This is not now, nor will it ever be a political blog. But I just had the time to catch up on the speeches and news and campaign coverage I have missed out on recently. (work. sleep. you know.) I took the time to watch Palin's entire speech at the Republican National Convention. I think this is how I would feel at a cult meeting... wondering if everyone else is resisting the urge to laugh, or yell back at the speaker. She does have a good speech writer though, and she's attractive, which we all know is like number 3 on the list of most important qualities to have in an election. damn.
The idea of someone like Sarah Palin as Vice President scares me a lot more than John McCain as President. I am going to lose a lot of sleep leading up to this election, thinking about how she could be "one heart beat away from the Presidency" as someone put it recently. McCain is old.
I am also baffled as to why anyone would suggest that because she is a woman she might gain the support of Hilary's supporters. What? That's just ... I don't even know how to react to that idea. I don't know if it's just me, but I don't base my vote solely on someones gender. Are American women really that stupid?
I need a Valium.
