The McCain/Palin Ticket, w/ Video

The tickets are complete.  It’s Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin.  In a race with so many historic implications, John McCain has topped them all.  No matter where you turn or who you vote for, your a part of history.

Sarah Palin’s pick shows John McCain is okay with rolling the dice a little.  He apparently saw no way of getting 51% in the polls without Palin, or someone like her.  Many will say this is a blatant show of good faith to Hillary Clinton supporters.  And my response is, that is exactly right.  But that’s not a bad thing. 

Personally, I was sick and tired of my party being called the old white men’s party.  The Palin pick shatters that assertion.  She is an example of the new, dynamic, and fine leaders that are coming out of the GOP.

On a purely political line, the pick pretty much tells Obama to stop running ads in Alaska.  This pick is also a direct jab at the DNC for the last week.  The Democrats tried so hard to unify their party, and here’s Sarah Palin to rip that up and play to Hillary backers.  Palin is the only executive of the four candidates.  The Obama camp has already bashed Palin’s supposed lack of experience, especially foreign policy.  That would be true of any other Governor, but not Palin.  Many do not realize how close Alaska is to Russia.  The Alaskan Governor must defend our natural resources, and Palin is the one that has done it.

Overall, she satisfies the 2008 demands of the party.  Young.  An executive.  A conservative.  Energy cred. (Substitute for economy).  And a political shocker (the DNC didn’t attack her on their GOP VP site, “The Next Cheney”.  And on top of it all she could be the first woman vice-President.

Not to channel Chris Mathews, but I don’t get a shiver up my spine very often.  I did just a few moments ago.  The moment when Sarah Palin said that almost 88 years to the day when women gained the right to vote, we could have a female vice-President.  It was an unbelievable moment, and Sarah Palin was an unbelievable pick.

Update: Hotair has the full announcement.

McCain’s Vice President Thread, Update: It’s Sarah Palin

As I roll out of my slumber, I see…

  …that on Drudge.

 

Then THIS from Fox News, saying Romney and (sob, sob,) Tim Pawlenty are out.

Then CNBC has a source that claims its Palin.  This is big because she has a good rep. with the network and has appeared there numerous times.

Next, from the Christian News Wire, THIS.  Another source that says Palin.

But, what I believe is the biggest source and evidence that it’s Palin is…

THIS.  From the the Dayton Daily News…

According to Rich Bevis of B&B Aero, the fixed-based operator at Hook Field, the jet, a Gulfstream IV which has the flight range to fly from Alaska to Europe, landed at about 10:15 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 28.

Bevis said the woman “was a real close match to Palin” and added that the flight crew that’s based in the Seattle area was told to fly to Anchorage to pick up their party and fly to Middletown.

In my opinion, I would predict now that it is Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska, to be the Vice President for John McCain.

As I’m listening to Laura Ingraham, she and her listeners are ecstatic about Palin.  Ingraham called it “sheer brilliance”.

    more to come…..

Now Politico says that it’s Palin.  The Chicago Tribune is the first big paper to say Palin.  And on top of it, CBSsays that Palin’s husband told Palin’s parents to “listen to the radio” this morning.  The Page has a good recap. of all the reports.

Here’s Palin’sWIKI page.  That’s her bio.

It’s Official: AP says Palin is McCain’s pick for VP.

-First VP from Alaska

-2nd female on VP ticket ever.

-Now, the only executive of the four on the tickets.

     

There it is.  AND I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!  Analysis to come…
