Pennsylvania Will Love the Palins

I do have comments on the breaking story about Gov. Eliot Spitzer, but for now I'd just like to say that it was shameful for him to haul his wife out there -- apparently seeking some kind of public sympathy. I have always regarded Eliot Spitzer as a self-righteous phony. His wife and three daughters have my total emotional and spiritual support. We need to get people like him out of office and people like Gov. Palin in. The Republican Governors Association has called on him to resign. Sarah is a member of that Association.

Sarah Palin, dressed for speaking outside in Alaska weather. I'm delighted by the many visitors I'm getting from Alaska, including several visits from Wasilla, Sarah's hometown. I'll be writing tomorrow about why Sarah, who's under serious consideration as John McCain's running mate would herself make an excellent President of the United States. In a site dedicated to Pennsylvania, I believe Sarah is someone who would have tremendous appeal in our state. She reminds me a lot of my friend Diana Lynn Irey, who ran in 2006 against the odious John Murtha. We need people in national office who are curious, ambitious, smart, and pillars of integrity. Sarah fits that definition. We're talking Mt. Rushmore material here. Come back tomorrow to find out more about Sarah.

If you're interesting now in learning more about Sarah and her career, read the Wikipedia article about her. Wikipedia has a great picture of Sarah as a point guard on her high school's state campionship basketball team.

Picture of Alaska Governor Sarah Heath Palin and her husband Todd. The children are, from left, Piper (age 6 now), Willow (age 13 now), and Bristol (age 17 now). Not pictured is son Track, who's 18 and a soldier in the U.S. Army Infantry. He and his best friend enlisted on 9/11/2007.
Gov. Palin is 7 months pregnant with their fifth child. Increasingly, she is mentioned as a strong possibility for the vice-presidential slot on the ticket with John McCain.

What does she say about her running for national office? ""I'm very confident that a pregnant woman should not and doesn't have to be prohibited from doing anything, including running for vice president. Or working in the home or out of the home. The world is our oyster also, whether carrying a baby or not." --Sarah Palin

I agree.
