Ready to step in

Lots on the left are having hissy-fits about Alaska Gov. Sarah H. Palin. In case you missed the news, Sen. John McCain, selected Gov. Palin as his running mate.

The problem?

That depends on who you listen to.

If you listen to the Democrats, the problem is that she doesn't have experience. They are saying she's not ready to step in to be President if President McCain doesn't complete his term.

They say they look forward to comparing Sen. Joseph Biden, the Democrats' vice-presidential pick, to Gov. Palin. The current talking points are that Biden is ready to step in to the presidency if necessary.

Those of us on the right don't mind that argument. Not at all.

Ignore for a minute that, as mayor of Wasilla, she kept her promise to cut property taxes. Ignore for a minute that, as member and chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, she began her successful campaign to fight corruption. Ignore for a minute that, as Governor, she's actually addressing issues of energy and environment.

Ignore all that.

Focus on the Democrats' question: Who's more ready to step in as President?

I'll leave that answer to you.

But here's a hint: It's not Barack Obama.


  1. The REAL problem is all those that keep talking apples and comparing them to oranges. All four of our candidates have experience BUT that is not the real question. Do we continue to go down the same path or do we actually make a difference in the direction this country is going? CHANGE IS COMING!

  2. It was interesting that at the height of hurricaine Gustav that the main stream media thought it such an emergency to break in an announce that Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palins 17 year old daughter was pregnant. It is dispictable how the main line media is attempting to destroy a decent and honorable American family and those with the same problems many average Americans have had to cope with dealing with family issues. The main line media will swoon and bow and scrape at the feet of movie producers, actors, singers who drop illigitimate children all over the country without as much as a thought. This is disgraceful conduct by you liberal dems who refuse to challenge Barack Obama on where he has been for the last fifteen years and his association with Weather underground bomber Bill Ayers and others.

  3. Sarah Palin has you libs shaking in your booties. No Obama this year amigo.
