I confess

Yesterday I was at my sister's house, and she mentioned that she found it kind of amazing that I was able to write a balanced story for the Globe, about A-frames.

You know, given that I have expressed my personal opinion about the signs on this blog.

I've written about that to some extent, but this isn't about me.

I watched Gov. Sarah Palin the other day being interviewed by Charles Gibson. She said she was "pro-life," but insisted that that is her personal opinion. Later I saw on CNN a report about how she has never tried to inject this personal opinion about abortion into Alaska politics.

And I thought ... OK, so if I can do it, so can she.

I don't know if she could/would put aside her personal feelings, but I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. On that issue. For now.

Let's hope you draw the line at her banning books at the library.

But Bubba, she denies that she ever intended to ban any books. If we can't believe a hockey mom, who can we trust?

bubba z (from the crazy center) said...

Well, if she denies it then it must be true.

My mom is a former hockey mom (of 5) and turns 72 next week - I guess she's qualified to be both president and VP. Then again, my mom went to one college instead of 5, and graduated near the top of her class rather than the bottom - so that could be a problem - but regular people like her.

She sounds like a winner to me! As long as she lives somewhere with a view of a foreign country, that is ...

bubba's mom for president said...

No, but my father was a marine so she also has military experience.

For foreign policy experience, she is a regular viewer of British TV.

That settles it ... Bubba's mom for President (write in)! (p.s. make sure she fixes her hair in an "updo")
