I think you take it as read that what you see is never what you get with politicians, Sanity. Obama looks pretty normal to me - as does McCain. What we are talking about here is 'weird' - unfathomable!

After she'd pissed off everybody at every level as Education Minister - I don't think anyone (particularly in her own party) had Margaret Thatcher pegged as a bit of a genius. Albeit crazy as an owl.

However, unless you were completely unobservant of human nature - you did realise that she was a thoroughly nauseating bitch and that you were in for some unpleasant surprises when she got to be PM.


We had a lot of union leaders, people in every party etc., and every part of industry and culture that totally underestimated her, and she had their scalps dangling from her belt very soon.

The worse thing you can do with 'weird' is underestimate it, think it doesn't matter, can't hurt you. It can.

Those of us who have posted to this thread are not interchangeable. We are actually separate individuals. I have said that I agree with Clinton about not making personal attacks on Palin, and I have not made any personal attacks on her. Why someone would want to hold me responsible for what others in the thread have said and/or done is a mystery to me, unless, rather than seeing us as human beings, that person sees us as some sort of Borg entity or something.

Bill Clinton says Dems shouldn't attack Palin
Posted: 10:36 PM ET

From CNN Ticker Producer Alexander Mooney


Bill Clinton said Dems shouldn't attack Palin.
(CNN) — Bill Clinton said Monday the Democratic ticket should steer clear of launching personal attacks on Sarah Palin over her relatively thin resume, and instead acknowledge she was a "good choice" for the No. 2 spot on the GOP ticket.

"Why say, ever, anything bad about a person? Why don't we like them and celebrate them and be happy for her elevation to the ticket? And just say that she was a good choice for him and we disagree with them?" said Clinton, who faced repeated charges during the primary season he was overly negative toward Obama on the campaign trail.

Clinton's comments appear to echo advice Karl Rove gave to Barack Obama in his regular Wall Street Journal column last week, when the former Bush strategist noted attacking the VP candidate has rarely proven to be an effective strategy.

In one of the former president's few extended comments to date on Palin's surprise VP candidacy, Clinton also told reporters in New York Monday he knows why the Alaska governor is attracting massive crowds on the campaign trail.

"I come from Arkansas, I get why she's hot out there," Clinton told reporters in New York, according to the Associated Press. "Why she's doing well."

"People look at her, and they say, 'All those kids. Something that happens in everybody's family I'm glad she loves her daughter and she's not ashamed of her. Glad that girl's going around with her boyfriend. Glad they're going to get married,'" he said.

Referencing Palin's 5-month old child who has Down Syndrome, Clinton also said voters will think, "I like that little Down syndrome kid — one of them lives down the street, they're wonderful children."

Earlier Monday, Clinton suggested his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton, would have been a better political choice for the Democratic VP spot than Joe Biden.

"She would have been the best politically, at least in the short run, because of her enormous support of the country," he said on the daytime talk show The View.

Palin is a symbol for the misguided Religulous Right. It's not about issues. It's about personality distractions. The problem is with the American public, this works.

Targeting cities with 'spiritual mapping,' prayer

Can the 'spiritual DNA' of a community be altered?" That's the question posed in a Christian video called "Transformations."

Kenyan pastor Thomas Muthee is convinced that it can be.

Here's a little something about Sarah Palin's pastor, who goes to Africa in order to fight witches:

<<"As I was mayor and Pastor Muthee was here and he was praying over me, and you know how he speaks and he's so bold. And he was praying 'Lord make a way, Lord make a way,'" Palin remarked.

"And I'm thinking, this guy's really bold, he doesn't even know what I'm going to do, he doesn't know what my plans are," she continued. "And he's praying not 'oh Lord if it be your will may she become governor,' no, he just prayed for it. He said, 'Lord make a way and let her do this next step. And that's exactly what happened.'"

"So, again, very very powerful, coming from this church," she added.

In 1988, Pastor Muthee and his wife traveled to Kenya after being "called by God." Setting up shop in the basement of a grocery store, they claim to have brought 200 people "to God" and away from the town's "spiritual oppression."

The source of the oppression? Witchcraft, Muthee says. When researching the community, they found that a woman named "Mama Jane" ran a divination clinic that drew a large following in the town.

"We prayed, we fasted, the Lord showed us a spirit of witchcraft resting over the place," Pastor Muthee said.

...

"According to accounts of the witchhunt circulated on evangelical websites such as Prayer Links Ministries, after Pastor Muthee declared Mama Jane a witch, the townspeople became suspicious and began to turn on her, demanding that she be stoned," the London Times noted Tuesday. "Public outrage eventually led the police to raid her home, where they fired gunshots, killing a pet python which they believed to be a demon.">>

My sister likes Palin a lot. She says she doesn't like Obama because he's too socialist. Boy, is she going to be in for a surprise.

(I suspect Palin is one of the many people who call themselves "conservative" who are phobic about anything that sounds the slightest bit socialist, but who are perfectly happy to adopt socialist practices when it's either politically expedient or financially profitable for them to do so. And for this reason, her brand of socialism won't be of the sort that helps the people who really need it, like those who need universal health care, but only her cronies and those who are already fat from feeding at the public trough.)

Good post, Don. I personally got lowered by paying cash. Still prices can vary from Doctor to Doctor, and most I've dealt with, will go lower for cash. Also, I know that other countries health care is now superior. I believe it is Taiwan, that is considered the best(I guess from what perspective you're looking through, but I hear it's the best)

As for the Sarah posts...,remember, a crush of investigative reporters went up there to dig up anything and everything they could. It will all come out in the wash....hopefully whatever comes out, is based solely on 'historical' fact, and not spun one way or the other, to play on anyone's political agenda.

True indeed, Ebbie. I should not have included Medicare in my comment about economic bracket. Every American citizen qualifies for it when they reach a certain age. The ravages of writing too fast. . . .

I am well above that "certain age," and although I have the benefit of my wife's health insurance at work, I am sometimes able to use my Medicare coverage as a "secondary." My wife's insurance, as much as they deduct from her paycheck, covers only a percentage of medical bills, and some things it doesn't cover at all.

In the countries I mentioned above, I wouldn't have to be concerned about what's covered or who doesn't want to pay for what.

Comparing private medical insurance with Medicaid or Medicare within the same system doesn't tell you much. Whether you pay several thousand dollars a year in premiums or are in an economic bracket that qualifies you for Medicaid or Medicare, you should get comparable medical care. The best medical care the system has to offer in either case.

It would be much more revealing to compare the cost to the individual in premiums in the American system with the cost in taxes paid by the individual in, say, France, Denmark, Norway, or Sweden. And then compare the quality of health care.

In terms of health statistics, we are way to hell and gone behind most other industrialized countries in the world, where the individual gets better health care at much lower cost. Hell, we're even behind Thailand!

The idea that one can afford medical care if one learns how to negotiate is a fiction. It's possible that one might be able to afford a visit to their doctor's office if they negotiate with him or her, but hospital stays and most medical procedures and treatments are out reach for anyone who isn't fairly well off.

And people who don't have health insurance are forgoing preventative medical care because they can't afford it. They can't afford to treat their high blood pressure and their diabetes, either, because of the cost of the prescriptions and supplies. Pharmacies don't negotiate prices.
