McCain’s campaign stole Obama’s Thunder last Friday morning when announcing early morning that a complete unknown female governor had been picked as a Veep for the Republican ticket. What was supposed to be the day when every media outlet was to dissect “ZE Speech” by the MLT wannabee new Messiah, became the day for “Sarah who?”
I thought that it was funny! Suddenly the convention of the Democrats was old news, and so was Obama’s performance in front of 84,000 people. Too bad.
I also predicted that she would make the news and magazine covers, kick the Obama couple out of the flood lights, and she did.
Finally, I explained why it was a grandiose idea unless she had skeletons in her closet.
I was right (am I not always right?) so right!
The idea is grandiose because:
- She is younger than Obama
- She is “newer” than Obama
- She is as cute as Michelle
Obama chose an old “Washingtonite” for VP, one of the people he criticizes for the problems, and McCain chose an unknown successful “Maverick”.
McCain chose a woman, a mom, when Obama sent Billary back home, humiliated.
McCain chose a woman and the Obama campaign has to be really careful on how she is going to be treated (not to alienate voting women)
McCain chose a conservative mom
McCain chose a governor that stood for her state against oil companies and had them pay billions in taxes (Alaska is flooded with cash while most states are in the red)
McCain chose somebody who fought corruption in both parties, old politics and self serving “earmarks”
If the ticket wins, she will be the next Republican candidate to face Obama and Billary in 2012 but with four years experience as a VP
The skeletons are popping up thx to our tabloidic media and audience:
“Trooper gate”: did she or not directly pressure her administration in order to get her brother in law fired?
Pregnant 17yo daughter: suddenly it is an issue (not political yet and thx Obama for wanting to keep kids out of the way) obviously the poor 17yo won’t have the free pass other celebrities “a la Spears familly” get!
Husbands double decade old DUI.
Anything else? McCain campaign says it is all there is and they expected it! We shall see.
So what do you think? Good choice or desperate political maneuvers?
Also, what about the Democrats and democracy?
Nobody from any right wing fringe of the conservative/republican aisle have tried to derail the convention of the Democrats, attacked delegates and burnt and loot properties. You know: the gun and bible totting moron Obama dislikes!
But the left and its Democratic values was again shown in action at the opening of the RNC like usual protesters, slogans, public disruptions, attacks on citizens and properties, disruption of a legit political process, etc, et. It just reminded me that it is how it has always started with the world dictatorships of the left: intolerant brown shirts storm troopers marching in the streets and imposing their Democratic views via violence and intimidation, the first steps to re=education or concentration camps! You guys must be so proud of your activists! Just keep it up and you will scare the American people away from your “tolerance”.
