Where are the misogynists?
You know, those knuckle dragging, conservative, angry white guys who's whole meaning in life is being able to hold down women.
This woman's nickname is Barracuda, from her high school basketball days. She takes no prisoners. She's a government ethical reformer. She's been opposing Ted Stevens, who's got problems. Her husband works in the oil business. He helps to create the fuel that Obama uses to fly all over the country. The fuel that Obama says he wants to get rid of in ten years. This is tremendous, and everybody saying, "Well, how is she going to stack up against Biden?" It's not how she stacks up against Biden. It's how she stacks up against Obama. McCain has the experience-vs.-Obama thing wrapped up. "Well, what about foreign policy? She doesn't have any foreign policy." Neither does Obama! Our vice presidential choice is more qualified to be president of the United States than Barack Obama, the Democrat choice.
Sarah Palin is a real deal conservative, down the line, on all of the issues.
I shared with a colleague just a few minutes ago exactly what you said about the period of time when Ronald Reagan had broken onto the scene and I was in Washington D.C. the day he was inaugurated. That was one of the most exciting days of my life, because everything that we had hoped for and been working for had come to pass. I feel very much that way today.Mark Steyn .
....And for the gun-totin' Miss Wasilla then to go on to become Governor while having five kids makes it an even more uniquely American story. Next to her resume, a guy who's done nothing but serve in the phony-baloney job of "community organizer" and write multiple autobiographies looks like just another creepily self-absorbed lifelong member of the full-time political class that infests every advanced democracy.
I have to admit I was cool to her selection because I believed Obama's experience was an easy target to exploit and I was against her selection as well as Bobby Jindal's.
None the less, she has the opportunity to transform what the GOP looks like. It's going to be harder for democrats to claim their tent is so big when there was room for Joe Biden but no room for a woman on their ticket when republicans found room.
In addition, how is it that conservatives like myself are more enthusiastic for a woman than the guy on top of the ticket? Because she's a conservative. It proves that conservatives are more committed to principle than labels such as race, sex, etc...
See, Obama disciple's aren't the only one's hungry for change. Conservatives are dying for someone to pick up the conservative flag and run with it. Palin fits that bill.
That could open lots of doors for people to say "democrats talk, republicans walk".
