Hey Sarah Palin, impress me, I dare you? I keep waiting for the rest of the story, the “why” behind the nomination, the reason, the motivation, so far I’ve come up short. Maybe there are more articles I should read, I don’t know, I’m doing my best to follow along. I am very much looking forward to the debates, I want to see how this woman responds on her feet. So far, in my humble opinion, she seems rote.
Social media is alive and kicking but it still isn’t the mainstream of how we get our news. Some of the most intelligent opinions are being expressed through blogs, etc, but this information seems to be falling into a black hole of sorts. Is our country ready for change? God I hope so, I have a really open mind about change but I hope the change that happens is not electing McCain and Palin to the white house just because there is a woman on the ticket. Now, before you accuse me of being a hypocritical democrat, let me tell you, if she was a highly intelligent qualified woman, I would be all for it and then some. Hey Sarah, guess what, no one knows you! And your resume in my opinion isn’t that stellar. Mayor, Governor, PTA president, beauty pageant winner, baby maker and animal killer, interesting? Why would you accept this nomination? Don’t you think you have a few personal irons in the fire? Seems to me this might not be the right time to delve all of your efforts into drilling, teaching creation in school, and shooting wildlife. If it were me, not that I have all the answers, but I think I would spend sometime with my impending grandbaby and put some thought into how to help my daughter maneuver her way through this world as a single-teenage parent. I might even volunteer my time for National Association of Downs Syndrome. I don’t know, just a thought.
Yes, husbands/fathers are allowed to raise kids, they are probably in most cases very good at it, they bring a totally different set of ideas, rules and day to day than Mom. That’s not my beef, so don’t beat me up on the feminist or non-feminist movement, just know that I am more than pleased that women can run for office, that Dad’s will raise kids, and that it all can happen and you can stay married and be a united front for your children and your career. I want to meet Todd Palin. He must be a hell of a guy. I LOVE this idea, I wonder if it will work? It is one thing to get up, go to work, come home and 5:00 p.m. and be a Mom. It is a whole other thing to fly off to Kuwait for three weeks.
Michelle had me at hello, so really, Sarah, impress me, I dare you. And, if you win, I want to interview you in 4 years to see what you have to say about your time in office and frankly to see if you are still married.
