Palin: Obama's, Biden's Worst Nightmare

"Biden is a windbag. Sarah Palin is a breath of fresh air."

On the Plain choice: I had a short post up at 2:30 a.m. that said I had information (from Sharon and one other) that Gov. Palin and her two teen-age daughters and perhaps others had flown from Anchorage to Dayton, where she would be named Friday as McCain's running mate. The story came from people who put two-and-two together, and the media was still falling all over itself at 11 a.m. this morning.

Charles Krauthammer said at 11 McCain should choose Fred Thompson. Good God!

At that point, I said to my wife we already had enough old white guys (Biden, McCain) and we needed a woman, preferably Sarah . I went to sleep Friday morning believing it was Sarah and woke up to her picture on the screen on FOX (and others).

I never bought the Campaign's decoy statement that, well, everybody on the list was flying in (Romney, Pawlenty, Huckabee, the Easter Bunny, Peter Rabbit). It made no sense, but many reporters bought it. Did they believe McCain was going to have a parade of also-rans?

The national media -- generally a bunch of lazy oafs -- was mad on Friday because nobody told them first. Charles Cameron of FOX was the only one early this a.m. who did a process of elimination and came up with Sarah. Then, the other people at FOX and CNN (and the idiots at MSNBC) dropped the ball.

They thought it couldn't be Sarah because she wasn't on their list . . . and so how could he dare to nominate this (wonderful) woman they knew nothing about. Amazing.

When she gave the speech -- she had given others the media had ignored -- everyone knew immediately "how" McCain could select her. With the speech and that amazing family -- the working-class husband, the beautiful, unintimidated children -- Sarah blew everyone out of the water.

Gee, where's she been?" Good question. Sometimes the very best things are invisible even though they're right in front of us.

Sarah is Barack Obama's worst nightmare. She is an ethical person. She is extremely tough physically, psychologically, and spiritually. She will beat Biden up very badly. He's a windbag, and she's a breath of fresh air.

Biden got 9,000 votes in the Primary. Mrs. Clinton got 18 million. Go figure.
