Newly elected Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin and daughters check out their new digs.

The varied expressions on the faces of the Palins reveal that personalities are allowed to thrive in that family. Confidence, pride, and wonder are just some of the aspects revealed in this photo. Being a mother of daughters and a son, I can identify with the emotions pictured in the above photo.

Piper, Bristol, and Willow are perhaps, unusual names but this article pretends to frame the name choices of the Palin family as odd. Trig and Track are the names chosen for the Palin sons. They are all dynamic, different and confidently American.


From the looks of this adorable photo it appears that Sarah Palin is not ashamed of her past involvement in beauty pagents. Every little girl loves wearing crowns. When we grow up though, many other crowning achievements beckon us. And boy, did Sarah achieve them.

Getting to know Sarah Palin is turning into quite a Christmas morning. One gift reveals a conservative woman with staunch pro-life values, another, an individual who can hold her own in any situation, still another gift reveals that Palin has quite a fashion sense in her choice of shoes. Under this twinkly Christmas-in-August tree we see an athlete who takes on snow sports with gusto along with her handsome husband.


Another package wrapped up in blue reveals that Democrats are really scared to death of Palin.

Palin is a reader and her favorite reading is Biographical Histories of U.S. Founders.

In the largest package tucked behind the tree, which many Republicans had glimpsed like little children in anticipation and hopes that it would contain something that would dazzle with pure Republican conservative grit, they found that what Senator McCain had promised was, indeed, true!

John Santa McCain delivered a true North Star!

Friday the 29th of August became December 25th to many hopeful Republicans and Americans. Because Hurricane Gustav threatens to out-Katrina Katrina, Senator McCain and running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin are changing the direction of the Republican Convention. It won”'’t be a party, for what American can celebrate when so many people will be impacted by such terrifying weather.

This past Friday’’s fabulous announcement that Sarah Palin was John McCain’’s choice and her ringing acceptance speech and endorsement of him may turn out to be Palin’’s convention speech, but what a speech it was! It dazzled and it rang true of a woman who came up on her own, confronted corruption and beat it, raised children along with her mate and held to her pro-life beliefs when confronted by the news that her baby boy, Trig, would have an impairment.

Sarah Palin understands courage and she enthusiastically endorsed Senator McCain’’s valiant warrior past and gave a testimony of her support for our military. Her own first born, Track is deploying to Iraq on September 11th, in little over a week.

Palin’’s breakthrough knocked the Obama boomlet right out from under him. Sarah Palin facts are popping up, reminiscent of Chuck Norris facts. Here’’s one……

Little Known Fact: Sarah Palin is so HOT that God had to send a hurricane to cool America off.

Of course, it didn'’t take the party (and supporters in the media) of Ebenezer B. Obama long to belittle and slime Sarah Palin but as Rick Moran writes, Democrats do this at their peril.

As a true Christmas should accomplish, the joy is being spread around liberally. Camille Paglia, a Democrat is quoted here saying the following…

We may be seeing the first woman president. As a Democrat, I am reeling,” said Camille Paglia, the cultural critic. “That was the best political speech I have ever seen delivered by an American woman politician. Palin is as tough as nails.”

In the same Times Online article I discovered this quote from Sarah Palin…

She hunts, ice-fishes and is a crack shot who knows how to fire an M16 rifle. “I was raised in a family where gender was not going to be an issue,” she said. “The girls did what the boys did. Apparently in Alaska that’s quite commonplace.”

This is why many women will identify with Sarah Palin. Girls can do what boys do.
Sometimes we can do it better. But, unlike many feminists, most of us don'’t try to Lord it over them when we do.

Now that Christmas morning is over we have to take up the gifts that have been given us and support McCain and Palin. My husband and I contributed to the campaign again this past Friday and so did many people! In fact, 4 million dollars were raised through the internet in the first twenty four hours after the veep announcement and 3 million dollars more have been raised since. People do put their money where their mouths are.

Where will we go from here to defeat Obama, the leftist in an empty suit? There are still the stockings hung with care that we haven”'’t even checked out in our happiness over John McCain”’’s selection of Sarah Palin.

So much more to love. So little time.

Merry Christmas in August!
