Obama and Palin share stage Saturday night

Posted: 10:55 AM ET

President Barack Obama poked fun Saturday night at his chief of staff and ribbed Washington's elite during a black-tie dinner at Alfalfa Club, a 93-year-old Washington social club.

The first African-American president began by poking fun at the club's historical roots.

"I know that many you are aware that this dinner began almost 100 years ago as a way to celebrate the birthday of General Robert E. Lee," Obama said, referring to the man who commanded the Confederate army during the Civil War.

Meanwhile – AK Governor Sarah Palin flew to DC to attend the dinner Saturday night. But it's what's missing from Palin's schedule that is causing more than a few heads to turn. In a city that is ground-zero for national political journalists, Palin has not scheduled a single media interview or indicated she will hold a press conference. She also brushed past reporters without making any comments Saturday as she entered the Alfalfa Club Dinner.

Why would Palin hold any news interview? She is a govenor , not the VP. I'm sure she would avoid reporters if she was fearful of questions they might ask. We have heard enough from Palin so our focus is for President Obama not wannabees.

Sarah "Caribou Barbie" Palin has joined the ranks of the Washington elite, with typical insider politics. She flies to DC , hides from the media, all the while trying to snick around to get Alaska loads of pork money! So much for labelling herself a Washington outsider.

Debbie   February 1st, 2009 4:55 pm ET

Good for you hugh, I read about Palin over on fox nonsense news and it is so silly , they really call her smart. I refuse to even turn on fox news anymore. You cannot convince anyone on that site Tina Frey protrays Palin as she is. It is a republican channel and Palin tasted the perks on the campaign trail so why not try again. The dnc welcomes her to run in 2012 but What the rnc thinks is anyone;s quess.

Debbie: The liberal media treated Palin badly prior to the elections, in not giving her a chance, and looked for anything that would degrade her because the media was in the tank for Obama. And you're disgracing the people of Alaska who elected her by insinuating her lack of intelligence, whereby she has saved that State a lot of money and has given back money to her constituents, the same as Obama says he will do for all States, only she gave back much more than Obama plans on giving back., She has run the State of Alaska with great intelligence and integrity – why can't you get that thorugh your thick skull. Do you think you could run a State – probably not! The liberal media never said anything derogatory about all the gaffs VP Biden made (and he made a lot of stupid mistakes) or all the money Obama spent in Denver putting up all those ridiculous columns so the football field looked like some Roman colliseum. And Fox News at least is Fair and Balanced where the other TV stations aren't even worth listening to.

John Hanley   February 1st, 2009 10:37 pm ET

I'm with you amb. Debbie is a regular on these Blogs and in my opinion, she is one of those who sees a Republican around every corner and under every bush. She has a habit of expressing her opinions as facts which she clearly inadequately researches if she researches at all. No matter what the subject of discussion is, you can count on her to turn it around to those nasty Republicans who apparently did something unspeakably terrible to her. I suspect that a lot of the negative Palin comment is based on a fear of her as a future oponent in her own right. She feels that Fox News is largely Right Wing in it's news content and I feel she has a good reason for her belief but she never mentions MSNBC and Keith Olbermann who I strongly suspect of dealing his cards with a few cards short of a full deck. You can't help but notice his veins bulging out as he takes his anger out on the Fox News Folks. I agree Fox has made some attacks on Keith but Mr Olbermann's responses are way over the edge. So while Debbie will never watch Fox, I will never watch MSNBC. I guess we will both have to watch CNN. As for Debbie and her comments, I guess we will all have to take a deep breath and perhaps some kind of a Debbie Pill and relax. I think we can count on Debbie to be a regular which she has all the right in the world to be. She is not alone in her beliefs and that's what makes this country so great. There is room enough in it for all of us.

did she take a private jet?.with the price of oil,maybe she should be at home trying to figure out where the money will come from to pay for things.

Maria   February 2nd, 2009 1:33 am ET

If I was living in Alaska, I would certainly ask the Governor who is footing the bill for her trip....

If you were her, wouldn't you lie low? What's going on with the investigation regarding her brother-in-law? Someone has to look a lttile bit closer on the office of the governor of it being used not only as a vehicle for personal vendetta ... is Palin's private and public life one and the same under the Office of the Governor of Alaska?

