Former Montana Governor Offers Insights into Palin, Politics

Montana’s former Gov. Judy Martz, a Republican who served from 2001 to 2005, said her tenure in politics offers unique insight into Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

Here’s what Martz learned: The women’s movement is hypocritical, Martz said, because it doesn’t celebrate all women, only those who align themselves with it. Too often the press ignores policy, favoring gaffes instead. Politics is tough on families. And although the electorate continually asks for authenticity, it seems to reward the phonies.

The connection between Martz and Palin is less direct than intuitive. The two have never met. Yet, like Palin, Martz is a woman for whom faith is primary. Both are conservative, socially, and very much pro-business. Both are confident in front of crowds but lack the stick-to-the-script-iveness or rhetorical seamlessness that typifies polished politicians like George W. Bush or Bill Clinton.
