When Sarah Palin smiles, God kills a dog

I laughed like mad when I read that Melanie is joining this group in Facebook. HAHAAHAHHAHAHA. Yahoo! News
Palin says Obama running against Bush, not McCain
By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press Writer NEW YORK - Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Tuesday said Barack Obama is running as though his opponent is President Bush instead of John McCain. She called it a strategy that's "wearing pretty thin." Addressing several hundred supporters at a fundraiser, the Alaska governor said voters know McCain as a political maverick and war hero and that Obama is trying too hard to link the Arizona senator to the unpopular GOP president. "Our opponents spend so much time pretending they are running against the current president. I think it's wearing pretty thin," Palin said, without mentioning Bush's name. "The American people are really waking up and saying no, the status quo is not one of the boxes to check." She added, "That's what our opponents are afraid of. That more and more Americans are remembering who John McCain is." Palin and McCain appeared with their spouses at the event for the Republican Victory Fund, where guests paid as much as $28,500 to support the presidential ticket and other GOP candidates. The fundraiser was expected to net at least $8 million for the party. McCain also has taken steps to distance himself from Bush in recent days. The Arizona senator debuted a new stump speech this week in which he pledged to fix the economy, saying "we cannot spend the next four years as we have spent much of the last eight, waiting for our luck to change." Palin's reference to Bush wasn't McCain's only reminder of the current president's legacy. As the candidate left his midtown Manhattan hotel to travel to the fundraiser, the red carpet premiere of "W," Oliver Stone's new film critical of Bush and his policies, was under way across the street. National and battleground state polls show Obama opening a clear lead over McCain, particularly since the financial meltdown took hold in mid-September. Mrs. Palin is indeed beautiful. And she looks smart with those speeches. Impressive. Well, I read in the recent news that she has a record of abusing her power as Alaska Governor. Here are the examples written on Yahoo! News:
Some examples:
_She pummeled opponents for giving oil companies and other businesses too much control of state government. Yet she appointed the founder of an engineering firm that received $6.8 million in state business as head of the transportation department. _She has accepted dozens of gifts worth tens of thousands of dollars since taking office, including two free trips last year that she failed to report on disclosure forms, despite criticizing state legislators for the gifts they take. _She is under another investigation, accused of misusing her office to campaign against a voter referendum calling for tighter mining regulations. Her husband, Todd, has accepted free trips from a mining company to look at their proposed new site. _Another ethics complaint, unresolved, accuses her staff of finding a state job for a friend and campaign contributor.
I read that they don't like Mrs Palin because she's too pretty and too smart ^________^ Well, I think the sexiest part of a human body is brain! So, I do like smart guys =)
