And after the hoopla that was the Democrat Party, the biggest news ever was… John McCain chooses Sarah Palin as his running mate. Sarah who? A female vice presidential candidate on the Republican ticket? Unheard of! What a way to upstage Obama!
After initially learning about who she is (and reading her Wikipedia page) the social conservative branch (a big branch at that) of the Republican party went nuts. Is she for real? Can this be too good to be true?
Some are accusing McCain of choosing her only because she is a woman. There may be some of that, but if that was the case, why not Condoleezza Rice? And don’t tell me the reverse isn’t true. I know of prolife Republicans who are voting Obama simply because he has African blood.
Truth is, she is a no nonsense, gun totin’, sports fanatic, business owning, middle American woman, beauty queen, someone hard working Americans feel they can relate to and trust. As this election heats up, we’ll learn more about her, for better or for worse. But for now, Republicans couldn’t be happier
