Obama Speechwriter Is Voting for McCain-Palin

Topics: Political News and commentaries
Not only has this party belittled working people in this campaign, it has also been part of tearing down two female candidates. - Wendy Button

Wendy Button, a speechwriter for Barack Obama, John Edwards, and Hillary Clinton, is voting for John McCain and she credits both Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin as the reasons for her vote:
Governor Palin and I don't agree on a lot of things, mostly social issues. But I have grown to appreciate the Governor. I was one of those initial skeptics and would laugh at the pictures. Not anymore. When someone takes on a corrupt political machine and a sitting governor, that is not done by someone with a low I.Q. or a moral core made of tissue paper. When someone fights her way to get scholarships and work her way through college even in a jagged line, that shows determination and humility you can't learn from reading Reinhold Niebuhr. When a mother brings her son with special needs onto the national stage with love, honesty, and pride, that gives hope to families like mine as my older brother lives with a mental disability. And when someone can sit on a stage during the Sarah Palin rap on Saturday Night Live, put her hands in the air and watch someone in a moose costume get shot--that's a sign of both humor and humanity.

Has she made mistakes? Of course, she's human too. But the attention paid to her mistakes has been unprecedented compared to Senator Obama's "57 states" remarks or Senator Biden using a version of the Samuel Johnson quote, "There's nothing like a hanging in the morning to focus a man's thoughts."
Well, so much for the Sarah Palin is alienating independents mantra of the MSM, and indeed, the PUMA effect is real (HT - RedState)

Glad to see that at least one of the current crop of Democrats has the sense to see the truth about Sarah Palin.
Hopefully there are a lot more that we aren't hearing about. Hopefully that will show up on the election returns.

Wendy has not been in Mr. Obama employ since June 2007 at which time, she was also in Ms. Clinton's employ at the same time. Was she a Clinton spy. She continued working for Ms. Clinton until July 2007. I believe that she just wants a woman in the White House.
