Cindy McCain, explaining why Sarah Palin has all the national security experience she needs. Yes, but in the movie Red Dawn, the Russians invaded Colorado, so hopefully the mayor of Vail will be McCain’s Secretary of Defense.

Sarah Palin 7 months pregnant:
Well, finally there’s a candidate for office who can’t remember where they were when Kennedy was shot. BECAUSE SHE WASN’T BORN YET.
All of them. Seriously, for whom is this woman a leader? I’m beginning to think McCain has something against those hippie kids.
Its population is roughly 60% of the size of the undergraduate student body of my alma mater. I served in student government — maybe I should be the VP candidate. My constituency was bigger.
Also, if the entire city of Wasilla went to a Dodger game there would be 50,000 empty seats.
The first serious female candidate for executive office was just undercut by a younger woman with a fraction of the experience, who will enjoy her candidacy soley because an old white man picked her out of a lineup.
If I were a Hillary supporter, I’d be really pissed off right now.
How can you have “full membership” in a community if someone of your race or gender cannot ascend to its highest level of executive authority?
Upon reflection, I see the importance of Hillary’s tenacity. She probably knew after Texas, if not before, that her candidacy was doomed to failure. But when you’re taking a hammer to The Glass Ceiling, you need as many swings as time will allow. And when you’re hammering it home to your constituents that a woman can become President, that she can break through to full membership in the American community, it doesn’t hurt to have as much stage time as possible.
The Rocky metaphor more aptly applies to Hillary Clinton than it does Barack Obama. Rocky lost his big fight. But he stuck it out to the final bell, and that’s the whole point of the movie.
