chooses Idahoan Sarah Palin, a moose-hunting, fisher-babe, free market
Governor of Alaska, as Vice Prez running mate on GOP ticket
(Aug 29, 2008)
Response by Barack Obama to McCain's choice of a woman for vice president,
– GOP presidential candidate John McCain has pulled off the political
marketing move of the century by choosing a free market, moose hunting,
salmon fishing, fiscal Conservative woman, the current Governor of Alaska,
as his VP running mate for the 2008 presidential elections.
Note that John
McCain -- unlike boo-boo brain Barack Obama -- did not fail to implement
Cardinal Rule # 1 in Basic Marketing 101A: "Sell the sizzle, not the
steak." Make no mistake about it, Sarah Palin, as the first GOP woman
who may become the Vice President of the United States, is the sizzle.
But we get a bonus
in the steak department, too. Sarah Palin, a native of Idaho, is a
mother of five children, caretaker of her youngest child born with Down Syndrome, an
outdoors lady who hunts moose, fishes for salmon, ran a successful fishing
business with her husband, plays sports, ran a video communications
business, and single-handedly kicked the corrupt butts of the GOP Good Ol
Boys out of Alaskan politics in 2006, 07, and 08.
Sarah Palin was the Head of an Oil Commission, is gung-ho to allow drilling
in Anwar in Alaska, and leans heavily toward free market, Libertarian,
fiscal Conservative views.
Unlike Barack Obama
who fell asleep at Harvard during Basic Marketing 101A and blew his big
chance to take the 2008 presidency if only he had chosen a woman, Hillary Clinton,
as his running mate -- John McCain will no doubt benefit greatly by winning
over at least 20% of the Democratic women who said they would not vote for Obama without Hillary.
Hey, Obama, you snooze, you lose.
At this point, Bill
and Hillary Clinton -- recently dumped by Barack Obama because BO's wife
Michelle Obama didn't like the color of Hillary's traveling pants suits in
the Primary Debates -- are probably cheering in their hotel rooms, shouting
at the ceiling, "Yo, Obama, we told you so, you marketing dolt."
Look for the
pistol-packing mama from Alaska, Gov Palin,
to win over a lot more voters including previously undecided Independent
women voters and many of the 18 million voters who voted for Hillary
Clinton, 47% of whom said they, too, were undecided about Obama.
objective of the two presidential candidates is to
win the election -- not worry about what
to do with, for example, a VP such as loose cannon Hillary Clinton IF Obama
wins -- then John McCain is correctly "Selling the sizzle," Sarah
Palin, while Barack Obama is busy losing the battle by trying to "Sell the
steak," the same-old, same-old, tired, left Liberal bullshit of Joe Biden, a
35-year veteran of our corrupt U.S. Congress. Once again, in Basic Marketing 101A,
you snooze, you lose.
choosing Joe Biden does not differentiate the Obama left Liberal ticket from the standard
socialist diatribes we've heard from the Democrats over the last 35 years.
With McCain's latest choice of a 44-year old pistol-packing mama from Alaska
who recently cleaned out the corrupt GOP cronies in her own party, it is the
Republicans who should be chanting, "Time for a Change," instead
of Obama and Biden who are offering nothing but their ho-hum Fascist Business Model which has been operating in Washington
by both parties over the last 50 years.
Last night, Obama
criticized John McCain's platform by saying McCain was not a bad guy, MCCain just doesn't "get it." Now it appears that it's Barack Obama
who didn't "get it" by not choosing a woman, Hillary Clinton, as his running mate.
The real marketing question is: Does Barack Obama "get it" today?
Probably, but it looks like Obama has discovered his mistake too late as he
responded to John McCain's choice of a woman for vice president with only
one word, "Damn!" -- FM Duck
