Sarah Palin is No Joke

As you know I don’t write a lot or political themed blogs, but a friend sent me an email today about McCain’s selection of Palin, which just baffled him. A mutual friend of ours–an absolute die-hard extremist Republican–sent him some Republican-slanted email, and got him all riled up.

As for me, Sarah Palin for VP comes across as a risky strategic move … a move of desperation.

As for me, Sarah Palin for VP comes across as a risky strategic move … a move of desperation. It’s not about what’s best, it’s about what McCain thinks gives him the best chance to win, which is what all candidates do, so I don’t blame him there. It was an inspired choice, I’ll give him that. Never saw that coming. She’s got her baggage, but then again, all the candidates do.

The problem with the Democrats–and I’m a lifelong Democrat–is that coming off 8 years of Bush (in my opinion the worst president in my lifetime, at the very least)–is that Obama is still just barely ahead of McCain in the polls. How is that even possible? Based on the last 8 years, the Republcians have nothing to stand on. This should be Obama in a landslide, but it’s not. Which just goes to show how lame the Democrats can be, just giving the Republicans the very ammunition they need to prove the Democrats shouldn’t be in power in the first place.

I’m voting for Obama. But to underestimate Palin is a big, big mistake. She’s good looking, tough and a very good speaker. She might totally blow up and be an utter disaster in the end, but then again, she could become very popular throughout the campaign, giving the Democrats a run for their money.

The Democrats need to fight–hard and tough and ruthless–until the very last ballot is counted, or else they could let yet another 4 years slip through their fingers. It’s still early and we really don’t know enough about her, but from I’ve seen so far, Palin is no joke. McCain has always been a maverick, and Palin as his choice for VP certainly proves that once again. We’ll just have to wait and see how it all plays out.
