Thank goodness the RNC has left Saint Paul and, I kid you not, there has been a chill in the air here ever since they came. It's like the Dementors were in town.
I have been watching the hype over the Republican running mate choice and I think I need to clear a few things up.
1.) Let's not say what a "Maverick" and bold GOP idea it was to have a woman for a running mate in a presidential election. I believe DEMs Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro covered that ground at least 24 years ago.
2.) Let's not say Palin will capture the women's vote. We are voting on issues not hormones. As a woman voter I am insulted that anyone would think I would vote for someone just because of their gender. It is patronizing.
3.) Let's not try to usurp the name Party of Change without giving any examples of change. The RNC was big on insults and small on issues. I can tell where Barack Obama wants lead the country by the specfics in his speech but not McCain. He spoke a lot about what needed to happen but not his method of making it happen.
Let's here more about details and less about pony tails.
