Why I'd Be a Better VP than Sarah Palin

Why I'd Be a Better VP than Sarah Palin: “I'd like to formally submit myself to replace Sarah Palin on the GOP ticket. I feel confident that John McCain will see that the very attributes he desired in his VP choice can be met, and even exceeded in some areas, by me. For your consideration, my big, fat résumé:

1. Focus on the Family
I am the mother of five children, just like Governor Palin. I have known the demands of managing a full-time career and motherhood at the same time. I have juggled a breast pump and a BlackBerry, and I know when to put the BlackBerry down. (To be perfectly honest, I did once send a text to the baby and tried to nurse my bass player. You learn from your mistakes.)

2. Reproductive Issues
I also believe that a teenager's pregnancy is a "private family matter." In fact, I believe that every woman's pregnancy is a "private, family matter." (I bet the GOP never thought of making that leap!)

3. Church and State . . .



This is what I don't get about Sarah Palin. Everyone says she's a really gifted politician, a natural, etc., and, if her politics weren't so toxic (to use a Maddow word about Buchanan) I think I would find her very likable, she's got very cool glasses she that talented, etc.? She has had beauty pageant training which is about poise and selling yourself to the audience and sportscaster training which has some of that and also trains you to read a teleprompter - isn't that what people are responding to? And, if so, wouldn't Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric and any other attractive female newscaster do as good a job?

Of course, her church thinks it's God's will she is where she is (as one woman said it - I don't think she would've gotten as far as she has if it wasn't what God wanted and I thought - yep - it's kind of a miracle.)
