Sometimes you just have to quote yourself!

Posted on: September 7, 2008

The title of this post is a line oft used by a person whose blog I read  religiously, Hedi Li Feldman. Some of her points are so well articulated and so sought after by her readership, she ends up quoting herself!!

Now, of course this is a coincidence, my immediate past post was about Lynette Long, just perchance. There was no premeditated plan to do back to back posts on two ladies I admire greatly: Lynette Long and Heidi Li. By the way I think so highly of these two  I paid them a tribute in a diary at Alegre’s Corner, titled  Hagioi Li-Lynn – the patron saints of hanging chads.  If you are not familiar with Heidi’s work on behalf of Hillary, the Denver Group and 300-Delegate petition – go over to her blog and read it all to get up to speed.

Why do I quote this post caption line from Heidi LI?  Well, first of all, I must admit to having goofed in my pick for McCain’s v.p.

I picked Linda Lingle, but McCain chose Sarah Palin. Come to think of it I wasn’t that far off. I did pick a female, a governor, an outsider, and importantly someone beyond the lower 48 states. I went with the 50th instead of the 49th!  I was sure that Mac was looking for fresh blood and new direction for the campaign. I was off by a few thousand miles, I guess.

Seriously, the point of this post is, to quote Professor Feldman: sometimes you just have to quote yourself!

So, here I will repost my argument on the benefits to the McCain campagin from selecting a female governor, just change the name Linda Lingle to Sarah Palin.

You will see that everything I wrote over a week ago turned out to be oddly prescient .

 

Think of the advantages to McCain campaign .

Americans will be suddenly entranced by a completely new personality in front of them. The nation, the media, the blogosphere, the world, that for a whole year has been buzzed to headache levels by the hope and the hype, will now suddenly be focusing on something totally new. For sure this will deflate some of the DNC/MSM anointed one.

Progressives, liberals, Jews, women, moderate Democrats, PUMAs, some trade unionists, minorities of a large number of stripes will be enchanted and taken in with this new person on the national scene particularly.

Suddenly 18 million voters are reminded of something they did months ago, in a different season as it were. Regardless of what transpired at Denver, 18 miilion are reminded that they chose a woman.

For the 40% of Hillary voters who will not support Obama for whatever reason, the selection of Lingle will make it very easy to become a McCaincrat for a day.

For millions of undecided voters, already afflicted with Obama-fatigue, Gov. Lingle will be a breath of true fresh air. She turned Hawaii red locally, now she could do it nationally.

The campaign dynamic will change dramatically. Obama already feels familiar. The one woman in a group of four aspirants will draw much attention and quite a bit of adoration.

Practical advantage against Biden. It is said Biden will be the pit bull or attack dog of this campaign. Can you really see Biden being mean in a debate to this nice motherly Jewish lady? May be he would have attacked Hillary, not Lingle.

Almost subtly, people won’t see the pairings as: Obama-McCain and Biden-Lingle match up, even if pundits talk that way. I guarantee you, the voter perceptions will be different. When the typical voter looks at the four, they will subconsciously categorize them into pairs differently. It will be more a comparison of Biden with McCain and Obama with Lingle. Once that angle sets in, Obama is toast. Lingle’s resume, style and background are every bit a match to the Obama story and she will win people over. Especially, elderly females, men of a certain age and most minority voters will be entranced.

The contrast between the manufactured nature of Obama’s persona and campaign versus the natural and organic nature of the career and resume of Gov. Lingle will be painfully obvious. Rock star meet public servant. Even the kids will have a hard time staying high. (More koolaide please).

    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

    All eyes were on President Trump Monday night as he addressed the nation about the country’s future actions in regards to the War in Afghanistan. And without giving too many details, the President declared that there would be some form of troop increase but noted that there were conditions to our aid and limits to the costs we were willing to bear. But that […]

    On Monday night, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC each broke in with special reports for President Trump’s speech announcing his Afghanistan strategy and, in the course of the post-speech analyses, ABC and NBC lobbed cold water on the plans seeing as how low Trump’s approval ratings have been. Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd followed up his […]

  • Networks Punt on Bombing Plot Against Confederate Monument in Houston
    ABC, CBS, and NBC's evening newscasts on Monday all failed to cover the thwarted bombing of a Confederate monument in Houston, Texas. The Big Three networks led and concluded each program with full reports on the solar eclipse that crossed the United States, but didn't even set aside a news brief to the arrest of Andrew Cecil Schneck, who allegedly […]

    Let’s offer some congratulations to AMC’s Preacher for giving me the fastest, most efficient subject for an article yet. The latest episode featured a subject so embarrassingly crass that I’m shocked I got through the entire episode without slamming my head against a wall. It only takes three simple words: Jesus having sex. The August 21 episode “Dirty Littl […]

  • After Aiding Antifa, MSNBC Questions the ‘Pitfalls of Free Speech’
    Over the course of last week, on NBC and MSNBC, host Chuck Todd gave a leg up to the violent Antifa movement by letting them defend their assaults on the police and innocent people not once, but twice. Todd’s interviews showed just how tolerant he was those who use violence to shut down free speech. And while Todd was absent from MTP Daily on Monday, Katy Tu […]
