  • She's amazing, and she's now my new hero!

    Well, around August 20th or so, John McCain chose his new vice president in Dayton, Ohio (and I happen to live in Ohio). Sarah Palin had immediately walked up and started soaking in attention. I had never heard a word about Sarah Palin, and didn't even know she existed until that day. My first impression was, "Oh, she's probably one of those attention-loving politician chicks," and left the room. But eventually I heard she was a pro-life conservative, and that's when I got interested. I became a Sarah Palin supporter, and the more I saw her, the more I totally fell in love with her.

    Sarah Palin is charming, gorgeous, funny, and I would love to have a friend just like her. She's on the right track and took a lot of hard knocks without blinking an eye. I give her a thumbs up, and now every time when it feels like the whole world is against me and I can't take it anymore and want to quit, I'll think of Palin. I hope I can be more like her. She is my role model. And her Downes Syndrome baby is adorable, I'm glad she kept him and I gurantee he will be a blessing to the earth.
