I'm an independent thinking American entrepreneur. I support the Fair Tax, small businesses, individual rights, closing the borders and smaller government. I know a bit about environmental science, and I'm all for clean air and water, but the current anthropogenic "global warming" sham makes my blood boil. Oh, and political correctness is for sissies.
Checkmate! Game Over! John McCain today executed a beautiful head-fake on the entire media and the country on his pick for a running mate. It wasn't one of the 4 white men that were presumably on McCain's "short list", but rather a conservative, woman govenor with a reputation as a effective reformer. No wonder McCain was smiling at Obama in his commercial last night while congratulating Obama on his "job well done!" He knew that his brilliant move this morning would knock Obama off the headlines in a New York minute.
I've been saying for months that McCain should pick Palin to counter the Hillary factor. If Hillary had been the Democrats' nominee, Sarah could have helped counter the female vote going for Hillary. But since Obama is now the nominee, there are at least 18 million Hillary voters who may still like to see a woman in the White House. Her pluses are too many to note right here, with very few minuses. Some are saying she has little experience, but she has way more experience than Obama at an executive level, and she has been the Commander-in-Chief of the Alaska National Guard for 2 years. She's got the right stuff...I can't wait to see her upstage that pompous windbag Joe Biden.
Republicans are downright giddy with the selection of Joe Biden as Obama's President, er, Vice Presidential running mate. Barack very nearly screwed up bigtime by introducing "President Joe Biden", and Joe soon paid the gaffe back, by referring to Obama as "Barack America".
Although, his selection as the VP nominee seems almost too easy to defeat. After all, his IQ is higher than ours. But like my pappy used to say, if it sounds too good to be true...
