Anonymous is usually an annoying bastard who turns up occasionally makes some (often) stupid statement and disappears into the ether. Sometimes he/she comes up with something special, and this time he did.
The following is addressed to John McCain urging him to select Sarah Palin for a VP.
First and foremost, Sarah Palin shares your values. She killed the bridge to nowhere. Need we say more?Anon. if this is your work, get yourself a blog and start writing more of it, you’re too bloody good to sit around making comments.
As for the politics, Sarah Palin transcends geography. Her constituency, like yours, goes beyond state lines.
She will get your ticket access to voters all over the country based on who she is and what she stands for. Because she's young, a woman, a mother with young kids, she will grab media attention more than any other potential candidate.
Gov. Palin also has a son in the active duty military. You have very wisely taken your son's service in Iraq off the table as a campaign talking point. That is and should be respected. But others can talk about it and reflect on what it means.
A McCain-Palin administration would be the first in memory, which has family members in uniform during wartime from both the President and Vice President. That would be a powerful statement as to the importance of national service, especially in uniform.
Most importantly, any Vice President should be ready to step up and serve in the event she is needed. Frankly, who is really ever ready? Gov. Palin is as ready as anybody, she is a quick learner, and in her public career has exhibited the courage and decisiveness needed for a great leader.
Godspeed to you in your campaign and in making this important decision."
