Good Morning America (thanks HuffPo) ran this hilarious segment of Sarah Palin’s bestest friends – the “Elite 6″ – talking about Sarah Palin. It’s like a soap opera episode, for realz and quite entertaining. The non-verbal communication is classic here with one friend talking about how her friend Sarah is “honest as the day is long” as another friend shakes her head with disgust and contempt. Yet another friend seeks to clarify at one point saying: “I support Sarah as a friend. And I can’t necessarily say who that I’m going to vote for.” She says this with a smirky smile.

3 out of 4 friends disagree with her strongly on abortion rights (more or less a parallel of the American public demographics on that) and one on polar bear protection. 3 out of 4 won’t recommend her as Vice President. They join Sarah Palin’s mother-in-law Faye:

Faye Palin admitted she enjoys hearing Barack Obama speak, and still hasn’t decided which way she’ll vote.

“We don’t agree on everything. But I respect her passion,” she said. “Being pro-life is who Sarah is.”

[...]

“I’m not sure what she brings to the ticket other than she’s a woman and a conservative. Well, she’s a better speaker than McCain.”

What does it say about a person when her best friends and her own mother-in-law aren’t strong, 100% supporters? Wow — the people who know her best can’t say unequivocally that Palin has their vote. What a winner! The Obama campaign should watch and learn — the pro-choice argument against Palin is potentially a hot button issue and deal-breaker for a lot of women. The threat to women’s rights that Sarah Palin represents needs to be hammered home to women who may be weighing their options.
