I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, although I try to hold my own in most conversations. I do hate to admit though that when it comes to politics I rely strongly on Mark to keep me informed and make wise decisions. I can follow Sean Hannity a bit, he at least keeps my attention for a little while and I even read his book.
But I have to admit that I am fascinated by Sarah Palin. I can’t wait to read a biography on her.
Some reasons I find her incredibly interesting:
-she was a hockey mom
-she is from Alaska (who do you know that is FROM Alaska?)
-she has 5 kids (I come from a large family)
-she had a baby late in life and he has Down’s
-she does not come from a political background, yet has risen to vice-presidential candidate
-she is married to a man’s man
-she has made many political stands to reveal fraud and push for what is “right”
-she points at the camera and grits her teeth:)
-she is standing behind her 17 year old who is 5 months pregnant in the midst of this campaign when it very realistically could have been easier to just not run
-she was gutsy enough to sell a jet on ebay
-she actually is pretty and feminine in a “girl next door” kind of way
-she named her kids Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig
I would love to meet her. Not sure about all of it of course, but in many ways I’m thinking she rocks.
