Governor Sarah Palin

Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska first came to my notice when I read this article by R. Albert Mohler this past May.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think that John McCain would pick her as his Vice Presidential running mate, but there were some who exhibited a prophetic bent:

Josh Harris

Draft Sarah Palin

As it says at the top of my blog, these are Republican Ramblings. I will use my position as owner of this spot in the blogosphere to engage in some of that right now:

What can be said about Governor Sarah Palin:

1) Not only does she talk pro-2nd Amendment, she shoots, is the Governor of a state that allows CCW without requiring a permit, is an NRA Life member, and has been hunting since a youngster (what a contrast to John Kerry's hunting 'experience" in the last election and to Obama and Biden's anti-gun stance.)

2) Not only is she pro-military, she has a son who is in the US Army Infantry and will soon deploy to Iraq.

3) Not only does she talk pro-life, she actually practices pro-life, and refused to abort her Down syndrome son, seeing him as a gift from God.

4) Not only does she talk against corruption, she has been actively cleaning it up.

5) Not only does she talk about government waste, she has been eliminating it.

6) Not only does she talk low taxes, she cuts taxes and returns taxpayers money to them.

7) It appears that she doesn't just talk about faith, she lives it out while not making it a big issue on the campaign trail.

Additionally, she has built and run a business with her native-American (Eskimo) husband of 20 years, and has more executive experience than either Obama or Biden. I think that she will hold her own against Biden in any debates, and will maintain her integrity and exhibit grace while doing so.

Looks like a winner to me.

(It doesn't hurt that she is not hard on the eyes either!)
