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 style.

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 »

I’m not talking about the mere physical attractiveness of Alaska’s governor, though she has been blessed with an abundance of that gift.

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 this | Read More »

Reality Mugs Governor Palin
Until Sarah Palin, Alaska hadn’t had a popular governor, at least not while in office, since Bill Egan way back before OIL. Alaska’s government is so powerful and pervasive that as soon as a governor takes his/her hand off the Bible, half the people hate him. Sarah Palin defied all that and has maintained phenomenal approval ratings all through her tenure, albeit still a short | Read More »
