Sarah Palin...

From the Right: "Hooray! Huzzah!! YEEEEE-HAH!!!"

From the Left: "Boo! Hiss!! OH, MY [object of worship of either a religious or non religious nature]!!!"

Who is she?

Well, she looks sort of like the librarian in the video for Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher". She is either a woman of faith, or a Bible-thumping religious nut depending upon which side of her you happen to be looking at. She's a married mother of either four or five children, depending on whether you believe her, or the National Enquirer and Us Weekly. 

Either she is the noble, responsible mother of (at least) one "special needs" child, who made the hard choice, knowing that the child would be afflicted with Down's Syndrome, to nevertheless bring that defective child into the world rather than kill it in-utero, and devote herself to it's care and well-being, or someone who faked a pregnancy to cover up the possibility that her daughter procreates like a herd of rabbits.

She is either a "working mother" who constantly juggles the responsibilities of Governor of a state with the aproximate land mass of any twelve other states you would like to add together, or an incompetent twit who cannot even keep her family in line, and abuses power in order to punish and persecute the ex-husband of her sister.

She is either a strong woman in a man's world, or a Conservative man in a woman's body, depending on whether or not you care about the opinion of the National Organization of Ugly Liberal Women.

She is either the saviour of the Nation, or the focal point of Evil in our time, depending on whether you call yourself a Conservative or a Liberal.

Either way, she is the Republican Nominee for the position of Vice President of the United States.

Personally, I like her. (Big shock.) 

And, at first, it was difficult for me to put my finger on why I liked her. But then it dawned on me... She didn't tell me directly that she believed or stood for what she thought I wanted a candidate to believe or to stand for in order to get my vote.

She stated as obvious, undebatable fact the things that I believe to be true.

"America needs more energy ... our opponent (and his political party) is against producing it.

"Victory in Iraq is finally in sight ... he wants to forfeit.

"Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay ... he wants to meet them without preconditions.

"Government is too big ...

"Congress spends too much ...

"Taxes are too high ..."

And so on, and so on, and so forth.

And she has proven through the way she lives her life that she understands the fact that if any substantive and worthwhile change is going to take place, someone, somewhere is going to have to do some work, some heavy lifting to bring it about.

No "free" healthcare and subsequent government programs to force you to the grocery store because you are "obese"...

Freedom to manage your own diet, even if you have to hunt it down and kill it yourself.

I was not, and still am not particularly enthused with John McCain...

But I will vote for him now.

I will vote for him because I want Sarah Palin, and a hundred more like her, in Washington, loudly and proudly proclaiming and fighting for the values and priorities that she has lived in her own life, and that represent the vast number of us out here who work every day, and love and support our families and our Country, no matter what their shortcomings may be.

The only thing I regret is the fact that she is on the bottom of the ticket, and not the top.

I, along with the rest of America, am still learning who she is.

But, from what I have seen so far, I can tell you what she is...

Sarah Palin is a strong, assertive, and successful American woman who didn't have to become a bitter, victimized, man-hating shrew to get that way.

She is exactly like millions of strong and successful women all across America that the National Organization of Ugly Angry Women and the Democrat Party not only do not represent, but do not in the least understand.

McCain/Palin will beat the socks off of Obama/what's-his-name in November.

Not because of what they promise us from the national Goody-bag, not because of how they look or how well they read from a teleprompter, not because of what someone in the Media, or on Talk Radio tells us to think...

But because of what Sarah Palin IS, and because of what, and who, she actually represents.

US.

I am going to see Gov. Palin and her running mate in person tommorrow. I am hoping they will talk about the one issue I still haven't heard Palin's position on: Illegal immigration.
