Okay, I'll go political for a moment. Can't help myself. The press and liberal bloggers have had a field day attacking a woman governor (and, shame on them all, her 17 year old daughter) for several days. Last night, Sarah Palin showed that she is up to the task before her. She is smart. She is funny. (The difference between hockey moms and pit bulls? Lipstick! LOL!) She is tough. She isn't part of the Washington good old boys circle. She doesn't pander to the liberal press. She is a feminist in the best sense of the word (and not the part of the word that makes me not want to be called one).
I caught a clip of one of the gals of The View saying that the Republicans can't just replace one [woman] with another. (The actual word she used isn't dirty, just not one I choose to use in mixed company.) Well, she is right. But the Republicans aren't trying to replace Hillary with Sarah. They want to give the country an intelligent, experienced, tough VP who is a woman. And intelligent voters, men and women, who look at the candidates for the highest offices in the land will know which team has more experience and who can bring about change that counts to our nation.
If you missed Sarah Palin's acceptance speech at the RNC, here is a site where you can find both the text and the video of her speech. And while you're there, check out Mike Huckabee's address (text or video). He made me cheer, laugh, and tear up.
