We now understand why "normal" Americans never want to run for a National office. Is there anything that is off limits in our society today? I'm starting to believe that our country is being over taken by radicals and it is time for us to take it back.
What excites many of us about Governor Sarah Palin is that while others talk about being "one of us", she truly is seen as being one of us. Yes, she is new to the National political scene, but many of us have followed her career for months or in some cases years. She is not the normal career politician. (Biden) She does not come from a political family. (Clinton or even Bush) No, she didn't go to Harvard (Obama), but does that mean that if you didn't attend an Ivy League school that you are some how less of a human. She has normal life experiences just like the rest of us, as we found out today.
Like, Palin, I went to college. I have a degree. I have three children, not five. My children are too young for me to be involved in PTA, but I'm sure it is in my future. I am a mom and on the side I write this blog. I think of myself as smart (Smart Girl Politics...hello) and when I was in the "real world" I had an extremely successful career. I have thought about politics in the future, but after seeing what has transpired over the last few days, it is now highly unlikely. That is too bad. I have a lot to contribute.
This is why I look to Governor Palin as an inspiration. Yes, she is a woman, but as I have written before, I would not vote for someone JUST because she was a woman. I did not support Hillary Clinton, but I admired her effort. MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell said that only the uneducated Hillary Clinton supporters would vote for McCain/Palin. What does she say about the Obama supporters who when asked why they support him, say he represents "change". Does she question their education? Does she ask them what issues they agree with him on? Ask any Sarah Palin fan why they support her and you will get a laundry list and her being a woman wouldn't be one of them.
A CNN reporter live on air admitted that she and others were sent to Alaska to investigate the family and the CHILDREN of Governor Sarah Palin. Her family and children? What exactly are they looking for? Are the kids secret spies or did Willow spill her milk today? Have they investigated Barack Obama's two children? It's ridiculous and malicious. No, I am not saying Obama's children should be investigated. That would be absurd.
Today was an extremely sad day in American politics and it had nothing to do with a brave 17-year old girl who got thrown into a spotlight that should have been pointed in another direction. The only thing that all of this does is strengthen our support for Governor Palin, her family, and the McCain/Palin ticket in November.
Come on people, get smart.............start questioning your media sources........and our political system. We are the ones who should "change" this atmosphere.
