Sarah Palin for Republican VP – WTH?

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is no relation to Michael Palin of Monty Python fame, but wouldn’t that be the “funny as hell” icing on the cake! What a shocker of a running mate for McCain! McCain/Palin 2008. It has a nice ring to it.

I am not a politically active or opinionated person, as I pretty much believe that all politicians are fork tongued, double speaking…well, politicians. I vote every election, but I don’t get caught up in the partisan banter and mud slinging garbage that every election devolves into. They generally all make fools of themselves in the process anyway. But I just can’t resist watching what continues to be a historical election year. And to think that I thought that the last “chad counting” election would be hard to top. You just don’t have to be an avid fan or follower of politics to know when you are seeing something unique and strangely exciting happening. History has already been made in the Primaries and we are now guaranteed to have either our first female or black man in the White House, sort of. I know the VP doesn’t live in the White House, but you know what I mean.

Palin has very little political experience, and I have to admit that it is a little scary considering the thought of having someone so green sitting behind the helm of the Oval Office desk if the President died or was unable to serve. Then again, this woman may just be one ball-busting kind of gal that will turn Washington on its head and have it swooning in the gaze of her dark smoldering “hockey-mom” eyes right before she plants her ethical knee of justice squarely in the corrupt groin of modern politics. She ain’t hard on the eyes either, but that won’t be relevant when it comes to the task of dealing with foreign policy, an unpopular war, and a questionable economy.

I am now even more excited to see what happens. The feeding frenzy has begun and I hope Palin is prepared to handle the attack of a million hungry sharks in the Democratic party and the razor sharp words of a Democratic slanted media that are ready to shred her pretty little image apart. The game is on, and the question is will she blink? Will she break down and cry? or will she weather the fury storm and come out on top and have us all endeared to her charming smile?

Palin, I just hope you don’t have any skeletons in your closet; no drugs, no stripping, sex tapes, or nude photos buried in some obscure drawer somewhere just waiting for this moment in your life to suddenly surface. If you’re pure of heart, with a stiff back-bone, and are as hard-assed as some seem to think you are, then this ticket may just have a better than average chance of taking this race to the White House.

God Bless America!

  1. The American people are ready for change and Governor Palin is going to shake up Washington on both sides of the isle!

  2. I hear you man. She may not know it, but I think she is going to be shaking up more than Washington, if you know what I mean. nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Palin Power!

  3. It’s not just that she’s “green” and that her short executive office stint in Alaska hardly transfers to the rest of the country. Am I the only one who questions a candidate’s EDUCATIONAL preparation for the job they seek? There have been some great articles written recently on anti elitism as it is so closely related to anti scholarship. Is the decline in the U.S. educational system even debatable these days? People with a, shall we say, shallow education may get a powerful job, but then we often get to see the “turtle on a fencepost” scenario… an unlikely elevation beyond nature that isn’t going to be pretty on the way down. We’ve just seen what a leader who admits to not reading much brings to the most critical job in the country. It doesn’t always bring bad decision making skills, but I think that it can bring a susceptibility to being swayed by others and an unhealthy kind of cronyism.

  4. MAM, you’re not the only one who questions it, but you may place too much emphasis on it. I personally have known many well educated idiots that aren’t qualified to flip a burger, much less manage or lead. I have also known many uneducated people who were born leaders and have more sense and knowledge in a little finger than a million bucks worth of Yale education.

    I for one am not comfortable at all with the fact of Palin having her polished fingernails anywhere near the big red “destroy the world” button. I’m not any more comfortable with Obama having his skinny inexperienced legs kicked up on the Oval Office desk either. You ever hear the saying “never trust a calm dog?”

    Joseph Biden…Delaware? Give me a break. There are truck stops in Texas with more bathrooms than the entire state of Delaware. McCain…well, he’s getting old and could just drop dead one day or forget to put his pants on before doing a press conference.

    This poses quite a conundrum for our country. It’s like a game of tic tac toe…there is no winning move, so what are we to do, but hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

    I love this country!

  5. We may agree to disagree on the importance of education in preparing people to assess incoming data and make rational decisions. Your second sentence would seem to imply that all education is the same, regardless of the degree or whether your daddy made big contributions to the school. For president of the U.S., I want somebody who is a born leader (which I believe that Obama is) PLUS the kind of education that holds up under scrutiny. In other words, this country deserves the best. I would love to hear you explain your “calm dog” statement. In my business, we call that poise.

    You’re leaving out vital information: Biden’s extensive national experience (Delaware is as irrelevant as Alaska) he has been Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee while in the Senate, plus lead Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. We’re in a mess, alright. Hoping for the best and preparing for the worst is a way to get through life, and in this situation, I’ll vote for Obama.
