An Alaskan woman is too good for the East Coast

Gov. Palin is running for VP on the John McCain GOP ticket.

What is good:

  • Alaska is essentially another nation, superior to the United States by being everything and more that the United States claims. This means she is a more progressive politician than anyone on the East Coast, by default.
  • Palin is so much more modern progressive than Hillary, the fate of having a woman nominated and it being Palin and not Hillary is a case of the right thing happening.
  • For Obama, this is a good thing because, in Lakoff terms, Obama has now framed the debate and imposed the talking points. Change, maverick rookie and youth are those points, and the GOP choice for VP is the GOP following Obama's lead.

What is bad:

  • Alaska is a more progressive nation, but that works as a disadvantage to an Alaskan that comes into the heart and pinnacle of power of Washington D.C. To an Alaskan, the White House is a foreign dystopia with a hall of mirrors Palin would likely not master in a million years.
  • If Palin was President, the very worst behind-the-scenes K Street Republicans would likely control things. I think Palin would hold values that would be as good for the country as Obama, but she would be a puppet led by evil handlers.

I wish it was an Obama/Palin ticket, as I bet many Americans do.

The USA has been a puppet state of the Republics of Texas and California since Nixon and Johnson shot Kennedy. I for one welcome our Alaskan liberators and look forward to the purging of Baathist elements from the Republican party.

From Wikipedia: Palin attended Wasilla High School in Wasilla, Alaska. The daughter of a science teacher, she and her father would sometimes wake at 3 a.m. to hunt moose before school. In 1984, Palin finished second in the Miss Alaska pageant. She is the first Alaskan governor not inaugurated in Juneau. She chose to have the ceremony held in Fairbanks.

More evidence that Alaska is another nation: Palin did inhale when marijuana was legal in Alaska. Her 19 year old son ships out to Iraq on September 11. Her husband is a union member, owns a small business and - like most Alaskans - is not registered with a political party.
