McCain will Bite the Dust.

Sometimes I worry about my girl, Sarah Palin. She’s young, inexperienced, and the girl from the next snowdrift in Alaska. And I worry that she doesn’t have the proper political mentoring to keep her on a steady keel during the presidential election.

But I read an interesting article: Sarah has had a lot of political mentoring particularly from more politically connected men. Unfortunately, some of them are either out of politics or aren’t on speaking terms with Sarah. But others still have her back! For now. They include:

  • John Stein, former mayor of Wasilla. She spread false rumors that he was Jewish and wasn’t married to his wife to defeat him in the race for Wasilla’s mayor.
  • Rep. Victor Kohring. He’s in jail and Sarah doesn’t visit. He’s the one that got her into state politics.
  • State GOP chairman Randy Ruedrich. She called him a corrupt thief misusing resources when on the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. He’s one of the people she considers a poster child for corruption in the Alaskan political system that she supposedly brought down. But he’s still willing to hug her on TV during the Republican National Convention. Thank goodness he’s still alive and running the Republican part in Alaska: She needs all the support she can get.
  • Sen. Ted Stevens. He’s still in office, but going to trial for corruption. Thank goodness for Sarah. She got an early political start with him running his 527 group “Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, Inc.,” from 2003 to 2005. The goal of the organization was to raise unlimited funds from corporate donors to help promote republican women in government. There is no IRS record on how much the corporation eventually raised.

The point I’m trying to make is that Sarah befriends political mentors. Then when things get shaky, or when she outgrows them, she makes expedient decisions for her own survival. John McCain is a 72-year old man with a long list of serious medical conditions. I don’t think he’ll last long in a Palin-McCain administration.
