The McCain campaign is keeping mum, but from Fox, Sarah Palin.
- Governor of Alaska
- age 44
- Mother of Five
- Strongly pro life
- Believes in Global Warming
- Still thinks drilling off shore and ANWR
Palin says ‘Drill now!’
This is an interesting pick.
She is about as far from DC as one can get!!
UPDATE 1 !!
ITS OFFICIAL! from Fox News
from wiki (Hat Tip: Lovisa)
Highlights of Governor Palin’s tenure include a successful push for an ethics bill, and also shelving pork-barrel projects supported by fellow Republicans. Palin successfully killed the Bridge to Nowhere project that had become a nationwide symbol of wasteful earmark spending. “Alaska needs to be self-sufficient, she says, instead of relying heavily on ‘federal dollars,’ as the state does today.”
She has challenged the state’s Republican leaders, helping to launch a campaign by Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell to unseat U.S. Congressman Don Young and publicly challenging Senator Ted Stevens to come clean about the federal investigation into his financial dealings. Palin supports holding occasional legislative sessions outside the state capital, and municipal revenue sharing to help local governments
!!! UPDATE 2 !!!
Obama Campaign Reaction:
“Today John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heart beat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain’s commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of big and continuing George Bush’s failed economic policies — that’s not the change we need, it’s just more of the same.”
– Bill Burton
Hey Bill! She is a Governor, she is in charge of the National Guard in her state you rube. Each of our states conducts its own foreign policy, you hack!
The more negative the response from the Obama campaign the better. Attack the woman! That will bring all the Hillary voters home to vote for you. The lady will be made of teflon.
