Palin won't quit on Michigan

McCain may have given up on winning Michigan, but Sarah Palin still wants to visit and tour the auto plants with her husband. Maybe we can get Ben "Rivethead" Hamper and Jerry "All Things Buick" Godin to give her a tour of the vacant lots where all the plants used to be in Flint.



Thanks to honorary Flint Expatriate Michael G. for passing this along.

  1. Who did she fire off the email to? Since McCain has said he doesn't know how to use email or computers?

  2. And this doesn't say much for the organization level of the McCain/Palin ticket. They give up on a major state — a huge blow to their elections chances — and she's on TV saying she disagrees with the plan and wants to go tour factories with her husband.

    By the way, who are the Michiganders who would even consider voting Republican again. How many times do you have to get burned before you wise up?

  3. The amount of McCain/Palin yard signs I've seen around the state is quite scary. Granted, most have been in rural areas and more affluent suburbs (you know, Grand Blanc and Fenton), but I've been surprised to see some in my neighborhood (west side of Flint). What's more surprising is seeing Obama yard signs out in the middle of nowhere, something I never thought I'd see.

  4. Maybe the McCain/Palin signs are indicating an anti-Obama vote. I see it in my very middle class neighborhood here in Davison. I think some of these people cannot see beyond the color of Obama's skin, they would never vote for a 'non-white' candidate, sorry to say.

  6. Is it just me or has she really pumped up the volume on the accent the past week? Did she talk like this when she was first picked to be VP? I know several people from Alaska, and none of them have this strange variation between UP'er and the movie Fargo.

    Any Alsaskans out there who can comment on this?

  7. At least we know now that she reads newspapers ... unless she just said she read it in the newspaper to prove that she does read newspapers ... in which case, she made her ticket look pretty lame.

    I see hardly any signs out here in northern Mass., for either candidate.

  8. I think Palin was doing her Tina Fey impression in that clip!

  9. The only signs out where I am are for Ron Paul.
