    Default McCain announces VP pick

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/08/...ate/index.html

    Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska.

    Who the fuck saw this coming?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Nobody did. Thats why i thought it'd would have been good for Obama to pick Tim Kaine or somebody else outside of Washington. But this pick will definitely put a damp on Obama's campaign. Lets just wait and see how the people react to this or if the people are stupid enough to vote for her just because she's a woman.

    Well McCain went in the completely opposite direction of Obama with his VP choice. But maybe he went too far. Whats her experience? A Degree in journalism at the university of Idaho, sports reporter, two terms on some city counsel in Alaska, and Governor of Alaska?

    Seems more like a ploy to me to get the swing women voters that are mad that Hilary lost, cant see any other reason for choosing her...

    I dunno. Shes got some pretty strong social conservative credentials (Son with Down's Syndrome and still rabidly pro-life!?) and she enacted some strong reform in Alaska in a very short period of time. Plus shes cute so she'll win male voters who are distressed that their girlfriends and wives would totally get with Obama.

    I just heard on the radio that she's under investigation for bribing someone to get her brother a job in the McCain campaign.

    Lol. Shes under investigation for firing someone for NOT firing her brother in law or something.

    American women can't be that stupid to actually fall for this one.
    It's a really desperate act fom McCain's part.

    Srsly. She's going to serve one purpose and one purpose alone: to attract women voters on the sole reason that she's a woman.

    Yes They are that stupid, these are the same people who re-elected Bush-Cheney in 2004.

    i agree with mojo. there are still a bunch of miffed Hillary voters that will easily get swayed by this. it was a pretty good choice by McCain, since they needed someone young to balance it out.
