"And lastly on the internet front and the photo at the top of the blog entry is one Sarah Palin. I knew very little about her, but was intrigued when I saw her on Charlie Rose this past Friday. I didn't know exactly who she was, I just knew that she had this schoolmarm-ish hotness about her, so I was intrigued to learn some more. She is a Republican and the Governor of Alaska, but what is fascinating is that, in a age where Republicans as a whole are not doing well in the polls, she is very much the exception to the rule, having the highest approval rating of any governor in the United State, with the lowest approval number I have seen being 84% (with a 5% disapproval number). Mind you, I get that Alaska is very much a Republican state, but 84% is an impressive number for anyone, any where and at any time. After reading up on her (and oggling her photos more than I would like to admit), I can say that while I do not agree with all of her stands on issues per se, it is still refreshing to see someone in public service actually work for their constituents, rather than simply paying them lip service."
Well today she is the Republican nominee for Vice President. Damn, are we ahead of the curve here again, or what?
