>Who Cares About The Candidates’ Health?

>Dr. Lawrence Altman wrote another op-ed piece that the NY Times printed. But as I pointed out, it had nothing to do with his narrow-minded opinion that none of the four candidates provided adequate (for him) medical records, and everything to do with Altman’s liberal stands. Actually, McCain did provide 12 pages from his doctors, but little can satisfy a liberal doctor.

Here’s what I said in my comments to this silly, nonessential Times article.

“Dr. Altman got his article past the Times review board based on its political content, not the medical part. I really don’t care about the health of all four candidates. If you believed in our Constitution you wouldn’t either. Especially you libs including the Times who will see your beloved incompetent Nancy Pelosi become president if two candidates from either party die or become incapacitated in office. I believe I would take her brand of liberalism over Obama’s socialism any day.”

The following I added for this blog: “But of course Pelosi, too, is a million light years away from what the American want and deserve. Her head is never screwed on properly and she grasps very little already without being declared incompetent by Dr. Altman. Take care of that, Doctor, next time you see her.”

>McCain-Palin Ticket More Lincolnesque Than Demo Senators Who Come Off Looking Like Two Worn Out Senators


Palin comes out throwing punches

Governor Palin may lose the foreign relations debate with her counterpart Senator Biden, but she wins hands down in the hearts of the average American.

Like Abraham Lincoln, she calls a spade a spade. It’s Mr. Smith goes to Washington, only with a female twist. She slammed Obama for “saying one thing in Scranton and another in San Francisco,” argued that he had written two memoirs but never authored a major piece of legislation and asked what he would do “when those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot,” a reference to the stage where Obama gave his acceptance speech last week.

Thousands of delegates at a party conference roared their approval at Palin’s speech, bursting into chants of “Sarah! Sarah!” and “Zero! Zero,” the amount of executive experience Republicans say Obama has accumulated.

Sarah Palin touts her executive experience
The governor says she knows how to be a leader.

September 5, 2008

“Here is something you might not have thought about much lately, but by the time Nov. 4 rolls around, trust us, you will know it better than you know your own mother: Governors make decisions. They are chief executives. They veto stuff. They never vote ‘present.’ “

Sarah Palin took a few minutes during a luncheon for the Republican Governors Assn. last Thursday to press the argument that her 21 months as Alaska’s governor have given her a leg up on her opponent, or rather, her ticket mate’s opponent.

She did not mention Sen. Barack Obama by name, but there was no question whom she meant when she said, “There is a big difference between the legislative and executive branch in our experience. . . . We are expected to lead and take action and not vote just ‘present.’ ” (When Obama was in the Illinois Legislature, not getting any executive experience, he voted “present” rather than “yea” or “nay” more than 100 times.)