Delphine   February 2nd, 2009 9:39 am ET

...and she was only Mccain's vehicle to try to win the elections.She lost.But did it make her think? Of course not, she probably blames others, and tries soooo hard to stay in the picture.And lord knows how hard that is, if you are like Sarah, she's even ignored by QVC shopping tv sad.

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 11:45 am ET

John. you do not know we so donnot worry how I feel or think, this is a free country and I will defend our President. Palin governs a small state , in whicjh San Antonio Tx is larger, however it is easier to govern a smaller state . I did not say she did not have some skille but talking to the media , answering simple questions about politics she should know put her in the SNL group of she is easy to tease because she gave them great material. You are a man and the political group finds her sexy but compared to women in the real world she is ordinary. You are thinking like a man. I did not want the republicans in office just because of the facts in front of all of you. Money, money money, the republican views, hard work, hard work the democrats views!

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 12:09 pm ET

To you Amb, you must be a republican, Fox is a republican station and they will not ever see the other side either. Palin may be more prepared now but come on, did you not watch those interviews. People in Alaska felt sorry for her , I"m sure she has many followers but I;m not one, I see clearly and you place rich people in the oval office to help poor people. where would that make sense. I.m proud Obama won and I'm white. Preident Obama has seen both sides growing up so when you been there you get it but when you only hear there are people who donnot have food or money , well you overlook those kind of people. Shopping sprees donnot fit into poor people or having a nanny. Many people see through Palin's lack of ability to know her homework but if not knowing alot about government and having a pretty face, well yes I can run a stae!

amb   February 2nd, 2009 12:20 pm ET

Debbie – I'm sure SNL could use a lot of material from VP Biden's and Mrs, Biden's interviews, He has made so many controversial comments that SNL could use and Mrs. Biden misspoke also when she told Oprah that her VP husband was given the choice of being VP or Secy of State and that was after Hillary accepted the appt. Did SNL pick up on that – I'm sure there's a lot of comic value there. BUT the liberal media didn't want to make any waves. You say it is easier to govern a smaller state like Alaska but do you know that Alaska is bigger than the combined size of Maine, New. Hampshire,. Vermont,. Massachusetts, Rhode Island,. Connecticut, New Jersey,. Delaware and Maryland. and has a population of 670,053. Vermont's population is 623,908;and the Governor of Vermont is Jim Douglas. It's no easier to govern a small state – they have the same financial needs, problems, etc as larger states. So Debbie put that info in your pipe and smoke it!

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 12:37 pm ET

Land , yes it is bigger but population, talking people not land mass, get your facts strraight. What does it matter , she lost for good reasons. A few million looked at the Mccain ticket but millions and millions voted the right ticket! I could care less what you think of Palin, she is where she needs to be. Obama won because he cares, sincere , really wants the middle class to survive and yes the poor you republicans forget about, our President wants to help them. I hope Palin studies hard or hangs out with really smart people. I hope I never live long enough to see our country handed back over to the republicans. The truth is the republicans know our President can and will suceed, that is something we haven't seen in 8 years!

amb   February 2nd, 2009 1:03 pm ET

Addendum to Debbie: I watched those interviews and those reporters, without even talking with her, had a preconceived notion that she didn't know much because they didn't want any Republicans in the White House. Katy Couric is no brainiac and talked down to her, as did other reporters. You say I want rich people int he Oval Office and you don't think Pres Obama isn't rich? He must have had some rich relatives to put him through those ritzy schools he attended. My children went to Virginia state schools,with loans, and took them years to pay it back – but it wasn't as costly as Pres Obama's schools – Columbia and Harvard!! I would rather see a Republican in office who isn't going to lead US down the path of Socialism and/or depression. THAT'S THE CHANGE COMING FROM THIS ADMINISTRATION!

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 1:17 pm ET

Why is it Socialism when it is help for the poor and working class but a bail out for the rich CEO's. no one seems to be able to explain that one when you stand on the republican side. The President is doing his job and a President actual working makes republicans nervous. Interviews are what they are, if Palin was not prepared than she or the RNC should of let her spreak. Like I said it does not matter because she lost. The President worked hard and did have student loans that they paid back. Do your homework before you insult him.

amb   February 2nd, 2009 1:19 pm ET

Debbie – You say a few million voted for McCain – I beg to differ with you. Obama didn't win by a landslide. There were +46,000,000 who voted for McCain.

