What if Palin had given Gibson Joe Biden answers?
The nattering nabobs of nonsense are busy parsing Sarah Palin’s answers to Charlie Gibson’s questions in the first segment of the ABC News interview and proclaiming that she isn’t ready to be vice president, God forbid president of the United States.“She wants to start a war with Russia!” and “She didn’t know what the Bush Doctrine is!” they are sneering. Never mind that she never | Read More »
Biden banking an awful lot on one “Dating Game” appearance
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. By now you’ve all heard that Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Joe “Dunkin Donuts” Biden has asked Jennifer Granholm to stand in as Sarah Palin during his campaign debate prep. She’ll be calling on her experience in the Hollywood audition room and six years worth of acting the part of a governor well enough to fool the voters, if not | Read More »
That’s Why She’s Just Called “Sarah.”
It’s been twelve days since the announcement that rocked the American political world. Since then, a lot has been said and written about the selection of Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, as the Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States. I’ll do my best to avoid repeating any of that. Let’s just start out with the question, “What is the most unusual thing | Read More »
Noonan is right — it’s going to be a gunfight
Palin did a tremendous job last night: one of the best VP speeches I’ve ever seen. She’s the real deal. Very quickly this morning, because I don’t have much time to write this — I agree with Peggy Noonan’s column today in the WSJ. Palin is so good that the Democrats are going to bring out the nukes against her. Be prepared to fight, because | Read More »
Winning The Whitehouse And Taking Back The Congress: Is It Possible?
I’ve been chewing on this a while and it’s time we got out of our funk… Read on:
The ‘high-tech lynching’ of Sarah Palin.
In 1991 Clarence Thomas was nominated for the U.S. Supreme Court by then President George H.W. Bush. The attacks on Thomas that ensued were astounding and sought not only to defeat his nomination but to destroy his reputation and character. Never mind that the outrageous accusations were unproven, they were tools to try to stop Thomas from being on the Court. The ends justify the | Read More »
The Vetting of Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin
Much has been made recently by various media sources about the vetting (or lack thereof) of Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin. Many sources are saying that the McCain camp did not properly investigate her background, and is now being surprised by sudden revelations by the media. Elizabeth Bumiller of the NY Times, as reported by MSNBC writes, A series of disclosures about Gov. Sarah | Read More »
Denial Isn’t Just A River in Egypt.
My flight to Milan, Italy on Friday had a stopover in Boston. When I got to the Denver airport, I suddenly realized that half of the eastern seaboard was trying to board flights back home after the DNC Convention. This included the first leg of my flight. About an hour into the flight, the captain announced over the intercom that John McCain had selected his | Read More »
Democrats frustrated over McCain’s pick of Palin
Right after the pick was made, the party that supposedly doesn’t attack, attempted to attack Sarah Palin. Didn’t matter that they knew nothing about her, they wanted to spin the pick to make it look as poorly as possible. A few Democrats attempted to try and connect her to Ted Stevens and Don Young. Two Alaskans facing corruption charges. Not recogizing her fight against corruption | Read More »
The New “New Woman”
Have we moved to a point now where women can now have “it all” just as men have had for centuries? It seems in Sarah Palin we might have just such a person. After the “Women’s Movement” for equal rights in the 60s and 70s it was generally accepted that a woman had two paths one towards success in a career and the other a | Read More »
Why I Got Excited (about Palin)
I am a college student from Indiana. I woke up this morning, turned on Fox News, and started my day by listening to all the speculation of Palin as the VP pick. I had to go to class however, so I took my laptop with me, and watched the rally in between classes. On my drive home (I commute), I was listening to America Right | Read More »
Thoughts on Palin’s introduction
She can certainly give a speech. I rate it at or above Obama’s acceptance speech last night. Why is it the Democrats talk about the little guy, but the Republicans live it? Neat fact: Both McCain and Palin have sons who ENLISTED in the military (Marine Corps and army respectively). Does that show elitism? They have a personal stake in the outcome of Iraq and | Read More »
This really is “Bizzarro RedState”
It’s not so much the fact that John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. For the record, I still think that was a bad choice on his part but that is not the reason I think this place is “Bizarro RedState.”
Palin candidacy puts the screws to Hillary
First, hearty congratulations to the next Vice President of the United States. This bold step by John McCain promises to make this election a barn-burner of a contest. One of the side effects of this decision, which I’m sure team Hillary was not anticipating, is to put Hillary into a tight spot regarding her maneuverings to become President. On the one hand, working wholeheartedly to | Read More »
That giant sucking sound….
Kudos to the McCain campaign, they have been extremely shrewd scheduling the VP announcement for today. It was designed to steal the thunder from Obama no matter who he picked, if only for the simple fact everyone would be wondering just WHO he will pick and not analyzing and promoting the Obama platform. But this, this is made of pure, unvarnished, 200 proof AWESOME. The | Read More »
