There’s a book getting ready to be published about Governor Sarah Palin.  With only two months left until Election Day 2008, how Governor Palin is handled in the media is imperative to the McCain/Palin success.  The GOP only has a few days left to try and convince Americans that a woman who can fully load a firearm in under two minutes is competent to make decisions regarding our nation. 

So then the Repub strategy for selling the McCain/Palin ticket is laudable.  Obviously Governor Palin must go to national politics school so she can brush up and at least have a grasp on the stump speech issues.  Accordingly, she has not given any non-celebrity news media interviews.  The only coverage we’ve seen so far, is of Barbie beauty queen Palin and  Mother-of-five Palin.  The delayed indulgence to conversations wtih political media outlets is not because the queen needs time to highlight her beauty marks.  The queen needs to appear to be more than a figurehead, or one who holds public office as a state Governor, but did not know what the job of the Vice President of the United States entailed.  The Repubs want the public’s first and lasting impression of Palin to be that she is just like any other young, fit, attractive mom reaching for the stars and actually touching them.  So, they inflate Redneck Barbie Palin who has the innate persona that breeds confidence, put some words in her mouth, and won’t release her to the public on the issues too soon.  Pre-mature speeches or impromptu questions and answers with Governor Palin would surely prove to be embarrassing. 

The platform for Palin must be a sure foundation of hype first, so that when she is ready to hold her own, we will be committed to seeing the everyday soccer mom succeed.  Well, we’ll have our opportunity soon.  ABC News has an interview with Palin forthcoming.  I just hope that we will be able to see Palin on her own two feet before Election Day.  Not just in televised debates, but one on one with the press and general population as McCain and Palin traverse the campaign trail.  That’s when we’ll know if Palin’s knowledge of guns transcends hunting use. 

 Moderator’s Note:  Governor Palin has endearingly espoused the use of the word “redneck” to describe her husband.  I hope this is a cultural use akin to “my nigga” in the black community, which is ultra highly sensitive, but understood to mean a close friend, not a dumb ignorant fool.  The last time I checked, “rednecks” weren’t people wanted to ever see since nooses still exist.

UPDATE:  CHARLIE GIBSON WILL BE REPRESENTING ABC IN THE HONOR OF INTERVIEWING THE FIRST REPUBLICAN FEMALE VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN.  HIS RATINGS WILL GO THROUGH THE ROOF.  The Mr. Rogers of the ABC neigborhood Charlie won’t be aggressive with Sarah, but at least we’ll get an introduction to what Governor Palin brings to the table.
