I received an email today implying that Palin was the latest incarnation of Teddy Roosevelt. Sure, they both were tapped for VP when young, had been governor a short time, and both liked to shoot. But TR had been a military commander in a shooting war and later Assistant Secretary of the Navy. He had been a world traveler in an age when that wasn’t so easy, he had written several books by then, and the state of which he was governor (New York) had counties back then with bigger and more diverse populations than does the state of Alaska now.
Roosevelt the elder was also a staunch conservationist, a big business buster, and a social liberal.
But while I was doing some casual research, I found this conservative post about Palin’s boost to GOP fund raising and her promise for right-thinking Christians. Wanna see pix of the teen wannabe VP in hot pants? Just scroll down in that post.
