Sarah Palin for VP?


A few of you may know that I’ve been on the Draft Palin bandwagon for quite some time.  Seems others are now discovering her.  Steve Maloney introduced me to her last fall.  Now Thomas Cheplick has picked up on the Palin mystique.  Back in August, I did an article about her for Blog Critics.   As I showed in my article, she is a “maverick” in her own right, and could perhaps be the perfect fit for the “Maverick” who is running for POTUS.

“…Palin’s first months in office have not been easy. Presiding over a Republican Party rife with accusations of corruption, many of them focusing on the state’s senior US Senator, Ted Stevens, Palin has served with grace and poise. In May, three former state legislators were indicted on corruption charges that stem from the repealing of the state’s oil tax and the creation of one which was more favorable to the oil industry. Palin has now called for a special session of the state legislature to meet in October. During that time she will ask for a new tax to compensate for the $150 million shortfall the ‘new’ tax has created.
Sarah Palin’s new tax hike is in keeping with her maverick reputation. She is now being promoted as a possible GOP candidate for Vice President in 2008. Will this proposed tax hike hurt her within conservative circles? She is a life-time member of the National Rifle Association, and strongly pro-life. A devout Christian, she completes the “maverick” image by maintaining openly gay friendships and implementing same-sex benefits for the state. According to Fred Barnes, there are those in Alaska who are not comfortable with her strong faith….”

I don’t know about you, but I think having a fairly young woman on the GOP ticket would be a refreshing change to the old tired middle age man problem.  Don’t get me wrong, I think we’ve had some incredible men on various tickets.  But, it’s time women are allowed to break through the class ceiling and start painting the elephant pink!  And I swear, with God as my witness, if I were ever to have the misfortune of being elected President of the United States of America, the first thing I would do after taking the oath of office (second – the first thing I would do would be to demand massive settlements on the Moon and Mars) the second thing I would do would be to paint the Oval Office a lovely shade of pink.  Why?  Just to watch the men of the world cringe in terror!
