Sarah Palin: The Beauty and the Beasts

    The beauty in this case is Governor Sarah Palin, the beasts are the leftist media/blogosphere that is out smearing her in full force. She was announced as McCain’s VP pick only yesterday, and already the attacks are have gone into the gutter. For example: Questioning if her down-syndrome child is really her daughter’s (even if true, that is an entirely personal issue); Accusing her of | Read More »

    What Sarah Palin could teach governors in battleground states

    Half of all states have set up web sites to allow taxpayers to see how their money is being spent. Gov. Sarah Palin’s Alaska is one of them. She saw to this by having her administration create a state “Online Checkbook.”Voters in states like Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania — and while we are at it, Kentucky — should demand that their governors invite Palin to | Read More »

    It’s the Polar Bears, stupid.

    Another thing the left hates Sarah Palin for is her fight against declaring polar bears an endangered species. Polar bears are not endangered in Alaska. There is, however, a reason the left wants to declare the bears to be endangered. That reason is to stop the development of our Alaskan natural resources. Here is Governor Palin’s article from earlier this year. The lawsuit brought by | Read More »

    Squaring the Circle

    During the primary battles, and shortly thereafter, Some of us said they would not vote for McCain due to his many apostasies from conservative dogma.Since I am not a pure conservative myself I only said that I would support him IF and only if, he comes through with a decent running mate.

    In Which Steve Schmidt Rocks

    As I have watched the reaction to Sarah Palin’s new place on the McCain ticket, I have been shocked by so many different things. I don’t know why though. Lord knows the left has spent the last 8 years villifying anything Bush or Republicans have tried to do or stand for. I did hold out some hope that there would be some type of moratorium | Read More »

    Is it ghoulish and inappropriate for the GOP to hold its convention during Hurricane Gustav?

    Is it inappropriate for the GOP to hold its convention during Hurricane Gustav? Dems & 527s are already planning their ads to pounce on the Republicans for cheering and partying, while millions of non-evacuees in Louisiana and Texas suffer.

    The official Obama campaign site dedicated to defending Obama from smears (like his long time membership is a racist afrocentric church, his long time association with an unabashed terrorist, and his hand in glove dealing with convicted felons — vile smears all of them) looks to have been working overtime on a smear campaign of its own.The details are at Little Green Footballs.

    Palin Makes Good First Impression

    Sarah Palin made a good first impression.

[. . ]By way of comparison, on the day he was selected as Barack Obama’s running mate, Delaware Senator Joseph Biden was viewed favorably by 43% of voters.The following | Read More »

    Inexperience: Palin vs. Obama

    So Mr. Obama and Mrs. Palin both entered into corrupt political machines when they began their political careers at the State level. True or False? The difference between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama is that when Mrs. Palin entered political office and saw corruption, she fought it, and when Mr. Obama saw corruption, he turned the other way (at best) or thrived off of it | Read More »

    Two more (unnoticed) benefits of selecting Palin as VP

    As many have note in previous post the Pick of Palin has many advantages but I think that two of them were left unmentioned elsewhere: Firstly it neutralized one of the planned Democratic attacks in favor of Obama-that you are making history by voting for him and if you dare not to vote for him you’re a racist and bringing so much shame to the | Read More »

    I have to disagree with Allahpundit on this one.

    He thinks that this is a smart ad:…because it doesn’t mention Governor Sarah Palin by name. I think that it doesn’t mention Governor Palin by name because the Obama campaign didn’t have the slightest idea that she was in the running, let alone that she was getting the nod. If you think that’s unlikely, let me remind you that the DNC didn’t even think that | Read More »

    If experience is off the table, fine with me.

    I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been that thrilled with the tagline “Barack Obama is not ready for President.” or “Is he ready to help your family?”Mostly because it implies that perhaps 4 years from now, when he gets some more Senate experience under his belt, Obama WOULD be ready.The truth is, as we all know, is that Obama isn’t ready now and | Read More »

    Thank you Mr McCain!

