Jonh McCain picks Governor Palin for Vice Presidential running mate!
Hey no shit (I mean as in "that is cool", not like "yeah, no kidding")...I was just looking at Yahoo and saw that.
I'm pretty psyched. I figure that anyone that Alaskans would elect is a "no bullshit", "by the bootstraps" kind of person. So, OK, I know that I'm casting a broad stroke...but I have my misconceptions and preconceived notions...
I'm hoping I'm right. I'd love to have a pragmatic, non-whiner in the running on either side.
This should be interesting!
And she's an adventure rider.......well on her 4 wheeler and snowmachine.
I really, truly wish her and her family the very best during the runout of this incredible, historic gig. She's making/taking a tremendous leap for Women, Alaska, and, I pray, for the USA.
What a gal!
We can also find solace in that we know she's ready for Washington D.C.:fully accustomed to pitching guts and carcasses, and has her own chest waders... still, that cesspool in D.C. will be a challenge!
Thank You to all Alaskans who voted, too! None of this would be even a footnote during this election, except that y'all trusted her enough to vote her in... that's noteworthy!
She sounds kick ass!
And she knows the game, too. Just ask her ex bro-in-law. An influence rich environment.
No way!?!? Seriously?!?!
Wow, pretty amazing IMO. Kinda cool. What an honor.
I just want our airport name changed back to Anchorage International.
Political ignoramus by choice, Mark H.
And she's cute too! Just an added bonus you know.
Pretty serious holy shit/wow factor around town today.......made me pretty happy. It will be interesting to see how a "real regular person" will do in the fake/plastic world of DC.:huh
OK, so I'm from NJ, right, probably not entitled to an opinion...but I think that Alaska and few other states still have what it takes to produce non-simpering, DIY citizens.
McCain fired his campaign manager because the guy said America is full of whiners, or some such. He was right.
I don't know if "we" (you, me, others here who are "DIYers" and who take responsibility for their actions/inaction--I can provide a better explanation of what I mean if that's too weird) are in the minority or if the whiners just have the amplified mic...but I'm glad that someone with some hutspa has got a shot!
Good job Alaska, McCain and the GOP! I think it's a whole new ballgame now.
"OK, so I'm from NJ, right, probably not entitled to an opinion..."
Everyone's intitled to their opinion, especially you, since we both agree!
I think the Dems are really under estimating Palin and hopefully will continue to do so.
I am stunned and thrilled, this is going to be interesting.
Governor is running for vice president.
Lt Governor is running for senate.
Who's manning the ship? Joseph Hazelwood?
Don't worry...Juneau Dave and I are down here in Juneau - we've got things under control!
