I am savoring my images of the McCain campaign, furiously scratching their heads over the impending VP debate. Are we better off with her or without her? they're musing ala Dear Abby. After all, playing the mom card offers such an easy exit .....
Sara Palin to adoring group of actors hand selected by Team McCain: "It's been an honor and a priviledge to stand next to John McCain."
(enthusiastic applause accompanied by grand nodding from Palin)
"The challenges before my son Trig are complex and delicate. The new life my daughter Bristol faces is also complex and delicate, but in a different way."
(a brave gaze from Palin as a respectful moment of silence allows this touching and beautifully honest admission to garner its rightful emotion)
"My children need a full time mother right now."
(a brief and somewhat bated pause)
"And this country needs a full time Vice President."
(shocked silence accompanied by resolute purse-lipped nodding from Palin)
"I am always a mother first ... "
So what do you think? Is it still possible for Palin to drop out? The fact that McCain kept her under wraps after the debate does not bode well.
What say you, bloggers?
