this is too freaking good. i couldn't have written this any better if i'd tried.

let's see.
the dems didn't put a woman on the ticket. the republicans did.
there's no way the dems can use the relative inexperience of the veep, since their presidential candidate is guilty of inexperience as well. any traction they might have gotten is completely blown out of the water.
crap, i love politics. this is a great participatory spectator sport.

and she carries a gun, and knows how to use it, according to a news program i watched about her last year. how cool is that?

Oh man I about died when I saw McCain's VP choice. I told my wife that I was starting to get worried but now I know we have it in the bag!

See all of you at the celebration party!

This choice was brilliant; so, obviously it was made by someone close to McCain because he's incapable of even marginal rational thought. I think and hope this will be the key to a winning ticket, but I'm holding back celebrating until I see what level of socialism McCain will introduce because it is for certain that is not a small government, anti-nanny state conservative.

She's also easy on the eyes, which in and of itself is a blessing considering the likes of Nancy Pelosi, "Dirty" Harry Reid and some of the other oooglies in Congress.

Loddfafnir. Your governor is welcome to shoot my governor anytime she feels like it. All she has to do is come to Taxachusetts and ask for "Cadillac Deval". She needs to watch him, though. The devil is for sure packin' a silver tongue.

Recall John "Windbag" Kerry's attempt to walk into a gun shop and ask where "I can GIT me a huntin' license"? Well, Senator, this Governor packs heat--and knows where to "git" a license to do it!

Can't wait to vote in a swing state! woo-hoo!

Sarah Palin connects with 80% of the public on oil drilling. She is diva Nancy Pelosi's worst nightmare, and will do quite well in demonstrating female competence from an opposing view.

Many complain Palin has no foreign policy experience. We are reminded that oil pipelines have strategic international significance by Russia's recent intusion into Georgia.

Alaska not only has an oil pipeline and plans to build one for natural gas, but it has crude petro resources and a border on the contentious resources within the Arctic Circle to which Russia and Denmark have already already laid claim.

This remarkable woman has mastery of Alaska's energy policy in a state where some residents can see Russian territory with their naked eyes only 2.4 miles from Alaska's Little Diomede Island.

In truth, Palin has more foreign policy experience than Arkansas's Gov. Clinton had when he first laid claim to the WH. Fortunately, she is no draft dodger, either.

There is hope for the McCain ticket!

Vigilis, in addition to the information you cite doesn't the issue of fishing rights with the Japanese routinely receive the governor's attention?

Japanese, Koreans and Russians all routinely try to fish in Alaska's waters and are often boarded and turned around by USCG and NMFS assets in the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. Plus we've gone back to fighters out of Elmendorf escorting Russian Bear bombers near our airspace away from our border. The Cold War games of chicken are starting up again. Not that a few fronts ever really stopped, eh bubbleheads?

Subvet, I had forgotten about Alsaka's international fishing disputes. An excellent point, we must not overlook!

This is really a coup by the McCain ticket.
She is smart, has integrity, has worked hard to get where she is at.

Hell, I would vote for her if she was on the front end of the ticket.
