Love it or hate it, P.U.M.As are “The Demographic” that will deliver this election to the eventual winner.
John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate to primarily appeal to the P.U.M.A voters out there *that means you*
Now, Palin IS NOT Hillary Clinton, and can never be Hillary Clinton, but this is a good sign of faith on McCain’s part that a sweetie‘s (to use Obamaspeak) place is not merely in the kitchen.
As P.U.M.As we obviously want to learn more about Palin, before giving the McCain/Palin ticket our full support.
Truth be told, for us, it is no longer an issue of whether to vote for Obama or not (as self-respecting P.U.M.As we won’t), but whether we would:
a) Avoid voting for President on election day
b) Write in a third-party candidate on election day
c) Write in Hillary’s name on election day
d) Vote for McCain/Palin
By picking Palin, McCain has done the most pragmatic thing possible to move us closer to category “D” …
Conversly, by picking Biden, Obama has done the most foolish thing possible to minimize the possibility of getting our votes.
