The Day John McCain Won The Election

November 4th is still along time down the road, but if John McCain is measuring for drapes in the Oval Office at that time we will all be able to look at his pick of Sarah Palin as the day he sealed the deal.

For months hard-core conservatives have talked with me on the radio or via email and they have been conflicted.  McCain is sometimes with us, but other times against us.  At points it seems as though he is intentionally spitting in our collective eye.  We certainly don’t want Obama, but is McCain all that much better?  While Obama has been able to harness energy among his core and even some from new voters, the McCain campaign was looking as sleepy as Bob Dole’s.  People actively engaged in GOP politics just weren’t feeling it.  Then Sarah Palin walked on stage with McCain in Dayton.

Immediately my email box was jammed and my cell phone started ringing.  Conservatives were cheering.  Some had tears in their eyes just hours after mocking the Obama loyalists for doing the same thing.  With the pick of Sarah Palin, John McCain has energized his base in a way that he could not have done with any other candidate.  Romney?  Pawlenty?  Huckabee?  Meg Whitman?  Only Palin with her history and life experience could have generated this much excitement from the conservative base.

It’s as though Karl Rove sat down with pen and paper and sketched out the perfect conservative nominee….

  • A hunter with a lifetime membership in the NRA.
  • Regularly attends church.
  • Fought corruption even within her own party.
  • Knew her son would have Down Syndrome and still chose life.
  • Has a son who is headed to Iraq, but still supports the war.
  • Has more executive experience than Obama and Biden combined.
  • Sold the governor’s state plane because it’s a waste of tax dollars.
  • Her husband is a union laborer.
  • Wants to drill in ANWR.
  • Oh yeah, she’s a woman!

The more I think about her pick the more I realize she may have been the only person in the whole country who could give John McCain a solid chance to win.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
