HILLS ARE ALIVE

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Hans Kaiser, vice pres­i­dent of cam­paign and pub­lic af­fairs for the D.C.-based po­lit­i­cal opin­ion re­search firm Moore In­for­ma­tion, is liken­ing Repub­li­can vi­cepres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to Fraulein Maria of “Sound of Mu­sic” fame.

“How do Democrats solve a prob­lem like Sarah?” says Mr. Kaiser, who re­calls Baron Ge­org Rit­ter von Trapp’s emo­tional plea: “You’ve brought mu­sic back into the house. I’d for­got­ten. Fraulein, I want you to stay. I ask you to stay more than you know.”

To para­phrase von Trapp, Mr. Kaiser says Mrs. Palin “has brought con­fi­dence back into the Repub­li­can house, some­thing the GOP seemed to have for­got­ten over the last sev­eral years.”
