We can discuss Sarah Palin’s ability (or lack thereof) to carry a position of national leadership based on the issues (i.e., the economy, foreign policy, employment, health care). But that is not this blog’s metiér.
Sarah Palin in March 2008 – Can’t find specific date, but she’s ostensibly 7 months pregnant during this clip. Palin talks about Title IX (doesn’t this seem a rather un-Republican piece of legislation?), gender and age discrimination, and says she has “a bunch of kids” but does not mention that she is pregnant. She also sits with her legs crossed and leans forward quite a bit—something most women 7 months pregnant would have difficulty doing—but that’s speculation. And this is a blog. Get over it. After it was announced that Palin would be McCain’s running mate, the interviewer says Palin called her after the interview to say that she was pregnant but that she wanted to announce it in Alaska.
For those who need an emotional lift: The ‘Alaska Women Reject Palin’ rally is huge! Watch the video.
For those who need a laugh: The Sarah Palin Name Generator – what your name would be if Sarah were your mother. I am Rust Mustang (all three of my first names) or HA HA! Loin Falcon (my first two names without putting in my second middle name which is ‘Christian’).
