Sarah Get Your Gun

Sarah Palin has now been compared to Margaret Thatcher, Evita Peron, Maria von Trapp, American frontier women, the Wicked Witch of the West and any number of other strong women, but hasn’t anyone else realized that she’s really the Annie Oakley of the campaign?

She’s right out of the musical, Annie Get Your Gun: consider: she’s a gun totin’, straight talkin’, smart alec, sassy gal who keeps the enemy in her sights and won’t take no nonsense from no fella no how no way. 
With her flair for sharp shooting speeches she might as well be belting out the tune, “There’s no business like show business” and to the big, arrogant Frank Barack (whoops, I mean Butler) she sticks out her chin and sings, “Anything you can do I can do better, I can do anything better than you.”

    I reckon she can ride two horses at the same time, too! I say “VOTE FOR ANNIE!”

    Can’t help but think of another “Annie” too: the feisty rags-to-riches by her bootstraps gal…”The sun will come out tomorrow…”

    Sarah Palin was a political choice, not one in the best interest of America. All I can say is that there were many other much more genuinely qualified people who should have been considered and chosen as a running mate. This choice really created doubt in my mind on McCain’s judgement.

    Barack Obama was a political choice, not one in the best interest of America. All I can say is that there were many other much more genuinely qualified people who should have been considered and chosen as the Democratic nominee. This choice really created doubt in my mind on the Democratic Party’s judgment.Cuomo in 2012!

    Fr. L, Are you obsessed with Palin? Are you secretly an Assemblies of God end-times protestant or something?Check out Harris’s article on her from Newsweek:http://www.newsweek.com/id/160080He captures you so accurately in his portrait as to be a photograph! Palin is folksy and good, the liberals are elitist, any bad interview is just a left wing conspiracy, et cetera.
