Sarah Palin.

If you want to know about her speech last night, read this.  It's a pretty good (if poorly formatted) review.  My thoughts on the woman:

She is the Republican Party's Trophy Wife Candidate.  
  • As one person said about her speech, she came off a bit like the school valedictorian who was also a former cheerleader.  
  • She's not a spring chicken, but is still good-looking enough to make your buddies envious.  
  • She has her own hobbies, like running the PTA.  They make her feel important!
  • She has her own job as Governor of Alaska, so she can get the better parking spots, waive your traffic tickets, and pay for her own shopping trips.
  • She knows how to use the computers and put things on eBay, thereby getting them out of the garage.  We can make it a rumpus room once she clears out all that space!
Governor Sarah Palin is the completely sexist "look, we're not sexist, here's a woman" candidate.  There are other female politicians, legislators like Sen. Olympia Snowe, who have experience in Washington and have earned the respect of their peers.  Nominating Sarah Palin is the choice that only a misogynist would make.
