My dad is a true Red White and Blue Conservative Republican (and very ex long ago Democrat). when I hear of John McCain's pick for Vice President I like it but I did want to get my dad's opinion. His initial opinion was very positive. I just saw him this weekend and asked him how he felt now about the McCain/Palin ticket:
She is the type of woman that all real men like. She is independent, smart, knowledgeable, a leader and a hunter. What is there not to like about Sarah Palin?
She wears her balls on her chest.
There you go. He then went on to explain that the 'balls' comment was in relation to many of the Republicans in Congress who seem to have no balls for fighting the Democrats on earmarks, corruption, drilling (Think party of 10/20). Well basically much of anything. Well, there are a couple pro-porkbusters Congressmen out there but they are the exception. However, as a group they are a big disappointment.
As it so happens, my mom also likes her and is impressed that she managed to accomplish all that she has while raising four children with a recent fifth addition. She should know because she took on raising four children as a full-time job.
