Belle Of The Ball

Sarah Palin is a great pick for GOP.
For starters, her 'coming out' timing took the sensation out of the Obamagasm that had the media writhing in ecstasy.
Obamanation may still be moaning, but today it's for a different reason.

She is a true conservative by today's standards. A red meat,gun toting, Jesus loving, baby making, smart talking, good looking babe that will excite the base.

She's a strong willed,professional, advancement-minded woman who does not turn off the blue collar male vote, like Hillary would. And not just because she's eye pleasing. There's more to it than that. It goes to personality and presentation. Hillary, and most liberal feminist powerseekers, remind men of the of the naggy scold they divorced. Sarah Palin is more likely to remind men of the dreamgirl they wanted to marry in the first place.

In a democracy,politics is more about presentation and personality than qualifications and expertise. Obama's rise is proof of this, if you need a reminder.
Personal charisma plays a greater role in the the decision making of those who are more likely to swing left than right. Sarah Palin is likely to have some small swing effect on those who get bored with Obama's celebrity, and are looking for a new one.
Check the next cover of People. She should be there.

A drawback is lack of resume. This shouldn't be a campaign issue because her resume is still thicker than Obama's.

Like McCain, she has a son who is a combat soldier. This gives credibility when debating the war that neither Biden nor Obama can claim.

She has a record as an actual reformer that compliments McCain's record as a maverick at war with 'Bridges to Nowhere', which has actually gone nowhere thanks to Sarah Palin.
This is in stark contrast to Obama's call for 'change and renewal', which he has no record of, and in which his running mate is a poster boy for the satus quo.

Sarah Palin is from outside of Washington. When given a choice, voters routinely lean in this direction.

In a political climate sensitive to energy, she is the governor from a major energy producing state. I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that she knows more about energy production, and delivering it to consumers, than all three other standard bearers combined. I'd love to see her debate this one.

Sarah Palin has pumped up the GOP base that was likely to stay home. And the right wing bloggers and talkers have exploded in cheer, where yesterday it was all they could do to stifle a yawn.

If McCain keeps her in the forefront, Obama will be discarded as an empty-suited has been by his party who knew it all along, but won't yet admit it. Nobody on the left ever gets a second chance (exception Dewey).

I think Arizona is going to go for McCain anyway whether I vote for Chuck Baldwin, Bob Barr, or just stay home.

I watched him on the Saddleback Church Civil Forum and I must admit I was impressed.

Interesting. Are you aware that she supported a windfall profit tax on gas companies in Alaska?

This is going to be hilarious. It is so glaringly obvious that McCain did not do his homework.

raising taxes ought to play well to you lefties then. even you might vote for her.

but, in reality, it wasnt a windfall profits tax. its more of a sales tax.
alaskan citizens already recieve a rebate check from the sale of their oil. this really isnt much different, if the oil is owned by the state in the first place.
