Your awesome Sarah Palin video of the day: Ron Paul's a "cool guy!"

There are many reasons to like Sarah Palin, the Republican vice-presidential candidate. Here's another reason:

Speaking with an MTV reporter about the Republican leadership hopefuls during the primaries, Palin said some really nice things about Ron Paul. Paul, the Congressman from Texas, had a large following in Alaska, placing third with 17 per cent of the vote there (ahead of John McCain, who received 16 per cent, but behind Mitt Romney with 44 per cent and Mike Hucakbee with 22 per cent).

"He's cool!," she said, "He's a good guy. He's so independent. He's independent of the party machine. I'm like, 'Right on, so am I.' The party machinery, on both sides of the party--Americans are tiring of the obsessive partisanship that gets in the way of doing the right things for our country."

Watch the excerpt:

Here's the whole clip (for context):

she's just saying what she knows Americans want to hear to make it sound like she's the same way... but it sounds like a bunch of BS to me. notice the only thing solid that she could say was that he was independent, and she, like him, is also independent... but.. what does that mean, really? oh, and the other definite thing that she said was - "he's cool" .. wow. That's quite a statement there. The rest is just her repeating what she's been told the Americans want - not that she's going to give Americans what they want, although that's the deceptive insinuation.

If Obama was born in Kenya,as found hospital records seem to show, and McCain was born in Panama, and the constitutional requirement of "Natural Born Citizen" still applies, Both are unqualified, constitutionally, that is. But a write
in campaign could be sucessful for Ron Paul as the real, only, Republican candidate eligible.

Not this again! Obama was born in the State of Hawaii in 1961; he is a natural born US citizen on the grounds of lex soli, or right of soil.

McCain was born in Panama to 2 US citizens; his citizenship is based on lex sanguis, or right of blood. The Naturalization Act of 1790 declared that those born abroad to US citizens are natural born.

Cut and dried.

Ooo another broken video and one of obviously copyrighted material not being used in accordance with fair use; way to buck the paradigm of respectable journalism. Throw the word Blog on there and poof all those pesky rules and guidelines about copyrights and quality reporting go right out the window.

Good point, Pete. I feel chastened.

But do please explain why they offer an embed option...
