Palin Staying in the Spotlight, Back on the Campaign Trail

Sarah Palin will be campaigning for Saxby Chambliss on Sunday and throughout next week in Georgia.

Sarah’s massive popularity in Georgia should give Chambliss’ run-off campaign an energy boost. And while Palin isn’t the only big name Republican to turn out for Chambliss, others include Huckabee, Romney, and McCain, she is most certainly the brightest star at this point.

With a close race against Democrat Jim Martin on his hands Chambliss can certainly use all the support he can get. Hopefully this, coupled with the lack of Obama voters for Martin, will put Chambliss over the top.

We shall see…

Liberals and “Insane rage”

I feel like I have to link to this story by Michelle Malkin (here’s the syndicated article) because the media has been pissing me off more than usual lately with their stories on how out-of-control, insane, crazy, hateful, bloodthirsty, evil, maniacal, vindictive, racist, nasty, vulgar, beast-like, and mob-like the crowds at McCain-Palin rallies have been.

Michelle’s piece is pretty comprehensive but its pretty impossible to catalog all of the insane acts liberals have been driven to by their own derangement. So I’ve decided to add two to the list really quickly.

First, there’s always the story of the nut-job Bush hater who punched a wheelchair-bound girl who has cerebral palsy. He did this at an event for Laura and Jena Bush’s children book… (New York Post has more details on this)

Second, there’s the case that I observed first hand in 2006 at the Chester County Republicans Headquarters on South Church Street in West Chester Pennsylvania. At the time I was the assistant grass roots coordinator, a volunteer position, for the Victory campaign and we were working out of that office. It was at that office that local liberals, most likely from West Chester University, decided it was appropriate to throw bricks through the front windows of the office not once but twice.

P.s. Awesome day in Football. Eagles win, cowboys lose, and I don’t have to listen to Olbermann’s annoying voice on Football Night in America (maybe NBC will fire him from that gig too, you know, since he sucks at it)!

Hey someone in the media finally gets it!

Shocking, I know.

But true.

Just check out Jonathan Martin’s article over at The Politico. Its about how McCain will be called a racist no matter what.

Sure its something that’s been obvious for months but, hey, give him credit for figuring it out at all.

P.s. Someone should send this to McCain and tell him to start making Rev. Wright an issue again. Its not racist by any means and its completely relevant.  After all he attended that nut job “church” for twenty years yet he still tries to claim that he has good judgement… its a joke waiting for a punch line. Start swinging McCain.

Congress finally gets oil drilling right, by doing nothing.

It took forever but Congress has finally caved and will not stop new drilling for off-shore oil.

Good news I’d say.

But, of course, as anybody who knows anything about government can tell you, there is still a mile of red tape to get through before anybody can actually go and actually drill for oil offshore. The biggest problem is in getting congress to pass a revenue sharing bill which cuts the states in on the money that drilling will enevitably bring in. Until then its doubtfull that the states will allow any drilling…

But I’m hopeful.

After all this is a winning issue for the Republicans and a loser for the Dems so the Republicans will push this as hard as they can until its settled and the Dems, as evidenced by the surrender on the drilling ban, simply can’t afford to fight back too hard.

So, as I said before, good news.

P.s. I can’t wait to see what this does to oil prices

Biden vs Palin so far…

So the number 1s have chosen their number 2s. Lets take a minute to make a video comparison of the two latest video from Joe Biden and Sarah Palin.

Here’s biden at a campaign event making a little gaffe and sounding just plain painful… (Bob Casey jr was negative 2 years old at the time)


And here’s Sarah Palin on CNBC sounding smooth and informed… plus she isn’t afraid to directly critique her own party.


McCain’s pick looks better and better every hour… can you say the same of Obama’s pick?

Sarah Palin, The most experienced?

So, now that the pick is in, its time for the Democratic attacks to start…

What about Sarah Palin (who went to the University of Idaho) will they attack you ask? Well, as Ironic as it is, her inexperience…

That’s right, Barack Obama and his surrogates will attack Sarah Palin because she doesn’t have enough experience to lead… boy oh boy. Now, any sane person will surely see right through this pathetic tactic (seriously, couldn’t they come up with anything better?) but I figure why not examine it anyway?

Well, it is true that Sarah Palin has only been Governor of Alaska for a year and a half. However, as Barack Obama pointed out himself once, Obama actually has less on the job experience that Palin since he basically started campaigning for president immediately after being elected to the Senate.

But beside that point, there is a whole nother aspect to this whole “experience” debate… an aspect that Palin wins hands down (even when compared to McCain).

And that is the experience of running a government. Palin is the only one who has any executive experience. She is the only one knows what its like to be the one and only person in charge of making the important decisions (from all accounts they’ve been good decisions) and accepting responsibility for their consequences. Being an executive is most certainly a whole different experience from being a legislator.

Palin’s executive experience adds a lot to McCain’s ticket… not to mention the many other advantages she brings.

Good job McCain, you have seriously made a winning pick. I am impressed.

UPDATE: Obama attacks but then backs off

Pick Pawlenty (or Romney if you must)… AND Lieberman

So, as I’m sure you know, there has been buckets and buckets of speculation over the GOP veepstakes and of course some friendly advice on who the pick should be. Well… now its my turn and honestly it seems like there is only one choice (maybe two), however I have a, not so secret twist, to my analysis.

OK, I’m just gonna jump right to the point, pick Pawlenty for VP. He is by far the best choice for you, period. He is pro-life, he is a conservative who won’t piss people like me off, he has more experience than Obama, he doesn’t run his mouth into dark racist allies like Biden, and you like him John.

I mean if you really feel shaky in the knees about your economic persona and expertise then, fine, pick Romney. He wouldn’t be a death blow to your candidacy atleast. But he does have negatives that will hurt you. Honestly, you can’t make ads against your opponent’s ticket with them going after each other and then turn around and pick someone who you clearly (and publicly) despised just a couple months ago. And I can just see the Romney vs Romney ads now… The guy is the republican John Kerry. But, regardless, he does have a following in the base and he could, most likely, hold his own against Biden in a debate (can Pawlenty?).

And, for the GOP’s sake, DO NOT PICK LIEBERMAN… for VP atleast. Lieberman not only is wrong on abortion, one of the most important issues to red-blooded Republicans and Conservatives alike, he is wrong on absolutely everything save national security. Putting Lieberman on the bottom half of your ticket will drive the base insane. And more than that it will drive young conservatives, like me, away from the GOP, a party that is only hold on to them by a thread.

However, you know what you could do to make your conservative base happy and still appeal to the independents you so love? It’s simple… after you pick Tim Pawlenty (or Romney) as your VP you make a triumphant announcement that you will be picking your long-time friend and highly respected “Independent Democrat”, Joe Lieberman, as your Secretary of State.

Think about it for a minute. Like I said before, Lieberman only has one winning issue (atleast to republicans) and that’s his foreign policy. Now, what high ranking cabinet member deals exclusively with foreign policy? Secretary of State. Think about it a minute longer. How much added media attention could you gobble up with an announcement of this kind? Lots, I mean has any candidate ever nominated a Secretary of State before (and one from another party at that)?

And, most importantly of all, with that simple, but bold, move you can have your conservative cake and eat it with your independent friends too! Everyones happy… (except the Democrats, of course) and isn’t that what you want?

UPDATE: McCain being smart and not picking a pro-abortion VP? The pick is Pawlenty?

UPDATE: McCain set to make his pick Friday at high noon.

UPDATE: McCain picks someone even better than Pawlenty!
