On: Sarah Palin
I usually don’t blog about politics, but I’m honestly baffled about this political move. Maybe someone else has some insight.
Now, I’ve not done oodles of reasearch quite yet, mostly I just read her bio on Wiki.
I’m just finding it weird that McCain would go with a much younger woman, with very little experience. Especially since Obama’s lack of experience has been such an issue (on the repub side) in this campaign. She’s been governor of Alaska for 1.5 years, and prior to that, she was mayor. Now, I speculate that McCain is trying to capture Hillary supporters, which makes sense. But, I also think he had a lot of “good ole boy” vote, and he’s likely to lose it with this move. Also, so much has been made of Obama’s past (Muslim, etc) and her past is a bit questionable as well.
She “only” has a Bachelors degree. She posed for Vogue less than a year ago and was a runner up in a beauty pageant.
Now, the things I’ve listed above don’t matter to me a bit. But, it’ll be interesting to me to see how McCain supporters excuse them, or brush them away, because so many put so much emphasis on his past.
These are all surface things, and I plan to delve further into her actual politics soon.
But, I wanted to know what everyone thought of this move, initial impressions and all that.
