The Unoffical Opinion of One Sarah Palin
He (yes, he's finally outed himself as he) takes a sober, rational look at the VP candidate. He sees in her what the Republican base is seeing. An honest, small town person. I think the voters see that. She a mom, a wife and a politician in that order.
The Loony Left is going so far as to predict when Palin will drop out as she is the worstest VP choice EVAR!!!!1!!!1!!
The fish can't see the water. They are so far from the center they cannot possibly see that the woman brings a lot of energy to the base. Her appeal is far broader than they think it is and she may have stirred the leviathan of GOP faithful. There are 60 odd days to go and I suspect the right is going to see a dramatic influx in donations and volunteerism.
The race is undeniably tight. Will it remain so? Hard to say. I suspect Palin will give McCain a bigger bump than Obama's short lived 4 pointer.
The election may well turn on the debates. Obama is very good when he's on the prompter but when he's unscripted the "ums" and "ahs" come out and he over extends himself. McCain has been on the Sunday talk shows for ages so it's familiar ground for him. Palin delivered he acceptance speech on the fly which is why Paglia is getting the vapors.
