Clark,  The issue of her executive experience only came up in answer to the Obama supporters saying she was too inexperienced. It’s not that it matters “so much,” just that it’s silly to support someone as inexperienced as Obama running for President while criticizing Palin with more relevant experience running for VP.On a separate note: I especially liked to Obama’s running for office idea of experience: by that standard, the most qualified man in America to be president is Lyndon LaRouche.

Kartko:)Dyskusja o liiil ani trochę nie jest zabawna, bo jak tak dalej pójdzie, to będziemy mieli tam samych księży Tomaszów, którzy bez żadnego problemu mogą całą parafię zmobilizować do klikania. Na razie admin czuwa i do tego nie dopuszcza, ale jak odpuści, to na ile ten portal będzie miarodajny?

You *can* make a martini without ice cubes, but you need a freezer, and enough time for your gin, vermouth, olive brine (if you're me, and like them dry'n'dirty) to get as cold as they possibly can. Then you make it very quickly. You can still stir. Shaken is for heathens. wink

Anderson makes the point that free only works in a few scenarios.  The free product is really a loss leader to a priced product and has low marginal costs, or the product is free to the consumer, but not to a third party such as an advertiser for whom the product is anything but free.  I think Anderson points out the limits of free quite accurately in his book.
