(Those are the birth years of Obama and McCain's surprise VP pick.)
I think it was rather bold
to make Obama look old.
Seems like the media remains lined up for Obama, but now they're circling Palin excitedly - like moths around a candle. She's better looking than Obama... and she's new! Obama is already so yesterday in the world of instant news.
She seems, after 15 minutes of research, to be authentically conservative. Which isn't a good thing exactly in my mind. But when the battle rages between liberals and conservatives, gridlock starts looking desirable to me. Both sides want to control parts of our lives that don't need outside control.
The silent shock
of gridlock -
the freezing of the gears -
can be music to my ears.
