Is it Palin?

After my previous post on Sarah Palin The more I read about her the more I like her.

Her everyday Mom appearance makes a good connection with everyday people. More so I think than the 'Mount Olympus God' we saw yesterday evening.

That show reminded me of the China Olympics opening ceremonies. The Grander of the event was breath taking. The synchronizing, the fireworks, the theatrics in the stadium were all spectacular, however in the end the real China was still the real China.

Later we found out that some of that spectacular-ness was fake.The Chinese didn't even wait for the closing ceremonies to get back to business as usual by arresting China's Catholic Bishop Jia

So too with the Mount Obama event. Was it all smoke and mirrors? Do we really identify with these theatrics enough to vote him into office?

I really wanted to shout out loud "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, I AM THE GREAT AND POWERFUL WIZ..."

Well, you get my point.

Sarah Palin brings a substance we can all identify with. whether it be a Mom figure or a Wife, the mother of my children figure. There's some realness there. No smoke and mirrors.

Anyways, she's my selection however I hear Meg Whitman is also being talked about. I don't know too much about her.

Here are some of the stories on Sarah:

... At 44, Palin is younger than Obama and, like McCain, she calls herself a maverick.

A Gulfstream IV from Anchorage, Alaska, flew into Middletown Regional Airport in Butler County near Cincinnati about 10:15 p.m. Thursday, said Rich Bevis, airport manager. He said several people came off the plane, including a woman and two teens, but there was no confirmation of who was aboard.

"They were pretty much hustled off. They came right down the ramp, jumped in some vans here and off they went," Bevis said. "It was all hush, hush."

... By picking Sarah Palin, apparently McCain has calculated that he needs conservative enthusiasm and the excitement of a new face more than experience. Perhaps he's gambling that the Democrats will be too afraid to attack Sarah Palin as inexperienced, given their own candidate's problems in that area.
