It’s coming out of the mouth of Biden himself. He’s flat out admitted that Hill would have been a better choice for veep. I guess if you’re buried and flattened by the Palin steamroller, you’ll do anything for publicity. Seriously, he’d so fallen off the media radar in the last week or so that I thought his picture was going to wind up on the side of a milk carton. Now more speculation of dumping Biden from the ticket for Hill or perhaps another woman politician. And, that’s not the first time that little story’s come up. Rush Limbaugh made mention of such rumors even before the GOP convention died down.
What is so funny about this will be the Ahab-like search for the liberal Sarah Palin by the Democrats. This going to be like the search for the liberal Rush Limbaugh that ended in the Air America/Al Franken debacle. In their frustration, the Democrats are calling for the restoration of the “fairness doctrine” to silence Rush.
Maybe the Democrats can have the Palin fairness doctrine. You can’t run a candidate like Palin unless the opposition can find a similarly dynamic woman with an equal number of kids and similar marksmanship bona fides.
The search for the liberal Palin will be in vain of course. Because Palin, unfettered by political correctness, unfettered by the compound mentality, unfettered by the abject fear of being banished from the bi-coastal social A-list, simply lived her life according to her best lights. Such women do not exist in liberal land.
Frankly, the novelty of a woman handling a gun with skill is not news in huge swaths of middle America. Likewise, a woman being active in the PTA, her church, on the local city council, serving as mayor are again, for most of middle America unremarkable. It was the MSM, swooning over these things that magnified them to the tsumni that is now washing away the Obama campaign. I pass over the inherent patronizing in such MSM coverage that many women find insulting.
It only gets better (or worse) for Barry and Hill. By the time 2012 rolls around, both Barry and Hill are going to be so yesterday in the Democratic rush to find the this liberal Palin. The too desiccated Governor Sebelius won’t make the cut either.
In any event, Biden’s not going to last beyond October because (from Palin Facts):
“Sarah Palin’s finishing move in the VP debate will be pulling Biden’s
still beating heart from his chest & taking a bite.”
