Imagine how Obama’s pals would act if he actually became president. Use Tony Rezko as a starting point.
From a Dallas mom:
I would call your show but since your show airs at 5pm here in Dallas,TX I am unable to do that. In our house with eight children, we call that hour the “witching hour”!! My two special needs sons are screeching about something. My other child with special needs is getting medicine, my three little girls are runnning in & out of the house for food or needing a referee and my two teenagers are going to work, doing homework or loudly forging through the kitchen for food.My vote is for Trigg Palin. He would teach this nation the most about unconditional love, contentment, pride for our country and respect for one another. Too emotional? Okay my specific reasons to gladly give McCain/Pallin my vote. McCain & Pallin are the only two candidates that know what true courage is. McCain is the one that knows out what is needed in the Healthcare system, how to actually say NO to special interests and and how to allign himself with a true reformer. Governor Pallin is NOT afraid to stand up for what she believes, take on big corruption and bring a child into the world that will be taught, but more than likely , teach us about true courage.
A Reserve of Todds – standing by the man – standing by the woman
Since (as a man) I won’t be able to call in for a while here are some thoughts about the other half of the other half of the ticket-Todd Palin.
Like many other men across America, I share a kinship with the “First Dude”
We love and believe in providential God.
We love our talented, successful , and feminine wives. (Proverbs 31). We encourage them, support them and sometimes make sacrifices in our careers for the sake of theirs. We still “wear the pants” as head of our families.
We love our children-delighting in them and in our role as their “Dad”.
We hunt, fish and enjoy the outdoors. Some of us can even drive a snow machine without hitting anything! (Although I heard Todd has crashed too-so you are in good company.)
We love our country. I was privileged to serve in the US Naval Reserve for 8 years-hence the title of this email. The Reserves and National Guard fill a vital backup and support role for our primary military. Likewise Todd serves as a “Reserve force” for his wife’s service to this nation. I pray that God will guide and protect Todd in his role as husband and father to his family.
The effect that Sarah has had on the women of America will be strongly echoed among their boyfriends & husbands who respect not only Gov. Palin on her own merits but just plain like the man who is “her guy” and will empathize greatly with him for what the liberal elite MSM (et al) are doing to his bride of 20 years.

PS: It struck me when my wife and I watched Sarah’s speech at the convension that Todd is the anti-Bill Clinton (how utterly refreshing)-came to mind again in light of the Hillary/UN/SNL news of late.
Two superb essays on the ongoing collapse of the Annointed One’s campaign.
From last week, Camille Paglia’s meditation on the savaging of Sarah Palin and what it revealed about the democrats and their MSM allies.
From today’s WeeklyStandard.com, Michael Weiss’ “Losing It: Democrats Despair As Obama’s Campaign Falters.”
Desperate Dems are now clinging to market woes as a sort of life preserver, as though a major financial crisis recommends the community organizer who has never spent a day running anything other than his flailing campaign. The defection of one high profile Hillary backer is just another straw in the very strong wind blowing in Obama’s face, but it is significant because of her parting shot –branding Obama as “an elitist,” which isn’t exactly a bulletin so much as a confirmation of what millions had already concluded.
Obama’s woeful running mate hasn’t helped a bit while McCain’s inspired selection of Sarah Palin has simultaneously unbalanced an already Bush-crazed Democratic base while stirring up long dormant sectors of the Reagan coalition as well as newly engaged interest groups. Obama’s hapless rushing from issue to issue with a Streisand fund-raiser thrown in to the mix only reinforces the understanding of Obama as an easily-panicked representative of the self-selected, supremely entitled cultural ruling class anchored in L.A., Manhattan and D.C.
It isn’t much of a base to work with, even when allied with the African American electorate and 95% of every faculty club in America. The prospect of a complete meltdown into McGovern territory now looms. An angry central command is lashing out –see below– and even the MSM blocking tackles are looking dazed.
Obama could still steady the ship, I suppose, though he’s never done it before. He’s never come from behind to win anything. In fact, the only tough contest he has ever won was the primary against Hillary, and he won on points accumulated in the early rounds and because of bizarre rules. There’s plenty of good reasons to panic if you are a democrat.
Unless you are a Hillary Democrat, in which case the prospect of three years of “I told you so” beckons as a sweetener and a prelude to the postponed main event.
Some Democrats are getting very concerned, and they have been making their concerns known to the Obama campaign. “We’re familiar with this,” Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, told The New York Times a few days ago. “And I’m sure between now and Nov. 4 there will be another period of hand-wringing and bed-wetting. It comes with the territory.”
Nice. Sure to increase confidence in the insular Chicago gang that has left Obama addicted not just to smokes but the teleprompter, shackled to empty rhetoric and prone to gaffes. Obama should dominate next week’s debate given his stack of reviews from an adoring MSM, but the bedwetters may not be so sure.
