I have to confess that I have been getting a bit fed up with American politics. It will happen and then we simply have to deal with it. But I have found myself fascinated with the McCain – Palin idea. Having been a fan of Northern Exposure, it becomes all the more interesting. That whole programme reminded me of living in the Western Isles, many moons ago. People get more interesting when there are less of them and more country. So Sarah Palin appeals to something in my psyche. I don’t like guns and abhor shooting animals for sport, so even I am puzzled as to why I pay attention.
Perhaps it is to do with someone daring to stand up for what she believes as well as believing in herself at the same time. Anyway, I should plead the caveat that I am only seeing what the party machine wants me to see. That is the way the press and media work. Blogs are different though. Here, people ramble on about how they feel and what they think. That is what is helping to change the world despite rulers, leaders and politicians.
