HILLS ARE ALIVE
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.”
