Am I the only one?

I feel so disappointed in the GOP vice presidential candidate.

She's not a bad person, but surely we could have found someone more seasoned than Palin.

And it isn't such a bad thing that she's been found to have abused her power, albeit not illegally. We really need someone willing to push the limits, something that I think Cheney does rather well.

I don't even mind her hauling around the baby in the belly pack, although I don't imagine all that close contact with the crowds is good for the kid.

It just seems to me that she was chosen simply for being a conservative woman. She reminds me of some of the fluffy males that have been offered in earlier elections. Dan Quayle comes to mind. John Edwards, another, only for the Democrats.

How serious is she? And why is it so difficult to find a tough, no-nonsense person for Vice President?

I think she is the right choice! She tough and a fighter.

Being one of the smitten, I totally disagree with my precious blog daughter re Sarah, but check out Scott Ott's "Troopergate: The Best Thing to Happen to McCain-Palin" for a truly original take on Governor Palin's alleged abuse of power.

Given a choice between our beauty queen Alaskan governor and a rhetoric-spewing, tongue tripping stumblebum senator, I prefer the former. I just want to see some really tough stuff emanate from her.

There is no contest between our seasoned, battle- and prison-hardened John and the newbie ideologue Barack. My vote goes to the war hero.

That will, of course, include Sarah Sidekick, and should give her plenty of time to strut her stuff and win me over.
