The jury is still out on her as far as I am concerned. Oh, I know, as a 2A person I am supposed to be enthusiastic about her. Actually it's all the unbridled enthusiasm that's causing me to have reservations. When there's a sudden, almost euphoric, popular rush toward something it always causes me to have that reaction. Think Obama.
She's a physically attractive person which is always a Good Thing for a politician, and she seems to have most of the right credentials— at least we are told that she does. Nevertheless, I see her selection as a cooly tactical— and not a little cynical— move by McCain. So far it seems to be working.
But I'm waiting for a few more counties to be heard from before I join the placard wavers. There have been a few rumbles from the far north country that might (I say might) indicate that all is not well. I don't like hearing about censorship and family-related pressure tactics in the public arena. I'm usually pretty good at picking up the whiffs of bias and ax-manship. My sense of the spurious. If that's what these turn out to be, then so much to the good.
I'll vote for the ticket. There's just too much at stake not to. But I don't have to do any gushing and fawning just yet.
