From day one I have appreciated Sarah Palin’s values, plain spoken ways, and her non-Washington style of saying and doing things.
Sure, she had rough edges and lots of gaps in her experience and knowledge. She was the governor of a very small state, not a well informed DC careerist. Beside her lack of experience, she quit her job as Alaska’s governor for a very poor reason. Later she backed the candidacy of RINO John McCain, though this was somewhat understandable.
She seems to have a sense of humor, and it’s sometimes self depreciative. This is very refreshing and quite unusual in a city full of self important blowhards.
When I compare her lack of experience to our current President, she has more than enough. In fact, the argument could be made that less is more when it comes to political experience.
She seems to have is some sort of insight into what is driving the conservative, small government side of American politics. She is one of the few politicians in the country.who can turn out large, passionate crowds.
Something I really like about her is the hatred felt for her by the relic media. The recent dust up about her having notes written on her hand is a joke. Their hero Obama rarely speaks without a teleprompter, and when he doesn’t use one the message is at best, garbled. Abraham Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg address on a piece of paper. He did not deliver it off the cuff.
I am still don’t think she has what it takes to be the next president. But I will not be surprised if my opinion changes in the next couple of years.
