Sarah Palin

I have returned from the heat of Sin City unscathed, just in time to host my Blog Talk Radio Show, Political Pistachio Radio. Today's guest is Stephen R. Maloney who is one of the national coordinators for Sarah Palin for Vice-President on the Republican national ticket.

Steve is a former college teacher of English and a writer for many publications (including Fortune and the American Spectator). He wrote speeches for many large corporations and has been a political activist involved in many campaigns, starting with Newt Gingrich in the 70's and extending through the Diana Lynn Irey campaign last year.

Sarah Palin is the current Governor of Alaska (the 11th), and is youngest governor in Alaska's history, as well as the first female to hold the office. She is the former mayor of Wasilla, AK. Palin steadfastly maintains that she is a conservative, evidenced by her strong position on abortion (she is pro-life) and she opposes same-sex marriage.

Steve will be available to not only help us with learning about this fascinating candidate, but perhaps to also educated us on her stance regarding certain issues. And with a little luck, perhaps we will be able to get Sarah on the show in the near future as well.

Tune in to Political Pistachio today at 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern to catch the show.

James Gilmore and Sarah Palin

Yesterday's Political Pistachio Radio, which is now playing on the media player on this site if you are listening within a week of the broadcast, was a successful episode. Governor James Gilmore, one of the more influential members of the Republican Party, took time from his busy schedule to be a part of the program. We spoke with him about his recent withdrawal from the Presidential Race, as well as his position on a number of issues, including the war on terror and the immigration issue. Listener participation was amazing. I had a number of callers submit questions to Mr. Gilmore, and I also fielded a number of questions submitted by Yahoo Messenger. Thank you for the support.

By the way, BlogTalk Radio also posted a blog entry on the broadcast. This is the second time Political Pistachio has been recognized by the host network.

Thank you, my friends, for your support, and continued listenership of the show. The growth of the radio show has been tremendous, and that growth is due to you, the listeners.

Next Saturday on Political Pistachio Radio I will be joined by Stephen R. Maloney, who is one of the national coordinators for Sarah Palin for Vice-President on the Republican national ticket. As always, the live feed will air at 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern.
