Video Hat Tip: Hyscience
1) Newt is on a roll again in the above video. Someone from the Drive By Media was whining about Palin having a thin resume and Newt just gave it to him. He was right and it was great to see.
2) The liberal left would like you to think that Evangelicals and Conservatives are going to abandon Palin because her 17 yr. old daughter is pregnant. Nothing could be further from the truth. While the Drive By Media and liberals are having a feeding frenzy about it, the conservative base still loves her and it will be a non-issue pretty soon. Here are some excerpts on what people are saying about it that I found at Hyscience:
"This is the pro-life choice. The fact that people will criticize her for this shows the astounding extent to which the secular critics of the pro-life movement just don't get it. Those who criticize the Palin family don't understand that we don't see babies as a punishment but as a blessing. Barack Obama said that if one of his daughters made a mistake and got pregnant out of wedlock he wouldn't want her to be punished with a child. Pro lifers don't see a child as punishment."--Dr. Richard Land, President of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission
"Look, this development will actually be positive for the most part with Evangelicals. First they hear that Sarah Palin chooses the life option even though she had a Downs Syndrome baby and once again the family (and Bristol) has chosen the life option in this recent case. That's a double "ca-ching". Let's call this the Evangelical daily double. If anything, this whole situation will probably make more people around the country relate to her and her family. It makes them more real. Will there by some turned off by the whole pre-marital sex thing? Of course but this type of story doesn't sink her at all with Evangelicals."--David Brody
3) Patrick Buchanan actually wrote something I agree with for the first time in awhile. Here is how he opens his latest column:
"The risk John McCain took last Friday is comparable to the 72-year-old ex-fighter pilot knocking back two shots and flying his F-16 under the Golden Gate Bridge.
McCain's choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his co-pilot was the biggest gamble in presidential history. As of now, it is paying off, big-time."
4) Why Sarah has the X Appeal! This is a good comprehensive article that was written about Palin. Here is how Oliver Harvey concludes his column:
"Many pundits believe her addition to the Republican ticket will make the race with Obama’s Democrats go to the wire.
What is certain is that the sharp-shooting mom from the wilds of Alaska won’t go down without a fight."
