The media is going crazy over McCain’s pick of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for his running mate. Obviously, he’s trying to appeal to the female vote, but when a person voted against the Domestic Violence Act, was absent for the vote on Equal Work for Equal Pay and is pro-life, it wouldn’t matter if he promises a cabinet entirely made of women. McCain has a ZERO record on women’s rights. Congrats to Palin, but my immediate reaction is that this is a losing strategy. If McCain could have somehow channeled Reagon and picked a VP he didn’t get along with, Romney, I’d think we really have a race on our hands. But chosing the largely-unknown female governor from Alaska who is under investigation? Too easy for the Democrats – just another corrupt Republican. That’s not the change we need! haha. Biden’s going to crush her during the debates. It’s almost mean for McCain to do this to her.
I’m not even upset that no one is talking about Obama’s speech. The Palin pick will bring the Democrats more votes than Obama’s triumphant address.
Isn’t the first priority of picking a VP that they can be president? And McCain is so old, he could drop any minute. So, McCain thinks Palin is ready to be president and not Obama?! She was mayor of a town smaller than my high school before she became governor of that far away state. This is PROOF McCain’s judgment is deeply flawed. Poor Republicans. This is a major malfunction on their part. It’s like Christmas for Democrats – or more like Hannukkah because Palin is going to be the gift that keeps on giving. Talk about on-the-job training.
They keep playing clips of McCain from Palin’s coming out party and even he doesn’t seem that excited about her.
