Early comment on the Sarah Palin choice

The jury is still out on the wisdom of choosing Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate this November but it's certainly true to say that her reformist track record and level of achievement make Barack Obama's paper thin resume look even thinner and is in stark contrast to Joe Biden's 30+ year career as a pork barreling revolving door for some of the worst lobby groups out there.

The other key point is the contrast between her clear beliefs and the malleable, populist positions taken by Obama and Biden who have the most left wing and third most left wing voting records in the US Senate. She's pro-life, pro-gun, pro-drilling, anti-pork barreling and anti-corruption.

Will she attract disaffected Hillary supporters? I think it's odds-on that she'll pick up a large percentage of female independent voters who were previously going to give their vote to a ticket with Hillary Clinton on it. Given that it's going to be a close election these women could prove decisive.

I think that her opponents will do well not to underestimate her. If the Democratic Party is not careful she'll wipe the floor with Biden in the upcoming VP debate(s).

And by the way, her Miss Wasilla photo reminds me of Amanda Bearse of Married With Children fame.

Jack, I agree that she is probably a formidable politician. There are a number of reasons for this.

First and foremost, she seems to be the real deal. The genuine article. The lefties don't understand that concept and will surely underestimate her. None of them will have ever met anyone like her in the loopy salons of San Francisco or Hyde Park.

Second she seems to be utterly without guile. How can you not be drawn to her?

But for a glimpse of how the Hillary supporters....not the looselugnut hard core leftie aging boomer feminists...... are reacting, visit

They are falling all over themselves writing checks to McCain now that he has highlighted the indignity of Lord Obama having failed to name Hillary as his VP candidate.

The Hillary gals must be conflicted beyond belief right about now.

They supported Hillary in spite of Bill's peccadilloes and now when they consider supporting Palin have to deal with her daughter's pregnancy.

Topsy turvy times in Democrat land.

We won't know for sure until Samsung unveils the phone, but current rumors about the S6 indicate that it will have a sharper 2560 x 1440 screen just like the Galaxy Note 4, it'll run on a faster processor, and Samsung may incorporate some metal into the design.
