Sarah conversando con Hillary

In July 2007, Palin was heralded in the media as being the most popular governor in the United States, with an approval rating often in the 90s. An August 2007 poll had her approval rating at 84%, with 5% disapproving.

A May 2008 poll showed her continuing to maintain her approval ratings in the mid 80s, the highest of any elected official in American politics. [...]

Governor Palin's administration is currently suing the US Department of the Interior over the recent listing of the Alaskan polar bear as a "threatened" species, due to the perceived decline of the bears' natural habitat, the arctic ice shelf. Palin points out that the population of polar bears has increased over the last thirty years, and that Alaska already has protections for the polar bear under the Marine Mammal Protection Act. She also fears that the new regulation could potentially stifle the development of Alaska's vast oil and gas resources, which is a priority in her administration.

Sin olvidar :

Palin's first veto was used on legislation that would have barred the state from granting benefits to gay state employees and their partners. In effect, her veto granted State benefits to same-sex couples.

Si va con Mac en la boleta, no va a ser victoria, va a ser landslide.


  1. y qué bien agarra la tararira

  2. Luis, realmente no entiendo, ¿que te hace pensar que una agenda anti-gay lleve a buenos resultados?

    Aclaro, se trata de sumar y no de restar.

    ¿Estás de acuerdo?


  3. Daniel, que te hace pensar que Luis emitio opinion alguna y que Palin tiene una agenda anti-gay?

  4. Here’s an important piece of advice: If it looks like it’s going to be McCain/Palin anyway (and that should be a “no brainer” for Team McCain), McCain should announce NOW or VERY SOON, rather than later towards the convention. There’s currently a growing chorus for Obama/Hillary (as VP) ticket (in fact the Dems are likely aware of the Palin phenomenon). If the GOP waits while movement for Hillary as VP grows — even worse until after it is solidified that Hillary will/could be VP pick — selecting Palin will be portrayed by Dems/liberal media more as a reaction by GOP selecting its own female (overshawdoing Palin’s own remarkable assets), rather than McCain taking the lead on this. Selecting Palin now or early (contrary to the punditocracy) will mean McCain will be seen as driving the course of this campaign overwhelmingly, and the DEMS will be seen as merely reacting. And, there’s absoultely no down-side to this because even if Hillary is a no-go as VP for Obama, the GOP gains by acting early. McCain the maverick. Palin the maverick. Do it now!

    There’s no reason, and actually substantial negative, in McCain waiting to see what the Dems do first insofar as his picking Palin as VP, because, no matter who Obama picks, Palin is by far (and I mean far) the best pick for McCain and the GOP, especially in this time of GOP woes. The GOP can be seen as the party of real ‘change’ (albeit I hate that mantra, change, change, bla bla), while not really having to change from GOP core conservative values, which Palin more than represents.

    In light of the current oil/energy situation, as well as the disaffected female Hillary voters situation, and growing focus on McCain’s age and health, Palin is more than perfect — now.

    (Perhaps Team McCain is already on to this.)

  5. There’s been noted buzz of late on rising GOP star Louisiana Gov Bobby Jindal as a McCain prospective Veep. Certainly Jindal is more than very good, However, I believe there’s some “strategerie” going on here. The “real” beneficiary of the Jindal talk is the other rising GOP star, Alaska Gov Sarah Palin. Palin’s got everything that Jindal has (new/exciting, wildly popular, ethics and spending reformer, core conservative etc.) and more — mother of 5 w/remarkable bio, she’s 8 yrs older than Jindal, Alaska energy issue, and set to garner the disenfranchised female Hillary voter (I don’t believe Dem leaders can dump Obama).

    Getting Jindal’s name out first — at Team McCain’s BBQ for instance — sets the stage for the obvious choice, Palin. For example, albeit Rush Limbaugh introduced Palin’s name, and later Jindal’s as good Veep choices, of late Rush has been praising the name of Jindal while on his very same shows discussing at great length the frustrated female Hillary voter and the global warming hysteria/need for energy development, without mentioning Palin’s name as the obvious beneficiary of those two issues. Rush walks a fine line, introducing Palin, yet can’t, at least yet, reiterate much, knowing that his praises may be counter-productive to many a swing, moderate and/or formerly Dem voter (who’s against Obama and switching to McCain). Moreover, while I feel that Palin has more real accomplishment, experience and qualification than Obama (and Hillary combined, albeit w/Obama the bar is pretty low), the only potential argument against Palin is she’s a newbie to the national scene. By having Jindal out there first as a VP prospect “passing” the “experience” and “new to the national scene” test, implicitly passes Palin as well. (For that matter Palin’s got as much if not more experience and accomplishment than Florida Gov Crist who’s only been Gov for 2 yrs — and the media has been touting Crist as a VP prospect.)

    That’s my thinking at least.

  6. Thanks Ted... Jindal was my choice as well, because I was (no excuses for that) unaware of Palin's remarkable profile and accomplishments.

    Any blog where we can read you ?

  7. Oh yeah, that’s sooooo cool! And mature. Can’t wait to see the attacks on Obama's private email account and photo album!
