Be reassured everyone, Palin is ok:


Asked in August about the prospect of becoming a vice-presidential nominee

It kind of cracks me up. It is so far out of the realm of reality (2008)


On her favourite food

Moose stew, after a day of snow-machinin' (2006)


On what got her into politics

I'm one of those people, y'know, I see a soldier walk through the airport and, y'know, my heart does a little double-take (2008)


On Barack Obama

Al-Qaeda terrorists still plan to inflict catastrophic harm on America and he's worried someone won't read 'em their rights (2008)


On John McCain

He's the kind of fellow whose name you will find on war memorials in small towns across this great country. Only he was among those who came home (2008)


Speaking at her old church, the Wasilla Assembly of God

I can do my part in doin' things, like workin' really really hard to get a natural gas pipeline (2007)


On her son, Track

When he turned 18, right before he enlisted, he had to get his first tattoo. And I'm like, 'Nah, I don't think that's real cool, son' until he showed me what it was and I thought, 'Oh he did something right', because he had a big ol' Jesus fish. So OK (2008)


When asked: 'what if Israel attacked Iran?'

We shouldn't second guess Israel's security efforts because we cannot ever afford to send a message that we would allow a second Holocaust, for one (2008)


On how Alaska's proximity to Russia gave her foreign policy experience

That Alaska has a very narrow maritime border between a foreign country, Russia, and, on our other side, the land-boundary that we have with Canada (2008)


Asked if she regularly got up early

Yup. We don't sleep much. Too much to do. What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump (2008)


On Alaska

We want to see Ivana Trump because we are so desperate in Alaska for any semblance of glamour and culture (1996)


On the American forces

They are building schools for the Afghan children, so there is hope in our neighbouring country of Afghanistan (2008)


Asked if she was ready to be a mere heartbeat away from the presidency

Absolutely. Yup yup (2008)

I saw a snippet from a McCain rally last night. They stopped a supporter and asked for a comment on Obama. This is what he said.


"He's a moslem, he's a terrorist and he's got to go!"


lol Funny and scary at the same time. He looked like a regular white senior citizen.

Seems that at all recent campaign stops, McC has been trying to drum the phrase "wealth spreader" into the minds of the attendees, basically trying to equate Obama to a socialist or communist.


When there is no concrete rhetoric and all there is left is labeling, you know it's down to the end.

Republican icon Joe the Plumber may release a country music album.


The Ohio labourer, who was plucked from obscurity by the Republican ticket after he challenged Senator Barack Obama over his tax plans, has signed up with a Nashville public relations and management firm.


Also helping guide his new prospects are country musician and producer Aaron Tippin, who has campaigned with Mr McCain and released the recent song "Drill Here, Drill Now", and a booking agent, Bobby Roberts.

Yes it can.


Different, but my grandmother was quite ill for a while before she died though she always said that she was absolutely determined to be alive to see her grandchild (my sister in law was pregnant).


She died two hours after seeing her grandchild.

I hope he gets more votes than American Idol.


In the complete 2005 season of American Idol just over 500 million votes were cast. In 2004 the American Presidential election garnered a paltry 122 million votes.

Nothing being reported in Aussie media about that - just about the record numbers turning out and Obama's likely lead....

Thanks - will keep an eye out...

I work for electoral commission in WA, and we had our own problems this last election ... nice to learn from others issues before repeating them unnecessarily.
