We can simultaneously praise Mrs Sarah Palin for having achieved so much in her young life as to be amazing, and fault her promoters for choosing someone to rule us that has pursued a dual masculine/feminine career.
She was a star in basketball, head of Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a near-miss for Miss Alaska, at which contest she performed on the flute, a sportscaster, mayor, and governor. She is a mother of five, the last of which has Down’s Syndrome, and the eldest of which is about to be deployed to Iraq. In short, she is the very epitome of the super- soccer-mom, the woman who “wanted it all” and got it.
I tend to think this choice is a brilliant ploy from the McCain handlers, which is probably going to deliver the needed constituencies and thus the election. Specifically, (1) soccer moms that are Republican but were tempted to go for “change”; (2) soccer moms that are not Republican but might be intrigued by someone like Palin that could serve as role model for their daughters; (3) some of the female Hillary supporters who might balk at voting for the Negro and now have an ersatz woman to vote for; (4) evangelicals and pro-lifers who now can scamper back to the fold with a clear conscience.
It is brilliant for the cryptocracy, in that they will rope it in for their first choice, while continuing the humiliation and demoralization of the white man: McCain will soon be dead or committed to an insane asylum, which means the election will be a choice between a Negro and a Woman.
On the positive side, there seems to be some truth in what the guys in the lab were saying the other day. Every country tries a female head leader — once. It seems to get it out of their system. England had Margaret Thatcher, Israel Golda Meir, India Indira Gandhi, Pakistan Benazir Bhutto. Germany is taking her turn at bat now with Merkel. The frogs are still holding out: they had a choice between a jew and a woman last time, and took the jew.
So, if we have to catch this chicken pox in order to get it over with and not get it again, it seems like Mrs Palin would be better than anyone else I can think of.
The tragedy however would be if the Christian community presents this situation as something absolutely positive, and Mrs Palin as a role model for girls, and the political realities of today as something acceptable. I fear this could happen. Some have already started suggesting Mrs Palin is our “Deborah.” The foolishness of such a comparison, from either the perspective of exegesis or biblical worldview, is, I hope, too obvious to readers of this blog to warrant spelling it out.
More grim to contemplate is the cryptocracy’s deeper plan. Mrs Palin will deliver their man, but will she still be useful to them after that? She is undoubtedly certified as Israel-safe, but how deep does that go? I doubt anyone knows for sure. We were discussing what means might be employed to move her out of the picture to be replaced by Jew Lieberman once the election is over. I truly hope they would not use a bullet to the skull in the case of a woman. It it sickening to contemplate, but I would expect something more like an aircraft engine “malfunction.”
