MonkeyDarts boldy states that "Michigan just moved to the McCain column!" with the selection of Sarah Palin. Political pundits have been stating for the last few months that McCain needed Mitt Romney (dad was our former governor) in order to carry Michigan. I was buying into that too - but now I see the light! The west side of the state and Yoopers will carry the day after they get a load of those pictures of Palin as the hunter and gatherer. Urban areas like Detroit will not vote for McCain/Palin, but they would never vote for ANY Republican. Democrats seem to be happy with mayor Kwame, our disgrace of a governor Granholm, and overall liberal policies that have decimated this state's educational system and economy for years. However, this year the right-thinking Michiganders will rise up for McCain/Palin and carry the day. I agree that "HOCKEY MOM" Palin only helps in this cause. By the way, THIS IS NOT SARAH PALIN [language warning for previous link]
Here are some noteable reactions to this gutsy McCain pick of the beautiful and tough Palin:
Oprah: "I think it's the most powerful thing I have ever experienced. She's not a woman candidate, she's a candidate for Americans. I cried my eyelashes off. And then I ate a pizza."
Of course, not all liberal reactions were positive, as they immediately fired up their well-oiled attack machine in an attempt to discredit her...
Former president Jimmy Carter called Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin a "babe," but he said the Alaska governor has been "milking every possible drop of advantage" for giving birth to a baby with Down syndrome. "Republicans seem to weave in the fact that she knowingly gave birth to this defective child every time A WOMAN'S RIGHT TO CHOSE is brought up," Carter said.
"Social policy" professor Anita Hill charged that Sarah Palin once put a pubic hair on her Coke can.
Liberal strategist James "serpenthead" Carville lamely tried to discredit Palin with his standard baseless insults: “If you drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.”
What trailer park?, asked John Edwards, nervously looking around for Enquirer reporters.
When former vp Al Gore was asked for his reaction to McCain's selection of Palin, he stated, "that's not change, that's more of the same". When asked for clarification, Gore said, "I happen to know for a fact that Sarah would not be the first vp wearing a skirt in the White House. Sure, I waited 'til Tipper was sleeping before I tried on some of her slinkier numbers. Once I even snuck down the hall and tried on one of Hillary's pantsuits. I could have driven a truck through the leg holes. Then she woke up and caught me in front of her full length mirror. Talk about 18 million cracks in the glass!"
