One More Teeny-Tiny Political Word

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Sep 2, 2008 in Local Community, Uncategorized |

Again – this is not a political blog…

But I just can’t help but say something about the republican nominee for vice-president…

I think it’s fantastic that we are at a point in history where a woman can be nominated for vice-president without hesitation.  I also have a certain fondness in my heart for Alaska since I’m working so closely with those from that fine state.

That being said…

I can’t help but wonder about the republican strategy in the nomination of Gov. Sarah Palin for two main reasons.

The first thing that came to my mind when I heard about her nomination is that she is currently involved in a scandal in her own home state.  While I was in Anchorage, the story was plastered all over the papers and the local news. I have to question the judgement of choosing a candidate that is involved in such a high-profile case right now…

The next thing that came to mind is that Sarah has not even been governor of Alaska for 2 years.  And before that, her only political experience was that on the city council and as a mayor of a tiny town (Wasilla) that is half the size of my own home town.  I hardly think that the mayor of Pitman would have the experience necessary to run the entire country (no offense to Mayor Batten).

I have great respect for Gov. Palin – and as a woman and a mom I admire her achievements.

However, with the republicans citing Barack Obama’s lack of experience, this just seems like an interesting choice…

where would the republican party be if mrs.palin was’nt a republican?
on the news.
they’d be all over the scandal,they’d be all over the pregnancy of her daughter,they’d be all over her lack of experience they’d be in their glory.
negative add after negative add.
they’d have something to talk about for years.
independent though i be this was an open election for me.
obamas inexperience was a concern, the republican party wants it both ways.
hypocrisy, hypocrisy, hypocrisy.
it’s not what is right for all us,it’s what is right about me.
obama took the high road, leave the daughter alone.

by the way that is not a response directed to the host.
it is directed to the world in general’
