Good and Wholesome

Just got back from an unbelievable McCain/Palin rally in Bethlehem, PA. I can’t begin to say how inspiring it was to see Senator McCain and Governor Palin in person,to hear them speak from 10′ away, to get an autograph and to shake a hand. What a shame more Americans can’t experience what I just experienced.

When I was leaving, a man came up to me and said that he was a newspaper reporter from Great Britain. He asked me what I, as an American, saw as the real reason why so many of us adore Sarah Palin. I responded, “Because she’s one of us.”

However, after he left, I realized that I had given him the wrong answer. The real reason that we Americans love Sarah Palin is because she is the embodiment of goodness. She is wholesome in the way that Ronald Reagan was wholesome. She is strong in the way that John Wayne was strong. And in her own way, she is heroic. The light shines through her.

She is what most of us want to be…good and wholesome Americans.
