This is going to be fun.

One of my favorite things in life is to watch liberals, and their pals in the media, blow a collective gasket. The nomination of Governor Sarah Palin to the republican ticket has sent the left into a new dimension of desperation. They are scared to death, as well they should be.

Governor Palin is genuine, that is something people intrinsically feel when you have it, and they know it when you don't. This ability to connect with ordinary people is not a skill you can acquire at an Ivy League school, or by spending a few decades in Washington D.C.; you either have or you don't. Ronald Reagan on the right and Bill Clinton on the left are recent examples of politicians who could go around the media and speak directly to the people, but these days a politician with an approval rating in the mid-80s is almost unheard of, unless you count Kim Jong Il.

Palin's capacity to energize the base of the republican party, get them to volunteer at their county republican offices and open up their checkbooks is the reason why the left is taking swings at her like a candy-filled pinata at a fat kids camp.

Sarah scares the living daylights out of the liberals right now. Who knows how this will play out, she may make a series of gaffs in the next two months or the excitement factor could die down a bit as the election becomes more focused on McCain and Obama, but right now Sarah is in the spotlight.

I'm ready for my closeup.
