Therefore, we are officially endorsing the movement to draft Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska for Vice-President of the United States.
With the dynamics of the current state in the campaign, it would seem extremely logical to pick Governor Sarah Palin. She is the first female Governor of Alaska and the youngest. She is one of two true conservatives that we have lauded on this site, and now feel is better suited to be VP for John McCain. Sarah Palin is what the conservative base is looking for. In a article today on Real Clear Politics, Jack Kelly summed it up pretty nice,
"Ms. Palin touches other conservative bases, some of which Sen. McCain has been accused of rounding. Track, her eldest son, enlisted in the Army last Sept. 11. She's a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association who hunts, fishes and runs marathons. A regular churchgoer, she's staunchly pro-life."
"Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal said Sen. McCain should run against a corrupt, do-nothing Congress, a la Harry Truman. If he should choose to do so, Gov. Palin would make an excellent partner."
What she has done in Alaska is ground breaking. It just shows how conservative leadership is the best way to govern in our republic.
I'm laughing. You guys are completely freaked out that he chose someone interesting--a woman. You're buggin. A bridge...pork someone ELSE ordered up....told to keep the money....It's NOTHING!
It's no big deal in and of itself. But giving her props for stopping the "bridge to nowhere" without mentioning that Alaska kept $233 million dollars and simply spent the money elsewhere isn't portraying the full picture either...
