    I just love Sarah Palin.

    http://www.mydailysentinel.com/articles/2008/10/13/news/news00.txt

    From the link:
    This woman knows how to connect with people. Now you know she could have sent some staff member to pick up diapers for her, but she didn't.

    I especially liked the line about how she didn't have time to answer questions from the media. She had time to go to Wal Mart. She had time to meet and talk to regular people but did not have time for the media. I wish more politicians were like that.

    It never occurred to anyone that the antichrist could be female.

    Stores are interesting. K-Mart and Target sell about the same stuff for the same price. Target stores are always neat and clean and so are the customers. Around here we have Bartels and Walgreens. They sell the same stuff for about the same price. Bartells is always clean and neat and the customers look clean. Walmarts look a mess, stuff in the aisles, and their customers look a mess.

    Wal-Mart has gone way down hill, dirty! We have the dirtiest Wal-Mart I have seen and the customers . . . but The Wife likes their fabric dept. just happenstance that it is on "The Res?"

    Horrifying thought that our next president would be elected by Chinese trash product loving scab store Wal-Mart customers. Compare with Costco - always first class goods, clean stores, union wages . . . .

    Your eschatology is off, check the Bible.

    Not sure just who you are trying to insult here Bill, Wal Mart, Wal Mart Customers, native Americans, or Republicans?

    Shop where you want Bill, our Wal Mart is usually clean and orderly. The customers there are representative of our local population. Of course we don't have the other stores you mention so we kind of have to go to Wal Mart.

    Best products, best price, most convenient, that usually gets the customers in a free market economy. I suppose I could burn up some more of this Venezuelan gasoline and drive to Tennessee and go to Target.

    you mean typical Americans?

    This was a very good thing for her to do but I don't think her connection with mainstream America was ever in doubt. She has been very effective with average Joe or Joe six pack from the start. So I like how the two statements I put in red go together.

    I know I'll get flamed but I'm going to ask anyway, if this wasn't a campaign stop just for the show, why hasn't the strait talk express stopped at any Walmarts before Sunday? Has Trig been wearing the same diaper all this time or did she start the campaign with over a months worth? I'm probably the only one who sees it this way.

    I wonder whether or not this was just orchestrated. Parent's Choice diapers are very low quality, and I see no reason why someone with that kind of income level would buy them.

    I'd bet money that Trig isn't wearing PC diapers.

    This one does but I'm not affiliated with any party... Heck, if Walmart don't have it then I don't think the Lord thought I needed it.

    Target and KMart are not about the same price. On anything.
    And Costco is even higher.
    I don't know where you been shopping but these claims are not true.
    We looked at an item at Wal Mart one time and wanted to look around to get the best price. We went KMart. It was the same item, same brand, same box. $10., it was something like $14.99 or so at Wal MArt. I don't know about you, but $10. makes a big difference to us. If I ahd to shop at the other stores you name, I wouldn't be able to take care of our home.

    There are some ignorant democrates who would like to believe this, or have the rest of us beleive it. But it isn't true. There only purpose is the fact Palin a republican was seen shopping there.
    I got news for you all, republicans shop at Mart too, and Costco and target. Oh boy where you all going to shop at now.

    I have no proof. That's why it would be a "bet." I could be wrong. I just know that PC diapers tend to leak at an excessive rate. I also know that Gov. Palin makes plenty of money to be able to afford Huggies or Pampers.

    Let's hope it doesn't backfire, McCain doesn't need anymore negative publicity...

    Not everyone who has 'plenty of money' spends freely, but rather wisely.
    You have no real idea about her and these diapers, and yet you make judgements against a mother who bought her baby diapers.

    The elitist dribble you utter may be more effective if spoken in complete sentences.
    I'm sure you are very pleased with yourself.

    When talking about diapers, is it wise to use the word "backfire?":laugh:

    Well at least she wasn't putting on "airs!"

    I make no judgments. I just don't believe that she actually is using these diapers. It is perfectly within her rights to make a political stunt.
