America's most pressing issue of late has been energy. No Governor deals with the Oil companies and energy logistics like the Alaskan governor does. Sarah Palin has made a career for herself by exposing the corruption between the Government and these oil companies, and she has managed to move forward a vital project that has been stalled during the previous two administrations. In short, she is probably the most qualified candidate to deal with America's most pressing issue.
The media is doing everything it can to take her down.. Yesterday they where pointing out that she had donations from some of the same corrupt oil companies at Ted Stevens and Don Young are being investigated for. The time line vindicates her.. There was nothing illegal about receiving campaign contributions. What is illegal is receiving them in exchange for something else.. Palin lost that election and was appointed to he Ethics commission overseeing the oil contracts. She saw the corruption and blew the whistle. Those donations didn't cloud her judgment. She didn't look the other way when she saw corruption. She did what is right in spite of the fact that it hurt her party, and it hurt her donors. This is exactly why John McCain picked her.. He did the same thing throughout his career.
Thursday night Barak Obama accused John McCain of "Not getting it" - Not understanding the situation of mainstream blue collar and middle class America. Friday morning, McCain brought "it" onto his ticket. A hard working blue collar, middle class, state school educated everyday American.
By Friday evening the democrats where arguing that "It" doesn't anywhere near the White house... The left wing bloggers went haywire and made ridiculous claims about her, and somehow her teenage daughter is the topic of conversation. I think that Obama is knows that he is in trouble on this one. America will like Sarah Palin. She is one of them. The more she becomes the topic of discussion, and more the liberals are seen as desperately trying to sabotage her, the more America will break toward McCain/Palin.
Unfortunately for them, The Daily Kos unleashed the mainstream media with their bizarre fake pregnancy story, and once the media monster is out of it's cage, there is not a lot that the political parties can do to put it back.
