Palin shows she can even lead opponents

Posted: Friday, May 05, 2006

It’s been a pleasure watching our life-long Alaskan gal, Sarah Palin campaign for Governor these past six months. I’ve always been impressed with her leadership skills, experience, ethics and energy. Sarah certainly tells it like it is and is obviously not your typical politician. I knew she’d be my candidate when she told GOP bosses Randy Ruedrich and Frank Murkowski to take a hike.

Her campaign encapsulates who she is and what makes her stand out from the “more of the same” crowd. I found it particularly interesting to see that her opponent, John Binkley, recently redesigned his website to resemble the site Sarah’s had for the past six months! He’s even started to copy the same campaign colors, fonts, and design elements that Sarah’s campaign has also been using since October. Recently even his speaking themes have mirrored Sarah’s.

This may not seem like a big deal to some, but not having an original idea and taking credit for someone else’s hard work should give us a clue about how Binkley operates. I think Sarah should be flattered that Binkley copies her ideas and messages. It shows she can lead even her political opponents.

In all fairness though, maybe Binkley should make a donation to Sarah’s campaign to help defray the costs they’ve incurred for all of their ideas that he’s now using!
