My Political Views ~ The Beginning | Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde

I finally updated the My Political Views page here at Ramblings of a Misguided Blonde.  The original piece can still be found at My Political Views ~ The Beginning.  There is and was so much more I need to say.  I wish I could afford to be apolitical, but I just can’t.  The Republican primary takes place in Michigan on Tuesday.  I’m left voting for the “best” of a bunch of bad options.  Unfortunately, I’m not sure who would be a truly good option.  There is a reason why the best and brightest avoid running for political office.

Please feel free to look around at the new page.  I’m always looking for feedback and/or discussion.

Sarah Palin’s “Restoring Honor” Rally Speech
I Fought for You – and I’ll Do It Again – Bookworm Room

Sarah Palin’s speech is simply wonderful.  You either love her or hate her; nothing I can say will change that.  While her tone and style is all her own, she is the first politician since Ronald Reagan that I thoroughly enjoy listening to give a speech.  As much as I like George W. Bush’s Texas twang, he was literally painful watch at times.  Bill Clinton many times appeared too irrelevant for my taste, and I don’t care for Obama’s rhetoric at all.  He is as painful to watch as George W. Bush, but I digress.

What I really enjoyed about Sarah Palin’s speech was its content, not style.  It is truly inspirational.  I’m so tired of focusing on all the bad situations at home and abroad.  It is time we found courage on a personal level and as a country.  We shouldn’t forget those who gave so much for our freedom.

That takes me to Bookworm’s post above.  The museum she describes sounds wonderful!  If I am ever in Seattle, I will definitely go!  I love that it doesn’t just honor pilots, but the designers and engineers as well.  We could all use a lesson in courage at the moment.
