the others pale in comparison!
If John McCain wants to win in November, he should consider Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running mate.
She would attract women voters, yes. But beyond that, she represents the future of the Republican Party and would attract young conservative men and women to our cause.
Gov. Palin is a lifetime NRA member. In violation of feminist dogma, she has five children, including a son whom she refused to abort even though she knew of his disabilities. She has another son in the Army and her husband is a commercial fisherman. She’s for drilling responsibly in ANWR, and could help bring McCain around on the issue.
Impressively, she stood up against shifty politicians in her own party who were involved in dubious oil dealings. She did this at risk to her own career, and in the end, she triumphed. Compare this to Obama who has never stood up to the crooks in his party, whether in Chicago or Washington. Indeed, he’s helped funnel money to his pals.
This kind of integrity tells me she’s in it for public service.
A Palin nomination would also reaffirm the Republican Party’s historical commitment to the rights and duties of women in our polity, before the issue was hijacked by radical man-haters on the Left. Women can, should, are and must be a part of the conservative movement.
However, there is one caution; Hillary Clinton is supposed to be the first female elected to the Executive Branch, so her acolytes in the Mommy Dearest Media will likely come after Gov. Palin with both ovaries blazing. But, so what? Every conservative must face the fire at some point.
If she wants the job, I say we give it to her. C’mon John; shake it up! PALIN FOR VEEP!
