Sarah Palin Was A High School Point Guard

The Republican vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin is a former high school basketball player, 1984 runner up for Miss Alaska, and a former TV sportscaster.

Here’s some old photos of the old hoops star who won a state title in Alaska.

Palin is the governor of Alaska.

Great day for hoops fans because Sen. Barack Obama is a hoops player and that means either the President or Vice President will represent the game of basketball in the next administration.

I Was At The Beverly Hilton With John Edwards

Yep, I was staying there.  July 21st.  The same night former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was caught seeing former staffer Rielle Hunter at the Beverly Hills Hilton.

I was sleeping in the late 2AM hour when the National Enquirer busted him coming out of her hotel room with his alleged child.  Edwards pulled a Billie Jean proclaiming, “the kid is not my son”. 

Here’s my question, if they affair was over and he was repairing his marriage with his wife, why did he go visit Hunter in Beverly Hills and her child?  Who does this?  It sure makes me think he is the father.  Hunter is also being funneled to Hunter by a former Edwards staffer.

Boy, I was suckered. 

I really thought highly of John Edwards and believed in his campaign message.  He was a champion of the working people, he wanted health care for those who could not afford it. 

As a voter I don’t want to hear Democrats or Republicans ever talk about “morals” in campaigns again.  They just don’t have any.

The former North Carolina Senator was running around on his wife who has battled cancer.  That makes Edwards look really bad as a human. 

 We all make mistakes, but this man blasted President Bill Clinton for his conduct with Monica Lewinsky saying nine years ago, “I think this president has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter.”   Shame on Edwards.
