McCain ON McCain:

I just watched The RNC Palin Speech in it's entirety.

MY GOD she has an annoying voice. So shrill, so nasal; and that accent? Very yankee doodle.
The way that she pronounces the word chief made me want to vomit.
Her speaking ability is uncomarably
Her son's name is Track. Do I really wany a president (oops, I mean Vice President; sorry, slip) that would name her son TRACK? Why not name him Trigg, or Willow or Bristol or... Wait. She did. GOD what is wrong with this person?
Her senseless rantng about her family was quite annoying, too.

Overall, I guess I have to disagree with every conversative token pundent and say that she seems weak, and that I think Biden will eat her alive in the debate.

I was at work last night, so I didn't get to hear McCain's speech. I read the transcript, and thought "hey, that seemed pretty decent". But then on the way home, I heard some of it.

It was much better reading it than it was hearing it. He's not good with the teleprompter, that's for sure. And I don't like his voice, either.

SHE didn't bother me so much. I'm pretty impressed with her as a mother, anyway. She seems very put-together, something I certainly haven't been able to even GRASP in my year as a mother of two. I can't fathom it with five...

McCain doesn't know how to talk, period. He has to have help from aides all the time, regardless of teleprompter-status. I think he's suffering the beginning stages of dementia, too.

I do not think McCain can communicate for us, as a country. I don't believe he could be a president of diplomacy. I believe in diplomacy as a means of avoiding war and such, and I believe in war as a last option only. An ability to properly communicate, especially under pressure, is paramount to the job. In fact, it's probably the number one thing I want in a president. Because it matters more than anything else. He is the person the American people will look to for strength and accountability. Also, with foreign relations, communication is key. Different cultures respond differently to different lines of communication. There had to be an understanding of cultural dynamics and how to interact with different people of different places at all times. There has to be a level of competence in this department. McCain straight doesn't have it. He needs too much help. And by the second year, he probably wouldn't just need help speaking; he'd probably need his diaper changed.

He'll also be the oldest president to ever enter his first term. He may die in his first term, leaving her to command the ship. I personally don't believe that is a great idea. I don't think she's READY to be president, and I doubt she ever will be. Also, America might not be sexist, but the rest of the world is and the Muslim extremist countries wouldn't respond to a woman as a diplomat. I also doubt her communication skills, but it's probably just because her voice makes me want to kill myself.

Palin, otherwise known as the bitch from Alaska, or Gidget, is revolting tome. Not as bad as McCain, but bad...
