if you follow the whole line, they put Palin in as a last resort to counter the backlash from conservatives in the party for choosing !McCain. McCain never had a chance, when Palin was noinated they jumped into the lead all the way until the day McCain suspended his campaign to vote for the financial bailouts. A week later they were down by 10 points. Palin was an unknown at the time, but her record was clean and her popularity was high in Alaska. Palin is not from an elite family, her and her hubby made $100,000 a year on fishing and pipeline work by Todd, she is an everyday American, and has a couple of school teacher parents.
She went from school board to city council to mayor to state oil and resource commission to Governor fighting the establishment GOP all the way.
Let's look at the politically connected recent VP list and compare.
Nixon VP for Eisenhower
Johnson for Kennedy
Humphrey by Ascention
Spiro Agnew for Nixon (resigned)
Rockefeller by Ascention for Ford
Mondale for Carter
George HW Bush for Reagan
Dan Quale for Bush1
AlGore for Clinton
Dick Cheney for Bush2
Joe Biden for Obama
All politically connected families and all Ultra Weathy Elitist, there is no way Sarah Palin from the Alaska fits the format. If you truly believe McCain was in it to win it, I have all kinds of bridges to sell you for gold. Palin was put in to take her down and the conservative movement at the same time, a truly conservative woman, who could have children, be married, be pro life, be everyday and still become governor. The brainchild of one commie Bill Kristol who never met or talked to Palin before and abruptly dumped her a year after the election after he instigated the media crucifixation of Palin in the media over the crosshairs or bullseyes on a 2010 mid term election map from a SarahPac website. Problem was it backfired. Palin actually caused McCain to lead in the polls, she had 50,000 to 100,000 crowds at her rally's (equal to Obama's) while McCain was getting 3000. Eventually McCain's own handlers helped throw her under the bus, giving her wrong info for interviews and setting her up for that Couric interview without the classic pre screen questions information ALL candidates get before agreeing to being interviewed.
All Intersting stuff for a Governor who was never in the national spotlight prior and on top of that the first woman GOP nominee for VP. Let's see, let's forever try and set what the people think a woman running should be.
Butch hair, pant suits, a wimpy husband, pro-choice, anti-gun, ugly, a woman who got there on the back of a man, think Hillary, oh and most importantly someone who embraces feminism as defined by the liberal left and establishment GOP.
But what does the so called Pro Woman left do, they focus on Palin's body with leg and body shots, they focus on clothing, they focus on shoes, they create look-a-like photos of Palin in Bikinis shooting machine guns on the net, they create porns with lookalikes and make it national news, they focus on everything they supposedly have fought against other people doing. Why? because they absolutely hate the idea of a traditional married women that can have children, cook dinner, look great and still be affective in government and by the way, click off a few rounds with her gun. Oh and they absolutely hate when Palin actually practices what she preaches, how disturbing for the pro murding abortion fanatics to have to go up against a Pro Life woman who actually acts on what she believes in and doesn't abort her Down's Syndrome baby. We don't want young girls looking up to such a person like Palin, they can only look up to women like the fantastic Ambassador killing Hillary.
That's exactly why they hate her.
Rand Paul backed Romney fairly early, Sarah Palin never campaigned for Romney or even endorsed him. At midnight, on election day she posted on her Facebook that we need to beat Obama. Other than Ron Paul, the only other big time politician to not formally endorse Romney.
