Picking Marco Rubio as a running mate to connect with Hispanics is like trying to connect to Jewish voters with someone who is Jewish and speaks Hebrew -- but openly hostile to Israel and friendly to Iran. The choice is absurd and reflects a deep-seated ignorance.
With a tough image, Hispanic background and Palin endorsement, this Republican gem will help make the party shine after the primary dust settles. Named "Woman of the Year" and "Prosecutor of the Year," she portrays the image of a tough and competent yet cheerful leader.
Rather than being the "wonderful mother" of the narrative the GOP is spinning, Palin is putting her ambitions ahead of her daughter's well-being at a time when a daughter needs her mother most... a little privacy wouldn't hurt, either.
