Caffeinated Conservative of 2008: Sarah Palin

Caffeinated Conservative of 2008: Sarah Palin

Dec 29th, 2008

by Shane Vander Hart.
Human Events gave out a conservative of the year awardI thought – hey why shouldn’t CT have an award as well?!  So I bring you the first ever Caffeinated Conservative award.  This year I concur with Human Events that the conservative most worthy of receiving this most “prestigious” award would be Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska.
I choose Governor Palin for a number of reasons:
  • I have never thought I’d see Bush Derangement Syndrome eclipsed so quickly and with so much vitriol, as what I saw after Senator McCain selected the Governor to be his running mate.  She’s got to be doing something right
  • Continuing to be a reformer – she is turning down a pay raiseShe is the 24th lowest paid Governor, and has said that it is inappropriate for her to take a pay raise in the midst of her current term.
  • She is also a great role model for girls who can see that you can be a real feminist, and pro-life.  My kids and I enjoyed seeing her come speak in Des Moines.
For some not so serious reasons:

  • Then very fitting for being a Caffeinated Conservative – a coffee lover.
    Update 1/28/09: Talking with Eric (one of the contributors here) we thought it would be fun to send her a letter to inform her of her selection for this “honor” since it was pretty unlikely she’d hear about it any other way.  I included a certificate and a  Starbucks gift card as a token of our appreciation (It is the Caffeinated Conservative award after all).  I was pleasantly surprised by a thank you card from the Governor today when I got the mail.

    “Thank you so much for the Starbucks gift card and for selecting me as your “Caffeinated Conservative of 2008″ award recipient.  I appreciate your thoughtfulness.  God bless.”

    No, thank you Governor for your commitment to conservative principles and for being an incredible role model for young women, as well as, those who have special needs children.  I wish I could do more, but I already blew my annual budget on the card, LOL.  We appreciate you and wish you the best!  Like I said in the letter – you can count on my prayer support.
