FACT: Both of Obama's parents (the one's listed on his COLB, at least) died young.
FACT: McCain's parents BOTH outlived Obama's parents, AND HIS MOTHER IS STILL ALIVE.
This makes the likelihood of Biden becoming president upon Obama's death in office GREATER than the likelihood of Palin becoming president upon McCain's.
Therefore, ALL voters should be much more focused on Biden's incredible and incredibly idiotic and persistent gaffes, (and his numerous policy blunders - like opposing the 1992 Gulf War and calling for the partitioning of Iraq while opposing the Surge!), than with Palin's few gaffes or her rhetorical style or her accent.
These two words, "PRESIDENT BIDEN", are every bit as frightening as these two "President Obama" though for different reasons.
The words "President Palin" doesn't scare me at all.
Palin has proven - by taking on the corrupt GOP in Alaska, the sitting governor and Big Oil - that she is a person of great courage and moral character, a person with principles who can be counted on to do the right thing in a pinch.
