Thank you John McCain!

I stayed up way too late Thursday night getting ready for my preschool open house, and then once I got to bed I could not sleep. My biological clock is so messed up from being sedentary for so long plus staying up late watching those darn Olympics. I finally got up and turned the TV on at about 5:00 a.m., just as they were beginning to close in on Seantor McCain's running mate. It was so exciting to hear the LIVE reports. I had been hoping if McCain didn't select Mitt Romney that he would choose a strong woman and I was thrilled to hear it was Alaska's governor, Sarah Palin. I taped her acceptance speech (I know, I'm a news junkie) and I just bawled. I don't know if it was exhuastion, or relief at having the preschool room done or the fact that this woman could make a difference, or a combination of all of the above. I was so impressed with her in so many ways. The more I learn about her the more impressed I am. For the first time I think the Republicans just might be able to pull this off. Speaking of my news junkie problem, I taped the Democratic National Convention, then fast-forwarded through the speeches and went right to the play-by-play after. I love The FOX News Channel! I must admit I did listen to the entire speeches of both Biden and Obama. It seemed like it was nothing new or different, although Obama is a great speaker. The Hollywood hype seems like it should make the choice even more simple and clear. I hope so. I am way too old for those all nighters! After her speech I had a glorious 4 hour nap. After my nap I ordered McCain/Palin bumper stickers and key chains!

Greg just told me that she might have to drop out because her 17 year old is pregnant?...does that really matter? Isn't Pres. Bush's daughter gay?...He still ran right. I am very excited for her to be a part of things.

Vice-President Cheney's daughter is gay. She is absolutely not dropping out, in fact, it's making her more normal to a lot of people.
She still has my vote!
