Palin Is Failin!
October 18, 2008
There’s no doubt that Sarah Palin is a fresh face on the political scene- too fresh. Her lifestyle is as good as it is bad. Isn’t that the way it is with most folks? Beyond her incredible ambition, what’s also admirable. She’s a great hockey mom and she’s PRO LIFE! But is that the qualiffications to potentially be president of America? I think you know it’s not.
Let me use the words of another woman, Peggy Noonan, whom I greatly respect. Her thoughts about Sarah Palin resonate wiht me as she wrote, “We’ve seen Mrs. Palin on the national stage for seven weeks now, and there is little sign that she has the tools, the equipment, the knowledge or the philosophical grounding one hopes for, and expects, in a holder of high office. She is a person of great ambition, but the question remains: What is the purpose of the ambition? She wants to rise, but what for?”
I think that’s a fair question.
I think she has been USED, and maybe she’ll figure it out one day, by the McCain camp to salvage his campaign; however, the splash that she brought had a 2-3 week shelf life.
Peggy goes on to write, “In the past two weeks she has spent her time throwing out tinny lines to crowds she doesn’t, really, understand. This is not a leader, this is a follower, and she follows what she imagines is the base, which is in fact a vast and broken-hearted thing whose pain she cannot, actually, imagine. She could reinspire and reinspirit; she chooses merely to excite. She doesn’t seem to understand the implications of her own thoughts.” Let’s be fair, she’s in over hear head.
As a 20 month governor of Alaska whe was in her element. Given a full term there, maybe a stint as Senator so whe could get a grasp on the world, and after that she just might be ready to understand the implications of the of the words the McCain camp has her launching as red meat for a conservative base that comes to hear her. Thee is no doubt that Palin has enthused and brought the right wing conservative base back to McCain, who had doubts about him; however, all the conservatives in America with El Rushbo leading the charge, can’t pull off the deal.
Palin is failin to bring home the bacon for McCain.
