Yup! She's ready to lead...

NOT!

Maybe they should have kept her away from the press for a few more days, but she's got the "Be AFRAID!" stuff down pretty good.

Finally, someone who’s one of us. Finally a political woman who is like the women I know in real life. A woman who wouldn’t have hysterics if offered deer meat, a woman who hasn’t acquired the weary, traumatized Ivy ennui and distaste for real life and real people. A woman who understands it’s a problem if truckers can’t make a living and people can’t stay warm in the winter. A woman who’s shriekingly Middle America and middle class, and would sit down and have a cup of coffee with her plumber. A woman who’d date a plumber.

It’s been a very long time since we had a national candidate who was anything close to an average American.

Sarah Palin is the real deal. She has lived life the way most of us have. She’s worried about making ends meet. She’s worked hard all week and spent the weekend having fun. She’s dealt with tough family decisions. She’s been decidedly and refreshingly normal.

More importantly to me is that she hasn’t spent most of her adult life marinating in politics. For her, political office is something you do for a little while then you stop doing it to do more important stuff like hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, and spending time with your family and friends. She hasn’t spend thirty years cozying up to assorted crooks, bigots, and money men in a single minded effort to get to the White House. She hasn’t spent over half her life in the rarefied air of the US Senate, with all its perks and power. She ran for city council because she was tired of high taxes. She ran for Governor because she was sick and tired of rampant corruption. Her life in politics hasn’t been about her. It’s been about getting something accomplished, then getting back to the stuff that really matters to most of us.

Next thing you know she'll say something like Obama is clean.

OH yes, and Obama who has been a professional campaigner is ready?? Your an idiot.
Lets see Obama (who could never even pass the requirments to be in the FBI or Secret Service because of his friendship with terrorists) answer a tough question just ONCE.

Charlie Gibson set her up to emberass her and it did not work. Obama without his teleprompter is an illiterate baffoon...Does it just piss you off that because of Palin, Obama is behind in the polls? Ha Ha.

Is it just me or does she sound like the mayor of South Park?

Hey Marshall,
I bet anon lives in South Park.

I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.....

If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, different."

Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers: a quintessential American story.

If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

Name your kids Willow , Trig, and Track: you're a maverick.

Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating: you're well grounded.

If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter
registration drive that registers 150,000new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of
the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs,
Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you
don't have any real leadership experience.

If your total resume is: local weather girl (sports caster), 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with fewer than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second
highest ranking executive.

If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.

If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

While governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with
no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant , you're very responsible.


If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America 's.

If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DUI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the
secession of Alaska from the USA , your family is extremely
admirable.

OK, much clearer now.
