John McCain has announced his choice for running mate, and it’s Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
Prolife social conservative NRA member and soon to officially be the first female Republican nominee to the U.S. vice-presidency, Palin graduated in 1987 from the University of Idaho with a degree in journalism, was a beauty queen and later mayor of her home town of Wasilla, AK before being elected to governor in 2006.
This completely undercuts the “inexperience” attacks against Obama, but, hey, if she gets to Veep and McCain keels over, she could be a real-life Laura Roslin, with chamalla extract references and all. More on Sarah Palin from US News. Moose stew!
