Sarah Palin gives an impressive speech to the RNC. You can see the video here:
This is mostly an introductory speech since nobody knows who she is and how she supports the Republican ticket.
Most of Palin’s background seems to be to the far right and not conservative as McCain which scares the Jesus out of me.
Like most politicians, she lied about the “bridge to nowhere” claiming that she did not want the funding. Yet, the Boston Herald reports that:
The Alaska governor campaigned in 2006 on a build-the-bridge platform, telling Ketchikan residents she felt their pain when politicians called them “nowhere.” They’re still feeling pain today in Ketchikan, over Palin’s subsequent decision to use the bridge funds for other projects – and over the timing of her announcement, which they say came in a pre-dawn press release that seemed aimed at national news deadlines.
What other surprises are in store for us if McCain gets elected and Palin becomes President if he kicks the bucket while in office.
I certainly don’t like the fact that she’s a firm supporter of Creationism taught in schools and thinks that our two wars are the “will of God.”
Yes, Sarah Palin gave an excellent speech at the RNC last night. But giving a good speech without substance does not make her qualified as national candidate.
