Another Voting bloc?...

.

The day it was announced that John McCain selected Sarah Palin as the GOP Vice-President candidate I received numerous phone calls from co-workers and college friends from places I once lived. From New Jersey I got a call claiming that half of the shop up there was voting for the “Hot Librarian” and when I said that I thought most up in NJ were Democrats I was told “That too will change”…

From deep south Florida I heard that it was good somebody who actually knows Alaska and the potential ANWR yields is now on a ticket. That and the Salmon fishing up there is outstanding…

Here in Virginia I have had many co-workers coming to me asking about the V.P. candidate and interest in the November election has increased several fold. Requests for signs, bumper stickers, voting registration forms, and directions to local headquarters, has exploded…

The initial interest in the V.P. candidate and the Presidential ticket has grown from a simple phrase like the one on the above sign to one of a renewed interest in the Conservative\Republican party and November election ticket. Now that many have had the opportunity to hear Palin during her acceptance speech as well as John McCain’s speech at the RNC convention, a new, and very strong groundswell of GOP interest has arrived…

Republican Party headquarters in Harrisonburg\Rockingham county, Waynesboro, and candidates campaign offices have told me of incredible interest in this election and campaign materials have been blowing out the doors followed up with requests for more.

But what is most interesting and welcomed to see is that the “vast majority” of this new interest in the campaigns are focused on the issues and the abilities of the Republican candidates. Yes I believe many were still going to vote for McCain simply because of the caliper of the opposing team and their lack of experience and knowledge, but now many have new interest in the game. I now get daily calls from people who are now involved in the party and look forward to the debates and opportunity to talk issues.

The Republican ticket now has a Strong Conservative with family values that they can believe in for it’s the same thing that they believe in and live each day…

Still makes me wonder what the “Hillary” sign would have said…

Is it true that the sign says "Sponsored by Friends of Bill Clinton"?

anon 10:12,

Not at all. What this shows is a whole new interest in the election and a reason for MANY to come out and vote for a party with a VP candidate who is not afraid to state what she believes. There have been many that were going to vote for McCain not for he was their first choice but because Obama is so far out in "LEFT" field and they know his administration would destroy the country, the economy, and security of the world.

With Palin on the ticket we now have a large groundswell of people coming out and working the campaigns. Signs are in big demands, debates are look forward to, interviews have very high ratings, etc...

Friend in NJ walked into a GOP campaign headquarters and placed down $100 for the campaign. NJ has also been safe for the Dems during the past few elections but is NOW in play...

Here comes your "CHANGE"...

Palin is the true feminist-feminist 2.0 if you will-She can have a career, and kids, and even a husband, and doesn't have to purposely try to look like a man while doing it-
