McCain Hits a Home Run with Palin!

How many times do we hear that this democrat or that democrat has hit a home run?

"Barack Obama Hits Home Run With Berlin Speech"

"Michelle Obama and Ted Kennedy Hit Home Runs"
Hillary Clinton "really knocked it out of the ballpark”
Alright, now it's my turn. By picking Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his VP running mate, John McCain has hit a home run; he knocked it out of the ball park; he's hit a grand slam!

Conservatives who have been lukewarm for McCain have recently started to become at least a little more enthusiastic about him. The choice of Sarah Palin will solidify the conservative base. She gives conservatives something to really be excited about, finally.

Here is where Governor Palin stands on a few of the issues:
On Energy: Open ANWR for drilling
On Abortion: Staunchly Pro-life
On Gun Control: Member of the NRA
On Gay Marriage: Marriage only between a man and a woman
You get the idea.

In addition to solidifying the conservative base, Governor Palin gives disgruntled Hillary Clinton supporters a reason to vote for the Republican ticket. I'm not suggesting that anyone should vote for a candidate because of that candidate's gender. I'm also not saying that all women or even that most women would vote for a candidate based only on gender. I am saying that there are some women who would have voted for Clinton because of her gender, and those women, many of whom have already said they would vote for McCain, may now feel more comfortable in doing so.

Sarah Palin brings youth to the Republican ticket; she brings change to the Republican ticket; she brings strong conservativism to the Republican ticket; she brings excitment to the McCain candidacy.

John McCain hit a home run with Sarah Palin.

I heard a caller on Hugh Hewitt's radio show yesterday say that she had been one of McCain's hold-her-nose-and-vote style of "supporters." Now that he selected Palin, she's ready to put out a yard sign! This selection has energized the GOP base like nobody's business.

Skyepuppy,

I'm just like the caller that you're talking about. I am going to put out a yard.

I have heard some people question Palin's experience in foreign policy and readiness to be commander-in-chief should something happen to McCain. My response to them is "Yes, I agree. She has no foreign policy experience; that's her one weakness. However, neither does Obama have any foreign policy experience. Would you rather your vice-president have no foreign policy experience, or would you rather your president have no foreign policy experience?"

It's pretty hard for them to argue with that.

The Dems are saying that the choice of Palin now takes any criticism of Obama's inexperience off the table. Silly them!

It's just like you said about foreign policy: The difference is that for Obama, the inexperience is at the top of the ticket, where we can least afford it. And Palin has way more executive experience that Obama.

I'll have to find out where to get a yard sign...
