Republican Women in the News

The two biggest names in political news this week are Sarah Palin and Christine O'Donnell.

Former Alaskan Governor Palin went to a Republican fundraiser in Iowa, an early primary state for the 2012 election. Writers and political experts couldn't help but mention the implications for an assumed Palin run for the Presidency in 2012.

Palin made a clever joke about the situation. She joked that she couldn't go jogging because the headlines the next day would read: "Palin, in Iowa, decides to run..."

O'Donnell, the GOP nominee for US Senate in Delaware, has seen the worst of it over the last few days from the biased liberal media. Liberal Rosie O'Donnell (no relation) sounds afraid of her.

In spite of this, O'Donnells star seem to be on the rise. She gets almost as much attention as Sarah Palin in the last few days. Her national brand seems to be growing. Her fundraising is soaring.

She laid out her Conservative beliefs to a Christian audience on Friday and dropped this sound bite on the medias head. Talking about the insanity of liberal policies in schools, she said...

"They will let your teenage daughter buy an abortion, but they won't let her buy a sugary drink from a school vending machine." Pow!

The media is portraying her as a fringe candidate, but I like her.
I like her a lot.
