why do you hate palin? is it that she is a women who speaks her mind, is it a women who ACTUALLY stands up for something and does not fold under polls or public opinion. what does barack have that she doesn't. what experience does barack have that some how disqualifies her. people who don't like her for her policies or opinions attack her at every turn. that BS about the 150K for her clothes, meanwhile barack spent 6 million dollars last night. do you not like her because she questions barack's associations (which should be the medias job) she has accomplished more in her career than barack yet she is labeled inexperienced. you can have my next paycheck if you can name 3 significant things barack has done, yet he is already labeled JFK. she has mispoken on several occasions as she has tried to play catch-up to barack who in contrast has had an 18 month head-start in this "try to remember as many facts, figures, and policies as you can game" that we call an election. either way you vote (dem vs Rep) you can disagree with a persons positions or views but never has there been a case of this much hate towards a candidate. its too bad it has gotten to this point. i respect barack for overcoming adversity. i don't hate him and i wouldn't even say i dislike him, but i disagree with 90% of what he believes and no that doesn't make me a racist.
