Week Two - Sarah's View From Above
Former Alaskan Governer & Republican Party's biggest ever rockstar Sarah Palin undertook the honor of Grand Marshall for a day at the NASCAR Seasons opener - The Daytona 500 last sunday and had the view of a lifetime after amplifying in age old tradition the command of "Gentlemen start your engines." Okay so it's not the office or as they like to call it these days the workplace. The point is, Sarah Palin is one of only two female candidates in history to be given the prestige of running for the nations highest office. Being a NASCAR fan myself of course, I, myself, couldn't think of anyone better to head proceedings at the worlds most famous speedway in Florida, than the comeback queen of the media's razors edge and pollitic's alternative view. Hovering above us, is an accompanying frame of Sarah checking out Ryan Newmans No. 39 U.S. Army Car. Some cars get all the luck I guess, or is it just the paint job. Did I mention, I love racing. Further along, on Sarah's racey day out, she also got to meet the King, Richard Petty and got to listen in on some of the pit crew calls on the ariel monitors.
