo-Socialism than be governed by people who are gonna make decisions that effect my life based on magical invisible wizards in the sky that they believe are real because their parents pounded it into their heads as a child.

    I weigh the threat of....whatever you`re fearing (theocracy, overturning of Roe v. Wade) as miniscule compared to the threat of socialized medicine.

    It`s part of the Dem`s platform, and with a majority in both houses, it`s nearly certain to happen.

    Without the economy we have, all the rest is academic.

    The difference is, Palin wants to teach creationism in schools, which is basically corrupting children.

    icantrecall: No, you shut up. :-)

    orionsbelt: Screw you too. :-D

    Clearly, she has conservative values (pro-life, Christian,) which is clearly not everyone`s cup of tea. But to try and imply that she`s some sort of ignorant red neck and a hick just looks desperate.

    And I wonder why governor of Alaska is not good enough. Can someone please list for me the states that you can govern and the states you can`t in order to qualify for VP? New York is ok, and apparently Alaska is not. What about Indiana? Kansas? Where is the dividing line (I don`t accept that there is a dividing line).

    She`s the best thing that`s happened to the American Presidential Race in decades.

    "She`s the best thing that`s happened to the American Presidential Race in decades."

    If you seriously believe this you are incredibly foolish. McCain chose her simply because she was a woman, not because she knows what she`s doing. She has next to no experience in government and wants to mingle her religious beliefs with administration, which is a big no-no in American politics (or is supposed to be...). She doesn`t talk to the press because she knows nothing about running a country. It`s obvious that McCain`s "edgy, progressive" choice has taken you hook, line, and sinker.

    As for the video, Tina makes a great Palin. She really nailed that role.

    I don`t want to make this a religious argument but one thing that bothers me is when people claim that we only believe in God, because somebody told us, Atheists are guilty of the same. ( I for one discovered there is a God because I searched for myself) as for teaching creationism in school, its exactly the same as teaching evolution, its only a belief.
