Sarah Palin, Woo Hoo!! by The Elephant's Child

This is exciting! Sarah Palin is a wonderful choice. Strong, feisty, capable, tough, a reformer.  And above all, she’s real.  So many Washington politicians are patted and groomed into what they believe will appeal to this group or that.  Wardrobe consultants, make up consultants, soon it is hard to discern the person beneath the packaging.

We have been trying for months to find out who Barack Obama is, and what he stands for. His disturbing acceptance speech last night gave us no clue.  Is he completely unaware of what has transpired over the past few years, or was he merely trying to feed his followers enough red meat to satisfy their bloodlust?  It was a mean speech, full of attacks on George Bush who, of course, is to blame for everything — but who is not running again.  I suppose if you have a huge stadium full of people for whom high humor is putting a Hitler moustache on President Bush, accuracy doesn’t matter much.

The more I find out about Sarah Palin, the better this choice seems.  She has not been Governor for a long time, but she has accomplished an amazing amount of important things.  I can’t wait to see her out there on the campaign trail.

I cannot stress this enough – Governor Palin has more experience in the Executive branch of the government than all three of the men in the election! LOL

From what I here the Governor is a feisty and determined individual which should make for an excellent combination. With relative youth on her side, I suspect they will make an excellent team.

McCain does have executive experience from his military years, but I agree.

UK Voter,

I agree. She seems to bring a lot of plusses to the Republican ticket. Certainly helps McCain with the excitement issue alone.

I admit that I’m psyched – but I’ve been advocating Palin for some time.

I am so excited to see Palin as McCain VP choice! She adds a new dimension to his campaign! Go McCain/Palin in ’08!

One thing is for sure, McCain got the base excited by picking her.
