Wanna Smile?

Michelle Malkin did a short piece on Sarah today that warmed my heart.  See this link.

I'm curious: do any of you who love Palin feel concerned about her and her husband's association with the Alaskan Independence Party (who hates, really hates, the U.S. government and wants to secede)? If not, why not?
Thanks,
Silou

I would like to see break away from basing their vote on their religion beliefs and vote for what's good for this county. This country was not found on Christianity, it was founded on freedom of religion. I think for someone to vote for someone because of religious purposes is sort of selfish. It would be a slap in the face to the people on the Mayflower if we start basing this country off of Christianity and not the freedom of religion.

I'm not curious, postergirl. In this case love is truly blind. But I must say Governor Palin has guts for deciding to appear on Saturday Night Live tomorrow night. I think it's a HUGE mistake on her part, but it shows guts. And it will be hilarious to see her and Tina Fey performing "Dueling Sarahs."

I agree with Alan. Palin has guts going on SNL. And it could be a huge mistake. She doesn't appear to have a self-deprecating bone in her body (or if she does, she hasn't shown it), and that could prove fatal. The fact that Palin IS a parody won't help matters as well. Tina Fey and the SNL cast won't pull any punches, either. Palin is definitely entering the lion's den. Of course her appearance could (and most probably will) amount to no more than a harmless cameo a la Hillary Clinton (walking on stage during the bit about her and standing next to Fey). The real question is this: Given the incendiary rhetoric Palin has leveled towards Obama on the campaign trail of late (Ex: "This is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country."), will Palin be booed by the audience? This is New York after all. Tune in...

So interesting Palin can go on SNL, but refuses to go on "Meet the Press," "This Week," "Face the Nation," "The Today Show," or "Good Morning, America."

Kudos to Sarah Palin for her appearance on SNL. She actually does have a sense of humor (at least for the cameras--apparently she ignored Tina Fey while she was there, although they did hug at the end). But what struck me more than anything was a moment at the beginning of the show (while Tina was playing Sarah onstage) when Sarah Palin remarked to Lorne Michaels (and I paraphrase), 'That's not how I envisioned the press conference I would have given.' What hit me at that moment is that since being chosen by John McCain to be his running mate Sarah Palin hasn't given a single solitary press conference! That is unprecedented in the history of political campaigns. Now I understand, given the way she handled her interviews with Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric, why the McCain campaign has kept her in hiding. And no, sitting down with Sean Hannity doesn't qualify as an interview (a massage possibly, but not an interview). So how is anyone supposed to have confidence in her readiness to be President of the United States when McCain's campaign is terrified of the thought of her giving a press conference?
