I am reading the blogs about the Biden announcement. I am listening to the media's reaction to the Obama convention speech. It's clear to me now that the liberals' excitement for displacing Republicans from national office has clouded any degree of reason or rational thought. The exuberance over the past two weeks is unbridled and more importantly, unsubstantiated. I hear a lot of hyperbole. I keep looking past all the adjectives and see very few action verbs or even specific nouns here. I do see a lot of dollar $ign$ though.
Why is everyone so excited? What are these guys planning on doing besides proclaiming their personal Hope for Change and the need to Change our Hope?
I see now that the Democratic Party could run a turgid dog's penis and a pine cone encrusted in used cat litter as the presidential ticket and the response would be roughly the same -- blind enthusiasm with lips puckered.
That being said, I haven't been thrilled about John McCain either. He misses the mark on some of the key planks in a Conservative's platform. The boards sound creaky at any rate. So even traditionally conservative sources have been skeptical about the support he will receive. One article even outlined how government was bound to get bigger and more unwieldly regardless of which party won the White House.
But even though I've heard the name mentioned before, I hear it first in detail on the Laura Ingraham Show (who is as flawed as any talk show host but really hitting her stride in the past month and a half). I hear things about this prospective V.P. that I really like because they connect with my personal concerns, my own conservative agenda, and most of all, they seem genuine. She seems genuine. And I am sure the liberal slander machine of the DNC is swinging in to gear as I type this. They'll be desperate to paint a different picture and they'll find something that resonates with self-loathing liberals but you can't argue with the data. Her actions and words before this moment are what they are. I am, at this moment, feeling sincere and all new excitement about Sarah Palin being the V.P. on the ticket. And she's far easier on the eyes than the other three fleshy headed, unripe and over-ripened, supermarket political products we'll be staring at for the next three months.
