The McCain-Palin Ticket and Other News

I was very pleased yesterday with the announcement that John McCain had chosen Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska and a solid conservative, as his running mate. She is a strong woman with an anti-corruption history.

I think it is ironic that the leading women's organizations (NOW, NARAL, and Emily's List, for example) have spoken out against Gov. Palin. Apparently they do not support all women as they claim, but only liberal/leftist/Marxist women who support abortion. It is also ironic that anyone would say a word about Gov. Palin not having experience. Take a look at Obama's resumé and see why it is ironic. If he is elected, he won't be a heartbeat away from the presidency. He will be the President.

Gov. Palin is definitely not a Washington insider and she has been a mayor and now a governor. It is true that the town she was mayor of had a population of 9,000 (as I have heard), but it was large enough to have all the various departments and issues to resolve, so it still gave her real executive experience. As governor of Alaska, she has actually accomplished things in her 2 years--fighting corruption and getting the natural gas pipeline underway are but two examples.

There are some sources for more information about Gov. Palin. Here are some links.

"Defending Against the First Attacks on Sarah Palin" by Patrick J. Casey

"Sarah Palin" at Wikipedia, a biography

"The Sarah Sensation" by Martin Sieff

You won't have any trouble finding additional articles on Gov. Palin in the MSM. Oh, and something else to consider in the presidential campaign from an article titled "Class vs. No Class" by Richard Baehr.

Regarding the Democrats' convention, here is a good article by Jed Babbin called "Now It's the Republicans' Turn". And another called "Where Was the Hope in Obama's Speech?" by Mac Johnson. There are some important considerations in both of those articles.

My friend, JR, sent me a link to an article about Israel that I think is good news. The article is "Israel Has Decided: Iran Will Not Have Nukes" by Gil Ronen and Hillel Fendel. I am glad to see that Israel is willing to stand up for itself and refuse to buckle under to pressure to continue to sacrifice itself needlessly, because Israel's enemies will never stop until Israel is destroyed. Only Israel can stop them, although I would hope that the US and other allies (if there are any) will help.

For some insight into Russia, as well as North Korea and Iran, read Carolyn Glick's article "When History is not Repeated".

Edited to Add:

I'm on a roll today! I have three more interesting articles to link to for your perusal.

"Two Truly Great Americans or Two Forked Tongue Senate Hacks. You Decide!" by JB Williams

"Why Liberals Can Never Lose Control of the Universities" by Dr. Brian Melton

"Chairman Says Americans are Selfish and Against 'The Least of Us'" by Warner Todd Huston

These articles bring out some points to consider as we think about the direction in which America should go.
