World Net Daily and Sarah Palin Read My Blog

World Net Daily and Sarah Palin stole my idea.  While I probably should be angered at the plagiarism. I am more honored.  I can’t believe that such a small little blog has such big influence.

World Net Dailey is reporting the same thing I did on Monday.  That Sarah Palin is helping out NBC, SNL, and Tina Fey.  I am impressed that my news has such a far reach.

So, now we know that this is important that we help out the struggling network, this struggling show, and this struggling comedian. Americans everywhere do you duty.  We must help McCain and Palin to win.

Just another reminder, I won’t be voting for McCain.  I can’t do it after the bailout.  It was the wrong thing to do, so voting for anyone who voted for the bill is the wrong thing to do.

Why McCain Palin Must Win

I won’t ask you to vote for someone I wont’ vote for.  But I feel that it is imperitive that this pair must win this election.  It is for our country’s health that I believe this is true.

There are $700 billion reasons I will not be voting for McCain next month.  I can’t support anyone who wants to turn this country into a socialist state.  I am so serious about this non-McCain vote that I have sign the 110Amen Pledge.  And I hope that you will to.

That said, I must state that I feel it is an imperative that John McCain and Sarah Palin with the election.  And it is for one simple reason.  We need comedy in hard times.  We need to laugh as times get rough.  And since we can’t seem to control congress, we need something to keep our minds off of the demise of our constitutional freedoms.

Think about it.  How many Barack Obama jokes can Dave Letterman and Jay Leno do.  Honestly, I think that they are done.  Joe Biden just isn’t funny.  There really isn’t anything about him that makes you want to laugh.

However, Sarah Palin is great fodder for the comedians.  People we need to do this for Tina Fey.  She is a struggling comedian whose fame has be greatly increased thanks to Palin’s nomination.

McCain won’t provide as much fodder, but we can have more fun with him than we can have with Obama.

We need to do this for America.  I know that I am encouraging you to do that which I won’t but people, this is important for America.  We need this.

Vote for good Comedy.  Vote for laughs.  Don’t vote for Obama/Biden.

America needs a good laugh.

Convention Thoughts: McCain

Well, like Sarah Palin, I thought that McCain’s speech started out fairly slow.  It just didn’t seem to have much going for it.  ABC’s pundits agreed with me.  they said that it was like two different speeches.

Because when he was done talking about his service for our country, he started to get into it.  He hit hard on many issues.  Talking about issues the way that I want him to.  Tough on immigration, open on energy, and limiting the control of government.

However, to be honest with you, looking at McCain’s past, I find it hard to believe.  Palin as his righ-hand woman makes me want to believe him.  However, I am afraid, that this is just talk.

I believe that he is a Maverick.  I believe that he is going to take on the “good old boys” in the Republican Party.  But I am not sure that he will fight in the direction that I want him to.

Right now, I am still leaning McCain.  I will probably still vote for him in November.  But he has two month to prove himself.

I appreciated that McCain’s speech was less Obama focused than the others that I heard.  It shows that he isn’t focused as much of fighting Obama, but about winning the race.  This really speaks volumes about the character the Fred Thompson showed us he had.

I will be watching these next couple of months, and I will be making and informed vote.  Whether it is for McCain or for someone else.  We know that it won’t be for Obama.

Convention Thoughts: Fred and Joe

Okay, I have to admit, I didn’t watch any of the Democratic National Convention.  I just didn’t think that I could palate any of the rhetoric they are famous for.  Actually, I was pretty immersed in watching several DVDs that I had on my list to watch.

But for some strange reason, I find myself with no DVDs and extra time to watch the Repbulican National Convention.  So, last night I listened th President Bush, Fred Thompson, and Joe Lieberman.

President Bush was mediocre.  He really isn’t a great speaker.  And I can’t remember much about what he said.  I actually remember more from Laura Bushes interview on NBC that I do from President Bush’s speech.

However, the real heart of last night’s speeches were the talks by Fred Thompson and Joe Lieberman.  If it were a competition for best speech my award would be given to Fred Thompson.  He very respectfully told the story of John McCain’s service to our country and set up his character.

The best line from Thompson talk, and for the whole televised evening was this: “Now, being a POW certainly doesn’t qualify anyone to be president, but it does reveal character. My friends — (cheers, applause) — this is the kind of character that civilizations from the beginning of our history have sought in their leaders — (cheers, applause) — strength, courage, humility, wisdom, duty, honor.”

While I am somewhat bothered by what appears to be the over emphasis on McCain’s POW experience, Thompson set it up in a way of reverence and respect, that I couldn’t help but open up and try and understand who McCain is.  While I couldn’t help but look at Thompson and wish that he were the nominee because of his eloquence and his political ideals, he sold the McCain bill very well.

Lieberman was a great follow up.  He talked about how the best vote isn’t down party lines, but for what is right for America.  This poses a great question, and something that we need to ask ourselves every election.  I wonder what we would say if it were the other side saying it about our nominee.

I don’t agree with a lot of the political views of Lieberman, but I enjoyed his speech very much.  He didn’t do a great job at convincing me that McCain is my president, but I feel that he might have done a good job for the independent voter who hasn’t made up her mind.

Overall, it was a good night.  I am glad that I had the time to watch it.  I am excited to here Sarah Palin’s talk tonight.  I have seen her speak when she was selected as McCain running mate, and I was very impressed.  I suspect that she will do likewise today.
