McCain Chooses Palin as Running Mate
for a country
still wrapping its head around the idea of
the dark dynamic son of a hippie and a goat herder
waking up to the beauty queen hunter mom
was a jolt
a shock smacking of desperation
filling women with conflicted feelings
about the blatant pitch to Hillaryland
we will still be trying to find out who she is
and she will still be asking
what a vice president does
while practicing how to spell potato
has she even been to the Georgia in the U.S.?
an inner city?
a fish fry?
a black church?
a war zone?
she was good at basketball
but can she handle the nuclear football?
could this be the woman a 72-year-old heartbeat away?
