I spoke too soon about refusing to vote this election.
I will vote for Sarah Palin. I’m completely fed up with John McCain, but he chose a running mate that I would trust to be president. She’s pro-life (obviously – five children!), she’s pro-business, and she screams authenticity. Until today she’s never even crossed into my radar – which I think is a good thing. Maybe the best thing, since it implies she’s not an attention whore begging for votes and adulation. She looks positively unstudied. She’s natural, beautiful, tough. I haven’t seen that kind of natural-ness ever. Hillary was positively straining against her reins the whole time she’s been in the public eye. Obama is a moron. Even John McCain is a boring idiot. But Palin? I’d vote for her for president, but I’ll have to settle for electing her to vice president for now.
I think this is the first positive thing John McCain has done since he announced his candidacy.
