    In many respects it's akin to the Senior Senator from PA defending the interests of one of his larger supporters/employers, Comcast. In this case, MBNA is based in Delaware and is one of the larger employers in the state. I'll let others decide the propriety of the issue...........

    The hell with this stuff what we really have to go after is that little 17 year old republican (palin daughter) having sex before she is married, this is the stuff that will destroy our economy and all our moral values.

    I don't think that there is a single member of Congress that does not use his/her position for the fianancial gain of their families. Sad to say, but this is absolute commonplace on both sides.

    The McCain campaign released documentation debunking this claim. She has been a registered "R" since 1982. I posted the link in the thread about her being part of the Alaskan Independence Party.

    what was she in 1981? just wondering.....was she part of the AIP? if so, how is that 'debunked'?



    Palin Served As Director Of 527 Group Called ‘Ted Stevens Excellence In Public Service, Inc.'


    ????


    is this also something that needs to be 'debunked'...

    If true she went on to take on Stevens didn't she? Scott McClelland once was Bush loyalist

    word....


    I agree with that stance...I was just asking for clarification on this...or it it too needed to be 'debunked'

    ALL people have made strange choices about who they have supported in the past etc.


    these are the same kinds of attacks Obama has has to fend off in the past, she will be under the same microscope.

    In 1981 she was...

    17 years old.

    From what these records show she has ONLY been a registered Republican.

    McCain has children older than his VP candidate and almost as old as his wife. They are "off limits".

    Really who said that? I always felt it was children who weren't out of college, after college if they are in the public sphere they would be fair game.

    Joe Biden and Barack Obama welcome PAC's and don't stand up to pork.
