Former Beauty Queen Chosen as McCain's Running Mate

Out of left field literally and figuratively, John McCain's choice for his vice president is the governor of our least populous state, Alaska. Sarah Palin is a 44-year-old "maverick" who just gave birth in April to her fifth child, a boy with Down Syndrome.

What's she going to do when McCain croaks and Iran attacks? Unleash the sled dogs?

This reminds me of when the Republicans put a guy who organized horse shows in charge of FEMA.

Not to mention the choice of the cadaverous Michael Chertoff, a fancy New York lawyer with no experience in law enforcement, who was picked to be the head of Homeland Security.

I can't wait to see how this one plays out. McCain is this close to checking out and his running mate is a soccer mom whose experience in foreign affairs is limited to dealing with a Latina cashier at Wal-Mart.

Somebody tell me this announcement was really an SNL spoof.

PS: Governor Pallin is being investigated for having a state trooper removed from her detail for personal reasons. Tsk. Tsk.

Oh, I think this was a very smart move on his part.  I have really enjoyed watching the democratic primary this time. I do not think this race will be a landslide.  The wrost thing about this race is all of the commericals we will watch, not knowing the spin on them.  uhh, you don't do those commericals, do you?  Anne

Nice try. Palin's bro-in-law (the Trooper) threatened to shoot her father and the threat was reported to his superiors but nothing was done. Given your stance on abusers, you seem to be ignoring your own advice.
Palin outed the recording of her own employee making the call to the head of the Troopers and had no involvement in it.

She's the whole package. It will drive the Democrats nuts and I can't wait until the comments about her lack of experience start coming in. Mark my words, she will dice Biden into Ginsu-bites in a debate.

As they say on the streets, you've been served.

She is still being investigated.

The "sled dogs" comment killed me.  Well played.  I don't get the pick-it smacks of a "see I'm pro-life, so there" salvo by McCain.  There are other women conservatives that would have been a better choice.

But hey, at least this clinches the three Alaskan electoral votes for the GOP, because we all know how much of a toss up that state is...wait a tic...

This has been a very odd year. No one running is Hispanic? Maybe next time. Someone will need to approve the deal for our very first national language.
