Very crafty.....get the disgruntled Hillary supporters....

Her name is Sarah Palin, the gov of Alaska.
If they won, I bet McCain would routinely slap her on the ass and call her "Toots"...
wanna bet Romney went from being the #1 pick to out of the running during McCain's interview when he didn't know how many houses he had? the *last* thing the republicans needed was two multi-millionaire old white guys with multiple houses.
Good play on his part I think. She's young and I could see the Obama going after her for the same sort of 'inexperience' issues he's been slapped with which i think would be a bad move.
That was a damn awesome tactical maneuver on McCain's part IMHO
inexperienced newcomer and stodgy old white guy
stodgy old white guy and inexperienced newcomer?
this election needs it's own theme music...it plays out like a sitcom.
She is certainly a hell of a lot easier on the eyes than McCain.
Who's with me?
this could be a "good" strategy, but it's blatantly obvious why he waited until AFTER obama chose his VP now. IMO McCain had it narrowed down to two people, a woman, and HOPEFULLY Romney. He then strategically waited until obama chose his VP, and made his decision from there. If Obama had chosen Hillary as his running mate, the decision would have been different.
Yeah, it's hard to believe McCain chose someone for the sole purpose of helping him win the election.
Will not work. The 'merican white boys will not handle a chick AND a brother running for the White House. Bob Barr has to be LHAO at this...
He should pick someone who can lead the nation if and when he kicks over from the heart attack Iran is gonna give him.
F'n Alaska just voted in Ted Stephens in the primary while he's waiting for a court trail!!! Hell of a state to pick a leader from...
This will bite him in the ass....
Oh, but on the other hand...
I loved her work on the overstock.com commercials.
it IS hard to believe, especially at a time like this. The US is turning to ****, and it's the fact that candidates are running on looks rather than actual issues now. BOTH parties need to step up and actually start caring about who they are selecting to run the country. The only way to send this message is to not vote based on race or sex (which is what it has come down to). I can almost guarantee if obama wins, the next cards will be "white man / black man." The same goes with McCain, if he wins, it will always be "white man/ white woman, white woman/ black man, and white man/black woman"
This is what the country has come to, by "trying" to eliminate racism and sexism we are just making it a bigger issue. I'm moving to canada.
Great pick...can you say pandering? No international experience, limited experience in her home state...Wasilla is a bodaciously small town. I lived near there in the early 90s. Then it had 3k people or so...
She can do what for him? Load the campaign mini van? Good looking lady, but terrible pick.
For some reason, I thought of Fight Club
"Her Name is Sarah Palin."
"Her Name is Sarah Palin."
"Her Name is Sarah Palin."
Dan Quale in a pant suit.
Biden = club, Palin = baby seals
There is a good chance that this will backfire on him. McCain's main attack is that Obama lacks experience, yet McCain picks a running mate with even less experience. Her only qualification is that she lacks a penis. An obvious ploy to try to win over Hilary's supporters
There is a natural comparison between Palin and Dan Quayle.
Both seem totally unqualified for VP, much less President. I believed Quayle was Bush Sr. choice because of ego issues. I assume Palin is McCain's choice to court the women and the conversatives.
While Lloyd Bentson destroyed Quayle in the debate, it didn't matter with Dukakis running for President. Obama is not Dukakis, so I wonder how much is the "Is Palin ready to become President" card will be played.
And the blacks were never going to vote for McCain anyway.
Potential McCain Oval Office, 0900 on a Wednesday, March 09:
McC: Could you ring the VP for me?
McC: Sugar, could you come on over for this security meeting?
VP: Yessir, Mr. President, anything you need?
McC: Sure sweetie, bring a couple of coffees for me and SecState Ridge, wouldya?
McC: (covers phone) This dames a real peach, Tom, a real honey..<wink>
VP: Uh, sir, I, uh..don't believe that's my job, I uh am the Veep, after all..
McC: Sure, sure, whatever. In fact, never mind Toots, call Cindy and you two can hit up the bridge club today, me and the boys here will handle it.
McC to Ridge: Must be that time of the month, hehehe..
Is having a young(er) and inexperienced running mate the only way to attract the "young" vote? Definitely not, but it can't hurt McCain, a crusty old man who is completely out of touch with younger generations. Palin, at best, shoots some much needed youth into his campaign. At worst...
The 18-30 demographic is not well represented by a "Hockey Mom".
P.S. I would have liked Condi Rice. That's someone who a lot of people who get their minds wrapped around.
They are in Simsbury.
It's not her youth I question, but the lack of experience. If McCain kicks it in office (wonder what the odds in Vegas will be) does she have the experience to take over. At least if Obama gets assasinated in office, Biden would be able to take the reins
I like the pick.
Who the hell else was he going to pick? Romney? He is up there on the douche scale about level with Gore. Not likable = no help.
This pick took balls, and I can guarantee you that there were a TON of stiff lipped Republicans begging McCain not to do it.
But the reason I like it is because of all the blowhards out there who are both racist and sexist. So Bubba, you want it in the rear or the mouth, you gotta pick one!
F*ck me, McCain is a terrible speaker, bloody hell, just watched it on the BBC. Is this sheila any relation to Michael Palin?
**** Please do not use this as an excuse to go off on whole pages of Monty Python dialogue. Thank you****
Certain groups are pretty much decided already:
Conservatives are voting McCain, liberals Obama.
Bringing in Biden might appeal to some conservatives looking for a white man with foreign policy experience and a son in Iraq. I am not sure which liberals will think a pro-life, pro-drilling woman is a good move.
The real question is how this will play with the undecided voters, particularly in the battleground states. Most of them are in my eyes conservative but relatively moderate.
Possibly a non-offensive white woman will have a lot of appeal in those places.
"Find me someone that makes me look even older. Palin? Oh yeah, THAT'S IT!"
uh on Behalf of Canada please stay WTF you are
They will just have an old white guy behind the scenes telling obama what to do.
Here, try this copy pasta. It's real good.
Wow, McCain with the loss. Yikes, what a terrible choice. She has no international experience at all and barely any domestic experience. Did he let Dubya choose for him?
"C'mon John, lemme make one pick for ya huh, huh??"
Oh and not voting at all, ya, real productive. Morons.
