The libs are in lock-step

Man they do a good job of sending out talking points. You could write down the statements of the pro-Obama press members and it would be like writing a sentence 100 times for punishment in school.

They are masters at taking things out of context and turning it into the complete opposite of the actual meaning.

I'm referring to how they're parsing every single sentence said by Sarah Palin in her interview with Gibson earlier today. He did the same thing to her, taking her talk to the church about praying for our troops and singling out one sentence out of context.

The press (liberal press) has jumped on her completely correct answer to the question on NATO, Georgia and the potential for having to defend them if they were a member and were attacked. They ignore the entire answer and just take one little part, which was correct, and try to make it sound like she's a warmonger. Even the part they take out of context didn't say that. They say she must mean she wants war because she thought it was a good idea for Georgia to be part of NATO... thus that means she wants to go to war??? That is stretching past the point of splitting the seams.

I didn't get to listen to the entire interview as I wasn't home unfortunately. I have been listening to the press dissect it all evening though. If I have time I'll pop over to ABC and see if I can watch it. Chances are it's already on YouTube, too.

One thing that I find extremely interesting is how the press keeps comparing Sarah Palin's experience to Barack Obama's experience. Palin usually comes out ahead depending on how they're inflating Obama's non-experience in the Senate and being a community organizer. I'm sorry, I have the utmost respect for those who go into public service, who work in the streets in many ways, including being a community organizer. But being a community organizer no more qualifies a person for the Presidency than being a volunteer at a homeless shelter, or heading up a charity, or organizing churches, or any kind of community service. If John McCain had been a community organizer the press would be all over it, denigrating his background and experience.

OK, I'm done for the night. That should get a few more nasty comments from the love, peace and understanding broad-umbrella crowd.
