Did I hear somebody say ANWR? — a map of AK, ANWR, and OCS fields
If it is Palin, and by all accounts it is, it moves domestic drilling, gas, and energy to the FRONT burner and it will dominate all campaigning and all debating. And with that in mind, I have a couple of pictures that I got from the office of my Congressman — the Honorable US Representative Joe Barton of Texas. We hear about ANWR, we hear | Read More »
Quick Thoughts on Palin
Wow, what a coup by McCain. I didn’t know he had it in him. Following on Jonah’s heels: Sarah Palin makes this election about three things for John McCain: -Energy: She’s our best spokesperson on this issue, hands down. -Life: She’s HARDCORE pro-life, and she’s lived it – as we all know, giving birth to a Down’s Syndrome child. -The War: Palin’s eldest son enlisted | Read More »
It Is Sarah Palin….
After writing blogs, calling everyone I knew in and out of the McCain campaign I have been pushing for Sarah Palin for four months. This is magnificent. So much for a bounce from the messiah. Yesterday I talked very briefly with a senior adviser from the McCain campaign and he let it slip when he said “SHE will surprise many people”. He hung up immediately.
FOX News confirms.

BREAKING: Gov Sarah Palin In Dayton [UPDATED]
FOX News is reporting that Gov Sarah Palin has drop in on Dayton, Ohio. No article yet, but I will post updates as they come in…. As for Pawlenty, it doesn’t look like he’s the one. Not that I had anything against him. I would have supported him too, but if McCain has truely picked Sarah Palin this has gotten me excited.
Get Sarah Palin on the phone
Tonight Barak Obama electrified a crowd and perhaps the nation. No, I’m not some shill for Obama and on my personal blog, I’ve already written why a speech is simply an exercise in teleprompter reading. Obama can read a teleprompter … I get it. But I am not the typical American. The typical American is going to see the glitz, the hype, and the man | Read More »
Sarah Palin for VP If We Want To Win….
This election is for all the marbles. Anyone who thinks differently is either naive or delusional. If the Democrats sweep it all they will pass legislation to tie up conservatives and the GOP for the next 50 years. The media has shown itself to be so in bed with the Democrats that no matter what they do or legislation they pass they will excuse it | Read More »
Four VP Gambits
1) THE FEMALE GAMBIT — Sarah Palin. Upside: Conservatives will love her. Women will vote for her (not all of them, but some of them just to break the “glass ceiling”). Good campaigner, means Biden will have to be careful in his debate attacks to not be seen bullying and we all know how careful Biden is. Downside: Trooper gate, does she fit McCain’s personality | Read More »
Did I just step into “Bizarro RedState”?
I am in the middle of a big company re-org and I cannot dedicate the time I would like to dedicate to RedState. But I do come back and post every now and then and lately, I have seen a lot of interest in McCain nominating a woman VP to (quote) “get the woman’s vote” or to “get Hillary’s disheartened supporters.” And especially has the | Read More »
Biden, check. Palin, checkmate.
I’ve already shown how Sarah Palin would be a smart pick by John McCain to be his running mate. In light of recent events, she’s looking like a smarter selection .The announcement made early this morning by the Obama camp that Delaware Senator Joe Biden is Obama’s choice to share the Democrat presidential ticket with him sets the stage for McCain to name his own | Read More »
The Beauty of Sarah Palin
I’m not talking about the mere physical attractiveness of Alaska’s governor, though she has been blessed with an abundance of that gift. Palin was a competitor in the 1984 Miss Alaska beauty pageant after being named Miss Wasilla earlier that year, where she also won Miss Congeniality honors. No, what I’m dicussing here is beauty in the political sense – as in the beauty of | Read More »

Kudlow interview makes convincing case for Sarah Palin as Vice Presidential candidate.
I must admit that my head is in a tail spin regarding who McCain should select as vice presidential candidate. Really. I think Romney would be an inherently bad choice given what both what he said about Mike Huckabee during the campaign (and that counts here in fly over country) and McCain. In fact I am fairly confident that most people I talk to in | Read More »
