The Palin Effect

Isn't it amazing how quickly things can change. There is clearly truth in the old adage that a week is a long time in politics. The US presidential election has taken on a new impetus and a new sense of excitement, in the space of just one week. What a difference McCain's choice of Alaskan Governor, Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate has made to the race. There is no doubt that this choice and the resulting increased popularity of the republican team is seen as a 'real and present danger' by the democrats, the liberal media and the pro-abortionists.

There were immediate and sustained attempts by liberal media at character assassination of Governor Palin, which seemed to rebound on those who spread the stories, and then there was a promise by major pro-abortion organisations to pump millions of extra dollars into the campain to elect the pro-abortion democratic team of Obama and Biden.

Despite all of this, recent opinion polls show a huge swing in favour of the Mc. Cain and Palin team.
