The Palins vs the McCains

It's been a long day and I got lost in google this evening trying to figure out who she is and what the GOP strategy is with Palin. I found out a lot. It's too late to blog it all tonight but here's one little thing I discovered. Cindy and Sarah have more in common than I thought. Cindy has her own plane and
so does Sarah

This is Sarah's back yard in Alaska.

This the McCain's back yard in Sedona.

It not unusual to have a lot of land in Alaska, but I wonder how many other soccer moms have their own airplane? You think that has anything to do with the six figure income she was earning when she was head of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission?

If her collar is blue, as the Republicans keep saying, it's most likely on a blue fox fur coat.

I gagged on the statement that she understands the problems and concerns of working families - maybe she does, but she understands nothing at all about how to fix them. She has as much background in economics as a brand new McDonald's franchise manager.

There are only about 20,000 industrial jobs in the whole empty state and neither the drilling industry or the fishing industry is in danger of being moved to India or China. Seems to me, she has a lot of nerve.

I did a lot of research last night and she's not as green as they like you to believe. She has a history of playing the politics of personality and winning. But that's in AK. She's also a ruthless cutthroat politician, cast in the same mold as Bush, demanding loyalty. Stuff is starting to come out. The thing about a pit bull is, they often bite indiscriminately. I'm starting to see some coverage of the 20% of Alaskans who don't think she's so great but are afraid to speak up for fear of retribution.

A lot can happen in two months. We'll see how she holds up.

Good point - I posted some quotes from her local newspaper when she was mayor of Wasilla. There was an uproar about her having invented her resume and a call to have her removed from office. Lots of complaints about her honesty.

She's a professional liar Fogg and a very good one. She's Rove in a skirt. Perfect for the ticket.
