I usually try to keep my political convictions to myself. Some sort of psychological need to be liked.







Then last week I found myself suddenly mesmerized by the selection of Sarah Palin for John McCain's Vice Presidential Running Mate. Right away, I had all these opinions about it, and I had to do something.




Next thing you know, I'm reading everything I can find on the internet, and in the papers. I watch the conventions on TV. I stop listening to music in my car, now it's just election coverage. I want to know the gossip, the rumors, the accusations, the speeches, the finger-pointing, the opinions, the opposing opinions, the humor, the outrage. I can't get enough.







Sarah Palin is all I want to talk, read, hear, write and learn about. I am obsessed.







It's all I can think about.







And now...







OH MY GOD! LOOK!



When I met her last weekend, she thought I was hilarious:

Sarah's beautiful -- but the beauty queen on the right is the total package -- beautiful AND a beauty queen. You go girl!

I'm glad you didn't name your boys Track and Trig!

Vote for Mindy the trophy VP!

Cora said...

Too funny!!! Mike and I loved it! I'm not keeping this a secret, I'm votin' for McCain/Palin. Girl power!

Mindy said...

Oh Cora, just when I was starting to like you ;)

You should vote for whomever you believe serves your interests, but calling it girl power is the opposite of what I see happening here. Maybe it all looks different from way over in England.

WOW! The resemblance is uncanny! I've had my mind made up on "who" to vote for since the debacle of 2000. Hanging chads anyone?

There is a Democrat and a Republican living together in the Magda house! We avoid political discussions! Are you getting a button to wear and a bumper sticker?

Cora said...

Gosh, does the US media hate Palin? I am desperate to see a female in the White House (other than the First Lady). I personally find Palin full of spunk, which I respect more than someone who toes the party line. She doesn't frighten me, really, because at the end of day, I'm frighteningly conservative/insular myself. The media here treats her pretty fairly. But, then, they're used to women leading the nation.
