Sarah Palin: will this MILF become a VPILF?
Your friendly old Exile spent a happy Saturday searching for anything sleazy that relates to Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska. However, it is with the deepest regret that it must be announced that not a single Sarah Palin upskirt or nip-slip photo has so far emerged. It was hoped that the Sarah Palin nude photo that was going the rounds might turn out to be genuine, but alas for all our hopes it turned out to be a fake. Given this tragic lack of sleaze - we can't even find a genuine Sarah Palin bikini shot - the only thing to do is shrug our shoulders and write a serious posting. . .

Say what you like about John McCain, he wasn't afraid to step up to the crease when he picked a prime MILF as his running-mate. However, does she have what it takes to become the VPILF? Your friendly old Exile reckons that she does, and that McCain made a wise choice when he tapped the former beauty queen as his vice-presidential candidate.

The Democrats are making hay with her supposed lack of experience, as if anyone can be trained to be the chief executive of any country, let alone one as vast and powerful as the United States. A couple of months ago some bright spark registered VPilf.com and already the seriously funny YouTube videos are starting to appear. You don't believe me? Check this one out and even if you do support the McCain-Palin ticket, I still defy you not to laugh.

So why do we think that McCain played a blinder with this choice? Let's just think about it.

What British people forget, if they ever really knew, is that most Americans do not live in New York City and Los Angeles - San Francisco. Not only that, but they tend to dislike the European minded, university educated elitists who do. Most Americans live in the bit of the country that is located between those two coasts, which is the part of America that New York and LA calls "flyover America" because they only get to see it when looking down from 20,000 feet.

So what have we got in McCain-Palin? To start with we have a war veteran who picked the mother of a soldier who will be going off to Iraq later on this year. Americans may not like the war against Iraq, but they do revere their soldiers. So start by thinking about the veteran and the veteran's mother, and what a nice ring that has to it.

Then think about luscious, pouting Sarah who likes hunting, fishing and wearing fur, just like a lot of other girls in small town America do. Even the beauty pageants that first brought her to anyone's notice 25 years ago can be presented as a small town girl doing what small town girls always have done. The boys go off into the army and the girls try to win a beauty contest; it's about getting on, and often those are the only options that flyover America has.

It might be argued that neither McCain nor Palin actually come into that category, but that's not the point. It's the impression that counts, and there is a long tradition in American politics of successful candidates who can create that impression of home-spun folksiness. Andrew Jackson was actually one of the largest slaveowners in Tennessee when he was elected president in 1828, but that didn't stop him making a big thing about having been born in a log cabin. Conversely, being seen as a remote figure who is part of the eastern intellectual establishment is a serious handicap to an American politician, as Adlai Stephenson found out in 1952 when the Republicans successfully portrayed him as an "egghead," who did not understand ordinary people and their concerns.

Barak Obama is in many ways the new Adlai Stephenson, with his smart ways, and smooth talk about how small town Americans "cling to guns or religion". That fat-headed remark will have gone down a treat in New York, but out in the hills it made people seethe. The issue is not that Obama is black, exactly, but it is that he is an eastern elitist who is black.

That is why all these attacks on small town Sarah will fail. The really idiotic thing is that the so-called left just don't get it. Take the outraged comments to this wimsical piece about Sarah, if you don't get it, either. Then just consider that the concerns of commentators like that are so far removed from the concerns of ordinary Americans that they could be two separate nations living under one flag. So when liberal hacks like Linda Bergthold damn Sarah Palin for being anti-abortion, you can almost hear the white south moving into the McCain camp, because they are anti-abortion too. When that same hack reminds people that Sarah is a member of the National Rifle Association, the pile of votes for McCain grows even higher, because millions of people all across flyover America keep guns. Finally, when she is damned for not having any experience, that probably amounts to yet more votes, because that means that she isn't a part of the fancy college bunch back east gang, with their high-faluting phrases, who don't have to worry about mortgages, being laid off and how to pay the bills.

The fact that Sarah Palin is also the foxiest MILF that ever made a normal man take a deep breath is just an added bonus. It is for all these reasons that John McCain really did play a blinder when he chose her, and it now looks almost odd-on that he will be sworn in as President of the United States next January.

I think McCain just likes beauty queens. He dumped his first wife (who'd stood by him through Vietnam) to marry Cindy beauty-queen with rich daddy. One wonders what his cabinet would be like if he got elected!

Here kitty, kitty, kitty. Let's be nice...

Have you heard the story that is going around to the effect that Sarah may not be the mother of the child just born? It could be her 17 year old daughter's.