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 1:52 pm ET

President Obama carried the black,hispanic and 1/2 the white votes, yes I would call that pretty impressive. I'm being attacked on this blog because I'm patriotic toward our President. I'm still waitng for a republican to explain to me the difference when it comes to a bail out or sociallism, I know one is for the midfdle and poor class and the other for the rich. If they have a chance in 2012 then go for it,I do not see it but let them try. Why do you think the republicans are making it hard on our President.he went right to work and he is trying, yes that makes those republicans look real bad after the past 8 years, that is why they find fault in whatever our President tries to do, it is that transparent! I quess my Democrats are sleeping.

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 2:49 pm ET

If you just go and read the Constitution of the United Staes you will understand what the President is trying to uphold, and if you read the definition of socialism you should be as a Republican ashamed you ignore the rights of the middle and poor class. Socialism is not a dirty word it is simply the redistrubution of goods and wealth. How all American is that , our nation will grow under Obama ,it want sink into that debt of that enormous ditch we are in now. Socialism was what are fore fathers wanted for the good of all Americans not the choosen few to be bailed out when their millions were gone. Read and you will see !

John Hanley   February 2nd, 2009 2:57 pm ET

Oh, Poor little Debbie! The reason she is undergoing attack is because she is patriotic and supports President Obama. I think if you go back through any of my comments you can find, you will not find one negative comment against President Obama. Just the opposite. I voted for President Obama in the Primaries but not in the General Election. Not because I didn't think he will be a great president but because I have a very high respect for Senator McCain and his military service and I felt he deserved my vote. I never in my miond questioned that our next president would be President Obama and I am exceedingly pleased with him. As for your patriotic motivation, I will never question it. I served 27 years active duty in the U.S. Army including two tours in Vietnam. I am almost 67 years old and I had never been happier with the two candidates we had to choose from. It made it easy for me to vote the way I did knowing that Obama would be the one to take office. You are right, I don't know you and you don't know me. Fact is that my being a man does not influence my opinion of Sarah Palin. You will note that I paraphrase "in my opinion' often when blogging and "in my opinion" you are totally off base regarding Governor Palin's intelligence or qualififcation for public office. You are too willing to swallow every bit of misinformation pouring out from our news media during political election contest. If it fits your preconceived notion of "Facts", you swallow it all hook, line and sinker. I don't usually care to make personal attacks on other bloggers but you are so blatantly closed minded you are close minded about a man who was and is a Real Patriot, Senator John McCain. Senator McCain is not a typical Republican and you would find that many if not most Republicans do not accept him. You should have heard the drivel that the likes of Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Ann Coulter were using against him during the Republican Primaries. You would have thought he was a Democrat. The reason I picked you out of all the others like you is you are in constant attack mode with little or no live ammunition. I'm sorry if that hurts your feelings. You have my permission to call me a "Man" who looks at Sarah Palin and only sees an attractive woman. I think that is fair since you apparently only see a woman who does not agree with you. Anyway, feel free to yell at me. I have been yelled by experts and you are far from being an expert. Again, I suggest you take a pill of some sort and chill out. That way we can both enjoy the current President and his administration. I, like you, see an exceptional man in President Obama and while he will certainly make mistakes, I will not be among those piling on him every time he doesn't decide an issue the way I would decide it. After all, He is the President!

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 3:36 pm ET

John , I really do not care what you think of me , I will sleep just fine tonight. I watched the election from start to finish so I heard perfectly what Palin said at every interview. Yes because you are a man you will judge women. However Mccain was and will not be the only war hero, I look at those men who lost their limbs and lives to being patriotic also. I do give Mccain respect for his service ,my father was a Marine however McCain is not our only hero! Some of our greatest Presidents were not military men. I read the Constitution and the definition of socialism so I could blog. I really don't feel Larry King would appreciate a blogger being nasty and mean as you are. I get real tired of President Obama being belittled. If your are not one of these people then don't worry, but leave me alone with your views!

