Barack Didn't Plan on McCain's "Barracuda"
Rookie United States Senator Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. planned to win the 2008 Democrat presidential nomination and then be elected in November.
One out of two is better than none.
Obama did NOT plan on his Republican opponent, war hero and veteran United States Senator John Sidney McCain's secret weapon: Sarah Barracuda, also known as Sarah Palin, the rookie Alaska governor and a former mayor who is a bit younger than Obama and much younger the Obama's running mate, veteran United States Senator Joseph Ropbinette Biden, yet has much more executive experience than the two of them put together.
Howard Fineman of MSNBC and Newsweek called Palin a "dangerous heat-seeking missile" aimed at the Democrats.
Dangerous for Obama and other Far Left Democrats, but a godsend to Democrats who do not share Obama's Marxist view of religion being something clung to out of bitterness over economic circumstances.
The fact is that the only one of the four Republican and Democrat presidential and vice presidential candidates, only one has any military experience and that's McCain.
The fact is that Palin has executive experience and neither of the Democrat candidates has executive experience.
Obama's political experience is strictly legislative. He lost a Democrat primary for a Congressional seat to a Black Panther and then became a partisan two-term Illinois state senator. The liberal Democrat establishment transformed him into a United States Senator and made him a national figure by designating him to read the keynote address at the 2004 Democrat national convention even before he was a United States Senator. (He's a very able speech reader, but not a great debater, so he stopped debating veteran United States Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as soon as it was politically possible.)
Biden's political experience is strictly legislative too. He served on the New Castle County Council from 1970 to 1972 and joined the United States Senate in 1973.
Pain has what it takes to stand up to the secular extremist smear machine intent on having the Obama/Biden ticket elected and she proved it big time in her sensational speech at the Republican national convention on September 3, 2008.
She was BETTER than great.
Wikipedia: "Palin attended Wasilla High School in Wasilla, Alaska, where she was the head of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter at the school, and the point guard and captain of the school's basketball team. She helped the team win the Alaska small-school basketball championship in 1982, hitting a critical free throw in the last seconds of the game, despite having an ankle stress fracture. She earned the nickname 'Sarah Barracuda' because of her intense play and was the leader of the team prayer before games."
No wonder the people who would put Justices on the United States Supreme Court who would strike "under God" from "The Pledge of Allegiance" are apoplectic these days.
"Barracudas... are harmless unless provoked....
"Being formidable hunters, they should be respected, as barracudas are perfectly capable of defending themselves against humans that harass them."
"Sarah Barracuda" is perfectly capable of defending herself, her family (including her special needs child whom she chose to deliver), her record, her values and her country.
Biden thuggishly (or was that Biden humor?) public reacted to veteran United States senator and 2000 Democrat vice presidential candidate Joseph Lieberman's speech endorsing the McCain/Palin ticket by inviting Lieberman (a much bigger man in personal stature, but a smaller own in physical stature) to the gym.
The problem for Obama/Biden is that people like McCain, Lieberman and "Sarah Barracuda" won't be bullied or cowed.
To those determined to force "Sarah Barracuda" off the Republican ticket: LIKE THE ELECTION OF OBAMA AS PRESIDENT, IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!

Biography - Michael J. Gaynor
Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.
Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.
The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.
Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
