Does Governor Sarah Palin want us to call her a hockey mom or pit bull? Whatever you want to call Sarah Palin one thing you can’t call her is a wimp. According to People magazine GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin let her hair down Wednesday, wowing the Republican National Convention with a spunky punch at critics of her experience – and a coupon-clipping approach to government waste.
Palin’s approach is loved by die hard Republicans. Hockey moms were out in full force during the Michigan delegation, wearing jerseys self described as “Hockey Mom.” Palin acknowledged all the Hockey Moms by stating, “I gotta love the hockey moms. You know what they say about the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick.”
Making sure to let the audience know that she is the person who will get the house in order, Palin stressed she cleaned house when she became governor of Alaska. “That luxury jet was over the top. I put it on eBay,” she said. “And I thought we could muddle through without the governor’s personal chef – although I’ve got to admit that sometimes my kids sure miss her.”
Continuing to brand a family image, Palin had her immediate family in attendance including Levi Johnston, boyfriend of Palin’s pregnant 17-year-old daughter Bristol, sat in the family’s VIP box holding Bristol’s hand.
I wonder is this a really good PR move? The Republican Party is quick to attack on family values and family issues. Are they practicing what they preach?
