Sarah & Joe 's Laundromat

There she was, resplendent in black, striding out like a power-walker, and greeting Joe Biden like an assertive salesman, first-naming him right off the bat.
It took her about 15 seconds to define her persona — the straight-talking mom from regular America — and it was immediately clear that the night would be filled with tales of soccer moms, hockey moms, Joe Sixpacks, main-streeters, “you betchas” and “darn rights.” Somewhere in heaven Norman Rockwell is smiling.
She was surprisingly forceful on the subject of Iran (pronouncing Ahmadinejad better than her running mate) though she stepped over the line in claiming that Democrats sought to raise the “the white flag of surrender.”

While some basic top-load washers have plummeted in performance testing when it comes to cleaning ability, the Sarah Palin gets good scores for washing performance and costs less than a high-efficiency front loader. This model has capacity with a stainless steel tub and the usual wash cycles. It uses rotary dial controls. Also included is an automatic load balancer - a feature that's starting to disappear on less expensive washing machines. The most common owner complaint is that this washer's spin cycle isn't particularly strong, so clothes may need more drying time. (compare prices)
