Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Palin flaunts her family
To the families of special needs children all across this country, I have a message for you. For years, you have sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters and I pledge to you, if we are elected you will have a friend, an advocate in the White House.
Has the White House been occupied by enemies of families with special needs children? Having sat through months of the McCain campaign ripping from various Democratic campaigns and tactics, Im puzzled as to why they didnt jump on the idea of an introductory video for Gov. Sarah Palin.
She could have introduced her children, parents and high school sweetheart in a video and gotten right to the business of explaining what makes her so qualified to be vice president of the United States of America. Thats what we want to know. We dont need to know why her PTA and hockey mom experience is more suited to the Oval Office than Sen. Obamas community organizer experience.
(continued) I wasnt too interested in hearing about how effectively she ran a remote 12.4 square mile town of 5,469 people (2000 census) for two terms. I know very involved housewives and they barely have time to put dinner on the table while running their children around. So how was Gov. Palin running a state and cooking dinner while keeping up with hockey games? And if this is her stance, how does she anticipate aiding in the running of the country? Sorry, Mr. President, I cant leave the country this week, my son is in a hockey tournament and I have teacher conferences in the morning.
She cant play both sides. Not only is it not believable, its not possible to do all at once.
