Michigan Republicans launch a petition to bring Sarah Palin to their state.

Michigan Democrats launch a counter petition to bring Tina Fey.


  • Oh, the wacko Republican fundies up here love Palin, and didn't start sprouting lawn signs until they bore her name as well.

    It doesn't matter. McCain will still lose Michigan.

  • Same here. No McCain signs until she signed on.

    But they'll certainly win Texas.

  • more McCain - Palin signs seen here in south-west Ohio. Everytime I see one I fight the urge to laugh hysterically...

  • As I'm walking the dog I always ask no one in particular, "Really? Really?"

  • As the tide seems to turn in favor of the Democrats, I become even more wary of unexpected actions from the Republican quarter.

    We now see Palin flailin' from the podium, trying every possible angle to engender distrust or dislike of Obama/Biden, and the right wing radio in my neck of the woods (Pacific Northwest) has become increasingly vituperative. If it becomes more obvious that general opinion shifts in a Democratic direction, I'm expecting... I don't know what - something more overt and unpleasant.

    And that guy in the White House -- he's still president for almost three more months. I'm hoping he doesn't decide to do anything precipitous. My Democratic impression of Republicans is that to them office-holding is less about public service than about the use of power.

  • The one benefit is that Palin doesn't have too much credibility. Sure tha base believes her, but pretty much no one else.

    (I'm surprised they're not using other surrogates (or can they find anybody.))

    And, I don't think Bush is going to anything significantly negative. His legacy is so in tatters.

    In theory, he could do something good for the country or popular, but, you know, that's probably not going to happen.
