Wow ... its all over the blogosphere and newspaper headlines. The Right Loves her, the Left Mocks her. The VP nominee for McCain - Sarah Palin. Is it possible that McCain confused his VP with picking his next wife?? So -that's the ticket! Beauty over Brains! A sportscaster over substance! The Old Man and the She!
McCain picked a former Beauty Queen as a trophy VP.
Sorry Romney, Pawlenty and Liberman - apparently, you 3 don't have what it takes to be McCain's running mate.
I have nothing against Sarah Palin (I just don't know her). From what I've read - she is a nice lady. She is a mother of 5 and Pro-Life. She gave birth to her son knowing he has Down's Syndrome. The State of Alaska loves her - an over 80% approval rating. So, being as that may - is she equipped to lead a country and the mess that we're in?
Hmmm? where does she stand on the main issues America and the World is dealing with? Nobody knows! No foreign Policy experience, no understanding of domestic crisis or national security, no lengthy political credentials. What is her political background?
She is the elected Governor of Alaska - but only been in that office for less than 2 years. Prior to being Governor, she was the Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska - population less than 8000. Wow - I knew student body Presidents that dealt with more students on campus than that town.
Oh - some fun fact, the population of Alaska is about 670,000 (US census bureau 2006est).
His selection seems kind of ill-informed and reactionary - but I digress.
It is all said and done. The Republicans have their new VP candidate. We'll hear more of her in the coming days and at the RNC.
Since Cheney has been pulling Bush's chain for 8 years, maybe McCain selected Palin to pull his chain if they take office!
