Ask her no questions, she hasn't learned the lies -- yet

The McCain campaign continues to use Sarah Palin as mere arm candy for McCain. She introduces him at events with the same canned "laugh lines" from her convention speech and then she is whisked away to a waiting SUV, while the adoring crowds chant Sarah -- Sarah. They can't get enough of her. Hell, they can't get any of her. She's not even allowed to talk extemporaneously to the crowd.

So far, Palin has barely spoken with voters either. Since the convention, she and McCain have breezed through a Wisconsin ice cream shop, a New Mexico restaurant and a Missouri barbecue place, shaking hands with diners but not taking any questions. Photographers and television cameras have been allowed full view while reporters are typically kept too far away to ask questions or hear most of the conversations.

McCain campaign manager Rick Davis has said Palin will "agree to an interview when we think it's time and when she feels comfortable doing it."

"She's not scared to answer questions," Davis said on "Fox News Sunday."
A select few of McCain's media favorites got to ride in the campaign plane with her to Alaska but they weren't allowed to ask anything on the record. Apparently, they weren't allowed to talk about anything except moose hunting and hockey games.

AP didn't get to go along on the ride. Maybe that's why they managed to mention she is lying repeatedly in her stale stump speech.

Palin's views on abortion are so radical that the majority of women would reject them if they thought through the consequences:

Should a woman be forced to bear a rapist's child or a child of incest, even though she may become suicidal? According to Palin, "yes."

Would a woman want one of the violent rapists who inhabit our prisons to be in her family's genetic future? According to Palin, "yes."

Palin as President is a real, and scary, possibility.

I'm trying not to panic SC. In a lot of ways, it's just media hype. I don't believe the polls anymore. They mean very little.
