Gov. Squeakyclean to Speak at Republican Convention

21 08 2008

In a world of corrupt Republicans, Sarah Palin has apparently made enough of an impression on the G.O.P. that she’s been asked to speak at the Republican National Convention on September 2nd. It looks like a little pesky thing like an ongoing ethics investigation isn’t enough to keep her from being invited to speak on the evening in which “Reform” is the theme. (Is it possible they don’t read political blogs, or newspapers, or surf the internets?) She’ll be slotted in the evening before keynote speaker Rudy Giuliani. Popcorn and irony go so well together.

Here are the speakers for the evening:

  • Former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani
  • Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (Ark.)
  • Former Gov. Tom Ridge (Pa.)
  • Gov. Sarah Palin (Alaska)
  • Gov. Jon Huntsman (Utah)
  • Rosario Marin, California Secretary of the State and Consumer Services Agency and former Treasurer of the United States
  • Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson (Tenn.)
  • Gov. Linda Lingle (Hawaii)
  • Former Lt. Gov. Michael Steele (Md.)

UPDATE: (After coming up for air after laughing myself silly)  McCain has just handed Obama a nice election day gift…the election.  This should eliminate all doubt that McCain is capable of making a serious presidential decision.  Apparently the creationist beauty queen who is under investigation by the Legislature would be a heartbeat away from the presidency in a McCain administration.

That investigation is nothing more than a Democratic witchhunt! As an Independent I look forward to hearing Governor Palin speak over ALL other speakers, even John McCain! She is a rising star, and if she doesn’t get the VP position I hope she runs for President in four years. Sorry Hillary the dems may have missed their chance. I voted for Hillary in this election, but I would so pick Sarah Palin over her! Keep in mind, I’m a moderate Independent and I don’t agree with either side or any candidate completely. I’m half and half with both parties and on several issues I’m all alone!

Who can out currupt who, seems to be a game in Alaska…and I thought Washington DC was horrible. As a republican of 35 years I will never vote again for anyone from the state of Alaska.

Are you slamming her for being squeaky clean? She is a real woman and mother! Sarah Palin has 5 kids & she has done a little of everything! She hunts, plays basketball, is a hockey mom, has been a Sports-caster and even came in 2nd as Miss Alaska in her youth. She is an inspiration to many women. I hope that we can come to talk about her intelligently and not see the type of sexism we saw against Hillary in the media coverage of this campaign. McCain-Palin has my vote!

No, I was actually being sarcastic. She is currently under ethics investigation. I would hope that most people would vote for a Vice presidential candidate because he/she was actually qualified, not because she hunts, plays basketball, and came in 2nd in a beauty pageant. So let’s talk about it intelligently and not assume that women will vote for women because they’re women and not bother to go deeper than that.

It’s crap and you know it. McCain picked her because she’s a woman and nothing else. It’s a cheap trick to try and get women who were voting for Hillary..

People need to grow up and realize what they’re voting for.

I am an Alaska Republican, and I really wanted to like Palin. She started wonderfully doing away with the corruption in the state Legislature, yet after only 2 years in office she is trying to ship US jobs to Canada. Palin is the strongest advocate of the Trans-Canada Gas pipeline. The proposal she supports would allow canadians to build 99% of the pipeline at the peril of hard working Alaskans. Now that she is on the ticket I will be staying home election day.

I think John McCain picking a woman was a good strategic move. but I question the woman that he picked. I would have liked to see him pick a woman with more experience and there are hundreds. A few good choices would be Kay Baily Hutchinson, Christie Todd Whitman, Condi Rice, etc. It is even risker due to the fact that McCain is 72 years old. An experienced VP would make many people a bit more confident in John McCain’s decision.

Selecting this unexperienced woman to be the VP and possibly the President of the USA if McCain should drop dead is the stupidist move the Republicans could have made. I just can’t believe that McCain could be this idiotic. When are polititicians going to stop playing on emotions and try to get this country on the right track to benefit all the citizens, not just a few. Congratulations to Barack Obama, our next President of the United States.
