Funny Thing, this Politics...

There's a thing called the "Monday Morning Quarterback". You know the guy (or gal)...they sit in the office or at the shop (wherever you find yourself during the work week) and tell you what they would have done differently, in the "game" the night before.

It's no different in politics. We all fancy ourselves to be politically savvy, and most of us like to claim at least some expertise in most matters political.

Imagine my surprise (feigned, of course), when everybody came out on Friday morning past, touting how McCain picking Palin was a stroke of genius, how they would have picked her if they had known a little more about her, etc.

Monday Morning Quarterbacks.

Normally, I would be calling them out, saying that they were jumping on the bandwagon, now that the pick has been made public. (For the record, I and a limited few others have been literally SCREAMING the name of Sarah Palin since February)

Instead, I offer these words...What took you so long?

Welcome to the club! And, we're glad to have you!

Now, the real work begins. Gov. Palin will now be under not only the scrutiny of the DNC, but also the main stream media (with whom Obamessiah has become their personal savior). The negative propaganda that they will be floating out there will be filled with lies and conjecture. We need to have our talking points be concise and in order, and our defenses valid and firm. No whining "it's not fair".

What we need to project in our VeeP candidate is strength without seeming bitchy, compassion without seeming too "soft". We need to perpetuate the notion that our working mom is not going to neglect her family, rather will be working in concert with the support of her family to be the best mom to her kids (which to me, is already quite apparent).

To reiterate from a post I made last week, welcome to the band! The wagon is big enough for all of us. Let's work hard so we can stand up on November 4th, at 8 p.m. and sing in our loudest voices, "Hail to the Chief", and (screw the rock group "Heart") "Barracuda"!

We'll have earned it!
And here is the rest of it.

You are absolutely correct. I never saw it coming. I thought we were doomed. I had resolved to go work at the grass roots level and help to build a conservative movement from the ground up. One that would build a base and grow from there. I am still going to do that, but this Palin thing is a big boost and congratulations to those who worked to bring it about.
