I “like” Palin too

My friend over at Porch Dog likes Sarah Palin, but for all the wrong reasons.  I like her as well.  Also for all the wrong reasons.  It made everyone I know duck at the ball thrown from left field.  It made a jump in the search and news reference for the word “maverick”.  And it made me laugh a little.  Unfortunately, if I’m honest with myself, I view this the same way I viewed the Biden pick.  This is a political move to get more voters.  I thought that about Obama and I think it now about McCain.  But that’s politics right?  Every move is orchestrated in the hopes to get the most votes.  The ultimate popularity contest.  I think America might be getting too good at it.  Porch Dog (from here on out referred to as Porchy) is right when he says the democrats are about to make a fool of her.  I just hope it’s not so bad that her other qualities don’t redeem her.

  1. As I’ve said on several posts there are two considerations–the political, that which gets you votes and the practical, that which protects the country’s ass when Terroristan blows your head off at the ribbon cutting.

    The difference between Biden and Palin is that Biden can actually perform as president if something happens to his africaner half.

    Also, VP choice does not gain votes, it’s been proven time and time again. So picking Palin, unless she was picked by people who don’t know how to read, wasn’t picked to “win votes” she was picked to win a news cycle.

    I half expect that McCain will pull a “fooled you” just prior to accepting the nomination next week. Palin’s choice was really, really bad.

  3. I don’t think McCain is going to change his pick however I do see Palin not accepting the VP pick for say, “My newborn is all the responsibility I need right now.” Who was born back in April and is one of the reasons I don’t like Palin as VP. I know I didn’t hit the nail on the head when I said this is a ploy to get votes but what I do know is there is no way McCain looked at this inexperienced woman and said “This is the best person to run next to me as my Vice President.”
