So McCain picks Gov. Sarah Palin as his Veep.
Sarah Palin? Who is she?
Well she's...well, not a powerful woman but she's something.
Sarah Palin is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and takes part in two of the state's popular pastimes -- fishing and hunting, according to her biography on the governor's Web site. Palin has focused on energy and natural resources policy during her short stint in office, and she is known for her support of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
And her career stuff is this: Television sports reporter, 1987-89; co-owner, commercial fishing operation, 1988-2007; owner, snow machine, watercraft and all-terrain vehicle business, 1994-97; chairwoman, Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, 2003-2004.
Not much, but she's pro-life and a christian. But seriously, where did he find her? This former beauty queen is not as skilled or aware of the nation. Her experience is lacking and she a unknown outside of Alaska.
McCain's hope of reaching women voters may have fallen short. She represents the woman of the past. Rice would have been the super choice, but this woman? Please, she just another christian soccer mom who runs a state that's darker before dawn. Plus, who you want a Veep, who could be Prez with no experience? She HAS NONE!
McCain, honey, not a good choice. Oh, and she currently under investigation in her own state...shady, shade.
