No no, I saw a bio on her...
Her father moved them to Alaska to fish and hunt, literally. He was a
huge outdoorsman. There is homevideo of all of the girls, including
Sara, shooting and hunting. The moose thing was before she was married,
at least the first one was. She seriously is a homesteader type, not
afraid of the wilderness or of getting her hands dirty. Regardless of
what you think about her beliefs or politics, everyone here would admire
what I saw on TV.

Teachers are considered blue collar here. Her father also told all of
his kids that they would be responsible for their own college education.
That is kind of ironic considering that there *were* teachers.

I made a huge long post on her education a month or so ago. With the
exception of the beauty pageant scholarship, she did it all on her own.

I think too much has been made of McCain's cancer. He has one of the
most common and treatable types, and it is in remission. Even if it
comes back, he is likely to be cured again. And yes, I do mean cured...
I saw what's his name, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, talk about both McCain and
Obama's health records. The Doc was one of a handful of docs that had
full access to McCains medical records. Obama has not released his
medical records, just a statement from his personal physician saying he
has been treated for colds and minor injuries and such. Gupta says,
basically, he is running on a doctor's note. They talked about his
smoking, his eating unhealthy foods, his weight loss, etc. Obama may be
running under the Kennedy fallacy...recall that everyone thought Kennedy
was healthy because he was young, but he had all kinds of serious problems.
Have you seen McCain's mother? The woman looks younger than him!
As to his age and health, there have been plenty of leaders older and in
less health than him. Think about Nelson Mandela...

There we go agreeing again!
