Let Sarah go to Michigan

When the news came out that the McCain campaign was leaving Michigan, the press was gleeful. McCain was giving up on an important blue collar state.
Now Sarah Palin has asked to go there and see if she can connect with the people of the state.

Let her go. Let her try to jump start the pro-life working class Catholic and evangelical voters.

Be bold.

Do not be afraid.

And please do not listen to your consultants who are afraid of their own shadow.
To win this race requires a strong bold and gutsy set of plans.

Where have those great youtube ads gone?
Have Sarah show up at a plant with her husband Todd and talk to the union workers. Let her tell them that they are being sold a bill of goods.

Have her go to the lower income areas where the schools are not so good and have her talk about parental choice in education. Have her challenge the Democrats to really care about the working class by supporting school choice.

Do not be afraid to focus on the pro-life message in Michigan. They have a very strong pro-life organization in Michigan Right to Life. Have her show up in a public event and invite the Catholics and the Evangelicals to join her. With this month being both National Down Syndrome Awareness month and Respect Life month, allow her to focus on the importance of respecting all innocent human life.

Give her two days - 48 hours and watch the numbers change.
