Meant to post this some time ago.
When you are a parent you have to blink!
In my opinion Palin's most damning response in the Charlie Gibson interview last week was when she said,"I answered him yes,".... "because I have the confidence in that readiness and knowing that you can’t blink, you have to be wired in a way of being so committed to the mission, the mission that we’re on, reform of this country and victory in the war, you can’t blink. So I didn’t blink then even when asked to run as his running mate."
She didn't pause to think about it at all! She didn't consider her young baby, her pregnant daughter. She didn't even consider what this would mean for them. Is this the kind of person that anyone would want a heartbeat away from being the President.
Doesn't this completely counteract the fact that she has a young family in the first place. If she is going to make major decisions without considering them - she is saying that they are irrelevant - she has lost the right to use them in this campaign and she has lost the every woman tag that she is so eager to portray.
Palin's answer to this simple question revealed just how delusional she is. Any rational person of her experience level would at least take a little time on such a big decision.
Does she Remind you of anyone else?
"I feel like God wants me to run for President. I can't explain it, but I sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen... I know it won't be easy on me or my family, but God wants me to do it."
