Will Sarah Palin Boost McCain's Chances for Victory?



Sarah Palin is the Neo-con solution to two things:
A)-She gives the McCain legend of womanizing a kick in the panties (or does it) and it hopes to cool the rumors of his "C" word description of his spouse. It also drops the average age of the duo from 72 years of age to 58 years of age; Palin is 44 years old, three years younger than Barack Obama.

B)-More importantly to the Neo-cons is the double-switcheroo of two people they can barely tolerate. McCain who is not one of their poster boys for a Neo-con leadership bent on making their philosophy a more sadistic form of fascism.

Sarah Palin is the former mayor of Wasilla, who destroyed her opponent, a former governor in a primary, and then dispatched a second former governor in the general election.

She jump-started a plan to give every resident $1,200 from the state's Black-gold laden treasury to offset high fuel prices, and shepherded a project to build a natural gas pipeline. So far, GOP analysts have been dumbstruck by Palin's ascent onto the national political scene. They say that her aura of fearlessness and her reform efforts are energizing a new era. After the scandalous emergence of what many feel is a WASP MAFIA in the White House and Congress, her energy and her glamour are most refreshing. One thing it will avert. With her as VP, the fascists are not likely to assassinate McCain. Moreover, don't think McCain does not know that.

Sarah has opposed the Republican Old Guard in Alaska and has nailed the oil companies over taxes and gas leases. She is not your basic Neo-con corrupt, gangster, politician, and she is quite lovely.

She is currently under an investigation by the Republican-controlled legislature charging that she may have ordered the firing of Alaska's public safety commissioner because he would not fire her former brother-in-law as a state trooper. And if that confuses you, you are not alone. The rumor is that allegedly, in 2005, before Palin ran for office, the Palin family accused [ex-brother-in-law] Wooten of drinking a beer while in his patrol car, illegal hunting, firing a Taser at his 11-year-old stepson and threatened to kill Sarah Palin's father.

The move to McCain's campaign, especially if they win, would solve two problems, delver her out of the governorship of a state which politics have dwarfed those of New York and Chicago. The alleged corruption is beginning to take on record proportions, in the minds of some.

It is an understatement to say Palin's selection shocked many Republican officials. The last thing anyone expected was a young, attractive, former beauty queen, who just delivered her fifth child, as McCain's running mate.

McCain passed over several high on the VP shortlist of Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney among them.

At 44, Palin is a generation younger that Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware, Barack Obama's running mate was born 20 November 1942 on the Democratic ticket, making him 68 years old, making their average age of only six months younger than that of, at 57.7 years of age against 58 years of age for McCain/Palin. And if that means anything, it is news to me, but I love to make fun of the news pundits who print that kind of nonsense.

In addition it adds a female, allowing, as unbelievable as it sounds, the Republicans to break the female VP barrier ages after Geraldine Anne Ferraro (born August 26, 1935) was the Democrat, best known as the first female Vice Presidential candidate representing a major American political party.

Since Governor Palin is three years Obama's younger than Obama, her selection undercuts the comments by the Republicans that Obama lacks experience in foreign policy and defense.

Recall now, that Biden was the center of a plagiarism charge when he tried to run years ago. Recall also his rather uppity personality and his defense of rich people like him in the Republican Party not bad people, just because they are rich. My attitude toward the rich people in either party is not that they are rich but how and what they did to get that way and that I do not believe that anyone should get rich working for the government.

My question is simple and straightforward, but long:
Is McCain's choice of a no-Neo-con icon, attractive, younger female, who differs from him on drilling in the Alaskan Wild Life Sanctuaries, she favors drilling, and her stand against abortion, and yet a rogue to the Neo-con empire building hopes, going to snatch votes away from the Democrats?

Shorter and easier, Will 44 year old Sarah Palin, make McCain's candidacy more attractive to women and moderate democratic voters?
