Palin does Washington

I have been meaning to blog on various ongoing interesting topics but and never getting to it. Instead I keep on piling up on ‘i have to blog about this’ archive that I hardly ever remember.

The one story though that has stuck (besides hurricane IKE devastation and the ongoing fire sale on Wall Street) is the US Presidential race, America’s defining moment.

And hence Palin does Washington…of course not literally, at least not yet!

Americas Sweetheart, Obamas Nightmare!
America's Sweetheart, Obama's Nightmare!

Anyway besides Palin, there are several reasons the Democratic Party might lose in this year’s presidential election. And giving credit where its due, that was a gutsy call by old and wise McCain who shocked everyone and tapped Hot Alaskan Governor Palin as the VP, so far the risk is paying off for McCain.

I just don’t know how settled anyone can be to know that Ms. Palin could be the US President in case anything was to happen to John. Would she be ready?

Perhaps the most important factor that will have Obama working on another memoir instead of scheduling meetings with the Chavez’s of this world, is his party’s continued lack of the Testicular Fortitude needed to counter the Republican political machinery.

Observing the electoral process in US Presidential elections it seems to me that the democratic party is always being out hustled and out muscled.

Case in point, in 2000 and 2004, Al Gore and John Kerry respectively chocked to the drumbeats and chest thumping of George ‘I can’t believe I am President’, Walker Bush and the Karl Rove beat down.

My unsolicited advise to Senator Obama is to look deep into his campaign strategy and find how hope and change can turn into political counter Jabs to swing back at the Republicans. Because if for a moment Obama and his supporters think they have seen the worst of dirty politics from Republicans….well they will have another 4 years to hope for change.

Last but not least, a short story about a Playa by Birth not by training:

This guy dumped his girlfriend on Valentines day and gave flowers and gifts to a new girl the same day! Not to mention that this was in standard 8!

True Story.

Good week, good people.
