Thank You Tyler, I don't believe that Gypsy is so dumb that she didn't understand what I said but as you said, she danced right around what I asked of her. Gypsy, I'm NOT asking you to explain your opinion, norr am I asking you to explain why you dislike McCain. I simply want to know as I'm sure everyone else does, "WhAT ARE THE REASONS WHY PALIN IS NOT QUALIFIED TO BE VP? Answering with, "Because she agrees with McCain", is not an answer either, UNLESS you admit that you admit that you disagree with him because he's a Republican and you're not. Stop hedging around it like most Liberals do and be straight forward.
It looks to me like you're dancing around Moose's question, becuase you understand he already knows you didn't actually say you "disliked" her as a person, you realize that wasn't what he meant, but you DID say however, that you didn't like her as a VP becuase she isn't qualified. Moose is clearly asking for a list of reasons you don't like Palin as a VP and why she isn't in your opinion "qualified", and NOT a personal dislike. I think you could tell the difference in his question could you not?

Good points about Sarah Palin! I personally think experience for president and vice-president is overrated. Nobody knows what it is like … read more to be president or vice-president until they have sat in the oval office and have had to make decisions on the fly. However, that is where character, judgment and values take center stage. And on the issues of character, judgment and values, I would take the Obama/Biden ticket over McCain/Palin. McCain/Palin have been lying about their records since the RNC. To me that is a huge character, value, and judgment flaw and a bad decision by their campaign. Plus, Obama/Biden's values align with ordinary, average, regular everyday Americans while McCain/Palin's values align with the rich folks making more than $5 million per year.

A conservative columnist who welcomed Sarah Palin's entry in national politics says she's proved to be a dud and should step aside as John McCain's running mate.
Kathleen Parker, writing in National Review Online, says her "cringe reflex is exhausted" after watching the Alaska governor stumble through TV interviews and it's become clear to her that Palin is out of her league.
"No one hates saying that more than I do," Parker writes. "Like so many women, I've been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I've also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does."
FACT CHECK: BIDEN WRONG ON TAX PLAN
Joseph Biden charged Thursday during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania that John McCain's tax proposals for health insurance would be "the largest tax increase in the history of America for the middle class." He was wrong.
McCain does propose taxing the health benefits that some 156 million people get through the workplace. That's a major change, because now no income taxes are levied on those benefits, but it's not the whole story.
What Biden didn't say was that McCain also proposes to give the insured a new tax break in exchange -- a $2,500 tax credit for individuals and a $5,000 tax credit for families.
For most families, that tax credit would, for several years, be more gener