    Once again John McCain has proven that he has the political genius to outwit his opponent in this election. With one masterful stroke he destroyed any momentum that Obama would have enjoyed from his convention and his “I AM” speech the other night. With the VP pick of Sarah Palin he has firmly solidified his base and has re-energized this race. Of course the smears, | Read More »

All he ended up doing, though, was to show that he is a complete fool by using something against her that can be used against his OWN favorite pick | Read More »

    But really quickly: I’m juggling baby and last-minute travel stuff.On the Right: McCain’s pick has energized and pleased Republicans, particularly conservative ones. Yes, yes, there’s all sorts of people trying to say otherwise, usually by reading off emails purporting to be from disgruntled members of the GOP. Alas for them, McCain’s people reported that they received $3 million dollars in six hours yesterday, with a | Read More »

    Obama vs Palin vs Quayle

Obama legislating for a small section of Chicago isn’t the same job as Palin managing a government for a small city.Running a State, even with a small population is still more leadership than Obama’s similarly short years in the US | Read More »

    Good Lord. Compare Joe Biden’s Performance to Sarah Palin’s

    No. Contest.And why is it these Democrats feel compelled to YELL in the microphone?The speakers are, in fact, turned up loud enough.Has Joe been drinking?

    Too busy to attend the Republican Convention? Or, Dis-invited, maybe?

    Since Arnold is too busy with his budget in Caleeforniea to give a prime time speech on the opening day of the Republican National Convention, it reminded me of the convenient absences of our Governor of Illinois. The parallel is not that close, but it got me to thinking.See, when Barack is having a high level appearance in Illinois, the Governor seems to be too | Read More »

    Sarah Palin and Ronald Reagan

    Dare I say it? Palin reminds me of Reagan in one critical respect: she thinks and acts like most Americans do or would like to, and she does it with a smile on her face. She’s the ultimate “one of us.”Whereas Hillary Clinton is a nagging harpy, Barack Obama is a sexually-suspect creature from another planet, and Joe Biden is a dirty old man.The thing | Read More »

    Since Media Won’t Help, Time for McCain to Really Exploit His Stance on Iraq

    Some how, the Old Media has missed the good news on Iraq. On August 27, the Rasmussen polling organization published a poll that showed American confidence is at its highest level ever in support of the War on Terror since they’ve begun tracking in January of 2004. This poll got little notice by the Old Media, of course, but it illustrates an issue that McCain | Read More »

    Real World Reactions to the Palin Pick! MUST READ.

    Here are the typical reactions this pick is getting…

    Obamas vs. Palin’s Experience

    Barrack Hussein Obama claims to be an agent of change yet he chooses Joe Biden as his vice-president pick. Joe Biden, the third most liberal Senator and party loyalist who has been in Washington longer than John McCain. This is the same Joe Biden who has been part of the problem. So we have a first term Senator running for President who has only shown | Read More »

    Obama Talks the Talk Yet Again…

    Barack Obama SAYS he’ll bring change. He offers change we can believe in and those with blind faith have jumped on his bandwagon. He chastised Clinton for being Old Washington and then he picked Old Washington for his running mate. John McCain SHOWED us yesterday that he supports change. His actions speak louder than any of Obama’s Oprahesqe words. I supported Hilary and would have | Read More »

    They’re Talking About Sarah

    “Why is it a genius move? It will complete the alienation of the rest of the Hillary supporters from the Obama camp. How? That’s easy — the Obamabots will do it themselves. Go read the Washington Post blog or anywhere online where the Palin pick is being discussed, and you’ll see the trademark Obama misogyny already out in full force.

    Obama talks the talk, McCain walks the walk!

    I am a disgusted Democrat! I’m male. I’m a yuppie. I’ve always admired the way McCain has crossed the isle, gone against the Republican insiders and stayed true to the public’s interest. I was hoping that Obama would be a fresh change politician. He talks the talk, but we fell for that with Bush. McCain walks the walk and we haven’t seen that in a | Read More »
