Most people don't like hearing that. It sounds so...mundane....and we can't have a mundane office to be filled, can we? But that's the reality none-the-less.
So EVERY candidate for the job invents some BS that makes the job sound more important and impressive than it really is.
Oh, they spared her the announcement that of the 14 ethics charges the Democrats have bogusly filed against her, not one single one was ruled valid. The mainstream media wasn't reporting that. No. The mainstream media dodged that by making sure a third rate comedian aired a lewd joke regarding Palin's fourteen year old daughter, so that all Palin related news in the following week would be about the joke of the comedian, and not the joke of the Democrats who've failed completely to stick their mud onto her.
Yep, Palin speechifying shurrrre needed polishing. Guess what? She's not a lawyer. Naming court cases isn't the most important thing in a candidate, in fact, it ranks right down there at the bottom of important things they need to know, along with pop quizzes of Republican candidates to name the most irrelevant international leaders and dog catchers the TV interviewers can did up, like they did with Bush in 2000.
The real question, the question that mattered, the question that she passed, was did Governor Palin have an ideological basis for her decision making that would make her a suitable replacement for McCain if McCain croaked.
The answer to that was "yes". She was anti-tax, anti-big government, anti-baby-murder, pro-freedom, pro-business, pro-growth, and pro-America, nonen of which the Democrat team could claim.
Palin was all for cutting taxes.
She'd have won that debate by any objective standard, since any objective standard would have to be weighed towards the side that promoted the methods that work, not the best teleprompter reader.
And it would be funny as hell watching the Plagiarist discuss military strategy or diplomacy, or checkers or even which pickle will float to the top of the barrel first.
Oh, and gee....lookie there, you didn't mention Palin disucssing military theory or diplomacy with The Messiah? Naturally, apologizing isn't a good diplomatic tactic nor a sound military strategy, so The Messiah would lose.
I'm god, and I didn't send him, I know that.
There aren't any other gods.
I'd say the Democrats are engaged in wishful thinking, but that would mean they're able to think. So they're just a'wishin'.
