GMA: The Elite 6, Sarah Palin’s Closest Friends

Good Morning America featured an interview by ABC’s Lisa Fletcher of several of the Vice Presidential nominee’s closest friends self-dubbed the “Elite 6”, which includes Sarah and five other Alaskan moms.

I think this video speaks volumes of what type of person Sarh Palin is in her personal life. Her friends say she “lives on caffine and white chocolate, hates cats, and is as honest as the day is long”.

This video was originally titled “3 of 4 Friends Won’t Admit Voting for Palin.” Of course, what would one expect on You Tube? I couldn’t find another one just yet so, I thought I’d correct the perspective on this one by reposting it here. Just ignore all the liberal propaganda garbage at the end.

What I find most admirable and telling about Sarah is the diversity of her inner circle of friends. Two the four women interviewed are are pro-choice. One admits to never voting for a republican in a presidential election. Another states that she will be voting for McCain and Palin, while the others are undecided or at least want to keep their decision personal. I wonder if Obama’s inner circle includes any pro-lifers or Republicans?

They all seem very happy to see thier good friend as John McCain’s running mate and cherish thier diversity.

Republican Women, Stop Watching Oprah Winfrey


Oprah Winfrey has just released a statement stating that Gov. Sarah Palin, the republican Vice Presidential nominee, will not appear on the Oprah Winfrey show.

If you’re a republican woman, don’t help Oprah use her celebrity to help Obama. Stop watching her show today, and show her that you do not appreciate her bias. Write to her at Harpo Studios, and tell her if she is going to cover politics that she should cover both sides or you’ll take your advertising dollars elsewhere.

HER STATEMENT: “The item in today’s Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.”

Oprah’s statement was in response to a story on the Drudge Report earlier in the day, stating that certain staff at Harpo Studios were in disagreement on whether to book Gov. Palin on the show. Barak Obama was a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show prior to announcing his intention on running for the presidency. Ms. Winfrey has publicly endorsed Obama and actively campaigns with him.

In my opinion, the reason that she claims to not want to use her show as a platform for politics, is that she has already made her choice, he has already made his appearance, and she understands that she would have to give (at least the illusion) of equal time and coverage on her show or she could face backlash from her primarily female audience.

Palin would be a great guest and is an inspiration to all American women regardless of party affiliation. To host a guest as historically significant as the first woman republican nominee for Vice President, Oprah should put aside her party bias and invite Sarah Palin as a guest. To do otherwise, appears racist or at a minimum politically biased, either of which is certain to draw away large numbers of her viewers. If she truly cares about her female audience, she owes it to herself and her audience to book Sarah Palin on her show.

Just for good measure, she should also be allowed to host her close friend Barak again, so as to not appear unfair. Actually, I just don’t want to hear the whining from the left.

Fred Thompson – The Courage and Service of John McCain

Fred Thomson give a remarkable speech at the Republican National convention. He attacks the liberal media for getting their coverage of McCain’s VP pick, Gov. Sarah Palin. Fred continues by telling a heartfelt story about McCain’s time as a POW in the Hanoi Hilton. He also points out Obama’s inexperience by calling him, “The most inexperienced candidate to ever run for the presidency.”

What a empassioned speech! Go Fred!!!

Why Pick Palin?

McCain/Palin 2008

McCain/Palin 2008

I waited for the media leak (of which there was none to speak of) all night. Well, actually I only waited until about 2:00am. Alas, around 9:00am I catch wind of the first reports of the McCain VP pick and my first reaction is…Who? Palin, Palin the name is vaguely familiar but I can’t place it. Alaska, oh yeah, now I remember. This is that governor that is pushing to drill in ANWR. Now I’m thinking, “so far, so good”.

I had to let it sink in for a while. Why would McCain pick Palin. Virtually unknown outside of her home state until recently, and not a very experienced politician either, I struggled to put it together. Obama likes to say John McCain doesn’t “get it”. Well, on the contrary, I think he not only gets it, but gets it right.Governor Palin is the perfect choice!

Just as Obama chose an experienced Washington insider partly to augment his own lack of experience, McCain is off-setting his significant experience by choosing a running mate unfamiliar with the inner dealings of Washington. Obama missed the boat by not picking Hillary Clinton as his Vice President. She garnered a lot of votes and it would have most certainly built a massive machine to be confronted in November. In addition, the first Black/Female ticket would have diffused any attempt by McCain to do just what he did, choosing a woman as a running mate to siphon off disgruntled Hillary supporters. Perhaps, just perhaps, they will find Sarah Palin a more suitable choice for leadership not only because of her gender, but due to her common sense policies for the American family.A conservative with the bravery to confront unethical and wasteful spending who is able to reach across the aisle to get things done, is also just the type of leader America needs in the White House.

A McCain/Palin ticket seems to have just the right amount of moderate conservatism to win in November. Her age and family life also has a lot of appeal. She is at a stage in life where many Americans find themselves today and will be able to relate. As a father and husband close to 40, I can tell you that her story closely resembles mine and that of many voters, Democrats, Independents, and Republican alike. She understands what it means to raise a family with high moral standards and a good education in today’s society. She knows what it means, with our shrinking paychecks and inflated grocery bills, to have to put $50 in the tank each week, pay for health care, and what the rising cost of goods do to the middle class family. McCain and Palin will put America first. They will work to reduce spending and taxes, reduce our dependence of foreign oil, and ensure government reform, so that American families can reduce the burden they are experiencing from a struggling economy and housing market. As a lifelong NRA member Palin will fight to protect our second amendment rights so we can protect our persons, property, and family. She will work to reform government and upset the status quo in Washinton, placing country first, and cronism out the door.
The McCain/Pladin ticket has the ability to transform american trust in government and the Republican party. I would like to learn more about this “Wow” pick from Alaska. But, so far I like what I’ve learned. Yep, I think John McCain “get’s it”. And I think a McCain/Palin ticket is exactly how he shows it.
