Thank You John And Sarah
Thank you to Senator John McCain for showing the world what a class act he is in defeat.
Would that other politicians facing his situation show the same balance between congratulating his opponent and gratitude to his supporters. Thank you to the Senator for his statesmanlike character in conducting a campaign which by any metric, was honourable and decent.
Even in this photograph above you can see the Arizona Senator try to quell the more vociferous in the crowd, so that no ill-spirited message carry the day in the name of the Republican Party.
Thank you also to Governor Sarah Palin for her fiery demeanour, her conservative values and her incredible, almost unfathomable frontier spirit.
She endured a super-concentrated potion of media and popular scrutiny for the better part of 2 months, in what would've depressed or defeated a lesser woman. Her eyes glistened with tears as she heard her running mate concede defeat, and so did mine, as I crumpled my face in anguish just looking at her standing on that podium.
But I am proud of her in victory as I am in defeat for all that she meant to Conservatives in this inevitably Democratic year.
Is it too early to look forward to 2012? Yes.
But let everyone on Sundries know that 2012 cannot come soon enough -- it will usher in my support of Sarah Palin for President.
Everyone has their time. God knows the reason why that is. But I know that one day her time will come and when it does, we will all be there for Sarah...again.
