I think I might be able to explain some of Sarah Palin’s appeal. She’s the “American Idol” candidate.
There’s a reason “American Idol” gets such high ratings. People identify with the contestants. They think, Hey, that could be me up there on that show!
My problem is, I don’t want to be up there. I don’t want a vice president who is darned near good enough. I want a vice president who is better, wiser, well-traveled, has met world leaders, who three months ago had an opinion on Iraq. Someone who doesn’t repeat bald- faced lies about earmarks and the Bridge to Nowhere.
Five different schools in six years. What was that about?
And how can a politician her age have never have gone to Europe?
But some people like that. She’s never traveled to Europe, Asia, Africa, South America or Down Under? That makes her like them. She didn’t go to Harvard? Good for her!
I trust the American people will see through Palin, and save the Republic in November.
