    Printing: Conversations with the Young and Politically Motivated

  • September 4th, 2008 12:15 pm ET sarah palin is a attractive package with the same old republican rhetoric. mitt romney calls out the liberals and yet he was govenor of the only state that has national health insurance. i find it hard that people get caught up in the excitement of the moment and do not listen to what is being said.abraham lincoln did not organize the republican party and barack obama said he would raise taxes for families making over 200k a year, i find all this misleading and insulting to my intelligence. one thing about saral palin, she did not even try to be hillary clinton. with a bs in political science how can you compete with a lawyer , who so much experience as a senator in nyc. and then rudi juliani attacks the media. he loved the media when 911 happened!

    November 11, 2008

  • From that link:
    Obama has three separate vowel sounds compared to McCain's one.

    Very mistaken. Fine on Obama, but McCain has one vowel in each syllable (note the much-forgotten-in-English schwa), plus the diphthong in -ai- must count for something.

    "Harrison defeated Cleveland in 1888, making it necessary to consider Cleveland both the 22nd and 24th president."