John Hanley   February 2nd, 2009 4:16 pm ET

Debbie, It has never been my intention to keep you from sleeping at night. What I think of you as a person is a non issue as I have never met you and you may very well be a nice person. You point out that Larry King never intended this blog to be a media for one of us to attack the other and I agree. It would be much better if we could simply address the question at issue and express our individual opinions. I have a high regard for the Marine Corps and for those who served as marines and therefore have a high respect for your father. What you seem not to be able to understand is that many of your prolific comments contain personal attacks either on politicians you don't like or on individuals who blog with different opinions than your own. I also read the Consitiution and have a pretty good understanding of what Socialism consists of. If you will again read back to my comments, you will find no mention of Socialism or critisism of actions that President Obama has taken to try and correct our Economic Problems. My Degree is in Government/Political Science and I have had a life long interest in the subject. Living in San Antonio, I often have occasion to go to Brooke Army Medical Center for medical care and meet many of the brave men and women who have lost limbs in the current wars. I often wear an Army Retired hat when I go out with a number of my unit insignias and these young men and women will actually come up to me in their wheel chairs and offer their hands in thanks for my service. You cannot imagine how humbling an experience that can be and certainly is not the sort of experience we had when returning from service in Vietnam. So on this issue, I believe we can agree. We are both patriotic in our own ways. If you think my comments were nasty and mean, than I apoligize but you have to look yourself in the mirror and see the sorts of things you are saying as if you have all the inside information on each and every issue. When I respond to your comments, it not because I want to bully you but hopefully to get you to see that there are opinions other than yours which perhaps may be equally valid. I don't claim to know everything or have all the answers but your "mean and nasty" remarks about Sarah Palin and John McCain are something that I simply disagree with. I will agree to leave you personally alone but when you make comments that are clearly your opinion and present them as facts, then I reserve the right to challenge you. And don't imagine yourself as the only one who watched all the debates, interviews, etc. of the various candidates and that somehow your impressions are the only valid ones. I know you will not stop commenting and expressing your opinions and I look forward to future agreements/disagreements. I don't know what your age or background is so I won't try to guess your level of life experience but I do find it reassuring that you are one who participates in the political process and not one who just complains about everything that goes wrong yet is unwilling to take the time out to vote. I'm sure that there are some things in this comment that you will not agree with and I wish that were not the case. Wouldn't it be great if everyone in this country were all of the same opinion and had the same goals. But then again, no telling what terrible situations that might get us into. Smile! Nothing Personal!

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 4:31 pm ET

Dear John I appreciate you being honest and you are right when it comes to McCain and Palin ,I really don't have nice things to say.I think how they handled themselves on the campaign was wrong simply because I heard from them more negativity toward Obama than what they were going to do for us. I do not feel just because you serve our country it should be a free ride to the White House. I believe in President Obama and I feel when I read untrue and vicious remarks, someone should say something in his defense. I just find it ironic the republicans are yelling they have better solutions so where was these bright ideas 8 years ago. I'm a 52 woman with 3 kids and 6 grandkids so John I have been around for a while. You might call me stupid or think it but I'm not alone when it comes to Palin.

