Yes folks, we have a new feature here at Cranial Vault -- a guest editorial! I personally am all atingle, especially since I haven't had anything to write about lately. This is actually a bold-faced lie (I really need to look that expression up one of these days) -- I have PLENTY to write about but nothing I'm ready to share with my ever-expanding public (or with my mommy) just yet (if ever)... So, to save the day, here's my dear and hugely-talented friend, Colleen Finn:
"Hey, I had a really bad feeling today as I was reading some of the posts from moms about this VP pick. Feel free to post this on your blog because I need to get recognition if it goes down like I think it will:
Prediction: In 2-3 weeks, Palin is going to back out from the VP nomination. She will cite family values and introspection which will lead her to make the decision to stay in Alaska and be there for her newborn son and as support for her pregnant daughter. She will make it very clear that McCain did nothing but encourage her to stay on, but supports her choice.
Everyone will 'Ooh' and 'Ahh' her decision, calling her a strong woman who made the right decision. Even surrounded by her current scandals, she will be praised. This will be followed by a boost in McCain support. "Way to go for choosing a woman, for sticking to party lines, for being open minded, blah, blah, blah" Then McCain will choose, as a running mate, whomever he had in mind from the beginning. Probably a choice that may not have been favorable weeks ago, but will now be heralded as a great decision after the Palin selection. The only thing I'm unsure about is who the real VP choice will be.
Either way, this current VP choice is a head scratcher in so many ways: out of the blue, inexperience, family issues, children issues, and the list goes on. Steve Schmidt is not an idiot and may just be an evil genius. I have a feeling that this entire thing was orchestrated for a bigger plan. Sure I sound like a conspiracy theorist...but let's just see how the next few months play out.
Do I get some kind of prize if I'm right?"
I think she's got a point here and makes a compelling argument. Should we work on some sort of prize? Maybe a free "McCain/Palin 2008" t-shirt? We may be able to get them cheap in the coming weeks...
I look forward to Steve Schmidt's mother's response. :)
