"I am absolutely thrilled with (John) McCain's stand to 'clean up' education in the U.S. During his acceptance speech, I was wondering if the (Gilbert Public Schools) board and (Superintendent Dave) Allison were cringing. ... Please start here, in our district, in January, when you start your cleaning up the bureaucracy. We'll be anxiously waiting for you!"

"At the Republican convention, John McCain talks a good show. For eight years, he didn't do anything but kiss up to George Bush (who) ruined this country and now he's going to do good? Forget it, John. You're not getting in."

"Chris Matthews from MSNBC gets tingles down his leg listening to Barack Obama speak. I got tears of hope and joy listening to Sarah Palin. The only difference is I don't masquerade as a 'newsman' on national television."

"As a loyal Dem of 45 years until now, I was very impressed with Gov. Palin and so was my 26-year-old daughter. Gov. Palin, with her husband's help, can not only run her growing family, but a city, then a state, and now can probably go to funerals and preside over the Senate. She could probably even take care of President McCain, if need be. And anytime she wants to run my household, come on over!"

"The person talking about a backwater governor is an ignorant person. Palin will be another Margaret Thatcher, a blessing to the U.S. and a curse to the Democrat(ic) Party."

"Sarah Palin may have been a 'barracuda' in Wasilla, or even in the 20 months she has been governor of Alaska, with less than 1 million human inhabitants, but she'd be a minnow in Washington, and a real fish out of water on the global stage. And that thought doesn't make me feel safe at all!"

"It seems that the Democrats have suddenly decided a seated state governor does not have the qualifications needed to be considered (vice presidential) material. Why is that? They said nothing when nominating and then electing Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton to the office of (president) of the United States. Double standard? I think so."

"We need at least one thoughtful, restrained adult in the two highest offices, not two impulsive and reckless 'mavericks.' Palin has shown that there is no one or nothing that she will not sacrifice on the altar of her ambition. McCain has shown us that he is reckless and a captive of the religious right whose intent is to run our lives down to the last personal detail."

"Hannah Storm on ESPN. Sarah Palin as VP. Never before have older women looked so sexy."

"Why can't we elect a governor like Sarah Palin? Instead, we elect a frumpy, old. liberal woman in comfortable shoes."

"Andy Rooney's eyebrows look as if they are going to jump right out of the TV and choke you to death."