John Hanley   February 2nd, 2009 6:00 pm ET

Hey Debbie, I feel like we have almost become friends. I find it much more pleasant to have exchanges like our last two. I have to be honest with you, I won't be 67 until April 7. I was born exactly 4 months to the day after Pearl Harbor. While I was much too young to be aware of much that went on then, I have been interested since the Korean War period in things politic (as well as many others). I am ashamed of myself as I had pictured you as a much younger person but as kids today will sometimes say "Thats My Bad." As to how McCain and Palin handled themselves on the campaign, I have to admit that they were much more in attack mode than President Obama was. I saw Mr. Obama live when he came here to San Antonio and wound up working for awhile on one of his local committees. I saw him as the perfect democratic candidate and donated a little money to his campaign. I had to fess up though and admit that while I admired Candidate Obama, I also found myself favoring Candidate McCain. As I said before, this was the first campaign in my experience where we had two people I could easily support. I also agree that having served in the military does not necessarily make you presidential material. There are numerous General Officers who would scare me to death were they Presidential Candidates. I would only point out to that it is the nature of political contests that one or both sides take unfair shots at the opposition. Sen McCain and Gov Palin were both clearly the underdogs having inherited the Bush Administrations mistakes. It might seem to us that many of the comments are mean and nasty and you might even throw in silly. Sen at the time Obama clearly set a superior tone in his campaign but that is not to say that many of his surrogates did refrain from unfair and often inaccurate attacks. You cannot always take the comments of media talking heads or other similar sources to determine the facts of an issue. Sen McCain and Gov Palin both took the more aggressive approach, I think, out of the realization that they realistically had no real chance at winning the election. I think that if the Republican Party had not foisted George W. Bush on us in 2000, you would likely have seen a candidate McCain who you would have had more respect for. If you have followed McCain's political career you would have seen that there was a clear difference between him and George W. Unfortunately, in my opinion, those who we refer to as the Republican Base hated McCain almost as they did his opponents Gore and Kerry. Can't cry over history though as it is was it was. The only thing I would say to you is try to put the attacks by McCain and Palin into context and then put it all behind you. I think you will see Sen McCain work with President Obama in many ways where they believe in similar ways. I can assure you that President Obama has put it all behind him. I do think that Gov Palin is a possible future threat to the Democratic Party but not in 2012. President Obama will be a two term president unless he makes some terrible mistake which I don't see him making. I am envious of you in one area; however, and that is the number of your grandkids. We only have two precious granddaughters by my daughter and her husband. Our son was married last June and we have high hopes for the future. I do have one more thought unrelated to any of what we have been discussing. I do think that we may both be kicked off Mr King's blog for spending so much time crossing swords with one another. I do actually look forward to your blogs. Suffice it to say that you (and others) have raised my blood pressure on occasions as I suspect I have raised yours. I don't always check e-mail or the blogs during the day but as an insulin dependent diabetic, I do like to entertain myself checking e-mail, blogs, and the news on the internet while I am doing the unpleasant part of being diabetic. I likely won't comment on every one of your comments but rest assured that I am out here and know that you are out there.

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 6:31 pm ET

I have a friend in you John, I'm happy. It is only me and my husband so it gets lonely. I see my grandkids but I like meeting people on blogs. This is what makes the world go around. Some of your good friends are meet in a way you would never suspect. I watch Larry daily so I find myself on the blog alot. I will work on my skills of pointing my finger at Palin, with age comes wisdom and being set in your ways. I hope our President can and will get some of these problems solved. At least get a handle on alot of this spending . Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks John for listening even if we do not agree, well that is why we keep talking and find some middle ground.

John Hanley   February 2nd, 2009 7:57 pm ET

Hey Debbie! Isn't life amazing? Maybe we should exchange e-mail addresses so we don't subject the rest of the world to our back and forths. When the idea of home computers first came out, I resisted the idea as I seem to do with many things technological. I still can't for the life of me understand why someone would rather text someone than call and speak with them. I also refuse to use ATM's prefering to get pocket money from a bank or the local Post Exchange. What can I say! You can't teach an old dog new tricks. Perhaps CNN should create a new show and call it the Debbie and John show where we the lay persons can tackle all the worlds problems and set all the talking heads out to pasture where most of them belong. Oh well! I don't ask you to stop pointing fingers at Sarah Palin; especially if she does something especially bad. I think we will all be happier living in the present though. It used to be just my wife and myself here but our son has returned to the nest and married a girl from Mexico last June. They will be staying with us until they can save enough money for their own home. Daughter and family are in Fort Jackson, South Carolina and hopefully coming this way. No guarantee but we hope they get Texas. Would be nice to see those two beautiful granddaughters. I suspected you might be one who enjoys the opportunities the home computer can provide. I just caught onto Larry King's blogs in the last few months when he had a show that caused me to want to get my own two cents in. I just started to try and enter my e-mail address when it occurred to me that I may be opening myself up to thousands of people who are not entirely happy with my modest points of view. I'll have to think on that a bit. Perhaps Larry's people who are monitoring these blogs will be willing to pass on e-mail addresses for us if for no other reason than they are tired of listening to us. Oh yes! While I have been living in Texas the last 22 years, I was born in Chicago, Illinois and still have family there. So I had to be rooting for Obama at least a little bit.

ronnie patrick   February 2nd, 2009 8:44 pm ET

What is it to say for Palin has not enrolled in any universities or read any books to increase her knowledge about anything. Palin needs to return to somebody's university take some courses and educate herself on so many, many issues and to say anything would only make her look worse. If I were Palin I would be quiet also. Take myself out of the light and quietly educate myself for the next four years. Palin is empty headed and has other issues that I find myself wondering how in the world did she get to be a Governor?

