During the Democratic convention, I thought to myself, that if the libs want to kill the cons, they will select Hillary as their VP. Instead BO chose a very nice Senator from RI with a background in foreign affairs. Smart move, since BO doesn’t have a clue unless we’re speaking of Africa, or Indonesia.

All along, I kept telling myself that if McCain was smart, he would pick a woman as a running mate. My conundrum was the Nancy Pelosi image. Most women in politics are no different from their male counter parts.

Last Friday, when McCain announced his running mate, and I learned of her  credentials, I exclaimed, “what a genius.” She is Wonder Woman.

After thinking about it, I realized that Sarah Palin is not much different from my daughter. She is forty-five, one short thesis away from her PhD. in Oncology Nursing, she is a mother of two, she holds a full-time job in a hospital, and does consulting on the side. She and her working husband share care of the children. So, what is the big deal about Sarah Palin’s ability to run the country? Most young women of this generation are working mom’s with excellent credentials to lead. They are great time managers, and juggle tasks with ease. The difference between Sarah and my Jacque is her desire to take on the bullshit of running against the “good old boys.” She is as qualified as most women of her generation are. I don’t think I could say that for BO because I know too many men of his generation that are more than “articulate.” They build bridges, cure diseases, and invent new products. Senator BO has written a few useless bills which will no doubt leave us breathless, but poor. He is touted as having authored the first ethics bill in Illinois. Well, the governor recently vetoed an ethics bill because “it didn’t go far enough.” He organized a community on the South side of Chicago, whatever that means. He didn’t bring back the mills that caused these poor souls to become unemployed, or get these people jobs, but he did organize them. Nor did he get them retrained so they could find new work. I think it means that he encouraged them to “register” to vote so they could pick leaders who would get them more benefits.

It is  my belief that Sarah Palin, like many young women of today, will run circles around BO in any situation. Why are the libs so concerned about a VP choice, and comparing her to their presidential choice? Shouldn’t they be comparing her to Joe Biden?

Consider this:

It takes special people just to live in Alaska.

It takes a special person to take on the establishment and win.

It takes a special person to give money back to the tax-payers. Most would find a way to spend the surplus money on a new give away project to secure a continued existence in the administration.

Finally, when the libs can explain why there are so many unwed mothers in the midst of their party, then they can begin to pick on Palin’s daughter. My guess is that BO will dismiss that question as not relevent and move on, just as he has done on many issues. If the press had balls, they would look at the life of BO’s mother and her liberal-socialist leanings. What am I thinking, what influence would she have had on his upbringing?

  1. Kevin;
    I took your advice and Googled “Organizer.” Perhaps it is a noble profession, but I was never privy to the need to be “organized.” My parents brought me up to find a way to make it on my own. My dad, and mom would spin in their graves if they knew that I had taken something from the government. They came here with very little, and died with the same, but they endured the derogatory remarks from the locals and went to school to learn the language, they worked at menial jobs, and survived. They brought up three kids and educated all of them. They never once saw the need for an “Organizer.” God gave them all they needed. They had a brain and a drive to succeed in a world totally strange to them.
    Forgive me for not knowing what an “Organizer” is, but now that I know, it only ratifies my image of people who are totally dependent on others because of their own ignorance.
    We are all born with the same information. It is up to our parents to imprint our brains with the drive and knowledge to succeed.
    It is hard for me to fathom the squander of free education by so many. Why are they so hard headed about letting information in? Education is the key to eliminating the need for “organizers.” In my opinion, an “Organizer” is an enabler to mediocrity. Organizers should spend their time shagging truants to school.

  2. If you don’t know what organizing is, maybe you could google it. It is a profession that does a lot of good. And for you to dismiss it, because you heartily support McCain is disappointing. If you believe in McCain’s call to service- you know, his big push this campaign–just look into it. It’s a non-partisan type of work that does a lot of good for a lot of people. I don’t give a shit what you think about Obama. I’m just asking that you inform yourself about what organizing is. I don’t care who wins this election, but I know community organizing can make cities, and eventually this country stronger. Please, take the profession seriously.
