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!
(If you groaned at the title of this post, blame Tom.)
“the first female nominee to the U.S. vice-presidency”
Er, first Republican nominee. Paging Ms. Ferraro.
Gah, I knew that but I forgot it. Thanks, missing word added.
Welcome to PALIN-DROME! Two candidates enter, one candidate leaves!
Oh, and she’s a creationist. Election over, book it, done.
I recently saw (today)a interview on C-span that was taped on 2-28-08 and when Sarah Palin was asked about her family there she replied that she had 4 children with no mention about her pregnancy or reference to a new addition.
If she is pro life then why would she not mention this when specifically asked. I wonder about this.
