Last night we discovered Obama was in fact Zeus reincarnated as he delivered his fiery speech at Barackopolis with 80,000 swooning adoring sycophants. He wants us to believe that he is better on the judgment issue than McCain. He wants us to believe he is ready to run this country. While it was probably the best speech he ever gave, Barack Obama is in fact the most radical of any nominee this nation has ever produced probably more akin to the likes of Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua or Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. He doesn't have a clue about the economy nor does he have a clue about the world, yet his fans swoon over him.
I do believe McCain wanted to pick his friend Senator Joseph Lieberman. I respect Senator Lieberman, but you can not put a pro-choice Veep on a Republican ticket. He is probably one of the few democrats who has a brain, but this pick would have torn the party asunder. When McCain tested the waters, and floated Lieberman's name around, he found out what he would be up against. The conservative party would have been split. It would have been the narrative during the convention, and conservatives would have stayed home in droves, and the most radical candidate ever would have been elected president. We would have been in grave danger. After a rocky start, McCain is now running a magnificent campaign.
Today, however in this high-powered political chess game, McCain made a brilliant move by putting Obama in check possibly check-mate by selecting governor Palin (nicknamed Sarah barracuda) of Alaska as his VP choice. This move sucked the air out of Obama's convention and it pulled the rug right out from under Obama. This was a magnificent choice. This will galvanize the Republican Party, and it proves that McCain wants to win, and I now predict with this move McCain will win.
McCain should use his convention on spelling out his agenda and answering the empty rhetoric that was Obama's speech, and what Obama's policies will do to this country.
