Two can play at this game

 The DD has to do anything she can to get Obama elected…anything!!

“Governor Sarah Palin gave her speech tonight at the GOP Convention, and it gave people who didn’t know anything about her the chance to finally meet her, you know, like John McCain.” –Jay Leno

Sarah Palin and McCain are a good pair. She’s pro-life and he’s clinging to life.” –Jay Leno

“John McCain has finally decided on his vice president. The only question now is from which house will he make the announcement.” –David Letterman

“Barack Obama said today that he is going to fight for votes in all 50 states. Yeah. That’s what he said. Meanwhile, John McCain said he’s going to fight for votes in all 13 colonies.” –Conan O’Brien

“Cindy McCain sprained her wrist. Doctors say it’s nothing serious — she probably did it cutting John McCain’s meat into little tiny pieces.” –Craig Ferguson

“And how are you going to be the vice president of the United States with five kids to take care of? She’s got a four-month-old of her own, she’s about to become a grandmother, and she’s partnered with John McCain. How many diapers can one woman possibly change?” –Jimmy Kimmel

“Let me ask you a question: is it just me, or does Sarah Palin look like a model for LensCrafters?” –David Letterman

“Did you see Sarah Palin standing next to McCain at the podium the other day when he introduced her? Didn’t it look like one of those commercials where the daughter is trying to find a nice home to put Dad in? ‘We’d like someplace quiet.'” –Jay Leno

“Five kids? Does anyone in that party understand the concept of pulling out?” –Bill Maher

  1. Bill Maher wins it for me, since I was thinking the EXACT same thing last night as I watched both Palin and McCain’s HUGE families on the TV. Palin has five kids and her daughter is already having one. McCain has seven kids! This is what you get for not using birth control and instead going with “family planning.” The world already has TOO many people.

    Obama wins again… two kids! Nice and simple. I bet they use modern contraceptives and stress the importance of safe sex, rather than abstinence. OBAMA/BIDEN 2008!

  2. Hey xpressyrsf……how may kids one has or doesn’t have should never cross ones mind while driving to the voting booth.

  3. I agree stuckn70s. The number of actual children given birth to should not matter. I was simply implying that it looks like a physical representation of her beliefs in sex education, as well as reproductive rights and practices.

    Although personally, I believe that with the strain of resources on the globe, and the amount of children without parents in the world, adopting rather than creating more children should be a bigger focus, I’ll give the McCain’s credit for adopting children. That is about the only thing I will commend them on.

  4. “And how are you going to be the vice president of the United States with five kids to take care of?” Isn’t that a sexist comment? Did anybody ask Arnold Schwarzenegger how he was going to take care of his 4 kids when he was running for governor or ask RFK how he was going to take care of his 11 kids when he became a senator?

  5. I concur Dave…that is a sexist comment…I just loved the diaper part of the joke…that was funny!

  6. Lets not forget that Palin continually calls herself a “hockey mom.” By playing up this mother card, she, in turn, is opening the door to remarks such of those made by Jimmy Kimmel. I think there are many few times where male politicians put such stress on their roles and duties as fathers, trying to unite “football dads.”

    I think the overall joke is well drafted because it includes all social aspects, rather than the political aspects of the campaign. Alternatively, it brings to our attention, through humor, that John McCain is very old and Palin’s staunch stance on abstinence education and what has been reported of her reducing state funds for young unwed mothers has resulted in her becoming a young grandmother.
