"A Star is Born"
It was thrilling to watch this "hockey mom" put the sexist jag offs in the media back on their heels. For whatever reason, Racism is is OK for some voters and unacceptable for others, but sexism is just fine for all. Consistency was never the strong point of the Main Stream Media.
Palin is certainly not going to ingratiate herself, being the attractive, feminine, family woman, self made success story that she is with certain childless members of the political left, but they were never in play. My bet is Palin put married women with children back in play, and it is this group that will decide the election.
This whole thing is a complete DISASTER for Hillary. If Obama wins, he will certainly run again, leaving Hillary on the sidelines for the next 8 years. If McCain wins, he will almost certainly be a 1 term president, and Hillary would have her hands FULL in taking Palin to task. Still, I think Hillary did a service to her country and wish her well in her senatorial retirement. Sorry Hillary, but Palin is a self made mother of 5, a real American Horatio Alger.
Nevertheless, it remains to be seen whether or not Palin can capture enough of the women vote to overcome Obama's formidable organization. But I love a good fight, and now I would like to see the 2 sides talk about the fact that America's oil imports have fallen by over 7% in 2008 from 2007. Not to mention, what are we going to do next year and the year after if that trend continues?
Somebody ping me when these folks start to talk about the REAL issues.
Yours for a better world,