John Hanley   February 2nd, 2009 9:56 pm ET

Hey Ronnie, I am curious how you came all this personal knowledge about Gov Palin's educational background and intelligence. I have to admit, I don't have such a close relationship with her as to be able to judge her abilities or what books, newspapers she does or doesn't read. I suspect you heard it from some knowledgeable person during the campaign but I have to admit that I am not her neighbor and she and I didn't attend the same classes in school. Why don't you just give it a rest. If she is the dunce you seem to believe her to be than she is clearly no threat to you or anyone else. On the other hand, she may be smarter and better educated than you think. She may have felt it beneath her to dignify such claims with a response. Boy would that be scary, huh?

Unknown Cutiee   February 2nd, 2009 10:03 pm ET

Sarah Palin Rocksss !!!! Doesnt See

But Obama Is The Greatest !!!

Debbie   February 2nd, 2009 10:27 pm ET

Hey John another one of those Palin lovers. I told you I was not alone in educating Palin on poltics. I feel someone has enlighten her on the issues , she is not near Hillary's potential but who knows, there are people who can surprise you. I know John I'm trying not to get real ugly toward Palin but if you are in politics ,you should know something. I think she is trying to reedem herself, and I wish her all the best.

Delphine   February 3rd, 2009 4:55 am ET

John Hanley wouldn't tell this before, but his real name is Rush Limbaugh. He needs so much words to say nothing, and didn't get over Mccain...we've probably need to search for people who cry with him...perhaps another couple of old helpless veterans???

mccain is Too Old and to senile, and the white house is no nursing home either, get used to that, johnny boy.

Rose   February 3rd, 2009 6:43 pm ET

Palin won the governor's race in Alaska by less than 100,000 votes. This is a fact. Big deal.

In a rich state where 85% of it's funding comes from oil revenue – you don't need to be a rocket scientist to run the place, and believe you-me, Palin "ain't no rocket scientist". Her role as governor is unique one, in a unique state. There is nothing to write home about. Many right wingers are evangelical Christians and as Palin falls into this category, undeserved blind support of her continues although she has proven herself, by her own actions and words, to be sadly lacking during the elections.

Palin is anti-woman and ignorant. Just listen to her talk to confirm this. Perhaps it's a good thing she is silent now. Her image is far too damaged to be rehabilitated. Many, many young women who can vote in 2012 absolutely hate her – they gasp when her name is mentioned (young men just laugh). She needs to keep her name alive to justify her multi-million dollar book deal with her publisher.

Rose   February 3rd, 2009 6:50 pm ET

Clarification: Palin won the governor's race in Alaska with LESS than 100,000 votes in TOTAL. Big deal. My city councillor got more votes than that for running part of a city. Governor-schmovernor.

jean ratliff   February 6th, 2009 8:15 pm ET

MS Palin flies everywhere in her privite jet but didnt have money to buy her own clothes on the campaign trail. She had to have fancy clothes for all her kids and their boyfriends who also took freebies from us.

Peter   February 6th, 2009 9:44 pm ET

Palin has been in the deep freeze to long , send her to russia to really see whats across her waters. Palin is a ditz She does make a good Republican tho, say much no nothing go therories,

David Brownell   February 7th, 2009 4:19 am ET

It was shocking enough to learn about the slaughter of wolves in Alaska. When I learned from your show that the next targets on Sarah "Annie Oakley" Palin's agenda include bear sows AND THEIR CUBS, it was even more shocking. At least we can be thankful for the results of the election... She's doing it to innocent animals but unable to do it to all of us!

Cathy   February 7th, 2009 8:12 am ET

Not a whole lot of Palin supporters on here. Doesn't surprise me at all. No way is the GOP prepping her for 2012. Her reputation is ruined. Big mistake throwing her into the spotlight like that with McCain. The interviews that she did were horrid. It showed her true colors. There was no "gotcha journalism" in those interviews. They were fair questions. Biden didn't say anything as stupid as Palin-EVER! Her thought process is like an old mans. She wants to take back rights of women? Isn't Wasilla the capital of Meth labs? Wasn't her daughters boyfriend mother just busted with dealing and using meth? Maybe Palin should start paying some attention to her children. I don't believe that she lost this election for McCain. I do believe that Obama won it on his own. The last 8 years have been miserable for our country. Change is coming!
