The Sarah Palin Juice

by MullOverThis

 

Republican presidential candidate John McCain listens as his ...

I must admit, I almost began to drink the Sarah Palin juice.  

After watching the interview that GOP VEEP Governor Sarah Palin had with Charlie Gibson of ABC News, I am really beginning to respect her.  Governor Palin has more guts than the pork barrels she has acquired for her Alaskan constituents.  She is rare and bold to sit on a chair in front of the entire world and answer the questions like a programmed android.  Here’s Governor Palin’s response to the Bush Doctrine question:

The fact that Palin is a Republican, or concerned American, might indicate that she should at least know what the incumbent President’s so-called fundamental reasoning and justification was in declaring war against Iraq in the first place.  With a GOP VEEP who believes energy is the “foundation” of foreign policy–and that she is an energy expert–our country is in for a delightful four years if McCain/Palin is inaugurated in January 2009.  Sometimes as one passes the threshold of danger, while on the continuum of threat to catastrophe, the next step is utter laughter to quell the realities of shock and impending harm because of ill-prepared leadership.  Rather than panic, we need to remain calm, cool and collected should Palin be POTUS before her time.  

Palin definitely has the makings of a great Presidential leader–one day.  With her confidence and audacity to declare her readiness without “blinking”, she already has the requisite choo choo train “yes, I can, I know I can” determination to get the job done.  If only that were enough. Palin needs to know what was broken in order to repair and bring reform to our government.  Touting generalizations about President Bush and our current administration’s mistakes is part of the battle.  To remedy and revive our country’s domestic concerns and international presence and respect, we need someone with knowledge of so much more than energy.

Nonetheless, Palin refused to appear frazzled.  She thrived and came back with circular jaron and rhetoric to emphasize her point.  If this is not one of most valuable tools that establishment politicians use, I don’t know what is.  A+ for pendantic calisthenics while refusing to answer the question, Palin.
