I think

I am going to make this paraphrased statement my rallying cry:

"Take issue with her, not her clothing."

Spoken like a true feminist. But I still like Sarah Palin, even if y'all don't.

And pssst, look here for a very astute criticism of the media's campaign "reporting," and what has the potential to happen in America because of it.

She certainly is personable but not ready for VP. She didn't even answer correctly as to what the role of a VP was. Was that not VP 101?

Some of us do like her. Very much. And she does know what the role is -- and is far more trustworthy than her opponent.

How's the ickiness today?

I never heard of that woman until McCain chose her as a running mate. Would I vote for them - NO! She lacks experience and I don't trust her. He's way too angry. I think Sarah Palin is probably a very nice person, would be a great friend, but she needs to go home and take care of her family. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Hope you feel better.

I like her too. She seems more "real" than the other candidates (even McCain sometimes).

I'd have her over for coffee, but her politics scare me. But that's why it's a free country and a great place to be -- we can all disagree and still knit together. That's the best part of it all.

I think she's tough, and most won't agree, but she's got more executive experience than the three other candidates combined. Her achievement with the gas line in Alaska is astounding. It's a shame that most people don't understand what an accomplishment that was. The other three talk about energy independence and she's walking the talk. but your comments are right on; it's sad that our nation's pundits resort to high school type attacks by poking fun at her clothing or suggesting her son isn't really her son. Geez.

That article poses every single question I have been asking since Obama announced his candidacy.

But of course our biased Media will never ask the tough questions to the Democrats.

You know what? Even though I don't like Palin and don't think she's remotely prepared to be VP, I wonder if anyone's ever reported on how much money McCain or Obama, or any other male presidential/vp candidate has spent on their clothes. I mean, all those suits can't be cheap, either, lol.

I agree with your rallying cry, it makes me sick when any female politician's wardrobe, makeup or hair style are the hot topic of discussion. Get over it! We don't hear when the men part their hair a different way or don a new tie, so let's move on.

I have issues with her politics, and it is quite a list, but I could care less about all this stupidity with her look or the 'scandal' of her family life.

Can't we please reach a point where we discuss the candidates based on their merits and their position on key issues rather than the same old attacks?

Well written pieces this week Jen, even if I only half agree with you! :)

Like you, I'm a Sarah Palin fan and was in AK when she was tapped for the GOP VP nomination. She's a breath of fresh air and is More Qualified to run government than the other three. She has experience, both local and state, with budgets, personnel, working with both parties and has experience from the local level up to state level. Plus, she's outside the Beltway; that alone is enough to make me vote for her.
