Michael Reagan on Sarah Palin

Personally, I don't think of Sarah Palin as the resurrection of anyone but rather the first Sarah Palin, but Michael Reagan sees it differently. He says Welcome Back, Dad
  • I’ve been trying to convince my fellow conservatives that they have been wasting their time in a fruitless quest for a new Ronald Reagan to emerge and lead our party and our nation. I insisted that we’d never see his like again because he was one of a kind.

    I was wrong!

So, how do we get more Governor Palins?

You might think that's just pure luck, but there's a way to get more of this. Fred Thompson has started a Political Action Committee to promote true conservatives like Governor Palin and to help get them elected to office wherever he may find them. I've signed on and I have a widget up on the top right of the page where you can go contribute. You can also go and sign up at to do other valuable things to help. If you can only dig up $25 of so from time to time, just hit the widget and Fred and I thank you.

I think Colorado just went back red

It's hard to get a solid read on things viewing just my tiny little slice of Americana, but Governor Palin's speech last night looks to go down as truly historic. A lot of the fence sitters, be it Democrat, Independent, or Republican, became committed to Palin. We'll see next week when the poll watchers chime in, but my unscientific polls indicate a huge grab by the McCain/Palin ticket. I think they ended up being a lot like me and have decided to vote for Governor Palin and whoever that Yahoo is she's got running with her...

I also know why. It's purely on what she's done. She managed to work her way from being a member of the local PTA all the way up to candidate for Vice President of the United States of America. She either didn't encounter any glass ceilings (we Republicans are funny that way) or she just totally obliterated them. Either way though, it takes a strong personality and sharp mind to accomplish what she's accomplished. America sees something they like.

Now, just to put me on cloud nine, the Democrats are livid. Even better is, there's totally nothing they can do about it They can't undo her record.

That was their only shot, because option B for them is to convince everyone to un-like her...

Hey, someone buy Governor Palin a beer! It's on me!

Governor Palin. YOU DA MAN!

As you all know, Governor Sarah Palin delivered a speech at the RNC last night and man, did she nail it. Listening to the media review it and downplay it because it was written for her and all she had to do was read it (which just so happens to be what all the candidates do), then to find out this morning that her teleprompter broke partway through and she just winged it the rest of the way makes me understand just how impressive this woman really is.

The VP debate is going to be very interesting. Joe Biden, meet Sarah Barracuda...

Couple of other interesting thoughts on last night:

Our girls are so much better looking than the Democrat girls.

It was mentioned in one of the earlier speeches that Palin garnered more votes running for Mayor of that little town in Alaska than Biden got running for President.

I watched most of the events on CSPAN so I didn't have to put up with the media slant and got to hear Michael Steele's speech. It was another great speech that got the crowd worked up pretty good. You may have heard the catch phrase "drill baby drill" throughout the night and that was from his speech.

Sarah Palin proved beyond a shadow of a doubt she is ready to be "a heatbeat away from the Presidency".

Can we start the Palin/Jindal 2012 campaign yet?
